Ever since I released my town, I have never stayed the same. Even after risking millions of money on the video, it paid me back in some amazing way. Thanks be to God.

He considers ‘My Town’ the song that introduced him to mainstream media and earned him recognition, gaining massive airplay on different media stations and night clubs.

The song also opened doors for him as local TV stations started inviting him for interviews. He now sets his focus on what lays ahead in his career.

“Well, ‘My Town’ is one of my clean and amazing pieces that managed to put me on another level. My town has given me more connections in the industry. It has exposed me before the audience and I have come to realize the right audience for my music as an artist,” Legacy notes.

Legacy Ug wants to become one of the popular artistes that inspire so many people regardless of their backgrounds.

He also intends to set up a music recording studio that will see him facilitate the growth, exposure, and development of several rising artistes’ dreams.

I intend to set up a studio that will enable so many talented people out there who cannot manage to raise money for recording music.

I still intend to work with different artists as a way of pushing my career far. Signing willing artists will come in when, by God’s grace, I manage to set up a record label in the future.
