Using Sheebah Karungi's Facebook account, Kiwanuka, better known as Jeff Kiwa, inboxed Chozen Blood to buy the song.

Blood had written 'Waddawa' and left it with Nessim of Nessim Pan Production, according to his interview with Vybe Life Ug.

Blood refused to sell the jam and suggested that he does it as a collabo with Sheebah Karungi.

His contract with the non-profit was ending in two weeks, so he came and linked up with Jeff Kiwanuka who was then managing Queen Sheebah under Team No Sleep.

The song was a banger.

Chozen Blood a few years later approached Julius Kyazze, the co-director at Swangz Avenue and he okayed Winnie Nwagi to collaborate with him on Yitayo in 2019.

Blood, who studied tourism at Makerere University, entered music through a talent search organised by Dr. Tee, real name Travis Kazibwe.

At the time, he had completed S.6. He came out as a third runner-up. However, Dr. Tee allowed him to stay around and learn the craft.
