East Africa’s Leading Female Act Vanessa Mdee Releases Money Mondays!

In what may have seemed to be the longest wait, Vanessa Mdee fans have finally received their Money Mondays. The Multi Award winning Tanzanian songstress who released her debut single in 2013 has finally delivered on her long awaited promise of a full length LP; Money Mondays. When asked why the long wait Vanessa simply said “The time wasn’t right” hailing from a dead album culture, she is pioneering in bringing back the album culture to Tanzania after her counterparts Navy Kenzo, who dropped their debut AIM early last year. It is without a doubt that Vanessa has captured the ears and eyes of many and this makes Money Mondays one of the most anticipated releases of 2018.

With progressive sounds from the production of her longtime producer Nahreel on Wet and Floating on a Wave, to classic Bongo Flava touch with that Bob Manecky on Just The Way You Are there’s a little bit of everything for her diverse fan base. VeeMoney even spits a few bars on this 17 song EP with a special additional feature with Jamaica’s Konshens that can be found exclusively on the brand new VeeMoney app. Other features include Nigeria’s Reekado Banks, Uganda’s Radio & Weasel, South Africa’s Casper Nyovest and K.O, Tanzanian stars Jux, G. Nako & Joh Makini without forgetting Maua Sama and Tommy Flavour on her latest single Bounce.

2018 is already looking great for Mdee Music. You can sample Vanessa Mdee’s Money Mondays, here: https://audiomack.com/album/therealvanessamdee/money-mondays

Nigeria summons U.S. embassy official over Trump's 'shithole' comment

Nigeria’s government on Monday summoned a representative of the the U.S. ambassador to explain reported remarks by President Donald Trump that immigrants from Africa and Haiti come from “shithole countries”, the foreign ministry said.

Foreign Minister Geoffrey Onyeama “sought clarification on the veracity or otherwise of the substance of the remarks, stressing that if they were true, they were deeply hurtful, offensive and unacceptable”, the ministry said in a statement.

Trump reportedly made the remarks at a private meeting with lawmakers on immigration on Thursday. A U.S. senator who attended the gathering said the president used “vile, vulgar” language, including repeatedly using the word “shithole” when speaking about African countries.

The Nigerian foreign ministry statement noted the “very warm and cordial relations that presently exist” between Nigeria and the U.S.

The United States, represented by Deputy Chief of Mission David J. Young as the ambassador was not in Nigeria, said there were contradictory accounts as to whether the remarks were made, the statement said.

In a separate statement, a U.S. embassy spokesman said Young “reiterated the excellent relations that exist between the United States and Nigeria and they discussed future cooperation between the two countries”.

The U.S. president on Friday denied using such derogatory language. But he has been widely condemned in many African countries and by international rights organisations. African Union countries demanded an apology on Friday.
