ChimpLyfe: Who is Ziza Bafana?

Ziza Bafana:
I am an artist by profession. I am also a caring and social person.

ChimpLyfe: So why Ziza Bafana for your stage name?

Ziza Bafana: My real name is Kasendwa Richard. Ziza Bafana is a moniker I got from my ex girlfriend in South Africa. She nicknamed me Bafana because of the love we shared though we later separated.

ChimpLyfe: Where do you hail from?

Ziza Bafana: I come from Luvule village in Bukakata district. Born to Ronald Sseruwoza and Noerina Nansikombi. I left village when I was 9 years old after my father passed on. My aunt took me in and we moved to Kyebando in Kampala.

ChimpLyfe: Which schools did you attend?

Ziza Bafana:
I went to Bulenge Primary school and Kyebando Primary school for primary and then I joined St. Steven’s Kyebando for O level. I stopped in senior three.

ChimpLyfe: Did you join music immediately after school?

Ziza Bafana: No I did not join the music industry immediately. After school, I worked as a mechanic in a garage for some time. I later left the garage and went back to the village to do some farming. I later started playing the guitar in several churches in Masaka and then Kampala. This is where I fell in love with music and I stared writing songs. I wrote Cindy’s ‘Nkoye Obufumbo’ and my very first song ‘Abakazi Babatulugunya’.

Ziza Bafana:
I have like 10 songs out already which include ‘Tebakulimba’, ‘Namagalo’, ‘Jjayo Ntekeyo’ and several others.

ChimpLyfe: Rumor has it that you got misunderstandings with Yiya Moze. What really happened?

Ziza Bafana:
It’s actually a long story. Yiya Moze is a selfish person and I cannot even perform with him on the same stage because we have our differences. Even if he fights, I know that I am a better musician. I have even won an award, the Zina Ragga Dance hall.

ChimpLyfe: Amongst your songs, which one is your favorite?

Ziza Bafana:
I love ‘Jayo Ntekeyo’ because it became a big hit instantly and made me so popular.

Yes I do. I have written many songs for other artists like Cindy.
