Singer and songwriter Nince Henry has maintained that the late Philly Bongoley Lutaaya was an average artiste, going by the quality of his lyrical content.
He argued that he has listened to several songwriters from across the globe on which to base his opinion.
Nince Henry was responding to a question asked by media personality Calvin The Entertainer about his social media post from months ago stating that no single Philly song has ever wowed him.
The late Mowzey Radio, Nince noted, was a much better songwriter, going by how he moved his pen and can’t be compared to a guy who did the same in the 1980s in Sweden.
“Truth was going through my mind. I have listened to hundreds of songwriters from across the world. Babyface, L.A Reid, the Kerry Hilsons all the songwriters you know. And in Uganda, I have listened to kids who write songs. When you listen to Mowzey’s songs, you all know how he used to drop his lines. Very poetic and interesting,” he explained.
Nince added that it is not disrespect towards Philly’s legacy, but just that his lyrics were lackluster.
“I stand by my word, there is no song, with all due respect. I have so much respect for that man, but the point is there is none of his songs that I listen to and say I can’t do that. Like how did he think of that line? There is none.”
