The video also has the talented artiste dancing to the tune with other dancers also depicted having a good time dancing to this amazing upbeat track.

“There was a time the name ‘deadbeat dad’ was used in Nairobi to mean absent fathers. That’s what inspired me to write this song and I have refined the lyrics over time. Noga is a swahili word that would translate to ‘well kneaded”.

“When you’re preparing dough, you use you’re hands to knead the flour. When ready, it has ‘nogad‘. Now, the message here is going out to the dead beat dads. The love I have now is well kneaded. Please leave me alone. Don’t come back after being an absent dad all these years.”

Noga‘ is an aspiring and motivational song for all the women in the world who are also single mothers and have had to manoeuvre being a parent and also finding love by someone who appreciates them and their child.
