Tanzanian duo sing about Fella

Top Tanzanian pop musical duo, Navy Kenzo (Aika and Nahreel), who are famous for making Tanzanian hit records like “Kamatia Chini”, “Game” featuring Vanessa Mdee and “Bajaj” featuring Patoranking, have released new single and music video, titled Fella.

The dancehall tune and certified club jam produced by Nahreel and Alvin Brown, comes hot on the heels of Nahreel’s production of the Coca-Cola anthem for the 2018 World Cup.
Speaking on their debut single since the release of their critically acclaimed 2018 debut album, Navy Kenzo say: “We are proud of Africa and FELLA is a show of our embrace and celebration of Africa.

“As Navy Kenzo, we have never showcased this kind of African expression in our videos – making many people always wonder if we do come from Africa.”

The duo are credited for popularising English rap in Tanzania, a Swahili speaking nation. The group’s unique pop sound is crafted in Aika’s singing and rap abilities and Nahreel’s creation of distinct sounds and varied genres like hip hop, dancehall and R&B.

The  music video was shot and directed in Tanzania’s Bagamoyo by celebrated South African director Justin Campos – a long-term collaborator of Navy Kenzo.

Navy Kenzo’s debut album AIM (Above In A Minute) was a compilation of 11 tracks, produced by Nahreel, alongside renowned Nigerian producer Chopstix and DJ Moshe Buskila featuring collaborations with some of Africa’s big names in music like Alikiba, Patoranking, Mr. Eazi and R2Bees.

They are currently working on their second album, which will be released in the coming year.
