Veteran Tanzania artiste Mr Nice, who was a big hit in Kenya in mid 2000s with songs such as "Fagilia", "Kidali Po" and "Kikulacho", says he does not need to compete with other musicians because he  already accomplished a lot in his hey day.

The musician was speaking to Bongo5 while also addressing the delayed release of his new video.

He said he decided to delay the release of his latest music video because he is not satisfied with its quality. The Bongo Flava artiste has said that the video to the song "Kioo" is below par and claims that had he released it, it would have diminished his stature as a

respected musician.

However, he is shooting another video and will release it as soon as it is done.

“The video to "Kioo" was ready but my management and I couldn’t release it because of the standards. I talked to the people closest to me and we decided it wasn’t something we would release. Fans should be ready because we have shot another one,” he said.
