Country Zanzibar Genres band bongo flava hiphop pop reggae Festival Sauti za Busara 2007, 2008
Akhenaton Family was started in 2005 by a group of artists with a common interest under Akhenaton Record label. The group was formed for the purpose of uniting Zanzibar and to increase the integrity of composition amongst local artists. During that time petty differences were common among local artists. The introduction of the family spearheaded by Murphy David "DotCom" has been progressing well and they are now ready to take Zenji flava (Zanzibar hiphop) to another level and spread it throughout East Africa.
Artists featured in the crew include Offside Trick (Muda Cris, Lil Ghetto, Tani B), Juma 20, DotCom, Sweet Ray, A.T and Bi-Aida. All these artists have a long profile in music from Uganda, Congo, USA, Tanzania and elsewhere.
As the struggle continues, Akhenaton seeks to encourage more support from all corners to raise the talents of Zanzibar because "music is the weapon".With thanks to Chumbe Island Coral Park
