Tanzanian Bongo crooner Juma “Jux” Mkambala has released the video for his new RnB track Simuachi, and the video features pretty Kenyan socialite Huddah Monroe.
Ahead of the video’s release, Jux and Monroe hyped the project on their various social media pages, dropping teasers and pictures from behind the scenes.
“Huyu husband, simuachi!” Monroe captioned a clip on Instagram.
On the video, the two talk and laugh as a photographer snaps away at them. Both are dressed sharply, with Juma in all white and Monroe in a black gown accessorised with a layered pearl necklace.
The socialite then posted a black and white photo of the duo, this time with a lengthy caption apparently capturing the essence of Juma’s new romantic ballad.
“A king deserves a queen. Behind every successful man is a woman who listens and understands him and lets him lead whether she is richer, or more intelligent than him,” Monroe wrote.

“She respects her king and helps evolve to greater heights. Congratulations again Juma Jux,” she added.
The lyrics of the track are a sweet ode to a special lady in a man’s life, and in the video, the two East African personalities cosy up together and play the part of love interests quite convincingly.
“Nina kila sababu ya kuwa na yeye, kwake kichanga nabembelezwa na yeye,” Juma sings on the sweet serenade.
In the Simuachi video, the pair flirt on the set, which is a lavish mansion with a garden.
They dine, take a ride on a convertible and share a kiss.
Monroe shows off her beauty and style in the video, switching up her looks from gowns, to an edgier look with a leather short and boots later on.
A trumpet plays on as the pair share another passionate kiss towards the end of the three-minute and 22-second music video.
“Have you ever seen me kiss anyone? There you go,” Monroe captioned a screenshot of their kiss on Instagram.
Jux and Monroe have been rumoured to be involved romantically in the past, but both have maintained that there is nothing but friendship between them.
Last year, the Nitasubiri singer refuted reports of a relationship with Huddah, saying that he sees her “like a sister.”
“Ni msichana mrembo, ana asilimia kama themanini hivi ya vigezo ninavyovihitaji kwa mwanamke, lakini hiyo haifanyi mimi na yeye tukawa wapenzi, namheshimu kama dada yangu na tumekuwa tukishirikiana sana kwenye kazi, isitoshe Hudah ana mtu wake,” he said.
But hawk-eyed netizens continued to have their eyes on them. The two were spotted vacationing at similar destinations in Zanzibar in March 2020, causing a stir.
