Google on Wednesday, January 25, provided data of the top ten most used sheng words on the platform.
Among the words featured on the top ten list include Mbwakni and Mbogi. Here is the top ten list by Google;
Google then challenged rappers to create an original verse that incorporates the top ten words that saw Kenyan rappers create their own version of the hit song “Kwaheri Remix”.
The song that kicked off the #OpenVerseChallenge was a collaboration between Hip Hop group Burukyln Boyz and Music Producer Kagwe Mungai, who were commissioned by Google to co-create the song using the top 10 most used sheng words on Search.
An #OpenVerseChallenge is a social media trend that allows upcoming artists to showcase their skills and by creating their own version of a viral song.
The winners of the challenge were Shalom Charles Kianga (Spinx_Mafia), Mwongeli Mutuku, Brian Mawira Mbae (Ma_wira).
