Lydia Jazmine finally arrives

Ten years in the music industry, Lydia Jazmine had achieved it all. A number of hits in her catalogue, some awards along the way and the recognition as one of Uganda’s best female artistes. But the puzzle was still incomplete. Jazmine had never had a solo concert, despite previous attempts.

Last Friday, her dream came true when she successfully had her maiden concert at Africana people’s space.

Being a celebration of ten years in the game, Lydia Jazmine came guns blazing. She performed to people’s expectation, impressed with her outfits, changing not less than five times and got deserving support from the hundreds in attendance. Other supporters also included fellow artistes who collaborated with her on stage and those who supported her financially by paying for tables.

She had three sessions in which she did different songs. During the first session, she performed some of her earlier songs including Nkubanja, Masuuka and Omalawo among others, leaving the stage for fellow artistes like Pia Pounds, Lilian Mbabazi, Toniks and Henry Tigan.

In the second set, the 33-year-old came with a different style, doing mainly collaborations that included Same Way with Geosteady, Empoole with Feffe Bussi, Goodnight with Rickman, Singa with John Blaq and No letting Go with Beenie Gunter, who had just returned from exile in United Arab Emirates.

She also did You Know, her first hit alongside Rabadaba with a Saxophonist because Rabadaba is apparently in the United Kingdom as well as You and Me alongside Michael Ouma since Daddy Andre was unavailable.

During the second session’s short break, Hajjati Sofie Nantongo and Chance Nalubega used the time to work the crowd with their songs. Nantongo impressed with Binyuma while Nalubega excited the crowd with Abateesi remix as well as Dear Wange, among others.

In her last session, Jazmine did songs like Olindaki, Omalawo and Hit and Run among others, thanking the crowd for not disappointing her. She also thanked her family for allowing her to chase her musical dream as well as her sponsors and promoter for believing in her.
