Losing his mother in 2014 was one of the most painful moments in his life, an experience which sharply reminded him of the frailty and temporal nature of this life and thus led to the birth of the project “Breaking News” which is a project initiated by Kamlesh Kagaba in partnership with UrbanLight Recordings to highlight the various misplaced priorities we have in our society with a view to give practical solutions that can jolt us back to consider and esteem the important things in life. Several major artistes played a part in the production of this classic album, including Amos & Josh, Benjamin Webi, Ruyonga (Uganda), Samukat, Rigga, Kerah (Gospel Fathers) among others.
