Sam Wa Ukweli has released his newest 2018 song titled “Milele”, just as his fans are about to forget the collabo song “Saa” he did with Harmonize and SMILE last year.
Sam wa Ukweli is not a new figure on the Tanzanian musical scene. As a matter of fact, he was still singing during those days when the likes of Diamond Platnumz were still budding.
Why he never made it big like Ali Kiba, Diamond or Lady Jaydee, nobody knows. But just like any Bongo musician who did music during the era of the CD/DVD boom, piracy was a big letdown for these singers: It’s probably the reason Sam Ukweli is still behind in terms of fan base and recognition.
Thanks to the internet, such old time musicians now have a chance to redress their lost approval. Sam wa Ukweli is known for some huge tracks in Tanzania such as “Kisiki,” which was mastered by Chaidas records producer, Abbydady. He is also known for “Usiniumize,” a song he did with Diamond Platmumz and Top C back then.
“Hata Kwetu Wapo” is one of Sam Ukweli’s most successful single hits although, piracy kind of stripped the singer the recognition he deserved for it. Judging from the heartwarming video of “Milele” , there is a feeling that the song will be big hit for Sam Ukweli, this year.
Let’s just hope he will keep up the rhythm throughout the entire year. Stream, download and share your thoughts.
