Classic 105 radio presenter Maina Kageni on Thursday July 16 believed former Tanzanian musical genius Mr. Nice has something to offer to the world.
While speaking on his morning show, he vowed that he would pay for Mr Nice’s studio fees.
“I am looking for Mr Nice. I’ll pay for his studio fees and ensure he works with top producers such as Ayo Lizer and Magix Enga.” said Maina.
Kageni, a renowned radio presenter, has earned great respect among musicians and listeners and is also known to have deep contacts in the showbiz industry.
Mr. Nice, known for his Fagilia single which hit the airwaves 15-years ago, left his country two years ago after failing to compete against the likes of Diamond Platinumz and Ali Kiba and found refuge in Uganda from where he accused his compatriots of always mocking him on social media.
Having not succeeded both in his home country Tanzania and Uganda he finally settled in Kenya.
He is rumoured to be staying in Kitengela area. According to credible reports, he is doing okay and does not want any public attention.
“I prefer staying where I make money. Or do you (Tanzanians) prefer I stay home so you keep laughing at me? That is not appropriate, our President John Magufuli urges us to continue working hard and stop gossiping.” he said in a media interview earlier this year.
Mr. Nice was the biggest thing in East African music in the early 2000’s.
His real name is Lucas Mkenda. Mr. Nice came into the limelight in 1999 when he released his album Kidali Po. In the year 2002 he released another album titled Rafiki. Some of his tracks are Fagilia, Kidali Po, Rafiki among others.
