Tanzanian Bongo RnB star Marioo has dropped a new emotive song dubbed ‘Asante’.
‘Asante’ is a Swahili phrase for Thank you. In the song Marioo comes out as a man that is deeply hurt by what he thought was love.
“Hivi mapenzi ni kitu gani, mbona sasa hayana huruma mmmhh haya mapenzi yana nini?Huku mbele ahh yamekuja kuwaje?Aah mmhh ghafla kila nachofanya hakimpendezi eti namkera na kasema akinifumania wala haimchomi….” the song’s lyrics read in part.
So far, only the audio version is available on YouTube.
While promoting the song, Marioo posted a noose used to commit suicide on his Instagram without captioning it, thus causing a stir.
The post sent panic among fans even attracting the attention of his fellow music friends who wanted to enquire more about the post.
Many were torn between linking the post to an upcoming project or the singer had suicidal thoughts.
Some of the celebrities who reacted to the post include Mwikaju, Producer Abbah, Romy Jones, Whozu, Shetta, and Tanasha Donna.
There was more panic when Abbah revealed that he has been attempting to contact Marioo but without success.
“Mdogo wangu nakupigia simu sikupati na sikuelewi unanichanganya,” posted Abbah.
