Kezi Leo at it again with “Gwe Nalonda”

Kampala, Uganda | PATRICIA AKANKWATSA | Kezi Leo, the fast-rising Afropop and Rnb Artist is a Ugandan artist taking the scene by storm.

On Friday, he dropped his new love song named “Gwe Nalonda” which was inspired by actual occurrences in his life

Gwe Nalonda” is a Luganda phrase that translates to “The one I chose”. The song is a blend of slow reggae vibes and Rnb. The song explores a creative new sound by Kezi Leo, that aims at incorporating Ugandan lyricism and sounds with western instruments and genres. Gwe Nalonda is Kezi Leo’s second release of the year 2022. It comes 5 months after the release of “Afro Atarah”, a 4 song Afropop EP.

“I wrote Gwe Nalonda in 2021. It was inspired by a situation I was going through. As a young adult, love and relationships have been such a rocky road to tread. Especially with little to no guidance from anyone but the internet. Gwe Nalonda was a turning point for me. It is a reminder to move on and let go of the things and people who hurt you, no matter how much love you hold for them. It is also an apology. We tend to hurt the people we love the most even when we least intend to. I wrote Gwe Nalonda as a Poem. It is a poem with a rhythm to it. I hope the world loves it. I hope Uganda loves it.”
