The Top 5 feat Nafsi Huru: The Swahili hiphop ambassador

Nafsi Huru Uhuru wa Nafsi Kenyan hiphop

What happens when two Kenyan music journalists meet? Well they have an amazing conversation about Kenyan music!

I first met Nafsi Huru through Roysambu Culture Fest back in May 2022. After the Swahili hiphop ambassador performed at this one-of-a-kind show, he asked to interview me. And I obliged!

Months later, I returned the favour. And hosted him on The Top 5 with LaMusicJunkie podcast, after listening to his debut hip hop album Uhuru Wa Nafsi. Which features Swahili music legends such as Kaa La Moto and Juma Tutu. It just so happens to be one of my top Kenyan albums of 2022!

Listen to this fun episode to find out

  • How he got his name Nafsi Huru
  • Why it took him 10 years to release his debut album
  • How he started working with Kaa La Moto
  • What he learnt from Juma Tutu
  • His favourite Kenyan rappers

And so much more!
