Ray C, True Love Magazine,Kenya,Interview

In Tanzania, Ray C is no longer the same “kiuno bila mfupa” artist we grew up admiring and dancing to her tunes. A lot has happened and for her they are all matters of public record. She has also been kind enough to share even the juiciest parts of her struggle for the benefit of others.

Although she is no longer anywhere near the A-list, her life story is an inspiration. Her well-documented [thanks to social media] struggles with drug addiction and weight and how she battles them is something worth anyone’s attention, prayers and support. She is a symbol of hope to anyone struggling with similar challenges.

No wonder folks at Kenya’s True Love magazine have tapped her to cover their April issue with an exclusive interview. Here is the cover.

Here is the interview I did with Ray C before her life took a drastic change.

Miss South Africa 2

If you’re into modelling and beauty pageants, you probably know very well that lately South Africa is now giving countries such as Venezuela, China, India etc a tough head-to-head competition in bringing out the most beautiful women on planet. They are reshaping circumstances you could argue.

Of course the above statement can line up well with you if you agree that winning Miss World could be used as leverage for the prestigious status. Just to give you an example or a friendly reminder; the current Miss World titleholder, Rolene Strauss, is South African.

Over the weekend, South Africa got their new beauty queen. Her name is Liesl Laurie, a 24 years old from Eldorado Park in Johannesburg. Liesl who has big shoes to wear if she is to follow Rolene’s path is a B.Com graduate from University Of Johanesburg (Soweto Campus)

As a winner she was awarded cash, a car and products valued at nearly R2 million. She also got R200,OOO for telecommunication company Cell C to spend on “random acts of kindness”.

Trevor Noah, Comedy Central, John Stewart The Daily Show

South African comedian and certainly one of the best from Africa, Trevor Noah,  will succeed The Daily Host Show, Jon Stewart as the host of the Comedy Central show. According to the network statement, Trevor who is currently on tour in Dubai will try to cover the place left by Stewart who has hosted the show for nearly 16 years and led it to 23 Emmy Awards.

The unexpected promotion comes only few months since Trevor Noah,31,  joined the show as a contributor. He joined in December. But Noah who is hailed by many comedian as one kid with a sharp comic mind, seems to have wooed the executives of the show when it came to looking for Jon’s successor. He will become the first African to host such a monumental show and one of the widely watched shows in USA.

Mwishoni mwa wiki taasisi isiyo ya kiserikali ya Imetosha Foundation iliandaa matembezi ya amani kupinga mauaji ya watu wenye albinism nchini Tanzania kitu ambacho kimekuwa kiipaka matope Tanzania. Hizi hapa chini ni baadhi ya picha kutoka katika matembezi hayo ambayo yalivuta wengi na kuwakumbusha wajibu uliopo miongoni mwetu katika kukomesha tabia hizi ambazo zinaambatana na imani potofu za kishirikina.Matembezi hayo yalianzia Viwanja vya Leaders Kinondoni na kuishia Viwanja Vya Biafra Kinondoni.

Diamond Platinumz, Khadija Kopa,Nasema Nawe,Tudd Thomas,Taarab

One challenge that every artist faces day in and day out is to remain an artist. To circumvent that trap, creativity must be at high gear-Always. It’s hard out there. Diamond Platinumz, seems to understand that challenge perfectly. He is prepared to even tap into often forgotten fan base.

 

I found myself rhyming with thoughts and vibes after watching Diamond’s new song collaborating with one and only Khadija Omar Kopa. This genre or type of music was first known as Taarab before getting so many other names including “Mipasho”. The genre is famous among the people living on the coasts of East African cities. It’s a tell-it-like it is. You are mean; I am going to tell you exactly that. Of course the “at your face” confrontational jabs will not be delivered at your doorsteps but through music.

 

Nasema Nawe is a reminder of an artist who stays on top through innovation…at least in the way he builds new audience. Here is the video.

Vanessa Mdee,Nobody But Me,Nahreel,Lunatic,Master A,South Africa

Here is one thing I probably have never said before. When I heard that Vanessa Mdee was taking a leap of faith to jump from being a VJ and stuff like that to a full-swing artist, I had doubts. Even when I interviewed her, something on my mind was telling me otherwise. By then, if I am not mistaken, I had heard only few of her songs and they all sounded to be “made from machines” than from a natural talented singer. I didn’t want to air my opinion and sound like I am teaching one’s grandmother to suck eggs. I kept quiet.

 

I gotta admit; I was wrong. I think I had allowed myself to be naïve towards the direction the music world was/is taking. In almost the twinkling of an eye, she had turned out to be The Artist to watch, listen and admire. Her career has evolved and now all I can do is to wonder how far can she go. She has close to perfect strategies for an artist’s career.

 

Latest from her is this collaboration with South African artist K.O. The name of the song is Nobody But Me [NBM] produced jointly by Tanzanian Nahreel and South African producer, Lunatic who also produced KO’s song Cara Cara. Another popular producer, Master A, added flavor to this tune.
