Kenyan rapper Vicmass Luodollar has followed in Childish Gambino’s footsteps.
He has now released a song ‘This Is Kenya’ that touches on issues to do with corruption, tribalism, the looting of NYS, killing of baby Pendo, Nakumatt downfall, Miguna Miguna’s deportation among others.
In the song’s cover art, is an image of Miguna Miguna.
In an exclusive interview with Mpasho.co.ke, Luodollar says he did this song from the inspiration of ‘This is America.’
“CHILDISH Gambino’s song, This is America, inspired me to release ‘This is Kenya’, and then Falz took over and touched on issues that his country, Nigeria is facing. So I also thought it was nice to speak out on the issues that Kenya is also going through.’ He said
Here is the viral song
Now here is the original song, ‘This Is America’ done by Childish Gambino. So far, the song has hit over 200m views on Youtube.
Nigeria’s Falz also jumped onto the viral trend and released ‘This Is Nigeria.’ However this song has gotten him into trouble.
Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has hesitated in its decision to institute a court case before Folarin Falana, better known as Falz, to court over this musical video.
It will be recalled that the Muslim group had given Falz seven days to withdraw the video or risk being sued for what they call “offensive” scenes in the video.
