HABIDA RELEASES A NEW JAM TITLED SWEET LOVE

habidasmalMTV-award winning Kenyan songbird Habida Moloney has released her new single SWEET LOVE.

A solid entrant back into the music scene, the song is Habidas ode to her family, Kenya, and the music industry. It touches on all the little and big things that make her love Kenya so passionately.

In SWEET LOVE, Habida features Ghanaian crooner JTown, who is celebrated for his genuine talent and having some of Ghanas best rhymes. The jazzy R&B song was engineered by UK music geniuses and co-produced by the acclaimed UK-based African producer Silvastone.

Fresh from welcoming a new baby, touring and traveling in the past several months, Habidas latest single is also a special Valentines Day dedication to her fans and marks her comeback.

This song is a different sound from the usual Habida sound because I have grown as a woman, wife and mother, Habida explains. I wrote SWEET LOVE while I was homesick and missing all the little things that make Kenya unique like Swahili Food.

Habida is planning an exclusive listening party soon to celebrate the song and some major announcements. She is inviting 10 of her super fans to join her at the upcoming invite-only event. Additional info: www.capitalfm.co.ke

TUPAC'S MUCH ANTICIPATED BIOPIC TO BE RELASED MID 2017

tupacA long-awaited biopic on slain rap legend Tupac Shakur is set for release in mid-2017, the film production company said Tuesday.

All Eyez On Me, named after the title of one of Tupacs albums, will come out in US theaters on June 16, which would have been the rappers 46th birthday, Summit Entertainment said.

The movie project was announced nearly six years ago with previous participants to include John Singleton, a director closely linked with hip-hop culture whose previous films included 1993s Poetic Justice, a drama starring Tupac and Janet Jackson.

But the film underwent a series of personnel changes and missed a goal of release in time for the 20th anniversary of Tupacs still murky 1996 killing in Las Vegas.

All Eyez on Me was ultimately led by veteran music video director Benny Boom. Tupac will be played by little-known actor Demetrius Shipp, Jr., whose father was a producer for Tupac.
