Kubamba Top Videos
Worn - Tenth Avenue North
For those who are feeling the heavy weight of this world on their shoulders, or you are struggling in keeping up with your Christian walk, here is a song that might resonate with you in a very real way.
The song starts with the lyrics:
My heart is heavy
From the work it takes to keep on breathing
And the Chorus says:
Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart that's frail and torn
I want to know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that's dead inside can be reborn
Cause I'm worn
The song "Worn" is off their album "The Struggle".

Kubamba Video Of The Week: Mali Music - Contradiction ft. Jhené Aiko
Mali Music was able to contribute a powerful song, "Contradiction," to the "Chi-Raq" soundtrack, which dropped along with the film in December. The song featured Jhené Aiko. The duo come out strong with their lyrics and they call us to wake up to what is going on around us. They collabo well on this song. The song is slow with a great almost R&B/Reggae fusion.
Mali's message with the new "Contradiction" video is one that everyone can get behind. "Have we become so numb to the senseless violence and other nonsense in this world that people can quickly disappear from our lives [and] we just move on without missing a beat?" Mali wrote to FADER. "It's time we wake up and show each other how much we love each other before it's too late."

Kubamba Live from CITAM Buruburu
Kubamba was in Nairobi's Buruburu Estate popularly know as Buru or Buruklyn. The show, hosted by DJ Moz and Kambua was live from Christ Is The Answer Ministry (CITAM) Buruburu. The audience had great energy and danced to tunes from K-Krew DJ's Gee Gee and Hypeman Timeless Noel. There were performances from T412 who also launched their new video 'Flee', Fidel Atondola, Coopy Bly from Uganda and Janet Otieno. The show had an interesting session when the Pastors from the church were asked to a dance battle against "international" pastors, Sal Sberna, Loren Hill and Shawn Koonce representing Reach Youth Global. Here are some pix and also the new video from T412 'Flee'.
Kubash Class Of 2015 #KubashNaCocaCola: The After Party That Was
On the 29th of November 2015, all roads led to the City Hall Way where #KubashNaCocaCola the Ultimate Leavers After Party was held. Despite the dull weather that morning, people came out in their numbers to have a great time in song, dance and hype.
Some of the big names in the Gospel industry were in attendance, and these included, Bahati, Willy Paul, Kambua, Pitson, Mercy Masika, Eunice Njeri and Recapp.
Kubamba's very own Timeless Noel and Nakya the Hype DJ did a remarkable job as the MCs of the day. The energy they gave off made everyone forget that it was raining. At the beginning, people were a bit stiff because of the chilly weather, but thanks to the hype of these two individuals, and the very talented Kubamba DJs, the ice was soon broken and all began to have a great time.
The young people in attendance sang along, danced and cheered on the different acts as they enjoyed the complimentary Coke sodas that the Coca-Cola sponsors provided in plenty. Can you imagine drinking a soda as you dance outside in the rain? That's how epic the party was. All caution was thrown to the wind as far as the rain was concerned, and even umbrellas had a chance to take a break as people got their groove on.
Many thanks go towards all those who made this event a success, including our sponsors and everyone we partnered with; Citizen TV, Coca-Cola, The Nairobi County Government, HOT 96 radio, and Xpose Ltd. We would especially like to appreciate all our loyal fans who didn't disappoint in their attendance. The pomp, cheer and glam would not have been possible without you all. Above all, we give God glory for the opportunity to minister to thousands and bring honor to His name.
They say that a picture speaks a thousand words, so we'll leave you with a few images that portray a tip of the iceberg of what really went down at KUBASH, the 2015 edition. Our amazing photographers have got you covered, if you're curious.
If you weren't in attendance this weekend, you surely missed out, but there's some good news for you nonetheless; the crew at Kubamba is currently planning the ultimate end-year party, TSO to be held on December 31st 2015 at K.I.C.C. Look out for more details because you certainly don't want to miss out on this one!

Kirk Franklin - Losing My Religion
Andy Mineo - Uncomfortable
By Georgette Cline
Andy Mineo can rest comfortably knowing his sophomore album, Uncomfortable, is sitting at No. 1 on the iTunes charts on its release day.
The New York native, whose Never Land EP also earned a No. 1 spot last year, is moving away from the typical turn up anthems and pop-friendly records of his past to focus on a mix of old school boom bap mixed with some trap-inspired sounds on the new LP. Lauded producer !llmind came in to oversee the record and “add his textures to almost all the tracks to make it cohesive,” according to Andy.
For the 27-year-old rhymer, this is a new frontier. He wasn’t interested in making “part two” of songs like “You Can’t Stop Me” and “Paisano’s Wylin” that his fans have grown to love. Instead, he put himself in an uncomfortable space (hence the title of the project) to challenge his own creativity.
“I’m going against the grain of what works,” he tells The Boombox. “So like I know how to make turn up records, southern records, all the popular records that are out right now. But this is for the first time I think on an album I’m like no, I’m going to take my own artistic step in a different direction and say this is what I like and I’m not gonna just try to keep up with what’s happening. I’m gonna try to step out of the safe space to kinda curate my own sound. That’s what’s scary.”
Uncomfortable is a 13-track album that finds Andy wanting more from life on the title track, delivering a tribute to his deaf sister on “Hear My Heart,” praising the Big Apple on the Latin-flavored “Uptown” (make sure you listen until the very end) and reflecting on a broken friendship on “Ghost.”
We wish him all the best on his tour.

Enjoy the song.
Kirk Franklin has just dropped his twelfth studio album, Losing My Religion. It's a great 13 track album with a lot of content to get you reflecting.
During his interview with Power 105.1, he spoke about pride and his fear before he decided to get back to the studio to work on this album.
And speaking to Christian Post, he said, '"To be transparent, that's what took me so long to do the album. A lot of it was fear, and then I really began to learn that spiritually fear is a form of pride. It was pride that I would never be able to live up to 'I Smile.' I would tend to just kind of stay away, because I was scared of not being accepted like I was with 'I Smile.'"
And about religion, he said, "Religion is man's systematic approach to try to keep the rules. The problem is that when man's ideology and thought process gets involved, sometimes what he does is change the rules," Franklin said. "A lot of times the thoughts of religion are not all bibliocentric, sometimes they're cultural. Then it becomes cultural to say, 'it's wrong to do this and it's wrong to do that.' It becomes a misinterpretation of scripture."
The album which features great musicians like Kim Burrell, Lalah Hathaway is a must get. You won't be disappointed.
Here's his new video, Wanna Be Happy and his interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1.

K-Krew features on CBN
Angela Zatopak who is a reporter for CBN was in Kenya recently and she got to hang out with K-Krew and cover our ministry to show the world what God was doing in Kenya.
MUST SEE: Kenyans may not have liked Obama's alternative message but that didn't stop the dancing.
"Dance is the ultimate fun expression here in Africa. If there's a wedding, there's dancing. Even if a president comes to Africa there is dancing. We have to use dancing as a tool in what we do," Song and dance artist known as "Timeless Noel" said.
They may just look like a bunch of kids dancing and singing around the city streets of Africa. But sweeping airwaves and the streets, Kubamba, better known as "K-Krew," is a group of Christian DJs and dancers collaborating to reach Africa's culture through music and dance.
"I was in the secular industry and one of the most famous dancers in Kenya. I used to go clubbing, perform with some of Africa's largest mainstream stars. But then I gave my life to Christ." -- Angela Zatopek CBN News

After the Kubamba #Unlimifresh Campus tour around the country, the crew resumed the high school live show ministry at #Katchez and though the morning was chilly and rainy, the students and our team were ready to give their all for an epic show.
It was indeed a special moment for Dj GG and Njugush who were alumnis of the re-known school.
Even though the KCSE had already started, the students still rocked to the Kubamba atmosphere.
