Jackie is one of Uganda’s leading female R’n’B artists and vocalists. She kicked off her musical career in 2004 after she emerged as one of the winners for the Coca Cola Pop stars. This led to formation of the Blu 3, which became one of the leading girl groups in Africa. In 2010 Blu 3 went on leave thus leading to the girls working on solo projects. In mid-2010, Jackie released her first single “Agassi” in both Lugbara (her native language) and English. This song has earned recognition in as a solo artist and earned her an award Best RnB single in the just ended Diva awards

Jackie is amongst few Ugandan musicians to have broken out of the local music scene and made an impact on the African music scene. She says, “My style of music is hard to crack, because l do pretty much everything minus jazz hehe… it’s just Jackie’s Cocktail! “She writes most of her songs and co-writes on the rest. Her inspiration is the heart plus her obsessive fear of failure. She would love to be remembered for her resilience and zeal to conquer territory in her line of work that people wouldn’t expect a female to. Challenge is her passion.
