Many Ugandan children run away from their parents’ homes at a very tender age for different reasons, sometimes against their wish.
Singer Stabua Natooro is not any different. She also found herself leaving her parents home at an early age.
Speaking in an interview on Spark TV, Natooro explained that she left because she refused being married off at an early age by her dad.
When she turned successful through her music career, Natooro managed to improve her dad’s lifestyle and he dad apologized for wanting her married off at a younger age.

Growing up, I did not know I had the talent of singing. I participated in school events and sang at home but I did not know I was good. I realized my talent later on in life, after I had already given birth to children.Stabua Natooro
