Two of Uganda’s most accomplished female singers Juliana Kanyomozi and Iryn Namubiru are said to have resumed the bitter rivalry. Fresh details unearthed by snoops on this long standing beef say it resumed immediately after Iryn was named PAM Awards Artiste of the Year 2011.
According to sources, when Juliana won artiste of the year in 2008 and in the process becoming the only female singer to have won it, she apparently taunted Iryn. During that time Juliana used to tell friends that Iryn will take years to achieve what she had achieved in music.
But three years down the road, Iryn has scooped more than six accolades including this years artiste of the year for her hit album Biroowozo overtaking Juliana in the process. To add salt to the wounds, the last two years where Iryn took almost all titles before her , coincides with the same period that Juliana wasn’t even nominated in any single category especially in this year’s awards.
This has prompted music critics to predict the end of the Nabikoowa stars music career. Pals have further revealed that Iryn is now taunting her former friend turned rival that she is a gone case.
Remember the two divas started out their music careers together under the I-Jay all girl group back in 2000. They later split but the animosity between the two has never been a secret. Watch this space!
