When you educate a girl, you educate a nation, goes a popular saying. Therefore to ensure growth and development of a nation, it is vital that the girl child receives a good education. This is the message renowned Ugandan music producer Magic Washington is trying to communicate in his latest song.

Dubbed “Our Girls”, Washington teamed up with singer Sanga Moses to advocate for girl child education. The song does not only champion girl child education, but also calls for an end to child marriages.

For Sanga Moses, ending ending child marriage is a cause close to his heart having seen his three sisters forced into early marriage before they celebrated their sixteenth birthday. Since 2010, he has been focused on economically empowering underprivileged mothers by training them and helping them to launch clean energy micro-businesses in Uganda converting locally sourced waste into clean cooking fuel (briquettes) and more recently energy saving cookstoves so that they have the incomes to send their children particularly girls to school.

“Our Girls” was produced by Magic Washington at Master’s studio and Video directed by Ark Menz.

While collabos with West African artists have been a major catalyst for the growth of new school Tanzanian musicians like Harmonize and Diamond Platnumz, Ugandan music legend Dr. Jose Chameleone has been blunt about his stand on the duets; adamant that these musicians would better just do this with fellow East Africans. After a coincidental meeting with Harmonize, fans hope Chameleone lands a collabo with the self-christened Konde Boy.

In a November interview on Citizen Radio’s Mseto program, King Joseph complained to Mzazi William Tuva, “New big artists like Diamond Platnumz and Harmonize have not done enough to uplift fellow East Africans in the music industry. Back in the day, we used to get enough support from the likes of Professor Jay.”

He added that the East Africans are never invited for shows in West Africa and the collabos aren’t promoted there like it’s done here; which is more of a parasitic relationship.

Dr. Chameleone posted a video on Instagram of him and Harmonize seemingly sharing contacts. A collabo with the Wasafi Star should be in the pipeline.

Christmas is the season to make merry and give back to those around us. And singer Pallaso marked his Christmas this year by giving back and spending time with the children of St. Paul’s children’s rehabilitation center in Kyampisi.

The “Hana” hitmaker, together with other members of his Team Good Music visited the rehabilitation centre last evening, bearing with them hampers and toys for the little ones.

Pallaso marked his Christmas this year by giving back and spending time with the children of St. Paul’s children’s rehabilitation center in Kyampisi.

They later visited a number of elders members in the community, to share and bring smiles to their faces, as part of the Christmas cheer.

“I decided to go to Kyampisi because the area is one of the many areas living below the poverty line. I learned about the area through a friend Racheal and we learned this area is full of innocent victims from child sacrifice. I randomly decided it’s a good place to start and give them a thought of a few gifts for Christmas,” Pallaso explains.
