The game of hip pop commonly referred to as Luga flow in Uganda, Luga representing Luganda, is a genre that was made so popular by GNL Zamba in early 2008. Since then a birth of new breeds has been evident with the likes of Gravity and Fefe Busi who are currently shaking levels of the rap game.
Today we break down the strong and weak points that make each one distinct varying from education, wealth, fan base, rides, etc.
Koi koi star GNL Zamba must be laughing at the so called new generation and feeling abused at some point. Mukiiza Frank aka Fefe Busi popular for Nsekula hit is not sure about his education hierarchy and each time the rapper appears on television for an interview he never keeps the facts. The rapper attended Old Kampala SSS where he used to feast on Lydia Jasmines kitone though he could not make it to University. Fefe Busi can try to throw a few lines in English while talking but confidently holds an argument in Luganda.
The Omwoto star is popular for having trouble uttering a single word in the Queens language and if you want to annoy him change the language. He however went to Old Kampala SSS but University tuition was not available hence dropping out to secure a music career.
Gravity’s video of 2009 left us to think he has an optical problem due to his skin color is closely worrying. Kiwi shoe polish should approach him to be a brand ambassador.Just like his name the rapper looks like a real Omutujju but money and fame changes a lot. Most a time a loud during performances or any of his appearances.
On the other hand Fefe Busi looks like a cute girl. Despite his pencil size, the rapper is hugely an attraction for women and wouldn’t be offended to find any woman cheating on their men with him.
Gravity might have the whole package of fame but Fefe Busi is an accelerating rapper that hugely has a dope touch on punch lines in his lyrics. He is more composed and carries a lot of poetry with in the lines in his lyrics. He is more and carries a lot of poetry with in the lines, come to free style he would surely beat Gravity hands down. Gravity has cram work and only feeds on fast beats and in all his big hits; he has at least been helped by a vocalist on the chorus.
Fefe Busi sings to *A pass tulikubigele tulinze sente zaffe ziwere* he is seen on boda bodas from one location to another to juggle shows as he hoods the head. Gravity has on the other hand driven a series of hot rides and currently cruises a Toyota Prado TX.
Gravity is known as the secondary GNL Zamba for Luga flow and it’s no doubt he has bagged most rap accolades as Fefe Busi keeps looking in admiration. The money star has cemented his name with remarkable hits resulting into uncountable recognition. Fefe Busi is trying, yes still trying and surely if he keeps with the place we might have him bring the Grammy award home some day in future.
SENSE OF FASHION
Gravity remains un beatable and comes as a surprise how someone from Katanga can surely mint attires together to form a good look. He is the type that can wear a Zara original pair of classic shoe and a regular client at Abryans collection store.The skinny Fefe Busi on the other hand goes down town Owiino hooded to chase for cheap sales.
DESIRE LUZINDA TO QUIT MUSIC AND BECOME PASTOR
A lot has been going on in our Wakanda lately that we even forgot to pay attention to Desire Luzinda turning 25 in the 10th year again! This yearly monotonous 25th birthday happened again Yesterday but unique about it was her post where she unleashed plans to exit the music industry.
For thiS particular birthday, Desire Luzinda has confirmed that she is undergoing a ‘TRANSITION’ which is also an album and her last as a musician!
” I will release my #LAST ALBUM titled “TRANSITION” on the 23rd of this month. This one is special and yes, it is my last…! An album that I have had so much passion about and have had a chance to co-produce bearing in mind what/whom I am transitioning into.
I am grateful to the Lord of possibilities that I serve. Times ahead may come tough but I’ll be counting on Heaven above. So to the achievements in years gone, cheers…to the challenges ahead, no fears!” Read her Facebook post yesterday
According to close friends, Desire has been paying 99% attention to her spiritual growth and church and if she talks of transition, then its something driving towards church ministry. She has been a regular attendant at Phaneroo and seems like thats where the lord met her with the calling to serve.
ALL EYES ON YOU BOOBOO!
101 WITH BOND EMPIRE ARTISTE MANAGERS AND MUSIC PROMOTERS
Yesterday Manager Jamala Kalyesubura and Manager Moses Katende passed by KASUKU MEDIA LTD offices and an amazing and inspiring chat we had with them about the Art of artiste management, why it is important and why it has failed. Bond empire is responsible for Barbie Jay and Ziza Bafana’s excellence in the Industry. Currently, Bond Empire is handling Young Mulo and resurrecting his career.
When and where did your career in artiste management dwell from?
Our career started 3 years ago because we had a keen interest in Music and Manager Jamal was a radio presenter at Suubi Fm which made it easy for us to blend in easily since it was almost working with people in the same industry
Which artistes did you begin your careers with?
We began with Barbie Jay and later handled Ziza Bafana and back then we were working as mere individuals because we had not yet legally registered bond empire.
Please shade more light into what functions an artiste’s manager plays
A manager is responsible for the well being of the artiste, where they sleep, what they eat, what they put on, which song they have to record and where they to record it from, where they have to perform and when?. Managers also have to promote the artiste’s music and manage their media appearances.
As experts, what are some of the things that you feel have gone wrong towards Ugandan artistes as a result of poor management?
Ugandan artistes are so undisciplined and they devalue managers depending on their monetary abilities. Because as artistes, they feel they have all it takes to sing and manage themselves at the same time.Artistes have also failed to bow down to competition because its managers that study audience and markets.
So what should the artistes do about it then?
An artiste should be having an office or studio where they meet with their manager almost very morning to share programs and decide on the future.
As Bond empire, what new thing are you bringing onto the artiste management scene?
To start with, we are researches in the music audience targets thus we have been able to make our artistes release latest music genres and reach their targets with back to back hits which has helped them to stay relevant.
Just wondering, why do artistes fall out with their managers every day?
GREED is the biggest cause because as managers, we invest in the artiste but when they start earning, the artistes feel we don’t deserve the agreed percentage of the share which causes an uproar.
COMMUNICATION is the other issue because the gap left between artistes and managers brings about parallel decisions that make us clash.
Whats your take on artistes and managers owning assets together?
There is definitely no problem with that as long as they have an understanding that wont result into a disagreement after splitting up.
Whats your current take on the state of Music in Uganda?
Apparently, Ugandan music has gone International because the places the play South African or Nigerian music can also play Ugandan Music. Musicians have also changed from sticking to one music genre to being all round and thus one musician can sing Zouk, Afrobeat, ragga, raggae, ragga, hip-hop putting music on the world market.
MC KAPALE ACCUSES SALVADOR & MARIACHI FOR STEALING HIS SHINE
It takes a long time for us (media) to take a comedian’s words serious but its high time we listened to words of MC Kapale and analyzed them. For months, he has been beefing on fellow comedians MC Mariachi and Salvador Idringi using almost similar statements. Since he has repetitively made them over time, they might be holding some little water.
MC KAPALE Vs MARIACHI
MC Kapale alleges that he introduced Mariachi to the comedy industry when he scooped him a gig at Monalisa club in Mengo. He is however hurt that instead of Mariachi concentrating on his career, he used his kii long mouth to stab him in the back and the Club Owner fired Kapale instead and rubbished his profile among possible future clients
MC KAPALE Vs SALVADOR
Surprisingly, MC Kapale labelled Salvador as ‘Jokes Thief’. Kapale affirms that he has evidence that the balloon like Salvador would come to Theater La Bonita in a hood, sit inn the corner every evening to listen and cram his jokes which he would later translate into English to attract the International audience.
Kapale says these two have contributed to the slight downfall of the Comedy industry with the former rubbishing the names of fellow comedians and the latter not crediting the jokes he steals from local languages and translates into English.
Banange Kapale Muniyiivu, tewabawo amusemberera hahahuh!
