My Version of the "Malaika" Song: A Valentine's Day Composition..


"Malaika" is a popular classic Swahili song from Tanzania. I used to hear this song played over and over on the radio when I was young. The song became popular worldwide when it was performed by "Mama Africa," the late Miriam Zenzile Makeba from South Africa, when she was exiled in the USA..

I made this clip as my version of the Malaika song on Valentine’s Day for lovers all over the world. In the near future, I am planning to record and perform this song with the Mfalme Band.
