Early this year, a woman claiming to be singer Geoffrey Lutaayaâ€™s mistress, accused him of fathering a child with her and neglecting it. Unshaken by the claims, Lutaayaâ€™s wife and fellow singer, Irene Namatovu introduced him to her parents in April.
How did you feel when he cheated on you?
I donâ€™t believe he cheated on me because I donâ€™t have evidence that he did.
What would you do if you found evidence?
It wonâ€™t hurt me so much because I know many men cheat.
Do you know your weakness?
Cheating is not because of a wifeâ€™s weakness, but it is caused by greedy men who want to â€˜tasteâ€™ what other women have under their skirts. Some men cheat when they have problems with their wives, but after solving them, they go back to their wives.
How about you?
I have never cheated
Do men hit on you?
Fans often ask me out but I tell them I am faithful to my partner because I know once I sleep with another man, he will never respect me again.
How does he react when fans touch you on stage?
He is used to that and knows what it means to be on stage.
Any other challenges of being in a relationship with a celebrity?
Girls fall for him wherever he goes. We also donâ€™t get enough time to rest since we work at night.
What do you love most about him?
So, give him other eyes and you are off to someone else?
No. Geoffrey is my father, mother and my family. Only death can separate us.
What annoys you most?
People who spread rumours about my darling.
Any crazy thing you have ever done for love?
I once used a friendâ€™s phone to call and entice Geoffrey to see how he would react, but he recognised my voice. I was embarrassed, but we agreed that he should not tell the owner of the phone about it.
Is your song Best Friend about a personal experience?
No, it is about a friendâ€™s experience.
What donâ€™t your friends understand about you?
I pretend to smile even when I am not happy. I can continue laughing with a person who has hurt me.
A star and wife of a star; do you also cook?
I have a maid, but still there are things I donâ€™t let her do for my husband. Sometimes I when I want to prepare a special meal for him I do it myself.
What is the biggest gift you have ever given him?
Saving myself for him is a great gift because that way, I protect him from HIV.
What donâ€™t you like about Namatovu?
Nothing really. To me, she has everything a wife should have because she is a very understanding, caring and hardworking lady.
Then why did you cheat on her?
Cheating does not happen because you donâ€™t like your partner. It is caused by many things like curiosity or excitement.
So did you just want to â€˜tasteâ€™ Yesigye, the woman you allegedly had an affair with?
All I can say is I love Irene from the bottom of my heart and I promise never to marry another woman.
But Yesigye says you have been together for five years.
She is lying. She says that to get sympathy from the public. If that was true, why didnâ€™t she have a child with me all that time?
She says you had a child with her called Nice, didnâ€™t you?
Nice is not my daughter. Yesigye just wanted to destroy my image.
But you are looking after Nice and her mother.
I am, but it is because I want to clear my name from the Police. I regard her as an adopted child, not my biological offspring.
Do you believe getting children outside wedlock is okay for a man?
I donâ€™t, because we are now in a world full of HIV.
Has Irene ever annoyed you so much?
Donâ€™t ask about our private life. There are things we cannot allow the public to know even if we are public figures.
Have you ever beaten her?
Wife beating proves how primitive a man is. Can you imagine what our children would think if they saw us fighting?
When is the wedding?
Just wait. I think you will hear the wedding bells very soon.
