Hopefully you are aware that Africa's top trio of women performers, the amazing BLU 3, launched their new album, Be Free, last Friday night at KCC Ground, Kampala. Hopefully you were there. If not, you really missed out. My beautiful friends did not let down the audience with their bar-raising show. BLU 3 were not nominated for the MTV Africa Music Award for Best Live Performance for nothing. These women are FABULOUS and know how to command a stage and work an audience. Not to mention, the the voices of Lilian and Jackie are as lovely as the women who possess them. The show on the whole was great. I've been to a live show or two in my time, and I don't remember ever having as much fun as I did at BLU 3's show last Friday. Besides the girls, the other acts, especially Nameless, Navio and GNL , were full of energy and gave fantastic performances. These three guys earned at least one new fan in me.

Now, if I were Gossip Girl, you'd all have received a message like this the night of the show:

Spotted, Juliana K snatching chairs at a VIP table where the occupants didn't even recognise her. Refusing to accept that this was not her night, she exercised her divatude, refusing to give up her and her escorts' seats to the rightful patrons. While her flame might not be burning so bright these days, it's not completely extinguished. Homegirl remained cool as a cucumber, pretending anyone telling her what she didn't want to hear didn't exist and got management to set her up a personal table up front. Love her or hate her, that's a real diva.


A few last words about the show: DJ Benny D sucked and was a waste of time. Not. Entertaining.
