Kenyans in Kampala have been united because of their shared love for Bebe Cool’s music. This was testament at his recent show at one of the local nightspots in Kampala. A group of revelers, believed to be Kenyans, were seen carrying placards professing their love for the “Love you everyday” hit-maker at Victoria Club in Kireka.

“We Kenyans… we love Bebe cool,” the placards read.

Kenyans’ love for Bebe Cool is not surprising as the singer started his music career in Nairobi back in the day and has since become a force to reckon with in the East African region.

“The love for Bebe Cool was overwhelming at Victoria Club, Kireka. Even Kenyans were holding placards screaming their love for Bebe cool,” one of the Gagamel fans said after the show.

Maurice Kirya releases much awaited “Headmaster” music video. Watch it here!

Maurice Kirya

By Bash Mutumba

Maurice Kirya is one of Uganda’s music legends, arguably, and has been plucking strings on his guitar since the late 90’s. Many of the artistes that were hitting during the times of his songs like “Boda Boda” and “Binadamu” featuring Tanzania’s A.Y, have either quit music, been forced out by competition, or totally changed style, but the King of Mwoyo has remained true to his craft of Soul Music, staying relevant till today.

“Headmaster”, just like other songs on his albums like Misubbaawa, Mwoyo and The Book Of Kirya, is an acoustic driven piece, rotating on just three chord arpeggios, but with a very catchy vibe; and news of its video getting released brought many huge smiles on many a music lover’s faces. A song that talks about the need for safety by condom use, when indulging in sexual activity, Headmaster has rather deep lyrics; and can only be deciphered by either a geezer who watched “Ndiwulira”, a late 90’s play by Bakayimbira Dramactors, or a keen listener.

The video, shot in a school setting after the song’s title, shows creative dancers doing their thing outside, a teacher giving Sex Education classes to students and Kirya channelling his inner Guitar Hero inside a classroom; urging the ‘Headmaster’ not to forget his ‘coat’ while going about his business. It is actually my personal favorite off the “Free Dreams” album, but I hope he releases videos to the songs on the new album “Beyond Myself” a little quicker.
