The mention of his name elicits a mention of Kadongo Kamu music genre, the local ‘one-beat’ music version of the popular country music. Lord Fred Sebatta is one of the surviving icons of Kadongo Kamu but even as the genre weakens both in content and listenership the musical lord is still going strong.

He is a celebrity in a world where big cars and houses are nothing to floss about but where music is meant to cause social change. His is a humble world just like his beginnings as an artiste.

Before Sebatta took the bold step to record his first album, which he titled Sam Wange in 1981, he was a music fan just like you and me.

Come and see him performing LIVE on 5th May at Kampala Serena Hotel.
