P-Unit's Frasha announces official retirement from music after 23 years
Famed Kenyan music group P-Unit's lead rapper Francis Amisi, popularly known as Frasha, has revealed that he officially intends to drop the microphone after 23 years in the game.
Frasha took to social media to say that 23 has always been his magic number, and therefore he intends to make it special in his life.
The legendary rapper – known for his smooth, cheeky lines during the group’s early years - has been in the music industry for 23 years, and coincidentally his birthday is on February 23 and the year is 2023.
“23 is a magical number for me, 2023 is a magical year for me and 23rd is when I bid the game goodbye officially...Thursday, 23, 2023 will be my last public show and also my birthday party,” Frasha announced.
He went on to invite his fans to join as he takes his final bow and caps his glittering music career that has seen him win a multitude of awards and perform alongside continental heavyweights.
“Come join me as I give the last bow and celebrate my musical career, it’s a new dawn ...making moves,” he added.
Frasha and his longtime friend Bon’Eye, during the initial days of their career, formed a group known as BE’EF before they teamed up with Gabu and, while under Genge legend Nonini’s production stable Pro-Habo, formed what became known as P-Unit.
Some of their popular songs included ‘You guy’ and ‘Kare’ which earned them tonnes of accolades, not just in Kenya but also beyond.
The group however took a break after many years together, with each member purusing their own solo projects.
Frasha and Gabu later threw their hats into the political ring, vying for Member of County Assembly (MCA) seats in Machakos and Nairobi counties respectively.
Frasha first vied in 2017 for the Athi River MCA seat, before Gabu followed his footsteps and went for the Kenyatta Golf Course MCA in 2022. Both were, however, unsuccessful in their bids.
