BIOGRAPHY

John Simon known by his stage name as Joh Makini (who was born on August 27 in Arusha), is a Tanzanian Swahili Hip Hop artist. He has been involved in music since 1995, but it was until 2004 when his name started to be spoken in almost reverential terms. This coincided with the release of ‘Hawapendi’, quickly followed by ‘Hao’.

In 2006 the single ‘Chochote, Popote’ confirmed his reputation and was a massive hit all over Tanzania. JohMakini released his first album, ‘Zamu Yangu’, late 2006. The album contained hits such as ‘Chochote, popote’, ‘Hao’, ‘Tommorrow’ and ‘Kama Kawa’. This was followed by another string of hit singles including ‘Ufalme’, ‘Muda’, ‘Kila Wakati’ and ‘Niaje, ni vipi’, ‘Stimu zimelipiwa’.

To date, his new single ‘Don’t Bother’ ft. AKA has become a national hit and has received massive radio and television airplay all over Africa.
