Kenyan singer, songwriter, recording and performing artiste Viola Karuri has unveiled a Swahili adaptation of the world’s most watched song on YouTube, “Despacito”.
She has decided to wet our appetite with this rousing and fully adapted version of the mega hit song. Viola’s Tanzanian roots and the fact that she spent the better part of her childhood living at the Kenyan coast has richly influenced her mastery and command of the Swahili language which you fall in love with when you listen to this adapted version.
A graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music, her music is her expression of emotion, thought and culture.
With her debut album, “Everything” and a number of singles, including ‘Milele’ which featured Collo, “Aibu” (Out the door), and “YOLO” under her belt, she is currently working on her sophomore album.
This “Despacito” Swahili adaptation is very sensual and still maintains the original song’s energy and up-tempo. We can bet her fans had missed her irresistible and sweet voice.
The track comes along will super sexy visuals, watch below, enjoy.
