Smubu is a game-changing music app in East Africa that allows users to stream their favorite songs whether they are at their desks working, driving their cars or taking an afternoon walk in nature. With SMUBU, you will be able to have your music with you and listen anywhere, even when offline.

 

It is an application that offers for the first time all Ugandan, Rwandan, and Tanzanian songs legally for free to stream and download. Users also can view the lyrics while listening to a song and can add that song in a custom-made playlist and much more.

 

Users are able to follow their favorite artists and they will be notified once they release a new song so that they have the priority to be the first ones to listen to it.

Statistics show that if you have Smubu on your phone, you’re most likely to listen to a newly released song before a week from anyone.

 

Unlike most of the emerging applications and websites recently, Smubu aims at providing international quality user experience, speed, and security for the artists’ tracks.

Also, users have the option to download as many songs as they want, and will be able to keep tuned when there is no internet or 3G connectivity.

Smubu gives the user a personalized music experience where for the first time a smart section has been introduced called “Just for You”, which will show you curated tracks based on your specific taste of music.

 

In addition, another section in the app shows you playlists that are tailored to your mood and activity so whether you feel happy, sad or energetic, Smubu has got you covered with all the music that matches your mood.

 

“With its user-friendliness, modern design and impressive speed, Smubu is the app that aims to take Ugandan and East African Music to the world noted Jad Aizarani, Co-founder, and CEO of SMUBU.

 

The prime goal of Smubu is to reduce music piracy in East Africa, which is currently very high.

The best feature of SMUBU app is a proprietary and patentable compression tool built inside the application which reduces the file size of streamed music what leads to minimal data consumption, it works on saving your data rather than wasting it! How cool is that!

A lot are trying to push East African artists internationally, but we are definitely betting on Smubu to do that.

 

The app is currently available for free on the Google Play store and very soon on the App Store.

You can download the application here:

And the good part is you can also quickly access Smubu’s entire music catalog on www.smubu.ug or www.smubuafrica.com

NASTY C, the 21-year-old rapper who is also aptly known as The Coolest Kid in Africa has released TODAY his highly anticipated sophomore effort, Strings And Bling.  The album landed at #1 spot on ITUNES and #2 on Apple Music. #StringsAndBling is also trending #1 on Twitter.

The seventeen track project, finds Nasty C rapping about his real life over production by the likes of American producers, Blu Magiq and Cxdy as well as Africa’s own Gemini Major, Tweezy, Gobbla, and up-and-coming trailblazer, Nani.  Guest appearances include A$AP Ferg, Ivyson Entertainment recording artist Rowlene and Kaien Cruz.

There is skillful storytelling on ‘Blisters’, where Nasty C incorporates pockets of Zulu to compliment a compelling narrative that includes a conversation with God.  On ‘SMA (Send Me Away),’ Rowlene, makes an appearance in an intense ditty about infidelity. Here, Nasty C reverses roles and lays bare the vulnerability of young love. ‘You Played Yourself’ showcases Nasty C’s knack for switching up flows and reinforces one message: always be yourself.

“Strings refers to the string instruments on the album but it also refers to the idea of a string of connections,” Nasty C comments. “There’s a connection to the first person I call when I get into trouble. A connection to the person I speak to when I’m low, the spirit – that’s my mother. There’s a connection to friends.”

“Bling is meant in the literal sense,” he continues. “But it also means to shine and be out there. It’s about being confident like how I say: ‘I was talking to God like I was talking to my bro/He said I gave you what you need to release your inner glow.’” Nasty C’s time to shine is now.
