Last Night was the night most HipHop fans had been waiting for but none more than the man of the night Mckenzie Bryan Sabiiti. It took him a good number of years to make his mark on the music industry but he finally did and in a huge way.
Bryan’s Company Kella Music premiered their heavily anticipated ‘RudeBoy Kella Music’ album at Gatto Matto yesterday evening. The entire evening could be summarized as a celebration of not only Hip Hop but a fusion of various genres of music on the same platform.Mckenzie partnered up with Talent Africa, SMS ONE, Chano8 and Radio city to achieve his album.
If you didn’t know what was happening and just stumbled in you would have thought it was the biggest congregation of various artist with immense talent all there to support and encourage one another. The artists that showed include Atlas, Maurice Kirya, Ruyonga, Apass, Navio, The Mith, Leila Kayondo, Don Mc, Mun’G, Maro, Andy Music,Keko, Enigma, Flex the paper, Nince Henry and St Nelly. Other celebrities included Anne Kansime with pal Karitas, Andre Kabuura, Judithiana, Salvado, Alex Muhangi, Malaika, Shovan and many more.
Mckenzi didn’t only achieved an amazing album but also built great working and social relationship among different artists, Djs and producers. The beautiful Deedan who was the host kicked off the party at 9:45 with Hip hop freestyle, later into the night we were graced with more performances from everyone that attended, For the first time on stage Maro and The mith performed their hit ‘Eh Mama’, Navio’s ‘Njogereza’ “Crazy’, Apass’ “Give Me a Kiss’, Lilian’s ‘Memories’ and many more.
The albums itself is something else I won’t bother you with the long list of heavy hitters on the album, this isn’t the review but it is definitely something you want playing in your home and car radio. One thing i learnt from Mckenzie’s achievement is that in the music industry success isn’t only in front of the mic but also in the vision of the force that brings 2 or more big talents together to make great music. I can’t wait to see what he does next.

A few weeks after several artistes released ‘Tubonga nawe’, a track that showed their allegiance to President Museveni and his NRM political party, some rumors circulated that Eddy Kenzo was in disagreement with his fiancée and fellow musician Rema who was also part of that project.
But last Monday during Bobi Wine’s show in Busabaala, Kenzo for starters came on Adam Mulwana’s mental track ‘Tokaa kwa barara’ which he revived to ‘Tooka kwa barabara, Kenzo ameyingiya’ (Give way, Kenzo has arrived) before receiving a T-shirt encrypted with words ‘#Freemyvote’.
As if that wasn’t enough, the ‘Soraye’ artiste went ahead and called all journalists to be his witness after calling upon the government to free Col Kizza Besigye.
“I am Ugandan; I believe in peace, we are done with elections. Why is the Government still holding Dr Kiiza Besigye” he said this and reminded the media to pass on the message so as to let the man free.
Adam Mulwana also performed his ‘Toka Kwa Barabara’ song before Swahaba Kasumba, a religious artiste performed Wesige Besige.

When it comes to great hip hop Mcees in Uganda, the name Ruyonga often comes out among the best in the land. Edwin Ruyonga aka ‘RU’ is one rapper whose tenacity speaks for itself. His immense quality has often left many people/fans wondering what words they can use to describe him because sometimes even the best compliment feels like an understatement.
In an exclusive interview with Ruyonga, he said,
“I am one of those people who God has blessed with a unique gift. I don’t think the world can claim to own my success. They are not responsible. First of all, they knew that if they put me with any of their best, either I beat them or we come out on the same level.”
The proud father of one recently released his 2015 wrap up song which has further strengthened his position at the top. In the song, Ruyonga tackles all sorts of issues from Ugandan politics to the fundraising for the late Rosemary Nankabirwa to the shots fired in Paris to what would Magufuli do among others. He also praised the likes of Salvado and Eddy Kenzo for their successes last year.
