Music Review: Nva Ntinda By St. Nelly Sade

Published

This will fluff feathers. Do you remember Kendrick Lamar’s bars that stirred the Hip Hop fraternity across the face of the world? Well, to bring it up to speed with you, as a Hip Hop fanatic, you might have had a shove on the East Coast-West Coast feud between rappers from both hoods. Maybe you were barely out of your diapers then, but still, you have the internet which can make you take a detour and recall what ensued in a single click. And it was grim, that one. Grim and ugly.

‘Nva Ntinda’ might trudge on the same path. The newly dropped track by St. Nelly Sade, ‘Nva Ntinda’ is sort of a laid-back piece against an equally laid-back instrumentation. It opens up with Nelly Sade introducing himself and proudly barks that he is from Ntinda, skimming from Wandegeya weaving through the alleys and jumping over rolex stalls and chapattis. He yaks on to Mulago, Kamwokya, Bukoto, past Country Kabira Club and, poof, to Ntinda. 

What started off as an innocent track entirely about the location of Ntinda, as the song choked on, it took a completely different tangent angle. I expected Nelly Sade to talk about the fragile and the cajoled middle class that stays in Ntinda. I expected him to, with unmatched pride, talk about the smoking hot birds that roam Ntinda town, and the likes. But he veers off that path and throws darts at the Hip Hop world in Uganda, blaming rappers for abusing their fans (yawn). And at some point he mentions Rubaga and I am sure the diminutive rappers that hail from those precincts might have sunk in their seats (or caps).

Nonetheless, ‘Nva Ntinda’ is an extremely smart piece that pounds on the soul, slowly, like raindrops that pour on your roof at night when sleep is lazily shooing you off this world. But, to me, I expected much from this seemingly well-executed piece of vocal art. I expected a man from Ntinda, proud to hail from those rich echelons and, perhaps, with sarcasm, battling other parts of this dusty town. I expect much and, clearly, I was robbed of the much prospect I had for the song.

Good song; well-executed and all, but Nelly Sade, you would have yakked on a bit. If you were going to Ntinda, you left me in Bukoto, see?

Below is his speech after the official handover of the travel facility.

“It’s was a great morning as I presented a BUS to WAKISO GIANTS FC at the home ground in Wakiso.

Upon my recent travel around the USA 2018,

As I was on my way to Phoenix I fortunately sat next to one kind Man, As we chatted he took me though an adventure of his business. I also shared to him who I was which got him overwhelmed and upon off boarding the flight we shared contacts and promised to reach out each other again.

Yes we did when I met him again In Oregon, we talked about passions in which I told him of what I do beyond music. I love sports and – Wakiso Giants FC my team that I have loved and supported regardless!!

He picked a lot of interest and asked me what best he can contribute to us.

On more talk he mentioned that he had a bus company and asked Whether giving WAKISO GIANTS one would make a change. I was so happy and immediately reached the administration of this team because he only gave a bus to the team and wasn’t responsible to ship and pay tax for it.

Long story short the Bus is finally here and today morning I officially handed it to the team together with the FUFA president Mr. Moses Magogo

I am so proud that we have ability that we can exploit if given a chance. PURPLE SHARKS – Enjoy your bus LEONE ISLAND MUSIC EMPIRE” Chameleone affirmed.
