Hatutoshangaa hata kidogo ukituambia kwamba siku hizi unapowaongelea kina Michuzi ni vyema ukafafanua zaidi unamuongelea yupi. Kuna Ahmad na kuna Muhidin. Leo sisi tunamuongea Ahmad.

Ahmad Issa Michuzi (pichani) ambaye ni mhariri msaidizi wa jarida maarufu la burudani la KITANGOMA, mpiga picha hatari, ni mdogo wake Muhidin Issa Michuzi ambaye sifa zake sote tunazitambua.Huyu, tunaweza kusema, ni celebrity ambaye kivuli cha kaka yake wakati mwingine kinamziba. Lakini wakati huo huo kivuli hichohicho kina manufaa makubwa kwake, sio tu kuhusiana na ujuzi na ushauri bali pia na mengineyo mengi. Miezi kadhaa iliyopita aliamua kufuata vilivyo nyayo za kaka yake kwa kufungua blog yake ya picha ambayo imeshaanza kupata watembeleaji lukuki.

Katika kuthibitisha kwamba yeye ni gwiji na ameshakomaa sana tu katika fani ya upigaji picha, picha takribani zote zilizozagaa mtandaoni, zikiwemo zilizopo katika tovuti hii, kutoka katika msiba wa marehemu Mheshimiwa Amina Chifupa (R.I.P) yeye ndio mpigaji wake. Kama mhariri msaidizi wa KITANGOMA, mwajiriwa wa Prime Time Promotions, kijana ambaye kila siku kazi yake ni kuwasaka na kuzungumza na celebrities wa Tanzania, hususani wa fani ya muziki, ni lazima anakutana na mengi na pia anaona mengi. Nini maoni yake kuhusu sanaa hiyo ya muziki? Nini kimemsukuma kufungua blog yake? Je anajaribu kufuata nyayo za kaka yake au ana malengo tofauti? BongoCelebrity hivi karibuni ilifanya naye mahojiano yafuatayo;

BC: Jina Michuzi linafahamika hivi sasa kila kona ya dunia. Sababu inaeleweka. Kwa kifupi unaweza kutueleza Ahmad Michuzi ni nani?

A.MICHUZI: Ahmad Michuzi ni mjasiriamali, mpiga picha, blogger, mwanahabari, mcheshi, mchangamfu na mwelewa.Alizaliwa mjini TUKUYU mkoani Mbeya miaka 29 iliyopita.

BC: Umekuwepo kwenye uwanja wa entertainment kwa muda mrefu sasa. Unadhani mambo yanaendelea mbele au yanarudi nyuma? Sababu zozote? read more

Hizi hapa chini ni baadhi ya picha kutoka kwenye msiba wa Amina Chifupa ambaye kama alifariki dunia jana usiku. Kwa sababu alizaliwa tarehe 20 Mei 1981 amefariki akiwa na umri wa miaka 26 tu! Pamoja na kuwa na umri mdogo namna hiyo Amina Chifupa atakumbukwa kwa mengi achilia mbali historia ya kuwa mbunge mdogo kuliko wote wa Bunge la Jamhuri ya Muungano Tanzania lililopo hivi sasa. Vita dhidi ya madawa ya kulevya aliyokuwa ameianza kabla mauti haijamfika inamfanya awe sio tu shujaa bali mwanamke na kijana jasiri kupita kiasi. Daima tutamkumbuka kwa hilo.

Sauti yake kama mtangazaji wa Clouds FM, MC katika shughuli mbalimbali, kama mbunge, mtetezi wa vijana na wanawake daima itabakia masikioni mwetu sote.

Anatarajiwa kuzikwa leo huko wilayani Njombe mkoani Iringa. Mungu ailaze roho yake mahali pema peponi.Amina.

Sheikh mkuu wa Tanzania Issa Shabaan bin Simba akiongoza ibada.

Sehemu ya umati uliofika nyumbani kwa wazazi wa marehemu mheshimiwa Amina Chifupa, Mikocheni jijini Dar-es-salaam. Kulia aliyesimama ni Muhidini Issa Michuzi, celebrity na mpiga picha maarufu.

Luiza Mbutu Nyoni na Jessica Charles pia walikuwepo kutoa pole kwa ndugu, jamaa na marafiki wa mheshimiwa Amina Chifupa.

Hivi punde BongoCelebrity imepokea habari za kusikitisha sana kwamba aliyekuwa mbunge wa vijana, Amina Chifupa (pichani) amefariki dunia muda mfupi tu uliopita. Mauti imemkuta katika hospitali ya jeshi Lugalo alipokuwa amelazwa. Chanzo cha mauti bado hakijatolewa rasmi.Endelea kufuatilia ukurasa huu kwa update zozote zitakazopatikana.

BongoCelebrity inatoa pole kwa ndugu, jamaa na marafiki popote walipo na pia watanzania wote kwa ujumla.Mungu ailaze pema peponi roho yake.

Jina lake halisi ni Jacqueline Ntuyabaliwe, nyota yake ni Sagittarius (Mshale). Wengi bado tunamkumbuka kama mrembo aliyetwaa taji la Miss Tanzania mwaka 2000 na kisha kuiwakilisha Tanzania katika mashindano ya mrembo wa dunia (Miss World) yaliyofanyikia nchini Uingereza na Visiwa vya Maldives.

 

Tofauti na mawazo ya wengi, kama anavyobainisha katika mahojiano tuliyofanya naye hivi karibuni, alianzia kwenye muziki kisha akaja kwenye urembo na baadaye akaamua kurejea katika muziki mahali ambapo ndipo alipo hivi sasa. Mwezi ujao anatarajia kufyatua albamu yake ya pili itakayokwenda kwa jina la K-Lyinn- Crazy Over You.

Ametoka wapi, nini mtazamo wake kuhusu muziki na urembo, wapenzi wa muziki na mashabiki wake watarajie nini katika albamu yake mpya, nini siri ya urembo wake na anatoa ushauri gani kwa wasichana? Hayo yote na mengineyo ameyaweka bayana katika mahojiano yafuatayo;

BC: Unaweza kuwaambia mashabiki wako kuhusu maisha yako ya utotoni? Unakumbuka nini kuhusu utoto wako?

K-LYINN: Utotoni nakumbuka jinsi nilivyokuwa nacheza na baba akirudi kutoka kazini na mara nyingi alikuwa akinipeleka kutembea jioni.Pia nakumbuka nilivyokuwa nikienda kanisani na mama.Nilikuwa napenda sana kusomewa hadithi za vitabu.

BC: Historia ya maisha yako, kama ilivyoandikwa kwenye tovuti yako, inaonyesha kwamba baada ya shule ulianza shughuli za muziki kwa kuwa mwimbaji wa Tanzanite Band. Baada ya hapo ukaingia kwenye masuala ya ulimbwende ambapo ulifanikiwa kushinda taji la Miss Tanzania mwaka 2000 na kisha baadaye ukarejea kwenye muziki tena. Nini kilivutia kwanza kuingia kwenye muziki na kisha masuala ya ulimbwende? read more

Ukiiona katuni yake gazetini, huhitaji kutambulishwa au kusaka sana jina la mchoraji hata pale anapokuwa hajaweka sahihi yake. Taswira yenyewe ya katuni itakueleza. Ni katuni ambayo imekuwa sehemu ya maisha ya watanzania kwa miaka mingi sasa. Wengi wetu tunamfahamu kama Masoud Kipanya. Lakini je hilo ni jina lake halisi? Alianza lini shughuli za uchoraji?

BongoCelebrity leo ina furaha kuwaleteeni mahojiano ya kina na Masoud Kipanya, maarufu pia kama KP, mchora katuni maarufu, mtangazaji wa CLOUDS FM na pia mbunifu mahiri wa mitindo (fashion designer). Katika mahojiano haya, pamoja na kuweka bayana maswali mawili yaliyoulizwa hapo juu, KP anaongelea zaidi maisha yake kama mchora katuni zikiwemo kasheshe alizowahi kukumbana nazo, mtizamo wake kuhusu jamii au nchi zinazoendelea kama yetu ya Tanzania, anatoa ushauri kwa wanaotaka kuwa wachoraji kama yeye na zaidi ya yote anao ujumbe maalumu kwa Watanzania kuhusu viwalo vya KP vitakavyokuwa sokoni hivi karibuni.Yafuatayo ni mahojiano yenyewe;

BC: Awali ya yote, hebu tueleze Kipanya ni jina lako halisi au ni jina la katuni wako? Na kama ni jina lako halisi kwanini uliamua kulitumia kwa ajili ya katuni wako maarufu kama KIPANYA?

KP: Jina langu halisi ni Ali Masoud, jina la Kipanya ni matokeo ya katuni ya Kipanya niliyoibuni karibu miaka 13 iliyopita.

BC: Kwa ufupi unaweza kutuambia ulianza lini na kivipi kuchora katuni au vikaragosi kama ambavyo wengine wanaziita?

KP: Mapenzi ya kuchora yalianza nilipokuwa darasa la pili, na nilianza kwa kuiga tu katuni za ndani na za nje kama ilivyo kawaida kwa yoyote anayeanza kufanya kitu, ila professionally nilianza rasmi mwaka 1988, huo ndio mwaka ambao katuni yangu ya kwanza ilitoka katika gazeti la Heko.

BC: Je unatoka katika familia ya wasanii au wachoraji? Unao ndugu zako ambao nao ni wachoraji? read more

Ahadi ni deni. Kama BongoCelebrity ilivyoahidi hivi karibuni, majuzi tumefanya mahojiano na mwanamuziki mahiri wa muziki wa kizazi kipya AY au Mzee wa Commercial kama ambavyo anajulikana pia.

Jambo moja lililo wazi ni kwamba AY ni mwanamuziki ambaye kila kukicha anajaribu kutunga na kuimba nyimbo zenye ujumbe mahsusi. Iwe anaongelea ubinadamu, maisha, mapenzi au starehe msikilizaji atapata ujumbe kamili. Hivi karibuni wimbo wake ujulikanao kama Usijaribu ulimwezesha kushinda Tuzo ya muziki bora wa Hip Hop nchini Tanzania kutoka kwa Kili Tanzania Music Awards.

Wakati habari zake binafsi (alizaliwa wapi,akakulia wapi nk) zinapatikana katika tovuti yake, yafuatayo ni mahojiano tuliyofanya na AY; Pichani juu (kulia) ni AY akipokea tuzo ya Kili Music Awards kwa wimbo bora wa Hip Hop wa mwaka hivi karibuni.

BC:Turudishe nyuma kidogo… ulianza lini shughuli zako za muziki na je
unakumbuka siku ya kwanza kabisa ulivyopanda jukwaani kama mwanamuziki? Ilikuwa wapi na ilikuwa vipi?


AY:Ilikuwa poa sana,nilihisi nina jukumu kubwa mbele,ilikuwa Dodoma NK DISCO

BC: Kabla hujatoka kama solo artist tunakukumbuka kama mmojawapo ya
wanamuziki waliokuwa wakiunda kundi lililojulikana kama S.O.G kabla
hujatua East Coast Team. Unalo lolote la kusema kuhusu wenzako mliokuwa
nao S.O.G na pia East Coast Team?Je bado mnawasiliana mara kwa mara?

Flaviana Matata, mrembo wetu wa Kitanzania ambaye hivi majuzi tu amefikisha umri wa miaka 20, ndiye kwa mapana na marefu, katika siku za hivi karibuni, ametokea kuwa balozi mzuri sana wa Tanzania. Ushiriki wake katika kuwania taji la Miss Universe hivi karibuni huko nchini Mexico, sio tu umeiweka ramani ya Tanzania katika sehemu nzuri katika masuala ya urembo, lakini pia umeacha gumzo dunia nzima. Hii inatokana na ukweli kwamba ‘utofauti” aliokwenda nao huko Mexico bado ni gumzo mpaka hivi sasa midomoni mwa watu hususani kuhusu sanaa ya urembo. Urembo ni nini? Ni nywele, ni rangi ya chocolate ya mwili au nini hasa?

Hivi karibuni mrembo Flaviana alifanya mahojiano maalumu na BongoCelebrity ambapo pamoja na mengi mengineyo, anaongelea mipango yake, kwanini yeye ni mrembo asiye na “nywele” nk. Yafuatayo ni mahojiano na Flaviana Matata.

BC: Do you get nervous going on stage, in the of event like the recently ended Miss Universe pageant, knowing it is broadcasted live and you are representing the whole country?

FM: I am not nervous at all as I am now used to walk in front of many people, I started in Tanzania during the Miss Universe Tanzania preliminaries.

BC: What is the hardest thing about being Flaviana (yourself) in Miss Universe?

FM: It’s all about my bald head. People do not understand when I tell them I was like this before. They think I shaved my head for the Miss Universe competition

BC: When you wake up in the morning, what do you see looking at yourself in the mirror? read more
