She has often been the curtain raiser for others. But now, Priscilla Kalibbala is fast rising to headline status. Besides getting tremendous airplay on FM radios, she is set to host other artistes for a big concert code-named â€˜The G-powerâ€™. It will feature Bebe Cool, Bobi Wine, Irene Namubiru, Chagga and Angela Kalule.
The show is expected to keep hundreds of fans revelling at Steak Out all through next Friday night. Fans will have to part with sh5,000 at the entrance.
Kalibbala just finished a series of new tracks, which radio listeners are already bowing to. And those who hear them at concerts just cannot resist their fervour.
Her single Yoono features irrepressibly bouncy beats and will no doubt drag anyone into the thick of the party.
Here, she praises her new lover. Yoono highlights the best of Kalibbalaâ€™s vocals: One moment she drawls along in a slow tone, another moment she is clobbering the high notes with such fervour. Even the harshest critic will be impressed. On Amaalo, a girl lashes out at a man for sweet-talking her with boisterous empty words.
The lyrics are witty and even exhilarating as they touch social stereotypes that everyone can identify with. Recorded at Dream Studios, the song is set to hit it big with fans of light dance music.
Kyuusa Mu Ku Byokola, her new duet with Chagga, will doubtless be one of the highlights of the G-power concert.
A former dancer, who had a stint with the Obsessions, Kalibbala hit the airwaves last year with Gumikiriza, a melodious fusion of light Afrobeats and husky flowing vocals. â€œThis song makes me feel like a true African,â€ says Bangi, a presenter on Sanyu FM.
Kalibbala comes of age
