Warafiki, a group of three ladies was unveiled today, Friday, December 12, by Fenon Records.
Fenon Records unveils new singing trio Warafiki: Who are they?
A new, slinky and talented girl group just hit the Ugandan music scene.
The girls are Tori (Victoria Nalugwa), Eyla (Damalie Nalugwa) and Treezy (Patricia Debra Nakalembe).
The group name Warafiki is Swahili for “Friends,” which is precisely what the trio is and had been for some time now.
Having met about seven years ago, the girls have banded together in pursuit of greatness in the music industry.
Shortly before the COVID-19 lockdown, the ladies set out to find a record deal which was not forthcoming, until Fenon Records came knocking.
For three years now, they have been undergoing immense vocal training and stage performance and presence among other things, readying them for the entertainment industry.
Today, the group finally premiered their debut Afro Pop tune under Fenon titled `Bwekati”
The song is produced by legendary Steve Jean along with Legend P and Joel Keys.
Despite their debut single being Afro-Pop, the trio say they don't want to be defined by that style and consider themselves versatile.
"We do different styles of music. In this generation, you can't stick to one style of music because the market is so wide,” the girls said.
“As Warafiki, we have songs in Afro zouk, Reggae, RnB and Tecno among others.”
The group will be hoping to walk in the steps of the likes of Blu*3, Obsessions and other bands which graced the Ugandan music scene years back.
With the guidance of Steve Jean, a legendary producer, artiste manager and event organiser, it can be said that they do stand a good chance.
