Mbosso is a bongo artist whose real name is Mbwana Yusuph Kilungi. He used to be known as Marombosso back then while still with Yamoto band. He was born on 3rd October in Kibiti, Rufiji to a mother who is a farmer and a father who is a tout in Kibiti. His father is called Yusuph Mbone Kilungi while his mother is known as Khadija Salim Kilale. He was supported by his parents who educated him until he finished the high school level. He later left home for Dar es Salaam where he began his music career.
Mbosso had passion for music but lacked the necessary support until when he moved to Dar es Salaam. When in Dar, he was taken in by Mkubwa Fella who put together the famous yamoto band which originally used to be called Mkubwa na Wanawe. At yamoto band he was with Aslay, Beka Flavour and Enock Bella. Yamoto band is known for hit songs like Nitakupwelepweta, Cheza kwa madoido, Nisambazie raha, Su ft. Ruby, Niseme, Dar ya Makonda, Mama, Basi, Wambea ft. Christian Bella and Mpaka Nizikwe.
When yamoto band was disbanded, he went back home and continued being a farmer until when the WCB Wasafi record artist Rayvanny followed up on him and brought him back to Dar es Salaam.
Mbosso was born in a family that had financial difficulties. His parents struggled to raise and educate him until when he went to Dar es Salaam to hustle. His life took a good turn when he joined Yamoto band but that dream was cut short when the band was dissolved. He went back home and started being a farmer. His fellow Yamoto artists like Aslay and Beka Flavour were doing so well as solo artists which stressed him the more. He started involving himself in petty theft and crime.
Many different artistes persuaded him to leave farming and get back into music but they did not manage to convince him but thanks to Wasafi’s Rayvanny he was swayed to come back to the city to attend Diamond Platnumz’s brother Romy Jones’ wedding.
Relationships and family
He is yet to come clean on the lady he is dating and little is known about his love life. However, in one of his interviews with a local Tanzanian media house, he admitted that he has two children. His song Watakubali is a true life story of the lady from a rich family who truly loved him but their difference in life status was hindering the relationship. He declined to make the lady known.
