Kidum features in Burundi’s MB Data’s song “Yayaya”a highlight of domestic violence against men

YAYAYA! Not the play  song we did as kids in circles but is the new song by Kidum featuring MB Data. This is a heart break song of struggles of a married faithful man of a drunkard wife.

Kidum has mostly thrived on live music performance as he is one of the best vocalists in the region.

He has a list of songs including: nakupenda, Mapenzi, Nipe Nguvu, Number moia, Kimbia. He has collabos with artists like Lady Jaydee, cedo Bensoul, Mbwira, Sanaipei, Peter Msechu, Alicious

The Burundi based artist MB Data has done a number of songs including: Focus, Kiramutuna,Koma, Kata, Rumata among many others. He has also worked with artist from his country and now with Kidum.

They teamed up for this song when Kidum visited his mother country  some time in March and YAYAYA is the result.


For this jam they take turns to express their frustration and justify their decision to binge drink. They struggle with drunk partners, ladies with sharp tongues and domestic violence.

In this case highlighting what some men fear to talk about domestic violence against men.

Typical struggles in most African families. The vocals of the two artists are just a perfect match.

Raha zako tu ni kunichanganya kichwa mama

Mapenzi si maoenzi ni fujo tu kila siku

Ni kama tu  tunacheza mchezo wa paka na panya

Hebu nikuulize ni kitu gani mami

Unapata ukinitesa baby

Hebu nipe majibu, unasaidikaje kila mara ukiona machozi zangu zikitiririka kama mtoto mdogo

Well, these two have got mega marital issues that they have to deal with especially once they sober up from the drink

Set up in the domestic situation we get a glimpse of the two respective families. Furthermore, it gets even funnier when MB Data is the one who saves Kidum from being beaten black and blue by his wife. Kidum runs off to safety like a child saved from a huge fight.

The video is of good quality and does a good job in helping us relate to the song better.For one we give credit where is due their Swahili bis impeccable.

The song is amazing, evident from the positive comments of the contented fans.
