Droves of fans thronged the concert venue as early as 6:00pm. By the time Iryn Namubiru stepped onto stage, the gardens were packed to capacity. It was the last show on a country tour sponsored by Bell, that has seen her perform in Lira, Mbale and Jinja. The grand finale will be in at the Kyadondo Rugby Grounds, Lugogo on Friday and Ssese Gateway Beach, Entebbe on Saturday, when she launches her album.
But nowhere else has Namubiru been appreciated like in Mbarara. Frantic fans struggled to express their love for her in Luganda, telling her she was the most charming artiste.
Due to popular demand, Namubiru sang Simbalala, her duet with Bebe Cool, twice. She sent fans into yet frenzy when she invited Qute Kaye to sing along with her on their duet Osindise Asutamye.
Irynâ€™s Mbarara fans choke with excitement
