Dorrys Mutagunga, a well known artiste from Western Uganda is tipped to win the Hipipo Award this Saturday under the Best Western Region song category.
Mutagunga edges her competitors because her song, Kaana Ka Maama has made her go places and win awards.
Red Pepper online understands that Kaana Ka Maama song made Mutagunga win the Western Artiste of the year accolade in the recently concluded Western Media Awards.
She is currently in Bujumbura the capital of Burundi where is in studio with Inyangye dancers.
“I studied all it takes to make a master piece that can live on forever and to me, it’s not about the number of songs but the quality of that one special piece and I think Kaana ka Mama is just doing that for me,” said Mutagunga.
