Today, bongo flava is the most popular music style amongst Tanzania youths. The genre is related to American hip hop and R&B style.The genre developed in 1990s, as a fusion of American hip-hop, with additional influences from reggae, R&B, afrobeat, dancehall and traditional Tanzanian styles such as taarab and local dance.

The Bongo Flava style is usually sang in Kiswahili or English, though few artists have been able to sing it in vernacular languages. The music has made its way outside of its historical home of Tanzania; it is spreading across East Africa and Democratic Republic of Congo.
