“Trio leo mbele zako
Mtaani brikicho na landlord
Leo ametutingia padlock
Rent ya kama mwezi tano
Tangu ancheki kwa Mpasho na-
aniskie kwa radio Jambo..
hacheki vile tuna struggle..”
In the song, the high school student who will be reporting back to school in less than two weeks also speaks about balancing education and his music career.
Even though he says he has been singing since he was 15, Trio Mio became a sensation in 2020 during the long school holiday courtesy of COVID-19 after releasing songs like ‘cheza kama wewe’.
