The show named ‘Uganda Totally set free’ will take place on 24th April, 2016. The singer, who first sang gospel music at the same church before moving to secular music, will be performing Live.
The artist calls upon all Ugandans regardless of their religious faith to attend the concert.
“Uganda Totally Set Free happening on the 24th of April 2016 @Kansanga Miracle Centre, Kampala Uganda. Tell a friend to tell a friend to tell a friend and all be there. We are not ashamed of the gospel,” he said via his facebook page.
Who is Myco Chris?
According to Music Uganda, a local music website, Myco began singing 15 years ago at St. Paul’s Cathedral Namirembe at the age of 9. At the age of 13, he broke out of the choir into secular music, mainstream music under Shanks ViviDee. He joined a group called “Xtra Grim” which consisted of Chagga, Rutty Martin, Omwana Isaacs. Shanks was the overseer of the group what many would refer at as the manager. Shanks was also the lead role-model on music at that time.
At the age of 17, he started his solo-career. He hit Sabrina’s pub and won a contest thus the title Mr. Sabrina which he held for a year. After that, he went back to gospel music at Kansanga Miracle Centre. While there he formed a Boyz Gospel Crew which consisted of Luther T, Mathew Nabwiso, Paul Arshley, Kyobe Christopher just to mention a few.
When asked why the inconsistency in the genre of music he said, “Most of the friends had become like family. Most of them had left Sabrina and some come to UK and the few that were left were doing gospel i.e. Julian Ken Wonder had left Sabrinas, Chizzo and Kuklee went to the UK and Iryn had gone to France. That is I decided to go to Kansaga Miracle Centre”
In 2002 he left Uganda for UK to study Sound Engineering at West Minister, he then later started his own Record Label called The Myco Chris Records in 2006. He later got a deal with EMI, a writing deal. He joined LIC (Living In Christ) as a lead singer and song writer. In 2007 he left LIC and started producing music for underground kids in the UK.
In July 2008, he started working on his African project which included songs like Zino Enaku, Kabiite Wange and Maisha Milele. Right now he in the final stages of his international album, once he is done, he plans to extend the Myco Chris Record to Uganda and he hopes to come down in November.
