Mandojo started his music career as a very young boy in Manyoni district, Singida region with the Mighty Melodies band. His real name is Joseph Michael. During his primary school days he only had one pair of shoes called DOJO which he had to wear everyday and so other kids nicknamed him DOJOMAN, the name which later changed to MANDOJO.
DOMOKAYA learned his music skills from his brother who was in the same group with TID, another big name in the Bongo flava map. His real name is Precious Juma Nkoma but because he was very talkative in school he was nicknamed DOMOKAYA.
MANDOJO and DOMOKAYA met in Arusha in a Wamandavaku family camp, which is an independent artist's family. MANDOJO's melodies and DOMOKAYA's Ghetto raps made them decide to unite to form MANDOJO & DOMOKAYA.
When Juma Nature was launching his Ugali album in Arusha, MANDOJO & DOMOKAYA performed as warm up artists.

After their successful first single they signed a contract with JAG RECORDS owned by Gardner G. Habash and recorded their first album named Taswira.
