What a job I have been doing. Today it was registering the songs through Copyright system and what a job! Finally everything is done. Then I went on the submission system for my album there was a lot of job to be done there. Artwork which was not approved I had to call my photographer Dag Langø to adjust the photo. I must admit that I feel so blessed this time people I work with are so cooperative and effective. It helped me to achieve a lot in a very short matter of time compared to over 10 years I used to get this album ready ;)
Finally this album is going to be into your music system on saturday 15th June. Make sure you play my song so loud like one of my girl Nelly. She was rocking Amka Afrika into her car in full blast. That was too heavy sound for the girl and she was so happy! She made me happy too and she left my porch by saying now I know what to play! That is like a great free commercial. Honestly nothing impresses me than reaching the people directly. I love when fans themselves feel free to tune into my music by their own will. Not like being forced by by radio station to play same song over and over again. You know those kind of channels whenever you turn on the radio is the same song. You turn off and turn on again the same song is still continuing! Its not coincidence but this practice can continue the entire week even month. I just have to admit I do love internet and this has been a bless to all of us so called "Underground artists" Internet has been doing wonderful great-full things into my music ever since I started using it!
I have to say thank you so much to all people who have been writing about me and my music. I wish to mention but mostly special thanks to PROMOTA magazine UK, PRIME AFRICA MAGAZINE South Africa, GUARDIAN- UK, through Ms.Sarah Young, Nynorsk Musikk-Norway, Jestina George, DjChoka, BongoUnlock, BYAVISA-Trondheim and probably many others who wrote about me. I am thankful for your continous support! For two days ago my fellow artist on Twitter wrote that there are artists who contribute into East Africa Music they should be heard and that post that day increased number of listeners on my soundcloud player! I was so impressed by someone to write about another artist. It felt wonderful to be remembered. Thank you so much Webiro N.Wassira and his crew. I will represent them later about their music here. I had also discovered new talent that day! I wish to have them here too on this blog! I love twitter. I miss Myspace. Myspace truly made artist get a lot of recognition. I met a lot of great wonderful top artists who become friends for now over 9 years almost :) It was amazing to see them growing to Glow Higher Musically! I wish these other social media can be the same as Myspace! But Twitter tries for real :) Only awkward moment is when you don`t know what to tweet!
This album will be available on almost all digital distribution. Just go to iTunes, Amazon, Cdbaby, Emusic and more :) The album is in Swahili and English language but also Karamajong a language from North of Uganda in one of the Swahili song (Sioni Wala Siambiwi)
When I was 15 years old on 15th january I received this recorder to save all my composition. When I forgot the lyrics of the songs I use to be little bit depressed. This was the greatest solution ever to solve my problems. I will never forget that day I got an interview with Voice Of America!
I look so forward to the more interview. So if you are for the magazine, radio station, blog, a neighbour whatever it maybe. not the last one neighbours are always the first to get almost all news but do not hesitate to contact me through: firstname.lastname@example.org
