Fast-rising musician Alutondo drops sizzling jam dubbed ‘Atooti’ (Video)

There is a Kenyan artist who has done an Afrobeat rendition of Atoti, a hit from the early 2000s by Gidi Gidi and Maji Maji, and its too lit. I’m not exaggerating.

The musician goes by the name Leku Simon Eremugo, alias Alutondo and he is proving to be a force to be reckoned with on the local entertainment industry.


His version of the mega hit is titled Atooti and I’ve had it on repeat since I heard it first because it’s so infectious. It has a good vibe and I couldn’t resist the urge to hit the repeat button over and over.

Alutondo, who is famed for other jams like Sugarma, Dear Love, Nyanina, Wicked Luv, really came through on his latest project. It makes you feel like hitting the dancefloor.

Atooti is funky. The beat has some elements of dancehall and Afrobeat  and perhaps that is what makes it so catchy. For the lyrics, Alutondo fused his local dialect and English.


To be honest, if you are going to going to remix a classic it better be this good or you are wasting your time. Put simply, Alutondo did the original Atoti justice.

I absolutely love the video for this jam. The videographer really came through. Other than the fact that it’s crisp, the lighting, styling and scene transitioning were also on point.

Watch Atooti below and tell us what you think.
