Partriotsim or revolution? Kenyan musicians taking over Kenya’s politics

For the longest time, Kenyan artists have been bashed for doing music content. All this in the name of entertainment. But another song poked us to the extent of questioning our loyalty.

Kenyan artists used music as an avenue to air out the political rot that is swallowing the economy by the day. For instance over, 18 years ago Eric Wainaina did a song dubbed Nchi ya Kitu Kidogo.

A song that rattled some politicians as Eric called out the corrupt officials and how bribes were crippling the country. Years later as not much has changed.


Before long  6 years back came Juliani who did a song dubbed “Utawala”. The lyrics of the song Utawala by Juliani featuring Wakenya hits the nail right on the head when it comes to the plight of Kenyans in the hands of politicians.


Utawala means to govern. Kenyans seem to be out of luck when it comes to good leaders. Sometimes one would think it is the leaders who pick themselves to get into office. Years down the story about corruption, high taxation among others has not changed a bit. Who do we blame?

Political Musicians

When you thought you had seen it all in the political arena, 2017 general election saw some musicians like Jaguar and journalists like Mohammed Ali of Jicho Pevu elected. With this many youths thought that these lads would be a voice for the Youth in Kenya. Sad enough it had to take artists like Sauti Sol and Nyashinski do another patriotic song as a reminder of the political rot in Kenya. Clearly Tujiangalie should have pricked our consciences in 2018 but no it did not work.

Remember in July 2019 Susumila also hit us so hard on our laxity with the political instability.

Then late 2019 King Kaka had to use the literal aspect of Poetry and dropped “Wajinga Nyinyi”. A song that hit us so hard, we got talking about the same old issues. Remember all he said was what has been in the media all through the years. To the extent that some politicians felt targeted. I mean who is the fool here? And for how long should this go on? Is it a revolution or a call for patriotism?

Frasha has joined King Kaka in the battle of telling the truth in his new song Wajinga Sisi. This is in continuation of the Wajinga Nyinyi hit released by King Kaka.

Frasha has openly highlighted the difficult times that Kenyans are going through.  Revolution is inevitable this time around. Kenyans are at a time where nothing matters.

Wanjinga Sisi echoes the earlier words by King Kaka where he pointed out the gaps in the Kenyan government. In a country where corruption has become the order of the day, poetry seems to be talking.

Frasha calls on the corrupt judicial system

Into the Wajinga Sisi song, Fresha hits on some of the scandals that have drained the country and how they were forgotten.

“Hello King Kaka. Ni Frasha hapa. Maze hii fight alone huwezi toboa. So nimeamua ku stand na wewe. So kabla wani summon, wacha nitoe yangu sermon,” read the lyrics.

Frasha goes on to highlight some of the things that King Kaka failed to mention in his earlier piece of work. According to the Wajinga Sisi version, he calls on the judiciary who has on a couple of times failed Kenyans in the fight against corruption.

Frasha says that they have killed justice by releasing these corrupt politician on bond of Ksh 2 million whereas their case is worth more than Ksh 2 billion.

“Naskia Waiguru alikusue. Is this true? Funny vile judiciary imekuwa circus. Judge na politicians wakiwa main acts. Mshukiwa anaachiliwa kwa bondi ya Ksh 2 million na kesi yake ni ya Ksh 2 billion. Nani atatupigania? Hatujui maguru wa NYS na Ruto na makesi za mashamba . Scandals za mahindi na story ya Mumias na sukari,” added Frasha.

Frasha has also condemned pastors who have been lying to netizens but at the end of the day calls Kenyans fools. This is because they will still flock the same churches.

“Na hata kama wewe ni pastor unang’ang’ana. How can you have such a deceitful tongue? But Sunday bado sisis tutajazana. Wajinga Sisi,” he says.


In addition to the great piece of work, Frasha reminds us of the SGR saga where Kenya became a dumping for what China did not need. This came in the name of the failed Standard Gauge Railway line.

“Story ya SGR tuliwacha kuicompare na Ethopia na wale walikuwa wanapiga kelele walinyamazishwa pia,” added Frasha.

It is clear that from this Wajinga Sisi song Kenyans are tired and musicians have resulted to using artwork to fight for justice.

In conclusion, Frasha has done a good job and gets a rating of 8/10.
