Her music and refreshing attitude are not the only things underlying our new obsession with Vanessa Mdee, the Tanzanian songstress’s dress sense also caught our attention when we bumped into her before she took to the stage at the recent African Music Concert at Nasrec. There, she not only gave a stellar performance that had the audience forgetting all about the cold, but she was also clad to kill.
She gushed about how Tanzanian girls are fearless when it comes to going after they want, and that is not hard to see. What we haven’t seen and heard though, is much of her music on our airwaves. And if it wasn’t for the good old Shazaam at our disposal during the show, we could have gone on with our lives sleeping on Mdee. Well, not anymore.
The free spirited 27 year old beauty really is breath of fresh air, firstly because of how she is fast becoming one of the most successful music exports from Tanzania to Africa and the world at large. But also because she appears to be a free spirit. “I am about to show you how we Tanzanian girls do it”, she disclaimed on stage before getting down and pulling some of her sexiest moves on the stage.
One does wish to have had more time to chat to Vanessa about her music, fashion and other duties she has under her busy belt. But that did not mean we did not have a moment for some great snaps
We swear This girl is about to blow up in South Africa, but you just don’t know it yet.
