Mzee teams up with his sister Khadija Yusuf, another very popular taarab singer in Tanzania. Both artists built their reputations and international fame with Zanzibar Stars Modern Taarab. Modern taarab is a style which gained popularity in the late 90s by some taarab musicians who were trying to find a way of building a new generation of fans.

Unlike in traditional taarab, this modern version, where most of the music comes from keyboards rather than "real instruments", allows fans to "get up and dance". Most of the songs are about how one boasts of enjoying his or her love life. Modern taarab groups are often in the headlines, and have attracted criticism for promoting hatred and jealousy, especially among women. (source www.busaramusic.org) Read more on Last.fm.
