Darassa - No. 1 artiste in East Africa right now: MDUNDO Stats


Tanzanian hip hop artiste Darassa is currently topping on Mdundo charts after the release of his hit songs "Muziki" and "Hasara Roho". Charts on Mdundo auto-update themselves based on the number of downloads of particular songs.

"Over the past few months, it has been a highly competitive space with Darassa, Willy Paul and The Kansoul all taking the Number 1 song spot for a few weeks each and has had a huge impact on overall artist ranking,” said Mdundo Digital Marketing Lead, Dennis Wairey, in a statement. He added,“Charts are a central part of Mdundo and they make up the songs visible to users on the homepage of the website, they auto update themselves every day and are purely based on the number of downloads a song gets. 

Known for his hit song ‘Muziki’ featuring Ben Pol, Tanzania’s hip-hop star Darassa has been rising on Mdundo Charts each day and now to the number one spot. Having recorded his first song in 2014, the Tanzanian rapper has been on the music scene for quite a number of years. It was until in 2016 when ‘Muziki’ and ‘Weka Ngoma’ hit the airwaves that he came to the limelight and his music career has been soaring hit after hit.

Darassa recently released a new song "Hasara Roho" which is currently one of the top trending hits on Mdundo as well as on Youtube. ‘Muziki’ has over 7 million views at the moment.
