SKN 04                Githiga Green Stars                   Kimemerekio/Kirindi Kia Musa


Kikuyu single that seems to date from the late 1970s or early 1980s,

if only because the label design and band name echo the label of

Kenya Blue Stars, KBS.

SKN 001 is a tentative attribution as the record turned up in February 2012 on a Japanese website with a scan too small to read clearly and little supporting information. It did, however, indicate that the composer was Stephen Kimani Njoroge, who is presumably the SKN of the label’s name.
