8. Niwaze featuring The Mafik.
Even though it origin audio was released in 2018. The song still stands out to be one of her good works as an artist. The sounds like that bad girl vibe of having to like men who have money and good lifestyle. Which in the song she has that good thought of “Let me think about it.”
Having featured The Mafik was giving them more credibility of their talent. As she continues to release songs, it becomes clear she might turn out to be relevant artist.
In 2022 it seemed that Ruby was trying to make a comeback and had to release some of her songs on her YouTube channel. One of the songs that came across to be one of her well done songs was “Sesa” even though it did not get much traction. Sesa is another love song coming from her.
The elements in the song is clearly Lingala, which will make you dance on the floor as soon as you hear it. “Sesa” is good vibe song that I recommend you give it a try.
A song that has good vibes to listen to is this one. To kindly support her listen to Sesa by Ruby herself.
The visuals in this video were really well done. Together with the lyrics which you can easily sing to. “Naolewa” which means “I am getting married” is asong that is highly recommended when it comes to having to plan a wedding or having a wedding event that is soon to happen.
Beats, Elements, the voice and the background sound of the guitar were really well done. Honestly this song has shown that Ruby is really talented and it’s sad to see this song not making the 1 million views mark on YouTube. But in the meantime we can appreciate the talent she has for having to release such a nice song like this.
For those who have weddings, this song should end up in your playlist. To complete in full support of having east African artists grow and stay consistent in their lane.
