South London based Michael Kiggundu, also known as MUNDU, brings a plethora of smooth yet edgy vibes in ‘Brag & Boast’. His fresh spin on R&B, hip-hop and trap is effortlessly delivered, with his honest lyrics and distinct expression being wildly engaging. Produced by Kaelin Ellis, with its accompanying music video directed by Kiaren, the dynamic track is instantly attention grabbing. Taking inspiration from a variety of artists including Pink Floyd, Thundercat, SZA, Coldplay and Pharell, MUNDU’s style is remarkably adventurous and playful.
On his latest release, MUNDU said: “Brag and Boast originally started as a freestyle celebrating the wins that I have experienced this year in the midst of the global pandemic, as well as the goals I am currently working to hit. Having first heard the instrumental by Kaelin Ellis (Lupe Fiasco, Virgil Abloh, Kaytranada) through a video that he posted on social media, I instantly fell in love with it and began writing the first verse with the video on repeat. Following that, I downloaded the instrumental and recorded the freestyle as a response. After posting this on social media, I immediately received a heightened response from my audience (including praise from the likes of Kojey Radical, Chi “Chopper” Lewis-Parry and more), followed by a conversation with Kaelin Ellis in which we decided to begin the process of releasing the song in full. Following this, I began to build on the freestyle and develop the concept of celebrating both current and future wins. This created the song that we have now, allowing my audience to ‘Brag and Boast’ about making it through a difficult year.”
Always creating and growing, between releases MUNDU regularly drops new music on his Youtube Channel; showcasing his wide ranging talents and gaining an ever-growing fanbase. This rising star’s work has already gained support from notable artists including Stormzy, Smino, Nico Segal, Nai Palm and Ray BLK, placing him in good stead for future projects. With over 364,000 YouTube views and 7,000+ followers on Instagram, MUNDU is set for a very bright future ahead.
