The rapper made his first appearance on the music scene in late 2017 with the single Kutama since then no set back in his music career. He is the only Ugandan artist to appear on this list which was compiled by Dj Edu and princess Irede Abumere according to artiste’s style and sound of music, Other artists in the same category included Tems and Omah lay from Nigeria, the duo who were recently arrested in Uganda over holding a concert.
