Bobby Mapesa – BADO
Who else still thought Bobby Mapesa was kind of saved? Anyway we were wrong by most accounts and this song proves it. We cannot sufficiently describe the confusion that surrounds this song. It’s just so messy. The beat is actually very good but everything else is bottom tier. You can see that they were going for an old school vibe but it fell short of even that. If you can look past that then maybe ‘BADO’ is a diamond in the rough.
Mayonde ft Stonee Jiwe – Nairobi
When will Mayonde get her dues? The songstress puts out nothing but quality cuts but doesn’t seem to be as big as she should be. ‘Nairobi’ is a lot rougher around the edges than the music she usually produces but it’s still a great song. The visuals are also stunning and that is all Joan Poggio’s work–who shot and directed the video. Stonee Jiwe also happens to be another underrated artiste who deserves a moment in the spotlight.
Oksyde ft Khaligraph – Atiyo Matek
It’s about time we admitted that trap beats do not necessarily work with just everything. ‘Atiyo Matek’s’ beat might be interesting but it is doing too much and almost nothing for the artistry of the song. Khaligraph, not one to be outdone does carry the song and somehow makes it work despite the inconsistency of the entire track. This is also not Oksyde at 100, he could do better.
