One Little Guitar - The Words of Paul Kafeero

A 290-page book entitled "One Little Guitar" - The Words of Paul Kafeero" is now on sale at a book store near you featuring the life of the Kadongo-Kamu genre star Prince Job Paul Kafeero who died in 2007 at the age of 38.

Authored by his wife, Dr. Kathryn Barrett-Gaines aka Omwana W' Omuzungu, the book combines memoirs and Paul Kafeero's autobiography with a fascinating account of how the Walumbe Zzaya singer came to play the guitar.

According to Omwana Wo Omuzungu, compiling of the book which consists of 83 songs on 21 albums profiled in Luganda and English, with details of how they were recorded and composed has taken her a bit of time and money.

Over 20,000 USD has been used on the entire project. The writer who happens to teach Ugandan history and Luganda at a University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) in the US doubts if Ugandans will read the book given their poor reading culture.

Kathryn who was talking to one local television does not expect to make so much money out of this but just wanted to keep Kafeero's legacy vibrant and equip something for the fans. The book is going for Shs50,000 and can be found at Fountain Publishers.

In 2008, Dr. Kathryn told New Vision that: "Kafeero was the greatest gift from God to me. There is no way I can describe Kafeero in one interview. You have to read the book I am writing about him when it comes out." So there you go!
