The Rwandan duo of Charly Na Nina have had reasonable success in the music industry,most of which they have to thank Uganda for.

I mean,they have made some great music with Ugandan artists like Geo Steady who worked with them on “Owooma.” ,Bebe Cool who featured them on his jam,”I do” among others .They have also worked with Ugandan producers and won hearts of the Ugandan music audience.

It seems Charlotte  Rulinda and Fatuma Muhoozi  have fallen in love with Uganda,plan to get married to the banana Republic and set up home here, which also makes sense since they have heard a few issues back home after recently parting ways with their manager.

The two have reportedly been living in Makindye, Kampala for the better part of this year and  are working on more music in Uganda.
