The party was an invite-only affair and attracted a host of celebrities from the Ugandan entertainment industry.

The trio, consisting of Tori (Victoria Nalugwa), Eyla (Damalie Nalugwa), and Treezy (Patricia Debra Nakalembe), have been together for seven years, pursuing their musical dreams.

They met and bonded over their shared passion for music and, shortly before the COVID-19 lockdown, decided to pursue a record deal. Their perseverance paid off when Fenon Records took them under their wing.

For the past three years, Warafiki has been undergoing intense training in vocals, stage performance, and overall stage presence, preparing them for the rigors of the music industry.

Their hard work culminated in the release of their debut Afro-Pop single, "Bwekati," produced by the legendary Steve Jean along with Legend P and Joel Keys.

While "Bwekati" showcased their Afro-Pop abilities, the girls are keen to point out that they are versatile and not limited to one genre.

The release party for Tetubafanana offered a glimpse into the group's talent and the promise they hold.

Guests, including established singers like Levixone, Jowy Landa, Nandor Love, Zuli Tums, DJs like Fikie and Bobby, artiste managers, and media personnel, were treated to an exclusive first look at the video. Despite the short notice for the invites, most attendees adhered to the black dress code, although a few seemed to have come straight from work.

The party kicked off with Warafiki taking the stage, introduced one by one. The crowd erupted in cheers as they launched into their first song, "Bwekati," setting the bar high for the evening.

The energy remained electrifying as they performed a selection of covers, culminating in a special moment when they invited Zuli Tums on stage for a performance of his song "Oluvanyuma."

The much-anticipated premiere of the Tetubafanana video was saved for last. After the video played on the big screens, the reception was overwhelmingly positive.
