Unlike European, American and some Asian countries where music has so much evolved with the use of almost every musical instrument there is, in Africa things have been taking the continental drift pace in terms of adoption.
That however is not the case for one of Kenya’s top violinist we current have in the nation- Scott the Violinist.
Born Scott Kabugi Mwangi, he is the younger sibling to Kenya’s most sort after dance, trance and techno music spin doctor Deejay Protégé.
A second and last born in his family, Scott the Violinist grew up in California Estate in Eastleigh Nairobi, raised by a single parent Professor Thomas Mwangi who is their father.
Scott the Violinist attended Wankan Academy for his primary education in Ruiru and Upper Hill School for his secondary in Nairobi and later joined the University of Nairobi to pursue a degree in Public Relations.
Aiming to revolutionize the local entertainment scene, Scott armed with a violin becomes the first Kenyan violinist to take the scene by storm, covered numerous hit songs from across the world including Sauti Sol’s “Coming Home”, Avincii’s “Don’t Wake Me Up” and even Swedish Child Mafia “Don’t You Worry” in which he teamed up with his big brother DJ Proteje.
