P-Unit, Fally Ipupa and Joh Makini are set to storm Dar es Salaam’s Maisha Club for another breathtaking edition of the Road to MAMA, the whirlwind party tour brought to you by MTV base and Zain.
Head down to Maisha Club in Dar es Salaam on Friday 19 November for a mesmerizing evening of Africa’s finest urban beats, starring music giants from across the Continent. Alongside Fally Ipupa; P-Unit and Joh Makini, the DJs ripping it up on the decks will include local heroes DJ PQ and DJ Steve B, while MTV VJ Vanessa Mdee will be presiding masterfully over the proceedings as MC.

Part of a pan-African musical celebration, Road To MAMAs - Tanzania is one of two thrilling Road To MAMA events building up to the third edition of the MTV Africa Music Awards with Zain, which takes place in Lagos on 11 December 2010. The Road To MAMAs tour will also visit the DRC on Saturday 27 November.
Speaking about the show, Sam Ellangaloor, Zain Tanzania’s Managing Director, said; “The choice of Dar-es-Salaam as a venue of one of the MTV Africa Music Awards with Zain’s two pre-event shows is an indication of the positive impact that our local music genres such as Bongo are having in the continent. Zain Tanzania and MTV Networks Africa will work around the clock to ensure that this will be a showpiece event.”
Making his first Road To Mama appearance, Fally Ipupa is one of the DRC’s most exciting music exports, thanks to his silky-smooth voice, songwriting skills and larger–than-life personality. Ipupa, who will also be performing at the MAMAs in Nigeria, is nicknamed Dicap La Merveille (DiCaprio the marvellous) by his Congolese fans and has gained an international following for his infectious blend of soukous, ndombolo, pop and R&B. Joining Ipupa will be Kenyan hip hop trio, P-Unit and local spinners DJ Steve B (well known to music fans via his Clouds FM radio show XXL) and DJ PQ.
Doors at Maisha Club will be open from 8pm, with the party scheduled to go through to the next morning. Tickets will be available on the door at Maisha Club and cost 20,000 TSH.
