Darassa features Maua Sama in his new jam Shika. He is known for his poetic style in music. A style in which he has adopted since his inception of the music world. Also I must say that this poetic style helps to break the monotony of bongo music from Tanzania.
Darassa is known for a couple hit songs which he still performs in his poetic style. This time round he has featured another talent from Tanzania Maua Sama. The duo has a great taste in music and a great way in which they have performed Shika.
Shika is a Swahili word meaning hold. We are only left to find out what it means in Darassa’s work as we know he is always full of surprises. Although he takes quit sometime before releasing songs, he always has a way to people’s hearts due to the great poetic lines.
I know most people prefer to listen to his work rather than the most common things other artist have. The duo has delivered this song with a lot of love and energy. The mastery of the lyrics and beats is just wow. I can listen to this dudes work over and over again. The duo compliments each other giving this jam Shika their best and the best feel.
What is ‘Shika’ all about?
Mguu pande mguu sawa Tembea, tembea Nataka uwanja nitambe Sogea, sogea. This line is just awesome. Look at how well articulated it is. The poetic nature in it will make you recite the words over and over again. Also he applies repetition in his work for emphasis and rhyme.
Also there is this line that you can’t miss; Jembe la kulima, tifua tifua Navua papa itakua kamba, dagaa, kibua Mshike mshike segele langu unalijua Ngoma inoge kelele zangu mpaka napasua.
Shika has been produced by Abbah and mixed Mr. T Touch. The music video was shot in Tanzania and directed by Hanscana.
In conclusion, Darassa and Maua Sama gets a rating of 7/10.
