One of Kenya’s baddest femcees and AFRIMMA 2019 nominee Fena Gitu will release her sophomore album UNLEASHED on 23rd Nov 2019 at the Junction Mall (Silo parking rooftop) from 6 PM at an event dubbed #FenaUnleashed.
Fena’s anticipated new album coincides with her celebration of a decade in the music and entertainment industry. She has launched a series of celebratory events and projects dubbed #FenaAt10.
At the album launch concert #FenaUnleashed, Fena will be backed by the Dynamiques Band. The concert will feature performances by a medley of guest artists among them Kagwe Mungai, Mayonde, Charisma, Elani among others.
Kwambox will be the event’s host while Jo Kisila will man the decks. As of what to expect, Fena says, “The album launch concert will be nothing short of high energy entertainment, with lots of love and celebration of 10 years in the industry with the Fenatics community and the public at large. Can’t wait to see you all.”
Speaking on the new album, Fena says, “This project represents my coming of age as Fena. I realized that I needed to explore corners in my life that I was previously shy/coy about to make more timeless music.” She added: “With a fresh boost of confidence and years of experience in the music industry, I took on the challenge to become one of Africa’s most sought after singer/songwriters.”
UNLEASHED album embodies a transformation of Fena’s persona, style and sound. In the album, Fena tackles themes of love, ambition, women empowerment and leadership while encompassing Nairobi’s vibrant lifestyle.
Fena works with top producers on the 15-track album among them: Kanyeria, iLogos Music, Jazz Odongo, Mutoriah, Dillie and Magix Enga. The album features tracks such as “Monday Blues”, “Siri”, “Zing Zong”, “Trouble”, “Karibia” which capture Fena’s softer, lovey-dovey side.
Whereas “Doing Her Thing Though”, “Chai Moto”, “Unleashed”, “Ndigithia” and “Empress” express a go-getter, unapologetic Fena. Her hit singles “Steam”, “Sijaskia Vibaya”, “Sema Ng’we” and “Kaende” take us to the lit Nairobi scene where anything goes.
Having taken a brief hiatus in 2015/2016 to reevaluate and re-strategize following the niche success of her debut album “Fenamenon”, Fena made a comeback into the music scene in 2017 with a crossover hit single, “Sema Ng’we”, marking the beginning of her “UNLEASHED” journey. Today, Fena is hailed as East Africa’s most sought after female music performers and brand influencers.
