This is Clarissa at her best! Strong vocals, a rich vocal range and impeccable delivery! There’s something superbly addictive about Nawe, right from the vocal package, to the melody, the hook, the lyrics and the track! From the very start, the song exudes the vintage feel of love songs and takes the listener on a pleasant journey of sweet music.

The track is rich and varied! The inter-play between the wind, keys and percussion gives rise to an awesome fusion that boarders between soft reggae and lovers’ rock, yet with a touch that is identifiably Ugandan. The track evades monotony, blends well with the lyrics and gives the song the kind of repeat value that makes one want to listen over and over again!

Whether you love Reggae or you just fall for silky vocals, this is the right song for you.

It is the kind that you can listen to, sing along and dance along; and still not get enough of Nawe. That’s how awesome this song is.

Analysts and critics alike have named Nawe song different, simple and special among others salutations.

It is by far the fastest growing song in Uganda today. Written by multi awards winning song writer, singer and producer, ‘Sylver Kyagulanyi’, the Paddyman composed song is one of the few that will last for generations.

Nawe song is the most played slow single today on Kampala top mass market radio stations and is first attracting attention of the uptown players, a market where I am confident this song will comfortably sit.
