The Top 5 feat Nem R: The singing rapper

Have you ever met a young Kenyan musician who can sing soulfully and rap hardcore in the same song?

Then you need to meet Nem R.

We met in April 2022 through a creative business skills training program by HEVA Fund, GIZ, and Goethe Institut. And the rest, as they say, is history.

With 2 EPs, several singles and freestyles out, this fiery female Kenyan rapper from Eldoret is just getting started. She’s already collaborated with Kenyan artists such as Dandora Music, Brian Muok and Kitu Sewer. And has experimented with sounds like boombap, drill, trap, R&B, even Afrobeats.

Tune in to this episode of The Top 5 with LaMusicJunkie to find out:
