Affiliates, is a music group of Kenyan artists who joined, to fulfill their music careers as partners and as friends. The group was invented by WillX, J-Star and the late V2 back in 2009 when they were still in high school and decided to work together to introduce their music and talents. They capture different styles of music including hip-hop, R&B, dance, rock, dancehall and pop into their music stature.
They are and have continued to work with Hypemasters entertainment and are working on their album with hits such as ‘New Age’, ‘1 to 10’and ‘Brother love’ had positive outreach to music listeners globally and they have then done videos for songs New age and 1 to 10 as they look forward for more in the future. They are currently working on their next song ‘My City’ (K.EM Production) which is to be soon launched.
Even though they lost one of their members (V2) through a car accident back in 2011, they quote that Affiliates to them is like a family and their working together has enabled them to mature their skills as musicians and entertainers. Their mission and vision in the music lifestyle is to entertain the local, regional and international media and listeners in a positive attitude and accomplish their dreams as professional musicians. They come with a unique style of music that defines their persona that they believe will transform the Kenyan music industry. There is no doubt that with the help of their record label, fans and their strong efforts they will accomplish their targets. They prop their motto: GOD First….
