Gospel singer Anette Mutyaba has bounced back with another project, Yesu Apewe Sifa, in which she ventures into as many musical styles as she possibly can.
She even undertakes to sing in Swahili, a language she is yet to grasp fully.

By Sebidde Kiryowa Gospel singer Anette Mutyaba has bounced back with another project, Yesu Apewe Sifa, in which she ventures into as many musical styles as she possibly can.
She even undertakes to sing in Swahili, a language she is yet to grasp fully.
“I wanted to go international. I realised that in Tanzania, they teach Swahili in schools and only rich parents who can afford international schools get their children to speak English,” Mutyaba says.
Mutyaba recently toured Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and Zimbabwe, where she ministered in churches.
The album was entirely written by Mutyaba and produced by Andrew Kaweesa at Pastor Okudi’s Music Dynasty in Kasubi. The title track is an uptempo danceable track done in Zouk style and sang in Swahili. In the title track, Mutyaba thanks Jesus for what he has done for her and says there is no one like him.
She continues the streak with Jina la Yesu, in which she talks about the power of the name of Jesus in making dreams come true. The song is basically in Luganda with a Swahili chorus. Mutyaba shows her versatility on the reggae infused Maama, an English and Luganda tribute to her mother. He’s Able, a praise song, is an Afrocentric treat that is a remix from Mutyaba’s first album while Emikwano, a mid-tempo Afrobeat song, extols the value of true friendship.
Love Song, an English ballad, is another praise song. One gets the feeling that Mutyaba could have done better on the song. Not only do the vocals sound out of sync, she also lacks the energy and passion to draw the listener.
The fact that Yesu Apewe Sifa is less of an artistic statement and less fulfiling than Mutyaba’s maiden album, All Things Are Possible: Byonna Biyinzika, does not mean Mutyaba is on her way out.
It is all part of the process of growing up as an artist.
