By 2008, Cooper & GWAy were famous nationally for pioneering a new sense of fresh and great, gospel music for radio and setting new fashion trends among the few city choirs in Uganda’s budding gospel industry. Cooper prepared the Group to make its official debut on the Ugandan Gospel music scene and by 2009 their first single ‘Makondere’ went viral all over East Africa dominating the number 1 slot on Christian Radio for many months at a time.
The video for this same song garnered the same level of attention and replays on TV stations in Uganda, Kenya, and Rwanda. And was later awarded Best Video Of The Year 2011 at the Olive Awards in Uganda.

The success of this album across East Africa propelled Cooper & G-WAy to regional fame opening up the doors to performances around East Africa and they have not looked back since then. Cooper and GWAy have done opening performances for internationally renowned artists like Donnie McClurkin, Ron Kenoly, Papa San, Shawn Gardner, and Don Moen.
