Ali Nabattu Naira alias Naira Ali, is one of Uganda’s vocalists who are under-celebrated.
Naira Ali is immensely talented and those who have an ear to her music will agree to that. ExposedUganda.com caught up with this songbird to find out what she’s up to lately and here is what she says about her music and love life.
“Naira Ali is a Ugandan vocalist born from the ‘enjovu’ clan. She is also a mother to a beautiful eight-year-old daughter,” the singer said.
The ‘Sikyalinda’ singer remains among artistes that have remained peripherals of the music industry. Her other songs like ‘Nakupenda’, ‘Binyuma’, ‘Masala’, ‘Shy girl’ and the most recent one ‘Serial Killer’ will have you nodding in the affirmative.
Asked when she started music Naira Ali said “I have been singing professionally since 2015 and so far have two ten-track albums. I’m currently working on my third album.”
She has also done a few collabos including one with Ziza Bafana and the current one with talented American Rapper called Kanin titled ‘Black is Beautiful’.
Asked about her love life, the songbird, who said she is single, reminisced that “ I always dreamt of and had a huge crush on Navio, but he is now married so he’s definitely out of the question.”
Divulging more about her love life and the picture she shared recently on Instagram in which she intimated about introducing some dude, Naira added that; “I’m simply living my life, I’m not any of that and I don’t think I need any of it right now.”
This comes after she updated her social media with a picture in which she is seen lovingly hugging a yet to be identified dude which she captioned; ‘After the struggle, omwana ngenda mwanjula,’ although this contradicts what she earlier said in the interview about being single. Anyways, let’s see how it all plays out for this diva after the struggle.
She also came out to clear the air about her relationship with music promoter Charles Oryem aka Sipapa by saying that “I have never been in any kind of relationship with Sipapa and I will never be. No offence.”
Amidst this COVID-19 pandemic, Naira Ali is lucky to have started circulating her music to online platforms despite the fact that she wasn’t 100% there.
The pandemic has been a blessing in disguise as it has actually helped her become serious with her music career and strategizing on online marketing. Her music is now on all online platforms and she’s happy to say she’s earning from it.
Talking about her future plans, the sexy songstress said “I hope that in five years’ time my music will be heard and seen by fans all over the world and I will be dubbed the ‘Best Female African’ artist.”
She also urged all upcoming artistes to always follow their dreams, work hard, pray and work on improving every single day.
Naira Ali said she is currently having the time of her life in the U.S.A, where she went for vacation.
