Ugandan hip-hop has had a good 2016 start off and Mr. So UG has released visuals for his single eh mama. Eh Mama is the official single from Mr. So UG’s sophomore album, Destination AFRICA and it features the “RnB Kyabazinga” Maro. The song is produced by one of the most sought after UG Hip-Hop/Urban music producers in Uganda Aethan and it’s a remake of an old Ugandan folk song which attributed it to being a fan favorite in clubs and don radio.
“Eh mama for me brings back many childhood memories driving around with my father, as he played the original version.” Mith explained. “I decided to do this remake for it, so this generation can have their moment with the song whether in clubs, bars, cars, or just chilling back at home”
The video shows an insight of the daily life of kampala city center while it stays authentic in its story line. “The video had to be shot like so it stays authentic to the song,” Mith reflecting on the concept of the video. “We didn’t want to stray unnecessarily far from what we were saying on the in the song and the general feel of the song. That’s why it was done like that.”
