Due to the cohesive nature that he produces music in East Africa, research firm Research 8020 inevitably found him to be Tanzania’s most marketable artist.

Bongo hitmaker Ali Kiba, known for his mellow vibes in his music, however, wasn’t far behind as he came in fourth, with his 2012 song Mwana being among the most sought after in recent years.

One of the main reasons Ali Kiba may have faltered in his musical success is the fact that he is taking on other projects, including realizing his childhood dream of becoming a footballer.

For Rich Mavoko, it was especially commendable that he still had an impact in the competitive musical jungle of Tanzania, especially after breaking up with Diamond’s Wasafi records.

A similar investigation was carried out in the Kenyan musical arena with surprising results.
