Rayvanny set to unveil first label signee

TANZANIA's Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) troupe's artist, Raymond Mwakyusa, popularly known as 'Rayvanny', is today expected to unveil his first signee under his record label, Next Level Music.

An up-and-coming Dar es Salaam artist, 'Mac Voice'.

He took to his Instagram account to announce the name of the new artist, who is known as 'Mac Voice'.

'Rayvanny' also announced that the official unveiling will be done today, together with the introduction of a new project.

The artist wrote: “God bless you @macvoice_tz 24/9/2021 it is your day All the best!!!”

He expressed hope that 'Mac Voice' will excel in Bongo Flava and also issued the latter advice on how to achieve success in the domestic music industry.

The artist revealed: “God gave you talent so it can help you and in life, you have to consider three issues, God, discipline, and effort.''

'Rayvanny' disclosed: ''If you consider those aspects, you will achieve success. What’s left is support from music lovers so that you can also help others in the future.''

'Mac Voice' is not a completely new artist in Tanzania's Bongo Flava scene.

Before signing with Next Level Music, he was managed by legendary Bongo Flava musician, Chege Chigunda, popularly known by his first name Chege.

The up-and-coming artist, thereafter, stopped working due to unknown circumstances.

Under Chege’s management, the artist was able to record and release songs such as 'Te Amo', 'Valentine', 'Utarudi', 'Damu ya Jana', and 'Bamba' among others.

'Rayvanny' had launched his record label, Next Level Music, shortened as NLM, back on March 9, 2021.

He revealed that he had always wanted to launch his record label so he can provide a great opportunity for young musicians to showcase their talents.

The label received a lot of praise from the artist and even WCB Chief Executive Officer and singer, Naseeb Abdul, 'Diamond Platnumz'.

The WCB boss stated in an interview: “I’m not sure if I’m allowed to talk about this but 'Rayvanny' is starting his label very soon.''

''That label is big. I was looking at his studios and told him, ‘Rayvanny', this studio is big’.''

The artist revealed: ''The day he will post it, as we speak, it will be the number one studio in the country.''
