Popular Congolese Rhumba Artiste Endorses Raila Joins Him In His Campaign Tour

Mbilia Bel, a legendary Congolese songbird known for her singles Nakei Nairobi, Nadina, and Esyo Wapi, joined Raila on his central Kenya campaign tour on Tuesday.

Mbilia, a household name among Rhumba aficionados, entertained crowds during the Azimio la Umoja leader's campaigns, singing her signature tune Nakei Nairobi, replacing some lyrics of the song with Mr. Odinga's name.

Nakei Nairobi, released in 2010, is a song about a friend who left Kinshasa for Nairobi in search of greener pastures. 

According to ODM Communications Director Philip Etale, Mbilia participated in the rally to perform her well-known hit Nakei Nairobi and express her support for Raila Odinga.

However, several Kenyans dismissed Mbilia's purported endorsement, arguing, sarcastically, that even if the presidential contender brings all the Congolese musicians, he will not win the August elections.

Another online user stated that Ruto is pressuring the Azimio crew until they have decided to bring in artists from Congo.
