Ochungulo Family have surprised a young girl from Meru who became a viral meme following her heavy accent.
The trio, which jumped on the ‘Mbingijii imekulwa na ndogi’ trend by releasing a song, have followed up on the young Meru girl behind the phrase and promised to pay her school fees.
Taking to social media, the group said that they were more than happy to meet the girl who goes by the name Happiness and will support her financially.
Wolaaaan!! We managed to get a hold of the little girl who’s voice eclipsed into the Mbinginji viral audio… She traveled all the way from Meru to meet @ochungulo_family .. it was a pleasure & her story is soo touching and guess what!!Her name is Happiness… Quite the talented young soul!! And you know you gotta appreciate people that have brought a smile or just made you happy in one way or another. Thus, We decided as @ochungulo_family to pay for her school fees for the next one year,and as the saying goes, educate a girl, and you impact an entire community& also support the family as much as we can.
I have always held the opinion that Benzema (Alejandro) is the best lyricist. However, most people don’t seem to agree with me.
In their opinion, Nelly The Goon is the illest songwriter in the group, in their opinion, Ochunglo Family would be nothing him – a notion that I don’t agree with.
Admittedly, all the group members, including Dmore, are talented. They have treated us since they thrust into the limelight with Krimino and we are grateful.
However, I’d like us to settle this once and for all. I would like to know who is the best best lyricist between Benzema (Alejandro) and Nelly The Goon.
There’s just something unique about how he sings, maybe it’s his tendency to kind of drag words. I think he totally killed it in Na Iwake (Remix).
Nelly The Goon
There’s no deny that he dope lyricist. If you check the comments section of their videos on YouTube, you’ll find many people showering him with praise. My favourite verse by him is from their latest release Kaa Na Mama Yako.
That said, who is the baddest lyricist in Ochunglo Family between Nelly The Goon and Benzema (Alejandro). Leave a comment below.
I’m a huge fan of Ochunglo Family. I not only like their music but also how they carry themselves. At this point, I can confidently say that they will last longer in this industry than all the other new-age groups or solo artists.
If you look at their music approach i.e. the songs that they have release and the collabos that they have done you’ll realise that Nelly The Goon, Benzema and Dmore are actually brilliant people and this reaffirms my line of thought.
If you remember well, we came to know about the group when Nelly teamed up with Dmore on Krimino. Incase you don’t know the background story, it was about an MCA who was complaining after being pepper sprayed in the Nairobi County Speaker’s office.
My point is they turned an funny clip that we’d ordinarily share on WhatsApp and forget about into a song and we all loved it, at least most of us did. The song blew up in a few days and before we knew it, they were on everyone’s lips simply because of their ingenuity.
The same case applies to their latest jam dubbed Kaa Na Mama Yako which was as a result of something West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo mentioned during a rally while warning certain people to stay away from his functions.
What Ochunglo Family does is to turn ordinary clips that we’ve all seen into songs and we consume their music because we can relate to it because let’s be honest I’m pretty sure you all watch the Lonyangapuo and krimino video before they infused them in their songs.
Every so often they release songs that have nothing to do with viral clips because they don’t want to be monotonous. They want to show us that they are actually talented. In my opinion, this is actually commendable or else we would have a song from Ochunglo Family about every viral clip.
If you also look at the collabos that they have done to date, you’ll realise that they are not random. In one way or the other, the songs played a big part in growing their fanbase and made up them who they are today.
Apart from being geniuses, I also realised that the three members of the group are actually mature. This is not just about age. If you’ve watched their interviews and seen how they carry themselves, I know you agree with me on this.
To date we’ve never heard any controversial stories about any of the group members and I hope we never do because most of us will be shattered since we have so much hope on these talented stars. The way I see it, this group will be around for a really long time.
Watch Ochunglo Family’s latest jam dubbed Kaa Na Mama Yako below.
Ochunglo Family, the super-talented group that is made up of Nelly The Goon, Benzema and Dmore is back with another jam and it slaps really hard, it really does.
Dubbed Kaa Na Mama Yako, the song was inspired by a viral speech by West Pokot Governor Prof. John Lonyangapuo in which he says if you have nothing better to do, stay at your mum’s (This was the simplest way of putting it).
I was really impressed by the delivery of all the group members in this jam. While some claim that Nelly The Goon carried the day, I’m with Benzema on this one. I think he really aced it. Dmore also did a good job.
My favourite line was, however, by Dmore, there is a part he says,”Nyonga nduru nduru, cheza chini ka Waiguru guru, wewe ni mtamu kama sukari nguru nguru, bakora kako ndani si turu turu.”
I have no idea why, I just loved that line. And no, it’s not what you think. Of course it is.
The beat, which was produced by Alvin Brown was also on point. Although the tempo is a bit slow, it’s still really good. This beat can bring life to a party and I’m not even exaggerating.
The video was directed by the one and only Ivan Odie and he also did a great job. I was particularly impressed by the drone shots of the vixens who were dancing on top of the vehicle. It was nothing short of spectacular!
Watch Kaa Na Mama Yako below and tell us what you think.
