Industry Newbie 'Icy Lando' Presents His Debut Single 'Elevate'

Icy Lando (real name, Victor Buyuka) is a 26 year old rapper, singer and producer from Nairobi, Kenya. Raised up in Kayole, Icy was inspired to do music by his elder sister who was a singer herself and had formed an RnB singing group while she was in High School. 

This led to Icy starting to write music for fun at the age of 12. Victor later joined his high school choir while in secondary school – this is Pumwani High School, where he became an active member of the annual Kenyan Music Festivals, a competition for high school choirs in Kenya. He later joined the Kenyan Boys Choir after high school and sang in it for 2 years to develop his skills in music and performance.

Icy is now taking his experience in the music industry to a whole new level, by launching his solo career in May 2019. “Elevate” is his first solo project and being one who doesn’t shy away from a challenge, the new material marks a shift from his choir days to working with upcoming UK producer N-Geezy on a trap song.


Singer Ashleye Scarlette is Back with One of Her Most Vulnerable Releases to Date

Afro-pop star Ashleye Scarlette is back with one of her most vulnerable releases to date. Out on Tuesday (May 27), “Nikuamini” is a standalone single from the singer based on her personal experiences.

The new track, her first of 2019, is an impactful dance-tinged ballad that puts the emphasis on Ashleye Scarlett’s expressive vocal tone as she flits between airy breathiness and powerful, sweeping belts. Lyrically, the song relays the artist’s sense of assurance and focuses on a relationship that might end in sorrow despite her putting her trust in it -- “Nifanye Nikuamini,” she sings -- and shares how the singer wanted to hold onto it even though she knows that it was something she needed to turn away from.

A deep Afro-pop track, “Nikuamini” is a tempo-shifting dance song that puts the focus on her synergy as a vocalist. It seamlessly flits between the breezy tones of the vocalist and her gruffer deliveries to create a vibrant soundscape soaring with shimmering synths and groovy beats.

The music video for the song bring even more focus on the theme as portrayed in the lyrics with the director capturing scenes of the singer having a conversation with the said lover then back solely onto the star, doing away with the flash and flare often associated with the world of pop and instead pans over the normal union of a couple in argument.

Watch the music video for the new song "Nikuamini” below

Veteran Busy Signal Drops High Energy Dancehall Track Laced with EDM.

Reggae/dancehall veteran Busy Signal has dropped Visuals to his new Jam, "Got To Tell You" by , from his upcoming album Parts of the Puzzle.
The self-produced and self-written track which was released April 26th, is a high energy dancehall track laced with EDM.

The vibrant and sunny visual, directed by Unlimited LA (Maleek Berry, Konshens), was shot in Miami, FL and features Busy Signal in the midst of a neighborhood block party as he sets his eyes on one girl listening to music while dancing as she walks. This then leads to a larger party where they finally meet.

“Got to Tell You” follows the success of Busy Signal's recent string of singles, “Stay So”, “One Way”, “Dolla Van” and more. With hit after hit, Busy Signal has established his talent and staying power in the industry with his versatility in blending dancehall and reggae with EDM, afrobeats, salsa and other international sounds to create hardcore bashment anthems and transcendent global hits. 

Born Reanno Gordon, Busy first burst on the dancehall scene as part of iconic deejay Bounty Killer’s Alliance crew over a decade ago, establishing himself as a major factor in the genre with his breakthrough hit “Step Out” and an album by the same name. Successive projects like Loaded and D.O.B. further showcased Busy’s outside-the-box lyrical displays and eclectic ear for rhythms and, in 2012, he went back to basics with Reggae Music Again, an all-reggae set selected as one of the Top 10 albums of the year by the BBC. 

In addition to solo work, Busy has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Major Lazer, who featured him on their 2013 international smash “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)” and “Jump” off 2017’s Know No Better EP, as well as on the title track from No Doubt’s Major Lazer-produced album Push and Shove. A remixed version of “Jump” can be heard in Bacardi’s “Dance Floor” commercial campaign currently airing on TVs across North America. A pioneer in the fusion of dancehall and Afro sounds, Busy Signal has also cultivated deep ties with Africa, frequently visiting countries such as Zimbabwe and Gambia to perform. With one foot firmly planted in the core Caribbean market and the other always exploring new sounds and styles, count on Busy to deliver another epic musical journey. -Some words by Jesse Serwer of Large Up


Kenyan Rapper Gabiro Pays Tribute to Fallen Musical Greats, Condemns Fakes to the Grave

Death they say takes no bribes and as a matter of fact nobody wants to die. It is however a known fact that we are all headed to the grave and only the day and time differs.

The manner of death might also differ with some dying from sickness, others from accidents while some are just victims of murder.

The Music industry has lost some big names since time in memorial. Many legends have died natural deaths while some have been killed by rogue individuals who did not want to see their stars shine any further.

American Rapper Joyner Lucas headed to church to plead with a higher power as to why he's taken so many legends from our society, but has decided to leave us with those that have lived a life of crime or individuals Lucas simply believes aren't worthy of life.

Lucas paid tribute to those lost such as Nipsey Hussle, XXXTentacion, Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Eazy-E, Aaliyah, Trayvon Martin, Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson.

He dropped the official Visuals to his Video titled Devil's Work and it immediately went Viral with a number of Artistes and Fans sharing their thoughts on the same.
Kenyan Rapper Gabiro Mtu Necesary has also joined the bandwagon and has dropped a new single off the new world controversial hit.

Just like Joyner Lucas, Gabiro takes his fans on a conversation with God on why He (God) allows good people to vanish and allow the bad ones to stay.

In the song, recorded at MGF Studio, the self-proclaimed Kisumu President is pouring his heart heavily and he definitely sounds angered with all that goes around him; playing into the theme of being denied a chance together with other pioneers from all walks of life.
"I would not like anybody to misunderstand or misquote the lyrics on this song at any time because it is nothing more serious than an artist expressing themselves artistically in a song. Everyone mentioned in this song has in one way or the other either supported me as a brand and or as a person or they had an impact in whatever I am doing today" Said Gabiro.

He continues, “If at any time any of us will feel so much offended that they can never forgive, I would like to remind them that we are all sinning so may God forgive me coz I am just singing.”

For someone to want a tragedy like death to befall you they really must have had the toughest time of their life keeping up with you but who are we to judge yet we are all sinning.


Chelsea Boost Top 4 Hopes With Emphatic Display Against Watford

Chelsea took a huge step towards Champions League qualification by completing a 3-0 victory over Watford at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Tottenham's 1-0 loss to Bournemouth on Saturday opened the door for Chelsea to go third in the Premier League and they took advantage courtesy of goals from Ruben Loftus-Cheek, David Luiz and Gonzalo Higuain.

The Blues were under pressure for much of the first half and lost midfield enforcer N'Golo Kante to a muscle injury after 10 minutes, making the France international a doubt for their Europa League semi-final, second leg against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.

The recalled Eden Hazard assisted goals for Kante's replacement Loftus-Cheek and David Luiz in the space of three second-half minutes, before Gonzalo Higuain rounded off the scoring as Chelsea edged closer to a top-four finish.

Bottom Side Huddersfield Help Man United Book a Europa League Spot

Manchester United's Premier League top-four hopes were ended after being held to a 1-1 draw by Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium on Sunday.

Scott McTominay put United in front with an early strike from 16 yards that Jonas Lossl should have done better to keep out, although the Danish goalkeeper made amends with his part in the equaliser.

Lossl's pass was not dealt with by Luke Shaw and Isaac Mbenza was able to convert to earn the Terriers another famous result against United, who are now winless in six away matches in all competition after seeing Paul Pogba strike the crossbar twice.

United, beaten 2-1 here on their previous league visit, are now four points adrift of the Champions League spots with one game left to play.
