RIIKI REID performs Muroki’s 2019 single 'For Better Or Worse’

Muroki Mbote Wa Githinji (Muroki) and Raquel Abolins-Reid (Riiki Reid) knew of each other musically before they met personally and became friends. In this episode of Under Cover they reconnect at the Wine Cellar on K Road to catch up on old times as they drill into one another’s childhoods; compare notes on forgetting their own lyrics on stage; and try and remember exactly how they did in fact first meet.
