One can aptly sum her up as young and talented. At 21, Desire Luzinda, a second year Development Economics student at Makerere University, is not only a TV presenter, but a budding singer as well.

Luzinda, a co-presenter of the Weekender on WBS TV, has just released two catchy songs, Weekend Party and Nakoowa Emikwano, whose ample airplay on FM radio stations is testimony to a good career ahead for her.

Weekend Party, which features Mosh, who also wrote it, is an R&B and dancehall tune that is quite engaging for fun seekers. In it, Luzinda and Mosh urge their audience to go and have fun over the weekend.

The song was done in English and Swahilli, which gives it a wider appeal across East Africa. Luzinda plans to shoot its video soon.

Nakoowa Emikwano is a Luganda R&B and Afro-beat affair. Written by Ruth Naiga, a businesswoman, the song is about relationships gone sour courtesy of friends’ interruptions. Both songs were produced by Ken Lubwama at Steve Jean’s Fenon Records studio.
Luzinda’s boss, Gordon Wavamunno of WBS TV, sponsored her recordings.

The fifth born in a family of seven, Luzinda says she has other siblings with good voices although they haven’t come out to commit themselves to music.

Her performances at the 2006 Pam Awards launches tell how good she is though she rules out having an eye at the awards.

“I am not after the awards, but I wouldn’t mind being nominated or even winning. Since childhood, I have always wanted to be a musician. I used to sing in Makerere Full Gospel Choir,” says Luzinda, who admires Julianna and Whitney Houston.
