Sama Sojah, who is now managed by Jeff Kiwa, is looking forward to letting his hard work speak for itself this year.
Breaking onto the active music scene around the same time that Mowzey Radio vanished has made it difficult for Sama Sojah, real name Ivan Tony Kizito, to establish a reputable brand, especially given how much he sounds like the late Goodlyfe singer.
The similarities have also thrown a slew of critics his way. However, with several poking holes in the authenticity of his music based on his friendship with Radio’s ex-manager Chagga Geoffrey.
Sama has slowly but steadily proven his critics wrong through his music. With songs like Nnyonyi Nyange, Akaama, Akadde, Esuubi, and Kikondoolo, among others, he has amassed a fan base of local music fans.
This year, he hopes to solidify his place in the music industry. This has welcomed a slew of new artists in the same musical genre as Sama.
The RedZone Music and TNS singer is confident that the studio hours he has put in over the last two years will propel his brand to the top of the charts.
During an interview with Galaxy FM’s Victor Yo, Sama revealed that he is excited to begin his career in music this year.
“Throughout the lockdown, I kept on practicing, rehearsing, recording new work, and writing new songs evidenced by the the release of my latest EP ‘Counting My Blessings’ which features five super tracks. Any positive thinking artist doesn’t stop being a musician just because paid gigs are scarce. The music industry needs our content. It is now time to showcase what I’ve been putting together during the lockdown. It is going to be electrifying!” Sama Sojah
His latest single, ‘Nterekera,’ is doing well locally, and the self-proclaimed “Lyrical Senator” has a point to make.
