KAMPALA – If you thought Mzee Ssentamu’s singing children were limited to Bobi, Banjoman, Eddie Yawe, Mickie Wine and Dax Vybz, you were seriously wrong.
Well, the boys are also blessed with a sister whose vocals are something to reckon with.
Irene Kayemba from Kibz Music Revolution, the elder sister to the 2021 Presidential hopeful over the weekend held her maiden online concert dubbed ‘Woman’ that was applauded by many of her music fans and followers.
The concert that immediately got underway a few minutes after her young brother Bobi Wine’s political address to the nation lived up to the billing with the silky-voiced diva putting up a memorable performance.
The lighting and sound from her band perfectly matched her vibes, something that indicated that they had good preparations and rehearsals before the concert.
She entertained her fans for close to two solid hours of non-stop music as she took them through her music journey with songs like; Akakeeka, Mmeere Yamutima, A Better Country, Wadda Wa and climaxed her performance with ‘Woman‘.
Overwhelmed by the love and support she received, Kayemba took to her social media pages and thanked whoever was online and supported her in any way to ensure that her show was a success.
“Yesterday was a great experience as I was launching my album #WOMAN with a great performance that you all enjoyed and it was a success because of my magical Team; so allow me to appreciate first the Sponsors Bidco Uganda Limited Harris International then the KIBz Band thanks you so much guys for the great performance,”she said.
Kayemba further thanked the production team, the people on the lights, stage, visuals that made the concert magical.
“Lastly, I thank all my fans whom I call family in the music industry, thank you for giving me your time and ears to listen to all my projects, I am thankful. Thank you God for making all this possible”, she posted.
Her concert came just days after Barbie Itungo appreciated her in-law for playing a key part in their lives. Barbie said Kayemba gave the couple their first bed and chose to sleep on the floor with her husband.
“When we were homeless, you rented us a two-roomed house in Kanyanya and gave us your only bed. I have always asked you where you and Abdul slept when you sacrificed your bed for us but you have always smiled that question off. I still need to know how you guys slept when you gave us your only bed,” Barbie posted on social media.
