The album is titled ‘Public Demand’. The fans have been clamoring for a second album, so I decided to give it to them.

Should we expect collabos from artists outside Kenya in the album?

It feature artists from Kenya and across Africa: h_Art the Band, Kagwe, Gilad (KE/Israel) Adekunle Gold (Nigeria) , Locko (Cameroon), Silvastone (Sierra Leone / UK).

Many Kenyan artists have been shying from releasing albums for what can be term as fear, what would be your advise to them and any other artist who wants to release an album but is still reluctant?
The Kenyan music industry is still relatively young and so you’ll find most artists are independent and/or do music part-time. Releasing singles makes more sense, I would think, due to time and budget constraints. An artist shouldn’t feel like they have to put out an album. Especially in this digital era where physical album are basically becoming obsolete and artists have instant, direct contact with their fans. It really just depends on where an artist is in their career and what they’re trying to showcase, be it through a single, an EP, a mixtape or an album.
