Ziza Bafana started off in the local music industry three years ago. He has several songs to his name, including Jay Ntekeyo, Namagalo, Tebakulimba. The dreadlocked musician opened up to New Vision’s Glorias Musiime about his love and music.
I must say, your music is good but many people think it’s kind of explicit.
Let me tell you now. . . Ugandans, we do not know good music and that is why we shall remain behind. I know my music is even abroad [sic] so I do not care what Ugandans say, as long as others understand it.
Who is your song writer?
Unfortunately, no songwriter in Uganda can write for me because they can never understand my music. It’s just crazy. That’s why I write for myself because I know what supporters want. You know, we are in dot com era.
Do you really think the audience loves your music?
They must listen to it until they love it because I know it’s not yet time for them to know what is good and what is bad. I believe they will love it.
It’s good you trust they will love it. Urm, speaking of love, what’s your love life like?
I am not married, but I have girlfriends and lovers.
Wow! How do you juggle them?
I do manage them well and they know each other because sometimes, they come to my house. I stay in a big house and they do not fight. You find like five girls all in my house in the night and in the morning.
Eeeh! How do you do it, do you sleep with them all?
No, during such circumstances when they are all around, I do not sleep with any of them. Of course some beg for sex, but I decline, otherwise if I did, a brawl would ensue.
How often do you have sex?
Every after three months and if I want sex, I call someone, just for sex and fun. I cannot have sex with a woman three times. Most of the girls I know have their men but they cannot refuse me because of celebrity status. Even if I call her at 3am and she is sleeping with her man, she must come to me.
What challenges have you faced so far in the music industry?
Women want date me, some send me naked pictures on WhatsApp and on Facebook but I show them I am not interested.
When were you last in a serious relationship?
Last year. I had a girlfriend for three years and I had enough sex, now I have no stamina. So I get it only when I want, not all the time. Besides, girls are many and I can’t fail to get one for sex. Do you know they even plead to spend time with me?
Why do you think you cannot settle with one woman?
There is nothing much I want from them apart from sex. My girlfriend had what they have. As a matter of fact, it will take me time [to settle into a relationship].
Have you ever thought of the consequences of having many girlfriends?
I tell you, I survive by God but good enough, if I get infected then I know where I got it from because I can’t be careless to sleep with them without a condom. Yes, with some I do use a condom, and with others I do not.
Can you now enjoy sex since you stay long [three months] without it?
So much! I enjoy it since I spend some time without. This gives me too much appetite and when I get it, I get crazy!
