However, the details of the contract haven’t been disclosed, but it is believed to be a long-term recording deal.
Zafaran is not a new face in Uganda’s music industry, as she recently backed up artists such as King Saha and Jose Chameleone in the highly successful Tusker Malt ConverSessions produced by Swangz Avenue.
Does Zafaran have any new songs?
Although details about Zafaran are still scarce, one thing to keep an eye out for is her bubbly sense of style that she displayed as a backup vocalist on Tusker Malt ConverSessions where she stands out with colour-blocking and a dash of well-tailored suits.
During her reveal video, there’s something that might be her song playing in the background.
Swangz Avenue has not elaborated on the release of her music, or how long it will take before we get to hear her.
Zafaran joins a number of female star artists managed by Swangz, including Winnie Nwagi, whose contract was renewed last year, Vinka, affiliated with Sony but managed by Swangz, and award-winning artist Azawi.
Swangz Avenue manager Benon Mugumbya stated in a recent interview that the label intends to keep all its artists and add a few more.
