About A Ka Dope

A Ka Dope is not just a Vibe, Hype or even a trend. It's a Movement; a cut through multi-genre music experience that gives artists from all spheres an opportunity to get on to the Big stage.

A Ka Dope is that deep lying connection between the underground, the unheard of, and an audience eager for something authentically new.

A Ka Dope is discovery. It is unearthing fresh and new sounds, and going against the grain to uplift exceptional talents that reignites the passion for art, beyond what Ugandans hear on the radio.

A Ka Dope is a test of one's artistry and when an artist seizes the opportunity to thrill our audience, it is above everything else, a bold statement from that individual saying. "I am ready"
