Jackie Senyonjo

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Jackie Senyonjo is a Ugandan gospel musician, songwriter, and choir director. She was born as Jackie Tumwebaze and later changed her name after marrying Pastor Godfrey Senyonjo.[1][2] Senyonjo has won several awards, including the PAM Awards Best Female Gospel Artist 2012 and Olive Gospel Music awards for best video (Neetaaga Gwe) and best female artist.[3][4]

Early life and education[edit]

Senyonjo was born in Uganda and was brought up in a Protestant family alongside four siblings, being the second of them. She was raised in Entebbe but received her education in Kampala. Senyonjo attended Kibuli Secondary School and later pursued her studies in Entebbe before relocating to Kampala.[3][5]


Senyonjo began her singing journey at a young age, initially in school scripture unions and later in 1999, she joined Kansanga Miracle Centre church choir, where she honed her musical talent. The choir gained recognition in both Christian and secular circles due to their innovative choir music, led by a young and energetic group. They were even named choir of the year and had the privilege to perform at the wedding of King Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi.[3] Alongside two friends, Jackie formed a gal group called EXTANOL and released a single named 'Gyogenda' (Everywhere you go). Although the group eventually disbanded, Senyonjo remained on her ambition to establish herself as a renowned Gospel Artist. In 2008, she embarked on a solo career, and her music quickly became popular on radio stations across the country.[4]

Senyonjo represented a new generation of gospel musicians in Uganda, where the genre had traditionally remained confined within the walls of the church. Her music transcended boundaries and gained recognition even on secular stations. Since 2008, Senyonjo has released two albums and accompanying music videos, namely 'Nandibadewa' (where would I be psalms124) and 'Ndoperagwe' (I report to the Lord). Senyonjo's music adapts to the diverse cultures of these countries, appealing to worshippers who share her passion for praising God. She has had the honor to share the stage with renowned gospel artists such as KEKE from South Africa and AITY from Nigeria.[3][6]
