John Blaq, born John Kasadha on July 16 1996 to Mr Musa Waiswa Zodolo and Mrs Annet Nabirye, is a Ugandan songwriter, singer, dancehall, hip hop, and Afrobeat artist. He hails from Musoga in the Eastern part of Uganda in the Jinja district.

John Blaq spent most of his childhood years living with his aunt in Bweyogerere a suburb in Kampala. He had his primary education at the Lwanda Primary School and Hassan Tourabi Primary School and later joined Bweyogerere Secondary School for both UCE (2016) and UACE (2018) certificates.

He had a strong passion for music in the early 2000s while in high school where he used to compete in hip hop rap battles and always emerged as the best. This inspired him to pursue a career in music.

In 2018, Blaq dominated the music scene with his hit single, ‘’Tukwatagane’’. The song was later used to direct the ‘’Tukonectinge Pepsi’’ campaign after he signed with Pepsi in September 2019.
