Published

on

There is no doubt Uganda has variety of talent in the music scene and with supremacy declared on different parameters today we choose to see who is Uganda’s most decorated singer as per 2017.

In the past artistes have been weighed on number of hits, assumed number of fans, time spent doing good music and maybe wealth. Here are the top five most awarded artistes to date.

5. Juliana Kanyomozi.

She may not be so soundly heard today but songbird Juliana Kanyomozi is still a reckoning force in the Ugandan music business. She is the female singer that dominated the past decade. Most of all her awards were with the now defunct Pearl of Africa music awards where she won female artiste of the year back to back. She has in the other awards picked not so many of them but remains the most decorated female artiste with about 20 awards accolades.

4. Radio and Weasel.

The dynamic duo cannot go unmentioned when talking Ugandan music evolution and growth. They invaded the music scene at around 2008 breaking off from José Chameleone’s Leone Island. The duo of Radio and Weasel has managed to scoop over 70 nominations converting only 27 of them into accolades. Radio and Weasel were the very first artistes to get nominated for the prestigious BET awards but unluckily lost the award. They have been awarded in different categories and awards both here and abroad. They are ranked 4th most decorated artistes with 27 awards.

3. Bebe Cool.

You cannot mention awards without mentioning Bebe Cool. He is a reckoning force of the music industry in Uganda. Starting his career in the last 90s, Bebe Cool as expected has won himself most of the awards from awarding bodies in and outside Uganda. Bebe Cool still competes favourably with the present generation younger artistes. It is estimated that in his two decade career, he has won about 30 awards.

2. Jose Chameleone.

Jose Chameleone

Jose Chameleone is no ordinary artiste in these rankings. He is one of the pillars of the Ugandan music industry starting his career more than 17 years ago in 1999. He paved way for almost of the present generation singers. Chameleone was with no doubt the finest artiste of the past decade and dominated all the awards in and outside Uganda. He has managed to collect about 38 awards from within and outside Uganda. He comes in second place.

1. Eddy Kenzo.

After being unfollowed by the President or rather his administrator, Jose Chameleone has not taken Twitter lightly. The singer has done some cleaning up and has been left with only 108 accounts to follow and only two of those are Ugandan artistes.

It is not rocket science that Chameleone only decides to follow his two brothers Pallaso and Radio&Weasel, had it been any others maybe we would be wondering the criteria he used.

Chameleone is one of the most followed Ugandan artistes on Twitter and not following you may not go so well with you as an artiste.

Published

on

By Staff Writer

Over the week, a video of Salvado’s standup performance went viral. It was one of his most creative jokes to-date about different airlines and their themes.

On one of the jokes about Rwanda Air, genocide was mentioned as one of the topics air hostesses can’t miss.

Now Rwandans have picked that up and taken offence. They have given Salvado an ultimatum to apologize. But he is not about to allow.

On his Twitter profile, he says those offended are missing the humour. The Rwandans insist the 1994 Genocide against the tutsi is not something to joke about.
