With “normal” thrown out the window, we embraced the unknown and championed all of the things that make each of us unique. In 2021 Spotify marked its official entry into the Ugandan market. The music streaming giant unveiled ‘Wrapped’ it’s annual round-up of the top artists, albums, songs, and playlists of the year as streamed by users on the platform from around the world.
