    So many people have been concerned, and asking so many questions why Tanzanian Female Rapper Nazizi Hirji of the Necessary Noize fame has been lately expanding her ears.

    The piercing and stretching of earlobes is most common among the Maasai as with other tribes in East Africa and both men and women wear metal hoops on their stretched earlobes.

    Nazizi has relatively answered that it’s part of their culture as a tribe from Southern Tanzania.

    “Widening ears is part of our culture. My grandmother and my great grandmother Nazizi all had theirs ears expanded traditionally,” she explained.

    She revealed lately that being mixed race, she always struggled with identity and never felt like she fitted in anywhere but she always sought to connect with all the cultures she came from.

    “I will soon share the story on my double nose piercing. I want you to see the original Nazizi,” the rapper added.

    Not so much is known of Nazizi, except that the rapper is a 40 year old mom of a 10 year old son who earned her enduring nickname as the First Lady of Hip Hop around East Africa with the Necesary Noize originally composed of herself, Wyre and Bamzigi.

    Nazizi further shared a little bit of her family history and origin of her name.

    “My Father Firoz Hirji is half Indian and half Tanzanian. His father came from Kolkata and his mother from Mbozi which is in Mbeya, Southern Tanzania,” Nazizi explains, adding that he named her after his grandmother.

    Na, according to the rapper is the title for the first born daughter followed by their mother’s name .

    “The literal meaning of my name is Na ( first born daughter of..) zizi ( root in kiswahili). Hence I am the first born daughter of root. That’s why I’m super proud to be the ROOTS DAUGHTER,” Nazizi narrated with so much joy.

    She expressed so much pride in parents giving her an African name having been born in those times when English names were the norm.

    NUP party boss Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (L) and Joseph Mayanja (R) alias Bobi Wine

    National Unity Platform (NUP) party boss Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has cautioned fellow artiste Joseph Maayanja alias Chameleone on leaving the cause for the oppressed.

    “Mr. Chameleon’s decision to abandon the oppressed and joined a dictator was his own and I cannot stop him,” Kyagulanyi said in a televised interview on Tuesday.

    “Chameleon like other oppression figures, will be judged by his own actions,” Kyagulanyi added.

    Chameleon having declared over the weekend that he is a true member of the NRM, also revealed that he has never belonged to Kyagulanyi’s NUP.

    After distancing himself from NUP party, Chameleon received a brand new Range Rover from President Museveni’s young brother Nuwagira Michael alias Toyota.

    “My friend Toyota, I am still your family. I have never left NRM, if you doubt that put up your cameras and record me,” Chameleon said.

    During 2021 election campaigns, Chameleon worked closely with NUP having hopes of receiving the party card for the position of Kampala Lord Mayor which he was later denied.

    “Chameleon’s jumping ship not only placed him in bad light as a person who loves riches but also spoke volumes about his self-worth,” Kyagulanyi said.

    “My brother Chameleon should know that when I talked to him and we introduced our beliefs to the people, we said these were not beliefs of Kyagulanyi but Ugandans,” he added.

    Kyagulanyi confirmed that Chameleon came out like others and professed that he was abandoning a dictator and joining the oppressed.

    “So if he wakes up one morning and decides to abandon the oppressed to re-join the dictator to get some money or a car, for me as a person I can’t decide for him, but we will be judged by our actions.”

    Kyagulanyi cautioned that he is not only looking at a person who is hungry for riches but also a person whose sense of self-worth and self dignity is questionable.
