Barnaba Classic drops another song “Muongo” the lies in love

Tanzania’s Barnaba Classic is back to the music scene with another exciting jam “Muongo”. Muongo is Swahili that loosely translates to Liar.

He did a song that revolves around heartache and unfulfilled promise of love.

Barnaba highlighted the plight of a young man broken by a woman he thought he loved. He was lied to!

In a way Barnaba went deep to reveal how broken he is for being played. Sounds familiar huh!

For Barnaba, he was working hard to be the man she always wanted. However he comes to realize they have been three of them in the relationship.

She lied! Typical!

The broken lad went all out in his lyrics saying how much of a liar the girl was-Muongo.

I am sure most of us have been in such a situation thinking you are the “main” only to learn we have been wasting our time.


As most musicians struggle to put out lyrics for their music, Barnaba opts for the old school kind of writing his music. How?Poetry!

I mean his lyrical prowess cannot be dismissed.

He has a simple groove to hi lyrics that makes it easy for fans to relate to. If you are a keen listener you’d get his lyrics almost immediately.

Barnaba Classic

He starts off with,

“Masikini mimi moyo wangu Pasu pasu,Kwa nilivyompenda singefanya machafu,

Penzi kalitimatima kama viatu yaani bila huruma katupanag watatu,

Kwaake niliwekeza upendo ye hakuwa na malengo,penzi akaweka na pengo kupenda shida kabisa…..”

Just but a snippet of what the woman he loved did to him. He tries to understand why she did it and it breaks his heart.

He further goes on to remind us that love is a beautiful thing and it should not hurt if it doesn’t work you hop to the next with the hope of better loving.

Besides, we all want to live and be loved.

The audio to this jam was done by Tanzania’s Mocogenius.  I must say Barnaba Classic did well for now we wait for the video which am sure will do better in terms of reach.

For rating I go with 7/10. Listen and tell us what you think.

Barnaba Classic goes all sensual in new track “One in Million”

After of what seems like a video production break,Barnaba classic has earlier dropped a new song “One in a million.” The sensational tune which he wrote himself has only been out for a few hours. Further the High stable sonds boss is out to pick up his space like before.

One in Million is a love song describing your typical kind of love and romance.


The lyrics are in Swahili save for a few words in English. Barnaba’s vocal prowess is displayed from beginning to end as he speaks a language we all understand, the language of love. I mean he is a Swahili poetic guru!
Pasi na wewe mimi sio mzima
Nakupenda mpaka Kiama
Habari zisambazwe, pasi na wewe sijalala
Usingizi waniruka, Aaai Nakupenda.

The song takes a poetic turn as he navigates lyrics professing his love. For a moment we even forget we are listening to a song. This man is an artist. One who deeply understands his art.

The song is sweet and has a serenading effect. An ideal tune for lovers. Especially in this period of quarantine this can be a reason to rekindle love among couples.

Takes his time to put across the lyrics. The instruments in the background are kept on the low to allow fans enjoy listening to the song as he declares his love and what he feels for this lady. Nothing gets to the heart like words said in love.


The video is simple, shot in Kigamboni Tanzania set in a well-lit colourful room and in the outdoors. He only features one vixen.

Furthermore, it has very little going on and is very descent and good enough to be watched by all audiences.
The song that has been well received by his fans already has thousands of tunes.

The fans don’t shy away from telling of their contentment with the tune.

Barnaba has also done a lot of songs including: Washa, Lover boy, Sichomoi, Tuachane mdogo mdogo, Mapenzi jeneza, Tunafanana, Nyang’a Nyang’a, Bado muda and zodoa. He also has Chausiku and Siri feauturing Venessa Mdee as well as ngoma featuring Aslay,

One in a million is an amazing jam, just like Barnaba himself. We still look forward to having this amazing work with some of the artists outside Tanzania. In the meantime keep safe, Sanitize!

Rating 9/10.Watch and tell us what you think.
