OYGK Music Video Debut: Yemi Alade – Nakupenda (feat Nyashinski)

It’s the collaboration we’ve been waiting for all year, ever since we saw the undeniable chemistry: Yemi Alade has teamed up with the MTV EMA-nominated Nyashinski to bring the Swahili version of the already Swahili-titled ‘Nakupenda’.

Off Yemi’s colourful Mama Africa EP, ‘Nakupenda‘ was produced by Retimikeys, with this video directed by Ovie Etseyatse, having already been released in its original version, and in French as well. She truly is a multi-lingually talented artiste with a jaw dropping vocal range.

It’s mesmerizing to hear someone who is not a native Kiswahili speaker utter, much less sing, so effortlessly and with such conviction that you feel the emotion in her words. There’s an inflection of intrumentals, chimes and the harmonious intertwine of their voices that makes ‘Nakupenda’ a breezy tune.
