Well, whether they are back into love (we all know its normal to fall in love and out of love sometimes), it shouldn’t real be our food of the day, right?

Amini Mwinyimkuu started as a rapper 10 years ago and 5 years later joined THT – this was a turning point in his life as he changed his music genre and developed a voice that the nation fell in love with.
He was the centre of attention during the THT six albums launch where he performed his hit single ‘Yameteka Dunia’ playing rock guitar. He has recently completed his first album that has already seen three number one hits in Tanzania.
“THT has given me guidance and the confidence in becoming an artist and sharing my music with others,” he says.

Linah’s singing career started at the tender age of nine. She later joined the church choir where she was instantly promoted to lead vocalist.
Her break came when veteran musician and leader of the Super Matimila Band, Remmy Ongala invited her to sing in his band after seeing her perform. “One day, Late Remmy Ongala, saw me singing at our church and he was impressed with me and invited me to sing with his band” says the 20-year-old singer.
