Tanzania— Bongo Flava artists led by Diamond Platnumz, Rayvanny, Juma Jux, and Khadija Kopa hit the studio to record a special tribute song for their departed President John Pombe Magufuli.
Videos shared on social media capture more than 20 Bongo Flava musicians composing and recording music in the studio.
The song that is being “cooked” by producers, Abbah Process, S2Kizzy, and Lizer Classic is expected to be out on Thursday (March 18).
The late Magafuli was a big fan of Bongo Flava Music. During the 2020 General Election campaigns, almost all artists campaigned for him and the Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) Party.
Some of the stars spotted in the studio also include; Lava Lava, Malkia Karen Gnako, Belle 9, Dulla Makabila, Queen Darleen, Zuchu, Khadija Kopa, Mbosso, Rayvanny, Juma Jux, Shilole, Marioo, Baba Levo, Christina Shusho, Ben Pol among others.
Magufuli’s death was announced by Tanzania’s Vice President Samia Suluhu, who said that the president died of heart complications late Wednesday.
