The former members of the legendary Eagles Production band, comprising Mesach Semakula, Haruna Mubiru, Charlse Sekyewa, Fred Seruga, Ronald Mayinja, and several others, are reportedly planning a reunion.
The group recently convened at Papaz Spot in Makindye on March 17, 2023, to discuss the possibility of working together again and to show their support for Mesach Semakula’s upcoming concert scheduled for May 19, 2023, at Kampala Serena Hotel.
During the meeting, the members emphasized their long-standing friendship and willingness to collaborate once again. They expressed their gratitude for the valuable lessons learned from one another and their collective eagerness to work together. It is said that they spoke at length about the good times they had while they worked together and the memories they shared. They also discussed the future of Ugandan music and the role they could play in nurturing and mentoring the younger generation of musicians.
“We have always been united despite our busy schedules,” affirmed Geoffrey Lutaaya, who was one of the key members of the group.
Haruna Mubiru added, “Although we have pursued individual projects, we are all still connected. We have always been supportive of one another and our reunion is a testament to the bond we share.”
Catherine Kusaasira, who represented Fred Seruga at the meeting, said, “We are a family, and I am grateful for everything they have taught me. Their guidance and mentorship have helped me become the musician I am today.”
Eagles Production was established in the 2000s, and its core members included the late Fred Maiso, Mesach Semakula, Fred Seruga, Ronald Mayinja, Geoffrey Lutaaya, Catherine Kusaasira, and others. Prior to this, they had formed the Gebros band in 1993, which later disbanded, and its members were absorbed into the Diamond Production band in 1997.
The band’s notable songs include Tukwegomba Bangi, Abamanyi Omukwano, ebituwasiza Abakyala, necklace, ekimuli kya Roza, Nsasila, and numerous others, which remain popular to date. Their music had a unique sound that was a fusion of Ugandan traditional music, soul, and R&B, which resonated with a wide audience. The reunion of the former members of Eagles Production has generated excitement and anticipation among their fans, who hope to see them perform together once again. The reunion also offers an opportunity for the veterans to pass on their knowledge and experience to the next generation of musicians.
