Dancehall artist A Pass couldn’t be a happier person with three of his songs making it to the Queen of Katwe tracklist.
The singer shared the news by saying, ‘We are grateful to be part of this project in a major way and We Give Thanks. 3 songs are included on the soundtrack album. I am so humbled to be featured with all the other great artists.’
With Wuuyo, Kyempulila and Tulikubigere all featuring, the queen of Katwe director Mira Nair said, ‘I Love APASS’s Sound – a true original – We have many of his songs in @QueenOfKatwe.’
Alex Heffes had most of his songs featuring on the upcoming drama then followed by A Pass. Other songs include Skelewu by Davido, Mbilo mbilo by Eddy Kenzo, Juicy by Radio and Weasel and Back to life by Alicia Keys among others.
Queen of Katwe is about the life of Fiona Mutesi a Ugandan teenage girl who grew up on the streets of Katwe playing chess since her childhood and went on to win several championships around the world. It’s because of that foundation that she travelled and met prominent people like Gary Kasparov, the greatest chess player ever, Bill Gates, Bill Clinton among others.
