Top Marrabenta Star from Mozambique Neyma is in Kenya, courtesy of Coke Studio Africa. Forget about Rabbit, she is the King – ooops Queen, of collabos! Since her arrival, she’s been on a collabo spree, already hitting the studio with King Kaka a.k.a Kenya’s King of Collabos. The two are set to release a new set of songs in mash-up style. Rabbit has also collaborated with international artiste Wyclef Jean and African stars like South African rapper Double HP. Rabbit and Neyma have now mashed up genres from Kenya and Mozambique to create some super cool sound.
Exclusively speaking about the Kenyan-Mozambican collabo, Neyma’s manager Craig Young confirmed that Neyma and Rabbit have worked on two songs together with a “similar style to Coke Studio Africa’s new mash-ups format. Rabbit did his thing in a Neyma track with the Marrabenta style and she jumped on a Rabbit jam.”
The coming together of Neyma and Nigerian female emcee Eva Alordiah, also currently in Kenya (recording the new season of Coke Studio Africa) looks to make an awesome mix.! The two apparently hit it off instantly, spending hours in the studio and even more hours filming a music video shot by Kenyan renown director Enos Olik. Neyma is said to also be eyeing a major collaboration with yet another Nigerian act: Olamide.
