Ret-RAW Saturdays: Ali Kiba – Usiniseme

If you are into your African music then you definitely know what Bongo Flava and may have heard of the name Ali Kiba. The Tanzanian artist is one of the hip-hop, reggae, R&B, afrobeat and dancehall influenced genre’s ambassadors and a major player on the East African music scene. This assessment can be justified by the fact that at one point in 2010 he was selected to become the Tanzanian representative of R.Kelly’s African musical super group ONE8 featuring among others Ali’s fellow East African, Amani (Kenya), Nigerian 2Face and Congolese Fally Ipupa. We never heard much from ONE8 afrter one single but the Swahili music singer is still active.

Ali is known for hits such as Nakshi Mrembo and Uniseme among others. Below is a video for “Usiniseme” a hit which can be justifiably played at any party today.
