Mbosso comes through with ‘Haijakaa Sawa’ (Video)

WCB Wasafi artist Mbwana Yusuph Kilungi, known to his fans as Mbosso, has released a new jam and it’s getting so much love.

The song dubbed Haijakaa Sawa, which loosely translates to ‘it’s not okay’, has been ruling the airwaves since it was released a few hours ago and to be honest, we are also feeling it.



From my understanding, this track is about a man who is trying to assure his partner that although things seem hard at the moment, the future is bright and their troubles will one day come to an end.

Mbosso tells the lady to stop frowning and not to get worried when he comes back home with a nasty temper because things will get better with time.

Although I am not a huge fan of Bongo music, I must admit that I totally love this song. The first reason is because it carries a very powerful message which is hope and perseverance.


The other reason is very obvious and that is the fact that Mbosso has amazing vocals. You just want to keep listening to him as he sings because you kind of get the feeling like the message he is passing comes from his heart.

To add to that, he also knows how to control his voice. Notably, the beat and instrumentation on this jam are also on point since they make the song catchy and blend well with Mbosso’s style, vibe and tempo.

Listen to Haijakaa Sawa below and tell us what you think. Enjoy!

Diamond Platnumz should be very afraid of Harmonize

Diamond Platnumz has been the face of Tanzanian music for a long time and I feel that is about to change thanks to one Rajab Abdul Kahali, known to you and I as Harmonize.

The two artists are cut from the same cloth and perhaps this explains why Diamond Platnumz devised all manner of tactics to frustrate Uno hitmaker’s efforts to exit WCB Records.

They appeal to the same audience and it would have been much easier for Diamond Platnumz to have him under his nose where he can sort of control and monitor what he is putting out.

But now that Harmonize is a free man having paid a Tsh 600 million – approximately Ksh 26.2 million – fine that was imposed on him for exiting WCB Records, Diamond Platnumz should be very afraid.

The truth is that Harmonize is a hard worker just like Diamond Platnumz and the fact that he had been working with the latter for so many years even before we got to know about him means that he has learned the ropes.

Diamond Platnumz

He knows what it takes to be at the top and he’s going for it. This is evidenced by his recently released 18-track album titled Afro East which features the likes of; Morgan Heritage, Khaligraph Jones, Phyno, Yemi Alade, Burna Boy etc.

The album is doing very well and it’s what everyone is talking about, including Diamond Platnumz himself as he took to Instagram to congratulate Harmonize for the huge milestone.

If you ask me, this album would not have been delayed if Harmonize was still at WCB Records because you are sort of not allowed to outshine the boss.

There was a time when the likes of Mr Nice, Matonya and Ali Kiba were the faces of Tanzanian music and I feel that a similar coup is happening at the moment and before you know it, Diamond Platnumz will be long forgotten.
