About two days ago I was chatting with one of the truest human beings/brothers I know, Brian Haule. Whenever Brian and I chat or talk, two things are certainly to lead our topics; music and life. Him and I come a long way. From the days we used to sit kijiweni in Upanga and count cars to the days we hustled together for education in Uganda.
In our lately conversation we discussed about the whereabouts of some of the old school bongo fleva stars. I remember we mentioned people like OCG[ Remember him with Kazeze?]. Then we wondered where O-Ten is [the dude from Morogoro and East Coast-Upanga]. I am sure if we had gone on and on with our talk, we could have reached Tanga and certainly Wagosi wa Kaya would have been mentioned alongside Joni Woka.
Little did I, or did we know that Joni Woka was cooking something new. What made him stand out from the crowd is his unique style[he goes like a drunk muthe...fu.%%$$ who would say anything]. It was nice creativity then and I believe it still resonates today. His new track is titled Mkora. Ras Lion is featured in this one. Listen Up…and ask yourself…aren’t you a Mkora?Lol
If life was/is a circle, then I think it is fair to say that the circle isn’t complete without regrets. At certain point of your life, you will be disappointed and hurt. No matter what you do to human race, there are fellows that will hurt your feelings to the core. They will see the bad while enjoying the coffee from the very mugs you bought with your sweat. They will walk around telling only the bad while in a real world, you have done so much to uplift them or give them the ground they are now seating on.
Even with all the regrets, what matters is how you handle those regrets and disappointments. I was watching my favorite preacher, Joel Osteen, the other day when his sermon was about remembering the good and forgetting the bad. That is what makes a difference in recycling the circle.
The above sentiment is what is in Mike Tee Feat Juma Nature’s new song Si Uliniona Sina Maana. Yes, some will see huna maana [ I know they can pretend too]. Take a listen from these two legends of Bongo Fleva/Bongo Hip-Hop.
True love is almost unheard of in our times. You are loved with conditions. In most cases, money is a condition. You gotta have plenty of it for me to stay with you or otherwise I am gonna try to catch the next train. So when two people seems to be in love, you can bet one is taking a chance or both. When they tie a knot, you know they have just elevated their chances to the higher level. Of course that is not how it supposed to be. Love is supposed to be pure with no conditions attached. It is more sweet and enjoyable that way.
That is somehow what Belle 9 is coming up with in his new song Wanitaka. Belle 9, in my opinion, is one of the talented singers we have today. He has a good voice and he can control it well.
Here is Wanitaka.
Ney Wa Mitego is known to be a hustler and an artist. His signature is “tell it as it is”. Whether he researches carefully what he puts in his songs or not, doesn’t matter as much as he puts forward his true feelings. I guess it is that honest that keeps his fans base growing bigger. You just gotta stay true to the game…
After Salamu Zao you’d think he will be back with the almost the same style. Nah. He decided to look somewhere else and try something new although his “tell it as it is” signature was never left behind. However, I am a bit hesitant to say this track will do as great as Salamu Zao and Muziki Gani [with Diamond]. But at least with this one we are sure that he won’t need an Attorney soon. He is more calm although jabs are still there. Time to dance Nakula Ujana. That is the new track from Ney Wa Mitego…Listen Up
Recently in the social networks wars, there is #TeamAllyKiba Vs #TeamDiamond. A lot of jabs are thrown in the bucket. Each corner claims their artist is better than the other one. Of course the “Nani Zaidi Kati ya Ally Kiba na Diamond” war-like comments and jabs are caused by Ally Kiba’s silence. For a while, he hasn’t released any single of his own rather than being featured in other artists songs and gigs.
While the fans are waiting to hear something new from Ally Kiba [Diamond is now rolling with his My Number One single], he maintains the anticipation by being featured in yet another artist’s song. He is [with Shetta] hereby featured in Abby Skills new song titled Basi Njoo Kariakoo. Listen Up
I have received this with a PR notes that I saw no need to change. So here we go;
After much anticipation and endless hours of perfecting her next project, Vanessa Mdee is ready to bring you the follow up to the timeless “Closer” released in March of this year. Her new studio recorded track “Come Over” is bound to get your head bobbing as her aim this time around was simply “to make you dance.”
Now we all know when artists like V-Money release music our expectations are always heightened and dare we say, never disappointed. And its no different for the woman who burst onto the Tanzanian music scene as early as December 2012. Having featured on quite a few other local artists tracks, V-Money has been waiting for the perfect time to release her new single which she knows her fans have patiently been waiting for. Inspired by her sister and publicist Marianne Mdee tagline “Hali ni tete nateseka mimi” which translates to “Times are tough, I’m in the struggle” V-Money is sure this track will touch all of you who can relate.
With a well armed talented team behind her including Nahreel: Producer, Mixing and mastering, Gosby Kibanza: Lyrics and Melody, Erasto Machine: Keyboard and Bass Guitar, Team V-Money promises to bring you real music every single time. Debuting on the popular Clouds FM radio show, XXL on November 13, 2013 we encourage you to tune in, crank up the volume and boogie to this work of art for the very first time.
When asked what drives her to not give up in this very competitive industry, V-Money eloquently replied: “Sharing my love of music with you is the best way to convey my message that everything is possible and that we have to live in order for our dreams to come true”
Listen with your soul.

Kuna vipaji na kisha kuna vipaji.Kila siku vinaibuka vipya. Ndio maisha na ndio hali halisi.Upende usipende. Ni mipango ya Mwenyezi Mungu.
Miongoni mwa vipaji ambavyo naviona kabisa ni pamoja na hiki cha msanii mpya mpya anayekwenda kwa jina la jukwaani; Baridi. Sometimes mwaka jana alitoka na wimbo Nipe Nafasi ambao ulienda hewani na kumtambulisha vyema tu kama msanii mwenye uwezo wa kipekee katika kuimba. Yes,yawezekana hukupata nafasi ya kuusikia kwani kama ujuavyo,soko la muziki nalo lina yake. Usijali,unaweza kuusikiliza hapa.
Sasa ili kuthibitisha kwamba uwezo anao na kwamba muziki bado ni chaguo lake kama msanii na njia yake halali ya kuendeleza maisha, Baridi anaachia single yake ya pili. Hii inakwenda kwa jina Ni Wewe ikiwa ni production nyingine kutokea pale Burn Records kwa Sheddy Clever ambaye naye anafanya vizuri katika anga za wapikaji wa muziki.
Usikilize hapa wimbo huu mpya kutoka kwa Baridi…naam Ni Wewe Tu.
