Nigerian musician Rudeboy is to perform in Uganda in less than four months from now.
The ‘Reason with Me’ singer is to perform live at the Lugogo Cricket Oval on February 14.
“Uganda, it’s official! I will be performing live on the 14th of February 2020 (Valentine Day) at the Lugogo Oval Cricket Center Kampala,” the former member of the now-defunct P-Square tweeted.
Born Paul Okoye, King Rudy is one of the most respected and influential entertainers in Africa currently topping charts with his latest releases like ‘Reason with Me’, ‘Tonight’, ‘Together’ featuring Patoranking, ‘Somebody Baby’ and ‘Reality’, among others.
With a music career spanning over a decade, the 37-year-old has paved the way for a new generation of artists both as a part of music duo P-Square and as a solo act.
The talented songwriter continues to pen some of Africa’s greatest hits and catchy tunes.
King Rudy grew up in Nigeria and attended St. Murumba secondary school. It is from here that he nurtured his musical talent by joining the school music and drama club and began singing, dancing and mimicking songs by MC Hammer, Bobby Brown and Michael Jackson alongside his twin brother Peter. He would later join an acapella quartet and then form a group called “Smooth Criminals” in 1997. The group disbanded two years later to pave way for P-Square—which will be remembered as one of Africa’s first pop star groups.
