Musicians in Kenya lack originality

Being original is something that has failed most musicians in Kenya. What do I mean? Simply this group of people have nothing that comes from their own mind. More so this goes to the new age artists. Not one time have we seen lift words from others to make a song. Some even go to an extent of copying even the voice.

Originality is something that shows one is creative and serious on what they are doing. It is not a new thing to hear someone has lifted a whole line from someone else. I do not understand how comedy becomes a song.

Why do I say they lack originality?

To start with some of this words lifted have a very different meaning. Come on like the word Pekejeng. The guy who came up with the words was talking about a dog. I think out of excitement the young kids who call themselves sailors did not even dig deep. This makes me laugh because when you get to know the meaning you will never say the word Pekejeng.

Below is a video on what Pekejeng means.

Whoever writes this songs need to be smart. At least stop recycling garbage to make a song. Look at the famous words from Governor Lonyangapuo, Kama hakuna kaa na mama yako. Come to think of the context this words were used. Honestly they do not even relate with where they are used in the song. It is not rocket science to understand what one meant when uttering such utterances.

When will this generation be proud of their own composition? For now we can only say that they are selling someones words. Also this is what scholars refer to as plagiarism.

Musicians in Kenya lack originality

Also, this is the only country where musicians copy accents and styles of singing from other nationals. Not at any one time have I heard or seen anyone from Tanzania or Uganda copy what is done here. Why can’t these people be original. We need something that we can call Kenyan made. Not by comedians but musicians coming up with their own words.

Originality is what will sell this musicians.

Miracle Baby of Sailors gang is the miracle of the group

By now am sure most Kenyans are aware  of the Wamlambez regime. This was after the new age music groups cropped and took over the Kenyan music scene.

It all started with the  Wamlambezz song, with an easy to note voice of one of the singers from Sailors gang. Miracle baby was kuspin na mayengs.

Miracle Baby

This guy stands out with the husky voice he posses and the syke he puts in during the music recordings.

From the look of things this is the guy that sells the group. Here is why.

His voice just excites the demons that lie within. Funny enough, am sure you feel it too.

Further with time they brought us Pekejenng I mean look at how the songs bridge is done and we’ll the voice in it is nobody else but Miracle Baby.

At the same time he starts that song and the instances where he starts shouting out of no where but it blends in the song.

Sometimes I just end up laughing instead. These boys are more of the stress killers aside from just being entertainers.

His passion and drive in the music is quite interesting because even when interviewed on TV and radio shows  trust miracle baby to be the one to chime in.

Bottom line is that this guy is the selling factor of this group and If not careful his mates might run away from the group because from social media checks he gets more appraisal.

Further in their latest jam Queen B machine they did Just what their fans were expecting shouts……uuuuuhhh Queen B machine…

In my opinion this trend of music is what Kenyans need. Only problem is that Fans take it too far.

I mean just saw a video on social media that a family in Busia played WAmlambezz and danced around their kin’s grave as symbol of celebration of life. I mean HOW??
