Sheebah Karungi is a Ugandan Music artist who has grown amidst turbulence. Her journey to success was marred with challenges, but she stood rock solid and persevered to become one of the most influential musicians in the country.

Born in 1989, we track her origin from Kawempe, a suburb in the Capital-Kampala. Here, the legendary musician grew up amidst sacrcity and started singing at an early age. Sheeba notes that she was inspired by music maestros, the Destiny’s Child and TLC.

In 2006, Sheebah joined a girl dominated Music Dance group -The Obsessions. The group gained popularity spanning for close to 10 years with several hit songs like Jangu, wekuume and Begonza among others. However, Sheebah deserted the group in 2010 to pursue a solo career.


Sheebah’s solo career faced several challenges that derailed her attempts to climb to stardom for over 3 years but later broke the deadlock with a breakthrough in 2014 after releasing her hit single, “Ice Cream.” The song became an instant sensation and propelled Sheebah to fame.

She also credits her fans for their unwavering support throughout her career, ” this is for my fans, thanks for your love and encouragement. You inspired me to create this album.”

“Samali” is a departure from Sheebah’s previous works, as the album leans heavily towards introspection and self-reflection.
