Who was MARO before he joined the music industry?
Well, quit focused man who wrote a lot of songs and a dreamer. Worked at Cineplex cinemas in 2007 after my senior 6. Made as many friends as I could.

When did you start your music?
2010 with ‘’Toneeraga’’ collabo with the popular bobie wine’s brother, Mikie wine and Empress.

Who inspired you to join the music industry?
I had a lot of things I thought I would love to share with the population and voices like steve jeans’ and Maurice Kirya got me to follow vocalist not reggae or any other style I saw communicated to the people.

What challenges did you face as an upcoming musician?
People not giving an ear and their fear to discover a new voice or talent I had to give to Uganda.

What scarifies have you made to make it big into the industry?
A lot of time from the time I dreamt and chased this! Self-vocal training self-guidance and endurance of whatever criticism both from non-supportive family by then so, I took the hate that now has turned into the unconditional love. lol

What inspires you when you’re writing your music?
Environment and day to day life both mine and the people I meet  Basically Life experiences.

Tell us more about your music?I do a mix of rnb and afro with a lot of dancehall ingredient in it.
Have worked with many artistes all over the world with collaborations from Uganda, Nigeria, Zambia Tanzania, Kenya, Jamaica,U.S.A, and more are coming. Performed in Rwanda thrice, going to Zambia in june, heading to Europe later this year. Lets say music got me the life, nice clothes, and the visas in my passport. I live it I eat it I will die of it.

Kyokoba, did I get it right?, this song is making a great buzz all over east Africa, enlighten us on feelings behind it, sounds This is a Lusoga word to mean ‘’what ever you say’’  And the song is alove story. I did nt talk about my writing of many stories while I sat quit in my child hood  so, here it is! I write a song or story and I act and feel it as the character in question a man craving for love. That is why I put a lot of feeling in this particular song plus I want the lusoga language to have a special feeling when listened to. Because, as you know now that every one despises our Busoga , I wanna make em dance to it and listen to it and enjoy it; It has work though.
