Mzee Makassy formed the band Orchestra Makassy in Uganda and in 1975 the group left for Tanzania and took up residency at the New Africa Hotel in Dar-es-Salaam. Mose Se Fan Fan, a solo artist at the New Africa, joined the band and together they recorded a number of tracks for Radio Tanzania some of which turned up on a Retroafric compilation. They also recorded an album for Virgin records in Kenya but soon after the LP was released the band fell apart, with Mose Se Fan Fan and Remmy Ongala forming their own splinter groups.
