Black Market records continues to strength and capture grip in the Ugandan music industry. We have learnt that the label after dealing with Daddy Andre has added new potential talents to label who they will be managing henceforth.

Black Market label last month signed Junior Gentle and KVan who they will produce and manage music for.

Black Market label seeks to invade and shine in Uganda. Who are these two artistes.

JUNIOR GENTLE

Junior Gentle grew up in Mbarara city, he is Ugandan by birth. His real name is (Simon Kasoke). He grew up in a Godly home with his father as a church pastor, this environment was serene for his musical desire as he was part of church activities like playing guitar, piano and being part of the church choir. He listened to gospel music, soul and RnB.Junior Gentle started music professionally in 2017 after passing a singing competition around his village. His first audio recording was in 2017 in a song called “ In Plan” a RnB song. He does RnB and Afro Dancehall, but he can also rap, his musical touch is versatile. (2018) he recorded his second audio and first video in a song called “Oruchima”, it was his first afro dancehall hit. He later went to Kampala to look for Daddy Andre a popular producer, writer and music artist where he recorded his third track with him “Ya Gooder” (2018). He was signed into a music label “Black Market Records “with” its headquarters at Sacramento USA. Junior feels that with this contract he is going to make his name an icon in the whole of Africa and beyond.

Junior faced challenges like promotion and marketing. His bigger other challenge was that people listen differently, so being rejected or denied chances to perform was his big challenge.

He listened to artists like Chris Brown and Kid Ink a lot. However he looks up to CB and Jacob Latimore more for inspiration because he has a little touch of acting in him.

KVAN

Khabuya Vanessa Marion, born in Uganda Jinja is a dancehall artist known by her stage name, KVAN. Kvan refers to herself as the “Goodest girl around town” because she believes in her own originality, uniqueness and simplicity. The dancehall artist is of Bugisu origin. Kvan went to school in Kampala. Kvan kept her desire to do music a secret from her parents because they were not so musically informed. She feared for them rejecting her plans. She writes her lyrics too.Kvan started music as early as 8 years of age. She used to write musical pieces and even form groups. (2013-2014) she made appearances to different studios, (2016-2017) she made another attempt to the studios. (2017) she recorded her single debut (Show Dem) which basically stressed on everyone else like her with a dream as big as hers to come out and show the world their worth. (Back off) basically was for attracting positive energy only by telling those who don’t believe to walk away. (Tabaaza) is a ballad love song. (Sugar Daddy) this came in at a time when she was in her first year in the university, it was inspired by how she saw girls go down for money through sex from old rich men. Kvan has made collaborations with artists like, Dj Fikie.

Kvan was consequently disregarded for her distinct style of music. Producers told her she was a male voice wannabe. Kvan had it rough for the studio moment because she was young and couldn’t converse that well with full grown producers. She would come to the studio early but still her chances were given to artists that were considered prominent. Sometimes she was made to write pieces for people she find at the studio or even be a vixen before her music was recorded. She did not have finances to support her studio sessions.(2019) she was signed into a music label, Black Market Records, this was a breather as it meant all her expenses on music production would be catered for.

Kvan finds her musical inspiration from things that happen around her, and most importantly nature. Kvan does not look up to any musical icon for inspiration. However, she used to listen to artists like, Beenie Man, Missy Eliot, Shabba Ranx, Maxi Priest, Plies, Shaggy and Sean Paul. Besides music Kvan is a painter, basketball player, soccer, piano and makes beats too. Kvan is currently working on her debut album.

Ugandan-South African based businesswoman, Zari Hassan (Zarina Tlale) is at over head with People Power supporters and she can’t hold to their venomous any longer.

This follows her recent Facebook live video where she questioned People Power Movement flag bearer Bobi Wine’s credentials of contesting for the Presidential seat.

Zari’s remarks on Bobi Wine’s potential of becoming the President of Uganda sounded unpleasant to his fans and the People Power supporters worldwide as they immediately flogged her on social media.

Zari Hassan

Today (Monday) morning, the self-proclaimed ‘Boss lady’ took it to her social media with a decision to limit accessibility of commenting on her live videos, which will only favour strictly her friends.

She has also promised to help and educate her tormentors more about her recent ‘Credentials’ request concerning Bobi Wine’s candidature in the upcoming Presidential elections.

Read Zari’s statement;

Going live 12pm South African time (1pm Ugandan time)

We will continue to educate you as much as you think intimidation and abuses is what works for you.

Comments limited to ‘friends’ only since some you listen with your behind and don’t listen with a brain to understand. Tell a friend to tell a friend that The Bosslady has a message for the country and its citizens.

See you later….

We will keep you posted

Published

By BigEyeUg Team

Sheila seems to be in control of the Uganda’s media at the moment with her one month old ‘Stop cyber bulling in Uganda’ campaign.

After her victory over Urban TV’s Tina Fierce whom she accused of using her ‘Scoop On Scoop’ show to throw malicious insults at her, Sheila has now turned guns at Nation Media’s Isaac Katende aka Kuku Wazabanga (Kasuku).

This follows Kasuku’s remarks on Sheila Gashumba’s ‘Stop Cyber Bullying in Uganda’ while appearing on NBS TV’s ‘Uncut Sabula’ show.

Kasuku

During the interview, Kasuku asserted that Sheila has no moral authority to run such a campaign having also been a culprit of social media bullying when she used her handles to insult, former NTV presenter, Robin Kisti.

Kasuku’s opinion didn’t sound pleasant to Sheila even for a blink of an eye as she immediately set a Facebook live video to drop her response on his claims.

In the video, Gashumba revealed how Kasuku should have been their (Sheila and Gods Plan) target to hunt-down in this campaign because of his continuous malicious criticism to musicians.

She also says that Kasuku is just being a hypocrite whom she once helped to have his first buffet at Kampala Serena Hotel.

Sheila has also shifted the war to Twitter as she continues to shower the ‘Talk and Talk’ show presenter with unbearable insults of his career.

Age is just a number it has never meant Intelligence!! Kasuku you should be retired now allowing other young talented youth to have a chance to be on radio and tv than attacking public figures!! You should be on holiday right now!!” tweeted Sheila.

Surely Kasuku seems to have been a valuable item for Gashumba to ruin under this campaign as she has also onboarded boyfriend, Gods Plan in the war.

Gods plan indirectly thumbs Kasuku for having begged him Shs. 50K for transport.

He also advises him to first pocket adequate evidence before giving opinions during discussions.

I remember giving someone 50k outside guvnor for transport. Naye MUJOOGA

My advice to journalist or radio presenters is always investigate before opening your mouth to give an opinion. Your opinion has to be based on facts not because your friend told you his side,” tweeted Gods Plan.

However, Kasuku seems not over taken by the couple’s words as he buries hope of getting any reply from him.

Afta alot of thought,am not going to get involved in a verbal exchange with Sheila Gashumba or the boyfie.This has become their way of life lately. They can mek all the noise in the world and enjoy retweets but not today… Time will tell. Gudnite,” wrote Kasuku.

The campaign was initiated by Sheila and boyfriend, Gods Plan last month to curb the thrilling social media harassment in Uganda, marking celebrities as the best victims.

Having landed Kasuku, one of the most celebrated critic media personalities in the country on her docket, the public highly anticipates the fresh war to escalate beyond this point.
