Its time we took it back to the streets. This time we take it to Tanzania with a street anthem from Prof Jay called “Msilie”. The new single featuring Bongo heavy weight Chidi Benz was produced by Lamar at Fishcrab records. For those who are into production, listen to the intro where it draws you in instantly and the various change up’s in the beat. Hot!!!!
Prof Jay who is currently touring the US, has been featured before on GetMziki and his music catalog is so huge to really name all the classics he has. He’s a pioneer in the Bongo Music scene and many artists look up to him as a guide of making it in the music industry. Just to vent a little bit, I get so mad when promoters bring African based artists for tours in the US and always insist on “promoting” thier shows by using one or two of thier current songs and videos as the “template” of the artist’s music, which really blinds the average consumer into thinking that the artists only have those songs in thier music catalog. I’ve seen it so many times on Facebook and promoters websites and it’s a trend that is really hurting the artists, while in fact most of the artists have tons of hit songs on thier belt.
If you really follow Bongo music, you already know the weight Prof. Jay holds in Tanzania. The awards he has won are also just to many to mention but include the 2004 Tanzania Music Awards for Best Hip Hop Album “Mapinduzi Halisi”, the 2006 Tanzania Music Awards for Best Song “Nikusaidiaje”, the 2007 Kisima Music Awards for Best Ugandan Song “Sivyo Ndiviyo” with Chameleone, the 2009 Tanzania Music Awards for Best Songwriter and many more.
This track is an anthem in the streets and although its not your typical “club track” it’s a great record. For all the people out there who still like “non radio” station playlist songs and like that street edgy music, enjoy this one. Listen to the lyrics on this song to really appreciate the track.
