Our dear friends at Kwanza Jamii Production secured an exclusive interview with Tanzanian Designer based in Atlanta, Georgia. She covers everything from her from what made her want to be in the world of fashion and trends to her personal life. Here we go..
Unfortunately the interview is in Swahili. That means non-swahili speakers will miss out a bit.

US President,Barack Obama has taken a tour of the Bob Marley museum in Jamaica after becoming the first US president to visit the country since 1982.
According to BBC, Mr Obama was shown around the sprawling house in Kingston that was Mr Marley’s final home.
The US president said he was a fan of the musician, telling his museum guide: “I still have all the albums.”
Mr Obama is in Jamaica to meet the 15-member Caribbean Community bloc.
But his first stop after landing in Kingston was the old Victorian-style house in central Kingston that Mr Marley called home between 1975 and his death in 1981.
Mr Obama spent 20 minutes in the museum, which now houses artefacts from the singer’s life including gold records and his Grammy Lifetime Achievement award.
His arrival aboard Air Force One on Wednesday made him the first sitting US president to set foot in the country since Ronald Reagan visited 33 years ago.
He was greeted by Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson-Miller and the US Ambassador to Jamaica, Luis Moreno.
Mr Obama will meet representatives of the 15 countries in the Caribbean Community group on the three-day trip to Jamaica and Panama, and is expected to discuss energy and security issues.
I read somewhere that divorce is one among three things feared most by human beings. I guess you can get the rest. I can think of death right away. Even though they say it’s the sure way to heaven if you have done well on earth, the idea scares hell out of me.
I don’t want to suggest Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa got cold feet with the idea of a paperwork separating their affair, but I am sure it must have crossed their minds. Whether it was a motivator in their rumpling decision or not, it’s immaterial. They are back together and are said to be deep in love-again.
In the end, love has won. The two lovebirds are back together. The words pushing across each other have come to an end. He cheated. Amber doesn’t care. Not anymore. She loves her tattooed man and father to their child.
Theirs is a love story from Hollywood where divorces are equal to money exchange. Show biz can be an outright war. The wind blows you when there is no wind. It’s a strategy. You can be married tonight and be single the next morning. You don’t even have time to feel insulted. Life goes on. Call them confused and crazily furious. It’s black and yellow all over again!
Last week, President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete spoke at Wilson Centre in Washington DC. He used that rare opportunity and honour to highlight some of his achievements and the challenges he has faced since he took office almost 10 years ago. It’s an interesting narration of how he sees things now as opposed to 10 years ago. It’s like he just got new reading glasses and they bear the tag HD.
With just couple of months to go before he handles the torch to the coming president, Kikwete also shared his views on critical issues such as governance, democracy, prospect for Africa’s development and many more. He also shared a bit of what he is planning to do when his title start bearing the word “retired”.
Of course with no clear evidence [at least to a common man’s perspective] of how his “Maisha Bora Kwa Kila Mtanzania” campaign platform in 2005 has come to realization, you can tell from his face he has a different story at heart. I guarantee you if he was to run the whole campaign all over again, the slogan would be different. It would be of a more sensible and practical nature. No wonder he “warned” folks aspiring to replace him that Ikulu is no wonderland.
But history has unusual way of judging people. He can bank on that as we wait for another Presidential candidate to utter political platitudes and comforting words that are meant for rallies and campaigns only. Politicians have a way around promises.
Here is the video of that occasion; Don’t forget to share
I grew up listening to Charles Hillary. To me, and to everyone else, he was the master broadcaster. Back then TV was such a luxury item to some of us. You could count using one hand how many households had TV sets. Radio was enough to bring a whole street together. We didn’t even care as much that TVs were black and white mostly and Live matches on TV was a day dream where you wake up and can’t remember day or time.
Special days were when two rival teams; Yanga and Simba were playing. You wanted to listen to Charles Hillary and his crew “showing” you how the match was going through national broadcasting company Radio Tanzania Dar-es-salaam [RTD]. It was a little comfort we all could afford.
Now that he is going back to Tanzania after years abroad to join Azam TV, I’m excited on his behalf and fellow soccer fans. I wish him all the best. Here comes one of the finest.
In Tanzania, Ray C is no longer the same “kiuno bila mfupa” artist we grew up admiring and dancing to her tunes. A lot has happened and for her they are all matters of public record. She has also been kind enough to share even the juiciest parts of her struggle for the benefit of others.
Although she is no longer anywhere near the A-list, her life story is an inspiration. Her well-documented [thanks to social media] struggles with drug addiction and weight and how she battles them is something worth anyone’s attention, prayers and support. She is a symbol of hope to anyone struggling with similar challenges.
No wonder folks at Kenya’s True Love magazine have tapped her to cover their April issue with an exclusive interview. Here is the cover.
Mwishoni mwa wiki taasisi isiyo ya kiserikali ya Imetosha Foundation iliandaa matembezi ya amani kupinga mauaji ya watu wenye albinism nchini Tanzania kitu ambacho kimekuwa kiipaka matope Tanzania. Hizi hapa chini ni baadhi ya picha kutoka katika matembezi hayo ambayo yalivuta wengi na kuwakumbusha wajibu uliopo miongoni mwetu katika kukomesha tabia hizi ambazo zinaambatana na imani potofu za kishirikina.Matembezi hayo yalianzia Viwanja vya Leaders Kinondoni na kuishia Viwanja Vya Biafra Kinondoni.

She was the victim of a death-hoax this week. Rumors spread like a wildfire that she has passed away. It was untrue. She isn’t even sick. Someone had just decided to “kill” her. Well…she came out with a usual beautiful smile and assured Tanzanians through reporters that she is fine and kicking.
We wish her a Long Life. Long Live Mama Maria Nyerere.
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.
