UGANDA: " Walk The Talk And Stop Masquerading.'' A Pass
14 June 2016
Dancehall artist Alexander Bagonza whose stage name is A Pass has gotten fed up of upcoming artists using his name as a way to build their careers instead of putting in the work like he did.
‘Don’t try to use A PASS’s name to sell your music or your artist please work like everybody else, go to radios and TV shows and tell people about yourself. That’s how it’s done, build your brand brick by brick because your words mean nothing if your music is not doing well,' he said.
The blooming artiste has worked tirelessly to get where he is at the moment. It’s with his almost zealous assiduousness and moxie that saw him push all boundaries that were placed on him.
A Pass believes in himself too much that he threatened at one point in his career to quit music if his Nva Kampala album wasn’t the best in Uganda and luckily for him it was well received by fans.
Last month, the singer also toyed with his fans’ emotions when he said he would retire from music because it’s time for him to be a legend,
‘I have worked hard to be where I am today and I have always been honest with my fans and supporters, adding, I have thought about this and decided to retire from making music because it’s time to be a Legend so let me make you some magic.’
but there is more to his statement than what meets the eye as A Pass is surely going to up his music game to sui generis heights and according to critics is on the right track.
‘Am not focused on what was, I am looking forward to what can be and no evil mission is going to alter the course of my History because I am protected by God,’ he said.
Truth Be told, he didnt get to where he is just by talking the talk, he walked the talk!
