Some people thought that it was the end of their music career when they changed their name from Da Twins to Ganda Boys but little did they know that it was actually a strategic plan for them to change their style of music and sell the country more.
And five years after this transition, the duo consisting Denis Mugagga and Dan Sewagudde who were later joined by music and film producer Craig Pruess have started harvesting what they sewed.
The group who were busy working on different projects to raise awareness for the ‘Forgotten’ and the ‘Voiceless’ with the aim to raise funds towards the refugee programs in Education Awareness, Health and Social Welfare in different parts of the world were invited to the United Nations headquarters, New York City to present findings of their project.
They gave speeches and discussed the way forward and also performed for the delegates who included permanent ambassador of Uganda to the United Nations, HE Richard Luhuura, and members of the UN High Commissioner of Refuges among others which was impressive and brought smiles, joy and hope for a better world.
The performance was aimed at raising money for refugees and a reception organized by the United African Congress for their social and humanitarian contribution to the world. The artistes then performed at the prestigious Lincoln Centre at the IMA’s Party along with artists like Jonath Smith, Seth Glier and Sofia Rei among others on Saturday before wrapping it up at the Healing and Reconciliation concert in Washington DC on Sunday.
The project which started Uganda, saw the artistes visiting Nyumanzi Refugee Settlement Camp in Adjumani District where they delivered essential supplies and captured heartfelt stories via documentaries in August this year and they will be visiting other African countries as well.
