Mubelwa Bandio(Kulia) akiwa katika mahojiano na DJ Joe CatDaddy
Ukiwa katika viunga vya Washington DC nchini Marekani na ukatokea kutega radio yako kwenye 93.9 FM WKYS unaweza kukuta aliyepo mitamboni ni Joseph Mgaza au kwa wengi DJ Joe CatDaddy. DJ Joe ni mtanzania ambaye kwa miaka zaidi ya 17 sasa amekuwa akifanya kazi katika kituo cha radio cha Kiss (93.9 WKYS). Ni miongoni mwa DJs ambao vipindi vyao husikilizwa zaidi kitu ambacho ni ishara tosha kwamba anafanya vizuri sana.
Rafiki yangu Mubelwa Bandio ambaye wengi tunamuita Mzee wa Changamoto hivi karibuni alifanya naye mahojiano ambayo ameyaweka pia katika mtandao wake wa Changamoto.
Hii hapa ni video ya mahojiano hayo.
Did you know that Flaviana Matata is/was the first celebrity from Tanzania to grant this blog/site an interview? The idea of creating a blog/site that focuses on celebrities from Tanzania while focusing on their positives rather than negatives was new. BC had just started. Few knew us or even believe in what we could deliver and stand for.
Flaviana and her Manager, Maria Sarungi thought it was a good platform and granted me an exclusive interview. At that time, Flaviana was Miss Universe Tanzania and had just secured the 6th spot in Miss Universe 2007 competition which was held in Mexico City, Mexico. The world was so obsessed with her bald-head. Everyone was talking about her.
Since then I have done lots of interviews and we are still rocking. Press here to read a lot more.
Vanessa Mdee a.k.a Vee
She has seen the world. She has hosted shows across the globe. She has walked on red carpets all over the world while interviewing and interacting with some of the globally recognized and loved celebrities. Simply put it this way; she lives her dream.
Her name is Vanessa Mdee, a 24 year old who is also known as Vee among her friends and fans. In 2007, when she was just 19 years old, Vee made history by becoming the first ever MTV VJ from Tanzania. Today, she is one of the most recognized VJs in Africa and even beyond the African borders.
As if being a VJ is not enough, Vee is also a DJ/ Host of “The Hit List” show at Choice FM broadcasting from Mikocheni in Dar-es-salaam. That’s not all; Vee is a HIV/AIDS Activist, Model, Motivational Speaker and MC. Recently, she added the title Singer/ Musician to her long and ever growing resume.
Vanessa, a graduate of The Catholic University Of Eastern Africa where she studied Law, is passionate about everything she does. You can feel the energy in her veins through the discipline and ethics she places into all that she does. She is a humanitarian who deeply believes in Africa as the future.
I recently had a chance to interview her. Here are the excerpts;
BC: Hi Vanessa, I can’t even put it well how happy I am to have this opportunity to interview you. Welcome to BC. How are you doing?
VEE: I’m sound so well Thank YOU – how you feeling? Thanks so much for taking the time.
BC: When I was researching for this interview, at certain point I think I got shocked. At this young age, it seems like you have achieved and have been involved in a lot. I, therefore, guess my first question should be how do you manage to do that you are doing and involved with? You must have excellent time and organizational management skills! Tell me about it…
VEE: Thanks, it’s funny when it’s all put down on paper it feels like a whole lot but I’m just getting started. I really do have my parents to thank for the discipline. Our household was one of rules and curfews, pleases and thank You’s. Until the age of 18 it was mandatory for my siblings and I to be in bed by 11pm – not one minute later. I hated it then but I get it now. Structure is vital.
BC: You were (and I suppose still is) Tanzania’s first ever MTV VJ. I believe that was a dream that came true since you always wanted to be on TV…can you remind our readers how did that come about? How was the process?
VEE: Man, working for MTV is still so much fun for me, still the most amazing opportunity, still as challenging and thrilling as it was when I won the nationwide VJ search in 2007. I woke up one day and my best friend Salha had decided that it was mine to have – so we auditioned. The rest is history as they say.
BC: The bio that is posted on MTV website, clearly put forward a picture of you as a devoted activist as far as HIV/AIDS is concerned. You are actually a UNAIDS Youth Ambassador. How did you that come about? Did you come across a personal tragedy around the issue that motivated you to act or it was/ is purely out of humanity trace?
Here is the Official HD video for the song Skibobo from Goldie that features our own,AY. You can also listen to the audio version here.
You may recall back in July this year, I posted these photos of the video shoot of one of Miriam’s Chemmoss songs from her new/upcoming album “LOVEBIRD”. Here is the best of the news. The video is ready and Miriam has released it. What an early Christmas present for all music fans across the world.
Her new album will be available in most digital stores worldwide from 01/07/2013. Here is the video for Love In Reverse. Enjoy
When asked if she gotta anything to say about this video, Miriam said;
This was an amazing shoot, a team-effort involving many of my supporters and the most amazing, passionate team of artists I’ve ever worked with. I’m so grateful for the experience.
