Ntesa Dalienst is pictured below
Ya Ntesa, TP OK Jazz was teeming with talent but you were my best. I was in denial for very long over your demise.
Fare thee well son of Africa till we meet again before the creator
In my opinion, the best vocalist of all tyme. My favourite being Liyanzi ekoti ngai motema. Timeless piece.
I know Ntesa as one of the strongest musician with his attractive or golden voice
especial while staying in ok jazz family with other vocals such an Josk kiambukuta . Pepe Ndombe and kiawakana
Was very calm gentleman, we will always miss you Ntesa.
I listen to these guys sing and i cannot believe how perfect their songs were
So sad how a number of music greats are just passing before our eyes so prematurely, especially the TPOK family.
This guy had all the stamina and delivered most powerful yet harmonious timeless pieces. I am in particular wowed by lisolo ya adamo na nzambe, mukungu, namiswi misapi etc.
His songs are my treasures
Memories are made of these!
At the Nairobi City stadium in1983 he gave me a small booklet with the History of TP OK jazz which I treasure to date. I love listening to his hit Dodo any time. Fare thee well.
Ntesa has a voice which make his music lovable and evergreen- my favourite, Bina na ngai na respect. Miss you
The ease with which he sang, almost effortless,yet you can see his neck blow and flatten like singing bull flog, then you realise this guy is in business.
Check him on his video tangawizi and coupe de foundre, you will be happy.
True you are a real fan; Bina na ngai na respect, mouzi ,dodo and Tangawuzi, the backup voice in DIA and Sandoka was marvelous. These days there is no music. Ok JAZZ music will live for ever.
When i hear Ntessa’s voice i can easily sob in tears.
the voice of ntesa on liyanzi ekoti ngai na motema wacha tu
rest in piece son of africa
Ya Ntesa was a highly gifted musician of all times.
