DJ Bush baby took to twitter and gave a tribute to Gabriel K music. Quite a history! Below are excerpts from @djbushbaby
“We groomed our vocals and became an Acappella group to reckon with in Kampala – Gabriel K sounded like Dru Hill’s Sisqo, becoming the lead singer, I was mainly a writer and Walter was a producer.
Studio sessions were hard to book,afford back then,thanks to Afrigo Band’s Moses Matovu, he often let us use free studio session at his Kibuli based studio whenever Palu Kafeero & Fred Ssebatta were not recording.
We continued observing & listening to black American R&b Bands for more inspiration and girl groups like SWV.
We were also church boys,hence influences like TAKE 6, Boyz2Men & producers like Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis.
Almost 20 years later we all took different paths in life, I became an entertainer,Walter is still in ministry,and @kakurugabriel is a marketer/creative.
Days ago @kakurugabriel shocked me with a flash containing his new music.He became successful, and is now BORED in my view having achieved it all, he also developed health complications that required he takes a break from his business.
He is back to his 1st love, MUSIC! And I am so happy for him. One thing caught my attention though, his content distribution method.The flash comes customized.
Years have gone by and the industry has drastically changed,so he/we cant kick that A Cappella stuff we still cherish to date.
He has morphed into today’s sound and is trying to find a niche for himself. I like the fact that he’s collaborating with young writers.
Don’t take my word for it,check out his body of work at gkmusic.com
