Chagga is popularly recalled among the flock of musicians who took over the music scene in the early 2000s with songs such as; Jangu eno Maama, Missing My Baby, Birungi Omutima gwange, and many more. The big news is the legendary artist is back into music with a 10 track album dubbed “100% Chagga YO”
When asked why he chose to bounce back into music, Chagga real names Geoffrey Kyagambiddwa says his friends and fans pushed him to release the new album after he had taken a long music break.
“They wanted my voice back in the game for me to sing. It all started from the UG Connect show on TV. Many people were surprised and asked me to stop focusing on other artists and work on some music because my voice is still good,” Chagga said during a recent interview
Chagga released the album a fortnight ago during a press conference at Pearl of Africa Hotel, Kampala. Look at the track list below:
- Oli Muwanguzi
- Ndagire ft. Weasel
- Owange Yani
- Kwata Woyagala
- Nalumansi Naawe ft. Pallaso
- Cheri ft. Sama Sojah
- Tukwatagame (bonus track)
In the past, Chagga served his spell as a back-up singer for Jose Chameleone, lending his smooth vocals to practically everything Chameleone recorded since he shot to stardom in his early days of music with the exception of Mama Mia.
Chagga and Chameleon were very close friends in that its Chameleone who named him Chagga Yo deriving the name from a line in his top selling 2002 single Beeyi Kali. During his time with Chameleone in Leon Island Music Empire, he dropped hit songs like Mutima Gwange, Jangu Eno Mama, Tobesiga and Yonno before he left the camp to Bobi Wine’s Firebase in 2007.
In 2018, after over 15 years of musical silence, the self-proclaimed ‘Big Papa’ resurfaced into active music with a gospel song ”Nsasira”. Currently, Chagga heads a live band group ‘Troops Band’ with fellow singer Henry Tigan.
