Who is 3NOVA?
3 NOVA is 3 all male group based in UK, who currently specialise in genres such an afro-beat, afro pop, dancehall and afro tropic. Their creativity and diversity creates a differeciation of the music they produce while entertaining and promoting their culture
Artist Name: Paul Waga
Born in Uganda and came to UK as a child. He started doing music back in Uganda in his former primary school called Namilyango Boys School where he took part in music, dance and drama classes later on joined the school choir at that time in 2008. The artist at that time that inspired him was Akon which gave him an idea of how he could turn his singing skill and creating his own unique style into reality. This didn't stop him from trying new ideas, styles, harmonies and later on melodies. Meeting 3NOVA made me realise that I have potential and alot to offer while promoting my culture and the diversity of music
Artist Name: Long Matt
Born in the UK, as a child, he grew up listening Chris Brown and R Kelly music which he sang along while doing chores or on his way from school. His mum inspired him and complimented his voice which uplifted him. He didn't have an idea of how to use his talent because of the environment and new music popping every other day. The reason he actively got into music was through a friend called Henry who always invited him to different studio sessions after noticing that he was talented. It's from these bookings that he met these two artists who were eager to hear what he had to offer and the kind of music he does. After a while they got him fueled and came up with a verse and its from there that we made our first song *Ndowozako*.
Artist Name: Joe Gaya
He came to UK at the age of 8 and the musical side creeped in because his parents are musicians. Growing up around music at home and his parents allowing him to go for drama and theatre performances helped him realise as he grew up that he was better in music than in drama and performance. He has also done solo projects as well as collaborations including Zoom zoom, Tuli mu mood and Nzunilamu among others before the formation of 3 NOVA
How was 3 NOVA formed?
Joe Gaya had booked a studio session record his solo song but when he got there he found other artists who started interacting and he was happy to meet like minded Ugandan artist who are new in the industry and a certain energy which made them bond instantly. He sampled an instrumental for them and within no time, they put words together and came up with Ndowozako. The song made us realise that we could make many more projects as a team. In a span of one month we have managed to complete more than two projects, both with audios and videos.
