Kenya’s RnB pearl artist Xenia Manasseh has started 2021 on a high, picking up where she left off in her most successful year in music, 2020.
The Lowkey singer is one of very few features on Mr Eazi’s latest EP, ‘Something Else’. Xenia appears on the track ‘Cherry’, where she goes HAM with her dreamy vocal prowess serenading the tropical ballad, cementing her spot as one of the most versatile East African artists out currently.
She shared the news with fans on her Instagram expressing “she is excited” and “speechless” for the blessings. She went further intimating “she has more in store this year”. The Empawa beauty is expected to drop a follow-up EP to her break-out 2019 EP Fallin’ Apart that featured the successful record, ‘See Me’.
Xenia had an amazing 2020 featured on American Teyana Taylor’s album “The Album” that peaked at Billboard Number 1 Hip Hop & RnB albums, she directed the music on Kenya’s Netflix debut film “Sincerely Daisy”, she was involved in the record-breaking Sauti Sol “Midnight Train” album, and curtain-raised for Grammy-nominated rapper Goldlink.
Elsewhere, upcoming designer-turned-singer Doskey aka Suba boy is set to collaborate with Nigeria’s Ketchup and Tanzania’s Matonya in his upcoming album to be released later this year. The University of Nairobi design graduate promises an all-inclusive album as he launched the video to his first single ‘Quarantine.’
“The album is late due to the travel restrictions because of the pandemic, but my management team and I have been in talks with the artistes and we have already started working on the projects. That even inspired the name for my first track in the album,” he said. The talented designer also revealed that he will launch his clothing line alongside his album.
