Barnaba – Sorry

Barnaba_GetMziki_1

Have you ever listened to a record and half way through the song been like I can’t stand this song, then fast foward a few months down the line you listen to the record and something about it draws you to it. Well this is one of those records.

The first time I heard Sorry, I thought the chorus was cheesy, monotonous and annoying. However, today when I was going through my music folder I listened to the track again, watched the video and immediately knew Barnaba had to get his first official solo post on the site.

I know I’ll get some hits from some my fellow music enthusiasts on why I’m posting the record. However when this suddenly becomes a record getting consistenT playtime on your music playlist, don’t say I didn’t tell you so.

AY Feat Marco Chali- Party Zone (GetMziki Exclusive*****)

Even after more than 10 years of being in the music industry, Tanzania AY is still reinventing himself and staying relevant in the ever changing profession. He recently released this new club banger party zone which bangs heavy with synth-driven melodies courtesy of producer Marco Chali.

Fans of AY will undoubtedly rock to this track heavily. Diversity and knowing what his fans need, keep AY on

top. I see this joint getting heavy rotation in the streets, radio and clubs.

The song title says it all. All I'm gonna say is “Bang Bang”. Like they would say in Tanzania, ” Mziki na video zote kali”.

Shetta Feat Diamond – Nidanganye

Here is a good example of where promoting artists also has it limitations. All I can find about Tanzanian artist Shetta is that he's one of the first rising R & B stars in Bongo Music. For all the listeners out there not from East Africa, “Nidanganye” means “lie to me”.

This track is definitely a dance floor jam. Considering that the music industry has no minimum qualifications for entry

and with everyone and their friends getting into the music industry, only time will tell about Shetta's longevity in the Bongo music scene.

Let's wait and see if we get more jammin records from Shetta.

Enjoy!!!!!

Shaa – Shoga (**GetMziki Artist Spotlight)

We have tons of tracks from Shaa and have had discussions among ourselves about how great her songs are and the way she has a bright future in Bongo music. With everything else we try to accomplish, we sadly enough haven’t really posted any tracks from her until now.

Sarah Kaisi, now commonly known as Shaa, is a 24 year old talented Tanzanian, who grew up in a musical family with her debut album being in early 2004 with the group “Wakilisha” of the East Africa Coca Cola Pop stars. The album had the hit single “Hoi” but after a while she left the group and went to Washington DC to further her studies. In October 2008, she landed herself a major record deal with Tanzania’s MJ Records and recorded her first solo album “Zamu Yangu” which means “It’s my turn”, since everybody in her former group had released albums apart from her.

Her music is a fusion of Zouk, Reggae and Bongo Flava . She was last year nominated for the the Best Newcomer of The Year category at the 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) and was also just recently signed to Rockstar 4000 Music Entertainment – the African continent’s first Pan African 360 Music & Entertainment Company and Record Label.

Her past hit singles include “Pambazuka” with AY, “Mtimanyongo” with Langa and “Mafundi”. The Song “Shoga” has slowly but surely been climbing the charts in most bongo radio station countdowns and with this track, she definitely cements her place in Bongo music for the long haul. Make sure to also check out the video for the beautiful backgrounds and “African Authenticity”. If this is the first time you’re hearing about Shaa, be ready to hear tons of her amazing work in the next coming years. Enjoy!!!

Diamond- Mbagala


We get tons of music from Alvin who is our main Tanzania source. I know he has come through tons of times when we either looking for bongo tracks or videos and we really appreciate all the “goodies” he sends us.

He slid the GetMziki team this single a couple of weeks ago and I have been marinating and bumping to this track for a while now. I’m always amazed at how some East African artists market their music, right from their bio, promo pics and press releases. Its like they “hide” all that info and expect people to search for it. I have goggled about “Diamond” a couple of times now and there’s not so much info about him. All I know is that the kid got heat!!!!

More Info: We are getting more info about Diamond. He is signed to Ali Kiba’s record company Sharoballo records and his first single was “Kamwambie”. Both this songs were produced by Bob Junior a singer turned producer.

I haven’t really heard any other tracks from him but if he keeps on releasing music like “Mbagala” this kid is the future of Tanzania R & B. The song is one of those “feel good tracks” that stick in your head just after one listen. On the song he talks about how he misses love based purely on romance instead of the “financial” romance type. The videos is also straight “authentic” where they showcase the streets and towns in a unique way. Check out the “garbage dump” scene in the video that truly captures the uniqueness of the track.

Enjoy this track that will soon be in your favorite top 10 tracks of 2010.

Ney Wa Matego – Itafahamika Tu

ney wa mitego2

It’s Monday, so it’s time to start the week right by showcasing some new emerging talent from Tanzania. This song is huge in Tanzania as we speak and I’m sure the tons of bongo readers on the site will enjoy this one. Its funny that with all the technology in the world today in terms of file sharing, you still have to “look” for that raw, street, grimy music that takes you back to the C.R.E.A.M days.

Upcoming artists have tons of options when in the studio crafting hits and also trying to figure out ideas of how to penetrate the music industry. They also know what works and what doesn’t since they have studied all the greats before them. Some artists take the “let me diss” them route while some artists go on the “let me hustle” route. Ney Wa Matego picks the former option and goes hard on a couple of Bongo artists like Bwana Misosi, Sister P and Inspekta Haroun.

According to Nay, the track is not a diss track but rather a challenge to the artists to improve on their lyrical skills and start making songs that reflect the changing times. He said that some of the artists mentioned in the song were his role models and he was just trying to keep them re-energized, since some of then were drifting down their original musical paths. To prove that he had no ill feelings, he’s done a remix to the song with a couple of the artists that he mentions on the track.

For those who enjoy that street music, listen to the lyrics.
