Three months after the release of ‘Hapa Kazi’, Kenyan rap star Mak Mansa is back with news of a sequel and the project’s lead single, “So Fly”.
The video narrates how a night out turns dramatic as Mansa ends up having a sexual encounter with a lady who happens to head an organization that Mansa needs to make a deal to since he is one who has an unfailing ability with the ladies and never fails to make them swoon.
Born and bred in Kinangop in Nyandarua County, Mak Mansa’s story is that of perseverance, persistence, and that of sheer hard work and hustle which will probably get the attention of his Hip Hop peers in the game. Mansa’s musical journey can be summed up in two words, ‘Brutal Ambition.
With Jay Z being one of the few industry players he looks up to his stage name comes with no surprise as it is derived from the great Mansa Musa I of Mali. He wants the greatness, but he is very self-aware to know that it takes a certain level of tenacity to be one of the greats and he’s ready for the journey.
Versatility can be said to be his other name since he is ready to experiment with beats unlike many rapper s whose, flows, wit and sounds become monotonous with each new day. His new single , “So Fly” is the bulls eye in a flirtatious point of view.
“So Fly” is an ironic attempt to underscore all these factors, seeing that Mansa does not even indulge in some of the things he is talking about! And as he makes it clear in verse 3, all you need to be fly in this life is yourself.
