My Song: [Ugandan-European] Jaqee on ‘Hero’

Ugandan singer Jaqee learned at a young age that her voice was her strongest weapon in getting heard in the patriarchal culture that surrounded her. Later when she applied her voice to music, she realised that she could also use her voice to share opinions and ideas with the rest of the world. In this week’s episode of My Song, Jaqee talks about her song ‘Hero’ which has her reminiscing about wanting to be a hero in her youth. But, as she concludes: “It takes a lifetime to become a hero.”
