Wakadinali’s “Geri Inengi” is the most-viewed Wakadinali song of all time. The video has more than 6 million views on YouTube. When Wakadinali released their new song “Geri Inengi,” little did they know it would become one of their best songs ever. ‘Geri Inengi” has become one of the best-trending songs in Kenya since 2022. Thanks to Tiktok
In this article, we analyze the real meaning of “Geri Inengi,” how the song went viral, and what the song really means.
What is the meaning of Geri Inengi?
“Geri Inengi” simply means “another gang” or group in Sheng. In the song “Geri Inengi,” Wakadinali had an idea of how another group was invading their area. The group was involved in crime, and Wakadinali artists were the observers. In the music video, we see a Subaru coming, and it’s full of detectives. When the Subaru was approaching, the group, or “Geri Inengi,” in the video started escaping using a motorcycle. That is where the inspiration for Geri Inengi came from.
Domani Munga’s most memorable phrase is “Alikam na kinini kiturrdutu,… ” This part means that they came with a rifle. It is yet another form of art that incorporates sheng into music. The music gives us different ideas, and anyone can have their own meaning based on how they understand the song.
The song is lyrical and Sirbwoy is the observer. He explains how he saw ‘Geri inengi’ approaching and how they were chased by the detectives who also saw them do the act of crime.
‘Umbwa’ by Wakadinali
Sewersydaa’s “Umbwa” verse is the most interesting. The part where Sewersydaa says “Umbwa,” which means “dog” in English, is currently trending on Tiktok. Most fans love that part because it syncs well with the TikTok challenges. Many people doing the challenge are waiting on the part since it sounds unique. Then they deliver the unexpected. It’s all about creativity.
Currently, the ‘Umbwa’ part has more than 17.4 Million views on Tiktok
Which parts of ‘Geri Inengi’ went viral?

The song has two parts that are going viral: one is “Subaru ya Mambaru” from the chorus, which is done by Sirbwoy and Domani Munga, while another is the “Umbwa” part from Sewersydaa. But don’t underestimate Scar Mkadinali, who completes the song with an interesting verse.
