The self-proclaimed ‘Africa’s Afrorap Magician’ loves Anita Nderu for her significant role in his music career.
Vicmass Luodollar took the country by storm in 2016 with his unique and braggadocio Luo rap flow in the remix of ‘Bank Otuch’ featuring Octopizzo. He has gone on to establish himself as one of Kenya’s most promising rappers after beating almost all odds from a life of hawking in the streets of Kisumu.
And in his arduous journey to the top, Vicmass Luodollar acknowledges he has received a helping hand from a number of media personalities, key among them being Anita Nderu.
According to Vicmass, the Capital FM presenter and panelist on NTV’s TTTT was the first media player to put him on television. This was during Anita Nderu’s television hosting gig on NTV’s ‘Teen Republik’.
Taking to social media on Throwback Thursday, Vicmass shared a picture of his meet up with Anita Nderu and poured his heart out, revealing how she even paid for his fare back home.
