Christmas has come early this year!
3 of the 5-tracks of the EP feature collaboration. Chris Searcy’s sweet R&B vocals gel with Kanja’s sultry ride on “Weekend”. In “All my Life”, Kanja delivers an upbeat afro pop track produced by Silvastone. “Mesmerized” featuring Kenyan songstress Ida Longomba is a fast paced club banger where Kanja also enlists Lovy Longomba (formerly of the Longombas): one of Kenya’s pioneer urban artiste turned super producer. Other tracks that make up “VIBES” EP include: “Royal Family” and “Cathy” produced by Willbeatz and Chucky Thompson, respectively.
Speaking on his brand new EP release Kanja says, “Nothing touches an artiste more than the VIBE you give people, and the VIBE you leave someone with. I named my EP VIBES because all the people I’ve met, all the places I’ve been, and all the music I’ve heard left me with a VIBE to share with the world through my music”, revealing “I plan to release a full album soon. I just wanted to give my fans and supporters a project that they can live on and feel while I finish my album.” Kanja confirms that he will be hosting an official launch event for the VIBES EP in USA and Kenya soon!
Kanja is also the executive producer of “VIBES” EP in which he worked closely with the legendary hip hop and R&B producer Chucky Thompson, who has previously produced for the likes of Usher, NAS, P. Diddy, Mary J. Blige, Busta Rhymes, Faith Evans and The Notorious B.I.G. Chucky has produced 2 of the 5 songs on the VIBES EP.
Off the 5 tracks, Kanja has already released the videos of two of his smash singles “Cathy” and “Weekend” and is working on the new video for his afrobeat smash hit “Royal Family” produced by US based Cameroonian producer WILL BEATZ. The video is set to be shot in DC, Maryland, and Virginia and will be directed by one of the biggest directors in the U.S right now, and Kanja’s former mentor Shomi Patwary.
