Sylver Kyagulanyi


Sylver Kyagulanyi is a Ugandan musician, music producer and songwriter. He is the director of Sikia Media Services. He has been one of the most successful songwriters in Uganda, in the last ten years. He is married and has two sons.

Kyagulanyi attended Nswanjere Junior Seminary for his primary education. He went to Kisubi Seminary and St Charles Lwangwa Secondary School, for his secondary education. He was admitted to Makerere University’s Mass Communication programme but left it and instead did a degree in Music Dance and Drama, specializing in music.

He started singing when he was part of the soprano in Christ the King church choir in the early 1990s. While in senior three, his song won the Youth Alive National Music Festival in 1995. Having bagged a win, Kyagulanyi continued developing his talent. During his senior six vacation in 1999, he released 'Ekisa Kyabakyala', a song about women emancipation, which pushed him further up the music ladder. His Christian grounding is evident from some of his songs, such as 'Katonda Gwensiza' and 'Tondeka Mukama', that strike a spiritual chord in his fans’ hearts.
