Masters Records has unveiled Angella Katatumba’s upcoming album, the Masterpiece, at Masters Studios, Naguru Ntinda 2 Road, which will be released on 30th September 2022.
The album comprises 15 songs, each centred around the life of Angella Katatumba, giving us, the Ugandan people, a more personal and up close look into who she is. This project is a partnership between Masters Records and Angella Katatumba in which Masters will act as sole distributor, promoter, and the main producer of the album.
According to Katatumba, she was grateful for partnering with Masters Records on her new album ranging from the producers such as Lawraid, Skillz On The Beat, WabzDj and so many others. The songwriters on the project include, David Makueta, Cieska Lytes, Stephanie Kirabo also working as vocal directors, and everyone involved in the making of the album.
“I greet you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and thank you all for making time to be here with us on this very busy Monday Morning.
A few months ago, a team of creatives came together with a simple idea of creating a sound art piece. An audio body of work that would push the boundaries on what Ugandan music is and what it should sound like.
Looking back at the handiwork and sacrifice that everyone involved in this music-making process put in makes me feel so happy and excited about the direction of our music industry. From the Songwriters, vocal directors, the producers, the instrumentalists, the DJs and our executive producer/ founder here at Masters Entertainment, Master Brisco. A lot of work has gone into this Album and we are very confident that everyone who listens to this work will find something they can love and enjoy,” she said in a statement.
“Making an Album is never an easy feat as days of endless revisions, sleepless nights and for those of you who know what its like to create a digital product in our beloved country Uganda where UMEME load shedding alone can kill the creative process. But having spent over 20 years in this industry, its very refreshing to experience a professional and smooth song making process here at Masters. The Masters team has prioritised a simple process to ensure high quality music, and in turn, has ended up creating a hit cladded Album,” Katatumba added.
