Tanzanian afro-musician Fredrick Mulla is one of East Africa’s most promising crossover acts on the rise.
His most recent run of recordings has allowed him to demonstrate a wider musical spectrum after showcasing his lyrical prowess as a hip-hopper with the Morobuzz series. Although still anchored in rap, the collaborative EP Master Monondo from November 2022 welcomes production from several genres, including jazz, house, funk, and afrobeat.
Mulla is forging an alternate path to success through deliberate visual storytelling, collaboration, and cross-genre experimentation in an industry that prioritizes pop-leaning bongo-flava and taarab sounds.
