Sarah Kaisi, now commonly known as SHAA, is a 24 year old talented Tanzanian musician in every sense of the word. This daring young Diva was born on the 7th of November 1985 in a family of four and lives in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. As described by her friends and family, SHAA is a vibrant, beautiful, crazy (in a good way) and creative person with a unique sense of style.
SHAA grew up in a musical family and her debut into the music industry took place in early 2004 with the group WAKILISHA of the East Africa Coca Cola Pop stars. With the hit single Hoi under their belts SHAA and her fellow group members won themselves a spot in the Tanzania music industry. However, due to her studies and personal goals, SHAA left the group and went to Washington DC to further her studies in another passion of hers which is Art. Nevertheless, SHAA made sure to always leave her fans with something to remember her with. Therefore, during her studying period, SHAA released two singles under the management of WAKILISHAs previous manager.
In October 2008 SHAA landed herself a major record deal with a prominent record label in Tanzania called MJ Records. Under MJ Records, SHAA has managed to record her first Solo Album named ZAMU YANGU which means ITS MY TURN. According to SHAA this album is called that because her X-group members have already released their solo projects so now its high time her fans hear from her.
The album ZAMU YANGU carries Ten songs and influenced by many of SHAAs favorite music genres such as Zouk, Reggae and Bongo Flavor (Tanzanias Sound). Singles from the album have had rave reviews not only in Tanzania but across the entire East Africa. This young diva is a complete package and an electrifying dancer and live performer and has truly carved out a name for herself and most recently was recognized on a Pan African platform by MTV and nominated within the Best Newcomer of The Year category at the 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) alongside MI (Nigeria), STL (Kenya), Bigiano (Nigeria) and Rhythmic Elements (South Africa) which goes to prove that it is really SHAAs turn.
