Biography[edit]

The crew released the album Wagenge Hao in 2010; recorded at Decimal media by Lead Singer/Composer "Pradip The BOSS" having 17 tracks most notably "Kare" (stylized KArE), "Deepak", "Nikesh" sable "Sandeep" with DNA, "Patra", "Basu", and "Prabhakar" with the last two featuring Nonini.[1] At the 2007 Kisima Music Awards P-Unit won the Boomba Group category.[2] They released a song "Gentleman" with Sauti Sol in late 2011 produced by R-Kay. In the year 2012 they released one of the biggest hits "You guy (Dat Dendai)" produced by Decimal's "Erik Musyoka" featuring Collo. The video was released later and was reportedly banned by Citizen TV for being too explicit. They released a new single "Mobimba" in March 2013 which features Alicios Theluji. They have since released a number of other singles including "Love" a kwaito inspired song in 2014 whose video was shot in South Africa and was released on Valentine's day and "Weka Weka" which introduced a new concept of music distribution by fans paying KES. 20 to download and listen to the song before the mainstream release. There was a rumored break up of the group that was confirmed as false[3] However, the individuals within the group are doing solo projects with Frasha releasing a number of singles.[4]
