It’s easy to notice Elijah Kitaka’s humble personality through his music and his artistic abilities to transcend the expected are visible too.
Renown deejay DJ Aludah believes Kitaka fits the new crop of artists that Ugandans have found new love for.
“I love the art in the video, the instrumentation – it’s a sound that Ugandans are beginning to fall in love with,” says Aludah.
His comrade Selector Jay also agrees. “The music is Ugandan, continental, different and it’s definitely going to shock a lot of people,” he notes.
