I love a big comeback story.
Especially if it involves Mesach Semakula, a man many people thought he is out of the 2007 music competition. You know, even one newspaper went as far as saying that Semakula had quit music to do merchandise business.
But Semakula returned from the US yesterday at 3 p.m. and the first word he told me was, “AM back and not just back but musically strong.”
You know, up to now it is only Semakula who is yet to release a song as far as the top artistes in the country are concerned. And with the Pam awards starting soon this month, we had predicted he was out.
But the 2005 Artiste of the Year has warned those who think he is out that he is back with a new album “full of hits.”
Semakula is expected to sample two of his new songs during Haruna Mubiru’s album launch tomorrow May 4 at Hotel Equatoria.
He said that after listening to everything other artistes have churned out this year, he prepared himself and now he is ready to rumble. Some of the songs were recorded in the US and some were done from his studio Khann Studios at Calendar Rest House in Makindye. Tim Kizito (USA) and Travis Kazibwe (UG) produced the songs.
He said his songs would hit the airwaves sooner than later.
Bebe Cool has Bafudde and Kiba Kibi; Chameleone has Tebaasiga Nsigo, Tingisha, and Sivio Ndivio; Bobi Wine has Kikomando and Kiwani and Ragga Dee is in the mix with Calypso and Naiga, so what has Semakula got to throw into the contest.
Watch the space!
