UREMBO celebrates a woman’s character as what is truly beautiful in a woman, and inspired by the need to talk to women directly about what beauty is perceived as by both men and women. Speaking about the song and video, Calvo said, “I involved all these powerful and beautiful women in this project with the aim of speaking to a girl out there who has been poisoned by the world around her to believe that beauty can only be one-sided – urembo ni wewe!”
Josh of Amos & Josh, added, “Sidhani kuna anywhere in the world pahali kuna warembo kama my country Kenya. This goes out to every lady hustling crazy and making something out of life, especially single moms – urembo ni wewe!” Amos concluded, “Inner beauty never fades, it’s priceless. Uki build ya ndani, nje haiwezi fichika.”
