Nairobi - Octopizzo has become one of those artists who have managed
to stand so high above their competition that every new release is an event.
His latest track is no different with a little over 6000 views in less than 24
Dubbed ‘Butere’, this new release has a slightly more culturally
influenced sound to it, showing us just how diverse he can be as an artist. It
is a celebration of his culture as a Kenyan, having hailed from Butere, a
little known town in Western Kenya.
The track starts with a short message from the rapper
explaining what inspired the song. He has more than once been called out by his
fellow artists for being a sellout, something he speaks out against in this
He calls out those artists who have left the country and forgotten their
cultures, adopting western cultures. Through the video, he takes us on a tour
of his home town, showing just how culturally rich a place it is.
