Tarrus Riley being the guest artist at Swangz All Star Concert, he arrived in the country 3 days to the concert in a surprise move to shoot the music video of his song titled “Uganda”. Most people expected a collaboration with a Swangz signed artist given it is also a record label but that wasn’t so as Tarrus featured on the track alone.
The song has Tarrus put in a few lines in Luganda a language widely spoken in Uganda. He sings about Uganda while relating it to a very charming girl. The video was done mainly in Jinja at the Nile river and in a market place setting. The video also has some culture embedded in it with some glimpses of the kiganda traditional dance.
The audio was produced by Nessim and Video directed by Swangz Avenue’s Marvin Musoke.
Swangz Avenue’s music goddess Vero Luggya popularly known by her stage name Vinka, released the music video of her “Omukwano Gwo” song on Friday 7th.
In the song, Vinka expresses selfless love to her partner and assures him how they will love each other forever as she was quoted saying “Kwata bwo kwata wona ndi bwa kabaka bwo, And you know that I love you,
Ndi mukwano gwo”
Shot in Mombasa Kenya, the music video was directed by Aaronaire on Set,who is arguably one of the undisputed Video Directors Uganda is blessed with.
