Kenyan artists Wyre and Suzanne Gachukia release “Kondo Gakwa” video

Headlines Kenyan artists Wyre and Suzanne Gachukia release "Kondo Gakwa" video

The first single off SuZANNE GACHUKIA – ZannaZIKI AllStars album is here!

The classic hit – KONDO GAKWA – gets zapped into 2017 by WYRE and SuZANNE GACHUKIA’s energetic collaboration. The video, directed by Director Kevin ‘Bosco’ Jr, brings the song to life with a fresh, entertaining dance vibe.

 

Talking about the recording session with Danish producer Klaus Seest, WYRE says, “I grew up listening to Suzanne’s music.  She was an early inspiration to me and many others in the music industry – that’s why I was excited to collaborate on this latest remix of KONDO GAKWA. Gachukia and her band Zannaziki originally released KONDO GAKWA on their Tamu Tamu album in 1998, which became a big hit and featured a remix bonus track from then fresh hip hop artistes – K South.

WYRE continues,  “When I got into the studio, I loved the whole vibe that (producer) Seest had brought to the track – he’d kept the original sound and the same melodies, so my challenge was to bring the new school vibe and that was the Dancehall vibe that I did on it!”

 

Undoubtedly, one of Africa’s most entertaining performers, WYRE confides, “This year I’m celebrating 20 years in the music industry – I grew up on Musikly Speaking & Zanna- I’m so proud to be a part of this project, because I really looked up to (them) – Suzanne paved the way for so many of us”.

 

The single is the first from Sub Sahara Entertainment’s upcoming twin volume compilation of compositions; by renowned Kenyan hit-maker, performer and trailblazer, SuZANNE GACHUKIA – The Zannaziki AllStars; all performed by a stellar cast of celebrated Kenyan artists.

On his part, Wyre has collaborated with many local Kenyan artists including Khaligraph Jones, Nazizi, Kidis, Prezzo,  Vigeti, Nonini, JB Maina, Benjamin Kabasele and international artists such as Jamaica’s Alaine, Cecile and Morgan Heritage, and P-Square, 2Face and Idibia from Nigeria.

 

Look out for SuZANNE GACHUKIA – Zannaziki AllStars VOL I. Release Date: March 28th, 2017
