Last season, he briefly trained with KCCA at the MTN Omondi stadium, Lugogo under then head coach Mike Mutebi.

He had been eyed by two other clubs; Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) and Vipers.

Usama started his career at Mbale Tigers Soccer Academy, featured at CRO before he was poached by Kajjansi United, a third division club in the Buganda regional football league.

Besides the ball dribbling abilities, Usama is also an affluent passer and shooter of the ball over all distances.

He is biological brother to Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Isima Watenga, now at Chippa United in South Africa.

Nick-named as the Jabulani boy, Usama is managed by Prosper Sports Agency.

Meanwhile, KCCA has also reportedly secured right back Solomon Wafula (formerly at Mbarara City) and Emmanuel Alex Wasswa (former Vipers, Ndejje University and SC Villa midfielder).
