Kenya’s legendary urban soul/r&b singer Didge is back with a new single “Mchezo Mchezo” which features the multi-talented singer and producer Blinky Bill.
The track is a grown-folk funky love tune which speaks about the games in relationships. The song sees the artists declare their affections and how serious their intentions are, on a well crafted beat with incredible drums. The message…No more games. Mchezo is a Swahili word which translates to sport or game in English.
Didge, born Max Nyatome, has been known to keep away from the hype in the Kenyan music industry hype choosing instead to let his music speak for itself’.
