ciddy’s’ rising star
Yusuf Sekatawa a.k.a Ciddy, as he is famously referred to by his young fan base, is a budding hip-hop artist who’s setting out his wings in the hip-hop world. Born in April 1994, Ciddy is in his final year at Green Hill Academy. He is also the only child of his single mother, Jalia Nalumu, who currently lives in the UK.
At his tender age, it is no wonder his interests are mainly rapping, shopping for apple phones, browsing music channels and the cyber space.
Ciddy started his music journey in S.1, albeit reluctantly, as he had very little time between school and music. He later went into serious production in 2010 and debuted his single ‘Let it be’, produced by Polo.
However, he admits that it is Lyrical Proof who gave him his initial contact with the hip hop world when he introduced him to Sam Lamar, with whom he did ‘We Rise’, which was well received by most urban radio stations.
Right now, Ciddy has got considerable works under his name like Tears we cried, Aint holding back, Walk to Fame. He also did a mix tape titled 100 degrees B.C. with Meddie Black, and has many projects coming along the way.
Ciddy gets his inspiration from the likes of Jada Kiss, Joe Burden, The Game, and his music is generally about life situations. Currently Ciddy is considering some production works abroad, and to also pursue a degree in International Business.
Ciddy mainly applauds his fans for the support they have shown to the hip hop movement, and says he is indebted to so many people who have kept him going but most especially his lovely Mother, Mr. DJ, Lyrical Proof, his producer Jay T, and friend Charles Semwezi.
