Former Blu3 Member Jackie Chandiru has kicked off with her solo career and admits life is a lot harder when you go solo than when they were still a group because then most of the things come easy like playing their music, and performing in general.
Jackie says it is not easy for Radio Stations and TVs to play her music like they used to when they were still the Black Ladies from Uganda (Blu3) which was formed way back in 2002.
The Blu3 group is famous for hits like Hitaji, Burn which won the PAM Awards Video of the Year and their last Album ''Be Free'' in which they brought in DJ Benny Dee for its launch. The Be Free album has tracks like ''Where You are'' which they did with the Goodlyfe Crew.
Jackie's latest single 'Agassi' meaning "I have refused" is receiving massive airplay. As a solo artiste, Jackie says she is going to try out all genres to be able to discover her potential. She is responsible for her own lyrics and derives her inspiration from personal experiences which include a mixture of happy moments and sad moments.
As part of her solo project, she has done 'Going On' with Dr. Jose Chameleone and she has also not forgotten where she came from. She was featured on NTV Rendevous programe which requires that the guest artiste selects five of his/her best videos and interestingly Cindy's One and Only was among them.
