Blackman Uncle Rich

I'm someone who doesn't like to explain lyrics, only because my brain is stuck in transition between French and English in that every time I write anything in English, I try to watch out that it's not written in English French (writing an English phrase in French), if you see what I mean. And it arrives often to people with notions of several different languages.

I caught up with the ever Jolly Cleo at her work place and we both discussed a few things transpiring in her life.

Clever J

He's style is as aggressive as his video features, He has gone through the storms of tasks creating an identity after many fans and tabloids referred to his sound as similar to an artist that had used it for over  decade. But I guess at the end of the day what matters are whether the fans are digging it. He's not so synonymous with Uganda’s party scene so bumping into him on an average night but can be compared ...
