In the song titled Corona, the musicians asks people to be careful so that they do not contract the deadly virus which kills within a few days, especially when one’s immunity is low.

The musicians urge people to take the disease seriously and adhere to the rules and regulations that have been put in place by the government to protect them.

They include; thoroughly washing your hands using clean water and sanitizing, avoiding large crowds and travelling  from one place to the other, educating others about the virus and seeking help when you have symptoms.

They say that the only way we can stop Coronavirus from spreading is by protecting one another and being cautious when we are in public.


Other than the powerful message that it carries, I’m sure after listening to Corona, you’ll agree with me that it’s such a beautiful composition.

If you are a fan of both Marioo and Maua Sama, like I am, then you know that they have an amazing voices and they put it into good use in this track to highlight the seriousness of the disease.

As you listen to them, you can tell that they are pained by what is going on around the world and you get to connect with him on a personal level. The instrumentation of this track is dope because it allows the message to sink in.

Maua Sama drops classic love ballad ‘Nioneshe’ (Video)

I’m a big fan of Tanzanian songstress Maua Sama so when I heard that she had released a new song, I was naturally excited and I hope that you will be too after listening to it.

So, the jam is titled Nioneshe, which is Swahili for show me and it’s such a beautiful composition. If you’re into love ballads, I have a feeling that you will be listening to it on replay for a very long time.

Maua Sama

From my understanding, Maua Sama is not too sure whether a certain chap loves her. As such, she wants he wants him to show her that he really loves her through his actions.

I only started jamming to Bongo recently so when I tell you that this track is dope, you better believe me. You really should ladies and gentlemen.

For starters, Maua Sama has a lovely voice, the kind that most men, including myself, wouldn’t mind listening to all day. She really sounds like an angel, wait how do they even sound?

Maua Sama

She has a way of expressing herself in her songs that makes you feel like she is talking to you and then she is sincere in the way she sings.

To add to that there is a guy with a deep base on the background vocals and I feel their voices blend so well. Although my Swahili is not all that, I feel Nioneshe is lyrically on point.

The beat and instrumentation are not that bad either. If you’ve heard of the name Kimambo then I’m sure you know that he is probably the best beat maker in Tanzania.

The video is also really dope. One of the things I love most about it is it’s crisp quality. Of course, the location, props and scene transitioning were also impeccable. Kudos to Hanscana.

Watch Nioneshe below and tell us what you think.
