A combination of RnB, some touch on reggae and flavor in acoustic soul best defines the 30-year old Ugandan songbird.
Ntale has released her first single dubbed ‘Nyamba’ under Universal Music Group Nigeria.
The song’s title has varied definitions in different African countries but in Luganda – Ntale’s local dialect, it means ‘help me’.
‘Nyamba’ is a romantic ballad but very personal to Ntale as it speaks of past experiences in her love life. It is the fragility and vulnerability of love that inspires Ntale’s Nyamba song.
Having already garnered well over 11,ooo views and 18,000+ subscribers on you Tube.
The multi-award winning artist urges:
I want all my fans to fall in love, dance and not fear to express themselves when they listen to this song.
Because according to the songstress, love knows no ego.
In 2013, Ntale broke the glass ceiling in the craft of music with her hit song ‘Gyobera’.
Later releasing a number of other hit singles including: Kateteyi, Kyolowooza, Stamina Daddy, Gukuba and Sembera that have caught the hearts of many.
Ntale’s deal goes beyond her music deal as it extends into a partnership with U-Live Africa, a division of Universal Music Group Nigeria that will be producing her annual concert Ntalé Live.
The multi-talented beauty has proven to be a talented, capable musician and spokesperson. Who’s desire is to grow her brand, reach more people with her music, and collaborate with more artistes worldwide.
