Kagwe Mungai’s brand new single, ‘Ogopa Mungu’ (fear God) is taking us to church!
Kagwe Mungai and Mr Seed team up for new hit ‘Ogopa Mungu’
Take me to church!
It is the type of song that makes you want to throw down all your worries and lift your hands up, singing and dancing in praise for what the Almighty has seen us through.
This afro-futuristic track features a sweet sounding chorus emblematic of the traditional church choirs and replicating the worship service theme.
Ogopa Mungu is one of the new songs featured in Kagwe's highly anticipated album, ‘Spectrum’.
The Cîroc Brand Ambassador ropes in the vocals of Groove award winner Mr Seed and together they created an electrifying, unexpected song that will very likely top the charts.
The compelling chorus and the lyrics are smart, thoughtful and self-aware. They take you on a personal journey, through their challenges with life in the public eye and also acknowledge that their victories and overcoming their obstacles wouldn’t be possible without help from a higher power.
This rings true throughout Kagwe’s career which he has pursued from a very young age. He has written and produced as well as collaborated with the likes of Blinky Bill, Mayonde, Trina Mungai, Fena and Madtraxx over the years.
Kagwe has amassed a fan base for himself with hits such as ‘24’ and ‘Super Seena’ that have also seen him nominated for awards and have seen him perform both locally and internationally.
This is a perfect example of the dynamism and maturity of the kind of music Kagwe is creating. When asked about his sound, he had this to say, “I’m many things and I don’t like the idea of boxes, they are limiting. As an artist, my aim is to have an impact with my music. For example, if someone had a terrible day or experience and it put them in a better mood or even if they felt understood through the lyrics.”
You need to have this song on repeat because it will do exactly that. ‘Ogopa Mungu’ is out now, make sure you’re not left behind!
