KAMPALA | LIFESTYLE UGANDA (https://lifestyleuganda.com/) — Tracy Kirabo, known professionally as Pia Pounds, has released another song called ‘Wuuba,’ which kicks off her music career in high gear in the year 2022.

Pia Pounds’ Wuuba (loosely translated as ‘Wave’ in Luganda) is a groovy Afro-beat ballad that tells the tale of a hustle story that turned out to be successful.
Song lyrics include catchy phrases such as “tugubakuba – we hit them hard”, “Spend All My Money for Rice”, a ghetto child survival code, and “Tuva Musuuka” a metaphor for how the early bird catches the worm.
‘Wuuba’ was directed and shot by Marvin Musoke from Swangz Avenue Films with a traditional touch that Pia Pounds infused in the costumes and dance.
Throughout the song, Pounds asks her fans to ‘Wuuba’ (wave) their hands and sway their bodies in celebration.
Pia Pounds had a great 2021 with the release of her debut four-track E.P titled Tupaate, which was released in early 2020. However, the songs didn’t receive much attention until MC Africa recorded himself jamming out to the track.
After the song’s massive success, Pia Pounds and Eddy Kenzo teamed up to create a remix with MC Africa for the song ‘Tupaate’.
Pia Pounds describes ‘Wuuba’ as a celebration anthem that summarizes the testimony of Tupaate’s success.
