Zani aka Lady Chocolate; Talented Ugandan Musician Based In California

With Uganda’s music industry becoming more profitable and respectable, many Ugandans have joined the industry to either prove their critics wrong who utilize their talent. With a variety of names present, it at times becomes a hard task to choose which musician is better than the other. Ugandans at home and abroad are releasing songs a very now and then. It’s now up to the fans to decide on what to listen to and what to leave out.

In today’s Ugandan musician based in the Diaspora segment, we link up with a multi talented Ugandan singer Zani aka Lady Chocolate. Zani original names Susan Basemera is a musician, model and film actress based in Hollywood California. She was born and raised from Uganda but later moved to United States of America in search for a better life.

At the age of eight, Zani started performing in her school choir, youth centers and church choir. Her love for music at such an early age was inspired by her elder brother Shanks Gumaras; legendary Dancehall and Hip-hop singer. In 1995, Zani was invited by the late Amigo Wawawa and Amos Agaba of Schweppes Uganda to join the famous Waka Waka band. At Waka Waka, Zani recorded her first singles Sam Twonjiwanga and Yimirira awo. This was her big break through musically.

In 1997, she released more big songs such as Nakoowa and Basemera which went on to become overnight hits. This earned Zani the chance to perform at Sheraton Hotel as a lead singer on several theme nights. During one of her performances at Sheraton Hotel a visiting producer and talent agent Thomas Posa watched her perform and he was amused by this new talent. Thomas Posa included Zani on his team and traveled with her to the United States of America were she would mature as a great performer. Thomas’s venture has been widely successful as Zani has grown into a respected singer, model and film actress.

For all her time in the States, Zani has worked with several producers and artistes including Janet Jackson, Jimmy Jean Louis, Nelly, King Nat Jr, Ogopa DJs, Longombas, and Jerry Jackson. Zani has also appeared in several movies such as India sleeper and Hit back yard. She has featured in a number of videos, T.V shows, and TV commercials plus playing cover girl in magazines such as Immigrant, Trends and African Vibes.
