Gidi Gidi Maji Maji

Gidi Gidi Maji Maji is a hip hop group from Kenya consisting of two members–Julius Owino and Joseph Oyoo. Their lyrics are mostly written in their native Luo, with some English and Swahili. They incorporate African rhythms and beats in their songs. Their most popular song is “Unbwogable” (“Unbeatable” in Luo) which was used during political elections by Mwai Kibaki, who ended up winning the presidential election. The group have also worked together with members of the community to help youth who are living in slums. They encourage young people to explore their talents and have even made their own entertainment club where kids can come and play music.
