“Salsa” is a song that has that happens to flow with Latin America sound and instrument which truly can make you Salsa on the floor. By think of it, I think it is a very pretty smart move coming from Ssaru herself of coming out with a track to mix Swahili with Latin American sound.
“Niko ready” having been behind the meaning of the song, is a good song that could get you dancing with a partner or your lover. Having Cedo come up and produce an incredible song with this one.
This just shows how creative Ssaru can be in having to try different genres of music. If you feel like salsa with Swahili word in it, this is it to get you dancing.

Ssaru and Charisma acme together exploring one of the genres we have in Africa and that is Rhumba. ” Rhumba ya Ssaru” is a song about the girl going back to his old lost contact lover having been that it has been a long time they saw each other, Ssaru having to express in her rap in the beginning contacting him that soon she is coming.
The instruments and beats in the music are just magical, for who are familiar with Rhumba would likely enjoy this more. Having that Ssaru trying out Rhumba is a show of having to be creative and see the outcome
And the outcome of this song came out well done song. Even though it may have an equivalent of over 200 thousand vies on YouTube, we still think it deserves more. If you are a good fan of Rhumba, this one can excite you.
9. Nimerudi tena
Nimerudi tena which means ” Am back again” is one of Ssaru’s most fiery free style songs in existence. Her rap and flow in this song just turned out to be amazing. Her style in the song screams much about having that attention on her.
The lyrics spit by her are just awesome. Having that she did rap this song in 2020 is one of her songs that happen to show her early entrance in the music industry. To know that she can free style, this song is a clear proof of that.
At number 10 on our list of Ssaru’s songs is “kamkora” which almost perfectly means something like “crook.” It happens so that this song has Dancehall vibes in which it makes it easy to dance to.
The video of the song is well simply put together with some talented dancers in the background. Even though been that it has 80 thousand views on YouTube, I still think it just needs a little bit of boost to get more recognition.
