They recorded their first single, Teso at well-known local production house Ogopa Deejays. The song was an instant hit and gave the girls much popularity on local radio stations and live show performances. In the years that followed, Tattuu continued to produce music and tour several parts of the country and East Africa, entertaining fans with their local hits.
