If you’ve been listening to urban Kenyan gospel since time immemorial, I’m sure you’ve heard tracks like; I Live For You, Mpenzi Wa Suprise, Rudi Nyumbani, Njoo – which were all sang by BMF.

After a long hiatus, the group which comprised of; Freddy, Sammy Dee, Harry Ash, Maich has made a comeback in the local music industry, only that the first two members have since ventured into other things.

Harry Ash and Maich have rediscovered their love for music and they have released a jam which has been ruling the airwaves since it was released about a week ago.

Dubbed Mungu Tu, the song talks about giving thanks to the Lord, even when you are going through a difficult time, because he has promised that he will always be on our side.

Other than the powerful message in this jam, the other reason why I have had it on replay is because it is a beautiful composition.

To add to that, both Harry Ash and Maich brought their A-games on Mungu Tu. Their vocals on are really on point and you just want to keep listening to the song.

The verses are also simple and if you are the kind of person who likes to master songs, you will learn the whole of it after listening to it just twice, or maybe thrice.

The beat and instrumentation are really on point and they also blend well with the tempo of the artists. Honestly, I think Saint P deserves a pat on the back for the good job.

The video for this Mungu Tu is also dope. Although the concept was quite simple, the execution was above par. From the flawless scene transitioning, location, styling, dramatization, I just love everything about it.

Size 8’s latest release ‘Kujeni Twende’ is totally worth your time (Video)

Gospel songstress Linet Munyali, alias Size 8, is back with a new song and I’m are really feeling it. If you ask me, I’ll tell you that it’s totally worth your time.

She has featured upcoming gospel singer Alpha Mwana Mtule in the song dubbed Kujeni Twende which loosely translates to “come, let’s go.”

The song asks human beings to turn to Christ for it is in him that they will find happiness and comfort.

The song’s chorus is very simple and easy to remember. It goes like, “Kujeni twende Twende kwa Mola tukae naye Kujeni twende Twende kwa Mola tuseme naye.

Apart from the good lyrical flow, I was also impressed by the Lingala-infused beat. Chances are, you’ll stand up to dance while listening to this song.

The song was produced by Bern and directed by the super-talented Sammy Dee of True D. Put simply, the video is also impressive.

Size 8 has been doing exceptionally well since she got saved and crossed over to the gospel industry. Initially, most people thought it was a bluff but she has stood the test of time.

What I love most about her is her versatility.  She makes music that appeals to different audiences or generations. If you are keen you’ll notice how her songs are different.

Take for instance Tam Tam, which she did with Willy Paul, and Send Forth. The former leans on the the praise side while the latter is more of a worship song.

In the same way, her latest single dubbed Kujeni Twende is different. It’s a praise song with a fire Lingala beat.

Perhaps, she relevant to this very date because of her versatility.
