In recent years, if one was asked about the deejays (DJs) who entertain people in the land of milk and honey (Mbarara) everyone would say D.J. Alberto, D.J. Glamour 254 without knowing that there is upcoming duo of DJ’s that has been preparing for years.
This Duo is made up of two young-talented students under their brand known as XP-DJs at Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST). Mugasha Samuel is offering a bachelor of science in planning and community Development while Agaba Collins is a fresher pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering and Electronics.
They joined the entertainment industry when they were still in Rukungiri where they used to work on 96.9 FM Radio Rukungiri. This created chances for them, because they started to be called to go and perform on peoples functions like weddings and community events.
When Sam joined MUST last year, he continued to explore his talent by involving in various University events one which was the MUST Talent Night where the duo was in the machines. They have participated in various DJ Competitions and won awards, the latest one is when they emerged Second in Sprite DJ Competitions – Western Uganda chapter on the 24th August 2019. The bond between the two strengthened when Collins also joined MUST to study Electrical Engineering.
When they were asked whether this won’t affect their studies, they replied they always plan for their time and in most cases perform on weekends.
Sam said that one day they will be like the DJ duo of Slick Stuart and Roja . “And since we are at the university of science and technology, we are to explore news tricks and technology which is important in deejaying and we become the best in Uganda” Collins stated with a smile.
