Sunday Steve (aka Kibuka Sunday Stephen) comes from the Mother Land Africa, to be more specific from Uganda. He has been making reggae music since 1996. He now resides in Germany. He's a versatile person who not only sings and plays the guitar, but also composes and produces his own music. He is a totally independent artist, working hard trying to spread his music across the world. His album 'Lord Knows' will be released December 15th, 2002.
The album includes 7 vocal tracks and two instrumental pieces. The album opens with an uptempo song called Dance To The Beat. The African influences are obvious here and the combination with the reggae beats makes this a joyful tune. Next comes Steve's favorite tune called Stop Adultery. He made the song because of the 'downpression' in his home country, of the disease AIDS. He has seen thousands of people suffering and dying every day, and with this song he wants to capture the attention of the rich people and countries to help the poor and needy. A song you definitely wanna check out !
Freedom Came My Way is a harsh reality tune. In the song he expresses what he faced in Munich, germany, working as a dishwasher to earn some money so that he could produce his music. It wasn't easy as he was being discriminated and some even called him 'crazy'. Check out the instrumental version as well ! Lord Knows is a heartfelt bluesy ballad in which Steve expresses his thoughts about Record Companies and their tricks. He says to depend only on The Lord and yourself. The beautiful instrumental version is included here as well. Next comes the song Come To Mt. Zion, a song calling out to all Rastaman to follow Steve to Mt.Zion, while Reggae Vibration is an uptempo song with dancehall influences.
Sunday Steve's album is an album of 'genuineness' and 'righteousness', dance beats and sufferation. You can hear that it wasn't recorded in a state of the art studio, his sources are limited, and he still has a long way to go, but we think he could be a promise for the future. He's seeking for promotional events and distributors who want to distribute his music in Europe.
