Music Review: Nva Ntinda By St. Nelly Sade

This will fluff feathers. Do you remember Kendrick Lamar’s bars that stirred the Hip Hop fraternity across the face of the world? Well, to bring it up to speed with you, as a Hip Hop fanatic, you might have had a shove on the East Coast-West Coast feud between rappers from both hoods. Maybe you were barely out of your diapers then, but still, you have the internet which can make you take a detour and recall what ensued in a single click. And it was grim, that one. Grim and ugly.

‘Nva Ntinda’ might trudge on the same path. The newly dropped track by St. Nelly Sade, ‘Nva Ntinda’ is sort of a laid-back piece against an equally laid-back instrumentation. It opens up with Nelly Sade introducing himself and proudly barks that he is from Ntinda, skimming from Wandegeya weaving through the alleys and jumping over rolex stalls and chapattis. He yaks on to Mulago, Kamwokya, Bukoto, past Country Kabira Club and, poof, to Ntinda. 

What started off as an innocent track entirely about the location of Ntinda, as the song choked on, it took a completely different tangent angle. I expected Nelly Sade to talk about the fragile and the cajoled middle class that stays in Ntinda. I expected him to, with unmatched pride, talk about the smoking hot birds that roam Ntinda town, and the likes. But he veers off that path and throws darts at the Hip Hop world in Uganda, blaming rappers for abusing their fans (yawn). And at some point he mentions Rubaga and I am sure the diminutive rappers that hail from those precincts might have sunk in their seats (or caps).

Nonetheless, ‘Nva Ntinda’ is an extremely smart piece that pounds on the soul, slowly, like raindrops that pour on your roof at night when sleep is lazily shooing you off this world. But, to me, I expected much from this seemingly well-executed piece of vocal art. I expected a man from Ntinda, proud to hail from those rich echelons and, perhaps, with sarcasm, battling other parts of this dusty town. I expect much and, clearly, I was robbed of the much prospect I had for the song.

Good song; well-executed and all, but Nelly Sade, you would have yakked on a bit. If you were going to Ntinda, you left me in Bukoto, see?

Last Thursday saw two great artistes hug and confess to eachother willingness to work together. Cindy Sanyu who is arguably best female singer and Chameleone who too is believed to be finest among males shared same stage at comedy store in Lugogo.

In the middle of Chameleone’s session, he paused and called Cindy on stage who had nothing but praise for her. The pair hugged. Chameleone then admitted that he loved Cindy and her music. Chameleone also wondered why they had never thought of a song together. It is at this moment that Cindy admitted she would be proud to be on same track with him. “I can never say No to Chameleone, no one would” Cindy said.

It is on these grounds that we think Cindy and Chameleone could be on the same track this year.
