Local musician turns to politics
25 April 2016, 19:20
Nairobi - There are few artists
who have managed to successfully transition from being a coastal artist to
becoming a national icon like Cannibal has.
His music has for a long time
managed to bring that coastal flavor into hiphop, rivalling even the best
Swahili rappers from Tanzania. His latest release “Mdude” shows just this,
delivering some of the finest Swahili hiphop in 2016.
Cannibal seems to be
getting better and better at his trade with age, showing critics that he is not
ready to leave the industry yet. This new track delivers the goods when it
comes to videography as well, with stunning visuals.
He has also been in the
news recently due to his political ambitions, showing his intentions to run to
be the Member of county assembly for his home ward, Mtopanga in the upcoming
2017 general elections.
Check out his new release here.
