The colossal giant is that the Hip Hop Industry in Kenya, is causing a stir in the international scene. This is of no surprise entirely. The marriage of English and Swahili got us what we commonly known as “Sheng” is popular language used to pass messages to the masses. The Kenyan hip hop music scene is no stranger to various tribal languages to produce massive hits either.
When the Hip Hop industry in Kenya was just a little toddler back in the 1990s, people took no notice at first. They just thought that the artists, were just copying what the media, in the western world was propagating.
The first to prove them wrong was a young producer/artist by the name of Ricky Oyaro whose hit “renaissance” caused a revolution in the hip hop scene. Others followed like Jimmy Gathu’s “stay alive” and the popular rendition of Marvin Gaye’s sexual healing in kikuyu produced by Ted Josiah. Kalamashaka, Ksouth are some of the greatest hip hop artist groups that acclaimed international fame. Making the world take notice of the Kenyan version of the hip hop. Let us not forget to mention Gidi Gidi Maji Maji who gave us hits like” unbwogable” and the legendary Poxy Pressure.
Subgenres like Kapuka and Genge emerged into what we now identify as hip hop. The godfathers of the current Kenyan music were, Abbas Kubaff, Esir, Nonini, Jua Cali, krupt, just to mention a few. We now salute artist like Khalighraph Jones, Octopizzo, Kaka Sungura, kansoul, Victoria Kimani, STL, Sauti Sol among others who have been representing us internationally.
