Ava Peace (19), real name Namugonza Maureen Peace, is a rising Ugandan recording female artiste. She categorizes her music to fall amongst the Afro-beat, Dancehall and R&B genres.
She was born on 13th January 2000 at Mengo hospital to Mr. Kato Gonzaga and Ms. Christine Nakamatte. She is one of six children born to the couple. The family spent most of their early years in Kyengera, a Kampala suburb.
Peace started singing professionally this year and she seems to have found footing with the first step as her new song titled ‘Nsitula’, featuring Spice Diana and Daddy Andre, is becoming a regular on most playlists.
She has also gained a major boost for her career by signing a deal with one of the proven record labels; Black Market Records, which is based in Sacramento, USA.
The label also boasts of other major singers in Kenya, Uganda, South Africa, and allover the world including Rabadaba, Daddy Andre, Boondocks, Kvan, Chulo Mac, among others.
Education has become a huge factor in most artistes’ careers and Peace is currently pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Social Sciences at Makerere University.
With the talent and backing of the record label, we anticipate Ava Peace will be one of the rookies to watch come 2020. We can’t wait to watch more of her magic unfold.
