Kenyan singer and songwriter Bensoul follows up his hit record “Nairobi” featuring Sauti SolNviiri the Storyteller, and Mejja with an official video directed by Roadman.

Sol Generation Star Bensoul on Friday dropped his much-anticipated hit titled Nairobi and Kenyans can’t get enough of its lyrics and video, Real name Benson Mutua, to say the least, the song has touched almost everyone who is married or dating in Nairobi.

He was first introduced to the public during a virtual Blankets & Wine concert last month where Zeshary Jean and Muthoni The Drummer Queen performed the song and left fans wanting for more.

The Meshisha hitmaker did not disappoint with his new banger, a song he collaborated with Mejja, Sauti Sol, and Nviiri the Storyteller, One of the things that stood out in the song is the fact that the Sol Generation family brought in Mejja to spice up the song with his lyrics.


The song opens up with Bensoul reporting to Mejja that he has received the bad news that his friends are hitting on his partner, he goes ahead to sing about hearing how his lover is not exclusively his own but is going around with other men too. An actual common theme in Nairobi’s love circles.

“Nairobi Yule anakupea, pia ananipea Akikuletea, ananiletea Wanakula fare Sote tuna share Ogopa Sana” the lyrics go. It is a warning for everyone else to be on their toes when it comes to relationships.

Nairobi is a straightforward song, as it tends to paint a true picture of the dating life in Nairobi City and how everyone is sharing his/her partner with other people without knowing.

The song was written by Bensoul, Bien-Aimé Baraza, and Mejja while its audio was produced by So Fresh 254, Bensoul, and Savara.
