Kamlesh Kagaba releases his third studio album – L.A.M.B. (Living All My Bars)

WHO IS KAMLESH KAGABA?

Patrick Kagaba a.k.a Kamlesh Kagaba is an East African Christian rapper and poet born and raised in Kenya by a Kenyan Mum and a Ugandan father. He began rapping at 16 years of age and started doing gospel rap in 2006 when he responded to the gospel and became a follower of Christ. Kamlesh Kagaba uses the Biblical sound as inspiration to his music ministry while making use of rap that allows for expression of his creative gift in a fun but thought provoking style to stir people from all generations to cultivate an intimate and meaningful relationship with God.

“MADLOVE MIXTAPE Vol.1”, a collaborative project with top gifted artistes across the Kenya in 2009 set an entry platform for him in the gospel music ministry. In 2011, he released his debut album “InDependence” which received incredible review ratings from top music industry players setting a platform that introduced him to the wider East African region. He toured Uganda and Tanzania. InDependence was themed on “Living in total surrender to God”. It featured hits such as “Its Okay”, “Changing the World”, “Mapangashua” & “Songa Mbele”

2014 was a defining moment in his life when he lost his mum. The experience served as a reminder of the frailty and temporal nature of human life; also, it inspired him to work on “Breaking News”, his sophomore album. The album was successfully released through a full live band concert on 13th December, 2015. The project contained inspirational hits such as “Mfalme” (featuring the Late Kaberere & Jaya), “Fika Bei”, “Nia Yako”, “Mwangaza” and “Frequency Yake” among others.

Kamlesh Kagaba has earned great respect among key music ministry and industry players due to rich content that speak to those in and those out of the Christian faith to live a life that edifies God and humanity. He has been nominated in the renowned Mwafaka Awards as a top Gospel Rap Artiste, Hip Hop Song of The Year. This talented rapper has performed alongside top global artistes such as Da T.R.U.T.H., Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Deitrick Haddon, The Ambassador, K.B., S.O and Trip Lee.

In 2017, he was elected as the first Chairman of the Kenyan Holy Hip-hop Association and is serving to see Kenyan Christian hiphop grow to greater heights as he takes part-time studies in Ministry at the East Africa Baptist School of Theology. Kamlesh Kagaba is a dedicated husband and father. He is a strong believer and advocates for the family institution and staying plugged to a local church.

WHAT IS L.A.M.B.?

L.A.M.B. is Kamlesh Kagaba’s third studio album, the acronym stands for “Living All My Bars”; a complete thought emphasizing the eminence of living out what we say especially as believers. The heart of the message aims to exhort and instruct the listener to put to practice what they proclaim.

L.A.M.B. is primarily based on:

  • Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, (Titus 2: 7&8)
  • I tell you, on the Day of Judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matthew 12:36-37)

This masterpiece recording has some amazing features including Loso, a respected name in the Christian Hip Hop circles globally and top Christian rappers in the continent David Kalilani, Limoblaze, Courtney Antipas, Elandre, Rigga, Noel Nderitu, Tybe & Mohwaz.

L.A.M.B. strives to drive home the message of being TRUE TO SELF, GOD & HUMANITY by urging us to bear fruits that are consistent with the faith that we profess. Just as Matthew 7:16 says, “You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?”

WHAT PROBLEM DOES L.A.M.B. ADDRESS?

One of the key concerns is how it appears that the Gospel music scene is being defined and guided more by the music culture than Christ and the scriptures. This is also true in most career fields and society in general. Christians have become lukewarm in living out what we proclaim and preach. If Kenya’s population is 70% Christian, as statistics currently show, why does the character of this nation not match this statistic? Are we Christians by speech and name but actions and character the exact opposite?

What causes this disparity?

  • Lack of Discipleship [and accountability]
  • Pride [Lack of Humility]
  • Lack of Impact, togetherness with Churches, Vision.
  • Lack of commitment to the local Church &its mission.
  • Lack of sound teaching

OBJECTIVES OF L.A.M.B.

L.A.M.B. aims to:-

  • Put more emphasis on character development than just craft enhancement in music and ministry.
  • Enhance faithful handling of God’s word and establish a discipleship culture in the Gospel music scene for the sake of growth in the faith to effectively advance the Gospel.
  • Help uprising and established Christian musicians approach their music with biblical views and solutions in order to produce a systematic change in the community.

Using the above model, L.A.M.B. will spread the same message to other sectors of the society in a bid to create a more impactful Christian movement in the country and beyond.

This will be achieved through a myriad of media beyond the music album, namely; conferences, Workshops and Seminars, Tours/Concerts & Publications

All these will be geared towards:

  • Bringing a missional balance to our generation. ~ Matthew28; 18-20
  • Getting us to re-evaluate our hearts. ~ 2 Corinthians 13:5
  • Edifying, educating and equipping believers (starting with Gospel Musicians) ~ Ephesians 4:12

The main concert was on Sunday August 27th 2017 at Karura Community Chapel. Pitson, Bigman and Recapp were the opening acts and they did a good job at it. Pompi was also handed the Groove Award for Best Southern Africa Artist Of the year by the Zambian Ambassador to Kenya Brenda Muntemba.

MALI MUSIC

Kortney Jamaal Pollard (born January 12, 1988) who performs under the stage name Mali Music is an American recording artist, singer-songwriter and producer. Pollard was born in Phoenix, Arizona. He learned to play the piano at age 5 and at age 11 was active in the ministry of music in his church. His two independently released albums, The Coming (2008) and The 2econd Coming (2009), earned him much critical and underground acclaim. In 2011, he was the first inspirational artist to be a part of BET’s acclaimed “Music Matters” series.

Signed to RCA Records in 2013, Mali released the single “Beautiful” in anticipation of his first major album release Mali Is… which was released on June 17, 2014 and earned a Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album. In 2016, Mali Music issued the single “Digital” in advance of the release of his fourth studio long-player, The Contradiction of Mali, which dropped in early 2017.

LILLY MILLION

Dubbed South Africa’s Tracy Chapman – Lilly Million is soon to be a forced to be reckoned with in the African music industry. Her music is along the lines of Folk/Soulful rock. After two years in the making, and after 3 singles “Frontlines” “Better Things” and soulful ballad “Tell Me You Love Me” on heavy rotation in South Africa Lilly had the opportunity to dip her feet in the music industry water piquing the interest of audiences and the industry in general, and finally released her debut album on Love, Truth & Freedom in 2012. The bohemian folk singer caught the attention of record executives in 2010 at an impromptu performance in Melville. The label, Electromode, were intrigued by Lilly’s off-the-wall presence and unique voice. There was certainly no other young black female in this country performing folk music, and if so, certainly not with this level of passion, distinctive vocal delivery and lyrical poetry!

Between 2011 and 2012, Lilly Million has already performed at both the White Mountain Festival, Oppikoppi, Hansa Festival of Legends and Jacaranda Pops and has been working the live circuit in Gauteng with her 4 piece band. She has performed alongside the likes of The Muffinz, Nothende, Khaya Mthethwa, Arno Carstens, David van Vuuren and Doctor Victor to name a few. Lilly also collaborated with Teargas on the song “Forgive Me” on their latest release “Number Number”. Lilly Million has been compared to the legendary likes of Tracy Chapman which sets a high standard which her debut album “On Love, Truth & Freedom” manages to deliver. It is a fusion of her love of organic folk and powerful pop and soulful rock, lyrically questioning truth, politics, current affairs, freedom and of course, love.



In 2014 after coming to firm grips with her faith Lilly Million decided to take a leap and move into Christian Contemporary music. She left her previous label and has gone on to join the Christian Entertainment powerhouse – Fresh Impressions. Lilly has collaborated with Abel Chungu (Zambia) on the song “Superman Stronger” which his latest album release ‘Love Unleashed’. She has also performed alongside highly recognised acts including Janette…Ikz and Ezikiel Azonwu of P4CM, DJ Eazy and touring with Da T.R.U.T.H as part of the Celebration of One line on December 2014. Lilly has also since recorded and released her first gospel offering entitled “A Traveller’s Rest” which tackles the rocky road walked by believers while still maintaining her original, authentic and quirky sound.

Besides music Lilly is also a qualified Scriptwriter and budding director and wrote directed both her music videos for “Frontlines” and “Tell Me You Love Me” which managed to achieve rotation on SABC3, ETV and Channel O. She has also directed music videos for other local artists including Tuks Senganga “Let me Live now”, Notshi – “Birthday weekend” as well as D-skwad – “end of the month”.

One of her greatest achievements is the Mzansi Gospel Award Lilly received for “Best Female artist of the year” in 2015 for her acoustic EP entitled “A Traveller’s Rest”. This budding star definitely has a lot to offer in entertainment industry and is set to shine for a very long time. If you have never listened to Lilly Million, do not waste another minute. Lilly’s rich poetic lyrics expressively framed in simple melodies is bound to capture your attention.

DA’ T.R.U.T.H.

Philadelphia’s Emanuel Lee Lambert, Jr. known on stage as Da’ T.R.U.T.H. is the forerunning artist in Christian Rap. This Cross Movement protégé is an urban missionary who is decorated with honors and accolades in music, an educated teacher of the Word and a continually evolving entity with an enthralling desire to impact a generation with the truth. Receiving Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at a very young age, Da’ T.R.U.T.H. listened to contemporary Christian music but never had an interest in rap music although finding elements of the culture appealing. He began playing drums as a teen and discovered a natural deft for rhyming when stumbling into free-style rap. This innate skill led to Da’ T.R.U.T.H. co-founding a Christian Hip Hop group NIV and acquiring the first moniker of Truth. From there the urban missionary was birthed.

He released his first album under Cross Movement Records named Moment of Truth (April 6, 2004). The Faith is the second solo album from Christian hip hop artist Da’ T.R.U.T.H., released on September 13, 2005. On July 10th 2007 he released his third album Open Book. In 2009 Da’ T.R.U.T.H. released his fourth album called The Big Picture which features collaborations with Kirk Franklin, Trip Lee, and Tye Tribbett. This project hit No. 1 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel Chart on the day it came out, also reaching No. 1 on the CMTA R&B/Hip Hop Chart, No 2 on the Billboard Gospel chart, and No 4 on the Billboard Contemporary Christian chart during release week. His fifth album was titled The Whole Truth (September 13,2011); sixth was Love Hope War(January 29, 2013); seventh was Heartbeat (April 15,2014) and eighth was It’s Complicated(June 3 2016)



A graduate of Philadelphia Biblical University and The Institute of Jewish Studies, the vanguard rapper received a 2007 Stellar Award for Rap/Hip Hop Gospel CD of the Year for THE FAITH. That album was highlighted by Da’ T.R.U.T.H. co-producing and even playing keyboards and drums accentuating his credence that “artistry should never be place on the altar for the sake of the message – instead, it should heighten it potency.”

2009 brought about a Stellar Award and Grammy nomination for OPEN BOOK. Continuing this impressive streak, he captured a 2010 Stellar Award for THE BIG PICTURE which also reaped Grammy and Dove Award nominations. THE BIG PICTURE was the first Christian Hip Hop CD to debut in the #1 spot on the iTunes Christian and Gospel chart and Da Truth’s second debut at #2 on the Billboard Gospel Charts. Da’ T.R.U.T.H. continued to establish his place as a hit maker being featured on two top 10 singles (Radio and Records Christian Rhythmic Chart) with label-mates The Ambassador (“Feels Good”) and Flame (“LADIES”).

Featured on Kirk Franklins “Hero” world tour alongside duo Mary Mary, Da’ T.R.U.T.H. has toured extensively making appearances at Bishop T.D. Jakes’ MegaFest, Christian Music’s premiere music festival Creation Fest, Rap Fest, Flavor Fest and many others. He also garnered television appearances and performances on the 24th Annual Stellar Awards, MTV’s My Super Sweet 16, BET’s Lift Every Voice, TBN, Daystar and Gospel Music Channel.

Although decorated with awards and honors and a respected catalog of hit singles and records, the real fruit of Da’ T.R.U.T.H.’s labor is in the lives of the people who have been exposed to his ministry.

Relentless 2017 will be happening at the Nairobi Chapel Hyper Dome on Sunday the 24th of September from 2pm onward. Come and experience Grammy nominated Gospel superstars Mali Music and Da TRUTH, as well as South Africa’s Lilly Million, our very own Noel Nderitu and DJ GG blazing the decks.

NDAANI KABISA Lyrics by Mc Joe

Ndaani Kabisa Lyrics by Mc Joe

CHORUS
Niko ndani zeiya hommie,niko ndaani,ndani ndani ndani ndaniii, ndani ndanii

VERSE 1
Hommie niko ndani kabisa
Nipate pale ndani kwa misa
I rather be 100% sure coz I wonna swim deep not the sea shore
If u still holding on never let go
Mediocre is waiting for u next door
Kama meshack shady na abedi niko ndaaani
U can find me in the zone what’s good nikitia maanani
Do a favour get delivered soon and very soon Jesus is coming
Imma tel you better saviour or hell is waiting that’s a warning
Am in ndio maana nakwambia amini
Neno lake Christ napigia campaign
Kuwa mkristo na si wa Sunday
This is supposed to be everyday thing
Whether uko kwa public or not seen
Everyday make sure that u keep it real

VERSE 2
Wow hizi ni gani unashangaa
Lazima hii message ingepasiwa in a way inashika kwa vichwa
If you think its so funny piga picha
Ile siku we utakufa je
Utakua ndani ama nje
Right now u may not be feeling it
But later u be wishing that u did
Finally when the dday check in
Hii maneno inakata ka msumeno lakini ukweli no
Unafaa kuita kamkutano
Ka wewe na wewe na we
Rekebisha uhusiano na ye
Majaribu yote yaambie ng’we
Haiwezi kupatapata kamwe
Put ur hands in the air
Make a decision not go to the hell
In the God’s kingdom man u be well

My Time – Tulia X Lillywhite ft Steve Kimore

(Verse 1 – Lilywhite)
Am coming in with no limits this time, you stay on the way you get hit
You go mistake me for Barry Allen I’ve been fueled up by the spirit of God
N soon we be getting them roofs off, ima survive when it gets tough
If this is a calling why shy off, everybody’s like she ain’t tough
Lily’s trynna do what men do, I’m trynna do what you can’t do
Am in the race to my destiny, I got my eyes on the price
But first this folks to entice; bringing more souls to Christ
They saying this ladies don’t reason they ain’t on the logic we rolling on the fruity zone
My mama said we never get the chance we only take the chances to work it out
Clocks are always the ones that would stop, time is still rushing you better catch up
But hear this the fire that’s burning inside of my soul is the same fire that goin be in my songs

(Hook – Steve)
They ask me what I do yea I’m out here grinding
Preaching to the world you can still say we fishing
N nobody ever pull me out if it ain’t God
Nobody ever pull me out if it ain’t God
They ask me what I do yea I’m out here grinding
Preaching to the world you can still say we fishing
N nobody ever pull me out if it ain’t God
Nobody ever pull me it’s my time it’s my time yea

(Verse 2 – Tulia)
Dropping hard on this beat make you fall outta your seat
I bring my A game that’s why you always retreat
It’s a girl’s world now got the boys on delete
God, Family, Hustle I got all I need
I burn on my degree all I’m leaving is debris
I keep it one hundred you can’t underrate me
Grind all day work my way up the mainstream
Been a long time coming I’m living my day dream
I’m a lady of my status, never judge me by my gender
Climbing up the social ladder, it ain’t easy but I won’t tire
And I’m bringing my own fire and I’ll keep on going higher
Burning hotter than that solar make these haters wanna holla

(Hook – Steve)
They ask me what I do yea I’m out here grinding
Preaching to the world you can still say we fishing
N nobody ever pull me out if it ain’t God
Nobody ever pull me out if it ain’t God
They ask me what I do yea I’m out here grinding
Preaching to the world you can still say we fishing
N nobody ever pull me out if it ain’t God
Nobody ever pull me it’s my time it’s my time yea

(Bridge: Lilywhite x Tulia)
We make miracles happen got the boys all out in hiding
It’s a revolution got the ladies in position
Ain’t no competition we say it they listen
Ain’t no competition we say it they listen

(Hook – Steve)
They ask me what I do yea I’m out here grinding
Preaching to the world you can still say we fishing
N nobody ever pull me out if it ain’t God
Nobody ever pull me out if it ain’t God
They ask me what I do yea I’m out here grinding
Preaching to the world you can still say we fishing
N nobody ever pull me out if it ain’t God

32 TO LIFE by Gregory XIII

32 TO LIFE by Gregory XIII

They call me Gregory, was born a sinner
Am JUST IN from the LAKE like pier TIMBER
I ain’t CRYING A RIVER
I got Christ man, and am a winner
Like Gideon, march around the city seven times
Blow the trumpets, see the walls down
Down, Full body armor,
am a soldier in the army of Jehovah uh
Christ on my slingshot, like David, Victorious
Murder that, murder what? Murder flesh
Kill it everyday just to live afresh
New life, Born again, am born twice
Never gonna die twice
So I kick bars, and drop rhymes
It’s a war zone, and thank Christ
am alive
Heard them say Christian rappers sound too cocky
Uliza Soxxy
I am an UrbanLight, born of another breed
From the LAKESIDE, I flow with a COOL BREEZE
On these KICKS, I don’t SNARE, it’s all KUNG FU kid,
They call me BRUCE LEE
Moving target, city streets
RED beams za DEVO
anatry KUNIMARK ni kama WILMOTS
Na ka haujaget, we uliza ORIGI
hio ndio huitwa wordplay ile oriji
They got WADA on our case
We DOPER than Colombian coke
Not by self homes, it’s the power of The Living God
We, mpe uzito, Matthew 5:14, huo ndo mwito
Anasa za dunia NACHOREA ka CIRCLE (SACCO), UTIMO
MWAMBA nami, vipi daddy, umoja ‘di ukingo
Na kila nikifall off ni Ye hunipa lift off, KQ
MZAZI ka TUVA, I don’t curse on a track,
I sneeze on em, Akhchoo! Homey, God Bless you!
I move with no take two And remember to stay true
To Him who’s faithful

#High5ve Review

On Sunday, Verse 5ve Events Limited held their 6th event since 2014. The event dubbed #High5ve was mainly focused on deejay performances. 6 deejays in total were present to keep the show running. @thedjre who had a #Trap set was the first on the decks and started right on time. I do love people who know how to keep time. I have been to events which start 2 hours late disappointing all who got there on time. Anyway, all were treated to his great selection with the likes of Andy Mineo’s music piercing the surrounding. Hehe, people definitely got to know an event was underway in Memorial Park.
Dj Double O took over with some #newskool jams. As the Mcs- Church boy and Manu from Recap hyped the crowd. All the old cats were treated with some back in the day jams by Dj Krowbar. Now the most interesting set was from Mike Muema, an EDM producer from kubamba. As we sampled his Space and Depth EP + a few more remixes. I couldn’t help but laugh myself away as guys tried out some crazy moves.
Dj Mellops ushered in the performances from Dice Crew and Jims and Dims. All kinds of tech gadgets ensured the moment could be replayed again. He eventually completed his #Remix set and Deejay Sanch completed the show with some #Afropop. I believe this was the set with the most energy. With music from the likes of Annette Tenaya, Winky Daily the centre stage was thronged as dance moves were randomly chosen by the MCs and dance krews. If you kept up with all the energy am sure you may as well had your fair share of aching legs once you got home…hehe…but it was definitely worth it.
