Juma Nature Biography
Juma Nature a.k.a Sir Nature (born Juma Kassim Ally) is a founder member of a Temeke group called Wanaume TMK, an informal group of rappers from the poor side of Dar es Salaam. Nature is one of the best, well known and most creative artists in the Bongo Flava Swahili hip hop genre, not only is he a great composer and uniquely talented rap artist but also gifted with a soulful and touching voice.
The other main reason for his popularity throughout East Africa is of course the topics of his songs, which deal with real and pertinent issues to the majority of local people. 'Umoja wa Watanzania' from his 2004 album Ugali, for example, pleads for peaceful resolution to political misunderstandings between two rival parties, the ruling CCM and CUF, reminding people of what could be the outcome of a political crisis.
