Talented songstress Barbara Chemutai Ng’eno has teamed up with Tetu Shani on a jam and we absolutely love it. No, like really.

Dubbed Legend, the song is the third release for the once a month challenge (OSAM) featuring Sage Chemutai, Tetu Shani and 2 other Kenyan artists who have committed to dropping one song every month until December 2019.
This jam urges people to never give up even when things seem impossible. The message is that you will get through it eventually.
In the hook, Sage sings, “Even if the sun don’t shine I don’t mind, I just light a candle, even if my plans fall through, I hold on, cause I like to battle, even when it all falls (down*3), I keep my head high, wear my (crown*3).”
I really love this jam. As I was listening to it, I could not help but appreciate its authenticity and the glorious voices of both Tetu Shani and Sage Chemutai. This is the kind of songs that make you hit the replay button a couple of times.
The video concept for Legend was also really dope. It kind of reminded me of Makmende, the lad who starred in Just A Band’s Ha He. To add to that, they picked some good locations for the beat.
Lastly, I really loved the reggae pop beat and instrumentals. Although it really sounds like Bruno Mars’ Liquor Store Blues, you will still enjoy every second since it’s different.
Watch Legend below and tell us what you think.
Comme ci, comme ça
