PIUS Mayanja aka Pallaso reduced his former teacher to tears as he sung her a heart-rending edition of his song “Mama”
During the song, Pallaso extolled the female teacher for showing him the way and nourishing his music career. As he sung, she heaved, sighed and finally broke down in tears.
This was during the Kasawo SSS Old students’ mega re-union as the school celebrated 90 years and the launch of Kasawo Old Students’ Association (KASOSA). That attracted old students and Pallaso who studied in Kasawo from S1 to S4 wasn’t left out.
Surrounded by current students and old friends requesting him to sing for them, Pallaso pulled out Mrs. Joalia Nalwoga who was the deputy head teacher then, and sang for her his ‘Maama’ song saying despite the stick roles of the school, Joalia always granted him pass-outs to allow him go to concerts that developed his talent.
The cheers from students and parents, Joalia broke into tears saying this was overwhelming to her since she never thought students loved her.
