Afro-Funk-House artiste Kagwe Mungai has teamed up with Afro-pop singer Dela and rapper Khaligraph Jones to produce a track in celebration of Kenyan football heroes.

The song Hii Game Ni Yetu captures the celebratory, upbeat spirit that is characteristic to Africa, to motivate the SportPesa All Stars players and get fans fired up ahead of the much anticipated friendly match against EPL side Hull City.

The match which will be played on the February 27, 2017, will see a select Kenyan side play an English Premier League club for the first time ever in England.

“The intention was for the track to be Kenyan but have an international sound hence the elements of African voices and sounds as well as modern sounding instrumentation to arouse a sense of patriotism in Kenyans and trigger support of local sports,” said Kagwe.

GREAT CHEMISTRY

It took Dela under 20 minutes to write her part, something she attributes to the great chemistry during the first meeting of the artistes in the studio.

“I love it when everyone is on the same page, it makes for a great collabo. The vibe was right because we understood that the SportPesa All Stars team was a huge opportunity for the players; life changing even,” she said.

Khaligraph agrees with Dela that the trio was a power team each being among the leading in their different categories, hence the ease with which they put the anthem together.

Dela reckons that everyone should listen to the song, not just football fans because it’s bound to lift spirits and get the fans moving.
