Tanzania: Singeli Genre Leaves Hallmark At Expo 2020

TANZANIAN music genre Singeli is fast gaining global conquest in Dubai, the venue of the highly successful Expo 2020.

Tanzanian pavilion showcased the youthful upcoming music genre in its pavilion during the Expo 2020 and it heads to climax on March 31 this year.

Sholo Mwamba and Saraphina Michael are the artistes who officially stamped the genre on the global face and won the hearts of multinationals attending the ongoing Expo 2020 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Their performance gave further mileage to country’s Bongo Flava and Singeli genres at the global level stage whose audience are people from all over the universe gathered there for business explorations.

Sholo Mwamba who spoke to music fans upon his return said the world has accepted the music genre since it is entertaining, danceable and good for exercising bodies.

“Fans adored the music and its dance,” he said upon his arrival at Julius Nyerere International Airport.

The Expo 2020 has been rewarding to Tanzanians as since the end of January 2022, they have been allowed to travel to the United Arabs Emirates (UAE) after the country lifted a ban it had imposed on all inbound and transit passenger flights.

The lifting of the ban is a huge relief to thousands of travellers from Tanzania as the Emirates Airline Country Manager, Majid Al Falasi confirmed that Tanzanians involved in business and arts sectors are now free to travel to Dubai.
