LISTEN: 'Work' Cover by Fena Gitu
27 July 2016, 18:15
Nairobi - The only thing that is harder than following an excellent act on stage is making a cover to a song that is already too good.
Kenyan singer/ rapper Fena Gitu has taken up the challenge of making a cover to Rihanna’s global chart topping single “Work”.
With close to 560 million views on YouTube worldwide, it is easily one of the best songs the singer has ever released, and to think that someone would attempt to make it better than what it is, is ludicrous.
So was Fena able to pull it off? Yes she was. Her version of work, though leaning heavily towards the original, is exceptionally well executed, with the singer doing her best to ‘Kenyanize’ it while staying true to the original song. She adds a rap/ dancehall feel to the track which just completes it. Be the judge for yourself though.
