Hype Ochi, the gospel singer who treated Kenyans to the infectious Odi Dance alongside Jabidii and Timeless Noel is back with a new jam alongside talented songstress Maxyn Stephanie and we love it.

The song titled Deni talks about how Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross. The main message is that we have redemption through his blood.
There are several reasons why I love this song. The first one is very obvious and that is that Maxyn’s voice is so sweet, you just want to keep listening to her.
She did a great job on the hook. It goes like, “Yesu alilipa deni, alilipa deni, Yesu alilipa deni, niko set, niko fresh, me sina deni*3.”
Secondly, Hype Ochi also came through on this jam. He proves his creativity in this song thanks to his witty rhymes and smooth wordplay. You’ll also notice that his style in this jam is different form Odi Dance, KDF and the likes.
The third and last reason is that I think the audio producer – Again Go Sevil, did a good job – on the beat. However, if we are being completely honest, you’ll notice that the beat is similar with that of thousands of gospel songs.
Listen to Deni below and tell us what you think.
