It’s been a longish while Rwandan singer Mani Martin popped on our radar. A longish while. He is in view right now, though, and he has a splendid track in hand, titled “Mapenzi.” The track features Kenya’s boy band Sauti Sol.
For the records, the last time Mani Martin popped on our radar was as far back as June 2018, with a track titled “Rwagasabo (Accapela).” Before then he had featured on Marchal Ujeku’s “Omwana Akwira.” And that was it.
It’s been a long “divorce,” as you can see, but he’s back now and with something exciting too. Let the song continue.
Sauti Sol is without a doubt one of Kenya’s and indeed one of Africa’s major bands, the mastermind of hot numbers, and equally hot in demand across Africa as features. With tracks like “African Star,” which featured Burna Boy, “Rewind,” which featured Khaligraph Jones, and “Short N Sweet,” which featured Nyashinski, the group has strengthened its hold on Africa’s music scene.
By the way “Mapenzi” is a love jam in which the singers fervently express their feelings.
