"People out there think we female artists are loose, which is not the case. When I'm not on stage or in the studio, I'm human and I have feelings too. Some fear dating us because of the number of fans following us, they also think we have multiple partners out there, it's not true and not good to think of us that way." Read More

Swangz Avenue boss puts his merc to good use
Swangz Avenue CEO, Benon Mugumbya, is one of a kind. He uses his Merc C200 to transport construction items.
No doubt, this car is not designed to transport such items and in some circles, this could be their bridal car, but Benon is not taking any of that.
A wheel barrow, bags of cement and pipes were some of the items the silver Merc was carrying around.
A few pals who were concerned about how he was using the ride were told that it was only for a short distance.
Benon strikes a pose with Irene Ntale when she was still signed to the record label and of course, curvy Winnie Nwagi who is still signed to Swangz Avenue.

While at it, Irene Ntale continued the live chat with fans who were enjoying every moment of Nwagi not having a clue of what facebook live was or how to go about it. This left the fans very amused.
"So we are live at the KCCA carnival [Nwagi] Ka light nga Kalungi...and we are about to perform...Winnie say Hi...are on Facebook live?"

Irene Ntale through the Swangz Avenue label has released her Sembera video but looking at how the fans are requesting for the song, it could run over Winnie Nwagi's Musawo very easily.
Fresh from a short holiday in Lagos with her significant other who she nearly revealed to the fans, Irene was on NTV the Beat to talk about the Press Freedom, danced Waltz with the show host Douglas Lwanga and also expressed her worries on the new regulations that ban erotic dancing in videos
Looking at the shots from the video, you can understand why the Sembera singer is worried. In the video, Irene is this hotel attendant clad in a short outfit at the reception, she falls for a client who checks in for the night giving him this come closer mood just like the song title suggests.
In the room, she continues to pull those Sembera moves while playing with her legs in this short outfit that left nothing to imagination.
Irene Ntale rocked the Uganda Music Industry in 2013, she has since then given the old guards a run for their money.

Irene Ntale was yesterday appearing on Dembe FM to talk about her latest 2016 single, Sembera but the entire show was dominated by bitter fans who were calling in to accuse her of not bailing out her die hard fan who had earlier been arrested.
Sembera, is yet another lovely piece for the ears, but the fans were bent on the arrest of one of their own who calls himself; Musayi Gwa Irene Ntale.. Well, she went on to give highlights on other issues like her ‘huge’ behind which she said was not as a result of using FACO products and does not wear fake b.ums.
Asked on why she was bleaching, the Gyobera hit singer compared it to men who have money, they have a tendency of developing huge tummies, so for the ladies, we become light. I’m doing well at Swangz Avenue and I have no plans of quitting the label as it’s widely believed.
Regarding her die hard fan who was arrested, the husky voiced singer said that her fans should behave more responsibly, because abusing other artistes under the guise of calling yourself a diehard fan is not good for my brand and will get you arrested like it was the case for that fan.

This follows messages that Jane intercepted on her husband's phone, they turned out to be from Irene the musician. Explanations from the man that they were working on a project together did not add up, this has been going on for way too long, she added.
This evening, Irene responded and in her response she says; these men are just fans who love our music and spend their valuable time drooling over our pics.
"What makes you think I can't get my own man and have to steal yours... These men download our pics and flood them in their phones!! They are our fans and love our music."
The Gwe Aliko singer also made it a point that she responds to the first comments but this one got our attention too;

Swangz Avenue's Irene Ntale and Team No Sleep's Sheebah Karungi have worked on something together and the end result is, Otubatisa, their latest collaboration song which was released yesterday, it's been well received.
When the Gyobera star meets the Twesana queen from TNS, fans of both artistes are in for a musical treat.
In the song, they sing about their lover who is playing them with lovers in Jinja, Naalya, Buziga and even in Matugga where he hails from.
Irene Ntale has two collabos with Bebe Cool, 'Love Letter' and 'Addiction', 'Easy' with Jose Chameleone, 'Bikoola' with Radio and Weasel, Katambala with Ray Signature, she was also working on another collabo with Apass.
On the other hand, Sheebah Karungi is having a few collabos out there, two with Pallaso; 'Go Down Low' which is by all standards her best followed by 'Mundongo'. Sheebah also teamed up with Beenie Gunter to do a remix of No Offence, another good one.
Short of that, the two young female Uganda artistes can be defined by their classic hits, Gyobera by Ntale and Twesana by Sheebah.

Irene Ntale has been forced to postpone a concert that was scheduled for August 28 at Hotel Africana. It should not be recalled that on that day, the battle between Jamaican stars Konshens and Busy Signal will be taking place something that left them with no choice but to consider changing the date.
In a statement signed by Swangz Avenue boss, Benon Mugumbya, he says that a new date will be communicated at a later stage;
"We regret to inform the general public and Irene Ntale fans that the maiden concert of our artist Irene Ntale that was to be staged Friday 28th August 2015 at Hotel Africana will not take place as earlier communicated. This decision has been reached after extensive consultations with all prospective sponsors and partners."
"A new date will be communicated once all involved parties re-align their different schedules. This change will not affect the release of Irene Ntale’s album and a release date will be communicated independently from a launch date. We appreciate your continued support."
During the Miss Uganda show that saw the 22 finalists selected, Irene was one of the artistes that performed but during the performance, her cheek bu.ms went on the loose, she has since been very careful that even while in the US a few days back, the Gyobera singer hit the pool in shorts....
the Bikoola singer who was in the company of Leila Kayondo later got the courage to put on a cool swimwear, but she still had a sarong wrapped around her..
Meanwhile, her fans have assured her of the support when she eventually decides to launch her maiden concert.
Tuesday, June 23 2015
Irene Ntale's cheeky b.um bu.m went on the loose as she performed at Kampala Serena Hotel on the night the 'beauty queens' were unveiled. Apass and Irene Ntale were some of the stars that performed but the Gyobera singer did show off a little bit of what her mama gave her.
She accessorised the black leggings with an orange top and completed it with silver heels. The fans were on her case and this is what the 26-year-old had to say in response;
"People easily and often will judge you without knowing who you really are and what you stand for!!! That should never stop you!! Hear it, Shake it off and continue chasing your dreams.."
Her latest song, Bikoola is doing well ahead of her maiden concert slated for August 28, 2015. Unfortunately for her, that is the very day Konshens will be battling with Busy Signal but the Olindaba singer is determined to take on the two Jamaican singers.
Music: Olindaba, Gyobera, Kabugo, Nkubukinze, Stay With Me
Irene Ntale collaboration songs:

Irene Ntale and Chameleone are done with their collaboration song. Irene Ntale has been on UBC and NTV stations to premiere the 'Easy' song.
Her concert will be held on Aug 28, 2015 at Hotel Africana and the 26-year-old says that she will be having more music between now and then.
As the old guards are in auto pilot, the new artistes seem to be taking center stage. Gyobera was a serious hit for her last year and it's one song that is likely to have a longer shelf life.
She celebrated her birthday yesterday at Hotel Africana, which happened to be David Lutalo's Akantu concert graced by literally all artistes not forgetting the heavy turn up.
And today, Irene Ntale was among the artistes that performed at the #Shareacoke back to school bash at Kati Kati

The Gyobera singer, Irene Ntale, showing off her tattoos. The one on the right upper arm was added recently while the anchor tattoo on the left has been there for some time. This is how Irene has decided to celebrate the new year. it's not yet clear where the inking was done.
2014 was a good year for her and 2015 is likely to even be better, the sky is the limit for the Olindaba singer. On August 28, 2015, Irene will be having her first concert at Hotel Africana that will see her perform her old and latest songs that include Easy, a collaboration song with the music doctor, Jose Chameleone.
Ono Omwana, Addiction (a collabo with Bebe Cool), Katambala, Remote Control and Stay With Me to mention but a few are the other songs by the singer, song writer and guitarist.
Irene seems to have learnt a thing or two from the old guards, she is promoting her concert date 8 months before the d-day, between now and August 28 is enough time for both the artist and the fans to prepare way in advance.

Secret lovers, that's what they were!!
Seeing them together, one would be inclined to think that the two guitarists were working on a collaboration song that will be way better than Beera Nange, the song that introduced Tonix to the Uganda music scene, but in actual sense, Tonix and Irene Ntale have been an item, secretly though for close to a year.
On December 18, Irene got a shock of her life when she bumped into Tonix with a Muyenga based old mama kissing, confirming the rumors she was being told all along that Tonix was cheating on her. "How could you do this to me," Irene asked.
Tonix was lost for words as the cougar furiously asked Irene who she was...It took the intervention of the Cayenne security guard to calm the situation down.
The Gyobera singer drove off in her Rav 4 as the Mulamwa singer continued with his lyrics of "Oli ku mulamwa girl like the way you take it down .....take it down, Mulamwa girl the way you put it down.." which also happens to be the cougar's favorite song from Toniks.
Three weeks later, Irene bumped into Tonix at the Naguru based Panamera bar and she told him that unfortunately, they will have to end it right there for reasons best known to him.

The Gyobera singer, Irene Ntale is in studio with the number one music doctor, Jose Chameleone working on their next track, Easy. The Swangz Av. signed singer has already two songs with Bebe Cool, Love Letter and Addiction.
Other songs by Irene Ntale include Onomwana, Olindaba, Smile Uganda among others.
The issue of doing a collobaration song with Jose Chameleone has been a tricky one. Melody, Iryn Namubiru, Leila Kayondo are some of the few artistes that have had that chance, and now Irene Ntale joins that line up.
Last week, they were in Kawempe recording the video for the Easy song.
Saturday, August 23 2014
Guitarist singer, Irene Ntale, (23) of the Gyobera fame was yesterday live on BBC Focus on Africa programme. The Olindaba singer could not hide her excitement.
"Banange I can't believe!! I have just arrived at BBC!!! My Hair & makeup done now !! Interview is in a few mins!! Am excited and nervous!!! Banange hooooo...."
During the show, Irene revealed that this was her first time to perform outside Uganda. The show host went on to ask; You are Uganda's rising star, why do you think you are growing so fast?
"First of all, the music I do is what Ugandans can relate to. I do love songs, club kind of music. Im just happy for the support and love that they are showing me."
"You were amazing, loved your performance and I enjoyed your interview, " one said.
It's quite amazing just how far Irene Ntale has gone in very short while on the Uganda music scene. She is behind tracks like 'Love Letter' and 'Addiction' which are collaboration songs with the Love You Every day star, Bebe Cool. Other songs include; Katambala, Smile Uganda.
Irene Ntale will be performing live tonight in London at the 2BeLoved Gala - Tara Hotel. Comedian Anne Kansiime will be hosting the show.
Friday, March 07 2014
Irene Ntale is slowly but surely taking over. If you love 'Stay With Me' and 'Nkubukinze' which was her very first studio single, you need to try out 'Smile For Me Uganda'.
A nice voice coupled with her versatile style, 'Smile Uganda' could be the best song most music lovers have listened to this month. A few months back, Tusker Project Fame judge, Juliana Kanyomozi, said that Irene was promising and through her music, you can't fail to notice that she is a force to be reckoned with.
'Smile For Me Uganda' remix is a reggae rendition which will surely get Irene to the top of favorite artists lists for many fans out there.
Tonight, she will be performing alongside Jackie Chandiru at Fusion Auto Spa doing most of her hit songs that include Love Letter which she did with Bebe Cool and tomorrow, on The International Women's Day, Irene Ntale will be part of the line up of female artists to perform at Garden City Roof Top. Jamaican star, Nyanda Thorbourne will be the top performer of the night.

Irene Ntale is the new artist on the music block signed to Swangz Avenue and trust Bebe Cool who is quick at identifying talent, they have already done a track together. On Wednesday, Irene and Bebe were shooting the video for their latest track, Love Letter.
If you've watched or listened to her first studio single, 'Nkubukinze' which was released late last month, you will notice that the guitarist and songwriter has talent. Interestingly, top stars like Juliana Kanyomozi and Iryn Namubiru have already appreciated her music. Appearing on Radiocity FM last week, Juliana told McKenzie that she is promising after listening to her track that was #18 on the countdown.
Getting such remarks from a Tusker Project Fame judge and more so Juliana is one way of knowing that you are on the right track. A tweet from Iryn Namubiru to Ntale last month indicates that she equally appreciates her music. 'Im loving your vibes', Iryn tweeted.
A section of forever upcoming artistes are certainly not happy about this given the fact that Irene has just landed but she is already doing so well in terms of vocals nebigenderako..!
