An exclusive interview with Mlaguzi, a kenyan dynamic rapper, and a member of ZSF (Zimeshika Sana Family) musical government. The Handana hit makers.

Pachagazine: Who is Mlaguzy?

Before I made my mind to be Mlaguzy, I was going by the name Mgaza as a way of paying tribute to my mentor in music Vybz Kartel who’s the leader of the Gaza Empire.

In 2017 while I was completing my high school education, I was selling weed already and the name (Mlaguzy) came up from there.

“Together we don’t need a ladder to climb up but we can lift each other.”

– Mlaguzy


Many people recognized me by that name and I decided to go on with it both as a nickname and stage name.

Pachagazine: What kind of music do you do?

I was born in dancehall so I have grown trying to do Dancehall music in a Kenyan Vibe but I also try experimenting on any genre to find fans.

It’s like a businesses, for more or new customers you have to get out of your zone and try new things to attract more.

I have done Trap Hiphop, Rap Hiphop, Genge Tone, Spoken Words and Dancehall. We try experimenting till when we find the genre which fans expect much from

Meanwhile my genre has no common name we decided to name it 25Flow because it’s a flow to any genre.

I try to take the nature of water. When water gets immersed in a bottle it becomes the bottle, when water is in a cup it takes the shape of the cup.
I’m flexible and ready for anything the game wants.

Pachagazine: When did you start your musical career

In 2017, when I met Drafted Reece who in that time took me under his recoding label Drafted Dynasty and I recorded my first track 4:20 an ode to the popular stoners slang.

A lot of songs since I began recording.

Pachagazine: Do you have a musical star that you look up to?

Vybz Kartel and Popcaan inspired me from my first day to be a musician but growing I can say I look up to everyone who has made it in the scene before me and I also look up to the underground artists who keep on trying out.
