Ks Alpha, born Kamulegeya Sulaiman Alpha is an Afro -Reggae artiste born and raised in Kampala City,Uganda. He has been doing music since high school but it's in 2006, after university that he decided totake his music to a professional level by releasing "Am in Love”.
In 2007, he returned with another chart buster, 'Ugandan gal' and then "Selector", another hit which rocked the entire East African region. The "selector" music video made its way onto the charts of Pan African channels MTV Base and Channel O. This hit spread its influence a
ll the way to clubs in Johannesburg, Nairobi, Kigali, Dar es Salam and Harare. The aftermath of this hit single was massive
performance bookings across the East African region in places like Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Nairobi, Bujumbura, Kigali, Mombasa and lo
ts of venues in Uganda.
Ks Alpha has performed alongside international acts including Beenie Man, Shaggy ,Joe Thomas and many others.
His music takes a dose of inspiration from Jamaican reggae music, spiced with a touch of African rhythms as evidenced in singles like "waistline", a collaboration with Jamaica's Tanto Metro & Devonte,"Afrikan Gal’ Ft. Javada from Jamaica and many more.
If ever there was a jack of all trades, who at least takes the time to master all his trades, then KS Alpha is it. On top of being a musician and songwriter, he is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, fashion designer, basketball player, art director and web designer.
In 2013, KS Alpha founded Yes Iam African, a clothing line that marries African aesthetics with contemporary chic. In an era where caricatures parade the streets like Emperors in new clothes, Yes I am Afrikan prides itself in offering a new perspective through an old lens; a new dialect for an old tongue; an irreverent approach that twists the portrait askew while paying homage to its roots.
It is said that there is more joy in giving than in receiving. For this matter, KS Alpha set up a charity organization, Stay in School with Music and Basketball, as a way of giving back to society. For this, he gathers a mix of celebrity musicians and basketball stars to promote the importance of education by taking part in charity celebrity basketball games in schools while donating to various causes in these
selected schools. The goal of these school events is to provide a fun, entertaining, and positive experience for students and to encourage them to continue putting their education first.
Despite all that KS Alpha is involved in, music is his first love. He has a band called Mdundo (Mdundo isSwahili for beats). Mdundo is an Afro Reggae band that fuses African instruments/ rhythms with reggaemusic.
KS Alpha also runs a successful web and graphic design firm , Alpha Effects, which boasts of an impressive array of clients from corporate firms, law firms, night clubs, artistes, event companies,fashion houses etc.
Doing everything he does to perfection, KS Alpha is just the guy next door trying to leave his mark.
