diamond platinumz aging father urges son to hastily hold peace talks before his death - Diamond Platinumz´ aging father urges son to hastily hold peace talks before his death

Bongo star, Diamond Platinumz´father, Mzee Abdhul reveals that he is now selling second-hand shoes, and pleads with the son to arrange for peace talks before his death. Speaking up and close with Wasafi TV, the ailing aging man states that he does not feel happy with the kind of relationship between him and his son, having last spoken in 2 decades. Diamond´s dad believes the two need to iron out their differences by holding peace talks so that they become the family they once were, years ago. Mzee Abdhul cites he might have wronged the Wasafi King before, but sincerely seeks his pardon, as his father. I may have wronged but all I want is for him to take me as his father. In fact, am giving out a note to this presenter I want him to read it and then get back to me. I don´t want him to wait until I am in the grave to look for peace. The artist´s dad also urges his son to make hay while the sun shines, and have a chat with him, before his days on earth lapse, leaving behind curses. Nafua, navitembeza viatu Angenipa support, hii kazi singeifanya, ni hela tu nahitaji. However, the aging man reveals he is currently hawking second-hand shoes to feed himself but still seeks his son´s financial aid. He recently featured on the music arena, but did not seem to last as long claiming he was there just to fulfill his promise to the artists. Feedback Unfortunately, the old man´s sentiments are not well received by the audience, claiming he is merely spreading lies about the son, and occasionally contradicts himself in interviews: 😢😢dah baba anamuomba mtoto samahani nimeumia   amani siwanasema wanwasilianaga nae nakumuhudumia wamsamehe bwana   Mimi hua siamini kabisa kama kweli diamond…

kenyan musicians whove been struggling to make a comeback and what they need to do - Kenyan musicians who’ve been struggling to make a comeback and what they need to do

Kenyan musicians who were household names 10 years (or so) ago have been struggling to make a comeback in the last few years. However, their efforts are neither here nor there. It’s almost as if they are wasting their time. Truth is, time flies. Maybe you treated Kenyans to a big hit in your heydays. For one reason or the other, you decided to slow down or take a break as you bask in your success. Maybe you just got lazy, who knows? Somewhere along the way, perhaps after 5 (or so) years, the musician decides to go back to studio to record songs. More often than not, what motivates them is the fact that their bank account are not as fat as they used to be. They hurry to release the songs. However, the songs don’t do well. They can’t even get 10,000 views on YouTube. This comes as a shock to many artists who were big back in the day. They find it hard to believe that their fans have moved on. You see, 5 years is such a long time. Hundreds, maybe thousands of new musicians have cropped up since the old guns took a break. Naturally, some of them won the hearts of music fans. As such, when the old guns make a comeback after so many years, they find it hard to penetrate the industry. Perhaps they sound the same way and this makes it even harder. Instead of releasing many songs that no one bothers to listen to, these old guns should come face-to-face with the fact that they are no longer the household acts that they were a decade ago. In so doing, they will come to the realization that they need to work with new-age musicians to regain relevance and break through…

alvindo has released the video for taka taka and its way better than expected - Alvindo has released the video for ‘Taka Taka’ and it’s way better than expected

Alvindo with KRG The Don

Singer Alvindo, has released the video for his first single dubbed Taka Taka. Interestingly, the video debuted a few days after Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua banned the song. In a statement, Mutua explained that the song had been restricted due to “its obscene and degrading lyrics that advocate for violence against women by equating them to trash.” To some extent, I seem to agree with Mutua. However, I don’t think it really necessitated a ban because doing so only makes it popular. It doesn’t serve the purpose at all. Alvindo and his manager KRG The Don knew this too well. As such, it does not come as a surprise that they hurried to release the video even after the song had been banned. The video, which was directed by Deska Torres, has already clocked 72,000 views on YouTube two days after it was released. From the look of things, it will hit a million views in four weeks or so. In as much as I don’t think the song is worth writing about, I really loved how the video brought the song to life with various scenes depicting what Alvindo went through in the hands of his ex. If you don’t know, the song is all about Alvindo’s ex girlfriend and how she put him through a lot and eventually dumped him. It is a diss track to his ex. The video helps paint a good picture in people’s minds. As it begins, there a scene where Alvindo is visiting a witchdoctor to cast a spell on his ex girlfriend. Also read: Alvindo’s ‘Taka Taka’ is almost hitting a million views but it’s still terrible There’s also a scene that shows him working as a vendor at Burma Maket. As he leaves work, his girlfriend ambushes him…

Kambua is back with a new song titled Njoo. Njoo means come. The Queen of gospel music is calling us back to God. It is a good thing that the gospel industry is being revived. Njoo is a song that calls every believer to get back to their 1st love- the love of Christ. There’s grace for, and in every situation.  The audio was done by Teddy B. Kambua insists that the preaching will go on in buses, on social media accounts and through songs. She has released the song after she got a new role at Royal media services. She will be hosting Rauka Sunday morning show after former host Enid Moraa made a quit. Kambua has proved that she is still in the industry even with the controversies about her. The audio is so clear and well thought of. The choice of words are so encouraging and this is not just singing but the emotions bring the mood of the song Njoo. The quality of the video is also good and attractive. This is a great talent here. Also the church background in the video brings out the  theme of the song. Kenyan production is really improving and this song just affirms to that. This song shows a resilient Kambua who is not going to give up on the gospel. In the first verse; “Nyimbo nyingi nimeimba lakini hamkuskia, nitaziimba tena. Kwa mtandao nimeandika lakini hamkusoma, nitaandika tena. Kwa basi mmehubiriwa, kwa soko mmehubiriwa, mtatuona tena. Tuliambiwa ni kelele. Tunakatiza sherehe, mtatatuona tena aah.”  Isn’t this what we do? This verse simply talks of the rejection faced by those preaching the word of God. “Njoo oh ooh anakuita tena tena. Njoo ooh ooh ooh anakuita tena tena tena. Tena tena, tena.” There repetition in the chorus which emphasizes on…
