Irene Namatovu Confirrns She Quit Singing Band Music

Musician Irene Namatovu has revealed that she quit doing band music. This is despite the style introducing her to stardom and all the success she’s achieved in music.

Namatovu said that from now on, she will he doing cultural music which she classified as Afro-pop. Apparently Irene also found that her new style of music is more commercial than the former.

However, she credited her former type of music for getting her to where she is. And for those planning to do it as they emerge, she advised them to make sure it relates to the current generations.

“I won’t be doing band music anymore as I have discovered that my calling now lies in cultural music/afropop. This style is more commercial than band music. However, I’m grateful for where band music has gotten me. Although the money wasn’t always enough, it gave me a name. For those upcoming artists, make sure the band music you do relates to the current trend of listeners. There you can get something from it,” said Namatovu.

Meanwhile she co-owns a band, Da Nu Eagles with husband Geoffrey Lutaaya who also concentrated more on politics.

Band music has for a long time been dubbed the real music of Uganda alongside Kadongo Kamu.

It was at its epitome in the early and mid 2000s with the likes of Eagles Production, Afrigo Band all in its prime. These however parted ways, aged and some singers died. All this led to the downfall of band music and besides, it’s seen as an outdated genre especially by the current music lovers.
