When was the last time you heard Magic Washington on a song? Well he is back on the scene with a new song titled ‘Our Girls’ on which he features promising talent Sanga Moses.
David Ebangit, commonly known as Magic Washington is undoubtedly one of the most talented complete musicians in Uganda.
A producer, singer, song writer, and music manager has been a household name in the East African music industry for many years.
2018 however has not been the year he would describe as a good one because of the many events that almost ruined his career.
Good news is that he is up and working again. Washington hit studio again to work with Sanga Moses on a new inspirational and motivational song titled ‘Our Girls’.
The song advocates for girl child education and ending early childhood marriages. The message embedded in the lyrics wrapped around by his soft voice is one you will definitely love.
Sanga Moses on the other hand is a Ugandan artiste whose past life greatly inspired this song. His three sister were all victims of child marriages before their sixteenth birthday.
Since 2010, he has been focused on economically empowering marginalized parents particularly women by training them and helping them to launch clean energy micro-businesses in Uganda, converting locally sourced waste into clean cooking fuel (briquettes) and more recently energy saving cook stoves so that they have the income to send their children, most especially girls, to school.
Sanga has now decided to let his talent get fully involved as he makes songs that advocate for girl child education in order to be able to reach more people faster.
He hopes that parents around the world in places like India and Sub-Saharan Africa, where child marriages are still common, will be moved to keeping their daughters in School.
Sanga has won numerous awards and recognition for his works some of which include the following;
- 2014: Verizon Powering People Award (Winner)
- 2014: Named a Nation Geographic Emerging Explorer
