Pia Pounds real name is Tracy Kirabo and was born February 29. She is a daughter of little known Joseph Musikaate and Jessica Lugonvu. her both parents have no music background. She is currently completing her Bachelor’s in Public Administration in Business Management studies at the International University of East Africa.
She says she has always loved singing all her life. Music has been her passion
“I have sung all my life since I was a little girl but I first took on the decision of being an artist in my senior four vac – at the age of 16. I was favoured that the first time I stepped into a studio a big artist (Ragga Dee) asked to feature in my song. After my vacation, I realized I had to get done with school before really devoting to music completely- after being sure school was almost over – I re-enrolled in a studio to record my album and that’s where luck found me” She revealed.
On meeting her new Boss Eddy Kenzo
Pia pounds reveals that she met Eddy Kenzo through her online businesses. She owns a men’s online store. Kenzo has been her client for some time. She dresses Kenzo each and every time.
However, she says, Eddy Kenzo chose her because of her good music struggle and her passion to sing
“Kenzo found me recording at Big Talent’s studio called Banq records with his house producer Kuseim.
Kenzo is a natural mentor, before I knew it, he was directing me and making a few changes in the song I was recording – after a few weeks, he sat me down and asked me “if being a star was my goal really” I told him yes – and a contract was signed last week. I guess that is what they call luck,” she narrates.
It is only business between me and Kenzo- Pia says
When she was asked her real intentions of joining Eddy Kenzo’s label, Pia clearly states it that it is only business between her and Eddy Kenzo’s label. She went on to trash allegations of Rema being so worried closeness to the Big Talent Boss.
“Rema is my mentor too and by the way, I look so much up to her – I feel so bad that the press and audience have chosen to twist this into some shady roll. Me and Mukulu Musuuza (Kenzo) have business and business only between us. No one should shade my name black by thinking otherwise.” She said
Pia pounds will be premiering her hit “Tubawe” today at club Guvnor.
