Music Journey and Breakthrough
The talented singer was born in Mwanza region and is the first born in the family of five. She completed her Primary school education in 1996 at Mnazi Mmoja and qualified to join Secondary school where she enrolled, but later put it on hold due to family challenges.
She started singing in Primary school where she was a member of her school's church choir. Her music journey started when she joined Wazazi Culture Troupe in Dar Es Salaam Tanzania, where she did covers of different already established Taarab singers but she was still unable to record her own songs.
In 2007, she was invited to Jahazi Moder
n Taarab, a band led by Mzee Yusuph. It is during this period that her music career became established. The first time she performed as a singer on stage was at Oysterbay's Military Hall where she performed 'Hayafiki'.
'Hayanifiki' was her first single as an artist. The song was written by coastal music king Mzee Yusuph and it was well received by fans in Tanzania and made her household name. The singer's career was further solidified around 2010 when Jahazi Modern dropped their 4th album titled 'VIP'. In the album, Isha Mashauzi wrote the song titled 'Ya Wenzenu Midomo Juu' which was one of the most loved songs in the album.
After leaving Jahazi Modern, the coastal music queen started her own band known as Mashauzi Classic. At Mashauzi Classic, she changed music styles and departed from the Old school Taarab songs and began exploring soft core Taarab songs where she collaborated and featured different Bongo Fleva artists in her songs such as Rich Mavoko, Fid Q, Kayumba, Stamina Shorwebwenzi, Christian Bella and RJ The DJ.
