The sensational fast-rising Gengetone music stars Sailors Gang have maintained that Mwalimu Rachel has been of great help to their career.

The NRG radio presenter had come under fire from fans of the hitmakers for publishing their music on her YouTube channel. Sailors have since opened their own account and have spoken glowingly about their manager.

“We are the ones who looked for Mwalimu Rachel. She helps us a lot in many ways. About the YouTube channel, we have started our own,” Sailors daid.

Part of Mwalimu Rachel’s help was to see the five-man crew move out of their parents’ houses in the ghetto to the uptown Waiyaki Way.

“There is something called growth. You need to step up. When you are blessed, it should be like that. It just had to happen, parents are okay with it as well.

“We will have a housewarming bash as well and call friends and family,” the Sailors told Word Is this week.

Speaking about their move, Mwalimu Rachel said: “And just like that my sailors finally moved to their new place after searching for months for a place they would be comfy and within budget.

“Yes, late-night shopping and I had to give them a warning hapo kwa liquor section…mimi ni mama still. It’s so weird! They have moved closer to tao, closer to me, but I think the mother in me feels like wametoka kwa watchful eyes of their parents. I have met all their parents. I feel that responsibility.”

The ‘Pekejeng’ hitmakers are preparing for a show on Mashujaa weekend in Nakuru.

“We are performing at the Kenya Cane Mashujaa party, which will be held at Nakuru Athletic Club on Saturday. We love to celebrate mashujaa and we will be there to make the whole place lit.”
