(+LYRICS+TRANSLATION+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW- KANYAGA BY DIAMOND PLATNUMZ “WAS HE STYLISHLY THROWING SHADE AT HIS EX-GIRLFRIEND?

IG @ogefashblog

The word Kanyaga means to tread, step, crush, defeat or overpower something or someone. Hence the song “Kanyaga” by Diamond is calling on people to tread on those people or anything that is trying to weigh them down or bring down their spirit or hinder their success via words or actions. Diamond Platnumz says “Iyalaya” as in “Step on all of them”  until you are able to totally get rid of them.

Diamond says people should step on their haters, pretenders, ex girlfriends (I am wondering if he was stylishly throwing shade at his ex girlfriend- Zari the boss), fake inlaws, evil minded people, internet trolls (Dem plenty), gossips and so on.

Diamond says “Deal with them so they would know they are messing around with the wrong one.”

I love this song; very brief. The artiste’s vocal was convincing. He was so expressive with the lyrics. The artiste sang in Swahili. The song has two verses. The chorus was taken twice. The rhythm flows well and the lyrics are well written.
