According to Pr. Augustine Yiga who responded to Dembe FM's Kasuku Live program's call said that the song was done by a one Winnie Kayesu who later went to Rwanda for over four months, the time there was no video for the song.
Efforts to get her to do the Bibuuza video hit a dead end and that is how Hajat Madina came into the limelight. All this is coming out at the time when Hajat Madina had just quit the Revival band owned by Pastor Yiga and Maggie Kayima of the 'Nabbi Omukazi' fame.
Interestingly, a yet to be released song by Winnie Kayesu dubbed 'Sirina Buuba' was sampled shortly after 'Bibuuza' and *cough* there was no difference in the voices behind the tracks.
Its not clear where this leaves Hajat Madina who had become a one hit wonder courtesy of the song whose only contribution was to appear miming in the video. Pastor Yiga concluded by saying that the song will now be performed by Winnie Kayesu and not Hajat Madina.
Hajat Madina was a back up vocalist in Bebe Cool's Gagamel Crew before joining the Revival Band which has made her popular through the 'Bibuuza' hit. She has already told one publication of how the ownership of the Bibuuza song is set to change.
A similar scenario happened to the Wafagio gal group with their 'Mukidongo' hit which was being played by the new group members after the original members decided to quit and form the Krystal babes.
Controversy just, talk of a Hajat being an active member of a born again church and performing a secular hit.
