If you’ve been wondering whether or not Gengetone is on its deathbed then perhaps you should listen to the new jam by Ochunglo Family, Boondocks Gang and Addi Chokoch.
The song titled Sambusa proves that the sound which became popular circa 2018 is very much alive and we can’t just wish it away.
If you ask me, and I know you won’t, it is probably one of the best Gengetone tracks that have been released since the new decade began because it’s so infectious.
I’ve listened to this song a couple of times since it was released and every time I play it, it’s like I’m hearing it for the very first time. Yup, it’s that good ladies and gentlemen.
One of the things that I totally love about these youngins is their creativity. Their ability to match random words and make them rhyme is quite impressive.
If you choose to ignore the dirty things that they are singing about, you will probably agree with me that they are the best thing that has ever happened to the Kenyan industry at large.
Addi Chokoch never ceases to amaze me. As I was listening to this jam, I began wondering where he has disappeared because it’s been a minute since I heard a song from him. He totally killed the hook for Sambusa.
Ochunglo Family members namely; Nelly The Goon and Ex Ray also did good job. However, if I had to pick one who swept me off my feet with his lyricism then I would go for the latter nevermind the rique things that he was saying.
Maddox and Ex Ray also brought their A-games on this jam but in this case I feel the former outshone the latter but I know some of you will disagree with me. Anyway, to each his own.
The beat on this track is impeccable. As you;re listening to it, you won’t resist the urge to dance. I don’t have much to say about the video since the format is the same with most Gengetone jams but I feel it works.
Watch Sambusa below and tell us what you think. Enjoy!
