Musicians who dropped hit songs in 2017

Big Tunes of 2017

East Africa’s music has grown to a whole new level.

Here is a list to check Out

Nyamari Ongegu aka Nyashinski is a Kenyan musician. Before he reappeared in the limelight he used to sing with a music group known as Kleptomaniacs. He sang alongside three members: Roba (Robert Manyasa), Collo (Collins Majale) and Nyashinski (Nyamari Ongegu).

Nyasinski is among the few Kenya artists who have released hit after hit in 2017. He first released ‘Now you know’ and it was well received. ‘Mungu pekee’ came as a bombshell and then ‘Malaika’ left everyone talking.

‘The dance ambassador’ Timeless Noel is a trend setter when it comes to dance. He has been on the limelight in 2017 after he released his song ‘Odi Dance’ which has kept everyone dancing.

Wilson Abubakar Radido also known as Willy Paul is debatably one of the most criticized gospel artiste because of the nature of his songs. ‘I do’ which was collabo with Alaine has stirred online conversations. Willy Paul’s ‘Jigijigi’ was loved and hated in equal measure.

Ali Kiba or King Kiba is now a household name when it comes to Bongo flavor music. Ali Saleh Kiba is a Tanzanian musician who has been in the industry for a while. He proved many wrong after he released his ‘Seduce me’ which he partly sang in English, which is so unlike him.

Naseeb Abdul Juma popularly known as Diamond Platinumz is a force to reckon with in the music industry. He is the most controversial musician in Tanzania. His latest songs are giving other artistes sleepless nights. Diamond’s latest ‘Love you die’ featuring Patoranking and ‘Waka’ featuring Rick Ross has left everyone talking.

Rajab Abdul Kahali  is a Tanzanian musician who goes by the stage name Harmonize. ‘Show me’ which he sang with Rich Mavoko is on a game of its own. It literally broke the internet. It was a game changer for him.
