By Ronnie Mayanja ~ Iryn Namubiru made the long awaited stop over in Boston to launch her new ‘Begombeko’ album. The event held at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Cambridge was sponsored by Keenote Entertainment and drew revellers from Boston and beyond. Iryn first rose to fame in 1999 together with Juliana Kanyomozi her former school mate at Namasagali College, when the two formed part of the very first R&B all girl music duo called I-Jay.

Soon after the release of their album, Iryn left for France and the group disbanded. She later took some time out from the music scene and started a family.

In 2006 she released her most acclaimed album ‘Nkuweeki ‘. This marked the turning point and began her fast rise to become one of the best female musicians in Uganda today. Iryn Namubiru has released several successful songs over the years that have included simbalala, lwaki onzanyirako,

Y’ono, Bonna Obasinga ” Begombeko”, ” Birowoozo”, which have earned her several leading awards in the Ugandan music industry.

Iryn is married to a french man Julien Groult and together they have 2 sons. Iryn Namubiru was Uganda’s PAM award winner in 2006 with her ‘Nkuweeki’ Album.
