This week on Thursday, budding female artist, Spice Diana, organised her maiden Extended Play (EP), StarGal listening party at Cubana Bar and Lounge, in Munyonyo… and it was a huge success.
The highly billed listening party brought together members of the fourth estate, musicians and fans, who got to watch the artist perform songs from her 6-track StarGyal EP, live on stage. How Spice Diana managed to sweet-talk established artists like Bebe Cool, Juliana Kanyomozi, Eddy Kenzo, King Saha, Halima Namakula, Joanita Kawalya, Irene Namatovu, not forgetting the Katikkiro of Buganda, Charles Peter Mayinga, who came through and graced her party, is something to fuss about. We all know how artists have ‘zalawo’ and big egos.
The highlight of the event was singer Sheebah Karungi’s least expected attendance, given the fact that she and Spice had not rubbed shoulders for ages.
Over the years, Sheebah and Spice Diana have always avoided each other’s space, with their fans, the Sheebaholics and Spice Gadgets, often clashing on social media as they fight for their respective artists.
It became an open secret that the pair had unhealthy competitions with gossip columns pointing it in the direction of a battle for supremacy.
At some point, Spice Diana lost steam and begged Sheebah to ask the trigger-happy Sheebaholics to cease fire after getting battered properly. The then bloodthirsty Queen Karma gave her a cold shoulder as she ignored her plea.
However, the two celebrated female singers put their egos behind them and squashed their beef.
It is reported that Spice personally invited Sheebah to attend and she obliged. The two shared the stage midway Spice Diana’s performance and made up for lost time.
