The question everyone must be asking is “who will be crowned female artiste of the year?”

The question everyone must be asking is “who will be crowned female artiste of the year?” So hot is the competition for this crown that for the first time since the awards started, it is hard to predict will take the title.
Unlike the men’s category, the female artistes have released outstanding music that makes prediction nearly impossible.

What is beyond doubt is that Juliana Kanyomozi does not stand a chance of retaining the crown she won so resoundingly last year as she has not released a follow-up to her debut, Nabikowa. Miles Rwamiti
and David Tumusiime make their predictions:

Iryn Namubiru
The rivalry is back on! Both artistes may claim that they have left their differences in the past but Juliana’s refusal to perform at Iryn’s launch proves otherwise as much as Juliana’s low opinion of Iryn’s manager and owner of Sabrina’s Pub, Hope Mukasa.

Never mind that Sabrina’s Pub is often touted in profiles of Juliana as the place where she developed her music career.

In less than a year since she blew back into town, Iryn was able to release an album, Nkuweeki, that comprises two singles enjoying heavy rotation on the airwaves.

The single Nkuweeki is definitely one of the songs of the year, a love ballad Iryn sings so emotionally— fans have been known to burst into tears during her concerts.

The other single on the album is the nursery rhyme, Simbalala, that has an inescapably catchy chorus.

Nkuweeki has even led music pundits to ask a question that was not possible just a year ago. Who is the better female singer between Juliana and Iryn? The 2006 PAM Awards may help in settling that score.

Harriet Kisaakye
For too long, Kisaakye has been stuck Kinigeria, the song that made her name.
The song capitalised on Ugandans’ craze for the Nigerian films.
The saucy lyrics for this ‘hot’ song had many adults winking as they protested that it was ‘about other things’ and made a star out of Kisaakye.
