It’s no secret there’s a new kid on the entertainment scene.
His name is John Blaq. The new hip hop star is threatening Fik Fameica’s Hip Hop throne.
With songs like Tukwatagane, Obubadi among others, Ugandans are fast forgetting Fameica.
But who is this John Blaq? Xclusive UG explores…
John Blaq is a Ugandan hip hop and afrobeat artist. He was born in 1996 in Jinja Uganda. He grew up with his aunt in Bweyogerere, near Kampala.
His passion for music started in the early 2000s when he was still in secondary school wherehe often participated in a load of hip hop battles and never losing any of them.
This inspired him and his friends to pursue music further as a career.
During his childhood years, John Blaq experienced a lot of things many people in general couldn’t even imagine when he was still staying with his aunt.
But none of them deterred him from going after his dreams and they are always used as a source of inspiration in his music career.
He recorded his first song More Fire at Buddies by top producer Andy Music, now Daddy Adre.
Blaq says he is passionate and dreams of changing the world and the people around him through his music.
