Singer Phina Mugerwa aka Masanyalaze on Saturday treated young school girls in Iganga to a whole fun-filled dancing session.
Phina who is increasingly taking up the role of an ambassador to promote values among Ugandans, shared the platform with Miss Uganda as they addressed young school girls on what they needed to do to succeed in this male dominated society.
Phina who was invited by the Balunywa Foundation to talk to girls about teenage pregnancies told them that the music industry brought fame, however, it also brought problems to young people if they did not know what they wanted.
Phina said that there was a tendency within society to get attracted to music artists because music can be exciting and those who sang were celebs’ but knew many girls who had been used and dumped just because of the excitement that music brings.
She urged girls to enjoy music but at the same time, keep self-respect by not yielding to sexual demand of those of the musicians and those who dated and took them to the shows.
Phina said it was possible to pursue a music career without losing your dignity as a young girl.
Known for her rare dance strokes, Phina did wriggked her body for the audience and caused uproar.
“I overheard some women say they had been told that Phina’s dance strokes were computer driven,” says Prof Waswa Balunywa, the founder of Balunywa Foundation and Principal Makerere University Business School (Mubs).
He adds: “But now that they were seeing the real person, they believed that Phina had immense talent.”
