Celebrated Tanzanian musician Zuchu has released the dance video to her latest hit dubbed ‘Nyumba Ndogo’.
‘Nyumba Ndogo’ is a Singeli tune where Zuchu addresses her co-wife, explaining to her why the husband decided to marry a second wife.
According to Zuchu, the first wife failed to cater for the husband’s needs, thus prompting him to seek an additional wife.
“Yamenifika kwa koo! We mwanamke mwenzangu…Bwana ako analalamika kila akija nyumbani, eti hujui kupika, kula kwako hatamani, kwangu lakipenda tembele toto laini laini… Nimemganda mumeo kama kichwa na kisogo…,” Nyumba Ndogo’s lyrics read in part.
The ‘Nyumba Ndogo’ dance video features several dance styles that include; Zungusha Kiuno, Anda Bese, and Changamkeni.
Zuchu and her dance team are in sync all throughout the video, making it a must-watch project especially for lovers of dance.
In a bid to make the dance video engaging and more appealing, Zuchu has edited part of the song’s lyrics adding a section that reads “Mchezo wa Kichina, Zungusha Kiuono chako… Twendeni changamkeni changamkeni.’
The dance video has been well received, gaining more than a quarter a million views in less than a day. This is an indication that ‘Nyumba Ndogo’ dance is going to be a massive trend in the coming days.
