Nixon Wesonga, popularly known as Visita is a Kenyan musician, rapper and producer who just dropped his latest track ‘Onyo’
He says that his name Visita comes from the number 6, which he claims is his lucky number as he was born in June and won an award in 2006.
Before leaving grandpa records some time back in 2016, Visita was the label’s ‘second in command’ after CEO and founder Yusuf Noah aka Refigah.
He has worked with a couple of great Kenyan artistes including Kenrazy and Sosuun, who he worked with in the collabo dubbed ‘Amani’. Composed beats for Kamua Leo, Chapa (Fimbo ya Pili), Dumbala remix, Vile Kunaendaga, Chali Stingy… the list is endless.
Other songs he has done include Elewa Lewa, Mapepo, Asubuhi, Hivo Ndio Kunaendanga, Chali Stinji and many more
His latest track is a well-crafted song with his usual bouncy beats with playful and witty rhymes, and it is one amazing song. Let’s just say that like most Visita’s previous tracks, it is one club banger.
The new song Onyo was written by Visita himself.
Versatile Zambian rapper – Ghavi hopped on the surprise-release train early Friday morning (March 29) when he announced plans for his Out Set EP just hours before the project arrived on streaming services including ZambianMusic.net.
Ghavi’s EP effort is peppered with an impressive guest list, with contributions from some of Zambia’s talented musician,
“Out Set is very special to me because I was able to truly express every part of my artistry and personality. This body of work is for my fans,” Ghavi explains
Kenyan Hip-hop master Jemedari is out with new ‘Row Your Boat.’ Recognized in the industry as one of the most versatile creatives in the music scene. He has since his veteran days managed to maintain the original Hip-Hop style that we now know has taken many different sounds.
Jemedari has had major releases such as ‘Mitaani’, ‘Letter To The President’ and many more. It might ring a loud bell if you particularly liked ‘Zaidi Ya Wote’ which he got together with talented Dan Aceda to create.
It has been a minute though, since we heard from skilled artists such as Jemedari and he has made such a terrific come back. He chooses to pick a phrase so familiar it’s sure to stick; because none of us forgets nursery school rhymes. This also transcends lyrical prowess to completely relate perfectly to the message on his come-back tune.
We don’t know who needs to hear this but you need to keep rowing through the sea of life even through the struggles and huddles. It is also completely attractive how he stepped out of his hard core hip-hop signature to present a laid back more melodious sound that’s simply irresistible.
What a way to step back in the scene, simply genius.
Ghanaian rapper and Black Avenue Muzik boss D-Black presents a brand new single. This one is titled “Obi Ba”, and it features Lynx Entertainment star singer KiDi.
This one is the follow up to his last release, the video for his late 2018 single “Dat Ting (Toto)”, featuring Joey B. The song was produced by MOGBeatz.
Just like the Wu Tang classic, Golden Black’s “Cream” loops the first four seconds of “As Long As I’ve Got You,” the piano loop that defines “C.R.E.A.M.” The difference is, instead of the boom bap drum pattern on the Wu Tang classic, “Cream” sits over 808s and an excessive bassline, as is usually the case on trap songs.
The subject on matter on “Cream” is money, as expected, with fellow Durbanite Zakwe rapping, “I’m a herbivore with animals right beside me/ Leopards, elephants, buffalos, rhinos and lions,” which is a reference to the animals that are on South African notes.
Golden Black member Slay raps, “Was a youngin’ when this shit just came out/ Catch you snitchin’, introduce you to my Glock.” He later makes reference to Eazy E and N.W.A., adding onto the nostalgia the song’s built on.
Hip-hop, which is 46 years old, is young compared to other genres, but has given its young artists enough classics to sample. The genre has come full circle as it was built on sampling disco and blues records.
In the recent past, we’ve seen hip-hop artists sampling classic hip-hop songs and updating them to suit the current era. Examples aren’t hard to come by—Meek Mill’s “What’s Free?” is an embellishment of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “What’s Beef?” and Rick Ross’ “Nobody” samples “You’re Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You)” also by Biggie. In South Africa, L-Tido turned the East Coast legend’s “10 Crack Commandments” into a guide for the dating and hook-up game on his latest single “10 Mac.”
“Cream” is taken from Golden Black’s latest project Bam, which is mostly trap, but pays homage to the culture of soul samples, on the songs “Cream” and “Purple Dreams.”
