NIFUNZE LYRICS by Bire The Vocalist

Kama miaka sita iliyopita
Sikuwa na jina wangeniita
Sikuwa na wimbo mi ningeimba,
Sikuthani maisha yangu ingebadilika
Pole pole tu
Ninasonga juu
Unanifunza tu
Mwalimu wangu
Isifike mahali baba
Mi niringe
Isifike mahali baba

Hizo makofi
Hizo mashangwe
Hizo manduru zisinichanganye x2

Eeh baba eeh nifunze
Naomba eeeh nifunze
Ikiwa sijui kukuabudu baba nifunzee
Ikiwa sijui kukukupa utukufu nifunzee

Ninaimba juu uliniita
Nikifika juu pokea sifa
Nisiwe na roho wa kujiringa
Isifike siku nipewe sifa
Pole pole tu mi nisonge juu
Unifunze tu mwalimu wangu
Kujigamba kiburi baba nikianza
Bila wewe baba nitazama

Hizo makofi
Hizo mashangwe
Hizo manduru zisinichanganye x2

Eeh baba eeh nifunze
Naomba eeeh nifunze
Ikiwa sijui kukuabudu baba nifunzee
Ikiwa sijui kukukupa utukufu  nifunzee x2



I’ve come to praise you with my gifts and offerings.
My strong tower my help and hope comes from you
Nobody greater greater
Pokea sifa tele

But the world they don’t understand the mystery that’s in lifting hands.
But I’ve come to praise you, praise you X2

My God you are my source of life
The great deliverer
I’ve come to praise you, praise you X2

Twakuja kwa shangwe na nderemo kwako baba
Wastahili twakuiniua mfalme mkuu
Wewe ni Alpha Omega
Pokea sifa tele.

More International Acts this September – Catch Mali Music x Da’ TRUTH x Lilly Million at Relentless 2017

August had its fair share of international acts and September has been even more epic.

Pompi was part of an Instameet on Saturday 26th August afternoon at Rosslyn Riviera mall and later made a guest appearance at Worship in the Wild 3. Watch the snippet below of his acapella performance at WITW3:

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.

Donnie McClurkin was in Nairobi at the end of August for the Daughters of Zion (DOZ) convention hosted by Jubilee Christian Church Kenya. His tour climaxed with a free concert on 2nd September 2017 dubbed #WorshipWithDonnie at JCC Parklands featuring Sammie Okposo (from Nigeria), Mercy Masika and Bigman.

Hillsong United during their inaugural Kenyan tour visited Dagoretti High School and had a sold out worship night at Citam Karen on Saturday 9th September 2017 evening. They were accompanied by Hillsong South Africa Lead Pastor Phil Dooley. Mercy Masika, Everlyn Wanjiru and Mwanga Band were the opening acts. Their Kenyan tour was hosted by Hope media Kenya, groove networks, Mosound events and film studios.

Now on Sunday 24th September Relentless 2017 is going down at Nairobi Chapel, Ngong Road. The International acts include Mali Music, Da’ Truth and Lilly Million. Get to know them a little better in the next few lines.


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.


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.

Verse One (Shani)
Kuliko Deo, grace yake all day
Me ni wake all day
Kama bike Sina reverse, no way
Kama text Niko sent, okay
Just the other day
Nikazaliwa, birthday
Bila Yeye bad day
Ye amenilinda kama mlinzi Bila pay

Yale ninaweza, neema
Yale nimeweza, neema
Na Yale nitaweza, neema
Yale unaweza, neema
Yale Umeweza  neema
Yale utaweza, neema

Chorus (Shani)
This is my testimony, Lord you have done it for me
I will show your love, this is my testimony

Verse Two (Lesynem)
God got me feeling all new brand new like a newborn
I testify, salvation ni inborn
I hold this microphone, I rep let’s make history with your video phone
Used to have alot of beef like a bunch of burgers
Now I’m on my knees, Hakuna Matata
Na Sasa ninamuishia, Yale yote nilipoteza, Anirudishia

Vibing, Vibing Vibing, I’m Vibing with you
Waiting, waiting waiting I’m waiting on you
I got healing, faith believe me
Love God, praise, Believe him

This is my testimony, Lord you have done it for me
I will show your love, this is my testimony

Verse Three (Nelly)
I’ve turned the page it’s a new story
Can’t go out no alcohol no sorry
Yes no apology
It’s the same body, but it feels like
A heavenly body
Like air without O2
No breathing
Now I found you, I’ve been succeeding
What they sent to kill me healed me
And now you prepare a table before me

Siko tena pale pale Hio tena sio trend
Call me size 8 nilishachange lanes
Everything I went through wasn’t in vain
Sitalala Njaa tena juu, you’re the living bread
Yeah, Amenipa kibali
Nafanya vitu mpya tu kama Kibaki
Mjue waziwazi Yesu alishanilaki Siko tena chini ya maji tu kama samaki

Chorus (Shani)
This is my testimony, Lord you have done it for me
I will show your love, this is my testimony

KAMANDA FULL by Kamlesh Kagaba

KAMANDA FULL by Kamlesh Kagaba

Yeah, Kamanda Full
Kamanda wa Makamanda, this is my story, listen

1987, date eleven, mwezi wa seven
After baba kuponea, noma za Obote na Museven
Yaani vurugu  za Uganda, ndipo nilipo zaliwa Kamanda
Early 1990s hii nairobi nikabisha
Waruku burning shida zikanikaribisha
Mama jobless baba author cum publisher
Title poa but kihela hazikuendanisha
A family of six kwenye shack ya mbao
Nashuku nimewahi though sikumbuki nikilala ubao
Wengine wakila chakula finger licking
Our roof was leaking
Abit later, tukasonga to keja ya mabati
Room tu mbili but man ilikuwa bahati
Matha akapata job flani hata hairidhishi
But she always tried to come home na kitu cha kudishi
By then nilikuwa Kangemi primary aka gumbaro
Kabla nifike daro maze nilikuwa navuka mitaro
Vitu zikaimproove nikachange shule ya msingi to Muthangari
Nilihisi poa even though sio ati ni chuo kali
But ju iko located lavi
Nikaanza kuget exposure flani ya kibabi
Nakumbuka nikienda chuo kalesa, ubao inanileta
Ni grace tu ilinibeba
Two thao na moja
Interest ya hip hop ikaanza kugrow but ngoja
High school nikaenda Kitale pale boma high
Matha alifunguwa biz na ikapanda high
Form two, nikaanza kuandika bars tu kujibamba
By form three, nikashika M I C mara ya kwanza
Juu ya showcase fiti nikapewa tikiti
Kuenda Kijana Poa compe flani ilikuwanga eld
Hii ilikuwa 2004, boy mpyenga but anaslay show
Two thao na tano juu ya teo nikalay low
2006, nikadrop ni pambano
My debut single done by stano
By this time bado sijajua the gospel
Nilikuwa tu after kuwa na dope skill
Bonge la hypocrite, kuishi unlegit
Washi na kuparty man upevert indeed
Same year nikajipa kwa gospel nikaanza kusink in
Nikakiri damu ya Yesu ndio dawa ya my sin
Nikaweka all my faith in him
Hapa nimefika ni his work on the cross
Shout out to Pst. Dawson of course
2008, nikafunga virago nikarudi nai
Kuskuma hii mziki roho ju mpaka day itawai
Nikaaga maboy wangu akina Teddy B
Sikujua ndoto zitakam kujipa maen isivi
Nikameet Jefro pale wapi
Akaniinvite gig ya upendo chizi
Nikafeel at home kukick it na ma G
Wanapenda Jesus na Ministry
Mwaka huo ndio nilipoanza kudate mshi
Nikipray that one day atacome kuwa my wifey
2010, mabadiliko tour na jeshi ya kijiji
Irony ni walikuwa wanatoka ubabini na me kwa kijiji
After hapo nikaomba mshi tuipeleke next level
Mpaka bullet ya mwisho
Bonge la jiko, na recipe ya kucook
The Kagabas tulipitia but God did it for our good
Kuperform groove by then ilikuwa ni sifa
Tukado set ya CTA na ikajipa
Then as a guest nikaitwa show wapi
Gig yangu ya fao kukanjwa thao karibu twenty
May 2012 nikadrop ki debut album independence
Ila jeshi wakadai leta more content
2013, collabo “Chini ya Maji” na MOG
Beat commercial but, bado nikapenya ma G
2014 Feb sista akanicall usiku matha ako pabaya bro
Please say a prayer na ukiweza hata kesha bro
Kesho yake ngware, missed calls galore
Nikapigwa na wimbi
Nilipojua that matha alipromotiwa to glory
Kwa mapito yangu bado mfalme alikuwa juu
Nikaita Kabz tuabudu mfalme mkuu
2015, habari zikachipuka sophomore album
Project ilinitake much but I loved the outcome
Shout out to Othole Mukama kutonidoubt man
Genuine supporter, tangu day one
UrbanLight for life whether nifloat au nidrown son
Same year nikaingia bible college
Ive always had a zeal for sound biblical knowledge
2016, mwaka wa transition
From charismatic to the reformation
Usinibague kidenominational
Am not about the movements niko after what’s biblical)
Nikamove chuo nikamove church
2017 bado am still here, still a solid cat
Third floor naingia ka nimelearn much
Life yangu ni open book, nikae kwa local church
Ju bado sijatoboa bado nalearn kuendure poa
Na whatever happened to me, was never by accident
For me kufika hapa, neema ya Mola ni evident
Boy mchafu, but God huniosha
Character and family life the rest ni chocha.



I couldn’t believe my eyes. I thought that my ears deceived me too. It felt like some of those times when you wish that time could fly so fast. That all clocks could strike thirteen. I wished my past could be carried away by a swift neck-breaking whirlwind. My head was so cramped and my eyes itchy with fatigue but still my afternoon didn’t seem to come to an end. The silence was deafening!!

What kind of life is this? Why can’t the long wait come to an end? It felt like the minute-hand on my watch had stood still and my calendar dates stuck on one long day. It felt like a heavy truck glued in the mud with no hope of ever moving even half an inch.

I raised my voice towards the heavens so loudly that I was afraid the whole world could hear me. My voice echoed across the thick green terrain. Hours later, the fierce looking clouds stared at me as if they would fall off the sky and run after me. What did I do wrong? I couldn’t get it. Still no sign. What do I do? I lay down with my head touching the ground because I couldn’t look up any more.

I sobbed in distress. My heart was heavy. I said my prayer a dozen more times but still nothing! Seconds had turned to minutes, minutes to hours and hours to many days. A year later I couldn’t see the sun rise or even set. My eyes didn’t even seem to trace the horizon of hope. Everything was dark. Darker than the deepest pit. Darker than the darkest coal on earth. I had to leave. With my hurting self, I just had to start moving.

My feet were feeble and very sore. Just as I rose up to walk, I heard a soft small voice like a flute so many meters away. It got clearer and I heard the best words ever! The serenity in my heart was incomprehensible.

“My son, why are you in despair? I am the Sovereign Lord and my thoughts are not like yours, neither are my ways. I never sleep nor slumber. How you perceive everything in your life is not the way I do. Some things in life are best learned in the darkest moments of your life and I need you to trust me more?  Did you know that the dry desert in your life draws you more to the river of life? In the silence is where my answer is. My desire is that you trust the miracle even when it’s not already there. I love you so much to let you go. I am with you.”

“Are you going through the darkest moments in your life and it feels like the heavens are silent? Praise Him with songs of thanksgiving! Desire Him more and allow Him to teach your heart to wait. If Abraham and Sarah didn’t wait, what would have become of their generation? Would Job receive the double portion of His wealth and riches either? May be through your waiting is when others will see God. It’s not easy but it’s worth it!”

Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God”
