Rocky Dawuni, Kyekyeku Release New Song “Africa Till I Die”
Friendship between musicians often materializes in collaborations. This is clearly evident on one of the most beautiful pairings from Ghana in the last year, “Africa Till I Die” which grew out of the friendship between multiple GRAMMY nominee Rocky Dawuni and Ghanaian musician Kyekyeku. The brand new video for the track premieres today on Pan African Music.
According to Kyekyeku; ‘’I first heard Rocky in 1997 when his monster hit “In Ghana” was on constant rotation on the radio. It wasn’t until 2007 at the Labadi Beach Hotel on the occasion of the 40th Independence Celebration of Ghana where Rocky held his annual “Rocky Dawuni’s Independence Splash” concert that the two met for the first time.” Moving forward to 2022, at a concert at +233 Jazz Club, Kyekyeku invited Rocky on stage for an impromptu jam on one of his songs. After the concert, it was clear that they had finally found a groove and inspiration for a song to work together on.
After the chaos of the last few years, it became even more evident that a good place to visit and spend time was within Africa. The video was filmed in France and Ghana focusing on the dreams of Kyekyeku in conversation with Rocky on an old phone toy that you still see children playing with in the streets of Accra. It is evident that in those cold empty French streets Kyekyeku dreams to go over the Atlantic and join Rocky in Ghana as he performs with his band and enjoys the sunny weather, bustle and energy of Accra. The music video for “Africa Till I Die” was shot by Slingshot who has worked with Rocky on a number of videos including his most recent GRAMMY Nominated song “Neva Bow Down.” Slingshot states “this video seeks to depict Africa and its beautiful people in its own light, its own words and its very own story and not one portrayed by the skewed perception of the mainstream media of the west.”
Kyekyeku like Rocky who both call Ghana and “the west” their homes could tell first-hand the joys of living in Africa; the immense beauty, the energy and resilience of her people, success and positivity that abounds. “We need to talk about that side of Africa a lot more, sing more, paint more.” Kyekyeku states. This then became the theme of “Africa Till I Die” a song that takes one into a deep and profound ballad Highlife groove. In the song, Africa stands unperturbed by the frequent negative images.
“Even when they paint you a picture
of starving and hunger
Nobody go fit put asunder
We keep on growing stronger.”
Plus the line “no where cool’’ which refers to the wars in Europe, Middle East as well as the general dissatisfaction with daily living in many nations. As a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for the Environment for Africa, Rocky Dawuni has traveled to many nations and attests first hand from his encounters that indeed all life begins in Africa. ‘“People wey I dey meet, places wey I dey go, na ibi you be the mother, Mama Africa” which he sings in Pidgin English on the track.
African music has finally taken its place as a force; gaining the deserved recognition it commands. Rocky’s line ‘’Now my people dey stand like giant’’ speaks concisely of the achievements of many Africans across the globe.
“Africa Till I Die is a musical success. It blends the native sound of Ghana, itself the product of a melting pot, with reggae born in Jamaica and claiming its African roots. The highlife rhythm has been slowed down and, by letting the bass flourish, the organ and the horns place their punctuations, offers a perfect backdrop for the reggae vocals, without even a skank guitar. This is the finest demonstration of a successful encounter, and it could only take place in Africa.” – PanAfrican Music

Eclectic and sharp-mouthed Ghanaian rapper, Strongman has just released a new single titled ‘Dirge’, and it’s already generating buzz in the hip-hop scene.
Produced by renowned beatmaker Tubhani Muzik, ‘Dirge’ is a hard-hitting track that showcases Strongman’s lyrical prowess and the producer’s exceptional production skills.

Gabiro Mtu Necessary And Javada Join Efforts in New Record “Kus Kus” Remix
Having had the Grammys Recording Academy’s attention twice with his two bodies of work MPITO EP and SAINT JOHN album, Kisumu-based rapper and singer Gabiro Mtu Necessary is not only grabbing his space on the world stage but also cementing his name on it.
Being a Kisumu city native, a city that is home to very many big names in the entertainment scene of Kenya, Gabiro boasts a high following in the region particularly because he runs all his business from there.
His debut album was released a year ago and has since sold over 100,000 physical copies and over 1 million streams across all digital platforms.
“I almost gave up doing music in 2021 after I released my extended playlist, MPITO, then later on it got a Grammy consideration and recognition. That pushed me to realize that it doesn’t matter how many views or streams your music gets, what matters is that if you are doing the right thing then someone somewhere is most definitely seeing you,” says Gabiro.
He continues to talk about meeting Javada and working on a couple of songs together including Kus Kus Remix;
“I first met Javada in 2018 and we kept the artistic friendship going until 2021 when we decided to hit the studio and we worked on this song together because he loved the chorus and the beat.”
Javada is a Jamaican singer known for his 2015 hit single “Wake Up Beside You” and “Oh Na Na” featuring Chris Martin.
Kus Kus was written by Gabiro and Javada and produced by Brian Robin for Jodifa Studios.
ABOUT GABIRO MTU NECESSARY
Starting as a traditional band member in 2013, Gabiro Mtu Necessary drew his earliest inspirations from Octopizzo, Lucky Dube, Khuli Chana, Juliani, and a host of others.
He is steadily building a reputation as Kisumu’s best lyricist but also shares his struggles through his art. From working as a matatu tout to battling drug abuse, Gabiro’s ability to tell stories separates him from rap music’s status quo.
“Music inspired me to persevere. Persevere and self-educate myself. When I was going through it, the thing that held me down was an old computer at my uncle’s place where I stored thousands of downloaded beats. That’s why I’m so loyal to the cause and loyal to the culture. I feel like I owe it to music to do the best I can” – Gabiro
While many rappers tell us their stories, Gabiro can bring you into his world and show it to you. Perhaps his most notable song, “Story”, is a story of stories that happen in real life but are often ignored. Dramatically, this song discusses bullying, police shootings, drug abuse, and political injustice. Few artists connect with such issues through their music.
Gabiro’s diversity has seen him transition from not only being a rapper but also being the best lyricist as is on his current releases ‘Bad Girl Loving’ and ‘Kus Kus’. He portrays himself as the best export from the lakeside town of Kenya; Kisumu city where he has always made sure to be top of the class by being ahead of at least all trends and lifestyles in music.
To date, Gabiro has performed and toured with several renowned artists including Octopizzo, and SautiSol during “Made In Kisumu”, Jose Chameleone, and Macklemore, as well as shows like “2jinyce Concert” which holds sentimental value to Gabiro being that he is a Kisumu City native.
His show that meant a lot was when he opened for Diamond Platnumz in 2016.
He has worked with both young and well-known artists across the globe in both musical and nonmusical collaborations including and not limited to Kidis, Wyre, Ketchup, Owuor Arunga, and most recently Gengetone artist OnlyOneDelo on the song Twak Makende.
In 2021, Mtu Necessary got recognized by the Recording Academy and had his project JENESIS considered for the 64th Grammy Awards as the Best Global Music Album.
Again in 2022, he was among the African creatives who were appointed as voting members of the Grammy’s Recording Academy making him the only Kenyan in that 2022/2023 class.
Also in the same year, he released his debut album, “Saint John” a 12-track album with features from Jamaica’s Javada and Grammy-recognized producer Blakangel.
Early Life & Education
Gabiro was born Gabriel Washington Ogonda in Kisumu, Kenya where his father was a professor at Maseno University and his mother a tailor at the local market. He is the 4th child in a family of 5 children.
He moved from one high school to another before settling in Chulaimbo High School. Soon after moving to Chulaimbo, Gabiro was appointed the school choir soloist where he began to write and perform his lyrics during music festivals.
His stage name is derived from Gabriel, shortened to Gabiro when younger schoolmates found it hard to pronounce his name.
By the age of 17, he was regularly recording his music at Starbell Records. The management of the studio was so impressed by his lyrics that they allowed Gabiro to record for free.
At this time he was a student at Maseno University pursuing a bachelor’s degree in finance and marketing. He later dropped out of campus in his third year to pursue two other degrees in BSc computer science and BSc Anaesthesia.
Gabiro lost his father on September 9, 2019, to cancer of the colon. He has since dedicated his music and art to his father who greatly impacted his music career as his second manager after he parted ways with Starbell Records.
He continues his legacy by crediting him as the executive producer of his projects and even released his debut “Saint John” to pay homage to his late father.
Ghanaian Music Listeners Need To Expand Their Horizons – KFT
Ghanaian music has long been a source of pride and joy for many Ghanaians.
However, in recent years, there has been a growing trend of Ghanaian music listeners being too narrow-minded when it comes to embracing music from the diaspora.
Canadian-based Ghanaian musician KFT is calling out this narrow-mindedness and urging Ghanaian music listeners to expand their horizons and embrace musicians in the diaspora.
KFT, who released his “Heart Break Story” EP two years ago and recently signed with New Revolution Records, is currently in Ghana promoting his new song, “Odo Nwom” which translates to English as “Love Song”.
As part of his media tour, KFT is using this opportunity to speak out about the need for Ghanaian music listeners to open their minds to different genres and embrace music from the diaspora.
In an interview with Doreen Avio on Hitz FM, KFT believes that Ghanaian music listeners need to be more open-minded and willing to explore music from different cultures and backgrounds. He believes that this will help to create a more diverse and vibrant music scene in Ghana and expand our music territory.
KFT argues that, this will help to create a more inclusive and welcoming environment for musicians from the diaspora.
His latest release, Odo Nwom has been widely praised by music lovers as being a very authentic yet dynamic sound.
