After this big hit song “Hoi,” she gained popularity and eventually started her solo career in 2008 with MJ Records. This career has been very successful thusfar. Her latest album released in 2010 “Zamu Yangu” meaning “It’s my turn” proves that Shaa is a great contender in the contest for Tanzania’s best artist.
