Rwandan R&B and Afrobeat singer and performer, King James (born James Ruhumuriza) is famous across East Africa for his characteristic energetic and entertaining live performances.
The artiste’s music career started in 2006, but was met with little success. Three years after, the artiste continued to open for bigger artistes until the 2009 release of his highly-acclaimed single, “Intinyi,” fully launched him into a promising solo career.
King James has ever since firmly established himself as a leading East African R&B artiste ever since and, this time, the “Naramukundaga” crooner comes through with a new jam that’s sure to get you in the mood to groove. He titles this masterpiece “Hari Ukuntu.”
Released under the Monster Record label, “Hari Ukuntu” is every second a beautiful song. The Primus Guma Guma Super Star 2012 winner does perfect justice to the work done by producer, MadeBeat, as he expertly laces the dope instrumental with his silky smooth vocals. The vibe is expectedly accompanied by equally impressive visuals directed by Cedric and Shax
It would be recalled that the “Ndagukunda” songster was signed to the Kina Music label under which he released his debut and sophomore albums, “Umugisha” in 2011 and “Umuvandimwe” in 2012. After a hiatus of sorts, the artiste returned to fame with the release of “Ndakwizera” and “Buhoro Buhoro.”
As if to further underscore his mastery of his craft, King James released “The girl is mine,” a single on which he featured the famous “Turn Me On” Dancehall superstar, Kevin Lyttle.
“Hari Ukuntu” is a definite banger, and is sure to top the hottest East African charts for a while. Whether or not you’re a fan of King James, we’re optimistic you’ll love this song as much as we do.
