BI KIDUDE MISSES BUSARA FESTIVAL FOR MALARIA CAMPAIGN
Tanzanian Taarab star Bi Kidude on Saturday snubbed the Busara festivals for malaria campaign gig in Dar es Salaam.
Bi Kidude was suposed to perform with Tausi Women's Taarab at the Sauti za Busara festival but the Malaria Campaign crew whisked her to Dar on a chartered plane.
This caused a heated debate between the organisers of both camps.
Organisers were heard having a heated conversation on phone with the Malaria Campaign organisers in Dar over the phone. "We had a rehearsal with her but we could not stop her from going because we were told that President Kikwete would grace the event so we had no option," said Mariam Hamdani, a group leader.
anyho, she gave a very impresive performance with Tanzanian bongo act Mwasiti.
