Muthoni Drummer Queen embodies 2018’s Afropop Queen – an out of the box thinker and entrepreneur, witnessed by how she chose to release her 3rd studio album on March 2nd. Through a full day radio concert broadcast live on Homeboyz Radio (something never done before in the country), and capping it off with a TV interview late in the night on the same day. If that is not putting in hard work, I don’t know what is.

If there is new ground to be broken musically, she is that girl. Boundaries for who? Her body of work is genius, a breath of fresh air for the airwaves. She ventures into new spaces and genres while remaining catchy and radio friendly.

The album has a lot of replay value with damn near all the songs being irresistible. Suzie Noma, the lead single, was an indication of the gems we were to discover in the album. The poetic interlude that is Dear Mathilde is a work of art, something all goddesses must hear. The soulful songstress gets daring in Lover as she tells the story of an unapologetic Kenyan transgender. She then switches to funk and retro soul in No More. And just when you think she couldn’t possibly have any other cards up her sleeve, you are rudely surprised by the reggae-ton Island vibes and her Swahili rapping in Criminal. You are doing a grave injustice if you haven’t copped yourself a listen to the album

I was a mere fan before but I am definitely a full blown stan now. What’s the name of her hive anybody?
