ChimpLyf: Who is Willy Mukabya?


Mukabya: I’m a Kadongo Kamu artiste. I come from Kabunyata village in Bulemezi. My parents are Jane Nabunya and Ezekiel Muwanga.


ChimpLyf: How far did you go in school?


Mukabya: I didn’t go far. I just went through primary school – at Buzibera Primary School. I ended in P.7 – that was in 1985 when the war started. I decided to shift to Kampala and forge life.


ChimpLyf: After your primary level, did you start singing immediately?

Mukabya: Yeah, I had a friend called Sejobe. He was a guitar singer. That’s how I picked interest.


Sejobe also had a group called Kawempe Golden Guitar Singers which I joined and started singing immediately!


I wrote two songs – Abantu balamu bayina fitina and Mbalu. After two years, l wrote Kayanda and that song made me popular.


I developed the courage to stand on my own.


So, I quit Kawempe Golden Guitar Singers and started my own group called Talent Production. That was in 1994.


ChimpLyf: How many albums do you have now?


Mukabya: I have over 20 albums.


ChimpLyf: What have you achieved from music?


Mukabya: Music has created me so many friends. I’m now popular and I also have an admirable family.


ChimpLyf: Married?


Mukabya: Yeah, I’m married to Catherine Namugumya.


ChimpLyf: How about the young girl you introduced recently?


Mukabya: It’s that one I’m talking about. Catherine is the wife I have now. I divorced the so-called “first lady” and sent her to the village. Catherine is not young and has never complained that am so old.


ChimpLyf: Among your songs, which one do you take pride in?


Mukabya: Akagali! That song was based on a true story!


ChimpLyf: What’s your social life like?
