Following his US sojourn mid this year, many a fan had written off R&B singer Ben Mugisha a.k.a The Ben. And in these heady days as we head to 2013, it is easy for an artiste to become a yester star. But not for The Ben.
With his latest release, I’m in Love, The Ben is out to silence his critics – to prove to them that his journey to the United States was not necessarily a journey into oblivion. This Lick Lick-produced offering is testimony that the singer has matured – lyrically and vocally speaking. It is proof that the singer still has what it takes to blow the local music industry apart.
Currently, this song is in heavy rotation on most local radio stations, you would be forgiven for thinking that local radio DJs don’t have other songs on their playlists.
I’m in Love is a piano-led love story of a man who has fallen head over heels in love with a beautiful young woman.
With the kind of airplay this song is receiving, I’m in Love makes for a compelling reboot for a man who could, once more, become a serious contender as we head to 2013.
