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.
