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.
