This platform creates the perfect opportunity for MDQ to release her impeccably produced and much anticipated hip-hop album MDQ UPGRADED. Having released MDQ on a digital platform in 2013, Muthoni has been hard at work in 2014 using the feedback she received from fans and working on remixes of key songs from the album. The result, MDQ UPGRADED features collaborations with int’l no 1 artists such as Wyclef Jean (USA), Khuli Chana (SA), Navio and Keko (both UG), Nyashinsky (Kleptomaniacs), Kagwe Mungai (KE) and Arunga (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis).
Being the first album release party of 2015, and the first release from a female hiphop artist from Kenya, Muthoni will be pulling out all the stops and has confirmed that she will have live remixes of the songs featuring the best Kenyan Hiphop artists including: Rabbit, Collo, Kristoff, Octopizzo. Kagwe Mungai and Blinky Bill will also be making a guest appearance at the show. This promises to be the hottest show at the start of this year and we urge you to make a date with Muthoni Drummer Queen and HomeBoyz Radio on 21st Feb 2015.
