Singer and songwriter Martha Mukisa became an instant celebrity when her hit single, Sango with singer Eddy Kenzo ruled the airwaves in 2021.
She has never looked back and has enjoyed a steady success with many more songs. She is now an inspiration.
The singer, a graduate from Kyambogo university, returned to her former campus to share her story and her passion with current students. Martha Mukisa had been hired to perform at the Kyambogo University Freshers ball.
Mukisa who graduated with a diploma in textile technology advised students to be versatile.
“Everything has its own time. Just set your goals and go for them. If they don’t work out, try out something else. You will surely hit the jackpot along the way,” she said.
She also cautioned them against drug abuse saying there is nothing cool about drugs.
“Some of you think that if you use drugs or consume alcohol, it is fashionable. You tend to forget drugs and alcohol take a hold of your free will and you will do anything to get the money to buy the alcohol or drugs,” she cautioned.
