He is born to a musical family and for as long as he can recall Daniel Mugirya Wamono popularly known as Dannie Blezz he has been ‘singing forever’
That the 32-year-old Blezz has explosive talent is not up to debate. For some he is a master vocalist and for others he is a wizard on the guitar.
With a laid-back demeanor, he is the type of artiste who will let his music do the talking. His second album, “Love on Elgon” does much of the talking about his music prowess.
Produced by Sir Coffix on The Beat and Paul Shan Beats, this 13 track highly anticipated Album has a lot to offer.
Released on Friday 18th November, it features appearances from Jinja’s Kin Nana, Warren Trix, inspector Jil from Mbale and writer Francis Mutekanga.
According to the singer, the new album has been in the works for more than a year after his maiden album ‘Muntu Wange’ which was released in 2017.
The singer explores various genres, from RnB, Afro Pop, Zouk, Dance Hall showcasing how the album represents a future classic within his soul genre.
Blezz’s rise to stardom has seen him embrace a number of life’s trials including overcoming poverty. He has conquered all challenges that have come his way and now he is conquering Uganda’s music industry.
Born in 1991 in Mbale, Blezzcomes from a musical family. His mother and grandparents sang in church. Growing up, Danie was inspired so much by Michael Ross (a top Uganda artiste); his music and his dancing.
Mashroom has helped him release his maiden studio album titled “Muntu Wange” that has nine well produced songs ranging from RnB, Afropop and dancehall. His choice of music topic, like expected of a young man, is love.
What his melodious voice delivers is love messages well cutting across both young and the old generations. This kind of music has endeared him to the ladies.
The songs off his old album on the album include “Muntu Wange”, “Ekigambo” with videos already out and enjoying airplay on local TV stations while a video for “Osobola” is being processed. Other songs include “Wankwanta Ku Mutwe”, “Desire”, “Omukwano Gwo”, “Yegwe”, “Nywera” and “Bulijjo”
