Lost And Found: Musician Romeo Akiiki Talks About His Music Journey

Back in the early 2000’s Romeo Akiiki was one of the most buzzing artistes of the time. He in fact released a number of songs which are still enjoyable up to now.

Among these are No Parking, Sure Deal which will get you on your toes especially if you were a party animal by then. Such songs brings back the memories for many people.

While appearing in a local interview, Romeo Akiiki revealed that they made such songs to become hits and last the test of time. For his case, the languages (Luganda and Rutooro) he sang in by then didn’t have a lot of music.

Besides, songs by then were not made hastily and majorly for commercial purposes. Apparently, Steve Jean who is a legendary producer was part of producing the songs thus becoming lifetime hits.

“I was in Kadz Band by the time I released those songs. We were there with the likes of Titi Tabel, Yvette Seguya, John Kahwa among others. We didn’t just make songs for commercial purposes but out of passion. A song had to go through different stages for sieving before it got produced. Besides my songs were produced by Steve Jean who needs no introduction in the entertainment industry. The language I sang in also played a huge role,” he said.

He added that he’s still doing music although not mainstream. It’s majorly cultural and traditional music that is used in movies, dramas and other things.

Akiiki who still looks younger despite being one of the veteran artistes said that he has very mature kids.

For the current musicians who claim to be the stars of the day, Akiiki said that these are correct because they are the ones ruling the airwaves. However, they should seek guidance and advice from the older artistes on how to maneuver the industry and stay on top.

Akiiki singled out Grenade’s Babandana song as his current favorite song.
