Eric Opoka alias Eezzy is a second year Kyambogo University student currently pursuing a Bachelors in Industrial Art and Design. Eezzy, who is best known for his top charting banger “Tumbiza Sound” grew from an upcoming to a popular artist real quick and everything had to do with the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Eezzy dropped ‘Tumbiza Sound’ in the middle of the lockdown, when fellow musicians and campusers had less hopes of dancing again. The song slowly grew on people’s minds and its impact can be felt even after easing some of the lockdown restrictions.
Through his song, Eezzy is the reason why several university students and musicians stopped stressing and embarked on enjoying life using “emitima gyakaluba”, a popular phrase from his hit single. Eezzy’s Tumbiza Sound attracted the attention of officials from the Ministry of Health, who had reluctantly stopped listening to the cries of Ugandans in lockdown.
with all eyes on him after a successful 2020. He drops his first song this year dubbed ‘Wulira Omuziki’.
“Wulira Omuziki” is a Luganda phrase translated to mean “Hear/Feel The Music” and like the title goes, it is a song for the dance hall.
One thing we have come to realize about Eezzy is his love for Dancehall. It is something he does almost effortlessly and yet his music appeals to a large fan base especially back home North.
Wulira Omuziki’ was produced by Ricko – the producer behind the monster hit Tumbiza Sound – and the visuals should be on the way.
