"Sing well"

Translation:Imbeni vizuri

How is the concord determined here? Why is vi- used instead of one of the others?


the prefix 'vi-' (and variations of it) is used for adverbs of manner (vielezi vya namna) that "need" a prefix (prefixed adjectives that can also be used as adverbs of manner adopt this prefix in the latter form) e.g. vibaya (badly), vyema (well). I hope that made sense
