But the Pia Pounds song has had another touch fuelled by MC Africa, a fan who hails from Mbale. His TikTok video dancing to the Tupaate song went viral and yet he didn't even know the artist behind it.
Pia Pounds' management, African Bureau of Music (ABM) later went on a search spree looking for MC Africa, better known as 'Twende Tupaate', he was found in Mbale and the next thing was him meeting his favorite artist.
MC Africa met Pia Pounds a month back, which also happened to be his first time to be in Kampala in the last 10 years, he was so excited about the development.
The MC Africa-Pia Pounds meet has culminated in them doing the Tupaate remix featuring BET award winner Eddie Kenzo and of course MC Africa.
In the 3-minute-video that was shot by Sasha Vybes and produced by Kuseim, it starts off with MC-Africa's clip that went viral when he was recorded while dancing to the Tupaate song.
Pia Pounds follows with a bevy of dancers and as the first 'Twende Tupate' chorus is winding up, MC Africa in his blue suit and neck tie on a white shirt hijacks the scene with his; "It's a Weekend Vibe" as he ushered in Eddy Kenzo.
