I HAD SO MUCH FUN INTERVIEWING TANZANIAN SUPER TALENTED VOCALIST & SONGWRITER STEVE RNB- SUCH A CHARACTER, WHAT I LOVED ABOUT HIM IS THAT HE FOUND HUMOUR IN EVERY QUESTION.

 Seif Kabelele: How do you deal/handle fame, women & money?
Steve RnB: When God gives you the talent I believe he also gives you the wisdom & the power to be able to control things or situations. We are all human and we make mistakes but the important thing is to acknowledge your mistakes and make right decisions from there on. I always put God in everything I do and it makes handling all this a piece of cake. Yes I am ‘Steve RnB’ but I never forget that I am Steven William Gambo. Learn to apologize to people you’ve wronged. Put yourself on check & you will always be right.

Seif Kabelele: How has the experience been on your Germany tour?  
Steve RnB: It’s been phenomenal. One adjustment I’ve had to be mindful of (but I’ve prepared myself mentally for this a long time ago), is that this is a market where I’m unknown and building from scratch, whereas, when I leave these shores I’m like a big superstar. So it’s sort of an adjustment in that sense, but it’s exiting at the same time, and I’m loving the fact that I’ve got people so open to hearing what I have to say, open to my music, they’re curious about the African songs I sing. It’s lovely to have a new audience who’s just interested in what you do. So I’m really enjoying it, I’m loving it.
 Seif Kabelele : What is it that inspires you? I know sometimes as we grow older our interests change. Are your inspirations from when you were young still the same now? We never stop growing or learning.
Steve RnB: Yes and No. But the people that inspired me to become a musician and an entertainer remain my heroes through out my life. The people from my family who have inspired the human side of me also remain quiet relevant in my life in terms of the things that I do. If I feel like I’m losing what they taught me when I was growing up I always think about what they would say if they had to find out. That also holds me back from some of the explicit lyrics that I’d love to write. I have to choose my words wisely.

Seif Kabelele : Are you that bad? Can you really go deep?
Steve RnB: I’ve got that deep bad side to me but I think all of us have it. The people who choose to go that route and be loose cannons is because Bad is easy. As long as it’s something wrong or bad it’s very easy to do it. Good things are hard work. Good is just difficult but it’s better for you. For example: to keep healthy is not easy because you have to eat properly and exercise instead of just sitting on the couch and eating junk food. To save money is difficult to just spending it. There are so many good things that are tough to do.

Seif Kabelele: I know you have travelled a lot as a Performer. Which country stands out for you?
Steve RnB: I will talk about personal experience first. I really enjoyed being in Australia. I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I did. In terms of performances I really enjoyed our two tours in Germany.

 Seif Kabelele: How do you strike a balance between family time and fans? Let’s say maybe you are out with your wife  and people approach you for autographs & photos?
Steve RnB: I try to do the best that I can. There are some people who have worse jobs than me. I am blessed to be doing what I’m doing so I do make time for the fans because I am in the industry where all I have can be taken away just like that.
Seif Kabelele: But Steve, what does it take to make it? Is it about timing? Is it talent? Is it sex appeal? What do you think it takes to stand out in an industry where there is so much talent?

Steve RnB : Awww man, that is an amazing question. First and foremost, I believe that nothing can happen without the Lord’s blessing. You can be the world’s most talented performer in the world, but if God meant for you to be a doctor and heal people, that’s the way it is. I believe that you first have to pray and ask God what HE wants you to do. I’ve always lived my life like that. It also takes hard work and dedication. There will be many low moments throughout you life and you will feel like you should be getting opportunities that keep passing you and that you deserve those opportunities. It’s very easy to be discouraged, but you’ve got to be determined and work hard to be as creative as possible while understanding the formula of success in this industry. If that formula has already been written, don’t be afraid to try that formula.

Seif Kabelele : Aha…
Steve RnB: While adding your own touch to it. You know what I mean? Don’t be afraid.

Seif Kabelele: : I get you.
Steve RnB: There are many ways of getting out there. There’s the TZ Idols, there’s Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and so many different outlets you can use to be heard. You just need to be focussed on what you want to do and keep pressing on.

Seif Kabelele : With all this happening around us as Africans. How do you feel when some continents paint a picture that this is where HIV/Aids lives.
Steve RnB : Aids is everywhere. People can lie to make themselves feel good about whatever but at the end of the day truth remains. Aids is a world crisis not an African crisis.

Seif Kabelele : What message do you have to African people about this crisis?
Steve RnB: Use protection. A lot of people need you. You might not need yourself but trust me there are other people who need you. This life is not ours. We live for our loved ones and all those who need us. I know it’s much harder for the youth because they are still experimenting. But please protect yourself. Use a condom each time you’re having sex.

Seif Kabelele : Thank you so much for your time. Do you have a message for my Readers?
Steve RnB: To all my fans that have been supporting my music. Thank you very much. Look after yourselves. Always put God first. Stay out of trouble. Don’t do drugs and don’t forget to use condoms. PROTECT yourselves.

EXCLUSIVE: SEIF KABELELE 10 MINUTES INTERVIEW WITH NIGERIAN TAYO FANIRAN FROM THE BIG BROTHER AFRICA 2014

 Seif Kabelele: Describe yourself in one word.
Tayo : Mysterious. This is because I can’t really place a finger on one thing. There are so many versions of me, some are true and some are false.

Seif Kabelele: Tell us about the Tayo  before BBA, and what do you think has changed?

Tayo : I’m the same Tayo I was before BBA, nothing has changed, i’m loud, down to earth, joke a lot.  I’m a hard worker and a hard player, i’m not a helpless romantic, but I’m sensitive, deep and I've got high intuition.  I’m also very outgoing.


Seif Kabelele: What was life like before BBA?

Tayo : Life was simple. I liked to be around people. I grew up in a very small town, so I didn’t have too many friends. I was usually indoors, watching television and nurturing my talents. I did regular things,  I was ambitious, still am, and I had big dreams.


Seif Kabelele: What did the BBA program expose you to?

Tayo : A lot of platforms. I’ve always had multiple talent; it has helped me explore those talents and also given me leverage, I’ve  found a lot of favor with people. People always want to do favors for “celebrities”, and it’s nice.  Also, I’ve been able to help people. When God puts you in a position to help people, there’s joy.  For me, that has been the height; when people come to you and you can help them, it’s totally amazing.


Seif Kabelele: You get loads of attention from  ladies, how do you handle this?

Tayo : My personal life is something I’ve chosen not to speak about, it’s my personal life.  Everyone has access to every other part of my life. I have to be Tayo as Tayo sometimes, I can’t be Tayo the celebrity all the time. I don’t sleep around. I’ve had my fair share growing up, so it’s not new to me. Some people can’t phantom that I’m not like that; promiscuous, changing ladies like underwear.  I’m all about progress, moving forward, doing the right things to inspire the right people. I like the attention, because it puts me in a position to help and inspire people. A lot of ladies approach me with sexual intentions and end up leaving with enriched lives.  To me, it’s the same thing as a boss sleeping with a co-worker, so I don’t do it. Thank God I’ve been raised well. 

Seif Kabelele: What’s your take on the Entertainment Industry?

Tayo : Entertainment has been an alternative source of income. It plays a huge role in the building of the economy. In the industry, you have to be dedicated and serious. If you’ve got any issues, you have to hang them outside before getting into work mode. Entertainment should be encouraged in Nigeria especially as it rapid grows. It is interesting and fulfilling if you know what you are doing. Entertainment touches lives, entertainers touch lives.


Seif Kabelele: How are you handling your success and all the pressures that come with it?

Tayo: I stay grounded, stay close to family and don’t forget where I’m coming from. I put my life in God’s hands. I worry less, because with worry comes old age and stress. I keep my head level and surround myself with good positive people


Seif Kabelele: A lot of young people look up to you, what words do you have for them?
Tayo: Be true to yourselves. Don’t be encouraged by fake lives. Dream big, accomplish what people say you can’t achieve. The only being who can help accomplish these things is the Supreme Being which is GOD, so, hold unto Him.

THIS SHIT REMINDS ME OF MY CHILDHOOD PRETTY MUCH, IN THE LATE 90s I REMEMBER HEARING THIS SHIT ON THE RADIO WHEN I WAS HANGING OUT WITH MY BROTHER. THERE WAS ONLY ONE AALIYAH, THERE IS NO REPLICA OF HER, SHE WAS HERSELF ONE IN A MILLION

( Missy Elliott ) >>>>>>KORE KARA MINNA DE MECHAKUCHA ODOTTE... SAWAGO SAWAGO!-THIS WOMAN NEEDS TO COME BACK AND SHOW ALL THESE PRINCESSES WHO THE REAL QUEEN OF THE GAME IS ( HER MUSIC SOLD THEMSELVES, SHE DIDN’T NEED TO SHOW EVERYBODY ALL HER BOOBS TO SELL HER MUSIC )
 Japanese opening. "Kore kara minna de mechakucha odotte. Sawagou, sawagou". Translated into English, it means: "Everyone start dancing together wildly now. Let's make some noise, let's make some noise."....

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH INCREDIBLY TALENTED HIP HOP ARTIST FROM TANZANIA-WAKAZI

 He has evolved from a young child in the streets of Dar es Salaam, to a lyrical giant who sees nothing else than Work Ethic and Dedication as being the keys to success. After years of commitment and dedication to his craft, Wakazi is poised to become Tanzania’s leading Ambassador in Africa and in the Music World. His signature Blend of English and Swahili rhymes caused him to be dubbed the “Bilingual Beast”, but his ability to tell a story and clever use of wordplay and metaphors, seem to be his real Strength. His ability to create context for the listeners is unparalleled, and he credits that to his personal life experiences as well as his imaginative part of the brain, which is sometimes more vivid than life itself. Wakazi has set the platform with which his dreams could be fulfilled. The sky is the limit for this TZee Emcee.
Seif Kabelele: How are you?
Wakazi: I'm  very good sir. I feel blessed, so it's a good thing, good feel. God is wonderful

Seif Kabelele: How did the video for 'SUMU YA PANYA ' come about? It has a very strong aesthetic.
Wakazi: Yeah I am very pleased with the way the video turned out. We wanted to capture Dar City in a way it has never been captured before with the day to day street hustle as well as the beauty of the city that also exhibits it's growth. Hefemi, the director, did a wonderful job. We shot it in Mnazi Mmoja, Kariakoo Shimoni and at Samora Avenue in downtown. We did early morning shoots and evening shoots. And it was nice for us to be able to include the actual Sumu ya Panya vendors in the video as well.

Seif Kabelele: How much input do you have into the video?
Wakazi: Normally everytime I work with hefemi, we treat the project as a collaborative creative work. I tell him what I have in mind, he creates his ideas from listening to the song, and the last process is to find a way to meet so the ideas can jell together. No matter how much of input I have on the video, he still dictates the final version since he has more knowledge on film, cinematography and effects so he knows what works best. But yeah I have a lot of influence in the creative process.

Seif Kabelele: So when you’re recording an album, do you approach it as if it could be your last? Every record should provide a fitting legacy...
Wakazi: Infact it is the other way around. I approach  each project as if it's my first. That way, I  can maintain the edge and urge of wanting to prove something to the masses. They say the first album of an artist is always the best, so I want to embody that throughout my career so that everytime I come with new material it can still feel like it's the first time which is pure, raw, fresh and groundbreaking.

Seif Kabelele: Do you feel exposed as an artist putting your emotions out there for people to dissect and experience?

Wakazi: To a certain degree yes you would feel exposed, but mind you, you really don't have to put all your emotions and feelings but rather control the level of personal life you give out. But on the other hand, as an artist you are mirroring the society so the emotions and feelings don't have to be personal but rather of someone you happen to know. It is necessary to express these Situations because through music people get healed, get redemption, find therapy and  find closure. So as long as it is for the better of the community it's all good. 
 Seif Kabelele: Anyone you’d really like to collaborate with?
Wakazi: I have a list of artist both locally and internationally that I would love to work with. It's a very long list and hopefully someday I will accomplish it. There are some whom I am already in the process of working with but I can't reveal now. And to be honest I'm open to work with anybody who has the same values as me as far as the music is concerned and they value work ethic, they are dedicated and things of that nature. A dream collabo would be with people like Nas, Eminem, Wu Tang, Hashim Dogo, Chidinma, M.I, Kidum, Heather Headley, R Kelly, Enika, Bamboo, Antoneosoul, the list goes on....

Seif Kabelele: You’re quite outspoken on certain subjects alongside other artists like Fid Q, Professor Jay  etc. and willing to stand up and say what you believe in? Is it an artistic responsibility?
Wakazi: Yes it is an artistic responsibility but also upbringing, social belief and personal preference all mixed together. We are the voices of the voiceless, we are the hope of the hopeless. We are the leaders although we are not elected nor appointed, which means we are the true leaders cause we assumed responsibilities unforced. The minute we lie to our people or we get scared to stand up for our people, it's the minute we as a community will start to die slowly. And knowing the power that we possess, it's mandatory to be socially responsible. 
Seif Kabelele: Do you ever worry that the video becomes synonymous with the song? A track like 'TOUCH'  I can’t hear that without seeing the video in my head.
Wakazi: As an artist one of our job if not the only job, is to create context with which the listeners can think and later create images and pictures that mirror the music. When we shoot visuals for the songs, we actually help you as a listener to get the picture we intended you to get. So it is not a worry but rather an accomplishment. And for the songs we don't shoot videos for, we are leaving your imagination to do the magic.

Seif Kabelele: When you were growing up, was music an important part of your life?

Wakazi: Music has been very important element in my life. Infact it has been so important to a point of me actually wanting to do nothing else but music, hence becoming an artist. Every childhood memory I can think off or remember is somehow some way related to music. Music marks time, and time is one of the basis of our whole existence. So you can imagine 
 Seif Kabelele: When you record do you keep it in mind how it will play out live?
Wakazi: It varies from record to record. There are certain songs that are meant to be played loud and some with low volume. Some songs are meant to be performed and some are to just be listened to so one can meditate through them. So yes I'm always aware of what I'm giving out and to whom I'm giving it to.

Seif Kabelele: Do you prefer playing large arena shows to small intimate ones?
Wakazi: That is a tricky situation. I can say it depends on what type on musical agenda I am pushing at that particular time. Intimate shows gives fans an opportunity to really dissect the music and gets to hear you well, while on the other hand if you can move the crowds, which is actually what an emcee is supposed to do, then you the man. There is no better feeling than hearing 60,000 plus people screaming you words!! That's the ultimate goal which shows that you are certified.

Seif Kabelele: Would you ever consider going into politics?
Well in my opinion we are already into politics so to speak. The music industry is full of politics that we are dealing with on a day to day basis.  So to transition to a political career won't be much of a change as it will be just "same script different cast". As artists we do air out feeling and opinion on several matters and these issues so as politicians are addressed directly to the people so we as artist can influence and bring about change without being formal official leaders. But I don't know what the future holds and what is written for me in the future but I can't say I am aspiring to become a politician 

NIGERIAN GUYS ARE COMPLAINING BUT THEY DO NOT REMEMBER THAT THEY HAVE BEEN WINNING FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS IN A ROW AND NO ONE COMPLAINED, THIS IS EVERYONE’S SHOW, YOU CAN NOT ALWAYS BE A WINNER, JUST ADMIT THAT IDRIS WON THE BBA. WHEN YOU LOSE, LEARN TO APPRECIATE DEFEAT, YOU DON’T GET TO WIN ALL THE TIME. ( ISHEGUN DA PUPO, SUGBON ATI SHUBU JE INIRA )

Y’all must remember this, >> it was just how you show your character to the world and if you pleased us honestly you get it. Lets go back to the scene and reveal the negativity and positive of our contestants. Tayo, yes of course he showed his abilities but he did not read the probability beyond the house!!!! he seems to have walked away with the first prize prior to the finale. The winner Idris he has everything that the continent liked, discipline, joyous etc…
