These Are Surprisingly John Blaq’s Top 10 Songs in 2019

John Blaq, real names John Kasadah has been the talk of the year and we have seen him rise to success with his catchy songs and phrases like, “bwo bwoy bway” which are used by many in reference to his voice and style of music.

John Blaq officially started his music career in 2017 and has not looked back since. He has continued to entertain his fans with his drunken style of singing that is evidently noted in his voice.

He has released more than 10 songs and has various collaborations with artists like Daddy Andre, Grenade, Vinka (Sweet Love), Prince Omar (Kyoyoya) and Sheebah Karungi.

The ‘Makanika’ hit singer operates under his own recording label and studio called Black Magic Studios in Kireka which he opened early this year.

The bad boy rapper, as he often refers to himself has surely had a great year despite having tough competition from the likes of Vinka, Bebe Cool including the new girls on the block like Karole Kasita and Recho Rey.

However, Blaq has maintained his rhythm and has managed to pull through this year as one of the top Ugandan musicians to date. With that said, here are his top 10 songs in 2019 based on statistical data from YouTube and some secondary data from Howwebiz.

Produced by Daddy Andre, Romantic was one of Blaq’s best sellers. Hitting across clubs and radio stations, the love song had its way with the ladies and gained him a lot of popularity. Though it’s not his best produced work, the song still holds its own under this top 10 list.

John Blaq and Daddy Andre make a very good team. When they both work on a project together, they usually never disappoint. Don’t Stop has a catchy “Ki-gal-a-dem” (dancehall) like riddim to it which gave it the boost it needed to become a hit and a popular banger.

If the two stars keep their working relationship, they’re definitely going to keep producing more good music in the foreseeable future.

8. Kyoyoya – Daddy Andre Feat. Prince Omar and John Blaq

One of the best Afro Beat songs to come out this year. Prince Omar, Daddy Andre and John Blaq come together in this Nigerian beat fused collaboration to make something addictive and yet still replay worthy.

Kyoyoya was one of the tracks that brought Prince Omar out to the lime light and with the addition of Iganga’s bad boy, it was a hit right off the bat. If these 3 keep working together, they will surely produce more magic.

7. Maama Bulamu – John Blaq

Just a few months since its release, and Maama Bulamu has already taken some charts by storm. Though not as catchy as some of his other tracks, it has a beautiful blending of that slow folk music like flow and a little edging towards Afrosoul.

You have to admit that John Blaq arguably brought back that old school vibe that is similar to the Paulo Kafeero’s in a way. Their songs were so smooth and deep, they were later fused into traditional school’s extra curriculum as folk songs.

John Blaq borrows from this when making some of his songs like Maama Bulamu. This song has held its own and is his second most trending song on Howwe right now.

6. Makanika – John Blaq

Whoever doesn’t know about the famous Makanika track is surely lying. It was one of John Blaq’s biggest hits and also very well known for his catchy phrase, ‘bwoy bwoy’. His flow and lyrical content were on point.

Whoever wrote the song must’ve been on some really good heights because when you listen to it, you notice the polite and yet suggestive terms used in reference to makanika (the mechanic) like;

“kambeere makanika obeere motoka nga w’onjagalira nkukanika” meaning, “let me be the mechanic and you be the car so that whenever you want me, I can fix you”.

Quite suggestive stuff, right? Some players out there must have used the same song lyrics in vibing many babes in their respective hangouts. Wama webale John Blaq.

5. Replace Me – John Blaq, Sheebah Karungi and Grenade

If you’re wondering about the “sure win” phrase, then this is the song. Teaming up with talents like Grenade and Sheebah Karungi, there was no way “Replace Me” wasn’t going to make it to the top charts.

The Afrobeat banger hit 100,000 views in its first weeks and rose to 1 million in the next months without sweat. The addition of the Team No Sleep songstress, Sheebah could have been a major factor in getting the song up to the top, but who knows, maybe it was Blaq’s voice.

4. Sweet Love – John Blaq and Vinka

Teaming up alongside Vinka, who is one of the best female artists this year, Sweet Love was bound to be one of the best collabos from John Blaq’s career.

The earlier version of the song saw some traction here and there, but when Vinka jumped on it, everything went wild. Her being on the song gave it exactly what the fans needed, a female voice to complement what it was all about.

3. Do Dat – John Blaq

Do Dat is just a few months old, but it has managed to hold its own. Produced by T.O.N, the song is definitely a club banger. It has a bit of that dance and afrobeat all mixed up together to give you a pretty good listening experience.

Of course, it’s a love song, which is one of the reasons why it makes it to number 3. Ugandan’s love those bubu and baby hit songs. It’s what drives the world’s ever-growing population (no pun intended, I swear!).

2. Obubadi – John Blaq

Some of you must be thinking Makanika should be number 2, right? Well, that’s not the case because when someone decides to do a song about Obubadi, and clearly sings about how they’re going to use their tricks to get their girl into the mood then all bets are off.

With over 1.6 million views and still climbing, this is one of John Blaq’s best hits. It has a dancehall vibe to it which makes it a famous and catchy hit for all club goers.

Apart from having a good video, the song has some really catchy lyrics which rode on the famous Luganda phrase, tukwatagane” (let’s connect). With 1.9 million views so far, its soon joining the 2 million big club of most watched Ugandan videos on YouTube.
