From humble beginnings in Kigali and Kampala’s suburbs to the full glare of the stage, Lilian has mesmerised many an audience with her rich and powerful vocals. Citing the likes of Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston as her influence it’s no wonder that Lilian is emerging as one of the best female artists to ever come out of Uganda, and East Africa for that matter. LilianMbabazi is embarking on a new phase of her singing career as a solo artist having taken time off from the group Blu 3. To some this would be a daunting prospect but for Lilian this is something she has dreamed about since she was a little girl. “I always knew I would be a singer. I could never stop singing no matter what I was doing. In fact I think I almost drove my siblings crazy humming and singing all day long,” says Lilian. Her musical style is described as a cross between R & B/Soul tinged with African & Western musical influences. The various types of musical styles come across in the singles she has released so far, namely: Vitamin - a classic Ugandan style pop song featuring Weasel from the Goodlyfe Kawa - a bumping Ugandan dance/house track produced by Market Makers Kankutwale - a love song sung in Luganda YegweWeka - a return to her native roots of Rwanda featuring Kitoko So in love - a sultry classic R&B track with hints of jazz “The beauty about Lilian’s voice is that she can sing almost anything, whether it’s a ballad, a jazz standard, a pop song or a dance track. To have such vocal versatility is true talent,” says Onoh, Producer, Market Makers. This is truly reflected in Lilian’s passion for live performances which she relishes. Currently perfecting her live act with her band the Sundowners her love of music shines through in the choice of songs for her repertoire: Tina Turner, Erykah Badu, India Arie, Etta James, Adele, Bruno Mars and Bob Marley to name a few, whilst also performing her own songs and songs from the group Blu 3.
First things first, it’s “ThaDropout”, no DJ, Selector or any of that other stuff, just ThaDropout. Real name; Aijuka Duncan Ngabirano. I’m a music fiend, which goes without say, a music producer/DJ, born, bred and based in Uganda. I’ve performed at a number of the top spots in Kampala’s nightlife (Boda Boda, Mish Mash, FatBoyz, YOLO Lounge…to mention but a few) and still crossing more off the dynamic list. Widely known for my themed mixes like SOUNDS OF THE SOUTH (Kwaito/S.A. House), BEATS N SIXTEENS (Hiphop and R&B), JUMP N SHOUT (House/EDM), AFRO HIPPY (African Hiphop), AFRICAN PARTY (Afropop & African EDM), NOSTALGIA (Old Skool/Oldies…basically throwback) and many more. I’m musically elite (if there is such a thing) and anything but cliché so if you are tired of that seasonal monotony in the nightclub and radio playlists, I’m the guy to take care of you. I don’t dwell too much on how good people think I am but rather where I’ll be in times to come so this is where you should forget all my past achievements…#XTATIC [monthly mix collection] episodes coming soon plus there’s more to come. I'm also the official DJ for the Uganda Lyricist Lounge. Keep up with my activity (upcoming theme nights, events, media links, news and more) on Twitter (@ThaDropout) or Facebook (Duncan Ngabirano). For bookings, +256 791 102 225 or firstname.lastname@example.org (contact in advance). I’ll let my work speak for itself but remember, I’m anything but cliché. SUPPORT.

Batenga TheMyth likes to consider herself a global DJ. She has been a DJ since 2001, when she accidentally stumbled on decks and had to do a 15-minute crash course on site on how to work the decks at an event in Boston in the USA, what was supposed to be just dinner music turned into playing the whole event by herself, making all sorts of mistakes, but the floor was filled, much as she laughs about it today, that day was a situation of swimming out of the deep end, no better way to gain appreciation for the art than that! She was hooked there on out. Her Djaying has taken her across the United States to Europe, Nairobi, Kampala and Johannesburg. Two years ago she started Mixtape Volumes called Tropical African Heat, those have garnered her popularity amongst Africans in the Diaspora and have opened up more opportunities for her. DJaying to her is an art that constitutes good music selection, understanding your music, understanding your audience, knowing and understanding your craft and your gear and most importantly having FUN!
