I figured I might as well post this song after the hot summer jam I posted from Ngwea below. This track came out about 4 to 5 years ago titled Kimya Kimya. Its a complete sample off GAME and 50 Cents hate it or love it which for kicks I have posted below too, however what I wanted to prove is that Africa can sample beats and make them sound FRESHER than the original tracks. I also wanted to demonstrate what an awesome producer P-Funk is.
Kimya Kimya ruled the Tanzanian radio waves for months before it was retired but on my ipod its always on heavy rotation. Enjoy coz these types of tunes dont happen everyday.

I am always excited to hear new music from Ngwea and anything produced by P-Funk. Bongo Records is at it again. Real Talk though I think P-Funk is still the pioneer of Bongo Flava in the region. I have often said its safe to gauge where Bongo Flava is headed based on what type of music he will put out. This track here is a testament to that truth. As much as there are new comers into the scene mainly people like LEMAR and other old school giants like Ambrose (Mandugu). I still feel like there is something unique that P-Funk brings to the game thats always like a game changer. I will explain my thoughts at a later post not today.
For today I feel blessed to know that my posse Chamba Squad is still doing well and killing it on the mic. Ngwea has had hits for days, he is the artists behind “She got it Gwan“, he is also the man behind “Mikasi” and one of my favorite tracks that I need to post soon ” Kimya Kimya” . With that kind of track record you cant expect anything less from the Chamber Squad pioneer.
I’ve spent a gang of time with the crew back in my youth (makes me feel Old) ha ha ha but back in my hay days I used to sit in the corner with my blunt in my hand with the crew – am old school now. heres proof of that.
Anyway good times, good times. heres some heat from Ngwea – the track is not really new it dropped sometime last yeah in July/August but its been making the rounds in East Africa this week so we thought to give it a spin today.

Lets get back to our regular programming – Last week we were still on the journey to Tanzania, so I didn’t really get to debut all these hot TZ songs we had. So please be patient with us this week as we push all the HOT NEW BONGO tracks that we have been incubating. Having Alvin on the team just creates a bottle neck of tracks that we need to figure out how to publish.
That said – last week I was busy giving praise about how LEMAR is the new star producer in Tanzania. It’s as if P-Funk Majani heard me and quickly put this crazy Q-Chief (now known as Q-Chilla) track thats just off the charts. Its easier for me to talk about production when it comes to Tanzanian music because I honestly don’t know much about the current local acts. However Q-Chief is one person I know and had the pleasure of meeting but I doubt he would remember me. One of my good friends was responsible for putting Q-Chief on the map way back in the day – he produced and wrote “Namtafuta” Chiefs first single which was an instant hit. Today no one really remembers or recalls what Miku did but some of us who were there behind the scenes remember very well.
Either way this is all relative today because the man seems to be able to stand on his own. His vocals are on point his swagger back on track and he is just churning out hits after hit. This track which features Ngwea is just a classic – bless your years to this Bongo Records production.
