Someone once said this band is a reminder of Britain’s One Direction only that they are better and African. Collins Kemboi, Ikole Mwikamba and Ken Albert have come a long way.
They put up an opening show at the World Under Eighteen IAAF championship on Wednesday and Thursday at the Safaricom Kasarani Stadium. “It was a super humbling experience.
Opening for such a prestigious sports event is not something you do every day,” they gushed. They’ve been doing music for three years now in what they describe as progressive RnB.
“Our music takes the form of a diary since we write and sing about what we experience every day,”3HM tell Spice. The band’s vision is to become a global phenomena and inspire a new breed of musicians who are experimental and bold enough to make unique choices.
The Helena creators have so far been on two tours where they performed at 2016’s Ongea Music Summit and Cake Art Affair, among other festivals. They also performed at Karibu Festival in Bagamoyo, Tanzania.
“We are currently doing our second tour dubbed #boysontour that is a collaboration tour with MMCHNE, who is a creative genius who rapped in and produced our latest EP Is This For Real?
The tour started in March after the release of the EP,” says 3HM. The band has shared the stage with Sauti Sol, King Kaka, Emma Cheruto, among others.
They are blazing on stage. The band celebrated three years together by mashing up their first ever sold out concert called Twice Upon Yesterday last month. With four music videos out and more in the pipeline, 3HM promise its fans unending pleasure of their tunes.
