JUMA NATURE & WANAUME FAMILY

“Wanaumeeeee!!!” a voice bellows to the crowd who shout back “Eeeeeeh!!!” Then again and again and again the chants follow one another, and the show is underway….

That is Juma Nature a.k.a Sir Nature, Tanzania’s most talented hip hop artists. His ability to play with words and creativity in composition and flowing “kighettoghetto” is something which most hip hop artists in the world fail to come close to.

Juma Nature a.k.a Sir Nature (born Juma Kassim Ally) is a founder member of a Temeke group called Wanaume, an informal group of rappers from the poor side of Dar es Salaam.

Nature is one of the best, well known and most creative artists in the Bongo Flava Swahili hip hop genre, not only is he a great composer and uniquely talented rap artist but also gifted with a soulful and touching voice.

The other main reason for his popularity throughout East Africa is of course the topics of his songs, which deal with real and pertinent issues to the majority of local people. “Umoja wa Watanzania” from his 2004 album Ugali, for example, pleads for peaceful resolution to political misunderstandings between two rival parties, the ruling CCM and CUF, reminding people of what could be the outcome of a political crisis.

“Utajiju” (“it’s up to you”) from his brand new album Ubin-Adam Kazi is a song about people who like to poke their noses into others’ business.

In the hilarious lyrics of this song Nature himself at one point assumes the role of a woman who sees Juma Nature for the first time “huyo Juma Nature mwenyewe mbayaaa” (“So this is Juma Nature, but he is so ugly”). Nature is referring of course to life in Dar es Salaam

Due to his popularity this woman expected to see him expensively dressed and handsome. Nature has always been a musician who knows what his fans want, he gives them what they want and much more. Nature’s real-life experience in the poor areas gives him the material and inspiration for his compositions and Tanzania being one of the world’s poorer countries, he is an artist with a lot of fans.

Wanaume Family is a unit of different artists namely Juma Nature, Wachuja Nafaka, GWM / Gangsters with Matatizo [Problems], Wangoto Family, and Gangwe Mobb.

Wanaume Family developed with the aim of sharing ideas on how to use Swahili hip hop positively, national and international promotion and using their unity as a means of helping other upcoming artists.

The sense of their togetherness is often seen in their performances with their creative one line “mapanga Shwaaa! Shwaaaa!” dance which drives fans to a near frenzy.

And their unique dancing style, that of kicking high and jumping up and down and doing the neck dance, is simply breathtaking. No wonder they now get invited to perform infront of elite audiences, the latest being last saturday during the wedding party of Heri Bomani, son of Judge Mark Bomani, former attorney general of Tz.

The guests list that read like the who-is-who in Dar included Former Kenya's attorney general Charles Njonjo (in his trade mark pin-stripped suit, polka dolta tie, hand-made shirt and a british wife), former zanzibar prez dr salmin amour and other dignitaries.

The story here is that Sir Nature and his Wanaume Family were wildly cheered by all.

    kuna jambo moja napenda tuelewane kwamba HIp Hop ilisha kufa zamani hata kwetu akuwahi kufika.
    Hip Hop ilijengwa kwenye misingi mitano ambayo wasnii wa hivi sasa hawaifuati ndo mana tunasema kwanba imekufa.
    Hip Hop ni kwonledge lakini wasanii wa sasa hawana knowledge wanakaa tu hawasomi vitabu wala hawana mawazo mapya wao wanchofanya ni kutuimbia Beef zao zo mitaani ambazo sisi hazitusaidii kitu vilevile hata huko America nako kuko hivyohivyo wasanii wanajifia tu
