Kenyan Artistes

Ogopa Boys and girls-criticized for the kapuka beat, the Ogopa crew have managed to keep their presence in the Kenyan music market. E-sir was the greatest musician that came out of that stable. Their future is not very stable in the Kenyan market as evidenced by the CHAT awards held sometimes back. Of course if they can get more talent like Jerry Jo they much just go somewhere, who says kapuka won't sell

Calif Stable - I recognize their ability to churn lewd lyrics, Nonini , Jua Kali Rat a Rat, Pilipili, Flexx. If you like being naughty their lyrics are very theatrical. How do you explain
“Nashindwa nizame wapi , nyundo yangu sasa itauma wapi, sijui niachilie cheza nalo mpaka aseme jina zote ninalo— sijui niseme sijui niseme not sure if those are correct lyrics about it goes something like that.

Though they are not party songs unlike kapuka you cannot ignore their presence in the market, actually I can say I appreciate the Calif beat than the so obvious Kapuka beat.

Underground Artistes
What comes out of these artistes? No idea.


  1. i've said it before and say it again kenyan music is wanting

    i'll grant them that in terms of beats they win hands down..but when u break down to the lyrics...talent is lacking.
    why people think that they can write and produce and sing...still amazes me.people should identify their talents or lack of and start from there

  2. @Nick Kenyan Music is a bit pathetic but i'm trying to appreciate. but i think Klepto are coming on well.

  3. i really really wish we'd not copy hip-hop as much as we do!! woi, someone send me some new music.. it's been two years almost since i heard some kenyan music!!
