With two well-performing hit singles to their name, Kenya’s newest all-girl group Band Beca are not resting on their laurels and are dreaming big.
The group, consisting of Becky Sangolo and Carol Kamweru are riding high on the hits ‘Toka’ and ‘Brathe.’
They spoke to Chillax about the inspiration behind the hits and their future plans.
What was the inspiration behind the song Toka? – The song Toka was co-written by Bensoul, Mordecai “Dex” and us. The song is basically a woman empowerment song and is a wake up call to the ladies that if you are not happy in a relationship there is no need of staying, just leave.
What about Brathe? – The song was also written by Bensoul, and Mordecai “Dex”. We told them what we wanted and they came up with the song. It is more about girls just having fun and not being disturbed by men whenever they go out.
What are the five things that you would want to do in the future? – Perform at Coke Studio, do a show in New York, live together, do a collabo with Tiwa Savage and Beyonce, and inspire young girls.
What advice would you give to young girls who look up to you? – To fulfill all your dreams and if want to do music give all your best. Put 100 percent to it, go for vocal classes, invest in it and make sure you have a team behind you who can support and guide you. Talent is 10 percent and 90 percent is the hard work. You can be talented but if you are lazy then nothing will work for you.
