Biography

TRUTH's musical style combines the powerful lyrical nature of international hiphop with the wild abandon of African beats. Mister Deejay at Radiocity 97FM (Kampala, Uganda) writes that his is "optimistic about his future in the music industry. One to watch methinks." His peers are quick to agree. Saint Nelly Sade of Luga Flow Army says, "I like the flow and delivery. This boy is promising."

 

TRUTH started writing rhymes when he was 12-years-old. Raised by his mom in Western Uganda, he dreamed of becoming like the American rap artists he saw on television. The first song off his upcoming mixtape, 'So Firm', narrates the difficulty in overcoming the obstacles of friends and family who would not support him as a teen. 

 

In July 2013, TRUTH auditioned for a talent search sponsored by NTV Uganda and was picked by Celebrity Judges Bebe Cool and Jackie Chandiru to represent his hometown. A fan favorite throughout the season, TRUTH was selected as a winner of Talent XP in December 2013. Isaiah Katumwa, a local jazz legend, became a mentor for the young star during that time and asked TRUTH to join the Talanta Band for a tour that wrapped in August 2015. He now records and tours as a solo artist.
