GABABUGUMYE: Singer Andrew Kayemba aka Sizzaman

‘Gababugumye’ is a luganda word loosely translated to mean ‘being on the hot seat’. The song rose to fame recently when musician Jose Chameleone used it while attacking his older brother Humphrey Mayanja, following his comments on the arrest of Team No Sleep manager, Jeff Kiwa.

Also, Don Zella, an ex-fiance to singer Bigeye, reiterated the same to refer to her former boyfriend, who she thought was in a tight situation.

Well, self-declared ‘music dictionary’ Andrew Kayemba aka Sizzaman has hit the studio and recorded a song out of the word. Similar to its previous usage, he uses ‘Gababugumye’ to troll Chameleone’s elder brother Humphrey and Bigeye.

The song boasts of a rich lyrical package that he is famously known for; the lyrics are knitted together with humour, adding more fun to a listener.
Music critics believe it’s going to be the next biggest song in clubs. Like many of Sizzaman’s songs, Gababugumye has hard dancehall beats that are at one time fused with beats from Timaya’s monster hit, Sanko.
Meanwhile, the artiste has also released ‘Lusama’, his long-awaited video for the song.
