Since it’s a festive season, we have the location pin for every corner where partying matters, and this time around, we’re analyzing gospel songs right inside bars and entertainment joints of Nairobi.

Shall we?

Uninyunyizie maji

Straight from Our Lady of Fatima Kongowea Catholic Choir, Uninyunyizie maji has marked it’s rightful territory in all entertainment joints in Nairobi and it slaps differently after midnight.

Revellers of all walk all rise to the tune as they sing in what would easily confuse you with an early morning Catholic mass.

The ululation in this song literally raises spirits.

Mkono wa bwana

For some reason, revellers 'receive salvation' and start counting their blessings in nightclubs at the stroke of this 6-year-old song which was done by Zablon Singers.

You can easily mistake such occasions to a choir performance as everyone goes down while religiously singing chini chini chini chini in unison.

Everyone seems to be seeing Mkono wa bwana as they praise the Lord in what is a sure affirmation that indeed, Zablon Singers have succeeded in blessing revellers in entertainment joints.

I know who I am

This gospel hit by Sinach gives drunken peeps in clubs, full confidence to let them believe that whatever their state, they are the chosen generation.

They use the song which was released 7 years ago to believe that they are always in control of their lives in whatever state. That there’s no room for anyone to judge them. But should we judge, no?

Sweetie sweetie

Two years ago, Zablon Singers composed this song for lovers and it was meant for wedding occasions. There’s no doubt it served it’s purpose but for some reasons, Sweetie sweetie is a club banger.

Get the experience!


Everything you put your hand (Go work). Your name go open doors (Amen)
You sef go be a boss. (Amen, amen, amen)
Everything you put your hand (Go work). Your Name go open doors (amen)
You sef go be a boss. (Amen, amen, amen).

If you’re reading this article, you already understand what I’m talking about. All the way from Nigeria, done by Timi Dakolo, meant for the Church, but a huge anthem in bars. God’s doing, maan!

Amen, amen, amen…

Kuna dawa

Esther Wahome might not know, but it’s true that the spiritual medicine she was preaching is actually healing the children of God, deep inside nightclubs.

After one for the road, Wahome’s dawa is curing the revelers bila malipo.

I believe

This is another one from Jonathan Nelson. 7 years later, it’s ruling Nairobi pubs where everyone trusts, and believes in Jehovah.

Ben Githae’s Maya ni mabarato and Ruth Wamuyu’s Amukira ngatho are also big tunes in our nightclubs.
