Making strides: It was on March 18, 2022 when Swangz Avenue unveiled a new artiste called Zafaran to the public at their main office in Industrial Area. There was a lot of excitement and expectations as Benon Mugumbya, one of the directors of Swangz handed over a signed contract. Zafaran was joining Winnie Nwagi, Vinka and Azawi as the fourth artiste to be signed under the label. Prior to her signing, she had worked on a Swangz project tagged Tusker Malt conversessions as a back-up artiste to King Saha and Chameleone. Isaac Ssejjombwe caught up with the new Swangz belle.
How do you feel being among three female artistes who are already established?
It is a blessing and I am grateful to God for the opportunity because I know many would want to be among them but it was I who got chosen.
Is there any pressure that comes with being signed to Swangz Avenue?
A lot of pressure. There is competition because you have to keep the face of the record label as an artiste, represent your fellow artiste but we are still rolling with whatever comes with it.
There was a rumour that your family was against you being signed to Swangz. Is this true?
