Emmanuel Kiio aka Mbokotho, born in Machakos County though having grew up in different shifting environments, is currently at the verge of breaking the Kenyan airwaves .
The singer who attended Mwingo Primary school in Mombasa, Starehe boys’ center in Nairobi and Maseno University (BA/Media and mass communication) in Kisumu County, has shown his urge to rise to the top of chats in weeks to come.
Mbokotho started writing song lyrics since I was in primary school, begining with gospel songs without actual production , a priority he says didn’t come easy as at today
High school for him was a four years of continuous songwriting in order to perfect his skills.
His doors started opening when he met 411 society which was by then composed of Lax, Cornrows, Flaqo.
Mbokotho producing with them but lost the formula middle way and even fearing that his work would never get to be listened to .
He later met met Nadia Mukami whom he talked to and I started to understand music composition even more.
To date Mbokotho boasts of a continuous 3 years of perfection in lyricism and as we speak he is in and out of studio trying to make use of what he has been preparing for the many months.
We do hope that his collaborations with Motif di Don, Mavo On The Beat together with other renown entertainers will shade more light on his music career, not to forget his awaiting releases with the biggest gengetone groups in the country.
I am confident now that I know what am doing. I have worked with motif di don on 4 songs and with Mavo on the beat on out 3rd song and am excited to be doing hits with some big names in the gengetone world
