After relocating to Kampala from Mbarara where she had made herself a name as one of Mbarara’s and Western Uganda’s biggest artistes of all time, last Sunday the 13th of May which doubled as Mother’s Day, Gospel singer Peace Mbabazi Kyamukongwire proved that she can also get a big crowd in Kampala if what Chano8 saw at her ‘Turinke Mpuungu Abasabaze’ concert that took place at the Wandegeya based Club Obligato is anything we should go by.
For months, her concert has been hyped on different western Uganda local radio and TV stations and finally the day came and all roads led to Obligato.
It was a night that saw many revellers come with their mothers and Peace serenaded them to their expectation performing majority of her tunes the fans liked. The support they showed her was encouraging and she probably has more reason to hold more events now that she as tested the waters with both her feet.
As early as 7:30 PM, Peace with the help of her husband Jackson took to the stage to warm up the revellers. Together they performed some of her songs as she prepared for second round which was breathtaking one.
Being a Mother’s Day, before she went for a break, she had to perform a special mother’s song titled ‘Rukundo Ya Mama’ which got the revellers emotional because of the way she sang it while kneeling down besides her mother.
As she went for a break, Dr Tee had another thrilling performance which moved the crowd before Peace came back for her second round performing ‘Omukazi Womutima’, ‘Ninsiima’, ‘Ninza Kurwana’, ‘Bwanyima Yobusaasi’, ‘Mukama Nayijuka’, ‘My Saviour’, ‘Okuremeraho’, ‘Obasaasire’. Shortly after, Pastor Wilson Bugembe took to the stage and thrilled the crowd the more performing his fans’ favourite songs the crowd sang along and danced to.
The concert that was sponsored by SMS ONE, Movit, UBC TV and MTN was also a celebration of a decade Peace has spent in marriage with her husband having two children and this was celebrated with cake cutting which she personally served to her fans
“Praise the lord, you have a hero Westerners, you just believe in me, I have all the potential and I am yet todo wonders because I can in God’s name” Peace told her fans
