Husna and Hawa Mkungo aka Kioo is a duo female act that was discovered by Panamusiq in mid 2015. Kioo in kiswahili means mirror as the two girls are identical twins.
After few months of vocal training with Tanzania's best vocal coach, Joett, Kioo started recording this EP album with C9, one of Tanzania's leading producers who is also signed to Panamusiq.
EP stands for Extended Play album. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, an EP is defined as containing three to five songs or under 30 minutes.
Panamusiq has decided to go for this format of debut release to make Kioo immediately appealing for bookings by club and event promoters.
The tracklist includes songs with different sounds and vibes to show the incredible versatility of the twin act. One track, “Hayana Ufundi”, features Bongo Flava superstar Dully Sykes.
Other tracks are: “Unaweza”,”Love me back” and “Nachukua time” which gives the title to the EP album and is also proposed in a bonus acoustic version.
All tracks are written by Kioo and composed and produced by C9. Panamusiq acted as Executive Producer in this project.
The album is currently available on iTunes and will be released on all major music stores worldwide on Friday 13th May 2016.
