You might already know the Kenyan “urban folk” artist Kwame from his amazing track “Malkia”, producer by his fellow countryman Waithaka. Now he’s back with another soulful song, “Reke Ngwende”.

This time he collaborated with a young producer Festus from Sierra Leone. In “Reke Ngwende” (“Let Me Love You”), Kwame shares the tale of his first love, “simple and Silly”, when “everything was beautiful,” he wrote.

As far as we know she said “yes”, so no wonder the new new video – directed by Davy Barbz – suggests the memories remain bright.
