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.
