Ganda Boys to receive UN recognition

The ganda boys

It is on record that the Ganda Boys are on the list of Ugandans who have lived in the diaspora as musicians for many years.

The singing duo that went to the US about 15 years ago after leaving their home town, Lugazi have made the western country their home.

After working on different songs, they decided to take another step in 2012 where they rebranded their style of music and changed to soul music.

Formerly Da Twinz, the group consisted of Denis Mugagga and Dan Sewagudde. When they rebranded and got a new member, Craig Pruess, who is a music and film producer, the group renamed itself as Ganda Boys.

The Ganda Boys have this year been busy working on different projects to raise awareness for the forgotten and the voiceless.

Their aim was to raise funds towards the refugee programs in education awareness, health and social welfare in different parts of the world.

The project started in their own country of origin (Uganda) before they crossed to other countries. In August this year, the two brothers were at Nyumanzi Refugee Settlement Camp in Adjumani District, where they delivered essential supplies and captured heartfelt stories for a documentary before they flew back to the US.

As the saying goes “hard work pays”. The Ganda Boys’ hard work and contribution in the field of refugees and social activism, as Ambassadors for Charity, will tomorrow be recognised. This will take place in New York where it will be followed by a performance to raise money for refugees and a reception organised by the United African Congress for social and humanitarian contribution to the world.

After that they will also perform at the prestigious Lincoln Centre on November 12th at the IMA’s Party along with artists like Jonath Smith, Seth Glier and Sofia Rei amongst others. They will wrap it up with a performance at the Healing and Reconciliation concert in Washington DC on Sunday November 13.
