Sheebah Karungi, one of the leading Ugandan recording artists, was nominated for two awards in two categories in the MTV Africa Music Awards 2021; Best Female Artist and Best Ugandan Act.
The MAMAs 2021 will be hosted in Kampala on 20th February after a 4 year long break. Uganda becomes the second East African country, after Kenya, to host the MAMA awards.
The awards, first held in 2008, are designed to celebrate, recognize, unify and support music and artistes from across the African continent.
Although the show will be held virtually, “it is still a great opportunity for Kampala to be at the centre of the MAMAs this year,” as Sheebah described.
We caught up with the outstanding ‘Queen Karma’ to talk about her album SAMALI, her plans for 2021 and of course, the MAMAs.
