Music festival rocked the Dodoma city as funs from higher learning institutions particularly those from Dodoma University were treated with superb entertainment bash over the weekend.

The Royal Village, where the event was held saw hundreds of funs who turned out in huge numbers to attend the presumably biggest end of the year entertainment show.

The overnight bash courtesy of Str8Muzik left a mark in the Tanzanian capital and might take huge efforts for a gathering of such magnitude to happen again.

It was an event not to be missed as it attracted most of the young generation and was held in peaceful way as attendants left the venue early in the morning hours.

The subsequent Sunday was filled with talk shows across most of the Dodoma corners while everyone wondered the way it was organised.

The annual festival was electrifying and saw artiste after artiste take to the stage as funs partied and sang along.

It was also a great opportunity for winners of Str8Muzik Freestyle for the last three years battled it out on the same stage and the overall best Disco Jokey and Master of Ceremonies were unveiled.

Rotary Komba from Dar es Salaam emerged the best overall MC beating other past winners. Juma Ramadhani from Mwanza was crowned overall the best DJ.

Kenya’s musician Dennis Kaggia whose fans nicknames him as DNA secured an opportunity to perform his ‘Maswali kama polisi’ composition for the first time in Tanzania, a track that did not only take university funs off their feet but also prompted them to join in singing.

Another composition by the Kenyan ‘Ney wa Mitego’ did not also let fans down as revellers were kept spellbound during the show.

Several other Bongo Flava musicians including Roma Mkatoliki spiced up the show during the highly entertaining show of the year.

The stage was frequently stormed by artistes who kept funs busy as the cool breeze added more flavour during the ‘entertaining night of the year’.

To many revellers like Thomas Joseph, a fun from University of Dodoma, it was an exciting and entertaining display, a celebration of different genres of dance drawn from galore of artistes.

Most of the artistes treated the crowd to the performances much to the their delight while cheering and dancing eye-catching waist gyrations with unique flexibility and stamina.

The annual Str8Muzik Festival is organised by Tanzania Cigarette Company for funs in universities and institutions of higher learning and has been bringing in top artistes to perform over the years.
