Prischa was inspired to become a musician by her father known locally as one of the greatest Acholi traditional (Otole) dancer. With her first song recorded in 2012, Prischa crafted most of her songs to help heal wounds in the post conflict recovery process of Northern Uganda.

Her musical tunes on the negative impact of domestic violence scoped her award and cash prize that instigated her to record more debuted hits. It made her rise to be recognized as the best Northern female artiste for the years 2013 and 2015, respectively.

As a fashionista, I spend most of my time working on my sewing machine designing clothes from my house and that’s how I was able to survive before joining the music industry. However, I am currently pursuing a short training in digital photography as well as video production to boost my work skills, I am excited about all this because I love hard work.

Signed under RockStar, a local music label in Northern Uganda, Prischa’s musical journey from 2012 to date signifies that when the two-decade war in Northern Uganda ended, social development took over with music taking centre stage in a land where it had completely gone quiet with exception of few vocal artist who sang from the return for peace.

 

Music has always spoken the same language and with its resurrection in the North, many envisaged it as the most direct way to link the region to other areas of Uganda, especially Central Uganda where music has taken a serious root. It is quite evident that with the entertainment industry steadily growing in Uganda, Northern Uganda has always been left out but not to Jenneth Prischa, who has beaten all odds to become a musical star.
