Tumetoka Mbali

Gerald Rabura Kamau popularly known as Ankoo got his stage name from his nieces and nephew who couldn’t pronounce Uncle properly.

Currently based in Nairobi, Ankoo grew up in Murang’a County and began recording in 2010. His love for music, however, started while he was in Primary school where he loved to perform during school functions and also at the annual music festival. He continued to perform through High school but took a break when he went to University only to take up music after graduating.

Ankoo, who describes himself as a creative, says music is his passion and he likes to compose songs as well as perform. He enjoys it most when his audience is entertained as well as enlightened by the different messages in his songs.

Maria, the song he recorded last in his debut album is his most favourable one because of the beat, the sound and the flow. Plus, it is also amorously emotional, much to the liking of many. He says his producer must have saved the best for last and even when he finished mixing it, everyone in the studio was thrilled.

Having lived in Dar-es-Salaam and Dubai for 3 years each, his songs are heavily influenced by Swahili and Arabic music. For his upcoming album, Ankoo wants to explore the Bollywood Hip Hop beat and also experiment with Arabic beats as well as explore a fusion of Salsa and local sounds.
