Rising star Trevor Fortel – I want to inspire people through my song, ‘Energy’

Kenyan hip-hop star Trevor Fortel has released his highly anticipated new single, “Energy,” a powerful anthem narrating his journey in music.

Directed by Kash Ndungu and produced by the talented Nzau, “Energy” promises to captivate listeners with its themes of resilience and self-empowerment.

Speaking about the song, Trevor told Nairobi News:

“With ‘Energy,’ I wanted to create a track that embodies the power of resilience and self-empowerment. This song and its music video are about overcoming obstacles and reclaiming your strength to forge your own path. I hope ‘Energy’ inspires everyone to rise above their challenges and embrace their inner power.”

“Energy” is a compelling narrative of Trevor’s path to overcoming obstacles and claiming his rightful place as a king in his own right.

The music video vividly depicts Trevor’s struggle to reclaim his “energy” by seizing a crown from a dependent king and forging his path.

This visual metaphor speaks to the universal experience of facing challenges and emerging stronger.

The song was released on May 24.
