Tanzanian Bongo Flava superstar, Christian Bella continues to prove why the country is regarded as the home of golden sounds. He has commissioned yet another belter and he titles this one “Happy Birthday.”
As dedicated to Rolsy Bandu, Christian Bella might have created a classical birthday song as he expended the depths of his celestial vocals and a perfect rendition that’s all shades of groovy and mesmerising.
Plus, “Happy Birthday,” continues the rout and streak of Christian Bella who has been unforgiving in recent times with such high-flying musical pieces including “Lamba Lamba“ which featured the defunct Malaika Band, “Nijue,” alongside Weusi, “Rudi,” with Malaika Band, “Pambe” and “Shuga Shuga,” just to mention a few.
Christian Bella is notable for using the kinds of vocals known as Bongo Flava or what we call the Tanzanian sound, yet he still brings on ingredients of his own native Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) as well as the bouncy Caribbean flavours to bare on his offerings.
He is also known for the love of the publicity and referred to as Obama or Mfalme wa Masauti (King of Voices). It isn’t much of a surprise since he grew into music from the age of 15 with some of the best on the circuit now including Fally Ipupa.
“Happy Birthday” is now the latest celebratory episode and you definitely want to key right into the festivities laced with the abundance of flavours from the Motherland as well as an accompanying music video.
