I bet you have never seen an Akorino who does Afropop music, Blues and R&B. On that note, allow us to introduce to you one Phil Waweru who is at the moment everyone’s favorite singing sensation.
Phil is a songwriter, a guitarist, and best of all, a hugely talented vocalist.
Everybody is ‘philing’ Phil on social media thanks to a brilliant cover of Ed Sheeran’s worldwide hit pop song ‘Shape of You’.
Phil, backed by the ever amazing AcouSlyk on the acoustic guitar, switched up the hit and brought it back home with a mix of Swahili and Kikuyu.
Audio production is done by Sauti Sol’s Fancy Fingers who adds his magic touch to this amazing cover. Video by VJ One.
The cover is the latest episode of the popular Jamhuri Jam Sessions by Jamhuri Festival held at Nyama Mama.
