Women revolution is here ladies and gentlemen, the entertainment scene is being taken over by women. Looking back 10 years, the Kenyan music industry was saturated by male artists compared to female and now the tables are changing.
A new femcee – well, to me as this is the first time I heard of her music, is making bold statements through music.
In her latest release dubbed “Kutupanga” a local slang meaning “lying intentionally to someone” is a rap song uses to pass across a serious message to politicians in Kenya ahead of the forthcoming general elections, asking Kenyan youths and voters to avoid violence and carry out there democratic rights peacefully.
“Kutupanga is more than just a song. It is a statement from the people, by the people and for the people. Power belongs to the people and not the belligerent elite. No more will politicians play us, the common man for fools every four years so that we can further their selfish interests!
It is high time we took back our country by voting wisely from the ground up. It is high time we held the looters and sycophants to account no matter their tribe, political affiliation or gender.” she explains.
Inspired by the quote “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” by George Orwell. This song was written, arranged and performed by MC Sharon also known as Decibelle, produced by Fred Fisher, Adrian Ngetho aka Mosh Rulez and its mixing and mastering done by Michael Itebete.
Accompanied by a stunning video directed by the awards winning video director Johnson Kyalo
