Uganda: Wedding - It Was Love At First Sight for the Lutas

Isaac-Windsor Luta, best remembered during his days with Pride band, is a son to Hajji Suleiman Byekwatso of Ishaka/Bushenyi and the late Azidah Nanyonga of Mengo.

Last month [December 29, 2012], he walked down the aisle with his long-term companion Susan-Brenda Ndagire Kizito, at Old Kampala Gaddafi mosque and hosted their guests at Silver Springs Bugoloobi.

Susan is daughter to Sam Kanyoro Nsubuga of Walthamstaw, London and the late Musawo Edita Nanyanga of Mbuya.

Isaac works with a transport agency, while Susan is an events manager and hotelier. The couple has six children - three boys and three girls.

How they met

They met in September 1999 in Frankfurt, Germany at a Ugandan get-together party, where Isaac's sister Sarah Birungi - currently living in the UK - introduced them.

"It was love at first sight; we both knew right away that we definitely wanted to grow old together and have been living together since 2000 in the city of Munich, Germany," Isaac recalls.


"Our dating was actually co-habiting at the same time because we moved in together so fast to secure our stay in Germany and also minimise the costs. But the proposal was not that hard on my side since I had been in the music business. I knew which songs to sing to her and I also wrote her a song called Brenda -Love Mood which I guess helped in sweeping her off her feet," said Isaac.

Any special gift?

"The greatest gift Susan has ever given me is the kids and I treasure them so much. I didn't know how else to appreciate her for the labour pains other than putting a ring on her finger and swearing everlasting love for her," he said.

Isaac said although they already have six, he hopes to get one more at a later stage, that is if Susan allows. He said the one thing he likes most about her is the fact that she understands him better than anybody else in this world.

"She's my best friend and most trusted companion with a strong motivation impact on my life."

For Susan, the thing she likes most about Isaac is his love for his children and selflessness when it gets to playing the father role even with the fact that Isaac was raised by a single mother without a father image to look up to.

Why not get married in Germany?

"We decided to come back and marry in Uganda because we want to raise our children with the love and pride of being Ugandans even if they were born and bred abroad. Such ceremonies are supposed to make it easier for our children to associate themselves with Uganda other than that war, crime, disease and poverty propaganda that is being fed to them though the western media," Isaac explained.

"Right now, we have put the wedding behind us and we are back to our normal routine and working hard to expand our investments in Uganda," he added.
