If you’re an ohangla fan and more specifically a supporter of the National Super Alliance (NASA), then you’re aware of the song that is slowly but surely taking over the airwaves. It’s appropriately titled ‘Nasa’ and whose content needs no explanation.   

That said, and it being an electioneering season in Kenya, many entrepreneurs are looking to cash in on the campaigns even as politicians seek to sell themselves to the electorate ahead of the General Election scheduled for August 8.

Musicians have not been left behind as new songs are being released left, right and centre, in the hope that politicians especially the presidential ones will get interested and borrow the song for their campaigns.

One such artist is Ben Githae who has gone out of his way to release a politically charged tune. You see, Githae is a gospel singer popular with the kikuyu populace as most of his tunes are in vernacular.

Following in the footsteps of Onyi Jalamo who released the dholuo Nasa anthem, Ben Githae, maybe as requested by the Jubilee Party (which again is highly unlikely considering the party already has a popular tune that plays at events), hit the studio to release ‘Ndani Tena’ which is a Uhuruto campaign song. And my, isn’t the tune quite something?
