Today Tanzania mourns the death of a Bongo Flava legend, Albert Mangwea who was on his way back from South Africa. Details of his death are still sketchy (though there are unconfirmed reports that he may have had a drug overdose) which just makes this post really difficult for me considering the odds.
We have a vault of Mangwair tracks that we might share over the next few weeks but for today we just want to pay homage, tribute to one of the few artists that helped shape and redefine the Tanzanian Bongo Flava scene. His single “Mikasi” was probably one of the biggest Bongo Flava records in its time.
May his soul rest in peace..
