T Bwoy later took over the stage while being escorted by all the artists who came to render their support at the launch.

The artist of the moment showcased his talent and took the crowd ablaze with his unique dance moves. T Bwoy finally gave a few words of appreciation to all who attended.
“I would like to thank you all for coming, happy Dweet from me. There was a point I almost gave up on music. One day I was standing right here on this stage, I sang one song and K-smash made me sing two more songs at a go! So, right now, if it wasn’t for K-smash and people like Jerry Fingers, T Sean and James Sakala the list is endless, I wouldn’t have been here today. Thank you all for coming,” hesaid.
T Bwoy, whose real names are Tanonga Nswana rose to fame a decade back with his hit single ‘Mwati Uziba’ produced by Jerry Fingers
