The second season started streaming on January 4. Nisha Kalema, one of the program's producers -- said that the addition of new stars is aimed at elevating its appeal to a broader audience.

Some of the new big-name actresses that are in the second season are former Miss Uganda Stella Nantumbwe and singer Rachel K (real name Rachel Kiwanuka).

Meanwhile, Mya, real name Edith Namuleme Baganda, had disappeared from the public eye for years since cutting short her music career.

In the latest episode of Conversessions, Lilian Mbabazi noted that she and the other original members of Blu*3 -- Cindy Sanyu and Jackie Chandiru -- had not been in touch with her, which is why they weren't sure whether she would be willing to participate in their joint concert which is slated for Women's Day, March 8, 2024, at the Kampala Serena Hotel..

"Mya on the other hand has not been in contact with any of us for a minute and I feel that it would be nice for her to be a part of the concert and it's coming very soon in March... it's a good venture and it's something that will empower more people," said Mbabazi.

The trio announced their concert after performing together for the first time in many years on Thursday, December 14, 2023, at the Protea Hotel Kampala Skyz in Naguru, Kampala.

That show, which they dubbed The Blu3 Reunion, was sold out and Cindy Sanyu said it was an activation for their major concert that is set for March 8 at the Kampala Serena Hotel.

Blu*3 was formed by renowned producer and entertainment entrepreneur Steve Jean when Sanyu was 17, Mbabazi was 19, and Jackie was 18. Jean managed them under Fenon Entertainment.

The divas met during the Coca-Cola Pop Stars and after the competition, which was held in 2005, they teamed up to form Blu*3.

However, the group didn't last long after Cindy was fired two years later and they brought Mya Baganda to replace her and rebranded to Blu3 (without the asterisk). The new trio was also together for a short while and they decided to go solo.
