    Review

    Yote Yote is a collaboration album between Nina Ogot and her husband the contemporary Benga artist, Winyo.

    The title of the album ‘Yote Yote’ (Everything)  is an accurate reflection of what the two songbirds have experienced in their lives as individuals and as husband and wife. With love songs like Lala Salama (Good night) and Mimi na Wewe (You and I) and Yote Yote, this album will leave you with the nostalgia of falling in love and moving to that lovely new dwelling place where love is limitless.

BIONina Ogot

The Kenyan Afro-Acoustic songbird, Nina Ogot, jump-started her musical career with her soulful debut album dubbed 'Ninairobi' in 2009. Her musical journey has continued to pleasantly unfold with numerous rhythmical surprises which have served to spice-up her upcoming sophomore album with remixed versions of her soulful style of music.

Known to sing in Kiswahili, English, French and Dholuo, Nina’s next album is dedicated to celebrating not only her Luo roots and origins, but also highlights her urban interpretation of her tradition.

First on the sophomore album remix list was the Afro-Pop version of the song 'Wololo', Produced by Indigo Studios (Kenya) and by Claus Seest Management (Denmark). The song which was released in 2011 went on to win two African Video Awards both in Nigeria and Uganda taking both first and second place respectively. WOLOLO has acted as a stepping stone in Nina's career as her fans have embraced her not only as a pianist, guitarist, vocalist, singer and songwriter but also as a versatile musician who has the rare agility and skill to in cooperate tradition and modernity in her musical craft.

Next on the re-mix deck is her Afro-House version of DUOG DALA (Come Back home) and last but not least, her mellow Luo love song AHERI is a ballad that adds great sentimental value to her audiences.

For this Kalasha Award Winner’s next album which is currently a work in progress, a line-up of songs that tell stories about love and life in a new Kenyan way beckons. Songs like, Silly Bird, Aheri, Duog Dala, Wololo, Yuwapi, Tabasamu and many more will certainly tantalise the musical taste buds of her fans.

In the meantime, her latest collaborative album titled ‘Yote Yote’ which was released in December 2014 with her fellow musician and husband Winyo will wow keen listeners with its mix of up-beat and mellow Kenyan vibe.
