Andre is in competing for the UMA vice presidency against Kalifah Aganaga and Hanson Baliruno while songbird Cinderella Sanyu aka Cindy, who has been  the UMA president after she took over following Ykee Benda’s resignation, wants to retain the position.

A songwriter, singer and producer, Andre, who is signed to Black Market Records, is a famous personality in Uganda’s music industry.

His career in music has seen him explore the whole nine yards beginning from songwriting, singing, to production.

He made sure to explore various genres since 2010 when he was thirty years old. 

He specializes in genres of Dancehall, RnB, Hip hop, and Afrobeat expanding his musical capacity.

After several years in the industry Andre decided to venture into production where he got to work with tens of other artists in his career.

Some of the songs he has produced include John Blaq’s ‘Sweet Love’, Sheebah Ft Runtown’s Weekend, and Bebe Cool’s ‘Easy’, among others.

Meanwhile, King Saha and Maurice Kirya are competing for the  position of UMA presidency with  intent to take over from Cindy, who was elected UMA president in March 2021 after  Wycliffe Tugume aka Ykee Benda resigned.

It should be noted that Ykee Benda had also taken over from Sophie Gombya who resigned due to political reasons and alleged misappropriation of the Association’s funds. We have since established that  Andre picked his nomination forms from the UMA offices at the National Theatre in Kampala, today, after which the date for the elections set to be  held this month will be announced.
