Who is Joshua Baraka?
Joshua Baraka is a multifaceted artist known for his work as a songwriter, producer, instrumentalist, and musician. His upbringing took place in Kazo, within the Kawempe division of Kampala. Choosing to perform in English, Baraka distinguished himself in a musical landscape he felt was saturated with Luganda-speaking artists.

His academic journey included studying a combination of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology (PCB) at A-Level in Mengo Senior Secondary School, where he also discovered a passion for music production. Despite this growing interest, his academic performance suffered as he increasingly took on piano gigs, leading to a decline in his school attendance and grades.

Baraka’s educational path also included attending Makerere College School for O-Level and Kitante Primary School in his earlier years. Post-A-Level, he explored careers in nursing and architecture but found neither to be a good fit. Initially hesitant to perform on stage, he was persuaded by a friend in 2020 to accept a gig performing at a wedding. This event, where he earned Shs800,000 for three songs, convinced him to forgo traditional education in favor of pursuing music full-time.
