He is still hanging on the 90% as per his own declaration. However, that remains in history books and technicalities of party politics. If you ask me, he is now at 100%. You just can’t quote him…at least not directly. He is aware of what is ahead of him [and his team] as if he has been on the mountain top and saw the dream similar to Martin Luther King. He is also aware that someone is carefully watching him. Politics is as dirty as city sewage. You got be like a dog, peeing your boundaries into good order.
His awareness, in part, is a core understanding of the changing landscapes of how we communicate and interact. The world lives and breathes online. There is power in what social media can do [and can not do]. Whoever is dreaming otherwise, perhaps an ice bucket challenge could be useful. A wake up call. Social Media isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Better compromise, get a seat in the circle and learn how it works. Don’t be like that gentleman whose idea of a vacation is coming back late from lunch.
Two days or so ago, January did something unique. He took it to Twitter to directly interact with whoever was interested to hear or get a feeling of his running platform if he gets the nomination to vie presidency under CCM flagship. History was written right there. The Q & A session was interesting. It was more provocative than secretive. I wish more people could have participated.May be an advance notice could have helped.
Things are changing or have changed. You want to win an election or be heard? You can not ignore Social Media and entire digital space[digital era]. You must, however, deploy the war-zone ethics. Social Media can make you a hero or villain. I suggest, unless you can be careful as a man with no past, use extra caution. Everything you write online is digitally stored. You will be haunted and hunted down the road.
You can read the questions he was asked and his answers on his timeline on Twitter @JMakamba . If you don’t have Twitter account or just don’t want to login in right now, you can read the entire Q & A by CLICKING HERE. You can follow us as well @BongoCelebrity
If you believe that everybody is set for greatness and no one should consider himself or herself an “underdog”, you probably wouldn’t like the general idea on this song. However, life ain’t like Christmas where everything is glory and shiny. Some people have to sweat more than others just to make a living. You may want to look up in heaven to ask why but I doubt whether you will receive a direct answer. Therefore, you should rely entirely on the magic of thinking big to win.
Izzo Bizness understands that uncommon syndrome within humanity. He accepts the fact that you and I can have the same needs but totally different paths towards meeting those needs. He acknowledges men and women who sleeps like a punching bad left at the gym after punches and punches from a champion boxer who want to stay on top. Here is Walalahoi official video depicting the daily reality of a common man in Tanzania. He goes to sleep late and he is the first one.
As independent as we are [no affiliation with any media house,subsidiary etc] we have clocked 21K Followers as of today. I have nothing but appreciation to all of you. Thank You

If the anticipation for Big Brother Africa “Hotshots” was to be measured by body temperature, we could be talking about ICU of ice buckets of its own kind. Someone could be singing Nelly’s It’s Getting Hot In Here. The momentum is building up as more housemates are revealed. That reminds me of paying up for my DStv subscription so that when the moment come, I won’t miss a thing.
Tanzania’s second housemate into Big Brother Africa has been revealed alongside housemates from Ghana and Zimbabwe. Here are the details; What do you think? Mmh…okay.
Bachelor of Arts & Social Sciences graduate Laveda was born in Dar Es Salaam. She’s single and describes herself as ‘eccentric, loving, caring, simple and fun’. Laveda is the eldest of three children and she has a younger brother and sister. She says her mom is her role model, because she has moulded her over the years and inspired her in different ways ‘through the struggles and joy of life’.
Laveda says her favourite foods are pasta and minced meat, and prawns. She loves to read John Grisham novels and enjoys the music of Shakira, D’Banj, Miriam Makeba, P.Square, Rihanna, Beyonce, Tiwo Savage, Yvonne Chaka Chaka and Brenda Fassie. She’s a mean entertainer herself, she plays the saxophone, sings, acts and dances and thinks she’d make a ‘potential’ presenter. Laveda’s favourite movies include The Notebook, Titanic and Avatar.
She entered Big Brother Hotshots to be a role model and act as a voice for Africa’s youth. Laveda says that viewers can expect ‘massive entertainment’ from her and that if she wins, she’ll give her mom some money, ‘surprise disadvantaged children’, travel and invest the rest.
Born in Accra, Kacey Moore is a married poet and songwriter, with a daughter. He enjoys banku and okro stew and says his favourite books are the Bible, the dictionary, and the thesaurus! Kacey Moore also likes the music of Usher and Lauryn Hill.
Kacey Moore describes himself as a’ go-getter’, as well as ‘punctual, a leader, a creator and a voice’. His favourite quality, punctuality. It is important to him in both himself and others.
He entered Big Brother Hotshots as a business decision, seeking exposure to the rest of the world. Kacey Moore promises viewers ‘a real person with no fakeness’. If he wins the grand prize, he’ll buy houses for his wife and mother and set up a recording studio so he can record and release his own album under his own label.
JJ calls himself ‘an entertainer’ on the back of his work as a ‘singer, rapper, actor, songwriter and director’. His inspiration behind entering Big Brother Hotshots is the platform the show provides. ‘It’s a necessary foundation for me to be able to produce my own music even if I don’t win the money,’ he says.
He says that viewers can expect to be entertained, and that they’ll also have a gym partner every morning. If he wins the money, he’ll fix up his parents’ house, invest in his career by working n his first international album and give some money to charity.

If you own a vehicle, you know the feeling when something doesn’t sound or seem to be well the moment you hit the road. It’s a mind wrenching experience. What is it this time? How much is it going to cost? Do I have any money left for that? I have just paid kids’ school fees and annual rent…phew! The tiny sweat on your forehead indicates you are loosing it. Pressure is mounting. Your heart is trying hard but you can feel it failing as minutes go by. Next thing you know, at the middle of the road in a heavy morning traffic jam, your car stops. In a panic, you try to crank it up. Nothing happens. You are screwed. The honks and yell follows…What’s wrong with you? Get out of the way…crazy world.
The good news; you can avoid all that by having your vehicle properly[ and on time] serviced and maintained. It’s a good habit like brushing your teeth/mouth. You can start this weekend by attending the first and one of the kind Automobile Clinic 2014. See the poster below. I’m gonna be there with my Red,tinted moose…
Ten years ago, I probably wouldn’t put this video here let alone the image seen above. The world was different ten years ago. Things have changed…a lot. I remember how much of a big deal was to see a girl’s thigh. Can we say that today? Of course not. Bootys are exposed to the max. Clothing are accessories in a ditch wish list. So even if you aren’t gonna see it here, you were going to come across it somewhere else. It’s in the news and I am sure soon you will see it in the monitors at the airport when you are waiting to catch your flight. No big deal. I am not going to show you something you haven’t seen…at least not from the video you are about to watch
If I hesitated somehow, you could dig that from the paragraph above. I gotta something more to tell you. I think JLo is probably or should let these kind of videos to Myrus and company. That is my opinion considering the magic number.45. However,JLo wants to sell. What else is easy to make a sale than sex[y] nowdays? You bet…Mind you,I am not denying that at 45 she looks fantastic [good genes or good docs?]…I am just saying. Jennifer from the block isn’t done!
Therefore, here is the official video making big hits online
My grandpa once told me better late than never. I took his advise to heart. In most cases it has worked for me and in some isolated incidents mixed with other minor factor,it back fired. I like to take my time. Yes..sometimes too much to the point my “enemies”[I have very few by the way-not worth it] forgets I am awake even when I am not directly observing. They end up running in shame and disgust.
I took time to post Show You Off from The Mith. I hadn’t heard much about him or his music. I had to take a walk around the bath tub and imagine its the Pacific. It turns out The Mith is something worth listening to. He is a jewel somewhere on the East Coast Of Africa. He has been around…Yes
“Show You Off” is the 3rd official single of THE MITH’s highly anticipated sophomore album titled “Destination: AFRICA”. The song was produced by Samurae from Talent Africa, and features the vocal contributions of Abaasa “The Drummer Boy”
THE MITH, who is known for delivering some of the strongest songs for the ladies, delivers another one off the top shelf. With a beat that is inspired by the traditional sound from western Uganda, and/or Rwanda, THE MITH flows effortlessly over this beat, talking about the Lady in his life.
Here are the details. The germ is below
THE MITH ft. Abaasa
Show You Off (#ShowYouOff)
Prod by Samurae
He has an amazing talent. You can deny that only if you have never paid attention to his works. I want to be the reason you finally get to do just that. With talent comes a choice of his paths and trademark. Currently, he is the new master in Tanzania for Riddim. Once again he brings us the reason to swing in our patios, places of hip and hops. Steve gives us a good excuse to turn it up a bit when in the car heading somewhere you aren’t even sure of. Look who is on your passenger seat and be the cardinal for the day. Politely ask them to take it easy. You have many more miles to go..It’s a Tropical Riddim.
Here is Pole Pole from Steve RnB…Enjoy and don’t forget to let that special person in your heart know.
