The Death of Gengetone Music

What was named as the redeeming quality for the Kenyan music industry needs a redeeming quality itself. 

"Gengetone kicked the bucket a quiet passing," joked one Twitter client who set the ball rolling and opened up the matter for conversation. We don't wish to be misanthropes, yet let us take apart, dissect, and examine the now notorious sound and see where the elements changed, and the downpour began beating the business. 

Gengetone is a Kenyan class that developed from Genge, the hip bounce sub-type conceived out of California-based Calif Records, which had acts like Nonini and Jua Cali. 

The sub-sort kicked the bucket once its lights quit delivering music. All things considered, by then, Kenya's diversion scene was dispossessed of substance, not ability. We actually had any semblance of grant winning band Sauti Sol, however because of the absence of Kenyan music, we went to Naija and Bongo for diversion.

In any event, every one of the Kenyan customary societies, regardless of the clan, has a legacy of music; from the Taarab of the Coastal individuals to Mugithi of the Agikuyu people group - can we say Gengetone is for Eastlands people group? (joke expected). This classification became an integral factor when the push for #playKe was overflowing on the socials. 

The advancement came very much like Covid and gradually found everybody from each side of the country. Uptown children bounced onto the fleeting trend and what showed up as a hood mindset turned into a public wonder.
