On April 29th, 2018, Ugandan Hip pop star Ernest Nsimbi, stage name GNL Zamba wedded his wife Tamar Miriam at Cielo Farms vineyards in the rich-laden area of Malibu, California in the United States of America.
Contrary to what many think or assume, GNL met his wife in Kampala.
“We met on a Friday at a very popular bar in Kampala. I had just concluded a country tour and was celebrating with friends. Earlier that day I had sworn that I was going to be single forever (that kind of determined swear where you lick your index finger and pretend to slice your neck with it) But the heavens had different plans. I met Miriam that night, the lyrical genius told the Observer.
“The next day I had a meeting at an events company and ran into her again. The next day we ran into each other at a gas station and planned a real date. We realised we were neighbors and also had mutual friends in Gulu.”
“Our connection was instant; we started dating exclusively and have been together since then. The friendship and chemistry were natural from our first conversation, and there were no games; just a genuine bond of people from such different worlds who somehow seemed to get each other.”
The wedding was attended by 120 invited guests, consisting of only close friends and family member.
“Our wedding was a fusion of Jewish and Baganda culture, with extra touches from Africa and America,” GNL noted.
