Nickson Simon ranks as one of Tanzania’s major artiste, and his ranking seems to increase with every new release. Surely, the artiste, who goes by the stage name Nikki Wa Pili, knows his purpose on earth.
That purpose is music – to make it, sing it, curate it and make the world happier with it. And he has succeeded already. “Kanifuata” is the newest song from him, a Bongo Flava offering that is worth every second dedicated to listening to it.
With past offerings such as “Hesabu,” featuring Joh Makini and S2Kizzy, “Quality Time,” and “Mawindo,” featuring G Nako, “Nje Ya Box,” “Legendary,” featuring Vanessa Mdee, “Kitu Cha Arusha” and several others, the singer definitely has his eyes on a legend status.
Singing a Bongo Flava number, it makes absolute musical sense to feature someone who is himself a maestro on the beat. This is where Jux comes in. A Bongo Flava master with songs such as “Umenikamata” and “Fimbo” to his credit, Jux is an AFRIMMA 2018 nominee.
He has scored important collaborations with some big names in the business, including “Nyatu Nyatu” crooner G Nako in “Go Low,” and with Lord Eyes in “Hela Yangu.”
