It is almost becoming an acceptable norm and tradition world over for artistes at some point of their careers to pen down lyrics in praise of their mothers or just to celebrate mothers all over the world. The tradition has been going on for a long time with some turning out to become all-time classics.
From old classics like Brenda Fassie’s 1994 Mama, Spice Girls 2009 and Boys 2 Men’s ‘A song for Mama’, the tributes have been coming through with the new generation picking it up with West Africa’s Kiss Daniels having his own ‘Mama’ song.
While at home in Uganda, gospel artiste and now Member of Parliament Judith Babirye’s version of ‘Mama’ has turned out to be one of the all-time selling songs on Caller Ring Back Tune (CRBT) platform in the country. Juliana Kanyomozi’s ‘Woman’, Jose Chameleone’s ‘Sweet Mama’ and also his younger brother Pallaso’s recently released ‘Mama’ have also made a big impression on the music scene among others.
