Nelly The Goon, who is one third of Na Iwake hitmakers Ochunglo Family, has released a new jam and we are really feeling it.

The song dubbed Gorokia, which is a Kikuyu word that means ‘go crazy’, has been getting a lot of airplay since it was released a few days ago and to be honest, we are also feeling it.
I totally love this jam. I have listened to it a couple of times since it was released and every time I play it, it’s like I am hearing it for the very first time. Yup, it’s that good.
Nelly The Goon – who happens to be my favourite Ochunglo Family member – really showcased his wordplay skills in Gorokia.
He has a unique ability to come up with random rhymes from words that don’t even have the same suffix and it does sound very pleasant to the ears though I am sure some will say that this is watered down version of Nelly The Goon.
I must agree that when Nelly The Goon is with his group mates i.e. Benzema (Alejhandro) and Dmore, his wordplay skills seem way better and his delivery is more solid compared to when he is on a track alone.
That aside, the beat on this jam is on point. Other than the fact that it’s catchy, I am sure you will agree with me that it’s really danceable – not that I would know anything about that.
Listen to Gorokia below and tell us what you think.
