We’ve Discovered Sichangi’s Secret

IMG-20170616-WA0032Sichangi is a bad man. A superhero. A gem that everyone discovered at the same time and there was an immediate consensus that he is on his own lane.

The Prodigy

Album: Euphoria

Before, this album I hardly knew Joseph Kamaru aka KMRU but after running a background check on him by snooping on his SoundCloud channel, I have to say he has some solid backing if you consider the positive reviews by edm kenya.  Continue reading The Spotlight| Euphoria by KMRU
