Klear Kut is a five-member "hip hop" group consisting of Navio, Papito, Mith, JB and Langman aka Da Missing Link. The group was formed in August 2000. starting by performing at karaokes around Kampala. The group quickly gained a reputation for their original performances and soon caught the eye of local super-producer Steve Jean who recorded their first single "Nothin' Wrong Wit' A Lil' Doe". The song gave the group a buzz and they received more and more recognition; becoming the first Ugandan hip hop group to be accepted among mainstream artists.
Soon the group teamed up with D&D Productions to record a full-length album entitled "Mind, Body & Soul". The album proved to be a great success for the group spawning the hits "All I Wanna Know" featuring Juliana and "Superstar" featuring Bebe Cool. The singles topped the charts in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. The video for "All I Wanna Know" was an even bigger success. The high quality of the video earned the group two nominations at the prestigious 2002 KORA All Africa Awards in the "Most Promising African Group" and "Revelation of the Year" categories. This also made them the first Ugandan group to be nominated at the KORAs.
Klear Kut was nominated at the Pearl of Africa Music Awards and won the award for "Best Hip Hop Group". The group released another album "K2" which featured the hit single "Mon Coeur/ Murder of Crows". The video was on heavy rotation on WBS as well as TV Africa before the station's demise. The impressive video topped the EATV Top 10 for three weeks. The album features T.I.D., Bebe Cool, Benon, Rania, E-Von & Poetic.
Klear Kut has built a solid reputation by many live performances at a number of events including the Shaggy Boombastic, Miss Uganda, Tevin Campbell New Year Concert, Sanyu Carnival in Uganda; Miss Kenya and Coca-Cola Race Day in Kenya; and Bongo All-Stars in Tanzania.
