Voice of Maasai presents Najitazama by Vichwa Vya Habari (The Headlines). African Hip Hop/Bongo Flava music group lyrical content is based on inspiring youth to overcome poverty and self-deprecation in Maasailand and Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania. Jessey met up with the group in her recent travels to Arusha and felt they would be a strong addition to the growing label and music repertoire
The Bongo Flava genre developed in the 1990s mainly as a derivative of American hip hop, with additional influences from reggae, R&B, afrobeat, dancehall. The streetstyle is an offshoot from traditional Tanzanian styles such as taarab and dansi, a combination that forms a unique style of music.
