Prezzo is Kenyan. However, he has so much love for Tanzania in such a way that in a number of times he is confused [by music fans] to be the kid from Jakaya’s home. It works well for him. An artist shouldn’t have boundaries.
It’s no surprise; therefore, he is launching his latest single on a Tanzanian based digital music selling platform, Mkito. To him, Tanzania is home. He once almost found love in the land of peace and harmony before the dramatic scandals fueled by misuses of social media.
Enough stories. Here is his latest single Bila Mundai [I have no clue what Mundai means]. Listen,download and tell your friend to get it as well.
Few years ago Nigerians weren’t looking to East Africa for inspirations or rather music collaboration. That started to change when Davido saw something in Diamond Platinumz before they got in studio for the remix of the song Number One which eventually not only introduced Diamond to Nigerian population but also made more Naija artists pay attention to Tanzania’s music etc.
Waje, another Nigeria’s superstar has a new song in which he invited Diamond Platinumz to add the Bongo Fleva in it. The song is titled Coco Baby. Listen Up below. I love the full afro fusion beats in this song.
In the western world, the lights are already glowing and shining. In the shopping malls,Santa has already taken his usual position to create those lasting memories for kids. The radios’ playlists reflects the Christmas mood with songs that reminds us that it’s about time to go home for Christmas. It is that time of the year.
A huge difference between how Christmas is celebrated in the western world and how the same goes down in Africa,is the level of noises and lights.In Africa,lights don’t matter that much even though growing up I remember seeing a Christmas tree at my grandpa’s living room with cotton pieces indicating “snow”. Without lights though…it was noisy. In North America,for example, Christmas goes very quiet. Streets are usually empty. If you walk around you can only hear distant sounds of music coming from basements.
Things are changing though. Africa is getting quiet and the western hemisphere is learning to have “fun”. To kick start the season, Lameck Ditto has released a Christmas song titled Heri Ya Christmas. Listen and Download it below.
I mentioned last week that despite everything going on,said and done about Lady Jay Dee, there is a good reason her fans nicknamed her “Commando”. She can shake it off, get focused and move on. Whether she has entirely decided to take a new direction in her personal life or not, fans can have one guarantee. She is gonna keep doing what she does best; music.
Before the year ends and now under “new management”, Lady Jay Dee says “Forever”. In this new joint in which she collaborates with Dabo. In Forever, Lady Jay Dee is trying new heights with a reggae fusion afar from her usual Afro fusion [zouk like] we are used of.
If today’s Tanzanian music can credit someone for taking it international, AY stands more than a big chance to take that credit. He wanted to go out and inform the world that somewhere in East Africa there is a country known as Tanzania and yes there are young folks who can dare to walk in the cloud. Life and career,after all, is about dreaming and doing. When the morning comes,you have to get up,shake it all off and stand out of the hood avenue and start taking that walk to downtown. You will need confidence, good team and willingness to work hard.
For AY,that determination and dream saw him advancing not only his career but also helped others to reach just as far. But be warned,he is not done yet. He wants more. The race has just started. In his instagram posts,AY urged his fans to pretend like they haven’t heard anything from him before. This is the beginning.
In that race, he now has a brand new joint featuring Sean Kingston and Ms Triniti. The song is titled Touch Me. It’s produced by Riley & Zaire Koalo
If her career into music was a computerized chart for economists, it’d look like one of those stocks where no one ever stop smiling. It keeps shooting up and the few glitches don’t last overnight. Since she decided to add performing artist title in her resume, Vanessa Mdee hasn’t let us down. Her dedication, creativity and free soul spirit could be credited for her success so far.
Okay, I don’t want to talk about her career that much but rather for her later single with Barnaba out of which the images you see below came from. Aren’t they awesome? They are for the single titled “Siri” which came out earlier today and you can download it from www.mkito.com.
Here is their new single titled Siri (Click On The Link To Download)
It’s Wednesday 22nd October 2014. It’s another day for you to feel excited and blessed. Music runs through our blood. Good music can make a worse, horrible, terrible day to be great day. Wouldn’t you agree?
I wrote a little bit about this collaboration between MwanaFA and Ali Kiba. One is considered “Classic” in almost everything he does while the other is arguably the king of Bongo Fleva. You may duck the tapes and argue, but there is always someone standing as tall as a giraffe.The producer is Marco Chali at MJ Records

Chris Wamarya aka Shine Star is without a doubt one hell of a talented singer. You might have heard him and you may have never. It all comes from a fact that talent got be mixed up well with hard work, right management and of course a sheer of luck. That is how you stay ahead. It is one sure way of indicating to your competitors that you are passing and you need a way.
At the bottom line,however, you have to keep doing what you are best at; sing. That is where Cheusi Mangala comes in. It’s a new single from Chris which borrows the theme from OTTU Jazz’s song Cheusi Mangala. But instead of just covering the old dance hit, Chris decided to show what he can do with vocals and words.
He has an amazing talent. You can deny that only if you have never paid attention to his works. I want to be the reason you finally get to do just that. With talent comes a choice of his paths and trademark. Currently, he is the new master in Tanzania for Riddim. Once again he brings us the reason to swing in our patios, places of hip and hops. Steve gives us a good excuse to turn it up a bit when in the car heading somewhere you aren’t even sure of. Look who is on your passenger seat and be the cardinal for the day. Politely ask them to take it easy. You have many more miles to go..It’s a Tropical Riddim.
Here is Pole Pole from Steve RnB…Enjoy and don’t forget to let that special person in your heart know.
It’s by chance that I am posting this new song from AY on a Friday evening when in most places on earth it’s about to go down. After a week long grand hustle, most people prefers to look a Fridays differently. T.G.I.F events are all over the place. In North America the story isn’t different given this is the last weekend of Summer 2014. If you don’t hit clubs this weekend you can forget how summer 2014 was in that area.
AY goes back to his “commercial basics” in this club banger featuring Triniti & Lamyia. It’s a good reminder why AY is known as Mzee wa Commercial a name which you can understand its origins fully when you read what I wrote here when I reviewed and re-released the song that paved his way to fame,money and life on a fast lane.
Here is the song It’s Going Down
