The Monitor (Kampala – Uganda Africa) Priscilla Kalibala might not be a name on your usual show line-up but she believes she has whatever it takes to take her to the top. The 23-year-old Priscilla, who is hardly two-years-old in the local music industry, has a nine-track album to show for her ambition. What’s more encouraging is that several songs off her debut album are already enjoying good airplay on the local radio stations.
She worked with the gifted hands of the Nairobi based Homeboyz, the Dream studios, Joe Tabula and Goodenuff’s Pato to produce her album, which is a blend of Afro- pop and Kwaito style tracks.
Her songs include the title track Lets Pray for Africa, Omukwano,
Dancing, Nkwagala Nyo, Perfect, Amaalo, Mwana Gwe, Gumikiriza and
She features dancer turned artiste Bella and Deejay Michael.
Priscilla says that she looks up to mellow-voiced star Mariam Ndagire
and the semblance of lyrical arrangement has something to prove this.
Priscilla reveals that having qualified with her degree in Business
administration from Makerere University, the jobs were not easy to come
by and she decided to utilise her talent for a while, till her rainy
days dawn to reap from her hard work at school.
