It’s unusual for an artist at the pinnacle of their career to opt for a hiatus, but the case was different for the accomplished rapper and producer, Lagum Owor, also known as Lagum the Rapper. Taking to the social networking platform X (formerly known as Twitter), Lagum clarified that his decision to take a musical break was due to fatigue.
Among his noteworthy projects are ISO (a 2020 album), RZR (pronounced RAZOR, an EP released in October 2021), and FOR ETERNITY (a 2018 LP). However, this isn’t the end of the road for his fans, as the “TuliWano” crooner has hinted at working on new unreleased music. He teased that a fresh body of work has been in the works and will be unveiled sooner rather than later.
Renowned for his potent rap that he fuses Hip-hop, Afrobeat, alternate music, with RnB to create a unique sound which the “FRISKY” likes to refer to as AfroRap, Lagum the Rapper has been hailed as of those Ugandan young urban artists changing and breaking barriers when it comes to the music scene, an envelope that’s peeled opened, with every single releases he put out, be it an album, an EP or even a singular track.
Backed by captivating performances, strategic collaborations, and heartfelt lyrics, Lagum has cultivated a dedicated fan base. As we eagerly anticipate new music from Lagum, here’s a personal favorite from his discography.
