Bootylicious model, Doreen Kabareebe has ended her modeling career and her last fashion campaign will be this Thursday at the 2nd Fashion Re-Union Party that will be held at Club Silk.
Doreen says her time is up though some say she is no longer the model she was five years back as she was tending to a plus size model. The modeling industry needs new faces and shapes too.
"The given time set for my modelin' career is gettin' done....my last show will be at Club Silk this Thursday 20th June show casin' with Pamela collections....see y'all there...its time to switch. For all designers, models, photographers, promoters and other people I've worked with, my luv for you will always be there.....thnx, " Doreen noted on her wall.
Doreen will now concentrate on a number of things that include completing her graduate studies this October, been very busy serving in church let alone her political ambitions. Ohh she also manages Lugogo Tennis Complex.
Some of the designers who found her a force to be reckoned with when it comes to lingerie modeling were of the view that it won't be easy filling the gap she has left.
The Ghetto gladiator is in Istanbul Turkey where he's held performances for the Ugandans there but unfortunately for him, he's been caught up in the demonstrations by activists around Istanbul's Taksim Square and Gezi Park.
Yesterday, Riot police was forced to fire water cannons and tear-gas to disperse large crowds and somehow, the tear-gas got to Bobi Wine and his wife Barbie who were busy chilling at their hotel room.
The couple decided to hit the streets as part of their Istanbul tour where they met some of the protesters who were fleeing from tear gas, but according to him, the smell of the tear gas was reminding him of the chocolate they had just enjoyed a few minutes back.
"If am to compare this to Kaihuraz tear gas, u would agree with me that this Turkish tear gas is just smelling like chocolate."
Much as the tear gas was next to chocolate, this did not stop him from wearing masks. Now the big question is, Is it Bobi Wine who has a strong reistance to tear gas of its just a light version of tear gas that was being used!

It's official, former Bukedde TV presenter, Miles Rwamiti is now on NTV and his first show was last Friday. The sizzling show, Koona Ne NTV is designed to pull viewers from WBS TV and Bukedde TV all combined. Before crossing to NTV, Miles was hosting the 'Omubimba' show, so it was evident from the callers that most of his fans had followed him.
Koona Ne NTV show is a serious threat to WBS Straka's show. However, during the show, Miles confirmed he had not forgotten where he was coming from when he thanked all those on Bukedde, which of course was understandable bearing in mind that this was his very first show since quitting Bukedde TV.
The show kicked off with four top videos in a row, 'Coccidiosis' by Bebe Cool, 'Badilisha' by Jose Chameleone, 'Magnetic' from the 2013 BET Nominees followed by Wabula Mwana Gwe Olina Obubadi by Dolla the Captain and then, headed for commercials.
Shortly after the commercial break, viewers started calling in and the very first caller was from Bwaise talking about 'Majja' which should be a slang for money and happy to see Miles on TV once again. Other callers were babes who preferred to express themselves in English, but Miles Rwamiti Apuuli reminded them that this was not the Expozed show.
The VJ of the night was Baby Love from Guvnor, so after the first three videos, Miles was forced to ask him to queue in the likes of Catherine Kusasira and Mathias Walukagga officially tapping into the Bukedde following. Later in the show, he invited King Michael and Eddy Kenzo who explained why he ordered the fans to fight the police.
'NTV Akawungeezi', 'Tuula Tuwaye' were the known vernacular programs and now Koona Ne NTV joins the wagon. Is NTV taking the path of Bukedde TV!, Only time will tell.
South African based Ugandan tycoon Ivan Semwanga has honoured his pledge of Shs6m to the Ugandan cranes for the two goals that were scored by Emma Okwi and Tony Mawejje this afternoon at Mandela National Stadium. That amount could have been more than that had the Uganda cranes scored more goals.
The tycoon was at the stadium watching but thirty minutes into the game, Angola had one goal as most fans were giving up on blowing their vuvuzela's. "This is disheartening," he tweeted. In the second half, the Uganda Cranes charged against the Angola team with Emma Okwi scoring in the 57th minute.
Kampala city was erupting into a wild jubilation for the first goal and then Tony Mawejje added a second goal 13 minutes to closing time sending fans inside the stadium and the neighbouring areas into frenzy.
"Thanks Uganda Cranes for the effort you put in to win the game -We are also confirming that me and King Lawrence have fulfilled our pledge to the Uganda Cranes, " the Tycoon confirmed before inviting fans to meet him and the Uganda Cranes players at Guvnor for the Champagne and Gold party.
Last Thursday was the Hawaii Party and Goodlyfe's Weasel birthday at Club Venom. Real name Douglas Mayanja Seguya also Jose Chameleone's young brother celebrated his birthday though the question on everyone's mind was how old he was and how many kids he had at that age! The hardcore rapper was in the company of another babe, who was not Carol.
Maisha Dancer's Shamim Namawa grabbed the birthday boy and the two hit the dance floor pulling some raunchy moves amidst cheers from some guests. Other artistes who attended the birthday bash included; Toniks, Mun*G, Atlas and Rabadaba.
It should be noted that a week back, the Goodlyfe Crew were in South Africa, and among others, performed during the Big Brother live eviction show, Did a better recording of the Magnetic video that will be able to blend with the international market now that the Goodlyfe crew are BET material.
The Goodlyfe crew duo also performed at several private parties for Ugandans in South Africa like Katsha and tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga among others.
On Sunday(16Jun), Radio and Weasel will be performing at Lido Beach which is right before Spenah Beach on your way to Entebbe International Airport and later in the month, they will be heading to L.A to see just how far they can go with their BET 2013 nomination.
Miles Rwamiti has revealed the reason he bid farewell to his Omubimba show on Bukedde TV. The TV presenter will start on his latest show dubbed ''Koona Ne Rwamiti'' on NTV this Friday starting 10:30pm.
Finally, we are here! Koona Ne Rwamiti, a new exciting music show hits the NTV airwaves this Friday at 10:30pm. Don't miss the latest music videos, engaging live interviews with your favorite musicians, sizzling hot gossip, your interactive comments from social media and much more, " Miles noted on his wall.
By virtue of the title, this will be a vernacular show. Bukedde viewers who were following Miles closely are likely to cross over with him. Former Bukedde presenter, Richard Semakula aka Soda Wa Bakyala was equally happy for him.
"Africa, eviction party has not been thrown yet, I will inform you on the location and the special guest of mine that may attend." That guest is none other than Koketso.
LK4 is back in the country and if all goes well, Koketso will be here with him if the above tweet is anything to go by. Isaac Lugudde has been having fun with Koketso in 'Emerald house' after Africa decided to end their honeymoon in the Big Brother-The Chase house.
LK4 seems to be in love and did not want to leave South Africa. "This is probably the saddest day since my existence. I love South Africa and u treated me well. Koke, I'm missing you already and hurting. I will find you wherever you are and I pray Africa will witness the journey back to you as they witnessed the beginning."
All that LK4 is saying is that; it's not over yet between him and South Africa's Koketso Modiba. However, the South African beauty is acting smart and not tweeting so much about the LK4Love. Could the clip of LK4 talking to Natasha about his strategy of being close to South Africa(Koketso) and Nigeria(Beverly) housemates haunting him?
Is that the reason LK4 says his special guest 'may' attend, only time will tell. Meanwhile, some of their fans who are believing them have this to say: "I like both of you and hope you get married and have lots of kids."
Another wrote: "LK4 please don't hurt her, if it was a game please let her go brothers like O'neal, Hakeem, Bimp, Sulu and Bassey all liked her." Over to you LK4.
News just in indicates that singer Iryn Namubiru has lost her dad. Mr. Mubiru Fredrick sadly passed away this morning in Mityana. This is very sad bearing in mind that Iryn has for the last one month been battling with the Japan drug case. Just yesterday, the songbird had just met Kim Ueno for the first time since her arrest in Japan last month.
According to Iryn's former manager and brother, Thadeus Mubiru, their dad has been battling ailments for quite sometime. He will be buried tomorrow at 4PM.
Yesterday, songbird Iryn Namubiru was breathing a sigh of relief following the arrest of the Japan based promoter, Kim Ueno on Monday night. Donning a grey denim shirt, Hakim Tumwesigye aka Kim Ueno looked unbothered while smiling as Iryn in the company of her former manager Thadeus Mubiru narrated these words at the Central Police Station.
"Kim you know very well about this incident, it's ruining my life, everybody is saying I'm lying. First they said I was a drug trafficker and now they say I'm pulling public stunts.
You knew very well I was arrested and detained and you didn't come out to tell anybody, he left me in trouble there, I found that so selfish, Please, at least acknowledge that you asked for the suitcase and you asked my manager to carry the suitcase which had the drugs and I will be cleared."
"There are cases regarding movement of drugs in which Kim is a prime suspect. We have two options to consider, one of them is charging him within our courts here, the second option will be handing him over to the Japan police, " police spokesman Iddi Ibin Sekumbi explained.
Of the restaurants and bars around the Namugongo shrine, Asylum bar is one place you expect to find cele-beer-ties serving folks with cold and warm beer.
Last Saturday was another great night for revellers at the Namugongo top hang-out joint as Bebe Cool and wife, Zuena Kirema mixed tots as they served guests.
Beer guzzling fans were seen making several rounds to the counter just to get the opportunity of being served by none other than Zuena who did her thing under the close supervision of the 'Coccidiosis' singer.
Some fans who included foreign based Uganda Cranes stars were heard saying that if these two were the bartenders for the spot, it would be one of the best places to hangout in town. This was the first theme night dubbed ''Star-Tender'' which will see stars taking over the bar as the bartender's for the night.
Half of the proceeds that night were donated to 40-40, an orphanage in Kyebando the following day. Bebe Cool and some of the directors for the bar were seen delivering items and having photo moments with the kids.
The 30-year-old Ugandan rep in the Big Brother-The Chase and also the very first Ugandan to be evicted from the reality TV show was in for a rude awakening when his landlord, a lady told him that rent for his apartment had been increased by Ugx200,000/- approximately $80.
"After just two weeks out of my house. I come back and inform her I will be moving back in and she wanted to increase my house rent by a stunning 200k! (+/-USD 80!)" Denzel demanded to know why all of a sudden rent had increased!
The lady told him in his face: "Oh, I know you have money, I saw you on tv in South Africa"
This is when Denzel woke up and realised that he was not in the house anymore where the only thing to do was to relax in the jacuzzi, sleep, drink, dance and massage.
It's not clear if Denzel's eviction to her meant that the Ugandan housemate had won but at least she is sure it was Denzel she saw on TV who must be loaded by virtue of the way he was playing the game.
His close pals advised him to just apply the avatar or better still do the massage moves that he pulled on Kenya's Huddah Monroe while still in the Big Brother House.
Following that advise, Denzel just laughed it off. "Haha, thanks guys. Always good to be back home. Fuh real! Once you get used to the dust...you cant live without it! haha"
"Yes. The drug lord Kim Tumwesigye was arrested last night. I could not rest, I want to believe in our Justice in Uganda. Iam sure there will be many to swallow their words back!!!!" Iryn tweeted.
Kim Ueno is the Japan based promoter who had invited Iryn Namubiru for a show in Japan and left shortly after for Uganda on learning that the songbird had been detained at Narita airport.
Iryn has always maintained that it was Kim who was responsible for the illicit drugs and that she had nothing to do with them. Thadeus Mubiru has since been fired and replaced with Balaam after whatsapp messages revealed that he was working hand in hand with Kim.
Kim was equally a wanted man in Japan based on the statements the 'Tebiba Bingi' singer made on being arrested. Details of when and where Kim was arrested are still scanty but will be availed as soon as we land on any info.

Its 77 days to go with 24 housemates left in the Big Brother house but unfortunately, no Ugandan on board after Denzel got booted on Martyrs day and just yesterday on Heroes day, LK4 was evicted together with his girl friend Koketso from South Africa.
Last week, five housemates were up for eviction but LK4 emerged with only one vote that was obviously his country, Uganda followed by Koketso who had two votes, one from her country South Africa and Angola.
Denzel was lucky to get two votes after South Africa voted for him courtesy of the good 'deeds' that our boy LK4 had done for their gal but this time around, LK4 and Koketso were equally up, so South Africa had it's issues to deal with. Hakeem emerged the highest with 6 votes that included one from Kenya, Feza had three votes and Dilish had three votes.
Just wondering what happened to the East African alliance! Kenya could not vote for a Ugandan(LK4) or Tanzanian(Feza) who were up for eviction and instead voted for Hakeem Mandaza from Zimbabwe, we only hope their booby Annabel can play the game beyond the next two weeks, otherwise the eviction of model Huddah Monroe simply marked the start of problems for Kenya.
We only hope LK4's remarks after the Saturday dance party did not cause Africa's wrath that eventually led to his eviction. Meanwhile, his hopes of docking at Koketso's station were dealt a heavy blow when IK played a clip that revealed how the Ugandan lad was only playing the two housemates from Nigeria and South Africa.
Its now clear the relationship between Koketso and LK4 won't last after all now that he was only playing the game on the advise of his mother. It's funny how Nigeria's Beverly and South Africa's Koketso were vying for each other's blood when the basket baller was using it as a strategy.
City socialite and lingerie guru, Jackie Klein is worried about giving birth and won't be doing so anytime soon based on what she told her close pals this morning.
"Beautiful people, some of my friends and relatives have given me the privilege of being in the labour rooms while they push it still hasn't changed my mind about having kids and I love kids. I fear the pain, simple is that normal?"
This revelation came after he close pal who gave birth to a baby girl a few days back.
91.3 Capital FM Am-Pm presenter Flavia Tusiime told her that: "Oh! its not that bad! the hardest part is carrying that bump for nine months, the push push is a piece of cake try it the experience is unforgettable, I want that for you dear."
Guvnor Publicist Pherrie Kim joined the conversation with this contribution: "I'm TERRIFIED of it too...but now I'm in a position to clench my teeth and get it done...all for the military man...C-section and Epidural exist though...Jackie, we'll be fine...LOL"
When Pherrie proposed those options, Jackie Klein said that if she is to go for it, she would opt for the epidural option which is an injection into the back that stops any pain being felt in the lower part of the body.
Jackie came to fame as a result of her lingerie fashion shows.
"It's five years since I found my other half. I love U Daniella," Chameleone tweeted as he shared a flashback wedding photo. Unfortunately, Daniella is not by his side as he has a show in Dallas at Nai Sports bar and Grill today.
"On this day in Bbina Church 5 years ago, we sealed a marriage, we made vows and committed to that statement: "In times of good and bad" . True we have shared the greatest moments of our lives together, and the worst ones too and so we shall continue till death does us part."
The music heavy weight continued with the wedding anniversary message: "Daniella, you are more than a rib to me, you are my best friend, my consultant, you are my life. Thanks for loving me, thanks for tolerating me, thanks for being the greatest mom I would ever wish for my children and thanks for always standing by me."
The 'Badilisha' singer assured Daniella of how he will only keep falling in love with her as they grow old. "Happy 5th wedding anniversary. I miss you and our kids so so much.... As we grow older together, As we continue to change with age, there is one thing that will never change. . . I will always keep falling in love with you....."
Being an artiste he is, you could easily mistake the message for lyrics to his next hit, but then again, Daniella deserves it all looking at how the music doctor has poured his heart out.
Singer Iryn Namubiru has announced that she is now under the management of Balaam Marketing Agency effective May 10, 2013. Minutes after making the announcement on her wall, her now former manager, Thadeus Mubiru followed with this post:
"Pending police investigations, I found it necessary to step aside as Iryn's manager." Iryn was cleared of drug charges after spending 21 days in Japan and on return at Entebbe International Airport, Thaddeus and Iryn's mum were among the people who received her.
Balaam who happens to be Iryn's promoter in Uganda was also very instrumental at the time when she was detained in Japan. The authorities in Japan got Iryn a lawer but Balaam and the Fusion Band Boss, Kasami wentan extra mile to hire a private lawyer for the 'Tebiba Bingi' singer.
That was not all, Balaam also went ahead to organise the special service at All Saints Cathedral that was held on May 22 together with KFM's Roger Mugisha. It's therefore not surprising to see that Balaam is now the new manager for Iryn Namubiru.
The news of former Big Brother Amplified star, Sharon O and boyfriend Ronnie Mulindwa splitting is no longer shocking as it has always been the case at least for the last three years.
Unlike Denzel who spent 7 days in the house, Sharon O spent 91 days in the Big Brother Africa house gaining a lot of exposure in the process. For example, she did frequent Nigeria, Malawi and South Africa for personal projects long after the show had ended and yet this wasn't the case before featuring on reality TV.
"Am always pretending that everything is alright. Becoz everybody else thinks am fine. But u my love should know better coz behind my smile if u look deep into my eyes, u'll see my pain, u'll feel my hurt." That was Ronnie's post sometime last year but the Obsessions boss was quick to distance it from the woes in his relationship.
However, the latest is that the two lovers have now confirmed they are in a relationship but a complicated one. On May 31, The Mpola Mpola singer changed her status from 'In a Relationship' to 'Its Complicated'. A day later, Ronnie followed suit by confirming on his wall that his relationship to Sharon O was complicated.
One Tadeo commented: "I saw It Coming Ron, bt Just Be Cool And Leave Everything To God.....if she was created 4u, she wl be urs bt if not, she wl never be my friend."
Following the meeting at All Saints Cathedral, Iryn's Manager, Thaddeus Mubiru has apologised to the songstress for the mess that led to her arrest in Japan last month over drugs.
"I Thadeus Mubiru, Manager to Iryn Namubiru, would like to apologise firstly to you Iryn, family, friends, fans and all people that stood with her during her detention at Chiba Perfectural Police in Japan for the prejudice and troubles I caused to her when I knowingly refused to reveal the vital information that could enable her early release."
Last Sunday, while at All Saints Cathedral, Iryn revealed how Thaddeus received $500 from the Japan based promoter, Kim Ueno who was behind the Japan show that never was after Iryn was arrested with drugs stuffed in one of her bags. Once that came to the lime light, Thaddeus was left with no choice but apologise.
Looks like Iryn is willing to forgive and forget as she has gone ahead to delete messages she had written about her manager earlier.
In his apology, Thaddeus also revealed why he behaved the way he did: "I learnt that Kim Tumwesigye had jetted in Uganda immediately after Iryn's detention, I feared so much for my life and became so selfish to that extent."
A few weeks back, before Iryn got into trouble with the Japanese authorities, Juliana was on most radio stations busy promoting her latest single and highlights of shows between her and Iryn that will be unfolding sooner rather than later, but its not clear if that is still on.
At that time, she had held two interviews, one on 91.3 Capital FM and the other on Radio City. McKenzie was the host of the show on Radio City and somehow, he had wanted to hashtag the Juliana show for the Twitter followers but he could not land on any authentic account.
It was during that interview that Juliana was asked about her official Twitter account and the 'Nkyanoonya' singer revealed that she wasn't on Twitter. McKenzie promised to set up one for her.
Juliana's official handle is @JKanyomozi and a week later, it has 437 followers. Juliana's first tweet was on May 28 expressing how she had gotten on board finally. "Here I am...:-). Finally!!!Lol."
Meanwhile, Iryn Namubiru uses @Irynnamubiru1 after failing to retrieve irynnamubiru from a purported fan.
Embattled singer Iryn Namubiru has lashed out at her manager Thaddeus Mubiru who she is now accusing of having sacrificed her life at a mere $500 tip from Kim Ueno. Appearing at All Saints Cathedral where she had gone, for prayers and also to thank them for the special prayers they held for her on May 22, 2013 when she was still in Japan,
Iryn and her manager Thaddeus in the company of her Ugandan promoter, Balaam Barugahara later held a brief meeting in which Iryn asked for all the communication from Kim that was exchanged prior to her travelling to Japan, but Thaddeus maintained that the only communication they had was on phone.
As the meeting and questioning ensued, Thaddeus was forced to surrender all the What's App messages that were exchanged between Kim and him. In the messages, it was clear that Thaddeus had some useful information that could be forwarded to the Japan authorities, but he did not fearing reprisal from Kim Ueno.
It was at that point in the meeting that Iryn told his manager to keep out of her business. She later tweeted thus: "My Manager could have sacrificed my life for just $500 got from Kim Tumwesigye. He had all the info about the drugs but he lied. God."
She added: "Trust nobody. Thaddeus Mubiru was ready to see me rot or die in jail just because he feared Kim would kill him if he gave info!! Unbelievable."
Iryn has been combing various media houses to explain her story to all and sundry.
As the Goodlyfe Crew did their thing at the Big Brother live show, the whole of Africa was singing along. This was more or less a Ugandan show. Denzel was sent packing seven days into the house after doing what most housemates won't do in ninety days.
This was also a blow to East Africa after Kenyan model Huddah Monroe followed shortly in Denzel's footsteps as Big Brother told of how she only had 30 seconds to leave the Big Brother House. But all was not lost as the only East Africans in the 2013 BET Nominations put up a show like no other.
Pouring their hearts out to Africa, the East Africa dynamic duo sung.."They speculate it, they vibrate it...so let me go Magnetic..." as former Blu3 member Lilian could not help but tweet to let them know of how proud she was.
Fans are now debating on whether to go in big numbers to welcome Denzel or not while others are suggesting that the welcome party for Denzel can as well be a party for all those who auditioned.
The Goodlyfe Crew will be performing live tonight at the eviction show for Big Brother Africa in South Africa. Moze Radio and former Blu3 member Lilian Mbabazi have a child together.
The question on Biggie's wall was: "Radio and Weasel will be on the Big Brother Africa stage tonight! Do you have any questions that you'd like us to ask them?"
One question from Mshana was: "We know they have been nominated for the BET Award 2013 - Best International Act: Africa which is taking place June 30 at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater. What is the secret behind this big nomination? How are they prepared to hit the Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater on that particular date? How are they prepared to win? What are they going to get outta this BET, is it money, fame, ladies, recording deals including collabos, etc?"
Another fan had a question for Moze Radio: "Your baby with Lilian was it for real or for showbizz?" Short of that most questions were not necessarily for the East African Duo as the fans seemed to be touching more on the show and who they thought would be packing their bags tonight.
Meanwhile, yesterday, 'Love Letter' by Lilian was played in the house something that got LK4 singing along but the only word he knew was Love Letter as the lyrics in Luganda were a problem having spent literally all his years in the US.
Before the Goodlyfe left for South Africa, they asked their fans which songs they would play while in South Africa and fans were mostly suggesting 'Obudde' and 'Magnetic'. Keep voting for your boy Denzel by sending his name 'DENZEL' to 7626.
Ugandan artistes; Goodlyfe Crew's Moze Radio and Weasel plus Uganda's hip hop star Navio have been nominated in the 2013 Nigeria Entertainment Awards in the category of East African Artist or Group of the Year. Other nominees in the category include P Unit, K'Naan, Fally Ipupa and Camp Mulla.
The event announcing the 30 categories was held at Euphoria Night Club in Lagos, Nigeria last Thursday. Voting online will kick off on June 28 while the main event will be held in New York City on Sept 01, 2013.
This is indeed a good life for the Goodlyfe Crew. It's slightly after two weeks when Moze and Weasel were nominated in the 2013 BET Awards under the Best International Act - Africa category, being the first Ugandan artists to at least be nominated in the Black Entertainment Television awards that will see them rub shoulders with the likes of R-Kelly at the Nokia Theatre L.A.
Just yesterday, Moze Radio and Weasel left for South Africa where they are expected to give a powerful performance at the first Big Brother The Chase eviction show that has our UG contestant, Denzel up for eviction.
The 2013 Bet Nominees, Moze Radio and Weasel TV will be performing live at the Big Brother Africa first eviction show this Sunday. The Obudde stars will perform a few minutes before we know if Uganda's Denzel who is up for eviction leaves the house or Africa gives him a chance to continue entertaining.
Confirming this development, the Goodlyfe Crew were asking their fans which songs they should be performing during the show; "We are in the Big Brother House for the first eviction show this Sunday. What songs should we play?" Most of the fans seem to be suggesting 'Magnetic' and 'Obudde'.
Ugandan artistes who have performed at the Big Brother Show include Jose Chameleone (2007), Goodlyfe and Keko (2011), Maurice Kirya in 2012 among others. The 'One & Only' star performed last year during the Big Brother StarGame being the first East African artist to perform at the Grand Finale show.
Just last week, Moze Radio, Weasel and his Norway based girl friend, Carol Serwadda were in South Africa where the Goodlyfe Crew had a number of performances. "Good things happen to good people, It's too late for anyone to stop us," The boys tweeted after confirming this development.
This week, Ghana's Selly, Malawi's Natasha, Uganda's Denzel, Ethiopia's Betty and Kenya's Huddah Monroe are up for eviction. To save Denzel, send an SMS with a name Denzel to 7626.
Chameleone is on a 'US Badilisha Tour' and while there, he made a visit to the Bruce Lee Grave site to pay his tribute to the fallen martial arts film star who died in 1973. Bruce Lee's grave is next to his son, Brandon Lee who died in 1993.
"Off to the USA for my 2013 Tour of North America...ama miss my wife, my babies Abba, Alfa & Alba. Ama miss you my pipo. But sometimes, a man got to do wat he has to do." Chameleone noted on his wall.
This coming Saturday, the 'Badilisha' singer will be performing live at Cafe Ibex in Seattle. The music heavy weight has already performed at Los Angeles during the Basoga Twegaite Convention among others. After the June 01 Seattle Show, he will be in Maine on Jun 07, and Washington DC on Jun 08.
His fans in Phonix AR will be with him on Jun 15 followed by Kansas on Jun 21 and wind up the US Badilisha tour on Jun 22 with a show in Illinois.
The star left Uganda on May 23 and landed in L.A California the following day. Chameleone was delighted to meet his young brother Pallaso to which he said; "Brotherhood is the very price and condition of man's survival." Short of that, he's met Ugandan boxer Kassim Ouma and socialite Judith Heard of Houston based 2African Gals.
On Monday afternoon, business came to a standstill on Entebbe road as Iryn Namubiru's convoy that comprised of bikes and several cars made it's way to Kampala. The procession could only be compared to that of Gaetano when he returned from the Big Brother Africa house in 2003.
Iryn has for the last three weeks been detained in Japan on drug smuggling charges but was set free after 21 days. It's unlikely that Iryn can go back to Japan in the next five years following what happened. Boda Boda riders along Entebbe road and other parts of Kampala joined the convoy doing all sorts of bike stunts.
The convoy went straight to Hotel Africana though while there, she declined to talk about what happened during the 21 days in Japan. The 'Tebiba Bingi' singer later referred some people to check her wall for the official communication.
In part of the message, she says: "I was never indicted so there was no possible trial and therefore, I never stood before the judge!! In fact there was all evidence that I was innocent." But all this was not convincing to some people forcing her to denounce her earlier plans of not talking about it. Several versions had started cropping up.
Announcing the news of Iryn's being on WBS tomorrow at 9am was none other than Straka's ex, Charles Oyimuke. In the message off his wall, he says: "Iryn Namubiru addresses the Nation live about her alleged drug charges tomorrow, Wednesday 29.May.2013 on Morning Flavor Entertainment starting 9:00am."
Season 8 of Big Brother Africa kicked off on a sad note for Zari's husband, Ivan Ssemwanga. Apparently, the South African based tycoon was all seated at his crib following the show, but the moment the second housemate was called out, he developed goose bumps.
Pokello from Zimbabwe was the first one to be called on stage and when she chose a guy to walk with to the house, it was none other than basketball star, Isaac Lugudde aka LK4 who happens to be the tycoon's rival. All he did at that moment was to switch his telly to a movie dubbed 'Temptations' which is about a young couple having problems in their marriage.
"Chillin in ma cinema room watching Temptations by Tyler Perry", Ivan tweeted to express his disapproval.
A few months back, Zari and hubby split for a few months before getting back together, but during the time of their split, Zari hooked basketball star Isaac Lugudde who kisses and tells. Isaac told whoever cared to know that the mom of three was a tigress in bed.
Isaac is now in the Big Brother house after dating a socialite and Africa at large and Uganda in particular will have to keep their eyes on the multi-tattooed guy to see if he can take up Gaetano's position of the 'Best Ugandan representative' ever in Biggie's house.
KFM's D Mighty Breakfast show host Roger Mugisha is heading to the US to chill with his fiancee Imani Genie Karungi. On May 20, 93.3 KFM and 90.4 Dembe FM both owned by Monitor Publications were switched off and since then, their offices together with the Red Pepper have been sealed off as crime scenes.
"Bags packed and ready to go. Ebintu byamwe sibyangu. Sawa ya kuyiya na kuwasa," Roger noted on his wall, implying that these issues are complicated, I better go and try out other plans and also my wedding with Imani."
Roger was among those who spearheaded the Iryn Namubiru answered prayers at All Saints church Nakasero and to this he says; "That's why we call Him Saviour! Thank you Lord for your immediate response to our prayers. This is a Facebook testimony! To God be the Glory."
However, with his bags packed and ready to reunite with Imani, he will not be here on Monday (27May) to see Iryn making her first public appearance since her arrest in Japan. Roger's buddies have however warned him not to carry anything for anyone or not even dare go to Japan because anything could happen.
Diva Iryn Namubiru has been cleared of drug smuggling charges after 21 days of being detained in Japan. "I am out, free, innocent, clean, no criminal record. I will tell you all as soon as I get home on MONDAY, God bless you all." Iryn commented on her wall.
Iryn was arrested early in the month when she went to Japan for a show but on arrival at Narita airport, her luggage was discovered to be having illegal drugs that were given to her by Kim Ueno's relatives in Kampala. Iryn thanked all her fans, friends and family for their prayers.
"Only the truth, prayers and your love could set me free. Iam out innocent and clean, Thank you all." The prayers at All Saints on Wednesday worked after all, the diva is free and ready to rock Kampala like never before. Fans continue to thank her promoter, Balaam Barugahara, and her boss Capt John Kassami of Fusion band Entebbe that were able to meet the costs of the lawyer.
Fans are now planning on a massive welcome for her on Monday. She has also just learnt of Martin Angume's passing and passed on her sincere gratitude to the beareved family.
Update - Multi award-winning star Juliana Kanyomozi will on Saturday, 25 May 2013 perform at Club Submarine - Dhow Palace Hotel. The event had earlier on been scheduled for (18 May) but postponed to this Saturday.
Juliana was one of the artistes who turned up for Iryn Namubiru's special service at All Saints Cathedral on Wednesday. However, during the service, Rev. Diana Nkesiga forgot and referred to Juliana instead of Iryn as she said a prayer. The 'Give it to Me' singer will rock her fans in Dubai with her latest music and other old tracks that everyone knows.
Some of Juliana's hottest tracks include: 'Nabikoowa', 'Diana', 'Nkyanoonya', 'Iam Ugandan', 'Omutima Oguluma' among others.
A few days back, Juliana shot back at those who were linking her to Kenya's Tusker Project Fame judge, Ian Mbugua that the two were to wed end of this month. In a message off her wall, she simply said that they should not bother her.
"Just arrived in Dubai. It's ON!!!!! Can't wait to see all the lovely fans tomorrow. Yaaayyyyy." Juliana confirmed after arriving in Dubai.
The 2013 BET Awards Nominees, Moze Radio and Weasel of the Goodlyfe Crew have travelled to South Africa for a show that will be held at Club Africa in Pretoria on Saturday, May 25, 2013 a day before the launch of Big Brother The Chase.
The opening show of the Big Brother Africa will have opening acts from award-winning artistes from South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya as 28 housemates will be unveiled to Africa this Sunday. Kenya's Stella Mwangi aka STL, Nigeria's Don Jazzy, D'Prince and South Africa's Mafikizolo are some of the artistes to perform during the night of the launch.
The Goodlyfe Crew have a reason to be at the launch venue now that they will be down in South Africa which is likely to get them more opportunities now that they will be representing East Africa at the BET Awards in June.
In a message off their wall, the duo notified their fans that: "Off to South Africa to represent UG, Big Brother." but it's a known fact, no approved housemate does that, so are the Goodlyfe Crew representing UG by watching the show live from South Africa or otherwise?
All this can be cleared by watching the show live on channels 197 and 198 on DSTV or watching live on the DSTV website.
The city sabavulu has rightly earned his name on the social scene as a local super promoter. He is on record for having not staged a show that flops with his latest being the Badilisha Concert.
Balaam Barugahara is Iryn Namubiru's promoter here in Uganda, However, his efforts in helping out the 'Begombeko' singer who is currently detained in Japan are being hampered after a fake facebook account was created to take advantage of Iryn's situation.
In a message exposing the scam account Balaam warns: "Hello Friends avoid posting on Balaam account with photo in an Orange t-shirt (like the one above), it's a fake account created by some unknown thug, my account starts with Balaam and it has no profile photo."
"This morning the fake Balaam posted collecting money for Iryn Namubiru . We are not collecting any money for Irene, I have paid all her first legal costs, so no need of fundraising now that the legal costs are fully covered."
Following the above post, the purpotedly fake account responded with this message: "I don't understand why someone would make a FALSE account, with <<No profile picture >> yet send out messages threatening me! Nzeno Tebanzanyisa especially when it comes to my fans.."
Balaam also told a member of the former Bad Black gal brigade, Rasheeda Masudi that the owner of the fake account had added him as a friend, so all are advised to be on the look out.
Local dance-hall singer Peter Miles Kanyike and Jamaican reggae star DeMarco real name Collin Demar Edwards have released a joint single dubbed 'Blessings'.
The duo fostered a good relationship in their first collabo. Ragga vocalist General Levy, and Jamaican stars' Wayne Wonder and Konshens have already communicated to Peter Miles saying that they are loving the Ghetto Youth Fi Di Ghetto Youth vibe.
The 'Blessings' video was premiered on the NTV Exposed show last Saturday. The 'Nice and Polite' singer has a song with Elephant Man. Meanwhile, DeMarco will be performing live on June 08, 2013 at the Carnivore Grounds in Kenya.
SOCIALIST Zari Hassan has thrown a lavish birthday party for her mom Halima Sultan Hassan sealing off a section at luxurious Serena Hotel in Kampala. The 32-year-old and her hubby Ivan Ssemwanga flew in from South Africa for the birthday event on Saturday (18May13) that saw a dozen close friends and family enjoy a constant flow of red wine and cake.
A source tells UgandaOnline.Net that the amount of champagne that went into the room was just enough to spoil Zari's friends and mom. Ivan was seen handing a present to his mother-in-law. Zari who went back yesterday could not hide her excitement after the birthday bash. "Had a great evening celebrating mom's Bday. Love her lots. Thanks."
Model Doreen Kabareebe and Jose Chameleone's wife Daniella Atim were spotted together for the first time since 2012 when the picture of Chameleone touching the models naked bottom became viral. The sight of the pic was too disgusting for Daniella to the extent that she warned Doreen to keep her 'curves' off her man.
What turned out to be surprising to many last Saturday was to see Doreen and Daniella standing side by side with no animosity in sight. The two were attending the marriage service for Esther Akankwasa that was being held at Kansanga Miracle Centre. Doreen was one of the maids.
Based on the killer pic that saw Jose wrap his hand around Doreen's bare bottom and whispering sweet nothings, Daniella was the last person that was to stand next to the video vixen cum model who was more than determined to have the music doctor. Now that the two were never seen together, all sorts of rumours have emerged as to why.
Doreen got wind of this and very quickly dashed to her wall with this posting: "Guys, u shd all learn to stand in whatever situation coz the truth always comes out. God never sleeps....Lights out, Prayers up!....the world's negativity makes any wise person stronger en more focused. Blessings to y'all," she concluded.
In her words Doreen seems to suggest that Daniella had no problem with that act as she is seen wearing a smile in the photo.
Red Pepper is now a mainstream newspaper having cut out all its sex oriented content. Lovers of hyena stories that have been running in the tabloid for the last twelve years could not believe it when they bought the newspaper only to notice that their favorite column was missing.
In fact those who missed out on the May 16 announcement of the rebranding news thought they had bought a different newspaper but on looking closely, they noticed it was the new Red Pepper that is competing directly with the old guards, New Vision and Monitor.
Analysts say the Red Pepper could have kept on doing what they do best now that they were having a dedicated following that had gotten used to their style.
Chances are the Red Pepper has given way to the Hello tabloid which is weekly and before we know it, the Hello tabloid also owned by Red Pepper Publications will be a daily assuming most of the roles that were being played by the former tabloid, Red Pepper.
A comparison between the new Red Pepper and the old one reveals that the language has changed so certain words won't feature in the new Red Pepper, adverts for gaining inches, breast and hips firming have all been dropped.
A letters section has been introduced in the new version of the Red Pepper.
Today is glamour gal Esther Akakwansa's wedding day. The 21-year-old who is also a former Cyclone dancer will be getting married to her Germany based pensioner Nico Damminger at a yet-to-be disclosed location.
Model Doreen Kabareebe and former HB Toxic member Hellen Lukoma are among the bridesmaids. Esther's dream of dating a Mzungu has now turned into reality. It should be recalled that sometime back, Bad Black and Esther happened to be at Casablanca bar enjoying their lager before things turned ugly for Esther.
Bad Black threw a glass at Esther on suspicion that she was poaching on her man, David Greenhalgh. The bizzare mishap left her nursing a bloody cheek and chest. They later settled the matter out of court and Esther was given Shs5m in damages.
Nico has been doing badly with Esther not by his side at least as seen from these messages: "Yeah I breathe for you...yeah I burn for you... And yeah I live for you....!Loving you can't be wrong, even though You're not here, won't move on...when you find true love, it lives on....your face is like a Melodie...kuchi, kuchi...and it won't leave my Head...every time I close my eyes, it's a paradise...no one compares to you." are some of the messages Nico has been sharing with his love, Esther.
After the wedding, Esther will be joining Nico in Germany. Meanwhile, a few days back at Nawab restaurant, Nico, Esther and Esther's mom were busy having lunch together but Nico was so close to his mother-in-law as they took pictures. This could not be possible in most cultures here in Uganda.
Former Dubai based promoter Sheila Patience's baby is finally out. This is her first child with Big Eye, a boy they've named Bryton Dayyan Qeem. The couple now has three kids.
Sheila is a renowned female music promoter who used to take Ugandan artistes to perform in places like Dhow Palace Hotel and Submarine Club among others. While in Dubai, she used to stay with her Zungu hubby and father of her two kids until they split. She then relocated to Uganda where she hooked the 'I'm Already Booked' singer, Big Eye and the two have been living as man and wife.
The 'Sula Indicator' singer is so excited about the new born baby as retrieved from this post: "Here comes Sir, Britton Dayaan Mayanja Owokusatu.Thank u God for this gift,Thank u my Sheila,Thank u our parents from both sides,Thank u everyone for praying for us good always. Let's join our hands together en celebrate 4 our new born boy child."
He was all set to launch his album on May 10, 2013 but due to Sheila's condition, he was forced to cancel just to be around his baby mama. Congs to the couple.

Goodlyfe's Weasel and Norway based Ugandan model, Carol Sserwadda confirm they are engaged. On Tuesday, the very day Weasel and Radio were nominated for the BET 2013 Awards, Carol changed her facebook status to Engaged. The engagement is done and the introduction ceremony is next though no date has been set for now.
One Kenneth who was their in person confirmed this development: "Engaged! !!!!!!! Abalala mwesotinge please kuba kyawedde ddaaa Aaaaah. .. will let u know about da wedding date.... byanyumye." Yes, Its a done deal, we had fun and the rest of the gals out there should sort themselves, Kenneth said.
It should be recalled that the two met during the Goodlyfe Easter shows in Europe last month. During that time, Moze Radio was missing Kampala but as for Weasel, he was enjoying every second of his time there. "Enjoying ma jack daniels straight with ma wife Caroline...loving it," noted Weasel in one of his tweets while in Norway.
The news put an end to weeks of speculation about the couple and their plans to marry. It's not clear when Carol came to Kampala but that was a few days back.
Weasel has been linked to many babes but he is determined to settle down given the fact that 'Obudde' as revealed from their latest album was not on his side. The duo attracted over seven thousand fans at Hotel Africana during the 'Obudde' launch, four days later, they made history as being the first Ugandans to be nominated in the BET Awards and now Weasel is looking at settling down.
One of Uganda's finest singers and city diva Juliana Kanyomozi has refuted claims that she will be getting married to Tusker Project Fame Judge Ian later this month.
When the (Ian-Juliana) rumor kicked off, Juliana simply laughed it off: "Hahaha. So now I'm getting married to judge Ian!!!!! Ha abanauganda u can yap!!!" Judge Ian who is married simply wrote: "She is worth a lot more!! will comply:-)"
This did not seem to help out forcing her to dash to facebook and issue this disclaimer:
"Hey friends, I've seen some disturbing rumours on Facebook and would like to categorically say, I'm NOT planning any wedding with judge Ian. I've also never had any romantic relationship with him and have no intentions to do so. Ian is someone I've worked with on TPF and that's it. I have a lot of respect for him as a person, fellow judge and family man. These rumours are misrepresenting and unfair."
The singer who celebrated her 31st birthday last November and city businessman, Amon Lukwago, were once the most admired and talked about couple in town before they split. They have an eleven-year-old son.
She later dated USA based Ugandan boxer, Kassim Ouma who led to the change of her name from Juliana to Jalia Kanyomozi but wapi, things didn't work out.
Juliana was also linked to Peter Miles but the 'Blessings' star simply said; they have been close friends for a while but nothing serious. Juliana now says she is not yet ready for marriage and whoever has a problem with it...'Tebankooya', meaning they should not bother me.
Jose Chameleone has given a special shout out to his former backup vocalists, Moze Radio and Weasel who have been nominated in this year's BET Awards.
Chameleone took to facebook to give his shout out to the Goodlyfe Crew: "The triumph of a son is the Pride of the father. On that note, I join the rest of the music fraternity to Congratulate Radio & Weasel on their BET nomination..you learnt from the best and you learnt well. I pray you win it for Uganda. Good luck"
The Goodlyfe Crew have been doing their thing for five years now since breaking away from Jose Chameleone's Leone Island Music Empire to form their own group, The Goodlyfe Crew.
It's not clear if Bebe Cool will congratulate the duo, but Bobi Wine is yet to do so. Meanwhile, the boys can't hide their excitement over this achievement, the first of its kind to happen to a Ugandan artiste.
Moze Radio wrote: "Let's go team Uganda. ..let's go team Rwanda...let's go team Kenya...let's go team Tanzania...let's go team Sudan...South Africa...Central Africa...West Africa...North Africa...America...Europe...Asia...Australia...let's go...B E T...is here in a Goodlyfe style...Radio and Weasel nominated for the Best International African act."
Jose Chameleone's young brother, Weasel joined with these words: "All Goodlyfe fans are BET material, we are diamonds...history made."
When the Goodlyfe Crew declared that their OBUDDE album launch was a 'Victory Party' to celebrate a win over all those that had waged war on East Africa's dynamic duo, may be, this is what they meant.
The latest info on the Goodlyfe Crew is that Moze Radio and Weasel TV have been nominated for the Best International Act-Africa at this year's Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards 2013. The award ceremony will be held at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on June 30, 2013.
Confirming the good news, Weasel said: "I told them we are a class apart...Obudde." Moze Radio simply said: "Here we go" as he shared the list of nominees with his followers.
The duo will be tussling it out with other five big names on the African continent that include: 2Face Idibia and Ice Prince from Nigeria, Toya Delazy and Donald from South Africa and R2Bees from Ghana.
The Goodlyfe Crew of Moze Radio and Weasel TV are the first Ugandans to be nominated for the BET Awards. The Best International Act in the category of Africa previous winners include: 2Face Idibia and D'Banj (2011), Wizkid and Sarkodie (2012) and for 2013, we have our fingers and 'toes' crossed for the Goodlyfe Crew.
Drake is leading this years BET Awards with 12 nominations though some fans are surprised that top names like Kelly Rowland and Brandy are missing.
The Gagamel CEO, Bebe Cool has been having a number of performances in the recent past and while on stage after he has done some of his latest tracks that include 'Coccidiosis' fans always reach out to him with paper money, coins and the likes as a way of saying Thank You.
On reaching home, the couple normally settles to count their days' earnings. Initially Zuena thought it was a different currency, but on looking closely, some of the 'paper notes' were not money but chits with phone numbers and love notes from different babes.
According to Zuena, this has got to alarming levels that she had to share it on her wall: "Ehhh gals of these days can 'dry' themselves instead of putting money in a musician's pocket while on stage they put love notes & their phone numbers bambi they don't know that we read them together & laugh off with my Bebe Cool hihihihihi."
Zuena is contemplating forwarding the details to the Abanonya program should this continue. When an artiste is performing, gals are fond of walking to them and stuffing tips in their pockets, but what shocked Zuena, the love notes were more than the money.
Zari has just undergone painful sessions of laser treatment just to get her ex's initial off her right upper leg. This comes at the backdrop of a message Isaac Lugudde aka LK-4 wrote on his wall. "You post all of your drama on facebook..then get upset when people judge you? You must be a special kind of Stupid.!"
Zari followed with this post: "Feeling sorry for that 1 damn a##hole who thinks his thoughts about u have to pop up on his timeline. Haven't u moved on yet? Its clear not! Am a million kms ahead, I see a brother still in the same spot crying over spilled milk. Its spilled, period. Get on mentally too now. Lol"
Zari is cementing her reconciliation with Ivan, the father of her three boys by removing the retired basketball star's initials from her pelvic area. Zari had an affair with Isaac Lugudde, and as a way of cherishing his love, she under went the ink pain just for him.
"Loving my new cover up tat....once it's done all the past will be covered. I should never stoop low & stupid like that again....," Zari said. Meanwhile, much as she has tried to cover it, the initials are still visible. Tattoos are permanent and relationships are not, we hope in future, Zari won't add other lovers on her body.
A friend told her: "Lesson learnt Ivan is good Dad and husband, cut the side dishes aka 'bupwachipwachi' out.
1. She was found with drugs at Narita Airport in Japan after she had traveled for a music show in Tokyo.
2. Iryn was arrested on May 03, 2013 after she was found with illicit drugs on arrival and she has since been shifted from Narita police station to Chiba Prefecture near Tokyo.
3. She will know her fate on May 25, 2013 as to whether to be charged or deported. The good news is, she could be deported or told not to go back to Japan for a period of up to 5 years or less being a first time offender.
4. Iryn's promoter who was to receive her in Tokyo flew to Uganda on learning that she had been detained, but he says, this particular travel had long been planned. Questions are now being raised, why send for foodstuffs from Uganda when you knew that you were traveling to Uganda that soon!
5. Iryn's manager (Thadeus), and the Japanese promoter (Kim Euno) are all claiming not to know about the illicit drugs, but even if they knew, would they admit.
6. Iryn has two lawyers, One that was given to her by the Japanese authorities and another, Yuko Matsumoto who has been hired by her Ugandan promoter, Balaam Barugahare at Shs52m.
7. "She will come out because she is innocent; she did not know she was carrying illegal drugs," Iryn's Japanese lawyer, Matsumoto said and appealed to her fans, friends and family to be patient.
8. According to Matsumoto in a message she sent to Thadeus and Barugahara, she says that Iryn is very tired and weak but the lawyer adds that she will be fine.
9. Hakim Tumwesigye aka Kim Ueno is required to testify and explain how he got the bag containing illicit drugs.
10. The 'Save Iryn Project' has been opened to get advice, share information and raise funds from well wishers.
As the Goodlyfe Duo were busy doing their latest collabo with Desire dubbed 'Fitting', she looked so taken up after Weasel had pulled her against his 'member'. At some point she lost her words under the guise of letting fans sing along while Weasel Manizle was feeling her curves from behind.
"We are fitting, so deserving...nze nawe we are fitting..."Were some of the words Desire was whispering to Weasel as she let him feel her ass-ets as the crowd went wild with some shouting loud with lines borrowed off Captain Dolla's hit, Emesse. One reveller noted that: "Weasel was squeezing her real tight and instead of singing, she was moaning with desire."
Meanwhile, as the Desire and Weasel were busy doing their thing on stage, Moze Radio was cheering them on that ''Mufittinga'' meaning that you are fit for each other.
At some point, Desire passively bent over for Weasel who responded by curving his back as he hugged her from behind. This was part of the Obudde album launch which saw Desire stealing the show from Kenya's Amani.
The Japan based promoter, Kim Ueno who is currently in Uganda has also given his side of the story on the Iryn drug-saga. Kim says that he is not aware of any drugs that Iryn was arrested with, instead, he is considering suing Iryn and her manager, Thaddeus for the losses he made in the project. Kim estimates his loss at about shs64m.
Tumwesigye aka Kim Ueno says that he has never spoken to Iryn. All along, he has been communicating with her manager, Thaddeus.
"I just sent someone who gave 4kgs of Maganjo posho and groundnuts to Namubiru and when Mubiru called me to ask what was in the bag, I simply told him that if he was suspicious; he should remain with the luggage and buy the stuff from somewhere else and give them to Iryn," said Tumwesigye.
Just yesterday, Iryn's manager spoke out blaming Kim Ueno's relative who gave him a parcel at the time when Iryn was dashing to the airport for her scheduled flight to Japan. She literally had no time to look through the bags given the timing and Entebbe road traffic.
Regarding his travel to Kampala, Kim noted that his Kampala trip had already been scheduled for May 07 and he has emails and communications with Emirates to prove that. Kim added that, since Tuesday, he has been trying to get in touch with Thaddeus but to no avail.
Meanwhile, Thaddeus who is scheduled to travel to Japan next week to be a witness in this case is under instructions from Interpol and police not to comment on the matter.
A rumour going viral for the last 72 hours was that One Love Beach had been attached by Equity Bank and talks were underway with Bebe Cool to buy it before the end of this month.
In a lengthy statement, Bobi Wine says this is the works of his haters who can't keep their minds, eyes and mouth off his achievements. If they are not singing about the Yacht, they are talking about the beach. Short of that, they are discussing our buildings and businesses in the hood, Bobi adds in his statement.
Bobi concludes that: "Their recent move to tarnish One Love Beach by spreading a rumour that it has been taken over by Equity Bank was poorly calculated."
Fire Base Entertainment, Fire Records, One Love Beach and Angry Management plus all other sister companies have never had any business dealings with Equity Bank. He wondered how a reputable bank like Equity could be dragged in what he termed as cheap propaganda.
Bobi reminded haters that he has been the proud face of Centenary Bank for the last six years so his bankers are Centenary Bank which in this case would be the closest to attach should there be anything to attach. He also reminded his haters of how he used to toil putting up a permanent structure on a 26 acre land while they were busy getting drunk.
The 26 acres where One Love Beach sits IS and SHALL always remain a property of the Ghetto Republic before signing off.
Following Iryn Namubiru's arrest nine days back in Japan for trying to smuggle drugs into the country, her manager, Thaddeus Mubiru has broken his silence. The manager is of the view that this whole thing is a set up.
One Alex Muyomba informed Thaddeus a few days back that Kim Ueno wanted some food from Uganda but the bag containing the food was only delivered at about 11:00am at his home in Rubaga. Thaddeus rushed with the bag to catch up with Iryn whom she found at Najjanakumbi at about 12:00pm driving through traffic to the airport for her 2:00pm flight to Japan.
Alex Muyomba who is a relative to Kim Ueno signed Namubiru's contract on behalf of Hakim Tumwesigye aka Kim Ueno. However, what shocked Thadeus was the issue of Kim not picking his calls or returning messages after it had turned out that Iryn had been arrested.
Iryn was arrested on May 03 but by May 06, Kim who was supposed to receive Iryn for her performance in Japan was already in Kampala. The next thing Thaddeus received was a text message from a third party that Kim wanted to talk to him. Friends and well wishers here have hired a private lawyer for her who has been in touch with her at Chiba Preferectural Police in Otusu Pronvince.
Iryn will know her fate on May 25, which is exactly 14 days from now as to whether she is to be set free or charged. Interpol Uganda and Interpol Japan are working hand in hand to see how best they can handle the case. Interpol Uganda's role is limited in terms of securing her release because Iryn is arrested for a crime they are supposed to be fighting.
Meanwhile, Hakim Tumwesigye aka Kim Ueno who is in Uganda will be giving his side of the story on Monday.
Something should be terribly wrong this month. Martin Angume, DJ Momo, David Bless and former Cranes striker, David Obua's mom, Filda Obua have so far died this month.
As we were getting to terms with that, another upcoming artiste, Elie Cham real name Elly Kyambadde died this morning in a motor accident. Elly was a brother to dance hall artist, Empress of the Big Massavu fame.
Elie is behind tracks like 'Kibe Sankalewa' which he did with Ronnie who is known for his Stamina dance with Eddy Kenzo. Elie was signed to the Big Talent music crew.
Friends Pay Tribute on His Wall:
"To be taken in such a cruel way, to lose Elie Cham so quickly, just devastating. In the arms of the angel, fly away from here. I know you are in good hands now. I love and miss you! Rest in Peace," one friend wrote.
I'ts such a blow to the music sector and the entertainment fraternity at large who are finding it hard to deal with the latest tragedy bearing in mind that a lot has happened in just one week.
The Obudde show was massive. By 7:00pm Hotel Africana was full with Ragga Dee, Cindy, Lillian, Navio, GNL and Desire Luzinda among others entertaining revellers before the dynamic duo hit the stage.
Kenya's Amani was there to grace the Obudde launch. Myco Ouma did his thing alongside the live band as Comedians, Salvador and Afande Kerekere did their thing. At 11pm, the dynamic duo hit the stage with the duo clad in some yellow and white outfit with a huge clock around Weasel to signal the kick off of the 'Obudde' launch.
The fans were literally singing along all songs that included Magnetic, Fantastic, Can't Let you Go, Fitting with Desire Luzinda and Kiboko Changu which are all tracks off their latest Obudde album which was also the launch title organised by Kibo Media.
The stage and lighting was provided by Silk Events. Earlier on, the Goodlyfe had told that the Obudde album was special in a way because it was a Victory party in celebration of defeating their competitors that had waged war on them.
"We are launching a full album with very good music unlike other singers who launch a single song and call themselves musicians." The Goodlyfe said. They also wondered how one can compare them with artistes who have been around for two decades.
In one of their interviews, the Goodlyfe Duo noted that they do not have any competition in Uganda at the moment because Bobi Wine, Bebe Cool and Chameleone are too old and have nothing new to offer.
Its been a week now when NTV news anchor Gabriel Epenu put his twitter tools down protesting the arrest of his better half, Iryn Namubiru. Gabriel could on average have as many as 8-10 tweets per day tweeting about issues at hand in the political circles and other trending topics but since May 02, his account has been inactive.
But today at exactly 3:28pm he managed to respond to Charles Onyango Obbo's interesting observation in which he notes that in Kampala alone, there are a record 130 sports betting shops, Gabriel added that: "Still counting" bringing the once active account back to life. His followers have been missing out on his tweets. The tweet for 'Mahogany's presidential bid come 2016 could have been a good one.
Iryn's last tweet to Gabriel was on Apr 26, and it was a romantic one. In the tweet, Iryn asked Gabriel to play some song as a way of cherishing their love. "ONLY YOU" put it on replay!!! Burn your ear, bruise your feet!!!, Iryn tweeted.
Gabriel responded that: "And it's a beautiful song...played it over n over on those JVCs :-) Thank you dear." "Only You (And You Alone)" (often shortened to "Only You") is a pop song by the Platters.
When Iryn got issues with her hubby following various compromising shots with 'Mahogany' that were all over tabloids, their affair with Franck Morell became shaky to the point of breaking. The epitome of it was when he beat her badly at a train station in Paris.
This is when she decided to come back to Uganda and has since been close to NTV's Gabriel Epenu whose actions are understandable bearing what befell the 'Tebiba Bingi' star last week in Japan. In all this, Gilbert's estranged wife, Safia Kodet with whom he has a child is having the last laugh.
Irene Ntale is the new artist on the music block signed to Swangz Avenue and trust Bebe Cool who is quick at identifying talent, they have already done a track together. On Wednesday, Irene and Bebe were shooting the video for their latest track, Love Letter.
If you've watched or listened to her first studio single, 'Nkubukinze' which was released late last month, you will notice that the guitarist and songwriter has talent. Interestingly, top stars like Juliana Kanyomozi and Iryn Namubiru have already appreciated her music. Appearing on Radiocity FM last week, Juliana told McKenzie that she is promising after listening to her track that was #18 on the countdown.
Getting such remarks from a Tusker Project Fame judge and more so Juliana is one way of knowing that you are on the right track. A tweet from Iryn Namubiru to Ntale last month indicates that she equally appreciates her music. 'Im loving your vibes', Iryn tweeted.
A section of forever upcoming artistes are certainly not happy about this given the fact that Irene has just landed but she is already doing so well in terms of vocals nebigenderako..!
The Interpol Boss in Uganda, Asan Kasingye has confirmed that Iryn Namubiru was indeed arrested in Tokyo, Japan over possession of illegal drugs.
"And since Namubiru is a Ugandan national although she holds a French passport, we as Interpol in Uganda got involved, and we are working with France to help our national out of this," Kasingye who was speaking on phone added.
"We also intend to carry out our own investigations here so that we may get to know the people involved in the purchase and parking. You may find that she could not have been doing it alone, there could have been other people in the background, so our investigations are going to involve around the whole transaction."
The issue of this parcel leaving Entebbe International Airport has left a lot to be desired. Interpol has also promised to look into it. Meanwhile, the Japan promoter, Kim Ueno whose real name is Kim Tumwesigye is believed to have travelled to Uganda on learning that Iryn had been detained.
Iryn's fans across the country and in the diaspora are still in shock over what has befallen one of Uganda's top female singer. All travellers are now having a thing or two to learn from the incident.
Kenyan female singer, Cecilia Wairimu aka Amani will grace the Obudde Album launch tomorrow at Hotel Africana, People's Space. Amani and the Goodlyfe Crew have a collabo, 'Kiboko Changu' which is already doing very well on the airwaves here in Uganda. It will be launched in Kenya today at Club Aqua Blue Lounge in Westlands.
She will then travel to Kampala on Friday Morning just in time for the evening show. Amani is one of the artistes who featured in the 'Hands Across the World' project with US superstar R.Kelly but most revellers here in Kampala still cherish her fashion department.
During the Club Silk Unplugged show, the 'Bad Boy' singer hit the stage sporting a 'dress' that revealed a bit too much. Her fans are now warming up for the Obudde launch and some have even vowed to get VIP tickets just in case the Kenyan songstress gives them a gud one on top of her thrilling hits.
Bobi Wine, Lilian Mbabazi, Myco Ouma and Washington will be the local artistes to perform. Iryn Namubiru was among the local stars to grace the Obudde launch, but this won't be possible following her arrest in Japan a few days back for posession of drugs.
Meanwhile, Moze Radio and Weasel TV spent the whole of yesteday reheasring at Hotel Africana just to ensure that they do justice to most of their hit songs that include: 'Fitting' with Desire Luzinda, 'Magnetic' and of course 'Obudde' among others.
Roger Mugisha's fiancée, Imani Genie Karungi is all set for her wedding but torn between these two wedding dresses. She was forced to reach out to a few of her friends for help: "Just wondering which one suits best for the wedding..I just need something light, simple, sleek and elegant."
Big Brother Africa 3 representative for Uganda, Morris Mugisha was one of those who advised her: "For today's beautiful bride, a light snow or off white gown would do wonders considering ease and movement. He further advised her to avoid bulky gowns for extreme comfort. Morris was giving these tips as a celebrated wedding photographer.
Most of her pals were choosing wedding gown 1. Early in the week, she left many amused with this post: "I'm 10% sugar, 10%spice but 80% a b**ch so you better be nice." She later clarified on the statement: "I have to thank God for making me a man that can handle a woman like me and that's none other than , Roger Mugisha.
Roger and Imani otherwise known as 'ROMANI' are the latest celebrity couple on the social buzz.
Two weeks back, Iryn Namubiru shared a pink poster on her wall advertising the 'Golden Weeks Holiday' show that was to take place on May 04, 2013 at Yotsukaido Cultural Hall in Japan followed by these words: "Japan, Japan TOKYO, I am bringing the FIRE OVA DEYA come May the 4th, 2013. You dont wanna miss Me!!!"
All sources seem to indicate that she was contacted by Kim Ueno, a Ugandan promoter based in Japan who also asked her to come with a parcel that had posho and powdered matooke.
On arrival at the Japan Airport Terminal, the authorities had to check her luggage like they do to any traveller but the posho and matooke found in her luggage turned out to be suspected white powder leading to her arrest. Twaibu Sekamatte, the Chairman of the Ugandan Community in Japan also confirmed the arrest.
Iryn's having a French passport made matters worse for the Ugandans in Japan who tried to establish why the 'Anyereketa' singer had taken long at the airport. She's travelling on a French passport, so as Ugandans, there is little you can do about her problems
"It's unfortunate that a package was given to her as she was heading to the airport with claims that it was posho, more so from a trusted source, so she did not suspect anything could be wrong," noted one of the relatives.
Four days later, Iryn's manager, Thadeus Mubiru has not come out with a statement on the fate of the songstress. Iryn is still in custody in touch with customs officials and Japan police. The French Embassy in Japan is yet to communicate on the developments.
Iryn has been having a series of cases in the French courts with her ex-hubby, Franck Morell, but should this turn out to be true that the Ugandan singer was arrested in Japan on possession of drugs, she could lose the child custody litigation and her French citizenship revoked.
Meanwhile, all that has nothing to do with the way Japan handles cases of stimulants smuggling, it could earn her a jail term of about 10 years or death.
Ex-model and top socialite, Priscilla Ray was spotted with Hugh John Grant an English actor and film producer recently. In one of the pics, Ray looked him in the eyes like she had strong feelings for the man who made British comedy popular all over the world, but the actor looked shy as he kept on covering his face.
In another shot, the actors' lips were open as though the two were about to lock lips with this model who has a thing or two for pensioners. We are however still investigating if this is not another case of photoshop. The background of the pics looked like a restaurant.
He is on record for being the one artiste being pronounced dead on several occasions and yet he was alive, but this time, Martin Angume did not make it. Confirming his death was his wife, Julie who had even composed a song for the ailing husband.
Martin Angume has been in Mulago Hospital for the last three months battling kidney and lung infections. A number of well wishers have been supportive to the 'Switch' singer in terms of putting resources together and among them include Betty Mpologoma, Members of the Kwagalana Group and Katsha from South Africa.
Bebe Cool went an extra mile and appealed to fellow artistes out there to come to the rescue of their colleague. Martin's body is still at Mulago Hospital where police has been battling with fans who had come to confirm whether the singer had died or its the same old stories.
Details of his burial arrangements are still scanty though more details will be availed tonight at the National Theatre where his body will be for public viewing. His death comes 4 days after Moses Nsereko succumbed to Gallstones in India. Moses will be buried in Mpigi tomorrow.
The Goodlyfe Crew have been forced to include a section in the OBUDDE launch to celebrate all those who have been robbed from us by death.
One of Uganda's most respected DJs, Momo Nsereko has died in India. DJ Momo, real name Moses Nsereko has been battling with Gallstones, which are lumps in the gall bladder. He had an operation here but there was need for specialized treatment in India.
Momo has been linked to top night clubs like Guvnor, Club Rouge and Mateos among others. The spin master has also been doing some work for Fenon Records. His death is a double tragedy to Fenon Records who had just lost their Stylist, Allison Malacara.
Fellow DJ and friend Apeman was very instrumental in the fundraising part of the Shs24m that was required for his operation in India, but unfortunately, he could not make it.
The DJ died on May 03, and since then tributes have been trickling in on social networks. Below are some of the tributes from Guvnor, where he did most of his deejaying and top female singer, Juliana Kanyomozi.
"Dj MOMO, I jus can't believe you're gone. But I know you are in a better place, no pain, no stress, no tears. Thank you for sharing your great gift with us. With all your success in the business, you always amazed me with your humility. I will miss you dearly. Sleep well my brother." - Juliana
"We are saddened for the untimely loss of our very own DJMOMO that occurred in India where he had gone for further treatment.May his soul RIP." - Guvnor.
"Return of the Ninja season 2.....watch this space...." was his last post on FB on April 18, 2013.
Guilty as Charged. Madam Orange Limo was smoked out sporting a fake Christian Louboutin shoe. When Zari saw the red sole, she rushed for the discounted shoe thinking it was from Italy but in the end, this was an original shoe from China at least going by the heels.
The top most beautiful socialite will go an extra mile in looking trendy and with a limo in her parking lot, $800 for an original CL shoe should not be a problem, thus the conclusion, she was conned. Zari cannot be blamed much because an authentic pair has 'Made in Italy', 'Christian Louboutin' and the shoe size in EUR at the bottom.
On the fake ones, the 'madeinitaly' is one word and if you are not so observant, that is how you fall in the trap.
With just slightly above 20 days left to the eighth season of the continental reality TV show, Big Brother Africa (BBA), Desire Luzinda declared a few days back that she failed to make it for the reality show and this is breaking to a huge section of fans out there who were waiting to see her curves served to the whole continent for at least 91 days.
As you all know, no one reveals that they have been selected for the show to even the closest of relatives. This is exactly what Desire did confirming that she has for the fourth time lost out on the BBA auditions in this post.
"For the past 4yrs I've been a BBA contender as per tabloids. Today it's gonna be history as we prove coz am ready for the game. Lol" She later added that: "Come on guys read between the lines." Now Biggie's rules are clear, no approved housemate goes around posting such.
And now comes the dangerous substitute to Desire who happens to be none other than Doreen Kabareebe whose last name literally means 'Let them See'. The curvy model has been around vying for Miss this, Miss that but she is now more famous for her butt flash at the Sisqo show last year.
Sources say she recently traveled to South Africa with the other three to filter out which candidates to represnet the Pearl of Africa. The final list of possible contenders for Uganda's Big Brother Africa representatives now has Doreen as the only babe and four dudes who include; Zari's ex, Isaac Lugudde, Joram Job and Urban TV's Charlie Denzel Mwiyeretsi.
The fans can't wait any longer for the show to start on May 26, 2013.
After announcing his launch dates for the Coccidiosis album, Bebe Cool tweeted that, "A Chameleone can only change its colour but not it's skin." In this statement, Bebe Cool seems to imply that every other thing around Chameleone can change but not the skin complexion even after tones of Mekako and Samona jelly are applied.
Sometime back, it was reported of how Chameleone had a strange skin disease may be that is how Bebe Cool gets his ideas. Coccidiosis is one of his latest songs and now made it his album title. This is what happens when you are big. Just yesterday, The Goodlyfe Crew were comparing themselves to Chameleone and also giving impressions that their brand is now bigger than Chameleone's.
But In spite of all that, Chameleone is still in a jubilation mood after his well attended Badilisha show and certainly has no time. The latest information streaming in from Tanzania indicates that Chameleone's Valu Valu and Keko's Make U Dance have been nominated in the Kilimanjaro Awards.
During the recently concluded BADILISHA concert, Chameleone performed songs by different artistes that included Bobi Wine, Goodlyfe, Bebe Cool and Judith Babirye among others, a gesture that was welcomed by many music lovers. The Badilisha star went an extra mile to even appeal to his fans to go and support the Goodlyfe Crew's forthcoming Obudde album.
It's important to note that this was coming at a time when not long back, Moze Radio, a member of the Goodlyfe Crew used everything in his powers to ask the police to speed up with their investigations in the Karamagi case. In spite of all that, the Music Doctor went ahead to drum up support for their (Goodlyfe) concert and also performed their 'Bread and Butter' hit.
Going by the Goodlyfe's latest posting which is also their definition of Success, the duo now say they are even bigger than the music doctor given their constant appearances on MTV Base and topping charts on Trace.
"Success is: Doin wat othrz have dan n 10yrz, in less thn 5yrz!, topin charts on Trace, MTV Base etc, breaking away from a brand n makin an even bigger brand! # OBUDDE"
The socialite was yesterday checking on her bankers down in South Africa but she still managed to show off a slew of her sexy looks and the fierce footwear stole the show much as its winter.
Zari made her way to the bank but trust the 32-year-old, she still found time for some admirable outfit and boots which must have left the bank manager licking his lips all the way. "Sexy self at my bank Manager's office." Zari noted as she showed off her grey body hugging outfit n boots.
Zari was last here during the Mr. Vegas Street Jam show but things didn't go down well with the dad of her three children, Ivan Ssemwanga leading to some altercation of sorts that subsequently led to her missing out on the Badilisha concert. Zari is Chameleone's fan to the point that missing his launch was the last thing she could think of.
During Chameleone's Valu Valu concert, Zari and JH fought for the limelight to show off who had more financial clout but with Zari missing from the Badilisha concert, Judith Heard just grabbed herself a canon camera and assumed the job of a paparazzi to try and make an extra buck.
A new local drama series, Deception has been launched. The thrilling show is about a compelling story of a no nonsense mother-in-law who moves into the couple's house to ensure that her son gets a grandchild in less than nine months.
Chris and Monica, a young married but childless couple are having it rough after Monica's mother-in-law moved into their house to make sure that her son gets a child by hook or crook. The series are highly recommended.
Among the cast members is Sara Kisawuzi, acting as 'Nalweyiso' making her debut in the acting scene. Nalweyiso was the old lady who featured in the WARID Forever Bonus Advert aka Namalayo in which she told the old man that she was quitting their marital home after finding someone younger. Viboyo's 'Love Me Love Me' song played in the background.
Nalweyiso has made life difficult for Monica in the Deception local series from the time she walked into their home to the extent that she can't even catwalk in her own house. The series went on air yesterday and will be showing on NTV every Monday and Tuesday starting 7:30pm for at least 13 weeks.
Meanwhile, season 3 of The Hostel Series starts on May 15, 2013 and will air at 7:30pm from Wednesday, Thursday to Friday. 'We're back and with some familiar faces and some new ones too that you're gonna love," the sources noted.
It's a little hard to comprehend that the Badilisha star has turned 34 years old today and remained one of the biggest musical acts in East Africa. The Badilisha Concert that was held over the weekend confirms that. Married to Daniella Atim and together they are blessed with three kids, Abba who rocked at the Badilisha Concert, Alfa Mayanja and Alba Shyne Mayanja. Chameleone has another daughter, Ayla Mayanja with his ex Belgium wife, Dorotia.
In his birthday message, the star with over 13 years in the music industry had this to say: "Soooo many years sooooo many challenges, but with the love of the most high God, my family, fans and friends we have challenged back!
Today I want to celebrate my 34th BIRTHDAY with you who have made my life worth living, I mark this day that I was born with a lot of presents that include your tremendous support for BADILISHA Live! You gave me the best birthday present ever by showing me your love, together we made it."
Chameleone's 13-year-music journey has not been a bed of roses. In 2008, the star fell from a top floor of a hotel in Arusha breaking his legs in the process, then a year later, he was knocked to near death around Wampewo round about by now jailed Meddie Ssentongo. The two made up and he actually gave him the Mayanja customised BMW in appreciation of his music. If the transfer was not made, this could be one of the properties belonging to Meddie that Greenhalgh is seeking to attach.
The worst blow to his career was the death of Robert Karamagi who broke into his Sseguku based house only to torch himself. He later died from Mulago Hospital. Chameleone was cleared though police insist they will not hesitate to revisit the file should they find it necessary.
One thing is for sure, at 34, he is still releasing more hits. 'Valu- Valu', 'Badilisha', 'Moto-Moto', 'Mama Mia' 'Kipepeo' and 'Beyi Kali' among others are the hits that continue to resonate with his fans. Happy Birthday Chameleone.

Africa's number six and East Africa's finest, Jose Chameleone did it once again at the Badilisha Concert that was held at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds. Dressed like an astronaut straight from Mars to Kyadondo, the Badilisha star hit the stage at about 10:30pm doing 'Owakabi' followed by 'Bomboclut' and later his other top hits that included, Mama Mia, 'Mambo Bado', 'Bayuda' among others.
The Ghetto President was all smiles in the VIP section clad in black alongside the Kampala Metropolitan Police Boss Felix Kaweesi plus other East African artistes that included Redsan, Samputu and Prof. Jay among others.
Local artistes who entertained the guests before Chamili hit the stage included: Navio, Gravity Omutuju, AK47, Papa Cidy, Mathias Walukagga, Ronald Mayinja and Coco Finger among others.
True to his name, Chameleone stunned guests when he did songs by fellow artistes like Bebe Cool's 'Kasepiki', 'Wendi' by Bobi Wine, 'Bread and Butter' by the Goodlyfe and 'Bweyanyamba' by Judith Babirye. He did not spare Jaguar's Kigeugeu.
Chameleone later urged half of his fans at the Badilisha live show to support the OBUDDE album launch by Goodlyfe which will take place on May 10, 2013.
As the show was almost winding up, Chameleone invited his son, Abba Marcus Mayanja who took on to the guitar to do the 'Bomboclut' song. The boy looked calm before the crowd as he did justice to the guitar. Last year, Valu-Valu was big but Badilisha was even bigger with numbers estimated at over 24,000.
Police issued a terror alert earlier in the day but this did not stop fans from rocking the venue which was the scene of the July 2010 Al-Shabab bombs that left over 70 dead.
The royal wedding of Prince David Wasajja (47) and now Princess Marion Elizabeth Nankya (27) was held last Saturday. The couple exchanged their vows at Rubaga Cathedral in Kampala. The royal wedding was presided over by the Archbishop of Kampala, Dr. Cyprian K. Lwanga.
It was a colourful day for Buganda Kingdom as the young brother to the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, and his better half Marion walked down the aisle. The wedding ceremony had 1,000 guests including the Buganda King. Inappropriately dressed guests were bounced especially those in miniskirts and jeans.
Businessman Godfrey Kirumira also a member of the Kwagalana Group gave out money to Juliana Kanyomozi in a 'Nigerian Style' like an Oga as she did her thing. Interestingly, Juliana's hand could not hold any more notes so the tycoon resorted to dropping the notes around the Diva's boobs.
Considering how long he had taken to formalize, Prince Wasajja told his guests that he does not rush 'things', he normally takes his time so there was no cause of alarm. Several artistes including Jose Chameleone, Juliana Kanyomozi, Ragga Dee, Bobi Wine and Dr.Hilderman performed at the royal wedding.
Marion is a daughter to Bukoto South Member of Parliament, Mathias Nsubuga.
Racting to reports that Members of Eagles Production had contributed to his introduction ceremony that helped him charter a helicopter to his in-laws in Buddo, Radio Consultant, Joel Isabirye has refuted those claims saying that he could have actually used a Gulf Stream minus soliciting for contributions.
"Chartering a helicopter to me is pocket change. I could actually charter a Gulf Stream If I wanted to and I do not need contributions from anyone to do so. The only problem was Buddo does not have a landing site with runaways that could receive a gulf-stream," Super FM's Joel Isabirye noted on his wall.
A few days back, after it turned out that Joel Isabirye had used a chopper to go to his in-laws home in Buddo to seek Rebecca Jingo's hand in marriage, a move that disgusted his ex girl friend, Rita Kaggwato the point of thanking all those that contributed generously during what she termed as ''begging meetings'' that were conducted between the period December to April, 2013.
Excited about Isabirye's recent moves, one Enoq Wakabi was forced to pose these questions: "Guys who is Joel Isabirye? No Offence I'm just inquisitive. Is he a Musician, Actor, Socialite etc. I see him in papers, I heard he used a chopper somewhere..Muna Okolaki exactly? (What Do you do Exactly?)
Isabirye's response was: "Isabirye is just an ordinary Ugandan trying to make a living through various ventures that are best kept private."
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned...and when that woman happens to be a babe defending her new found love! then you better look out.
Imani Genie Karungi took to her wall to lash out at those who spend their valuable time discussing someone's age. "You find a bunch of youth discussing someone's age. why can't you do something productive for the betterment of your own self, You never cease to amaze me."
This is one of the comments that made her go wild: "Wise, I agree with you on one thing that gal isn't a US born. Do you notice da conc Luganda she posts on her walls & the abuses she uses? Abt da man being old, I doubt u even know how he looks like.
I've known Roger for 10yrs now but he still looks the same up to date besides age is just a number. I'm only worried about the chic, because I know Roger is truly in love but is Imani there with him dats my question. I just wish dem da best"
Imani and KFM's Roger are the latest couple on the social scene and for the last two months, they have dominated most publications. In the comments that have become of concern to Imani, the fans closely watching the couple say there's an age difference of 20 years between the lovers.
Recently, Imani revealed how the two met and told of how the engagement ring was delivered to her in the boot of the blue BMW he bought for her while in the US two months back.
She concludes: "One thing I will assure you guys is that your opinion in this doesn't matter. What matters is me and Roger, so keep your opinions to yourselves."
Last December, Tycoon Ivan Semwanga and his pals went to Luzira Prison to check on Meddie Ssentongo and while there, he told them that on completing his jail term, he does not expect any tycoon on the social scene other than himself.
But Meddie's plans have been shattered after the Commercial Court on Thursday granted David Greenhalgh's lawyer, Patrick Farah to go ahead and attach Meddie Sentongo's property valued at slightly over Shs7bn. This has left Meddie homeless.
Three plots in Munyonyo and an account number in Stanbic Bank with close to Shs2bn plus an acre of land is part of the property liable to attachment.
Other properties to be confiscated are several plots of land within the city, two vehicles belonging to Bad Black, a BMWX6 - UAP 304 D maroon in colour and a Navy Blue Range Rover UAP 838 L which are currently at Nakawa after a verification exercise revealed that the cars had issues. The BMWX6 was assessed as BMWX5, thus paying less in taxes.
Meddie who was in court yesterday with a new ball that he took to his inmates at Luzira Prison where he's serving 18 months. Meddie was found guilty for conspiring with Bad Black to defraud Daveshan Development Ltd, a company owned by David Greenhalgh.
Bad Black was a minority shareholder in the company. She was sentenced to four years but applied for bail to go for treatment in Dubai and since then, she is still at large. An International warrant was issued for her arrest.
It's official Roger Mugisha is engaged to US based model Imani Karungi and just recently, the law graduate with a passion for modeling pulled out a rifle for babes that were sending her threatening messages.
She has such a busy schedule that it led to the break up with her ex-hubby, Noxyene Betham who is also the father to her daughter. Talking to one of the leading tabloids, Imani revealed how she met Roger way back in 2010 at a corporate function in Kampala but were only mere friends.
The couple officially fell in love in 2011, and on February 15 , 2013, Roger proposed to IGK. "He bought me a blue BMW which he personally delivered to my work place though the ring was in the car boot."
"He handed me the keys and asked that I pick something for him from the car and -wham there was a ring and an envelope with a proposition card. This is when he went down on one knee and put the ring on my finger...hmmm it was one of the sweetest moments in my life."
Everything for the wedding is set apart from the date, Imani concluded.
All is set for the Badilisha Concert tomorrow (Apr 26) at the Kyadondo Rugby Grounds. Jose Chameleone was at the grounds ensuring that all is well ahead of the concert. Redsan from Kenya, Professor Jay from Tz and Massamba from Rwanda will perform alongside Uganda's music heavy weight.
Doing his hair as he sipped a cold bell, Chameleone did the Badilisha dance saying he is more than ready as he appealed to his fans to come in large numbers. Tickets going for 10k and 30k will be purchased at the gates.
"A few people can at times say, going for a concert is very difficult claiming it's a long journey, expensive tickets but for the BADILISHA Concert there is literally no excuse because at Kyadondo, we have brought the music closer to your community.
The stage is up to the standards and the delivery will be perfect." Chameleone said.
After giving birth to her son, Donnel Larris, Club Silk's publicist stepped out looking better than ever! Lindah Lisa had her son a little over two weeks back and her hot body is back on form and ready to do the Badilisha dance tomorrow at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds.
"It's an awesome experience.. enjoying and learning much more about babies every moment that passes by." Maama Larris noted.
Announcing Donnel's birth, Linda wrote: "Thank you Lord for honoring my prayers..Thanks to d few real friends that have stood by me all thru...thanx to u fb fam for d prayers...Thx to d doctors...Thanx to my family."
Linda did not leave out the tycoon responsible for the pregnancy who she says was by her side throughout the nine months. "As for Mr Happiness, am speechless..u've stood by mi all thru n trust mi, d sky is d limit for our love. Our bundle ov joy came out at 3.2kg, I delivered normally with no stitch..amazing."
During the time she was heavy, one tabloid published Moze Radio's sexual network and she was among. This rubbed her yet to be revealed tycoon the wrong way that she was forced to come out and clear the space that they've never made out with Moze Radio.
The ex-model is back again but this time on relationships gone bad.
"Why do girls (esp African girls) always play victim when relationships go wrong?!? Find it slightly embarrassing when one dedicates their timeline to blaming guys and giving relationship advice to her fellow loser females hence gagging us with updates like 'what do men really want,' 'men are like that (me wondering ..'like how?') 'he makes you pregnant and dumps you'(what the f##k were you thinking when he was busy humping away)...temutukooya!"
These words come at a time when a one Rita Kaggwa is still getting to terms with her ex boyfriend, Joel Isabirye who went to his in-laws using a helicopter with a black limousine on standby. Joel and Rita have a child together but she recently opened up a smear campaign on the father of her child.
Rita was trying to come up with 100 reasons why you should not date a Ugandan man, but she only managed to come up with five before giving up. Now the only ex-model with a Masters Degree simply sums it up as temutukooya...what were you thinking..!
Two weeks back, The ''Bamuyita Yesu' singer, Pastor Wilson Bugembe was able to invite all Kampala celebrities to his Light The World Church in Nansana that saw Desire Luzinda, Bebe Cool and kick-boxers, Titus Tugume and Ronald Mugula among others attending the Celebrity Sunday service.
The 'Nina Omwami' singer enjoyed the service and this is what she had to say: "OMG celebrity Sunday at Pr Wilson Bugembe's church has been so powerful and fun." It looks like her prayers were heard that day and the curvy singer is now poised to represent the country at the next Big Brother Africa (BBA8) show that will be held in South Africa starting next month.
Desire Luzinda has not been successful on two occasions while auditioning for the Big Brother Africa reality show, but word on the rumour mill has it that, the curvy star and one Joram Job are set to represent Uganda in the next episode.
Meanwhile, following the Celebrity Sunday service, Pastor Wilson Bugembe last evening paid a surprise visit to bummy Desire at her pad and the two discussed at length on a number of issues and also received God's blessings for her stay in the Big Brother house.
Desire told her close pals: "Guess who just surprised me at my home...pleasant surprise Pastor Bugembe."
This was received with a lot of excitement that the two were having something up their sleeves looking at the time the not yet married pastor went to her pad. Curvy Desire was quick to brush them off: "You guys love to couple people! It was a nice evening I should have taken a picture of the food I cooked." Watch this space!
Former city socialite and 'Nkyamuka' singer, Bad Black was recently spotted in a Malaysian bar two weeks back. Bad Black with some three Ugandan babes frequent night clubs in and around Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Some of the night clubs have popular live bands from Tanzania performing live.
Bad Black left the country in January to Dubai to have her rotting 'boobs' sorted but ended up in Malaysia. An international warrant of arrest was issued for failing to fulfill the bail terms. However, info reaching us indicates that she has relocated from Malaysia to some other destination.
A few days back, Bad Black wrote on her wall that she was happy for her rival, Janet Apuyo for having given birth to Greenhalgh's baby and added that Greenhalgh is still taking care of both of them after all, so there was no big deal.
Just yesterday, her co-accused, Meddie Ssentongo was produced in court from Luzira Prison over other charges, but his swagg alone left many in shock. "It was as though he was from a high profile meeting and an officer was rushing to open the door for him," one person at the court premises noted.
Bad Black and Meddie Ssentogo were sent to Luzira Prison for embezzling over Shs11bn from a UK based businessman David Greenhalgh. Bad Black was sentenced to 4 years while Meddie 18 months. Meddie is yet to complete his sentence while Bad Black is now a fugitive.
The Coccidiosis singer has appealed to all artistes to come out and support ailing singer, Martin Angume who is currently in Mulago Hospital. He is one artiste who has been pronounced dead on several occasions but like a star, Martin is still doing fine.
Several artistes are putting resources together to see to it that Martin can be flown to India for more specialized treatment. Bebe Cool is the latest to come out with this appeal:
"This is a special request to the following Ugandan Musicians, Jose Chameleone, DJ Bobi Wine, Mesach Semakula, Ronald Mayinja, G. Lutaaya, Iryn Namubiru, Juliana, Steve Jean, Kawesa."
As if reluctant to add them on the list, he says Okay even Radio and Weasel TV. Bebe Cool concludes that: "Let's contribute Shs 500,000/- for our fellow musician Martin Angume for treatment coz you never know who comes next. Show some love to a brother and even those that I did not mention are free to do so."
Bebe Cool was so particular with the names he mentioned. Either they have been appearing in the local tabloids being ranked as the richest with their mansions, rides, hotels and so on all over the papers.
He is also aware of the fact that just recently, The Goodlyfe duo were paid 150m for their Obudde album launch by Kibo Media and from that, Martin Angume can be bailed out.
After being thumped by Zsamboki Mate and Andras Nagy, Golola's fans had given up on him advising that he should resort to comedy but yesterday(Apr 19), all this was reversed when Uganda's kick-boxing champion, Moses Golola won Istvan Betyar by 10 points.
The five rounds fight was held at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds with each round lasting two minutes with a minute break. "He thought that I was going to use old moves, but a few seconds into the fight, he realised that I was only using new kick-boxing moves. That is when he started avoiding me, otherwise It was meant to be a knock out." Golola said after the fight.
The fast-talking kickboxer added: "I hear Titus Tugume wants a fight with me hmmm, well I'm more than prepared to show my fans what the new Golola is made of."
In the past Golola used to take passion juice and porridge but this time round, he took cement and concrete and the results have turned out to be positive.
Meanwhile, after Moses Golola and Titus Tugume, Eric Kidega Onen is the next Ugandan kick-boxing champion to look out for in the International Kickboxing spotlight. The fight between Eric Onen and Henry Bannert is slated for Apr 27 in Vienna.
The latest info we are receiving on our desk is that Ragga Dee has bought a house in Nalumunye Estate off Entebbe-Kampala road. The Grand Pa of Music and also the 'Balalu' singer is equally loaded with a lincoln navigator and an Escalade among posh rides you find in his parking lot.
Apparently, he was forced to buy and not to construct the house in the above pic after it became an issue of who is the richest Ugandan musician following MTV Base and other Nigerian sites ranking Jose Chameleone as Africa's number 10 and by default Uganda's richest musician.
Ragga Dee adds that: "I already have a place I call home so my buying this house does not mean I have no house but just to put this issue of who is the richest to rest." Ragga Dee just laughed it off when asked what his take was on Chamelone being ranked number 10 in Africa.
If Chameleone is number 10, then I'm the richest in Africa because according to me, Chameleone and Bobi Wine are just kids when it comes to money matters but for Bebe Cool, his house is incomplete, but massive.
One scorned Rita Kaggwa who has a child with Super FM's Isabirye has come up with reasons why galz should not date a Ugandan man and some of the reasons Rita is fronting have been reproduced here:
He would rather impress a concubine than his lovely wife and kids.
He vanishes after impregnating you.
They never carry condoms with them.
They will always struggle to impress a woman to the extent of hiring a car from a washing bay or chopper for introduction even when living in a Kazigo.
Eagle's Production member, Mesach Semakula reached out to Rita asking her to calm down but she did not oblige: "Respect yourself, you will be respected. That is not the right way to discuss your man, remember he is the father of your lovely son, so just do it for your son."
Rita hit back immediately: "Oh please spare me with your opinion Sebbo, respect your fans much as we respect you, don't come besieging my wall with your personal feeling, what makes you think it's directed to him."
This was widely expected. Rita and Joel had a thing going on but like his other failed relationships, this was one of them. Just yesterday, he was introduced at Rebecca Jingo's home. Rebecca Jingo is faded star Roy Kapale's ex of the 'Mukyala Neighbour' fame. We are still watching this space for more updates!
Radio Consultant, Joel Isabirye was at Garden City rooftop boarding a helicopter to Buddo where he will be introduced to the parents of his wife to be cum singer and radio presenter, Rebecca Jingo.
Rebecca who could not hide her excitement as she was seen smiling from ear to ear had this to say: "Am so greatful to God for this special day in my life. For sure the lord is with me. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. Today is my introduction day, am so happy, very very happy".
While top stars like Jose Chameleone used a chopper on their wedding day, Joel Isabirye has used it for his introduction ceremony (Kwanjula). This will be followed by a wedding later this year. Joel has not had a smooth ride with women in the last ten years.
The Super FM Consultant has had a number of relationships that just did not work out. Rookie, Grace Naisamura and Sharon Nagadya who introduced him to her parents in Luweero were some of his babes. A few months back Rebecca was in a war of words with a UK based babe, Rita Kaggwa who claimed that she was pregnant with Joel's baby.
Joel came out and said he did not know Rita, but as Rita was still making noise, another man who has two kids with her wondered why she still had a thing for ISABIRYE. Right now, Isabirye the man is being introduced by his fifth bonkmate.
The Zamunda Sports Bar in Najeera owned by Hip-hop star, GNL Zamba is the latest to join the new bars' scene. The executive wing of the bar opened it's doors to the public last Saturday with performances from Baboon Forest and the likes of Sheebah, Vamposs and Viboyo among others.
The 'Nyenya Enkyensuti' singer was so excited about it that he reached out to some of the guests who attended the function. "My brother Aziz, McKenzie, Big Tonny all came to support me ! Feels great", GNL wrote on his wall.
That night was free and aimed at bringing in paying customers, but it's not clear how the singer will juggle between entertaining customers and figuring out how to sell more ounces.
Determined to even do better, he amused his fans when he landed on the MTV Base top list of Africa's wealthiest artistes that also put Jose Chameleone at number 10, GNL Zamba said;He was excluded from that list because he belongs to the Forbes list.
One Craig wrote: "That's a consolation...Ugandan artistes belong to the New Vision end of year list."
David Greenhalgh's baby mama, Janet Apuyo has told him to cut all ties with his ex- Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black who is currently in hiding after jumping bond on being released to go for breast treatment in Dubai.
Janet Apuyo and Greenhalgh were over the weekend in Nyanaama together with their baby to support Kigezi Good Samaritan Football Club leaving them with gift items and Shs5m in the process.
Looking at the baby, no doubt, Greenhalgh is the baby father and there is no need for Janet Apuyo applying 'white' powder to disguise the look of the baby just like how Bad Black used to do.
Interestingly, Janet was looking all glam, a total contrast of what she looked like when they exchanged with Bad Black at the Anti-Corruption Court last year when Bad Black was still battling with the court case.
Bad Black may be down but not out and she still yearns for Greenhalgh's love. In her latest tweet, she says: "I believe in ma self that's why I'm always successful in every thing. I luv you David Greenhalgh can't wait to see you!!!"
Meanwhile, she was forced to hit at all those who were flooding her inbox with news of her rival having given birth to a real Mzungu baby, this is what she had to say:
"Banange banauganda muyinna amalo whats the problem mugya wange okuzala omuzungu mbadde omwami waffe atulabilira bulungi kati mwe aba mpelenza bu msgs please nze ndi mukowu ask david njenddi mwasaama!!!!"
Meaning that there's no problem with my rival giving birth to a baby, Greenhalgh takes care of both of us, in fact, you ask him of my whereabouts!
Uganda's top Hip-hop artiste, Navio has lost his grand ma. Molly Blick (84) was last night at Serena Hotel attending the celebrations to mark 20 years of Crown Beverages Ltd, the makers of Pepsi-Cola and other Mirinda products in which her daughter Prof. Maggie Kigozi (Navio's mum) is one of the three major shareholders.
Shortly after Prof. Maggie introducing her, Molly waved to the crowd and moments later, they broke off for dinner. It's during that time that she collapsed dead. The MC of the night, Roger Mugisha was faced with the worst experiences since assuming this role: "I had just mentioned that the old lady has stamina, that she wasn't on a wheelchair..gosh I gave her so many compliments."
Telling me she is dead is a shocker. I saw her walking and she looked energetic like she could live another ten years. It's a tragedy, can't believe it though, said one person who was attending the function.
The 'Leka Kwenyumiriza' singer had this to say: "People pass away. Remember them as they would like to be remembered." Paddy Blick, Bill, Arthur Blick Mugerwa, Derrick and Maggie Jean Blick Kigozi are Molly Blick's children. Molly loved sports to the point that she used to buy rally cars and motorcycles for her sons.
It's not surprising that the same trend has been picked by the sons and grandsons who have continued to dominate the motorbike racing in the country.
Tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga and his wife Zari took a commercial break from their relationship and decided to move separate ways. During that time, Ivan hooked light skinned Nickita (pictured above) while Zari teamed up with basket ball star, Isaac Lugudde who did some justice to her 'boiled goodies'.
The lovers later got back together after exploring and quenching their thirst on what they thought was missing from their ten-year-old affair. The two, Isaac and Nickita lost out on the love but gained in one way or the other. Isaac got some good amount of cash from Zari though charges of theft were preferred against him.
When you're friends with loaded Ivan, you get the best gifts. A BMW 335i is what Nickita got for leaving foot prints in Ivan's heart. This was further confirmed when a one Jalil expressed interest in buying the posh ride, but Ivan simply told him of how he had already given it out as a gift to someone.
This comes at a time when cracks are developing in their relationship once again. They recently had a misunderstanding after Ivan suspected that his wife was having some quality time with Jamaican star, Mr. Vegas. One of Zari's latest tweets that she shared on her affair reads in part:
"Relationships are like glass. Sometimes It's better to leave them broken than to hurt yourself putting it back together!" She adds: You can literally miss out on Mr. Right by waiting too long for Mr. Wrong to get right! Let him go!
The I'm Already Booked singer has been forced to cancel his album launch that was slated for May 10, 2013 just to be around his baby Mama, Sheila Patience who is about to give birth to her third child and his first.
In the message cancelling the launch, Big Eye noted that he was forced to call it off due to serious personal problems. The 'Sula Indicator' singer has been going through a lot lately. Just last month, his wife who is about to give birth was admitted at IHK hospital in a critical condition to the point that he asked close pals to include him in their prayers.
Before he could get to terms with that, a huge truck commonly referred to as Magulu Kumi rammed into his car while in Mukono though he managed to come out unhurt. Some fans had started concluding that these were stunts as It's common with most artistes who are about to launch their albums.
The 25-year-old Sheila is a music promoter based in Dubai though she has been around for sometime now trying to help Big Eye with his music. She started off as Big Eye's promoter and one thing led to the other. The father of her two daughters dumped her but the kids now love Big Eye.
KFM's De Mighty Breakfast show host, Roger Mugisha and lover Imani Genie Karungi have for the past weeks been exchanging love lines since making their affair public something that has left buddies in their circles excited.
As expected, this did not go down well with some babes who have been eyeing the man to look out for in the 2016 parliamentary elections. They bombarded her inbox with all sorts of threatening messages, with some asking her to leave the man before it's too late.
The no nonsense US based Ugandan model just went for her rifle and smooched it a little bit to drive a point home that it was not a 'joking subject.' "Iam gonna shoot any babe that dares to stand in my way of happiness with the man I love." Mugisha Roger ..I'm ready to kill for you, she added.
When this got to Roger, he was like hmmm, "The things we do for love! Thanks IGK for making me feel special, I never had a love like this before."
As if making rehearsals for his wedding vows and ready to put a ring on it, Roger added that: "Imani Genie Karungi thank you for making me a happy man and putting a smile on your face. I promise to make you the happiest woman in the world so help me God. Xoxo Love you"
The couple is looking at holding their introduction ceremony in under two months time and later in the year, is the proposed time for their wedding.
Richie Katts is nursing a deep cut on his forehead following a serious fight with his beau, Faridah Kumba, a sister to former Miss Uganda, Salma Nassanga.
A few days back we spotted Richie Katts at Club Venom during the Tycoon Swag Party feeling cozy with a mysterious babe who is cited as a catalyst for the break-up. Showing off the deep cut, Richie Said: "This is what Ugandan women can do best, Don't ask me why I'm not with her, she is so dangerous."
"Its over between me and Kumba", The 'Nsonyiwa' singer concluded. Their relationship has been rocky especially in the last two months though the two came out to Dispel Split Rumours followed by Facebook love stunts which seems to be the order of the day as seen from recent hook ups.
One Amina came out and told Richie that: Does that really need announcing and what will happen when you two get back together, let you private issues stay private and no relationship is perfect. Richie's response was: "You have no idea what you're talking about."
Last July, Bad Black's former hanger-on Mida Kibirige went to check on her ex, Richie Katts but unfortunately for her, she found Kumba and Richie all fired up. This led to her being chased like a chicken thief and after, Kumba wrote on her wall; "She's a dirty b***h who wants 2 b laid al da tym"
Mida can now take advantage of the window period. Watch this space!

Sanyu FM Breakfast Show fans have for the last two days been having fun over Melanie's inbox messages of a guy who wanted to access her pincode. The former show presenter, Melanie Keita now in Canada called Sanyu FM this morning to explain why she made the otherwise private messages public.
During her phone call, Melanie revealed how the guy had referred to her as UGLY in some fora something that did not go down well with her and yet the very guy was at one time pouring his heart out in her inbox.
To make matters worse, he even asked Melanie to produce any evidence that he had expressed interest in her. Melanie did not waste any time before retrieving incriminating evidence, that she shared on the Sanyu FM's wall as reproduced below:
DeGuY: Did you get offended when I said I wanted you badly LizAbWo: No I don't even remember...Did I just make it worse DeGuY: Kool hahaaha No way Its fine but I still want you LizAbWo: Tough....nothing to do about that DeGuY: What do u mean? I can do something about it uneless when
you are saying that you are married to Mwenda heheheheh lolest LizAbWo: I'm not seeing anyone but you can't do anything about it as well
Responses by the fans:
Kennedy: "Indeed this is a study (Melanisation). It's only for the strong hearted. Actor being held hostage in his own movie kikkaaa"
WT: "Then she should have called him ugly also since it was a matter of hurting in equal measure. Do u know how much psychological irreparable damage it can cause to him and those in trust with him? All bcoz he called u ugly? Even an apology can't do. The red tape was crossed here!"
Dun to WT - "That's a joke! you can call a man ugly and everyone will laugh at you... even Ssebabi has emboko yomukazi! you just don't know what calling a woman ugly does to her confidence! this punishment to me, wasn't even enough..."
Days after quitting Mbarara based Crooze FM, former Big Brother Africa star Ernest Wasake has landed himself a job as the Marketing and Public Relations Manager for both Kampala Casino and Pyramids Casino.
The BBA Star who bonked Tanzania's Bhoke to pulp while in Biggie's house could not hide his excitement through this tweet:
"Started from the top, then a little bit of the middle, then the bottom... now we here!!! HEHE! You can't touch this haters...what can I say? 'Just when you thought you had me figured?' What can I say? I'm like the mystery case of Benjamin Button... every time you see me... its a new day! new skin! new er'thin!"
In his latest tweet, his pattern is well explained of how he started off well with the Big Brother Africa exposure, then settled for an upcountry job with Crooze FM in Mbarara which he lost recently, but all that is now history.
Last Tuesday, Ernest finalized his contract with Bob Kabonero, who is also the proprietor for the two casinos.
The Goodlyfe Crew duo of Moze Radio and Weasel are fresh from their Easter Euro Tour but before they even settle ahead of their welcome party at Club Venom on (Wed 10), they have gotten a pat on the back from none other than Demakakana star, Bobi Wine.
In his words Bobi says: "Uganda has always produced outstanding artists over time, however in this generation, we are blessed to have another exclusively talented duo, Radio and Weasel. Even those who do not like these boys cannot stand and say their music is not good.
I am really proud of those CRAZY BOYS. The day will be 10th May, at hotel Africana....I will be there and am sure u will too.....let's love our industry and those that contribute to it."
'Big Up Bobi Wine' was Weasel's response, as Moze Radio had this to say:"Tru blood...we're all trying to raise da bar and stand proud among other giants...Thanks for the love..respect bigman...bless"
This comment had over 800 likes, 70 shares and over 500 comments which were enhanced with the thread within thread flow. This statement came two days after the 'By Far' singer attended the celebrity service by Pastor Wilson Bugembe at his Light the World church where he left the followers excited about his preaching antics.
Bobi Wine is among the artistes who will perform during the Goodlyfe's latest album launch. Others include the 'Ndibulungi' singer, Juliana Kanyomozi and Iryn Namubiru of the 'Tebiba Bingi' fame.
The Bruk It Down star Mr. Vegas was all excited about the huge crowd that graced the Club Silk Street Jam in Industrial Area last Saturday. Clad in a green shirt and black pants, Mr. Vegas did justice to his fans as he did top dance-hall hits and reggae songs which were a combination of Bob Marley, Chaka Demus and Pliers leaving revellers yearning for more.
The Jamaican star was so excited after his 2011 show in Zimbabwe flopped and wished the media could report on the Kampala success through this tweet: "Uganda Tun Up! When dem say mi flop a ZIM the media had a field day, now lets see if anyone will report on this success!"
'Top Shutter', 'Heads High', 'Pull Up' and 'Bruk It Down' among others were some of the songs he did as he removed his shirt sending the crowd wild. Before he hit the stage at about 11:15pm local artistes who included Gravity Omutuju, Viboyo Oweyo, Michael Ross, AK47 and Sheebah Karungi entertained revellers at the fully packed street jam.
The Badilisha singer Jose Chameleone did not miss out doing what he does best. Mr. Vegas thanked Ugandans for the love and expressed interest in getting a home here in Uganda just because of the babes who come packed in all colours and sizes.
"Thank you Uganda for a wonderful time!!! Second round was super! Thank you! Love u!" Vegas Concluded.
Cycling is fun and healthy and that's exactly what tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga did last Saturday at Kololo Airstrip during the Auto Show Exhibition. He was joined by his wife Zari who was riding an old scooty bike as they engaged in a competition of sorts.
The Auto Show had different players ranging from Bikers, Ambulances, Vintage cars and so on but now that these guys have seen it all when it comes to bikes, they instead found their fun elsewhere.
Ivan was riding the 'Gaali Hero' bike like Beckham though you could clearly see him losing his stability following the booze that was in his system courtesy of the previous night's Tycoon Swag Party that was held at Club Venom where he sponsored the open bar. Its amazing to see that he could balance on a cycle a few hours later.
Three of their cars were part of the fleet that were exhibited at the UG Auto Show - Kololo Airstrip Independence grounds.
The Goodlyfe Crew are done with their Europe Easter tour and are heading back home. It has been a Goodlyfe for Weasel as he found love and even got engaged to Carol.
However, Moze Radio thinks otherwise. "Iam coming back home...home is where love is waiting for me...been gone much too long...I miss Uganda c u soon ooohh!" In the pic above, as Weasel is busy hugging a zungu babe who is not Carol by the way, Moze Radio is singing: "They vibrate it, They Speculate it..so let it go Magnetic....!"
The Goodlyfe Denmark show was the most successful show ever by a Ugandan artiste as noted by one of the promoters. Bebe Cool fell out with the Ugandan community in Denmark and promised never to return after they exchanged bitterly with a drunk fan.
The Goodlyfe Crew of Moze Radio and Weasel will later this month proceed to South Africa and on May 10, 2013 they will be launching their latest album, OBUDDE at Hotel Africana. Bobi Wine, Juliana, Iryn Namubiru will be some of the artistes that will perform on that day.

Celebrated female chauvinist and also Kadongo Kamu faded singer Abdu Mulasi (Rasta Smart) is in hot soup after an elderly woman identified as Jane Nanyonga is suing him for damages.
Apparently, the lady was demanding for her unpaid dues from the electronic guitars and bass drums that were hired out to the 'Enkulu Tenywa' singer who only did partial payments.
On learning of this, Abdul Mulaasi stormed the industrial area 'Agataliiko Nfuufu' offices with a bevy of babes from his 'farm' and told of how the woman (Jane) instead wanted him for a lover but he rejected, otherwise, "I don't have anything to pay her as I did so using mobile money." Abdul Mulasi said.
This rubbed Jane the wrong way. "How can one fit to be my son claim that I wanted to be his lover when I was only demanding for money that he owed me" Jane narrated to snoops at industrial area where she also made it clear that she was going to press charges.
Abdul Mulasi was popular for his Kadongo Kamu hits like 'Farm', 'Swimming Pool' and 'Best Man' among others.
Today was Celebrity Sunday at Pastor Bugembe's Light the World Church in Nansana that saw Bebe Cool, Desire Luzinda, Bobi Wine and his wife Barbie attending the 10 o'clock service. Others included Cindy, Judith Heard and Sanga Lyambogo.
Pastor Bugembe long prepared for this day and kept on informing his flock on how superstars had confirmed their attendance for the April 07 service.Desire Luzinda might have to shift to this church because she was so touched if at all her post is anything to go by:
"OMG celebrity Sunday at Pr Wilson Bugembe's church has been so powerful and fun."
When it came to Bebe Cool, Nansana fans were seen trying to get a moment with the Ndisa Butti star who was blocked for some minutes before he drove off in his Hummer.
One Kalanzi Julius who was at Light the World church observed that: "Bobi can make a good pastor and Bebe can make a better gospel artist and it was my first time to see Cindy dressed decently."
Socialite Zari and her husband Ivan Ssemwanga together with their three boys came to Uganda for their Easter holidays and have been around since then. Zari took off time and went to Katanga slum where she knelt and served the kids with lunch and also donated various gift items.
Last Friday was the Tycoon Swag Party at Club Venom that saw Ivan declare an open bar that led some babes to crawl home. On Saturday morning, Zari was able to convince Clifford Smith, better known as Mr. Vegas to go and do some shopping at her Men's store, The Renaissance Man located at Garden City.
The two then proceeded to Oasis Complex next to Garden city where they bought some candy from Nakumatt supermarket. This is what Zari does best. Somehow she gets a moment with all the stars that come to town like the P-square duo from Nigeria, P-Unit from Kenya who were here last month and now Mr. Vegas.
Meanwhile, Ivan and Zari's cars that included a Lamborghini, Hummer and Chrysler were hired out for the Auto show exhibition at Kololo Air strip that ends today.
And who says ex lovers cannot re-unite. Tracy Bora was spotted at Club Venom with her loaded on and off Dubai based tycoon, Prince Kareem. You could clearly see the 'Nyemelearing' look on his face as the two posed for a photo shoot during the Tycoon Party at Club Venom last Friday.
Last December, the couple split under unclear circumstances. Tracy wrote on her wall to some who were concerned over the split that: "This nigga can move on without me..." but looking at the latest developments, the ex-lovers are back and ready to kick off from where they stopped since last December.
During the split, Tracy hooked another loaded fella who took her to Las-Vegas something that really worked as it must have gotten the loaded Prince jealous, thus regaining his interest in the curvy socialite.
The two were all over each other during the Tycoon Party with Tracy excited about her shoe which she didn't remove even on getting home, talk of okusula mu ngatto extra.

Jamaican based music rapper Mr. Vegas is already in the country for the Club beer sponsored Easter Street Jam organized by Club Silk scheduled to take place today Vegas, being the guest performer jetted in the country on Friday morning(3:00am)aboard the Turkish Airlines.
On his arrival, he came along with four members who included a babe only identified as Hyper making the number to five. "Last time when I came to Uganda, I didn't rock well my fans but this time round it's gonna be hot.
I also like to see Uganda ladies storming the show and singing with me as I perform" Vegas told reporters at Entebbe. He was welcomed by Club Silk's music manager Bob and Talent Africa's Aly Alibai among others.
Meanwhile, Mr. Vegas was being interviewed on the Sanyu FM's drive show yesterday with Crystal and Lionel as the hosts but interestingly, five minutes into the show, Lionel was already using the Jamaican accent making Crystal laugh uncontrollably. Mr. Vegas refused to divulge into details of his affair but said that he wanted the Ugandan gals to storm the venue in large numbers.
The glamour model has kept this a secret for the last five months but following several requests from her pals, she was forced to release the wedding pics: "After very many requests from my buddies, I decided to post a few pics of my Wedding enjoy."
It's not clear how Meg managed to slip away and have their wedding with husband Wollesen in private without the paparazzi gate crashing, but what is clear for now is that the couple was married last year in a quiet and beautiful environment.
The wedding was held here in Kampala on October 27, 2012 and fellow model and BFF Priscilla Ray was in church and actually read the first reading as celebrity stylist Brenda Nanyonjo of Miss Uganda did the brides hair and make-up.
Big Brother Africa star Sharon O was flaunting a noticeably fuller figure at Club Venom last week. Clad in a gold dress and black heels, Sharon who has been off the social scene for sometime stunned revellers with her new look which was tending towards Zari's.
This could be the more reason a bouncer at Club Venom failed to recognize her as she tried to access the VIP area, but she was rescued by the host of the night, JH. One added: "Forget the five hot slender babes in the Jangu video or the Sharon O who represented Uganda in the Big Brother house, this one is growing nice and fat."
One Jeane Marie said: "Beautiful I really like, there's no harm in adding a little weight, gal just maintain that hmmm you rock. Sharon O and her beau Ronnie Mulindwa are blessed with a son, Lisbon though some sources were like the weight gain could be that she is pregnant.
Meanwhile, Ronnie told his close pals of how sweet the South African girls were, a post that left many thinking he had got himself a South African babe. He later came out and cleared the space in this post:
"Banange wat has this got to do with shan? Good thing abt us we dnt pretend. And me noticing something nice abt other pipo doesnt mean i c my swithat anyless. I love my woman and nothing compares to wat we hv. But ill still notice other beautiful pipo in the world."
Back to the drawing board, the weight gain simply means that Sharon Osborne...err Obsession has been having a nice time.
You are used to seeing socialite Judith Heard in those seriously sexy photo shoots with a thick layer of powder, glow lips all looking phenomenal especially during her fashion shows.
The socialite always has a standby stylist by her side just in case anything goes wrong with her eyeshadow or mascara.
We now bring you the Judith Heard make-up free photo that her fans rarely see. In the photo, the ex-model has no makeup and weave which have more or less become her trademark. The socialite who has has just turned 27 was looking fresh like a teenager.
The Goodlyfe Crew have been in Europe doing various shows this Easter season leaving their fans yearning for more though one fan developed wobbly legs as Weasel did his thing in Norway and right now, the two are an item.
Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel Doug announced his engagement to Carolyne last Wednesday and since then, his facebook relationship status has changed from complicated to 'In a Relationship' getting his followers excited.
As if pulled by a magnet, Weasel was loving every second with Carol as confirmed from this tweet: "Enjoying ma jack daniels straight with ma wife Caroline...loving it."
One snoop noted that: "wherever Weasel went, Carol was just by his side making sure Weasel does not hook up other Oslo babes and wishing she could be with Weasel all the time." Yesterday was Carolyne's birthday but the two were like siamese twins as they celebrated the night away.
This was Weasel's birthday tribute to her: "Happy Birthday my Caroline...blow more candles with me alongside...mwa." Tabloids put his official number of kids to 29 from 29 mothers so Carolyne will comfortably take the 30th position.
Carolyne Serwadda hails from Mukono and she is currently based in Oslo, Norway where her magnetic force pulled Weasel during their Easter European tour.
The Obudde singing Duo of Moze Radio and Weasel TV have had a nice time in Europe performing to their fans in Sweden, Norway and Amsterdam among others. In Uganda, the Goodlyfe fans are anxiously waiting for the Obudde Concert that will be held on May 10, 2013 and later in that month, they will be performing to their South African fans.
Kick boxing sensation Golola Moses of Uganda is back and this time he promises fire. The fight will be held on April 19, 2013 at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds. "Ladies and Gentlemen this is Golola Moses of Uganda, the hot temper, am back in action 19th-04-2013, my fanz come and support yo boy, ono muja mulonda Bwaise."
Just when kickboxing was almost dead and buried, Golola came to its rescue. Initially many thought he was just some loud mouth, comical man before he knocked out his Sudanese opponent Abdul Qadir Rahim in the second round winning himself a World Kick-boxing Africa Title.
On being interviewed about his last fight, he told snoops that his leg had been 'discolocated' read dislocated. Comedy groups made a lot of money as they did various stints mimicking him in the fight coupled with the words that he said, the porridge that he took let alone the food he ate.
Unfortunately for him, he even lost all the money after knocking off all the overheads, he was left with nothing. The money to pay for his hotel accommodation and other costs was fundraised in order for him to check out of the hotel, but now he says forget the past, come and support yo boy, I won't let you down this time.
Lovers Gareth Onyango and Nickita Bachu have resigned their jobs at the Plaza based Club Rouge and crossed over to Club Venom located at Tirupati Mazima Mall in Kabalagala. Gareth was the Marketing Manager and Nickita was the Events Manager at the same club.
Gareth confirmed this development on his wall: "Last week I resigned from my job and 5 days later, I have a new job, Thank you Lord." Gareth is now the Club Manager at Venom while Nickita is the Marketing Manager at Venom. It's amazing how these two mint their dime together in the same departments and yet they are not only a couple but blessed with a baby gal. Not that there is a law that prohibits that...!
Some sources say the two quit their jobs due to unpaid salary for the last three months while other say that they were using the bar to fight their personal battles leading to their being fired. The couple is already down to business at their new station and their first major assignment is this Friday, 'The Tycoon Party featuring Ivan Ssemwanga'.
All is not well with the Gagamel boss Bebe Cool. After heavy rains disrupted his East African Carnival show at Kiwatule affecting numbers greatly, his Big Size Hummer3 has been clamped at Hotel Africana. It's believed that is the hotel where the other East African Bashment Crew members; Wyre, Nazizi and Nameless were residing.
We are still trying to establish if there are any parking violations that the Ndisa Butti star violated or if it has anything to do with outstanding dues leading to the to the Hummer car to being impounded.
Bebe Cool thanked his fans for turning up despite the heavy down pour. "Thx for your support yesterday (Sunday) at the East African Carnival in Kiwatule despite the rain you still managed to show up."
To add salt to the injury, the Big Size star confirmed his losses further in this tweet: "Lost more than 80m this weekend koz of rain but ma wife held me through. Big Up to the strong women behind daring men. Gagameeel 4 ever"
I'm in the mood expect fire tonight, Ngenda Nawe Onsuzze tonight, finally we gonna mingle tonight..is part of Rema's thorough composed 'Fire Tonight' which is doing rounds on the airwaves.
The gal with arguably the biggest dimple in Uganda is also behind songs like: 'Oliwange', 'Missing You' and 'Cease and Seckle' which are the two duets with her boss, Bebe Cool.
Her fans should expect more of these lyrics bearing in mind that Cease and Seckle which brought her to the limelight has equally got those sexy pick up lines like: "Cease and Seckle turn off the lights n pull my nipples ehe ehe ..."
The now 22-year-old seems to be in the mood and loving what she does. Before she had made 18, her mentor, Halima Namakula warned her not to sing anything she could not elaborate especially if she was asked to, but all that is a thing of the past and her fans should just expect more of those hits from the Gagamel member.
A week back, ex-model Priscilla Ray was so excited on completing a purchase for a waterfront property in Entebbe and having fulfilled her dream, it called for a celebration. "It's always been my dream to own a water front property and today, I have realised it! I own a beach yayyyy!"
Those were the words of the former model who has achieved so much at a tender age but as always, not everyone was siding with her prompting these words.
"I wonder what runs through the minds of those miserable low lives who sit behind their computer screens insulting anyone who is trying their best to reach their goals. While courageous people are trying to improve their lives and to rise, cowards do something completely different...they don't try to rise in order to be better but they pull others down in order to remain above. Poor souls."
Pregnant Club Silk Publicist Linda Lisa has spoken out on the secret social network that recently appeared in the Hello Uganda tabloid linking her to a string of dudes she had made out with.
Moze Radio's network included Daphine Basiima who featured prominently on Weasel's list, Lilian Mbabazi, the mother of his kid, Zuena Kirema and Linda Lisah. Moze Radio was also spotted on Judith Heard's list
Without mincing any words, Linda put the record straight: "Hello Uganda, plz get yo facts rite b4 writing certain things abt pipo...
I've never intimately touched, caressed or slept/dated Moze Radio..he's just a hi friend just like many ada pipo in d industry..
I kno al d pipo I've dated/slept wiv like u wd say..thank you!!!"
Others who appeared on the network were Juliana Kanyomozi whose list was relatively short though her take on this was: "I'm concerned about anybody who reads and believes what appears in Tabloids. Find something more constructive to do with your time."
Big Brother Africa top contender Desire Luzinda's list was the longest including the father of her daughter, Ken Ntaro, Bobi Wine's brother Eddie Yawe, Seya Sebagala, Bebe Cool, Bobi Wine, Aydee, Mesach Semakula, Tunde, Silver Kyagulanyi among others.
The world over, slim models have taken over most runways and others have got to the extent of starving themselves just to get that flat tummy and hitting the gym on a regular basis just to lose a huge amount of weight.
But Vee Beiby who confidently flaunts her curves in a one-piece swim suit has this advice to those who woul love to be plus size models: "To all em curvy girls outchea, Do not let em bring u down. Have confidence in your body. Rock that one piece swimsuit or bikini and flaunt it!
You are beautiful..Don't starve yourself. Don't lose weight for nobody. Just a little exercise to keep fit/healthy." Meanwhile, while the world over was battling with slow internet via the Distributed Denial of Service DDoS attack, Vee Beiby's social accounts were attacked by cyber-assailants but she managed to recover the accounts.
Vee Beiby is still on the top list of contenders to represent Kenya in the Big Brother Africa 8 reality TV show that will held in South Africa starting in May 2013.
A week after StarQT's Stella Nankya, a fashionista based in South Africa released her program for the 'Mr and Miss StarQt Africa', Katsha has also launched his 'Katsha Swag Party' for the same day and being the 'loaded' type, he is bringing in Uganda's top musicians, Bebe Cool and Jose Chameleone.
Stella was left with no choice but to tell off Katsha through her wall calling him all sorts of names before deleting the post. Since the recently concluded Miss Uganda South Africa which was organised by Stella and co-sponsored by Katsha, these two have not been seeing eye-to-eye due to the flopped pageant.
Stella had even filed a suit against Katsha but later had to reconsider. In her deleted post, she was cursing why she had even withdrawn the case. Part of her message was: "There are so many days between Apr 01 and Oct 05, 2013, did you have to choose Oct 5."
Some analysts are skeptical if those two can even perform on the same stage if the statements from Bebe Cool over Chameleone being among the top richest musician in Africa is anything to go by.
It's understandable where Stella's fears are coming from! She wonders if the Ugandan community in South Africa could opt for a beauty pageant instead of gracing Bebe Cool and Chameleone's shows next door. It's seven months to that date and we hope the two would have resolved their differences by then.
Sanyu FM's Seanice Kacungira has been living with braces for the last two years, but a few days back, her orthodontist removed the wires and brackets making her mouth a lot smoother now. First on her agenda is kissing which she has been missing very much, then she promises to do a lot of candy and meat.
Her co-presenter Fatboy was quick to notice that the wires had been removed and was actually happy for her.
The newly braces-free Seanice while on air this morning revealed that, she had paid a visit to her orthodontist who was quick at removing the wires and the braces, though the city MC cannot wait to do the 'things' she has been missing out on in the last two years.
The actress was at National Theatre recently doing what she does best, but while on stage, she amazed her fans wearing a big smile with braces that could complement her look.
Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has banned six concerts that were slated to take place around the Easter period for littering the city with posters. This was confirmed by the Communications and Media officer, Robert Kalumba. Eagles Productions, Eddy Kenzo, Bobi Wine and Kato Lubwama's shows are among those that have been affected.
Some of the artistes have vowed to defy KCCA's orders and will go ahead with the planned concerts. This morning, Bobi Wine dashed to his wall with these remarks: "I was surprised to hear that KCCA is taking me to court for putting Busaabala banners in the city yet I have a letter from them permitting me to do so and a receipt from them having paid 10,000/- per banner per day.
Now do not tell me that money does not reach where it should or should I say your spokesperson, Kalumba was drunk! Wama come Easter Monday, We go Busaabala-One Love Beach."
Sanyu FM'S morning crew were forced to place a call to Robert Kalumba over the matter and he clarified that, it's the display of posters that is not allowed, but they are free to display banners: "You can put a banner provided you have paid at our offices but not posters. All these cities you people admire like Kigali have no posters and there is no way posters will be allowed to be displayed in the city."
Meanwhile, in relation with littering the city, KCCA yesterday arrested some two motorists for littering and dumping garbage out of a moving personal vehicle.
Katumba Shaffic aka Katsha is a Ugandan artiste based in South Africa though he does not really depend so much on music. Like many of the South African based tycoons, he is equally loaded and interestingly, a graduate from Havard University-USA. Katsha is Software Engineer down in the Gauteng Province of South Africa.
Last month, he stunned folks down in South when he bought the latest Range Rover Evoque model as a Valentine present for his mom. Last December, YMCMB-Katsha as he is fondly called by close pals was in Uganda moving with over 7 bodyguards and a police officer by his side. Two bodyguards were assigned to watch over his Nissan-President sedan car that he specifically shipped in for the holiday.
Katsha co-sponsored the recent Miss Uganda South Africa version by bringing in Bebe Cool who was the main artiste at the pageant. Short of that, the tycoon has apartments in Muyenga and owns Katsha International clothing parlour along Gaba road. The loaded fella is expected in Uganda this Easter though his fans in Belgium were busy yearning for him just around this time.
In October this year, Bebe Cool and Jose Chameleone will be performing live at his Re-Union Bash dubbed 'Katsha Swag Party' that will be held at Club Moloko in Pretoria, South Africa. He will then bring the same bash to Kampala in December.
Last month, KFM's D' Mighty Breakfast show host was in the US for African-American History Month where he had a nice time enjoying the land of uncle Sam and also took off time to visit the Ghetto in the US.
But this particular trip was such a blessing for him because much as he missed Uganda, something cropped up along the way forcing him to extend his stay a little longer.
"I miss UG...but something just happened to me. Speechless." This was after he shared a picture of a hot babe. Close pals tried to get more info regarding the babe but all he could say was hmmmmmm, speechless.
He later said 'Omwana Wabandi' implying that he was feeling the babe (in picture). This babe made him appreciate his trip more and wished he could prolong his stay but back home, his female fans were equally missing his voice and show.
In 2011, he told Cardinal Wamala that he could not go beyond 2012 before getting married. "Thank you Emmanuel Cardinal Wamala for not only being a parent but also being such a good friend. I took your advice seriously and I will get married in 2012."
We are not sure who the lucky lady is, but insiders say he has already proposed and going by his remarks to Cardinal Wamala, and bearing in mind that he is a year past his set date, bigger things are bound to happen in the year 2013.
Bebe Cool was on Saturday spotted at Mulago Hospital cleaning to ensure that the patients live in a pleasant environment. The 'Kabirinage' singer had earlier on told off Chameleone on how he was not fit to appear on the top list of wealthiest musicians in Africa.
Chameleone responded that he did not care what any of his comrades thought about his worth, but the only thing that counts is him giving the very best to his children out of his music career. Bebe Cool strongly believes that wealth is measured in terms of how much you give to the needy.
On Saturday, he spent the morning hours cleaning at Mulago Hospital and later in the afternoon, he went to former Kampala Rugby Club for the first Car Boot Sale that had most of the proceeds donated to kids suffering from the sickle-cell disease.
Meanwhile, On Easter Sunday, Bebe Cool will be holding the annual East African Carnival show that will see top guns from Kenya like Nameless, P-Unit of the Nyemelearing fame, Nazizi, Wyre. In Uganda, Bebe Cool will be joined by GNL, Rema, Mun*G, Stecia Mayanja, Sophia Nantogo and Catherine Kusasira.
The show will be free for the kids though adults will be required to pay 10k.
Former city glamour gal, Priscilla Ray is surely leaving a posh and expensive lifestyle and at this rate, the likes of Zari might have to step aside. A few days back, Judith Heard (JH) was celebrating her 27th birthday forcing some to say that she had lied about her age like so many women do anyway.
The model who drives a BMW Z3 Roadster dashed to her wall to hit at those who think every one lies about their age. "I wonder why most Ugandans assume everyone is lying about their age! Just because it took you 50 years to get where you are doesn't mean it should be the standard for everyone else. Why is it too hard to accept that a twenty something year old has managed to achieve what took you 40 years?! Sour grapes."
Judith Heard and Ray are best of pals and it's not surprising to see that she was quick to come to JH's rescue. We all remember the Chameleone Phone Catfight between Judith Heard and Zari, Priscilla Ray tried to intervene but Zari did not have any kind words for her now well knowing that she had tried to ride with her hubby Ivan Ssemwanga, but things didn't last between them. For the record, this was the sole reason Zari Attacked Priscilla Ray.
The ex-model who holds a Masters Degree in International Business and Management from the University of Westminster-UK has now added a waterfront property in Entebbe and her haterz had better fasten their belts because she is more than determined to run over them.
She confirmed on her wall that: "It's always been my dream to own a water front property and today(Saturday) I have realised it! I own a beach yayyyy! So happy! Looking forward to the BBQs and meditations:).
Jose Chameleone has spoken out on the ongoing debate as to whether he should be on the list of the top ten wealthiest musicians on the African continent or not. Bebe Cool is on record for having rubbished the report claiming that as far as he is concerned, wealth means just how much you give to the needy.
Bobi Wine now says he has no problem if a comrade is ranked the best in Africa but then adds that some people have no reason to talk about wealth or money matters now that they have no address they can call their own since they are still renting.
After the two were done with their submissions on the top richest African list, the heavy weight came out of his shell and this is what he had to say: "Am not going to be intimidated by anybody to declare how much am worth. My struggle is to give my children the best value out of my good music. To all my Comrades, I am Nothing, to my fans I am worthy."
With those very few words, Chameleone simply put it that all he strives for is for his children to get the very best life can offer out of his music career. The Moto-moto singer concluded by wishing his fans a Happy Palm Sunday and a blessed week ahead.
He also reminded his fans of his forthcoming Badilisha album launch slated for next month at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds.
It's been 10 days since the Big Talent boss Eddie Kenzo went to South Africa to record a video and oh yes he's been having fun too while there and among others took off time to go for a football match at Green point stadium. However, he was one of those standing while obstructing fans behind him something that left a lot to be desired.
It's not clear if he was protesting the bad game or he had sight problems that stopped him from getting a clear view of the game, but one thing is for sure, he was getting more than he had paid for by standing in an area where most fans were calmly seated and following the game.
This was followed by a confusing post on his wall: "South African temanyi kapiila nfuunyo big up to this white man wakabi." Now knowing Kenzo, those could be lyrics to his song that he went to record in South Africa and a video shooting opportunity emulating the likes of rapper Navio.
Moments after his posting, some of his fans were requesting that he should post in English or get someone to manage his account but the 'Tondopeeka' singer was quick to rubbish that saying: "..Nze sente nzifunye mululimi Luganda ate lwemanyi kati gwe faa.." meaning that: I've made all my money singing in Luganda and It's the language I understand well.
Meanwhile, on top of being so close to singer Rema, the 'Sumbusa' star is rumoured to have ballooned some Swedish based sugar mummy, watch this space!
To most people, It's a yearly wedding anniversary do but to the Swangz Avenue producer, Vince Musisi, he could end up having like three to four wedding anniversaries in just one year. A few days back, it turned out that Vince had been married to NTV's Josephine Karungi for 88 days, though interestingly for him, he takes note of the hours minutes and seconds as revealed through his wall.
Today I proudly say, I have been married for 88 DAYS or 2096 HRS or 125760 minutes. Been blessed with a wonderful Woman of God and partner in crime. I love you Josephine Karungi. This got most of his pals excited though some wondered what sort of celebration it was.
Vince is still counting though he has not forgotten where he came from through his definition of marriage: "Marriage.. It's like being bornagain again. You get to let go of everything you've been and known just for this one beautiful thing that coward men and women are scared of."
It's a three months wedding anniversary though snoops could not easily establish whether this was their one year or two year dating anniversary. In a related development, Sudhir Byaruhanga also of NTV and his long time boo Arayo Miller were wedded yesterday.
The issue of Chameleone being ranked number 10 among the top richest African musicians has now taken a new twist. A day after Bebe Cool gave his views on what he thought about the top list, Bobi Wine has come out with what he terms as his views as opposed to what appeared in the Bukedde Newspaper of March 21, 2013.
"It is unfortunate that my name has been dragged into some immature argument. Well, It's only understandable that my name can't be ignored when this topic of money and wealth comes up. However, let me put it straight, There's absolutely no reason for me to have any kind of problem when a comrade in showbiz is ranked the richest artist in Africa just like I would not expect him to have a problem if my wife ranked me the strongest man in the world.
The 'By Far' singer adds that: This is called Showbiz(ness). As for you our elder brother (Neighbour with no address), no one quarrelled when you ranked yourself best artist of all time in Uganda. I really think you crossed borders when you started talking money and wealth because I don't see you in this area. $$Just an Observation$$", he concluded.
In his message, Bobi Wine makes it clear that he has no problem with his comrade being ranked number 10, in fact, he puts it plainly that he has no problem if he's the richest in Africa. Bobi Wine does not think that BEBE who has no address now that his house is still under construction should have the guts to talk about money and wealth and he does not see him in this area.
It should be noted at this point that Bobi Wine has his mansion in Magere, just completed Semakokiro Plaza with 12 units that currently house his Fire Base Crew offices, an Escalade and a beach in Busabala among others. Bebe Cool on the other hand has his Hummer, just recently was trying out the Bebe Cool Wine though not much is known about the wine currently.
Bobi Wine's response has come at the time when Bebe Cool had just put a pic of Chameleone eating rice on a plastic plate, but in all this, all Chameleone says is, kutaBADILISHA.
A website that features mostly content from Nigeria listed the 'Top 10 wealthiest Muscians in Africa' and on this list, our very own Chameleone came at number 10. The list had other big name artistes on the African continent like P-Square, Huge Masekela, D-Banj and Fally Ipupa among others.
The report went on to list items like a Corona Premio, Super Custom(Hiace), Cadillac Escalade, Benz ML and a huge mansion in Sseguku that qualified Chameleone to appear on the list. It has been a subject of debate from the time the list was first published two weeks back.
The report left out Chameleone's other assets that include: land in Entebbe for the proposed Coco Beach, rental apartments in Bweyogerere(Daniella Villas) plus land in Bwebajja and Garuga among others.
Bobi Wine was the first one to give his views on this "report" and according to him, D-Banj and P-Square are loaded because Nigeria is way far better than Uganda in terms of wealth, but for Chameleone on that list, that is a NO. If you want to know what I'm talking about, lets compare my assets and his and you will clearly see who is better than the other.
Hours later, the Bogolako star, Bebe Cool came roaring on his wall like a wounded bufallo:
"My my my God, save my neibaz from the troubles they face, for they need to see the light in the darkness they are in now. The comfort they get from their lies to the the public has always put them on pressure whenever the public is about to find out the truth about them hence, committing crimes.
How do you look in the eyes of your wife, I mean mother to your kids everytime you lie or comit crimes, mislead the public about your worth, I hear number 10, hahaha No big ride on the road, now renting, BTW what happened to the so called landing syt?..."
It's not clear where this will end but one thing on Chameleone's mind now is nothing but his forth coming album launch, BADILISHA LIVE on 26Apr, 2013.
It's over seven months when Doreen's bare butt flash went viral but todate, the memory of that sight has never disappeared from some people's minds.
It all started with a post on McKenzie's wall adopted from Doreen Kabareebe that Byg Kahuna would salivate over Doreen's butt even when she is fully clad in a long dress.
"That nigger is mad, he was even salivating last time at silk GNL's Unplugged yet I was in a long dress. Kahuna be open en express yo feelings abt me noooow....."
As expected, this received a number of comments from various people expressing their thoughts, though notable among them, were comments from a one Sha Mee Raah who kept on hinting on the pic in which Doreen's butt was bare during the Sisqo flopped show.
Comments that trickled in after were featuring Capt. Dolla's Emesse hit with Doreen's being referred to as the big rat aka 'Musomba Byuma'. Doreen was following quietly in the background as her 'boysss', Calvin and McKenzie cheered on. Byg Kahuna was already in the house but using Sha Mee Rah's comments to sort things out.
One Nekesa was forced to ask; but where is the main actress in all this?
This is when Doreen came out of her hiding with this post: "Shamirah, whatever......toja kunkoya...guys this is a warning. Everyone shd learn to mind thr own business...you will run mad for nothing if yo to continue following me up en talking s**t. simanya biki biki. I got my own life to live..." Tinkwenda akamanyiiro.
Shamira responded with this: "But I really pity people who were picking mangoes while we were studying, therez a funny way they expose themselves"
This rubbed Doreen the wrong way to the point that she had to unleash her CV. "..Just wait for my confirmed first class. October ain't far. Beauty en brains is Wat am talking abt.."
Shamira wrapped up the show with this dossier that got over 17likes: "Hahahahahaha, therez no woman with class n brainz dat can expose her azz in public, tebakulimbaaaa." Byg Kahuna is a radio presenter at 100fm, while McKenzie is a presenter at Radiocity. Watch this space!
On Tuesday morning, reports circulated on various media platforms that the Guli Mu Giya Nene singer, Martin Angume was dead. Martin was admitted at Mulago Hospital last Sunday following a general body weakness. The singer was being taken care of by his wife, Julie Namugga.
While at the hospital, Angume slipped into coma after being told of the death of his close pal, Geoffrey Dungu aka Dandaloo of Jeckaki band leading to the rumour that the 'Switch' singer had passed on, but he later recovered. Julie's phone was ringing non stop with others passing on condolence messages, but she kept on telling them that Martin was alive.
Gen Mega Dee and Bobi Wine were among the artistes who went to check on him at the National Referral Hospital in Mulago, ward 6 after it turned out that there were lots of conflicting messages on whether the singer was dead or not.
Angume's facebook account was full of RIP messages and others asking him to at least make a post on his wall to clear the space, but all this was not possible as the singer was still in coma at the time.
By this evening, the singer had improved greatly and doctors were thinking of having him discharged. Singers like Desire Luzinda who did not sleep last night and Sarah Zawedde were able to breathe a sigh of relief when it turned out that Martin was getting better and not dead. By this evening, the messages on his wall had long changed from RIP's to wishing him a quick recovery.
Pictures speak volumes and this recent pic of the Omulembe Gwa Kirya singer and model Jemimah simply fits the caption. A few days back, Maurice shared this pic on his wall and going by the comments that followed, it's obvious Maurice has found love, though he will let the cat out of the bag during his upcoming 'Kirya Live 2013 Concert'
It's not been easy to link Maurice to any particular gal as he's lived most of his life in secrecy but with Jemimah on board, a number of his female fans who were working towards this are still in shock.
Former HB Toxic member and also B'ambi Fashion boss, Brenda Nambi is among those bearing in mind that sometime last year, Maurice was spotted planting a hot neck kiss on her at Club Silk during the 18TH Anniversary celebrations.
Jemimah is a daughter to Pastor Michael Kyazze of Omega Healing Centre and she is a model. Jemimah first hit the runway a year back during 'The Fashion With A Compassion Show' that was held at Serena Ball Room shortly after returning from Malaysia where she had been studying.
One Shaban commented that: "Jemimah, you never told me that u were part of Omulembe gwa Kirya, hahaha. Love the pic though, amazing. Great couple."
It seems socialite Bad Black's woos keep increasing by the day. Two weeks back, another warrant of arrest was issued for her after failing to appear in court on two occasions. She is faced with a traffic offence at a KCCA Court in Kampala. Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black knocked a family of three on a boda-boda after taking some good litres of black label from Casablanca bar.
Bad Black has since never returned to Uganda from the time of her release from Luzira Prison. Bad Black was sentenced to fours years but only served six months before being released on bond after paying Shs100 to go for breast treatment in Dubai.
Some of her lawyers were filing suits for their un-paid legal fees. Facebook has been the only form of communication with her gal brigade and dear ones back home, but she has now been forced to suspend the Mark Zuckerberg tool as it sometimes reveals her location while making updates with a smart phone.
A few months back, Bad Black was at a mosque in Dubai and this could clearly reflect on her wall, This morning, in what looked like her last post on FB, she wrote that: "Get new updates about me from Twitter, I'm going to close my facebook account for good, Thank you missing Ug Wabula."
Snoops had not yet verified the aunthenticity of her new twitter account.
Juliana Kanyomozi and Zuena were among the guests who celebrated socialite Judith HEARD's birthday party that was held at Sheraton on Friday, 15Mar13.
The ex model, who turned 27 on 13 Mar (13), had her birthday party graced by gals only as they joined her in tasting all cocktails of wine in what she termed as Queens Wine Tasting. She was born on the same day with her twin daughters, Briana and Branda. JH was so excited that on her B-Day, this was when the pope was elected.
"More memories my birthday had my twin girls and on our birthday, the new pope was elected." Last year, Judith Heard celebrated her 26th birthday at Guvnor which was attended by jailed Meddie Ssentongo and Isaac Lugudde among others. Notable among those who missed her B-day was FabClan member Sue Ochola who is chilling in UK.
It took less than a month for glamour gal Tracy-Bora to be hooked after being dumped by her Dubai based loaded Prince Kareem. In mid December, while cruising her black lexus along Entebbe-Kampala highway, Borah received a text message from her Prince charming ending their romantic relationship.
"A pal revealed that after reading the text, she got a bit dizzy and lost control of the wheels." The vehicle was later towed to Entebbe Police station. In the last week of January, Tracy Borah hooked up with another tycoon who took her to Las Vegas where she has been since then.
Looking at the time when Tracy broke up with her ex and the time she hooked the yet to be identified tycoon, it's not surprising that this guy was patiently waiting for his chance and when it did, he just swept the heartbroken Tracy off her feet and the next stop was in Las Vegas.
Borah is more of a queen as she has a whole suite to herself in one of the most expensive hotels in Las Vegas.
Club Silk Publicist Linda Lisa is just about to drop her bundle of joy and will be giving birth to twins. Unfortunately for her, the maid who should be helping her at this point in time is only taking advantage of her situation. That has however not made the publicist give up on cherishing her new role as she looks forward to bringing her babies to the world.
"Thank God I'm going down this lane, I'll forever rejoice for my babies." Linda has been having an insatiable appetite for Matooke, chilly foods and so on but due to her ulcers, she was advised to put them on hold at least to that time when she eventually gives birth.
A few weeks back, she got a serious attack as a result of having too much in take of acidic foods but she is now a lot better at least going by her latest post: "Ehh I believe my God saw d pain I went through last week. Today I've been able to go for pedicure n manicure then summed it up with a Pizza n a Cola..appetite back on board..Lwakuba I'm gonna miss Matooke bambi.
South African based Ugandan socialite, Zari was in town last week together with hubby and as usual had fun doing what they do best, 'Kulya Kash'. She attended the WARID Woman of Substance awards at Serena Hotel and also graced the Club Rouge 9th Anniversary party.
The couple is fond of spending like there is no tomorrow, but on this particular visit, the spending was on low key prompting rumours that the couple had become broke. Zari laughed this off saying that those who hardly know you say a lot before posting a pic of all her cars with these words: ''Don't Hate, Be Inspired''
A few hours later, she unleashed a black twin-turbo V8 Porsche Cayenne valued at $48,850 before tax. This has left many in the Gauteng Province in shock with the rate at which she changes cars like strings. ''Went shopping today waiting for my personalized GP plates." Zari confirmed on her wall.
In the last three months, Zari has been making headlines with Ivan's Lamborghini but this time around, she wants ZARI -GP initials on the registration plates for the Cayenne. In one of the reviews for the Cayenne S model, it's far better than a Range Rover Sport. "It gets to 62mph in 5.7seconds, reasonable fuel consumption and the cabin wraps around the driver.
Bobi Wine's wife, Barbara Kyagulanyi is one person you recognize either through a reality TV show, Omubanda W' Kabaka (OWK) that is aired on Bukedde TV or when you spot her cruising a black 'Ghetto' customized Escalade, then you know you've seen a wife to one of the biggest artistes in the country.
Barbie will even pull crowds to product promos like OMO and PRISM financial services that she is signed to but little is said about the agriculture celebrity she is.
The latest from her Magere based camp is that, Barbie has launched an attack on bad weather by venturing into resistant matooke plantains that will still grow irrespective of the weather pattern.
Barbie Wine says that: "Planting season is here!!!!!With all the uncertainty that surrounds us, I decided to go in for more resistant matooke plantains! Katulepuke you weather!" Then came a million dollar question from one of her followers; That does not look like Matooke?
Barbie's response was: "That's matooke, the type they manufacture. It goes through the lab, then plantains grow from scratch to that level." Now Barbie is one amazing house wife who on top of getting product endorsements is also the director of the Omubanda Wa Kabaka reality TV show together with faded star, Karitas Karisimbi.
Kampala Metropolitan Traffic Commander Lawrence Nuwabine revealed yesterday that pedestrians who walk while drunk are also contributing to the increased numbers of road accidents as they tend to bump into racing cars that end up crashing them to death.
The charges for those caught walking while drunk are still being discussed but one thing is for sure, one will be detained up to the time they sober up.
As police was carrying out the drink-drive operation, motorists who were high on the bitter could end up parking their cars and resort to staggering home as they uttered drink-drive jargons like 'Kido', 'Kawunyemu' and 'Kafuwemu' among others while alerting their colleagues. Officers who were carrying out the exercise were in the confusion being engaged more by these walk-drunk pedestrians who were busy pleading for the release of their pals.
This operation is normally done in the night when a relatively smooth flow of traffic is expected, but once a driver detects the slightest jam possible, they resort to taking alternative routes. In event that It's a one way or no alternative routes to the point leading to the 'KIDO', these are the guys who park and resort to walking after all the operation is meant for those drunk behind the wheels and not those walking with a 'swag' home.
Police has now turned the heat on pedestrians as confirmed by the Traffic commander: "I am telling you, we are not joking about this matter, whoever will be got drunk while walking will strictly be taken to the cells."
Business Opportunity - This same operation has brought in a few innovations, businesses and network affiliations. There's a a company already advertising for those who may require a driver just in case they are stuck or caught up in similar situations and their charge is 20-30k depending on the location. Night watchmen at Petrol stations and other residential areas are making a killing through guarding cars left behind by drunkos.
Some night spots have even been forced to include chauffer services to their VIP customers as a way of keeping them on board.
To get you on track, Stella Nankya is a South African based designer of the StarQt Label who recently organised the flopped Miss East Africa in South Africa that saw Bebe Cool and curvy Sheebah Karungi as performers vfor the night. Stella was having issues with one of the show sponsors, Katsha to the extent that they exchanged bitterly over the various show expenses.
Later that eve, she bounced back with a post on her wall: "Oh my God. Noticed this car following me. Driven around it kept following. Am parked at a garage, its also stationary. It's freakin m." Concerned friends were asking if all was well, but for several hours, there was no positve response leaving them with no choice but to mount a search as they contemplated to declare her a missing person.
A close family member later managed to locate the fashionista at Bedford Garden Hospital and he was the one that alerted her pals, though she was wearing a smile, a sign that she was recuperating from whatever her captors had subjected her to. It was not easy to get the details of how she got to the hospital, or what exactly happened.
We are positive though that the details will be made available as soon as she is able to tweet so she can clear the space. Meanwhile, some pundits are relating this to a stunt. According to Wikipedia, "A publicity stunt is a planned event designed to attract public attention to the event's organizers or their cause. Publicity stunts can be professionally organized or set up by amateurs."
In this case, since it happened after the show and it's alleged it was a flop, she could be buying more time to sort out her creditors. It happens, Grace Nakimera used cooking oil in the guise of an acid attack ahead of her album launch and it did magic, Kawempe Mayor Mubarak Munyagwa was 'kidnapped' for two days and on resurfacing, he swept the poll with a landslide victory.
Former Dream Galz member, Leila Kayondo's CV has greatly improved. As Tycoon Mbuga's wives are not happy about her closeness with their hubby, the 'Kuzina Nawe' singer is simply globe trotting. Last Thursday, Leila was aboard a KA flight, a day before the International Women's Day prompting her close friends to ask why she was heading to Kenya during that time!
The singer simply told them in Swahili that: 'Naenda Nairobi straight Kwa Dubai.' meaning that she was going to Dubai through Nairobi. Now this was her treat for Women's Day and no doubt sponsored by none other than the South African based Tycoon, SK Mbuga.
It's rumoured that the tycoon bought her a Harrier, paid for her music videos that were recorded from South Africa and just recently, a good amount was paid to the number one artiste, Jose Chameleone to do a collabo with her. Women's day for her was spent in Dubai busy shopping, something which is not going down well with the tycoon's wives, some of whom are pregnant.
The first-ever Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards 2013 were held at Eko Hotel in Lagos yesterday with Big Brother Africa presenter IK and former Zimbabwe BBA housemate, Vimbai Mutinhiri as the hosts. Matthew Nabwiso of the Hostel TV series and the only Ugandan nominated in the AMVCA won the award of Best Supporting Actor – Drama (Movies/TV) – A Good Catholic Girl.
The show was live at all Africa Magic channels. Matthew thanked all those who voted for him before heading to Lagos. "Friends and fans, thank you for taking the trouble to vote for me for the AMVCA awards." On the other hand, his better half, Eleanor also of the Hostel series cannot hide her excitement.
She reached out to a few of her friends through facebook and through her post, you could clearly see that she was excited. "aaahhhhhhhh exciiitteedddd.... it felt like a race...Thank God and all y'all who voted.... Mathew Nabwiso is bringing... the award.. home.. aaaaahhhhhh love you boo...."
Matthew Nabwiso is a lead vocalist for Soul Beat Africa, a Tusker Project Fame auditions judge and also part times as an advertising model. He has featured in various films ranging from: 'The Battle of the Souls', 'State Research Bureau' and 'The Pardon' among others.
His role as 'Gilo' in the NTV Hostel drama series simply highlights his talent. Matthew was tussling it out with Thomas Gumede, Osita Iheme, Fabian Adeoye Lojede and Kalu Ikeagwu.
Jose Chameleone has left the country for the first time since the Karamagi saga that left him grounded in the country as investigations were going on. Chameleone left on Thursday for Rwanda where he will be performing at Serena Hotel in Kigali tonight during the second album launch of RnB singer, Knowless Butera.
Knowless was at Club Rouge a few days back during the Rwanda Nite, and while she was not on stage, the Rwanda star was in the company of the Badilisha singer and her manager, Clement. Knowless has a collabo dubbed 'Byemere' with Vamposs and another collabo with Jose Chameleone will be launched tonight during the Uwondiwe Album Launch that is sponsored by MTN.
Other artistes who will be performing in Rwanda include: Rwanda's Uncle Austin, Tom Close and Mani Martin. Revellers will part with 5,000RWF and VIP will be 10,000RWF including a CD.
Singer Bebe Cool has wished Zuena a happy Women's Day and thanked her for having made him the son his mom was only dreaming of. The 'Obuvunanyizibwa' singer went ahead to thank Zue for being a good mom to his babies (Alpha, Beata and Caysan).
"Happy Womens Day my wife, mom, and sisterz. Zuena U have made me turn into a son my mum dreamz of. Thanks for being a good mum to ma babies."
Bebe Cool, Zuena and Caysan were in South Africa last week for the Miss South Africa beauty pageant. Meanwhile, the star has taken to selling high hoodies and T-shirts to his over 70,000 fans on facebook with each going for 30k. His fans in Mbarara, Mbale and Tororo are already demanding for the T-shirts.
Doreen Kabareebe has hit out on all those who make their affairs public claiming that it is a sign of insecurity. "Making yo relationship public doesn't mean yo in love, It's a sign of insecurity"
A closer look at Doreen's circle of friends narrowed on Pherrie Kim, the Publicist and Guest Relations Manager for Guvnor. These two are so close that she was one of those who advised Doreen about the Raunchy Butt Show before Doreen told her that the paparrazi just stormed the back stage.
Pherrie Kim recently thanked her exes for having given her the space that enabled her to find Mr. Right: "I just wanna thank you all for paving a way for me to find my magnet, my Scorpio, my husband, my LA...if u hadn't let go...I'd never have found such happiness!!"
Today, the publicist was asking her close pals on what live bands they could recommend or better still what their views were on having a live band at her wedding.
Doreen who claims that she has only had two men in her life and currently not seeing anyone strongly believes that, that is a sign of insecurity. A few days back, a list of men in Pherrie Kim's life were published in one of the leading tabloids, but according to her, that is hogwash as summarized in her latest tweet.
"It Doesn't matter what the Tabloids say.. the only truth in tabloids is the date. I know that it takes a real man to stand for his country..and I'm proud of this man and always will be. God bless Ug,God bless America, God bless Mr. Lubs oh yeah, and God bless the tabloids too...they need it the most"
Meanwhile, Pherrie Kim has embarked on perfecting the 180 leg-stretch which is one of those tips that must have been given to her by her senga's as she prepares for her introduction ceremony next month.
The Goodlyfe duo, Moze Radio and Weasel TV are in talks with Vee Beiby, a top video vixen who has featured in Prezzo and P-Unit's videos. Vee Beiby got the You Guy video banned on Citizen TV just by the way she did her thing, so the next time you see her in a Goodlyfe video, do not wonder.
One ardent fan of the model was overheard saying that: "This is the type of video vixen who can steal the show from the artiste through her sexploitation and the way she booty shakes."
We recently asked our dear readers through facebook which track they would rather listen to between Goodlyfe's 'Magnetic' and P-Unit's 'You Guy', a good number of them were tending to the side of You Guy. The Goodlyfe are determined to making their weight felt in the Ugandan music industry and among others, they are now considering to feature top models in their forthcoming videos.
Through Twitter, the Goodlyfe guys first asked the plus size model, Vee Beiby if she had Ugandan roots given her booty size and curves, the socialite and entreprenuer replied that she was 100% Kenyan. Meanwhile, It's not clear between Moze and Weasel who writes their tweets.
They have just released two fresh hits this week, 'Ekyaama' and 'Crucify' in addition to 'Magnetic' and 'Obudde' which are already doing very well on both TV and FM radio stations.
Some of their old songs like 'Nakutamani', 'Nyumbani' and 'Nakudata' are still worth listening to songs. The duo will be launching their next album in May but before that, the duo will be live in Amsterdam on March 30, 2013.
"Thank you WARID TELECOM for the WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE AWARD in entertainment. I'm humbled to have been nominated with such strong, ambitious Ugandan women. I look up to so many of you. I dedicate this award to my mother. You are my inspiration."
Those were the words of multi-award winning artiste Juliana Kanyomozi on getting her latest Woman of Substance Award from telecommunication company, WARID Telecom. The awarding ceremony was held at Serena Hotel on Wednesday night. Last year, Judith Babirye took this particular award.
The awards were recognising women who have excelled in several areas of life that included among others internationally active women like Winnie Byanyima and Noeline Kareeba, the brain behind TASO and the HIV fight in Uganda. The awards were part of the celebrations to mark the International Women's Day.
Vera Sidika aka Vee Beiby is one of the babes in the P-Unit video that shook what her mama gave her leading to the banning of the video on one of Kenya's TV stations.The swimsuit model and fashionista who stays in Nairobi and is famous for her big booty went an extra mile and nicknamed it Roxxie.
Vera loves Kampala and she was spotted in Munyonyo last December. She also hangs out at Sheraton Hotel Kampala while in UG. According to our sources, "Vee Beibe was in Kampala for a three day visit last November and later came back in December around christmas period, and during that time, she was spotted in a Range Rover Evoque UAR series."
The Kenyan babe is linked to many international stars. When Akon was in Kenya last October performing at the Carnivore Grounds, Vee Beiby was spotted chilling with the Senegalese-American RnB star at the hotel, he even let her wear his Konvict chain confirming just how close they were.
The booty star was also spotted with one of the P-Square singers when they were in Kenya. For now you can enjoy the 'You Guy' video to get a feel of Vee and P-Unit featuring Collo.
Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi aka Barbie - has Bobi Wine's portrait inked on her back followed by the word forever. This is another way of saying; I will love you forever and ever. A few months back, there were rumours doing the rounds that the couple was on the verge of breaking up but Barbie came up and said what she uttered 12 years back that she is here to stay.
Bad Black - Then came Bad Black who was better referred to as Mad Black by the way she used to spend before her source of dime came to the lime light. Bad Black was in love with Meddie and felt that the best way to prove her love was to ink her body with Meddie's name.
Bad Black dashed to a fake tattoist who simply used a marker to come up with a fake tattoo and got quite an amount. Shanita later identified an authentic source that inked Meddie's name on her back. Meddie is still in jail though and Bad Black is a fugitive suspected to be in Malaysia. It's not clear if that huge tattoo on her back still exists as the two fell out badly.
Others with tattoos include: Juliana Kanyomozi on her arm with name inscriptions of her dad, Gerald and her son Keron. In her latest profile on NTV, you can see Maurice Ochol caressing it in admiration.
Zari's Tattoo - Is a combination of 10 stars and initials of her three sons PDQ - Pinto, Didy and Quincy plus one of a coloured flower on her legs. Other tattoos on her body, Isaac Lugudde might be of help here.
Isaac Lugudde - The Big Brother hopeful has so many tattoos on his body that there's hardly any space left though he says, should he go to the Big Brother House, he will add more tattoos to do with Big Brother Africa.
A few months back when Lugudde was still dating Zari, he put 'The Boss Lady' tattoo on his ribs followed by a verse from the bible Gen 2:18 which says that: "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him." but the two have since split and moved on with Zari bouncing back to the father of her three kids as Lugudde hooked up with a one Cynthia.
News of Princess Ruth Komuntale breaking up with Christopher Thomas was spreading like wild fire for a greater part of last month leaving many wondering what could have befallen the royal couple.
Through her wall, the princess came out clearly and stated that its what she says that matters and not the media. "Love the smile and the happiness, Amen. Scr#w what the media says! It's what I say that matters!"
When the story ran in one of the local tabloids, these were the words of Thomas: "Now I see how the media can lie and run people away from their own country...God is good may be they will come out with the truth one day."
On Feb 22, Princess Komuntale turned 24 and through his wall, Duke Christopher Thomas tweeted this: I'm happy my wife turned 24 and I'm very proud of her. In November 2013, the couple will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary.
Isaac Katende aka Kasuku and Daniella were yesterday back in the Makindye based court over the hot slap that resulted in a torn shirt and a destroyed rosary. Daniella has now been asked to pay Ugx 221,500 in damages.
Kasuku has also been asked to apologise to Daniella on Radio and the blog where he posted the Seguku house remarks and never to mention anything about Daniella be it positive or negative.
The compesation was broken down as follows: The torn shirt was valued at Shs20,000, rosary at Shs1,500/- and treatment 200,000/- Regarding the treatment, Kasuku had to seek services of a masseuse who massaged his slapped cheek to ensure that all was well.
This is the second case involving the Mayanja's to be cleared in a span of two months. First, It was the Karamagi case in which Chameleone was accused of torching an intruder in his Seguku house on boxing day, but that is a thing of the past after it turned out that he had no case to answer and now the Daniella slap.
Now that this was an out of court settlement, the couple was seen a few days back jet skiing at Spenah Beach in Entebbe celebrating the positive developments.
In August last year, Sylvia Owori's Toyboy Malik Kalisa was arrested and detained briefly after businessman Moses Kalungi who refers to himself as "Bill Gates" reported a case of theft and assault. Malik was later released on bail prompting these words from the fashion guru:
"Malik is no thief Kalungi is just looking for cheap publicity. How can he be robbed yet he moves with up to 20 bodyguards. If his issue is with me, let him bring it to me and not someone trying to make something for themselves. Its sad to know many innocent people are in jail just because someone has money and can pay there way to get some arrested."
Interestingly, On releasing Malik, he equally went to police to file a case of assault on "Bill Gates" claiming that it was "Bill Gates" who had punched the boxer and since then, police has been hunting down the former LC3 Makindye Division boss.
On Tuesday, police detectives managed to arrest Kalungi following a tip-off, but taking him down wasn't easy either as he was armed with a pistol which he threatened to use. Police was able to over power him though.
Initially, he had tried to drive off when he noticed that the police had approached him but as fate could have it, his Ipsum car had been clamped by the managers of street parking, Multiplex.
A police pick-up appeared to take him away but he requested that he travels in a friend's car. Malik was once interested in Sylvia Owori and from her words above, she clearly says that...If his issue is with me, let him bring it to me and not someone trying to make something for themselves.
South African based Ugandan tycoon Sulaiman Kabangala Mbuga better known as SK Mbuga is not having a smooth ride following his closeness to the 'Kuzina Nawe' singer Leila Kayondo.
The tycoon who has a passion for parading Hummers is having it rough with his wife, Zalwango in Sseguku, also Leila Kayondo's sister. The now pregnant mother of the tycoon's three boys has warned Leila to keep off her man.
As Leila was getting to terms with this, the tycoon's Pretoria based wife, Ayanda of four children is equally not happy with the singer. Leila was putting up at their Pretoria based house during the last trip that saw her record her latest music videos, but by the time she left South Africa, the last thing Ayanda wanted to see was Leila.
This is a developing story and all we are doing for now is to watch that space as more drama unfolds.
The tycoon has three wives in total, Fathima of Indian origin who is currently pregnant and has one daughter, Ayanda in South Africa with 4 kids and Zalwango from Uganda with 3 boys.
Guvnor's publicist Pherrie Kim is in love again after hooking up with Iraq based security guard, Abdul Lubwama and preparations for the introduction ceremony are in high gear. Pherrie who is about 4-moths pregnant is deeply and madly in love.
The introduction ceremony will be held in two months time. She is so happy about being a mother and a wife at the same time but that was not all, she also had a message for her exes that include Omulangira Suuna among others.
"Quick shout out to my exes...I just wanna thank you all for paving a way for me to find my magnet, my Scorpio, my husband, my LA...if you hadn't let go...I'd never have found such happiness!!"
Pherrie concluded with this line: ''Allah bless en reward u with the same", before assuring Mr. Lubs how Mrs. Lubs was drowning in his love. It should be noted that, In May 2012, Pherrie's Ex O*S Converted to Islam as a condition for dating his current girl friend, Aisha Sencha.
The 'Kuzina Nawe' singer Leila Kayondo and star singer Jose Chameleone have just completed recording their 'Hooray' video. In the video, Chameleone is donning a black T-shirt with a Badilisha word, which is also Chameleone's forthcoming album.
This move seals her as one of the artistes that will perform during the Badilisha album launch at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds on the 26-April-2013.
The former Dream Galz member was in South Africa two months back where she recorded three videos.
It is widely believed that a South African based SK Mbuga sponsored her trip plus the three videos that were recorded, however, the 'Guluma' singer has been quick to disassociate Mbuga from having sponsored her latest 'Hooray' Video with Chameleone.
Leila Kayondo is behind songs like 'Kiluma Nyo', 'Nkwagala', 'Rudi Nyumbani', a collabo with Dan Flavor. Leila also has collabo's with Aziz Azion and Dr. Hilderman. A collabo with the music doctor, Jose Chameleone is certainly going to do her music good.
The Badilisha star Jose Chameleone was over the weekend spotted with his wife Daniella at Spenah Beach in Entebbe cruising on a jet ski. The lovers looked like newly weds on a honeyman as Daniella clung on to Chameleone as he raced away.
The couple has of late been in court for various issues. Chameleone was cleared in the Karamagi saga and there was no better way of celebrating that milestone other than shooting his Badilisha video which happens to be his latest Album.
Daniella on the other hand will be in court again on the 28-Feb-2013. Insider sources have it that Daniella is in talks with Kasuku lawyers to have the case settled out of court.
Regarding Chameleone's latest Album launch, this is what he has to say: "We have never been this ready! 26th April 2013 #BADILISHA live.. the Grounds are Waiting,the drums are roaring and all shall sing along the sounds of LEONE ISLAND,the #Badilisha Dance shall be Synonymous with all and even the sick and eldery shall disaprove their sympathisers ..#BADILISHA LIVE...2013, these are not promises,these are guarantees for a great nite on 26th April... when we officially usher in the muscial year."
It's been 10 days since the Big Talent boss Eddie Kenzo went to South Africa to record a video and oh yes he's been having fun too while there and among others took off time to go for a football match at Green point stadium. However, he was one of those standing while obstructing those behind him something that left a lot to be desired.
It's not clear if he was protesting the bad game or he had sight problems that stopped him from getting a clear view of the game, but one thing si for sure, he was getting more than he had paid for by standing in an area where most fans were calmly seated and following the game.
This was followed by a confusing post on his wall: "South African temanyi kapiila nfuunyo big up to this white man wakabi." Now knowing Kenzo, those could be lyrics to his song that he went to record in South Africa and a video shooting opportunity emulating the likes of rapper Navio.
Moments after his posting, some of his fans were requesting that he should post in English or get someone to manage his account but the 'Tondopeeka' singer was quick to rubbish that saying: "..Nze sente nzifunye mululimi Luganda ate lwemanyi kati gwe faa.." meaning that: I've made all my money singing in Luganda and It's the language I understand well.
Meanwhile, on top of being so close to singer Rema, the 'Sumbusa' star is rumoured to have ballooned some Swedish based sugar mummy, watch this space!
Fashionista Sylvia Owori has launched her latest website sylviaowori.co.ug that will be able to handle online sales. Sylvia is one of the personalities in East Africa when it comes to fashion and has been in the industry for the last eleven years.
Sylvia in one of her earlier tweets before the launch wrote that: "You will now be able to buy our collections online and deliveries can be made within Uganda and Kenya."
The website was launched on Saturday 23.Feb.2013 at the Sylvia Owori shop located at Garden City complex on 3rd floor. This is the second website the fashionista is launching.
Today was the launch of the website and late night shopping sponsored by Redds. At the time of the launch, the site had collections ranging from ladies handbags, clothes and women shoes among others though it did not have a shopping cart.
The website is up though some fields are not yet operational like the create account, login and Contact us, hopefully these will be addressed in due course, short of that, it was a nice site.
It may be over between basket ball star and now Big Brother Africa hopeful Isaac Lugudde and socialite Zari, but that has not stopped him from reminiscing the steamy moments they had with Zari even after hooking up with his latest gal, Cynthia.
Talking to one publication, the ex-basket ball player was responding on how good Zari was when it comes to bed minton, this was his response:
"Dude, bi#ch knows how to play her game and she is wicked n wild. She's a mixture of an Alien and zombie in bed. It takes a very fit man to get her fixed properly and this must be the reason why she is into playing games."
Zari was a bit calm in her response: "Negative people will always try to drag you down to their level. Love them but rise above them!" This sent the Kampala Nite Lights Isaac Lugudde spitting fire.
"Nobody ever trashed u or did anyone mention ur name apart frm if we talk and that's a no! Nor did I give out ur number! Attention seeker? Plz, nobody is the Boss like u in that department! Ur a drama Queen n brother can careless! By now if u don't know journalists spin stories, then ur mad and don't know the industry! I've been silent lettin u thro shots, but now ur crossing the line! Sell ur rented Lambo 2 buy class."
It was at this point that Zari realised a mini cyber war was erupting, so she opted out with this post: "Almost lost tonite it but I remembered this: Pick your battles. You don't have to show up to every argument you're invited to! Yippppy it worked! Good night!"
Isaac was forced to remove the above post as confirmed in this last post on the current saga. "I removed the post bcuz u know what, I'm better than that n won't waste my time on that subject! I don't nor will I disrespect you! I am better n my fb peoples deserve better! I once had kind words of endearment n I will remain on that positive note! But don't let the media or spinned journalist stories take u out of character! Take care n focus on ur family. I'm doing me! Peace LK4"
Jackson Makini aka Prezzo is back to Kenya after spending a week in Lagos, Nigeria where he had gone to spend a late Valentine's eve with fellow Big Brother Housemate, Goldie Harvey who unfortunately passed on before Prezzo could land.
The Kenyan rapper who landed in Nairobi on Wednesday night. was forced to leave Nigeria as Goldie's family had not yet released the burial program.
The late singer's family is yet to announce burial arrangements which will enable the Kenyan rapper to plan accordingly, so as opposed to staying in Nigeria, he decided to come back to Kenya.
Goldie Harvey succumbed to hypertension as revealed by the official autopsy results that were released by Kennis -Music, a label that she was signed to.
Sources close to Prezzo confirm that he visited Goldie's family at their Lagos home. Unlike Andrew Harvey who has been responding to interviews as he enjoys fish and chips in the UK, Prezzo has declined to attend to any interviews and can only do so after taking some ample rest.
Bad Black's ex lover, David Greenhalgh, has discovered an account with at least Shs2b and wants court to freeze it since it's part of the money that was stolen from him. He also wants Meddie's assets frozen so he can recover part of the 11bn that was embezzled from him.
In December last year, Meddie Ssentongo warned the likes of Ivan Ssemwanga who thought that they had money to watch out for him, a few days of that warning, the gun charges were brought to his attention.
Meddie had got a lighter sentence of 18months compared to Bad Black who was given a four year sentence, did only six months and now at large after being released for breast treatment.
Meddie is of the view that much as he lost the first case, he will deal with Greenhalgh in court on the issue of freezing his assets. ''I have never stolen any money from him, nor his employees or company." Meddie told those who were asking him about the latest developments.
Following Goldie's sudden death on Valentine's day, an autopsy report has been released a week later and it reveals that the pop singer died of Hypetension. Some media reports were speculating on the cause of Goldie's death but this report will now put the drug related speculation fears to rest.
The Medical Certificate of Cause of Death that was released by her record label - Kennis Music indicates that the singer suffered a terminal 'hypertensive heart' disease which resulted in 'intracerebellar haemorrhage.' The report further indicated that the singer aged 31, died at 7:30pm on Valentine's day.
It was signed by Dr. Oyewole of the Department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.
We had earlier told of how Prezzo was flying back to Kenya following threats from Goldie's husband, Andrew Harvey to leave him and other family members to mourn Goldie's passing in peace. Prezzo has defied all that and gone to Goldie's parents to mourn with them.
City socialite and glamour gal Esther Akankwasa is pissed with Nico Damminger who promised to be around during Valentine's day but failed to make it. Just last month, Esther and Nico got engaged and since then, Nico refers to Esther as Kuchi Kuchi...Oh Baby.
Esther has been very sad this past week but Nico has promised to make up for the bad Valentine's day.
The German National sent out these words to his love: "I miss you, my love ...and there are moments I hardly can stand it to be thousands of miles away without you at my side... but I keep the faith coz I know that we just need a bit of patience...that this our love is worth all that....and that we will be together again soon! onsula kumutiima, mukyala wange!!!"
Nico told one of his pals that; "Esther is a the most wonderful gal I have ever met. She's my everything, my precious little diamond!"
Meanwhile, close pals say Esther is preggars and that is the very reason she did not pick Big Brother Africa forms this year.
Ugaflow star Navio is in studio making final touches on his latest track, 'Lekakwenyumuliza' Going by the title, it appears the singer has been doing more rehearsals to perfect his Luganda and at this rate, he will be releasing more Luganda hits.
'Ngaalo', 'Bugumu', 'Kata' and 'Miliki' which he did with the Late Goldie Harvey from Nigeria are some of his tracks. 'We Burn' is a collabo by Navio and the then Blu3, but it's still worth listening to several years later.
On Feb 11, Navio had just made a post on his wall announcing that the Miliki video is about to be released not knowing that three days later, Goldie will be no more.
Navio's tribute to the late Goldie:
"My little sister has passed away. Goldie Harvey honourably Represented Nigeria in the Big Brother House, and was on the fast track to changing the Industry. She believed in a bigger Africa, that went beyond her own borders. Goldie Harvey was an inspiration to me. And will always be my little sis. Rest in Peace Babe."
Thanks to the Big Brother Africa exposure, the Zambian star, Mampi Mukape's Valentine show at Hotel Africana and Resort Beach in Entebbe were a success. The Africana show had over 5,000 guests and the Resort Beach show had over 10,000 in attendance.
On Valentine's day, revellers had filled up the people's space by 7:00pm. Performances kicked off shortly after from various artistes that included Iryn Namubiru, members of the Eagles Production among others.
A few minutes to eleven, Bebe Cool hit the stage doing Akamwako with the help of the Gagamel crew members. Mampi's UB5 Band took up the stage to pave way for the Swililili star.
Mampi hit the stage at about 11:00pm clad in a tight short dress which attracted the front row men to get a glimpse of what was under prompting her to perform her Luganda composition, 'Otunulaki' loosely translated as; What are you looking at?
Mampi then did quite a number of her Zambian songs which were not known to Ugandans but her portable queen dancers were every minute worth watching as Mampi changed costumes.
Mampi returned in hot pants that could allow her do the Mampi Dance. It's when she performed the famous 'Swililili' song that revellers who were clad in red and black, celebrating Valentines day joined her.
The show then swtiched to 'Why' a version with Bobi Wine which sent the crowd wild. Bobi Wine joined her to do the remix version. Mampi jumped onto Bobi who had just enough stamina as Bobi looked her in the eyes saying: ''Ndi Muna Masaka Oli Muna Lusaka....Why..!"
Mampi wrapped up the show with 'Walilowelela'. Revellers were seen walking back happy after getting their monies worth. Mampi assured her fans who were linkingher thrilling performance to ganja that, that wasn't ganja it was the Zambian skill at work.
Socialite Zari and her three boys went ice skating for fun but unfortunately for her, she is now nursing minor injuries after dropping hard on her knees. Zari saw her boys doing the sport with ease so she decided to give it a shot.
It was not easy for the leggy mom of three who did move on ice for seconds before falling hard. She resorted to what she does best, tweeting and this is what she had to say:
"Ice skating isn't for everyone...lol This was a bad idea. My boys and bro enjoyed themselves while I fell hard, I gave up and just decided to watch them" Zari has vowed not to stay away from ice skating to the time she perfects.
It's not the first time Zari is getting caught up in similar situations. Last December, she was dancing with her high-heels trying out all sorts of latest strokes she could manage but the heel gave way sending her to the floor.
Ice skating can be done for various reasons that may include health benefits and leisure among others. Zari definitely tried the sport for leisure purposes but ended up paying heavily.
Meanwhile, It's not clear if it was the fall or the weather that let her nipples point in that tight top.
Today is Valentine's day which is also the last day for Big Brother hopefuls to submit their applications to join Africa's biggest reality TV show that will start broadcasting on channel 198 in May. Isaac Lugudde is one of the applicants.
Through his wall, Zari's ex first asked a few of his pals if he should go ahead and apply for the reality show? Many of them(mostly female friends) encouraged him to give it a shot saying that with him in the Big Brother House for 91 days, Uganda will have the chance to bring the money home.
Isaac is now concentrating on how to impress the Big Brother team when they eventually come to Uganda for auditions that will determine the final line-up to enter the BBA8 house. Desire Luzinda, Straka are among the female housemates who are suspected to have given it a shot.
Gaetano has so far played the best game among the Ugandan male representatives but Lugudde has a strong feeling that being good at basket ball, full body tattoos, English accent, Obama smile and having dated Zari, the lamborghini lady, he will be able to blow the the judges and eventually Africa.
Meanwhile, Isaac Lugudde replaced Zari with a fresh Makerere University graduate only identified as Cynthia.
Gospel star Lubega George Timothy aka Exodus has revealed why he was arrested alongside drunkards. Last Saturday as police was carrying out it's drink-drive operation, Exodus and McKats were among those arrested.
Many were still getting to terms with how a staunch man of God would appear in the that racket. To make matters worse, he was on Agatalliko Nfuufu which made many to believe that this was news with 'no dust,'
Exodus tweeted a copy of his expired driving permit, the reason he was arrested bringing fears to rest that he was drunk. The singers driving permit had expired over two months back and he was not aware.
On being stopped, he was asked to get out of his car by the cop and he wondered why, but he was told that his DP had long expired. In his latest tweet he says: "Who said the road will only be smooth!! We shall be persecuted for his sake, but I have no FEAR, This one too shall pass Agataliiko Nfuufu."
Jose Chameleone's wife Daniella Atim Mayanja had always been the reserved type at least compared to Bobi Wine's Barbie and Bebe Cool's Zuena but from the time she slapped Kuku Wazabanga, a journo with Dembe FM, it changed that perception.
It all started with Kuku claiming that the Sseguku house which Chameleone has since left after relocating to Muyenga was about to be taken by loan sharks. Daniella wondered how that could be possible and yet she was in possession of the land title in question, so she drove to the Monitor Publications.
It was during that visit that the two allegedly engaged in a fight. On Monday afternoon(Feb 11), Daniella Atim appeared before the Makindye Chief Magistrates Court for fighting in a public place.
Criminal summons were issued to Kuku as well but he did not show up. The mother of three denied the charges. She was later released on bail after two members of the Leone Island Crew executed a non cash bail of shs10m each.
Chameleone was around the court to support his dear wife. The case was adjourned to Feb 28, 2013.
Singer Liane has resorted to expert fitness as she tries to cut down on her weight. Last month, Lilian Nakaweesi aka Liane revealed how she was looking for someone who could help her regain the size she had three years back that comprised of a flat tummy, curvy hips and so on.
Lianne has now found that trainer and working the sweat out is her top most priority. Lianne's main goal of hitting the gym is to cut on her weight that is threatening to interfere with her stage performances, need to look out for her latest video, 'Mr. DJ' to see how she wiggles her stuff.
The 'Holiday' singer hit the fitness center recently and pulled some sexiest work out styles that left many shocked at her level of fitness. During the gym session, the trainer kept on telling her: ''Kiss the carpet you can make it..." leaving other people in the gym amused.
The bummy singer who proved that she was very flexible and still determined to regain that fabulous look she once had has promised to cut down on her love for pork which she admits has caused all the extra pounds forcing her turn to a vegetarian diet.
Gospel Artistes Exodus and Mc Kats were on Saturday night among those who were arrested during the swoop commonly referred to as a 'Kiddo' that was carried out on Rubaga road next to Wallet Pub. Police raided the spot and started checking all motorists in search for drunkards behind the wheels.
The blood alcohol content (BAC) from McKats breath sample was twice the lethal dose leaving the cops with no option but to arrest him. The NTV Exposed host and freelance MC who also is into gospel music looked pretty scared cursing why he had taken a little too much.
In a related development, Gospel dance-hall artist Exodus was among those arrested as police carried out its drink-driving operation. Exodus was equally taken to police and just yesterday, his footage was part of Agataliiko Nfuufu's line up.
Kats MC being found drunk was open ended because that is more in line with his McJob especially when he at times has to do his job while faced with empty chairs(SiSqo) so he resorts to the bottle to nurse his frustrations.
Exodus maintains his stand that he was not drunk and he is now blaming Agataliiko Nfuufu for cooking up things at least from his latest tweet: "I love how Agataliiko Nfuufu twists the truth around to suit their interest!!report truth with integrity"
Exodus, Over to you; why did you end up at the police station then?
Bebe Cool's wife Zuena Kirema was last night driving from Theatre Labonita where she was attending the HM awards in which Bebe Cool emerged as the best artiste. Zuena told the guests that Bebe Cool was not able to be with them on the night of the awards as he was busy attending to many concerts.
Zuena was in the company of the Gagamel manager Tick Tah who went with her to pick Bebe's two awards that included: Aritste of the year and Best Reggae Artiste. Bobi Wine and Chameleone got one award each.
As Owa Boda singer left Theatre Labonita a few minutes past mid-night (Feb10), she encountered a nasty road experience that has still left her in shock several hours later.
One drunk fellow behind a wheel that looked like a Toyota Ipsum drove recklessly almost ramming into the Big Size Hummer leaving Zuena screaming for her life. They managed to control the monster ride to the side.
Zuena is now nursing stomach upsets which she strongly attributes to the shock she suffered.
City glamour gal also former Bad Black's hanger-on Rasheeda Masudi is in advanced stages of introducing the man of her life. She was over heard telling some of her pals that she had found the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with.
Previously, Rasheeda was linked to DJ Shiru and Eddy Kenzo among others but now she has hooked up this yet to be identified guy who recently took her to Dubai where they spent some quality time together.
On coming back, she had stocked g-strings and clothes mostly for her shop along Wilson road under the guise that they were her personal effects but the customs officials at the airport did not buy any of that. She was asked to pay taxes.
"How can you ask someone to pay taxes for items they bought for personal use." She lamented. Meanwhile, some folks along Wilson road saw her strutting her stuff in a yellow legging and multi-coloured top that clearly revealed her curves.
The introduction ceremony is slated to take place in two months time from now.
The multi billion wedding by Prince Kareem and city party animal Tracy Bora is not about to take place after the prince threw in the towel. According to previous events, this year was ripe enough for the couple to be engaged in wedding talks but from the look of things, the affair has shifted from bad to worse.
Prince Karim and Tracy Bora are the latest couple to join the broken hearts club. The latest info coming in is that Tracy Bora has stopped wearing her engagement ring that cost Prince charming a fortune, changed her facebook status from Engaged to Separated and also deleted most of Prince Kareem's photos.
Tracy is now residing in Kololo with her two kids. Bora has however, blamed a one Sumayya for her woes. Apparently, Sumayya has been connecting Meddie's Ex, Prossy to the Prince and in the process revealing a lot to that left Prince Darling with no choice but to throw in the towel.
This war started a month back when Prossy and and Bora bumped into each other at Speke Resort Munyonyo. A war of words ensued but security was quick at quelling the situation before the gals could tear each other into pieces.
Tracy has now taken the war to facebook and in her latest posting on the matter, she refers to Sumayya as a: "bi##h and a whore who can still get no man but walks on the streets of Kampala in daily search for men."
Basketball star Isaac Lugudde is in love again and this time round, he is more than determined to make it work after his affair with wife ended up in a divorce. The baskteballer struck up a friendship with Zari which did not last.
The latest from his camp is that Isaac has hooked up a hot babe and the two have been secretly romancing for sometime now. 'Once bitten, twice shy' so the star has even told off some babes who were trying to poke him through facebook.
In his posting, he made it clear that he was a player no more and his latest catch can only be compared to a Jupiter.
"I never knew how many people actually can be so negative to the fact that a brother is settled down! One minute they call me a home wrecker, player and blah blah blah, and the next minute they are mad that I am settled and happy.
In fact, they put bets to see if I will be with another female or get bored. Really, I can put my b#lls on this, I am happy as long as she is. I am not perfect and make a lot of mistakes, but a brother isn't landing anywhere else.
I am not throwing things in anyones face nor is that my objective, but if your dating someone and you put ur partner and self out there, it limits your playing ability. Trust me, I know best. So, leave my inbox alone. Peace"
Forget the bosslady ink tattoo on his ribs, Isaac has got himself a rib and close friends are asking him to introduce her to his family.
Uganda's music heavy weight Jose Chameleone has officially released the Badilisha video, which also happens to be the title for his 2013 album.
The star who recently shifted to Muyenga from his Seguku house after ten years is all set for the launch. Valu Valu in 2012 was massive but the Badilisha Concert is likely to surpass Valu-Valu by far and large.
Chameleone has been tussling with the Karamagi case for the last one month but this seems like a thing of the past after he was cleared by the Director of Public Prosecution. On being cleared, completing the Badilisha video and shifting to a new house were top on his agenda.
Chameleone says that the date is 'olwede bukuuti' meaning that the date has been confirmed though as we earlier told you that the search for a relatively bigger venue is the reason the actual date has not been communicated.
It's a new year and new music from all corners is being released by both upcoming and established artistes. Chameleone's young brother, AK47 has also released his version of 'Gal A Bubble' video which he did with DiziZa. You know Konshens version but this version is 'Oligiono' read original by AK47 though you must be 18 and over to watch this!.
The Goodlyfe Crew are back with their latest club banger 'Magnetic' and at this rate, they are determined to take over the region. The video was shot from Club Venom in Kabalagala and beaches around Entebbe.
Those who have seen the video say you can't miss Sheebah Karungi who happens to be one of the video vixens strutting her stuff.
The song which already seems like an anthem to some FM stations has a booming dance-hall beat that sounds like a fresh track by Buju Banton as Weasel and Moze do their thing in the you're Magnetic tune.
The Goodlyfe Crew will be launching their latest 'Obudde' album on May 10, 2013 at Hotel Africana that will see them perform their lates collabo with Desire Luzinda, 'Magnetic' and 'Can't Let You Go' which was once number one on MTV Top 10.
Interestingly, their track beat Beyonce's 'I Was Here' to take the number one slot on MTV. Just last year, Nigeria's P-Square shared the same stage with the Goodlyfe Crew doing their debut track 'Nakudata'
Friends and relatives to Michael Kasirye, socialite Zari Hassan's former bodyguard have reported a case of a missing person with Jinja road police station. Kalisimaati as he was fondly called by pals was last seen at Zari's All White Party at Guvnor last year.
"It's over a month now since we last heard of Michael and to make matters worse, all his known lines are off," a family source said. Kalisimaati used to work at the Centenary based BBQ Lounge until November 2012.
Kalisimaati was one of Zari's most trusted bouncers, but during the night of the White Party, he received a call which he had to attend to from a less noisy area, so he chose to go outside the dancing hall. That was the last time he was seen until today.
Police is now appealing to whoever has any information leading to his whereabouts to come out and help as they carry out investigations in the hunt for Michael Kasirye.
Zari and Ivan left the country this morning after a four-day visit that saw Zari stock her Garden City based stores with Valentine wear and assorted gift items.
Socialite ZaHa is in town to re-stock her Garden city based Zari Jewels and The Renaissance Man stores as part of preparations for Valentine's day.
Zari jetted into the country on Friday and straight on hit Guvnor though she was careful this time not to fall with her high heels as she did the gangnam style. The socialite spent a greater part of Saturday stocking her stores with latest outfits.
The Renaissance Man was stocked with latest designer suits for men, Jeans plus urban style mens wrist watches. Zari Jewels has been stocked with the best Valentine's gifts for 'Her' and for the ladies, The Renaissance Man can be your one stop for Valentine's day gift ideas.
Zari Jewels and the Renaissance Man are located at Garden City basement on Yusuf Lule road.
Chameleone has been forced to quit his Sseguku based house to Muyenga for security reasons. The singer says that his security and that of his family was compromised.
"My security and that of my family was compromised in Seguku. Therefore it was prudent to acquire another place as the security issues at Seguku got fixed. Again this will allow for the renovation work that has been going on at Seguku for the last 4 months get finished and done more efficiently. Leone island family, introducing my new hut in Muyenga."
Earlier reports had indicated that the Moto-Moto star had moved all his posh rides that included an Escalade, BMW, and a Range Rover Sport plus other valuables to his in-laws in Bina something that the star was quick to refute. He even invited some folks to come to Sseguku and prove that the allegations were wrong.
It has not been a bed of roses for the 'Badilisha' singer for the last one month following the death of Robert Karamagi who broke into his house late last year only to allegedly torch himself from the singer's house.
Chameloene's movements to his Sseguku house during day time were greatly affected after that incident. This has in the end left him with no choice but to relocate to Muyenga. The kids were seen enjoying the new home which is well equipped with a swimming pool and a quiet neighborhood.
Meanwhile, the singer is in his final stages of launching his latest album, Badilisha. Insider sources say that a search for a venue that can handle a crowd bigger than that of the Valu-Valu launch is on.
The 'Why' remix by Bobi Wine and Mampi is out and can be downloaded from from Wine's sound cloud audio platform.
Ragga Dee is on record for having plagiarized Mampi's Swilili track to come up with his Swetietie Luganda version. During his Unplugged show at Club Silk last Thursday, Ragga Dee said that he has over 100 songs, has not done any collabo with any artiste and so, it's not his problem that one of his songs can sound like that of any other artiste.
Regarding the Switietie song, Ragga Dee told his fans that may be DJ Shiru is to blame because he is the one who brought the track to him to do a remix for promotional purposes. Mampi has already confirmed her Uganda show on Valentine's day at Hotel Africana.
Just yesterday, the Ghetto gladiator released a four minute 'Why' remix which is a combination of Muna Masaka vs Muna Lusaka lyrics. Bobi Wine is one of the artistes that are lined up to perform with Zambia's RnB artiste on Valentine's day.
Those who have listened to the 'Why' remix say it's good food for the ears.
We recently told of how Judith Heard had gone to the US to launch her 2African Girls clothing line. The former super model has now released photos for the event with models who were clad in stunning outfits.
The 4-hour event was held on Jan 19 at BeHuman Art Gallery and before she comes back to Kampala, JH will host another fashion show on Valentine's day in the same venue showcasing their latest spring-summer collections.
Judith Heard partnered with a US based designer Michelle Okosun of Preme Fashions and together they came up with 2African Girls. Days after the launch, one person by the name of Kiah made a comment on one of the articles saying that:
"I was there at the venue and I didn't see her at the location/function...the press was organised by a totally different person, she just had some "mudaala" but she never launched anything.."
Now with the above pictures, it's clear the person who made that comment must have been at a different location or fashion show.
Judith Heard simply laughed it off in her tweet: "Now I really believe am the best, just read a comment on ugandaonline and someone saying I didn't launch 2AfricanGals in Houston,Tx ahahahaha."
Cinderella Sanyu going by her professional name Cindy will be holding her first ever solo concert tonight at Kati Kati grounds. Friday started off as a wet day but some of her die hard fans have vowed to be at Kati-Kati come rain or shine.
Cindy was fired from the Blu3 gal group a few years back something that helped her to be the star she is today.
Silk Events is using their latest equipment to ensure that the stage and sound are awesome. This being her first concert, Cindy believes that her fans have mastered her songs like 'Amateeka', 'Mbikooye', 'Total Satisfaction', 'Love' among others and will be able to sing along.
Most of the Proceeds from the show will be channelled to Hands for Hope charity, a not for profit organisation which reminds Cindy of her own upbringing. Cindy is engaged to Mario and together they are blessed with a beautiful daughter, Amani.
Today will also mark the first big collaboration with the other Blu-3 members Jackie and Lillian implying that they will form now on be working on a number of projects as a team though they are comfortable where they are pursuing their solo careers.
Other artistes expected to grace the Cindy show include Bobi Wine, Bebe Cool, GNL Zamba, Goodlyfe Crew and new kid on the block Yung Mullo.
In the recent past, foreign artistes have been advertised but in the end it turns out to be a no-show but for the case of Mampi, she has even been forced to speak Luganda to confirm that she will make it on Valentine's day.
Zambia's RnB singer and also the former Big Brother All stars contestant has even confirmed the Uganda show on her wall: "Uganda are you reeeeaaaaddddyyyy I can tell you that this is gonna be the biggest concert ever..and Iam super excited are you??? Valentine's day and the day after love you all and see you Thur!!!!"
Bebe Cool and Bobi Wine among others will curtain raise for Mampi Mukape. Last month, Mampi was supposed to perform in Malawi at a MultiChoice function but she did not turn up.
Regarding the Swilili version of Ragga Dee, Mampi has forgiven him but also demanded a public apology and promising that he won't do it again. Ragga Dee is expected to comment on the same during his unplugged show at Club Silk on (Jan31).
If you thought that beef was only in the music industry, then you just have to read on.
Following the official communication confirming the split of the Crackers Comedy group last Monday, the Crackers founder Patrick Idringi aka Salvador who is currently in South Africa for a comedy stint dashed to his wall to comment on the split, and in his message he says:
"When a child leaves home to Start their own Journey, a father has nothing but Love and Support. Bigup to my Boys Ssebakigye, Prince, Dolibondo and My girl Cotilda. Laftaz Comedy Lounge is the Place to be this Evening....Rahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh"
These words were at first taken in positively as words of encouragement now that Salvador was even drumming up support for the group by saying that Laftaz Comedy group was the place to be that evening but the issue of being called 'boys' has left Prince Emmah and Dolibondo disturbed to which they are terming as a bad statement with no good intention.
Prince Emmah was the first to react: "On a serious note, I think I don't deserve to be called anyone's son in Comedy!! I have no comedy father. A father is someone who gives you life or introduces you to a new life!! I started performing in P.5 at the age of 11....at that time I never knew that I would even meet some people..then later they refer to me as 'my son' in comedy!! My son??!! Hahahahahaaaa....apaana."
Dolibondo rolled his eyes and swung into action too: "We agreed to work together despite the misunderstandings we had and RESPECT is what we needed not DISRESPECT. OTUMANYIDE NYO. I discovered and introduced myself to this industry." Watch this space!
The cracks in the Crackers(Mic Check) Comedy group have emerged leading to the formation of two comedy groups, the All New Krackers and the Laftaz Comedy Lounge.
The Krackers now include the former CEO/Founder Patrick Idringi aka Salvador, Alex Muhangi, Dikanio Omara Daniel and Mc Kapale.
The Laftaz Group comprises of Dolibondo, Prince Emma, Sebakigye, Afande Kelekele and Cotilda Inapo and their first performance was on Jan 29 at Centenary Park featuring Captain Dolla of the Emesse fame.
Trouble started when the Crackers Manager Jonathan Kyeyo bought Laftaz Comedy group and demanded that all the members relocate to Centenary Park. The CEO/Founder was equally not happy with the way the money from sponsors was being shared.
He demanded for an explanation only to be told that most of the money had been used to buy the Laftaz Comedy Group. The disgruntled Crackers members were further told that they only had 10% shares in the Laftaz group. The shows were put on hold under the guise of going for a break at the time when they were expected to be busy.
Just last Monday, Prince Emma who is also the Publicist for the Crackers Comedy group issued a statement on the 'Crackers Split' and part of the statement read: "We could not agree on the mode of operation for this year. When you have 10 talented people with different egos, ambitions and visions, it is not easy to agree on one thing.
This does not mean that the two camps are now enemies...we are friends with just different ways of seeing things. Once in a while you will see the two camps on the same stage.
Thank You and keep supporting comedy in Uganda."
Club Silk PRO Lindah Lisa recently stepped out sporting a bulging baby bump and she is enjoying every moment of it as confirmed from her wall post."D joy, happiness, anxiety plus excitement of my new role blinds mi from all d negative energy, am happy everyday that goes by.."
This will be her first child. The publicist is clearly missing the bikini outfits and her favourite Doctors and Nurses theme night.
Meanwhile, her pals Pherrie Kim of Guvnor and new mum Nickita Bachu of Club Rouge are busy yapping over women who accept to be side dishes and wondering why they can't be proud to say no to the men who hit at them.
Last Friday, Don MC Kapata suffered a sudden blindness in his left eye something that brought has Emesse hunting skills to a stand still. The matter was serious that the Atalina No Mukamwa singer reached out to his fans:
"Guys my left eye went blind since yesterday (Friday), I really need your prayers to recover my sight. On Sunday, friends were busy communicating to each other to include Don MC in their prayers to recover his sight.
Don MC's prayers were heard and by Tuesday, the 'Tobimanyi' singer had started gaining his sight. He confirmed this in his wall post: "My eye is getting better and better ready to beat EMESSE without a NO mukamwa"
Don Mc is the one dread rapper who normally raps at the end of the NTV Minibuzz show depending on the topic of discussion, but just incase you've noticed that he is missing in action, then you should not wonder what was wrong, the situation was critical and it needed addressing.
Singer Bebe Cool and Zuena Kirema are celebrating 11 years together. On January 25, the couple marked eleven years since they got hitched.
Zuena was the first to express her love: "Today me & ma luv make 11yrs since we met & still goin strong, I thank God for where we r now & pray for many more years to come ahead of us. luv u Musa & thx for bein a great dad.."
Bebe Tweeted back: " It's been 11 years of loving u, knowing u, making you smile n cry, kissing u, touching u, making love to u, making babies with u, papers with u, and a life with u that has made a lot of meaning to me.
25 Jan is a special day for us when we met and I pray that Allah keeps u, me and the kids safe and together for the rest of our lives. Zuena thanks for being ma wife and a good mother to my kids. Its' not simple but you have done eleven years and I kindly request u to even get stronger in this home koz of challenges of life. Allah bless u my wife."
Last Saturday, Bebe Cool was Ras B Ssali's best man but as he did the rehearsals, he noted that he will be doing the same with Zuena Kirema any time soon. Bebe and Zue have three kids together, 2 boys(Alpha, Caysan) and one daughter(Beata).
The Goodlyfe Crew of Moze Radio and Weasel will be launching their OBUDDE album in about three months from now but they are certainly not happy after their music was banned from playing on Vision stations that include Bukedde TV, Urban TV and Star Radio among others.
The duo fell out with New Vision prompting them to hit studio and record 'Ba Customer' which turns out to be a direct attack on the Vision boss, Robert Kabushenga.
In their latest wall post, the Goodlyfe Crew duo say: "At first we thought New Vision had a vision but they were all lies. Radio en Weasel's music will never be played on any of those vision less stations...."
Big name artistes like Chameleone have been banned before but were able to apologize and their music was allowed to play on Vision based radio stations and televisions. The Goodlyfe have always used this as a tool to settle their differences at least going by 'Zuena' and 'Chidula' tracks.
In the 'Zuena' track, they were hitting at Bebe Cool and in 'Chidula', they were attacking Charlie Lubega and his night Club, Ange-Noir.
Meanwhile, on the very day they will be launching their album, one upcoming artiste going by the stage name of BigEye will be launching on the same day.
The boyz felt him and could not just let it go and this was their post: "Okay we happen to be launching our album OBUDDE on the 10th of may meanwhile anatha artist by the name big eye has set a launch too on the exact date after us announcing....what do you ve to say.."
South African based Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan has changed tactics and at this rate you are in for more surprises.
It is one thing to read a foreign paper and it is another to appear in a foreign newspaper. This is what Zari made some of her followers believe that she had appeared in the UK Times which was okay, but we were equally curious to know what the UK paper had written about Zari.
On zooming into the text besides the photo with a title: ''Zari the bosslady", the info was totally unrelated as it was about Canadians in a multibillion bid to build up to six nuclear reactors in Britain.
No wonder all those who were asking for a bigger version of the ''newspaper'' so they could read the small prints did not get any answers. Some were even asking which paper it was so they could grab a copy, but the boss lady was tight lipped.
Uganda has appeared in the UK papers in the recent past but it was mainly about the OPM scam that has left the likes of Kazinda interdicted. In the pic, Zari wrote that: "Worldwide super star" Meaning that even the international media had started profiling her.
We carried out an advanced search and retrieved the original article together with the photograph that was replaced and the findings were that, there was nothing ''Zari'' in that paper after all.
Zari is the babe who parked an orange lamborghini at Garden City attracting tourists to take pics next the orange beast which had both of its doors open.
Bebe Cool n His Hummer are back in the news. In 2010, he brought in the used Hummer H2, and to this he said, I can now be called Munene Munene or Big Size.
Just yesterday, the 'Kamwako' singer branched of at a filling station for petrol but the pump attendant accidentally filled the car with diesel. Bebe Cool was lucky that it was diesel being put in a petrol car because it could have been worse had it been the other way round.
The folks at Petro city quickly got this fixed as the damage was not severe and therefore less costly. Had it been diesel in a petrol engine, then this could cause extensive damage to the engine after diesel was sucked into the cylinders.
Bebe reached out to his fans to let them know about his ordeal, "Imagine a pump attendant has put diesel in ma H2 instead of petrol and he says he was excited to see me." This got a good number of fans commenting, most of them saying that he should calm down.
But as always not all of them will ride on the same horse with him and this is what some had to say.
"That's easy and simple...add in petrol and the Hummer will have a buffet this time." Another wrote: "You should sue the petrol station and demand for 800m." It should be noted that earlier on, Bebe Cool had promised to sue Bukedde Newspaper and to this, he fulfilled his promise.
Last Tuesday, through his lawyer, David Sempala, Bebe furnished Vision Group with a letter of intention to sue unless they compensated him with Shs800m for having written that his dreads were cut off which wasn't the case. They are yet to respond to this.
But before Bebe Cool could put the Hummer issue to rest, he thanked the team at Petrol city for having addressed the problem. By then his page was streaming will all sorts of comments from both haters and fans.
Reacting to negative comments on the matter, Bebe Cool said: "Kakati zino embata ezili ku page ya ba fans bange zikolakoki..." Meaning that "What are these ducks doing on my fans page.
Bad Black's co-accused Meddie Ssentongo is back in court again, this time for having an illegal fire arm.
Meddie was sentenced to 18 months last July in the Shs11bn embezzlement case and was left with a few months to be done but new charges of having an illegal pistol have cropped up. Meddie Ssentongo was produced at Buganda Road court this morning.
In December, some folks from South Africa who were here on holiday went to check on him in Luzira and he assured them of how he was coming back to displace all those that thought had money.
Meddie was sentenced to 18 months and he preferred to serve the sentence now that it was a light one compared to his accomplice. Shanita Namuyimba who recorded a track 'Nkyamuka' on being released had just done six months out of the four years. She was released to go for breast implants treatment in Dubai, but she is now at large.
Some sources claim she could be in Malaysia others Hungary. She recently met a very handsome Arab man who wondered which country the black beauty was from but on a second thought, she realised an arrest warrant for her was on, so she relaxed the 'Bad Black' in her and begged to be excused.
"I really like your looks, Bad Black laughs..where are you from? Uganda, where is that? Africa...yeah would u mind If I buy you a cup of coffee.." It was at this point that Bad Black suspected this guy could be working for interpol, she took off running faster than the former world and Commonwealth steeplechase champion Dorcus Inzikuru.
Bobi Wine's house in Magere and inset is his Semakokiro Plaza followed by Chameleone's Sseguku based house while posing right by Daniella Villas and last but not least is Bebe Cool's Kiwatule based mansion that has seen much progress in the last months to the level of roofing.
The music industry in Uganda is so competitive especially when it comes to these three top male artistes but their cribs have always been an interesting topic of discussion for the fans.
Regarding Bobi Wine's Magere based crib, there is nothing much to write home about. Just recently, he moved his Fire Base office and studio to Semakokiro Plaza that has over 10 units boosting his savings as he won't have any office rent to pay.
Chameleone is busy renovating his house though complaining of how cement prices are sky rocketing but fans have advised him to resort to using cow dung or he should very quickly come up with a concert of sorts tagged to house renovation.
Bebe Cool has just roofed his luxurious 6in1 mansion and this very year, he could move in at least going by the progress on the house. The Kamwako singer has committed all resources to the house putting on hold his other activities like donating to charity, painting his current Ntinda house among others.

You must be fluent in English, entertaining and passionate about the Big Brother experience. This time round, the producers are concerned about the tolerance, enthusiasm and determination.
The winner will walk away with USD300,000 (Approximately Shs798,000,000) after 91 days in the Big Brother house with cameras in all corners. The show will be watched in 40 African countries.
Other countries participating in the Big Brother Africa include: Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
In Uganda, the fans are already excited and have started speculating on the names of those they think should represent the country. Some of the names include: Zari, Navio, Golola and Straka combined, Juliana Kanyomozi, Natasha Sinayobye and Bad Black had it not been for the arrest warrant.
Former super model Judith Heard also the host of the Glitz and Glamour theme night at Club Rouge has warned that galz who come dressed in attires that reveal too much flesh change the whole party meaning and could be bounced.
Commenting on the inset photo of the three gals, JH wrote that: "Such people need to be bounced. They change the whole party meaning. I don't like gals who dress like this."
One of the gals in the pic has her butt cheeks interacting with the public freely. During the just concluded Glitz and Glamour night, Judith Heard was in a long red dress but given her height, it almost turned out to be a short one though for her, it was below the knees.
According to the official source, Glitz and Glamour is now a monthly theme night that will be held every second Friday of the month and it will be a sure way of interacting with the coolest and the most fashionable people.
The model who launched her 2AfricanGalz clothing line at BeHuman Art Gallery in Texas-Houston last Saturday is still recovering from the hectic activity and in her words she says; "Still can't get over the night I need more sleep all my body parts hurt."
Last Friday, the Anti-Corruption Court Chief Magistrate Irene Akankwasa found the Soroti member of parliament Captain Mike Mukula guilty of embezzling Shs210m Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) funds meant for the HIV/AIDS victims. He was sentenced to 4 years at Luzira Maximum prison.
Bebe Cool was among those who attended the last court session that saw the Soroti MP sentenced. Before the court session could commence, Bebe Cool was at the Anti-Corruption Court early enough. Bebe hugged Captain Mike Mukula as a sign of rallying behind him.
On passing the verdict, Mike Mukula was found guilty something that led to the collapse of his wife Gladys Mukula at the court premises. Bebe Cool and other sympathizers were touched prompting these words from the 'Kamwako' singer.
"Am so sad coz ma close friend Mike Mukula has been sentenced to four years in Luzira among all the big guyz responsible for that money, only him taken in yet he even refunded the money.
I know it's time for Ugandans to fight corruption but am also now joining the cause coz If Mike Mukula can be taken, then ever politician who has embezzled shud be taken to court and charged."
He signed off by letting Allah be with him as he serves the sentence but also smuggled in this one "I hope murders are also charged."
It's been a rare week in history that saw city tycoon Hassan Basajjabalaba arrested as he tried to live the country, spent two nights in Luzira before being released on a cash bail of Shs60m, Desh Kananura was equally arrested over the death of his employee who was found with Shs10,000/- and now the sending of Mike Mukula to Luzira.
The Soroti MP had hopes of standing in the 2016 presidential elections but this now seems unlikely as he will be done with his sentence in 2017.
Glamour gal Esther Akankwasa has eventually left the Forever Single Club and now engaged to her pensioner Nico Damminger though the love birds remain silent on the wedding date.
The couple invited a few of their friends that included Tonix to an engagement luncheon and later crowned the evening off at Acacia Av.based Protea Hotel. Following our story (Sexy Esther Hooks Mzungu Pensioner), the flopped Big Brother All stars contestant had this to say especially to those who thought she was in it for money:
"Money or not, Good thing is he is not complaining n neither am I so if ur really bothered, live with it or die trying; coz he already put a ring on it. The two love birds have both changed their facebonk relationship status to 'Engaged'
Nico who looked excited about the development promises to give the relationship his best shot. Nico left for Germany after their engagement but Esther is already tweeting him on how much she is missing him but in his Luganda reply, he told her that: 'Onsula Kumutima' meaning that My heart aches for you!
Meanwhile, Nico has been linked to a one Nancy of Nkumba University but in this case she loses out and had better sort herself regarding her 'killing of the rat' or Okukuba Emesse.
The biggest Coca-Cola talent search dubbed ''Rated Next'' kicks off in Arua today before it spreads to eight other districts. The Winner will walk away with an Ipad, Shs50m and a two album recording contract with Fenon Records.
The competition which is open to all unrecorded artistes including those under 18 provided they get consent from their guardians will have the best 30 participants qualify for a two-day resident camp screening at Ndere Centre.
Coca-Cola has teamed up with New Vision that will be broadcasting the show live on its TV network that include Bukedde, Urban TV and TV West. To participate, one is required to buy a coke and a form will be availed. Supermarkets across the country and Coke outlets have these forms.
All participants are required to do original compositions or Ugandan songs. Maurice Kirya, Siima Kyomuhendo and Sharp Sewali will be the judges. In 2004, the Coca Cola popstar search came up with the Blu3(Jackie, Lillian and Cindy) who have since embarked on solo careers.
Meanwhile. Cindy tried holding her first concert mid last year but that was the period when KCCA came up with the ban on late night performances forcing her to postpone. She is now back with Amateeka Concert which will be taking place on 01-Feb-2013.
Ex Cyclone dancer cum model Esther Akankwasa has hooked herself a Mzungu pensioner and the two were all over each other at Club Rouge last Saturday during the Glitz and Glamour party by Judith Heard.
It should be recalled that Esther and Bad Black had a fight over David Greenhalgh at Casablanca bar with Bad Black sending a flying whiskey glass to Esther's face. This was a serious case that resulted in a Shs5m compensation to Esther.
Since then, Esther has not given up on her search for a white dude and just last Saturday, Esther was spotted with a pensioner in a booth at Club Rouge who we have managed to identify as Nico Damminger from Germany. He is one of those who strongly belive that the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice.
It is a perfect match now that Esther wanted to download Greenhalgh from Bad Black but failed. Damminger loves Uganda, Ugandan music and Chameleone's Valu-Valu video in particular does wonders for him and when it comes to female Ugandan artistes, Juliana, Iryn and Desire Luzinda top his list.
When his friends in Germany spotted his pics with Esther at Club Rouge; they were like ''You're a perfect match" though one wondered if at that rate, he could be going back to Germany any time soon.
As for Esther who spent the whole of Saturday evening sexcited, she was like; "Hmmm we portrayed the theme of the night which was Glitz and Glamour."
A 290-page book entitled "One Little Guitar" - The Words of Paul Kafeero" is now on sale at a book store near you featuring the life of the Kadongo-Kamu genre star Prince Job Paul Kafeero who died in 2007 at the age of 38.
Authored by his wife, Dr. Kathryn Barrett-Gaines aka Omwana W' Omuzungu, the book combines memoirs and Paul Kafeero's autobiography with a fascinating account of how the Walumbe Zzaya singer came to play the guitar.
According to Omwana Wo Omuzungu, compiling of the book which consists of 83 songs on 21 albums profiled in Luganda and English, with details of how they were recorded and composed has taken her a bit of time and money.
Over 20,000 USD has been used on the entire project. The writer who happens to teach Ugandan history and Luganda at a University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) in the US doubts if Ugandans will read the book given their poor reading culture.
Kathryn who was talking to one local television does not expect to make so much money out of this but just wanted to keep Kafeero's legacy vibrant and equip something for the fans. The book is going for Shs50,000 and can be found at Fountain Publishers.
In 2008, Dr. Kathryn told New Vision that: "Kafeero was the greatest gift from God to me. There is no way I can describe Kafeero in one interview. You have to read the book I am writing about him when it comes out." So there you go!
Last Sunday was the Dancehall Sting at Lido Beach that was organised by Dancehall Crew King Michael with Bella, Margla, Coco Finger, AK47, Vampino, Yung Mullo and Peter Miles performing.
Chameleone appeared at the venue uninvited and demanded that his young brother AK47(Bullet proof) performs before Coco Finger(One Soldier Man). Coco Finger was trying to do his electrifying dance before Chameleone pushed him off the stage.
Bouncers were quick at quelling the situation. Weasel has now joined Moze Radio and this is what he has to say:
"People ..advice war monger Dr. Jose Chameleone to act his age and low is pagan violent ways, when the media fails to address the truth to public figures and instead hail and praise dem, they will never learn to respect the community that they live in.
Weasel in his wall post concluded that this skeleton is a big threat to peace. I support Moze Radio's campaign against Chameleone's violence. For God and my fight for peace." If this is a trick to make news or they have something that they want the public to know, it's only time to tell.
Miss Uganda 1994 is so heavy and about to download any minute from now.
Linda took to facebook to share her blossoming bare bump that seems to have twins as she sported a flowing maxi white skirt.
These days winners of the crown drive off with a Raum or Spacio Toyota car courtesy of REDDS. But Linda assumed this crown way before glam had come to this town. Miss Uganda 1993-1994 got an airticket to South Africa and a wardrobe as presents for the crown.
She was an air hostess in the mid 1990s with Captain Roy's Alliance Air which is no more but Linda is now settled in Las Vegas and continues to bless her husband Curtis Lahti with babies.
Linda got a shock of her life when Curtis proposed to her at the Arizona Diamond backs baseball game against Washington Nationals in May 2008. The kiss cam was live on a giant screen leaving her with no choice but to just say yesssssssssss. The couple held their multi million wedding on 20 December 2008.
Facebook is a social network that connects people with friends, and others who work, live and study around them. It has now introduced a graph search facility that allows you to search for posts, pictures and music that your friends like.
But behind all that, there is a group of people that need to be recognized on facebook and Zari prefers to call them obsessed fans and confused admirers otherwise haterz. Last Saturday, Ivan was swimming with his three boys in their home based swimming pool. He decided to share the moment with his friends on facebook.
This got comments trickling in instantly with some accusing Ivan of showing off and others saying that was 'Amaalo' aka local swagg. Zari was alerted by her dolls that 'Omwami' bamutta. Zari grabbed her cell and came to Ivan's rescue who was still getting to terms with what he thought were friends only to post hate comments.
On Zari chipping in, she told one obsessed fan who had referred to their house as very lousy that: "Go ahead and also buy a 6 bedroom house with a pool, entertainment area cinema and then you also refer to that as local swagg." This is my family you are talking about ebilala I don't care but my family obolina kyonoonya.
Chameleone's file has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to advise on whether the Moto-Moto star Jose Chameleone should be prosecuted or not based on the evidence so far gathered and the report from Mulago hospital on what caused the death of Robert Karamagi.
On Thursday, Robert Karamagi's dad was at Kibuli police making a statement on the death of his son. Earlier on, Daniella and Chameleone plus other members of Leone Island Music Empire (LIME) made statements that were helping police with the investigations.
Hopefully this will make Moze Radio settle and also realise that the police is doing its job though it cannot work on his orders. On Saturday, the Chameleone's were in a family meeting discussing this case in particular and also appealing to Moze Radio through Weasel TV to be calm.
In case the situation warrants that Chameleone be prosecuted, then the manslaughter charge would be preferred against him now that Karamagi did not die from the singer's home. It would have been murder had he died from Chameleone's home.
Moze Radio promised not to keep quiet until something is done. By Monday afternoon, Moze Radio was still spitting venom with worse off allegations. Chameleone simply brushed it off with this post: "With all these bricks that have been thrown at me these past few days, I will lay a firm foundation."
Last Saturday was the Glitz and Glamour theme night at Club Rouge that ushered Judith Heard back to the social scene after a three months holiday in California.
New kid on the block Yung Mullo and Gospel artiste Exodus were among the artistes that entertained fans who turned up in large numbers. Other artistes who were in the vicinity included Jose Chameleone, though he was around for a short while, GNL, Cindy and members of the Swangz Avenue among others.
The Glitz and Glamour night at Rouge was a red carpet affair with most revellers respecting the dress code that was gold and black. Members of the FabClan that included Sue Ochola and Nusurah Kaseruzi kept by the host of the night JH the whole evening.
Earlier that day, JH had been at two TV stations, NTV and Record Television, but one thing that kept most viewers amused was her height. McKats of NTV Exposed and also the MC at the Glitz and Glamour party had to improvise with a ladder to sort things out.
Meanwhile, the model who keeps her legs toned and sexy promises a hot 2013 and has released her latest shots that have left most guys drooling at the long legs.
The list of socialites engaging in fashion biz is becoming bigger by the day. The latest is Florida based former Miss Uganda 2004, Barbara Kimbugwe who came to Uganda for the holidays.The 2004 pageant winner was spotted at Club Rouge recently showing off some flesh.
The former pageant winner brought in an assortment of items from the US and her grabber statement was: "Come and buy yourself what is new in vogue from USA..You'll never go wrong." She brought in limited stock so purchasing from her was on invite only.
This was shopping for Divas and it was private in nature because you had to be invited to go for shopping for items that included handbags, perfumes, jewels plus sexy outfits. The private shopping for divas was held last Saturday at Muyenga Bukasa, Forest Village.
Former pageant Queens like Salma Nassanga went for the shopping spree. Barbara is still having fun in Kampala. She joins others like Helen Lukoma, Zari and Judith Heard among others dealing in the same stuff.
Mwami-Wanji Mwami-Wanjii Mwami Zukuka Okubbe Emesse Eyo Njisse!! is a line off the new 'Emesse' track by a one 20-year-old Aliyenka Dawson going by the stage name Captain Dolla that has taken Kampala by storm.
Clubs, Radio Stations and TV stations are playing the song. Most guys have now set the song that has got moralists worried as their ring tone. This is Dolla's first track which he didn't expect to become an instant hit. The singer is affiliated to Eye Entertainment.
It took him close to two months to compose and write the song which he derived from the many rats they had while growing up. Dollar says that his song is not vulgar but then again one wonders if the song was about rodents whether it could be getting that much airplay.
On Wednesday night, one TV station played the 'Emesse' song which got all those on telly dancing gangnam style. It took another ten minutes and the song was playing again Mwami, Mwami....Emmese!
Capt. Dolla is now trying to fight the one hit wonder syndrome by releasing another track 'Nyenya' which he did with one of his brothers. This is the same thing Yung Mullo did by releasing 'Love me' at the time when 'Tebakusobola' was still relevant.
Former super model and also the Arab Money boss Judith Heard will be holding her Glitz and Glamour party tonight at Club Rouge.
The Glitz and Glamour night will be a mixture of music and models clad in outfits from JH Flaunt You Style fashion. Artistes like Yung Mullo and Captain Dolla of the Emesse fame will be among the line up of artistes to perform. It will be an open bar from 8pm to 4am and the dress code is gold and black.
In her passion for modeling and design, JH has teamed up with a Nigerian US based Michelle Okusun to start a clothing line in America. In two weeks time, JH says that some of the clothes in the American shop will also be found at the Forest Mall based JHFYS Shop.
Appearing on the NTV Expozed show today, JH revealed to the host of the show Kats MC that she will be on the catwalk only in the US and in Uganda may be when Stella Atal is exhibiting her fashions.
The Karamagi saga makes Chameleone feel like 'Moto Moto', 'Badilisha', 'Shida Za Dunia' and now 'Street Kid' his latest, a collabo with Jamaica's Konshens who also refers to him as Africa's finest.
Moze Radio was Jose Chameleone's back up vocalist back then but part ways in the year 2008. Moze together with Chameleone's brother Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel TV formed the Goodlyfe Crew. 'Magnetic' and 'Fantastic' are their latest songs.
A few days back, Moze Radio decided to unearth some info here which he thought would be relevant to police but instead, Chameleone's fans who are the majority anyway told him off with some asking him to give up music and join police instead.
In his latest message to police, he says: "Chameleone is wanted for murder n yet I still c him in public!!! I have voiced my anguish n all I get r insults from his sympathisers. Am deeply disturbed by da Uganda Police for their silence. am not going to stop my campaign against violence."
Chameleone's fans are stuck to one thing, prayer and have supported him all the way as he confirmed in his tweet. "I'm humbled by this moral support. We shall overcome. The devil is a liar."
Matters were even made worse for Moze when he called one of the top officers' cell phone at Kajansi Police and the caller tune was a Chameleone's Valu Valu song. Police responded to him that his file had been forwarded to the DPP nd were waiting for a response.
Moze Radio's partner, Weasel is silent over the matter. He will instead be joining other family members today in a meeting which will be attended by Jose Chameleone to discuss a way forward.
Thunder thigh dancer Mampi Mukape of the Swililili fame will be performing in Uganda on Valentine's day. The Zambian artiste who is nominated in four categories in the Zambian Awards will be coming to Uganda for the second time. The first time was when she was in the country when Uganda Cranes were playing against the Chipolopolo team from Zambia.
The 'Walilowelela' singer will be performing at Hotel Africana on February 14, 2013 along side local artistes like Iryn Namubiru, Bobi Wine, Aziz Azion and Yung Mullo among others. On Feb.17, 2013 the singer brought in by KT Promotions will then perform at Entebbe Resort Beach.
Ragga Dee is not on the local line of artistes to curtain raise for the Zambian singer after coming up with a song dubbed 'Sweet Tee Tee' may be to make it easier for those who thought that the song was done by a Ugandan.
In the song Ragga Dee sings in Luganda that: ''Swetietietie Wakula figure kwogatta no Omubiri...Swetietietie Walungiwa Amagulu No Omubiri sounding exactly like Mampi's original version.
Most top artistes from Jamaica like Beenie Man, Sean Kingston, Mr. Vegas, and Elephant Man among others have already performed and it won't be surprising that artistes like Mampi from Zambia will be here.
There's always some madness in love. But there is also some reason in madness as the saying goes. Bad Black and David Greenhalgh are dating at least going by the information off Bad Black's wall.
Bad Black confirmed this in her message to women who end up stealing other women's husbands with hopes of having them but in the end, the men go back to their wives. She gave an example of her and Greenhalgh.
In her message to what looked like a direct attack to her rival, Bad Black said that in the end you do not even get a simple car, "..Kyoka Omusajja naddayo owamukazi we nga nze ne Greenhalgh." meaning that the man goes back to his wife just like me and Greenhalgh.
This does not surprise at all because in the first weeks of the embezzlement case, Bad Black was brought to court and the two had a moment together in which they even kissed. This left many perplexed and wondering why the man had even got her arrested in the first place.
Bad Black was recently released to go and fix her breast implants after paying shs100m and was expected to come back and serve her sentence but having gone out of prison, its not clear if she will be back anytime soon.
Meanwhile, one Rachael who was the most trusted person in her home surprised many when she showed up for the white party looking glam. Rachael was the one taking care of the kids while Bad Black was in prison.
The Mavado and Chris Martin show has now been confirmed on Easter day according to information from Uganda Breweries Ltd. The show was supposed to take place on Dec 29 but according to a tweet from Mavado, he seemed to be complaining of airtickets and the Uganda show clashing with the one in Nigeria.
This was Mavado's tweet: "Unfortunately the show was tagged with a show in Nigeria and they let us down financially and with plane tickets. They are out of the picture now." Looks like Uganda is now back in ''Mavado's picture''
Uganda Breweries Marketing Director Grace Gwaku confirmed that the action packed show will be held on the Easter weekend and those who purchased tickets plus those with complimentary tickets were advised to present them on that day.
UBL while apologizing to the fans said that the duo will be performing in Uganda for the first time and also added that Konshens is out of the picture. Looking at what has happened in the past two weeks, some fans were like but won't the same happen around Easter time prompting this reaction from Bell Lager.
"We understand your anger and disappointment but we do promise that we shall have a grand show come the Easter weekend."
An international warrant of arrest has been issued for Bad Black through Uganda Police and Interpol for failing to meet bail conditions. Bad Black was released on a shs100m bail to go for breast treatment in Dubai but has since not returned. Bad Black is now required to go back to prison and serve her full four year jail term.
Singer Halima Namakula was one of her sureties but when court analyzed the bail documents, Bad Black had replaced singer Halima Namakula with her dad Nassir Jombwe and yet he was not recognised as one of the sureties.
Bad Black was also supposed to report to court every two weeks something that she did not do. Last Friday, Bad Black was expected in court but she was nowhere to be seen leaving court with no choice but to issue a warrant of arrest now that she is not even in the country.
Interestingly, the court of appeal registrar Mr. Erias Kisawuzi was referring to her as Bad Black as opposed to her real name Shanita Namuyimbwa. Bad Black who seemed not bothered about this wrote on her wall that:
"MMMMM UR Joking!!! Ok look for me??Where Malaysia, Dubai, China, America am in hospital (Dubai Breast Surgery Hospital)...But Uganda, I'm very sick and you are looking for me...try Masaka"
Bad Black had a very tight schedule before she went for treatment. She went for training to be ordained as a pastor, hit studio to release her 'Nkyamuka' song and also had a little bit of exchange with footballer Eugene Sepuya and the Portland National over her kids Davina and Jonah.
More on Bad Black Here
Socialite Zari is just not about to run out of ideas. Last Month, she hit a bridal shop in South Africa to shop for a wedding gown which left many excited but as it turned out, she used the dress during her White Party that was held at Guvnor on December 27, 2012.
Zari simply detached the 2in1 wedding dress and hit the club. Again its not clear what was going on here but chances are their wedding was called off following the rocks that hit their affair to the extent of coming out and saying that she was not getting married and not in luv with anyone. Using a wedding gown at an All White Party simply leaves a lot ot be desired.
The year 2013 is different for the couple as they have taken their Public Display of Affection to another level. During the boat cruise, Zari almost 'mounted' Ivan on the boat as they celebrated their rekindled love.
Ivan Ssemwanga and Zari's wedding date might not be so much of an issue like bringing the Lamborghini to Kampala was but one thing is for sure, they've learnt that in love you do not only gaze at each other but you also look in the same direction together.
Its a new year and for Bobi Wine this means that certain things have to change too. In the month of January 2013, he won't be paying rent for his office space as he has already moved his Fire Records studio and offices to Kamwokya, Semakokiro Plaza and that is where he can be found on a good day.
His wife Barbie was quick at congratulating him for having stopped paying rent for office space. "Kulika Obupangisa Ssebo", Barbie tweeted. Last year Bobi said: "This will be my business empire with Fire Base Offices, studio, bar, hospital and a shop with Fire Base Crew Designs."
This means that he is yet to open up a bar and a shop that we have not yet established what will be on sale their but that seems like the way he has kicked off with the year 2013. On his office desk were two small flags, one for Buganda Kingdom and the Ugandan flag.
Ssemakokiro Plaza was named after Buganda Kingdom's youngest son. Meanwhile, Dubai fans missed Jose Chameleone as he had to attend to the disturbing case of the intruder who broke into his house, but not all is lost as Bobi Wine will be performing in Dubai on February 2, 2013.
As you may all be aware that the intruder who broke into Chameleone's house passed on after succumbing to serious injuries he sustained from the singer's house in Sseguku and since then, the police has been handling the matter and are yet to forward the file to the Director of Public Prosection (DPP) for advise.
Fellow artistes have been talking but not wanting to be quoted but one of them who happens to be Moze Radio who was once his back up vocalist back in the days has come out and he is on record and this is what he had to say:
"Chameleone, Chameleone, Chameleone...u almost killed my brother...u beat up Weasel in Rouge...u kidnapped a man from Masaka..n now you are telling the whole world mbu yo wife scared a thief so much dat he set himself on fire!!!! Joseph Joseph..I hope u still remember wat I told u...stop living dangerously...obudde bugendelera... meaning that time is rushing, its high time you acted your age"
This message has got the likes of Kasuku who recently got a beating from Chameleone's wife excited to the extent that he might even forget about his particular case and just monitor this one.
Meanwhile, Chameleone who recently cancelled his tour to Dubai has resorted to local shows but even for the local shows you must have paid up in full for him to perform.
In the last days of the previous year, he was selling like a hot cake but revellers at Calendar Restaurant in Makindye had it rough when the singer showed up but did not perform due to some unpaid balance, the organiser ordered for the gates to be locked so the star could not get out but being the Chameleone he is, he left his Toyota Regius car behind and jumped over the wall to his next destination.
Bib is Big no doubt but the gate and the wall at the Big Size current residence says otherwise. It's also a known fact that Bebe Cool is channeling all resources to his mansion in Kiwatule but a tin or two of Sadoline paint would do no harm.
Zuena shared a pic off her wall saying that: "The boys decided to play soccer without shoes." But in the pic, the background was not a good sight as it revealed that the gate and wall required a paint job.
The galz, Zuena and Beata were busy cooking as the boys played ball. The boys definitely have shoes but they felt like playing without shoes but for the paint job, this must be one of the top priorities for the Gagamel chief to address.
The 12th version of the Kora Awards were held in Abidjan, Ivory Coast on Dec 30, 2012.
Nigeria's P-Square, US rapper Chris Brown and his girl friend Rihanna attended though according to media reports, the event that was slated to take place on December 29 was postponed to the next day after Chris Brown missed his flight.
The awards dubbed 'African Grammy Awards' saw Uganda's Juliana Kanyomozi winning in the category of 'Best Female Artist from Eastern Africa'. Juliana beat the likes of Marya from Kenya, Helen Berhe and Asther Aweke from Ethiopia, Saida Karoli of the Wachekekya fame and Ikraan Caraale from Somalia.
The award of Best Male Artist from Eastern Africa went to Jean Pierre Nimbona aka Kidum from Burundi with his song 'Mulika Mwizi' featuring Sana.
Juliana expressed her gratitude and thanks through her wall: "Sometimes I run out of words to express my happiness and gratitude. I won the Kora for the best Female Artist East Africa. Thank you Kora for the recognition. Thank you all my loving fans from the bottom of my heart for always lifting me up. My heavenly father, you have blessed me beyond, how can I ever pay you back? You are indeed faithful."
'I am Ugandan' is the song that led Juliana to win the Kora award and she did not leave out the team she worked with on the I am Ugandan project that included the Tusker Project Fame 2 winner, Esther Nabaasa, Steve Jean, Kaweesa, Michael Fingers and Onoh.
Konshens to thrill Kampala at a date to be communicated following the refusal of Mavado and Chris Martin. Konshens shall come along with Chris Martin.
The Nigerian Promoter Chinedu is the one bringing Konshens back for the holiday makers to see him following his concert that found them at school. USDollars 40,000 was given to Mavado and rumor has it that Mavado's promoter is ready to cough back that money which was given to them.
Other sources reveal that Mavado refused to come to uganda because he wasn't given all his money hence refusing to board the plane. Others say that the promoter refused paying for his girlfriend's flight yet he wanted to come with her for the Uganda show. Watch this space!
Former Booby Bad Black has joined the camp of small is better after her breast implants were removed. We are yet to establish if she went for the smaller implants or decided to remove them totally.
Bad Black was sentenced to 4 years in jail last year but was recently released on bond to go for an operation in Dubai. Shanita Namuyimbwa aka Bad Black is supposed to report to court every after two weeks as part of her bail condition.
You could feel her pain in her message: "Dubai treatment kyoka tomorrow court banange nze when they dismiss ma bail I don't think....Someone can tell what is next!!! am f###in tired of prison."
In her message she seems to be worried of appearing in court tomorrow and yet she is still recuperating from the implants removal.
The 'Nkyamuka' singer now joins the long list of those who have had their breast implants removed like Sharon Osbourne and Victoria Beckham among others.
The Moto-Moto star Jose Chameleone is being investigated by police over Robert Karamagi's death. This followed rumours that Chameleone was held while trying to leave the country.
In a statement from police this evening, It was established that Chameleone together with his bouncers are being investigated but he has not been arrested yet.
"It's true we are investigating Chameleon and his group for the death of one Karamagi at the top singer's house. We have gathered evidence that we are to take to DPP for perusal and legal advice. However, we have not yet arrested him as per now."
Meanwhile, Chameleone's gig in Dubai that was to take place this Saturday has been called off.
Socialite Zari and former super model Judith Heard were once enemies but looks like part of their new year's resolution was to make up and looking at how events have been unfolding since the past one week, the former enemies are now best of friends.
Judith Heard has been in the US but she made sure the new year finds her in Uganda. Just a few weeks back we revealed how the two still had issues following remarks that were made by JH over Zari's posing right on top of the orange Lambo before it was shipped to Uganda.
The last Saturday of the year, the two, Zari and JH met at the Guvnor dance floor with Zari as the best dancer that night now that she had parked a lamborghini which was perceived as a stunt before it was shipped into the country.
As the two were busy enjoying the video mixing and shaking what their mama's gave them, Zari who was already high fell hard on the dance floor, but before she could get down, she tried to get some support from JH who unfortunately could not handle Zari's weight, thus ending down.
Zari later in her tweet attributed the fall to the dance moves they pulled. "Judithheard those dance moves we pulled at Guvnor led to a hard fall damn ma sexy behind is in pain. I landed on it hope your ok gal."
Judith Heard simply asked the team at Guvnor to do something about the slippery floor and she was worried that at the rate, they won't have any bones left.
Robert Karamagi, the man who broke into Chameleone's house on boxing day before setting himself ablaze was buried on Sunday in Fort Portal. Chameleone has been tight lipped since then and not revealing so much especially to the fans but the Moto-Moto star agrees it is a trying moment for him.
The star started off by wishing his fans and the Leone Island fans a happy new year and went straight to the point. "With all due respect, I have not been quiet about all that is revolving around me for any selfish reasons, It is a trying moment."
Karamagi died from Mulago hospital after sustaining 80% burns to which the Mulago PRO said it was unlikely he could survive and indeed the man later passed on. Relatives to Robert say he had been running errands for Chameleone and he was known to them.
Chamelone on the other hand says: "This man intruded into my house and acted in a self-destructive manner that I can't explain what he had in mind except narrating what I witnessed." Chameleone in his statement off his wall added that:
I contacted police as a responsible citizen after the man threatened my family. Police responded a few minutes after he had set himself ablaze but even when police came, the man was still violent.
Police managed to take him to Kajjansi police and later to Mulago hospital. Karamagi's family members joined him in Mulago hours later and that is when he told them that I was his friend and responsible for his fate.
At the end of it all, Chameleone concluded: "I am born, raised, and will forever be Ugandan,
and I am not above the law! I am encountering a lot of judgement from selfish minds upon this incident but only GOD can judge me."
He then called on to his Leone Islanders to go for work in a Tugende Tukole tone. His wife Daniella Atim together with Chameleone himself have already recorded statements regarding the matter and also detectives were able to look around for all possible clues that could help them in establishing what went wrong and why.

It's a few hours to end the year 2012. The year began well and ended with the loss of Artiste Sera and the Butaleja MP Cerinah Nebanda among the horrible tragedies. Socialite Bad Black was released on bond to go for her breast implants, Zari was among those who completed 2012 with a big smile after cruising a Lamborghini Mercy on Kampala roads.
Below we bring you other top stories of the year that was:
4. Bobi Wine Bounced at Kololo Independence Grounds - The Ghetto president wanted to rub shoulders with the other Presidents that were in the country during the independence celebrations, but he was arrested as he made his way to the pavilion.
9. Zsamboki Mate Thumps Golola - During the training, Golola used to say that he was not a joking subject and that he had a PHD in pain but all that failed to work thus blaming it on his 'discolocated' leg. He was advised to try comedy.
10. Zari's Hubby Semwanga Buys a Second Lamborghini - Ivan Ssemwanga bought an orange Lamborghini but some sections of the public were of the view that this was the white Lambo and not until the two rides are parked together that they will be convinced.
American television personality and recording artist Nicole Scherzinger did a stunning photo shoot with a Lamborghini Diablo last year. Just a few days back, Kenya's busiest Jomo Kenyata International Airport (JKIA) was clearing Ivan Ssemwanga's Lamborghini.
As expected Zari was quick at doing what she does best of course with both the vertical doors wide open. Nicole Scherzinger was captured doing the same thing but she did not seem bothered by the doors.
Kenya's rapper also former Big Brother All Stars representative recently relocated to Nigeria and bought an apartment to join his lover Goldie Harvey. Prezzo was seen posing next to a Lambo with both doors open while in Nigeria.
His Gal friend, Goldie equally left the Lambo doors open and we are now wondering if posing next to a Lambo without opening the doors makes it less of a Lamborghini. Goldie and Prezzo took their pics using the same Lambo that was allegedly used in a video shoot.
Updated: -The Bell Nation featuring Mavado and Chris Martin Live that was slated to take place tomorrow (Dec 29) at the Lugogo Cricket Oval hangs in balance if Mavado's tweet is anything to go by.
David Constantine Brooks aka Mavado the Jamaican singer twitted that: "Ugandan fans the show has been postponed but doan worry retaliation ina hurry. New date TBA shortly. Unfortunately the show was tagged with a show in Nigeria an they let us down financially an with plane tickets. they are out the picture now.
This was neither the fault of the promoter, myself or my team or the sponsor, but a third party. We are fixing it and we shall be there soon."
This show was being promoted by Cee Cee Entertainment who brought in Sisqo before Bell Lager took over.
Bell Lager is yet to communicate on this rather disturbing development though some sources say, the show will now take place on Jan 12. Mavado who was supposed to be in Uganda by Friday (Dec28) is busy planning on a performance in Nigeria tomorrow.
This is the second show to be postponed in less than two months. In November, Chris Brown's Kampala show was postponed. Ugandans are getting used to last minute disappointments. Two years back, Elephant Man also a Jamaican artiste came to Uganda and just wined and dined with Kampala babes but did not show up at Lugogo and actually left the country without performing.
It's now unfortunate for some fans that missed the P-Square show hoping to grace the Mavado and Chris Martin show. It's three days to end the year and the first ever boat cruise seems to be one of the year end activities.
Latest information from Bell Lager: - "We regret to announce that the Mavado show has been postponed to 12th Jan. Tickets are still valid."
Relatives of the now dead Chameleone attacker are accusing the Moto-Moto singer for having torched the man who succumbed to burn injuries sustained on boxing day at the singer's house in Sseguku.
Robert Kalamagi, a resident of Sseguku was a clothes vendor, a fan and good friend to Chameleone according to family members. Kalamagi's father told journalists at Mulago hospital that when he asked his son why he had set himself ablaze, he denied having done that.
According to Kajjansi DPC, Chameleone will have to explain to them that bit. Chameleone is currently in Juba for a show slated for (Dec 28) though before leaving for Juba, he did not want to comment so much on the matter saying that the police was in charge.
Robert Kalamagi (27) the man who broke into singer Jose Chameleone's house has died from Mulago hospital where he was taken for treatment for the severe wounds he sustained in the botched attack.
Kalamagi broke into Chameleone's house at 1:00am, the time Daniella was making her way to the pantry only to hear footsteps in the sitting room. On going there, she met a man who just stood there saying nothing.
Daniella Called Chamelone to come to her rescue as she demanded for answers from the man who by now had started walking towards one of the corners where he had kept a five-litre jerrycan of petrol.
The man then doused himself with petrol and then also tried to douse Daniella too. He then pulled out his lighter and set himself alight. Kalamagi started screaming for help. Police was called in just in time before he could burn to death.
A rash of home break-ins during the x-mas season did not leave out the Badilisha singer Jose Chameleone. In the morning hours of boxing day, a man who was armed with petrol broke into Chameleone's Sseguku house.
They found him in the sitting room after picking some of the christmas presents. The most disturbing, most despicable act the thief did was to set himself on fire. It's not clear if he had wanted to torch Chameleone's property.
Kajjansi police responded in time and arrested the thief before he could burn to death. Some of the neighbours at the scene said that the man had come to burn Daniella Atim, Jose Chameleone's wife.
It's been a traumatizing boxing day for the Mayanja's because had that fire spread to other parts of the house, it could have been a bad year end for the music heavy weight.
Organisers of the recently concluded Chop Ma Money Concert are nursing losses after proceeds from ticket sales went missing. Over Shs450m that was collected from various points that included Lugogo Forest Mall, Nakumatt Supermarket, Capital Shoppers among others was reported at Jinja Road police as missing.
The money that was collected at the gates was stolen too leading to the collapse of one Yvone a director of Silverback Investments who was rushed to Case Hospital under critical condition.
Yvone had done most of the funding for the show and on learning that the money had been stolen, she just fainted", our source added. As Yvone was being rushed to hospital, the rest of the Silverback Investments directors rushed to Jinja road police to file a case of theft.
A week back, the Nigerian RnB duo were in Rwanda at Amahoro stadium with a seating capacity of 52,000 filled to capacity and a number of fans standing. That was an invasion on Rwanda but looks like the Ugandan Invasion did not work out as the Rwanda concert.
The P-Square concert had about 10,000 fans beating the likes of SisQo and Wayne Wonder that flopped terribly. The low turn up was largely attributed to the various end of year parties, plus the heavy christmas traffic that dominated the entire day spreading into the night.
Local artistes like Yung Mullo, Cindy, AK47 and Jose Chameleone among others curtain raised for the Nigerian duo, Peter and Paul Okoye. Vybes production provided the equipment and the stage was average though the lighting was spot on.
The P-Square duo thrilled revellers with top hits like 'Beautiful Onyinye' with Rick Ross missing in action via the rap bit. 'Alingo', Do Me I Do U among others left gals screaming wild. Moze Radio and Weasel joined the P-Square to do 'Nakudata', Goodlyfe's first song.
It was fun in the general happiness area as revellers there were free to jump about as opposed to their VVIP's who were to remain calm on their seats. The P-Square guys were asked which Ugandan artistes they could do collabos with and their response was: Navio, Chameleone, Goodlyfe and Blu3.
It was a celebrity smooch moment when Maurice Kirya met former HB Toxic singer Brenda of B'ambi Fashions at Club Silk during the 18th Anniversary celebrations. Brenda and Maurice who looked like they needed a room left many shocked.
The Omusubawa singer planted a romantic kiss on Brenda's neck and was determined to go all the way down before close pals asked if this was part of his 'The Book of Kirya' series.
Brenda who loved the memorable kiss wrote this on her wall: ''Nice day it was." Brenda's facial expression just confirmed how nice her day was with her blonde hair dropped at the back, eyes closed as she held her breath while the 'King of Omwoyo' did his thing.
Meanwhile, Maurice Kirya has joined the popular local drama series, 'The Hostel' and in the play he acts as Luke Okwalinga and his first appearance was on December 17, 2012.
The P-Square twins, Peter and Paul Okoye are already in town ahead of the 'Chop Ma Money' Concert that will be held at the Lugogo Cricket Oval on Friday (Dec 21). The Alingo stars held a press conference at Serena Hotel on Thursday afternoon.
The Nigerian RnB stars will be at Cayenne Lounge in Bukoto this evening in a meet and greet party chilling out with beautiful onyinye's and signing autographs. President Kagame was among the 75,000 fans that attended their Rwanda show.
The duo who were in the company of Jude Okoye their elder brother who also doubles as their producer promised to give Ugandan fans the very best from P-Square. The duo did not use a private jet to Uganda like they did in Rwanda.
Tickets are going for 25k ordinary and 75k VIP. Details on booking tables and VVIP tickets can be got from the meet and greet party at Cayenne.
In March this year Bebe Cool's Crib was Lagging Behind compared to Bobi Wine and Jose Chameleone but looking at the progress being made on the 6in1 Kiwatule house, the Ndisa Butti singer is heading in the right direction.
The Gagamel boss maintains that the house could have been done ages back but because of the various charity projects that he has been involved with plus the shooting of his leg at Effendys pub in 2010 have affected the completion time.
In one of his interviews, BEBE revealed how he gave Shs 102million to Namusisi who later succumbed to cancer. "I could have used that money to complete my house but I thought that little girl's life was more important."
It has been a busy year for Bebe Cool and as ite ends, a number of projects have been registered including apartments for Zuena which she can use to supplement her income and plus a confectionary which will have a boutique and spa running on the side.
Just recently, he unveiled The Bebe Cool Wine before going to Australia for various shows. Bebe Cool's Christmas program runs as follows: Fans in Tororo will have a chance to see him perform his latest X-mas carol live followed by Iganga on Dec 22 and Mubende on Christmas day.
Its now official socialite Zari and Hubby are back together as a couple. The two were last seen at Guvnor during the 2nd Anniversary celebrations last Friday and just yesterday, they were at Kim Swagga's convicted 2 Fashion party at Ange-Noir..
These two lovers share a number of things together including secret passwords to their social networks which explains how Zari came to land on nude pics sent to Ivan during the time they had separated.
Not shocking at all bearing in mind that Ivan had hooked a gal for himself and Zari had equally moved on. However, other galz who wanted a piece of Ivan and have admired Zari's lifestyle were quick to send their CV's for Ivan to browse through.
As Zari was making her routine check on Ivo's account like she normally does; she landed on saucy pictures of hot curvy babes who had sent through their CV's to her tycoon hubby Ivan Ssemwanga.
Now that Zari had got ID's for the gals who were like six in total, she invited them for an online chat over the matter. Zari who saw no point of sharing the nude pics to her followers told off one of them to at least put on a bra because her boobs were not the type to be paraded just like that.
The exchange was so bitter that we cannot reproduce the messages here. It's funny how what is private finds its way to the public.
Forget the lamborghin's for a short while. A group of orphans in Kalerwe received early christmas when Zari paid them a visit with lots of christmas goodies. Zari who went with her three kids took rice, matooke(bananas), footballs and several bags of posho among others that put a smile on the God's Will Orphans located in Kalerwe.
"God is great, spent my day at God's Grace Orphanage in Kalerwe and had so much fun. I'm happy to have made their X-mas season different." Zari tweeted. Last year Zari Donated Items Worth Shs 4Million to an Orthodox church in Kanyanya.
As part of her charity activities, Zari has visited the women in Luzira prison and donated sanitary towels, toilet papers and diapers to their babies. Zari moves with her kids to ensure that they pick a thing or two from her benevolence acts.
With a month left for Endemol and Africa Magic to call for entries to the Big Brother Africa 2013 version which will be part of the celebrations to mark 10 years since the reality show pioneered in Africa, we asked our facebook followers who their best Ugandan Big Brother star was and Gaetano was all you could see.
Gaetano was the first Ugandan star to grace the reality telly representing the country and since then, it has not been easy to match his game much as others like Ernest Wasake tried to rock the sheets his style but the female fans seem to have a thing for Gaetano Kaggwa.
One wrote: "Gaetano was the only Big Brother star unless when a Ugandan beats him by bringing the money home, short of that he remains the best.
Other Ugandan representatives include Maureen Namatovu, Hannington Kuteesa, Philbert Okure, Sharon O, Morris Mugisha, Kyle and Jannette Lutaaya. According to Endemol MD Sivan Pillay, he says that a new concept has been developed for the upcoming show.
Minutes after launching his latest track dubbed 'Wrap Up 2012' with a line on the passing on of the Butaleja woman MP Cerinah Nebanda, Moses Nsubuga whose stage name is Viboyo Oweyo signed to the Swangz Avenue studio is already paying the price for having included some people in his track.
Viboyo has indeed wrapped the year 2012 highlighting a number of issues ranging from the fighter jets, the Mercedes Benz that the President used during the celebrations to mark 50 years of Uganda's independence, Mama Fiina's nude photos, the Kazinda Saga and Chris Mubiru among others.
At some point, Viboyo lists a number of artistes that included Bella, Henry Tigan and the Goodlyfe among others and he seems to ask, Baliwa? Implying that where they as they are not felt on the music scene. In the song, he concludes by saying that let's take stock of 2012 as we prepare for 2013.
Moze Radio got wind of this and instead shot back with a pink double storied house saying that: "Viboyo this is what I have done in 2012. What have you done since 1992? I was in primary 2 (P.2) that time.."
One of the responses was: That's not the way to go encourage your friend to make it. Even if you are better know that its through their hustle that you made it. You have done collabos with the homey, how do you wake up and post such..."
Following a hectic week that left his Hummer car window smashed in Nakulabye, Bebe Cool decided to go to Australia for various shows.
The Ndisa Butti star who had just done 22hrs of flying from Uganda to Australia still had more flying to do for his other shows in the South city of Australia, Adelaide followed by the Melbourne show and wind up with Brisbane, the most populous city in the state of Queensland.
Bebe Cool generally enjoyed the hospitality that was accorded to him by the Africans in Australia and in particular those from South Sudan. In a message off his wall, Bebe Wrote:
"I have seen love from all countries everywhere I go to sing, love from Ugandans, Kenyans, Rwandese, Congolese and many more who stay abroad but I had never tested the real love from South Sudanese."
His tour was still amazing at this point but the worst moment was when he could not complete making his order as the air hostess took off to go and fasten her seat belt after the flight became bumpy due to heavy storms.
On landing, Bebe Cool was being chauffered in a convoy of posh rides that attracted cops to stop them leading to a bit of an exchange that lasted for some minutes before being set free.
While in his hotel room, Bebe Cool who was in a bad mood after exchanging with a number of fans on his recent actions dashed to his wall and this is what he wrote: "I've not eaten anything for a whole day, in a bad mood, alone in the room, and yet got two hours to do the next gig, would I be wrong to get a bottle of Tequila Gold and mash it all."
Now it's not clear if he actually got to take the Tequila straight without lime and salt but what is clear is that his promoter was threatening to pay him less than he had bargained for at least as summarised from his post.
"What would you do as an artiste when a promoter does not want to pay you as per the contract. Abayimbi tulabye nyo." The 'Big Size' star later removed the above post from his wall may be as a sign that all was well.
City socialite Tracy Bora was in the wee hours of Sunday morning involved in a car accident along Entebbe road.
According to an eye witness, "Friends were seen rushing to the scene of the accident located at Shell gas station on Entebbe-Kampala road." Tracy Bora is currently undergoing treatment in Entebbe for the wounds sustained."
Prince Karim who was clad in jeans and a black t-shirt was spotted at CPS Entebbe on Sunday morning trying to sort out issues.
Early in the day, Tracy Bora's boy friend Prince Karim tweeted that: "Shocked and angry over recent turn of events happening right now in my life. I ask you dear Lord to provide me guidance and wisdom."
South African based socialite Zari Hassan and her on and off Hubby Ivan Ssemwanga are in town. The couple was last seen at Guvnor locking hands during the second anniversary celebrations.
It's eleven days to Zari's All White Party and fourteen days to Ivan's First Ever Boat Cruise that will see free food and booze flowing all day and night. The dress code for the white party is strictly white and for the boat cruise bikini will do.
The charge for the All White Party is 30k for all. Regarding the boat-cruise, the 200 women won't part with any penny but the men will have to pay 100,000. This will entitle them to the full view of the Jamaican booty shakers on board. The number of the gals required on the boat has since been increased to 200 due to public demand.
While in Kampala, the couple will also clear their orange lambo that is being shipped in by air from South Africa to Uganda. However, from what we've gathered, the Lamborghini might end up doing more of a car photo shoot than being driven around.
Ivan was a few days driving a Hummer to his upcountry home, but at some point, he parked it saying that the road was so bumpy. Now what will happen to the Lamborghini whose ground clearance is 5cm.
Multi-award winning Nigerian Duo P-Square are performing in Rwanda-Amahoro Stadium tonight with Uganda's Jose Chameleone. Paul and Peter Okoye used their private jet to fly to Rwanda as our very own Chameleone traveled by Rwanda Air.
The Alingo stars will be performing live in Uganda on December 21, 2012 at the Lugogo Cricket Oval. Tickets will be going for 25k Regular and 75k VIP.
P-Square, President Paul Kagame and Uganda's youngest legislator Proscovia Oromait were named among the Eight most fascinating Africans for the year 2012 by an American Magazine, the Newyorker.
Bad Black has had a rather hectic week but later today, she will be travelling to Dubai for her breast implants removal. Most women with breast implants remove them after they have become saggy, old or too big.
In the case of Bad Black, the breasts were threatening to leak to her stomach wall opting to having them removed. It's not clear if Bad Black will go for small size implants or doing away with them totally making her breasts even look more saggy.
As Bad Black goes for treatment, one thing is on her mind and that is her children. "Im going for treatment today. Gonna miss my children." Police was yesterday called in to intervene as Bad Black and her first Portuguese lover were fighting over who was to have custody of their 3-year-old son, Jonah.
Meanwhile, some old guards in the music industry are not happy about the fact that Bad Black's song 'Nkyamuka' that was uploaded on YouTube 3 days back has over 6,000 views a mark that some videos uploaded way back in 2008 on Yotube have failed to reach.
It is a very tight schedule for Bad Black. After recording her first song, having to attend lessons to perfect her role as Pastor Good Black, dealing with the fact that Eugene Sepuya does not want a thing to do with Davina, Bad Black was on Thursday afternoon at Kiira Road busy fighting for the custody of her son Jonah.
Less than 48 hours back, Bad Black was so disturbed by the fact that Eugene Ssepuya denied having fathered baby Davinah and now the latest is that, the Mzungu(Jonah's Dad) who paid the Shs100m that enabled Bad Black to get bond from jail wants to be in custody of the child.
Bad Black confirmed this on her wall: "Banange @Kira police..fighting for Jonah's love; I think all whites are completely mad!!He wants to take ma son of 3years only..Kale Okuffa Naye Simumuwa." Meaning that I would rather die than giving up on Jonah.
Looking at what Bad Black has gone through, the Dad feels the child is better off staying with him as opposed to the mom who in his view thinks she has a lot on her plate. Bad Black was released a few days back on bond to go for a breast operation in Dubai. She is supposed to report every two weeks to court.
In Uganda, a child aged between 0 to 7 years is normally best looked after by the mother of course assuming factors are constant. Money plays a big role in determining who can take good care of a child bearing in mind that best education, health and food can all be got with money
Bad Black has resorted to music to try and raise money for her breast implants removal but before getting lined up for any gigs, she is bound to appear before a family and children's court to have this settled.
Last Week, Bad Black revealed the true identity of her baby's father who happened to be a Uganda Cranes striker Eugene Sepuya. When the news of fathering Bad Black's daughter, Davinah got to Eugene, he followed it with this post on his wall:
"Nziggyaako ebizibu byo. Ebyange n'ebitali byange mbyawula. Sisobola kugwa mw'ekyo kidiba........ heheheeheh," translated as: Count me out of your problems, I can tell what belongs to me and what doesn't, I can't swim in that pool...hehehehe"
if you need Charity fund rising just ask..................."
This is what made Pastor Good Black cum artiste go Amok and retaliated with the following post:
"Haaa haaaa Sepuya Davina's Dad, U're so hopeless. Sebo I have problems to manage not like you who depends on white........Me and you who needs charity! I respect you dad Davina only because u're the father to ma child.
I'm not stupid Eugene. Tell my rival the truth and stop pretending. I'm ready for DNA hahahaha"
Bad Black concluded that in her life she has never asked for charity. Bad Black was released on bail to go for an operation for her breasts in Dubai but before the operation, she has first embarked on her music career and also telling off the baby father who is not about to take responsibility for a pregnancy from a former prostitute.
One Spencer told Black that: Insulting Eugene isn't gonna change anything and now that you are saved, may be you need to go slow with the insults, you can take care of the baby by yourself.
The bitter fight between the two camps (Pretty Glo and Nickita) is as a result of a Nigerian UK Promoter Chinedu Ikohora the director of Cee Cee Entertainment, the company that is bringing to Uganda Chris Martin and Mavado.
Club Rouge's Gareth Onyango has been dragged into the women catfights that dominated the whole of last week in which Pretty Glo's FB account was hacked into and malicious messages sent out.
Model Doreen Kabareebe is a close pal to Pretty Glo and has thrown her weight behind Pretty Glo though tackling the matter from another end. Doreen blames Gareth for sabotaging her relationship with a UK based Nigerian promoter, Chinedu who has been in town for the last weeks promoting the Mavado show.
Doreen was dumped by Chinedu Ikoroha and for this she blames Gareth now that he is very close to Chinedu. Pretty Glo told Doreen of what happened to her face book account and this is what Doreen wrote:
"Pretty Glo has just called me, Onyango Gareth thanks for the job well done with your team. If you claim you love Nick, then why go sleeping around, make someone pregnant and all you could say was not in a million years.''
Doreen claims to be saved just like Bad Black so what she did was to remove the above post from her wall. Meanwhile, city sex siren Tracy Bora was spotted with Chinedu at Club Rouge.
Jose Chameleone's wife is a laid-back person and rarely will you see her appearing in the news unless when she has given birth, graced Chamili's album launch or celebrating her birthday or the husband's birthday.
One Kuku Wazabanga aka Kasuku, the man behind the poll that made Bebe Cool a leading artiste in the past 50 years through his blog post wrote that Chameleone was set to lose his Seguku house to a bank due to a defaulted loan.
In his post, Kasuku wrote that they were investigating the whereabouts of the land title. Daniella who did not seem amused by what she termed as malicious rumours managed to call and told them that she was in possession of the land title.
The Kasuku team was bent on going ahead with their search for the title forcing Daniella to drive to Monitor Publications to show Kuku the original title to counter his allegations.
Kuku was called and he came walking while pulling his trousers up only to see Daniella at the reception who did not waste any time in showing him the land title for the said land. Kuku was like but..but atte you see..and the next thing he realised was a hot slap in the face.
Kuku and Daniella have both opted to sort this out legally. Reacting on the above development, the Doctor had this to say:
"Blaming me for your failure is alleging nonsense against me. I have been on top of the charts for a decade and somehow managed to succeed compared to my age, now whosoever is jealous out there should know that I'm getting better every other day!!
Distributors of imported wines and manufacturers of local wines have got another brand to add to their stock after Bebe Cool joined the local wine market with his Bebe Cool Red Sweet Wine brand.
Details of where its being made from and when it will be officially launched are still scanty but all we know is that this particular brand is Red Sweet Wine. Like all alcoholic drinks, wine should be consumed moderately to avoid headaches like the one Bebe Cool is going through on his wine bottle.
Bebe Cool joins the likes of Bella Wine in the Uganda Wine making industry and distributors like the Muyenga based Wine Garage will be more than happy to address fans of Gagamel as and when they demand for Bebe Cool Wine.
This comes at the time when his wife Zuena has made a name for herself in baking cakes. The timing is just right now that its the festive season, Bebe Cool is likely to make some money.
One Gagamel fan was over heard saying that: "Its a Gagamel ting dis. We are going to play Bebe Cool's X-mas music, eat cakes from Zuena pastries and take it down with Bebe Cool Wine.
The first Lamborghini to hit Kampala potholes is expected in two weeks time courtesy of tycoon Ivan Semwanga. This is the second Lamborghini to his fleet that he says will be for use in Uganda only.
Zari who is yet to get her Rolls Royce for having Gotten Back to Ivan says she is on top of her game and loving it as she posed right on top of their orange Lambo. Zari confirmed that the orange Lamborghini will be flown to Uganda by next Friday and will be parked right by her stores at Garden City the following week.
Zari's dolls can't wait to at least sit in the ride, take photos with it when it eventually shows up at Garden City based Zari Jewels and The Renaissance Man. The Lamborghin has a low ground clearance of about 5 inches and certainly not designed for our roads, may be this one in particular will be raised.
The colour of the Lamborghini leaves some space for another ride bearing in mind that The Zari All White Party is around the corner implying that we could see a white or creme Rolls Royce that matches the theme colour.
Tycoon Ssemwanga is also behind the First Ever Boat Cruise that will see money, booze and babes as the order of the cruise. Now with Bad Black bowing down honourably, we are yet to see what moves those vying for Zari's platform in the social circles will do to outshine her.
As Bad Black is in studio trying to record her four tracks that include 'Ugandan Gal' that she penned while in Luzira prison, her rival Janet Apuyo has given birth to a bouncing baby boy and unlike Bad Black, Janet's baby is half-caste and there is no need to smear the baby with a lot of baby powder to get a white complexion.
Good Black is trying to get her swagg back but its not easy. She came in a navy blue Toyota Nadia for her very first interview after getting bail from Luzira prison at Bukedde TV in Industrial area. It should be recalled that the vehicles she used to cruise then were posh rides ranging from BMWX6, AudiQ5, Range Rover Sport and a Merc C-Class.
During the interview, she revealed that she had given up on all men, and her only man she trusted at this point in time was Jesus. Good Black who is currently undergoing training and mentoring to be an ordained pastor said that she had forgiven her ex lover Greenhalgh and Meddie and that she can never ever re-unite with them in any way.
Meanwhile, one man who started a small business after a bundle that was thrown by Bad Black in the air as payment for washing her maroon BMWX6 learnt a few days back that that woman was actually Bad Black.
For the last six months, that man has been patiently waiting for the 'Mugaga' lady to bring her car for washing but to no avail. Much as he had quit car washing, he could put on his car washing gear on spotting Bad Black's ride.
We all have certain foods that we hate and can't stand to eat and for Bebe Cool its pork as he states on his wall; ''No I'm a Moslem and so I don't eat that thing."
You may be wondering why the Kamwako singer is bringing it out now. As you may already be aware, Bebe Cool was caught up in bar brawl at a popular pork joint in Nakulabye with fans who left his hummer windscreen smashed.
And the big question that followed was, what the hell was a moslem doing at a pork joint? To clarify this further, Bebe Cool said that he frequents the place for chicken Luwombo. May be this is where Zuena needs to up her game in the kitchen affairs.
"I want to clear the air by correcting whosoever is saying that I eat pork, No I'm a Moslem and I don't eat that thing. I go to Nakulabye to eat chicken luwombo and to also dine with ma local low end fanz..."
The above post had 537 likes, 157 shares and 1,172 comments of Bebe's followers who were accusing him of going to such a place while others were protesting to be called 'low end fanz'. Some of the fans who enjoy pork were threatening to switch their support to other artistes.
Bebe Cool has just released a Christmas carol for his christian fans and he is busy recording a video for it.
The Ndisa Butti singer has been in the news for having beaten up a queen dancer who was demanding for her money but before this could settle, Bebe Cool is back in the news after a bar brawl that left his hummer windscreen smashed.
Apparently, Bebe Cool was at a bar in Nakulabye on Friday night before a fan pushed him trying to see just how far this could go. Bebe Cool who was not with his bouncers at the time had to retaliate like a wounded buffalo pushing this fellow to the ground.
It later turned out that the majority of the revellers in the bar at the time were Bobi Wine fans so they used the opportunity to tell off Bebe Cool. The moment Bebe Cool pushed one of them, the rest resorted to pelting stones to the Big Size Hummer smashing the windscreen in the process.
Wandegeya police had to swing into action and some of the partiers at the bar were arrested. Bebe Cool's Hummer was still held at Wandegeya police by Saturday afternoon.
When this got to Bobi Wine, these were his words: "When a man resorts to violence, then his ability to reason has reached it's limit. As young boys we tend to have our energy in our muscles but when we grow up, we tend to have them in our brains, however, it should also be remembered that growing old is compulsory but growing up is optional"
If Judith Heard and Zari were men, they could be best of friends by now having put their differences aside and forged a way forward but being that they are ladies, the game rotates around undermining each other to win.
Judith Heard and Isaac Lugudde are close buddies but from the time Isaac got so close to Zari that even had to put 'The Zari Boss Lady' tattoo on his ribs, this did not amuse her a single bit and since then, she has been getting to terms with it.
A few days back, Zari dumped Isaac to reunite with hubby Ivan Ssemwanga. This has got JH's twitter account busy from the US where she is on holiday with the rest of her family.
Below are some of the tweets: "Intelligence is sexy and shows confidence. Don't act stupid to get attention. That sh*t isn't cute, its just annoying."
"Don't wish for publicity before u know what it's gonna do to u Naye Ojakuba bulungi u wanted news now u hot it. Enjoy the light hehehe"
"Sweetheart when u put your business in the public yes it will be our entertainment, so don't cry saying oh why is this happing hahaha"
One of the longest serving members of Afrigo Band Don Canta Ibanda has passed on. Afrigo Band is Uganda's greatest band that has been in existence since 1975. This will be a blow to Afrigo fans.
Juliana Kanyomozi: "Rest In Peace Don Canter..... As a huge fan of Afrigo Band, I will surely miss your Talent."
Iryn Namubiru: "Another great voice is gone. R.I.P. Don Canta. We were last on stage together this past July at Jazz Ville Bugolobi. All my condolences to his family, friends and the music fraternity."
His last performance was in Sweden on Dec-6 in a Grand Music Gala celebrating 50 years of independence but it was too cold yet he had a history of Asthma and pressure. He passed on at 5am on Saturday.
Appearing on Bukedde TV, Bad Black revealed a lot of info that has been a top secret before she was jailed. Among the top secrets, which only came to light after she announced that she had become saved was the father of her daughter.
Bad Black revealed that Ugandan football striker Andrew Eugene Sseppuya is the father of her last daughter Davinah, who was born a few weeks before being jailed. It should be recalled that Bad Black used to smear the baby with too much powder to disguise the look.
At the time, she was claiming that the baby was for David Greenhalgh. Bad Black also revealed the source of the money that was able to get her out of prison. It was the father of her first son Jonah who happens to be a close friend to David Greenhalgh.
Bad Black was asked about the Meddie Ssentongo huge tattoo on her back to which she said that it will be replaced with a flower now that tattoos never go off. Regarding her love life, Bad Black said that she will remain close to the dad of her first born Jonah who also paid for the bail money.
Bad Black is yet to spill more beans regarding her past life now that she is a born again.
Africa's multi award winning hip-hop duo P-Square will be performing in Uganda on Dec.21 but we only hope Silverback Investment is able to stop what happened in Accra a few days back when Peter and Paul Okoye were playing their hits back to back.
As the Nigerian stars performed during the Top of the World gig in Accra, the fans got so excited with some screaming their lungs out. The crowd was too huge that as the pushing among fans went on, it led to suffocation and exhaustion.
Some female fans who could not stand the pressure ended up fainting in the process. Next Friday, P-Square will bring Rwanda fans to their knees at Amahoro Stadium.
On Dec 21, The P-Square with their 11 Man band will be live in Kampala at Lugogo Cricket Oval and they want to see all the beautiful Onyinye's gracing the show in the 'CHOP MA MONEY' concert 2012.
The Nigerian duo have termed their Rwanda and Uganda tours an invasion on East Africa.
As Christmas is fast approaching, Bad Black is out of prison, Zari and Ivan Ssemwanga have reunited as a couple, exchanged Christmas gifts already to celebrate their rekindled love. The couple has gone ahead to share their latest photo together with Zari seated right on top of Ivan's office desk.
This was followed by very many messages from friends and well wishers who were happy for them. Ivan's close pal, King Lawrence said that he could actually contribute Shs200m if the two were to wed.
It should be recalled that Zari was a few days back trying on a wedding dress in one of the bridal shops down South so it does not surprise if Zari was giving Ivan an update on whether the dress was just right or they needed to try elsewhere.
In the same vein, it will not be surprising if the couple is planning to wed this very year now that Zari has even dumped the basket ball player and told whoever cared to know that Its now official, she is not dating Isaac Lugudde.
Ivan and Zari have three boys and the two have been together for about 12 years. Zari introduced Ivan to her parents home in Munyonyo a day before Christmas in December 2011. The couple was forced to make up at least before that anniversary date bearing in mind that the introduction ceremony was one of a kind with all sorts of gifts in form of cars, cows, cash being passed on to Zari's parents.
In August, the couple split with Zari citing domestic violence. During the break, the two were able to hook up somehow. Zari was with the basketball player as Ivan hooked up Nickita who looked more or less like Zari.
Their in-laws were able to reconcile both parties putting an end to all those babes that were strategizing on hooking up with Ivan.
The couple has now put their differences aside and are about to hit town to coordinate their respective events. Zari is organizing the The All White Party at Guvnor while Ivan is behind the First Ever Boat Cruise that will have over 200 booty-full babes boarding the boat cruise for free.
Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black was on (Dec 6) released from jail after she paid the full amount of shs100m that was required by court before she could be allowed to seek medication for her leaky breasts.
Armed with a holy bible at the court premises, Bad Black said that she will spend her first night out of prison at a church in Nsambya. “I’m not a drunkard anymore, I’ve given up partying and I'm a born again.” Bad Black said.
This prompted laughter from those who were surrounded her at the time with some asking why she was clad in a micro mini skirt yet she is claiming to be saved. Bad Black told them that the lord welcomes you the way you are and this is office wear.
Bad Black added that she has forgiven David Greenhalgh and Meddie Ssentongo for what happened. This is not all, she has also given up on all men and will instead concentrate on taking good care of her children and preaching the word of God.
Bad Black is supposed to report to court every two weeks. Her parents were in court to receive her but by the time she was done with hugging them, the dad's white shirt was lipstick stained.
Shanita who was visibly happy at the time grabbed a cell phone and called one of her close buddies in Luzira prison and asked her to keep her yellow uniform and sandals safely.
Addressing journalists outside court, Bad Black wondered who even came to call her Bad Black, I'm Good Black and now Pastor Good Black.”
It’s not yet clear when she will be traveling to Dubai to have her breast implants removed.
Bad Black has eventually raised the shs100m bail money that was required by court before she could got for treatment to remove her breast implants that had started to leak to her stomach wall.
Veteran Musician Halima Namakula has been coordinating the soliciting of funds from friends and other tycoons who included Kwagalana group and various women from several markets under their saving schemes.
Two weeks back, Bad Black had raised Shs60m but on getting the entire amount, she did not waste any minute alerting the court authorities to secure her release. Shanita Namuyimbwa will now be travelling to Dubai to have the implants removed.
On securing her release, Bad Black told those who were outside the court that she is now a born again and will not take any more alcohol before getting into a waiting blue pick-up that drove her off to some unknown destination.
Big Brother Stargamer Goldie Harvey from Nigeria was in town last Thursday launching her latest single 'Miliki' ft our very own Navio.
The show was graced by Kenyan rapper Prezzo who happens to be Goldie's better half after the two hooked up in the Big Brother house. Mad Traxx from Kenya was also at Club Rouge where Goldie was performing live.
Miliki is one of her three singles off her Invasion album and the other two are 'Give it to Me' which she did with J. Martins from Nigeria and 'Skibobo' ft Tanzania's AY who won a Channel O award recently.
Navio was in the UK at the time Goldie unveiled the track to Ugandan fans. According to Goldie Harvey, 'Miliki' is already doing very well in Nigeria and she hopes it does the same in Uganda. Mampi is another stargamer whose tracks, 'Swilili' and 'Why' are doing so well on the Ugandan airwaves.
During her press conference at Club Rouge, Goldie was asked about her relationship with rapper Prezzo and to this she said: "Its only God to tell what's in store for us."
At this rate, we are yet to witness a catfight between Natasha Sally and Club Rouge's Events Manager Nickita Bachu following an exchange between the two gals who have kids fathered by the same man.
Yesterday, One upcoming artiste, Pretty Glo had her facebook account hacked into and the hacker made several nasty comments that left those in her circles shocked but she was quick to delete them.
Pretty Glo embarked on hunting down the suspects who could be behind the act and her findings were leading to Nickita and Gareth. Natasha Sally got wind of this and was quick to defend Gareth who she fondly refers to as(Gary):
"I don't think Gareth would do that! I can put my hand, Its definitely Niki. Nickita Bachu is an insecure lil devil who wants to fight every pretty gal in town!am sure Gareth had nothing to do with such posts! Its all her trust me! she's an attention seeking whore always aiming for cheap popularity!
If she could write all that stuff pretending to be you then I pity her lame miserable life!instead of breastfeeding her baby she's starting war with all the cute gals in town thinking its the only way she can prevent Gary from talking to them."
Meanwhile, Gareth and Nickita have sought legal redress. Nickita says that at the time of the hacking, baby Kylie was breast feeding as she slept. "I categorically state that I have nothing whatsoever to do with what happened as I'm not a professional HACKER as some of you have been made to believe." Nickita wrote on her wall.
As the year comes to an end, we are noticing strange things signaling better times ahead. Last Thursday as Bebe Cool was being unplugged, several artistes graced his show as the 'Kamwako' singer did his thing for two hours non stop.
Notable among them were the Goodlyfe Crew-Moze Radio and Weasel TV who spent most of their time cozying up with babes. This came as a surprise to many who have been watching events between these camps.
With songs like 'Zuena', 'Bread and Butter' and even a Soga version of Omusadha Taidhi Na Lusoga....! which were a direct attack on Zue and Bebe, one could not imagine that they could end up coming anywhere close to BEBE.
Moze Radio was spotted with a hot babe in Silk Oxygen looking like he was about to kiss the babe who seemed to be enjoying every moment. Weasel on the other hand was spotted with Bad Black's former pal Hamida.
The Goodlyfe Crew have had all reasons to smile after their hit 'Can't Let You Go' beat Beyonce's 'I Was Here' on the MTV top 10 Base Chart. Some of their recent songs include 'Obude' and 'Magnetic'. They have also just done a collabo with bummy Desire Luzinda.
Sarah Namukwaya aka G-Snake unleashed her mini snake when the hard stuff she was taking during the Bebe Cool Unplugged show at Silk knocked her down.
The Kampala Enyuma Kilo star hit club with her boo that recently bought her a Land-Rover Customised with G-SNAKE as a push present. This being one of the best gifts after giving birth, Sarah Namukwaya is left with no option but to shower his bouy with love.
G-Snake performs with a huge snake on stage which she kisses on the head leaving revellers horrified as the it moves up her body while hissing and this is what she calls music.
Performing without a snake is no performance at all. In these shots, G-Snake let out the small 'snake' and the next thing his lover realised, he was gasping for breath.
South African based socialite Zari Hassan has been trying out her wedding gown and practising how to walk with it ahead of her day that is yet to be announced. Insider sources say, it should be before X-mas this year though Zari is still tight lipped.
With her controversial love life, It was unfair for her to start off the cat-walk rehearsals before setting the record straight on whether it was Ivan or the basket ball player, Issac Lugudde. This forced her to tweet what she is terming as an official statement on the Ivan-Isaac saga that has left many confused.
"Am not getting married neither I'm I dating Lugudde! My apologies to all parties involved! My kids and work r my priorities." This statement could not go unchallenged as far as the basket baller is concerned but Zari swiftly defended herself.
"We did date a while but as of now I'm setting the record straight", Zari replied to one concerned follower on twitter. Isaac Lugudde was quick at thanking Zari for having cleared the space but his next line left a lot to be desired.
"No need for apologies, PLZ just don't mention my name in ur tweets! Damnnnnn. It's funny how people get used and played in the name of "attention" but it is what it is! Life goes on! lol"
Recently, Isaac got The Boss Lady tattoo on his ribs, still has a wide collection of steamy pics with Zari but all this is fast turning into memories. The former exes, Zari and Ivan are now busy promoting and supporting each other on their forthcoming events.
Zari is behind the Zari All White Party to be held at Guvnor on the 27.Dec.2012 and three days later, it will be the first ever boat cruise by Ivan Semwanga that will take off at Gaba with tycoons paying 1m, Ordinary for men 100,000 and free for the hot bikini babes.
Last Thursday during the Sanyu Breakfast show, Fatboy announced that he had become a hip-hop artist and was already in studio recording tracks that hip-hop hadn't seen in a while. This got fellow presenter Seanice so excited after it turned out that Fatboy was serious and was to use FBZ as his stage name.
In 2007, Fatboy released his debut single 'Are We On for CHOGM' before taking a five-year hiatus, but now the 88.2 FM morning show co-host has bounced back! In the meantime, FBZ is exploring options of teaming up with some Hip-Hop groups like Klear Kut.
The Alive and Kicking host has always been into hip hop though in the background and now feels the time is now to rock the stage. Meanwhile, his Sunday was a bit boring bearing in mind that UMEME had resumed some load-shedding of sorts.
This forced him to place a few calls to establish who had power and it turned out that the mom was not among those affected by the load-shedding. FBZ did not waste any time to get himself to the mom's crib armed with his play stations but on getting their, the mom was glued on UBC Television enjoying the ''I DO'' programe.
During the program, Fatboy appeared bored at least going by what he shared on his wall at the time; "But UBC, Can't you show anything else besides "I DO" Its been on for the last three hours." Fatboy wrote on his wall.
Last month we broke the story of how Zari was to Start her Own Magazine and now in her own words Zari says: "Planning on a magazine come 2013, fashion, lifestyle, health, beauty tips, inspiring stories, counselling and so much more."
The name Zari is not as common as John or Michael and that is how the magazine passes to becalled ZARI otherwise had it been called either of the above names, then it would sound like all John's and Michael's own it.
Since Zari is her name, some critics were quick to ask whether this is another avenue to talk about herself, but the socialite was quick to say that: "It's not about me, Its a public magazine, It will have nothing about "Zari" except the name which is the brand, even the cover page models won't be me."
Through her wall, Zari was inviting for ideas on what to feature in the magazine and this was one of the responses: "There should be a kids corner and something that addresses the community instead of having skimpy dressed use women, you should highlight issues like domestic violence, ritual murders, corruption, poor road network, the decreasing reading culture and if possible help or partner with some rural community libraries so that they can implement their plans, adult literacy etc."
The African Woman Magazine was one of the best magazines in town but now that it's off the news stands, we only hope the ZARI magazine will be able to bridge the gap now that Sylvia and Zari are close buddies.
This year has seen Zari do more of investing starting with Zari Jewels, The Renaissance Man (Men's Suits) and now the ZARI Magazine with its inaugural issue expected in March 2013.
After shaking her bom bom and waist in the 'Ndisa Butti' video, Ritah Karungi still has an outstanding balance and all efforts of getting it had proved futile. Last Saturday, Ritah in the company of Brian Nkoyooyo and 2 other gals were cruising in their white Ipsum before one of them spotted Bebe Cool's Hummer at a filling station in Kamwokya.
Ritah who was not very drunk at the time recalled how Bebe Cool still had a balance to pay after she wiggled her waist in the Ndisa Buti video early in the year. This is when she called Bebe Cool aside and reminded him of the money he owed her.
The next thing Ritah realised, three bouncers were beating her and the other two gals who included Esther and Ann. This is when Brian took off to Kiira Road police to register a case against Bebe Cool. Apparently, the queen dancers had been paid through their manager but looks like they did not get their portion.
In April this year, Ritah was approached by a one Adam who told her that she was to feature in a video that was to be shot from Fang Fang Chinese Restaurant but on getting there, Ritah demanded for her money but was only given 50,000/- that was meant for the costumes leaving a balance of 200,000/- and that is the money Ritah Karungi is demanding for.
According to Bebe Cool's manager Robert Tikita, he says these gals were fully paid and they don't have any outstanding dues. The money was paid to Adam, the guy who brought them so they should contact him for more details.
Bebe Cool is quite busy preparing for his Unplugged show at Club Silk today and then proceed to Nebbi tomorrow and on Saturday he will be live in Arua. He did not forget the fans that voted for him as ''Uganda@50 best artiste''
Club Rouge's Events Manager Nickita Bachu and Gareth Onyango have a baby together named Kylie who has made a month today but instead of celebrating this, Nickita is holed up in a war with glamour gal Natasha Sally who was trying to open her 'old files' with Gareth.
Nickita got wind of this and did not mince her words in reminding Sally of how Gareth dumped her because he preferred her (Nickita) body to hers. She further assured her that even after giving birth to Kylie, she was still having a hot body.
This did not go down well with Sally who dashed to her wall: ''Ok this b***h is obviously just obsessed with me! She just had a baby like three weeks ago and instead of taking care of her, she's busy reminding me of how her body shape is better than mine...Gareth and I are just friends and will remain so."
At this rate Tata Kylie has to come in before the gals tear each other into pieces. Nickita is in the meantime ensuring that all is well for Nigeria's Goldie who is in town to launch her new song 'Miliki' at Club Rouge on 30.November.2012 that she did with our very own Navio.
Iryn Namubiru(31) might be having issues back in France with her ex hubby Franck Morel for battering and child custody, but that has not stopped her from coming over to Uganda to cash in on the festive season.
Speaking to one local daily, Iryn ruled out reuniting with her ex and actually said that she has been studying one mystery man during the turbulent times. This comes at the time when Franck had secured a job with the French Embassy in Uganda that could allow him monitor her movements at night, but with the recent developments, its not clear if he will settle for the job.
The 'Nabulo' singer was last seen during the MTN Marathon doing 10kms and at the end of it all, her timing was 1:53:19, which was not bad after an unpleasant scene at a train station in Paris a few weeks back.
Iryn in her own voice is heard over local FM stations drumming up support for a show that will see two top bands, Fusion and Afrigo band performing. The show that will be held on December 16, 2012 is sponsored by Water Front Beach Entebbe. The 'By Far' singer, Bobi Wine is the guest artist.
Tonight, Iryn will be at Theatre La Bonita performing alongside the Crackers. Meanwhile, she was seen walking with difficulty after coming out of her Land Cruiser Cygnus. The limping must have been caused by the 10kms race she did in the recently concluded MTN Marathon.

Happy Birthday, Juliana! With a prolific music career that began in the 2000's with her then I-Jay group with Iryn Namubiru, the multi-award winning singer has cloaked 31 and she still looks curvy, beautiful and young.
This year has been a good one for the mother of one and the Pearl of Africa Music (PAM) Awards Artiste (2008) at least compared to the past years when she could complete a full year without releasing a single hit.
From winning the BEFFTA (UK) Award, releasing her latest single 'Ndibulungi', featuring on the Tusker Project Fame music Academy as a judge and now her collaboration with Ghanaian-American sensation star, Jay Ghartey dubbed 'Love You Better' is tipped to top charts in 2013 at least from the DJ's and journalists who have had the opportunity to listen to the song.
"She has a voice that is rare to find anywhere; she's also a classy young lady and it's easy to see why her people love her so much. I am honoured to work with such talent," Jay Ghartey said while giving his views on Juliana in Accra.
Responding to the birthday messages on her wall, Juliana wrote: "Thank you all for showering me with so much love. You've touched my heart deeply. Now I know just how much you guys think of me. I surely felt the love from each one of you. May God bless you all abundantly."
The 9th edition of the MTN Kampala Marathon was held last Sunday at Kololo Airstrip. Over 18,000 participants registered to 'run with their hearts'. The top three positions were dominated by either Kenyans or Ugandans.
Kiprotich's recent gold medal has done a lot in motivating Ugandans because in the previous marathons, you could only see Kenyans taking over the first top three positions but this only happened in the 42kms which were taken by Kangor Dominic Kimwetich.
Uganda took the first top three positions in the women 21kms which saw the world steeplechase champion Dorcus Inzikuru take the third position. Below is the list of the top two winners in the 10kms, Half Marathon(21kms) and Full Marathon(42kms).

Nigerian UK based promoter Chinedu Ikoroha left gals yearning for more as all tribes of booze was flowing endlessly as he launched the Mavado and Chris Martin Concert that will be held on December 29, 2012.
The same party doubled as his 30th birthday as the babes were all over the dude dancing and shouting after taking off their high heels that were threatening to throw them. The gals were screaming and dancing to every song as they wiggled their behinds.
Chinedu is the guy that brought in Sisqo and now is bringing in Mavado and Chris Martin to Uganda.
Juliana's passion for singing comes from deep within her soul mind and heart and she is not in it for money so if you ever wondered why she is not quick at launching every now and then or even releasing hits every week, then you now have the answer.
The multi award winning artiste was watching local telly when they all over sudden played three of her songs she used to sing way back in the early 2000's when she used to mime songs like 'From a Distance', Brandy's version of 'Everything I do' bringing back the memories.
"All I wanted was to sing and it didn't matter that I wasn't being paid. Up to now I still have the same passion for singing. Its not so much about the money, music is food to my soul. It uplifts me even when I'm down.
Now if you are doing music either as a profession or as a pass time, the above lines from the Tusker Project Fame judge and the 'Ndibulungi' singer should be words of inspiration.
She put music first and money last and that is what has kept her going all these years.
Chris Brown(23) was to perform in Kampala on 23.Dec.2012 but the latest information from the organisers is that the show has been postponed to March 2013.
In a press briefing that was held at Sheraton Kampala Hotel this morning, the organisers noted that 'The Don't Wake Me Up' singer has been fully paid though his manager does not want him to fly on Christmas eve.
The next best period the American singer Christopher Maurice could avail for Uganda was in March 2013, so a new date will be communicated.
Chris Brown is still serving his five year probation for having beaten his ex-girlfriend Rihanna way back in 2009 something that has led angry protesters trying to spurn his concerts with the latest being the Guyana show that was to take place on December 26, 2012. Women activists made it clear that he was not welcome, so he became uncomfortable and cancelled it.
Cindy is recruiting new members to her yet to be named band that will be operational next year. The former Blu3 member while reaching out to her followers on facebook wrote:
"Hi beautiful people, I'm starting a band of my own. So if you can sing or play drums, guitar, keyboards..holla and I'll put you on the list for auditions which start next year."
Cindy is emulating former Blu3 member Lillian Mbabazi of the Sundowners band, Sarah Zawedde of Zawee band and Iryn Namubiru who is tagged to Fusion band. Well established bands like Barbed Wire Thong, Milege and Quella are doing well forcing these artistes to set foot in that area.
The 'Amateeka' singer is quick to add that she is not interested in learners as she has no time to train them. Her inbox was being flooded by people who wanted to be trained as opposed to those who were willing to work with her.
Queen Dancers were equally requesting to be part of her band but she put the record straight that she did not want dancers. This is a new years resolution for the singer cum song writer in the year 2013.
Early in the month, Cindy had a performance in Dubai and also took off time to shoot a video in one of the deserts in Dubai, it will be released soon.
Sudhir Ruparelia(56) has been sealed as the richest Ugandan after owning half of Kampala's business district and the best hotels. Some of Sudhir's assets include Speke Hotel, Kabira Country Club, Speke Resort Munyonyo and Crane Bank among others.
In the list of top 40 richest Africans this year released by Forbes an American business magazine, Sudhir was ranked number 18 making him East Africa's richest and the only Ugandan on the list.
Earlier on when Forbes was in the process of coming up with this list, five richest Ugandans were listed including Patrick Bitature, Charles Mbire, Amos Nzeyi and Armali Kharmali, but none of them made it to the top 40 list.
In an effort to try and feature on that list like he did when the top five Ugandans were announced, Ivan Semwanga, a Ugandan based in South Africa tried to beat the queue by dashing to a casino where he wagered $34,000 but lost everything.
After making one of the biggest and quickest losses of all time while in a Casino in South Africa, Ivan Semwanga simply went for dinner with his pals to try and forget about the loss.

Today is 'November Thanksgiving Day' in the USA which is celebrated every fourth Thursday of November in remembrance of the pilgrims and to give thanks. Isaac Lugudde is equally celebrating this holiday having been in the US for a greater part of his tender life.
In his message Isaac wrote: "I'm so thankful to those that continuously hold me up and have my back, front and side." These included family, basketball teammates and his ex-wife among others. "My ex-wife regardless of what, the love is still there and my prayers go out to you in your trying time."
The basketballer left out Zari on the list but its understandable at least going by what he tweeted shortly after; "I'm in a happy relationship with a lot of ups and downs! Happy: emotionally being on a rollercoaster but on it with a person you love."
Now Zari managed to miss the Sean Paul Concert but sneaked into the country to check on Isaac to be sure all was well following his two page interview with pics of them holding and kissing in the mighty Red Pepper. She flew back to South Africa after two days but during that time, she was 'undercover' and it was only Isaac Lugudde and a few of her dolls in her circles that learnt of her being around.
On December 27, Zari has organised the Zari All White Party which Ivan Semwanga, the father of Zari's 3kidz has confirmed to attend but we are only watching that space because Isaac Lugudde(with a boss lady tattoo on his ribs) will also be in attendance at Guvnor on that day.
Its not clear if Ivan will come with Nickita because it looks like she is equally not happy as Ivan is on rampage. First he advertises for single ladies to contact him on behalf of his single and searching friend 'King' and being that he is loaded and doing 'Abanonya' of sorts, single ladies are flooding his inbox.
On the other hand, Zari has been invited for the boat cruise that is being organised by Ivan but she has distanced herself from that function that threatens to be a beauty contest with 'Ogas' dishing out dollars Nigerian style to the best gals that look nice in swim-suits.
As Bad Black was busy looking for the Shs100m to get her out of prison to seek medication for her breasts, her co-accused Meddie Ssentongo is living a life of a super star while in Luzira prison.
Meddie is a darling to most in mates after he bought them three television sets, one for the mosque, the born agains and the main dormitory plus footballs. They made him the sports manager following this.
The recent Eid al-Adha celebrations, three cows were slaughtered courtesy of Meddie. According to the prison warden our snoop talked to, he said that the prisoners have time for everything ranging from sports, entertainment, prayers, watching television and classes. Meddie makes himself busy with mainly football and basketball.
Our snoop confirmed that the guy actually looks good, occasionally goes to the library where he finds a computer to update his wall and follow what's trending. Meddie will be done with his sentence mid next year.
In July 2012, Meddie was sentenced to 18months on two counts of conspiracy to defraud.
Shanita Namuyimbwa aka BAD Black was not produced before the court of appeal yesterday after she failed to raise Shs100m. This was meant to see her out of prison temporarily to seek medication for her breasts that are threatening to leak.
Instead, Shanita was in the Magistrates court at City Hall trying to deal with the traffic offence case. Court gave them an option to negotiate out of court failure of which court would proceed and hear the matter, however, by yesterday the two parties had not moved a step.
Bad Black had Shs11bn in a span of 9months before all this came to a complete stop. In July 2012, the anti-corruption court found her guilty of embezzlement and sentenced her to four years in jail. It was however ruled that she did not have to refund the money to Greenhalgh but she serves the sentence.
Shs100m is just 0.1 of a billion and the mere fact that she can't raise this much to walk to freedom has left many who knew her just around this time last year in shock. What Bad Black needs right now is not frequent visits to Luzira by her pals especially the gal brigade but to be seen at least making an attempt to fundraise some funds.
Meanwhile, on the day she learnt that she had been granted bail on condition that she parts with Shs100m, she told some snoops that she is now a born again and at a level of a pastor though as she was still narrating her story, her parents came around and she changed the topic.

Bobi Wine was watching from a distance as Bebe Cool and Chameleone were busy sorting themselves out on who had a better crowd at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds.
He decided to go about it his own way to ensure that the Kyadodondo show in particular does not register a flop and at the end of it all, it was a success at least going by the numbers. Bobi Wine invited the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) leader Kizza Besigye and Jose Chameleone who did not disappoint.
Other guests who attended included; the Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, Kampala Metropolitan Police Boss Felix Kaweesi, Juma Seiko, Godfrey Nyakaana, and Kawempe mayor Mubarak Munyagwa among others.
The line up of the artistes who curtain raised for Bobi Wine included Aziz Azion, Coco Finger with his trademark dance followed by the Goodlyfe Crew. Bobi Wine hit the stage at about 10:30pm and kicked off the show with 'Nyimbira Kabaka Wange' which cements him as the Omubanda Wa Kabaka.
He then moved to a thrilling performance doing songs like Mr.Kataala, Kiwaani, Carolina and Mazzi Mawanvu. Bobi switched to his very old songs that included 'Wesotinge' and Bad Man from Kamwokya among others.
The Omubanda Wa Kabaka took a break and on bouncing back, he rolled off with 'Matyansi Butyampa', Paul Kafeero's 'Dipo Nazigala', 'Ebibuuzo', 'Ekirooto'' and Obululu Tebutwawula' which were more on the political stand and a good message to the fans given the guests in VIP.
Bobi Wine was specifically impressed by Chameleone and other artistes gracing his album launch, and this is what he had to say: "To all fellow artistes that came for my concert, thank you very much. I never knew that I have so many friends amongst my comrades..as for the fans, Iam speechless, I love you so much, thanks for your support, God Bless."

Back in the days, it used to be Congolese Music or Lingala being played in clubs, radio and TV stations but local artistes were able to drive them out to the extent that if any of them dared to stage a show, they could get a feel of what it means to perform to empty chairs.
In the last decade or so, local artistes have been enjoying the limelight with clubs playing more of local music than foreign music, Telecom and Beer companies sponsoring their album launches. This was the time when Chameleone's husky voice and Moze Radio's voice could make fans faint.
This has long changed to the extent that big artistes are not getting the required numbers attending their shows something that has equally put them on pressure that all they can do is to engage in petty squabbles to remain relevant.
Music pundits attribute this change to the fact that our artistes are too busy either performing at bars throughout the week, staging concerts here and there and performing at parties let alone corporate functions. In most cases they leave when they are knackered.
Now with that cycle, one wonders what time is accorded to compose meaningful music like it was the case ten years back. Event managers are quite aware of this and they have acted swiftly and turned to international artistes to bridge the gap.
Judy Boucher, Azonto, Sisqo, DeMarco, Wayne Wonder, Konshens and just recently Sean Paul have performed in Kampala. Its important to note that some of the shows terribly flopped but just as well, that would have been money being spent on a local artiste.
International artistes yet to come to Uganda around Christmas season include P-Square (Dec 21) and two days later, Chris Brown will follow. Mavado and Kirk Franklin are also expected.
Most of the top artistes from Jamaica like Beenie Man, Mr. Vegas, Sean Kingston and Elephant Man among others have already performed here and what is left is recycling them. We could see this trend changing and artistes like Mampi from Zambia of the Swililili fame will end up staging shows in Uganda.
There is need to improve the quality of the Ugandan music especially for the big names in the industry otherwise focused artistes like Maurice Kirya are slowly but surely claiming their positions.
Keko, Navio, Tonix and Maurice Kirya were the Ugandan artistes nominated in the 9th Annual Channel O Music Video Awards (CHOMVA) 2012. The main event was held in Soweto on Saturday Night with 53 countries watching live on DSTV Ch 320.
Most Gifted African East Video of the Year was taken by Tanzania's AY. Our very own female rapper Keko and Navio lost out on this one.
Most Gifted Female Video of the Year - went to Zahara, 'Loliwe' beating Keko and a few others.
Most Gifted Afro Pop Video of the Year - Was taken by Ashimi Olawale aka Brymo from Nigeria making it hard for our very own Maurice Kirya and Tonix to bring this home.
Other winners of the night were P-Square who took the award of Most Gifted Duo of the Year, DJ Cleo with his 'Facebook' hit taking the Most Gifted Dance Video of the Year.
Most Gifted Video of the year was 'Oliver Twist' by D-Banj which also took the main award of the night, Music Video of the Year.
In his acceptance speech, DBanj said: "A big thank you to Africa, make some noise and put your hands up if you believe it's our time to shine, I'm DBanj a good thank you to our parents.."
On Tuesday (Nov 13), Daniella Atim Mayanja turned 28 and her birthday celebration was held at Centenary Park based Barbeque Lounge. "Happy Birthday my darling wife Daniella Atim Mayanja, may you live to blow a million candles." Chameleone wrote while inviting friends and fans for the party.
During the open bar party that was partly sponsored by Nile Gold, the couple got so romantic that they could not stop kissing and holding each other as they celebrated the night away. Daniella was given a first class return ticket to Bahamas for one week with a friend of her choice.
On getting to Bahamas, Daniella will stay in a five star hotel and go for sight seeing, shopping plus other attractions while in the Bahamas. Just recently, Chameleone constructed for his wife Daniella Villas which are two self contained apartments that she was free to let out as a way of boosting her income.
Early this year, Jose Chameleone and Daniella Atim were blessed with a baby gal Meanwhile, Daniella's birthday hair cut left many wondering where she got the guts. Daniella is the type who is so reserved that the last thing you would expect from her was to go for a Mario Balotelli hair cut combined with Moses Golola's look-alike arrow.
We like your swagg gal and for now, enjoy your holiday.
Bad Black was on Friday (Nov 16) granted a shs100m cash bail to go for a medical check-up something that made her smile in a long time, but this was short lived. She sought clarity on whether she had to deposit cash or non cash equivalent, she was told by the registrar of the Supreme Court, Erias Kisawuzi that it had to be cash for her to walk to freedom.
Bad Black broke down in tears on realizing that the bail conditions were indeed tough. Assuming Bad Black had paid the money, she was to report to court every two weeks. Local musician Halima Namakula and Black's mother who were among the sureties tried to look for the money but by virtue of the amount, they failed to raise it in a few hours.
Bad Black was told to come back to court on Monday. Now this is very sad bearing in mind that Shanita Namuyimba while celebrating her birthday to mark 22years spent over 70million but could not raise 100m to walk to freedom.
Bad Black's lawyers and family members are working very hard to at least raise that much but it's not clear how that will be achieved as most of the tangible assets that Bad Black had acquired like the house, cars among others have all crossed to the company.
The BMWX6 was impounded by URA after it was discovered that it had been assessed as an X5 as opposed to X6, implying that more money was instead required for that particular one, her black range rover sport was held during that time the authorities were keen on impounding all vehicles with duplicate number plates.
The AudiQ5 was long repossessed by David as the log-book was in his name anyway.This leaves her with a Kompressor which is still held at Kiira Rd Police post after she knocked down a family of three. The rest of the known cars had been sold already. Her house in Munyonyo, we are told has already been taken over by her rival who is fit to burst.
Shanita Namuyimbwa aka Bad Black is out of Luzira prison after being granted a shs100m cash bail to go and seek medical attention for her breast implants in Dubai. Bad Black's implants were threatening to leak to her stomach wall.
She is one of those expected to attend the Tugambire Ku Jennifer Launch that will be held today. Others expected to attend are the FDC leader Kizza Besigye and Jose Chameleone.
Bad Black was sentenced to four years in jail in July but she had served 5 months before her breast implants started rotting. It was on those grounds that she was granted bail to go for further medical attention.
Her co accused Meddie Ssentongo is still serving his sentence of 18 months and now has about a year to be out.
Bad Black is set to lose her breast implants or better still have them replaced if court can grant her request of going for a medical check up in Dubai where the breast implants were carried out.
Appearing in court yesterday, Bad Black came clad in a blue 'Gomesi' as opposed to her usual short revealing outfits from Luzira Prison to know her fate on the appeal against the conviction.
Bad Black developed serious complications with her breasts and now fears they could leak to her stomach wall or even develop breast cancer. On that note, the judge issued summons for Dr. Andama from Mulago Hospital who recommended that Shanita Namuyimbwa aka Bad Black should go for further treatment.
''I have to be sure whether you're sick or not, by the way I don't even see the hospital you are going to in Dubai. It's not written anywhere. Remember you are no longer innocent you are criminal,'' the judge said.
Court was adjourned and later when Dr. Andama appeared, he confirmed to court that Bad Black has breast implants and they needed to be removed. At the end of all this, Justice Stella Arach postponed the case to Friday this week to decide on her fate.
Meanwhile, as Bad Black was in court, her co accused Meddie Ssentongo was tweeting this: "Be always optimistic, but always be prepared for the worst..that's why I'm still alive..Thanks be to the almighty."

The big boys in the music industry Chameleone and Bebe Cool have been doing what they do best and that is bickering over nothing. Bebe Cool accuses Chameleone for not bathing and Chameleone advises him to do more research on financial and debt management principals.
As all this was going on, Omubanda Wa Kabaka, Bobi Wine was returning from Sudan where he was given a free ride in a chopper to a Juba police to help with investigations but on coming back to Kampala, he returned to a rude welcome.
The Tugambire Ku Jenipher posters had been pulled down and replaced with other posters redirecting fans to KK Beach and Lido Beach on the same date of his album launch. This made the Ghetto gladiator mad that he dashed to his wall and other media stations to put the record straight:
"Ladies and Gentlemen, Iam officially announcing that I don't have any show at KK Beach. Whoever has reproduced my launch posters and is advertising that Im in some kind of competition at KK Beach Vs Another artist at Lido Beach on the same date, is out of his mind.." Bobi Wine wrote.
Bobi is now pursuing those behind the sabotage but at the same time asking Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to show cause why his 'Tugambire Ku Jennifer' posters were pulled down even before 16.Nov.2012, the date for the launch and yet he had paid them in full.
Bebe Cool and Jose Chameleone held their album launches already and are right now engaged a cyber war on who had a better crowd. Bobi Wine is already looking at alternatives should his show flop, he will take on KK Beach and KCCA for trying to confuse his fans who have vowed to come in big numbers.
Following the bitter facebook exchange over the weekend, Chameleone who bagged the East African Recognition Award in the recently held Kisima Awards has ceased fire.
In his words Chameleone says: "Ceasefire, fans and Leone Island family, It was a reasoning Sunday, no hatred! Have a peaceful week,"
But the Kamwako star is not taking any of that and he says why start a war that you cannot sustain. Bebe Cool replied shortly after: "If you can't sustain a war, don't start one. Lego Cyber warfare. Eno siyakukasuka macup naye ya kunyiga mapesa." meaning that this is not a bottle throwing war but playing with the keyboard.
He concludes by saying Gagamel forever we nuh retreat we nuh surrender ceasefire ???on what deal?
It all started with Bebe Cool branding Chameleone Neighbour 'A' and reminding him of how he failed to perform at the olympics and branded Bobi Wine neighbour 'B' for having bought a boat and called it a yacht.
Chameleone retaliated with Daniella Villas to contain the 'Kamwako' star who he referred to as neighbour 'Z' a trick that actually worked because after that we saw Bebe Cool trying to adopt the commercial avenue with Zuena talking of renting out her apartments and then just recently her cake business.
The artistes had kind of kept their low not until the Kamwako launch in November that was held at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds the same venue Chameleone held his Valu-Valu launch. This is now the cause of the current beef after Chameleone's crowd was way bigger than that of Bebe Cool.
Chameleone took to his wall and told his fans of how he was laughing and felt like laughing for the rest of the week. The Moto-Moto singer's laughter was cut short as he had to prepare for his performance at Lugogo Cricket Oval during Sean Paul's Concert.
Chameleone had another show at Club Obligatto on top of being the main curtain raiser at Dutty Paul's show at Lugogo in the same night. It rained heavily that day, and with most fans opting for the international star, Sean Paul, Club Obligato had more empty chairs than fans.
Bebe Cool used the flop opportunity to hit back at Chameleone telling him of how an upcoming artiste was better than him after filling up the same venue to full capacity. On that note, Bebe Cool told Chameleone not open his mouth again.
What followed was Chameleone to be forced to buy a black board to teach his Kiwatule based neighbour a few lessons as seen in the above wall shots. The Kiwatule man did not spare him either.
Tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga has continued to protest being excluded from the official Forbes list of top rich Ugandans.
The latest info coming in is that he has donated Shs4m to one Prince Charles Ssebuuma who was born blind to enrol in a school for the blind. Appearing on Bukedde while looking for sponsors, David Katongole from Lwengo District said that the mom died two months after he was born and since then, he has been taking care of him, but now, he can no longer afford.
One Kankesa jokingly tagged Ivan Ssemwanga asking him to come to the rescue of a boy who was in dire need of help and surprisingly, Ivan asked how much and he was told Shs4m.
Ivan asked what does this young boy need? he was told that he needs money for school fees and without wasting time he instructed his manager in Uganda to hand the father of the boy 3m from Ivan and another 1m from King Lawrence.
Ivan also used the opportunity to reveal his Orphanage that will be launched this December in Kayunga.
"By the way, though we all have our weaknesses where by mine is addiction to spending, I always work hard and willing to help where necessary....Me, Lawrence and ED are also opening up an Orphanage school in Kayunga this December."
Ivan Ssemwanga, ED Cheune and King Lawrence are the three tycoons behind the boat cruise that will be held in Munyonyo.
Days after Forbes has just released its top 5 richest Ugandans that include Sudhir Ruparelia, Patrick Bitature, Charles Mbiire, Amirali Kamarli (AK) and Amos Nzeyi, Ivan Ssemwanga has defied that and vowed not to be intimidated.
Since the list is still being worked on, Ivan might find himself on either a lower rank of the current list of rich Ugandans or Forbes will have to come up with another list of Richest Ugandans living Outside Uganda.
Zari's husband Ivan Ssemwanga whose love for expensive cars cannot be equated to anything has added an Audi R8 (4.2) model 2012 to his fleet. Some of the features of this audi include a home link remote transmitter that controls garage doors, gates and lights in your home, has sophisticated hands free communications.
The Audi R8 valued at $114,800 before taxes has a magnetic ride that allows you to customize it to either normal or sports mode while driving and all these resulting into less body movements and improved driving dynamics.
Ivan must have opted for this ride after his Lamborghin lost out to Cheune's Aston Martin during the race to celebrate President Obama's victory that got them arrested. They paid heavily in fines.
Ivan has 15 colleges in South Africa and some of his rides include a Range Rover Sport, Lamborghini, BMWX6, Hummer, BMW, Lexus among others and plans on buying his wife Zari a Rolls Royce after their differences are fully settled.
Diva Iryn Namubiru still can't believe that the man who fell in love with her after hearing her sing in an open-mic bar way back in 1998 and the father to her two sons Eko and Al just grabbed her by the neck a week back.
Iryn who sustained a deep wound on her neck as though it was a scratch from a stray cat plus other swellings on her cheek and lower ear said that: "Just two fingers in the throat can kill."
The couple broke up over four years back and have since then been fighting over their children's custody. It has since been established that its Frank who has the custody of the kids and Iryn is supposed to check on them at certain intervals.
This particular fight was sparked by the fact that Iryn went with the kids on holiday without informing her ex husband so when they came back, Iryn was informing him of their coming back so he could take the kids with him but instead descended on her and thumped her to near death while at a train station in Paris.
The 'Begombeko' star has now been discharged and recuperating from the wounds but most importantly the shock. Iryn has also filed a case of violence in Paris over the latest beating and she says:
One radio station was this morning trying to reach out to Bobi Wine but his phone was returning a busy tone until they gave up. It was later established that he was in Juba though the purpose of the visit was unclear, so they referred the matter to next week.
The communication off his wall indicates that Bobi Wine is in a situation that he himself is not in position to explain. In the message that has left most of his fans worried states that:
"Im being chauffeured to a Juba Police station for a case I have not been explained to fans, friends and family, I pray all this goes down well." Bobi Wine is in final stages of his next album launch that will be held at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds on 16.Nov.2012.
The last time the Ghetto president was close to a similar scenario was when he tried to access the Presidential pavilion at Kololo during the celebrations to mark 50 years of independence.
We are yet to establish what is it he was doing in Juba and why he had to get a free ride to Juba Police. Latest information coming in is that he has been released with no charge.
This was widely expected with Sean Paul doing 'She Doesn't Mind' at Lugogo Cricket Oval coupled with the bad weather, there were more empty chairs at Club Obligato than guests.
It's on record, Bebe Cool's Kamwako launch was well attended but not enough for the concert organiser to recoup his costs something that made Chameleone laugh for close to a week.
Chameleone laughed simply because his Valu Valu launch had more fans than Bebe Cool's Kamwako launch. Chameleone was on the line up of curtain raisers at Lugogo and he was supposed to do three songs but ended up doing eight tracks before relocating to Club Obligato where about 100 people were waiting for him.
Bebe Cool who has been unsettled since then is now cracking his ribs and wondering how his neighbour 'A' could fail to to have a small bar like Club Obligato to full capacity which an upcoming artiste like Chris Evans did.
Bebe wrote: "Neighbour 'A' was humbled to 120 fans. Ondagamu no yasama, ate gakyali mabaga." Meaning that you should not open your mouth again as more is yet to come.
Big Brother StarGame Uganda representative Kyle Duncan Kushaba is nursing a swollen face after being attacked by thugs at the Sean Paul Concert that was held at Lugogo Cricket Oval last night.
Dutty Paul did his thing for over an hour but during that time, thieves were busy doing rounds. Kyle was one guy who was unlucky last night after losing his samsung phone, sustained a swollen face as he tried to stop the thugs who managed to take off with dollars.
Kyle confirmed this on his wall: ''I almost lost my life..thugs noticed me and hit me in the middle of the crowd and took off with my samsung galaxy (S3) and about $1000...my face is swollen."
Now this left some of his fans disturbed as to why he was moving with dollars at such an event and what is it he was going to buy priced in dollars. Kyle would have used those dollars to at least get himself a VVIP slot at the show other than moving freely in the general happiness where the thugs met him.
Kyle with Kijoh Events will be bringing in other Big Brother Starmates like Keagan from South Africa, Seydou from Angola, Nafe and Watti from Malawi at the Freedom City Mall on Entebbe Road end of this month. We hope by then Kyle will be photogenic, quick recovery for now.
Singer Iryn Namubiru Morel has spoken out after being battered by ex hubby last Sunday and she is now on the same page with Zari of denouncing domestic violence.
Commenting from Paris, Iryn wrote on her wall: "No no no noooooooo to domestic violence. Most especially by someone whose life you haven't been sharing for over 4 years. No to death threats. No to domestic violence. One can die in less than a minute."
Apparently, Iryn and hubby separated over four years back but she has tried to keep it a top secret until last Sunday when she nearly met her creator at Gare Du Nord Train Station.
Their case is before Court that is yet to decide on who takes custody of the kids who are currently with the 'Nabulo' singer. Iryn had travelled to Holland for a short holiday with the kids but her ex Frank Morel hadn't known of the trip, instead he thought that Iryn had taken off with the kids and that's why he reacted that way.
In September, Iryn filled two cases of domestic violence against her husband. The first one was on Sept 12 and less than two weeks later, Iryn dashed to report another case.
Morel wants Iryn to be with him and the kids in France but Iryn has her music career that she equally loves and would now rather dump him for good with the beating that has been upgraded to neck squeezing.
Meanwhile, Zari sends out her love to Iryn during the hard times..talk of birds of the same feathers flocking together. Zari has just had her share of a beating and she could be the best person to advise Iryn as of now.
Jamaican pop star Sean Paul will be jetting in today by mid-day ahead of his live performance at Lugogo Cricket Oval tomorrow (Nov, 9). This will be his third time to perform in Uganda.
'Got 2 Love U' is one of his singles on YouTube with over 100m views now if you know what that means, Lugogo will be more than packed tomorrow as fans will want to view the dance hall icon live on stage.
Shaggy and Sean Paul are the only Jamaican artistes who have crossed the 50million mark on YouTube courtesy of their 1990 hit single 'Angel'. Sean Paul's 'She Doesn't Mind' currently stands at 99 million views.
That's just a little bit of what the pop star will be doing at Lugogo Cricket Oval the same venue that will host Nigeria's hottest duo the P-Square on (Dec 21).
South African based Ugandans Ivan Ssemwanga and his cousin Cheune better known by pals as Gauteng's young n rich super stars were yesterday arrested as they took to the streets and started racing their posh rides in celebration of President Barack OBAMA winning a second term in office.
Ivan was cruising his white lamborghini while Cheune was in his Aston Martin before being detected by the speed cameras. The traffic police swung into action and arrested the two who were still shouting Obaaama, Obaama, Obama. We are yet to establish their fate on whether they pay heavily in traffic fines or scrapping their driving licences.
Meanwhile, the two have been busy in the last few days registering hot curvy babes that look good in bikinis for their boat cruise that will be held in Munyonyo on Dec 30. According to insiders, the number of babes so far stands at approximately 80. They need 150 in total.
Eleanor Nansibo and Matthew Nabwiso of the local drama series, The Hostel are parents after Eleanor gave birth to a bouncing baby boy at Paragon hospital on 6.Nov.2012. When it came to giving birth, Dr. Nabwiso err Matthew was right next to her as their baby boy came into the world.
Since then, Eleanor has been so excited and in her words she says: "So much going on so many visitors.. am so happy can't explain the feeling thanx to Paragon hospital team Mat and I are the happiest parents...mwah...thanx for the prayers...!"
As for Matthew its more than joy as the baby even resembles him at least going by the posting on his wall: "Now this is some good stuff going on. Thanks all for yo prayers, the baby is just like Daddy."
In the play, Eleanor who acts as (Hope) had been impregnated by brother John and in real life Eleanor has just given birth leaving some wondering whether its Hope who has given birth or Eleanor.
This is the first Hostel baby and Isaac aka Sober is busy looking out for suitable names.
Top musician and PAM Awards artiste of the year 2011 Iryn Namubiru Morel is nursing serious injuries in a hospital in France after her ex hubby attacked her at a train station in the presence of her kids Al and Eko as they came from Holland.
According to her manager, Thadeus Mubiru he says that: "Songbird Iryn Namubiru has been brutally attacked by her ex-husband Frank Morel at Gare Du Nord Train Station in Paris as she came from a holiday in Holland."
Thadeus went on to confirm that Iryn is admitted in a hospital nursing serious injuries as Frank Morel is in police custody helping with investigations. Iryn has filed cases of violence, assault and death threats to the France authorities.
Meanwhile, the security team at Gare Du Nord Station were quick at stopping Morel from causing more harm to the 'Nkuweeki' star. A rift had appeared in their relationship when she made headlines over the way she was photographed with a certain VIP.
Iryn has been clashing with the Tusker Project Fame former contestant Maureen Kabasita after the latter was demoted and Iryn promoted as the manager of the Entebbe based Water front beach, Fusion Band. This did not go down well with Maureen now that she was so close to Kassami, the Fusion band owner.
This is happening at the time when South African socialites Zari and Ivan are having issues after Zari putting up with a lot of battering from the husband.
As Bad Black is busy serving her sentence and battling with a traffic offence in which she is pleading with the affected family to accept a Shs10m out-of-court settlement, her rival Janet Apuyo is now the new owner of her Munyonyo Bungalow.
Bad Black has lost literally everything like the cars, houses and land among others that she acquired using company funds following her being found guilty of embezzling Shs11bn that was meant for their company that they co-owned with her ex-lover David Greenhalgh.
In one of the court sessions, Janet had come with David Greenhalgh to follow the proceedings and while in the court premises, Janet got a chance to throw all sorts of insults to Bad Black, but the seemingly unbothered Bad Black just laughed it off.
Bad Black was then donning high heels as Janet was putting on very old shoes with laces and a long Kitengi dress. Latest info from Janet Apuyo's camp is that she is fit to burst and in under two months, she will be blessed with David's baby. Janet is now the proud owner of Bad Black's former residence located in Munyonyo.
Meanwhile, Bad Black's breasts have developed a strange disease to which she has hired new lawyers to try and get her bail so that she can go for an operation in Dubai to have the implants removed.
Jose Chameleone is still laughing but that's all he has to do for now after Bebe Cool's Kamwako launch which by 'their' standards was a flop but for Bobi Wine who has a launch in (10) days, he has this to say.
"In the beginning it was all physical, I even knocked the guy down at one point Naye nawakana. Then we decided to organise our launches on the same dates to see who is who...we did it 3 consecutive times Nga Ela tumusinga hands down Ela nawakana.
Then came the battle of Champions..in his own words he said ''Tukilize Bobi Wine Yasinga'' but 12hrs later, he objected. This time, we agreed to set our concerts on different dates but in the same venue to settle this once and for all.
One of us had his concert, and you saw the numbers plus the empty chairs! We are now waiting for 16th November. Same venue, Kyadondo. How is that folks." Those were the words of Bobi Wine.
During Chameleone's Valu Valu launch, Kyadondo was filled to the brim, Bebe Cool tried with his Kamwako launch but could not measure up to Valu Valu, we are now yet to see Bobi Wine with his Tugambire Ku Jennifer.
Bebe Cool held his Kamwako album launch over the weekend which had four sessions; his first songs, Reggae songs, cultural songs and his latest songs that had Kabirinage and Kamwako among others.
The Kyadondo show had about 8,000 tickets sold which by a Ugandan artiste standard was a success though it was not anywhere close to the Valu Valu numbers something that has left Chameleone laughing all the way.
Bebe Cool was still grateful for the big numbers and through his wall thanked the fans that turned up in large numbers. ''Thanks to you all for making my day great n I pray you get home safely. Thanks to Gagamel fans and friends for the great attendance n lets keep the fire burning."
The show was sponsored by Red Pepper, Hema Water and Balam Barugahare who gave an advance payment of Shs40m to Bebe Cool but having failed to recoup his monies, he is not sure of how to pay the remaining Shs20m. Balaam spent close to Shs150m in total but looking at the total proceeds from all the shows combined, he registered a loss.
During the show, Bebe Cool had a session that was dedicated to the kids from Kamuli that he is taking care of. He did a fundraising drive for them and realised about Shs500,000 which was handed over to the kids. Bebe Cool then challenged other artistes to do a similar act.
Some of the fans were left wondering why the kids were not in bed at that time. Bebe Cool was to perform 58 songs but by the time police came in to stop the show which was way past the stopping time, he was left with only two songs.
The Kyadondo show ended at 1:30am. Rain disrupted the Entebbe show while in Mukono about 2,200 tickets were sold.
South African based businessman Ivan Ssemwanga is organizing yet another boat cruise that will be held on 30th December. Two weeks back, Ivan spent over 30million on drinks, food, music and hiring a yacht that saw over 100 babes on board cruising with him as he enjoyed fish and chips.
The number of babes required on board this time has increased from the previous 100 to 150 and they should be aged 20-30yrs. The boat cruise has limited seats for guys as the organisers; Ivan, Cheune and one King Lawrence say they need only 50 smart guys.
They add that the guys allowed on board must be aged between 25-35years. Now much as the boat cruise is free, the 150 babes must be clad in bikinis or hot pants to qualify for the free ride. Its not yet clear how much the guys will be paying but its free for all Ugandans living abroad.
The last boat cruise set off at 4:00pm from Beach Gardens in Ggaba to Portbell, Munyonyo before making a stop over at Beer Gardens in Busoke where all those on board were given a second treat of snacks, chips and fish as the guests danced to music.
The MV Amani Portbell Yacht came back to Ggaba at 7:00pm. This is when the Goodlyfe Crew started performing. Now this boat cruise of December is likely to be a lot better than the previous one because that will be more or less a celebration of a year that has been rocky for Ivan as far as his relationship with Zari is concerned.
After UBC suspending her reality show following the steamy kiss they had on a boat cruise with one top fashionista, Zari has devised other means of living her fabulous lifestyle after taking over Bad Black's space.
We told of how in-laws from all sides held a meeting to reconcile the two parties after both Zari and Ivan had moved on. The meeting that was held at Serena Hotel ended and all those that attended were convinced the couple was set to make up.
The memory of Ivan holding Nickita's boob only makes matters worse. The couple had made up but when Zari recalled the Nickita boob saga, the beating and the suffering she had been through all these years, tried out life without Ivan, she said 'mbe nze ndobye' meaning that she was not going back.
This forced Ivan to come up with an offer of a Rolls Royce if she accepted to come back to his life. A Rolls Royce is estimated at close to a billion shillings before taxes. The problem is that when it comes to rides, Zari has seen it all so you need to try out other tricks and not cars. Zari has a Chrysler, AudiQ7, Range Rover Sport, Merc and occasionally drives Ivan's Lamborghini.
In her latest message, Zari says: "Forgiving and forgetting is the 1st step to healing and moving on. We will remain great parents, business partners, friends and wish the public to respect our space during this time."
It looks like a 'joking subject' but the house is on fire. You all remember when Ivan invited friends for Zari's birthday at Guvnor only to turn out that the birthday gal was down in South Africa.
Now more shocking info just coming in is that once Zari accepts Ivan back to her life(If she says YES), she will not only get a Rolls Royce but their wedding will be held before the year end, just like was the case with their introduction ceremony last year. Watch this Space!
The PAM Awards might not be taking place this year but that has not stopped some of our artistes from not only being nominated but also bringing the awards home.
The 10th edition of the Kisima Awards was held yesterday in Nairobi at KICC Tsavo Ballroom and our very own Chameleone was among the winners.
Chameleone might have lost the BEFFTA award to Juliana but he managed to pull this through when he beat TMK, Professor J, Lady Jaydee and Diamond (all from Tanzania) to get the East African Recognition Award through his Valu-Valu hit.
Celebrating his win, Chameleone dashed to his wall and thanked his fans: "Thanks all my fans, we live to inspire good music not words we have won...strictly music not wolox!!!!"
Others in that category included Jackie Chandiru-'Gold Digger' and a one Dynamiq from South Sudan.
Other Ugandans who were nominated in the Kisima Awards were Keko - 'Make You Dance' a track she did with Madtraxx, Juliana and Alicios 'Mpita Njia' under the Collaboration of the year. This was taken by a track 'Gentleman' which was done by P-Unit and Sauti Sol.
Curvy Desire Luzinda had wished to attend Bebe Cool's Kamwako launch tonight that is being held at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds but going by the damage Hurricane Sandy has caused, she will be unable due to the cancelled flights.
The 'Doze' singer confirmed this on her wall: "Hurricane Sandy has got me stuck in Boston, all flights cancelled am so messed up. My buddy Bebe Cool, I can't make it for your show but wish you all the best."
Desire Luzinda and her fans were a few days back having a ball in Colorado, Denver where the weather is reportedly cool as of this week. Some lads had to travel long distances just to get a feel of the curvy singer.
This got some female fans saying that she looks like a sweet sixteen or better still under fifteen, she reminded them that she is 25 pleaseeeeee!!! lol.
Bukedde's Embutu Ye Mbutikizi was held last Sunday and Nakivubo was filled to the brim with no breathing space or turning space for those that graced the show. The show had the likes of Bebe Cool, Bobi Wine performing for the excited fans.
We earlier told of the Bibuuza saga in which Pr. Yiga went on one radio station and issued a disclaimer on the 'Bibuuza' song saying that the song could no longer be performed at any public function by Hajat Madina, instead it will be performed by Winnie Kayesu.
Much as Hajat Madina tried to disagree with the Pastor, she was no where close to Nakivubo Stadium last Sunday after being lined up as one of the performers during the Embutu Ye Mbutikizi.
The 'Bibuuza' song was in the run for the Song of the year together with 'Tugambire Ku Jenipher' by Bobi Wine, 'Ndiisa Butti' by Bebe Cool, 'Biribabitya' by Pr. Wilson Bugembe among others and the winner was to take home Shs5m.
Hajat Madina started off her music career as back up vocalist in Bebe Cool's Gagamel Crew then crossed to Revival Band which did so much with the 'Bibuuza' hit before quitting.
Pr. Yiga and Nabbi Omukazi of the Revival Band had no objection with her leaving but they made it clear to her that the Bibuuza song was for Revival Band and not Hajat Madina.
Zari is back with the All White Party that will see revellers dressed in white from head to toe and the entry fee will be 30k.
This will be a Champagne and bling packed night. Zari's stores at Garden City are already stocking trendy white outfits, white gold and bling that revellers could buy to fit the dress code for the night.
The party will be held at Guvnor on the 27.Dec.2012. The couple that made up a few days after a bitter split have started off their love journey on a new page and its a Rolls Royce for Zari should she say YES to Ivan's proposal.
Ivan has already proposed in style and If the response from Zari is a YES, then a Rolls Royce will follow at least to compensate for the beating and the bad blood that has been brewing between the two lovers.
She is still thinking about it though. Its highly likely she will say yes and being creme in colour, she could use it during the All White Party at Guvnor next month.
The Moto-Moto star Jose Chameleone has advised fellow artistes not to judge others because the same treatment can be used against them. In a message off his wall, Chameleone says:
"Warning: To all artistes out to judge others' failures and music, wise up, wake up and we will judge you too! Leone Island Music Empire."
Much as the message is to all artistes, music pundits think otherwise as one had this to say. This message is directed at WINE and COOL not even Juliana who beat him in the recently concluded BEFFTA Awards features on that list of 'all artistes' Chameleone is referring to.
Chameleone's warning comes at a time when Bebe Cool had just told one publication of how Chameleone is a bad mannered man and he has no problem saying it. He is always bickering over the smallest of things and I don't see eye-to-eye with him because I cannot keep such friendship. Bebe Said.
Chameleone's 'warning' got a response of Big is Big from one who seemed like a staunch Gagamel fan and now that this is a known Bebe Cool's line and a title to one of his tracks, 'Big Size', Chameleone responded promptly:
Big is Big in your eyes! what about David defeating Goliath with three pebbles...when you ask for words they come in, music they grass." Chameleone concluded as he wished a good week to the island family.
Meanwhile, Bebe Cool's Kamwako launch will be held this coming Friday while Bobi Wine's Tugambire Ku Jennifer will be in two weeks time.
Bebe Cool and the entire Gagamel Crew are busy rehearsing two days to the Kamwako Album launch. Speaking to the mighty red one, Bebe Cool said that he won't have any curtain raisers as all those to perform are signed to the Gagamel Crew (GC).
Unlike other artistes, Bebe Cool will hit the stage as early as 8:30am doing his 58 best songs that will include Bogolako, Kabirinage, Ndiisa Butti and Kasepiki among others. He will leave the stage at 1:00am marking the end of the show.
Beef with Bobi and Chameleone
Interestingly, no interview with Bebe leaves out the never ending beef with Chameleone and Bobi Wine, he used the platform once again to highlight their issues. Bebe Cool said that he was better off dealing with Bobi Wine because he publically shows it that he hates him than dealing with Chameleone who smiles while they are together and does something unbelievable to him elsewhere.
I Made these Boys
Bebe maintains he is the reason these 'boys' are what they are. He told Red Pepper that: "You see I mentored these boys. Chameleone used to ride a boda boda and he would take me back home after my performances at the then club Ecstasy.."
Mentors Bobi Wine
Bebe Cool went to Nairobi and on coming back he worked with Bobi Wine's elder brother Eddie Yawe, who requested him to mentor Bobi Wine. They together started Fire Base Crew and he now wonders why they disrespect him.
The star who was shot in the legs and the main reason he says has affected the completion of his house as he had was busy paying for his treatment in the USA now plans to finish the family house by end of next year.
That is not all, Bebe says that he will complete apartments too as they are to supplement her income over and above the confectionary shop which will be combined with a spa and beauty salon.
Bebe Cool is now appealing to fans to come in large numbers similar to those that were witnessed at the Embuutu Ye Embutukizi.
Singer Cindy Sanyu has just premiered her latest video 'Love' on UBC and NTV's Expozed and in the video, it's a new look, new inspiration, new music but the same old Cindy.
Cindy enjoyed her long weekend with a number of activities that included among others attending a friend's wedding, had a performance at Kampala International University. The 'Mbikooye' star was so busy to the extent that she had to cancel some of the programs like the brothers birthday party for a boat cruise.
Then came that time on the boat when the strippers started doing those things that most men dream about and that most wives won't do. The rule with strippers is less talk and more action, so they got to the job of gyrating on any poles they came across leaving some revellers sexcited.
The exotic dancers hit the boat floor shortly after Cindy's performance. According to her, all was well but when the gals started flashing their kandahars, this is when she switched off."...They had strippers, real strippers. No offense but when they took off all their clothes and started flashing their ....., that was just disgusting. I wanna erase that memory." Cindy tweeted.
Most of her male fans were instead wondering how they could land such an opportunity that Cindy wished could be erased from her memory. Boat cruises are now the in thing in Kampala. Tonix had one before his Tukyekole concert, Ivan treated his fans to a boat cruise that had all tribes of booze flowing endlessly.
The 2008 PAM Awards artiste of the year Juliana Kanyomozi has yet again added another award onto her long list of awards with the latest being Best International Afrobeat Act of the Black Entertainment Film Fashion Television and Art (BEFFTA), 2012.
The fourth annual version of the awards was held on Saturday the 27-Oct-2012 at The Hippodrome, North End Road, Golders Green in London. The guests were smartly dressed in their black tuxedos, black suits with the ladies maintaining the evening gowns making the ceremony glamorous.
Juliana went ahead to celebrate her joy on her wall thus: "Hey family, we won the BEFFTA award yessss!. Thank you for all the support u showed thru your votes. I couldn't have done it without you. Uganda, East Africa, You did it.."
The 'Iam Ugandan' star acknowledged that the competition was tight but that did not stop her from beating home boy Jose Chameleone and other big name artistes like Fally Ipupa, Nameless and D Banj among others
The credit crunch is still biting to the extent that even tycoons are chocking. The latest information we are getting indicates that another tycoon could join the long list of fake tycoons that include Mike Ezra, Meddie Ssentongo, and Bad Black among others.
Richard Nalima borrowed Shs30m in October 2011 from a lady only identified as Juliet and promised to pay back with interest of Shs5m by December 2011 after leaving her with a Gayaza land title as collateral security.
The last day for the loan period passed and Nalima had not made good his promise. This prompted Juliet to check with the land title offices but on checking, it turned out that the title was in different names.
The Police spokesperson Idd Senkumbi confirmed that Nalima had been arrested. The tycoon made a statement after Juliet reported the matter to police vide case number CR/E/05/2012.
The tycoon had actually stopped driving his posh car from the moment he learnt that he was a wanted man. On Tuesday, the Tycoon was being driven around Kampala Road in a tinted BMW, police swung into action after a tip off and arrested him.
Nalima managed to raise 5million from fellow tycoon Bosco Ntaganda who also spoke to the Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander Andrew Felix Kaweesi to secure his release. Bosco and Juliet were yesterday evening working out ways of solving the balance in two installments.
NALIMA which is also the number plate to his Chrysler is the Chairman of young tycoons under their umbrella organisation ''Twagalane'' that is affiliated to ''Kwagalana''
Following a family meeting held at Serena Hotel last Monday, the celebrity couple that had taken a break four months back is now on kissing terms and back together leaving basketball player Isaac and soupy Nickita heart broken.
It's not clear if the reasons that led to the break up have been fully resolved but what we know for now is that after the Monday meeting with in-laws from both parties, Ivan and Zari agreed to work things out and their first night together was yesterday in South Africa.
The couple was all over each other like new lovers who had just met on a night out. Zari tweeted that: "Just touched SA base oba UG yandoga, miss it mob already but miss ma kids more so no regrets....."
The news of the break-up was a shocker to many who had known this couple for the last 12 years and bearing in mind that Ivan had spent over a billion shillings on their introduction ceremony in Munyonyo last year, it was shocking to many.
During the short break, Isaac Lugudde was assuming Ivan's shoes by hobnobbing with Zari while Ivan hooked a one Nickita whose skin complexion was exactly like that of Zari, meaning that much as she was gone, he still needed her in his life.
Ivan has always been a laid back person but when Zari's picture with Lugudde leaked, he came out of his shell and started spending like there was no tomorrow. This was money that he could have otherwise been spending on Zari but because of the Lugudde issue, he decided to give it out in a 'KiNigerian' style.
For now Nickita can officially step aside as a side dish as the couple fastens their seat belts for bumpy rides.
South African based Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan will early next year start her own magazine after getting a few tips from best female friend Sylvia Owori of the collapsed African Woman Magazine.
This is after opening up two fashion shops, Zari Jewels and The Renaissance Man located at Garden City basement. Now the latest info coming in is that 'The Boss Lady' is setting up a publishing empire through her magazine that will feature fashion trends, beauty and make-up tips among others.
With the first issue expected to hit the news stands in Feb 2013, Zari is in the country soliciting for the best team that will see Ugandans witness another glossy magazine like African Woman.
Zari split with hubby Ivan Ssemwanga four months back and since then, the socialite has been busy opening up businesses under her name and paying less attention to the projects they started as a couple. Zari thinks of her shops more than the Apollo Kaggwa hotel which is under construction.
Meanwhile, Ivan Ssemwanga has given his new catch Nickita his BMW personalized with (IVAN8) plates and he is currently on the lookout for a house for his beau..!
The split of socialite Zari and her hubby Ivan Ssemwanga has seen many benefit from the confusion starting with those who were bought air tickets to come and watch the Ug vs ZAM match at Namboole, Uganda Cranes got at least Shs15m and now Bukedde fans who won't pay a penny after Ivan Ssemwanga paid for them.
One thousand fans of Bukedde FM, a radio station better known as a Embuutikizi have won free tickets to the popular show dubbed 'Embuutu Ye Embtukizi' after tycoon Ivan Semwanga paid for them Shs5m.
The show organised by New Vision will be held on the 28-Oct-2012 at Nakivubo Stadium though this time, revellers will be deciding on the song of the year by sending text messages to 8338 after typing: Embuutu_song_yo name. The winner will walk away with Shs5m.
The songs in the run for the Song of the year include 'Tugambire Ku Jenipher' by Bobi Wine, 'Ndiisa Butti' by Bebe Cool, 'Biribabitya' by Pr. Wilson Bugembe. Others include 'Oli Wange' by Rema and 'Bibuuza' by Hajat Madina.
Meanwhile, we are watching that space as far as Hajat Madina and the 'Bibuuza' song are concerned. Last week, Pr. Yiga made it clear that she is not supposed to perform the Bibuuza song at any function, She appeared on the very radio show Pr. Yiga was previously and told all and sundry that the song is hers and also did an acapella in support of her version regarding the song.
City model Doreen Kabareebe has completed a three year modeling course with flying colours from Latif Academy Talent School. Doreen who could not hide her excitement said: "Happy to graduate after the 3yr modeling course as the best model, thanx Latif.''
Doreen's father tried very much to desist her from the social life but all in vain as the daughter had chosen modeling. Doreen has participated in several beauty pageants including Miss Uganda and the Miss All Central University beauty pageant.
Early this year, model Doreen Kabareebe was involved in a boda-boda accident as she rushed for lectures at Nkumba University, so her pals were forced to ask her if she had abandoned that course for modeling, the city model said that she will be graduating in October. Now with this October coming to an end, chances are she was referring to Oct next year.
Doreen is still fresh in our minds after her butt went on full display during the Sisqo flopped show. She told whoever cared to listen that she was backstage dressing when that happened but most fashion experts and analysts did not buy the explanation.
Doreen has made a name for herself and now she is putting her CV together to vie for a political post come 2016.
The kids may be a few years old but showing all signs of emulating their dad in every way.
Star singer Jose Chameleone who has been busy lately with his international tours shared a pic of his family off his wall to which he says; ''Generation Next, The Mayanja's Mama, Alba, Alfa and Abba love you all, yours DOCTOR"
A fan commented: "This is it..Keep clean Jose this is more than money!!!! The star replied to him that yeah far more than money. The Moto-Moto star has four kids in total. Chameleone had a steamy relationship with Belgian Greant Osea aka Dorotia resulting in their baby Ayla Mayanja but the pair later split.
Inset is Chameleone, Dorotia and Ayla during one of his trips to Brussels. Chameleone's naming order has been any name that starts with A, Bebe Cool follows the alphabet order and he is currently at C with Caysan as the latest addition.
When it comes to the Omubanda Wa Kabaka, Bobi Wine also the Ghetto Gladiator who recently missed sharing the presidential pavilion with Presidents at the Kololo Independence grounds, his kids are named after cities like Kampala and Nairobi.
Through his latest track, 'Tugambire Ku Jenniffer', he is realizing a new set of fans who include tycoons whose structures have been demolished.
What a boob! Tycoon Ssemwanga was caught in a pose similar to that of his ex Zari and new lover Isaac Lugudde.
Nickita is Ivan's new lover
Basketballer Isaac Lugudde is hobnobbing with Socialite Zari.
Ardent followers of soaps should by now be comparing scenes in their favourite soap operas after the Ivan-Zari split which is now turning out to be dramatic. First it was the leaked photo of Isaac and Zari but in a manner that left many wondering how one could rest his arm on a woman's boob who is not his wife and yet a mother of three.
It was not long before Ivan Ssemwanga otherwise Zari's ex with new catch only identified as Nickita were smoked out from Serena Hotel. Photos to that effect are featuring on the front page of our gallery.
What is disturbing though is the picture of Ivan holding Nickita's boob and azz as he spoke on his cell phone. Could this be in retaliation to that of Isaac holding Zari's boob!
Meanwhile, in one of Zari's latest posts, it's not clear whether it's aimed at Isaac or Ivan but the message is certainly for one of them. "Man up for ur actions n stop bullshitin' n trashin' me#Coward! Real men stand up for their actions n take blame as it only shapes em n turns em into better species#real talk."

As you are busy getting to terms with the Zari-Lugudde issue snoops have landed on exclusive pictures of tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga and his new catch only identified as Nickita.
The couple was spotted at Serena Hotel with Nickita showing some of her hot pics to Ivan off her smartphone and in another, the couple was acting like they were on honeymoon with Ivan gently feeling Nickita's behind.
Trust Ivan, Nickita is as light as Zari and their lower legs are more or less the same. Not much is known about Nickita for now but she is certainly more than ready to kick off with the steamy romps with the tycoon.
Isaac on the other hand is busy pouring out his heart for the boss lady. He confirmed to some of his close pals that he has 'The Boss Lady' tattoo around his ribs. The Boss Lady is a reality TV show by Zari on UBC.
Latest info coming through of course from insiders indicates that trouble stems from the Shs190m Zari wired to Lugudde at the robbery Forex Bureau. The couple is set to share the property that is listed in the couple's names as a requirement by law in South Africa.
Zari is in the country after jetting in on Wednesday to oversee operations at her two stores, Zari Jewels and The Renaissance Man located at the Garden City basement.
The match between the Uganda Cranes and Zambia's Chipolopolo saw one fan who acted out of the ordinary bearing in mind that the last time we had seen such actions was when the fake tycoon Mike Ezra was around.
Ivan Ssemwanga who is now better known as the estranged husband to Zari gave the Uganda Cranes Shs10m in cash and promised Shs5m for all the goals scored. This kind of motivation saw the Uganda Cranes beat the African Champions in the 90 minutes before crossing to a penalty shoot-out. This is when Uganda succumbed to Chipolopolo but after putting up a spirited fight.
Ivan paid over Shs2m to charter a helicopter that airlifted him to Namboole for the Uganda VS Zambia match, sponsored 10 fans with all expenses from South Africa to Uganda to watch the game live at Mandela National Stadium (Namboole).
Ivan has been keeping a low profile but from the time he fell out with his wife Zari, he is determined to see her back at all costs and spending is one of the tricks he is using but Kampala babes are now all over him that he is lost for choice . The question is Who is Ivan Ssemwanga?
Ivan Ssemwanga went down South in 2002 with the help of his cousin Kyeyune aka Cheune who is on the record for loving posh rides and settled in an area with so many Sangoma's. He must have gotten overwhelmed with the seer business that he was left with no choice but to join them. He is referred to as Shaba Wa Shaba 9 while with his peers in South Africa.
On realizing the success of his business, he decided to venture into education services. Ivan set up Brooklyn Colleges which has 6 branches spread across Durban, Pretoria and Jo'Burg specializing in IT, Mining and Policing services among others.
In Uganda, he is constructing a hotel on Sir Apollo Kagwa, has several houses in Bunga, Munyonyo, Mutungo and unconfirmed reports have it that a hotel in Mukono is in the offing. A combination of all those projects leaves him with over Shs700m in profits per month.
He has two posh houses in Sandton and Pretoria, spent over a billion on his introduction ceremony to Zari last year but mid this year, Zari quit her marital home under the guise of domestic violence.
Bebe Cool's wife Zuena Kirema Ssali has added yet another item on her CV and that is none other than baking cakes for weddings, birthday parties, baptism and so on. This is in addition to being a musician and a wife to Big Size which means preparing for the Kamwako launch early next month.
In a message off her wall this Wednesday; "Zuena Pastries Now Open", she has already received orders for birthday cakes slated for next month. While responding to one who was asking how much the cakes cost, Zuena said that it depends on the size.
"They have different shapes and sizes, so they vary, we can meet and I show you the pics so you choose from there." Zuena Cool told a customer who expressed interest in cakes made by her.
A month back she told us how the 4-bedroomed house in Kigoowa will be ready for tenants to occupy so if not finalized by now, the works at the site should be in the final stages.
Talk of the power of facebook. This is coming at the time when Bebe Cool is celebrating over 60,000 fans on facebook and he's hoping to make 100,000 in another two months. We only wonder how that works out if its taken three years to make 60,000 fans how do you add 40,000 in two months.
No Doubt Bebe Cool beats all the Ugandans in the range of 5-figure facebook followers trailed by Juliana at 43,945. In his message to celebrate the 60k facebook likes, he said that: "We are the biggest in East Africa, if not East and Central..." and we are saying that just next door, Wahu Kagwi, a Kenyan artiste and wife to David Mathege aka Nameless has 74,456 facebook likes helllo...!
We recently told of how Bebe Cool and Bobi Wine had set their album launches on different dates for the first time in three years. The dates for Bebe Cool's Kamwako launch are still set to take place on the same dates and venues.
Bobi Wine has now come up with a new date and location and this time he says its now official implying that their won't be any more changes. Bobi Wine confirmed this in a message off his official wall.
"Now it is official, 16th November at Lugogo Rugby Grounds, 17th Satellite Beach Mukono and Sunday 18th at One Love Beach, Busabala....We shall be in a Concert dubbed Tugambire Ku Jenniffer. It's gonna be extra ordinary."
What is clear is the date but with a bit of mix up between Kyadondo on his poster and Lugogo in his facebook post but that's no big deal as they are more or less in the same walkable distance.
Last year, the 'Matyansi Butyampa' Concert and the 'Minzani' Concert were held on the same day making it the fourth in a row of concerts between these two that were held on the same dates that include: (Agenze Vs Carolina), (Bogolaako Vs Wesontinge) and (Kasepiki Vs Kataala).
It's important to note that this trend has changed after the battle of champions was held between the two artistes.
The 'Nina Omwami' and 'Doze' Star Desire Luzinda had no kind words for a one Krest Lear from Tanzania who made allegations of Desire speaking ill of Juliana at a certain radio station in Tanzania.
Krest Lear made a posting on Desire's wall that: "U spoke all the nonsense about Juliana Kanyomozi...Beta fcuk off with Juliana. Jst kno ya a loser. We gotten everything u said when u went to Tanzania, bt plz Juliana can never copy ya styl!"
Now this did not go down well with the curvy singer who made this post in response to the allegations: "Someone by the name Krest Lear whatever that means, you're trying hard to create a rumour n some sort of beef about me and Juliana but am not a musician for beef n I haven't stepped foot in TZ, so find your level...."
The motive behind this is not clear though closely associated with drumming up support for a certain radio station in Tanzania. One of Desire's fans was over heard asking how one could appear on a radio station in a country they have never stepped foot?
Unless when Krest Lear made the allegations on hearing a voice that seemed like our star, Desire Luzinda. Desire and Juliana get along and were recently in Philadelphia, US during the UNAA 2012 Convention.
Tattoos are a sure way of expressing your sexuality and this is exactly this famous 'Club Silk' couple did in celebration of their wedding anniversary.
It reminds us of Barbie who put an enormous tattoo of Bobi Wine on her back, as a gift for loving her, Bobi Wine reciprocated with a relatively small tattoo of Barbie on his chest. Now this couple which normally hangs out at Club Silk on all theme nights has taken their love to another level.
This couple has been together for some time but you can easily confuse their romance can easily be confused for that initial romantic stage.
The man who is always holding his lover intimately and caressing her as they enjoy each other's company wanted something on [their] bodies that could seal their love and at least scare off all those who had intentions of coming between them.
The gal put her lover's face on her upper thigh. In this way she can cover it or show it off depending on the mood. The man on the other hand put the gal's face on his right hand arm. This comes a day after Zari's new catch Isaac revealed to whoever cared to know how he has 'The Boss Lady' tattoo on his ribs.
Snoops tried looking out for that tattoo at the fitness center where he was but the guy''s body is full of tattoos, you have to be a babe to carry out an audit of all the tattoos to ascertain if the TBL tattoo exists or not?
Big Brother Africa's small princess Janette Lutaaya who represented Uganda in the previous version of the reality TV show together with Kyle will be making her way to Kenya in three days time.
During the first weeks in the Big Brother house where she kept her self busy with Malonza from Kenya, she was asked what she missed most from home and she told Biggie that she misses Shisha.
Jannette added that if there was a way Biggie could avail her shisha in the house, she could give viewers all over Africa a run for their money. Biggie simply told her that he will look into it.
Now Jannette is contemplating on going to Kenya on (Oct 18) and on her to do list, Malonza comes number one though she has been warned to pack enough warm clothing as its a bit cold and rainy at this time of the month.
Professional basketball player Isaac Lugudde aka LK4 has come out to throw some light on his relationship with South African based Ugandan socialite, Zari.
Zari being a loaded woman, close pals to the basketball player were drawing conclusions that he was in it for money, but he thinks otherwise.
"First, let's get this as a fundamental understanding: money or gain of material wealth, can never bring u happiness or love. Me using her, well, no, not even close. I'm not from Uganda, as y'all know, I was born and raised in USA, I made news when I arrived to Uganda with my brother, Mike Ezra, as y'all know him...."
When he revealed how close he was to Mike Ezra, many just concluded that Zari was in for a raw deal. interestingly, Zari's Ex is behaving just like Mike Ezra of late.
Isaac is faced with robbery charges of Shs100m from a forex bureau after a suspect in the case was got with a (facebook) picture of him but he says Ivan is behind all this. "Ivan is trying everything he can to put me away" Isaac noted on his wall regarding the robbery case.
One of his followers on facebook was forced to ask him how he could rest his arm like that on a married woman, his response just left many perplexed. "Have u ever heard the saying "one man's trash, is another man's treasure'' Well I guess that says it all."
He crowns it all by saying: I have a tattoo on my rib that says ''The Boss Lady'' and adds a quote from the bible, Gen 2:18 ("It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him." )
Isaac and the wife divorced so its as though he is confirming that Zari is a perfect helper for him. Meanwhile, Zari who confirms she is stressed a little bit over the matter but only has three men to worry about and those are her three little kids.
We are all just watching this space to see where all this ends up. Meanwhile, It should be recalled that early this year, there was a scuffle in the Club Silk washrooms between Sue Ochola and Zari and now we are wondering, did it have anything to do with the basketball player? watch this space!
Uganda's finest and Africa's number one as declared by Konshens had a splendid performance last Saturday in Stockholm, Sweden as they celebrated Uganda's 50 years of Independence.
Chameleone's grabber statement is: 'Leone Island Tugende Tukole' in which he encourages members of his Leone Island Crew to be hard working. This can be seen from the sweat on his swanky purple shirt.
The fans in Sweden could just not get enough of the 'Valu Valu' hit which was one of those tracks that made Jamaican dance-hall star Konshens to declare him Africa's number one. The two recorded a duet to seal this.
Chameleone's music appeals to all. This did not leave out the Swedish who were seen wearing out their dancing shoes as Chameleone did his thing.
"Thanks to all my fans in Stockholm! 2gether we made it a show on record...Moto Moto Leero." Jose Chameleone was joined by the grand pa of Uganda music Ragga Dee and King Michael.
Photos of Zari and her new found love have leaked.
A photo of Zari and basket ball star Isaac Lugudde in a lovey dovey pose is buzzing on social media networks. Zari a mother of three separated with hubby Ivan Ssemwanga four months back after a fight in London.
Socialite Zari is now determined to move on as seen from the above pic at a certain top hang out with the couple in a Public Display of Affection (PDA). Many people were so surprised about the developments and this is what she had to say:
"What's so unbelievable? U wanted him single he is so? U should b happy...so don't sweat it. word!" Isaac was dumped by his wife recently and with the cracks in Zari's affair, the timing could just be right.
On the other hand, Ivan's lifestyle has totally changed and its tending to that of Mike Ezra. Ivan has always been loaded but splashing his dime on expensive rides, holidays and partying.
Just before the Uganda cranes match against Zambia's Chipolopolo, he donated Shs10m, he is yet to add another 5m for the goal that Geoffrey Massa scored, made a grand entrance at Namboole in a chopper before his customised hummer (IVAN9) drove him to the gates.
Its still puzzling many how things are failing to work out between these two after 12 years, 3 kids and not forgeting the money coupled with the lavish introduction ceremony that was held at the end of last year.

In 2007, sports philanthropist and Uganda Cranes fan Mike Ezra came with a chopper at Namboole to watch the game between Uganda Cranes and Nigeria. On winning, he gave them millions of shillings.
This is exactly what Zari's ex Ivan Ssemwanga did. He was dropped by a blue chopper into a hummer that brought him to the gates with his 'fans' cheering him on.
Earlier on Ivan had donated Shs10m to the Uganda Cranes and promised Shs5m for every goal scored. This means that with Geoffrey Massa's goal in the first half, this will be an additional Shs5m.
It could have been even better had the Uganda Cranes taken on the African Champions team Chipolopolo who won by 9 goals to 8 in a penalty shoot-out. Ivan is trying to assume Mike Ezra's position just as Zari took over Bad Black's social scene.
Meanwhile, he sponsored 10 fans from South Africa with return Air tickets just to come and watch the Uganda VS Zambia match in Namboole.
The first half of the game is in favor of Uganda Cranes after a goal that was scored by Geoffrey Massa in under 30 minutes of the 2013 AFCON qualifier game.
Uganda is leading by one goal as the mood by the Zambians at Namboole is certainly not a good one as they trail behind Uganda. If Zambia scores in the second half and Uganda does not, they will qualify for the AFCON and should Uganda score the second goal and Zambia does not score at all, the Uganda will have qualified. A draw will mean a penalty shoot out to determine the winner.
Vuvuzela's are blowing all over Namboole and all over Kampala while the 'bullets' or the Chipolopolo remain silent waiting for the second half. The live coverage of the match was made possible by President Museveni.
The Prime Minister Hon Amama Mbabazi was seen very excited after the goal that was taken in by Geoffrey Massa. The second half will be kicking off shortly as Uganda looks for a second goal because even a draw for Uganda Cranes does not cout it for Uganda, We Go....!
Pastor Yiga of the Revival Church has come out spilling the secrets behind the Bibuuza song by Hajat Nambozze Madina Kansiime.
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.
The 'Walilowelela' singer and Zambia's Big Brother Africa representative Miriam Mukape aka Mampi is in the country to cheer up her National football team the Chipolopolo who will be playing the Uganda Cranes later in the day.
Mampi tweeted that she loves Uganda but for now it's Chipolopolo. "Uganda here I come,,,love u Uganda but its team chipolopolo all the way!!!!!" Mampi was the first VIP to be evicted from the Big Brother Africa house.
The Uganda Cranes are more than prepared to take this game that determines which team qualifies for the 2013 AFCON finals that will be held in South Africa.
Mampi will be at Club Rouge after the match between Uganda and Zambia.
Just as we told you that Chameleone was having issues with a Norwegian based promoter for failing to perform over a visa related problem, the 'Kamwako' singer Bebe Cool has been forced to cancel four Concerts in Australia over a delay in having his visa processed.
According to a communication from Bebe Cool's official wall: "I would like to apologize to all my fans in Australia for the inconvenience brought by the cancellation of the 4 concerts as had been scheduled.
This has been due to a delay in processing of the visas. The new dates will be communicated as soon as I'm cleared. The shows will be there in December, Long live Gagamel."
Bebe Cool adds that the application has taken more than a month and they've still not got a response from the visa authorities. This did not go down well with one of the fans Dovelyn Okello who had bought over 10 VIP tickets.
"Wow, now that whats up... I bought 11 VIP tickets to see Bebe Cool but now a heart broken...but praying that everything goes well with the visa process..We're hungry for you King of the Jungle."
In August, Bebe Cool cancelled shows in the US after doctors asked him to scale down on his travel activities.
Meanwhile, November 2,3 and 4, 2012 is booked for his Kamwako album launch at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds, Satellite Beach Mukono and Entebbe Resort Beach respectively.
A few days to the Golden Jubilee celebrations, the Tusker Project Fame 2 Winner Esther Nabaasa had sued Richard Kaweesa for copyright infringement. Court had imposed an injunction on the Yoga-Yoga song to the time when the two parties would resolve their differences.
By the time of independence, the affected parties had already held a press conference to clear the Yoga-Yoga mess that threatened the smooth running of the Golden Jubilee celebrations.
Details of what transpired in the meeting that brought the matter to rest have leaked. Esther was promised Shs500m in compensation in a meeting at State House in Nakasero which was brokered by his excellency.
Esther dashed to her wall to express how happy she was with the developments. "The Yoga Yoga Conflict resolved at last. Never be afraid to stand up for yourself and for what is right and true. One can never put a price on truth and integrity, and we must strive to preserve that always...."
Esther performed the Yoga-Yoga song on independence day much as it was stopped half-way that did not matter that much to her looking at what was in the pipeline.
Star singer Jose Chameleone is at war with a Norwegian promoter who has incurred losses after running ads plus several arrangements ahead of a Chameleone Concert which will now not take place after the Moto-Moto star failed to get a visa.
Apparently, Chameleone is attributing the problem to the promoter and in his wall post he says: "I hate promoters like the one in Norway who fails to get me a visa and then he calls me a thief upon his own failure."
One Hamilton Milton responded to the music heavy weight saying: "It is you and your crew to apply and get a visa yourselves and the promoter can give you airtickets and take care of your accommodation."
He adds that: "How I wish you can be humble enough to apologize to the Norwegians and the Ugandan community in Bergen and Oslo." Chameleone on the other hand is not taking responsibility for any of this and he says that the two parties have a contract and as far as he is concerned, he has not breached anything contained therein.
The promoters claim that they gave Chameleone the invitation letter way back in May 2012 but he only presented it to the visa authorities a week back with Papa Cidy and AK47 names only. They have now vowed to block the singers future performances in Norway.
The 'Itaano' star Allan Toniks is organizing a boat cruise on the same day Zambia will be playing the with the Uganda Cranes at Namboole Stadium.
The 'Tukyekole Boat Cruise' is named after his hit track 'Tugende Tukyekole' which can be loosely translated as Let's Go and Sort Ourselves. Now whatever it is that has to be sorted can only be understood by those who will be on the boat cruise this Saturday.
The Beera Nange singer warns that ''Whatever happens on the boat stays on the boat, no cameras except may be yo phones." DJ Boby will be playing your favorite hits. We all remember the Zari Boat Cruise and how one thing led to the other with Sylvia and Zari deep kissing on the boat cruise.
The charge is 50,000 per person. The boat will depart from KK Beach in Gaba at exactly 1pm. Sexy models will be serving the Tukyekole cocktails on board.
The Golden Jubilee Celebrations were held yesterday with several African Heads of State gracing the occasion.
Several artistes like Juliana, Jackie Chandiru, Pastor Wilson Bugembe entertained guests during the 50th Independence Anniversary celebrations. Interestingly, Lady Mariam with her 2008 'Tindatiine' hit was given a platform.
Esther Nabaasa and her team took their positions to perform the official jubilee song but but seconds after Esther had passed the mic to Ruyonga for the rap version of the Yoga Yoga song, they were asked to quickly leave the stage.
The program must have been running behind schedule bearing in mind that after the 'Yoga-Yoga' song, the President took to the podium to give his Golden Jubilee keynote address and by that time, some Presidents had actually left.
Richard Kaweesa who has been having issues with Esther over who owns what percentage of the proceeds from the song is now disturbed with how the official song could be cut half way and the Queen's official song sang twice.
Kaweesa wrote: "I was disturbed in my spirit as to why the African Children's Choir sang the Queen's official Jubilee song TWICE at the Uganda celebrations at Kololo yesterday. Then came in our Official Jubilee song 'Yoga-Yoga' which was cut half-way."
Juliana Kanyomozi one of the artistes who performed chipped in: "It was not only Yoga Yoga that was cut short. My I AM UGANDAN performance was also cut short because apparently a guest was arriving and they had to welcome them, can you imagine! I was only allowed to continue after that.."
South African based businessman Cheune whose claim to fame is by cruising expensive rides has added an Aston Martin estimated at Shs350m to his fleet. Cheune is expected to hit Kampala bumpy roads with the silver British manufactured ride this December.

Meanwhile, his right hand man Ivan Ssemwanga also from South Africa has come up with a cash prize that will motivate the Uganda Cranes players in their match against Zambia this Saturday.
Ivan who is already in the country will hold a press briefing on Wednesday (Oct 10) at FUFA offices at 9:45am. During the the press briefing, Ivan says he will give a cash prize of 10m to the Uganda Cranes and also added Shs5m for each goal scored.
Ivan has already bought 30 tickets for the Zambia VS Uganda game this Saturday, October 13, 2012.
Update: Ivan has honoured his pledge of Shs10m to the Uganda Cranes. The money was passed on to FUFA through his manager. He is yet to come to the country ahead of the match on Saturday.
As Uganda was celebrating 50 years of independence at the Kololo grounds, several heads of state from over 15 countries were in attendance. These included Kenya's President Mwai Kibaki, Rwanda's Paul Kagame, Salva Kiir from South Sudan, Pierre Nkuruziza from Burundi and Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe among others.
Other dignitaries included the Duke of Kent, Prince Edward who represented the Queen of England, His Royal Highness the Aga Khan. The President of Uganda who was also the host arrived a few minutes past eleven in his black Mercedes Benz Limousine.
There was lots of entertainment from various artistes like Pastor Wilson Bugembe, Juliana Kanyomozi, Jackie Chandiru. The Golden Jubilee anthem Yoga Yoga Uganda was played just before President Museveni took to the podium to give his Golden Jubilee keynote address.
The celebrations went on smoothly though rain disrupted the event. "The President told his guests that we cannot obstruct God's plans." Helicopters and Fighter jets were flying over the Kololo Independence grounds entertaining thousands of guests that turned up for the Golden Jubilee celebrations.
Like all other events, there is always a funny bit to it. The Ghetto President, Bobi Wine, also the Omubanda Wa Kabaka walked in with a swagg as usual trying to make his way to the Presidential pavilion followed by some Fire Base Crew members.
Security moved in swiftly to end a situation some plain clothes operatives were terming as abnormal. Bobi Wine assured them of how he was paid to come and attend unlike other Presidents who were given cards.
Jamaican Dance-Hall star Garfield Spence aka Konshens brought Kampala on its knees at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds last Friday.
Unlike the Demarco and Sisqo shows that flopped, the Konshens Live Golden Jubilee Concert that was sponsored by Blue Cube, Coca Cola, XFM, The Kampala Sun, Pinnacle Security Ltd and Urban TV was a success.
By 5:00pm, revellers had started taking up strategic positions just to get a feel of their Jamaican star whose music appeals to many Ugandans. Jose Chameleone, Swangz Avenue singers, Don MC, Young Mulo among others did perform.
Bebe Cool chose to just sit back and watch the show in the company of his wife Zuena as he prepares for his album launch next month. At exactly 11:00pm, the gal a bubble star hit the stage sending simply dressed gals wild.
Konshens started off with most of his popular songs that included 'Forward', 'No Retreat No Surrender', 'Dag Gal', and Simple Song before going for a break. He returned with a bang doing 'Gal a Bubble' that was done twice due to public demand.
The show was generally a success though with a few short-comings. Some people watched the show from out and yet had bought tickets, the VIP section was more like the general happiness area.
The success of the show was strongly attributed to Konshen's looks and his music that appeals to the majority of the youth. Konshens thanked the Ugandan fans for the much love that they showed him,
"Uganda family big up and happy 50th. Last night was epic... I still haven't slept. Thanx 4 da luv." Meanwhile, trust Jose Chameleone, he recorded a song with Konshens as part of the celebrations to mark Uganda's independence.

The parties involved in the composing and producing the official Uganda Jubilee song 'Yoga Yoga Uganda' have been at logger heads over who takes what share of the proceeds from the song.
The Yoga Yoga song was launched but shortly after, Estar was over heard expressing her dissatisfaction with the way she was being side lined after doing so much in composing what has now become the official Jubilee song.
Kaweesa tried to respond to the issue informally but to Estar, this was more like speaking in parables. Knowing that time was of essence here with the count down to the big day that will see Uganda mark 50 years of independence, Esther Nabaasa filed a suit regarding the ownership of the song.
Court stopped the song from playing to that time when the rights issue was sorted. On Friday (Oct 5, 2012), the affected parties had some how gotten a way around it. The CEO of Spirit Africa Ltd, Richard Kaweesa and the TPF2 Winner Esther Nabaasa aka Estar held a press conference at the Media Centre regarding the Yoga Yoga dispute.
In a statement released on Friday, it was agreed that: "In a spirit of reconciliation, we have resolved the Yoga Yoga copyright misunderstanding...The Spirit of Africa went ahead to apologize for the communication gap to other authors of Yoga Yoga Uganda."
Esther Confirms Conflict is Over
Esther made a post on her wall regarding the Yoga Yoga misunderstanding:
"The Yoga Yoga conflict resolved at last. Never be afraid to stand up for yourself and for what is right and true. One can never put a price on truth and integrity, and we must strive to preserve that always.
And when someone wrongs you and they take responsibility and apologize with sincerety, be willing to forgive and forge ahead. This is the example I would like to set. Happy Jubilee Celebrations everyone!"

Two weeks back, Ivan Ssemwanga was busy inviting pals for Zari's open bar birthday party which in the end never took place as Ivan was too busy that he missed his flight to Uganda.
Zari's 32nd birthday party was instead celebrated at Melrose Arch in South Africa with a few family members and friends though during that time, Zari kept most of her time tweeting and facebooking.
On Monday, Ivan's BMW was spotted clamped at Garden city. Cars at Garden city are clamped when they normally stay beyond closing hours. Its not yet clear how long the vehicle had stayed to warrant the action.
Meanwhile, Zari is in high preparations for the launch of her latest store at Garden City, The Renaissance Man, which launch will double as the Zari White Party. Watch this space!

The 'By-Far' Star has unveiled the Semakokiro Plaza with over 10 Units of which some will be ready for use by the end of this month.
The building is located in Kamwokya where he was cleaning last weekend as part of his CSR activities. Interestingly, the 'Tugambire Ku Jenipher' singer says these won't be rentals.
"This will be my business empire with Fire Base Offices, studio, bar, hospital and a shop with Fire Base Crew Designs." Recently, Chameleone unveiled Daniella Villas that he constructed for his wife, Bebe Cool said: "Never under estimate a snail, it can cover longer distances than a fly."
Bebe's version is that once his (6in1) houses are done, he would have run over these guys. However, Bobi and Bebe are not patient enough to unveil their structures when complete, they instead let the cat out of the bag early enough.
Ssemakokiro Plaza named after Buganda Kingdom's youngest son have 12 units. Meanwhile, last week's heavy presence of police at Centenary Park in an effort to restore the greenbelt reminded Bobi Wine's wife of how her containers that were dealing in Range Rover spare parts were removed.

The Ragamuffin Gyal Margla has just released her latest photo shoot which is by all standards raunchy.
The 'A-Me She Want' singer has some shots in the bush while smoking the pipe and others in a black see through dress revealing her thong underneath. At this rate of releasing raunchy shots, Margla might end up doing more of modeling than music.
Models like Doreen Kabareebe are giving up on this type of modeling to the fully clothes models. During the Wayne Wonder and Demarco show in August, Margla was all over Wayne Wonder, traveled in his car to the show, did some dirty dancing with him during the performance and at the end of the show, they retired to Sheraton Hotel together.
On getting to the hotel, Wayne Wonder told Margla on how he was tired and so he needed to rest. She was handed a Ugx20k note as transport back.
The raga dance-hall singer is behind tracks like 'Tinku', 'Oh Boy', 'Put on Ya Shoes' which she did with Bella, Prossy Patra and Leila. 'A-Me She Want' is her latest single.

Juliana said: "We did some cleaning today. A big thank you for everyone who turned up for this exercise. Was lovely meeting you all especially the patients, doctors and nurses. The experience is unforgettable."
Patients were excited on seeing their star reaching out to them and ensuring that they are in a clean environment. The worst was when she was done with the cleaning, she decided to check on the patients.
Juliana met this patient who was lying on the floor with her baby and yet just where they were sleeping, was a stain of blood but trust the chief cleaner of the month, the place was sparkling minutes later.
Juliana added: "Saying Hello to the Cute Little Baby. One of the problems the doctors face is lack of space. The hospital has become too small for the number of patients who pour in everyday and as a result they are overwhelmed."
Other artistes like Bebe Cool and Bobi Wine were also cleaning in Bukoto and Kamwokya respectively..
Model Kabareebe has reduced her stage appearances as a model and is now focusing more on prayer.
In one of her posts, the model whose butt has made more stage appearances than some upcoming artistes says: "Whenever I spend like 2 days without going to church, I feel there's something missing. God knows each of us personally and the moment he opens your doors, trust me, no one can dare to close them however much they try.
The butt model has even gone an extra mile and changed her profile pic to that of a Nigerian televangelist Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy Church who says that masturbation is not a sin, something that other Nigerian pastors don't agree with.
Like a model who still has one leg in the modeling field, she is now inviting people to go to Club Rouge tonight for the Bikini night though she says that she will not be modeling now that this is her final semester.

Former model Judith Heard is contemplating on starting a JH's Men's Wear as her Forest Mall based Flaunt Your Style store deals only in ladies wear and jeans and for men.
Nalongo Heard has been forced to start up a men's section for suits after noticing that a number of men put on suits that do not fit most of them having shoulder pads that are way below the shoulders and the jacket sleeves falling way below the wrist. This makes some walk like robots.
If JH had thought of this long before Zari's The Renaissance Man which deals in suits mostly, it could not have been linked to her copying Zari. Judith Heard claims that she did not know that Zari had opened up a men's store.
Judith who was being accused of not being creative by copying Zari told them that: "I didn't know Zari opened a men's store but again why shouldn't I open one, we got a different taste completely."
This comes at the time when Judith Heard's former boss Sylvia Owori who was occupying two shops at Garden city has opted for one while Zari has opened a second shop after Zari Jewels three months back.
Afro pop singer and song writer Grace Nakimera is so excited over her latest deal with the Kiboko group of companies that have contracted her to compose and perform a corporate anthem for them during their celebrations to mark 20 years of existence.
She wrote on her wall that: ''We've just signed a great deal, the biggest for any Ugandan female artiste ever..Iam so happy family...congratulate me.." Now that tone simply confirms how juicy the deal is.
The 'Nkwagala Kuffa' star is already reciting lines in Hindi as part of the rehearsals for the anthem which will see her wiggle her waist on that day. The function will be held at Speke Resort Munyonyo on September 28, 2012.
The shooting of the Kiboko anthem video is the second in less than two weeks after the 'Mpola Mpola' video that featured comedian and TV drama star Kuddzu Izaaq. Dr. Mich will be the host.
Singer, photographer cum video director Gasuza Lwanga currently in NYC has cut off his locks breaking the Rastafarian lifestyle.
One Agaba told him that: "Ya rudbwai...jah never give power to no bald head. Ya nwoo dis" Gasuza says he is still a rasta even after cutting off the dreads: "I'm still a rasta but a comb thru now, seen!!"
Meanwhile, the Dance-hall Crew King Michael formerly DJ Michael has also cut the dreads and this is what he says: "Dreadz off my head lookout for King Michaelz new look."
Zari is proud to have made 32 today and still looks younger than her age. Until Friday, Ivan was busy calling up on his friends to show up for the birthday party of the year at Guvnor-Angenoir.
The original plan was to have an open bar birthday party that could see revellers crawling after taking all tribes of booze but at the end of it all, the birthday gal, the party organizer were no where to be seen.
It has been widely rumoured that these two have separated and we had hoped that the birthday fete would be the right time to clear the space being that this was Zari's special day and a justifiable way of expressing their love.
This wasn't the case. Ivan is now saying he missed his flight as he was busy. "Am very sorry about the b'day party, was very busy n I missed my flight, but don't worry am planning on buying a private jet next so I wouldn't hustle. Happy Week ahead"
Now the rumour that Ivan and Zari have separated could be true. Zari was in Kampala less than a week back making final touches to her latest store, The Renaissance Man, but she did not hint on the Guvnor party and knowing Zari, she could have made sure that she alerts all her dolls to come and party with her, but this did not happen.
Zari who celebrated her birthday in South Africa put on a bare back butt revealing long outfit and cruised the white Lamborghini to some unknown destination. Trust Ivan, he is now trying to confuse the whole issue with his latest ride to his fleet that happens to be a Bentley.
Zuena, Barbie and Daniella are three special women engaged to the top musicians in the land who stay at home taking care of the kids while their husbands make the dime at different gigs in the night.
Zuena Kirema is engaged to Bebe Cool (Moses Ssali) while Barbie (Barbara Itungo) is married to Bobi Wine(Robert Kyagulanyi) and last but not least is Daniella Atim, who is married to Jose Chameleone (Joseph Mayanja).
Daniella keeps at home most of the time taking care of the kids. Barbie on the other hand has been busy managing the One Love Beach, replenishing the second batch of her village belle book let alone ensuring that the Omubanda Wa Kabaka reality show on Bukedde is up and running.
Zuena Cool is into music and has two tracks to her name, 'Owa Boda' and 'Mata', a collaboration with the then Eighton and Rain. This not only makes her a wife to a musician but also a musician.
This type of CV has made Zuena utter some words similar to not comparing her with any other musician's wife as the only thing they have in common is being MARRIED to a musician. Zuena emphasizes the marriage aspect as she even puts it in caps, may be because not so many have witnessed a wedding as big as Bobi Wine and Chameleone.
Barbie's reaction sounded like scripts in a yet to be released book on people who try so hard. "We sometimes wonder why some people deny the obvious when criticised, why they desperately seek for assurance that they are loveable, why they try hard to please others in order to get public attention."
She concludes: "Wonder no more. Such people have low self esteem and they don't believe in themselves. Try hard to accept who you are and never to wish you were somebody else."
Have the wars crossed to the musician's wives!! Watch this space!
Lovers and fans of a local drama series The Hostel are all excited after the team behind the writing and filming of season three confirmed that they are ready and starting Sept 29, 2012 the Hostel series will be showing on NTV after the 9pm news.
The Managing Director and CEO of Fast Track Productions, Conrad Nkutu confirmed the development on his wall: "Okay, we've missed a couple of start dates and deeply apologise, but the date is on in a weeks time: Saturday, Sept 29th on NTV Uganda after the news."
Season three comes at the time when Eleanor Nansibo who acts as (Hope) had just introduced Matthew Nabwiso(Gilo) to her parents a few months back. Hellen Lukoma (Patra) is also dating Dean Nsubuga.
Cast members continue to realize some chemistry while rehearsing and acting in The Hostel Series and soon we will see the first baby born out of 'The Hostel' as Eleanor is preggie.
It's getting hot in here. The 'Owa Boda' star and former model Zuena Cool also the mother to Bebe Cool's three kidz is advertising a 4-bed roomed house in Kigoowa for rent shortly after Chameleone unveiled Daniella Villas that go for Shs1.2m per month in Bweyogerere.
Zuena says that she's finalizing with the painting and the house will be ready in a months time. She concludes by saying 'Ndisa Butti Sipapa' similar to slow but sure. Appearing on WBS Tv Monday Night Live show, Bebe said that he could have completed his house had it not been the Shs90m that he has sunk in his various charity activities.
Chances are the 4-bed roomed talk has been sparked by Daniella Villas which Chameleone constructed for his wife, Daniella. Zuena has now brought out the Kigoowa house as a way of containing the Villas.
Recently Zuena told her fans that: "Ladies & gentlemen with all due respect plz stop comparing me with other musicians wives, we're very different in terms of background, age, tribe, sense of fashion, likes and dislikes..the only thing we have in common is being married to a musician yes MARRIED. thank you in advance"
We recently told of how a row had erupted between the Spirit of Africa boss Richard Kaweesa and the Tusker Project Fame 2 winner Esther Nabaasa aka Estar over the official Uganda Jubilee song, Yoga Yoga Uganda.
Richard dashed to her wall to post this: "When a thief steals from you and then invites you to come to a public function to witness his ownership claim of what he stole from you; and you actually turn up and say nothing; then I consider you hopeless!"
This very post got a response from a one Abok Jean Joan who wrote: "She might have said nothing because she respected you as her elder in music and didn't want to ashame you in public."
Kaweesa replied: "Know the facts about the project before you comment with an emotional high. I have worked with almost every musician and I have helped many become great across East Africa. Why would I give Estar a chance and then take it away?"
In 'Yoga Yoga Uganda' and 'Sip from the Nile' which Estar composed for Nile Breweries to celebrate 50 years, her fans have once again got the opportunity to hear from her. Estar's first album was titled Rock in Country Soul which she launched in South Africa and since then, she has been taking care of her family.
The Uganda social scene has seen all sorts of 'celebs' in form of socialites who have been around and left an impact on those who look up to them or better still wish they could be in their shoes, but one thing is for sure, it's becoming clear that they are going down faster than they came up.
Driving expensive personalized cars, throwing parties, making statements that easily make it to the front pages are some of the characteristics that best describe these 'tycoons'. Below are the celebs, we might soon forget unless when something out of the ordinary happens.
Mike Ezra - Hit the limelight in the year 2000 and his buying a wrist watch at USD250,000 did not fail to make news, traveling by chopper to watch a football match, threatened to buy Leeds football team and the last we heard of him was during the USD3M Emin Pasha press conference. The next time he surfaced was in Kenya when he was arrested for issuing a bounced cheque only to be driven in an old Peugeot to court.
Bad Black - The former city socialite is still fresh but at least the nine months she conquered Kampala have left a mark on those who were around her and benefiting from the Shs11bn that she spent to the time it landed her a four year jail term. Clubs (particularly Club Rouge that hosted her 22birthday), Bars, Hotels benefited from the dime she embezzled from her former lover David Greenhalgh.
Zari - The mother of three boys loves cars, traveling, shoes and shopping. Life has never been the same from the time she met South African businessman Ivan Ssemwanga. She has tried music, a reality show, held white parties, drives cars ranging from a Chrysler, Benz, Hummer, AudiQ7 among others.
She is now not riding on the same horse with Ivan who she introduced to her parents late last year. She has resorted to spending her time opening up shops as a way of expanding her mini empire.
Sylvia Owori - She's been an authority on the social scene for the last ten years. Started the first modeling agency, Ziper Models, supplying models in East Africa. She met her fiance Per Munk Nielsen and together they started African Woman Magazine which has now closed shop. Her boy friend Malik who lost two professional fights sponsored by Sylvia is battling theft charges in court. Garden City based Sylvia Owori store was even reduced in size, implying that they are now occupying less space than they previously did.
Singer Bebe Cool and his arch rival Ghetto president Bobi Wine have set their album launches. Bobi Wine's By-Far (Jenniffer) album will be launched on 26-Oct-2012 at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds followed by the Satellite and One Love Beach Shows.
Twenty fans will have the opportunity of cruising with the ghetto president, Bobi Wine on the Omubanda Wa Kabaka Yacht with fish on the house.
In a recent interview, the 'Kabirinage' star told the interviewer that he will be launching his 'Kamwako' on 2,3 and 4th of November at venues yet to be communicated. The two artistes have been launching on the same dates in their previous two launches but they were forced to reconsider this.
Bobi Wine and Bebe Cool recently locked horns in what they termed as the Battle of the Champions and both camps declared themselves winners but we are beginning to see some fruits out of that.
Rumours had started circulating that they have again set the same album launch dates but going by the information coming through from reliable sources, this is unlikely.
Jailed Shanita Namuyimbwa aka Bad Black has been granted bail in the traffic offence that was committed last year at Acacia Avenue when she knocked down a man who was riding with his wife and child on a boda baoda.
Bad Black who is currently serving a four year jail term looked composed as she was granted a cash bail at Shs800,000/- while her sureties were bonded at Shs 20m none cash.

International artistes continue coming to Uganda with Sean Paul and Konshen expected in a few weeks just after DeMarco, Wayne Wonder and Judy Boucher had just performed in Uganda.
Meet and Greet parties are held for the artistes at different top hang outs. Its here that babes resort to cut throat competition to out do each other to grab the star's attention. Cross legged, cat-walking, see through outfits which have now been upgraded to nothing at all are some of the tricks the gals will use.
In some cases, money is used like in the case of Bad Black when she had to pay $10,000 just to have an exclusive party with the Ashawo star.
In 2008, the then Celtel Uganda which later became Zain and now Airtel brought in Senegalese born US Rapper Akon real name Aliaune Damala Badara Thiam together with the Nigerian duo P-Square who left babes yearning for more as seen from the pic above.
During that time, the lucky gal was Susan Owori a young sister to fashionista Sylvia Owori who gave Akon quality time and that interaction led to a baby boy. Akon is now taking responsibility for that and has filed a petition for legitimation in a GA Superior court.
Once this is successful, it would mean that Susan Owori's child could be free to inherit from Akon and also free to use his last name 'Thiam' as their own. Akon has different kids with at least three women.
According to reliable sources, he has been a father to the kids but he is only formalizing the process now that they were born out of the wed lock. Close pals to Susan Owori say that she is willing to accept the deal if Akon puts a ring on her finger otherwise there's no deal.
Former city socialite Shanita Namuyimbwa aka Bad Black has rushed to the court of appeal claiming that her health condition is deteriorating on top of having a six month old baby. She now wants court to release her on bail as she waits for the outcome of her appeal.
Bad Black who is serving a four year jail term after embezzling money from Daveshan Development Uganda Ltd adds in her appeal that the sentence was to much now that it was as a result of a love relationship that went sour.
Bad Black is complaining of pain and swellings in her tummy and needs to visit her doctors in Nsambya who performed the C-section. All this comes at a time when she is battling a traffic offence in which she knocked down three passengers on a boda-boda bike last December.
Bad Black will be appearing at City Hall Court on Monday, Sept 17, 2012 over the traffic offence charges.
Local artiste Cinderella Sanyu aka Cindy's lover Mario Brunette has slashed off everything adopting a new look which Cindy seems to love.
The celebrity couple is blessed with one daughter Amani who is about one year and are yet to exchange vows. In 2010, the couple separated for sometime just like any couple anyway but later made up and since then, they are spotted together in different hangouts.
Cindy was supposed to launch her latest album but it was postponed after it fell short of meeting requirements for night performances in Kampala as required by the new law. The Ayokyayokya star is yet to advise on the new launch date.
Last year, Maurice Kirya, a nominee in the 2012 Channel O Music Video Awards cut off his dreads opting for the bald look.
In the just concluded Tusker Project Fame, Uganda was represented by three stars though the third one did not go beyond day one as he failed to impress the judges who had no option but to let him board the next Air Uganda flight to Uganda.
Next was Allan Sekiranda, a brother to the 'Ame-She-Want' singer Da Ragamuffin Gyal Margla who was not happy with the comments judge Juliana made after Allan's performance, but he also had to leave the academy eventually.
Sharon was the last Ugandan left on the show after the other two had been dropped. Now the latest coming in is that she has joined Sarah Zawedde's Zawee Band as a way of breaking through with her music.
Other TPF artistes who are active include Naava Grey with hits like 'Nteredde', 'Champion' a collabo she did with Mun*G that is making rounds on charts. The TPF2 winner Esta Nabaasa has been quiet for some time busy taking care of her baby but on bouncing back, the official jubilee song, Yoga Yoga Uganda that she wrote and composed was born.
Contrary to rumours that the couple has split, Ivan is busy inviting pals for the wife's open bar birthday party that will be held on 23 Sep, 2012 at the posh Guvnor-Angenoir.
The couple was recently involved in a bitter fight to the extent that Zari came out publicly denouncing domestic violence. She had actually pulled out but had to reconsider her decision after the sisters pleaded with her to keep right their for the sake of the kids.
Zari is currently in the country to over see the launch of her latest shop The Renaissance Man. Its not clear though if her current visit doubles as the launch for her new shop and her birthday.
The socialite has been throwing all sorts of parties in the past and her birthday is one of those moments that call for a big celebration just like Desire and Judith Heard did in the recent past.
South African based socialite Zari Hassan is in the country to launch her latest shop, The Renaissance Man three months after launching the Garden City based Zari Jewels which mainly deals in bridal accessories, bracelets, designer wrist watches among others.
Now the socialite who simply puts it as expanding her empire has come up with something for the men which will be having designer men's suits, shirts at affordable prices at Garden City.
In her wall post she says: "Here to expand ma mini legacy/empire with d opening of The Renaissance Man." She adds that: "Look no further for corporate suits,groom and gents accessories...luv 2 c u there."
Zari joins other socialites like Judith Heard with her Flaunt Your Style store at Forest Mall and Sylvia Owori's fashion line at Garden City. Zari is into music, mother of three, has a reality show, and now Zari Jewels and The Renaissance Man.
Star singer Chameleone's official social network page on facebook that was created in February 2012 has clocked 10,000 likes/fans. and he says the Leone Island family has grown "We're finally 10,000... no ghosts!!"
The star recently bagged Shs150m in the current Moto Moto X-Trail promotion in which
4 out of 8 Nissan X-trails have so far been won by those taking Mirinda, Pepsi or Mountain Dew drinks.
Chameleone unveiled Daniella Villas that were constructed for his wife Daniella Atim as part of Chameleone Investments and he says that is not all, he is yet to unveil more in under a week. Watch that space!
Chameleone showing off Daniella Villas that he built for his wife Daniella to celebrate their love.
As Bebe Cool was on WBS talking about how he met Zuena and his forthcoming album launches let alone justifying why he should get the Shs2.9bn in the Nakumatt shooting, the 'Salute' star was unveiling the Daniella Villas to his fans.
The 'Moto-Moto' star who has been battling with hugging a nude model for the last two weeks and trying to let whoever cared to know that (1). Daniella was in Italy (2). She was not about to divorce put all his problems at the back of his head to usher in the rental villas he constructed for his wife as a way of celebrating their love.
"After not being their at the olympics 2012, time running out at the Africa Unplugged, the nude girl saga, friends, I unveil out of (Chameleone Investments) Daniella Villas, Namboole. Neighbour "Z" wake up.
Bebe Cool referred to him and Bobi Wine as Neighbour (A) and Neighbour (B). Bobi Wine has been busy with the launch of his 'Jennipher' track that seems to be occupying him as he busy convincing all those concerned that he was not singing about the KCCA Executive Director.
On the other hand, Jose Chameleone has been busy with the Moto-Moto launch at the same time digesting model Kabareebe's bum cheeks, so he hadn't responded to the 'Ndisa Buti' star.
Singer Liane says she was only posing by the Orange Jeep and she did not actually buy it.
Last Thursday, (Sept 6) Upcoming artiste Nakaweesi Lillian whose stage name is Lianne posted a pic on her wall standing next to an orange jeep saying that: "I bought this baby last evening...who wants to ride with moi???" This was followed by fans who kept on congratulating her on the big 'achievement'.
One Akwech Peter who did not buy it a single bit wrote: "Ugandans have a lot of tricks these days!! plus photo shop is making things easier these days!! step my toes and I will believe."
Liane replied to his post calling him a hater and wondered why he could not get something better to put his energy to.
The news of the jeep was trending on Liane's wall from Thursday to Saturday. On Monday, (Sept 10), the Mighty Red Pepper wrote about the 'jeep' in what they termed as a Loaded Nkuba Kyeyo injects massive pounds in the singer's faulty career.
This marked the end of the open lie with Liane revealing what exactly she was doing next to the orange jeep: "Truth is that I just posed with that jeep on Wed during the Spear Motors cocktail party as they were unveiling their latest ML350."
After clearing the space on the 'Jeep', the 'Holiday' star turned the guns to all those who were commenting negatively on her dream to own a jeep. However, when RP referred to her career as 'Faulty', the upcoming artiste reacted.
"Are you kidding me..I'm one of the few artistes whose foundation is not based on tabloid hype, but raw talent....I'm the real deal and I'm positive I will own that jeep out of ma hard work someday."
Lianne is behind tracks like 'Holiday', 'Weyanze' and 'Omusawo' among others.

Baboon Forest rapper Mun*G was all smiles last Friday as it turned out that his Namalayo Concert was at least by his standards a success bearing in mind that top international stars like Demarco, Sisqo and the list goes on were performing to empty seats.
By 8:00pm, the show kicked off with performances from Maisha Dancers, Don Mc, Lyrical G and Young Mullo who did his blockbuster hit 'Tebatusobola' sending the crowd into wild cheers as they sung along.
The show then crossed to another level or artistes who included Navio and GNL who did 'Kampala Yaffe' and 'Wuba Akatambala'. At 10:30pm, the 'Namalayo' star hit the stage clad in a white suit sending the gals into untold frenzy.
He started off with 'Kyabise' then 'Ebintu'. Model Doreen took to the cat-walk showcasing designer Latif's outfits. Mun*G then bounced back with 'Biki Biki' and 'Speaking in tongues' before taking a break.
The show then crossed to a paying respect to fallen heroes, Sera and Mr. X whose photos were displayed all over the screens.
GNL and other Baboon forest members hit the stage with 'Sesetula' that got the crowd dancing and when it came to 'Kyaba Too Much', this was like the epitome of the show. 'Champion', a track Mun'G did with Tusker Project Fame star Naava Grey was next in which they sung that ..if you believe, you can be a champion and indeed this is what happened to Mun*G last Friday at Kati Kati grounds.
A source close to the situation tells Ugandaonline.Net EXCLUSIVELY that Klear Kut has been banned from Club Rouge for the next six months.
Klear Kut's JB was last Friday involved in a fight with a yet to be identified Nigerian dude who kissed his gal.
The insider source revealed that JB was still walking with a swagg around the club thinking that his gal was by his side, but on looking closely, the Nigerian dude was all over his gal.
The long beard JB charged like a lion wanting to rip the guy into pieces. This prompted the bouncers to move in swiftly to quell the situation. Club Rouge's management decided to slap a ban Klear Kut's music from being played st the club for six months.
This was not all but also other members associated to Navio's group, Klear Kut were not allowed inside the club. Meanwhile, close pals to the gal revealed that the gal and the Megarian are friends. Watch this space!
Music Star has issues with papparazi who take Upskirt Shots.
City Diva Jackie Chandiru is still the talk of the town in Arua after her performance that marked the end of a five day football league in Arua Hill Boma Grounds.
Three months back, the ''Gold Digger' star was in Arua-(Hill View Gardens) at an event that was organised by Sky Events and Uganda Breweries Ltd clad in a gold short outfit that revealed her black undie.
Jackie's fans who graced the previous show made it a point not to miss this one and indeed, Jackie did not disappoint. Clad in a black pantyhose and short dress, the 'Gold Digger' star did most of her tracks.
However, one thing that kept on puzzling her was how the papparazi's were concentrating on her upskirt shots. "I still wonder till date why someone would deliberately place a camera under your skirt to take a pic!! Its like 1990!! I guess that's why we gonna keep in stone age...well, my peeps say its the pervz...i say, aint nobody dumb enuff not to wear shorts,y has madonna, rih rih, bey bey, tulisa, gaga...had pple do that to em...lemme think, maybe am"
The singer added that she once stopped a show after a fan touched her and yet she was in jeans.
Bobi Wine's latest single titled 'Jennifer' has made him a subject of discussion at both KCCA and the communications regulatory body, UCC.
The Omubanda Wa Kabaka also the Ghetto president recently released a song titled 'Jennifer' which was widely believed to be a verbal attack on Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Executive Director, Jennifer Musisi.
Bobi Wine was quick at clearing this by saying that he was only acting on behalf of the voiceless ghetto people. On the other hand, the Executive Director was approached on the matter though at the time, she had not listened to the song and promised to do so.
Executive Director Jennifer Musisi Responds
"I have not yet heard the song yet but I will surely try to find it. If he thinks he's trying to get at me, am sorry. He's a small fish with no bones and trust me, we shall see who has the last laugh,"
