For some time now, rumors have always circulated about how there is bad blood between two of Swangz Avenue’s singers. These are Priscilla Zawedde aka Azawi and Veronica Lugya aka Vinka. Despite both artistes and their label claiming all is well, it seemed otherwise at Azawi’s recent concert at Lugogo Cricket Oval.
The My Year crooner received overwhelming support from almost the entire industry. A number of artists such as Fik Fameica, B2C, Ykee Benda, Apass, Winnie Nwagi, Sheebah, Juliana Kanyomozi among others came out to show huge support to the hugely talented songstress.
From the time the concert was announced months ago, several artists have helped to advertise it. These rallied upon fans to come out in huge numbers and support Azawi. However, of all the artistes that rallied support for Azawi, Vinka wasn’t among them. She didn’t make a single post about this concert. Not anywhere on nher social media handles.
This is despite her being in the same label as Azawi. The Love Panic singer was sometime ago questioned during an interview with NBS After 5 why she hadn’t yet advertised for Azawi.
Vinka said that she had done so through her Instagram stories. First and foremost, IG stories last just 24 hours and not everyone views them. This was therefore bizarre that she failed to even at least show support towards Azawi via social media.
Prior to the concert during rehearsals, Azawi was only spotted with Azawi during these sessions. Then came the concert day and still Vinka was no where to be seen. Busy!!!! We don’t think she would be so busy for a concert of a label mate and fellow woman. Azawi showed up on stage with Winnie Nwagi as her supporting act.
The self styled Firebaby really put up an electrifying performance as if the concert was hers. And still Vinka was no where. All this leaves a number of questions in the air. This scenario is something that has always been raised by the public on how Swangz Avenue plans to manage all these three artists without jeopardizing their interests and goals.
Questioned about why she had a concert before the other two artists, Nwagi and Vinka, Azawi said that everyone has their own targets. Nwagi on the same topic too said that her concert will be coming soon.
She went ahead to compliment Azawi saying that the singer has had an amazing two years. Therefore her having a concert earlier was well deserved. It should be noted that Azawi joined Swangz Avenue much later than Vinka and Nwagi. Vinka had been part of the label first as Irene Ntale’s manager.
She transitioned to a singer after Ntale left the label and found solo success. However, the emergence of Azawi has surely overshadowed everyone at the label. Marriage, birth and COVID-19 all took a toll on Vinka and she’s no longer the budding singer she was a few years ago.
