T.I…Photo Credit: Rap-Up.com

I have a different opinion when it comes to American artists performing out of their zone and in Africa to be specific. I am known to be a guy who enjoys standing somewhere with no double standards. I am talking about Visa, Criminal Records, international travels etc. If artists such as MwanaFA, A.Y, Professor Jay etc had known and publicized criminal convictions, there is no way the US Immigration Authorities would have granted them Visas to the US. In the opposite, T.I will be turning it up in Tanzania on 18th October 2014…no problemaaa…you see? Now you know where I stand.

Regardless, I am one of T.I fans. I enjoy his lyrics and his entire persona as an artist who faces every kind of life challenges. The news I want to present is that T.I is heading to Tanzania,East Africa for the finale of the annual concert series titled Fiesta. The peak concert is scheduled to happen in Dar-es-salaam at the Leaders Club on Saturday, 18th October 2014.

T.I is heading to Tanzania to add the list of American artists that have performed in Tanzania before including Jay Z, Fat Joe,Ludacris, 50 Cent [and G-Unit], and others. He is heading to Tanzania when his new album, Paperwork, is coming out. The album has hard stuff from T.I with hit songs such as No Mediocre and About Money. Some of the artists collaboration includes artists such as Usher,Pharrel, Chris Brown,Rick Ross, Jeezy Boosie just to name a few.

Now if someone if planning to attend this year’s Fiesta, here is a taste of what T.I can do on stage. See the performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Here is the cover for T.I’s new album Paperwork

After a long wait with streets and community circles full of anticipatory adrenaline, BC can exclusively confirm the good news. Diamond Platinumz, the 2014 BET Awards nominee and currently international flag bearer of Bongo Fleva genre is set and fired up for his first concerts on Canadian soil in Toronto on SATURDAY 27th SEPTEMBER 2014 and Montreal on SUNDAY, 28th SEPTEMBER 2014. You are therefore allowed to feel even a little bit aggressive, overly excited and up on your toes. Why not?

What makes this concert very unique is that DIAMOND PLATINUMZ will not hit the stage alone. He will be accompanied by his Wasafi Dancers. That doesn’t close the chapter. Alongside Diamond, some of Africa’s greatest performers, JOSE CHAMELEONE [Uganda], Dr. CLAUDE [Burundi], KIDUM [Kenya/Burundi] and KNOWLES [Rwanda] will share the same stage.

The Toronto Concert will take place at the Danforth Music Hall located at 147 Danforth Avenue East with doors opening at 5pm with the buzzing entertainment all the way till 11:30pm. The Montreal concert will be hosted at the historical Le Petit Olympia located at 1004 Catherine Est.

In charge of MC’ing will be MC Bonde one of the well respected MCs from G 98.7 FM. DJ Mahito and DJ Puff from New York City will be on machines to give you an increase in heartbeat and rate of respiration with nothing but great music.

This concert is sponsored by AfroNation 2014 and it will be a great opportunity to celebrate and promote African culture, music and appreciation of African  artists as well as encouraging wide participation of a diverse community and the promotion of multiculturalism. You can’t miss this one!

If you own a vehicle, you know the feeling when something doesn’t sound or seem to be well the moment you hit the road. It’s a mind wrenching experience. What is it this time? How much is it going to cost? Do I have any money left for that? I have just paid kids’ school fees and annual rent…phew! The tiny sweat on your forehead indicates you are loosing it. Pressure is mounting. Your heart is trying hard but you can feel it failing as minutes go by. Next thing you know, at the middle of the road in a heavy morning traffic jam, your car stops. In a panic, you try to crank it up. Nothing happens. You are screwed. The honks and yell follows…What’s wrong with you? Get out of the way…crazy world.

The good news; you can avoid all that by having your vehicle properly[ and on time] serviced and maintained. It’s a good habit like brushing your teeth/mouth. You can start this weekend by attending the first and one of the kind Automobile Clinic 2014. See the poster below. I’m gonna be there with my Red,tinted moose…

Kipi Sijasikia na Tatu Chafu

The Heavy Weight MC, Professor Jay, seems to have found extra energy on everything. If I was to put him against a Duracell’s Bunny, I am sure the Bunny will quit in first round. It’s back to back for him.

This weekend, Saturday 13th September 2014 at Ten Lounge [formerly known as Letasi Lounge] located at Business Park Victoria, Prof. will be launching not one but TWO videos for his recent hit singles, Kipi Sijasikia and Tatu Chafu. Prof…of course will perform Live alongside other surprise performance and celebrities appearances. You gotta be G!

If you keep up with your calendar like how E channels keeps up with The Kardashians, you probably know that its the same day TBE Floyd “Money” Mayweather will be defending his title[s] against Argentinian Maidana. You will also be able to watch that fight from the same venue! That gotta be an awesome event.

The headline is all I wanted to write. However, being a writer makes your heart and mind race a bit faster…Yes, almost like a car trying to win Nascar championship. You know the impatience of a challenger, right?

With a quick intake of breath like someone about to plunge into icy water, I gotta say this; Wema and her boo’s mom looks great together. I am hesitating to call her mother-in-law because I was born in in 70s and therefore big part of me still believe in proper procedures. That’s me though. Now if you can lit a cigarette, inhale deeply and hope that bluff would fly away.

Wema isn’t afraid anymore of what people would think or say. If she had once sensed love at a far distance and never dared to approach it, that fear is gone. With nothing but love, let’s wish them all the best. If you have a beep that could save life…keep it to yourself. Wait. Be patient.

It was Mama Naseeb’s [she doesn't call him Diamond] birthday. While her son was dropping two videos in her honor, Diamond’s boo made sure Mom feels extra happy. And that’s what is turning this volume up while turning on the softness.

With almost all eyes and ears to Brazil for the ongoing 2014 FIFA World Cup, it’s easy [especially for men] to forget or ignore what is more important than anything else on earth; FAMILY. It can end up to be as disastrous for you like an over crowded movie theater when the games are over[July 13] and you no longer have someone to share your “soccer” views with.

Good thing is, there are activities that can involve the whole family. Dad can squeeze himself where the TV screens are while Mom can easily relax in a friendly bar or simmering her legs into the pool while Kids can do whatever they want [except not playing with a kerosene lantern] or show you the latest moves of selfies if not Kitorondo.

Here is the event you don’t wanna miss. FAMILY POOL PARTY AT ESCAPE this coming Sunday 22nd June,2014. DJ Choka will be there!

Na MOblog, Zanzibar

MOJA ya vitu ambavyo wazanzibari watakumbuka ni jinsi kundi la Kenya ambalo hivi karibuni liliibuka kundi bora katika MTV Base lilivyovamia jukwaa na kuendesha shoo ya saa moja na nusu iliyokuwa na uhakika.

Kundi hilo lenye watu watano wakiongozwa na mtia sauti Bien Baraza liliwaacha hoi wazanzibari waliofurika katika ukumbi wa Mambo uliopo ndani ya Ngome Kongwe na muziki wenye mahadhi ya Afro Pop.

Muziki huo ambao uliwateka vijana kutokana na midundo yake na maneno ya kuchombeza ulionesha kwanini MTV Base walisema ni kundi bora.
