Ugandan songstress Martha Mukisa is aiming for the stars, declaring her ambition to one day clinch the prestigious Grammy Award.
Inspired by the recent triumph of South African sensation Tyla, who secured her maiden Grammy despite fierce competition from industry heavyweights like Burna Boy and Davido, Mukisa sees the accolade as the ultimate validation of her musical career.
In the fiercely competitive world of music, particularly for African artists, the road to Grammy glory is filled with challenges. Mukisa acknowledges the task ahead, recognising the influx of exceptionally talented musicians emerging daily, intensifying the already steep competition.
Despite her music primarily resonating within Uganda’s borders, Mukisa remains undeterred in her pursuit of international recognition.

Reflecting on Uganda’s Grammy history, Mukisa draws inspiration from Eddy Kenzo, the sole Ugandan artist to has received a Grammy nomination to date.
Though Kenzo didn’t clinch the award, his nomination served as a proud moment for the Ugandan music scene, showcasing its potential on the global stage.
