Mayunga won the Airtel Trace Music Star Pan African singing competition in 2015 and went on to sign a recording deal with Universal Music South Africa, for the release of his debut single Nice Couple. The video was shot in South Africa and premiered and went on massive rotation on the TRACE channel.
Mayunga’s next stop was Los Angeles, California in the USA where he met mega star Akon for a mentorship program, and recorded a song on Akon’s very own Konvict label; and later shot a music video to the track with the superstar. After this once-in-a-life-time meeting with Akon, Mayunga returned to Tanzania and signed a new recording deal with TRACE France, under which the Akon produced song Please Don’t Go Away is released.
Please Don’t Go Away is set for radio release across Tanzania on Monday the 16th of May 2016 on XXL Clouds FM, and Mayunga is scheduled to begin a media tour to promote both the track and Airtel Trace Music Star Season 2 Tanzania Finale, which takes place in Dar es salaam on Friday May the 20th.
Mayunga’s new music video—shot entirely in Hollywood, will be unveiled at the ATMS event. The Tanzanian rising star will also perform the song live for all invited guests and media. Mayunga is managed by Joett Music and can be booked for live shows via
