Muigai Wa Njoroge’s new song calls for equitable land subdivision in Kenya

Popular Kikuyu musician Muigai Wa Njoroge and his counterpart Nebster Muhiko have released a new song titled “Keki Ni Icikio” (Cake Should Be Taken Back), which calls for the equitable subdivision of land in Kenya.

The song’s visuals feature agricultural farms, livestock animals, slums, and palatial suburbs, highlighting the country’s land distribution disparity.

The artists indirectly accuse the dynasties of grabbing the country’s tracts of land, which should have been distributed equally among all Kenyans.

The 5-minute and 28-second hit questions the historical injustices in land demarcation, with the artists warning that the division between the rich and the poor will continue to grow deeper if these issues are not addressed.

Muigai Wa Njoroge sings, “Keki ni Icikio metha ini, igayanuo rigi,” saying, “The cake should be put back on the table for subdivision.”

The song asks why farm owners rarely respect farm workers, with the response being that they are the children of cheetahs.

Muigai Wa Njoroge insists that Kenya belongs to God and that all its citizens are entitled to equal sharing.

He warns that if the historical land injustices and corruption are not addressed, the country’s furrow between the rich and the poor will continue to deepen.

“Our country is not a forest belonging to a husband and a wife,” he reiterates.

The new song, released on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, has gained massive following across the country, especially in the wake of the recent invasion of former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s farm.

On Monday, March 27, 2023, a group of goons invaded the farm, stealing sheep and cutting down trees at Ruiru, Thika Road-based farm.

The invasion happened in tandem with Azimio’s protests, with citizens demanding the equitable distribution of resources and an end to corruption.

Muigai Wa Njoroge’s new song has sparked a conversation on equitable land distribution in Kenya, with many calling for action from the government.

The country’s land laws have been a contentious issue for years, with land grabbing and historical injustices being major problems.

The song’s message resonates with many Kenyans who have been affected by these issues.
