How long have you been into the music ministry
Roberts Uganda: For the past 5yrs
XtrmBasePro: Great. So what got you into music?
Roberts Uganda: Well music has been my passion and its my kind of language to express myself and speak to people. So in addition to it, serving the lord made it better for me.
XtrmBasePro: Okay. Thank you for your responses so far. What kind of singer would you classify yourself as?
Roberts Uganda: I am a contemporary artiste.
Roberts Uganda: Yes.
XtrmBasePro: So how would you describe your music making process? I meant how is the process of your songwriting down to recording and distribution like?
Roberts Uganda: Well, I do my own songwriting. It takes me like two days to finish up a song, then hit studio for its a long session. we can do all that is required for me to voice the song add all that is needed and leave the last bit of the mixing and final preparations to the producer. Distribution so far has not been something I can say I have a problem with it because for now I have just joined the mainstream scene and I was still concentrating more to doing good music. So far I don’t have any music out yet but after the pandemic issue, I’ll definitely put it out.
And how do you draw your inspiration?
Roberts Uganda: Life itself inspire me, people and their stories as well inspire me and what I personally go through generally as well inspire me
XtrmBasePro: Which artiste have help shaped your music over the years?
Roberts Uganda: The likes of Zabuli, Derign, John Kay and Johnmarie. I was in CAN YOU PRAISE talent search, they were our judges where I emerged a finalist.
XtrmBasePro: Awesome. Please tell us what the experience was like in the talent search?
Roberts Uganda: It was an awesome experience where I met a lot of people who with the same talent I had learnt a lot and it helped me to grow into an artiste I want to be.
XtrmBasePro: What made you to pursue a career in music?
Roberts Uganda: My love for music drove me into doing music.
XtrmBasePro: We pray this love last long
Roberts Uganda: It will definitely stay alive in me
XtrmBasePro: Do you play any musical instrument?
Roberts Uganda: I am learning on how to play them mostly my interest is in the keyboard and the guitar because I hate it when I say something and the other person plays something else. So it has pushed me learning on how to play them for I like being a perfectionist
XtrmBasePro: So for you,what is the process like? I mean the process of learning the guitar
Roberts Uganda: For me it’s not that much work. Daily, I spare two hours for my learning to see that I add on something to the skills I have
XtrmBasePro:Thank you for your responses so far. Now tell us about the song you’ll be putting out
Roberts Uganda: I am doing a song called nzize. It is in Luganda .In English, it means “I have come” which simply talks about everything that the Lord has seen me through in my life but still I stick on him for I know He’s everything in my life.
