The singer, a former student of the University, graduated with a diploma in textile technology, took the opportunity to caution students against substance abuse and asked them to be versatile when dealing with life.

Everything has its own time. Just set your goals and go for them. If they don’t work out, try out something else. You will surely hit the jackpot along the way. Some of you think that if you use drugs or consume alcohol, it is fashionable. You tend to forget drugs and alcohol take a hold of your free will and you will do anything to get the money to buy the alcohol or drugs,” she said.

Since her hit song "Sango" in 2021 with singer Edrisa Musuuza, popularly known as Eddy Kenzo, Mukisa has enjoyed steady progress in her career.

Kyambogo University has in the recent past experienced an increase in suicide cases that has seen the Vice-chancellor making efforts to protect the students from themselves.

Students take a lot of alcohol in their hostels, girls get involved in all kinds of relationships with older men and we do not have control over these things. To save our children’s lives, we are going to talk to the owners so that students do not come back to hostels late and avoid hosting men which later lead to depression when the men leave them,” the Vice-Chancellor said.

Mukisa recently released her latest song titled "Ntibula".
