If you follow local entertainment news, I’m sure you’ve heard of the name Pitah Scarlet. He’s arguably one of the best dancers in the country and if you’ve watched Ex Ray’s jam titled Stingo, he’s the guy who does the intro.

What you may not know, however, is that he is also a musician and a talented one for that matter. This lad dropped a new track, perhaps his first release ever, a few days ago and it is getting a lot of love from his fans.
The song is titled Staki Lawama, which is Swahili for ‘Don’t blame me’ and believe you me, it’s one of the best tracks that I have heard in a long time.
Most people assume that anyone who is getting music right now has to do Gengetone to get attention but the truth is that it’s not necessarily the case.
Staki Lawama has a trap vibe yet you can still feel the influence of the Kenyan sound in the beat. Put simply, it is an awesome blend of both.
To add to that, it slaps so hard, especially if you have a good system or headphones. You will just find yourself hitting the replay button over and over. Big up to Rashy Beats for the amazing instrumental and Symo On The Beat for the excellent mastering. They nailed it.
Notably, Pitah Scarlet’s flow is also on point. The way he makes random words rhyme, you just want to keep listening to him over and over.
I also really love the video which was directed by Tony De Gigz. He did a great job. Although the concept is so simple, it’s well put together. The quality, scene transitioning and styling are also impeccable.
Watch Staki Lawama below and tell us what you think.
