Today (August 9th, 2017) Marks exactly two years since renowned Ugandan musicians Maurice Kirya and Elvis Kirya better known by his stage name Vampino lost their mother Sophie Baguma Munobi.
Madam Sophie (like she was popularly known) succumbed to cancer on August 9th 2015 at Mulago Cancer Institute.
Sharing an old photo of himself with his late mother in a touching post via Facebook, Maurice Kirya revealed that he misses her very much and wishes she were still alive.
Read Maurice Kirya’s full post:
“It’s two years today since you left us, it’s the norm to say you are in a better place but I just wish you were still here, and not in pain.
I would be a mess if it wasn’t for the wonderful upbringing I had, even when we had not much, you made life better for us through your teachings, kindness, persistence, humor, and a couple of lashes (many) on my bum, your cooking and of course, the music.
There is so much I wish I could have done for you, so much that I can do now, and so many things to say,…people i want you to meet, and mistakes i have done, wish you were here,…you would calm the storm that I carry in my chest, I guess here comes another song for you on the album. ?
Rest in peace Mom.
Forever loved, forever missed.
Sophie Baguma Munobi
1st •Jun•1956 — 9th •Aug•2015”
