“It’s just that Lydia has a problem. You write a song today and she releases it three or four years later when its sweetness is ‘expired’… I don’t know why she does it like that,” she said while appearing on Galaxy TV.
“I wrote them a long time ago, some I forgot,” she said when they asked her to name the songs. Some of the songs she wrote for Jazmine are Omalawo and Binji, a collaboration with Fik Fameica.
Azawi started as a songwriter until she met Benon Mugumbya and Julius Kyazze at Swangz Avenue. They two encouraged her to switch to swinging. Before she met the Swangz Avenue bosses, she had also written songs for Carol Nantongo and Eddy Kenzo.
She has said in interviews that she had originally wanted Winnie Nwagi to sing Quinamino, her breakthrough song. The singer still writes most of her songs but she has said she is no longer heavily invested in writing for other artists.
Meanwhile, Lydia Jazmine may not be deliberately refusing to release projects in time. For instance, she recently released one of the three songs Mowzey Radio had written for her.
She revealed that it was delayed because of the split with her former manager Producer Bushington, real name George Bush Kago.
She was finally able to have it released because she was in talks with Bushington to resume working together though they couldn’t agree on some terms. Radio wrote Masuuka, Nkubanja and Gwokya Nga Omuliro for her.
