He joined the school choir and participated in various singing competitions. He also learned to play the guitar and keyboard from his father, who was a music enthusiast.

He was inspired by local and international artists, such as Dully Sykes, Mr. Nice, R. Kelly, and Michael Jackson. He started writing songs when he was 15 and recorded his first demo at a local studio.

Personal Life

Aslay has had a turbulent love life marked by several breakups and controversies. He was previously in a relationship with Nandy, another Tanzanian singer who he met in 2016.

They had a daughter together named Moza, who was born in 2017. However, their relationship ended in 2018 amid rumours of infidelity and domestic violence.

Aslay accused Nandy of cheating on him with other men, while Nandy claimed that Aslay was abusive and irresponsible.
