Maendeleo Music Video Finally Launched by Xpat Mkwanja

Kisumu’s celebrated music genius has hit the airwaves again. In a new video released last weekend, Xpat Mkwanja in collaboration with a songstress Nadia, are urging the electorate/wananchi to think deeply as they cast their votes. The song decries lack of voters cards among the youth who keep on complaining about development not happening, while they don’t want to cast their votes to elect right leaders.

This song is such timely as the politicians are now seen crisscrossing every breath and width of this country promising change, or encouraging the electorate to keep in them in power for another 5 year term.

Will this song be the song of the year into the elections of 2017? Yes, I bet.

Xpat Mkwanja has recently been producing society conscious music, trying to invoke thoughts and reflections to his listeners. With songs like AOL, Nyama kwa Nyama, Kabila Ingine feat. Dawe Dawe, and Extraordinary feat. Shamir – all Kisumu musicians/poets.

Listen to the song here below:

The Song lyrics are:

NI HAKI YETU, NAAPA NA MUNGU
JUU KENYA NI MOJA, NA KENYA NI YETU
TUNATAKA MAENDELEO, TUNATAKA MAENDELEO

Wa Kenya kulalamika, na pia kuhuzunika
eti mapoliticians wanawapagawisha
lakini voters card hawana, eti politics hapana
yet hao ndio wana, power ya kuwapa power
inabidi tuvote, tuchague leaders wa thoughts
wenye vision na plot, sio wa kunyakua plot
sasa imefika time, ya kuchagua leaders
wa, takao jenga Kenya, na, kutupa maendeleo

NI HAKI YETU, NAAPA NA MUNGU
JUU KENYA NI MOJA, NA KENYA NI YETU
TUNATAKA MAENDELEO, TUNATAKA MAENDELEO

Kenya, Kenya, Kenya taifa letu
jenga, jenga, jenga taifa letu
wacha ukabila, wachana na vita
naaminia tutasimama wima
tushikane si vijana, sasa ni kupa, pambana
kisumu, Eldy, na Tana, Lodwar, Machakos, Mombasa
kaka, nakaminia, mama nakuaminia
baba nakuaminia, tasonga asilimia

NI HAKI YETU, NAAPA NA MUNGU
JUU KENYA NI MOJA, NA KENYA NI YETU
TUNATAKA MAENDELEO, TUNATAKA MAENDELEO
