KITU!! The thing can also be read as Ki2, a new entry into 1key’s musical and poetic diary that began with Ki (album, 2023). KITU is alchemym literally poetry in motion. It’s the transformation of casual jam sessions into a full body of work that narrates the tales of an East African storyteller moving between Africa and Europe. Kitu is at most the translation of 1key’s emotions, perceptions and experiences into poetry and rap laid on a tapestry of sonic vibrations designed by Alyt MX. As the journey continues, 1key opens the door to more stories from fellow East African artists who are equally passionate about their craft. On Warrior with Dreaded Warrior, 1key faces the mirror and invites the listener to dive in with him. "Every time I write/ride I let you inside my mind, my heart and soul" -1key While 1key takes a political stance on LISTEN | SILENT featuring Osee Elektra from Congo, about the silence of the world regarding the genocides in Palestine and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, he also shows his romantic side on ExponentieL as he narrates his love story with a crush he met in Brussels and pursued in Paris. And what to say about the EAST AF? So many quotables from artists on this track hailing from Burundi, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania. To get you in a dancing mood, there is SAVING GRACE. Beautiful melodies and storytelling panning between traditional Kinyarwanda and poetry in English. Overall Kitu is a journey towards becoming the best version of self. And like 1key asks on Music & Poetry, are you ready for KITU?
