While it has not been easy these days because of COVID-19 global pandemic, Deena Ug, a Germany-Ugandan based pop star sat back and worked on new music.
On Wednesday (July 15, 2020), the superstar diva unveiled new video for the already fan-favorite track ‘Tokota’.
The music video shot and directed by Meddie Menz an award winning videographer, shows Deena decked out in a Seventies-style wardrobe, dancing on top of worn-out vintage cars in an open garage, with a combat of dancers, happily grooving to the disco-full track. Other scenes show street life. The track video runs for 4:17 minutes.
Signed to Tuff N Ruff Records, Deena has through the years mesmerized and conquered the East African music airwaves because of her linguistic claim. She sings in native languages which to many, took them my surprise.
Deena is a self-taught musician who speaks six languages — including Kinyarwanda and some Swahili. She got noticed for singing, apparently without an accent, in Luganda, Uganda’s most widely spoken language.
Known for songs like Mumulete and Mpanilila, in the new song Tokota, Deena takes pride in indigenous dance styles and it is a track that encourages work out as many of the masses are stuck home during the Covid-19 crisis.
This with no doubt, is one of the most captivating songs to take music lovers throughout this season and many more to come!!
