Kenyan singer Michael Claver Odhiambo, alias Naiboi, has really slowed down this year and this begs the question, is he okay? Has he lost his mojo? Is something big cooking?
You see, I’m such a huge fan of the Dinda hit maker. I always look forward to his releases but this year I feel like his latest music is tasteless, but then again I could be wrong. Maybe he has something big in the works and we have no clue.
Since the year began, Naiboi has released two songs namely; Somaga and Bungee Jump excluding collabos. If you have been his fan since way back, you’ll also agree that both songs are neither here nor there. Put simply, they are just flat.
It took 14 years for him to become a household name and when he finally did in 2017 we thought he would keep up the momentum, more so after he released 2 in 1 – a song that went on to become one of 2018’s biggest jams.
We are six months into the year. Well, you could say 7 because we only have a few days to wrap up this month. The reason I’m worried is because Naiboi is yet to give us a hit. The only explanation could be that he’s working on something.
Or is that we expect too much from him? Should lower our expectations? Maybe, just maybe, he just got too comfortable after releasing 2 in 1. Maybe something big is cooking like I said before. I honestly don’t know.
Truth is, I really look forward to the day that he’ll treat us to another jam like Too Much, Smooth Criminal, Kidege, 4Mulla, I Wanna Be, Ding Dong, Dinda, Usipime Mwanaume, 2 in 1 because that is the Naiboi we all came to love and appreciate.
