Artist: UG Star
UgStar is my stage name. I'm part of a music group based in london
called Fresh Hype but I'm mainly a solo artist at the same time. I'm
23 years of age and I've been involved in rap music for years on and
off. I've worked with top producers Marc Styles, J Platnum, Herry
Princeley amongst others.
Uganda is my native country, of which I lived for 12years and moved
to london where i spent 11years. I have various influences and
sources of inspiration, from soul music to R & B, Reggae, HipHop and
Afro music so I cant really name all my favourite artists or most
inspirational songs. I'm inspired by life events, insights, emotions,
and in terms of writing a song i write according to the moment and
rhythm, beat, or topic.
UgStar is a name I derived from a passion I have for Ugandan music.
I love listening to ug songs of all genres. So the love I have for UG
music made me want to shine bright amongst other stars, its the
reason for the name UgStar. It stands for those artists who are
working to better others through their music, its what i stand for.
I want people to love my music and appreciate my art, my lyrical
content and charm. And they love it. I get alot of love from people
who hear my songs, because the content is on a next level.
I'm trying to take the lugaflow genre from the backseat where its at
now to a higher level where younger and older people respect the
lugaflow art and artists.
