From brick layer to top local musician, Chris Evans shares his story on Stripped

By Annah. N

Christopher Evans Kaweesa who has steadily risen on the Uganda music scene intimated to Lucky and Gaetano about his early life.  Mulungi singer did not hold back as he took the Over Drive duo through his early life.


” I had a humble background. My father died after my primary seven. I was later on taken care of by an old man in our village who did not have much. I joined a secondary school where we had to engage in some labour in exchange for our education. Among the things I did was laying bricks. I guess I would be a professional brink layer if I had not gone far with my life.” -Chris Evans


Throught out all his early life, it would not wrong to say 28 year old vocalist was and is still a brilliant man. He got a bachelor’s degree in agriculture at Makerere University a course that did not please his guardian but was what he was offered on government scholarship.

Chris opened up to Lucky about his past relationship that almost saw him commit suicide but was saved by a manger who called to inform him about a concert he was supposed to be performing at. He says it was his first cut and he had no better way to handle it.

The singer plans to open up a company that will support upcoming artist and help nurture  young talent.

With such a flawless yet effortless akapela, there is no doubt this young musician is still destined for greatness.
