Witnesz is the most distinctive personality in rap and possessor of it\'s most recognizable delivery, a halting, Busta Rhymes-inspired style with incredible complexity, ingenuity, and humour. Witnesz, has proved to be East Africa’s most outstanding hip hop female Icon, and she doesn’t need to be told that she was born to win because she knows that winning is part of her birth rights. Her musical path started 1997 as a researcher on Hip hop influence in the slams and ghettos of kinondoni Dar es Salaam. That’s when she realized that there were no female mc’s and got her gear on joined the male dominated game of hip hop. At a time, she added a whole flavor to the industry in terms of performing. She was characterized as the back stage laid back person but a real loose wild bull on stage when performing and that’s why A lot of people thought she was under drug influence but later they discovered that she naturally has energetic life on the MIC and on stage than any other place and that’s where the early name of BAD GEAR was born. That’s why, in the rap verses of ZERO she clearly states that, AM STILL WITNESSING THE BAD GEAR OF HIP HOP... which explains her name transitions from Bad Gear to just Witnesz.

After that performance, she turned heads and later got to record an album with Norway\'s Best Hip hop group and the grammy award winners 2006 DARK-SIDE OF THE FORCE. The inspiration of the hit single ZERO came up as people in Tanzania were using Witnesz as a land mark for female hip hop music in East and Central Africa and That’s why she clearly states that in the chorus when she says (Witnesz) Wanaotaka shindana Nami sema (ya all who want to compete with me just say it ) Watapata zero (You will get nothing but zero) (Fid Q; Tena Na tena,Tena Na tena (again and again) AWARDS & NOMINATIONS Channel O music video Awards 2008-Nominated in 3 categories of a song Zero Best Duo/Group Best Hip hop Video Best African East-Went home with Trophy of best African east award.
