Gray Naava is a Ugandan artist signed to Fenon Records and one of the few Ugandans to have participated in the Tusker Project Fame competitions.
I had a one on one with the artist and the following is what transpired in our interview.
With R&B steadily becoming one of the sought after genres in the Ugandan music industry, one artist to watch out for is Grey Naava. After her first single “Aliba wani” received wide acclaim across the region, Naava’s management Fenon Records have decided to release the second song “Nteredde” off her upcoming album. The track is a love song that looks at long distance relationships and was produced by Michael Fingers, the same guy behind “Aliba wani” and several other hits from Fenon. Besides tackling love issues, “Nteredde” can as well play in clubs because it has a danceable touch that will get everyone on the dance floor.
First she was on Project Fame competing. Then she was not winning. Then she vanished. Then some chick calling herself Naava Grey appeared out of the blue with dope songs. Eh! It was the same Aisha Naava from TV! Carol Kasujja went and found the babe and they talked and talked. Here’s the interview . . .
