Updates from Mac Voice
Who is Mac Voice?
Khamis Shaban Makalanga, popularly known as Mac Voice, is a 23-year-old Tanzanian artist. He was born and raised in Bagamoyo in the coastal region. His parents reportedly separated while he was 2-years-old. He was consequently raised by his mother who was a small-scale business person.
He dropped out of school while in form one due to financial constraints. His mother could not afford to pay for the fees, and the manual jobs she did were not enough to sustain the family. It is after dropping out of school that the youngster decided to pursue his passion for music. He moved from Bagamoyo to Dar es Salaam in pursuit of his dream to be a superstar.
After moving to the city, he continued to produce music. He released several songs with the help of his friends who assisted him financially. Fortunately, his hard work bore fruits as celebrated musician Chege fell in love with one of his songs. It is at that point that Chege took Mac Voice and started working with him at his record label called Unique Voice Music (UVM).
Mac Voice under UVM released several hits including ‘Damu Ya Ujana’, ‘Mama J’ and ‘Utarudi’. As fate would have it, Rayvanny also fell in love with the songs from Mac Voice. Rayvanny, being a good friend of Chege, negotiated a deal that saw him get signed as the first artist under his Next Level Music (NLM) record label.
In September 2021, Rayvanny officially introduced him as the first signed artist under Next Level Music. Alongside the introduction, came the first EP from the rising star. The EP which was titled ‘My Voice’ housed five songs; 'Nenda', 'Tamu' ft Rayvanny, 'Nampenda' ft Rayvanny, 'Pombe' ft Rayvanny ft Leon Lee, and 'Mama Mwenye Nyumba'.
The EP performed extremely well with some of its singles accumulating more than one million views on YouTube. He was met with a warm reception from various stakeholders in the music industry. Several top Tanzanian stars, especially those from WCB welcomed him to the industry with both hands. Among the bigwigs who had kind words for the youngster were Zuchu, Mbosso, and Diamond Platnumz.
The introduction of Mac Voice was followed by a media tour which further increased his popularity among the fans. Many were not only in love with the high-quality production of his tracks but also his melodious voice.
