A reunion would be great...just to say bye to the brand Blu*3 - Cindy Sanyu

Dancehall maestro Cinderella Sanyu, better known as Cindy, has said reuniting the former Blu*3 singers would provide a lot of opportunities, including a decent bye bye to the fans of the group.

"The way that we broke off, it was just not right. We left the fans hanging," Cindy said in a Wednesday morning phone call with this reporter.

"Yes, so, a reunion would be great... just to say bye to the brand Blu*3 and do it the right way... and then also it would be good business."

The 'Mbikooye' singer was the first to leave the all-female group in 2008, a very bold move considering they had already registered a remarkable footprint in the music industry as a unit, having been formed in 2004 after winning the TV show Coca-Cola Popstars.

In their founding year, they recorded an album dubbed 'Hitaji', which had hit singles like 'Hitaji', 'Frisky' and the afrobeat 'Tomalaako'.

This was followed by a successful concert held at Lugogo Cricket Oval that very year and a video of 'Hitaji' scooped the Pearl of Africa Music Award for Video of the Year.

When she left, the remaining crew members, Jackie Chandiru and Lillian Mbabazi, picked Mya Baganda to replace her. They would also move on two years later to kickstart solo careers.

On July 23, Lillian Mbabazi tweeted to her over 125,000 followers, asking "are ya’ll ready for a BLU3 Reunion?"

According to Cindy, the trio is aware of the reunion but they are still in talking stages.

"It's on the table and we are talking about it. There is so much involved, so I wouldn't want to say more than that now," she said.

"But we are having meetings. Our managers are having meetings, and it's a possibility."

Asked if there was something specific they were considering, she said: "We haven't yet arrived at anything, but we all agreed that we need to do a Blu*3 reunion because there has never been anything like that in East Africa."

Contacted by this reporter for comment, Mbabazi said "we are not talking about that yet."

Appearing on Spark TV on Tuesday, Chandiru was optimistic about the group's potential if they teamed up for a project.

"With the experience we have, the three of us, you can't put us in a studio and think we'll spend a lot of time on a song," she said.

"We'll be in and out in a short time. We have grown in our minds and we have also developed talentwise."

While the group lasted only four years together, their talent is still appreciated even as they continue to work on solo projects.
