Meet Odi Wa Murang’a, A Wise Gengetone Artists who is Making Millions Farming Vegetables.

Odi Wa Murang’a emerges as a beacon of courage and foresight within Kenya’s artistic community, particularly in the aftermath of Gengetone music’s decline.

Amidst the ebb of Gengetone, Odi embarked on a daring venture into agriculture, specifically vegetable farming, a move that has proven immensely lucrative, catapulting him into financial success.

Who exactly is Odi wa Murang’a? He is a renowned figure in the Gengetone genre, aged in his mid-20s, and holds a prominent position as a senior member of the Boondocks Gang alongside Exray and Edu Maddox.

Odi’s musical odyssey began within the realm of gospel music. However, faced with apparent challenges, he and his compatriots transitioned into the Gengetone sphere. The years 2018 and 2019 witnessed their zenith, with Boondocks Gang reigning supreme.

The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic precipitated a downturn in Gengetone’s fortunes, prompting Odi and his peers to seek alternative avenues for sustenance.

In a series of interviews with various online media platforms, Odi disclosed the substantial earnings they once reaped from music, with figures reaching up to Ksh. 200,000 on auspicious days. However, he astutely redirected these resources towards his agricultural pursuits back in Murang’a.
