Ukweli & Sichangi -10,000 Hours ft Blinky Bill & Kerby

Absolutely in love with the East African Wave and the magic they keep spinning out.  The Kenyan based collective is a favorite on Soundcloud having produced some cool songs and with weekly mixes, ‘Wave Tape’ every Wednesday nothing like that mid-week music pump up and push through to keep you going.

This collaboration with Blinky Bill & Kerby is a partnership made in musical heaven, take a listen to ‘10,000 Hours’. Blinky’s effortless bars and Kerby’s flow has this song on constant repeat….none stop.


VIDEO: Ayrosh – ‘Shuga Mami’

Nothing beats a track that truly represents a person and roots with so much ease, rare to find that when we do her at Maarifa we hold em high above the rest. Kenyan artist Ayrosh released a track ‘Shuga Mami’ and it has all the ingredients that we long for soul, R’n’B and a dose of Kikuyu (language from the Gikuyu people of Kenya). The production comes from the talented Mugo of Waithaika Ent the first of more set to come from the pair, we can only hope.

The song has a dope hook to start with and Ayrosh slides between Gikuyu and English with such ease and class. He sings about a love so pure and the visuals just bring it to life with him and his leading lady working out and enjoying each others company. So sit back relax and check out the visuals below.
