Lovers of Afro and soul music have a special treat come June 29, 2019 when artiste Kenneth Mugabi launches his latest studio album.
Mugabi revealed that he is not a kind of artist who does Music for money,though he as well loves money like any other person on earth.
“I am not looking for money, I love money though just like anyone else, I am seeking to be a person of value and money will come to me. What I am doing right now is adding value to the industry.
The reason I collaborated with the likes of Irene and Lillian Mbabazi among others, is because I believe it doesn’t make any sense playing the same music on Radio, TV, Car and elsewhere.
That’s the reason I decided doing something different in my upcoming album, which is already cooking in studio, according to the singer.”
The 13 truck album titled “Ugandan” will be performed live at Fezah’s home; the Design Hub in Bugolobi.
With his gifted rich voice, stage presence and signature ‘endigidi’ (tube fiddle), Mugabi tells unique stories through his music, providing authentic sounds to his performances which rob hearts.
His Music is a refreshing addition to local tunes with ‘Naki’ being one of his fans’ all favorite.
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Mugabi said he could not wait to share his masterpiece with the world.
“My new album is perfect especially for the new audience that I want to tap in.
It contains 13 songs with collaboration from some of Uganda’s finest artists like Lillian Mbabazi, Irene Namubiru and among others. I can’t wait to share it come June 29,” said Mugabi.
The soulful performer and story teller will also be performing some of his popular songs like Nambi, Carolina, Nubuka, Naki among others off his other hit album, ‘Kibunomu’ that lets one into an enchanting world of storytelling through music.
“Am adding something to the industry and not taking anything. It’s just a drop in the ocean
My album is more of feelings, is the journey of the youth, that’s why I called it Ugandan.”
Mugabi said he wrote the album according to the way Ugandan youth feel.
“Mugabi is an outstanding force in the music industry and right now his fresh take on music is something that needs celebration.
“Our brand being an icon of progress, decided to celebrate the incredible steps forward that artistes like Kenneth are making which we are glad to be a part of,” said Roger Agamba International Premium Spirits Brand Manager, Uganda Breweries Limited.
