MwanaFA and Kiba

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

Cheusi

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.

Steve RnB - Pole Pole Cover

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.

AY

AY

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

Anna Peter-Garasa Feat.Barnaba

As you can imagine, sometimes I receive too many songs for review and publication. While some weeks can go almost “dry”,some weeks are busier than all blue Mondays combined. Every artist wants to release their new materials. In the music business [it applies in many other industries too] timing is crucial. You want to release your stuff when you are almost guaranteed to grab people’s attention. That goes along with a silent prayer like the one you give or should give the moment you take a seat at church. In your silent prayer you should ask for calmness into the world. No calamity or no one famous than you passes away or create anything more sensational than your new music. Therefore, I understand [and not complaining] why some weeks are heavier than others.

One of the new releases I received last week and I couldn’t post [You know I have a 9-5 equation] came from Anna Peter [stage name Anapita], a radio presenter who has tapped stage performance and doing some excellent work. In her new song, Garasa, Anna Peter decided to work with Barnaba one of the best vocalists in the country. Barnaba is also a good song writer and arranger.

The song Garasa is another love themed song. Its different though…Take A Listen

Mpaka Kuchee-Chid Benz Feat. Diamond Platinumz & AY

His known “dark” side is being violent. However, you can hardly deny the fact that he has a unique flow and mastery to the art of Hip-Hop. I am talking about Chid Benz [Mtoto wa Ilala]. From the days when he shot to fame with Dar Stand Up, Chid has remained one of the artists who rarely make a turn into wrong hood.

Here is his new track titled Mpaka Kuchee featuring Diamond Platinumz and AY who I recently chatted with him and released one of the songs from his early days. Listen Up…

Bushoke+Album+Cover+Bwagamoyo

Bushoke is one of the most naturally gifted vocalist of this generation [in Tanzania and East Africa-good to be specific]. Even with such a gifted voice and coming from a family of artists [his Dad is Max Bushoke-one of the earlier generation great vocalists] he can’t claim to have been very lucky. His career so far has had twists and turns. There was success that came from his hit song Barua. Then he fell off…drifted like a bus meandering through mountains in deep Chile. Substance Abuse became part of his ordeal.

I am therefore glad to see him bouncing back. His voice is definitely one thing of which music fans across the nation have missed. The new song is titled Bwagamoyo. For some of you not familiar with Tanzania, Bagamoyo is a small town about 75 Kilometres from Dar-es-salaam on the coast of Indian Ocean. It is said, Bagamoyo is a place where you can go relax and put your mind to rest. The song connects the place and image of love where Bushoke announces to rest his mind[love] on someone. Listen

Juma Nature Na Inspekta Haroun

The last time these two collaborated in a hit song [ to the best of my knowledge] is when they remixed Mzee Wa Busara. That work followed long time rumors that these two didn’t see eye to eye. They had  a “beef” for a while. It became almost a street war for these two popular artists hailing from Temeke in Dar-es-salaam, the neighborhood that is known to be “tough land”. Mzee Wa Busara collaboration settled whatever “beef” they had. They proved to be grown ups who wouldn’t depend or live with grudges forever.

Years later, these two are back in studio-together. They are actually rumored to be making a collaborative album. I can’t confirm that. However, if those rumors have truth element in it, the proof could be from this single. It is titled Mungu Ndio Anapanga produced by Duppy at Uprise Music.

Listen Up and share. There is  a good feeling in sharing. If you feel down[hey we all have fading days]…send someone this song. It’s a good song and a good message. Enjoy

Professor Jay-Tatu Chafu Video

Recently I saw the biopic of James Brown titled Get On Up [ I recommend any movie lover to go see this movie]. As you know or have heard countless times, James Brown [The Godfather Of Soul] is often referred as The Hardest Working Man In Showbiz. He was vocal,flashy and witty. He worked hard to change the way things run in music industry. What JB did is valid to this day. Hard work pays.

I am not sure if Professor Jay has seen Get On Up yet. But his lately energy of working hard somehow made me connect him into the throne of artists who works hard. With fans eagerly waiting for the video of Kipi Sijasikia, Professor dropped Tatu Chafu. You may think [with success and fame that he has enjoyed -and continue to enjoy and attract] he’d slow down. Nah! He is busy than ever before. Right now he is shooting for the video of Tatu Chafu, a true hip-hop single he released recently. The image you see above is from one of the location during the shooting of the video. Jiize is on the fastest lane and not even a highway patrol trooper is about to catch him. He doesn’t seem to sit down and depend on wind and the rain to bring success. He is running after it even harder.

You can Listen And Download Tatu Chafu right here.

Here is one collaboration that many didn’t see it coming. We didn’t either. Bob Junior, who is known to be more of an entertainer and Roma Mkatoliki who is considered to be a straight A’s Hip Hop Artist and a crusader of “telling it as it is” messages. The collaboration happened and I am hereby presenting it. Listen Up
