Pulse Rewind: Good Music And Exciting Fashion At Rema’s Valentine’s Day Show

Rema Namakula mastered the art of linking uptown and downtown audiences with her music, and she also appeals to all genders and age groups. Her show at Hotel Africana on Valentine’s Day was yet another statement that she is here to stay.

Impressive was her choice not to have a long lineup of curtain raisers, and rather give her fans a show filled with her own music; the only supporting acts being artists she has collabos with. The most exciting of all was “Gutujja” featuring B2C, and she performed “Whistle” with Ykee Benda too.

Her super hit “Linda” with Chris Evans almost caused chaos, as the latter improvised the lyrics to include Eddy Kenzo her ex, which didn’t appease Rema at all, because her husband Dr. Hamza Sebunnya was present — she almost kicked Evans off stage, and perhaps didn’t want to shame dignitaries who were watching, like Speaker Rebecca Kadaga. Someone else though, could argue that the altercation was more of a joke or even a stunt.

The fans that came in big numbers were entertained in a huge dome erected in the Africana People’s Space, and they got to witness Rema’s beautiful outfits and music first hand. Known for having an edgy fashion sense, Rema’s outfits were out of this world that till now, people are discussing them.

Dr. Sebunnya also surprised the songstress with a Valentine’s present on stage, and this was one of the most exciting moments of the night.

In general, Rema Namakula has never disappointed her fans, and didn’t disappoint this time as well. To be in the loop with what happens on the entertainment scene, The Pulse got you covered. Just dial *157# to utilize the subsidized offerings like data bundles.

Top 5 Ugandan Songs On “Tidal Top 100” This Week And Why John Blaq is Dominating the Chart

When John Blaq released his smash hit “Tukwatagane”, many commentators doubted his ability to stay relevant for long, arguing that his low-toned, croaky voice will quickly get monotonous in the ears of Ugandans, and that he was precisely a one-hit wonder. The charts though, prove otherwise, and the 21 year old Urban Afro Pop and dancehall star is high flying. The top 5 Ugandan songs on the Tidal Top 100 chart are:

1. Do Dat by John Blaq
On its release 5 weeks ago, Do Dat shot through the ranks, and is actually Number 1 right now, even when the non-Ugandan songs on the Tidal Top 100 are considered.

2. Gutujja by Rema and B2C
The B2C soldiers were written off by critiques after they parted ways with Andy Events, the management that helped them rise to fame. However, they didn’t back down, and after a great reggae song in “Heart Of A Winner”, they dropped a sizzling hot collabo featuring Rema Namakula in “Gutujja”.

3. Makanika by John Blaq
This one was released about 3 months ago, and is still in the top 3. This should be an indicator of how much on fire John is.

4. Obubadi by John Blaq
Another one by John Kasadha, sitting comfortably at Number 4 and a Million plus views on YouTube.

5. Falling by Toniks and Fille
Allan Toniks’ sublime talent has never been a subject of contention, and after blessing us with “Romance” after a long spell of silence, he couldn’t wait equally long to release this masterpiece. And oh, the “Falling” video is arguably the best Ugandan music video of 2019 – so far.

Back to John Blaq, all I can say is he has proved to be unstoppable. He has managed to capitalize on his fame to release as much music as he can, before his appeal reduces. Also, what sets him apart from unique-voiced and/or rare lyric singers, is that his lyrics have meaning. On that point, try asking Latinum to write down the actual words to any of his songs, and see if he will be able to convince you that he doesn’t sing gibberish.

Unanimously, the pint-sized John can safely be called the New King of the East. He is the hottest thing from Busoga and Eastern Uganda as a whole currently. The likes of Maro are trailing. We just hope he follows suit and graces us with some Sogy lyrics like his predecessors including Gen. Mega Dee always did.
