By Titus Serunjogi Sweden-based Ugandan singer Jacqueline Nakiri Mbabazi, who has rocked the European billboards several times with her 2005 single The way you make me feel, is coming home this weekend! Nakiri, who is better known as Jaqee, will perform at Kampala’s first unplugged show at Club Silk soon after her arrival. Here, like at all unplugged shows, no electronic instruments will be played. The artiste sits in the midst of the audience with a bass guitar and several instrumentalists.
Jaqee will also feature the Obsessions dance group. Having recorded in Sweden for five years, Jaqee only released her maiden album, Blaqalixious, barely two months ago. But this instantly became a hit all over Europe, receiving tremendous airplay.
Jaqee is also eyeing the Golden Microphone Awards, a series of prestigious music titles that will be handed out in January.
For all the fame she has been enjoying abroad, Jaqee has remained largely obscure at home. Her single Headfall flickered briefly on the local FM radio airwaves before it was finally dumped.
But indeed, it is high time we lent an ear to this lone Ugandan singer. If you love the music by Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill and Mary J Blige, then Jaqee’s The way you make me feel is definitely the treat for you.
The song is a soft mix of soul, reggae and hip-hop. ‘This is the voice of the black woman in Europe,” Jaqee said recently.
Jaqee has a seductively beautiful voice that has a pleasant tremor to it. She always sings about the joy and the pain of love for a young black woman in Europe.
And with such lyrics she has become an idol among millions. Her other tracks include High heels and Karma.
