The phenomenal woman Fena Gitu, who is without a slight doubt one of the illest rappers that we have in Kenya, has released a new track and it’s a big tune.

The song dubbed Karibia, which is a Swahili word that means ‘come closer’, has been ruling the airwaves since it was came out a few hours ago and to be honest, we are also feeling it.

I honestly do not know what to make of this track which is the 1oth single off Fena Gitu’s Unleashed album because it is different from her previous releases.

Part of me feels that it lacks the zeal that we have come to know the 29-year-old musician for while at the same time I feel it will grow in me with time.

You see, we are not used to Fena Gitu making such slow songs that seem like love ballads but I have to commend her for trying out a different sound.

That said the lyricism on this jam is on point. The other thing that I really love about Fena Gitu, other than her lovely voice of course, is how she expresses herself in her music.

The beat and instrumentation by Ilogos Music are so impeccable. Although I am not sure that this is the kind of jams that one can dance to, after listening to Karibia I know you’ll agree me that it’s catchy.

I absolutely love the video for this jam. It’s such a masterpiece if you ask me. Everything is on point, from the styling, the scene transitioning and general execution. Enos Olik outdid himself on this one.

Watch Karibia below and tell us what you think.
