Uganda: Captain Dolla Unveils Emmese

Last Friday, all roads led to Club Rouge as revellers turned up to witness Captain Dolla launch his debut single, Emmese.

Much as his performance had been scheduled for midnight, the 19-year-old senior six vacist, hit the stage at almost 2am. Yet, not even his late performance could stop the crowd from enjoying the three-minute long-awaited moment. It was a worthwhile wait for the revellers.

They all couldn't help but shake to the hit that has held the entire city captive to its danceable beat and lyrics that many deem controversial. The singer was overwhelmed by all the support the song has been garnering.

"I came up with this song during one free styling session in the studio and little did I know it would be such a hit," he revealed.

Captain Dolla is already reaping from his music - he has landed some juicy deals with some of the leading companies.

"Dmark mobile is already using my song as a caller tune and I am yet to seal a deal with Club beer," he revealed.

Due to public demand, Captain Dolla is set to embark on an upcountry tour starting with Jinja town where he will be performing this Friday at Club Sombreros. The soft-spoken singer thanked Ugandans for supporting his music and promised to drop more hits. He is set to release his next hit Nyenya within a month.
