New Single Alert! African Hustle by Mzungu Kichaa ft Dela from their EP – Hustle to be released in Dec. 1 2012
Mzungu Kichaa releases new single African Hustle featuring Kenyan songstress Dela.
The song is the first single from his EP titled Hustle to be released on the 1st of December 2012. This release marks the start of a long‐term partnership between Tanzanian Caravan Records & Penya Africa.
African Hustle is a positive message about working hard with what you have. This is Mzungu Kichaa’s first release since the release of his début album in 2009, which won him an award at the African Achievement Awards. Since the release of his first album Tuko Pamoja, Mzungu Kichaa has been performing extensively in East Africa and met Dela during a visit to Nairobi. He later invited Dela to Dar es Salaam to perform at the Beat Festival, during which they recorded African Hustle at his studio Caravan Records. The collaboration marks an important step to build relationships between artists across the borders and to create a stronger East African music industry. Dela and Mzungu Kichaa are shooting a video for the song in Nairobi, to be released soon.
Mzungu Kichaa has often described Dela as one of his favorite East African artists, so it is not surprising that he took the necessary steps to realize this collaboration. Dela is signed to Penya Africa where she has released her debut album, “Paukwa” and worked with various artists including Sauti Sol on hits like Mama Papa.
African Hustle will be available on iTunes and other online platforms. Listen here
Dela’s debut album will be available at 50% off!
