Posha is a beautiful, passionate and talented upcoming singer who loves what she does. She first gave a shot at music way back in 2007. She is back in the industry to resurrect her music talent.
With two songs already to her name, including Sure Win and Tell Me, Posha had a chat with us revealing so much about her personal life, background, and plans for her music career.
Who is Posha and what are your real names?
Posha is an all-around artist from Kampala, whose real name is Bonnie Tukundane.
Briefly take us through your childhood and education background.
Ah! I am the last born of a huge family from Mbarara. My entire high school life was in Mbarara and then I joined MUBS Nakawa for my university.
How did the name Posha come about?
The name Posha came from Karl Wolf’s song titled Carrera which was about a car – a Porsche Carrera – which I fell deep in love with.
I instantly named myself Carrera but later adopted Posha from Porsche because it was easy to pronounce and more beautiful.
Who influenced you to join the music industry?
I grew up in a very musical family. From my parents, down to my siblings. So it’s always been there in me to want to sing. But the definite pusher is my brother Remy, who happens to be a songwriter and an artist himself.
Do you play any musical instruments? If yes, name them?
Yeah, drums! Hahaha.
Which famous musicians do you admire and why?
I admire almost every musician out there because I get to learn a thing or two from all their creativity, zeal and art.
What are your fondest music memories?
In my early days, I used to get paid by my sister to sing for her before going to school. My favorite song as a young girl was Ngayewa by Lutchiana Mobutu. She would pay me Shs300 each time I sang it. I loved it. She’s my biggest fan!
Have you ever been in competitions before? Any prizes won?
Unfortunately, no! I was quite a shy girl.
How do you handle mistakes during a performance?
You just don’t think about it and keep going. Any mistake in art is design.
Do you get nervous before a performance or competition?
Naturally, yeah. But it’s that adrenaline rush that brings about the excitement.
How often and for how long do you practice?
As long as it takes to get it right.
How do you balance music and other obligations?
Everything has its own time. And one always finds a way to balance the most important things in life.
Besides music what other sectors are you attached too?
I am attached to the Leisure and Hospitality sector.
Who takes care of you affectionately?
Heheheheh, Aya! (Dodges the bullet)
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
I see myself in a more beautiful and better space than I am today. And of course, grinding coz the struggle is real.
