Getting a breakthrough in Uganda’s music industry isn’t a task as easy as one may think. In fact, stars that we idolize now, like Maurice Kirya and Spice Diana, endured many years of practice and rejection up until they got the attention their handwork deserved. The story of Grenade is a really inspiring one indeed. From having trouble with school, to finally landing a collabo with Weasel, and now a hit song with Sheebah and John Blaq, titled “Replace me”.
Grenade, famous for his hip fashion style, disproved critics when he pulled off some impressive vocals on “Replace Me”, adorning the hook thus,
“Baby never replace me never replace me nawe eh/ Baby never replace me never replace me nawe…”
To which Queen Sheebah replies with re-assuring lines that she would go wherever he did.
It is very mind-blowing for a boy of barely 20, to be boasting of a hit song to his name in this industry with such cut-throat competition. The effort he puts into his work to see to it that he makes it to the goal he desires is extremely impressive. So dear pulsers, the goal is to never give up on your dreams.
