Ken Ring is a Swedish rapper with Kenyan roots that is well invested in the country of his ancestors. “He is passionate about football and understands the makeup of football in the country. He knows about the struggles and sacrifices that must be made.”
These difficulties are referenced in Ken Ring music, and he spoke with Oz about the pros and cons of Kenyan soccer and how it is affected by Kenyan society.
Kenya is a country with a booming and diverse community. The people live a vibrant and exciting lifestyle. Football is immensely popular in Kenya, as can be seen by the swathes of jerseys visible while simply walking down the street. The sport is ingrained in their culture and tradition, and local tribes, as well as Kenyan history in general, is represented by clubs like AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia.
“The sport is very much community-based,” Kerry said. “Players and clubs represent the area where they are from, the tribe they are from, and their life while growing up. Kenyan soccer is very similar to the rest of Africa in this regard.”
But while the sport in the country is steeped in tradition, it is growing and changing with the rest of the world: becoming modernized and being led by a younger, forward-thinking generation. Nowadays, fans from around the world are finding ways to incorporate urban music with soccer. We did witness it and Ken Ring is a part of it.
