Early life and education

Her mother passed away when she was at the age of six and this pushed figure in the world of hustling at an early age. Full figure says she didn’t get any chance of going to school because of her family.
Nakangubi says her stepmother frustrated her and she ended up quitting school in primary two.
At an age of 13 years, she started a business of maize roasting by the roadside and it’s this job that connected her to various market women that loved her and one of them took up her and brought her to Kampala and she became a house girl in Natete but figure was not paid for a while.

Jennifer Full Figure loved to sing but she never knew where to start from but one day she heard that the then biggest band in the land Eagles production was recruiting musicians.
She decided to try her luck but on the first day, they recruited her as a casual labourer but not as the musician in the band. This is because the band had talented singing girls more than her.
While at Eagles Production, Full Figure managed to go for shows and performances in deep villages and they could spend months there.
It’s during this time that she wrote her song mukyakale but could not get a chance to perform the song and record because Eagles didn’t give her a chance to record the song.
Jennifer was inspired by Chance Nalubega a performing artist who was big in the 2000s and she was known for her hit singles such as yiga okwagala, bichupuli group and many more hits.
According to Jennifer Full Figure, Chance Nalubega was a regular visitor at the Calendar based band and in one of their discussions she had Chance saying that she was rushing for rehearsals at Half London in Kabalagala and a few months later she was fired from Eagles production because the band wanted to cut its costs.
On firing her she headed directly to Kabalagala where Chance Nalubega‘s band was based and was rehearsing from. On reaching the point she told Chance on how she wanted to sing and Nalubega put her on stage and loved the mukyakale song.
The next day she took her directly to Kasiwukira studios where the official producer of the studio Travis Kazibwe alias Dr Tee recorded the song and a then young artist Karim Savva also put the vocals on the song.
After its release, the song became a hit and a then big promoter Lucyn paid her 500,000 shillings but unfortunately, she lost the money. This hit single took her places and she moved places with Chance Nalubega.
A few years later she meant Pallaso in the USA and asked him to RMX the song which she allowed and Mukyakale RMX became a very big hit.
