My songs to be heard internationally.

My music mentor is JOSE CHAMELEON great artist of Uganda. This is because this artist started music long time ago before even I was not yet born and have not given up in music, still he is going on up to now.

My biggest challenge in music is lack of money, in that without money I can not be able to push and market my songs, and through that it is so easily for me to lack airplay well.
