Ks Alpha, born Kamulegeya Sulaiman Alpha is an Afro-Reggae artiste, born and raised in Kampala, Uganda.
With his band Zivuga, his music takes a dose of inspiration from Jamaican reggae music, spiced with a touch of African rhythms as evidenced in singles like "Waistline", a collaboration with Jamaica's Tanto Metro & Devonte, "Afrikan Gal’ Ft. Javada from Jamaica and many more.
KS Alpha is proud to have contributed a song, “Bilingi” to the soundtrack of the 2016 Disney movie Queen of Katwe starring Oscar winner Lupita N’yongo and David Oyelowo.
In 2015, KS Alpha founded Yes Iam African, a clothing line that marries African aesthetics with contemporary chic. Yes I am Afrikan prides itself in offering a new perspective through an old lens; a new dialect for an old tongue; an irreverent approach that twists the portrait askew while paying homage to its roots.
In 2019, KS Alpha contributed a song “War is ugly” to the global riddim project by Austria's reggae band House of Riddim featuring friends and singers from all over the world. From Albania to Zimbabwe you can hear contributing artists singing about various themes in their native tongue.
KS Alpha’s efforts have not gone unnoticed as he has gone on to amass a number of award nominations including:
-Kisima Awards (Kenya) 2006- Best Ugandan act nominee
-Buzz Teeniez Award 2006- Best reggae dancehall act nominee
-Pam Awards 2007- Best reggae dancehall act nominee
-Club Music Awards 2013- Best use of technology nominee
It is said that there is more joy in giving than in receiving. For this matter, KS Alpha set up a charity organization, Stay in School with Music and Basketball, as a way of giving back to society. For this, he gathers a mix of celebrity musicians and basketball stars to promote the importance of education by taking part in charity celebrity basketball games in schools while donating to various causes in these selected schools. The goal of these school events is to provide a fun, entertaining, and positive experience for students and to encourage them to continue putting their education first.
If ever there was a jack-of-all-trades, who at least takes the time to master all his trades, then KS Alpha is it. On top of being a musician, producer and songwriter, he is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, fashion designer, basketball, player, Soccer player and art director.
