Juliana Kanyomozi

She may not be so soundly heard today but songbird Juliana Kanyomozi is still a reckoning force in the Ugandan music business. She is the female singer that dominated the past decade. Most of all her awards were with the now defunct Pearl of Africa music awards where she won female artiste of the year back to back. She has in the other awards picked not so many of them but remains the most decorated female artiste with about 20 awards accolades.

4. Radio and Weasel.

Radio and Weasel

The dynamic duo cannot go unmentioned when talking Ugandan music evolution and growth. They invaded the music scene at around 2008 breaking off from José Chameleone’s Leone Island. The duo of Radio and Weasel has managed to scoop over 70 nominations converting only 27 of them into accolades. Radio and Weasel were the very first artistes to get nominated for the prestigious BET awards but unluckily lost the award. They have been awarded in different categories and awards both here and abroad. They are ranked 4th most decorated artistes with 27 awards.

3. Bebe Cool.
