The T412 is a contemporary Christian music group based in Nairobi, Kenya. They derive their name from 1st Timothy 4:12 which say do not let anyone despise you because you are young but set an example unto the believers in speech, faith, love, conduct and purity. They seek to inspire generations with the message of God’s love for man and plan for salvation. Thus their music is highly engraved with Biblical perspective and irrefutable amazing mastery of skill. They also desire to be godly examples in this generation and positively inspire many to trail Christ’s example in word, life and deed.
The T412 was birthed in 2011 as a dance group by a bunch of high school leavers attending Ex-candidates program, in Christ Is the Answer Ministries (CITAM), Buruburu Church. With time the number dwindled as members got enrolled in University while others got work commitments. The dancers would at times spend practice sessions free styling over beats and in no time they decided to pursue music.
In 2012 they sought to record their music but financial constraints abased them. After a myriad of tries with different producers they found favor with Davis Ngalah aka Ngalizo Mtu kawaida who offered to record their music at a minimal fee.
“Not only did Ngalizo believe in them and gave them constructive criticism but he became a musical mentor and encouraged the group to be united and pursue music and a sole vision. They recorded a few singles and their first cypher: The Greatness Cypher.”
In no time the crew came knocking at Ngalizo’s door to record other singles. This enabled them to
have their debut 15 track compilation dubbed ” Revive All Mixtape 12:12:12 ” which the crew launched in 12th December 2012 at CITAM Buruburu.
2013 and 2014 were tremendous and favorable years for The T412 as the GROUP got to partner and involved in missions to schools, juvenile centers, crusades, churches, camps, universities and colleges where they got exposure and a platform to inspire lives.
The group grew in word, skill, favor and were able to compile their sophomore 15 track compilation titled ” The
Good News Mix tape” which was launched in 15th December 2013 at CITAM Buruburu.
The T412 are set to release the long awaited and much anticipated compilation dubbed Before After The Dozen this
August 16th Sunday. God, The Alfa and The Omega-the author of time makes everything beautiful in its
time. Before After springs from the hope that although we don’t know what may happen tomorrow, We know who holds the future and since He has been faithful time and time Before He will also do it in the
The thematic approach is evidenced in the records Aon Know. We Deh (There). Working with Mtukawaida AkA Davis Ngala of the legendary Yunasi and super talented production team of the Box House Media, they have created a rich Kenyan sound with Hip Hop, Trap, Reggae, Dancehall , Contemporary Afro elements and many more genres.
