New music is always exciting and refreshing. Music of yester-years brings with it nostalgia and takes you back to that time when the song came out. Have you ever been listening to Kamlesh’s Sanaa Nyeusi or Manolo’s Mwingine then Juliani’s Exponential Potential plays? It takes you back (not to a destination but) to a time in the past and there are these emotions that sort of overwhelm you.
Here are songs that will take you back…
Michelle – Out Tonight (featuring Kerah)
Eko Dydda – Focus on Jesus
M.O.G – My Call (featuring Juliani)
“Our inspiration came from a point of desperation we were in … to come back on our feet from the scandals that had hit us on December 27th 2010 and also from Jeremiah 33:3,” reveals Boss of M.O.G. “It was the first ever song that made people know that I can sing.”
“This song reminds me of my high school days,” reminisces DJ Ted. “It reminds me of some plastic coloured shoes which we would match with the same colour T-shirt or polo shirts and half coats to add on. … and sakata season 1 dance. I had this song as my ringback tone.”
Kanjii Mbugua – Push On (featuring Tapiwa “Taps” Mugadza)
Kaberere & Mr. Vee – Just A Way
Manolo remembers he was fresh out of high school when the song came out. “I think it’s a really good song that reminds me of serving God,” he told Verse5ve.
New Move – You’re Good (featuring Zaidi Ya Muziki)
MoZay – Mwanga (featuring Mr. Boo, Kaberere, Daddy Owen & Christine Ndela)
