Recently, singer Iryn Namubiru promised an ‘Intimate’ kind of showcase and indeed she fulfilled the promise last night at Kampala Serena Hotel’s Victoria Hall where her One Night Only Concert sponsored by Bell Lager, Sms One, Fenon Events , Kampala Serena Hotel , Capital FM and BBS TV was held.
Fans marked time and as early as 7:30 PM they were seen marching in the hall ready to watch their star Iryn perform live. At exactly 9:30 PM, the diva was introduced on stage by the host who was Capital FM’s Flavia Tumusiime while lights were off with attendees standing up to give her an energetic welcome. The crowd’s ululations were perfect evidence that they were more than ready for her.
Clad in a hugging white dress and a pair of silver high heeled shoes, she kicked off her performance doing ‘Nkuweeki’, ‘Nkwagala Nyo’, ‘Anjagala’, ‘Nabulo’, ‘Akawowo’ and ‘Tebiba Bingi’ which concluded her first round. As she went for a short break, singer and multi-instrumentalist Kenneth Mugabi took to the stage too performing his ‘Kibunomu’ and ‘Naki’ songs which thrilled the ladies.
Iryn later returned and resumed singing ‘Empisa Zo’, ‘Nsonyiwa’, ‘Emunyenye’, ‘Bona Obasinga’, ‘Temperature’, ‘Ofuuse Oluyimba’, ‘Bilowoozo’, ‘Esimu Yekilo’, ‘Kabiki’, ‘Newadeyo’ , ‘Kyadaaki’ and went for yet another short break.
In the 3rd and final part, she got a time to sing for her fans the famous Christmas carol ‘Feliz Navidad’, ‘Gwe Ansanira’, Bya Mbirigo’, ‘Katika’ alongside Eppy, ‘Kachumbali’, ‘Ondi Muda Eli’ alongside Dr Hilderman, ‘Nze Nawe’, ‘Begombeko’, ‘Nsula Wuwo’, ‘Samwa Samwa’, Yoono’, ‘Simbalala’ and finally ‘Nakukolaki’
It was noted that fans kept ululating as Iryn put her live performance, danced and sang along her songs and the concert was attended by different socialites and celebrities like Mr Charles Peter Mayiga the Buganda Kingdom Premiere who was the guest of honour, singers Irene Ntale, Leila Kayondo, Winnie Nwagi, Angella Katatumba and Halima Namakula, TV presenters Douglas Lwanga and Calvin Da Entertainer, fashion designer Abryanz among many others.
