Uprising Ugandan Artist Kezi Leo Releases His Much-Anticipated Ep “Afro Atarah”

Since the year 2022 started we have seen a good number of artists in East Africa, hit the studio and put together a collection of songs for their fans in the name of an album or an EP.

Continuing to forge his own path with his tribalizing sounds and songwriting skills, upcoming Ugandan afro-pop and RnB artist Kezi Leo blesses us with his newly much-anticipated EP dubbed ‘Afro Atarah” featuring various uprising artists in Uganda.

Afro Atarah which premiered on 4th March 2022 is a 4 tracks EP that includes African Good Guy featuring Levi, Bam Bam featuring Mune Man, Because Of Love featuring Ma Yout, and Blessed. The EP was produced by Fleak Type, mixed, and mastered by Imoroush.

Talking to Kezi Leo about the inspiration behind the EP, he said “The Ep is inspired by one of my friends who I schooled with. We studied together, and he got a kid at an earlier age. Despite the many challenges, I watched him morph and grow into an amazing dad. It wasn’t easy balancing school while working 24 /7 so he could fend for his family and stopping at nothing to make sure his daughter gets the best there is to offer. It’s a story of resilience. It never made sense why one would fight on so hard for so long”.

The 4 tracks EP is a heartfelt dedication to his friend and his young daughter Atarah who the EP is named after.

The EP explores various topics ranging from Bam Bam which is the lead single off the EP, African Good Guy, which is a song that talks about staying loyal to your beliefs no matter the situation featuring Levi, Because Of Love a love/heartbreak song with an afrobeat and afro-pop sound to it featuring Ma Yout and Blessed is the last song off the EP. It is an afro-fusion song that talks about how blessed we are, despite the hard times.
