Veteran Kenyan artist Colonel Mustapha has hoped back into the musical bandwagon and fans are loving it.
Mustapha is making waves once again with his newest track, 'Umenikumbuka,'
The catchy new release is a thanksgiving song that not only marks his triumphant comeback but also serves as a heartfelt ode to the fans who stood by him during his lowest moments and mostly God for coming through for him and helping restore his mother's health.
With a catchy beat and Mustapha's signature vocals, "Umenikumbuka Y(ou Have Remembered Me)" is a song of celebration, gratitude and resilience dedicated to God (and his fans) for holding his hand and coming through for him.
The lyrics take us on a journey through Mustapha's struggles, touching on a time when he faced the dual challenge of supporting his mother through cancer treatment while dealing with personal hardships and financial strains.
In one poignant verse, Mustapha opens up, singing, "My mother was sick, and I spent most of the time crying. I could not sleep; depression took away my happiness.
I did not know I would be up again, but my fans came through for me. I am a legend without money, but thank you, my fans. God saved me and remembered me at that low moment." (Note Mustapha sings in Swahili, the verse has been translated for your ease)
The transparency in his lyrics is both refreshing and moving, as Mustapha lays bare the challenges he faced during a period when life hit a discordant note.
As the title suggests, "Umenikumbuka" (You Have Remembered Me), is also a joyous acknowledgment of the love that God has shown him through all his trying times.
Mustapha's return to the music scene is not just a personal triumph; it's a testament to the power of music to heal and unite. The infectious rhythm of "Umenikumbuka" is bound to have fans singing along, giving their own testaments.
As the song climbs the charts, it's clear that Mustapha's music is not only timeless but also resonates with a depth that goes beyond the melodies.
The video since its release 11 days has amassed over 61k views, 6.3k likes and close to 700 comments. Welcome back, Mustapha – the music world missed your tune!
