“Awino”, the new track by Kenya’s Rumba Star Johnny Junior continues to dominate the airwaves in Kenya, ranking as one of the most popular songs a week after its release.
Love conquers fans
The music video for the song officially launched last week, is the talk of the town.
“Awino” is an emotionally packed love song Johnny Junior has dedicated to his wife.
The song opens with soothing instrumentation and emotionally charged vocals – carefully observing the traditional Rumba beats and gradually transforms into a fast-tempo song with a densely textured sebene section commonly noticed in soukous hits.
The new song has already hit 108,000 views on YouTube in a week.
Johnny Junior is happy that the song is doing well. “It’s something they had been waiting for, for a long time. The excitement with which they have welcomed the song is beyond my expectation,” the Kenyan Rumba star told AfroNews.
He can’t stop thanking his fans for showing up in huge numbers to witness the virtual official launch of his new video. “I greatly appreciate my fans. They give me courage and motivation to do more and better. I read through their commends and take them seriously,” he said.
