Multi-talented US-based Kenyan artiste King Kanya —the 2017 AFRIMMA Awards nominee in the category ‘Crossing Boundaries With Music’ has released a new EP titled “VIBES” and single titled “Royal Family” produced by Willbeatz.
The 5 tracks EP features collaboration with various artists among them Chris Searcy’s whose sweet R&B vocals gel with Kanja’s sultry ride on “Weekend”. In “All my Life”, Kanja delivers an upbeat Afro- pop track produced by Silvastone, and “Mesmerized” featuring Kenyan songstress Ida Longomba, a fast-paced club banger where Kanja also enlists Lovy Longomba (formerly of the Longombas).
Speaking on his brand new EP release Kanja says, “Nothing touches an artiste more than the VIBE you give people, and the VIBE you leave someone with. I named my EP VIBES because all the people I’ve met, all the places I’ve been, and all the music I’ve heard left me with a VIBE to share with the world through my music”, revealing “I plan to release a full album soon. I just wanted to give my fans and supporters a project that they can live on and feel while I finish my album.”
The talented artiste is also the executive producer of the EP and worked closely with the legendary hip-hop and R&B producer Chucky Thompson, who has previously produced for the likes of Usher, NAS, P. Diddy, Mary J. Blige, Busta Rhymes, Faith Evans and The Notorious B.I.G, on two of the tracks.
Kanja confirms that he will be hosting an official launch event for the VIBES EP in USA and Kenya soon!
The EP is available on all streams including Tidal, Amazon, iTunes, google play music, Spotify, and apple music.
