We just don’t get Victoria Kimani

If at all there is any Kenyan artist that most of us don’t understand and we don’t even bother to then it’s Victoria Kimani. Well, you could argue that she is not one of us because she is based in Nigeria but she’s really Kenyan.

In my opinion, the Prokoto hitmaker should be one of the most successful artists in this continent (yes, the whole of Africa not just Kenya) since she has a good fan base in both Nigeria and Kenya. Well, I’m not completely sure about the latter but you get my point.

You see, despite coming from Kenya, Victoria Kimani can’t relate to many of us. She makes music for her West African audience so much so that many people think that she comes from that part of the continent.

Victoria Kimani

In Kenya, she’s deemed as a foreign artist which is funny because her brother Bamboo made a mark in the local entertainment scene in the early 2000s with the mega hit Compe. If you are from this era, I’m sure you remember this jam.

For a long time, Victoria has tried to make inroads in the local music industry and I doubt even her latest jam with Hart The Band dubbed Bad Manners will serve to this purpose. In my opinion, she should just make music and just go about her life.

You see, Kenyans are so hard to impress and once they have a certain perception of you it sticks. Most people think that Victoria is a snob and is arrogant so even if she asks people to listen to her music or turn up for a show, they just don’t care. Like I said, we just don’t get her.

Listen to her collabo with Hart The Band below dubbed Bad Manners.


Gwaash links up with K4Kanali and Josephil on ‘Bad Manners’ (Video)

Celebrated Kenyan singer Martin Wagura, better known as Fatboy Gwaash or Gwaash, has dropped a new track with K4Kanali and Josephil from Team Psycho and it is getting a lot of love from their fans.

The jam titled Bad Manners has been ruling the airwaves since it came out a few hours ago and to be honest, we also love it.


I have listened to this song a couple of times since it came out and every time I listen to it, it’s like I am hearing it for the very first time. Yup, it’s that’s good.

One of the reasons why I love Gengetone and the artists behind it is because of their sheer creativity. These guys can come up with random rhymes and it’s just awesome to listen to them as they play around with words.

I am a huge fan of K4Kanali and if you ask me, he totally nailed the hook and his verse in this track. He has a natural flow and to add to that, his deep baritone really sets him apart.

As expected, Gwaash also aced it. He also has an impeccable flow though I must admit that sometimes I feel like he is talking through his verse rather than singing.


Josephil from Team Pycho also did a good job. He is also interesting to listen to and I must say that I’m going to look out for his music and verses henceforth.

The beat is also on point. Other than the fact that it’s very catchy, which simply means that you might get up to dance as you listen to this song, it blends well with the voices and tempos of the artists.

About the video, I do not really know. Not that I have any problem with it but I feel that more needs to be done when it comes quality, concept and location. Anyway, big up to Gwaash, K4Kanali and Josephil.
