More about:

When you see Zimbabwean band Mokoomba perform their hit single, you’d never guess the track is about a very traumatic experience in lead singer Mathias Muzaza’s life. ‘Njoka’, meaning ‘snake’ in their native Tonga, deals with a fatal snake bite. And in this video edition of My Song, Muzaza recalls seeing his best friend die right before his eyes because of it. 

My Song showcases the personal stories behind the songs of Africa’s most compelling musicians. You’ll hear these musicians in their own words. No presenter, no interviewer – nothing to get in the way. Just African voices on African music.

If there’s any recording artist you’d like us to know about, get in touch with us via Facebook or Twitter!
