Sheeba Karungi has garnered a legion of fans ever since she sprung into the grand musical spotlight. And many of them (fans) will admit, even without reason, that they are in love with her. They refer to that love as ‘mad’. Because its obsessive and addictive to watch her perform. But mostly because it’s indescribable what she does to keep that following. To have the Sheebaholics believe and worship her and actually exalt her as Queen.
It is the way she holds the microphone when on stage. Like she is planning to do something dirty with it. The way she looks at it, paying extra attention to it’s non-intricate design details. Like she wants to kiss it, yet she is merely singing. The facial expressions that accompany that feat say something too. They depict a woman hungry for pleasure. Yearning to be loved, and consequently urging the audience, albeit inadvertently, to clutch onto their seats and just watch. It is her energetic dance moves. Her vibrant stage presence and vigorous darts about stage. It’s those things that make many men admit that they’d watch Sheeba even if the sound was muted. But that’s not to downscore her vocals. For they are as beautiful as they are enthralling. But it is her actions on stage that thrill us.
And these pictures say just that!
