Top Kenyan artists have come together to work on a special project that will honor the late legendary musician E-Sir.
The musicians involved in the tribute song include industry veterans like Nyashinski, Nameless, Wahu, Wyre, Jua Cali, Big Pin, Mr Lenny, radio host Talia Oyando, and E-Sir’s brother Habib.
New-age superstars featured in the track, which was produced by Motif Di Don, are Nelly the Goon of Ochungulo Family and fast-rising hip hop sensation Trio Mio, who has often time drawn comparison to the Kenyan great E-Sir.
The audio of the song, as it appears, is already complete and the stars are in the process of shooting the video; according to a preview photo and video posted by Nairobi Gossip Club.
The group of the Kenyan all star musicians took a photo together, all holding bandanas with E-Sir’s face printed on them during the shoot.
March 16, 2021 marked 18 years since E-Sir’s demise in a tragic accident along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway on his way back home from a concert in Afraha Stadium, Nakuru.
Nameless, real name David Mathenge, was in the vehicle and survived the fatal accident, escaping with just a broken collarbone.
The country was robbed of a star that first stormed the music scene in the early 2000s, and 18 years later his legacy still lives on through his timeless music.
E-Sir, born Issah Mmari Wangui, had a brief but iconic presence in the Kenyan music scene, and is still widely regarded as one of the best rappers to ever emerge from the country.
