Kenya: Rocky Dawuni Hints On Collabo With Juliani, Nameless

Visiting Ghanaian singer Rocky Dawuni may be hitting the studio very soon with Kenyan rapper Juliani and possibly Nameless.

Rocky Dawuni, who performed in a peace concert in Nairobi on Thursday, said he looked forward to future projects with the artistes.

"I met them through Gina Din PR and I even featured Juliani as a preacher in my latest song about Nairobi. Juliani is very easy to work with and always willing to support me whenever he can," Rocky told Word Is.

Rocky, who has toured the US and Europe, reflected on his first visit to Nairobi, saying it was 'love on first sight'. He said this prompted him to record the Nairobi Nakupenda song after learning about the 2007-08 post-election violence.

Rocky has worked with Bono of U2 on a track called War/No More Trouble and has shared the stage with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel, Jason Mraz and K'Naan.

On a lighter note, the singer described the Kenyan girls as "extremely pretty" and that he wouldn't mind settling down with one.
