Naiboi’s “2in1” has to be one of the biggest jams so far. Other than being a top shot Kenyan artist, he’s also a cool personality who loves cars, uplifting young Kenyan artists and working hard.
‘The Vault’ is a new entertainment show that will be getting you fired up in a few week’s time and Naiboi was the first guest.
Here are some of the things he talked about during the interview that took place at Nairobi’s GP Karting. Don’t worry, the full feature video will be out and you’ll see how lit he is. Let’s unlock ‘The Vault’.
How did you come up with the name Naiboi?
Initially it was Rapdamu because of my love for rap but then I realized Kenyan stations were playing a lot of Nigerian music. I wanted to change that by representing Kenya and seeing as Nairobi is our capital, I chose Naiboi.
Was it hard getting all those celebrity features in your “2in1” video?
Not really but the challenge was that they have busy schedules and getting in contact with all of them was kinda hard but it worked out.
How did you come up with the video’s concept?
I was watching a video on YouTube by DJ Maphorisa and Nasty C and when the auto-play feature played Red One’s “Don’t You Need Somebody” and it stuck with me. It was a well-done video and I wanted the same for “2in1”.
Are you working on a new album?
Yes. I recently released a compilation of songs I’ve been making and I’m working on more music. I’m just waiting for the perfect time to release an album.
Your thoughts on industry beefs?
They bring hype to the content but I don’t care much about them. If they work for others that’s good.
How are you nurturing young upcoming talent?
I’m one of the few people in the industry who has been working with new acts. From the likes of Only Rosa as well as my producer. I don’t believe in necessarily having to work with big acts because I know I’m good and that’s all I need.
