Kenyan rapper/singer Nyashinski has collaborated with American super producer DJ Diplo and Danish singer MØ for Danish lager Tuborg’s music campaign.
Dubbed ‘Stay Open’, the song was mixed and mastered by Kenyan producer Musyoka and fuses Nyashinski’s free flowing style with the rhythm of electronic music, the personal style of Diplo – one third of Major Lazer – and an influence of Kenya’s signature sound.
The original track, which is already being touted to be a club banger as more Kenyans listen and interact with it, was rendered by the Danish rising star MØ in her enchanting voice.
Commenting on the track, Rapper Nyashinski said, “I took the Stay Open theme and flipped it by rhyming about a beautiful woman who I am asking to stay open to my suggestions. Working with DJ Diplo and MØ was also great. It is an opportunity I appreciate getting.”
Musyoka marvels at how Kenyans are now more liberal saying: “This track is all about being open to ideas, cultures and perspectives from all over the world. It shows what Kenya has to offer culturally and musically. I am happy that Tuborg is pushing this philosophy.”
Speaking on the collaboration, Diplo said, “To be part of Tuborg Open for the second year is really cool. Nyashinski and Musyoka brought in their own interesting ideas and perspectives of staying open that made the track amazing and the collabo enjoyable.”
Danish vocalist and songwriter MØ, on her part, expressed excitement about the collaboration process saying: “I love what I have learnt and experienced from working with Nyashinski and I am happy that what we started has now become something totally amazing.”
