Irene Namubiru is a Diva of her own. Most popular for love ballads, she has been chosen to represent Uganda mostly because of her uniqueness, both in voice and personality. Just after the recently concluded Miss Uganda UK competition where the song bird was among the few who presented. We have come to learn that Namubiru has yet been nominated for another challenge. She shared her gratitude in a Facebook post; on her page
“I would like to thank the Indian High Commission in Uganda for trusting and Choosing me among the many talented singers in Uganda to be part of the 124 musicians from different Countries to represent my Country Uganda on this 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
Covering VAISHNAV JAN TO was a challenge for me being that I had never spoken or known any Gujarati speaking person before. But I understood the song very well, It’s a prayer! That helped me pull it off. We all need PRAYER in our lives”. she posted.
