Kenya seems to be making strides in building it’s Hip-Hop presence in Africa and if Odinareh Bingwa’s latest visual is anything to go by they are definitely onto something.
We were passed the link to this visual by Miss Ruby, who wanted me to comment on the quality of Kenyan videos from an outsider’s point-of-view and this is one song with an accompanying visual that really stood out to me.
Obinareh is an urban rapper from the south coast of Kenya, Diani. Pressure is the first single off his forthcoming Diani – Papa La Kusini mixtape to tide people over before he drops his Mwana Haramu album. The release date is yet to be announced.
Rather than write a young book about the track I’ll the track speak for itself. This one definitely makes on my #MusicToDabTo playlist. The Swahili-English bars show that music is a universal language and will have you nodding your head to the flow.
If you like what you hear and want more of his music you can check out his 2013 album HD [Hopes & Dreams] on iTunes.
