From humble beginnings in Kigali and Kampala’s suburbs to the full glare of the stage, Lilian has mesmerised many an audience with her rich and powerful vocals. Citing the likes of Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston as her influence it’s no wonder that Lilian is emerging as one of the best female artists to ever come out of Uganda, and East Africa for that matter. LilianMbabazi is embarking on a new phase of her singing career as a solo artist having taken time off from the group Blu 3. To some this would be a daunting prospect but for Lilian this is something she has dreamed about since she was a little girl. “I always knew I would be a singer. I could never stop singing no matter what I was doing. In fact I think I almost drove my siblings crazy humming and singing all day long,” says Lilian. Her musical style is described as a cross between R & B/Soul tinged with African & Western musical influences. The various types of musical styles come across in the singles she has released so far, namely: Vitamin - a classic Ugandan style pop song featuring Weasel from the Goodlyfe Kawa - a bumping Ugandan dance/house track produced by Market Makers Kankutwale - a love song sung in Luganda YegweWeka - a return to her native roots of Rwanda featuring Kitoko So in love - a sultry classic R&B track with hints of jazz “The beauty about Lilian’s voice is that she can sing almost anything, whether it’s a ballad, a jazz standard, a pop song or a dance track. To have such vocal versatility is true talent,” says Onoh, Producer, Market Makers. This is truly reflected in Lilian’s passion for live performances which she relishes. Currently perfecting her live act with her band the Sundowners her love of music shines through in the choice of songs for her repertoire: Tina Turner, Erykah Badu, India Arie, Etta James, Adele, Bruno Mars and Bob Marley to name a few, whilst also performing her own songs and songs from the group Blu 3.

From the heart of Africa comes the novel sound of a rich panache of music. Tamba brings an atypical feel to a cultural genre suffused with a sundry of folklore sounds from across her homeland, Uganda. Born Sara Mutamba in Kano, Nigeria, Tamba was raised in Uganda where, at a tender age and with her mother’s encouragement and grandmother’s folk influence, she nurtured her affection for singing. She sung occasionally in church with two of her younger brothers and in the year 2000, along with them, formed the acclaimed gospel a capella group ‘SALT’. In it’s four-year lifespan, the soulful group performed in churches, at weddings and corporate events. A Bachelor of Arts graduate from Makerere University and majoring in English literature, Tamba took a break from music and moved to World Vision in Geneva Switzerland, where she took up an internship. She later joined the Global Fund, also in Geneva. She then returned to Uganda and worked for a couple of corporate companies while following her musical dream, a pursuit that seemed frustrating at the time. She again halted her music in 2005 and only resumed singing in 2007, performing at weddings and corporate functions. In 2008 she joined afro-jazz-pop band Qwela as a vocalist and songwriter until 2010 when she begun to cultivate her own forte. In 2011 Tamba launched her solo career and is currently working on her debut album. Fondly described by her fans as ‘the small girl with the big voice’, Tamba is a rare gem. Her passion for African sounds has persuaded her music and songwriting into a wealthy blend of authentic African artistry.
His real names, he goes by the names Kyagambidwa Geoffrey. He describes himself as an all rounder when it comes to music to me I think he might come near to the real definition of a musician. He continues to say he is a simple God fearing and friendly to all classes of people. Chagga studied at Mengo Primary School , Light College Katikamu and Kawempe High. Chagga started singing in Namirembe Cathedral Church Choir (what happened all these guys seem to have started with God), during this time he joined Secondary school where he decided to form an r`n`b group called Extra Grim members included Michael Chris now in UK doing Gospel, Martin Ruteta, quit music went to Campus, Isaac who is based in Germany doing secular music too and lastly Benon the other half of the famous duo Benon & Vamposs. After all this he changed his style and started his journey in the hip-hop scene. He started The Bataka now the Bataka Underground. Now Chagga says before it become Bataka Underground, when it was still called Bataka, they basically rapped in Luganda. At this time the Underground was a separate team. These basically rapped in English. Bataka consisted of Chagga and Larat now in UK and Underground consisted of Momo, Krayzie Native. These two merged to form the Bataka Underground. They were later joined people like Babaluk, Lyrical G and Brian and many more. So at that time hip-hop was not selling or was not yet noticed so he started looking for another style. Chagga started Afro Beat style. He started by backing up Chameleone. Later he and Chameleone formed the Leone Island Crew which consists of guy like Weasel, Mowzey, Mr X, Lizard and many more. During that time, he was releasing singles on Chameleone`s albums like “Yoono” on his “Dorotia album”. All this time he was trying to discover himself.

Jolly while seething with rage. Enygma is a complex walking contradiction. Often delightful and modest but conceited and obnoxious enough to talk of himself in the third person. ENYGMA is an enigma. This dude performs with a facemask, which has kept his identity away from the public. That is how he chooses it to be. His fascination with thug poetry and rap began in primary school. And he is fast becoming one of Kampala's beloved rappers. At this point in his music career, Enygma does not have to struggle to prove anything. He is already getting there, with an endless array of classic beats that rekindle memories of MC Hammer, Tupac Shakur and the like, blurring the lines between rap's underground affinities and modern hip-hop. His album, Enygma of the State, sounds like a conflicting tug-of-war between the Ugandan MCs he features, with him lyrically dominating the whole album as the rest clean up the remains. Although the 16-track album features renowned rappers like Navio, The Mith, Young Nick and Keko, he topples them with his unique lyrics. Hustler's Night, the fifth song on the album, is a better demonstration of Enygma as a younger sibling surpassing the renowned MCs, his older siblings. This gives the album a triumphant and celebratory touch. Corporate Flow featuring Jay Kay and Young Nick is consistent with old school hip-hop beats, commending and praising a corporate in a tie going to the studio after work because he has passion for music. Could he be talking about himself? Well, he is an enigma this one. The other tracks tackle some really serious topics. See the World is an impressive glimpse into urban homicide, other deaths and disasters. Smile of a Child fails to sound out because of a contrived chorus, thanks to Naava, who does it. However, Demise, still featuring Jay Kay, makes a difference with the modern day moving beats of the west coast as it questions MCs for unnecessarily flaunting their fabricated possessions to the innocent listener. Ultimately, Enygma of the State is a very noble attempt at unity, but its variation stalls the project, resulting it into a recording that buckles under the weight of its own pressure. But he won't lose because he has got catchy punchlines any hip-hop fan as keen as I am, will tug onto in appreciating the real MC Enygma is.
From an early age, The Mith, showed he had a lot of love for the performance arts, especially music. But it wasn’t until he met the rest of his Klear Kut members that he decided to take his love for music seriously.

And ..Klear Discussions..which they recorded with Percussion Discussion. The album also managed to get them nominated for KORA Awards (Best African Act). The Mith's first solo project in form of a mixtape; September Reign Volume 1, was released in January 2010 going on to receive critical acclaim all over Uganda.
