2021 has been a challenging year for many in the entertainment industry, especially with the various Covid restrictions put in place in the country. These young stars had a good year, and from the looks of it, they are set to rule 2022 in the music game.
Below is the list of the top five young Ugandan singers to look out for in the year 2022 that Matooke Republic has compiled for you.
Singer, Priscilla Zawedde alias Azawi is cementing her position as the queen of Ugandan Afrobeat and Reggae. She had a great 2021 where she made big moves releasing her well-received Album titled ‘African Music’. She has won most of the 2021 Uganda awards in different categories. If anything, 2022 is set to be the year Azawi really explodes.
Singer, Prosper Walusimbi better known as An Known gathered major attention with his love song ‘Radio Call.9’, which has had 1.2 million views in five months on YouTube.
With his sweet voice, the upcoming singer delivers his verses on RnB tracks.
His follow-up single ‘Tonelabira’ has equally been well received. Last month, he shot to fame rapidly because of his two songs and he is going to be getting bookings across the country and has already performed on club beats and most of the local tv shows.
