NU Playlists: 10 Eric Wainaina Songs By Ronjey Rocks


Eric Wainaina is about to supply his 4th studio album and we’re not the only ones excited. Eric if you didn’t know, is the guy who wrote the 2nd National Anthem.

An alumni of Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he graduated with honours in music, majoring in song writing and record engineering, the Selina Kenya and Nchi ya Kitu Kidogo hitmaker started his music career as part of boyband “Five Alive”, a male acapella band that launched back in 1996.

So to guss you up and moreso pay homage to this legend, Ronjey Rocks throws in the first Eric playlist on our Soundcloud followed by you. In the mean time check out the event details ahead of the launch concert this Friday at The Elephant.

Asked why he likes Eric, “We used to follow Eric Wainaina on TV and weekend inserts. I think i related with him because of the music and also because he looked so ordinary, like the rest of us those days. Then one day we just ran into him in Upper Hill. My bro and i tripped balls-we ran home to tell anyone who cared.”
