Through music we talk. Through music we express ourselves. The rhythm gets all of us moving. It can uplift anyone from the ground up. Remember what Bob Marley said about music? He said, “Good thing about music is that it makes you feel a’iight”. He was right. Music can also give you confidence. All over sudden you have a strong posture; shoulders back,chest out, chin high. Your walk changes. You’re now walking with those wide steps wearing on your face a smile with a playful grin. You can now approach people with ease…feel me?
Unfortunately, I listened to the new single from Lady Jay Dee [relax you are also about to hear it below] when the situation wasn’t the best. You know one of those times when you feel like your brain will explode and you hold your forehead to resist? Regardless, I could feel the love. It didn’t take long before I could feel my heart racing faster. Eyes were open with that sparkle and gleam. Music can do wonders. You get lots of love out of music.
This is a brand new single from Lady Jaydee called “Give Me Love” featuring South Africa’s Mazet and the Infamous Uhuru. Give me love, which is a follow up to her riddim driven smash hit ‘Forever”, is produced by Dj Maphorisa Uhuru. Here we go; the video will come sometimes soon. BC will keep you posted as usual.
Fresh from a love come back with his bae Amber Rose, Wiz Khalifa ignited the stage of The Voice alongside the show’s Season 7 alumni Chris Jamison who filled in for Charlie Puth for a “See You Again” track.

Here is a new one from Dayna Nyange Feat Nay Wa Mitego. The song is titled Nitulize (literal translation “cool me down”). I somehow expected more. I got less. But it’s show biz and the buzz is alright. The song comes around during the heated controversy surrounding Nay Wa Mitego. He could be on the Maury Show for DNA. Same time he is rumored to be in love with an actress(someone’s ex). It’s 360 degree drama. Listen and download

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.
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.

If at times you fail to understand or follow what exactly does Jokate do, you probably not alone. She is one of those multi-talented people that can literally dare touch even the devil and have him just smile.
Whether it’s just a God-given gift or it’s something she pursue with purpose and intent, you can’t easily tell. All you can appreciate is that she gives it all.
To mark her birthday[ about 4 days ago], she released a single titled Leo Leo Feat. Nigerian star Ice Prince. It’s Aloname and Tudd Thomas production. Listen And Download it below.
You probably know by now that Professor Jay has set his target into becoming another artist turned into a politician and a Member of the next Parliament. He wants to represent the people of Mikumi Constituency in Morogoro, the place where his father still resides and where most of his ancestors are buried.
He recently got interviewed by Harakati Za Bongo [HZB] pals and had few things to say about his decision and what is shaping in his mind. Have a look
DJ Choka is a DJ than an artist. However, art is something inside every mind that excels or can excel in anything that requires creativity. Therefore, his piece of being an “artist” pushes him into the booth once in a while. Lucky for him, his experience on the microphone hyping crowds and fans, always comes handy when he jumps into the closed doors with only see through mirrors.
He is back on it again and this time he says “Nitalala Uzeeni”. He is given company by Young Lunya, Country Boy, Deddy, Climax Bibo & Bgway. The young don’t need to sleep. They need to hustle, hustle hard. Their time to sleep will come. Here is Nitalala Uzeeni.
