Am one person who doesn’t really get down well with all these Ugandans who try to do R n B MUSIC, Just because a few of them get to do justice to it.
Now that the aids day is just a few days back i took time to check out musicians in Uganda who have really done music that spreads message of sensitization about the virus. And as I watched different videos, I got one I usually call the crowner of all of them, just next to PHILLY BONGOLE LUTAYA(RIP)’S songs, guys you will forgive me for still honoring and always putting him above everyone in the aspect of Ugandan music. Enough of my adoration of the legend. The song I watched was called a lil bit of love produced by fennon records owned by STEVE JEAN a Ugandan music Producers and sung by all-star musicians in Uganda back in 2006. This song had a number of talented Ugandan artists that include Kid fox,Meseach Ssemakula,Blu 3, Nandujja, Peter miles, Ham Kay, Juliana and many more.
