  1. Download/Stream Kitendi: smarturl.it/kitendi

    Dubbed “the founding father of Ancestral Soul” by BBC, Central African DJ and Producer Boddhi Satva has joined forces with Congolese-Belgian rap artist Badi.

    “KITENDI” is a sartorial anthem dropped on a tantalizing trap beat. For the music video, Director Gilles Geek captured the artists and Café Barge’s eclectic crowd in Paris. The motion picture pays homage to legendary African musicians Stervos Niarcos, Papa Wemba and Kester Emeneya who pioneered “La SAPE” fashion movement in the 1960’s.

    Meaning “clothes” in Lingala*, KITENDI video was art directed by London-based dandies Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh of ACF with vintage styling by Amah Ayivi, Founder of Marché Noir.
    A cameo appearance of Fashion Academic Sissi Johnson in a signature afro encapsulates the blaxploitation feel of the video.

    “This is Kitendi.”
    *a language from Congo

    LYRICS:

    Couplet1

    On taffe pour une chemise alors qu’on rêve d’un empire
    Signe extérieur de richesse pour masquer nos faiblesses
    J’étais stylé avant Kanye je portais jeans troué avec quatre ourlets
    Marinière Gaultier, lunette Oakley, Papa Wemba est-ce que tu connais ?
    Ne porte pas de jeans car je ne suis pas mécanicien
    Je suis tellement soin qu’on m’appelle le médecin
    Tendancieux, Japonais, Chic et rebelle
    Frigo vide et armoire pleine

    Refrain1

    Au nom du père, du fils et du Saint Esprit de Fally
    Sapé comme jaja en Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Gianni, Yoji, Armani
    Grand prêtre de la sape, disciple Kitendi

    Couplet 2

    Nouvelle chaine en or on reste esclave du système
    Victime de la mode frigo vide armoire pleine
    Venu pour être diplômé tonton fini par chômer il est docteur soigne sa personnalité
    L’animal a souffert méfie toi de la bête car elle griffe
    Je porte de la fourrure mais si j’ouvre la veste je te griffe

    Refrain 2

    Au nom du père, du fils et du Saint Esprit de Fally
    Sapé comme jaja en Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Gianni, Yoji, Armani
    Grand prêtre de la sape, disciple Kitendi

    Couplet 3

    Je me sens comme Kester Emeneya, Stavros niarkos, Papa Wemba
    Na poto exam na Kinshasa proclamation Boddhi Satva nous béni par invocation
    Bien habillé parfumé et bien chaussé, looké fashion le congolais écossais
    Mokoto croco, cuiranta à damier le sol s’illumine quand je touche le pavé
    Weston, Rolex sur le nez Cartier, Stevros Niarkos est-ce que tu connais ?

    « My mother is a twin, so I have always been quite fascinated by the idea of twins. The way my mother could feel my Aunt’s mood even when they were hundreds of miles apart, its a phenomenon called twin telepathy, where nothing can keep them apart. »
