Born in Uganda, Essence Kasozi has been an entertainer from a very early age. Her career began in theater as part of one of the leading theater groups in Uganda [Kayaayu]. She appeared in various plays by the group in the 1980s before leaving them and moving to England.
In England, she horned her acting & would go back to Uganda periodically to appear in various popular Ugandan TV soaps. She later decided to branch out into music releasing her debut "Obukodo" ( meanness ) in 1998. Three years later she released another World music and Afro-pop album "Ekiseera mu biseera" ( time within time ) [available here @ CDbaby]. This album has been in the top ten selling Afro-pop albums at CD Baby and is currently at number #3.
Her new album " Ansudde eddalu" is now available in addition to the upcoming reissue of her debut album "Obukoddo" which will be re-released as a celebration of Essence's 10 years in music.
