What are you up to since leaving the Obsessions entertainment group?
I am currently in Kenya to work on my album. I am writing songs for my first solo music album with the guidance of Kenyan producer Beat Mekah of Cypher Music, who is also my manager. When I decided to pursue music professionally, I shopped around and settled on Cypher because it suited my style.
How would you describe your sound?
It is electro pop with an African touch. My first single, P arty on my Mind is already out. It is a happy-go-lucky song about letting loose and enjoying yourself.
What is the general response so far?
The reaction has been very good. It was my friends and family who urged me to continue pursuing music after I left Obsessions and they are happy about my work.
Tell us about your childhood…
I grew up in Kampala and I am an only child. My father died before I was born and was raise with my mom. Sadly, though, she died when I was 13 and I was taken in by her brother and his wife.
How did your life change?
My mum worked for the government in the president’s office and given that I was her only child, I was a bit spoilt (laughs). I had my own room and TV. My environment suddenly changed and it was hard to adjust. My uncle, his wife and his three sons were very welcoming and it helped.
How did losing your mum change you?
