We first met in 1998 at TYE Secondary School. He was our entertainment prefect and choir leader. I did not develop any feelings for him until 2002, when we met again while working for a band in Mbarara.

When did the two of you meet?
We first met in 1998 at TYE Secondary School. He was our entertainment prefect and choir leader. I did not develop any feelings for him until 2002, when we met again while working for a band in Mbarara.

Of all the men in the band, why did you fall for him?
We became close because we were former schoolmates and soon fell in love.

What do you love most about him?
He knows what love is.

And given a chance, what would you change about him?
I would make him talkative.
He is too quiet.

Was he your first cut?
By the time we started dating, I was not a virgin, but he is my first love and the only person I have ever fallen for.

How is he your first love if you did not lose your virginity to him? 
Losing virginity and falling in love are two different things.
I cannot talk much about that issue, but the truth is, he is the only man I have ever fallen for.

Don’t other men make passes at you?

That is the most annoying thing about men. They make passes at me, regardless of their age, education and financial status.

Does that mean the song Grade was conceived from a personal experience?

Yes it was. One day, on my way to Kakiika, a Mbarara suburb, I met a man wearing slippers, but he stopped me and asked me for love.

Aren’t you scared of beautiful girls who are always around your man?
They are not a threat because I trust my man.

But it was reported that you fell out with one of the female members of your band because you found her in bed with Rasta Chaz.
That was a lie. She left the band due to other reasons, but when I sang the song, Pen, which had a message about people who ‘steal’ their friends’ partners, people thought I was referring to her, which was not the case.

So, what if you found Chaz in bed with another woman?

I would forgive him If he apologised. Temptations always come.

Has he ever beaten you?
He has never raised a hand at me and I think he never will. If he did, I would first blame myself because I know he can only do that out of anger.

He is not my first cut but my first love
