Music lovers embrace your selves for hair raising excitement as there is a new combination of rowdy trouble makers on the loose. Smooth flowing Afro-House and Afro- fusion singer EKKY and rugged multi talented new kid on the block A Pass da teacher have teamed up to cause double-trouble for their fans.
The two talented singers have finally nailed a naturally enthralling and captivating collaboration that oozes free flowing chemistry and attachment between the two quality parties. One may think they are Siamese twins born from the same womb.
Ekky who is working on her debute album “The African Love Story,” trades her craft mostly as an Afro house and Afro-soul fusion artiste but moved out of her comfort zone this time round to do a dance-hall tune and she did not disappoint. Her partner in crime A Pass (real names Alexander Bagonza), a richly, obscenely talented young artiste however is no stranger to such situations as he can comfortably adapt to any genre.
This particular project done at Buddies music by Nessim under Ekky’s management team called Konektor is an Afro dance-hall rhyme and A Pass who recently told Chano8 in an exclusive interview that he usually does free-style while making his music, employs a plucky sense of humour in his lyrics that makes the whole song sound conversational and the video intimate. He throws his verses with maximum ease.
And talking about videos, this home combination of gifted Ugandan directors Sasha Vybz (Savy Films) and Joshua Mwesigwa (Raising The Bar Production) is something we can all be proud of especially when the debate on quality (or luck of it) of Ugandan music visa vie Nigerian dominance is still raging on.
And the debate seems to have a positive impact as artistes, producers and video directors have all upped their game when it comes to quality and Trouble Maker is the closest manifestation. With many artistes going to Kenya, South Africa and West Africa for quality video production that can compete on the international scene, Trouble maker is a welcome breath of fresh air as it can comfortably raffle feathers at the top level anywhere in the world.
The directors have carefully chosen an old school setting (With the costumes that include chequered trousers with suspenders, ladies spotting massive Afros, little dresses and hot pants) for this modern tune and blended the bright colours perfectly against the luminous back lighting and a blend of grey shades.
Although the video ends with A Pass at his usual mischief best, the story-line is simple Old school club or disco setting. The simplicity is on point for we know less is more.
