Attendee critiques Woja Music's stage performance at Made in Yei Festival.

At the much-awaited Made in Yei Festival, a surprising statement has come to light from one of the attendees. The individual fan boldly expressed their opinion, claiming that Woja Music lacks stage performance skills.

“He (Woja Music) doesn’t know how to perform on stage,” the fan told Talk of Juba. “Even his genre is not popular among Yei music lovers,” they added.

Woja Music, who considers himself the ‘King of new music’ and is a member of the recently established Juba-based Gurush Ketir Family, has released only three songs since entering the music scene in 2022.


“The Made in Yei Festival was full of love and happiness and I just realised that my people love me very much,” Woja Music said in a Facebook post published shortly after his performance.

While the festival overall achieved great success with a fair number of heads in the crowd, this critique raises concerns regarding Woja Music’s ability to deliver on stage.

Talk of Juba, an independent source, is currently investigating these allegations by carefully reviewing the video clip of Woja Music’s performance at the concert.

Woja Music who was popularly known as “Woja Shots” because of his great photography skills got himself into the South Sudan musical scene barely a year ago after the release of his first single “Intiram” which with no doubt along with social media buzz earned him a spot in the South Sudanese music space.

The Made in Yei Festival aimed at restoring hope and peace for residents showcased an array of sensational performances from renowned singers such as the Hardlyfe Avenue Stars, Franko, Nairo da Bullet, Dantana, Woja Music, among others captivating a massive crowd that included politicians from the town.
