Tanzania Music Federation (TMF) in collaboration with a committee coordinating the burial of the late Albert Mangwea, has asked Tanzanian to contribute funds in order to transport the body of the artist from South Africa.

TMF and the committee leaders told reporters in Dar es Salaam on Thursday Mangwea’s body is expected to arrive in the country from Johannesburg on Saturday. The committee spokesman Adam Juma said that Tanzanians are aware of the deceased’s contribution towards developing Bongo flava and urged them to participate in his burial.

For his part, TMF President Addo Mwasongwe asked Tanzanians to be patient as they wait for Mangwea’s body to arrive. Some of the artists who attended the press conference talked about how they were shocked by the late musician’s sudden death.
