Singer Zuchu Quits Bongo Flava

Singer Zuchu Quits Bongo Flava

Tanzania is slowly and sreadily building another genre of music that over the years has been ignored and seen as low-life street music.

Singeli is the name of this breathe taking and energy draining song that will always get everyone shaking what their mama gave them on the dance floor and most at times the dance floor is always full of dust and chaos. They call it “disco vumbi”.

Disco vumbi gave platform to singeli when the likes of Sholo Mwamba, Man Fongo and Msaga Sumu held on to it tight while it was still underground. It isn’t as underground now as you might expect. In Tanzania, singeli has become mainstream, like music by Drake or Kendrick Lamar.

WCB signee Zuchu has joined the list of singers who have embraced singeli with her new single “Nyumba Ndogo” produced by Dj Sisso who has been a pioneer of this great sound.

Playing a bracing barrage of blips, bells and breakneck beats that could blast apart a heart-rate monitor Dj Sisso’s artistically lays down his skills on “Nyumba Yangu” track to perfectly blend with Zuchu’s voice and lyrics.

The song comes a day after Zuchu shared a screenshot of her conversation with the Wasafi manager, Sallam Sk Mendez asking her to release a new song this week.

“Nyumba Yangu” joins the list of singeli songs in Tanzania that are currently doing well including but not limited to Marioo’s “Nakuja Remix” with Balaa MC,  Meja Kunta’s “Wanga” featuring Lava Lava and many more.

Does this man Zuchu is no longer going to do more bongo flava music?
