2018 saw John Blaq switch from being a hip-hop artist to a “Kidandali” artist (Ugandan pop) and it paid off as he became the breakthrough act of 2018. In 2019 he made it to the Nojustok list of 12 East African Artists to watch in 2019 (see full list here). As we settle into 2019, he’s up and running to conquer the first quarter of the year as he partners with his production collaborator Andre to deliver his first banger of the year titled “Makanika”. John Blaq uses his hip-hop background to deliver tracks with lyricism and wit which makes him stand out in the industry. His latest track carries metaphors as he talks about romancing his significant other. Download the audio here. Enjoy!
