The song pulsates with an irresistible Afrobeat rhythm, layered with vibrant Swahili lyrics that speak to the soul.

Darassa and Ben Pol trade verses, seamlessly blending their unique styles, as they rap about overcoming struggles, silencing negativity, and celebrating the hustle.
The chorus explodes with the defiant refrain, “I don’t care where you came from, I don’t care what you talk about.” This powerful message of acceptance and unity transcends borders and backgrounds, reminding us that true joy lies in celebrating each other’s journeys.
But “I Don’t Care” isn’t just about letting loose. It also carries a message of resilience and hard work. Lines like “Nime hustle nimepambana sio kwa ubwete” (“I’ve hustled and fought, not out of laziness”) and “Get rich or die, try, Usikate tamaa ilo ni kosa jinai” (“Don’t lose hope, that’s a crime”) highlight the importance of chasing our goals with unwavering determination.
The vibrant music video perfectly captures the song’s energy. Dazzling scenes of Darassa and Ben Pol performing surrounded by dancers, intercut with shots of everyday life in Tanzania, create a tapestry of cultural richness and raw joy.
