He went on to disclose that the title ‘Yaka‘ was suggested by his brother Ibrahim, who is also a gospel singer. The song propelled Karo into the mainstream even before she officially owned it.

Upon its release in 2018, ‘Yaka’ soared to success, prompting Kasita to approach him again for more hit singles that solidified her brand in the showbiz world.

Cindy Sanyu, who had featured Kasita on the song ‘Mwoto‘ (also written by Mudra), praised him for his lyrical prowess, leading them to collaborate on the track ‘Boss.’ However, according to Mudra, Cindy, the proclaimed ‘Kingherself,’ didn’t put in significant effort to promote the song, resulting in its underperformance.

Mudra’s relationship with Karole Kasita was tumultuous, and he attributed the fallout to her former manager, Joram Lukisa, with whom he had a recent and bitter falling-out.

“He was misleading Kasita with his ghetto youth ways,” Mudra confidently noted.

“I was responsible for writing some of Kasita’s biggest songs, including ‘Mwoto,’ ‘Binyuma,’ ‘Yaka,’ ‘Baby Papa‘ with Daddy Andre, ‘Balance,’ among others, for which I was paid Ugx 500k each,” he disclosed.

However, the payment process from Kasita and her former manager, Joram Lukisa, was quite frustrating. Sometimes, the money would be delayed, other times paid in installments, and there were instances when she didn’t pay him at all.

Mudra even mentioned that Kasita refused to pay him for her collaboration with Fik Fameica titled ‘You,’ despite her claims of having done so.

Despite these challenges, Mudra remained loyal to Kasita. Swangz Avenue offered him Shs1 million to sell the song ‘Big Papa‘ when he was there to write for Vinka, but he turned down the offer, choosing instead to offer the song to Kasita for only 500k, which she paid him in installments of 300k and 200k.

Additionally, Mudra wrote ‘My Baibe’ for Vinka, which also turned out to be a great track.

Eventually, the frustrations of dealing with disrespectful musicians led Mudra to quit writing and shift his focus towards singing
