Award-winning Tanzanian singer Nurdin Bilal Ali, better known as Shetta, has released a new track alongside Rhino and it’s getting so much love from their fans.

The song dubbed Wekka has been getting a lot of airplay since it was released a few days ago and to be honest, we’re also feeling it or else we would not be reviewing it, would we? Okay, maybe we would.

Basically, this track is about a certain guy who is obsessed with a beautiful lady to an extent where he can not put his mind to anything else.


In the second verse, Shetta says that he wants people to know that they really love each other and it doesn’t matter if the relationship will cost him a lot of money because she belongs to him after all.

Wekaa is such a beautiful composition. To add to that, it’s well-arranged. It’s those kind of jams that you hear on the radio and a specific person, perhaps your crush, comes to your mind almost instantly.

The voices of Rhino and that of Shetta, also known as Baba Qayllah, blend perfectly. While the latter’s voice is subtle and soft, the former’s is a bit horse and together they sound so perfect.

Notably, the beat and instrumentation on this jam are also dope so much so that you will just keep hitting the replay button. Yup, it’s that good. We have to give it to the super-talented Kimambo for the good work.

Listen to Wekaa below and tell us what you think. Enjoy.

Men who listen to Bongo music, have we lost our masculinity?

Tanzanian music is big in Kenya. This is a fact of life and from the look of things, this will be the case for a long time to come. It’s just what it is.

If you are keen enough, you’ll notice that the top trending songs on YouTube (Kenya) are usually Tanzanian songs. As we speak, Diamond’s latest single dubbed The One is occupying the number one spot.

Before that, Harmonize’s Kainama was trending at number one and before that it was probably another Wasafi song or a song the likes of Aslay, Shetta Juma Jux, Darassa or even Ali Kiba. The point is, the biggest song in Kenya on most occasions is always a Tanzanian song.

There’s no explanation for this other than the fact that musicians from that country are very consistent and then there’s the obvious fact that their music is good. From the videos, to the lyrics down to the beat, everything is always top-notch.

Naturally, if you are a music fan, whether male or female, you’ll find yourself vibing to these songs never mind the fact that they are Bongo songs. Let’s be honest, when a song is good, it’s good there are no two ways about it.

I was recently having a conversation with some friends and I thought I should ask them what their thoughts are on men who listen to Bongo music. My question was driven by the fact that Tanzanian jams are always trending in Kenya.

Some of them claimed they would never listen to such songs. If they did, they would come off as weak men. Others, however, admitted that they listen to Bongo music because the songs are infectious. Incase you were wondering, I fall in the latter category. I listen to Tanzanian songs once in a while. Yup!

Truth is, no music genre is a preserve of a certain gender. It’s just the way the society has shaped our thinking. From a young age, men are taught to be tough while ladies are seen as soft. Perhaps this explains why men are drawn to Hip Hop while ladies are drawn to Bongo music, R&B and what not.

This should not be the case. Men should not feel like they are losing their masculinity because they love Bongo music. It’s totally okay to enjoy music that you feel is good. There’s absolutely no shame in it.

Diamond Platnumz

Allow me to say this again, “No music genre is a preserve of a certain gender.” If you enjoy Bongo music, knock yourself out, it doesn’t make you any  less of a man. And no, I’m not telling you to listen to Tanzanian songs at the expense of Kenyan music.
