Around 1000 guests were invited to the lavish Bobi, Barbie wedding  on Saturday, 27 August 2011.
Singer Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, wed Barbara Itungo at Rubaga Cathedral Kampala in a ceremony presided over by Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga. Their guests were treated to a luscious lunch in the sprawling Victoria Hall at the lakeside based Lake Victoria Serena Hotel.
From the guests that attended the party, it looks like the invitations were limited to the ‘who is who’ in society. A rough breakdown of guests included religious leaders, members of parliament, ministers, cultural leaders, prosperous businessmen, artistes (both in music and film), family, friends and well wishers and not forgetting city socialites.
Each of these categories of people were duly represented. Notable guests included the Nabagereka of Buganda Sylvia Nagginda, Prince Wasajja, Gilbert Bukenya, Godfrey Kirumira and his wife, Latif Sebbagala, Eria Lukwago, Ken Lukyamuzi, top artistes except Bebe Cool, Chameleone and his wife Daniella were present for mass but curiously absent at the reception, socialites led by Judith Heard among others.
Bobi’s wedding goes down in the books as the poshest celebrity wedding so far! We are comparing it with the fellow artistes Jose Chameleone’s, Ragga Dee and Silver Kyagulanyi who also had lavish weddings.


The War between Uganda's music heavyweights Jose Chameleon and Bebe Cool seems to have resurrected again. Recently, Bebe posted status about his war with Chameleon ' beI cannot believe JOSE CHAMELEON entered rouge & started fighting me his maker after all i have done for this chap now i accept a lost chap is a lost chap,i will never protect CHAMELEON again am not suprised he's fighting me coz he needs the front page more than advise to u Chameleon sing music coz i've got alot in stock watch yo skin.

Eric Wainaina to headline Africa Unites with Dube’s daughter

Afro fusion star Eric Wainaina has been selected to headline the upcoming Africa Unites live concert in Johannesburg. Nigerian Asa and Legendary Lucky Dube’s daughter, Nkulee will join Eric on stage in a concert slotted for September 9. Eric will showcase the best of his hits from his album Sawa Sawa like Twende, Twende a collaboration with Zimbabwean musician, Oliver Mtukudzi among others.
Nkulee is the daughter of Africa’s late, great reggae master, Lucky Dube – but she’s not letting the pressure of following in her father’s gigantic footsteps put her off from fulfilling the musical promise she’s shown since a young age. Signed to Native Rhythms, Nkulee’s album My Way is earning this young artist a devoted following for her fusion of ethno-soul, jazz and ethno-reggae.
Asa will be heading to South Africa after performing at Back2Black, an African roots, music and cultural heritage festival that takes place annually in Brazil. Following her Africa Unites show, this in-demand live performer heads for several dates in Japan. Over the past few years, Lagos-born Asa has gained increasing popularity for her eclectic fusion of pop, R&B, reggae, funk, soul and world music – best heard on her self-titled debut album (featuring the hits “Jailer” and “Fire In The Mountain”) and the follow-up Beautiful Imperfection. The 2011 Joburg Arts Alive International Festival is a project of the City of Joburg, and is produced by Zanusi Brand Solutions.
