Uganda: Chizzo Into Karaoke

REMEMBER Chizzo, the Ugandan artiste who spent most of his fruitful years trying to carve out a niche in the UK?

Well, ever since he returned to Kampala a few years ago, he anticipated that he was just going to hit the studio and deals would come his way.

He hit the studio, but the deals were hard to come by. From what we gather, that dream came to an end recently. Our moles have reliable established that Chizzo has now turned to business; albeit of a musical nature.

Chizzo is now hiring out karaoke machines to bars near his home in Naalya. We have reliable learnt that bars like Pa Lui Kudos and Daytona in Ntinda, Planet Sports in Naalya all host Chizzo Karaoke nights. Chizzo's girlfriend, Flavia Oketcho (Flirsh), is always seen supervising the "money" on such nights.

However, when Chizzo is not hawking his karaoke equipment, he spends time producing music for obscure artists in his home studio.
