The onetime Bongo sensation is in Kenya to launch a new album here. He believes that he can get back to the top once again if Kenyan audience accept his music.

“I am here for work. I came to launch a new single from my latest album “The Vocalist”. It’s the fifth album that I am releasing after “Sauti Ya Dhahabu”, “Burudani”, “Jembe”, and “Prison Voice”. I so love Kenya and I believe my fans here do love me as well. That’s why my songs, such as “Zeze”, “Siamini”, “Kiuno’, “Nyota Yako” among others, received massive airplay here back then. I am back to rekindle that after being silent for a while. The last two songs even went on to win two Kisima Awards. I believe I can do this again,” said TID.

Drug addiction

TID also addressed his struggle with drug addiction. The singer reveals that he sold most of his property to keep up with the addiction before he finally got into rehab.

“I lost a lot of time deviating from doing music, I lost a lot of money that I made from shows, I sold my cars to keep up with the habit, I couldn’t develop my properties anymore and then I realised I was losing so much. The then president (Jakaya Kikwete) also got concerned and summoned me. I had to quit to save the little that was left and be an example to the others.

“I didn’t get to be a junkie because I mainly used ecstasy, which isn’t necessarily addictive. However, I did therapy classes for two months in Germany,” TID narrated.
