Legendary Kenyan musician David Mathenge, aka Nameless has teamed up with rising star Trio Mio, Nelly the Goon, Dmore and Habib to release a special tribute song to the late Isah Mmari aka E-sir.

The tune dubbed, Bandana Ya E-Sir, features artistes from across the generations for whom E-sir was an icon and an inspiration. He passed away in 2003 at age 21.

According to the visionaries behind Bandana Ya E-sir, the aim was to introduce his legacy to the younger generation; hence the line up of younger acts under the guidance of the veterans who knew him. It's also been symbolic that E-sir would be turning 40.

The project also goes toward helping E-sir's family benefit financially from the goodwill that the brand E-sir and his music still receives.
