Ugandan artist Lydia Jazmine has crowned herself the queen of collaborations in Uganda. Speaking during a recent interview, Jazmine noted that several artists reach out to her on a daily basis seeking to have her on their songs; meaning they appreciate her value.
"I'm the queen of collabos and they know. They will appreciate me the more when I make a name outside Uganda. I'm really blessed because everybody I work with appreciates. Everybody wants to work with me because they know what I can do. When I jump on the song, I give it my all,” she said.
According to Jazmine, as long as she connects and vibes with an artist, there is no need for the artists to pay her for the collabo.
On why she does not have a lot of international collabos, Jazmine explained that she decided to build brand locally before venturing into the global scene. This appears to be working as she’s featured on two international collabos; ‘Julie’ with Bahai from Kenya and ‘Jowo’ alongside Nigeria’s Jinmi Abduls.
Lydia Jazmine made her musc debut in 2014 after collaborating with Rabadaba on 'You Know'. However, her breakthrough came in 2016 when she teamed up with Geosteady on 'Same Way'
