Better known as ‘Kapapaala’, a song that catapulted him into stardom, he is none other than David Lutalo.who came onto the music scene in 2008, and what I can say it’s now 8 years.
It’s quite well, I cannot measure the public’s perception of my music. But since they [fans] made me what I am today, I can say-it’s positive because they have loved my songs since 2008 up to now Lutalo says; which points at positive perception and many things have made Lutalo what he is right now in a shortest while, because he is God fearing ,Maintains good relationship with fellow artist and fans ..In addition he now has 9 albums under The Hares label
David Lutalo has not achieved that much but for a few he has, they include; friends, plots of land and some few other investments but on what Lutalo has accomplished in the 8 years, still project a number of things in years to come, which cannot imagine; more hit songs, albums and success
What inspires him in his music is that he pen down all the songs and derive most of his lyrics/messages from real life experiences, from personal accounts and from friends. That is why most of song lyrics are unique because they are originally derived.
His role models are the late Elly Wamala and Paul Kafeero locally and on the international basis he preferred the late Lucky Phillip Dube because of his decency in the public and music which navigated through all walks of life.
Lutalo is working at crossing the boundaries and going international. His first attempt is a plan to record with Timaya, a Nigerian musician who has been dominating the airwaves in Uganda recently. Although he says the project is still long away from inception, Lutalo is determined to achieve a large international music following.
Currently now with a new album titled Kwasa which is among the best local and international hit album with a huge fan base both listenership and viewership
