Juliani has made a name for himself as a socially and faith-conscious rapper. He is known for his thought provoking and hard hitting lyrics which he puts together excellently. He doesn’t do many collaborations and we know why; not many artists can match up to his train of thought.
After leaving Ukoo Flani Mau Mau to pursue a solo Gospel music career, he burst into the scene with his first album dubbed “Mtaa Mentality” which got a lot of heads turning. The song “Biceps” was the highlight of this album if you ask me. In 2011, he released his second album which he named “Pulpit Kwa Street” which included a song like “Ka si sisi” The release for this one was big! He shut down City Hall way where he did his launch concert. One thing about Juliani is that he will put on a live show that you will forever remember! His energy is unmatched.
In 2014, he released his third studio album which is known as “Exponential Potential“. This came with songs like “One Day“, “Jehovah” and “Exponential Potential” which showed a lot of growth in Juliani’s pen game.
After a couple of years, our boy has decided to bless us with a brand new album. He has been posting a lot of teasers on his social media handles and we can’t wait for it to drop! The album is titled “Master Piece” and from the reviews that we are getting form his die hard fans which he calls “Juliani Jeshi“, the album is just that, a masterpiece!
He held a private listening party where Juliani Jeshi got to listen to the project and give their thoughts on the album. Juliani worked with the legendary producer Erick Musyoka as well as young upcoming artists like Enoque Wambua.
Luckily, we don’t have to stay in the dark too long. We already have a taste of what is in the album from a recently released song called “Mabawa” which is absolutely excellent. Juliani says “Mountain ina-brag vile iko na height. Forgetting inastand under the sky“. This just reminds us that we need to be humble because we can never be greater than God no matter how great we think we are. He is the potter, we are the clay.
“Juliani comes from a place that he has had a lot of money and fame. Now he just wants to give people authentic ‘life music'”, a member of the Juliani Jeshi said on his Instagram. Juliani is also part of the recently released film by activist Boniface Mwangi dubbed “Softie”. The rapper just keeps winning. Call that God’s favor.
We wish Juliani all the best in his ministry.
