The word Lamba Lolo has now become a household name and almost every one in Kenya, and the better part of East Africa is familiar with it thanks to four kids who call themselves Ethnic.
South African singer Nasty C has since used it on social media and now Nigerian singer Mr Eazi has come out to share how it made it in his new song.

Speaking to Nation, the singer said Kenyans encouraged him to use the popular phrase.
“In Kenya people love my song “Keys to the City” because of the line that goes “Lamba lolo, lolo lamba”. I will not go into what it means in sheng but in the streets of Nigeria “lamba” mainly means “sweet stories”. One can say, “My friend is giving me lamba”; although its meaning can also change depending on the context of what you’re talking about.”
Mr Eazi, who is also known to support upcoming artists in Africa, shared of his experience with upcoming guys in Kenya.
“The emerging Kenyan artiste I’m now working with is Rosa (Rosalie Akinyi). She was one of those who responded to the Tweet I had put out. When I came for the Nairobi concert in April, she came with her producer to my hotel and we set up the studio. We worked together on a song, including the song-writing, and my producers worked with her too. I feel that her energy is a factor that could make her blow up,” he said.
