Review (What I Think About the Album)
This album marks one of the first drill albums to be dropped this year in Kenya. This is after Wakadinali released their first drill album “Victims of Madness”. Buruklyn has shown progress after disrupting the Kenyan music industry with their first viral song “Nairobi”. After introducing themselves as Kenyan drill artists, they have taken the genre seriously and are releasing an album that shows career growth.
This is an inspiration to other upcoming Kenyan musicians. It shows that when you believe in yourself, people will start believing in you. I can remember back in 2019 when I transcribed their first song “Durag na Slice” and I posted the lyrics Afrika Lyrics. I also made a lyric video which I posted on YouTube and Instagram.
Ever since I discovered Buruklyn Boyz, I have been their number-one supporter. I have tried transcribing their lyrics so that many people may understand their songs. I feel good music is good music and it needs to be shared.
No Promotion: Burukyn Boyz has also been humble despite the challenges they face. Their songs initially did not get promotion on national TV, radio, or support from other artists. They have struggled their way up chasing the bag. Buruklyn Boyz is very hardworking we can call them dreamchasers.
Inspiration: Buruklyn Boyz has inspired many people with their song “Dream ya Kutoka Kwa Block”. In the song, Ajay says that they had a dream of coming out of the block. And now we can see that the dream is nigh. They are living their best life.
Buruklyn Boyz is going far with their new album it will forever go in history as one of the best albums. Let’s congratulate Buruklyn Boyz for this great milestone.
