The Addvoket

Posted by root On April - 20 - 2010


Name: The Addvoket
Album: The World Is Black And White But Love Is Grey (2009)
Genre: Hip-hop (Rap)
Launch date: ….2010
Studio: Sauti Media Productions

A couple of tracks you can listen to from his Album:

1. Priceless rap (Shine FM Commercial Break Freestyle)
2. Nairobi (Teaser)
3. Not my place (Mlevi.com Bonus)

The Addvoket is a topical Hip-hop/Rap artist based in Nairobi, Kenya. He was born and raised in Malawi. He has been severally titled the new generation sound of Kenyan Hip-hop/Rap because of his great delivery, catchy lyrics and diverse concepts and sound.

He has currently compiled his debut album titled “…Love is Grey” (The World Is Black And White but Love is Grey) and in the process of shooting videos to â??Greyâ? ft. Molline and â??Am A Kingâ? ft. Pepe Haze (who played Tye in MTV’s Sugar). Plans are already under way to have an album launch later this year (2010).

The album titled “…Love is Grey” is metaphorical of the extremes in the world which are represented by the extremes white and black colours. He uses this platform to discuss issues on race as in the song “Grey” ft. Molline and “Blame it on Hip hop” where he questions, “How can we have 3 different worlds in 1 single sphere?” Track 1 “In Look Around,” he tackles life issues, slam dwelling, moral decay, and eagerness of Africans to ape Western mannerisms without mentally reasoning. He also raps to the media and society saying questioning them how talents/artists with no care of how their gifts impact children get airplay while artists with message are locked out by rapping: “(situations may) make a blind man regret having his vision back/like when you turn on the TV/ just flip the channel (you are) guaranteed not to see me/you’ll some girl busy shaking her booty/or in a block buster having sex in a movie/and yup, she getting an Oscarâ?¦ academy award all because she dropped her/ panties, then lifted her shirt/and the media is happy cause they selling us dirt.” He collaborates with Pepe Haze on Track 7: “Am a King” to promote African self-pride, goodness and self esteem underlining the message God exists and is an option that many overlook for the society to replenish. Am a King clearly displays freshly new talent as all beats are percussioned by mouth! In this album debut, he throws something in for everybody: “How Bout Your Love” for the ladies, “The Journey” for underground hip-hop heads, “Nairobi” for Crankers, “2 Step Program” for the Bass Nerds &”Auto-tune” and “the outro” where he summarizes the album with a funny message for people who just want to laugh cause celebrities take themselves too seriously.Clearly displaying craft and genius as he doesn’t get swallowed trying the different styles of Hip-hop.

As we listen to the album, itâ??s clear The Addvoket isn’t about gaining recognition. He has mastered his diction and out to make a difference for Africa and the world in total by calling for Love between people, races, religions, family, leaders and importantly oneself  (Black + White= Grey (which is Love)) with his unmatched skill.

Not supporting/buying/promoting this album will leave the industry suffocating of unrealistic rappers who’ve totally put-off Kenyans.

Its time to see new talent and local music progress. I propose a new standard of Good sound music and it starts with The Addvoket’s album â??The World Is Black And White but Love is Grey.â?

Most definetly this is an album to listen to.I just couldnt stop putting this tracks on repeat.Support Local talent people.
