Ben Githae’s Raila-Karua Campaign Song Excites Netizens


Musician Ben Githae has yet again thrown social media into a frenzy by releasing a new campaign song for Raila Odinga and his running mate, Martha Karua.

In a video making rounds online, the lyrics of the video detail the political situation in the country, with Githae acknowledging that the country is safe in the hands of Raila Odinga and Martha Karua.

“In whose hands are we safe Kenya? We are safe with Raila na mama Karua,” the lyrics of the song read in part.

Speaking to a local publication, Githae said he composed the song yesterday although insisting that he was not aware Raila would nominate Martha as his running mate.

“I composed the song yesterday and recorded it in the studio. It is about Karua and the former Prime Minister and I am calling it ‘We are safe with Baba na Mother Karua’,” Githae told the publication.

Notably, Githae has been a huge critic of Raila and has in the past elections composed songs, not in Odinga’s favor.

During the 2017 elections, Githae made headlines for his popular song Uhuruto, Wembe ni ule ule. This was during the repeat elections where he was drumming up support for the Uhuru Kenyatta-William Ruto duo.
