Maũ – Haba Na Haba

Immediately when I heard Maũ, I got flashes of artists like Ghostpoet and Lord Apex. Maũ has a bit of British flair to him with his style of rapping but quite the grasp on melody too. Maũ is actually a native of Kenya, who’s now living in New York so the man’s well traveled and he’s got plenty to spill out on songs. The title “Haba Na Haba” comes from a Kiswahili proverb “Haba na haba hujaza kibaba”, which means “little by little fills the pot”. The inspiration behind the song came from the feeling of allowing himself to be both patient and aware of the present. It’s a certainly impressive song from an exciting new artist.
