Deno’s first full tape of his career will arrive soon, but first is “Nenkulaba”
Bantu Vibes Pioneer Denesi or as he’s otherwise known among his peers as “Deno” opened the month by dropping a surprise new track in the early hours of October tagged “Nenkulaba”.
The bass-heavy afro-pop record sees the heavy rapper lean into his comfort zone and flow effortlessly as he croons in both Luganda, some Langwe, and English languages.
“Nenkulaba” is a hard-hitting track that sounds like it was tailor-made for live performances given we know how much energy Denesi brings to the stage whenever he performs.
Fans and friends can expect to see and hear as the singer-songwriter says that this is a taste of bigger things to come, and by this he means a whole album that is in its final stages of being recorded and mastered.
Denesi hasn’t released any solo projects since as he has teamed up with industry friends Lagum the Rapper on “Tuliwano”, “Pressure”, “Tusimbule KLA Party”, and past anthems including “TIP” alongside John Blaq, Chenkobe & Kohen Jaycee.
“Nenkulaba” serves as the lead single from his very first album “I am Here” which is expected to drop not so long from now and it will explore the theme of mental freedom through presence and encourage people to be present, enjoy the moment and not be stuck in loops of the past.
