A village boy in Kajiado has carved himself a niche as a rapper, whose increasing number of followers can equate to America’s icon rapper, DMX.
In time, Joseph Saningo, 22, carved a niche for himself as a music artist and his colleagues at the Mount Kenya University have declared him as “Kenya’s DMX”.
Saningo, whose music has not been put on video, comes from a humble background and his parents can hardly afford a meal at times.
“It has been a journey for me to reach here. At the university, I registered for a Public Relation and Diplomacy course which requires Sh 24,500 per semester. My parents cannot raise that money,” said Saningo.
He says that while the music runs his blood, he cannot record his music on video so that he can make money to enable him to pay his university fees.
Saningo currently requires Sh 50,000 for recording quality videos, which is set to take place from May 8.
With binding bills in college, Saningo said if he can be assisted to produce his music in videos, he will be able to comfortably sort them out.
Saningo, who has produced the “Pendana” song and placed it on YouTube, is known by his fans as Sannyprince Kenya.
He grew up in Bissil and even enlisted at Crown of Hope Academy before later joining high school.
