Steve Jean discovered Cindy Sanyu back in the day through the Coca Cola real stars where she emerged among the top contenders along with Kefa Mwesigwa and Dorothy Bukirwa. Although she didn’t win the competition, Steve went ahead and worked with her on Coca Cola Popstars before recruiting her in Blu *3, a musical trio that had Lillian Mbabazi, Cindy herself, and Jackie Chandiru. The rest is history.
Earlier this week, the two got to work together again during the Club Beatz at home where she was the lead actor of this particular edition.
With Club Beatz giving a platform to burgeoning artistes, Vivian Tendo was the first to step on stage and she performed her ‘Hajjati wa Hajji’ a song that made it to the countdowns back in 2019. She also did ‘Gwe Wange’ and ‘Mu Kaati’ before Douglas Lwanga, the event emcee introduced Cinderella Sanyu on stage.
Having done this for so long, it was going to be an exciting performance from the self-proclaimed ‘King herself’. It was indeed a smoothing start from her, starting with ‘Dilemma’ a song she did with Bobi Wine and Mr. G, following it up ‘one and only’, ‘Faded’, ‘Sunset’, and ‘still standing’.
The mother of one then briefly jumped into covers doing Beyonce’s ‘Hold up’ before jumping straight back to her original compositions. ‘Too much’, ‘Ayokyayokya’, ‘Tempo’, mixing in ‘I’m blessed’ by Mr. Vegas and ‘Heads high’. ‘That girl’, ‘Romantic Call’ and Beenie Man’s ‘King of da Dancehall’. Now, these are classic songs that few can pull off but Cindy killed it.
Cindy, unlike on previous editions performed with her band which gives her age over other artistes. The deliverance, back-up acts, and instrumentalists were all on point on this edition of the Club Pilsner organized event.
