Kenyan group Yunasi have been named the winners of BBC World Service’s Next Big Thing 2007 competition at the Maida Vale studios in London.The band, comprising seven men from East Africa and a French woman, triumphed with their song Ndi Ndi Ndi, about the dangers of excess drinking.

They were praised by the all-star judging panel for their “wide open, exuberant vocals” and for being “different to 99% of pop music”.

“Somehow we knew we were going to take it,” said the band’s lead singer Simon Maranga Nyarieko.

“Our song is the best thing that has ever been done in terms of music. We came thinking we were going to take the prize, but we were nervous. Now we have it,we are good to go!”Kudos guyz!!!!
