Kenyan dancehall singer Krg The Don, whose rel name is Karuga Kimani, has released a new track and I have mixed feelings about it.
Also read: Stop asking musicians what else they do!
The song titled Kairetu is about a lass that the musician can’t get enough of. He claims she is so beautiful and wants her all to himself.
I honestly don’t know what to make of this song because it’s a big step-down if you compare it with some of the jams that he released last year like Nyandus, Mathogothanio and Kuroria.
I know that Kairetu is a different sound but I would rather he continues doing collabos with Gengetone artists rather than making a song which is so uninspired like this one.
As I was listening to this song, I kept thinking how Krg The Don, who claims to be the richest musician in the region, went ahead and shot a video for it. If you ask me, it didn’t even deserve a video.
The lyrics for Kairetu are lazy to say the least and it makes you wonder why some musicians can not set aside time to perfect their craft because from where I sit, it seems he composed the song in less than 10 minutes.
Krg The Don has a unique voice and he has the potential of becoming one of the best dancehall artists not only in this country but the whole of Africa and he just needs to get out of his comfort zone.
That aside, the beat by Sadafa was dope, too bad Krg The Don wasted it. The video is also sort of monotonous since it seems the musician just wanted to show off his Porsche 911 Turbo S. We get it Krg, you are filthy rich.
Watch Kairetu below and tell us what you think.
