Venessa attended the Arusha Modern High School for secondary education before flying to Nairobi for a university degree.

In Nairobi, Venessa attended the Catholic University of Eastern Africa, where she pursued a degree in Law.

It is at the university, that the Never Ever hitmaker fell in love with music which later became part and parcel of her life.

Diamond Platnumz

Wasafi boss is not only one of the top talents Tanzania has ever produced but also one of the fasted upcoming business moguls in the country.

Though he is talented and successful in his endeavors, Chibu does hold any high school or college certificate. The musician reportedly only has primary education.

Diamond, however, holds an honorary degree from the University of Dar es Salaam. He was awarded the degree for exporting Tanzanian art and culture according to reports.

Ali Kiba

Ali Kiba is one of the multi-talented Tanzanian superstars, he is good at both soccer and music. Though he loved soccer, he chose to pursue a career in music.

Though reports show that the singer attended high school, there is no indication that he went to college thereafter. Reports say, he began his music career immediately attaining secondary education.


There is no much history about Mbosso's education level but as many other Tanzanian artists, Mbosso is said to have attained a high school education. He did not, however, proceed to college since he wanted to pursue his dream as a musician.
