Navio performs his smash hit “Njogereza” at Roast and Rhyme event.

Navio who was the first to step on stage, minutes after 6pm, entertained the partiers with his songs that included “Nawuliranga”, “Buguma”, “Kigozi” and his smash hit “Njogereza” that roused the crowd who at this point were on their feet as they danced along, while he paved the way for Maddox.

Steve Keys wowed the audience with his mastery of the keyboard.

The already excited crowd was thrown into a frenzy when the emcees of the day Roger Mugisha and Malaika Nyanzi announced that Maddox was next on stage. Not even a technical glitch that lasted several minutes could dampen the crowd’s mood. And when Maddox finally appeared, the ecstatic crowd who were now packed closer to the stage welcomed him with loud cheers.

They sang along to every one of his songs which included “Irene”, “Omuyimbi”, “Take It Easy”, and “Namagembe” among others. Maddox concluded the performances of the evening as he invited other singers of the day that included Navio, Benon, Kenneth Mugabi and Steve Keys for a rendition of his single “Nakatudde”, before DJ Crisio took over the turntables to carry on the party as revelers started departing.

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.

Former Blu 3 member and self proclaimed dance hall queen ,Cindy Sanyu has come out to critic some areas of the current music industry saying that people who cannot sing are getting massive airplay only because their pockets are heavy.

She says it is not about talent anymore unlike back in the day where musicians had to work so hard to earn their place at the top of the music industry in Uganda.

“Unlike before, in the current music industry anyone can sing as long as they have money to pay for airplay. It’s no longer about talent. These days It’s easy to find a musician who can’t sing (live), can’t write or play any instrument but when their music is at the top. All one does is to pay for airplay,”she said.

“We had to compete against the likes of Juliana Kanyomozi, Irene Namubiru among others to earn our respect. But not anymore. Music is now about paying for airplay…not talent anymore.”
