We all want something we can’t have at some point. Phy almost makes cheating feel so good with new visual ‘Taboo (Taabu)’. Phy heads into city at dusk to end things with her forbidden love, she later strolls through the city streets recollecting herself, proving resolve in a chilling, sad yet engrossing way. The visual also captures the bubbling creative arts and lifestyle sports culture that is very popular with the youth today. It was directed by Osiadiana Moses and produced by seasoned record producer Tim (Timwork) Rimbui. It’s the second video coming just 8 months after her debut you tube hit ‘Ruka’ featuring two of the top rappers in Kenya King Kaka, Khaligraph Jones and cameos from a slew of fast rising artists. ‘Taboo (Tabu)’ is the fifth song off Phy’s 2015 debut 10 track – afro pop album ‘Philosophy‘ released through first of it’s kind record label Ennovator Music/ Kaka Empire interestingly run by Tim Rimbui/ King Kaka.

The day I wrote this song I was in my school hostel (Nairobi Uni),hungry as heck and rushing to finish it because it was due for a music class that I was already late for over at Sauti Academy. The task was to finish,rush over to GPO with my twin size guitar,hop on a bus then present it. But I think the faster you write a song the more thought out the issue is in your head because it's right there at your fingertips. That being said,can I just finish this lecture (I'm actually in a real one) and stress on how I'm supposed to present this to you. I'm eksaireeeeeeeeeed!!!?? #TABOO #PHYLOSOPHY #FRIDAY #NEWMUSIC
Phy is the first – season winner of Endemol/Multichoice produced Maisha Super Star TV series and the runner up for Airtel Music Star, winner of 1.2 Million shillings and record deal valued at 3.5 Million Shillings with the aforementioned record label. She’s fast rising in quite challenging path that has seen few through, very few past regional winners and participants of such highly contested competitions have consistently captured our attention like Phy, making an almost flawless transition from the exploding underground scene to the mainstream corridors. Have some of that taboo.
