We talked to him and shared his success story
Where did the love for producing come from?
This draws from way back even when I was in primary school. I learnt production when I was young. I always created time for the studio. On Holidays I would go to Studio and do some practice.
How long have you been in industry?
Professionally I have been in the industry for 5 years now. I started well in 2017. I was with Dr. Fizzy at Harvey Records. He trained me how to produce good music. In 2018, I worked with Maro at Volume up as a producer. Later I started my own studio legend production.
Is music production your full time job?
Yes. This is my full time job. Music is what I love.
So far what has been your major project you have worked on and been successful.
Oh. Okay I have got a couple of projects I consider to be successful. I have produced Gimpe by Lydia Jazmine, Jealousy for Sheeba Karungi, Muyayu for Mudra,Ainama by Nina Roz, Yaka I co-produced with Artin and Andre. I have many songs I really produced
You have worked with many singers, who is the best you have worked with?
I have worked with many artists but my best is Mudra. He is so hard working and a real friend and we have been together since way back.
Tell us the art of music production
It is simply wanting to know more.Doing a vibe expressing the feelings in one’s way. That is the art of music.
How are you handling the competition in the industry?
I am only handling the competition by doing my best. Creating new sounds and trying out many things. I am totally different. The reason I cant compete with anyone.
It is largely believed by producers and girls you are inseparable, how many girlfriends do you have?
Hahahah. This is a good question. But all I can say is that I deal with girls professionally. I have never mixed business with pleasure. I have no girlfriend but I am professional.
How do you handle Kla girls that throw themselves on you?
Well, Kampala girls are tricky. I give them a good vibe. I don’t give them personal time. I give it to the studio.
