Stella is back, riding a simple and focused reggae beat. The “Who are you” refrain is very much an african thing. Similar to J Hus on pretty much everything. In fact that refrain works on so many levels, paranoia or maintaining social status.

Kenyan Afropop with a tinge of Swahili from these bruhs.
It has been a while since we heard anything new from Kenyan/Scandinavian rapper Stella but boy is she back with a bang. This song does nothing but go for the jugular.
Bam Bam riddim lives on not only in French Montana’s Freaks or Dawn Richard’s Bum Bum but also in Kenyan supergroup P Unit’s new track called You Guy. We have been branching out from out West African roots recently and this song obviously sits great with us. It also stars Africa’s first us style video vixen Vera Sidika, soon to be star of Big Brother Africa. The video although tame by west standards has been banned by certain tv stations in Kenya following on a trend that has been happening in Nigeria as well.
We were going through some East African music and we came across from this track by STL or Stella. Her voice and delivery reminded us of Foxy Brown but in her own spin. Bad As I Wanna Be came out last summer but is still crispy now, especially the start of that 3rd verse.
