Born in Denmark and breed in Tanzania Espen Sorensen is probably one of the few foreign artists to come out of East Africa that I think has established a solid brand for his performance acts. His artist name already raises so many questions to locals who adore and love him because they cant believe this white man can sing and flow in their local dialect. I guess thats why they labelled him Crazy White Man – Mzungu Kichaa.
His debut album which is under his record label Caravan Records seems to be an instant hit both in Tanzania (East Africa) and in his native country also Denmark. Looking at his performances on youtube I see he loves the guitar and the whole acoustics soul thing with swahili that I totally dig – I can say Mzungu Kichaa is a true entertainer. The guy is already over accomplished, having performed alongside virtually every big artists and band in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Zanzibar – I don’t know what else to expect from him.
A few weeks ago we debuted this video on our homepage – but very few people go to our homepage (index). (Does anyone really care that GetMziki has been on Beta testing for like 1 year now ha ha ha, we really should move things around here to proper directories and destinations lol) Either way – now that the song is out and is getting airplay in South Africa, Kenya and parts of Nigeria – we thought why not share it with the world… Professor Jay is always a blessing on any track so I wont talk about him, but I gotta say that soul stress Mwasiti can really blow/sing I totally love those vocals… more please?
