The Top 5 feat Kuiyu: The In Betweener

Kuiyu Kenyan musician

“Oozing with Life, the Flawa boy brings to African creativity a fresh wind of Self love & awareness, authentic expression & genuine spectrum representation. His work resonates with a vulnerable essence, bold styling and dare some execution. Exploring romanticism, identity and orientations, spirituality and the emancipation of the African mind.” – Music in Africa
