Start Your Week Off Right With This Kenyan Trap Banger From Wuod Baba
The Nairobi-based rapper premieres the visual treatment for "Akinyi."
Wuod Baba is an up-and-coming artist whose vernacular rap style is a refreshing display of authenticity in the Kenyan hip-hop scene.
Born and raised in South C, a creative hub in Nairobi, he has managed to cultivate his own unique sound dubbed as "the Luo Trap."
In his new single, "Akinyi," Wuod Baba flexes his lyrical prowess and effortless flow over an explosive trap beat. Akinyi is a name given to a Luo girl who is born very early in the morning. The song is about a young independent girl with high levels of positive energy and is always winning.
Anaka is a director and photographer nomad. They are an American artkivist (artist and archivist) that has spent most of 2018 abroad in South Africa, Kenya and Madagascar collaborating with artists across the diaspora.
