The song was recorded at Roni Banton's Monster Studios and its video was shot by Frank Mugerwa, alias Jahlive.

He has since worked on several other projects with some household names, including Sheebah Karungi, Feffe Bussi, Kalifah Aganaga, Martha Mukisa and John Blaq.

According to Slick Stuart, the success of DJ Shiru's projects inspired him and DJ Roja to also work on some songs with singers.

Their first song was Mutuwulira featuring A Pass.

The funky jam was recorded by Nessim when he was still at Badi Music, the studio owned by Bashir Lukyamuzi, alias Badi.

They've also done songs with Allan Toniks (Sunday), King Saha (Very Well), Jose Chameleone (Kigwa Leero), Bennie Gunter and Skales (Pon Mi remix), Cindy and Kemishan (Up In the Air), Nutty Neithan (Walk to Work), Rema (More of This), Bebe Cool and Daddy Andre (Nyimbira), Ykee Benda (Eva), King Saha (Edoboozi Lyo) and Winnie Nwagi (Sumn U Neva Had).

Slick Stuart, real name Stuart Kavuma, revealed their inspiration while appearing on Wolokoso Mu UG Extra, where he was sharing his journey into the music industry.

The deejay, who hails from Luwero district -- went to Vincent Alex Primary School, East High School Ntinda, Makerere High School Migadde and dropped out of Makerere University in his second year while pursuing a bachelor's degree in Information Technology.

He picked interest in music while in high school and his father used to a disco system. After school, he ventured into editing music videos and that's what made him popular even before becoming a deejay.

Then he started banning music CDs at Mutasa Kafeero Plaza when he was introduced by his brother who was also working there. He later left to work at Silk Events, owned by Elvis Sekyanzi, and this is where deejaying began. At Silk Events, he played at some big concerts like when Koshens and Sean Kingston came to Uganda.
