Gwaash has teamed up with K4Kanali and Xtrim on ‘Meow’ and it’s a big tune (Audio)

Fat Boy Gwaash, also known as Mr. Sponyo, is back with a new joint alongside K4Kanali and Xtrim and we are really feeling it. Like, really!

The new song dubbed Meow – the sound that is produced by a cat – is about how guys pursue ladies with the objective of bedding then hence the meow sound, you get it? Sorry prudes, this is not for you.

Although I was really disappointed in the quality of the audio, I must admit that Gwaash, K4Kanali and Xtrim really had some tight verses in this jam.

To be more specific, I was really impressed by K4Kanali. You might remember him from the first verse in Katambe, “Danse danse na baby ukichoka wacha nikudare tukikata kaquarter sai tunasele…”


K4Kanali also killed it in this jam. His verse goes like, “Baby uko fiti umeshikana kama simiti, mwili ni ya madhako na najua wewe huringi ana forehead proper matako matiti dreadi kama nichi na ni safi…”

Like I mentioned earlier, the only problem I have with this jam is the audio quality. It’s terrible, there is no other way to describe it. It just shows that the song was hurriedly done and released.

That notwithstanding, I really loved the beat. It’s the kind that will get you in a great mood from the time you hit the play button. Props to the producer.

Listen to Meow below and tell us what you think.

New-age musicians have killed Nigerian music and that’s a huge win

If you are keen, I’m sure you’ve noticed that Nigerian music is not as popular in Kenya as was the case a few years ago.

Gone are the days when local clubs, radio and TV stations would play one Nigerian song after the other and in my opinion that’s a huge win.

The focus has really shifted to local musicians, especially the new-age artist so much so that you could say that they helped in killing Nigerian music.

You see, the game really changed the day “Lamba Lolo” hitmakers Ethic appeared on the music scene more than one year ago.

In as much as the song was vulgar, many Kenyans couldn’t help but appreciate the fact that their style was different. It was out of the norm.

To add to that, it was very appealing and danceable (is this even a word?). Put simply, it was the kind of music that you could bump in the club.

Sooner or later, more individuals or groups  whose style was similar to Ethic emerged and before we knew it, most local clubs, radio and TV stations were playing their music back to back.

What I love most about the Kenyan music revolution is that the new-age artists are restless which means that unlike their predecessors, they are always in studio. As such, they are releasing hits back to back!

Kudos to Sailors Gang, Boondocks Gang, Ethic, Ochunglo Family, Rico Gang, Fat Boy Gwash, Zzero Sufuri etc.

I can only hope that one day we’ll get rid of Tanzanian music like we did with Nigerian music!
