One thing that stands out for me about Jemedari is his Coastal touch. Is there a gangstar with a touch of gentleman kind of thing? Because that’s the only way I can rate his rapping and music style. I heard ‘Msenangu’ sometime last year and couldn’t stop playing it. Sampled from Pressmen Band’s Msenangu, it gives you that nostalgic feeling when zilizopendwa was the in-thing on air (read KBC lol) The chorus immediately takes you back to the drama club days
Tukajenge nyumbe mbeee
Nyumba ya gorofa
Who didn’t sing this song in school? I did!
Unlike most rappers, he takes time to appreciate the ladies with that soft touch I haven’t seen in the musical scene. I got to talk to him about sharing his bio on my blog. Read it below!
Jemedari, is not at all a new name in the entertainment world. He has laid stakes in various art form performances including poetry and Hip Hop, through both of which he has succeeded in creating the image that his alias provokes in the mind, that he is indeed the ‘general’, master of both arts, through which he effortlessly sends his message across.
His style of Hip Hop is very different in the sense that his lyrics are thought provoking and are evidently written with a lot of consideration to time, context and relevance.
He may be considered and categorized amongst the few cross-over rappers in Kenya whose music is enjoyed by both the young and old, thus has become a respected artist whose counsel in writing and performance has been sought by
some up and coming artists in the industry.
Welcome to the Jemedari experience
Here’s a song for the ladies
