It is said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery so Dallas based Kenyan artist QStick decided to do a remix to Nonini’s hit “Si Lazima.”
QStick’s remix is titled “Ni Lazima.” I am all for supporting upcoming artists. So listen to this video coz for some reason QStick was not able to post the video aspect of it.
