This year has proven to be different for Tanzania. The unity that seemed to escape the nation is back and we have seen the results. Everyone is proud again to be Tanzanian and support fellow Tanzanians. Of course this doesn’t mean we no longer have differences of opinions, tastes and preferences. We just choose to ignore them when it comes to anything with Tanzania’s name on the line.
As the only Tanzania representative remaining in the Big Brother Africa house, he is asking for your help. He needs to stay in the house. Wouldn’t it be great if he won USD 300,000 and bring it all back to Tanzania? For sure that would be nice. As you know, other nations are voting too. But as we are asking them to help keep Idris in the house, we need to lead by example. See the image above. Go ahead and vote. Tell your friends to vote too. Please don’t do it later. Do it now.Thanks

A sad reality that many must face in relationships is that we can’t control what our mates do. Even though you might do your best to fulfill their needs, ultimately it’s up to them if they’re going to be faithful. But, if fidelity is simple as it seems? Is it merely just a choice, or are some people more prone to infidelity? Is there a science behind it?
Well, thanks to the study of many scientists, psychologists, and sociologist, I brought you all 14 studies that dissected fidelity and the myths along with it. Remember, that with science all these things are theories, and it’s not indicative of every person that you date/marry. But, the more you know…

I am not very sure if this is the kind of music Izzo B should stick with. I have known him as one of the conscious artists. At least that is how he emerged into the scene.
Regardless, here is his latest single titled Haina Kufeli featuring G-Nako from Weusi. Follow the link below for downloading.
It has been a while since I saw Kitangoma Magazine. I actually thought the magazine was no longer in production. I guess I was wrong. The new issue is here.

Here are some images and quotes from the exclusive he gave Kitangoma. What do you think? Ali is the King?
There is a lot going on around Lady Jaydee right now. She recently re-launched the eatery and pub M.O.G as well as The Lady Jaydee & The Band [formerly known as Machozi Band]. She has done all that on top the swirling rumors and headlines about her marriage to long time manager and husband, Gardner G.Habash. It is widely reported and speculated that the two are no longer Mr.&Mrs. There are even rumors of pending court proceedings filed by Gardner who is back on radio at 93.7Efm.

Our brothers and sisters in the USA [from the days of their ancestors] have had a long history of struggle. For them, equality and justice are two things they have fought for over 400 years. To this day,whenever anything attached to race relations happens, it easily makes it to national news [although a lot goes unreported for whatever reasons]. It is a struggle. Although things may be different now compared to 1960s, their struggle lives on. They just have different shapes and forms. It’s now more systemic rather than dogs ushered at protesters in the streets of Harlem etc.
When I was introduced to American History many years ago, one of the names that stood out for me was/is Malcolm X. I went on to read anything about him including the famous book; Autobiography of Malcolm X which has become the cornerstone of his life. To me, Malcolm X became a symbol of being “real”. He inspired me to call a spade a spade whenever I was supposed to. If I ever became an activist, he certainly played a role. He was fearless. He was a revolutionary who loved his people[and even people beyond USA].
Compared to other activists such as Dr.Martin Luther King, his story is not as popular. His stance was considered “radical”. He called people names. He was angry and he meant “business” by any means necessary. When you stand as high and shouts as louder as he did, history [written by men and women] can make a choice of eliminating you. Your history belongs to secluded or hidden sections of the libraries if you are lucky to be published.
In helping to keep his story alive [and what he stood for] here is Make It Plain a 1994 PBS documentary that highlights his story mostly told by the people who knew and worked closely with him at some point before he was assassinated in that cold February 1965 day.

Khanga, our tradition. It’s not just a mere piece of cloth.It’s more than that. A powerful tool of communication. If you ask me, nothing tops the power of unspoken words than khanga. If you walk in and she is dressed in a single khanga, she is saying something. It’s up to a man to understand her unspoken language.A neighborhood can go into the frenzy of stories just because of what was/is written on the khanga she wore. She didn’t utter a word but her khanga said everything.
I was carried around in a Khanga.It was a child carrier of our time and it still play the role. As I grew up I learnt that khanga can cool you down or warm you up. It’s as if it is made to pamper, protect and preserve. Mind blowing perfection. A social lion? Through khanga, you can acquire skills and even wisdom. I am serious.
Khanga can speak louder than the surf before you. A single piece can make you laugh, smile or cry. If you find another man wearing your better half’s khanga, you have lost the war. A new king is in town. Act like you are provoked and hope murder won’t be the charge.
I thought a lot about Khanga as I was reading Sandra Mushi’s latest book, Stains On My Khanga. I have followed Sandra’s writings for years. She is a hell of a writer with amazing witty and perspective. In Stains On My Khanga, she takes it to another level. The pure genius of a writer’s mind come alive. In this book, Sandra goes deep than ever before. She reminds the readers about everything. From life at high end to life in the hood. She uses metaphors to present life like you have never known it before. It all come from Stains On My Khanga. In my opinion, this is the electrifying lure of brilliance.
But where did the stains come from? What does it mean when Khanga has stains? Is it still valuable? You can be part of the growing list of Stains On My Khanga proud owners. You can [and seriously you should if a good book is on your November list] join in by purchasing her book now available on and offline. In Dar-es-salaam, you can get your copy at A Novel Idea-Slipway, Soma Cafe-Regent Estate and www.hadithimedia.com
Well done Sandra. Keep the good books coming.
