Some of the hits the East African Community has enjoyed have been duets between Rwandan and Ugandan artistes.

Some of these collaborations have led to the export of talent, thus more earnings for investors in the music industry.

For instance, Face to Face, the most-watched song on the YouTube channel of Rwandan singing duo Charly Na Nina, was recorded by celebrated Ugandan producer Nessim.

Charlotte Rulinda (Charly) and Muhoza Fatuma Nina (Nina) also hired Swangz Avenue's Marvin Musoke to film their second and third-most-watched videos on YouTube.

Meanwhile, it's Nessim who produced their hit collaboration with Geosteady, which is now at 2.9 million views on YouTube. Producer Ronnie came in for their collaboration with Bebe Cool titled I Do.

In 2016, Deejay Pius and Jose Chameleone hired Paddy Man to produce their duet titled Agatako, now at 1 million views on YouTube. Pius also has a song with Radio & Weasel titled Play It Again and its was recorded by Eli Arkhis, the producer behind hits like Kano Kozze (Winnie Nwagi), Mapozi (Vinka) and Twalina Omukwano (Juliana Kanyomozi).

The late Danz Kumapeesa produced Too Bad, the duet by Deejay Pius and Ray Signature.

Another Rwandan singer who has done several songs with Ugandan singers is Bruce Melodie.

He also collaborated with Sheebah on Binkolera, which was also produced by Nessim; No You No Life with B2C (Nessim) and Asht with Crysto Panda & Beenie Gunter (Nessim).
