They say dynamite comes in small packages, Vanessa Mdee is living proof. This Tanzanian media personality turned songstress is no stranger to the airwaves. A successful MTV base Africa VJ and choice FM Tanzania DJ – Vee Money as her friends and fans call her packs a mean punch.
Born Vanessa Hau Mdee on 7th June 1988, this vibrant young East African girl knew that she was meant to be a part of the music industry honing her skills from a young age. Born to a journalist turned diplomat father Vanessa got to be a part of various art scenes in Paris, Nairobi and her hometown of Arusha.
Vanessa studied law at the Catholic Univeristy of Eastern Africa, which she has always admitted to not enjoying. After the sudden passing of her father she decided to follow her dreams participating in MTV’s VJ search in Tanzania, making her TZ’s first MTV VJ – and the rest they say is HISTORY. ~ vanessamdee.com
