With Fezah‘s mission to help artists create meaningful and consistent incomes for themselves, the booking platform’s portfolio has grown to over 180 artists and counting.

According to Fezah‘s Co-founder & CEO  Ham Namakajjo,

The journey has been quite extraordinary with our portfolio growing to over 180 artists and counting. Given that marketing activities have only been ongoing in Uganda, traction here has been greater. We plan on formally launching similar activities in Kenya in the later half of this year.

Fezah has seen quite a lot traction over the last year, and have now expanded it’s categories to include Comedians & MCs.

This year, the booking platform looks forward to growing it’s portfolio, increasing the number and depth of the tools available to artists, solidifying it’s presence in Kenya, as well as experimenting with various initiatives that will further their mission 

Fezah was awarded MTN’s most innovative app of the year in 2015 and this according to Ham is the entertainment booking platform’s greatest achievement so far.

This for us is a testament to the importance of the work we are doing. We are also a previous participant of the Silicon valley immersion program Blackbox that is held in collaboration with Google for Entrepreneurs. Indeed, we were the first Ugandan startup accepted into that program. – Ham adds

Fezah released a new version of its Android app last year in October, where the home screen was reworked to make it easier to showcase and navigate the App’s growing artist portfolio in Uganda and Kenya.

Other included features were;

Featured Events – Here you can find an event, and click through to see the artist that performed there, along with all the information you need to book them to perform at your own event – pricing, sample songs, videos, reviews, pictures and bio.

Popular Genres – The App made it easy for users to narrow the growing artist portfolio to only those artists that play that kind of music that suits your taste. The genres were placed front and center.

Top Musicians, DJs, MCs – Not everyone is as adventurous as you are. Once in a while, all you want is a tried and tested artist to rock your event. The top lists (Top musicians, Top DJs, Top MCs) will show you a lists ranked by who is being booked most, who’s most reliable, who gets great reviews for performances as well as many other criteria.
