Have you ever imagined your favourite news show being anchored by a celebrity? Well it happens every weekend on Urban Television! This week’s news anchor is the talented songbird and former Blu 3 member, Lillian Mbabazi.
Lilian Mbabazi is a Ugandan based R&B artist formerly of the group Blu 3. Lillian started doing professional music in 2003 after the Coca Cola Pop star competitions that led to the formation of Blu 3. She found musical success with the group winning the Best East African Group in the 2005 KORA Awards.
In 2010 she embarked on a solo career and has had successful songs like “Vitamin” with Weasel of the duo Goodlyfe Crew, “Kawa” and “Danger”. The talented artist has since then gained ground as one of Uganda’s best female artist because of her rich, soulful, and powerful vocals. Her musical style is described as a cross between R&B / Soul tinged with African and Western musical influences. She has collaborated with Goodlyfe Crew, Navio (rapper), AY, P-Unit and Kitoko.
In 2014, she was one of the featured artists in the second season of “Coke Studio Africa. She has recently been signed to the Deuces Entertainment group. This creative musician is definitely one who is set to offer her fans so much and therefore definitely one to keep a close watch on this Saturday’s TNRCelebrity Edition.
