Celebrated Kenyan singer Martin Wagura, better known as Fatboy Gwaash or Gwaash, has dropped a new track with Ex Ray (Boondocks Gang), G Rock and Shagwah (34 GVNG) and we are really feeling it.
The track titled Mtaro has been topping local music charts since it came out a few days ago and it’s not really hard to understand why. Ladies and gentlemen, this song is really dope. I’m not exaggerating.
Like I always say, if you chose to ignore the raunchiness of the lyrics and focus on the wordplay and rhymes, you will realize that some of these Gengetone are amazing lyricists.
I’ve been listening to this jam on repeat over the last few days and one things is for sure, it’s really infectious. I don’t know if it’s just me but this is one of the best Gengetone jams that I’ve listened to since the year began.
The verses on Mtaro are so sick. For instance, you have to admit that Ex Ray did a good job. This chap has a unique ability to play around with words and you just want to keep listening to him.
As expected, Fatboy Gwaash also nailed it. Apart from his unique voice, his flow is so good that you would think that he wrote the lyrics while asleep. I don’t know if this makes any sense because it sounded okay in my head.
Shagwah, who is a member of 34 GVNG, did not disappoint either. He has a knack for telling stories and believe you me, you’ll be hooked to his verse as soon as he starts rapping.
The trio that make up G Rock Music i.e Madra, Boy Bleezy and Tratic also have some impeccable rhymes. Actually, I am disappointed that I discovered them late but as they say, better late than never.
The beat is catchy and it gets you in a party mood the moment you hit the play button and that is not a bad thing or is it? The video is simple but I feel it works for this song since they shot it in a stream and they’re singing about mtaro.
Watch Mtaro below and tell us what you think.
