Ochunglo Family keeps setting the pace for Gengetone artists

Today, we are not going to talk about whether the Gengetone genre is still a big deal or not. Instead, I we will to focus on a group that has been making waves with every new jam and that is the Ochunglo Family.

To be honest, to this very day, I’m yet to come across a song by Ochunglo Family that I didn’t like. Well, sometimes it takes a little bit of time before some of their song grow in me but I come to love them eventually.

The group which is made up of Benzema David alias Alejandro, Nelly The Goon and Dmore keeps setting the pace for other Gengetone artists because of their ingenuity.

The can turn almost anything into a track and you can rest assured that it will be a hit. The three musicians are some of the best lyricists that we have in Kenya at the moment so I’m sure it just child’s play to them.

I know people have varied opinions about their lyrics, with a vast majority saying that they are dirty. However, if you choose to focus on their rhymes and wordplay, you will realize that these guys are really talented.

The other thing that I like about Ochunglo Family is that they are always trying out new ideas. For instance their new jam titled Make Up is a 2 in 1 concept that has not been seen locally and they pulled it off.

When all is said and done, we’ll remember Benzema, Nelly The Goon and Dmore for playing a crucial role in pushing Gengetone and getting us back to appreciating local music.

Watch Make Up below and tell us what you think and please get good earphones for this.

Ochunglo Family, the super-talented Gengetone group that brought us hits like; Na Iwake, Mbingijii, Aluta, Kaa Na Mama Yako, Kirimino etc., is back with a new song and it’s a big tune.

The jam dubbed Make Up has been getting a lot of airplay on local TV and radio stations since it came out few hours ago and to be honest, we are also feeling it.

Ochunglo Family

Basically, this track highlights the fact that most women aren’t as beautiful as they appear because a number of them hide behind their make up. Ouch!

If you’re a big fan of Ochunglo Family, like myself, then you already know that this sing is lit even before you listen to it. Seriously though, when have they ever disappointed us?

All the three members of the group Dmore, Benzema (Alejandro) and Nelly The Goon are known to have dope flows. However, in this jam I was really impressed by the latter, especially the part where he calls out Ezekiel Mutua.

Ochunglo Family

Perhaps the most amazing thing about Make Up is that when you think it’s over the beat suddenly changes and Nelly The Goon and Benzema drop verses. Put simply, there are two songs in one.

I totally love the beat and instrumentation on this jam. Other than the fact that they make the song catchy, they also blend well with the artists’ flow, vibe and tempos. Kudos to Eric Musyoka for a good job.

The video is also dope. I was totally impressed by most of its aspects. Some of the things that caught my attention are the props, locations, lighting, smooth scene transitioning, concept, models and the general editing.

Watch Make Up below and tell us what you think. Enjoy!

Nelly The Goon treats fans to sizzling track ‘Gorokia’ (Video)

Nelly The Goon, who is one third of Na Iwake hitmakers Ochunglo Family, has released a new jam and we are really feeling it.

The song dubbed Gorokia, which is a Kikuyu word that means ‘go crazy’, has been getting a lot of airplay since it was released a few days ago and to be honest, we are also feeling it.

Nelly The Goon

I totally love this jam. I have listened to it a couple of times since it was released and every time I play it, it’s like I am hearing it for the very first time. Yup, it’s that good.

Nelly The Goon – who happens to be my favourite Ochunglo Family member – really showcased his wordplay skills in Gorokia.

He has a unique ability to come up with random rhymes from words that don’t even have the same suffix and it does sound very pleasant to the ears though I am sure some will say that this is watered down version of Nelly The Goon.

Nelly The Goon

I must agree that when Nelly The Goon is with his group mates i.e. Benzema (Alejhandro) and Dmore, his wordplay skills seem way better and his delivery is more solid compared to when he is on a track alone.

That aside, the beat on this jam is on point. Other than the fact that it’s catchy, I am sure you will agree with me that it’s really danceable – not that I would know anything about that.

Listen to Gorokia below and tell us what you think.

Ochunglo Family comes through on ‘Sambusa’ alongside Boondocks Gang and Addi Chokoch (Video)

If you’ve been wondering whether or not Gengetone is on its deathbed then perhaps you should listen to the new jam by Ochunglo Family, Boondocks Gang and Addi Chokoch.

The song titled Sambusa proves that the sound which became popular circa 2018 is very much alive and we can’t just wish it away.

Addi Chokoch with Dmore, Dark C and Hitman Kaht

If you ask me, and I know you won’t, it is probably one of the best Gengetone tracks that have been released since the new decade began because it’s so infectious.

I’ve listened to this song a couple of times since it was released and every time I play it, it’s like I’m hearing it for the very first time. Yup, it’s that good ladies and gentlemen.

One of the things that I totally love about these youngins is their creativity. Their ability to match random words and make them rhyme is quite impressive.

If you choose to ignore the dirty things that they are singing about, you will probably agree with me that they are the best thing that has ever happened to the Kenyan industry at large.

Addi Chokoch never ceases to amaze me. As I was listening to this jam, I began wondering where he has disappeared because it’s been a minute since I heard a song from him. He totally killed the hook for Sambusa.

Ochunglo Family members namely; Nelly The Goon and Ex Ray also did  good job. However, if I had to pick one who swept me off my feet with his lyricism then I would go for the latter nevermind the rique things that he was saying.

Maddox and Ex Ray also brought their A-games on this jam but in this case I feel the former outshone the latter but I know some of you will disagree with me. Anyway, to each his own.

The beat on this track is impeccable. As you;re listening to it, you won’t resist the urge to dance. I don’t have much to say about the video since the format is the same with most Gengetone jams but I feel it works.

Watch Sambusa below and tell us what you think. Enjoy!

‘Wabebe’ hitmakers 34 GVNG have teamed up with Ex Ray and Dmore on ‘Ka Ni Mtam’ and we love it (Video)

34 GVNG (Good Vibes No Guns), the group that treated us to the hit dubbed Wabebe alongside Gwaash, is back with a new jam featuring Ex Ray from Boondocks Gang and Dmore who is one third of Ochunglo Family.

The song dubbed Ka Ni Mtam simply talks about what you should do when she is too sweet. Actually, I feel ashamed writing about this but it is what it is.

I love this jam. If you chose to ignore the raunchiness and focus on the lyrics you’ll realize that it’s such a masterpiece – the creativity in it is unmatched.


I don’r really know who it is but I suspect that it must be Vuva on the first verse. This guy aced it. From the wordplay to the witty rhymes to the punchlines, everything was really on point.

Of course, Dmore also came through. For this lad, you can never really tell whether he is a dope lyricist or it’s how he expresses himself. Anyway, the bottom line is that he is good.

Notably, Ex Ray also did a good job. His verse was too lit. It goes like, ‘ka ni mtam nampatia za ma dumbolela, ka ni chura niko dianga ma zangalewa na zikishika zifike bana kamelewa, muchiri si unapenda masiri…”

The beat which was produced by the one and only Hitman Kaht was also impeccable. It keeps you hooked from the moment you hit the play button. Props to him.

Benzema (Alejandro) Vs Nelly The Goon: Who is the best lyricist in Ochunglo Family?

I have always held the opinion that Benzema (Alejandro) is the best lyricist. However, most people don’t seem to agree with me.

In their opinion, Nelly The Goon is the illest songwriter in the group, in their opinion, Ochunglo Family would be nothing him – a notion that I don’t agree with.

Admittedly, all the group members, including Dmore, are talented. They have treated us since they thrust into the limelight with Krimino and we are grateful.

However, I’d like us to settle this once and for all. I would like to know who is the best best lyricist between Benzema (Alejandro) and Nelly The Goon.


There’s just something unique about how he sings, maybe it’s his tendency to kind of drag words. I think he totally killed it in Na Iwake (Remix).

Nelly The Goon

There’s no deny that he dope lyricist. If you check the comments section of their videos on YouTube, you’ll find many people showering him with praise. My favourite verse by him is from their latest release Kaa Na Mama Yako.

That said, who is the baddest lyricist in Ochunglo Family between Nelly The Goon and Benzema (Alejandro). Leave a comment below.



Kenya’s best new-age musicians have teamed up for ‘Nare Nare’ and it’s a massive hit (Video)

Some of the biggest and baddest new-age musicians in Kenya have dropped a new jam dubbed Nare Nare and even before you listen to it, you know it’s a massive hit.

The song features Dmore (Ochunglo Family), Vuva (34 GVNG), The Boybleezy (G-Rock), Shagwah (Wanati), Jose and Mastar VK.

If this is not a perfect combination then I honestly don’t know what is ladies and gentlemen. I really don’t.

Ochunglo Family

In as much all the artists really came through on this jam, I really felt like Vuva, who is known for the Wabebe hit, outshone the others.

There’s just something about his verse that makes you want to listen to it again and again.

It goes like, “Who dea, who dea, huita bae fat body, uite gute gute go down low mummy, cheza gude gude, mi ni guze guze mpaka ustuke tu ee,  niku kune kune, underwater chini ya maji nikukumbe kumbe, we mtamu supu tamu ka ya kunde kunde, kitandani mtihani twende shule shule, now you know,  ni mashash na kibenga.”

Can someone please call the fire department? No, like seriously!

The song was produced by Hitman Kaht and directed by Kuria. In my opinion, they both did a commendable job.

Ochunglo Family will outlive all the new-age musicians, here’s why

I’m a huge fan of Ochunglo Family. I not only like their music but also how they carry themselves. At this point, I can confidently say that they will last longer in this industry than all the other new-age groups or solo artists.

Also read: New-age  musicians are giving established artists nightmares!

If you look at their music approach i.e. the songs that they have release and the collabos that they have done you’ll realise that Nelly The Goon, Benzema and Dmore are actually brilliant people and this reaffirms my line of thought.

If you remember well, we came to know about the group when Nelly teamed up with Dmore on Krimino. Incase you don’t know the background story, it was about an MCA who was complaining after being pepper sprayed in the Nairobi County Speaker’s office.

My point is they turned an funny clip that we’d ordinarily share on WhatsApp and forget about into a song and we all loved it, at least most of us did. The song blew up in a few days and before we knew it, they were on everyone’s lips simply because of their ingenuity.

The same case applies to their latest jam dubbed Kaa Na Mama Yako which was as a result of something West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo mentioned during a rally while warning certain people to stay away from his functions.

What Ochunglo Family does is to turn ordinary clips that we’ve all seen into songs and we consume their music because we can relate to it because let’s be honest I’m pretty sure you all watch the Lonyangapuo and krimino video before they infused them in their songs.

Every so often they release songs that have nothing to do with viral clips because they don’t want to be monotonous. They want to show us that they are actually talented. In my opinion, this is actually commendable or else we would have a song from Ochunglo Family about every viral clip.

If you also look at the collabos that they have done to date, you’ll realise that they are not random. In one way or the other, the songs played a big part in growing their fanbase and made up them who they are today.

Apart from being geniuses, I also realised that the three members of the group are actually mature. This is not just about age. If you’ve watched their interviews and seen how they carry themselves, I know you agree with me on this.

To date we’ve never heard any controversial stories about any of the group members and I hope we never do because most of us will be shattered since we have so much hope on these talented stars. The way I see it, this group will be around for a really long time.

Watch Ochunglo Family’s latest jam dubbed Kaa Na Mama Yako below.

Ochunglo Family’s new jam ‘Kaa Na Mama Yako’ is a massive hit (Video)

Ochunglo Family, the super-talented group that is made up of Nelly The Goon, Benzema and Dmore is back with another jam and it slaps really hard, it really does.

Dubbed Kaa Na Mama Yako, the song was inspired by a viral speech by West Pokot Governor Prof. John Lonyangapuo in which he says if you have nothing better to do, stay at your mum’s (This was the simplest way of putting it).

I was really impressed by the delivery of all the group members in this jam. While some claim that Nelly The Goon carried the day, I’m with Benzema on this one. I think he really aced it. Dmore also did a good job.

Ochunglo Family

My favourite line was, however, by Dmore, there is a part he says,”Nyonga nduru nduru, cheza chini ka Waiguru guru, wewe ni mtamu kama sukari nguru nguru, bakora kako ndani si turu turu.”

I have no idea why, I just loved that line. And no, it’s not what you think. Of course it is.

The beat, which was produced by Alvin Brown was also on point. Although the tempo is a bit slow, it’s still really good. This beat can bring life to a party and I’m not even exaggerating.

The video was directed by the one and only Ivan Odie and he also did a great job. I was particularly impressed by the drone shots of the vixens who were dancing on top of the vehicle. It was nothing short of spectacular!

Addi Chokoch, talented street kid who is way better than your favourite musician (Video)

There’s a street kid who is causing ripples in the local entertainment industry. His name is Addi Chokoch and I believe that it’s only a matter of time before he becomes a household name.

He caught the attention of music fans after a clip that showed him rapping for a matatu passenger, perhaps to get some coins in return, went viral on social media.


Our creator works in mysterious ways, as they say. Somehow, this clip was also seen by Dmore of Ochunglo Family and he decided to reach out to Addi Chokoch to see if they could work on a song together.

The two got into studio alongside Shagwah, Dark C and Bofa and came up with a banger titled Get A Tako which was released roughly three weeks ago.

The song was inspired by a game that I’m sure most of you played when you were in nursery or the lower primary classes.

Addi Chokoch with Dmore, Dark C and Bofa

It goes like, “One two make a circle, three four a big circle…” The corrupted version goes like “One two get a tako, three four a big tako…

You must be thinking, “This is just another vulgar song, why should I listen to it?” If you are keen enough, you’ll notice Addi Chokoch’s music prowess.

From his choice of words to his rhymes to his flow, everything is superb. You instantly feel like he has been doing this for a while which is not the case.


From the look of things, it’s only a matter of time before he edges out your favourite artist. I honestly can’t wait to see what he has in store for us.
