A Pass vs. DJ Nimrod: 11 juicy highlights from their feud

The war of words between DJ Nimrod and A Pass kicked off in February when the former dissed the latter's album.

That month, A Pass dropped a 42-track album which the deejay said did not resonate with the mass audience because it had no hits.

This week their exchange, which had taken a break, resumed when the crooner was hosted on NBS After 5, and the presenters asked him to respond to Nimrod's comments.

Below are the main takeaways from the conversation:

  1. "Just because Nimrod works on Galaxy FM, it doesn't mean his point makes sense to me; it might make sense to you [Douglas Lwanga] but I made that album well aware of who the target audience was," said the Didadada hitmaker.
  2. He said the target audience of the album is people who are already fans of A Pass.
  3. He said he is not trying to look for a new audience; he is satisfying the audience he already has.
  4. He said his audience knows what it wants, and he also knows what they want, and that's what he does for them.
  5. "I can't blame him because he has his way of looking at music. Everyone enjoys music in their own way," said the Memories singer. "But my fans are okay with what I'm doing."

Over time, Nimrod has said:

  1. He listened to the whole album but none of the songs is a hit.
  2. "A Pass is one of the most talented artistes in Uganda; it's bad for him to release 42 songs and none is a hit."
  3. If A Pass doesn't up his game, he will soon only be invited to perform at Tugende Mu Kikadde.
  4. "A Pass should stop lying that I'm not his target audience. At Noni Vie they played Enkudi, so if they can play such a song at a high-end hangout, it shows music is not selective. He should not lie to you that I'm not his target audience; we are all his audiences."
  5. He has never had issues with A Pass. He also used to be his fan until he became proud and started singing in English.
  6. The only songs of his he considers hits are Tuli Kubigere, Didadada, Mariana, Memories, and Chupa Ku Chupa.
