Kroenke akaribia kumiliki club ya Arsenal

October 28, 2009

Mkurugenzi wa Arsenal Stan Kroenke  (pichani) amepiga hatua moja zaidi ambapo anaweza kujitolea kununua hisa zote za club hio.

Tajiri huyo wa Kimarekani amenunua hisa kumi zaidi kwa pauni £8,500 kila moja na kupandisha mchango wake katika hisa kufikia asili mia 28.9%.

Hiyo ina maana kwamba Bw. Kroenke ndiye mwenye hisa nyingi zaidi ya wengine, akimshinda tajiri kutoka Uzbekistan Alisher Usmanov, mwenye asili mia 24%. Bw. Kroenke anakaribia kiwango cha juu cha 29.99% ambapo itambidi atangaze nia ya kununua hisa zilizosalia.

Hata hivyo hisa zilizosalia zinashikiliwa na Wakurugenzi wanaozishikilia kwa mkono wa chuma. Bw.Kroenke anayemiliki club ya NBA huko Marekani Denver Nuggets amekua akinunua hisa za club ya Arsenal taratibu mwaka huu akidokoa kila fursa inayojitokeza kutoka kwa wanaotaka kuuza.

Pamoja na Bw.Kroenke, wengine wenye kifua katika kumiliki hisa kubwa ni Bw.Usmanov, Danny Fiszman na Lady Bracewell Smith. Hata hivyo haijaeleweka kama Bw.Kroenke ana nia ya kununua hisa zilizosalia kwa nia ya kuimiliki club nzima ya Arsenal au amenunua hisa hizo kwa ajili ya faida ya uwekezaji wa mda mrefu.

Rapper Gsan of the group X Plastaz from Arusha, Tanzania, is representing Africa in this year’s edition of the BET Hip Hop Awards, broadcast on October 27 on BET (Black Entertainment Television) in the USA. Meanwhile, X Plastaz’ dj/producer Threesixty is heard all around the world through his production for major hip hop artist Redman (Def Jam).

The annual BET Hip Hop Awards are watched by millions of hip hop fans across the United States. Especially the part of the show in which Gsan participates, titled the BET Hip Hop Awards cypher, is highly anticipated as it’s a true gathering of giants in rap music. The cypher, in which the artists go back to the raw essence of hip hop, sees legendary dj/producer Premier team up with emcees such as Mos Def, Black Thought, Eminem and Joe Budden. The section in which BET pays tribute to the growing popularity of hip hop from East Africa by including Gsan has the Arusha-born rapper performing alongside veteran rapper KRS One along with newcomers Wale and Nipsey Hussle.

The inclusion of X Plastaz in this year’s BET Hip Hop Awards came about when BET contacted X Plastaz, after seeing their music video ‘Nini dhambi kwa mwenye dhiki’ on the Youtube website. ‘Nini dhambi’ which has drawn over 400.000 views is one of the most popular East African music videos on the web. Gsan flew out to Brooklyn, New York where the cypher was pre-recorded in an empty factory building. His contribution was a rap in Swahili over an old school loop, cut up by dj Premier. While Swahili language hip hop was something new for the other artists, KRS One and Premier were full of love for the African input into this year’s cypher.

After recording the cypher, Gsan attended the Awards ceremony which took place in Atlanta on October 10, and which will finally be broadcast next tuesday, October 27.

Says Gsan in an interview with Emcee Africa presenter Lee Kasumba: "Well, the Cypher segment was recorded in New York before the actual award ceremony. For me, it was just amazing to be there with people like Eminem, KRS One, DJ Premier playing the beats, and being able to showcase what I had. Many people were blown away with what I did and asked me why I rhymed in Swahili ‘cause they wanted to understand. I was just like ‘English is not my first language, I speak it, I love it but you will be able to mess me up if I rhyme in English’. There were emcees from all over the world in one setting, and I was happy to represent for Africa. I wasn’t starstruck, just glad to showcase what I did and could do with my American counterparts. I mean, think of it, we really have the same names, just one word changes, African American and African, do you understand what that means?"

Also this week, X Plastaz dj Threesixty (real name: Bamba Nazar) is being hailed as a breath of fresh air in hip hop as his production for Def Jam-artist Redman was distributed across the internet. The beat reminds of the energetic old school sound of the late 1970’s and is a sureshot dancefloor filler. The song, titled ‘Coc Back’, is the first single off Redman’s long awaited new album titled ‘Reggie Noble 9.5’ which will be released in December. The video for ‘Coc Back’ will be out this week.

Watch Gsan from X Plastaz in the BET Hip Hop Awards cypher on tuesday, October 27 at 8 pm (EDT) on BET. Outside of USA the cypher can be watched on Youtube from the day after the Awards show.

Mfahamu Ferre Gola

October 25, 2009

image

Anaitwa Ferre Gola lakini jina lake halisi ni Hervé Gola Bataringe, alizaliwa mwaka 1976 huko Lingwala karibu na Kinshasa.

Katika ujana wake Ferre anasemwa kuwa alipenda sana kuimba na alipenda zaidi kuimba nyimbo wa wanamuziki waliotangulia akisemwa kuwa alikuwa mshabiki mkubwa sana wa Wenge Musica ya wakati huo kabla haijavunjika.  Binafsi sikuwa namjua kimuziki lakini nilitambulishwa na rafiki yangu LE Big Producer Maghambo ambaye aliniambia “Ferre Gola, A Man to watch” .

Wenge

Mwaka 1995 akiwa bado kijana mdogo Ferre alijitokeza kwenye onyesho la Wenge wakati huo ikiwa ni Wenge 4×4 na ndipo mwanamuziki Werason alipomuona na kugundua kipaji chake na kumpendekeza kwenye kundi la Wenge, Mwaka 1997 kundi la Wenge Musica BCBG 4×4 lilipanguka rasmi ka kuundwa makundi mawili Wenge BCBG ya JB Mpiana na Wenge Musica Maison Merre ya kwake Werason, Na Ferre alijiunga na Werasson lakini hakutambulika sana mpaka walipotoa albamu na yeye akatoka na wimbo Vita Imana ambao ulitokea kupendwa sana kwenye albamu ya Solola Bien yao WMMM. Pia alitamba tena na wimbo wa que-leu-leu katika albamu yao ya mwaka 2003.

Les Marquis

Mwana 2004 aliamua kuanzisha kundi lao waliloliita Les Marquis de Maison Mère akiwa na wanamuziki wenzie JDT Mulopwe, Bill Clinton Kalonji na huo ukawa mpasuko kwa WMMM, Hapo walifanikiwa kurekodi albamu moja kwa jina la Miracles est une réussite ikiwa na vibao kama ‘100 Kilos’, ‘Amour ya Interêt’, ‘Papitcho Nyanx’, na hii ilikuwa Albam pekee ya kundi hili na kundi kupanguka baada ya kutoelewana baina yao ambapo uongozi mbaya ilitajwa kuwa sababu ya wao kupanguka.

Quartier Latin

Mwaka 2004 Mwanamuziki Koffi Olomide aliamua kumchukua Ferre Gola ili akaungane na Fally Ipupa kwani pia Koffi alipoteza wanamuziki wake wengi ambao alitamba nao kipindi cha nyuma na hapo walitoka na Albam Danger de Mort ambapo Ferre alifanya mambo vilivyo na kuonyesha moto wake. Waliendelea vizuri lakini mwaka 2005 mwishoni malalamiko yalianza na mara ya kwanza alinakiliwa na mtandao wa Digital Congo akisema kuwa Koffi anakiuka mikataba waliotiliana wakati akimchukua na mwaka 2006 Ferre aliondoka kwa Koffi.

Kivyake

Baada ya hapo Ferre Gola aliamua kutoka kivyake kama Solo na alitoka na alikuwa akishirikishwa (featuring) kwenye nyimbo na albamu tofauti kama Doudou Copa (Terre Sacrée), Al Patshino na wengineo na wakati huo akijiandaa kutoka na albamu yake kivyake.

Mwaka 2007 Ferre alitoka na Albamu yake ya kwanza ambayo ilitamba sana katika Jamhuri ya Congo (Kinshasa) huku ikishika chati ya juu kwa muda mrefu. albamu hii ilikuwa na nyimbo kama

comme Biberon, Toucher Jouer, Meilleurs moments, Sans caution, n.k,  Si Congo peke yake kwani Ferre alifanikiwa kupata mikataba ya maonyesho mablai mbali kwa Ufaransa, Holland na Ubelgiji baada ya Albamu hii jambo ambalo lilionyesha kukubalika kwake zaidi.

image

Mwaka 2008 Ferre alitoka na Albamu mpya iliyokuwa katika CD 2 ikiwa na jina la Lubukulukumu. ambayo ilifadhiliwa na Primus, kinywaji kinachopendwa sana Congo. Albamu hiii ilikuwa na remix ya tungo zake kama Vita Imana na nyinginezo ambazo aliwahi kiutamba nazo.

Kwa leo tunaishia hapa usikose wiki ijayo ambapo tutakuletea sehemu ya Pili ya mwanzmuziki huyu hasa tukizungumzia maonyesho yake kwa mwaka 2008 na 2009 na pia albamu yake ambayo iko sokoni ya Qui est derriere toi yaani nani yuko nyuma yako ambayo ni albamu yake mpya.

Fere Gola anatarajia kutumbuiza Dar Es Salaam karibuni

Kocha Mbrazil aliyewahikushinda kombe la Dunia Carlos Alberto Parreira anarejea kazi yake ya zamani kuinoa Afrika Kusini.

Chama cha mpira wa miguu cha Afrika Kusini kimethibitisha kurejea kwa Parreira katika mkutano uliofanyika Johannesburg.

Parreira anachukua nafasi iliyooachwa wazi kufuatia kuondoka kwa Joel Santana siku ya Jumatatu.

Rais wa chama cha soka cha Afrika Kusini Kirsten Nematandani, amesema haikuwa kazi rahisi kwa kamati kuu kufikia uamuzi huu.

Ameendelea kusema ni jambo la muhimu kwa sababu ya wakati walionao kuhakikisha Parreira anafika mapema na kuendeleza mchakato wa kuinoa timu haraka.
