Controversy

In 2018, Fameica fought over a song he collaborated on with actress/singer Hellen Lukoma and refused to appear in the music video.[20] He had a violent confrontation with rival hip hop artist Feffe Bbusi over a woman that escalated into fighting between the artists' managements.[21] In 2018 Fameica staged a show at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds that flopped due to overpriced tickets.[22] This is said to have caused the split with his management Kama Ivien.[23]
