Gone are the days when gengetone music was dominated by Kenyan and Tanzanian musicians!!!
The latest trend in the music industry indicates that Ugandan artistes have since revolutionized the industry by venturing into gengetone music.
This has been evidenced in the new album that was released by Kenyan gengetone stars the Mbuzi Gang, which features several celebrated Ugandan artistes.
The Mbuzi Gang’s new album dubbed ‘The Three Wise Goats’, is an epic depiction of how Ugandan artistes had always missed out on thrilling their fans across East Africa by doing gengetone music.
The Ugandan artistes who have made history by dominating the biggest gengetone album in history include; Jose Chameleone, Nina Roz, John Black, Navio, Felista Di Supersta and Angella Katatumba.
Here are the songs these Ugandan artistes did with the Mbuzi Gang on their new album ‘The Three Wise Goats’;
