MUSIC REVIEW: Rasukha murwe by TheCBK
The Creative Band Kenya popularly known as “The CBK” are fighting for their space among Kenya’s top boys bands. After releasing “Siro” which was well received in the industry, the Kisumu based boys went back to the studio and this time round they come back with another hit – Rasukha Murwe.
Well laid vocals and a great beat. This song will definitely be a hit among Luo and Lhuyia speakers as you can hear them play around with popular phrases from the two communities. The song is done in Luo, Swahili, English with a few drops of Lhuyiah dialects here and there.
The video is a masterpiece by Enos Olik and was almost entirely shot in Kisumu. The story in the video revolves around three guys who try to outdo each other to impress a beautiful lady who has driven all of them crazy.
This pretty lady from a friends working place has literally made The CBK to Go Crazy, “Rasukha Murwe”. They go to an extent of faking their status to the best of an individuals capability just to impress the angel, only for her to realize that she was the game being played.
I have a feeling that the video concept slightly borrowed from Nikikutazama by H_art the band.
Verdict: Great song which could just become a hit.
