  1. Chumbani EP – Rigga


When you think you don’t have enough resources to do a project, think again. You can do it all yourself. Being a self-produced E.P, Rigga aptly dubbed it Chumbani because it was produced in his bedroom studio at home. The name also arises from the fact that he is giving you, the listener, access to thoughts, ideas and emotions that are normally keep private. The project was released on Thursday 14th September 2017.

  1. Spirit vs Soul – Joyce Omondi


It is awesome to have a worship album on this list. Joyce Omondi released her sophomore album dubbed Spirit vs Soul late last year. This album’s main goal is – to draw people unto God in true and earnest worship

The guiding Scripture for this musical project is John 4:23-24, “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in him spirit and in truth.”

Every song’s lyrics have been steeped in the Word of God and planted in Joyce’s heart through her daily devotions and personal walk with Christ. The music came alive in Dominic Khaemba’s studio at Ageless Music, alongside multi-talented musicians.

In the opening track Joyce shares a gem she’s picked on her life’s journey: “That music will always take you where it came from. That if it came from the soul that’s where it will take you, but if it came from the spirit that’s where it will take you. I pray that as you listen to this offering unto God that every word, beat and tone will bypass your soul & resonate with your spirit.”



This album has a song for everyone and every season. With tracks for church and individual worship such as “ Satisfy” and “ Lihimidi Jina Lake ’; a dance and praise song in the modern and up-tempo “ This is My God” ; Swahili praise & worship choruses in “ Simba Wa Yudah” and “Tumaini” ; a reggae proclamation in “ Jabali” and “Perfect Gift” a track for the festive season – produced by Jaaz Odongo.
