Voice of Maasai presents Vichwa Vya Habari (The Headlines) the African Hip Hop/Bongo Flava music group whose lyrical content is based on inspiring youth to overcome poverty and self-deprecation in Maasailand and Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania.
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, and traditional Tanzanian styles such as taarab and dansi, a combination that forms a unique style of music.
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.
Nyenza Emcee is a freestyle rapper and D-One is singer/rapper both based out of Arusha Tanzania.
