Irene Gladys Namubiru, also known as Iryn Namubiru, is the best Ugandan female vocalist of all time, born 13th/ December 1981. She is a light-lyric voiced Afro-pop, recording and performing artist. She is also a resident of Dijon, France. She was born in the Central Region of Uganda. Namubiru attended several educational institutions, including: Bugema Adventist Senior Secondary School in Luweero District, Namasagali College in Kamuli District Airways Tourism & Hotel Institute Stendhal University in Grenoble, France. Cavendish University, Uganda While at Namasagali College, Namubiru met and became friends with Juliana Kanyomozi, another female Ugandan performing artist who was attending the college at the same time. According to Namubiru, she has always had a passion for singing since her childhood and always strove to make this talent a bigger part of her life. Her first major attempt at success in the music industry came in 1995 when she joined singers-cum-rapper DJs Ragga Dee and Molar-Messe, as the group Da Hommies, and "Joss Jjew" Mawejje as studio arranger/keyboardist, helping release a series of singles including the group's hits[citation needed] "Bamusakata", "Mukwano", "Mukyala tokaba", early 1995. Her own first single "learn to say good bue" also appeared on the group's subsequent album to great acclaim.[citation needed] Soon afterwards, she had her first stage appearance in September 1995. In 1999, she joined Kanyomozi, her former schoolmate at Namasagali College, to form the R&B all-girl group called I-Jay. In 2000, they released their first 7 track album titled WAIT which included songs Wait RMX (Ft Steve Jean), Not Good Enough, Mwana, Wait, Emirimu, Vivi LA Vi and Two To Make It True... which got moderate air play on radio stations in Uganda. Soon after the release of their record, Namubiru left for France and the group disbanded. This break up would later lead to wide speculation that the two separated on unfriendly terms, although they both denied such rumours. While in France, she formed the Afro-Soul group Nujeli together with Julien Grout and they released ENSI LP. Later on in 2006, Namubiru joined forces with singer Bebe Cool in the songs "Simbalala" and "Lwaki Onzannyilako?". However, Namubiru did not achieve widespread success until 2006 when she released her album Nkuweeki?.This marked the beginning of her fast rise to be one of the best female musicians in Uganda. Since 2006, Namubiru has released several successful songs like "Y'ono", "Lwaki", "Bonna Obasinga", "Begombeko", "Birowoozo", which have earned her several leading awards in the Ugandan music industry. In 2011, Namubiru capped her most successful year ever by winning in four categories of the 2011 PAM (Pearl of Africa Music) Awards. She won in the categories of Artist of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Best RnB Single of the Year.
