Titled Genye Genye the track serves as the official comeback of Ally B after being away from the game for more than for more than two years and it will definitely make you wish that he never took a break.

Genye Genye is a love ballad. In the jam, the musicians profess their love for a certain lass and list all the things they love about her in an attempt to explain why she is giving them sleepless nights.

Ally B

There are two main reasons why I love this jam. Firstly, is because it sounds so pleasant to the ears, it is those kind of songs that will get you dancing at any given time, even when you are seated.

Secondly, if you grew up listening to Ally B, like yours truly, then you know how much we have all missed him. Genye Genye evokes feelings of nostalgia and takes you back to the good old days.

This jam is a beautiful composition. The lyrics by both Masauti and Ally B are sick and easy to master. To add to that, it is also well arranged.


The beat and instrumentation on Genye Genye is on point. This is one of those jams that will definitely cheer you up if you are in a bad mood. I’m not kidding. Of course, I also can’t wait to see the dance challenges.

The video for this jam is sick. I honestly love everything about it, from the aerial shots, the choreography, the styling, the scene transitioning. Put simply, it’s a masterpiece. Kudos to Totti.

Masauti gives fans special treat with infectious jam ‘Mahabuba’ (Video)

Mombasa-bred singer Mohammed Ali Said, better known as Masauti or Kenyan Boy, has released a new single and it is getting a lot of love from his fans. Well, to be honest this jam is not so new because it was first released in 2015.

Anyway, the song titled Mahabuha, which means my lover, is proof that Masauti has always been a good singer, even when most people had no idea that he existed. It also epitomizes his growth over the years.

This jam is infectious and on top of that it also has a soothing effect. It is the kind of songs that you hear on the radio and suddenly, you are in a good mood.


The rhythm on Mahabuba is something else. The first time I listened to this track was 3 years ago and when I heard it recently, it sounded different yet it’s exactly the same and that’s how you know a song is a big tune.

I know you will agree with me that Masauti’s on this song are dope and so is his lyricism. If you needed a reason why you should be proud to be Kenyan then he is certainly one.

One of the things that struck me about Mahabuba, other than the catchy hook of course, is the instrumentation. It is so dope so much so that you would think it’s a live performance.

Tedd Josiah did a good job, especially on the guitar. It sounds pleasant to the ears and makes you wish that the song was a bit longer.

Masauti pours his heart out in new single ‘Niwe Nawe’ (Video)

Talented Kenyan singer Mohammed Ali Said, better known as Masauti, is back with a new track and it is getting a lot of love from his fans.

The song dubbed Niwe Nawe, which is a Swahili word that means ‘be with you’, has been ruling the airwaves since it was released a few days ago and to be honest, we are also feeling it or else we wouldn’t be reviewing it, would we?


Basically, jam is about a beautiful lass who is driving the musician crazy and he is ready to go to any length to get her and keep her. Sounds cliche? If I was you, I would not jump to a conclusion just yet.

Niwe Nawe is a beautiful composition. Apart from the fact that it is well-arranged – which is evidenced by its smooth flow – I know you’ll agree with me that Masauti has a Melodious voice.

The Nurulain hitmaker has the kind of voice that will get you thinking of your special person or that ex that you have never really gotten over.

To add to that, there’s a lot of sincerity in Masauti’s voice so much so that you’d assume that this was a dedication to a specific person.


The beat, which was produced Robert Kamanzi, alias R Kay, is also very different from the kind of beats that Masauti normally uses.

Actually, the first time I listened to this song I thought the beat and instrumentation were ‘too gospel’ but with time I came to love it and this proves that Masauti can pull through any sound or beat.

Masauti is living proof that patience pays

Many people are just coming to know of Kenyan singer Mohammed Ali Said, alias Masauti, but the truth is that he has been around for sometime now.

The Mombasa born and bred singer has been making music for the since 2014 or thereabout. Put simply, it took him 5 years (or more) before he became a household name.


Despite being a super-talented singer, Masauti, who’s also known as Kenyan Boy, really struggled before Kenyans finally recognized him.

When he made his official debut in the local entertainment industry he referred to himself as Mswazzi Masauti and was singed to SwaRnB Records which is owned by legendary producer Tedd Josiah.

His first song under the stable dubbed Mahabuba didn’t do well. Very few people know it. Actually, I first heard it today as I was writing this article.

Listening to the song, anyone can tell why it didn’t do well. Although, it’s a very beautiful composition, it lacks the ‘party vibe’ that most Kenyans are used to. This song can make you sleep in a club!

It seems Masauti discovered this as he quickly re-invented himself (of course with the help of others). If you compare the Mahabuba with his latest single dubbed Ipepete, you’ll notice the sharp contrast.

Not only did he change his music approach, he also worked on his image. He moved from being a singer with a hideous hairstyle to a semi-tough musician. For the umpteenth time, image is everything!

He also met comedian Jalang’o who has really pushed his music career and introduced him to industry big wigs such as Khaligraph Jones who featured on the remix of his single dubbed Kiboko.

Today, Masauti is one of the most-sought after musicians in Kenya but the truth is that it did not come easy. It took him a whole 5 years and a lot of metamorphosis. He is living proof that patience pays!
