Ili siku moja mtu ajulikane kama superstar mara nyingi anakuwa ametokea mbali sana. Kabla ya kuukwaa usuperstar anakuwa amehangaika,amekatishwa tama, kubezwa, kushauriwa aachane na fani na mambo kama hayo.Kwa ujumla kuna vikwazo chungu nzima vya kufika juu na kukubalika katika fani mbalimbali za kijamii. Mara nyingi jamii hupenda kuwaita watu wa namna hii ‘undergrounds”.

                             

              Msanii wa michoro ya mkwaruzo/ukutani (graffiti) akionyesha kazi zake

Kwa kutambua hilo, hivi sasa jijini Dar-es-salaam kuna kitu kinaitwa WAPI.Kwa kifupi wapi ni kifupisho cha maneno Words and Pictures. Kwa kutumia maneno na picha vijana wanapewa nafasi ya kujieleza, kuonyesha vipaji vyao na kazi zao mbalimbali za mikono na kisanii, kuwasiliana moja kwa moja na jamii inayowazunguka na hivyo kuianza safari ya kuelekea kwenye u-superstar au celebrity.

Kama wewe ni mwandishi (writer),mshairi(poet), mwanamuziki (musician), msanii wa bongo flava (rappers & hip hop artist),mtengeneza sinema(filmmaker),mchoraji wa michoro ya mkwaruzo/ukutani(graffiti painter) mchoraji picha (illustrator), mpigaji picha (photographer) nk na ungependa kuona kazi zako zionekane mbele ya washika dau mbalimbali ndani ya jamii,basi sio vibaya kama utaanzia kwa kushiriki katika matukio ya WAPI yanayofanyika kila mwezi. Wasiliana na British Council jijini Dar-es-salaam kwa maelezo zaidi.

Baadhi ya celebrities wenye majina tayari wiki iliyopita walikuwepo kuwaunga mkono “undergrounds” kwenye moja ya matukio ya WAPI.Pichani kulia  Adili msanii wa bongo flava na mmiliki wa Chapakazi Productions akiwa amepozi na Nakaaya(kushoto),msanii wa muziki wa kizazi kipya anayeibukia.

                   

                    Msanii wa muziki wa kizazi kipya,Enika naye pia alikuwepo.

 

 

Tovuti ya WAPI ambayo iko njiani kukamilika hivi karibuni, itakuwa na habari zaidi.

Mpaka hivi sasa ameshatoa albamu nne, ya tano anasema iko jikoni.

Hivi karibuni anatarajia kufunga pingu za maisha. Kabla ya kuelekea Shinyanga kwa “wakwe”, tulipata muda wa kufanya naye mahojiano. Kama msanii mwenye jina kubwa miongoni mwa wasanii wa kizazi kipya, alikuwa na mengi ya kutueleza. Pamoja na mengi Nature anaweka wazi ni kwanini katika siku za hivi karibuni miziki yake imekuwa na vionjo vya kwaito kutoka Sauz, anasemaje kuhusu uongozi wa JK? Je ana mpango wa kujiingiza kwenye siasa? Pesa na umaarufu umeathiri vipi maisha yake? Ana mipango gani siku za usoni zaidi ya kuanza kutengeneza familia yake mpya?

“Jina langu limevuma, Kwenye mitaa.Jina langu lina hadhi ya ki-superstar.Jina langu…..” Hayo ni maneno kutoka kwenye wimbo Jina Langu wa msanii mahiri wa Bongo Flava, PROFESSOR JAY au Prof Jiizeh. Hakuna ubishi, jina lake limevuma na ni kweli ana hadhi ya ki-superstar.

Alizaliwa jijini Dar-es-salaam tarehe 29 December 1975. Ni mtoto wa sita kati ya watoto tisa wa Mzee Leonard Steven Haule na Mama Rose Majanjara. Baadaye akasoma Ukonga Primary School kabla hajaelekea mji kasoro bahari(Morogoro) kusoma Kigurunyembe Secondary na baadaye Mbeya Lutengano High School.

Ana tuzo za muziki zisizopungua 25 ambazo amezikusanya ndani ya miaka 15 ambayo amekuwa kwenye game. Hivi karibuni BongoCelebrity iliketi chini na msanii huyu ambapo alifungua milango ambayo hajawahi kuifungua kabla. Katika mahojiano haya nadra, Professor Jay anazungumzia kwa undani shughuli zake za muziki, siasa za nchi,ushauri kwa vijana, role models, vilio vya wasanii kuhusu kazi zao na mzunguko mzima wa muziki. Pia anatoa ushauri makini kwa Raisi Kikwete, anabainisha mtizamo wake wa kisiasa na mengi mengineyo. Yafuatayo ni mahojiano kamili;

BC: Karibu sana katika BongoCelebrity na shukrani nyingi kwa kukubali kufanya mahojiano nasi.

PROF.JAY: Asante Sana na najisikia faraja sana kupata fursa hii ya kufanya mahojiano nanyi kwani itakuwa ni nafasi nzuri ya kuwajulisha mashabiki wangu kuhusu mustakabali wa shughuli zangu za kimuziki

BC: Unaweza kukukumbuka ni lini ilikuwa ndio mara yako ya kwanza kupanda jukwaani kama mwanamuziki huku umati wa watu ukisubiri uwape burudani. Ilikuwa wapi?

PROF.JAY: Yeah nakumbuka ilikuwa ni mwanzoni mwa mwaka 1992 nikiwa pamoja na mshkaji wangu KILLA B pale Chuo Kikuu cha Dar es salaam ukumbi wa UDASA. Nakumbuka watu walikuwa kibao nanilikonga sana nyoyo za mashabiki wa muziki huu kwa style yangu ya enzi hizo ya TONGUE TWIST.

BC: Mara nyingi wanamuziki wengi huwa wameanza muziki kutokana na kupata ushawishi (influence) fulani hivi. Unaweza kutuambia nini au nani alikushawishi kuingia katika masuala ya muziki?

PROF.JAY: Nilikuwa napenda sana kusikiliza nyimbo za akina RUN DMC na PUBLIC ENEMY kwa kuwa walikuwa wanaimba nyimbo za kupigania na kutetea haki za mtu mweusi. Kwa hiyo nikawa nazikariri na kuziimba shuleni na pia nikawa najaribu kuongeza maneno yangu na mwisho nikawa taratibu na mimi natunga mashairi yenye ujumbe tofauti tofauti kwenye jamii yangu iliyonizunguka.

BC: Ulipojitokeza rasmi katika ulimwengu wa muziki ulijulikana kama Nigga Jay, kisha yakafuata majina kama Jay wa Mtulinga, Mti Mkavu nk.Baada ya hapo majina kama HeavyWeight MC, Professa Jay na hivi sasa Daddy yakaibuka.Nini chanzo cha majina yote haya? read more

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

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
