Kenya's Sauti Sol.

Whatever you do, don't let Keko go! Under the Sony Record label, the tall young Ugandan rapper with attitude has dropped her latest track AND video in a quirky love song.

With beats that are distinctly East African and a mix of song and rap, Keko presents (don't) 'Let Me Go'.

In the song, she spreads love and cheer as she makes promises of happiness, no doubt emanating from a similar feeling within (unconfirmed).

Catchy, feel good and very captivating is the video, according to Capital Lifestyle. What do you think?

Still on love, Kenyan band Sauti Sol are trying to figure out whether this lady 'loves him or loves him not' in their latest single Money Lover.

Sung in the style of Zouk, Sauti Sol's clear vocals edge over the guitar in this new track, produced by the talented R Kay.

R Kay was responsible for their award winning tie-up with P-Unit, Gentleman, which has a Kisima Award in its closet.

"Do you love me baby? Do you love my money?" they ask. Have a listen and tell Capital Lifestyle if you love them; if you will cry in a Range Rover or laugh on a boda boda...

Far from these is yet another single by the Penya Africa label, this time in collaboration with Tanzania's Caravan Records.

Mzungu Kichaa teams up with Kenyan girl Dela (of the amazing voice) for the hard hitting track "African Hustle", giving East Africa the message that success cannot survive on luck alone.

The song will be featured in Mzungu Kichaa's upcoming album, Hustle, which will be released on December 1, more than 3 years since his last one.

The Mzungu is happy to sing with Dela, whom he describes as one of his favourite artists. The duo is recording a video for the song in Nairobi, where Mzungu Kichaa came to perform at the latest edition of Blankets and Wine.
