Popular female Ugandan singer Rema Namakula introduced her lover Dr. Hamza Ssebunya in a glamorous ‘Kukyala’ ceremony that was held at her aunt’s home in Naguru, Kampala on Sunday.
‘Kukyala’ is the first visit a man and his family makes to the girl’s family to make their intentions (to marry her) known. An introduction (Kwanjula) ceremony and wedding follow after.
The ceremony was attended by powerful figures including; wealthy businessman Godfrey Kirumira of the Kwagalana Group, controversial Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata Batte among others. Family members, friends and media personalities also attended the function.
Singer Rema at the function assured her relatives that Dr. Ssebunya was the man she had chosen the marry her.
This website understands that the two lovers have been seeing each other for about a year now after Rema split with fellow singer Eddy Kenzo with whom she has a baby girl Aamal Musuuza.
Eddy Kenzo apparently took long to decide on marrying her.
Rema in November 2018 released the ‘Siri Muyembe’ (I am not a mango) song that sounded like a last warning to Kenzo to wed her or sit and see her being taken by a man who is ready.
And that man finally came in Hamza Ssebunya, a doctor at Mulago National Referral Hospital.
