Congrats to RP Mbaula, who recently partnered up with Voice of Maasai indie label, as he is a nominee for the 2019 Maa Awards Best Secular Artist.
Adored by many, styling himself as a Maasai Rapper, RP Mbaula is largely influenced by the work of the late Mr Ebbo, Professor Jay and Mr II. In 2014 he released an album called Maitadoi Enauri (Let us Relax) which featured 8 songs, Matolikinoto, Kitii Tenebo and others. The album was well received and loved by many due to strong messages about life, culture and challenges across Maasailand.
The independent energy of RP Mbaula caught the attention of Voice of Maasai Founder Jessey Jansen after the release of Nitai Eembe Koko (Drop the Razor Blade Old Lady) music video created in partner with an organization out of the UK for an anti-FGM campaign. Shortly thereafter, a colleague of RP Mbaula proactively approached VOM eager to introduce more of RP's work to a label with shared sensibilities.
Maa Awards is a premier Maa exclusive event that is designed to recognize achievements by honoring outstanding individuals, groups, organizations and businesses of the greater Maa Community for excellence in their chosen fields and contribution to the empowerment and development of Maa region in Kenya and Tanzania.
