5 Top Trending Videos in Uganda
8 April 2020
The music industry in Uganda is very dynamic. Each day, we get to hear a new song and watch a video that is probably better than our previous favorite one.
The songs that usually make it to the top do not normally come from already established stars.
Ugandans do not care if you are a budding artiste, as long as your song is a danceable vibe or it is relatable to the situation at hand.
Since everyone is on lock down and not allowed to go clubing, we have rounded up the list of the top five songs that Ugandans are listening to and requesting for on both TV and radio stations.
1. Tweyagale – Eddy Kenzo
Despite being released over two months ago, this massive jam by Eddy Kenzo is still topping people's playlists. Just a little different from his usual beats, Tweyagale is a bit slow with a 'danceable vibe'.
In the song, Kenzo encourages everyone to have fun despite the challenges in life.
Most people love it because it is totally relatable. It was produced by A Steyn and video shot by Gryem Films International.
