2018 has been labeled as a year of blessings in disguise as far as the Ugandan music industry is concerned though negatively being affected by the loss of one of the big guns, singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Mowzey Radio to mention but positively a new crop up of talented and promising female musicians have taken the lion’s share as far as winning revelers’ hearts.
As we eagerly wait for the Bebe Cool list of top performers, here is a list of top ten Ugandan female top guns in the music industry 2018 whose tremendous effort has enabled them paralyze partiers with some fantastic projects hence wrapping up the year in style.
Swangz Avenue’s Veronica Nakiyingi Luggya aka has been the biggest revelation of the year 2018 among the female musicians given her complex background as a dancer before becoming an artistes’ manager, little did she know that she could try another step in her career as a musician.
