Nadia Mukami has set the pace for other Kenyan female artists

When it comes to Kenyan music, I think Nadia Mukami is possibly one of the finest artists that we’ve ever seen, she is exceptional in every sense and I’m not exaggerating.

Although she is barely even 5 years old in the industry, she has gotten to great heights and I would even dare say that she is the biggest female artist at the moment. Isn’t that a fact though?

Nadia Mukami

She is a great vocalist. For a long time I used to think Sanaipei Tande had a beautiful voice but then I came to know about Nadia Mukami and I changed my mind. She sounds so heavenly. I actually listen to her songs on repeat.

I also think that this lady is so hardworking. Actually she is. She keeps pushing herself and one day she might just be one of the finest African acts.

If I was her part management I would advice her not to slow down because there is no better recipe to being a great African act than constantly pushing yourself, something we’ve learnt from Diamond Platnumz.

Nadia Mukami

What people don’t know is that Nadia Mukami has the potential of becoming as great as Angelique Kidjo who might be a big comparison but I’m sure that she will get there.

Apart from the fact that she is really talented, one of the things that I love bout her is that she has managed to avoid scandals and this means that she can attract brands to work with her and whatnot.

If at all there’s a Kenyan female artist who has a high chance of bagging a Grammy, I believe it’s Nadia Mukami. I’m sure naysayers don’t believe it’s possible and I can’t wait to to tell them, “I told you so.”

Watch her latest jam with Marioo dubbed Jipe below and tell us what you think.

In the song titled Corona, the musicians asks people to be careful so that they do not contract the deadly virus which kills within a few days, especially when one’s immunity is low.

Maua Sama

The musicians urge people to take the disease seriously and adhere to the rules and regulations that have been put in place by the government to protect them.

They include; thoroughly washing your hands using clean water and sanitizing, avoiding large crowds and travelling  from one place to the other, educating others about the virus and seeking help when you have symptoms.

They say that the only way we can stop Coronavirus from spreading is by protecting one another and being cautious when we are in public.

Other than the powerful message that it carries, I’m sure after listening to Corona, you’ll agree with me that it’s such a beautiful composition.

If you are a fan of both Marioo and Maua Sama, like I am, then you know that they have an amazing voices and they put it into good use in this track to highlight the seriousness of the disease.

As you listen to them, you can tell that they are pained by what is going on around the world and you get to connect with him on a personal level. The instrumentation of this track is dope because it allows the message to sink in.

The song dubbed Unanikosha has been ruling the airwaves since it came out a few hours ago and to be honest, we’re also feeling it.

From my understanding, Unanikosha is a love ballad. In the track, Marioo gives several reasons why a certain lady is the best partner for him and why he does not want anyone else.

In as much as I’m not the biggest proponent of Bongo music, I must say that I really love this song. I have listened to it a couple of times since it came out and every time it’s like I am hearing it for the very first time.

Unanikosha is such a beautiful composition. To add to that, Marioo has an amazing voice and the way he sings you’d think there is more to it, like he might really be in love with this lady. Who knows?

Marioo

I don’t know about you but as I was listening to this jam, I sort of felt like it was a live concert and I was the only one in the audience.

I totally love the beat and instrumentation on this track. Other than the fact that they make it so catchy, I’m sure you will agree with me that they also blend well with Marioo’s style, vibe and tempo.

The video for this jam is really dope and I’m not kidding. Other than its crisp quality, the other things that impressed me were the styling, the sexy vixen, the sets and the flawless scene transitioning. Kudos to the director.

Nadia Mukami has potential to make it big outside Kenya

In most countries, the male artists dominate over their female counterparts. Even in Kenya the discussion is always about Khaligraph, King Kaka, Sauti Sol, Willy Paul, Bahati or the Gengetone artists – who are mostly male.

But somehow, there’s a female artist who has managed to break that ‘curse’ and that’s none other than the gorgeous Nadia Mukami – the lass who is behind hits such as; Si Rahisi, Yule Yule, Radio Love, Jipe, just to name a few.

In three years or so, she has gone from an upcoming artist to one of the most of the sought-after artists in the region and if you ask me, that is a commendable feat because it takes most artists a long time to get their names out there.

The truth is that Nadia Mukami is a hard worker and this is evidenced by the number of tracks that she has released since most of us came to know her.

To add to that, I think she has a good team behind her, they are always doing their best to ensure that she’s not only the best artist in Kenya but in the continent like Angelique Kidjo, Lira or Yemi Alade.

Nadia Mukami

Also there is the fact that she is beautiful, has a bubbly personality and her angelic voice makes you want to listen to her songs over and over. She sounds very pleasant to the ears.

Although it’s tough being a female artist, bearing in mind all the challenges that come with it, I think Nadia Mukami has the potential. I she continues at the same pace, then maybe, just maybe, she might bag a Grammy someday.

The jam dubbed Jipe, which is off Nadia Mukami’s forthcoming Extended Play (EP) titled African Popstar, has been ruling the airwaves since it came out a few hours ago and to be honest, we are also feeling it.

Jipe is a love ballad. From my understanding, it’s about two lovers who can’t get enough of each other. Interestingly, no one is against their union and there’s no drama, it’s the perfect kind of love.

This jam is so infectious. I’ve listened to it 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.

If you have been  fan of Nadia Mukami as long as I have then I’m sure you know that she can really sing. God blessed her with an amazing voice and she knows how to put it into good use.

I don’t know about you but as I was listening to Jipe, I kind of felt like I was watching her live on stage performing it and in my opinion that is because the song is lively and energetic.

Marioo did not disappoint either. He spiced up the song by introducing the Bongo vibe in it. To add to that, he has an amazing voice that really blends well with that of Nadia Mukami.

The beat and instrumentation on Jipe are impeccable. They get you hooked from the moment you hit the play button and we have the one and only Alexis On The Beat to thank for that.

I absolutely love the video for this jam. Everything is on point, from the concept and execution, the locations, styling, props, lighting, scene transitioning, you name it.

Marioo gets emotional in latest single ‘Aya’ (Video)

Talented Tanzanian singer and songwriter Omary Mwanga, better known as Marioo, has released a new jam and it’s totally worth your time.

Also read: Kenyan musicians have so much to learn from their Tanzanian counterparts

The track dubbed Aya, which is a Swahili word that means okay, has been ruling the airwaves since it was released a few days ago and to be honest, we are also feeling it.

Basically, this joint is about a guy who has his eyes set on a beautiful lady but she is not just impressed with him and that leaves him wondering what about him the lady doesn’t like.

To force him to stop pursuing her, the lady tells him that his star has dimmed and he’s not good looking. What she is not aware of is the fact that her sentiments are causing him even more pain.

In as much as I’m not the biggest proponent of Bongo music, I must say that I really love this song. I have listened to it a couple of time since it came out and every time it’s like I am hearing it for the very first time.

Aya is such a beautiful composition. To add to that, Marioo has a melodious voice – the way he sings you’d think he’s narrating something that really happened to him. Who knows, maybe he is.

Marioo

Notably, the instrumentation and beat on this jam are also impeccable, especially the former. If you are a fan of live bands I’m sure you’ll love this jam because the guitar and violins sounds in it seem like a live performance.

The video concept is on point since it aligns with the themes of the song which are love, rejection and pain. To add to that, I must also say that I loved its simplicity.

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

Country Boy links up with Marioo on ‘Leo’ and we love it (Video)

Fast-rising Tanzanian singer Country Boy has released a new song with his country mate Marioo and it’s getting a lot of love from their fans.

The song titled Leo, which is a Swahili word that means today, proves that the two youngsters will soon give the likes of Diamond Platnumz, Ali Kiba and Ommy Dimpoz a run for their money.

To be honest, I fell in love with this song the very first time. I don’t really know why perhaps I just loved the fact that it was by Tanzanian artists who were not trying too hard to sound like Diamond Platnumz.

I can’t really say much about the lyricism. All I can say is that Country Boy has some dope vocals. He has this hoarse that you just want to keep listening to, gender notwithstanding.

Marioo

Marioo can also really sing. He also has a great voice that I am sure many ladies would fall in love with the moment they listen to him.

If we are being honest, I felt like this song had a weak hook or what other people call chorus. When they start saying ‘Leo nakubandika bandua’ it’s like they don’t plan to stop.

That said, I think this jam also has a great beat. It’s not too loud or quiet. I just love it the way it is and with time you just can’t resist it.
