For senior one, she was admitted at Ndejje S.S.S. but only studied from there for one year, she said in an interview.

During the interview, she said she was “expelled because of the excitement of joining a mixed school” though she didn’t go into details apart from saying that what she did was “crazy”.

However, she said it wasn't because of fooling around with boys. She said the school offered so much freedom that led her to make some mistakes.

She was told not to return in S.2.

Carol Kasita was born to Fred Kagwa Kasita and Jane Kagwa, and raised in Maganjo, Kawempe. Her father passed when she was still young.

Kasita went to Gayaza Junior School, Ndejje S.S.S, St Joseph's S.S. Nagalama, Kibibi S.S. and Makerere University Business School (MUBS) where she obtained a diploma in Entrepreneurship.

Her involvement in music started when she was in school and in A-level she saw crowned the best dancer in the whole school.

She launched into professional music while at university after teaming up with a friend called Sherry to form a duo called Cash O2, a portmanteau of their name, with the O2 standing for them being two.

Their song was a producer called Katoke who is now out of the country. Hassan of Hasz Media listen to their song and introduced them to Eddy Mpagi of Ngoni who had now turned into a producer at his studio Good Enough Studios.

He wrote for them a song titled Banana and it was well-received.

Sherry got pregnant and quit music, and Kasita also took a break from singing, as she was still at school.

When she resumed, she joined S&S Band before convincing her friend Geosteady to help her make more of her gift of singing. He agreed to start moving with her and give her exposure.
