Akhenaton family, a group of youthful musicians in Zanzibar was founded in 2005 uniting young Zanzibari musicians (Kizazi Kipya). The birth of the family was spearheaded by David Murphy (DotCom) so as to create opportunities for the artists and increase team work and the integrity on the lyrics.

After a long struggle in music industry,
their song Amka Africa was first nominated in 2007 in Kenya Awards in the category ‘Best Video Tanzania’ but they were not successful.

In 2008 according to the airwaves and fans, Akhenaton Family is the only group in Zanzibar that has managed to create a relatively different sound, team work and performance after the release of their 2008 collection (Jibu, On the Air). They also work together with several talents within the isles and this has inspired a lot of youths to develop their talents through the Akhenaton family spells.
