It will be remembered that Zari found earings that were not hers in Diamond’s bedroom. She posted them on Snapchat and told ‘The one who left her cheap earings to come for them.’ Coincidentally, Hamisa had been seen with such earings in the past.
When asked, Diamond said they could have been left behind when the two were shooting the Salome video. But the question is, did they shoot the video in Diamond’s house? No.
And can Zari have been going at Hamisa for no reason?
In 2015, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Putt released the song See You Again, one that was based on the series, Fast And Furious 7. The song hit the world’s music charts by storm and has now logged over three billion views in just two years.
There is a new song that has broken the record. Luis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee’s song Despacito has hit over three billion views on Youtube in only six months.
Yes, that is the real record breaker. Just incase you did not know, Despacito means ‘Slowly’.
Even though the song is sang in Spanish, everybody across the world seems to have agreed with the beats and the video. They say music is a universal language.
“Breaking the record for most viewed video of all time on YouTube is truly incredible, not only for me but for Latin music and our culture. Working with a platform like YouTube has allowed our song to reach audiences all over the world, something that just a decade ago was nearly impossible. Having their support has been instrumental in the global success of Despacito, no doubt about it. Everything that has happened in the last six months has exceeded all my expectations, and I’m just grateful that people have enjoyed it so much and continue to sing it, dance it and share it.” – Luis Fonsi
“YouTube’s platform has been key to the success of ‘Despacito.’ The music industry has changed, the rules of music have changed and I fully recognize YouTube’s role and the power of its platform. Breaking a record is overwhelming and I’m happy to keep inspiring others to do the same.” – Daddy Yankee
This is the song, Despacito that ruling the airwaves:
Here is Justib Beiber’s remix to the song Despacito:
Diamond Platnumz’s daughter Latiffah Dangote alias Princess Tiffah is one slay kid.
On 6th August 2015, the bongo star and Zarina Hassan alias Zari The Boss Lady welcomed this cute baby girl to the world.
Tiffah is all grown up as she is set to celebrate her birthday on Sunday.
What is evident is the fact that she speaks good english…I mean very good english.
For the first time, her mother Zari who handles all her social media pages posted a photo of her speaking in english, showing how grown up litto Tiffah is.
In a recent interview, her daddy, Diamond, revealed that Tiffah speaks english all the time and very little Swahili, something that has made him pull his socks in learning the Queen’s language. he wants to b able to communicate with his princess, bila struggle.
It will be remembered that Diamond has hit the headlines in the past for ‘misusing English.’ But from what we can see of late, the Salome hitmaker has improved his garb of the queen’s lingo, forget the minor mistakes though!
He has of late not posted any mind-blowing mistake.
Diamond however added that his WCB crew are also learning the language pointing out that Harmonize and Rayvanny are joining him in the quest for better articulation and diction of the queen’s language.
In the meantime, check out this video of Tiffah speaking English:
Sauti Sol has grown over the years to become one of the most celebrated music groups not only regionally but internationally too. It’s all hardwork if you ask me, plus they have mastered the art of making good music.
Before they started doing music, they were friends, with Chimano, Bien and Savara going to the same school. But what many people don’t know is that Polycarp also got a letter to go to UpperHill School, but he ended up in another school.
Their friendship has definitely grown over the years, and since yesterday was International Friendship Day, they decided to celebrate it by answering a few questions like what does friendship mean to them and describing each other’s habits.
Davido is back with new single Pere, and is joined by rap heavyweights Rae Sremmurd and Young Thug.
Pere follows viral hit Fallwhich in a month has been viewed over 11 million times; while global hit If peaked at #1 in 9 countries, while retaining the #1 spot in the Nigerian iTunes chart for 7 weeks and gained an epic 30 million+ views on YouTube. The word ‘Pere’ means ‘one time’ in the Nigerian language of Yoruba.
With production from DJ Mustard (Rihanna, Krept & Konan) and features from fellow hit-makers Rae Sremmurdand Young Thug, Pereis the perfect Afro pop track.
Emerging in 2011 Davido quickly positioned himself as a force to be reckoned with. His sound seamlessly crossed over to the mainstream with the release of successive hit singles Way Back When, Dami Duro, Omo Baba Olowo, Gobe, Aye and Skelewu, the latter receiving attention from Major Lazer and Wiwek who went on to remix the single.
His discographyplaced him as an innovator of the Afrobeats sound, cemented with 2016’s Son Of Mercy EP which would catch the world’s attention, as well as future collaborators DJ Snake, Tinashe, Trey Songz, Olamide and more.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Nigeria, 24-year-old Davido (real name David Adedeji Adeleke) has always infused his Nigerian roots into his music. The singer/songwriter/producer chose to chase his music dreams after giving college a try.
Having performed sold out shows all over the world, including the One Africa Music Festival at Wembley, Davido has earned over 30 awards internationally including two MTV Africa Music Awards, a 2014 BET Award for ‘Best African Act’, two Nigerian Teen Choice Awards for ‘Top Featured Artist’ and ‘Choice Male Artist’.
After his recent hits Show Me and Happy Birthday that received too much love, Harmonize has released another one. The song goes by the name ‘Sina’. It is an emotional song that will definitely definitely get everybody’s feelings moved.
He talks about how youths get easy cash and behave like they have it all, forgetting their parents while spending stacks of cash showing off to their friends, buying them drinks and partying all round the world.
They forget that money is like water, once it’s poured it can’t be recovered and the people you spend your hard earned money on really matter. Many people forget family comes first and they are the ones who will always be there to lift you up when you fall. When rich you will have friends, but when broke they all will disappear.
Harmonize is also scheduled to perform at The Nakuru 032 Youth Concert to be held tonight at Nakuru athletics Club in Nakuru, Kenya .
‘Sina’ will surely be a hit considering it was released yesterday, July 27 2017 and just within a day it has already gained 153,904 views on you tube. It reveals the true picture of the current world. The artist seems to have made his way to the top and is not coming down soon.
Patoranking is one of the major artists in Nigeria who’s songs have won the hearts of Kenyans. His hits including No Kissing Baby ft Sarkodie and Girlie O ft Tiwa Savage among the others received many likes. He is a major threat to his competitor Wizkid with both claiming approximately an equal number of fans and especially in Kenya. Despite their differences they still work together to release great songs like This Kind Luv.
His new song, Hale Hale which was released four days ago was shot in Togo, Benin and he seems to have fallen in love. It is a great song indeed and the love cannot go unnoticed as today being the 4th day the song has already hit 534,012 views on you tube. This a clear indicator that the song is going to be a favorite to many. The moves in the song will definitely get you on your feet dancing.
Wizkid was recently in Kenya and his performance was explicit with crowds filling up to watch him perform. Patoranking is expected to be performing soon at the same place Wizkid did, and following their competition, maybe we can get to know who has really won the true love from Kenyans.
South African actor Ayanda Makayi is one of the fastest rising actors of this generation and his acting skills are definitely out of this world. Many people might not have known about him before even though he’s been acting for six years, but thanks to MTV Shuga, his light shone even brighter.
His role in Shuga drew different reactions from viewers as he played the role of Sol, an abusive boyfriend who had to get whatever he wants from his girlfriend, Tsholo. Even though the two were not on the same page, he had to force his way and get what he wants no matter what.
That’s a pretty tricky role as we all know how bad abusive relationships can be , based on stories we’ve heard or movies we’ve watched.
Well, in an EXCLUSIVE interview with Kiss FM, Ayanda revealed that he received mixed reactions he people who had watched the series.
He said, “I received a lot of mixed reactions. There’s a lot hate mail, a lot of people still hate me to this day, but at the same time there’s a lot of respect that I’ve received especially from people in the industry saying how brave I was tackling that character. So reactions are quite mixed.”
When he auditioned for the drama series, he had auditioned for a different character but the director ended up giving him the role of Sol.
When asked how it felt playing that role, he said, “It was weird acting that part because I’ve never abused anyone in my life and it also felt out of place but at the same time I had to not judge the character. I had to really understand him and believe his reason and where he’s coming from. It was weird as an outsider but in that moment I really believed him and I wanted to make sure he gets what he wants.”
Akothee is a woman full of surprises and we have all come to terms with that. She is also the queen of pulling stunts and making sure everyone believes it.
Well, social media has blown up after a video went viral of a dirty Akothee wailing and being held by men. Ok, let’s break this down. Akothee always has a way of telling a story when it comes to her music. She has pulled a number of publicity stunts, which evidently ended up being clips or photos from her music videos.
Remember when she fooled the entire country into thinking she was finally off the market and had gotten married to a mzungu mzee? Yes, we all believed it and looked like fools when she finally released her music video, ‘Yuko Moyoni’.
In this disturbing video doing rounds, Akothee is seen crying, wearing dirty clothes and one of her legs has a bandage. Some men gather around to help her (so we tend to believe), but when the crowd gets bigger, they carry her away as she cries saying her leg hurts really bad, urging the passers by to give her a lift. Some words are still not audible enough.
What seems to not make sense is that Akothee is always posting stuff on her social media accounts, but off late she hasn’t fed her accounts with anything. The last post she put up was a day ago and she was talking about one of her songs hiting three million views on Youtube.
Tanzanian artistes Harmonize and Young Killer Msodoki recently released a new joint dubbed Unaionaje and we have to admit that it is a quite a hit! Within a week, it is already a major one not only in Tanzania but also in Kenya, with more than 200,000 views on YouTube.
Real name Rajab, the Tanzanian recording artiste and song writer Harmonize grew into fame early this year after dropping his new hit single Ayiola, which had been topping the charts for two months straight. He is currently signed under Diamond Platnumz’ record label WCB Wasafi Classic, and we can say that he is keenly following in his bosses footsteps.
Apart from a work related friendship, Harmonize and Diamond seem to have a close personal relationship. That was confirmed when Harmonize got a Diamond tattoo on his hand, leaving many surprised by the gesture. And then again, Harmonize started dating Diamond’s ex, actress Wolper Stylish, got a child together and word has it that they got even got Diamond’s ”blessings”.
Anyway, other songs done by the Harmonize include Sawa, Niambie, Acha Nilewe, Matatizo, Show Me featuring Rich Mavoko, Bado featuring Diamond Platinumz among others.
Young Killer, real name Eriki Msodoki is a musician who is popularly known for his hit song ‘Sinaga Swagga’.
When he first got into the music industry, he met a music producer known as the Duke, who had signed to work together under the label called Dar Laboratori.
Word on the street however has it that he is planning to transfer to Diamonds WCB label, though he has dismissed that rumour, claiming that when it is time to do so, he will.
Anyway, more songs from this artiste include Mtafutaji, Mcha Giza, Furaha Yetu featuring Matunzo Zero Unit, Jana Na Leo featuring Stamina and Quick Rocker, Dear Gambe Featuring Belle, Umebadilika featuring Banana Zorro, Murder Dem featuring Diamond Platinumz among others.
The new single between the two artistes, Harmonize and Young Killer is a Swahili song that talks about “friends” who pretend to be there only when you’ve made it, those who are only there to use you, the jealous type of friends and those who are only there to destroy you behind your back.
It also states that whatever God has planned for you, nobody can change that.
Unaionaje was produced by Mr T Touch and under WCB Wasafi Records.
The multi-talented Kenyan songstress Rosa Akinyi popularly known as Rosa, has released a new single “Mchezo Ni Kwako” – produced by renowned Kenyan producer Dillie.
The urban pop smash single has a touch of dancehall, showcasing Rosa’s versatility. In her own words – this is a starter to defining her style as Rosa. She says, “This is the first of my upcoming singles that will have a specific sound but still be versatile.”
Speaking on the inspiration behind the song, Rosa says, “‘Mchezo Ni Kwako’ is about letting someone take over a relationship and asking them to meet your expectations,” adding, “It’s a fun song that still has a very serious meaning when put it in reality and one that we can easily to relate to.”
The music video of ‘Mchezo Ni Kwako’ is directed by one of the most sought after music directors, Team Mistari and was co-written by Opips and Jardel.
As she continues to solidify her brand in Kenya and beyond, Rosa is currently planning on working with more acts in the industry and she is keen on those who share a vision and style similar to hers.
She says, “It’s very exciting to finally have a direction to lead my fans and finally being able to fully define ROSA. I was inspired by the stage I’m in in my music career and definitely the things that have been happening around me. I’ve always done love songs but this is the fun version of all the previous ones. It’s a great depiction of my personality. All these factors influenced its creation.”
Rosa came into the spotlight following her amazing rendition of Sauti Sol’s “Nishike”. She later released her debut album “Original Copy”. The 12-track album was a blend of several genres that showcased Rosa’s vocal capability and diversity while also embracing different languages and different styles.
Sauti Sol have made a name for themselves and on so many occassions, international artistes who visit the country always state that they love Sauti Sol’s songs and would love to work with them.
American artiste, Jidenna is among those who love Sauti Sol and describes their songs as the right soulful sound.
We can all agree that their music is eccentric, popping and one can’t get enough of their jams. Jidenna went ahead to state that they had already reached out to Sauti Sol before they visited the country and also stated that he would love to work with them.
He also gave Blinky Bill a shout out for his good job.
He said, “I’m excited about Blinky Bill, Sauti Sol definitely, they have like a real soulful sound that I think is missing in a lot of Afro-Pop music. We actually reached out to Sauti Sol before we got here, so hopefully we’ll get a response.”
Well, we hope he got a good response, because a Jidenna-Sauti Sol collabo would be lit for years.
Nelson Oyugi, Akothee’s manager, celebrated his birthday in the best way ever… And yes, he is only 25 years young!
Akothee threw a party for her beloved manager Nelly Oaks at a popular club as the two celebrated this special day.
Even after denying that the two are an item, Akothee has left fans in a dilemma as she was even seen grinding on him as they partied on. This seems to have been an adults’ only affair as the two did not bring Akothee’s kids along.
Kenya’s most popular guitarist and member of multiple award winning group Sauti Sol has been making custom made guitars,which he christened ‘Fancy Fingers’ and they are exquisite. Polycarp broke the news last year in September through his social media platforms writing:
“Sounds so good! If you wanna make an order slide in my DM.”
Speaking to Word Is on how he came up with the idea, he had quite an interesting story.
“It was very random but it felt very great of course. There’s this guy who fixes my guitars. When he told me that he makes guitars from scratch, I thought, maybe we could make a Kenyan brand from this, because there is a very huge problem of instruments in this country.”
“For us, we travel alot and we buy things from outside but there is a kid who’s coming up and doesn’t have access to any kind of instrument. So it’s just an idea to have Kenyan made for the Kenyan musicians.”
According to him, there is still more to this amazing brand that we haven’t seen yet.
“It’s still in the process of being launched so am still trying to get the perfect brand name and perfect design. Then am going to launch it properly,” he said.
He says that he targets all the young upcoming artistes in the continent.
“Hopefully its going to be a big enough brand for the continent coz that’s my target. Young African Musicians.”
The multi talented artiste is also a producer, and he along side another group member Savara, do the productions for the group
“We do everything in-house. We write and produce”
So does he produce for other artistes apart from Sauti Sol?
“I also do produce for other people outside because it’s something that I love to do. I also gain a lot of experience from that and put it back in the band”
Fresh from the award winning afro pop group is a single titled ‘Friendzone’, a song that has hit the airwaves by storm. It is an emoji themed video, which left many wondering how and why they came up with the rare but exciting choice.
Speaking to Word Is about “Friendzone”,
“It marks the new chapter of our era in terms of recording music, how we write our music.”
And about the emoji aspect?
“You have to come into terms with the things that people use every day. Emojis are things that we use every day. When you’re talking to your friends you use emojis. When you want to have a laugh you use emojis.”
So, is it because they have been Friend zoned too many times?
“Definitely!!Kila mtu amekula friendzone. Everybody has been friendzoned one way or the other.”
In the song, they mention team mafisi, and having so many listeners globally, many tend to ask what that phrase means. They seem to take that question quite positively and are happy about it.
“It’s great because we are introducing Kenyan urban culture to the world. It is what’s happening in Kenya right now. It is the talk right now. When people ask us what team mafisi is and we give them the explanation, they are like wow, that’s really hilarious. dope. We are just sharing our culture with the world.”
They have recently done a song dubbed “Mbozi Za Malwa”with Ugandan artiste Bebe Cool and the reception was also quite impressive. As we would expect, the really did enjoy working with him.
“He is the boss in the industry and is a wise person. He is one of the best artistes we have worked with.”
If you have been wondering, “Malwa actually means alcohol. So “Mbozi Za Malwa” means those stories you talk with your friends while drinking. Those alcohol conversations.”
Sauti Sol will be going on Tour to Toronto, Canada on Wednesday and will be there till Monday. They, among other major African artistes like MiCasa and Tekno will be performing in one of the biggest African festivals in Diaspora, which they are very eager and ready to do.
“We feel like we are going for the Olympics. And we have to represent the country proper”, they said.
Well…we really are hoping to get more hits from this amazing group. If you still haven’t watched it, below is their latest song “Friendzone”
