Canaan Gents is an award winning gospel a Capella Vocal Band devoted to making Christ famous while pursuing excellence and setting a trend in Capella music.
The group has evolved from its inception at Uganda Christian University to now becoming a respected brand in Capella music.
The group sings in stunning vocal harmony without instrumental accompaniment. It’s an engaging mix of tightly-crafted music.

The group has performed across Uganda to great acclaim at weddings and corporate events organized by different companies like Barclays Bank, KCCA, URA, and Charity groups such as Rotary and of significant note in 2017 at Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi’s 62nd birthday party.
According to its founder and vision bearer Samuel Lubwama, the group was founded on 30th November 2011 and later saw the joining of other memebers like Charles, Geoffrey and Samuel.
