Umoja residents might play clueless on who SWAT — the most popular member of rap group Ethic — is, and go ahead to beat him up claiming he’s a thief trying to steal their household items. Uptown guys however, are more than familiar with the crew.
In fact, they love them.
Raila Odinga’s son, Raila Junior, recently confessed his love for the four kids — SWAT, Zilla, Rekless and Seska — who are taking over airwaves, saying they are his favorite group. And, that SWAT tops them all in terms moving him from side-to-side and making him wave his hands like he doesn’t care.
He was speaking in a Radio Jambo interview where he urged them to reach out and see how they can do business.
“Ethic ni maboys wangu. Kwanza nataka kubond na huyo msee, mtoto wa eunice, swat hunibamba. Kwanza hiyo song yao Instagram. I want to meet those guys and even do for them a show somewhere. So swat nitafute, I will do for you guys a show for free,” he said on the interview with Massawe Japanni.
It seems the kids shot their shot and they actually linked up with Junior, who, is not only from the one of the richest families in East Africa but also from of the most influential.
On Instagram,Junior shared a photo chilling with Ethic and captioned it: “In the Shizhouse Ethic Entertainment word. Massive coming out on Thursday.”
That might be a little hard to paraphrase but let’s hope they had a productive meeting, a contract was signed and a lot of $$$ exchanged hands.
