Ugandan President may release rap album

 

President Yoweri Museveni says he may release an album after a rap he performed became a smash hit on Uganda’s radio stations and in its nightclubs, Reuters reports.

“I was very happy with the reaction of the youth because that means they are very thirsty for the music of their ancestors,’’ the 67-year-old told a news conference before elections on Friday.

“So after the election you may get quite a big album of the classics,’’ he said.

The leader, nicknamed “M7”, performed two children’s folk chants from his birthplace in Western Uganda at several election rallies over the last few months.

Record producers then mixed the performances with hip-hop beats and audio of Museveni talking to the crowd about a genre of music.

“Those poems which I gave to the youth are classical poems which were being recited before colonialism.

“There are quite a number of other songs and recitals which I will make available to them,’’ Museveni told reporters.
