A Pass real names Alexander Bagonza broke into the Ugandan music scene with the song “You Donno me’ which caused a lot of debate that time because many people thought he was either Nigerian or Jamaican.
However, the 25-year old multi-talented star had his breakthrough last year after the successful release of songs like ‘Sin City’, ‘Run Away’, ‘Love infection’, ‘Lay Law’, ‘Tuliku
Bigere’ ,’Tetubatya’ and ‘Am loving’ done under Buddies production. Chano8 had a chat with him about many interesting issues and his plans for the future.
My journey has been exciting, tough and a lot of work. I am always in the studio. I try not to get comfortable and believe I can never have enough songs. I am always constantly thinking of what the fans what.
The journey has been driven by my hunger to please my fans through my songs. Most of my work was done in 2013 and the fans love it now, am humbled my fans receive me with open arms. My work schedule hasn’t changed much, it is pretty much the same.
I make sure, am there for meetings and in studio when I should. Now I add stuff like video shoots till late (laughs), photo shoots and at performances which I am getting the hang of. At the end of the day it all revolves around music and there isn’t enough time in a day.
I love to write music, every free minute I get, I scribble down something. Sometimes someone calls and wants a song so you have to understand the person you’re writing for so as to find the song that fits them. When it comes to collaborations, I put that on hold for now I believe I have done quite enough. I have songs with artists like Don MC and Cindy, Lilian Mbabazi, Ekky, Radio and weasel, Code, Bebe Cool, Mun G and Patrobas all in a space of less than seven months.
It is hard performing collabos on stage due to different schedules. Well, I prefer to make music with an artist I also appreciate and we compliment each other. The artiste has to be good and can hold their own.
