Norway-Based Ugandan Rapper AfriKane raises Uganda’s flag


By Enewsug Writer

As Uganda marks it’s 53rd independence,we would like to celebrate an artiste fresh on the scene who is representing Uganda and putting it on the map.AfriKane is a Ugandan rapper and songwriter living in Norway but in just one year of living there,he has managed to make such a big impact that he has been called upon by the organizers of the Oslo World Music Festival to sit on a panel of a seminar on hip hop and musical identity and culture where he is the only Up and Coming artist there while the other 4 artists include Stella Mwangi, Veteran and Grammy winner Don Martin among others…this is enough to show how talented our young AfriKane is to have no accolades to show yet but to be called to sit among great artists and share views. “Am humbled and honored to see my career move up steadily yet I just got unveiled 2weeks ago.I thank God,My growing fan base and my family. Special thanks also to Benon Mugumbya-Swangz Ave. in Uganda(he natured me as a young artist many years ago and it made me into the artist i am today), My promoter Mr.Mikael Musoke,Open expressions Crew (Oslo Norway) and lastly Eddy Kenzo for showing us fellow Ugandans that it is possible to shoot for the stars and be loved internationally l(it is after his win that I finally gave music a shot here). Am in studio right now working on my first single and I will raise the Ugandan flag as Bebe Cool and Kenzo did. For God and My Country.
