The gospel industry has many talented artists, ther’s no deny that. This easily evidenced by the numerous gospel hits that we are trated to every now and then.
Apart from having talented gospel singers, Kenya also has talented songwriters i.e. people who can write a song that you will feel is speaking to you the fist time you listen to it.
Of the many songwriters, I singled out three because I’d like to know from you who is the best of the best.
The three artists that I picked are; Moji Short Baba, Guardian Angel and Pitson.
I agree that it’s not really a competition. Look at it like this, if you were stuck in a room and you had to listen to one of them for the whole day, who would you pick?
Moji Short Baba
He’s among the most sought-after gospel songwriters. Apart from writing his own songs, Moji was the brains behind most of DK Kwenye Beat’s songs in the last one year, including Kijana Wa Kayole, Kwa Yesu Sawa.
He also wrote Kumbe Kumbe by Bahati and Mr. Seed.
He mostly writes his songs but as you listen you can tell that he put a lot of work into them.
He wrote Daddy Owen’s Vanity, Size 8’s Afadhali Yesu and Pale Pale, Makena’s Narudi, Laura Karwirwa’s Ni Neema Yako, among others.
So, tell us, who do you think is the best songwriter?
