Kenyan songstress, Serro releases visuals of latest single “Okello”

The mellow-voiced powerhouse, SERRO has released the stunning visuals for her latest single, “Okello”.  The first scene places the viewer in a quaint rural backdrop before navigating to the flashy lights of the city.The narrative of the video captures the restlessness between a couple and the consequences of pursuing them. Using earthy but stunning visuals, the music video stays true to the catchy and soothing melody reminiscent of Mbilia Bel and the Afro-touch synonymous with SERRO.

“For me, this song is about having the will to be free in life. And relationships are what life is all about. Johnson is amazing in how he captured the picture in my head when writing and recording it,” says the “Rongai” songstress.

SERRO’s nostalgia and her sense of longing to return home are palpable with every lyric. Named after a river, SERRO mirrors this fact with her voice meandering beautifully through heavenly harmonies and soft, soaring coos.

SERRO is out to tell the African story through her Benga and Jazz-fused Afro-Pop sound. By the time she was graduating from Kenyatta University in 2017 with a First Class honors in Music, Serro had shared the stage with award-winning acts such as Sauti Sol, Dela, and Wyre.

The gorgeous songstress has been named “Top 10 Female Artistes in Kenya” by Kenya Buzz and a Cafe Ngoma Awards Nominee – Best New Act. With an  EP, debut solo concert and two more releases slated for later this year, SERRO has her hands full right now but there’s no doubt she’s back.

The latest music video is directed Johnson Kyalo and produced by Me & My Cousin Enterprise with the enacting done by Donald Openda.
