Last night Liquid Silk Nalya held yet another edition of the famous Unplugged Sn 2 show with Iryn Namubiru as the guest performer.
The “Nkuweki” songstress delivered a remarkable vocal experience and the crowd
responded with birthday cake and cash.
Iryn kicked off her live performance with “Mba Nesanyu,” a mellow ballad
that was a huge hit in the 2000s. She continued with her long list of songs
to an engaged crowd that kept asking for her to repeat the songs.
The “Kabi Ki” star, who donned a silver jump-suit and a red blazer hit
every note on-key with her live band performance — defying all talk of her
being down and out.
Iryn was surprised in the middle of her performance with a birthday cake
that was delivered and cut by her on set. We learnt later that the cake was

As if this was not enough surprise, some ba-summer who had enjoyed the
music decided to express their gratitude with their wallets. The unknown
ba-summer moved to the front and in a pompous show of wealth only
synonymous with Nigerian ogas, dished out money. In fact, one of these
ba-summer went ahead to dish out 20,000 and 50,000 notes to each member one
of Iryn’s band.
The crowd cheered on as they watched the spectacle unfold. Iryn later
swooped in and reclaimed the spotlight before crowning the night with some
of the song that her fans had asked her to repeat.
