Born Jude Watsaba, I’m a Ugandan singer and rapper that describes his style as “The translation”, hence fusing the local language (Luganda) with English together. 2017 which was my mini breakthrough year on the Uganda scene saw me scoop a double nomination in the much celebrated Uganda Hip-hop Awards in the “Rookie of The Year” and “Song Of The Year” categories.
