EXCLUSIVE | A Pass hints on new EP ‘Bedroom’ in BBC Interview 

Hosted by DJ Edu or the Afro Boss as he is commonly referred to, Destination Africa is a radio show that streams on BBC Radio 1Xtra. This programme mainly has its lens on playing the hottest sounds straight out of Africa.

One of the segments of the show has Edu countdown the Top 5 trending hits of the week, and one that I do recall was Olakira’s Mazerati (remix) featuring Davido. The other segment of the programme, Edu usually has interviews with guests. First physically appearing on the show alongside Fik Fameica, May, this year, this time round, DJ Edu caught up with Uganda’s Alexander Bagonza alias A Pass in an on – air e- interview over phone about how the times of the pandemic have been, how he’s been holding up as an artist, and whether the people should expect any new music soon.

To this A Pass shared that he’s been appearing on a few online shows, and that life is kind of coming back to normal this side, as worship centers are now open, but with a restriction to the number of people. Plus, as a way of coping, most citizens are wearing masks; to which he revealed that he is part of a campaign to encourage folks to wear theirs too, for their loved ones. The ‘What People Do’ singer made two major announcements before he could sing out, one: he’ll be performing on one of the online concerts as we commemorate Uganda’s 58th Independence Day celebration. And the second and most important one; was that he has an Extended Play (EP) on the way!!


The EP’s release dates were not revealed as yet but one thing he did assure listeners for sure was that, it was going to be a smooth RnB vibe, and it’s to be titled ‘Bedroom’. In case you missed the A Pass of ‘Wuuyo’, ‘Memories’ and the likes, this might just be the project for you!

With the release of ‘Bedroom EP’, this will be the third major project from the unarguably and insanely talented and versatile artist A Pass is; and it will be a follow up to his highly acclaimed 2018 LP ‘African Yayo’ and his debut album ‘Nva Kampala’ of 2016. About who might feature on it, Lilian Mbabazi could be a good guess, according to my earlier intuitive guess. And producers Baru Beatz, and Nessim on the wheels of production.

Camp on his socials for updates. That is @IamApass across all. Also check out his 2020 releases below:
