His block buster song ‘Mulirwana’announced his entry into the music scene in Uganda and presented him with his best year so far in the business. However, he actually has other very good songs that are also dominating air waves across the country like ‘Signal’, ‘Tonjiwa’, ‘Kampala Anthem, Vimba’ ft Gravity Omutujju, ‘Komawo’and ‘Onkubba’.

Saha says he doesn’t want to be a one-hit wonder like some artists who came so fast and disappeared in thin air and as a result has been working hard in studio churning new hits like ‘Gundezze’, ‘Tamale’ ft Pallaso and ‘Suzaana’.
