obama-ghanabc

Kama ulikuwa hutambui jinsi Rais wa Marekani,Barack Obama,alivyo maarufu na kipenzi cha waafrika walio wengi,basi ulichotakiwa kufanya ni kuelekeza macho na masikio jijini Accra nchini Ghana huko magharibi mwa bara la Afrika hivi leo.

Taarifa mbalimbali nilizonazo kupitia vyombo mbalimbali vya habari na pia washirika wa BC waliokuwapo jijini Accra hivi leo wanasema Ghana nzima ni kama vile ilisimama. Kila kona ilikuwa imepambwa kwa mabango,nguo nk vikimkaribisha kwa shangwe na vifijo Rais huyo wa Marekani ambaye alikuwa pia ameambatana na mkewe Michelle pamoja na mabinti zao wawili,Sasha na Malia.

Lakini tukiachana na shangwe,fujo na vigeregere vilivyojiri huko Ghana,muhimu sana ni kile alichokisema Obama wakati akihutubia Bunge la nchi hiyo. Kimsingi Obama alitumia muda huo kuongea na bara zima la Afrika.Wengi wameiita hotuba ya Obama kuwa ilikuwa ni ‘lecture” kwa viongozi wetu na vile vile wananchi.

Ukombozi wa Bara la Afrika uko mikononi mwa waafrika wenyewe. Hatuna tena sababu za kuendelea kulaumu historia ya biashara ya utumwa na ukoloni kwa mabaya yanayojiri barani mwetu hivi leo.Tuachane na vita za ukabila,udini,utaifa nk.Bado nasikia maneno hayo kutoka kwa Obama hata hivi ninavyoandika.

Ili kutunza kumbukumbu hii muhimu,hapo chini unaweza kusikiliza hotuba nzima ya Obama. Pia kama kwa sababu moja au nyingine,lugha aliyotumia Obama huielewi unaweza kubonyeza hapa ili kusoma kwa Kiswahili tafsiri ya hotuba hiyo.

Baada ya kumaliza kumsikiliza Obama,hoja zilizonijia kichwani kwangu ni kwamba

  • Je,viongozi wetu au sisi waafrika kwa ujumla tutazinduka kidogo baada ya kusikia hoja nzito za ‘Ukombozi wa Bara la Afrika ni Jukumu Letu Sisi Wenyewe” kutoka kwa Obama?
  • Je viongozi wetu wamesikiliza kwa makini alichokisema Obama? Wapo tayari kuianza upya safari ya kulikomboa bara letu au ndio hadithi ya sikio la kufa?

Picha moja ni sawasawa na maneno alfu moja.Bila shaka ushasikia msemo huo.Ni kweli? Sikiliza; hivi majuzi Barack Obama amepigwa picha kama unavyoiona hapo juu.Watu wa habari(pengine kwa ukosefu wa mambo mengine ya kuzungumzia au kwa makusudi tu) wamezusha mjadala mkubwa.Wanasema Obama (akishirikiana na mwenzie  Nicolas Sarkozy wa  Ufaransa)alikuwa anaangalia nanihii ya huyo binti.Je ni kweli? Wewe ukiitazama picha hii unaonaje? Unaweza kupata maneno alfu moja kutoka kwenye picha hii?

Lakini yawezekana picha ikasema maneno elfu moja lakini yote yakawa sio sahihi? Tizama video ya tukio hili kwa kubonyeza hapa.

sugu2bcHuwezi kuthubutu kuzungumzia muziki wa kizazi kipya au Bongo Flava kama unavyojulikana kote ulimwenguni bila kumzungumzia na kumuhusisha moja kwa moja na muziki huo,Joseph Mbilinyi(pichani) ambaye kisanii tulianza kwa kumjua kama 2 Proud kabla hatujamuita Mr.II na baadaye Sugu.

Sugu sio tu alichangia kuipa Bongo Fleva utambulisho rasmi katika jamii,bali pia ni miongoni mwa wasanii “waasisi” walioamua kwa makusudi kuanza kutumia lugha ya Kiswahili katika kughani(rap) huku wakiwa na ujumbe ambao uligusa jamii inayowazunguka badala ya ile ya kusimuliwa au kuona katika luninga.Ukipenda unaweza kumwita “mwanamapinduzi”.

Hivi karibuni tulipata nafasi ya kufanya naye mahojiano.Katika mahojiano haya Sugu anabainisha mambo kibao yakiwemo masuala kama vile alipo na anachokifanya ,ushauri wake kwa wasanii wenzake katika masuala ya haki zao nk.Pia Sugu anajibu swali ambalo wengi wanaliogopa;je muziki wa bongo fleva uko katika njia sahihi?Kuna tofauti gani katika muziki huu tangu walipoanza na walipo hivi sasa?

Kubwa ya yote ni kwamba Sugu ameamua kuwapa zawadi maalumu mashabiki wake. Anakuja na albamu mpya! Ukisoma mahojiano haya mpaka mwisho utaweza kusikiliza single mpya kutoka kwake inayokwenda kwa jina Kambarage.

BC: Sugu, Karibu sana ndani ya BC.Mambo vipi?

SUGU: Asante sana mkuu.Nimeshakaribia kaka.

BC: Kwanza kabisa wapenzi wengi wa muziki wamekuwa wakituandikia wakitaka kujua ulipo na unachokifanya hivi sasa.

SUGU: Asante. Mimi kwa sasa nipo nchini Marekani. Naendelea na mitikasi ya maisha kama kawaida zikiwemo harakati zangu za muziki.

BC: Unaheshimika miongoni mwa wengi kama miongoni mwa “waasisi” wa muziki ambao leo unaitwa Bongo Fleva au muziki wa kizazi kipya.Wewe pia ni miongoni mwa wasanii wa mwanzo kabisa kuamua kurap kwa kutumia lugha ya Kiswahili moja kwa moja. Nini unadhani kilichangia uamuzi kama huo? Na je leo hii unadhani Bongo Fleva bado ipo katika muelekeo ule ule mliokuwa nao mlipoanza au kumekuwepo na muelekeo tofauti? read more

A musical labor of love and faith that’s been a long time coming is completed and you’re invited to the celebration.

A California based artist and Minister, Dennis Massawe who is a native of Tanzania, has put his inspirational message of faith into songs and you’re invited to celebrate the release of his CD No More Limbo. His message transcends all faiths and his uplifting rhythms that combine gospel, reggae and soul will move you to get into the spirit of love.

His journey has not been easy but he believes all things are possible when you follow the path you were called to walk on. From childhood to teenage, Dennis grew up in the slums of Nairobi Kenya. He later moved to his native country Tanzania with his father where he started his family at the age of twenty five.

Massawe and his family were lead from Dar-es-salaam Tanzania to Southern California and when you hear his music you too will be inspired, motivated and encouraged to go from your journey of challenges and desperation to one filled with hope and purpose.

vijana-jazzbcKama unaishi katika dunia hii hii tuijuayo sote,basi bila shaka umeshawahi kusikia kuhusu ugomvi kati ya mke wa kaka na dada zake kaka.Kwa maneno mengine ugomvi kati ya fulani na wifi yake au wifi yao.Mimi nimeshawahi kusikia na pia kuona mtu na wifi yake ambao hawapikiki chungu kimoja.Kila kukicha “kesi za ukoo” zilikuwa haziishi.Amani hakuna,kila mmoja anadai kuwa malikia wa boma.

Je ni kwanini huwa kunatokea ugomvi ugomvi hivi kati ya mtu na wifi yake au wifi zake?(sio wote lakini.Wapo mtu na wifi yake au zake wanaoiva kupita maelezo) Hili swali pengine limeshaulizwa mara milioni kidogo na bado majibu yasipatikane.Tunaweza kujaribu kutafuta majibu mapya kama tunataka.Mimi sitochangia.Sijui.

Pamoja na hayo, miaka kadhaa iliyopita bendi ya Vijana Jazz walijaribu kulijibu swali hilo katika kibao chao maarufu kilichoitwa Wifi Zangu. Aliyeongoza mashambulizi alikuwa mwanadada Kida Waziri.Nakumbuka kuwaona Vijana Jazz wakiuliza swali hili pale katika Uwanja wa Jamhuri mjini Morogoro enzi hizo.Kwa kweli ilikuwa ni burudani ya aina yake.

Nakuomba usikilize kibao hiki kisha,baada ya burudani, tafakari kisha jaribu kutupa majibu yako.Kwanini unadhani huwa sometimes inatokea rabsha kati ya mtu na wifi yake?Nani alaumiwe?Nakutakia weekend njema.

Bila shaka tunakubaliana kwamba ukiongelea wanamuziki waliowahi kutamba barani Afrika na duniani wakiliwakilisha bara la Afrika,huwezi kumuweka pembeni mwanamama Mbilia Bel kutoka DRC(zamani Zaire).

Hivi karibuni alikuwepo nchini Tanzania ambapo alipata nafasi ya kuwaburudisha ‘waheshimiwa” pale Dodoma katika viwanja vya Bunge.Naamini waheshimiwa waliburudika zaidi kwani lets face it wengi wao walikuwa vijana zaidi enzi Mbilia Bel alipokuwa akitikisa majukwaa kwa nyimbo zake motomoto kama vile Nadina, Nairobi nk. Unaweza kujikumbukusha kidogo wimbo Nadina kwa kubonyeza player hapo chini.

Pichani ni Mbilia Bel akilisakata rumba na Mheshimiwa Spika wa Bunge la Jamhuri ya Muungano Tanzania,Samweli Sitta.
