It is typical of members of the hip hop fraternity in Uganda to release songs at the year end, rapping about the most famous and infamous events of the year. In the songs intended to wrap up the year, rappers show off their lyrical prowess and catchy flow with the usual goal of edutainment. Jim Nola MC, who rose to fame after replying to Feffe Bussi’s “Who is who” diss track, has done his own — in a fashion hardcore hip hop fans(including himself) aren’t usually happy with.
It should be remembered that in his diss track titled “Hip Hop Saviour”, Jim aka Abedunego used the opportunity to not only poetically lash out at Feffe Bussi, the rap battle instigator, but also bash rapper Fik Fameica and Gravity Omutujju for leaning a lot towards dancehall in their hiphop songs. This earned him respect as a new rapper that had come to revive hiphop, and others even saw him as a reincarnation of GNL Zamba.
However in his Rap Up, The Son Of Najjuma leaned a lot towards the dancehall he dissed colleagues for, and even though his lyrical depth and flow is impressive like always, the unorthodox beats prove he has also been pulled towards the more commercial side.

Pallaso releases #FreeBobiWine song. Listen to it here!
The ongoing political situation in Uganda is no secret, especially the forced detention of singer-cum-politician Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine. The past week has seen many Ugandans and the world over rally behind the artiste, extending their support to bid for his immediate release.
And what better way to do this than through music? Ugandan singer Pallaso has today released a 4-minute track addressing the issue. In the song, he calls on government to listen to the plea of Ugandans and free Bobi Wine, for the sake of peace.
The track, produced by Eddy Dee, was released via on social media, with the lyrics stressing the need for amicable means to be devised to tackle the issue, before it’s too late.
“I wrote this song because I feel the one thing we need in this nation, which is peace, is getting destabilized. Plus, I am trying to pass on a message, basing on how I feel and what I hear amongst the population. Bobi Wine is not only a husband, father and son of this nation, he is a symbol of hope for many young people. We have so much hope in him, and I believe that what he stands for isn’t to go against the government, but rather to bring the much needed change in this country,” Pallaso says.
