Mbithi ‘the Kamba Boy’ is a Kenyan rap artist but it is also hard to lock him in a pigeon hole due to his known versatility in his craft. He started recording music while still in high school and he actually released his first single when he was in form three.

Growing up he was a lonely kid since his mum worked on night shifts severally and his sister was in boarding school, so he would seek solace by listening to the radio and that is how his interest in music developed. He has performed on platforms like Cake Art Affair & Industry Nite.
