Bensoul’s Nairobi hit is the talk of the town.
The song details how Nairobi city is one biiiiiiiig bedroom and the culture of Nairobi, per person sharing, has taken over relationships.

Bensoul interacted with our fans and responded to their questions about the hist single, Nairobi.
Asked by fans what inspired the song, Nairobi, Bensoul said,
“THERE IS A FRIEND OF MINE WHO SENT ME MESSAGES ON HOW HE WAS BEING PLAYED BY A LOVER IN BROAD DAYLIGHT. I WROTE THIS SONG AS AN AFFIRMATION THAT HE SHOULD FORGET WE ARE IN NAIROBI. AND THAT IS WHERE THE IDEA CAME FROM.”

“YES I DO, IT IS ALL ABOUT PER PERSON SHARING. HATA MIMI NIMECHEZWA MARA MINGI BUT SUCH IS LIFE.”
