Since I started listening to music as a young Kenyan lad, I remember my mum had a couple of Munish tapes in her collections. Honestly if you didn’t grow up listening to such your household was never lit on Sundays.
Comparing Kenyan music back in those days to now, you can easily tell that the number of songs has more than tripled and the quality of the music videos improved tremendously.
From being a country that never had such a huge voice outside our borders, we have since competed and triumphed against talented international acts.
Growing up, among others, Kenya was known for it’s genge and Kapuka sounds but we are now in the era of Gengetone and Shrap sounds taking the scene by a storm.
So today I decided why not take you back in time to when we used to jam to the songs that are forever etched in our musical memories.
In fact after Mejja and Femi one gave us ‘Utawezana’ I decided to take a look at, at least 21 greatest music collaborations of my time.
