X Plastaz: Msimu kwa msimu

X Plastaz: Msimu kwa msimu

From the YouTube post:

"African music in the new millenium: X Plastaz from Tanzania with 'Msimu kwa msimu', their hit song from the album 'Maasai hip hop' (2004) which sounds like a crossover between Indian / Arab music, Swahili hip hop and an uptempo b-boy track. The music video is a parody of the Bongo Flava bling-bling videos in which artists tend to display cars, houses and money that's not theirs.

"This track was included on various compilations including Urban Africa Club and the Rough Guide to African Rap and used in a Landrover campaign."

"Beat by Kid Sundance (Fair Deal records).
Video by Manuel Rodriques."
