Besides there was a lot of witchcraft by then. However the arrival of Grace Nakimera, Cindy and Chandiru was a game changer for the women.

Nakimera conquered the Afrobeats genre, Cindy the dancehall and Chandiru the RnB charts and rhe rest is history. The other female artists who came after have been able to enjoy the success because of the work done by these three artists.
