Africa’s music princess and South African singer, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, has arrived in Uganda.
Chaka Chaka touched ground at Entebbe airport Monday afternoon.
“I love this place very much. Uganda is like my second home,” she told journalists at Entebbe airport.
The icon will perform tomorrow, Tuesday at ‘Enkuuka celebrations’ that will take place at Bulange Mengo.
“I’m happy to be here. It is great to be invited by the king [Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II].”
Chaka Chaka said she is a traditionalist and respects royalty.
“I come from the royal family. My husband is from the royal family in South Africa. I cut my holiday short to come here because when the king invites you, you come,” she told press.
The legendary singer will join Ugandan musicians like Eddy Kenzo, Jose Chameleone, to mention but a few.
Chaka Chaka was last in Uganda in July 2018 when she performed at the Serena Hotel, alongside singing MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine in a charity show for Uganda’s street children.
Shule Foundation was behind the charity concert whose proceeds helped set up a school to support former street children.
Chaka Chaka is popular for her Songs like “I’m Burning Up”, “Thank You Mr Dj”, “I Cry For Freedom”, “Motherland” and the ever-popular “Umqombothi”.
