After “Iokote” Success, Maua Sama Reveals Her Biggest Dream

One of the most successful songs to come out of Tanzania is notably “Iokote” by Maua Sama. The singer has something to be proud of as she moves into the next phase of her career. 

The video currently has over 19 million views on YouTube. In our exclusive interview with her, Maua Sama revealed that the song did not come without its challenges. Despite it being a blessing, it landed her into trouble.

She said that she spent days in prison because when she was promoting the song, Sama posted an inappropriate video that got Tanzanian authorities irked. Now that all of that is in the past, the petite, super-talented singer has more plans for her life.

“My biggest dream is to be able to sell my music be known by everybody and of course to win big awards like the Grammys. I just want to become a global artist,” she told us exclusively.

Sama had something special to tell her Kenyan fans, too. We all know that most Tanzanian artists have a valuable Kenyan market; that’s why they do as much as they can to maintain a good relationship with Kenya. It could be the reason why Diamond dated Tanasha.

“My Kenyan fans are like the best fans. They are lovable and of course, they love me, they supported me from the start and Kenya is like my second home. I really love every fan that I have from Kenya. I look forward to working with Kenyan artists too. Kenya is fans are just the best,” she reiterated.

Lately, Sama has been riding high with her club banger release, “Kan Dance”. The song is not what you would traditionally expect from her.
