Ugandan rapper Shafik Walukagga famously known by stage names, Fik Fameica was named among the “Ten African Music Stars to Look Out For in 2021” by the British Broadcasting Corporation.
In a publication dated Friday January 1, 2021, BBC took a look at who’s innovating in terms of style and sound, as well as who is exploring new genres, to come up with its list of who to watch out for and the ‘Buligita’ singer happens to be such a top notch.
According to BBC, Fik Fameica (Fresh Boy) is one of the most interesting rappers coming out of East Africa right now.
The rapper made his first appearance on the music scene in late 2017 with the single Kutama.
The 24-year-old steers away from typical mainstream Ugandan music and experiments with his sound that has been influenced by reggae.
Fik Fameica is breaking divisions and connecting with many young people through his music and has already scored collaborations with well-known artists from across Africa, including Patoranking, Vanessa Mdee and Joeboy.
He bosses as the only Ugandan on the list which includes other star-stubbed African names; Omah Lay, Elaine, Tems, KiDi, Sha Sha, Zuchu, Gaz Mawete, Soraia Ramos & Kabza De Small.
Congratulations Fik Fameica!
