Alaine goes all Kenyan with new ‘Wafula’ hit

Jamaican songstress Alaine Laughton on Sunday launched her Kenyan hit ‘Wafula.’

The singer, who conceived the idea while on Churchill Show, chose to collabo with the comedian.

The new hit gives Kenyans a taste of comedian Dan Ndambuki rapping skills.

The song’s video was shot in the heart of western Kenya, where the name Wafula is commonly used among the Bukusu, and showcased the region’s tourism sites and cultural activities like bull fighting.

The song was directed and shot by a Kenyan production team. It only features four foreign casts as Alaine’s friends who join her in the search for Wafula.

The idea for the song was conceived when the Jamaican singer, while being interviewed on Churchill Show in 2014, the host joked that she should freestyle on a peculiar Kenyan man called Wafula.

Alaine then sang a freestyle on Wafula which totally excited her fans.

Early this year the singer decided to actualize the freestyle and together with Churchill they shot the video.
