What does good music do for you? Well for me good music does wonders. It turns a frown into a smile, turns a mountain to an anthill, mends a broken heart, gives hope to a hopeless situation and much more. If the music is well composed, recorded and mastered it will end up as the ringtone and/or that song always on replay on your gadgets. I realized I get to even love a song more if I can relate to it. With that said, I refuse to comment about ’5 o clock in the morning’ I know I have over tweeted about it in the recent past,it is the only song that plays while I am driving around, my ringtone too … i blame my small sister for making me hooked to it. It is however getting kicked off by a track i got to listen to and is getting released inMarch 2012. Songs that I can fully relate to take me to clouds ….. ‘Moving on swiftly’
Mimmo is a fast, talented rising act in Kenya. She is an independent recording/performing artiste/songwriter based in Nairobi Kenya. She blends her music by mixing the local Kenyan Boomba sound, hiphop and R&B. She has worked with renowned music producers like Eric Musyoka of Decimal Records, Lucas of Ogopa Deejayz, Freddy of Homeboyz, Ulopa of Ulopa Ngoma just to mention a few. She won the Boomba female artist award in 2008 during the Kisima music awards because of her hit track Best friend featuring COLLO, King wa RAP produced by Ogopa Deejays. The fact that she has won an award shows how great and talented she is and that she settles for nothing below perfection in what she does. She keeps her fans entertained and maintains consistency in the industry by releasing hit after hit after hit. HITS YOU CAN RELATE WITH. She has worked with P UNIT in Kare produced by Eric Musyoka and i am sure you will all agree that song was karee for sure.

Be among the first to listen to it on her Reverbnation page. Do follow her on twitter, reverbnation or like her facebook page to not only get updates of the great things she has in store but also converse and give her your feedback.
Something else I like about Mimmo is the way she selflessly gives back to the community. She is known in taking part in different activities and most recently she way part of the team that put a smile on the face of Kenyatta National Hospital accident patients and Spinal Injury Hospital patients during Valentines for the LOVE DRIVES event. She is an icon and source of inspiration to many young upcoming artists.
The industry best be ready for her.
