Lecrae Confirms New Album 2016
On Jan 15th 2016, we woke up to great news that Christian Hip-Hop artist, Lecrae, had released his new album, Church Clothes 3. It features guest appearances by E-40, N'dambi, Propaganda, John Givez, JGivens, Jackie Hill-Perry, and label-mate KB. It's a great album that any hip-hop head needs to get.
And now, Lecrae has revealed that he is back in the studio working on his new album that is scheduled to be released at the end of 2016. Here is an article from www.rapzilla.com
Lecrae said in an unreleased Rapzilla.com Live with Chris Chicagointerview that Church Clothes 3 will not be the last project he drops this year.
The Reach Records rapper/co-owner told Chicago that after his book, Unashamed, is published on May 3, he will put out his eighth studio album by the end of 2016.
Lecrae and artists close to him have shared on social media that he's been in the studio with Tori Kelly and King Los, among others.
Lecrae declined to reveal any more names in Rapzilla's interview, but what he did say will get fans' imaginations flowing."Honestly, I've been in the studio with legends," Lecrae said. "We'll see what actually makes the project because you don't want to get people too excited."
We look forward to his 8th studio album. In the meantime, enjoy this short film from Church Clothes 3.
Kubamba Video of the Week - 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".
ENDING 2015 WITH A BANG
After a long year of work, school, family ups and downs, new
friendships made and old ones lost, new additions to our families and
others lost, all the joys, pains, tears and laughter, the best way to
wind down is to spend time in God's presence.
It has truly been a good year, and we can all attest to the
faithfulness of the Lord, through and through. As Kubamba, one of the
most active ministries we have enjoyed is the K-krew Bible Study.
Every Tuesday evening, between 5:30pm and 8pm, an astounding number
between 600 and 800 young people gather at the Nairobi Cinema to spend
time in God's presence. It is always so captivating to see these young
people giving of their time and energy to serve the Lord. Indeed, it
has been an amazing journey.
In a bid to end the year with a bang, the Kubamba team is planning the
biggest jump-off party on the 31st of December 2015. This event,
dubbed "Totally Sold Out (TSO)", will be one like no other. Why, you
may ask? Well, those juicy details will only feature in upcoming
posts, so stay posted.
However, since we're feeling philanthropic in this season of
Christmas, we'll leave you with a few images...
Until then, God bless you all!

Kubamba Live from CITAM Buruburu
This weekend, 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'.
Bahati has a new song and video from a collabo he has done with Denno of Mbona fame.
In the song, Denno shares a little about his life from birth, never having seen the sun light. Bahati also highlights losing his mum in 1999 and the dad deserting him. But he goes on to looking at the bright side of life from the gift of music God has given him.
In the last verse, they give glory to God and show His goodness to them, 'People are singing their music."
The video which has been shot by Young Wallace has a good story line and the song is simple with a catchy hook. Enjoy the video and the song.
Kubamba "Fundi Wa Mbao" Edition
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.
Article from www.boombox.com
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
