Who Is Vanessa Mdee?
Vanessa Mdee became popular in her native Tanzania as a radio and TV host. She’s had success as a singer and rapper, releasing her debut album Money Mondays in 2018.
The answer is YES!
A year and a half ago the world laughed at me when I said I knew YOU were my husband only days after spending time with you. I didn’t blame them, after all it’s an uncommon and inexplicable feeling when you meet your soulmate. ( Also they’d met the Vee who had no plans to be married).
On my 30th birthday my plans for the years to come were so different from where we are now, but GOD laughs when we are making plans.Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for YOU, they are plans for good and not for disaster, to give YOU a future and a hope.
Honestly, my future was feeling bleak and I was losing hope in what I thought was a perfect plan.
And then I met YOU.
… YOU saved my life in ways only a man appointed and anointed by GOD could. There are no words to describe the power of surrendering to GOD and in this case to LOVE. GOD IS LOVE! I spent my whole life searching for joy and peace in things and places that couldn’t offer nothing but a temporary high. With your love I bask in abundance. For everything I did right GOD blessed me with YOU.
The answer is YES! YES TO my best friend, YES to my soulmate, YES to the love of my life. Over and over and over again in EVERY lifetime. How you located me in this time and loved me in ways only YOU could is a testament to GOD’s divine order of things and FAVOR and GRACE.
And suddenly it all makes sense.

Rotimi Addresses Breonna Taylor Injustice In Powerful Video
Last year, the popular performer dropped an unexpected “Unity” music video aimed at addressing the trend of police brutality happening across the United States and Black Lives Matter movement.
The “Unity” music video promotes social change through use of striking visuals that spotlight the world coming together for recent racial justice movements. Opening with Rotimi dressed in an all-white ensemble, his surroundings set as a backdrop for the powerful images of recent events. His opening phrase “Let’s talk about unity“ is repeated as clips of police brutality, mass protests, devastating wars, and desolation flash before the viewers eyes. As Rotimi sings “Whole world / at a standstill, we’re fighting for justice, no need for division, no, we all got a purpose,” a montage of recent Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ+ protests, coronavirus footage, and images of Martin Luther King Jr. transition from scene to scene showcasing the state of our world, both past and present.
