The details

Sheebah Karungi (born November 11, 1989) is a Ugandan recording artiste and dancer. After quitting Obsessions, a dance group she joined in 2006, she rose to recognition upon the release of her hit single titled "Ice Cream". In 2014, she released her debut project Ice Cream, a 5-track EP which did well commercially and further led her to win back-to-back HiPipo Music Awards Best Female Artist in 2014 and 2015.

Life and career

Sheebah Karungi was born and raised by a single mother in Kawempe, a city in Kampala, Uganda. After completing her basic education at Kawempe Muslim Primary School, she dropped out of school in senior two when she was a student of Midland High School, Kawempe. At the age of 15, she started dancing for money after she joined a dance group called Stingers before she left the group for Obsessions Music Group in 2006. It was at Obsessions she developed an interest in music, recording two songs before she left the group for a solo career in music.

In 2010, she released "Kunyenyenza", her first official single produced by Washington with writing credit from Cindy. She went on to release another song titled "Bulikyekola", featuring vocals from KS Alpha and then "Baliwa" featuring Coco Finger. It was until she released "Automatic", a song written by Sizzaman, that her solo career experienced a major turn around. Upon the success of "Automatic", she teamed up again with Sizzaman to release "Ice Cream" to massive airplay and positive review before she went on to release another hit single "Twesana".

In 2014, she released her first musical project titled Ice Cream, a 5-track EP which contained hit singles including "Ice Cream" and "Jordan". Ice Cream was massively received and helped win her Best Female Artist at the 2014 and 2015 HiPipo Music Awards. She is working on her second project titled Nkwatako.
