Like many people, I was a huge fan of Camp Mulla in their heyday and that explains my excitement when I saw that a former member of the group – Shappaman – has teamed up with Magix Enga on a new track.
The song titled Fake simply talks about how we surround ourselves with people who do not have our best interests at heart while lying to ourselves that they do.
The truth is that at times you think people want to help you while they have their own selfish interests that they want to actualize and you are just a stepping stone to help them get where they want to.
More than anything, Fake proves that Magix Enga is one of the most versatile artists that we have in Kenya right now because his style here is quite different from the songs that he has released previously.
Although this jam kind of is mellow, Magix Enga managed to sneak in some impeccable rhymes in his verse that will definitely make you scratch your head as you try to make sense of it all.
As expected, Shappaman also killed it. You know we have gotten used to him as an uptown rapper and I was actually surprised that some of his lines were in Swahili and they were sounding just okay.
This jam bridges the gap between uptown and Gengetone artists and I’m not surprised that the outcome is more than exceptional. I really love it.
I’m not saying that the beat and instrumentation are bad, they are actually really dope and catchy. Its only that it will take time for many of us to get used to the slow tempo and mellow vibe.
Watch Fake below and tell us what you think.
