The Mith

By Our Reporter

Renowned Ugandan Hip hop star, The Mith, will be one of the acts at the upcoming Blankets and Wine Kampala  that is slated for this Sunday, 18th December at Lugogo Cricket Oval.

Tom Mayanja aka The Mith aka Mr. So UG, also a member of Hip hop group Klear Kut, is one of the ‘fathers’ of the Hip hop music industry in Uganda. Having been on the music scene for close to twenty years, it is safe to say that The Mith has helped shape the music industry in Uganda, especially the Hip hop genre.

With already two albums to his name; “Destination Africa” and “The Week of September”, The Mith is working on new projects that will include his third album and a collaborative EP.

We caught up with The Mith ahead of the last Blankets and Wine Kampala on Uganda’s 2016 social calendar.

The Mith who believes that there is no ‘perfect song’, says he draws his inspiration from conversations with different people, driving around and generally being observant.

On whether he had any particular Ugandan artists that he wished to work with, The Mith said; “Collaborations are key to staying relevant. So, yes, there are some artists I would love to work with. Sandra Suubi, Michael Kitanda and others out of my genre I am paying attention to, because I do like the music they have been putting out.”

On being asked to describe the Hip hop scene in Uganda, he said; “The Hip hop scene in Uganda is vibrant, exciting and progressive. One could say that the scene is ‘Lit’.”

The Mith who came to the scene with Klear Kut, the group that had the first Ugandan video air on MTV, said that they have never left the scene as group members still make music. In fact, the group has a project in the works.

On his five year plan, The Mith says; “married. Ha!!! Seriously though, there are plans we will unveil real soon, that will put me on the five year plan that we have set up, and y’all will know then.”

Sponsored by Tusker Malt Lager, Blankets and Wine is East Africa’s premier music experience, designed to showcase outstanding musicians in the emerging genres of afro-based music. The 15th edition will be headlined by Tanzania’s top singer Ali Kiba. Other acts will include Jemimah Sanyu, Giovanni Kinying and DJ Naselow.

Entrance fee is 100,000 UGX and gates open at 12:00pm.
