There are so many ways one can spread the gospel of the Lord, but for Kebadile Wasenda, popularly known as Kaybee, singing is the best way to go.
The young artist, who first discovered the beauty of singing at the age of 16, has released her third album since embarking on her musical journey. The album is titled Ruhakitho, which translates to ‘love’.
The first two albums were Forever and Wuaparo, which were released in 2008 and 2014 respectively. Wuaparo was a hit and it was even nominated for the Botswana Musician Union Awards (BOMU) in the category of best contemporary album of the year. Ever since then, she feels she has grown and improved her singing and her lyrical content. She told Arts & Culture of the inspiration behind this particular album. “I was inspired to title my album Ruhakitho, which means love because of the love God continues to show us as human beings,” she said.
The first track, Ruhakitho is the type of song one can listen to when feeling the utmost gratitude towards the good Lord. Its steady upbeat tune is enough to set one in the right mood of appreciation. The follow up track, You Are Faithful is suitable for a laid back Sunday afternoon where one just wants to sit back and think of the Almighty’s faithfulness.
Most of the songs in the album have a lovely rhythm but are still strong enough to get one into a spirit of praise and worship. Kaybee features other artists in the album, namely Violet, Flexy and Ogone. “Sometimes it helps to work with other people, to give songs a different feel from what the people are used to,” Kaybee said. She also went on to elaborate on how collaborating with others adds a bit of diversity to the album.
The last track on the album is Because Of You. One need not think twice when listening to this particular song. It slowly relaxes the story, reminding one that they are what they are because of God.
Kaybee has made the most of her music career by investing all that she has in her work making this album worth a purchase.
