Kenyan singer Steven Otieno, better known as Stivo Simple Boy and famed for his Mihadarati hit has released a new jam alongside Byzzo The Baddest, Vaal and the Made In Kibera Band and it’s a big tune.

The song titled We Shall Overcome is dedicated to people who are facing challenges, including those affected directly or indirectly by Corona virus which has led to the deaths of more than 20,000 people, that things will get better.

The underlying message in this jam is that we should be brave as we face challenges and not let our problems kill our hopes for a brighter and better future. Put simply, it shall all come to pass just as it dawns after the dark.

I’m so in love with We Shall Overcome. I’ve listened to it a couple of times since it was released and every time I play it, I get the feeling that I am listening to it for the very first time and that is how you know a song is dope.

Although I’m a big fan of Stivo Simple Boy coupled with the fact that he had a dope verse on this jam, I must say that I was really impressed by the Made In Kibera Band more than anything. Their harmonies give me life.

The way they sing, you feel like there is nothing that you can not conquer in this life and I look forward to listening to more songs from them.

Byzzo The Baddest also had a dope verse. This guy has a smooth and natural flow that will leave you with your finger stuck on the replay button.

The instrumentation on this jam is mellow and this allows you to digest the message that the artists are trying to pass through the song. I don’t really have much to say about the video seeing as it was recorded in a studio.

Watch We Shall Overcome below and tell us what you think. Enjoy.
