Tanzanian singer Elias Barnabas, popularly known as Barnaba Classic and famed for his Lover Man hit, has dropped a new jam with Bonge La Nyau and we are really feeling it.
The song titled Kitochi, which is a Swahili word that means flashlight, is about a certain lad who is promising a pretty lass heaven on earth if she agrees to fall in love with him.
Clearly, this guy is smitten. In the song, he admits that she has all the qualities that he desires, from her dreamy eyes to her beauty to the smell of her perfume, everything about her is driving this guy crazy.
I really love this song. I know you must be wondering what is there to even like about this song since men sing about ladies all the damn time. Well, there is so much.
Firstly, Barnaba did a decent job on the hook. Chances are, it will stick the first time you listen to this song. It’s really beautiful.
It goes like, “Ebu wachana na vitochi, nitakununulia smartiphoni baby, na ulivyo baby fesi, kila mara mi nitakuposti, msitubane bane, hayaingiliwi mapenzi mkipendana wawili mapenzi, hayaingiliwi mapenzi wapendanapo wawili.”
Bonge La Nyau also nailed IT. If you like rap, then you should listen to Swahili rap because it’s out of this world, I am not even kidding.
The audio and video for this jam were also dope, especially the former. It puts you in a good mood from the moment you hit the play button. Props to the producer!
Watch Kitochi below and tell us what you think.
