In a brief interview with Chief Sunday Kampala, (Sunday Okongwu) at Franco Villa, is from Amadim-Olo Ezeagu in Enugu State.

He spoke about his life as a young boy.

“I began my musical career at a very tender age, my both parents were musicians both late now, opposed my musical career, believing that musicians are unserious, drunkards and womaniser. They said I must study a noble course but not music.
So, because of this, I ran away from my home town and fled to Lagos, where I started my musical career fully.

‘I came to Lagos in 2001, my younger brother said I should learn films marketing at OC ventures,  Idumota. I always listen to music and jot down songs. So, oneday as I was coming from Idumota I  saw people gathered playing music. Right from there, I started moving about playing music and I recorded my first Album at the studio titled; ‘ IGBOS SUPPOSED TO RULE THE COUNTRY ‘ the sing didn’t go viral as such.

‘In 2007, I released another song, but this one was my hit song it went viral, titiled ‘IGBO IS THE ROOT OF NIGERIA’   The song made me very popular. After that, I produced more songs and getting more famous by the day in the music industry.

‘Well, I dont have any regrets, I am aiming higher, I have much  expectations at the same time thanking for where I am today.

Speaking further, ‘I derived the name ‘Kampala’ after a largest city, the capital of Uganda. My friends started calling me by that name. Many songs are credited to Kampala. Actually,  I can play drums very well. My candid advise to the people is to be focused pursue your dreams, dont let anything distract you. Be sincere, be contempted, rejoice with people making progress, don’t gossip, don’t be jealous of people,  slander no one, never reject little offer from there big offer wiil surface.
