Revival Concert finally happened as with the hype it received it did meet many people’s expectations. Ivory pub was filled to capacity,the sound was good so as was the dj [dj ken]. Artistes performances were way overboard, its hard to believe such an event was taking place in Mombasa.
For a 1st concert with others to follow just shows how dancehall and hiphop music/artistes can pull such a crowd and how unfortunate industry players in Mombasa ignore these two genres and opt to support bongo like or how it’s commonly refered as “bana pua”.Second Revival concert will happen very soon with event organisers Ultimate HipHop Experience/ Ian Vedette promising more action and fun.
Sources tell TMZ that it happened in Studio City at
approximately 1:45 a.m. The Compton rapper was shot three
times in the hip.
In a report by the Los Angeles Daily News , Los Angeles police
Sgt. Ernie Fisher found shell casings and blood at the scene
of the crime. Fisher and police have not found a suspect yet.
Fisher says that YG was “very uncooperative” with police and
refused to offer any information on the suspect or who drove
him to the hospital.

After launching the video on youtube on Monday, which din’t get much hype compared to Hidaya which he featrured Chikuze. Susumila went ahead to officially launch it at K1 club house with Mambo mseto’s Tuva. The video was directed by Ricky Bekko the same guy who directed Hidaya. At a scale if 10 i rank it at 8.5 but maybe he needs to reconcile with TK2 since we expected more after releasing Hidaya. The song was produced at Green House is former stable before he left for Hornet Records.
