Elani latest release ‘Sirudi’ goes deeper than a typical ballad. The song is about a partner experiencing domestic violence at the hands of a reckless man. Elani enlisted Jaguar for the jam and you can feel his influence all over the beat style-a times criticized for monotony but has undeniably churned him hits for years. I’m pretty impressed by the cast for the visual. Wambui and Bryan killed their roles in the unhealthy relationship, Jaguar and Maureen playing the concerned friends, it’s short and well scripted . According to the visual, 38.2 % of women and 21% of men exprience physical abuse within their relationships (National Crime Research Center, 2015 Report) which is a very daunting figure.
Jaguar and Elani have always been keen on telling stories through their songs and striving to connect with real life issues affecting their fan base. The Urban Afro band has been doing well since their hiatus, they featured in King Kaka’s ‘Papa’ to honor fathers on Fathers’ Day and recently featured Chameleon( Uganda) on ‘My Darling’ .
