One third of the phenomenon that was the “Kama Kamaida” trio, Mayonde, released her new track ‘Nairobi‘ this afternoon. She features Stonee Jiwe on her new jam. Debuting the track on KTN’s Life & Style, she announced that the song will be uploaded to YouTube at midday much to the delight of the fans.
She pays tribute to the city of Nairobi, acknowledging the many sides of the savannah capital. Using her melodious harmonies to sing out the different hoods, this song is one for the ages, well done with that HipHop yet urban vibe.
The video is a looker, with different imagery acknowledging the sights and of course the streets of Nairobi. Shot, directed and edited by Joan Poggio, the video art embodies the Nairobi spirit and you can’t help but feel at home. The rap bit is well executed and hypes the song perfectly.
I love my city, Mayonde proclaims in the chorus
Here’s the video for your pleasure:
