Few days after the Team No Sleep (T.N.S) singed singer and performing artist Sheebah Karungi or Queen Karma (as she likes to introduce herself) dropped new single ‘Ninda’, that was thought to have been a piece of the many songs on her then forthcoming studio LP ‘SAMALI’ she has finally arrived it.

Ninda’ was a follow up to her other lock down hit single ‘Nakyuka‘ which she laid out 3 months ago; whose music video hit a million views the other day. These two are some of the many tracks that made it to her fifth studio album “SAMALI”.  Queen Karma had also made a brief appearance on Crysto Panda’s “Kyoyina Omanya (remix)” back then in June, of which all have been performing so well in the charts and playlist rotations and favorite domination.

In a post she made in July, the artist wrote saying:  “my 5th album might turn out to be my favorite album so far #Samali oming soon.” Sheebah also revealed the name of the LP: ‘Samali; which happens to be her maiden name.  Her excitement for this new album has her fans eagerly waiting for what she could be releasing soon.

Well, today the ‘SAMALI’ has been officially unveiled and the “Exercise” singer made the reveal via social:

Samali is Sheebah Karungi’s other name. The album basically taps into Sheebah’s story, her life, struggle/ her hustle and journey rising to the top but also has a feel good vibe to it. To sum it up, it is one that balanced album. You can tell this from its album artwork, that features the different Shades of Sheebah (sides) to indicate diversity.
