     As we are about to celebrate international Women’s day on 8th March ,let’s start this beautiful month of March by looking at the new flower in the bongo flavor garden, Doreen Paul is a stranger in our faces ,but she is that kind of stranger that your Mom would like you to know and meet, Doreen who rocks her stage name as Rin Marii is an upcoming  Tanzanian singer who has released  songs like “Wewe” and her previous hit song “salaam”, which made Tanzanians wonder  the story behind this fresh new talent.

 In a sit down with Rin Marii and Her Manager (Prinzofquinz),we talked a lot upon her music and life in general. Rin Marii’s love for music began way back in primary school, as she was given the singing parts of multiple school plays and dramas  ,even though she truly wanted to be an actor, but ,it was in High school when Rin’s musical talent developed and decided to do music professionally and by 2010 her musical 
journey began. in defines music as a “Universal language”  because it’s such a strong tool in uniting people, despite their linguistic background. growing up Rin loved Indian movies which most of them are musical, she loved the music in them despite not understanding of what was been said .Michael Jackson,Ray C,Jay Dee,Bruno Mars,Jesse J,Sam smith,Ay and MwanaFA are among the few artist that inspire Rin in her music.

 Rin Marii’s passion for music gives her a free visa to cross multiple genres of music, as she doesn’t limit herself genre wise, she does R&B ,BongoFlavor,AfroPop and a bit of Dancehall.Rin Marii is stepping in the game really bold, her confidence, vision  and determination   shows a bright future in her career ,currently Rin is being managed by Prinzofquinz from DEFINITIONS ,and 2018 is that year which will be bigger and better for Rin Marii and her management, as they expect to give us major projects , like new tracks, new music videos ,local and international collabos and so much more. Let’s just hope for the best ,like the Swahili saying goes “Yetu macho”.

MP: Tanzania and Music, What are your comments on these two?
Rin: “I think we are very lucky, because Tanzania enjoys different genres of music, we have options when we want to listen to music ,we have Taarab, Bongoflavour, Hiphop, dancehall and basically Tanzania has it all. And in terms of the music industry, I think we are at this verge ,were its almost untapped just yet to its maximum potential ,so it’s great time to improve it because there is so much talents and it getting serious each day”

Rin apart from being a musicians, her résumé reads International Relation ,she recently quit her job at the beginning of this year, as she was facing a great challenge in balancing work life and music, but after this bold decision, in is all in the music business, and we can’t wait to see what this gorgeous full time musician has in stored for us. Rin’s message to new artist is that “work on your craft and believe in your dreams, dreams to come to reality it has to go with hard work ,the truth is there are going to be challenges here and there ,you just have to be persistent

MP. How would you define a best artist?

Rin : “I think its somebody who redefines music and brings in creativity and originality and somebody who brings something new to what was already existing in the music industry”

Recently Rin has performed at the Romantic event “Mapenzi mubashara,Aslay,Nandy and Friends” which was held at escape one, this to her is one of the biggest stage that she conquered so far, and we hope to see her in bigger stages and taking us along the way.
