The Kenyan music industry is experiencing immense growth and revolution that has seen its market expand beyond its borders.
There are loads of up-and-coming artists to get excited about, and The Kenya Times picked out one that we would recommend you pay attention to over the next few years.
Meet Secretlyjuly, a new rising Afro-pop and Afro-swing songstress who has just made her musical debut in 2022 with her first single dubbed “July”.
The Kenya Times understands ”July” is now out on all streaming platforms and has received a warm welcome from music lovers across the globe.
The Kenyan-born, multi-talented abstract artist, radio host, business developer, content creator, fashion enthusiast, singer, and songwriter’s new single is clearly a fans’ favorite because of its unrivaled musical richness.
Secretlyjuly’s brand is centered around her being herself making her swag and brand feel authentic to her fans.
She’s magnetic, sensual, and rebellious chic with an ever-eccentric and alluring personality, ready to take over the world with her music.
“July is a feel-good confident single. When working on this project I was at one of my lowest points and needed to write something that would boost my confidence. July came to be as a manifestation song to always feel good about oneself and believe in one’s magic. I wrote it to feel encouraged and good about July, myself. I needed a tune people could listen to and want to hype themselves in that manner. Remember that confidence comes from within. July is also an introduction single. I wanted people to hear July and be introduced to my world of class and rave through my feel-good lyrics. An Afro-pop song was then born”. She explains.
The feel-good confident song is a fusion of Afro Pop and R&B, and Secretlyjuly does the tune some justice with her sonorous vocals and proves that she is set to take over the Music World.
