Celebrated Kenyan singer Martin Wagura, better known as Fatboy Gwaash or Gwaash, has dropped a new track with K4Kanali, Iano Ranking and Kappy and it’s a big tune.

The jam titled Patia was inspired by a speeech made Raila Odinga where he was comparing Kamba women with who will give you ‘something’ once they assure you that they will. This song is definitely not for prudes.
I have listened to this song a couple of times since it came out and every time I listen to it, it’s like I am hearing it for the very first time. Yup, it’s that’s good.
One of the reasons why I love Gengetone and the artists behind it is because of their sheer creativity. These guys can come up with random rhymes and it’s just awesome to listen to them as they play around with words.
The first verse by Iano Ranking, who is one half of Wakali Wao is sick. He’s such a dope lyricist and to add to that, he some great punchlines.
Team Ganji’s Kappy also brought his A-game on Patia. I totally love his musical prowess. His flow is flawless and you just want to keep listening to him as he goes about his business.
If you ask me, I’ll tell you that K4Kanali had the best verse on this track. His lyrics are so dope so much so that it will make you wish he had been given a few more seconds. Wait, does it have everything to do with his unique voice?
As expected, Gwaash also aced it. He also has an impeccable flow though I must admit that sometimes I feel like he is talking through his verse rather than singing.
The beat is also on point. Other than the fact that it’s very catchy, which simply means that you might get up to dance as you listen to this song, I loved how it blends well with the voices and tempos of the artists.
About the video, I don’t really know. Not that I have any problem with it but I feel like the shaking of derrieres and low-quality visuals is becoming too cliche. Anyway, big up to Gwaash, Kappy, K4 Kanali and VDJ Jones.
Watch Patia below and tell us what you think.
