Local group returns with Mpesa deal
23 September 2014, 13:20
Nairobi - It seems like a year since last we heard from the P-Unit,
one of the most influential hip-hop group in the country.
Last anyone heard from
them was in February when they released their auto tune heavy “L.O.V.E” track
which has since become one of the hottest club hits in Nairobi. The boys have
broken their musical silence with the release of the posters and material for
their upcoming track called “Weka Weka”.

The track is set to be released this Friday September 26 2014 and will be available for purchase via M-pesa through a
service called Mziki na M-pesa. It allows you to send KES 20 to a pay bill
number, which will in turn send back a link for download. The Pay bill
number is 866256 and the tracks will be sent to a person’s data enabled handset
within an hour of confirming payment.
The trio seem to have had quite a character change in the 6
or so months that they have been away, trading their usual hip hop oriented
look for a slightly more formal look. Die hard P-Unit fans might be opposed to
this change but frankly I think they look better like this.

Whether the changes
have spilled over onto their music as well is a matter that can only be left to
speculation until the tracks release on Friday.
