#MeetThePlug Niuru – The Retro Trio Making New Rules in Kenyan Music

Niuru is an upcoming Kenyan band that is dedicated to bringing a new style of music by fusing the ghetto vibe, an African touch and a feel of new rule R&B. Niuru is also looking forward to encouraging people to pursue whatever they want to be.

Your stage name is quite unique; tell us about that and how it came about?

The term Niuru came from two words sandwiched together, Nuru which is a Swahili word meaning light and New Rule leading to Niuru.


What was the inspiration behind the name?

We just wanted something that would define us, something musically unique and African.

How do you go about the challenges?

Music is something we all love so despite the challenges we never give up.

What inspired your entry into the music industry?

The desire and passion from each of one of us to fulfilling our common goal did.

Any Kenyan artists you look up to?

Yes though we can’t really specify but generally, let’s just say we do feel inspired by artists and bands that have positive vibes and of course those that stand out now that is all about uniqueness.
