New Artist Lucy - Special driver

Yeah, African music industry has two new artists that we have to look out to. Paul Okoye, one of the duo of popular music duo P-square, has signed two new singers that I really like. One of them is Lucy.

 Lucy doesn't just have the looks but she actually has a good voice. I love her first song called "special driver" that has a dancehall style.

I will really like to hear more from her.

Meet! Ekky - singer from Uganda

Anybody who follow my blog since the beginning, will notice my love for Ugandan music. I fell in love 2009 when I listened to my first Ugandan song by the artist David Lutalo ft. Bebe Cool which was "I can see" I listened to that song many times a day but I wouldn't be fed up with it, up till now it is one of my favorite songs. Especially the female artist got my attention, such as Blue 3, Ray C, Sylvia Namugenyi, JulianKanyomozi, Rema, Benah Namisinga just to mention a few.  

So the day before yesterday I was browsing the Internet when I came across the video of the Dance group Tabu Flo which I shared here

The song used in that video was from the Ugandan songstress Ekky, the songs name is Do you remember me I loved it from the first beat, so I tried to find out more about her music, and what can I say;  she is great!
Ekky is a singer and songwriter residing in Ugandan capital city Kampala.

She is the daughter of a neurosurgeon (father) and a banker (mother), she has one little brother. She moved to London to persue her studies in the Aberystwyth University in Wales. In 2009 she gradueted with an LLB law degree. She worked shortly in London but decided to return to Uganda to follow her dream of becoming a singer.


Ekkys music career started 2012 with her debut single Why lie, it was very successful in Ugandan with many radio stations playing it.
In 2013, Ekky was nominated in two categories for the Hihipo music awards for best breakthrough artist and her single Why Lie for best Afropop and Soul song.

Ekky is currently working on her new studio album, "The African Love Story", the first song that she released from that album is Do you remember me

I personally can't wait to hear more of her music, make sure to follow her on social media such as:

Here are some of here songs that I like!

Ekky - Do you remember me

Ekky ft. Apass - Trouble Maker

African Divas: Alicios Theluji (Congo)

Alicios Theluji

Alicios Theluji is an emerging African singer. She was born in November 1987 in Congo and spent there until her 7th birthday. Unfortunately, she had to flee with her family to Kenya because of the civil war. She sings in four languages ​​(English, French, Swahili and Lingala). Her music is heavily influenced by Congolese rumba and Zouk rythms. Her first hit single was "Mpita Njia" which she sang with the equally talented Juliana K. The lyrics are about a heartbreaker.  An exceptional artist whose thoughtful lyrics reflect the themes of everyday life. 

Alicios is not only talented, but also smart, she pursues an online degree on Business Administration at BTH University in Stokholm / Sweden.

In an interview with TAP may Alicios was asked what influenced the African youth the most. Her answer has impressed me very much.
Here is an excerpt from the interview:

TAPmag: What 3 issues do you think affect the African youth the most today?

  • Lack of confidence: The majority of African youths believe that there are other races that are superior than them when it comes to intelligence. History has somehow proven that right; at least the history thats being put on our faces. Its up to parents and teachers to help these children improve their self esteem because it will allow them to dare, dream bigger and to believe in their ideas. Everything starts with an idea and you only get to make something big out of your ideas when you have confidence in yourself. Its very important for the youths to be told our history from the African perspective. We need to tell them about our heroes; that will only strengthen them.

And as Whitney Houston once sang '' give them a sense of pride, to make it easier....'' 

  • Lack of freedom of speech: As a young person or mostly a woman, your voice is not really attended to. When interacting with adults, sometimes even appearing smarter than them is seen as a sign of disrespect. In African families, Dad is always right! Even if you have a better idea than him, you will still have ti keep it to yourself because he is supposed to always look smarter than you. So we are not really encouraged to be free thinkers and to express ourselves from an early age. A brain is like a muscle, if you dont engage it, it gets lazy and eventually dies. I also think our governments can really use the youths creative minds to the benefit of everyone. Young people are very creative, if nurtured and used properly, I really believe they can produce more than we think.
  • Lack of opportunities/jobs: Just the thought of you not being able to get a decent job after you've finished university alone takes away your motivation and will to study and go through school. 
Alicios Theluji

TAPmag: If you had to change something about Africa, what would it be!

It would definitely have to be Tribes and tribalism...they draw lines among us and i feel like they have more disadvantages than advantages. We need to understand that ''we can'', TOGETHER! I really want to see Africa united. Our own tribes have been used as a wepon to destroy us throughout the history. We've come a long way, but we still have so much to do. And I believe that we'll get there! If we UNITE!!!

Music: Zahara - Destiny!

Hello Peoples,

is been a while but finally I'm back! I missed my lil Blog and especially my Reader.
I hope you had a great start in this year of 2014!

Lets start this year with this great song by south african singing sensation Zahara with her song "Destiny".

Such a great song with a wonderful message: "Only God knows how long it will take for me to reach my destiny...But I know I have to find my own destiny"

I pray for all of you to find your Destiny in this year of 2014!!!!


Some people live their dreams
Some their destiny pass them by
Tell me the reason why nothing ever stays the same
Sorrow and shame whoo oo oo oo hoo oo oo
Only God knows how long it will take for me to reach my destiny [x2]

Everything maybe rushing on me
Everything maybe too slow on me
But I will be here holding it down
I know where I am going.....

Winning, loosing doesn't matter 
I will keep on trying
I won't give up 

Everything maybe rushing on me
Everything maybe too slow on me
But I will be here holding it down
I know where I am going.....

People telling me it's a highway
And a ponder of letting go
But I know in each and every end of the tunnel
There will be a little light in the end
And I thought of taking the route everybody else
Oh yes has been taking
But I know I have to find my own destiny hoo hoo

Everything maybe rushing on me
Everything maybe too slow on me
But I will be here holding it down
I know where I am going.....

Music: D'Prince - Take Banana

Hey Guys, What do you think about the song of D'Prince "Take Banana"? For a good song, you need more than just half-naked girls who wiggle their Bum Bum. Maybe the song title said it all!
