2nd November 2018 won’t be like any other day in the calendar. In the books of history, it will be the day when the Club Beer-sponsored Kirya Live 2018 sold out, just like the other past Kirya Live editions.

The clock was ticking towards 9pm, and on the floor people were literally fighting for space to have a glimpse of their star – Maurice Kirya, the King of Mwooyo. Upcoming acts like Shifah Musisi, Afrie, JC Muyonjo and Body of Brian had warmed up the stage. It was the right temperature for a man who’s melted hearts with his voice.

“Ssebo Headmaster…” a familiar voice seared through the Victoria Hall, Kampala Serena Hotel. “Maurice!” Hundreds of fans shouted as they paced towards the stage, a phone in a hand and excitement on their faces.

Maurice Kirya stepped on stage to officially kickstart his highly-anticipated Kirya Live 2018 edition.

A head sock perched on his head, stylish dark glasses with a golden tint and a yellow jumper, backed with an army of talented instrumentalists, he kicked off the show with ‘Headmaster’ off his Free Dreams album. What ensued thereafter was an unstoppable train of an exhilarating performance that will stay in people’s minds for a while.

Fenon had done a decent job and the shimmering lights cut through the audience like a Samurai. The VIP section was packed to the rafters with Kirya’s diehard fans and they hanged onto every song he pelted.

Song after song, his fans sang along. Lyrics spilling out of their mouths with ease. He took them on a brief detour back the memory lane and performed classics like Misubbawa. Maurice’s creative candle hardly burns out. And it was lit for the entire show. He kept on leapfrogging from song to song off his past albums and, the audience sang along to every song, on top of their voices. He performed Heart Back from his Free Dreams album and his fans, mainly ladies, made a beeline and literally handed over their hearts. ‘Crippin’ drove the audience ‘Insane’.

He would later join the audience as he performed his emotive Mulembe Gwa Kirya song. Girls, now shouting themselves hoarse, raced to the front and took a plethora of selfies with their star. “…children will rise, taller than the mountains…” he sang and, his fans, indeed rose taller than the mountains and hungrily wanted a slice of the crooner.

10:30pm.

Every space was literally occupied. The floor was teeming of people dancing and singing to Kirya’s songs. “Next year, I want to do it differently,” he said, pausing the show for a brief speech. “I want to help young talents, to give them a platform like this one. So, next year, we shall have a festival,” he added, amidst thunderous chanting from the audience.

The clock ticked on, so did the show. A few minutes past 11pm, he sang his popular gospel ballad, Nze Ani that not only took people to church, but closed the show as well. He left his ardent fans yearning for more of him, more of his songs.

Music wars never seem to end in this country of ours and when King Saha came out and claimed to have been the one who wrote Dr. Jose Chameleone’s Valu Valu and Badilisha recently, we knew we were in for another of such wars.

According to King Saha who has been to Coke Studio this year, he is the one who penned the two popular songs. Chameleone has however come out to reveal that this is all bullocks.

Jose Chameleone

Here is what Chameleone said about the entire saga when contacted; “Those young people have things that are disturbing them. Valu Valu is not a song for simple minded people. I don’t want to fight with anyone but he should stop claiming music that is not his. I went to studio and created the entire song, he doesn’t have a genius mind to create the work I create. He is lying. Let him write for someone else and we see. He should stop using the media to sell his lies.”

Chameleone then referred all those in doubt to his producer PaddyMan who also confirmed that the songs are indeed his.

King Saha

“We worked on Valu Valu in 2012. This was after I started my studio audio one in 2011 and I called Chameleone to come and support me. He is a freestyler. He didn’t come with any demo, or book with the song. He got everything from his head as we were recording,” Paddy of Audio 1 revealed.

It should however be noted that some musicians don’t respect songwriters and when the song becomes a hit, they claim it all and leave the artiste with nothing.

We will keep you posted.
