Tanzanian rapper and politician Professor Jay has released his first song since being elected to Parliament in 2015 as the Member of Parliament for Mikumi constituency.

The song is titled Kibabe and the renowned rapper is already promoting the song on radio and social media. Asked where he gets the time to still do music while on a busy schedule, the rapper told XXL Clouds FM:

“I’m blessed because I don’t take too much time writing songs, when I get a pen and paper that’s it, it’s done, I have a well of poetry and writing has never been an issue... I get a little time here and there when I’m done working, serving my constituents,” he said.

He is now working on the video.

“I had to represent Mikumi, because I’m an MP who represents my people and the wildlife there, the video is so creative and at the same time we are selling ourselves us a tourist attraction. There are great directors and beautiful locations in Tanzania,” he said about the video which is yet to be released.

The rapper also revealed that his wedding is set for July this year. He proposed to his longtime girlfriend last year on December 31st.

“Jiandaeni kumeza ulimi kwa sababu vigelegele vitapigwa muda sio mrefu. The wedding will be soon, in July. We are leaders now so future plans must be out in the open,” he said.
