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.
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
Here is the new video for the song Nashindwa from Christian Bella. You can download the song by following this link
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.
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.
Here is a story of two talented artists; Linex and Diamond. Their lives’ crossroads meets when one goes to school with a beautiful young lady. He falls in love but like the best striker who fails to score, his team comes short. She moves on. Life can take anyone anywhere.
Years later as he can’t get over her, he go into a mission searching for her. He is doing better with his life in the city. His money [though not much] is his weapon. He also hopes to cultivate from the little moments he spent with her around books and pens. As they say, you can put anything into a salad.
He is late. The lady is now married. He is in shock and disappointment. She is still as beautiful as she was. He sings about her [Salima]
A great song…from Linex Feat. Diamond Platinumz. Here are audio and video.
Without a doubt, they are a successful story from Tanzania. They are kids. They come from literally nothing to something bigger than their dreams. Just last week they winded up their first UK Tour. It was a huge success according to organizers and fans that attended their shows.
In the midst of tours and shows, Yamoto Band seems to be even hungrier for success and dominance in chart shows. They are expanding their range of skills. Here comes their next chapter. The new song is titled Mpaka Nizikwe (literal translation…till I Am Buried)

If music could be compared with boxing, Ali Kiba’s new single Chekecha Cheketua would be an appropriate reminder (and literal comparison) of the December 8th, 2012 boxing match between rival boxers Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Márquez that was later named Fight Of The Year and Knockout Of The Year by Ring Magazine.
With just one second remaining into the sixth round, Márquez threw a punch that not only gave him a much-needed victory but also a knockout that almost ended Manny Pacquiao’s career. It was a punch of a lifetime. Márquez was determined right there to win it all. He did. There was no need for a count or throwing in a towel. It was a clear and jubilant win for the Mexican and an embarrassing loss for a Filipino.
From the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada to the shores of Africa, you could see how Pacquiao’s fans were looking for places to hide their faces. They were glancing about for help, an exit, or escape. His wife was hysterical. His Mother was praying for his life. Everyone was. His fans couldn’t believe what had just happened! There was plenty of head shaking voicing denial. They all felt a sudden coldness that hits at the core. The s*%t was real.
We can argue that music is no boxing. Of course. But with Chekecha Cheketua, without any doubt, Ali Kiba has thrown a “Márquez”. The only difference in his killer punch is that, it is expected from an artist like Kiba. The King. He proved he is worthy every inch of attention when Mwana came out. He is now on it again to protect his supremacy.
One thing that seems to be clear to me as I finished listening to Chekecha Cheketua for 10th time [that is my rule when I want to review a new song-listen to it 10 times] is that Ali Kiba isn’t competing with anyone. I know there is or have been suggestions that he is competing with other artists. He ain’t, in my opinion. There is an incredible energy behind his skills. With songs like Mwana,Chekecha Cheketua and his other classics like Dushelele, Mapenzi Yana Run Dunia, Cinderella etc, he is now on his own league, revolution and mission.
Here is Chekecha Cheketua. Download It. Ask Your Friends To Do The Same. It was produced at Cheidaz Records by Aby Daddy. Guitar by Loso.
