Samuel Abinsinguza alias Samie Smilz came to the music scene, in 2016, with his first Album B.O.L.D. Intrigued with the art of songwriting and using music to tell the simplicity and profundity of day to day life experiences, he captured the attention of many on social media getting thousands of views on his first video “Without Love”. Which was followed by the likes of “Addicted”, the sensational “I belong” “Wampangula” and the recently released ‘masterpieces’.
From being in the crowd and hiding behind the scenes, worship leading in Church helped him to sharpen his art and develop a stage presence. But more importantly, uncover his love for God and the passion to serve him through music.
Growing up in a gospel music industry predominantly led by bands like Hillsong, he developed a passion to create a fusion of western and the African sound explaining why his music crosses borders easily.
