In the song titled Corona, the musicians asks people to be careful so that they do not contract the deadly virus which kills within a few days, especially when one’s immunity is low.

The musicians urge people to take the disease seriously and adhere to the rules and regulations that have been put in place by the government to protect them.

They include; thoroughly washing your hands using clean water and sanitizing, avoiding large crowds and travelling  from one place to the other, educating others about the virus and seeking help when you have symptoms.

They say that the only way we can stop Coronavirus from spreading is by protecting one another and being cautious when we are in public.


Other than the powerful message that it carries, I’m sure after listening to Corona, you’ll agree with me that it’s such a beautiful composition.

If you are a fan of both Marioo and Maua Sama, like I am, then you know that they have an amazing voices and they put it into good use in this track to highlight the seriousness of the disease.

As you listen to them, you can tell that they are pained by what is going on around the world and you get to connect with him on a personal level. The instrumentation of this track is dope because it allows the message to sink in.

Listen to Corona below and tell us what you think.

Darassa is back with “Leo” featuring Jux

Darassa is back, this time with Jux for the jam ‘Leo’. This duo is not disappointing and the song is worth watching and listening to. The audio was produced by Abbah and the video directed by Hanscan. Leo is a swahili word which simply means today. Darassa is well known for his poetic kind of music and it is a cultivating one.

Into production, the jam was well thought off. Looking at the setting of the location was great and well done. Also the sound was well catered for making it clear to get the lyrics. The beats of the song bring out the hype in Darassa. There is creativity in the video, for instance, during introduction Darassa is frying something which gives taste to the introduction.

I like Darassa’s poetic introduction; ” Hello its me again Mr Burudani, take away the pain Pole kwa kuchelewa si unajua foleni Nawapa vidonge kutuliza complain” This is an apology to the fans for being late. Isn’t this a good way to capture attention?

On to my favourite part; “Kichwa, sijabeba kama pambo Akili, nimetega kwenye chambo Fullu, charge na fullu bundle Ukileta usoo, unawekwa kando” metaphorical description is used to show how ready he is today as he gets back.

“Leo” is open to anyone especially those who understand the Tanzanian swahili. Look at the words how they are flowing. Although the lyrics are good I would only play the audio on the airwaves and the video in a club setting. Also the vixens give the song life. They are scantly dressed for the video and the way they dance to the song is good.

Generally, the duo teaming up is a good thing, they have given power to music collaboration. I would give the song a rating of 6/10. I am a huge fan of Darassa and the poetic style in his work.
