I do not think hits, I think good music – Pia Pounds

Since her breakthrough, Tracy Kirabo, aka Pia Pounds has expanded her craft from singing to songwriting and acting. And now with a Netflix feature song and some more hits to her name, Pia Pounds ranks herself atop Uganda’s music radar.

In 2018, pictures emerged on social media of you holding papers standing alongside Eddy Kenzo. Were you really ever signed to Big Talent?

I was signed to Big Talent Entertainment on January 11, 2018. It was a life-changing experience that opened many doors for my career but a year after that signing, I decided to exit the label on friendly terms.

But when you left, Eddy Kenzo said you were never signed to Big Talent.

Hahaha that was a big joke. That is all I can say.

How did you get to work under Big Talent in the first place?

I was a recording artiste and often frequented the label’s studio. One day Eddy Kenzo walked into one of my sessions and was impressed with my work, so he offered to help. Next thing I knew, I was one of them.

Before Big Talent, where were you?

I was at school pursuing a degree in Business Management at the International University of East Africa but I had been into music since I was 14 years old.

In 2021, you announced that you were looking for a manager. How did that go?

Successfuly. I found a promotions manager who is extremely passionate and daring about my music, countrywide performances and international visibility.

What were you looking for in a manager?

I was looking for someone with passion in our industry because skills alone are not enough.
