Grace also plans to unleash her much anticipated Ntandika video that featured more than 30 dancers from Sosolya Undugu Dance Academy soon.
“Their performance was great and massive, she came along with very nice dancers from Uganda, something that visiting artists rarely do, we were so happy to host her and plan to invite Nakimera for many other events in the near future,” Said one of the managers at The Posh.

Most of her songs come with a dynamic, classical, urban feeling, this has kept Grace very popular in the cooperate and urban youths’ markets.
