Pulse Rewind: Buzz Teeniez Awards Resurface With Signature Elation From Teens

In my high school days, Buzz Magazine was the main means of entertainment for us, and the Buzz ambassador always chewed all the props for being the plug who brought new issues of the magazine. The Buzz Leavers’ Rock was that prom we looked forward to because it had less rules than the school version, and the Buzz Teeniez Awards were our own version of BET. See, any artist who won a Buzz accolade was automatically our new hero.

Saturday 7th December saw 2019’s edition of the Buzz Teeniez Awards happen at the MTN Warehouse amidst the youthful exuberance, and boujee fashion by the teens in attendance was unwavering and heartwarming; just like it has always been at all the previous episodes over the years.

 

Good music from the best deejays in town, and ecstatic vibes from the best hype-men around, set the pace for great performances and award acceptances.

This year’s Buzz Awards blessed new entrants in the music industry with the recognition they deserve, with John Blaq and Daddy Andre all scooping accolades. Big Tril also got one for his hit single “Parte after parte” as song of the year, and his mentor GNL Zamba, who is currently based in the US, was in attendance for the teens‘ pleasure.

 

You can listen to tracks by winners on Tidal, by capitalizing on the subsidized Pulse Tidal bundles, that are in all offerings; as regards to validity. Simply dial *157# and enjoy.

Top 10 Ugandan Songs on Tidal This Week

If there’s one fact about Ugandans, it is that they love good music, regardless of what genre it is, and where it comes from. Many songs from other East African countries, South and West Africa, Hollywood and other parts of the world have been riddled all over Tidal’s Top 100 Songs in Uganda playlist, but with this write-up, I bring to you the Top 10 Ugandan songs on that very list this week:

Wire Wire – Bebe Cool
After roughly four months of rising steadily through the chart after its release, Bebe Cool’s hit single “Wire Wire” is finally the number one Ugandan song on Tidal. Big Size rekindled memories of the style Ugandans once adored him for, and he got worthily rewarded for it.

Boom party – Cindy Sanyu
Cinderella Sanyu is one Ugandan musician whose music is simply timeless. One Cindy song will play continuously in all Kampala hangouts for years, without party people getting fed up of it, and that’s why she christened herself “King Cindy”. With “Boom Party”, Uganda’s dancehall legend blessed us with yet another club banger and it is still blazing as new, 4 months later.

Maama Bulamu – John Blaq
John Blaq was criticized a lot by self-professed critics for his unique vocals and musical execution, ever since he released his breakthrough hit “Tukwatagane”. Many argued that his success would be short-lived, but the newest export from Busoga has made them choke on their negative energy with hit after hit. Maama Bulamu is a piece which shows lyrical maturity, and proves that Mr. Kasadha will keep soaring higher.

Parte after parte – Big Tril
An idea sampled from Pastor Sempa’s infamous interview with NBS TV’s Simon Kaggwa Njala, “Parte after parte” quickly became a hit in both up and downtown Uganda due to a combination of its local and catchy chorus, and bougie English verses. Its success though, wouldn’t stop at that, and Big Tril’s single became an anthem, topping charts in Kenya and Nigeria, and getting vibed to by African stars like Don Jazzy, Wiz Kid, Olamide, YCee, Davido and many more.

Sikikukweka – Daddy Andre
According to those that know him, Daddy Andre is probably a much better singer than he even is a producer(and he has produced many hit songs in the recent past). The “You and Me” singer dropped “Sikikukweka” to show that he is now serious about the singing bit of music, just like he is with production. The song oozes with musical appeal.

Sunday – DJ Slick Stuart, DJ Roja, Allan Toniks
The Slick Stuart & Roja duo are arguably what we have closest to what we can call our version of DJ Khaled. They have made hits with various singers like King Saha, Rema Namakula and Beenie Gunter and “Sunday” was more of a homecoming for Allan Toniks, who was trying to revive his hibernated career.

Sweet Sensation – Sheebah Karungi, Orezi
Collabos between Ugandans and West African stars rarely yield any returns to be happy about, but this piece between Queen Sheebah and Nigeria’s Orezi has proved otherwise. It is a hit!

Omusheshe – Spice Diana, Ray G
Spice Diana’s management is by far the most strategic after Sheebah’s in the Ugandan music industry. From being busy with multiple shows all over the week to being on replay in all local hangouts, Spice Diana’s place in the industry is secured. One of the many sharp moves by her management, was to do a collabo with little-known(in Kampala) Western Uganda sensation, Ray G, which has made her a household name in more parts of the country than ever before.

Tunyumirwe – Rickaman Manrick
From “Naki Naki” to “Bango” and now “Tunyumirwe”, Sweden-based Ugandan dancehall star Rickman has mastered the art of releasing club anthems.

Ebintu byo – Ykee Benda, John Blaq

John Blaq has always enjoyed high places on these lists, and this entry too is more of an obvious expectation than it is a shocker.

PICTORIAL: WizKid Leaves Ugandans At Kololo Airstrip Craving For More Afro Beats

When he missed his flight on Wednesday and consequently couldn’t make it for his meet-and-greet, many concluded that WizKid was going to do again what he did in 2017: missing a show people had paid handsomely for. However, the Nigerian Afro Beats star touched down Entebbe airport a few hours before his show, and even though naysayers had speculated the concert to be a flop, Kololo Airstrip was filled to the brim and party people enjoyed some great Naija vibes. These are some photos from the Dirty December concert that was organised by East Meets West Ug, Kasana Events, Muchachos, Nexus Events and Pepsi Uganda :
