Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | During a cocktail event following the launch of NSSF’s Solana housing project in Lubowa yesterday, Lilian Mbabazi – one of the members of the legendary girl group, Blu 3 – sent guests down memory lane with performances from the girl group’s heydays.
Performing live with her band – the Sundowners – Lilian performed Kankyakyankye, Nsanyuka Naawe and Where You Are, songs that most of the attendees had not heard in a while since the group broke up over 10 years ago.
A few weeks ago, Lilian posted on her Twitter account, “Are ya’ll ready for a BLU3 Reunion?”, which received positive responses from her followers.
Besides her performances of the Blu 3 hits, Lilian and the Sundowners serenaded the guests with performances of Kuuma Obudde, Yegwe Weka, Ndabivuze, Danger and Goodlyf’s Remember Me and Nakudata.
These had the guests – some of Kampala’s most affluent personalities – thoroughly entertained following the launch of NSSF’s USD 400 million housing project, named Solana Lifestyle & Residences, located in Lubowa off Entebbe Road.
