Legion East is one in a million when it comes to music talent, because he is not only a singer but also a songwriter and motion graphics designer who is among the artistes that have revolutionised Uganda’s music industry.
Specialising in the genres of dancehall, RnB and Hip-Hop, Legion has released a number of other dope tracks besides ‘Mutima’, some of which include; ‘Mary Jane’, ‘Darling’, among others.
Real name Buyondo Samson, Legion East started professional singing in 2020 when he released his first audio on December 4th, 2020.
Having been a poet while still at high school, Legion says he was inspired discover and nurture his singing talent by fallen celebrated Goodlyfe singer Moses Sekibogo, who was popularly known as Mowzey Radio.
During his last year at campus when everything was falling apart for him because he was broke battling with retakes plus a huge tuition deficit, Legion one day skipped school and went to studio and that was when he recorded the ‘Mutima’ song, which has since become a favourite amongst several Ugandan uptown music lovers.
