SWEDEN-based Ugandan singer, Sylvia Namutebi, will be the main attraction when Ugandan boxers take on Russian fighters at Kati Kati Restaurant along Lugogo Bypass on December 19, the night when Bobi Wine makes his debut in professional boxing.

Namutebi, a daughter to Annet Nandujja, a traditional dancer, will unveil her music to the local audience, after years of performing in Sweden.

She will launch her maiden six-track album, In Nguo Ya Africa, at the Boxing Gala Night. The show is organised by a Sweden-based company, Pro Box Scandinavia and Baltic Sports.

At the show, Namutebi will share the stage with Bobi Wine and her mother, Annet Nandujja.

In Nguo Ya Africa (Swahili for African attire), Namutebi preaches unity among Africans since they have the same skin colour. In another track, Kyayaludde (Luganda for hatching), the singer tells of how she has been born, musically.

Omwana depicts the sad life of street children, while Nyongera ku Love is about a woman longing for love. Other tracks on the album are Tekaba Kalulu, Omukwano Gunyuma and Wesige Mukama.

Her music is urban contemporary.
She wrote her first song when she was seven years old, and her first audience was her mother.

By the age of nine, Namutebi was already exposed to many musical instruments and she was wowing audiences along with her mother. She joined The Planets, her mother’s group, when she was in S.1.

Namutebi relocated to Sweden in 2004, where she established herself by performing the Kiganda dance at parties. She has also performed in Netherlands, Germany and the US.
