My name is Nelson Yiga, Born and raised in Uganda but have lived in the United States for over 12 years now. I am a singer and song writer and also a Real Estate Developer. I am an aspiring story teller on paper.

Background Information

I have always written or sung about what has happened to me and what I have gone through as a human being. From a very wealthy family to an un-explained porverty that came into our family. At the age of thirteen, I was forced to start working a flee market just to bring food home to my family. A dream had come for me that one day I will go somewhere and become someone admirable and successful. I did work hard and fell down many times but always had enough energy to wake up. I did pay school fees for myself most of the time since my father had gone broke. I did get a chance to get into theater that saw my coming to the United States. In the United States, I did face a lot of problems since I came here so young. Had to work and work and work since I had no one or family. The people I met and the people I worked for became part of my family. The people I met on the way home and in places of work became part of me and their blessings came upon me that after an almost sucidal immigration process of almost wanting to kill myself, I got my residency after ten years of long waits, battles in court and lawyers. Since the breaking of that big york, I have come to build a real estate company that helps people get into homes and also a charity to help people that are in similar problems like I did have. I do KNOW that if I did not succeed America would not have had me at my best. And here I am giving back to the society I grew up in, a Society that I now only know.

Birth Place
Makerere,  Uganda

No Awards yet but have gotten so many letters of appreciation from Many organizations I have gone to raise funds for charity among which Hermann MEdical Center Houston where I volunteered as a coffee cart vendor, The Haulocust Meseum of Houston, H.E.B Pantry and so many others. My music is going to be released this January in Uganda and it is already playing on internet radios across Europe.

Additional Information

I will be featured on William Shertner's "heartbeat of America" due to my work in areas I have worked especially the help I have given to fellow residents in my community. Heartbeat of America was started to stimulate our economy after September 11th.
