Top 25 List of Ugandan Pop Music Artists

To the outside world the list of Ugandan pop music artists is not well recognized as the East African country is more known for producing academics and scholars than international pop stars, but the top Ugandan artists are among Africa’s top afrobeat and afropop singers and performers within the continent’s growing entertainment industry.

Within one of the world’s most naturally beautiful countries resides an extensive list of Ugandan music artists.  Well-developed and continuing to prosper as we speak, Ugandan pop music is easily one of the top 5 music scenes of Africa, regardless if the genre is considered to be Ugandan afrobeats or afropop music.

In previous years, popular music in Ugandan was centered around artists like Juliana Kanyomozi, Iryn Namubiru, Cindy Sanyu, Jackie Chandiru, Bobi Wine, and a few others. Over the last few years, the country’s music scene of top Ugandan afrobeat and afropop artists has substantially grown since the 2000s.

While the global rise of Afropop music, popular music in Africa, has taken international markets by storm, there are other genres in the East African country. Uganda’s most earliest form music was kadongo kamu, which dates back to the 1960s. Another notable genre is kindandali, which has similarities to afrobeat music. Since there were earlier forms of music, then there must be Ugandan legends who made history and pioneered music in the country. These artists would include the likes of Elly Wamala, Fred Masagazi, Jimmy Katumba, or Philly Lutaaya, all who reign from the 1950s to the 1980s.

Viewing the top Ugandan afrobeats and afropop artists gives an inside look into the culture and lifestyles of Ugandans.  Despite being one of the smaller African countries, with a large rural population compared to the small urban population that only consists of the capital city of Kampala, top Ugandan music artists have somehow developed a thriving music scene with a large influx of national stars, and soon to be international stars.
