Gengetone is a popular music genre in our country today. It has led to rise of stars, vixens, promoters, hypemen, deejays, directors etc. Moreover, it has received a high airplay by the local TV and radio stations. This has outdone naija & bongo hits from their earlier dominancy in the airplays.
Only One Delo is a gengetone artiste who came to super fame after releasing his hit *Chupa ku Chupa. The song was highly appreciated by Kenyans as it was always on the airplay.Luckily I had to talk to him about his music career and as always he had to respond to some questions.
