Kavanga is related to Tingatinga. He was born in Nasheche near Nakapanya. He was child of Hassaniís uncle. He started to paint at the Cooperative but he was not very determined artist. Instead he was more entrepreneur  and sold paintings in northern Tanzania. He visited one week UK but under the name Siyaya. It was the artist Siyaya who was invited and he pretended to be Siyaya but they discovered it after one week and sent him back to Tanzania. The reason was that he could speak some English. He passed away around 2000. He had no child nor wife. He was still young when he passed away. He showed paintings at Village Museum, National Museum (like almost all other painters). There is a gallery in Spain which sells his paintings.
