Multi-Talented Flavia Mawagi Narrates Village Love in New Song

You might remember Flavia Mawagi from her successful debut single Napakinga and her groovy song Gutojjere, two songs that thrust her in the thick of Uganda’s music industry before she broke off to pay much more attention to her theatre and movie acting.

Now, Mawagi is back and in her own words, not about to go away again. She returns to the music scene with a new single calledNdiwakyalo, a song that will certainly have her fans and critics pay attention.

“Ndiwakyalo is a song that features a village girl who has fallen head over heels in love with an uptown guy. In the song, I labour to make a case that despite being a village girl I am ready to love him,” Mawagi says of the song.

“In the song, I bring to the relationship, rural-urban excitement and I tell my lover that he shouldn’t be surprised when I treat him like how village women treat their men. In the song, I portray a submissive but strong lover,” she explains.

Mawagi, also a practising fashion model, recorded the song at Esos Music with Micky Pro handling the production. Already the song is playing on radios across the country. A video, according to Mawagi, is being worked on.

The singer’s music journey dates way back to the days when she was a choir member of various schools she attended. She first professionally recorded a song in 2014 when she released Napakinga.
