Fast rising Tanzanian Singer Alawi Omari Alawi commonly known as Lody Music is the talk of the town with his song ‘Kubali’ advocating for peaceful break up when love dies in a relationship.
We’ve had alot of negative happenings when lovebirds no longer see each other eye to eye, from suicide,Killings and bodily maimings increasing numbers of gender based violence .
The artist cleverly tackles this phenomenon. “Amekuacha, umeachwa Kubali, kubali utampata wako mtapendana kwa dhati, amekuacha we, umeachwa Kubali mapenzi yanauma we” – You’ve been dumped accept, you’ll find your soul mate accept love hurts, is a loose translation of Lody Music’s chorus. “Usilazimishe utazeeka vibaya- don’t force love you’ll age poorly, “ Sings Lody Music in a soulful emotional vibe.
Musical Roots Runs In Family
The ‘Promise’ Singer attributes his love for music through his late father who was a Taarab singer and composer. He experienced fast hand compositions from his big man and fell in love with the craft.
“Kipaji changu cha kuimba nilitambua tangu nikiwa mdogo yaani sababu babangu alikuwa mtunzi wa Taarab marehemu tayari alishafariki so alikuwa anaandika andika mistari tukiwa nyumbani mi nilikuwa namwona… Ni mtunzi mzuri sana wa Taarab hiyo ikanipeleka mimi kujifunza vitu vingi sana,” he explained during an interview with Online Global Publishers.
