Kibiriti Ngoma is a Swahili slang expression, which is a despising description for a woman with the meaning of “prostitute”. In Tanzania this term became that common in everyday life that it was chosen to be the title of a Taarab song as well as the name of a comic magazine. This article compares the use of the term Kibiriti Ngoma in these two genres of popular art in Tanzania thus highlightening the popular discourse on gender relations and sexuality in East Africa. Comic magazines and Taarab music as forms of popular culture serve in this article as an analytcal lens to understand social processes.
