Today we decide to battle the hottest producers in the land, Washington and Nash Wonder. The two have been on a hit rampage for the last twelve months that it’s only natural to debate who is better.
STYLE
Washington has done it all but he is the undisputed champion of afro dancehall. His style is afro centric with heavy drums and a heavy bassline. It’s this style that has propelled to unimaginable heights as Uganda’s top producer. Nash wonder is just starting out but we can say that he is an afro dancehall specialist with a pop incline to his production.

Winner: Both producers sound fresh so this is a STALEMATE

 

CREATIVITY
Washington has been accused of monotony these days. Unlike in the past when he had just burst on the scene, his music now sounds predictable. A song done by Rema will sound almost the same as the one done by Jackie Chandiru with only instruments varying. You doubt me??Listen to Rema’s Fire tonight and Jackie’s Gold Digger. Too similar.
Nash Wonder is versatile in his production. He will follow the theme of the song and craft an appropriate beat. In that way, he will always sound unique. There is a different feel when listening to Goodlyfe’s Magnetic and for example Khalifa Aganaga’s Ndabirawa.

WINNER: Nash Wonder
HITS FACTORY
Washington outsmarts Nash on this one. Washington has been making monster beats for top artistes since the early 2000’s.He made the East African Bashment Crew what they are with hits like Fire Burn Dem, Kube and has worked with the crème de la crème like Radio and Weasel producing songs like Can’t Let You Go, Fantastic and many others. Cindy has been one of his top students as he has produced a big chunk of her songs including Ayokyayokya, One and Only. Top class stuff.
Nash wonder on the other hand, is a young guy coming up and his resume of hits can only improve. You have to cut him some slack because he has been on the scene for just over a year. He is nevertheless behind Radio and Weasel’s 2013 anthem Magnetic, Ekyama, Khalifa’s Ndabirawa and many others. WINNER: Washington

All in all, Washington’s career spans over a decade so he has an edge of experience over the Monster Studios’ relatively young Nash Wonder but the future can only be promising for the fast rising producer.

The UG Pineapple Comedy tour came to an end on Friday with a show stopping comedy experience at Laftaz lounge, Centenary Park in Kampala. By 8pm, Laftaz was filled with revellers ready to catch some rib cracking jokes from a host of comedians including Teacher Mpamire, Dolibondo, Optional Allan, Madrat and Chico and Amooti Omubalanguzi among others.

At the entrance to the comedy show, free cocktails and shots of the Pineapple flavour were handed out to the enthusiastic revelers who waited for Uganda’s biggest comedians. The UG Pineapple lounge was a good place to stop and have a sunshine pineapple experience with the new UG flavour.

Comedy is only an addition to this Uganda’s biggest export and helps to bring fans together. Comedy at Laftaz’s gave the comedians a chance to showcase their improved talent. While new kids like Optional Allan are coming into the industry with promising talent, older comedians like Napoleon Emma who were flat in the yesteryears are now an improvement and their delivery of jokes is superb.

Dolibondo has never found it hard to make people laugh and he did not disappoint. Amooti on the other hand is still as funny as ever. He has incorporated music into his set and this has only spiced up and improved his stage performance. Madrat and Chico are also steadily researching and learning how to turn normal everyday life into a pack of jokes.

The show was crowned with a performance from the biggest male musician on the scene today, King Saha who perfornced his best hits, Biri Biri and Very well, among others.

Here are some photos from the event.
