There has been a consistent ploy by sections of the entertainment media personalities and some social media ‘experts’ to soil singer Hajara Namukwaya aka Spice Diana’s recently concluded ‘Spice live in Concert’ that was held at the magnificently extra-large Cricket Oval.
This they do, over a few glitches, but with emphasis on her ability or inability to sing over a live band. The issue was exuberated by a statement released on her social media handles over the same issue that read as follows; “My concert was too big and expensive for haters to handle. I understand your pain mbu live band tebyanyumye. Did you expect me to sing like Celine Dion? I am Spice Diana or you expected a semi-live like your other….” She went out and roared.
She added; “You can listen to my recorded songs on YouTube if you wanted perfection. Meanwhile, it was my 4th concert so my gadgets came expecting me to sing like I did. That’s why a Spice Diana fan will always turn up and enjoy me. Contented and not bothered. So y’all witches byabasaze. Okay talk about the numbers, the stage, lighting and costumes…. You can’t coz everything was 10 over 10 minus nothing. For the first time in 6 months have had some good sleep let me go back to sleep again,” Spice Diana charged.
For starters, one may wonder why the sexy singer who is currently living her moment is bothered to continuously explain herself to the naysayers. Whereas she is seen to have come out on the defensive over the same. The ugly unwanted truth is that Spice Diana, having staged her first ever concert at the mammoth Lugogo Cricket Oval, excelled beyond any rookie musicians’ expectations at that same venue. She might have been the principal and signature brand climax at the show thus would have been expected by some people to excel on stage and reverberate expertly while at it. But this is simply asking for too much.
Owing to her minimal experience in the performance history in the Ugandan Music would have been lauded for having managed to at least deliver against all odds, as a female singer. Like many other singers the world over, one singing over a live band is serious business that may require a ton of decades of experience to aptly be executed to the dot. It is the reason as to why many in the industry opt to have ‘ghost’ lead crooners who do the actual vocal magic behind the stage whilst the artiste plays a woozy role that will not be noticed.
With her management having overlooked this aspect, which many of these ‘experts’ who, most have never even been behind a microphone even whilst at elementary school, are having a field day at attacking her person. Many, if not most of them have no moral or music chord history to put the young lady at ransom, save for the limited ‘experience’ on the job that they seem to harbor as clout to authority.
Mind you, many of these people did not attend the concert but have continued to rely on the live-TV or social media handles that they watched to discredit and malign Spice Diana. For one to receive a quality sound using the above at their convenience, would surmount to a judge requiring a raped victim to prove their prior virginity.
You cannot compare Spice Diana to the likes of Winne Nakanwagi aka Winnie Nwagi or the Juliana Kanyomozi’s of this world who also would be overwhelmed by circumstances if it was their maiden career concert on a big stage. One might heap the blame on whatever glitch that there was at the concert on her management, or even the hired service providers and let the glory basking Spice Diana to enjoy the best time of her new career. Spice Diana, welcome to the world of a stadia performer and may the next time be better.
