TBT: We thank God for cake, what was Zuena doing with music?

Zuena Kirema

We have often heard the saying, “Behind every successful man, there is a woman.” In fact we are often told that people with supportive spouses are more likely to give themselves a chance to succeed.

When singer Bebe Cool’s wife Zuena started and dropped her music career, over 10 years ago, this must have been the same thought on her mind – to support her husband.

Zuena had a short span music career around the year 2011 that saw her release songs like Mata and Owa Boda.

The mother of five who went silent after the “hits”, by the standards of those days, later had a short stint on TV, as a host of Life Stories on NTV, an interview magazine show.

Asked why she quit music, early this year, Zuena said releasing music was just a phase in her life.

When we listen to the music right now, we cannot help but wonder what Zuena was up to.

Somehow, people loved her music. Though we think it was a good idea for Zuena to find passion in baking cake, and leave music for her husband Bebe Cool.

Here is a snapshot of some of the comments on the Owa Boda Video on Youtube.

Zuena is doing so well in the cake business.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story wrongly indicated that Zuena baked the Source of the Nile cake (below). The cake was baked by Cake Studio Uganda. We apologise for the error.
