In the comment section, someone asked her to invite Spice Diana. She responded: "Good idea!"

Winnie, born Winifred Byanyima, is the wife of Kizza Besigye, the former president of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC). They have been married since 1999 and they share a son named Anselm Kizza Besigye.

Meanwhile, Winnie Byanyima wouldn't be the first high-profile figure to show interest in Spice Diana's music. Former Vice President Gilbert Bukenya has hung out with her and attended her shows.

Bukenya and music are inseparable. He has attended several concerts and coughed up millions of shillings to buy CDs when they were still popular.

The former vice president ponied up Shs10 million to Iryn Namubiru when she sang a song in honour of his mother. Namubiru, who is a longtime friend of the former vice president, said she initially didn't bargain for payment, so she received the money as a thank-you.

That she had only asked for money to pay Paddy Man, who produced the song, Nince Henry -- who wrote it -- and the crew that filmed the video of the song.

The song is titled Nabulo, the last name of Bukenya's mother, Francisca Nabulo, who died in 2012 at the age of 87.
