Kumuok- Most popular Sheng words 2020 and their meanings

 Sheng is gradually taking over and its usage rampantly accepted not only the young but also older generation and corporate world.

The Kenyan sheng culture is dynamic; it changes into new forms with time. They say slang is the language of the youth; it speaks for them, through them and they use it to hide meanings of words. Sheng has been adapted and embraced by pop culture, hence the instant rise of the Gengetone genre. Gengetone brought new and fresh young artists who came with new Sheng phrases. The genre caused a Sheng revolution, something that had not happened since back in the day when Genge -with artists such as Juacali, Jimwat and Nonini- was the main ‘Sheng genre’.
