I recently came across a talented artist named Oliver Sabato, alias Simba, and it only seemed right that I should share his music with you on this column.

Simba is an Afro-pop, Genege and Kapuka singer. He also has a few gospel songs here and there. Basically, anything goes for this 25-year-old singer.

He developed interest in music when at the tender age of 8. In his high school days, Simba participated in the drama festivals and learnt a thing or two about singing.

The Huruma-bred singer released his first song in 2014 featuring the late Drygin and Frakas, the Man U na Arsenali hitmakers.

To date, Simba has worked with many leading local acts including; Jua Cali, Pitson, Hope Kid, Godson Jawabu and Bwoy P.

He is famed for songs such as; Sijai Skia, Nakuona Sana, Ndio, Ni God, Marry Me, Wezesha, just to name a few.

Simba is currently riding high on his latest release dubbed Tosha, a song that he released about a month ago.

Tosha is a Swahili word that means enough. As you can already tell, the song is about a guy who is trying to convince a lass that he’s satisfied with her and does not need any other person.

From the look of things, it’s only a matter of time before Simba becomes a household name. Keep an eye out for him!

Watch Tosha below and tell us what you think.
