The Underrated Kenya Chart is a bi-weekly column featured each Monday, underscoring an amazing selection of new Kenyan music that we’ve discovered, which isn’t receiving as much airplay, or attention, as it should.
You can now send in your votes for the artists that you think deserve the top spot on our Underrated Chart, and we’ll follow that up with either an elongated or video interview of the Artist, and a week-long feature on our sidebar.
Remember, to qualify to be featured on this Chart, the music has to be less than 6 months old from the date of release, be of good listening and/or visual quality and be written, composed, performed or produced by a Kenyan artiste.
