On Wednesday, while the rest of the country enjoyed the Independence Day holiday, songstress Rema Namakula officially introduced her fiance to her parents.
Social media was buzzing with photos from the ‘kukyala’, the Buganda traditional ceremony where the bride-to-be introduces her lover to her Ssenga (auntie). This also happens to be the event where the dowry is negotiated.
At the ceremony, Rema wore a couple of gomesi attire as per the tradition. She later changed in different dresses. Her newly found love, Sebunya Hamza, equally looked elegant in her maroon jacket and traditional kanzu with a black African Kufi Kof hat. The ceremony was filled with pomp that many people felt it was extravagant.
Rema separated with music star, Eddy Kenzo in August after almost ten years together.
Below is a pictorial from the kukyala.
