The song features, Wyre, Gospel singers, Size 8, Evelyne Wanjiru, Mercy Masika, Rapper Trio Mio, Khaligraph Jones, Samidoh and Sauti Sol.
The song was preceded by a peace concert that happened last weekend in Nakuru.
Speaking to Mpasho.co.ke, Commissioner Dr. Danvas Makori said they put together artistes to preach peace.
"We tried to reach as many artistes in the song to bring the peace message as our work is to advocate for the best during this election."
"One Kenya, One People, One Love is a song is for Kenyans and it speaks to what the majority want. Kenyans don't want a repeat of 2007."
Trio's Manager Sofia Irma said Trio was a young boy staying in Eastlands when the 2007 violence broke out and the violence.
"Trio hopes that he will never have experienced that in the future."
Samidoh said they have come together hoping that our diversity will show great unity and oneness to our fans.
"We have come together as patriotic artists doing different genres of music to preach the message of keeping and maintaining peace even after elections."
In June this year, National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) said it is on high alert and has come up with a team to monitor the songs to prevent hate speech under the guise of art.
NCIC Vice-Chairperson Wambui Nyutu urged the artists to use their God-given talents to spread messages of peace and hope and not war and hate speech.
Nyutu said the commission has in the past recommended the prosecution of some artistes who spread hate messages through their music.
She said the commission would not hesitate to censure any artiste spreading hate.
