Singer-songwriter Andrew Wambua is here again with his second release “Mangulet” off his upcoming album. “Mangulet” is the kamba pronunciation for “Margaret”, Wambua’s native language. Mangulet, a new and I dare say fresh and different “afro-house” track with Wambua’s signature, silky, smooth harmonies (produced by Kagwe Mungai) promises to leave you bobbing your head and dancing all the way into the club.
Andrew Wambua dived into the music scene in November of 2008 after forming his band Afrology with whom he has performed far and wide in his hometown Nairobi; his latest performance being the 55th edition of Blankets and Wine.
His first critically acclaimed release “Nipe Pendo” continues to receive massive airplay on Homeboyz radio, Hot96 and the world groove show on Capital fm.
Wambua is inspired by the likes of Freshlyground, Sauti Sol, John Legend, Jessie J, Mafikizolo and Eric Wainaina. He gives of his heart and artistry to the world.

A new star is born, The Songwriter’s Lounge… A place where lyricism is brought to life in song.
Too often the art and skill of lyric writing and developing the written piece into a song has been under valued. The songwriters lounge has come to change all that and to provide an opportunity for musicians who are writers and non-musicians who are enthusiasts to come together and share beautiful moments in a small intimate setting ( 70 pax gig).
This first edition features Singer – Songwriter ANDREW WAMBUA born and raised in Nairobi Kenya. Wambua started his own band, Afrology, in 2008 and has since graced various stages such as Nairobi’s premier event Blankets & Wine, Thursday Night Live at Choices, Penya Nairobi Panda Sauti among others.
He released his first single “Nipe Pendo” mid last year (Get a free mp3 of the single here) and is currently half-way into the recording of his debut album Dreams Come True
