Bongo Beat biography

Bongo Beat started as ragga rapper Italo Bruce (aka Bruce Hammond Earlam) and vocalist Samira Besic. In 1992 they released a single Keep On Running with no success. After the first single the band tried Do What you Want. The single was composed and written by Mark Tabak, Mike Michaels (also producers) and Douglas Wilmore, released under BMG, but still got no success.

The record label felt the name "Bongo" ruined the band's rep. Band was renamed to Ge ConXion with Bruce and Samira still as stage singers. The band had few success with Wanna Hear The Music released in late 1993. Samira had contract issues to deal with, while secretly recording with Gary B from the band Maxx. Her boyfriend at the time O-jay from Real McCoy asked her to do vocals for his project. Alice Montana was hired by Blow Up records to pretend to sing as Samira Besic in the music video. Although Samira was never credited for Get-a-Way, this was her first and biggest breakthrough. Afterwards, Bruce quit music, while Samira started her solo career.
