He started doing music in 2010 in a small studio in my home town Kireka Kampala just after my high school. I recorded about four singles collaborating on two of those with my fellow wanna-be artists. It didn’t go on for long or go far…but i did travel for my first gig upcountry the same year and I almost got a recording deal which never materialized.
In October 2011 i had to leave music alone and take-up the opportunity to study abroad on a scholarship in chemical Engineering. I did that course for four yrs and graduated with a first class, after which i came back to Uganda in September 2015 and devoted all my time to my music. All four years as i studied in Algeria, in most of my free time i concentrated on my writing skills and vocals.
In Early October i recorded my first single( BUDUMBU a raga /dance-hall song) with producer ANDYMUSIC at BUDDIES RECORDS. I shot its video with GRATE MAKE FILMS UG. The song dint do so well because i didn’t have at-most promotion or management for that matter.In November 2015, i went to BADI MUSIC STUDIOS and recorded 3 other singles with their in-house producer NESSIM PAN PRODUCTION. That was;
This label was very impressed with my versatility and difference in sound to what was already available in the market.
By 1st January 2016, i had gotten a recording deal for 3years with the same label BADI MUSIC. Farma and Munakampala videos were shot through early 2016. This is when all the media houses started noticing him.
In September 2016, He decided to do a remix of my FARMA song with TNS’s SHEEBAH KARUNGI who happens to be the biggest female artist in the country by 2016. This remix went viral in the whole of Uganda and East Africa and i can proudly say was my break through song. It hit the nation on audio for about three months on number one on most charts and when we shot the video, it traveled all through neighboring countries. Thats when The whole country noticed my other singles like Munakampala, Eva, Which are hitting to date all into 2017.To date i have been credited as the best break through artist of 2016 and some local music critics term me as the future of Ugandan music. Ykee is a raga reggae pop RnB afro-beat artist. As versatile as an African artist can be, i write and produce all my sounds now.I want and like to entertain and be comic in my lyrical content using stuff that relates to the normal struggling, successful or middle class humans around the world. I want sing and change lives, inspire young ones that dream of being like me and to do my best to support the full of potential local artists. In about 4years if u ask me, He will be the brightest thing about African music to uts people and the West.
He sings in about 4 to 5 languages.English, Luganda (local language), French, Swahili and Kinyarwanda.
