Abdu Kiba, younger brother of famous Tanzanian singer and hit maker Ali Kiba has had to prove himself with his music over the years. With a very successful older brother in the same industry, who wouldn’t?
With song releases which have enjoyed massive airplay in East African radio stations and climbed charts, Abdu Kiba keeps clearing a part towards his own niche.
After dropping the single, Rhumba, last month, Abdu Kiba has followed it up with the release of his new track, Nalingi Ye. With songs like TOTO, Mubashara, Mwambie Sina in his catalogue, there’s no slowing down for the Tanzanian Native.
Speaking on his brother’s feud with singer, Diamond Platinum, Abdu has said he enjoys it. Apparently, he likes that it would help their music industry grow to greater heights. This comes with the pressure to constantly outdo each other.
On Nalingi Ye, Abdu Kiba features Tanzanian based singer, Christian Bella who is originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Christian Bella is known for his very energetic African music but slows down the pace of Nalingi Ye.
Known as the King of Voices, Christian Bella always leaves a great vocal performance on each track he graces. Since his emergence into the music scene at age 15, Bella has honed the art of manipulating his vocals to suit genres.
Nalingi Ye is a sure musical start to a great day. From start to finish, both Abdu and Christian deliver a highly laudable vocal performance.
