Bad Manners star K4 Kanali is undoubtedly one of the hottest Kenyan artists out right now, and it looks like he might be going international.
Acclaimed Los Angeles rapper The Game reached out to Kanali seeking to have him feature on an upcoming project dubbed ‘Rules of the Game’.
This was after, in October 2020, Game asked fans online which unsigned artists were making the most noise in their city, only for Kanali’s ardent fanbase to flock his comment section.
“I got this project I’m presenting. I’m down to push your sound on this series I’m dropping called Rules of the Game,” wrote Game in a message to Kanali seen by Loud.co.ke.
Kanali revealed that while nothing had yet been confirmed, he looked forward to showcasing his skills on global stages and working with various artists including The Game.
Kanali has under his belt several hits including Bad Manners, Katambe, Sawa, Patia, 2 by 2, Tight and Tifn and Chubuwi Chubuwa.
He had a monster 2020, coining the phrase “Tuko Sherehe na Haitaki Hasira” on Bad Manners alongside Fatboy Gwash and Joseph Hill of Team Psycho.
The phrase went viral and birthed an online challenge with millions of views on Tik Tok.
Kanali, known for his unique hooks and smooth flows, looks set to have an even bigger 2021.
Kanali is also set to feature on a new song alongside Gwash and veteran hitmaker and new king of collabos Mejja.
