I do not see music as a destination, but a journey – Jowy Landa


RISING STAR: Joan Namugerwa, commonly known as Jowy Landa, is the artiste behind songs such as Twafuna, Am Badder, Sugar Mama, Saba Saba, Nkulina and Akawoowo, among others. She has been doing music for five years and after a fruitful 2023, we featured her as one of the artistes to watch out for this year. Isaac Ssejjombwe sat down with her for a chat.



Your birth name is Joan Namugerwa. Where did the name Jowy Landa come from?
It is just a nickname that I was given because I was skinny and nyashless (to have a moderately sized bum).

Skinny and nyashless does not relate to your stage name. Does this mean when you gain weight you will have to change the name to something else?
My friends nicknamed me that and I loved it, I cannot change it because I have not found any problem with being Jowy Landa.

Was music all you ever wanted to do growing up?
From childhood, I had a passion for music and my family and friends used to tell me that I have a good voice but my dream was to be a model. I can says I had a liking for both, only that the music bit was identified by those around me.

When did you realise that music was your calling?
While at school, we had class and house competitions for Music, Dance and Drama and it was from then that people told me I was talented, so I chose music over my modelling dream. I found myself always at peace with music.
