The 33-year-old songwriter will launch the album at Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala.

On the album, which was produced locally, she features celebrated musicians like Eddy Kenzo, who recently won an award in the US for his collaboration with American R'n'B singer Matthew David Benson, aka Matt B; and Shafik Walukagga, aka Fik Fameica.

She has also tapped the talent of Kenyan crooners Arrow Boy and Red San for the album dubbed 'Limited Edition'.

The dancehall sensation, who broke through the music industry with her 2018 single 'Yaka', is said to have ditched her old management, according to media reports.

"That's not true," she said on the call. "I've never actually mentioned my manager in the media. I have a personal assistant who I never mention in the media... I'm my own manager almost. People just help me."

This reporter talked to someone who claimed to be her manager and he said she changed management.

Kasita has promised a great experience at the album launch. "They expect fire. They should come and expect new music. it is fresh and it is nice... and so, so, different," she said.

She is also planning a concert in the coming year.

"I'm releasing this album to create a good vibe for my concert. and have enough work and content. I'm looking at a concert early next year. Probably January," she said.

While Kasita writes most of her songs, she has previously hired local talent in Ray Signature, Fyno and Geosteady to write for her.
