Lwanga has done emceeing and marketing for clubs such as Sway, Blu Haze, Rouge, 9 Degrees and Cyclone. With his big brother Mc Kats as a person to look up to, he is taking this emceeing thing serious.

So who inspired you to become an emcee?
People who were in the game before me like Uncle Mitch, my brother Mc Kats, Esco, Mr Mosh and JKazoora.

What type of functions are you comfortable doing?
I can do any function but I’m well suited for concerts, weddings and birthdays.

What challenges do you face while doing this kind of job?
My main challenge is doing gigs for crowds that don’t understand English yet I’m not a Luganda speaking emcee. The other challenge is not getting paid after handling a gig, which happens a lot.

How much do you charge to host a gig?
I’m not expensive. I only ask Shs300,000 per gig.

Who do you look up to in this field?
There are many people, but my favourite ones are Mc Kats, Dave Dash, Mc Percy, Mosh, McKkenzie and Salvado.
How have you benefited from being an emcee?
Emceeing has helped me boost my confidence. I earn out of it and I have been able to make connections and I have bought two plots of land.

Like which connections?
I have connected with artistes like Mr G, Konshens, Shaggy, P-Square, Sisqo, Burna Boy, all Ugandan artistes and I know events promoters like Chin of Cece Entertainment, Balaam and Bobkins among others.

What shows have you worked on so far?
Kenzo’s album launches, opening of clubs like Cyclone, the recent Miss University beauty pageant, Mun G’s  album launch, Kadanke Awards, KCCA Carnival, Davido Concert, Pepsi events and I will also host the all white boat cruise.

What are some of the qualities of a good emcee according to you?
God-fearing, good articulation, confidence and entertaining.

For how long have you been doing this?
It’s two years now.

In case I want to contact you for a gig, where can I find you?
