If you are a lover of gospel music, you have most probably heard about “Kajambiya” Perhaps, you have seen him perform any of his songs. He is popularly known for hits like “Bullet”, “Kyatulidde”, “Ululate” and lately “Ani Aluleeta”

Born 29 years ago to the late Samuel Muwanguzi and Rose Lydia Muwanguzi, he attended Molly and Paul Busega Primary school for his nursery and Primary and then went to St. Henry’s College Kitovu (SHACK) for his O’Level, and later attended Mengo Senior School for his A’level.  He then joined Makerere University where he pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering.

“Kajambiya” says that he drew inspiration for his stage name from Hebrews 4:12 which says; “The word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. It is from that scripture that he decided to translate sword as Kajambiya to make it sound a bit comical and catchy. His real name is Jovan Ssebaggala.

He is a humble and reserved individual who loves people. He is also an unashamed lover of God and has often been seen doing ministry with his friends. He loves to serve God. When asked why he loves God so much, he simply smiled and said “It is because He loved me first”He has been a lover of music from the time he was a child. His face carries a nostalgic look while he shares on how they had a huge collection of cassette tapes at home. As a child, he loved to listen and dance to the music from this collection, with his favorites being ‘The Specials’ “Free Nelson Mandela” and Sammy Kasule’s “Maama Afumbye Ekitobeero.” He would sometimes find himself singing while drumming the sideboard or tables. He, however, discovered his ability to compose in senior one while at SHACK in 2003. That was a turning point in his life

He looks up to artists like Pompi and Travis Green. On what drives him; he says that challenges push him to get better each day. He believes that thinking outside the box is an aspect every man must have. His music is a pure revelation and is a result of a deep personal bible study and daily meditation on the word of God. The one thing that has made him tick is that he does not compromise. If he sets out to do something, he will do it as best as he can.

Asked on how he manages to do music yet he has a professional job, he said he believes that every responsible person must be able to balance out the time between his career, family and passion; this can only be done by proper planning. In his own words; “I have 8 hours of work and 6 hours of sleep in a day. There’s quite a lot I can do in the remaining 10 hours and music is one of them” This year, he intends to release more music, do a couple of videos and to release his debut album titled Chronicles of a Reborn Spirit. We can only wait for this exciting project to take form. He encourages youth to do their best, be their best and leave the rest to God.

On what inspires him; at first, it was the desire to participate in singing competitions at school but he later realized that music was the one avenue through which he would best express himself; he started to write songs depending on how he felt about different matters of life. He only ventured into doing music professionally as a response to the call of God on his life.

Nothing beats a resilient, principled and God fearing man. Kajambiya is all this and so much more. And we are sure that he is going far.  He is unstoppable. Like he says, “Ani Aluleeta”

Music wars never seem to end in this country of ours and when King Saha came out and claimed to have been the one who wrote Dr. Jose Chameleone’s Valu Valu and Badilisha recently, we knew we were in for another of such wars.

According to King Saha who has been to Coke Studio this year, he is the one who penned the two popular songs. Chameleone has however come out to reveal that this is all bullocks.

Jose Chameleone

Here is what Chameleone said about the entire saga when contacted; “Those young people have things that are disturbing them. Valu Valu is not a song for simple minded people. I don’t want to fight with anyone but he should stop claiming music that is not his. I went to studio and created the entire song, he doesn’t have a genius mind to create the work I create. He is lying. Let him write for someone else and we see. He should stop using the media to sell his lies.”

Chameleone then referred all those in doubt to his producer PaddyMan who also confirmed that the songs are indeed his.

King Saha

“We worked on Valu Valu in 2012. This was after I started my studio audio one in 2011 and I called Chameleone to come and support me. He is a freestyler. He didn’t come with any demo, or book with the song. He got everything from his head as we were recording,” Paddy of Audio 1 revealed.

It should however be noted that some musicians don’t respect songwriters and when the song becomes a hit, they claim it all and leave the artiste with nothing.

We will keep you posted.

In his confession at the Miracle Cathedral before a large gathering, the music guru told Pastor Robert Kayanja that he has had many ups and downs that almost led to him becoming a staunch devil worshipper.

Grace said; “I have done a lot of music with Eagles Band before we broke into different groups. There are times when I felt I was on top of the world and then I felt I was so down. I was so tempted. I had a band that ruled over Kampala airwaves for 16 years. Every musician in our era used to respect us. 4 years ago we split and everyone went their own way. This was the end of our happiness. We are still singing but in diminishing returns business ways. This I could do in December I cannot do today.”

Grace added; “Everything in my life is failing. I had 3 options, the first one was to become a staunch devil worshiper, the second one to become a sheikh to read the Quoran or the thrid one, to look for any church that could help me build myself. 3 weeks now, I don’t drink. Pastor help me and pray for me.

It is at this moment that Pastor Kayanja and the church prayed for Grace and dedicated him to God.

Eagles Production was formed in 1999 by Grace Ssekamatte, Mesach Semakula, Ronald Mayinja, Fred Seruga, and Geoffrey Lutaaya. They had all at one time been entertainers – dancers and singers; having started out in Emitos Band, which was led by the late Umaru Katumba, a defector from The Ebonies.

We will keep you posted.
