Julio Rankings Set to Drop Debut Single ‘Maama’


By Isaac Tugume

Rising Afrobeat and dancehall artist Julio Rankings has stormed the Ugandan music scene with a fresh tune dubbed ‘Maama’, which is dropping on YouTube and digital platforms any time from now.

‘Maama’ is a song that focuses on appreciating all mothers everywhere in the world for the great job that they do, of toiling to raise children who later turn into important and useful people in society.

It is a song that so many people will easily identify with and chances are high that the Ugandan audience will welcome the jam with a standing ovation.

Julio Rankings, real name Julius Aniku Lodu, is a talented South Sudanese national who was raised in Uganda as a refugee by a single mother, whose passion for music empowered him to join the Ugandan entertainment industry.

He was born to Ms. Juan Annet and Mr. Alison Mamba, although he never saw much of his father since his mother fled their home in South Sudan with him and his siblings when civil strife broke out in the country in 2013.

A multi-talented upcoming artist, Julio Rankings, who is both a singer and choreographer, believes that he has the potential to take Ugandan music to another level by bringing a new and fresh style to the dancehall stage.

Currently doing his thing under Musoni Music, Julio Rankings was inspired to do music by his friends way back when he was still a student at Kololo Secondary School and since then he has never looked back.

This year, he is set to release his debut single under Musoni Music titled ‘Maama’, although he is working on  two other jams dubbed ‘OMG’  and ‘Namu’ which will be released soon.

As we wait for his song ‘Maama’ to drop, make sure to follow Julio Rankings on all social media platforms but don’t forget to like and subscribe to his YouTube channel!
