At about a few minutes to 1pm, Bebe Cool clad in a red Gagamel T-shirt was already at Kyadondo Rugby Club for the press briefing. Twenty minutes later, Moze Radio and Weasel arrived and the meeting kicked off shortly after.
A coin was tossed and it turned out that the side the Goodlyfe Crew chose was on top, so they will be the first to perform 5 songs and Bebe Cool will follow and in total, both camps will perform 75 songs each. Amazingly, the artistes were all in a jovial mood and both spoke well of each other.
During the briefing, Bebe Cool thanked the promoter behind the battle for having put in so much in local artistes. He was equally very bitter with Suudiman for bringing in Busy Signal who will be performing on the same day. He did not forget the Park Yard vendors who lost their property this morning, he promised to do something.
Other than telling all who were around that they were ready for the show, Weasel looked composed but Moze Radio was roaring like a lion. One asked him to speak up, Moze Radio retaliated in his voice: "Tondekanyaaa Gweee Nja kukuba Ragga"
He was then asked if this was a battle about Zuena? Moze Radio replied that even Bebe Cool should be wondering if you are okay! Then the usual questions about Mandela's birthday performance and the BET nominations followed but the guys maintained, it was all about the BATTLE.
KFM, Pepsi, Movit, Carlsberg are among the sponsors. Meanwhile, there is a car to be won. To participate, you just have to send a text with either Goodlyfe or Bebe Cool to 8778. Silk Events is on sight busy working on the double stage.

The Goodlyfe Crew with their song; 'Can't Let You Go' lost the Channel O award for 'Most Gifted Ragga Dance Hall Video' to Kenya's P-Unit.
P-Unit's 'You Guy' did not spare them in another category of 'Most Gifted Ragga Dance Hall Video', the same category Navio has been nominated.
Tweeting from South Africa, the Goodlyfe Crew were quick to congratulate P-Unit. "Congs P-Unit, East Africa, Africa CHOAMVA well represented."
The 'Leka Kwenyumiliza' singer, Navio did not forget those that voted for him. "Big up to all my fans that voted for me. We'll get it in next year proper! 2014."
On the night of the awards, The Goodlyfe Crew wrote: "Tonight is the night of giants, let's celebrate like giants Channel O style," but Bebe Cool simply branded them as losers when it turned out that they had lost.
Goodlyfe's camp was quick to shoot back: "Being nominated is an achievement in itself, Radio and Weasel are nominated every year, where is Bebe Cool?"
This Friday, Bebe Cool and the Goodlyfe Crew will be battling it out at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds. On the same day, the dynamic duo will also be premiering their latest video, 'Miles Away' before facing off with Bebe Cool who will be in the red corner.

Last week, all TPF6 contestants were on probation and East Africa was given a chance to vote for their favourite contestants. Uganda's Derrick Kojjo and Phionah Mbabazi from Rwanda emerged with the least votes, earning them a quick exit from the house.
Contestants were given a chance to perform their favourite songs. Our very won Derrick Kojjo, Hope and Phionah did justice to 'Omulembe Gwa Kirya by Maurice Kirya, except for the microphone that kept on disrupting the session, then came Daisy and Nyambura who did 'Something Inside So Strong' by Kenny Rogers.
With Kojjo having been evicted, Uganda's hopes are now on Daisy Ejang. Other finalists include: Hisia, Hope, Patrick Nyamitari, Nyambura, Amos and Josh who are playing the game as one.
Meanwhile, last Sunday, (Nov 27), Sitenda was performing live at her eviction party that was held at Panamera Bar in Naguru.

Jose Chameleone is on his last music tour this year. The 'Tubonge' singer left for Istanbul Turkey on Saturday ahead of his show on December 01, 2013.
Chameleone will be perfuming with the 'Nalisikimanyi' singer also his young brother AK47. Two weeks back, Chameleone was in Nairobi where he left his fans yearning for the Tubonge hit, his latest gospel swahili song. It's video is already out and the fans are loving it.
Meanwhile, in June, Bobi Wine was in Istanbul, the largest city in Turkey for a show with his wife Barbie but as the couple hit the streets to tour the Istanbul attractions, they were caught up in demonstrations by activists that saw the Turkish police fire rounds of tear-gas to disperse a huge crowd.
These were Bobi Wine's words: "If am to compare this to Kaihuraz tear gas, u would agree with me that this Turkish tear gas is just smelling like chocolate."

Shanita Namuyimbwa aka Bad Black was later released on bond. However, on Thursday, in what looked like her last post she wrote: “Am on the way coming to Kampala via Gatuna Border-Mbarara-Masaka - Kampala.tired of running let me do my punishment so I live freely: David will care."
The next time you see a post from her might be after she's done with her jail term or she will do it the way Meddie did, 'tweeting from Luzira prison' but trust her, at the time of going back to Luzira prison, she had just bleached her skin and given the prison conditions, her skin might soon or later require specialized attention which might not be readily available at the prison.
Initially, many did not take her post serious but as it turned out, she was in Uganda looking knackered with her son Jonathan who kept on sucking his thumb. It's not clearly what she thinks or feels after denouncing her nationality for Thailand and even bleaching her skin to match that status.
This was one of the post that had more likes after she revealed that she was tired of being on the run.
“Smart decision however painful and hard it is. It's very hard to run away from the law. Sooner or later, Interpol would intercept you! The more you hide, the harder the punishment when they get you. Accept to get back, don't waste much of the Judges time.Get a good Lawyer, accept you erred and enter a plea deal then do the time. You could get some leniency that way than dragging the process and losing. Learn from your mistakes and pick the pieces to become a better person for your self, children, family and society! You will pull through. God bless u!!!”
Meanwhile, Greenhalgh’s legal team is not done yet. While they say it’s okay for her to serve the sentence, we still want the money refunded. Our interest is more in the case at the commercial court, we want them to refund that money, Greenhalgh’s lawyer said. He also hinted on having Meddie Ssentongo being sent back to Luzira because he was released before completing his 18 months sentence.

A few months back, we saw Bebe Cool reveal his best kept secret by introducing his first born Allan Brian Ssali aged 18, something that took most of his fans by surprise, and now, Ivan is doing the same.
Sharing Rodney's pics, Ivan wrote; "With my other son, Rodney." Zari has three boys with Ivan; Pinto, Didy and Quincy. However, the other reason for Zari being excited is none other than her latest addition to her fleet, a range over vogue, model 2013.
No doubt, the 33-year-old loves cars and with her Ciroc party slated for December 19, 2013 at Guvnor, Ange-Noir, Ivan has bought her a range rover vogue model 2013 which she will use for her white party as she explains:
"Went shopping with Ivan look what he found for the white party.....gotta love this Vogue damn. No more autobiography, this baby be rocking the white party! "

Singer Fille Clear was slightly injured on Wednesday when the Honda RVR she was driving was hit by another car, but the 'Where Have You Been At' star posted on Facebook that she was fine and did not get any serious injuries.
"Thank you family and friends for being concerned about the accident I was involved in earlier today (27 Nov), I want to let you know that I'm feeling much better and I didn't't get any serious injuries, it's only my ankle that sprained."
Tonight is the FILLE Listeners Party at Club Venom starting at 8pm where she will be performing for three hours. Most of her fans were worried that the party would not go on as planned following the accident but, the fast rising star said: "We're still on, come let's have fun."
If you've watched some of her videos, she has more foot work while doing her thing, so the sprained ankle might not stop her from asking where you've been, a track that got the 2013 BET nominees (Radio and Weasel) impressed that they had to do a rendition of 'Where Have You Been At'.
You need to listen to Moze Radio asking Fille where she's been @ before Weasel chips in with his rap bit though some music lovers are of the view that, the original version is better.

Today is Juliana's special day, It's her birthday. Congratulatory messages have been streaming in since last night. The 'Edibba' singer has spent a greater part of the day responding to tweets and facebook messages from fans who have been wishing her the very best on her day. Notable among them was fellow Tusker Project Fame judge, Ian Mbugua.
Many were doubting her age but this afternoon, she set the record straight and said that: "I was born on 27 November 1980," making her 33.
One Marilyn had this to say: "To all those who doubt people's ages, gone are the days when a 24 year old looked like your grand mothers. Ok, for the start, how old do you think Halima Namakula or Mariam Ndagire are? Do they look their years? At least I went to the same school with Juliana and Irene Namubiru."
She continues to say: "I was 3 classes a head of Juliana while Irene was 2 classes a head of me. I don't doubt her age. Or is it because she is tall, she has a big body. I have come to believe some people who complain about others are even younger than those they complain about. If you are younger than her, then when did you see her grow?"

Last Saturday (Sept 23), Paul and Peter Okoye were performing at the Leaders Club, Kinondoni in Dar-es-Salaam. As usual, the Nigerian music duo did not disappoint on their second visit to the East African country since 2008.
South Africa based Ugandan socialite Zari was there too hanging out with the P-Square duo and later in that evening, Zari was cheering the 'Personally' singers at the Leaders Club. No doubt, she had fun judging from her tweet the following morning: "Good Morning Africa..Psquare rocked Tz, I personally loved it."
However, the main reason for Zari traveling to TZ was more to do with the Ledger Plaza, Bahari beach party which was held on Sunday. She was the chief guest. There was also a fashion show by Tanzania's Ally Rehmtullah. Just last month, Zari was in South Korea as the Miss Asia Pacific Ambassador for Africa and now Tanzania.
Zari was so grateful for her short stay in Tanzania. "Thanking everyone who received me and all those that came through. I love u guys, TZ is so awesome. God bless u, thanks once again."

As expected, police had to deploy heavily around Kampala Capital City Authority offices where the voting exercise was taking place. A lawyer who wanted to deliver a court order to halt the proceedings was denied access to the meeting venue and put onto a waiting police pick-up.
Authorities did not wait for Kisekka market vendors to go on rampage. They forced all the shops to close and asked the market vendors to vacate. Police fired tear-gas to disperse the crowds that were pelting them with stones. The Kampala North Operations commander, Sam Omala explained the reason behind the closure of the shops that; "It's not easy to tell who is throwing stones because they mix with people operating these stores."
Meanwhile, inside the hall where the voting process was taking place, one councillor, Allan Ssewanyana kept on interrupting the process as he tried to present the court order but he was later thrown out of the hall. He was one of the three councillors who voted in favour of Mr. Lukwago not to be kicked out but their vote was too low compared to the 29 votes.
In a related development, Dr. Kizza Besigye was equally arrested as he tried to get out of his home. Earlier on, when the Minister had just received the tribunal report, Dr. Kizza Besigye was using lines like: 'Omuloodi Waali' meaning that the Lord Mayor is still in office, which the police did not take lightly, thus subjecting him to preventive arrests.
Talking to BBC's Focus on Africa, Mr. Lukwago said that: "There's no respect for the constitution, for the rule of law and for democratic governance."
Using his facebook, Mr. Lukwago wrote: "Court order obdurately defied, lawyers harangued and clobbered, Hon. Minister presides over a purpoted Authority meeting without vital instruments like the mace, mambas and Kibooko squad unleash terror in the city:,all in the name of evicting one person from city hall, moreover at a time when he is languishing in a hospital in Nsambya. My head will always remain high as long as am on the right side of history."

Not so sure if this will call for another skin bleach operation just to make that area blend with the rest of the abdominal skin, but as you are trying to get to terms with her new look, her lover boy, Maysean is going through a lot by comparing the new packaging with the old one.
Now just yesterday, as she was trying to justify why she bleached herself, 'Bad White' said that she hates being black and also denounced her Ugandan citizenship for Thailand.
Meanwhile, Bad Black has a tendency of not show a pregnant woman look after giving birth, WHY, because she normally does a C-section but with twins on the way, it's left to see if the stitches can heal in time given her new bleached skin.
The bleaching did not only change the colour of her skin but also the skin hair so that it blends with her new colour. However, this skin colouring has it's side effects too some of which are even immediate.
Acne, skin cancer, liver damage, psychiatric disorders and cataracts are some of the effects for skin bleaching. In one of the shots, you can see her trying to open her eyes wide, hopefully that is not a cataract effect.

"Very poor photo shop as it was even mirrored, the eye ring is on the right side of the face not left as on the real photo.." Yesterday, Juliana bounced back with yet another photo which was an upclose of her face.
This move seemed like a retaliation to the above comments. In the photo, Juliana makes a point on the eye pin and just in case any one is casting doubt about her looking younger than her age, there she was with another upclose shot for the doubting thomases.
Five days from now, Juliana will be turning 32, but many are like NOPE. In the first pic, Juliana was not smiling, so some fans demanded that they can only recognize her after she smiles, she did not dissapoint, in just a few hours, she released a shot wearing a smile.
Talk of celebs connecting with their fans on facebook!

It's no secret the late Michael Jackson was an inspiration to many but fugitive Shanita Namuyimbwa aka Bad Black has taken that love to another level.
This is not about crotch-grabbing or moonwalking but pregnant with twins Bad Black recently supplemented her nose job with a total body skin bleach and now she is not black anymore. It should also be noted that she had had breast implants not long before her arrest, so on finding her guilty in the Shs 11bn case, she told authorities that her breast implants were leaking to her stomach wall.
Bad Black was then released on a Shs 100m bail to go for treatment in Dubai, but she has since been declared a fugitive after jumping bail something that puts her sureties that include veteran singer, Halima Namakula on the line. She was arrested last month in Rwanda and later released on bond.
She is now back all looking completely different something that many think is done to dupe authorities that may be looking for her to completer her 4-year-jail term. The mom of three had only done 4 months out of the 4 year sentence.
Meanwhile, her new look is faced with mixed reactions with some telling her that she looked better before bleaching but all she says is that: "I desired it and at the end of the day, It's my money." That's Bad Black for you or may be she will change her avatar to Good White..!
Below are some of the photos for Bad Black before and after the skin bleaching:

It's that time of the year when streets of Kampala will be painted yellow all in the name of the now popular sport, MTN Marathon.
Kiprotich is a true story with two gold medals (World and Olympic marathons) tagged to his name implying that we now have increased numbers of people trying to emulate the gold medalist.
This Sunday, thousands will be running for water in this years' MTN 2013 Marathon. Bebe Cool is terming this as the last charity event by the Gagamel this year, so, he's calling up all the Gagamel fans to join the race and see him beat thousands to the finishing line.
"All Gagamel fan's n friends let's all register for the MTN Marathon, let's all do our last charity on this. I promise, I Bebe Cool will be among the first one thousand people among the twenty thousand plus participants. Let's run for water, Let's run for our lives."
Meanwhile, Chameleone would have loved to participate but due to his sprained foot, he might only end up performing and cheering the athletes.
This Sunday, an estimated 20,000 athletes will be taking part in the 42, 21 and 10km race. This year, a new route for the half marathon runners has been designed.

Bad Black and boyfriend Maysean Velos are counting down a few months until their little bundles of joy enter the world and the mom of three has even gone ahead to document their progress on facebook.
Bad Black's complexion has changed lately and she says she is even lighter than Beyonce. However, the light complexion changes are as a result of the socialite bleaching her skin as she explains.
"My doctor is doing a great job, lighter than Beyonce, money talks BS works I'm shining like a diamond but can't wait for my twins.. lol"
Just mid last month, Bad Black was arrested in Rwanda on suspicion of drug dealing and money laundering but was later released on bond only to embark on a celebration of sorts that has resulted in a twin pregnancy.
In 2012, Bad Black gave birth to a baby girl claiming her ex-David Greenhalgh, a Briton was the father, but within a few days, the baby turned out to be of dark complexion. This was when she said that Uganda Cranes striker, Eugene Sepuya was the baby father.
Bad Black and Maysean don't know the babies' sexes, unless when they are keeping it a surprise.

She recently told some snoops that she was closer to Fess than any other contestant in the academy. She added that there's quite a lot they have shared while in the academy, so it will not be in order to end things just like that. On the other hand, Fess is open about his friendship with Daisy and he said that from the time she dedicated him a love song, life has not been the same.
This week, no contestant has been put on probation, so the contestants are having a stress free week but it could have been better for Daisy had Fess not been evicted. Daisy has even revealed that even when Tusker Project Fame ends, she will have a reason to go to Kenya, and this she hopes to do sooner rather than later.
Sitenda was also evicted last Saturday, the very day Fess left the academy, but as fellow contestants gathered to comfort her on being evicted, Daisy was seen shedding tears but since they(Daisy and Sitenda) are competing against each other on the Ugandan ticket, it's highly unlikely those tears were Sitenda. She was heart broken that her boo had been evicted.
Sitenda being evicted is good news to Daisy as it means less competition for her, now those tears were for Fess and not Sitenda, simple!

The on and off model is in the running for 'Best Outstanding Model' after being recognised for her role in the industry for the last one year. Knowing her game so well, Doreen has turned to soccer fans to solicit for votes by showing off some of her football skills. In the shots, Doreen is seen taking full control of the ball around her thigh area.
The awards code named Men's Explosion Fashion have a category for 'Best Dressed Female Celebrity' and the nominees are; Sheila Gashumba, Judith Heard, Leila Kayondo, Helen Lukoma and Zari. This category is quite interesting and competitive at the same time. It's like plus size models (Zari and Leila) VS. ('Portables').
Other categories in the awards include: 'Best Male Dressed Celebrities' with ex-con, Meddie Ssentongo, Maurice Kirya, Kim Swagga, Exodus and Eddy Kenzo as the nominees.
Meanwhile, NTV's Moris Mugisha and Douglas Lwanga are competing for 'Best Dressed TV Personality' with UBC's Calvin The Entertainer, ex-Big Brother flop Charlie Denzel Mwiyeretsi and a one Mosha Dance. The rest of the categories include: Best Fashion Writer, Best Make-Up Artist, Best Fashion Designer and Lifetime Style Icon among others.

Last Saturday, Sitenda was saved by fellow housemates only to bounce back on the chopping block this week with deep-voiced Hope from Burundi, Amos and Josh from Kenya who were lucky to make it back to the academy. Fess from Kenya was also not that lucky as he was the other victim of tonight's double eviction.
That puts the number of evicted contestants to 16. Daisy and Kojjo will now need your support to make it to December 8, 2013 when the winner of of the Shs 150m cash prize will be announced.
Tomorrow, all the contestants will perform to determine who gets nominated. Meanwhile, many have predicted that given Sitenda's talent, she might end up like Grey Naava who equally did not win or get close to the prize money but ended up singing, something that has even failed some of the previous winners.

"My dear fans, I will meet so many obstacles that will try to bring me down, but I am thankful for your support that always keeps me strong and moving forward! All I want to do is inspire and to show the world that nothing is impossible, in that case I bury myself in hard work, in the music, the cafe, the innovations, and this does affect many things that i do outside of the mentioned, but I appreciate that you are always here for me no matter what obstacle comes my way, you guys are my family of thousands, and thank you for always being by my side! Twaake!"
Apparently, Maurice Kirya is dating Pastor Michael Kyazze's daughter, Jemimah Kyazze but in the article, it's stated that the Omega Healing Centre pastor is not happy with his daughter being around a musician. However, from the above post, he clearly states that these are just some of the obstacles in his way as he thanked his fans for being their for him.
Meanwhile, the We Can Work It Out singer amused his fans by the way he handled the whole issue. Armed with a copy of the Kampala Sun outside his newly opened 'The Sound Cup' at Garden city, he looked so calm sipping his coffee as he perused through the story.
Jemima's relationship status reflects in a relationship and has been like that since May 24, 2013.

On adding a better version of a BMW, the tycoon decided to ship the old one to Uganda for his girl friend, Leila Kayondo of the AWO fame. She was spotted a few days back cruising the convertible ride on the dusty streets of Kampala and the music coming out of the car was; 'Awo Nkungabye Awo wenjagala,' her latest song.
It should be noted that SK Mbuga has at least three Hummers here in Uganda with personalised number plates of (SK Mbuga1, SK Mbuga 2, SK Mbuga3) plus other posh vehicles in South Africa. The two (Leila and SK)have become 'real close' since her visit to South Africa early this year.
The 'Kuzina Nawe' singer has since made several trips to South Africa something that rubbed her elder sister the wrong way. Leila is a young sister to Mbuga's Uganda wife.
The tycoon is so into Ugandan music. Jose Chameleone is his stop artiste here in Uganda to the extent that he had to facilitate 'Hooray' a collaboration song between Chameleone and Leila.
Still on Leila's music path, one of her latest songs, 'AWO' is doing well both on radio and TV stations and before it gets off the radar, this morning, she wrote on her wall that she was just about to release another monster hit.
In her words, this seems to be better than AWO. "Amazing a big tune, are guys ready!"

Comparing herself now and then, it looks like the results at the gym have started paying off. Following several kilometres on the treadmill, Zari has toned down on her behind and shed off some fat as a result of regular work outs.
The mom of three has even cut down the rate at which she tweets due to regular workout sessions. Looking at her pics, she was amazed with the results and had this to say:
"Get inspired or expired.... it comes with motivated hardwork!!! I love ma gym grind, results don't lie!"
So if you've been hitting the gym lately and the fats are not reducing for example, you might as well keep more focus on the workouts, get enough sleep and also, work out harder as opposed to longer, you will soon get the desired results.

Comedian Anne Kansiime has scooped yet another award just days after getting one from London. Anne won the 'Best Actress' award in the Lagos International Film Festival (LIFF) awards that were held last Sunday in Nigeria. It was for her role in the film dubbed 'In This Love'.
"Best Actress 2013. Lagos International Film Festival Awards!! Yeeeiiii," Anne wrote on her wall while sharing the good news. This is surely her year. It all started with the introduction of her lover, Gerald Ojok to her parents, then travelled to the UK shortly after for the BEFFTA awards.
The UK trip paid off as she emerged the 'Best Comedian' for the year 2013 in the BEFFTA awards. While in the UK, she had the opportunity to appear on BBC's Focus on Africa. Anne also held some comedy stints during her short visit to the UK all in th name of showing some ninja moves to her fans, like she puts it.
Back home, many had started speculating that she had been fired after fellow comedian, Tindi replacing her on the MiniBuzz show. Trust the Ninja, she quickly dashed to her wall and wrote letting whoever cared to know that she had not resigned nor been fired. "I cannot cheat on you my Ninjas."

Sheebah Karungi turned 24 yesterday. The birthday girl will belatedly celebrate her day with other November babies at Pa-Lui Kudos in Ntinda tonight.
The 'Ice Cream' singer has promised her 'Sheebaholic' fans lots of entertainment from her queen dancers and guitarists. Sheebah is expected to do some of her songs that include: 'Kunyenyeza', 'Nsazewo', 'Nkwetaaga' among others. At just 24, Sheebah is a head turner and not struggling to remain young like Desire Luzinda who amazed many when she got stuck at 25.
Over 200 friends posted birthday messages on her timeline with some promising to deliver ice cream and cakes as presents.
Two weeks back, Sheebah was at Club Silk performing at the Unplugged show alongside Khalifa Aganaga and Gravity Omutujju. As usual, she left many revellers wanting more of her open and close dance moves which she did with ease.

Amos and Josh from Kenya were next up doing 'Oleku' by Ice Prince though judge Ian did not like their performance followed by Fess who did Frank Ocean's 'Thinking About You', but it was not all that good and in the end, this won Kenya's Fess a slot on the chopping block.
Patrick doing 'Khona' by Mafikizolo was next and the judges liked his performance. Rwanda's Phiona did Katy Perry's roar while Hisia from TZ hit the stage doing 'Oliver Twist' by D'Banj followed Hope from Burundi with Busy Signal's 'Missing You' though they were all average.
Uganda's Daisy was the last up doing 'Without You' by Alaine though her previous performances were far better. At the end of the night's performances, Uganda's Sitenda was part of the contestants up for possible eviction this Saturday. To vote for Sitenda from Uganda send Tusker 11 to 8338.
Other contestants up for eviction include: (Amos and Josh), Fess all from Kenya and Burundi's Hope. Meanwhile, on Saturday, it was the end of the road for South Sudan's Bior. Sitenda was also up for eviction last week, but Kojjo could not even save her something that did not go down well with a section of Ugandan TPF fans. For now though, you just have to keep voting for Sitenda!!!

Then came Saturday which proved a little too tight for her as she breaks it down: "From a video shoot to Bobi Wine's concert to Twilight to The Lumbox party to Sharon O's launch of BLU-ICE to ........"
It's evident from her posting that the 'Amateeka' singer had a busy schedule and beating that schedule could only mean that she had to accord a few minutes of body wiggling and singing per show.
Straight from shooting her latest video, Cindy dashed to Lugogo Cricket Oval for the free-for-all Akalimu Concert, then Twilight and Lumbox Party and then crowned off the night with a performance at Sharon O's Blue Ice Bar and Lounge that had opened to the public earlier in the day.
In her wall post, it's clear she still had unfinished business and that was none other than her boo, Mario Brunette and daughter who were equally missing her love.

Jose Chameleone, Gravity Omutujju, Eddie Kenzo plus other Fire Base Crew members were part of the artistes that entertained revellers before the Ghetto gladiator stormed the stage at about 11:00pm.
Bobi performed non stop for two hours and at exactly 1:00am, Mr. G hit the stage doing his 'Swaggerific' song that sent the crowd wild, screaming and dancing to his tunes.
Clad in black leather jacket and a matching trouser, Bobi Wine came back on stage joining Mr. G to do some of their songs that included 'Clean and Out' and 'High Grade' among others.
The show ended at 2:00pm with most revellers saying that it was a night never to be forgotten.
Bobi Wine's wife who had earlier disgareed with the idea of a free concert was forced to reverse her words:
"It was not until Red Cross trailers full of donations drove out of Lugogo Cricket Oval that I stamped and sealed the Akalimu Album Charity launch a success. Nothing beats joined forces. You did it! You raised donations worth billions of shillings. Am speechless. Love that spirit dear Ugandans and Salute to the brains and big heart behind Friday's show. H.E Bobi Wine am humbled, I've learnt my lesson well, I won't argue with you again."

The free party was a celebration of the Gagamel page reaching the 100,000 fan mark. This called for a mega celebration and that was the business at Club Amnesia last night. Unfortunately, the venue was too small to accommodate large groups. Bebe Cool fans were clad in 100% Bebe Cool regalia as they danced to his tunes from the 'Bafudde' days to 'Coccidiosis'.
To commemorate this day, Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema also the NTV Life Stories host made some finger lickin cakes which the fans enjoyed. Most of these fans, had to honour Bebe Cool's invitation because they are so loyal to the point that when BEBE makes a post, they hang on to the page for up to three hours just to see comments that come up.
The facebook page made the 100,000 fan mark on (Sep 24) but the celebration was yesteday, the very day Bobi Wine was holding his Akalimu-Charity concert featuring Mr. G, however, it was equally flooded with revellers now that it was free provided one came with something to donate to the Bududa Landslides and Kasese Flood Victims.
Meanwhile, Bebe Cool has added his voice to clear the space on rumours that were doing rounds about the Battle of Champions being cancelled.
"To our fans who are ready for the Battle, I wish to reassure you that the Battle of Champions between me and the Goodlyfe is still on. There is a letter that was forged by the organisers of 'Buzzy' Signal saying that police has cancelled the Battle for security reasons but having spoken to the top bosses, Kayihura and Kawesi, they have no idea about it."
Just get ready for the Battle because Police cannot cancel a local show over an artist from abroad.
Friday, 08 November 2013
The Goodlyfe Crew are bitter with the Vision Group's CEO, Robert Kabushenga who they claim is having an influence on whether or not the Battle of Champions will be held on Dec 6, 2013 at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds. It should also be noted that on the same day, Jamaican star, Glendale Goshia Gordon aka Busy Signal will be performing at Lugogo Cricket Oval which is just a stone's throw away from Kyadondo.
Both camps are still stuck to their guns and promise that the shows will go on as planned. However, the Goodlyfe Crew through their latest wall post claim that it's Robert Kabushenga who is influencing the cancellation of the Battle in favour of The Busy Signal show.
"So Robert Kabushenga is fighting tooth and nail to influence the Uganda Police to cancel the long awaited 'Battle of Champions' between Radio and Weasel VS. Bebe Cool in favour of a competitive concert on the same day because of his grudges with both the artists."
This is not the first time the Goodlyfe Crew are falling out with Vision Group boss. They composed a song; 'Ba Customer' directly attacking the Vision boss. Their music was later banned from playing on any of the Vision stations that include TVs and Radio stations.
In their post they add: "If Kabushenga is in charge of the youth in Uganda and talent is one of the major exports Uganda has at the moment, which, apparently Kabushenga is fighting in favour of foreign material, you wonder where this country is heading, but we shall fight to the last man if it means so."
The dynamic duo of Moze Radio and Weasel are part of the artistes performing tonight at Bobi Wine's Akalimu/Clean n Out Charity Concert at the Cricket Oval featuring Mr. G from Jamaica.

You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours - Bobi Wine attended Chameleone's Badilisha concert and now Chameleone is paying him in the same currency.
"In a brief meeting with comrades today, the discussion was love amongst ourselves as people sent down by God to entertain. After such inspirational vibe, Iam honored to be invited by Bobi Wine and Mr. G for this anticipated 'Akalimu/Clean and Out' concert, Together we stand and Divided we fall. let's all be there to celebrate music."
Bobi Wine's 'Akalimu Charity Concert' is slated for this Friday at Lugogo Cricket Oval and Mr. G aka Swaggerific is already in town. Standing through the Ghetto Escalade sunroof, Bobi and Mr. G were this morning touring parts of down town Kampala before heading to Serena Hotel where he will be staying during his visit.
Mr. G's Meet and Greet party is on right now at Club Rouge.

Mini Buzz host, Brian Mulondo has quit the show after three years to pursue other plans. "What a thrill it has been gracing your televisions every day of the week. I have met so many individuals, very interesting but also inspiring ordinary Ugandans in the bus," Brian wrote on his wall.
"Now there's been a lot of media reports and speculation from many people that Anne and I were fired from NTV. I would like to categorically state that this is not true. I personally decided to leave the show so that I could have more time to work on moving to another level in my personal and professional life," Brian added.
Brian can still be got on 104.1 Power FM Drive Show between 3-6pm everyday. Contrary to several reports that Brian's co host, Mrs Ojok Anne Kansiime had been fired, she was quick to clear the space;
"My lovery ninjas, kingry note that i have not left minibuzz!! I cant be a risk taker, i can never cheat on you. Yo'll be seeing me every Mon, Wed and Fri pulling my ninja moves."
Marcus will now replace Brian co-hosting the show with Tindi, also a member of the Fun Factory Comedy group. These were some of the comments from the fans to the show:
"Seriously! Anne and Brian made us love the show, I'm so sad and I will surely miss you Brian."
Another wrote: "I tried to watch Minibuzz yesterday but, if my Ninja does not return,I'm done with that show.

This afternoon, Bebe Cool was handing over 50 bags of Cement to the Buganda Kingdom that will be used in the reconstruction of the burnt Kasubi tombs.
Last Friday, Bebe Cool called all the Gagamel members to join him this afternoon at Hardware World in Ntinda to help in loading the bags onto a waiting truck. In the pic, you can see Bebe Cool (yellow T-shirt) with some babe lifting a bag of cement. On top of cement, he added 50 boxes of Hema mineral water.
On the other hand, Bobi Wine who is having a free concert this Friday was also receiving gift items from Uniliver Ltd that included 50cartons of sunlight soap, 18 cartons of vaseline and 15 cartons of geisha soap that will be added to the items for donation to Kasese and Bududa victims.
On the day of Bobi Wine's 'Akalimu Concert' which is free just in case you are not aware, Bebe Cool will be hosting his fans to a 'Facebook Party' in celebration of 100,000 facebook likes.

A source at the Makindye court noted that; "They were not ready to proceed with the case after police had failed to find more evidence pinning him, leaving them with no choice but to set him free."
At the time of his arrest, police spokesperson, Ibin Sekumbi noted that they had two options before them, either to hand him to the Japanese police or to charge him within our courts, they chose the latter and for now, the rest is history.
Fresh from the Head2Head Independence UK show, Iryn is yet to comment on this development. Iryn came back to Kampala on Oct 30 and since then, she has been working on clearing her black Cygnus that was impounded by Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) on the eve of her 'Tebiba Bingi' concert at Hotel Africana.
Here is a tweet from URA confirming the release of Iryn's ride: "Irene Namubiru clears her

The Miss Asia Pacific pageant was held on Oct 30, 2013 at Busan in South Korea. Uganda was represented by Star QT's Stella Nankya though India's Srishti Rana took the day.
Then came Zari who had spent the previous day rehearsing ahead of her performance on the night of the pageant. "Finally putting s3xy fabulous tired self to bed, 2am it is here, gotta be up by 8am lol," Zari tweeted after her rehearsals. At the beauty pageant, she did 'Hotter Than Them', which is one of her best songs out of her playlist.
News of Zari performing at the talent show during the Miss Asia Pacific was faced with mixed reactions back home, some were wondering if she was actually singing while others applauded her on the move saying that she was actually better than some artists here in Uganda.
The mom of three was following closely that space and it did not take her time to retaliate with these words: "To all my haters, thanks for paving my way wouldn't have made it without you. Much love," and then followed by these tweets:
"I made it up out of a worst place than most of you... Literally the bottom... That deserves admiration, instead ... Hate rolls in. Smh!"
"I was taught to make a way out of no way, turn nothing into something, Never let small things get in the way of big opportunities. Always stay intelligent."
Zari is the Ambassador of Miss Asia Pacific World in Africa and that was the main reason she graced the pageant, but having been to studio before, she had to show the guests the other side of her. Of course that is 'rich footage' that can be added to her Reality show that will be hitting telly anytime from now.
"Don't wait on someone else to build your dream life. Be the architect of your own happiness," were her concluding remarks.

Maurice Kirya's Garden City based 'The Sound Cup' is now open after eight years of dreaming and planning.
Many hardworking artists are venturing into business. A few days back, we told of how Sharon O was working on her Blue-Ice Bar and Lounge, and now Maurice Kirya has today (Nov 02) opened 'The Sound Cup' to the public joining a long list of those investing in their future by expanding their brands.
The Sound Cup is located on the third floor at Garden City complex on Yusuf Lule road. If you happen to pass by Garden City today, and feel like having a cup of cappuccino, you might be lucky to be served by Maurice Kirya himself all clad in shades and a chef hat with Omulembe Gwa Kirya music playing in the background.
"My fans can now enjoy coffee and sound in a place they call home," Is a message off the official twitter account for The Sound Cup.
''It has taken me eight years of dreaming about this idea and planning to do it, a place where everyone can feel free, and also enjoy not only good food and drinks but to also be in company of a musical and artistic ambiance!''
The singer, song writer and now waiter is giving other waiters at the Garden City complex a run for their money. He's even contemplating on buying skating shoes on the advise of one of his followers. Maurice is now branded a 'Super Waiter' looking at how he flies while doing his thing.
"By the time you are done with this waiter biz, I doubt if there will be any cups left..lol," one commented.
"He's gonna make a great waiter," another added.

Srishti Rana (21) was crowned Miss Asia Pacific World 2013 on Wednesday beating 49 other contestants that included Uganda's Stella Nankya of the Star QT label.
"Dear all, Miss India has won the MAPW competition. Congrats to her! 2 be honest, I almost cried, however, I'm so happy to have represented Uganda well and thanks for the support." Stella said at the end of the function that was held in Busan, South Korea.
Miriam George from Egypt took the second position while Evgenia Klishina took the third position. It's the second year when India is taking the crown. Last year, Himangini Singh Yadu also from India took the crown.
Meanwhile, socialite Zari graced the star studded function as the MAPW Ambassador for Africa. and also as an artiste. She took a moment off to perform one of her tracks, 'Hotter Than Them'

Trouble stemmed from the local dance-hall artistes like; Guspy Warrior, King Shady and Winky D, who put up a good performance at the Glamis Arena in form of curtain raising and by the time D'Banj got on stage, the local artistes had set the bar so high.
The 'Oliver Twist' singer did his known songs that included: 'Fall in Love', 'Igwe' and 'Why Me' among others and in about 45 minutes, the show had turned to his less known songs. The Nigerian-born singer resorted to inviting twerking dancers on stage to put some hype to the show, but this did little in saving the situation.
It was our very own Bebe Cool who took the day doing some of his hits that included; 'Coccidiosis', 'Trouble', 'Missing You', 'Mambo Mingi' and 'Fitina'. The fans did not know most of the songs, but this did not stop them from dancing and cheering the Gagamel CEO.
One person said: "D'Banj just has two songs (Oliver Twist and Fall in Love) that are popular in Zim and to bring him as the main act for a reputable Festival like Lion Larger Beer fest defies all the fundamental tenets of logic."
After trouncing Nigerian-super star D'Banj, Bebe Cool will be battling the Goodlyfe Crew on Dec 6, 2013.

In the statement, The Tooro Premier, Stephen Kaliba said: "First I would like to request Ugandans at large, kingdom subjects, the media and our Princess to remain calm in this trying time and ask everyone to pray for God’s guidance and wisdom".
"Christopher and Ruth are relatively young and therefore inexperienced in worldly matters, I would therefore like to appeal to the members of the press to give Thomas and Princess Ruth some privacy to recover from this rather unnerving experience"
The premier also urged Thomas to stop using facebook to address the issues at hand. "I also emphatically request Thomas Christopher to desist from using social networks to discuss his marriage affairs. Let him accord respect to both families and keep matters to himself. Going to social media to discuss private family matters does not only injure and cause further pain to themselves as individuals but also to their respective families."
Thomas got wind of this and responded shortly after: "I have nothing against Kingdoms, but they should not rule people. Only The Lord our God does. I sent an email to Bishop Ruben who married us months and months ago and told him Ruth and I are having problems and we need counseling."
In his concluding remark, he wonders why his in laws did not support the counselling process.
"He said he would help but a month later, he wrote to me saying the QM and the Kingdom has refused him to Ruth's number to help us. What mother would refuse a man of God to help a marriage work, I think Ruth loves me but she has the wrong people around her and I feel sorry for her. Ruth has also refused our Pastor in DC to talk with her to help our marriage. I did all I could as a Christian man and as the head to intervene this break up with Christian counsel but Ruth and her mother refused."
Meanwhile, this Thursday, His Majesty King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru Rukidi IV who graduated from the University of Winchester, UK with honors (BA, Business Administration) will be coming back and all are invited to welcome and congratulate him upon this achievement.

Ruth Komuntale's troubled and estranged husband, Christopher Thomas has revealed that he first got married to Ruth in America and then in Uganda. He has also provided a marriage licence dated July 27, 2012 in support of his latest revelations.
However, X-topher is one man who needs help in all this but looks like he is not getting any. First it was the hacking of his account which turned out not to be the case and then he talked of how he was the first one to initiate the divorce proceedings way back in January, but on producing the document, it turns out he has only just started on the process a week back.
In his latest message, Christopher reveals more shocking info: "I told her I want a divorce and, she hacked my account with her cousins making it look like I was bad to her and she was the victim."
Not so sure where this will end but two words, It's Over!
Monday, 28 October 2013
First, he said he was not behind the postings on his wall that branded the Princess of Tooro all sorts of 'things' with claims that his account had been hacked.
This morning, the Princess came up with a dossier saying that she cannot stand an abusive relationship anymore citing one occasion when her husband called her to a hotel room to enjoy a one-million-dollar view only to find him with another woman in a towel looking knackered, implying that they had been at it.
"Before I knew it, he went on Facebook and posted wild and false allegations to damage my reputation and force me to do what he wants," Ruth wrote. In her message, she confirms that Christopher was the person posting what she is terming as humiliating and painful lies.
For now though, Christopher's good looks and charm have not saved him from being dumped and divorce proceedings are underway. However, from his account, he seems to say that he was the one who initiated the divorce process, Ruth never loved me she only wanted a green card.
"I have been in DC working my butt off while Ruth broke butt takes money out of my account. Her family is broke they have no money. Everyone knows this. It's no secret. But Ruth wants to come on here and tell u lies with no proof."
Chris has said a lot which we will skip for now. Talking to one blogger, he said that: "I started on the divorce process in January which takes a year, and now that it's about that time and she is a public figure, they don't like it." He then thanked all those that contributed to their wedding.
"Yes for all the people who gave money for the wedding, I'm sorry but you know how Tooro is run by kids and a mom who don't know what business is and that's in 10 years or less you will see why people in Tooro so against the QM and the brother who likes to stay indoors playing video games but he is doing better now."
Monday, 28 October 2013
Using her wall, Her Royal Highness, Ruth Nsemere Komuntale has come out to clear the space on their love affair with her now ex-husband, Christopher Thomas, which has been the talk of the town.
"I have suffered in silence long enough, and I am tired. I tried to save my marriage numerous times and forgave all his transgressions in vain. I have also worked extremely hard to keep my private life to myself, and avoid making a public spectacle, but I have been left with no choice but to come out and tell the whole truth."
She went on to explain what caused Christopher to humiliate her using his facebook walls. "This week I told Chris we needed a break from our relationship until I could be certain I will never be physically or emotionally abused again. Chris responded by going into a rage, threatened to destroy my reputation and that of my family unless I stayed with him. He gave me an ultimatum to change my mind in five minutes or he would publically humiliate me but I refused to give in to his usual controlling tricks."
In her message, the princess explains how she has been going through physical and emotional abuse in her less than one year marriage. The royal couple was to celebrate their first anniversary next month but based on the current developments, this will not come to pass.
In her message, it's highly unlikely that Ruth and the African American from St Louis, Missouri will ride on the same horse again as she puts it. "Like all marriages, we have had our peaks and valleys that we dealt with privately. However, there are challenges we encountered that cannot be reconciled or easily forgotten."
She signed off asking for privacy, prayers and support. "I kindly ask you for your prayers and support. I also ask the media to allow me some privacy as I embark on a healing process."
Sunday, 27 October 2013
Princess Ruth Komuntale's husband, Christopher Thomas has come out to say that hackers got into his facebook profile and used it to hurl bitter words to the princess of Tooro.
"I will not go into detail of how someone got my password but things happen and God bless them for all this. We learn and forgive," was Christopher's message to the scammers.
It was widely believed that the the royal couple was no more but Chris and Ruth don't believe in divorce and today being a Sunday, he simply asked everyone who believed in them to include them in their prayers.
"Is Ruth and I over? We are married and God willing we will stay that way. I don’t believe in divorce and Ruth feels the same way. The big thing is long distance is a B and you have to be a strong person for that. Are we strong? time will tell, but I thank you for reading, understand and praying for Ruth and I."
In his message, he concludes that not because he's not wearing his wedding ring that it means all is not well in their camp:
"Just because people change their names on facebook and don't wear rings everyday doesn’t mean things are bad it just means we like to change up. So today is Sunday and I ask everyone to forgive, forget, and let God. Say a prayer for Ruth and I as everyone wanted this marriage to work and God wiling it will. Thanks Duke Christopher Amooti Thomas”
The royal couple will be celebrating their second anniversary next month. The official facebook page for the princess is currently off while Chris has reactivated his account which had been pulled down after it being flooded with posts of those who were firing back.

Yesterday was the Black Entertainment, Film, Fashion, Television and Arts (BEFFTA) 2013 awards that were held at The Hippodrome in London. Comedian Anne Kansiime emerged the winner of 'Best Comedian' beating the likes of Richard Blackhood and Don't Jelous Me among others.
In her acceptance speech, Anne used a strong Western Uganda accent stating how much she valued the award and the more reason she came in person. On her wall, she wrote: "I won my dearest Ninjas!! Thank you so much for the love!! I swear, I will not cheat on you."
This has been Anne's year. Just a few days back, she was introducing her lover, Gerald to her parents in Kasese something that got her fans excited though it took time for some to actually know that it was real and not a comedy stint
In a related development, Jose Chameleone has also won a BEFFTA award beating last year's winner, Juliana Kanyomozi to take the 'Best International Act'.
"It's hard to fully express my gratitude towards all of you who appreciate my music, and love African music at large. You are the reason I have managed to add another on to my list and rankings. Am fresh and still jubilating with you this joyous feeling in me, I congratulate my fans worldwide, we did this together," Chameleone said while thanking his fans worldwide
Ex Tusker Project Fame contestant, Grey Naava was among the nominees for the 'Best International Act'.

Communicating the good news, Carol wrote that: "Good news from the pearl of Africa. My heart Weasel Goodlyfe just adopted a little prince called Alvin, I'm so in love with our first born."
Different people adopt for different reasons and notable among them is infertility which is certainly not the case for Weasel as he is already blessed with enough. Other reasons could be for charity or offering a home to the homeless.We are yet to establish why Weasel has chosen to be an adoptive parent.
In July, we told of how Carol Accepted Weasel's Kids saying that: "Kids are beautiful they are innocent and bring nothing other than peace, for that, love them regardless of where, when and how they were conceived. The truth is they never asked for their arrival. Respect the baby mom as well as the baby father after all it's support of the new generation."
In that message, Carol seems to say that 'nothing can come between us' not even the number of kids. However, she expressed too much love for Alvin, the adopted son and yet we have not seen her do the same to Weasel's biological children.
Meanwhile, Bebe Cool in his Tuesday press conference did not skip the issue of Weasel's kids. He said that; Weasel has seven kids from seven women compared to him who has four, so these boys have more experience than me in that 'thing'.

In one of her tweets, she said: "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful, hate me because I eat whatever I want and still wear the same size pants that I did in high school."
Many who look up to the Forest Mall based, JHFYS owner as their role model spend time in the gym just to shed off extra weight, some even have small portions of food just to get that 'size' that will rock runways, but like the ex-model says, she eats whatever she wants and several years down the line, she still weighs the same kgs.
Now with fast food restaurants like Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Uganda just about to open in Kampala at the new Acacia Mall in Kololo and the new Village Mall in Bugolobi, the love for chicken is likely to surpass that of modeling forcing some of her followers to gain rather than lose weight.
Speaking to one publication, Judith Heard (JH) was concerned about models in Uganda being paid peanuts as the agencies took the biggest share that came out of their efforts.

Chameleone who is watching that move closely has also announced that he will be battling West Africa's Davido on 20 December, 2013 in what he's calling the 'Battle of the Titans'. Davido is known for hits like 'Skelewu'.
Communicating about this development, the 'Tubonge' singer said: "Battle of the Titans W. Africa Davido VS. Chameleone E. Africa music Clash 20th Dec Kampala,"
Bebe Cool's camp was quick to belittle the move saying that they set the trend and now Chameleone's camp is following in their footsteps. "Chameleone is having sleepless nights from the time he learnt of Bebe Cool battling with D'Banj in the 'Battle of Africa," one wrote.
The rivalry between musicians has been on and it's not about to stop. It's something they use to garner publicity though one has to be careful how they play their cards not to end up being remembered less for their music and more for attacking fellow artistes.
Tuesday, 22 October 2013
At 2:00pm prompt, Bebe Cool who was at the venue early enough started off by thanking the press and the Gagamel phamily members that were present. Bebe Cool did not leave out the sponsors that included Nation Media Group, Darling and PEPSI.
Bebe Cool started off by letting all those present that this was the second press briefing on the Battle of the Champions. "The first one was last week but I didn't see it in the news may be because they (Goodlyfe Crew) don't make news," Bebe said attracting loud screams from his camp.
The Gagamel Boss then switched to the question-and-answer session. Some of the questions were stemming from the Goodlyfe Crew press briefing that had been held last week. Bebe Cool was accused by the Goodlyfe Crew for not knowing English because he says Kokodiosis instead of Coccidiosis.
His response to this was: "I had to come up with a simpler word that the majority could easily relate to. The people who know the English and can pronounce the word Coccidiosis don't even have the money and they never come for these concerts." The Goodlyfe Crew don't know English, you all remember when they were being interviewed during the BET Awards.
Bebe Cool also used the moment to respond to the talk that he was their grandfather. "These boys are not young either. Radio has four children from four women. Weasel has 7 children from seven women so they are not young. Secondly, when they displayed their 'FIRST' US visas on facebook, it clearly revealed that they are above 29."
"I have one wife with three children and another child with one. This means that they are even more experienced than me in that thing", Bebe said. He then brought in the issue of Zuena, again a concern from the Goodlyfe who said that he fronts his wife instead of music.
On this one, Bebe said that he was proud of Zuena and in fact she is more popular than him. "Out of the very many women that Radio has, we only know of Lilian, and he is not even proud to show her off implying that there is a problem. As for Weasel, of the seven women, we don't even know of any."
Bebe Cool revealed that he is in talks with the police to let them perform up to 3am. "You gonna be excited on that day because you will not believe what I'm going to do to you," Bebe concluded before attending to individuals and photo sessions.

According to judge Hermes, the Ugandan duo needed more voice coaching. The other reasons cited for putting up the rest on probation included: failing out on beat control, misinterpretation of the song and lack of confidence.
Uganda is still doing well with fans across East Africa putting their money on our very own, Daisy Ejang, who did justice to Bonnie Raitt’s 'I Can't Make You Love Me.' Judging from the tweets that followed, it's clear that Daisy was the best performer of the night.
To vote for Under Cover Brothers send: Type Tusker 8 and send to 8338. Meanwhile, judge Juliana was not available as she was recovering from last Friday's 'Edibba' concert that was held at Kampala Serena Hotel. Tweeting her fans, Juliana said that she will be back for TPF6 next week.

According to the Goodlyfe Crew, this is a 'Battle' between the retired undisputed king of PAM awards VS. BET nominees. On Tuesday, as the rest were enjoying the Public holiday, the Goodlyfe Crew convened a press briefing at Cacia Lodge in Buziga. During the meeting, they said that Bebe Cool will for the first time perform for a large crowd and they hope that this time around, he can complete his house.
The Gagamel boss has now shot back. "These little singers call themselves young and yet they are both above 29 with over four kids each. Public opinion says they are good musically, so they get a ticket to battle the Big Man. I would like to congratulate Radio and Wizolo (read Weasel) on this achievement."
Bebe Cool added: "I have given you a chance to taste the best of times. Young kids always see the colours of pepper and they want to taste it, but not until they do, they never know how hot it is." You had better stock plenty of water or better still ask the man from Magele (Bobi Wine) who nearly chocked.
The Goodlyfe Crew camp is looking at this as no Battle at all. Goodlyfe VS. Gagamel is like BET awards VS. PAM awards or Landlords VS. The Tenant.
Meanwhile, Bebe Cool's press briefing of the music battle is tomorrow (Oct 22) at Alfredoz bar in Bukoto starting at 1pm.

On 6.Nov.2012, the couple was blessed with a baby boy four months after their introduction at her parents home in Lungujja. Matthew took off a moment after exchanging the vows and tweeted this: "Just went down, feels good."
Maurice Kirya promised to perform a song for the two love birds. "Off to Matthew and Eleanor Nabwiiso's wedding! Two amazing actors! And yes ama have to sing a song for these love birds tonight, " Maurice wrote on his wall.
It should be noted at this point that Helen Lukoma is Eleanor's elder sister in the Hostel play. She is engaged to Dean Nsubuga, also an actor in the Hostel Drama series. The two got engaged last year and just two weeks back, she was celebrating her belated birthday at Guvnor and at the end of it all, she said that it was high time she got a baby as age was catching up.
Helen Lukoma acts as 'Patra' in the Hostel series. Following their engagement last year, Helen and Dean will be the second couple coming out of the Hostel.

Juliana hit the stage at exactly 8:30pm doing 'Nabikoowa' followed by 'Mundeke' with crowds singing along. "It's so nice to see all of you here, Thank you for coming. It's six years since I last had a concert," Juliana said. The event featured Brian Mugenyi who thrilled fans with his saxophone and guitarist Myco Ouma.
Others included Moses Matovu of Afrigo Band. Juliana's concert lasted for two hours doing songs like 'Kanyimbe', 'Kibaluma', 'Nkyanoonya' and 'Mpita Njia' among others. She also performed her latest, 'Nakupenda'. At some point, Victoria hall was turned to as dance floor as the show was coming to an end.
Kick-boxer, Moses Golola of Uganda joined Juliana doing his kick-boxing dance strokes. Juliana thanked her entire team that she worked with to come up with a success full concert. "Workin with each one of u has made me a better artist. I'm so proud to be associated with u. Thank u."
At the end of it all, Juliana did not forget her fans who have been there for her all these years. "I don't know how to thank you all. It's beyond words. Thank you for the love you showed me. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to entertain you. It's such a thrill."

The 'Akalimu' concert is the first of it's kind and a unique opportunity for music lovers who could otherwise be left out for not having money to part with for the show. It's the first concert that a Ugandan artiste has put up and not having to charge a penny as entry fees.
In most cases, it has always been that part of the proceeds go to charity but on this particular concert, one is required to come with clothes, sugar, soap or food that will be donated to the affected communities. "People lost lives, property and their livelihood. It is now time to remember our own people and do something they will never forget." Bobi Wine said in a statement.
The Bududa landslides and the Kasese floods among others were the driving force behind this bold move. Bobi Wine's wife, Barbie rallied behind him through this message: "We give what we can and you too can do the same. Sacrifice something and give a hand. Agali awamu gegaluma enyama!" meaning; together we can!
However, much as the show is free, this does not give the revellers access to the platinum and VIP section as they will be strictly on invite only basis. One top Fire Base Crew female fan who recently got a 'Firebase' tattoo will certainly win herself a platinum and also get a special mention as a top fan.
It's important to note that Chameleone and Bebe Cool held their 'Badilisha' and 'Kokodiosis' concerts which were both successful but Akalimu will be one show and it will be FREE!

"Ms Shanita Namuyimbwa has been living in Rwanda for two months now after arriving from Bangkok, Thailand in July 2013. She is wanted in Uganda for embezzlement of millions of dollars from her British ex-lover David Greenhalgh." Rwanda Police spokesperson ACP Damas Gatare said in a statement.
Bad Black was later in the day released on bond. Trust her, she quickly dashed to her smart phone to update her facebook wall claiming that she was in Singapore and not Rwanda. Bad Black also used the moment to scoff at those who wondered how one could hide in Rwanda and yet an arrest warrant had been issued next door.
The news of Bad Black's arrest dominated all TV's and radio stations plus social networking sites. Newspapers on Thursday (Oct 17) hit stands with Bad Black on the front page.
Uganda's police spokesperson, Judith Nabakooba said that they were working hand in hand with their counterparts in Rwanda to have her extradited to Uganda where a number of charges have been raised against her.

I'm Peter (Musizi Wa Langi), is a line off a DuraCoat TV advert which simply means, Peter the Painter.
Peter Miles was spotted doing exactly that. It's not clear if the men whose responsibility to do this were not doing the job so well or Peter is just obsessed with painting and this must be his favourite activity. Otherwise not even the painters would allow him to render them redundant.
Given the affordable labour, Do It Yourself (DIY) is not the in thing for many, in fact even for the simplest task possible, experts or professionals will always be called in to fix whatever mess. Looking at the 'Frontline' star doing his thing, you could clearly see that he was enjoying every bit of it.
"Designing my gate, he wrote." Now this is a mega saving looking at how much has been waved by him doing it as opposed to hiring one expert from around 'Musa Body University of Technology'
One Commented: "That's the way to go, save your millions."

Have you not seen a woman in a bikini before, Zari Asks!
On Monday, socialite Zari spent a greater part of the day enjoying a hot tub as she took her drink prompting these words from one of her close pals; 'That is too chilaxing' (meaning chill and relaxing) at the same time. The mom-of-three responded to her comment that: "Me and luxury speak the same language."
That seemed to be okay for the moment. Minutes later, she received comments from a host of followers who didn't seem to like the move. It's important to note that, earlier, she had just made a post about her boobs to which she said were still firm even after having three kids.
This led to a heated argument with some wondering why she had to get to this extent. "Attention seeking at it's best.." is what most were writing while others listed some of the highlights from the socialite that range from her music career, reality show, the Lamborghini and now the famous hot tub that have set tongues wagging.
Using her wall, she had this to say: "Total chilaxing in my spare time and y'all have such negative things to say. What exactly have you seen? I bet some of you have barely seen women in bikinis or swim wear, some would never probably survive in Miami. Those who are backward should style up. Any westernized person wouldn't be bothered by my pics!"

All the contestants from Uganda made it to the academy and these include: Derrick Kojo, Undercover Brothers, Daisy Ejang and Sitenda Kisakye. The underCover brothers (Kakiika Abdul and Kirya John) did a rendition of Craig David's 'Walking Away' putting a bit of Luganda in it. The fans got into a heated argument on which group did better between Uganda and Kenya.
Kojjo did Maurice Kirya's Mulembe Gwa Kirya while Sitenda nailed Mr. Jaila by Asa. Sitenda's voice was being compared to last year's winner Ruth Matete by a host of fans and going by her first performance, she is promising, but this being day one, it looks like too early to judge but so far so good.
The show was live on Urban TV and Citizen TV. Our very own Juliana Kanyomozi, and the no nonsense Ian Mbugua plus Hermy B were the judges. The hosts for the show were none other than Dr. Mitch Egwang and Joey Muthengi, though being her first time, a section of fans seemed to prefer Sheila Mwayingha.
The other contestants include: Phiona and Patrick from Rwanda, Hope from Burundi, Bior from South Sudan, Angel and Hisia from TZ and the Kenyan housemates include: Jenipher, Mishel, Amos&Josh, Fess and Sueoncey.
In the end, fans from Uganda were treated to a free opening gala show at Club Silk which had Tusker Lager on the house plus perfromances from artistes like Cindy Ssanyu.

Hip Hop star, Daniel Kigozi aka Navio has lashed out at his 'haters' in an angry facebook rant.
Navio who has just released his latest track, 'On and On', a collaboration with American RnB singer, Keith Sweat is so bitter with a section of people he refers to as 'haters'. He claims that instead of supporting artistes, they end up with a foot in their mouth as he explains below:
"The big challenge is individuals going out of their way to undermine artists. Every artist has people dedicated to this cause of undermining them."
He goes on to explain; "For example, I was excluded from the line up for R-Kelly’s show. A year later, he was mixing me drinks at his pool bar in his Chicago house. And we were about to hit the studio."
Cruises Akon's Lamborghini - "Next I was purposefully excluded from the Akon show. Next thing you know I’m in his Lamboghini driving around Atlanta a month ago."
And finally, in the just concluded Nile Gold Jazz Safari that had Keith Sweat as one of the performers at Kampala Serena Hotel, Navio was told that he won't attend, perform or see Keith Sweat as he explains:
"Next at Keith Sweat, I was told I wouldn’t be able to attend, perform or see him. Keith lands, calls me up for lunch. He demands seats for me at the show, then to really make these guys feel angry, he calls me on stage at the climax of the show."
He wraps up: "The moral is, God's plan always prevails and it is better to help your artists rather than to end up with a foot in your mouth. Like every other country in Africa, be proud and help your artists. Our victories are yours."
Do not be a slave to your bitterness. Promote your culture as he signed off.

Ex Big Brother Star, Singer and Mother of One, Sharon O is in advanced stages of launching her Leisure centre, Blue-Ice Bar and Lounge that is located right opposite Quality Supermarket in Naalya.
Sharon O is following in the footsteps of fellow ex-Big Brother star, Gaetano Kaggwa (BBA1) who also owns a bar in Bugolobi. "It will be a place for all kinds of gatherings ranging from weddings, birthday parties, concerts, graduation parties, anniversaries and the likes," Sharon said.
The whole of last week, the 'Mpola Mpola' singer was busy supervising the progress of the construction work at the soon to-be-opened lounge. It's been a busy week, love the progress, we are kicking off soon, "Sharon who will be recording her latest 'Ani' video tomorrow noted.
This is a good step considering that some celebs have had big plans for a while now that are yet to take off, a case in point is the Bebe Cool Wine and the Zari Magazine.

The pageant will help Stella show case her designs on a global platform if she wins. In the shots above, Stella is show casing a red plain dress and the print one which she designed.

The VIP section was full though half of the concert area remained empty till the end of the show. The lighting, stage, security were all top notch. The 'Birowoozo' singer shared the stage with Khalifa Aganaga, Dr. Hilderman, Liane and Rema who knelt to thank the fans for having turned up for Iryn's show, but also requested them not to forget her Kukaliba Concert slated for Oct 18, 2013.
Iryn got on stage at about 10:30pm to do several of her hits ranging from 'Begombeko', 'Yono', 'Lwaki' and 'Bona Obasinga' among others, mimed Makoma's 'Butu Na Moyi' claiming It's her source of inspiration. Yesterday, she was at Mukono Satellite Beach and today, all roads will lead to Water Front Beach in Entebbe.
However, some music pundits are looking at it from a different perspective. Some say, they are quite many functions at the same time. For example, on the same day (Oct 4) , American RnB singer, Keith Sweat was at Kampala Serena Hotel performing at the Nile Gold Jazz Safari. This can equally have an impact on the numbers.
"The lonely nights are over!" Iryn tweeted after the Mukono show. Whatever that statement meant, it left a lot to be desired.

On Tuesday, Chameleone went to Central African Republic as a music militant to deliver a message to Joseph Kony who is also one of his fans, and as we write, Kony has added Chameleone's latest gospel single; 'Tubonge' to his play list. In Kenya, Tubonge means let's talk and here in Uganda, it's a fist bump or form of handshake.
"Your Mama, Baba and family is waiting for you, Don't suffer out there thinking nobody cares for you, It's been long since you've been gone, what a sight seeing you come home. You are more than welcome home, we got a lot together to do, " was part of Chameleone's message to the LRA leader.
Chameleone's peace mission got his fans excited about the bold move he had taken. "I am simply a Ugandan waiting for my brothers in the LRA to come home. You are forgiven. It is time for peace." Chameleone concluded before embarking on his next trip to South Sudan where he was set to launch his 'Tubonge' hit.
The Badilisha singer was performing at Nyakuron Stadium on Friday night and among the songs he did was Tubonge.

Do you love your kids to the extent of branding your skin permanently with their names, that's what Chameleone's wife, Daniella Atimango Mayanja did a few days back. Daniella has all the three names of her kids; Abba, Alfa and Alba on her left shoulder blade.
Chameleone who went for a few hours to Central African Republic on a peace mission wrote that: 'True love never hides, family business' as he shared his wife's tat.
Zari has the initials of her three boys at the back of her neck while Sheila Ferguson (Rabadaba's Ex) has inked 'Kyle' on her right arm and 'Tabzy' on her upper thigh, though Zari might have to do a bit of explaining for some of the tattoos if the kids happen to land on them.
Bobi Wine's wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi inked her entire back with a portrait of her boo. This was Barbie's present to Bobi on their wedding day and thanking him for the love.

Star singer Joseph Mayanja aka Chameleone is off for a show to the Central African Republic (CAR) just hours after releasing his latest Swahili gospel single; 'Tubonge'. Fans across Africa are looking forward to it especially the countries where he has been recently like Zambia, Congo and Malawi among others.
The singer is currently nursing a sprained foot but this has not affected his schedule in any way. He is still a force to reckon even while performing in one position if his last performance at the Resort Beach in Buloba is anything to go by. Clad in a Michael Jackson 'BAD' jacket, the Tubonge singer left fans yearning for more. The message was clear, He's Bad!
Before taking off to Central African Republic where the Lords Resistance Army (LRA) leader and also his namesake, Joseph Kony, is believed to be hiding, the 'Badilisha' singer was positive that through his music, he could easily get to talk to the war lord and convince him to pursue peaceful means.
"As I leave for Central African Republic this morning, I want to thank my fans worldwide for sending me to duties that can make us all proud. It's the most relevant issue now. KONY 2012, and as a Music militant am off to meet My UGANDAN folk.. For we nationalists we know that PEACE is the way forward. I'm proud to be part of this revolutionary transition-KONY 2012," Chameleone wrote.
A few days back, the Lango Paramount Chief, Yosam Odur, offered Kony free land for him to come and settle if only he could abandon the war and crimes against humanity.

Last Saturday was 'Zari's Birthday Bash' on turning 33 and all went well except for the fight at the end. It kicked off with a birthday cruise which saw all guests drink, dance and party as they enjoyed the ride. Like it is the case for Zari's parties, there was flowing champagne on this one too.
At the end of the birthday cruise, it was time for the after party. During the after party, Zari had to cut and serve the guests with a Louis Vuitton cake. The mom of three accentuated her curves in a cream tight dress and straight on dashed for pole-dancing, something that left many of her male guests yearning for more.
Then came the issue of only playing Naija music and yet Zari loves a bit of 'Valu-Valu' and 'Badilisha' in her flow, so she had to hit the DJ box to see if DJ Scratch could play some UG music but unfortunately, that's where she met this guy, a Congolese who had gate crashed and was busy complementing her; and to make matters worse, he was doing what Ivan does best - dishing out cash to the ladies who were strutting their stuff for him.
This did not go down well with the party host and also Zari's husband, Ivan Ssemwanga who was quick to rough up this 'intruder' with the help of his boys. A source at the party had this to say in relation to the fight:
"The Congolese guy was with some South African friends busy throwing cash to the gals something that attracted Ivan to find out who he was and it was during this time that a fight broke out. Zari had to leave the boys to sort themselves now that it was her day, she wasn't going to let it be ruined for some reason."
Short of that, the party went on well and all those who attended, speak volumes about how well organised it was.

The Blessings star was last week in Nairobi at the Impala grounds for the Oktober fest beer festival and on being done, the 'Frontline' star then flew to Dubai with his yet-to-be identified babe.
The couple has since been exploring each other while at Jumeirah Beach hotel and in the deserts. Yesterday was his birthday but he admits that it's been one of his best ever after partying in style. Peter Miles thanked all his pals that wished him a happy one through his wall;
"Now this has been one of the craziest and most fascinating b.d ive had took one of those crazy desert rides these guys drive like lunatics car almost flipped and later the driver tells me these cars actually flip at times but no one dies hmmmm........apart from the nausea after the ride had a great time.....nuff luv to all my lovely pips who wished me a hapi birthday I truly had one."
We've had quite a number of birthday celebrations in the recent past. Zari was celebrating on a boat cruise with friends and family in South Africa, Barbie and her boo took to gun shooting lessons while Desire just got stuck @25 and when it came to the Kokodiosis singer, Bebe Cool, chicken wings and Zuena pastries cakes were flowing non stop.
Below are photos of Peter Miles and his boo on holiday in Dubai.

Chameleone has made a comment concerning his health condition. Leone Island fans have for the last two days been in shock wondering how their super star will perform while confined in a wheel chair.
I'm not in a terrifying condition as you put it, I only got a minor sprain which had to be checked.
"I am the Challenge that makes them talk, when they feel no hope to out challenge this unstoppable Multi Talented, lanky, African Superstar. Like the principle to fruitful destiny goes, works NOT words! I am aiming at being better everyday No matter what they say - I have this driving force I can't help - MUSIC."
The 'Badilisha' star is busy perfecting his saxophonist skills with the help of Jazz maestro Isaiah Katumwa, so the Leone Island fans should keep it locked for what will come out of his newly acquired skills.
Meanwhile, Chameleone, Juliana Kanyomozi and Naava were a few days back nominated in the BEFFTA 2013 awards.

Weasel and his Norway based girlfriend, Carol Serwadda, are on holiday busy catching up on lost time. The two love birds were spotted this morning on a holiday escape at Chobe Safari Lodge located at the Murchison Falls National Park.
The couple kept fans updated throughout the day. No doubt, the 2013 BET Nominee, Weasel Doug is enjoying every second with Carol next to him as he confirms on his wall. "River Nile flowing just close to my balcony this morning....enjoying."
Carol changed her facebook status to reflect engaged on the very day the Goodlyfe Crew were nominated in the 2013 BET Awards. Next on their agenda was the introduction ceremony. It's not yet clear if the introduction ceremony could be the reason for her visit this time around, but what is clear though is that, the couple is having fun.
Weasel and Carol met during the Goodlyfe's Euro tour early this year and since then, their love has been growing. The Goodlyfe Crew performed in South Africa during the Big Brother Africa The Chase show and Carol was with Weasel just to ensure that the South African babes don't come close now that her boo is a global brand courtesy of the BET Nominations.

Youth Minister Opens a Twitter account to clear the space that he was misunderstood.
While speaking to youth from Kajara Development Cooperative Savings Society in Ntungamo District a few days back, State Minister for Youth and Children Affairs, Hon. Ronald Kibuule was among others concerned about the way young people dress these days.
In his speech, the 29-year-old minister with two wives and also MP for Mukono North talked about the mini skirts and the sagging trousers, but the outburst came in when he said that police officers should not even listen to women who come reporting a case of rape and are skimpily dressed, it's as though they are asking to be raped.
Radio stations, Newspapers and social networks had the minister featured as a news item and a topic of discussion yesterday. The Uganda Youth Minister felt that the best way to reverse this was to open up a Twitter account and clarify his position, which he did.
On opening up, these were some of the statements:
"Never in my address did I okay rape against women, instead I advised the young people to always dress decently."
"I will continue to preach respect for the girl child and women not only as Minister but also as a Member of Parliament, father and husband."
"I had a +ve engagement with youth from Ntungamo discussing employment but unfortunately the Monitor press distorted my statement"
This is when Daily Monitor came up with the audio version of what the Minister said and since then, the 23-hour-old account with a total of 43 tweets, all about what he said vis-a-vis what he meant has not seen any new tweets in the last 19 hours.

Barbara Kyagulanyi has a Bobi Wine's portrait all over her back and that is all the Ghetto Gladiator looks at when she is on her tummy.
The latest info before us is that a one Hilder Mayanja has gone to extremes and inked herself with a 'Firebase' tattoo confirming just how much love she has for the 'Akalimu' singer. Looks like this is crossing to the level of football fans having tattoos of their favourite teams.
When Bobi Wine got wind of this, this is what he had to say: "If you think you love Fire Base Crew... and you are a number one fan of his excellency Bobi Wine..think twice..One lover and real lover of the Ghetto republic just got herself a 'Firebase Crew' tattoo on her leg, respect Hilder, Firebase Salutes you Madam."
''New tat Firebase all the way," Hilder said after sharing the tattoo pictures. This is just how obsessed this fan is about Bobi Wine's Fire Base Crew and probably the first one expressing that much love for one of our local stars.

Socialite Zari Hassan has turned 33 today. On this day last year, the two lovers (Zari and Ivan) were having issues like they normally do and the very last one was when Sharon O joined the love triangle but the split did not last. The mom of three is now back to her husband. The two rekindled their old love in the UK a few weeks back.
Zari is now bent on none other than her All White Ciroc Party that will be held at Guvnor on 19 December, 2013. Entertainment will be by a surprise guest according to the poster, but information from her camp indicates that talks are underway of bringing in Sean Combs.
In other news, Zari re-activated her facebook account a day before her birthday. The issue of Sharon O and Ivan dating affected her so badly that among others, she had to deactivate her account temporarily to allow the Sharon O dust to settle and indeed it has.

The 'Blessings' star and the 'Total Satisfaction' singer were part of the artists that performed at the German based beer festival, Oktoberfest which was launched in Nairobi yesterday. Cindy has for the past several days been calling out to her fans in Kenya to come and get a feel of her music but in the end, she ended up dedicating the show to the West Gate Victims.
"I'm in Nairobi baby. Beautiful city. I'm set to rock the Octoberfest tonight at the Impala Grounds live tonight. Final call to all music fans in Kenya. Don't miss this one," Cindy wrote before the attack.
The situation in Nairobi changed following the attack on WestGate Shopping Mall, Cindy decided to dedicate the show to the survivors and families that were affected: "I wanna dedicate my show tonight to all the survivors and families that have been affected by the gunmen who have invaded Westgate Mall Emmanuel, God is with us."
Peter Miles was also with Uganda's neighbours at this trying moment: "Very sad about the tragedy that befell my Kenyan brothers and sisters Yesterday and today but besides the terror attacks thanks for the love you showed me and I couldn't let those cowards spoil our show massive thanks and luv for all ya that turned up at Impala grounds the show was maaad my prayers with you."
President Uhuru Kenyatta's nephew and his nephews fiancee were among the 59 who lost their lives at the Westgate attack yesterday. UgandaOnline.Net extends it's heartfelt condolences to all the victims of the attack and Kenyans at large, #WeAreOne.

Some were even questioning how she could audition aspiring musicians when she was not into music herself but a few days back, she released her latest single; 'Lay You Down', whose video is already out and not forgetting the popular 'Jangu' video by the Obsessions girl group back then, Cleo as she is fondly called was one of them.
For quite sometime, Cleo was linked to Dance-Hall maestro and Radio Block Studio boss, Peter Miles of the 'Blessings' fame but looks like the two could not ride on the same horse anymore after over 16 years of being close friends. Cleo actually told her close pals recently that when the time is ripe, you will know who the special person is.
Looks like that time was on August 05, 2013 when she unveiled former Mr. Kenya, Lwanda Jawar with these lines: "I thank God for the gift of Love. Without it, we would be cold. I’m blessed to have a wonderful man in my life. Lwanda, thank u for Loving me & making me appreciate life more. I love u! May God always be with us in our union."
Cleo and Lwanda are both in the KONA Africa Magic TV series and chances are; that's where the chemistry developed and the next thing they knew, they were in love. In KONA series, Lwanda acts as Wanjala and Cleo acts as Jakki. You can catch them in action every Monday to Friday on Africa Magic at 19:30EAT.

''We need God in this time - more so in these times of judgement.'' Chameleone wrote on his wall as he alerted his fans of what was in store for them.
Those words of inspiration from Chameleone do not come as a surprise bearing in mind that the last few days have robbed him of his valuable time as he tried to go through the over 3,000 comments that were generated from Bebe Cool's posts regarding his shifting from Muyenga.
Some music pundits have already predicted more music to come out from the recent bickering. Others say that the music stars could be in studios already recording their latest tracks generated from the recent online wars.
This has come at a time when his 'Nimakwanisa' collabo with Zambia's Mampi is doing rounds on airwaves across Africa. In the song, Mampi's Luganda is so eloquent that you could easily confuse her for a Ugandan but no, its none other than Miriam Mukape aka Mampi, Zambia's RnB singer.
In the 'Nimakwanisa' song, the two artistes are encouraging women to work hard as opposed to just sitting home.

As Chameleone and Bebe Cool were busy sorting themselves on whose house is incomplete and who is staying at their in-laws, Bobi Wine was deep in rehearsals for The Ebonies latest play, 'Ensabattula' that will be showing in London (Manor Park Royal Regency Hall) on Sept 28, 2013 and on October 5, 2013, at Dhow Palace Hotel in Dubai.
Bobi Wine has also been coordinating a series of activities that range from preparing for the forthcoming KCCA Carnival following his endorsement as the Kampala Capital City Carnival Celebrity. On the same day, he carried out the Ghetto voice search and later in the day,he joined his wife to watch their Ghetto Reality show on Bukedde TV. A drink-up with his fans followed at Plat4fm Club in Kamwokya.
The Ghetto gladiator then wrapped up the day with the announcement of the 'Akalimu' Concert using Bebe Cool's line; 'Elyaato Lyakabenje' that is aimed at Bobi Wine with his yacht. This announcement was timely as it was meant to try and divert attention from Bebe Cool and Chameleone wars that had taken over the social network sites by storm but it was not easy.
"..... Kale no'lwensonga eyo, buli ategede ategeeze munne, nti Nannyini LYAATO ELYAKABENJE ategese LAUNCH EYAKABENJE nga 8 e KYADONDO. Ebisingako awo, mubilinde ku CNN," Bobi Wine noted on his wall about the forthcoming concert.
The 'Akalimu' singer has now asked the Fire Base Crew fans to mark their calendars for the Clean and Out Akalimu Concert that will be held on November 8, 2013 at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds. Mr. G, Version from Jamaica and Zambia's Mampi will perform on that day.

Depending on how it all goes down, the record producer, actor and entrepreneur could be in Kampala this December to grace the Zari All White Party that will be held at the posh Ange-Noir based Guvnor night spot. Champagne will be flowing the whole night long like it has always been at the previous parties. Proceeds for the night will be donated to charity.
A few days back, Zari was trying out white outfits as she prepares for the December party and then came across this white Brooklyn T-shirt. Zari says that this is the sexiest T-shirt she has ever rocked! as she enjoyed coffee in her kitchen.
Brooklyn was the word on the T-shirt. Zari and her husband Ivan Semwanga are the proprietors of Brooklyn City Colleges with about six branches in South Africa.

Initially, this was between Chameleone and the Bukedde Newspaper after they published one of their lead stories that the Badilisha singer had relocated to his in-laws in Mutungo.
Bebe Cool has continued to use this opportunity to get at the music doctor in every way. Yesterday, he offered him one of his unfinished apartments in Kiwatule, an offer that Jose Chameleone turned down by saying that bad mouthing him does not make him (Bebe Cool) wiser but more of a fool.
Surprisingly, this comment was even liked by Moze Radio bearing in mind that early this year, Moze Radio was wondering why police had taken long to have Chameleone arrested for the alleged murder of Karamagi.
Today(Sep 17), in what Bebe Cool is terming as "For His Fans Only", he has striked Chameleone once again in the message below:
"So surprising when people don't want you to say facts about their artists but when it's about Bebe Cool, they fuss. Now this is strictly for my fans. Life is simple when you make it simple for yourself. My neighbour wakes up in the morning and marries in a chopper, claims he is number 6 of Africa's richest artistes but before the year ends, he's off to staying with his father in law."
Bebe Cool even hints on the issue of Karamagi in which he never commented but he adds that on the issue of Chameleone relocating to his in-laws cannot just pass and in fact, he says; it's an abomination because it impacts negatively on Buganda's marriage morals.
Bebe Cool concludes by asking what happened to the Daniella Villaz that were bought earlier on? "I will never let artistes lie to Ugandans anymore. It's not good for the upcoming artistes." as he signed off in today's post.
Tuesday, 17 September 2013
"It's quite a pity to a comrade who up to now has failed to make a self analysis and discover that bad mouthing me doesn't make him a wiser one except a fool. In everyone's life lies challenges that we encounter to be better next day. That's my way of understanding. That's how the world revolves. Just a leaf of advice: I AM ME AND CAN NEVER BE YOU and vice versa, so put your energy in what is important to you and your family coz I got mine too, " Chameleone wrapped up the matter on his wall.
A few days before Chameleone's Malawi trip, he shifted from his Muyenga rented pad to a more spacious house in Mutungo something that got Bebe Cool so excited. As he performed in Mbarara, he made it a point that he alerts his fans with what was going on just in case they were not aware. He read to them the article in Bukedde newspaper about Chameleone's shifting.
On Monday morning (Sep 16), Bukedde made Bebe Cool the topic of the day by saying that Chameleone's fans were about to beat him up for belittling their artiste and yet he was actually a renter in a two bed-room house. This rubbed Bebe the wrong way and using his wall, he unleashed his wrath on both Bukedde and Chameleone.
In his post, Bebe noted that it was Bukedde that had ashamed Chameleone by publishing his story about shifting to his in-laws and now they are turning around and making it look like It was him. Bebe Cool wondered if he was the one who asked them to go and cover that story?
However, Bebe Cool giving Chameleone a house left a lot to be desired, but then again, he knew exactly what he was doing. During the launch of the Daniella Villas which were part of the Chameleone Investments, Chameleone reminded Bebe Cool to wake up and finish his house, something that really worked up the Bebe Cool camp.

A few days back, she decided to fool her followers that she was coming home (I'm coming home I'm coming tell the world I'm coming) of course a lie that not so many bought. The moment she lands here, she will be taken to Luzira Prison by one of those tinted pick-ups to complete her sentence or even serve a longer one for having breached the terms on which she was released.
Realizing that that trick was not selling, the 'Nkyamuka' singer changed goal posts and became a 'Ssenga' of sorts.
"To make matters worse, ugly women are busy taking your husbands while you spend your valuable time on facebook."
"Prepare some delicious meal for your hubby, "Mumaleko stress Mungeli Yonna" translated as; make sure he is stress free, and also clean him as well so that other girls would want a piece of him." I'm not very beautiful but men yearn for me just because I'm so calm as she wrapped up with her advise.
For the record, this is the girl who swindled billions from David Greenhalgh, a British businessman. David got her from Speke road for a night of passion, but she was irresistibly sweet that a night became nights and eventually business partners, and that is how the billions started coming in but since she was Bad news like her name suggests, she resorted to having a ball, buying 8-inch-heels for her gal brigade instead of the real estate business the billions were meant to sort.

Last Saturday was the day of the famous pool party that was organised by Guvnor's publicist Pherrie Kim and Venom's Nickita Bachu. Meddie Sentongo, Rabadaba and of course Nickita's boo, Gareth Onyango were some of the people that attended.
The ex-con came cruising a convertible lexus. In the pic, Bad Black's ex is seen getting his LV bag that was armed with his swimming gear. However, while at the pool party, he did more of drooling at babes who had come in all shapes and colours as they sipped on hard drinks.
The celebrity pool party was held at a private mansion in Mbuya. Although Meddie was busted, he still remains a force to reckon when it comes to spending. A few days back, he was in Masaka and dished out some amounts their. Back in the days, he used to buy his girl friends 'cheap' rides of around shs12m.
A few days back, he was spotted at Nakumatt parking in the company of three mean looking bodyguards.

Rema not being in Gagamel Crew not news anymore. The Kukaliba singer was expelled from the group by the Gagamel CEO, Bebe Cool using facebook after he learnt of her forthcoming concert on Oct 18, 2013 that has since been shifted from Club Obligatto to Hotel Equatorial Parking.
Last Thursday, Bebe was asked by NTV's Douglas Lwanga what Rema's future was and this was his response: "Let her focus on the forward by looking at the past mistakes. My design for her was totally different, I never made Rema to go jumping on weddings as a business, never, that disorganized my plans."
"I thought I could make an artiste that I can send to Channel O, because Rema sings better than I do when it comes to voices, you want it in New York, Nigeria and not at a wedding in Kyaliwajala."
Matters were made worse during the Kokodiosis concert when Bebe introduced a 10-year-old Congolese girl she had discovered from the on-going NTV Talent XP auditions: "With this young girl, I have the new Rema," Bebe told the guests. Rema has been busy working on her songs for the Kukaliba Concert not having time to respond to her being sacked.
But this time around, she made it clear that no one can bring you down or even make you feel less about yourself. "Lovely people, do what you want and say what you feel because, it's a matter of believing in yourself and no one, I repeat it NO ONE should bring you down or make you feel less about your self. Kukaliba Concert 18th Oct. @ Equatorial parking."
Since her being sacked from Gagamel, fans have been supportive and showing her love. Regarding her replacement, most of her fans insist, she is irreplaceable. Meanwhile, on the very day of Rema's Concert, The Tusker Project Fame judge, Juliana Kanyomozi will be holding her second concert since 2007 at serena Hotel and what is more amazing is that the songs; 'Eddiba' and 'Kukaliba' are similar in a way.
Rema has some wedding do's lined up for this month, and on Oct 12, she will be with Eddy Kenzo at The 'Omubimba' show in the UK before coming back to Uganda for the 'Kukaliba' concert. END

Ex-model Judith Heard is patiently waiting to see how sales at her Houston based store are boosted after American singer, Beyonce Knowles-Carter was spotted at a beach in Spain wearing a 2 African Girls bag.
Beyonce and her husband Shawn Corey Carter popularly known by his stage name Jay-Z were on holiday in Spain last week.
Judith was so excited at least from her tweet: "God answers all prayers, Beyonce spotted carrying a 2fricangirls bag." It won't be surprising if consumers who follow Beyonce's trends end up at the store in a mad rush for similar bags for use while at the beach.
It's not clear how much the bag costs as the section for handbags on the clothing line's website was empty. This was the comment off their official page as they shared the good news: "The Queen spotted with the 2 African Girls Omoni!!! Bag We love Bey!!"
2Africangirls is owned by Judith Heard and Michelle Okosun, a US based designer, It was launched early this year.

Bebe Cool together with other VIP guests were blocked from leaving and were ordered to switch off their car engines now that the 'Tomalira Budde' singer had issues to sort. This rubbed BEBE the wrong way losing the cool in him and gave the cops 10 minutes to open the gate as he had to go and rest ahead of his next show at Satelite Beach in Mukono.
Looks like as he waited for those ten minutes, he was busy thinking of the cop that shot him in 2010. The 'Tozimba Mutima' singer then ordered all the cars that were ahead of him to move to the side. This did not move the cops either, so Bebe got into his Hummer and drove through the fence twice and on the third attempt, the gate gave way driving off in a "Tomalira Budde" mood.
Socialite Judith Heard was at the time crying uncontrollably after being held for several minutes and yet she wanted to go and attend to her girl twins and son.

When word first broke out that Zuena had replaced Justine Nameere who had resigned, most fans of the show were like - will she manage! But at exactly 5pm on Sept 8, recordings of Zuena interviewing a disabled girl who had given birth to disabled children were on channel 283 for those on DSTV.
She was fluent and in fact one would easily think that it was not her first time, she did it like an experienced TV host. One reason could have been that it was a recorded version and therefore easy to deal with what might have gone wrong before the final version, but anyway, this was just the first show, and so far so good.
It reminded us of how Robin Kisti was just starting, you could tell it was her first time but with time, she got her grip on the screen and even danced 'NTV Kyakabi' and as they say, the rest is history.
These were some of the messages from the viewers that included her young sister, Mimi Kirema saying: "So proud of my sister, looking good on NTV and on point for a first timer! love it and may Allah bless you as you keep inspiring others."
More posts from the viewers:
Meanwhile, Justine Nameere has since scrapped the Life Stories show off her most liked TV shows leaving 'Katemba Mu Kooti', 'NTV Men' plus other foreign shows that include The Oprah show and VH1's single ladies among others.

Since then, Doreen Kabareebe has been a brand of her own at least when it comes to modeling. She has continued getting business even after announcing that she was putting her modeling career on hold to pursue political ambitions.
English movie translators are equally making a killing off Doreen. In Mbarara, one of the translators amused those who were watching when a scene of bikini clad models appeared, he had this to say: "Bano bambadde Nga Kabareebe Wa Uganda." Meaning: "These babes are dressed like Kabareebe."

Trust Big Size, he came cruising a yamaha bike for his Kokodiosis concert. Parked it and off he grabbed the mic kicking off the show with his version of Philey Bongoley Lutaaya's 'Born in Africa' track.
Female stars like Edith K and Irene Ntale were playing the role that otherwise Rema would have been playing had she not been expelled from the Gagamel Crew. Bebe Cool introduced a 10-year-old gal that he discovered from the ongoing NTV Talent XP auditions - and that he says, she will replace Rema.
Short of that, the launch was well organised, security was okay and the stage by Silk Events was superb. The numbers were fairly big but since the entrance fee for the ordinary tickets was 20k and 50k for VIP, the fans showed Bebe some Kokodiotic love.
Wyre, Nazizi, Navio and Peter Miles were among the other artistes who performed. Bebe Cool's wife Zuena Kirema could not hide her excitement as she thanked the fans for showing her hubby some love:
"Thank you, thank you, thank you, for everyone who attended,when I stepped on stage, I couldn't believe my eyes. I don't know how I can pay you all back am really speechless but am glad that my inbox is filling up with thank u texts, no complaints so far, am proud to say we made it from the organization, performance, sound & security am glad that I was there to serve you Bebe Cool fans & well wishers. Mukono are you ready????"

The game will be live on Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC). Uganda has never beaten Senegal in any competition but this does not worry coach Micho in any way. "In football, you are as good as the present game," Micho said.
Tycoon Ivan Semwanga has also pledged $10,000 if the Uganda Cranes win the 2014 World Cup qualifier game against the Senegalese team.

Uganda's music heavy weight Dr. Jose Chameleone is in Malawi for performances starting this Friday together with his young brother AK47. The Badilisha star arrived safely in Malawi on Thursday joining his band members who had travelled earlier. The Malawi tour is just days after winning the African Entertainment Award for 'Best International Male Artist'
He assured his fans in one of his tweets that: "All I do is win win win no matter what..." as he thanked them for the votes that enabled him to get the 24k gold award. As if confirming the title for his latest award, the 'Badilisha' star has been to Tanzania, Congo, Zambia and now Malawi in just five weeks and yet before that, he had been in the US for a month on a Badilisha tour.
Before the Malawi tour, he was supposed to perform in Dubai at Dhow Palace, but the organisers were a bit slow at sorting out the paper work, so he switched to Malawi. On Sept 11, 2013 Chameleone will be in the UK ahead of the Uganda Convention UK 2013 that will be held at Troxy Arena on September 14, 2013.
Tonight, Chameleone will be performing some of his hits that include 'Valu-Valu', 'Badilisha' among others while AK47 won't miss out his latest, 'Nali Simanyi' at Comesa Hall in Blantyre and on Saturday, the star will be at Mungo Park, Lilongwe and on Sunday, he will complete the Malawi tour with a performance at Lilongwe Golf Club.
So when the star uses his tag line "Leone Island Tugende Tukole" meaning Leone Islanders Let's get to work, you know exactly where he is coming from and where he is headed.

Last year, the battle was between Bobi Wine and Bebe Cool but this year, the Kokodiosis singer will take on the 2013 BET nominees and East Africa's dynamic duo of Moze Radio and Weasel. Appearing on NTV The Beat show, Bebe Cool said that if he is paid Shs200m, he will take the boys on.
In the previous battle, Bobi Wine came using a Pioneer Bus while Bebe Cool used his Hummer to the venue with a military pick-up clearing his way. Bebe Cool won this particular battle and just like Golola, he has the 'music belt', so he will be taking on the Goodlyfe Crew come Dec 6, 2013 at Kyadondo.
During the press briefing ahead of the music battle, Bobi Wine amused those who were around that he could not speak before his vice president, Bebe Cool.
"You wanna hear from me, that's no protocal, I'm the President and Bebe Cool was my Vice President when he was in Fire Base, he never resigned and I have never discharged him, he never wrote a resignation letter, so I consider him still my Vice President so he has to speak before me, just follow protocal, thank you very much."
Looks like 'The Battle of the Champions' is becoming an annual event at this rate.
Monday, 02 September 2013
The ex-con moved in a fleet of three posh rides that included two BMW's and a blue Range Rover with 'STIG' customised registration plates. Other Street Jam sponsors included Club Beer and Bukedde FM. The Africa Entertainment Awards Best Male International artist, Jose Chameleone, Rema Namakula and Geoffrey Lutaaya were among the artistes who thrilled fans with their hits.
Meddie then made his way back to Kampala and on Sunday evening, he was at Club Venom for the Beach Bar busy enjoying shisha as burgers and fresh beers were flowing endlessly.
Sunday, 01 September 2013
September is also a very special month for Bebe Cool as he will be performing live in the Kokodiosis Concert starting Sept 6, 2013 at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds followed by Mukono Satelite Beach on Sept 7 and finally Golola's best punching area, Freedom City on Sept 8, 2013.
Just yesterday, he was in Rwanda performing at Kigali Gikondo Expo Grounds after taking time off the Talent XP role as a judge. He will be part of the line-up of artistes to perform at Radio Simba's 'Ekiggunda Ky' Owmaka' in Nakivubo Stadium today(Sept 1), an event where pregnant women and children are not allowed.
As part of his 36th birthday celebrations, Bebe Cool will wrap up the eve with what he is terming as a 'bottle drink-Up' at his Kiwatule based apartments. Not so sure what he will be taking after denouncing the hard drinks a few weeks back, but HBD anyway!
Saturday, 31 August 2013
Since the fight was not going to be live on any of the local television channels, fans had to make their way to Freedom City to see who will go back in the coffin that Tugume had arranged. Unfortunately, seconds into the game, it was all over after Golola's first jab sent the UPDF man flying all the way down.
Earlier on, Golola had assured his fans that he will thump him to the extent of forgetting his number in the military. We are yet to establish that though it seems to be a more practical one as compared to going back in a coffin that Titus had prepared for Golola had he won.
This was Golola's first fight with a Ugandan kick-boxer. So Golola is not a joking subject after all.

In her latest photo shoot, Stella took all angles of her toned down body next to the monster guzzler exactly the way Zari cuts it. It's no surprise that Zari was a few months back appointed the Ambassador for Miss Asia Pacific World (MAPW), the same pageant Stella is participating in this October.
As if that is not enough, the talented fashion designer ambushed Zari's ex, Isaac Lugudde aka LK4 who had gone to South Africa for the Big Brother The Chase Grand Finale that saw Namibia's Dilish Mathews win the $300,000.
The Star QT fashion label boss is now all set for the pageant that will be held at the Grand Ball Room of 63 City Tower Building, Seoul Korea on October 30, 2013.

Barbie and the kids were at the airport to receive him but given the distance to their home in Magere and the traffic, they decided to settle at Spennah Beach in Entebbe which is a stone throw away from Entebbe International Airport to beat the check-in deadline.
While at Spennah Beach, Bobi Wine was spotted carrying Barbie on his back as the kids who were at the time feasting on chips and fish cheered them on in the background. This was a belated wedding anniversary celebration which Bobi summarized as short but sweet. "It's been so brief but sweet," Bobi noted on his wall.
Meanwhile, Princess Ruth Komuntale's husband, Christopher Thomas was among those who congratulated the couple on their 2nd wedding anniversary.
Tonight, Bobi Wine will be joining his team that had traveled earlier to prepare for his performances at Luli Luli Hotel in South Africa.

"On this date of every year, a beautiful feeling engulfs me, I feel like it's just the two of us on this planet. When I first met you, I did not imagine you could ever be mine...Now we are twelve years into a beautiful and fruitful relationship that has over powered all challenges and prevailed."
He continued, "Today I'm celebrating 2 years with gold on my finger. Thanks for trusting me with your precious hand in marriage....Happy Anniversary my best friend." Bobi Wine's message came in nine hours after his wife, Barbie (Of course given the activity at the reggae festival and the time difference).
Barbie Wine had earlier posted this saying Bobi Wine was her's from the time he knew him.
"Two years ago, my dream came true. I had waited 10yrs to say those magical words "I do". You kept your word, you gave me a Royal wedding. The world stood still, All televisions in the nation broadcasted live, All press was in one spot! At our Wedding. Like a Princess, I walked through a Magnitude of people and together, We celebrated Love before EVERYONE. Am lucky I married you."
Barbie who is about to be done with a tell-all book about Bobi Wine concluded: "You were my choice from the time I knew you well and you still are my only choice.My love for you grows each day and like I always say,You are my best friend and nothing can come in between us. We have seen it all I guess. Happy Anniversary Bobi Wine. And I love you! Guilty as Charged."
The couple tied the knot at Rubaga Cathedral in August 2011 after a 10-year courtship. The Queen of Buganda and Jose Chameleone were among the celebrities in attendance.

Like a chameleon that changes its colour to match the environment, the music DOCTOR changed and went for the leopard spot fashion. We are still getting to terms with why a chameleon would opt for leopard fashion well knowing that a leopard cannot change its spots, but being the star he is, it was okay for him to be dressed up in extravangant clothing.
However, during the same show, some ladies who went clad in micro-mini skirts with others having nothing under got the short end of the stick as summarized by KFM's Roger Mugisha through this post:
"I have decided not to post Konshens concert pictures. Word of caution; when planning a concert outing where more than 2000 people are expected, go an extra mile to choose 'risk averse' wardrobe. A dress top that goes panty-less is a bad idea! The tear gas at the gates was enough to reveal careless wardrobe.
It is unfortunate that some ladies were abused, fondled and _______ as the chaos broke out at the gates, some fainted in the scuffle." The radio personality adds that: "The show was good, unfortunately 'inadequate' crowd control planning might cost some brands their well intended brand experience."

The 'Anyereketa' singer Iryn Namubiru is done with the shooting of her latest 'Kabiki' video. However, her choice of plus-size models left a lot to be desired. In her own words, she says: "It will be good for the eyes." This will be one of the tracks to look out for during the 'Tebiba Bingi' Concert slated for 4,5 and 6 Oct, 2013.
Iryn and Juliana are ranked as the best female musicians in Uganda and they are doing everything in their means to remain as such; a move that artistes like Grey Naava, a Tusker Project Fame 2 contestant continues to resist.
Ex-Gagamel singer, Rema Namakula is one artiste getting a run for her money as she tries to establish herself in the top line-up of female artistes. Rema's first show is slated for Oct 18, 2013 but she has since changed the location from Club Obligatto to Hotel Equatorial Parking, could this move be prompted by Juliana choosing the same date, only time will tell.
The same pressure has trickled down to fast-rising upcoming artiste, Irene Ntale who has opted to playing the game differently. Irene is very close to her namesake, Iryn Namubiru and out of this relationship, 'Monster Vocals' is what their fans will be subjected to.
Irene Ntale was complementing Iryn on her 'Tebiba Bingi' hit and this was Iryn's reply: "Thank you so much sweetie. And you know how much I adore yours. I meant it when I said let's marry Iryn with Irene=Monster Vocals."

Updated - Big Brother The Chase eventually came to an end on August 25, 2013. Namibia's Dilish Mathew emerged the winner after beating all the housemates to the $300,000 grand prize. Dilish Matthews is the second female housemate to win the grand prize after Nigeria's Karen Igho who won in 2011. It should also be noted that Cherise Makubale from Zambia won the first season in 2003.
Ugandan rapper Keko Tracy was one of the artistes who performed at the Big Brother Grand Finale. The 'Make You Dance' star did 'See Ya' to which she danced very well wiggling her behind like there was no tomorrow.
However, Zambia's Sulu who was supposed to join other housemates came in style. He came on stage as a performer doing 'Ruby', a song he composed while in the house. This got all housemates singing along most especially those from the Ruby house like Uganda's LK4.
The grand finale show gave our Denzel and Kenya's Huddah Monroe a chance to get to know the rest of the housemates because they were evicted at the time when they hardly knew most housemates. It was also an opportunity for couples to start from where they stopped.
Housemates are no longer under Biggie's watch so you can imagine what is going on in South Africa right now. LK4 and Koketso, Elikem and Pokello, Angelo and Beverly, Feza and Oneal among others.

Desire made sure as she chased the ball, her belly tattoo, navel piercing and curves were on full display to whoever cared to follow the game. Other celebrities who joined Desire to play the game for charity included: Navio, Maurice Kirya and comedians Salvador, Mendo and Alex Muhangi.
Bobi Wine's Barbie and Desire were some of the team captains. Dorah was so excited and thankful to all those who responded to her call. "I really don't know where to start, Im so thankful to all of you that turned up. I think it's good to have our celebrities doing fun sports activities in a friendly way, fun way but most of all for a good cause, saving a life."
In a related development, Bebe Cool joined the Speaker of Uganda, Rebecca Kadaga this morning in a cancer Marathon at Kololo Airstrip that was flagged off by Golden boy Stephen Kiprotich. The speaker also asked women to check for breast cancer and men to check for prostrate cancer.

On Wednesday, Ivan checked in at a Sandton based hospital for the operation that lasted 6 hours. It cost him Shs 160m according to inside sources. On Saturday, the South African based Ugandan tycoon was spotting a black t-shirt with these words: "No one in my city has Swagger like me."
Its not clear what prompted this move though many are of the view that former Big Brother The Chase contestant, LK4 who dated his wife for some weeks could be the reason behind this. LK4 is fit and keeps in shape through basketball and regular exercising. This could have been what attracted Zari to LK4.
Ivan now wears a compression vest which helps in reducing the risk of bleeding and bruising. The compression garment can be dropped after 48 hours or even after a week depending on the patient. Otherwise, some plastic surgeons even recommend up to six weeks of wearing the garment for better results.

This prompted the show host to ask him which type of gal is best for him; the 'Gal a Bubble' star said that: "She had to be the hardworking type, Independent and daring..." so if you measure up to that standard, there you go.
The Jamaican star will be live tomorrow at Lugogo Cricket Oval. Tickets are on sale at various points with the Generals having to part with 25k and 75k for the VIPs. Tickets can be purchased from Uchumi Garden City, Nakumatt branches in Bugolobi, Bukoto and Oasis Mall and Engen Petrol Station which is around the Forest Mall.
This evening, Konshens was caught up in traffic along Lugogo Bypass after a trailer that tried to turn around Kololo SS got stuck blocking traffic to Bukoto and Naguru. His tweet just summed it up; "Driving in Uganda... Dont know if this is traffic or parking lol."
Meanwhile, Alaine is still counting her blessings given the opportunities that continue coming her way; "True confession got teary eyed on the drive from the airport to the Hotel. Giving thanks to God for the opportunities He has blessed me with."
Tomorrow, all roads lead to Lugogo Cricket Oval where Konshens will be doing some of his massive hits that include: Couple Up, Gal A Bubble among others.

Construction of the rentals is steadily progressing. Bukasa is not very far from Muyenga where Jose Chameleone is currently staying. Last year, the group was involved in a secret ownership battle with their manager, Jeff Kiwanuka when they discovered that he owned 60% of the group. The singer is now doing something for himself on the side.
At the time, his Norway based lover, Carol Serwadda was in the garden busy picking apples but she took off a moment to let the 'Obudde' star know that she was proud of him for having moved such a step.
The Goodlyfe Crew came back from the US at the end of last month. They had gone to attend the awarding ceremony of the BET Awards which they unfortunately lost to Ice Prince. They have just released a new video remix for their 'Magnetic' song which they performed in South Africa on the Big Brother Africa live show.
The duo will be in Belgium On Sept 05, 2013 and have also told their fans in East London to expect them on yet to be announced dates.

So people out there who have always wanted me to help musically, kindly, don't miss this one chance."

Meanwhile, yesterday evening during the Prime News Live, NTVUganda unveiled a new state-of-the art studio with modern digital equipment and broadcast experience, however, you could tell that it was the first time the new studio was in use as images could appear still for some good seconds before the live broadcast could resume.

"Your my sweet heart and my one and only, With you forever won't be too long, I really cherish you and we were made for each other. I love You." Bad Black noted in her warm words to Maysean.
In the middle of celebrating her love with Maysean, Meddie tried getting in touch with her through her wall, but the response was so cold. Bad Black did not have any kind words for the ex-convict. The 'Nkyamuka' singer used the opportunity to remind him of how he never valued her worth.
"Huuuu!!! I loved u but not anymore I did everything to please u but u did not value it." Back in the days, Bad Black used to treasure Meddie and the only thing she could post on her wall was how amazing Meddie was, but even then, Meddie would not return the love.
In her rant to Meddie, Bad Black adds: "I was so cheap, ugly, low class, cheater and so on, so what else is there for us to talk about!"
Just last week, Meddie was spotted with a light skinned babe at Forest Cottages in Naguru before leaving for Dubai.

NTV Uganda is now on a country-wide search for talented singers, dancers and all who can play a musical instrument. The Talent XP show that kicks off this September will be hosted by Kats Mc and Robin Kisti of the Expozed and Login shows.
"If you can sing, dance or play an instrument, then NTV’s premier talent show, Talent XP is your kind of platform. Twenty million shillings is up for grabs for winners who will then form the first ever cover band in Uganda," said a source from NTV.
On Aug 16, the team was at Andrew Gardens in Fort Portal and they are currently combing Masaka and Mbarara towns. Interested applicants in the areas of Arua, Gulu and Jinja will be handled next. The team will then wind up with Kampala and Entebbe.
Bebe Cool and Jackie Chandiru are some of the judges. Earlier on, Chameleone was part of the judge-line up but the star pulled out citing various international shows and a busy schedule. Chameleone and Bebe Cool don't see eye-to-eye though, so his pulling out does not come as a surprise.

Of course, this rubbed BEBE the wrong way that he had no choice but to fire the 'Kukaliba' singer using facebook to ensure that the message does not get stuck in the outbox, assuming it was an email. Now that Rema had hinted on it a day before her sacking, it became clear to all that she was holding her concert on 18 October, 2013 at Club Obligatto.
Just two days back, the Tusker Project Fame judge announced that she will be having a live concert at Serena Hotel on Oct 18, 2013 where she will be playing most of her old hits and the new songs that include: 'Omutima Oguluma', 'Ndibulungi', 'Give It 2Mi' and her very latest, 'Eddiba' among others.
On the other hand, Rema will be doing her 'Kukaliba', 'Oliwange', 'Atuuse' and 'Fire Tonight' among others. Her blockbuster hits with Bebe Cool which include 'Cease and Seckle' and 'Missing You' hang in balance now that she is not part of the Gagamel Crew anymore. This has left fans loyal to both artistes with having to choose which show to attend.
However, music pundits say there's no problem with both holding their concerts on the same day by virtue of the locations. The 'Juliana Live Concert' will take care of the upscale fans while the 'Kukaliba' concert could as well take care of everyone.

Socialite Zari is not new to Reality TV though. She once had a show on Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) dubbed 'Zari The Boss Lady' which was stopped due to the steamy kiss that Zari and Sylvia Owori had while on a boat cruise.
In an effort to embrace local content over the foreign soaps, NTV has a lot in store. It recently brought Douglas Lwanga of 'The Beat' on board and Bebe Cool's better half, Zuena Kirema is yet to appear on it's pay roll.
Straight from the horse's mouth: "New Series coming on NTV soon," Zari tweeted as she worked out in the Serena Hotel based Gymnasium where part of the filming was taking place. Interestingly, Zari is working hand in hand with Sylvia Owori on this show.
Strolling on the treadmill as she struggled to cram the scripts, Zari noted : "Working this TV for the awesome show soon on NTV with Sylvia doing her thing." It should also be noted that in the line of Reality TV shows, Bobi Wine has just had a name change from 'Omubanda Wa Kabaka' to 'Ghetto President Reality Show'.

On this very day in the past year, curvy Desire Luzinda was marking her 25th Birthday, however, the 'Nyumirwanyo' singer stunned her fans on the eve of her birthday by insisting that she has just turned 25. In fact, she even put a note detailing the day, month and year she was born. On the piece of paper she wrote: " I was born on 15.08.1988, Do the Maths!.
This has left many perplexed as to whether the singer has genuinely forgotten her birthday or otherwise, but in her words she says, "25th birthday presents already coming in, Thank you..." Some of the presents included three bottles of moet and chandon champagne, with one of them half full implying that the party had long kicked off.
Some even think, this could have been the more reason she forgot her age or it's a question of wanting to remain young. Otherwise those who were with her in school put her correct age in the range of 29-34. All in all, HBD!

Mr. G is torn between Bobi Wine and Bebe Cool as they are both close to him; for Bobi, It's through the 'Clean and Out' collaboration and for Bebe Cool, If you recall his concert in 2011 when he was supposed to bring in Chaka Demus and the Pliers, then at the very last minute, Chaka Demus failed to make it due to fatigue, he was replaced by Mr. G.
Judging from his response, Bebe Cool is not intimidatable at this point. In fact, he says that Mr. G is a personal good friend of his and all seems well, though he knows who is behind all this.
"Hi ma fans, I know there were a few issues concerning Mr. G and I see what is happening, but please don't attack him because you all know who is using him. Anyway, all is good and the launch is in high gear, just get ready for the 6,7,8 September, The real Kokodiosis album launch Ting Dis, " Bebe Cool noted on his wall as he cleared the space.
However, some of the Gagamel members insist, Bobi Wine should be thankful to Bebe Cool for having brought in Mr. G to perform at his show two years back, and now, Bobi Wine has a collabo with him.
Wednesday, 14 August 2013
Mr.G aka Goofy has called for calm in the wake of Bobi Wine paying him to do the Clean and Out collaboration.
This got to Bobi Wine who did not waste any time in telling the Kokodiosis singer off: "The bad mind is making you age so fast." Bad news travels like wildfire, so somehow, Mr. G got wind of this and very quickly intervened to rescue the situation. Mr. Swaggerific said that all talk that he was paid to do the 'Clean and Out' collaboration hit was hogwash.
"People of Uganda this is Mr. G aka Goofy, let me clear the air this bull about Bobi Wine paying me money to record with me is nothing but crap, why is it when one of our brothers tries to move to the next level there is nothing but hatred coming from his fellow artiste and the supporters of that artiste.
Jamaica's Mr. G concluded: "It is very sad in my eyes to see this going on, My African brothers and sisters lets join together to make this unity amongst the two countries a success everywhere in the world, the song has already started hitting in Jamaica, Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, let us be our brothers keeper, One Love until we meet again," Mr. G.
The said post does not appear on Bebe Cool's wall and for some reason, he has not come out to clear the space. However, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Zuena stood by Bebe Cool through this post: "Some things just leave me laughing, Mbu, Bebe Cool said this and that about so and so...These fb pages are trying to sell by writing ill about my hubby, but they won't manage because at the end of it all, God is in control." Watch this space!

The last time the Badilisha star was in the US, he made it a point that he visits the Bruce Lee grave site in Seattle to pay his tribute. Early this month, Chameleone was performing at the Government Complex in Lusaka, Zambia where he left his fans yearning for more of his hits.
As part of his tour, he paid a visit to the ex-Zambian President final resting place in Lusaka. Dr. Frederick Chiluba was the second President of Zambia who died on 18 June, 2011.
Chameleone has fans all over Africa. On arrival in Zambia, the star was seen waving and smiling to his fans atop a limousine that chauffeured him from the airport to the hotel, but one could easily confuse the Zambian fans for his Ugandan fans.
Jose Chameleone's Badilisha tour continues. The star is currently in Tanzania and over the weekend, he will be in Dubai for performances. It should be noted that before this, he was in Congo and Zambia respectively.

Bad Black and Vercruse Maysean have kicked off from where they stopped. First, Bad Black was like: "I don't miss Uganda anymore", then the pregnancy test. However, her latest pics speak volumes about the man responsible for the pregnancy. In the pictures, Bad Black is seen with her 25-year-old loverboy, Maysean.
Emphasizing that they were born in the same year, fugitive Bad Black noted that: "I was born on 5/7/1989 ma partner on 5/1/1989 dat was Thursday and me Wednesday I hope this time God answered ma prayers by blessing me with the man who holds my second ♥♥♥ I feel like a real woman."
Feels like a real woman indeed. This is the same woman who told court in her submissions that the eleven billion she withdrew off the company account was in compensation for the love sessions they had with her ex-lover David Greenhalgh. However, that explanation was not convincing enough that it had to land her a four year jail sentence.
Luckily for her, she had just had a breast augmentation done, so that served as an excuse for her to leave jail briefly to travel to Dubai and have them removed. Of the four years, Bad Black had only served four months and since then, she has never come back to complete her sentence.
The 'Nkyamuka' singer has since been joined by her second born, Jonathan in Malaysia.

"He lives his life in the limelight and most of you think you know him. Well, none of you knows half of who he is and what has transpired in his 30plus years spent on Earth. I have been tasked to Author his Biography and am so honored to present to you Bobi Wine through my eyes come 2014. Another big book coming soon to your shelves dear readers, " Barbie noted on her wall.
The first book was about Barbie and her memories as she was growing up coupled with the noise the frogs in Magere could make while it rained, but the next one will be about Bobi Wine and what has transpired in his 31 years. Of course it will feature Bobi's experience in Jamaica while he shot the Clean and Out video, The Ghetto Reality TV Show and of course the 'spare tyre' in the UK who is demanding for a baby girl.
The book will definitely have great love scenes though Barbie will deliver scenes that are comfortable reading and writing. During the time of releasing her first book, she promised her readers that more books were in the pipeline, so there you go.

The mother of three was experiencing a severe stomach pain plus other pregnancy related symptoms, so she opted for a second opinion. However, all didn't flow as she expected, she waited for a solid three hours before a nursing assistant told her that they do not execute pregnancy tests or even sell related medicines.
On realizing that Bad Black was so pissed, the nursing assistant opted to carrying out the test and on delivering the results, Bad Black was told that the results were negative. The mother of three is convinced that she is pregnant but wondered why they were telling her otherwise.
She roared on her wall: "There are many fake International hospitals nowdays. I cannot believe this, I went for a pregnancy test and stomach pain check up, but the doctor told me that they don't sell pregnancy tests and medicine. They later changed their minds and carried out the test." The waiting took 3 hours before the results were delivered. They were negative.
"I have pregnancy symptoms but this doctor thinks I'm stupid or it is my first time to experience it, they should tell me the truth and I resort to early pills, I just can't be in a labour ward every year," Shanita added.
Bad Black has three children though little is known about her first child who was born before the Daveshan 11billion scam. The other two are Jonah and Davinah. When she was released from Luzira briefly, she bounced back in a family court with Jonah's dad over his custody.
The father of her last born is still unknown. Initially, she tried to link Uganda Crane's player, Eugene Sepuuya and ex-lover Eric Obua as the babyfathers but it all backfired.

Star singer Jose Chameleone is in Tanzania for a performance at Dar-es-Salaam's latest beach front destination at Escape Complex.
According to a statement from the organisers: "This party is guaranteed to go all night with Epiq Bongo star search artistes hosting and opening the night time entertainment with live performances, leading up to Ugandan musical icon, Chameleone, gracing the Escape Complex main stage on Saturday night. Expect to hear all of your favorite Chameleone hits from yester-year and today."
Chameleone will thrill his fans with hits from the Mama Mia days to today's Badilisha alongside DJ's Bulla, Senorita and Pac. The father of five has had issues with Tanzania where he broke a leg in 2008 after falling from a top floor in Arusha, and just last year, he had to camp at the Tanzanian Embassy here in Kampala after his passport was confiscated, but all this is behind him as we see more of Chameleone gigs in TZ.
It should be noted that, five days back, Chameleone was performing in Lusaka Zambia, and while there, ex Big Brother star and Zambia's finest, Mampi Mukape of the Swilili fame used the opportunity to take the star to studio for a recording which should be expected any time soon. Next week, Chameleone will be in Dubai.
Communicating the Tanzanian trip, he shared a pic of himself with Dr. Besigye whom he must have met on his way to TZ with these words: "Fully Ugandan and proud to be from "Pearl of Africa" where MUSIC is the vibe! As I head off to TANZANIA, I remind every MUSIC lover that Music earned me this! It's not easy but I hang in and they compliment my contribution."

Fugitive Bad Black has resurfaced on the social scene days after her partner in crime, Meddie Ssentongo was released. In her latest pics, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black was in the company of her son Jonah who was busy looking at car mats outside a supermarket.
This was a day before EID when Bad Black shared the above pics on her wall. In the pics, some of her pals were telling her of how she looked preggie, others complementing her on the curves and some insisting that she should come back to Uganda.
Bad Black said: "I do not miss Uganda,"meaning that she won't be back any time soon unless when authorities catch up with her now that she is on the wanted list for having jumped bail. Bad Black was sentenced to 4 years for her role in the Shs11bn that was embezzled from her ex-lover and business partner, David Greenhalgh.
Meddie Sentongo is now a shadow of his former self. The ex-Luzira housemate was spotted cruising a silver RAV4 in UAR series, a car he could not drive before he was jailed. The ex barber could not settle for less, it had to be one of these posh rides; Tundra, Range Rover Sport and a BMW Convertible among others.
Looks like he is a changed man because he even snubbed his own party at Club Venom citing the holy month of Ramadhan.

The above tweet meant that Zari was having a bad EID day due to tax issues which she promised to sort out pretty soon as a responsible citizen. Some of her followers had to tag URA into the conversation to at least look into her case and open the stores which had been closed.
A response from the official Uganda Revenue Authority twitter handle revealed that they had nothing to do with the operation that was carried out at Zari's stores. "We didn't sanction this operation but since she is alerting us we are going to check in her tax affairs."
Having nothing to do with the taxman, the landlord came into play. The stores must have been closed due to rent arrears, but like the boss lady says, she is going to sort it out.
Meanwhile, this is happening at the time when she is about to launch her latest store in Pretoria and yet, they(entire family) have just come back from the UK, which among others involved football training for her first born who turned 10 yesterday and another boy at the rate of £845 per child, may be rent wasn't top on the agenda...!

Miss Uganda 2008 beauty queen stunned everyone when she shaved all her hair off. Its now slightly over a month when Dorah has not had to worry about what wig/weave or hair extension to wear.
Some people could hardly recognise her at the last Miss Uganda Pageant that was held at Kampala Serena. Dorah was forced to explain her boldness in the bald move, and this is what she had to say:
"Simply having a heart and "a passion for care"... Sometimes it's just sacrificing what we love the most that can bring a smile and change to thousands of hearts!"
This very move got another ex-beauty queen commending the cause. "Wow Dorah, God bless you, this is a very beautiful thing to do, I lost my grannie two years ago from cancer, much love," Salma Nassanga wrote.
Dorah who resigned her job to concentrate on charity activities under her Dorah Mwima Foundation adds that: "I was inspired by Stefania Ferrarrio, a 20 year-old-model, who spots a bald head advocating for cancer awareness."
On the 24 Aug 2013, there will be a celebrity football game at Lugogo Grounds-Legends and proceeds from the game will be channeled to the pediatric patients at the Uganda Cancer Institute - Children's ward. Bebe Cool, Peter Miles, Salma Nassanga and Ex-Blu3 member, Lilian Mbabazi are expected to play.

According to Bebe Cool's description, Life Stories, a show that is aired on Sunday evenings is what Zuena is likely to take replacing Justine Nameere who decided to resign using facebook.
Bebe Cool further went on to reveal how his wife's business has moved on from just baking cakes to a Sabavulu of sorts. Her company now hires out chairs and tents plus bridal cars. This means that if you want a Hummer to be part of your bridal fleet, you could give it a try after bridal cars became part of the services under 'Zuena Pastries'

Earlier reports had indicated that David had committed suicide but failed to die as a result of the poisoning. Post-mortem examination results are yet to be released by Walthamstow Mortuary.
David and Linah have a two-year-old daughter who was emulating her mom in the field of modeling. In Rwanda, a vigil is being held at Stone road, Kisementi, in Kigali next to the Seventh Day church. According to Carol, one of their neighbours, David had always warned of killing Linah but they did not take it serious.
"We are all speechless they have been my neighbour at Palmerston road before Kikaawa moved out two weeks ago! But he wasn't drunk or on drugs, he has been saying this all the time(killing) his wife, we all thought was a joke of being jealous, RIP Lilll," Carol noted.

Socialite Zari and husband Ivan Semwanga are back to South Africa after their 'make-up' trip the UK that doubled as a holiday and football training for the kids at Manchester. However, given the photographic evidence before us, the celebrity couple does not care about the baggage allowances as they travel with a mountain of Louis Vuitton bags plus a couple of others too.
Before going to the UK, Ivan and Zari had issues but all that is now behind them. A few days back, the two were busy supervising construction works at one of their Brooklyn Colleges in Pretoria. Zari now says that her next destination will be; New York, Miami, Boston and Texas cum next month.
In one of her tweets a few days back, Zari revealed why she will not just let go off Ivan irrespective of what happens between them, "There comes a point when you just love someone, not because they're good, bad, or anything really. You just love them the way they are..!" So with those few words, nothing can come in between these two.
In a related development, Sharon O is right now in studio trying to make final touches to her latest track dubbed; Ani, we can't wait for the story behind the track.

The hospital then resorted to pumping water to supply the entire hospital and the staff quarters. Unfortunately, the pump broke down two months back prompting the area MP who goes by the nickname 'Panadol' to protest the move. Speaking to journalists, the MP said that calls to relevant authorities like the Ministry of Health were not helping.
Juliana who was hours into releasing her latest 'Eddiba' video was so disgusted on learning about this. The diva decided to add her voice to that of Iganga's 'Panadol' in calling for the restoration of water to the hospital that serves about 500 people per day.
"But surely National Water and Sewerage Corporation how do you disconnect water supply to a hospital where hundreds of patients are admitted, women are delivering babies and operations being done. If the hospital owes you money can't you be creative and think of another way to get your money? May be instalments or something. It's a hospital, people are sick and they need help come on," Juliana noted.

Just yesterday, we told you of how Weasel's girlfriend has no problem with how many kids Weasel has because they had no role to play in being brought to this world. Those words must have been words of encouragement to some babes who are now proud to say who the babyfathers are.
Another cutie only identified as Diana Nasuna is remembering the pain of labour almost two years later and this is what she wrote while sharing the daughter's pic with close friends: "At around this time two years ago, I was starting to get labour pains only to give birth to you many hours later...you're my destiny...love you lots Queenley Nakintije. I'm so proud and glad to have you making two years soon."
Diana is a Goodlyfe diehard fan and amazingly, her daughter has Nakintije on her birth records. For the record, Nakintije is Moze Radio's last name and just in case you're not aware, he is also the father to former Blu3 star, Lilian Mbabazi's boy.

Meanwhile, the Goodlyfe Crew are coming back to Uganda on Tuesday at 12pm from the US where they've been for the last one month after attending the BET Awards.

Iryn Namubiru released her 'Begombeko' version in Jan 2010 while Madagascar's Lianah released her 'Walawala' in Jan 2013. ''It's a new year, new composition and new style," noted a website published in French early this year that was reviewing Lianah's Walawala, now a hit in Madagascar, confirming that it's been around for slightly over half a year.
Iryn who is currently in Paris was equally shocked after listening to Lianah's version and this is what she had to say: "I just hope its a parody! Got my raw demo protected." In this case, Lianah was imitating Iryn. However, judging from the way Lianah was doing her thing, it was evident she had listened to Iryn's version.
In Begombeko, which means, let them look at with pleasure, Iryn sings: "Njagala Njagala..., Njagala Njagala Kuba Wuwo..Abasobola bakutunuleeko Abayaagala begombeko, Naye tewali akukwataako bwaba kulemerako Mba mufiraako.." translated as I want to be your's, they are free to admire but no one touches you and should they do so, that's when they will see the other side of me.
And when it comes to Lianah, she replaces Njagala Njagala with Walawala, a text meaning that you should look at life from a positive perspective.
This Lianah-Iryn issue is similar to that of Ragga Dee and Mampi. Ragga Dee plagiarized Mampi's Swilili song to come up with a Luganda version without her consent, but while in Uganda for a Valentine's day show, she made it clear that she had forgiven him and also encouraged him to desist from the vice.

The latest from Carol's Norway based camp is that kids have no problem and if anything they only bring peace. Carol adds that, they didn't ask to be brought to this world, respect the baby mom and the baby father.
Here's Carol's full statement off her wall: "Kids are beautiful they are innocent and bring nothing other than peace -for that, love them regardless of were, when and how they were conceived. The truth is they never asked for there arrival. Respect the baby mom as well as the baby father after all its support of the new generation. Happy weekend with love."
In Carol's message, it's clear she is not the type who will be battling with her rivals. Meanwhile, Weasel and Mose are still in the US and a few weeks back, Weasel was spotted in a company of her new web of fans enjoying the white sand.
One local song sums it up: 'Abakazi Abaguma Tebasangika' meaning that: Women of Carol's type are a rare breed.

The awarding ceremony will be held on 20 September, 2013 at Lugogo Arena. However, one of the Judges, Jasmine Dotiwala made the following observations through Huffington post.
"I noted that most of the videos were in need of Ofcom style compliance rules advise, so that product placement, dangerous and imitable behaviour, smoking, drinking and soft porn during daytime playlists could be avoided."
"One thing that intrigued me was that it seemed that 99% of all music videos submitted, seemed to come straight from Jamaica, such is the passion of Ugandans brought up on dance-hall music. With full patois accents and dance-hall dance moves, it was like judging a Caribbean set of acts, as opposed to African."
"Another observation was that like many new acts around the world, their videos highlight sexy, scantily dressed girls gyrating wildly and rappers surrounded by their version of material wealth."
Jasmine concluded that the Uganda music industry is likely to grow rapidly. "Considering how young the Ugandan music industry is, I can see that the passion and D.I.Y attitude of the artists and film makers means that this is a market that will grow rapidly with increased reach of their acts the same way west African artists from Nigeria have broken into international music playlists recently."
Other judges included: Channel O's Leslie Kasumba, Trace TV's Philip Nkwakwo and South African film maker Stonier Matthew.

Has Meddie's being incarcerated at Luzira Prison changed him or he is respecting the holy month of Ramadhan, otherwise how else does one explain his conspicuous absence from Club Venom yesterday.
Apparently, Club Venom was thronged with a bevy of girls who turned up for the red carpet event just to catch a glimpse of the man whose party it was but unfortunately, Meddie was so busy catching up on what he had missed in the last one year as opposed to showing up at a bar during the holy month.
Yesterday's (V)Wednesday-themed-party at Club Venom was dedicated to Meddie Ssentongo as a way of welcoming him back from Luzira Prison following his conviction last year in connection with the 11bn that was embezzled from Greenhalgh, a briton who had partnered with Bad Black to set up a real estate company.
Former Club Rouge Managers and lovers (Nickita and Gareth) who are now playing a similar role at Club Venom were among those who went to pick up Meddie the moment he was set free from prison. It should be recalled that in July 2011, at the time, Nickita and Gareth were still in charge of Club Rouge, Bad Black held her birthday bash their injecting over Shs70m.
However, when Meddie was set free from prison, there was need to welcome the big spender if at all he is still one to their new home, Club Venom. ''I'm respecting the holy month now and will party later," Meddie told snoops who were inquiring about his next plans.

Trust the Ghetto president, he was on the same flight with Uganda's Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Sekandi and as expected, he could not miss a photo moment with Uganda's second-in-command compensating for the losses he suffered during the independence day celebrations last year when he was stopped from accessing the Presidential Pavilion.
A week back, while launching Clean and Out to the Jamaican music lovers, Mr. G tweeted thus: "Check out my new single Clean & Out remixed by Bobi Wine, one of Africa's biggest artistes." This is likely to earn Bobi more collaborations because based on his earlier post before heading to Jamaica, he had this to say:
"When I set out to be a music man in 1996 as a little boy, me and only my fellow dance-hall artistes drew our inspiration from Jamican artistes Goofy (Mr.G), Red Rat, Buju, Beenie and of course Bounty Killer and many more, Jamaica has always been the capital of dancehall music."
Going to Jamaica had always been his dream but all this is now behind him as he is only a few hours to meeting the stars he had only dreamt about. The ghetto gladiator could not hide his excitement:
"I'm honoured to work with one of the most talented dance-hall artistes alive, I'm very much honoured to represent Uganda and Africa...hmmm, some dreams can actually come true...Jamaica, here I come," he concluded.
Bobi has traveled at the time when the Goodlyfe Crew (Moze Radio and Weasel) are still in the US where they have already done a collabo with the African Act BET winner, Ice Prince plus on going negotiations to being signed to big record labels. The music doctor has also just come back from CONGO, the land of Lingala, where he left them yearning for more of the Badilisha style.

Announcing the latest developments on her wall, Justine wrote: "All new...coming soon...I'm so excited." This got her fans excited too and were demanding for details to the package, but the hippy TV personality responded that: "Professionally, I'm not allowed to tell though I'm dying to tell my viewers."
Justine let go off her TV show a few weeks back and Tabloids reported that she had learnt of her impending dismissal so she tendered in her resignation. She was however quick to dispel those allegations when she noted that her earlier attempts to resign were blocked.
"I have made resignation attempts since April 2013 and I was begged to stay!", Justine noted on her wall. The issue of having left without a penny is behind her now. Amazingly, some of her male fans were busy letting her know of how they can't wait to have those hips on a TV set near them.

Bobi Wine is making headlines in Jamaica courtesy of his latest collaboration with dance-hall star, Mr. G formerly Goofy.
A few days back, 'Clean n Out', a collaboration by Bobi and Mr.G was released in audio and since then, the track has been receiving massive airplay on all radio stations. In the song, Bobi Wine is heard doing his Luganda Patois. He will soon be going to Jamaica to shoot a video for the same.
Bobi Wine now features on Jamaican entertainment blogs and among them is the number one Jamaican street chart, the Stampede which is having 'Clean n Out' as the Hot Combination of the Week starting July 22, 2013.
"When Jah tells us to fly, we don't fly like a plane, we fly like a rocket, Bobi noted as he communicated the news before thanking his fans for the support.
Stampede Street highlights the TOP fifteen Reggae songs and the TOP fifteen dance-hall songs of the week. Other artistes listed this week include: Hot New Riddim for the week goes to Brimstone Riddim, Alva is the hot new artiste on the rise.

Bad Black's ex lover Meddie Ssentongo has eventually been released after serving 18 months in Luzira Maximum Prison. The 30-year-old who was released this morning was arrested last year in connection with the Shs11bn that was embezzled from David Greenhalgh.
A few days back, he was able to access his wall like he's been doing anyway and he had this to say: "It seemed like never. But time judges all things. It has proved me wrong. I can not imagine it is over now. The one who laughs last laughs best. Thanks for your prayers and encouragement all you who were there for me during this turmoil. Love you all."
Unfortunately for him, he may not have as much pomp as he used to after the High Court authorized Greenhalgh's lawyers to attach all the property that was found to be in his names and his accomplice, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black who fled the country on being released for a medical check up.
Some of the properties that were seized include plots of land in Munyonyo and Entebbe, 3 Tundra pick-ups in the name of Meddie Ssentongo, houses in Najeera, unfinished houses in and around Kampala, plus several bank accounts, one of them having Shs 1,965,422,200 among others.

Last summer, the Maserati was blue in colour and she took a pic of herself seated right on its bonnet clad in a one piece American Flag bandeau cutout monokini swimsuit, this summer, she again posed still at the front of the posh ride in a blue and white thin centre monokini which is okay given the hot weather at the moment.
In the pics, the Lights on the navy blue and gold one are the same and so is the front grill except for the the lower bumper which now has some fog lights.
Barbara seems to have joined the likes of Ivan and Zari who are known for pimping cars. Zari's husband, Ivan Semwanga makes it look like he has two Lamborghini's, the white one and the orange one, but from the time the orange one came on board and later shipped to Uganda, the white one has never been spotted again.
Zari is also fond of changing car parts depending on the mood. For example, she changed the grill to her black Chrysler with 'ZARI' customised plates.
So it won't be surprising if the Florida based beauty has done the same.

You're Fired - Using his facebook wall at exactly midnight on Jul 20, 2013, Bebe Cool announced that Rehema Namakula aka Rema was not part of the Gagamel family anymore and that the Coccidiosis rehearsals will go on without her. Her place is likely to be filled by Irene Ntale, currently signed to Swangz Avenue.
The statement read: "I would like to officially announce the departure of Rema Namakula from Gagamel today." The Gagamel boss normally types with caps on but along the statement, he turned the caps low, trying to give the impression that he is calm as he stated the three reasons behind the sacking.
The 'Coccidiosis' singer who a few days back denounced booze and Shisha wished the 'Kukaliba' singer and also the girl with the deepest dimple in the country well. "Rema, I wish you luck and I pray Allah guides you through to your dreams," before reminding his fans of the launch dates for the Cocci or Cocodiosis album launch slated for 6th, 7th and 8th September, 2013.
Meanwhile, the shocking announcement came hours after Rema had just told the nation that all was well and she was still signed to the Gagamel family. This won't be a cool night for her and certainly not one of those nights that she can be in the mood for her fans to expect fire just like her latest club banger suggests.
The Masaka born star was formerly a back-up vocalist for veteran singer, Halima Namakula. She is behind songs like 'Oli Wange', 'Fire Tonight' with two collaborations with the Gagamel boss, 'Cease and Seckle', and 'Missing You'.
The fans are expressing various views on the latest developments with others saying that is an opportunity for another artiste to be trained. Kiwoko Boys are some of the artistes who have left the crew.
One Piano Pounds wrote: "Wait a minute..... see Nubian Lee has talent but because Bobi wont let him go...d guy can't reach his dream....Radio and Weasle are now making history...but wud they if they were still under Chameleone? Now Bebe for u u wanted this pretty gyal to b under yo feet till when? let the gyal go...yes storms and waves will flood her shore but sooner or later...she will b a sparkling star and ul sit smiling..."eh, oyo nze yamusa ku scene" act like tebikumalira budde.!"

Wonders never cease - Nile Avenue based Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) Horizon Vibes' Calvin Da Entertainer has been told by close pal McKenzie to get his girl friend, Amanda, pregnant.
RadioCity's McKenzie who refers to himself as a rude boy made this appeal through a post off his wall in which he was protesting what he termed as negative stuff written about Calvin, with whom they share a lot in common interests.
"One of the few friends that inspires me is Calvin (UBC)...many people wonder how I became friends with him coz he works on Tv, I work on Radio, he is small, am big..he is Kalule, am Sabiiti, he has a woman, I dont, am a father and he is working on it (I hope)..." McKenzie noted.
He seems to be worried about his pal who has been so close to his girl friend Amanda for a very long time and there's no child involved and yet they are in a stable and comitted relationship.
The Radio presenter who has not been very lucky in matters of love revealed more info about Calvin: "This guy is running the most popular Urban Musical show on Tv but right after his show, he goes to his farm (yes...he owns a farm)."
"This man doesn't rent (He has his own house on his own land)...he is among the 3 male celebrity friends i have that are in real committed relationships. Thanks for being a good friend Calvin...The Sky Is Below yo limit. (Naye also u...make that hot chic pregnant...ekintu kigwe)."
Many also wondered why he was advocating for pregnancy as opposed to marrying her first !

This evening, Victoria Hall at Serena Hotel was fully packed with soul music lovers who came in large numbers to witness the Afro, RnB star perform. Maurice Kirya did most of his songs that include; 'Musubaawa', 'Mulembe Gwa Kirya', 'Boda Boda' and 'Ugandan Girl' among others.
Victoria hall was filled to capacity to the extent that some of the fans resorted to sitting on the floor or standing. If you are a concert-goer that turns up late, you could easily find this particular one done. The show kicked off at about 7:15pm and by 9pm, revellers were relocating to other happening places.
The 1 hour and 30 mins live show saw some female fans proposing to him after the music got to their souls. Like it was the case at his launch last year, women were screaming all over while doing the 'Kirya Dance'. The stage, lighting and sound were top-notch. Kenyan pianist and Keyboardist, Aaron Rimbui and Ruyonga also performed.
Capt. Mike Mukula was among the guests that attended the show.

Now for starters, the mom of four who is way over 50 and still looking half that age is not only a 'Ssenga' but a certified professional when it comes to matters of 18 and over, at least going by her adults only show, 'Akasaale' on Bukedde TV.
Halima Namakula is a single mom of four (three boys and 1 girl). Her husband passed on in 1994 but the ambiguous status has set tongues wagging with some wondering what exactly was going on with the 'Amba Yayise Wano' singer.
Love at 50+ can also mean to be frustrating if Halima's status update is anything to go by but whatever the complications, the woman of over 50 is going through leave a lot to be desired joining the likes of Sharon O and Ronnie Mulindwa who joined the complicated racket a month back.
The veteran singer is behind tracks like 'Kibaduguda', 'Tonkutulakutula', Tuzina, Cheza and 'Sambagala' featuring Bebe Cool among others.

Star singer Jose Chameleone is back to work just days after his wife Daniella gave birth to baby Amma. The singer was forced to cut short his Badilisha American tour just to be around his wife. However, last Thursday (Jul 11), Daniella had to drive herself to Bugolobi where she eventually delivered. Chameleone was at the time performing in Kasanga at a Club Venom Facebook themed party.
On Jul 12, Chameleone had to travel to Masaka for a show at Trends Pub in Kaliisizo slated for the next day. The music Doctor then travelled back to Kampala on the night of (Jul 13). On Sunday(Jul 14), the star singer was spotted in his customised (MAYANJA) BMW driving towards Spenah Beach in Entebbe.
On Monday and Tuesday, Chameleone is believed to have kept around Daniella and the new born, Amma just to cope with the new environment. However, on Wednesday(Jul 17), duty was calling again, but before leaving for Bukavu-DR Congo, he pecked the eight-day-old baby with these words: "Amma Christian - See you when am back! Dad is always on the move- I love you son."
Next month, Chameleone will be performing live in Zambia alongside Leo Moyo whose stage name, K' Millian is similar to that of our very own music heavy weight.

The fans patiently waited to see what their diva was rolling out for them. The 'Nyumirwanyo' singer bounced back with a hot pic that revealed her curves and tummy tattoo with a message: "Have a nice weekend" to the over 30, 000 fans.
The fans got excited wishing her a nice weekend too but also advised her to cover up.
Desire was quick to respond to her fans: "Oh lovely people thanks but whoever has a problem, let me be.."Muja Kuba Bulungi" translated as It shall be well with you."
While in South Africa, Desire Luzinda was in the company of Ivan Semwanga at Lulli-Lulli hotel in Pretoria where she made quite an amount courtesy of the tycoon.

Part of Ronnie's message to Louisa reads in part: "You may be far away from Papa, but you're always close to my heart, I miss you and I hope mummy realises one day that you love your Papa so much and gives us a chance to share that love."
Ronnie's ex, Isabella who happens to be a former member of the Obsessions group is Louisa's mom, currently living in the UK with her lover and Ronnie's daughter.
However, Louisa has never forgiven Ronnie following an interview on NTV in 2010 when he was asked how many children he had and only said one, referring to Lisbon(4), his first child with ex BBA star, Sharon Salmon Nalukenge.
Meanwhile, Sharon O and Ronnie are still worlds apart as we only hope things get better for the sake of their son. Barely a month back, Zari and Ivan split after she(Zari) landed on Ivan and Ronnie Mulindwa's Sharon O feeling cozy, however, Ivan and Zari have since made up.
Zari is now speeding up the healing process and has put some checks and balances in place which include among others to delete her facebook account. The South African based couple is now on tour in the UK with their three boys after making up. Zari relates what happened to similar situations of a man cheating on his wife.
Tuesday, 16 July 2013
Zari will do whatever she has to do or what it takes to have Ivan back in her life and this is what is happening now. The couple landed safely in UK on Sunday and are currently residing at a 4 Star Oxford Street hotel. Zari's tweet says it all and the husband is parked right at the very hotel where they are staying.
It's three days short of the time when Zari bumped into Ivan Semwanga with ex-BBA Star Sharon O feeling cozy, something that made her run wild and walking out of her relationship with the father of her three boys. These were her words then:
"We have been separated for a year and we both moved on. He is seeing Sharon O and a bunch of other gals while am dating one Man who doesn't want drama (I will keep his name safe). There was no fight as reported by tabloids......he just learnt that day am dating again."
Its now a new chapter. The couple has made up and are on holiday with their three boys. Zari and the last born are busy shopping while Ivan and the two big boys are exploring opportunities in Manchester United Academy.
Ivan lost his cool a few months back and warned one Jaksaw to stop writing stuff about him and his family but he later realised that Jaksaw only reproduces what has been written elsewhere, he decided to calm down, no wonder while in the UK, he had to pay him a courtesy visit. Meanwhile, in all this, Sharon O is left hanging.
After Zari has reclaimed what rightfully belongs to her, not forgetting the terrible tweets about her love life that meant she had moved on after finding true love, we can only feel sorry for Sharon. We are yet to see if Ronnie will forgive her afterall, he has done that before. While in the Big Brother Amplified house, Sharon told Vimbai that Ronnie had forgiven her not once but twice for cheating, so anything is possible.

Yesterday, the GRANDPA of Ugandan music Ragga Dee real name Daniel Kazibwe paid a courtesy visit to the Ghetto president Bobi Wine at his One Love Beach in Busabala. The two music weights first enjoyed fish and chips plus their favourite drinks before embarking on the cruise.
Bobi Wine was cruising his costly yacht while Ragga Dee was in a black boat. Trust Bobi Wine, after taking a little too much, he could not go in the water without a life jacket. Ragga Dee later gave up on his boat to join Bobi Wine to get a feel of the Omubanda Wa Kabaka yacht.
In one of Bebe Cool's latest songs, one has a line that goes: 'Olina Amatto agebeeyi, ebyo biyamba gwe, Tomalira Budde' translated as: Your having costly boats does not help me in anyway, so don't waste my time. It would not be surprising if that particular line was aimed at Bobi Wine, like it has been in the past.
Ugandan artistes in general and these two in particular have been outing songs aimed at each other. However, the recent nomination of the Goodlyfe Crew in the 2013 BET Awards is likely to change this, because if you have to feature in those awards, certain things must change.

Anita Kyarimpa and Sandra Amongin were the first and second runners up respectively. Stella won herself a Mercedes Benz A-160 which will be serviced and fueled, UGX 18m and dinner for two at Lake Victoria Serena Hotel. Stella Nantumbwe beat 21 contestants to take the crown.
Singers Grace Nakimera and Lilian Mbabazi among others entertained the guests together with comedian Alex Muhangi. REDDS Uganda, makers of an alcoholic fruit flavoured beverage with a crisp, clean apple taste were the official sponsors of Miss Uganda.
Stella, an undergraduate with a Bsc in Business Computing will represent Uganda in the Miss World pageant that will take place in Indonesia on September 28, 2013 at Sentul International Convention Center (SICC) in Bogor, West Java. Bikini lovers are still getting to terms with the fact that their best part, the bikini event has been scrapped.
This will be the first pageant since 1951 to be held without bikinis. However, that section will be replaced by sarongs.

Ronnie is the same person who lost his girl friend of eleven years, and mother to his four-year-old boy to South African based tycoon Ivan Semwanga. Two years before meeting Sharon, Ronnie was having an affair with Isabella Nabuloli that resulted in a beautiful daughter,Louisa Angela Mulindwa.
Due to irreconcilable differences, things couldn't work out between the two ex-lovers and the next thing was separating. Isabella was staying with Louisa and during that time, Ronnie could not be allowed access to his daughter.
Ronnie had to seek legal redress but court decided in favour of the mother now that it was a girl child. He was however allowed to check on the daughter though his visiting rights were violated every time he went to check on her. This went on to the time Ronnie's daughter was smuggled out of the country.
The girl has now made 13 and this is Ronnie's message to her. "U may be far away from Papa. but ur always close to my heart. as am sure I am to urz. U remind me so much of my beautiful, naive teen years when u chose me to be ur papa. I miss u. I hope mummy realises one day that u love ur Papa so much just like I do and gives us a chance to share that love....love u my daughter, miss u very much !! .... ur loving Papa, " Ronnie noted on his wall.
Ronie later bounced back with this post: Should people who fail to work out in a relationship use children to get back at each other?
This was one of the posts from the respondents: Ronnie first keep low for now u won't manage court coz da guy who is in a rltship wz ure x is loaded jst kip praying 4 now give it time, and if u wanna play it da rough way ally wz Zari.

Weasel is good at having fun when it comes to these foreign trips. The last time he was in Norway during the Euro tour, he hooked up with Norway based Carol Ssengendo who has since been referred to as his significant other after their engagement in Kampala last month, but with the latest trip that put them on the global network of music after being nominated in the BET awards, their scope of 'fans' has widened.
A few days back, Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel also Chameleone's young brother was in the company of two yet to be identified babes having fun at the beach, from the pics, you could tell it was a good life 'ting dis'. Weasel was later spotted with a visibly pregnant babe feeling cozy.
Still in the in the US, Weasel was able to make up with his US based elder brother, Pallaso who was quoted a few weeks back complaining about how far apart the blood brothers are.
On a positive note though, their being nominated in the BET Awards has started paying off. The latest info we are getting is that by the time the Goodlyfe Crew come back home, chances are they would have been signed to Akon's Konvict Music Africa label. The duo tweeted about this development: "Signing a mega deal anytime soon."

It all started with a prayer by Seanice this morning to Sanyu FM listeners and within the prayer, Seanice asked God to bless the work of our hands. This got atheist Fatboy laughing all the way saying; "Isn't she advocating for masturbation by saying that."
This got to Seanice who hit her wall straightaway with these remarks:
"I offered up a prayer for our Wonderful Sanyu listeners this morning and James Onen aka Fatboy made a tasteless joke about me asking God to 'bless the work of their hands' in reference to masturbation.
I am disgusted at his appalling insensitivity honestly It's becoming too much - I will QUIT the show at this rate. You may not believe in God but have some RESPECT, you are turning people off immensely. Know your limits."
Last week, Fatboy held a boys only party where the guests were treated to free drama with exotic dancers twerking throughout the night. Seanice said that Fatboy was going through a mid-life crisis. Watch this space!

Jose Chameleone is a dad again - for the fifth time. His wife gave birth to baby boy Amma yesterday. Chameleone and Daniella now have three sons and one girl, Ayla who turns two in February.
Chameleone also has one daughter, Ayla from his previous relationship with Dorotia. He's not the only one with several children, his young brother Weasel is rumoured to have over a dozen kids.
The Ghetto president, Bobi Wine has been demanding for a fourth child from his wife Barbie but looks like this won't happen any time soon. Bobi Wine has three with Barbie and another child with his ex, Safina Mubiru based in the UK.
While congratulating Chameleone on his new bundle of joy, he wrapped up his message by telling his wife Barbie that she was next. In fact that night, he went with chocolate back home to try and convince Barbie to change her mind.
"Wow, uncle Bobi is the first to know about the arrival of baby Amma Christian Mayanja...Congratulations Chameleone, as for you Barbie, the writing is on the wall, I'm coming home," Bobi wrote on his wall.
Meanwhile, Barbie has been under pressure from friends, relatives and fans to have another baby following their wedding in 2011, but she won't succumb to their demands and has instead taken on to a different plan as summarized in her Tuesday post;
"I so love to have more children but I choose to instead join the rest of the country and concerned Organizations to try and make a difference by educating fellow women on how to play their part in preserving their lives and their children when pregnant."

In the 83rd minute of the game, a blast went off which many mistook for an electric shock. Minutes later, another blast went off leaving scores at Kyadondo and Ethiopian village dead.
Brenda suffered injuries on her left leg and arm and a deep cut on her head. Doctors later established that she had a shrapnel in the skull. It was during the second blast that Brenda noticed a head of one of the victims fly over her as she wailed in pain. Friends were able to rush her to Paragon hospital.
Brenda recalls that, on the fateful day, God was on her side because she started off the night with Garden City based Boda Boda bar before relocating to Kyadondo Grounds. On getting there, all the front row and middle seats were occupied ending up with a seat at the back and that is how she survived. Most people at the front never made it back home.
Other survivors of that night included Bebe Cool who was still nursing leg injuries that were sustained in the Nakumatt shooting and his wife Zuena Kirema.
Todate, Brenda still suffers some effects like irritating sound in her ears. Doctors have advised her to avoid getting stressed and annoyed as much as possible. Brenda now treasures every second of her life. She is currently very busy with her Miss Uganda 2013 project that will be held on July 13, 2013 at Kampala Serena Hotel.

Chameleone's wife welcomed a son named Amma Christian Mayanja on Thursday at Bugolobi based Paragon Hospital, a few minutes to 2am. At the time, the 'Badilisha' star was performing at the Club Venom Facebook Party and on getting the good news, he rushed to join his dear wife.
At about 5am, Chameleone who was thrilled to welcome a new member to the family hit his wall on ensuring that the mom and baby were doing fine with these words:
"It's Life, That most of the times we are away from what we love the most. I am thankful for the beautiful family that God has blessed me with. And no matter what you will always come first! We together would like to celebrate the joy from MAYANJA family With you as we welcome our new baby AMMA CHRISTIAN MAYANJA. Our new born baby. I LOVE YOU Daniella Atim Mayanja.

Last year, Zuena added cake baking to her CV through her Zuena Pastries and the business has since been growing. Today, while enjoying her milk shake and sponge cake at CafeJavas, Bebe Cool's boo just took a little piece of the sponge cake and within seconds, she noticed that the cakes she bakes at Zuena Pastries in Ntinda are far better than the ones at CafeJavas.
"Comparing notes but I must admit my cakes are way tastier, no bragging." Now if Zuena's words are anything to go by, her phone should be buzzing by now with people placing orders for standard cakes and Ramadhan festival cookies.
During McKenzie's birthday last month, Zuena was seen feeding him with a piece of a birthday cake that she made from Zuena Pastries but from the look on the birthday boy's face, you can tell that the cakes are yummy.

Justine took to her wall lamenting on how "her show" was broadcasting and yet she was not paid a penny after tendering in her resignation.
"While I was watching Life stories today I remembered wat I went thru just to get that show filmed; even Golola the guest recalls vividly; it was hell but today even with me gone without a salary or a small thanks; such a show is aired and pple watch and appreciate! Any way Golola has a rich and amazing story. Soon ull watch it on my new show- well told and organized."
That very evening, NTV news anchor, Josephine Karungi Musisi who says they aren't friends with Justine, was busy amusing her close pals with these ''words of wisdom.''
"When things go haywire, you can ride on sympathy....but not for too long, some of your sympathizers always expect you to get up on your feet and prove to them that they were not sympathizing with a liar or a complete (___)."
"Do not ever justify your incompetence by shifting blame. It only makes you more incompetent. Take responsibility and learn to do better. It makes you a better person and it makes it easier for everyone - knowing they can never count on you."
Justine promises to be back sooner rather than later at a TV station near you. Recently, Miles Rwamiti left Bukedde TV only to bounce back on with 'Koona Ne NTV', Douglas Lwanga's fans are all excited following his debut show on NTV yesterday after he resigned from Record TV a few months back.

New Orleans born Jazz trumpeter Michael Stewart will also perform on that day.
Tickets will go on sale starting July 31 from Payway machines and other designated places that will be communicated in due course. This year's event is sponsored by British Airways, Rwenzori Premium and Payway.
The Jazz safari was started way back in 2008 by Tshaka Mayanja and he says that: "This has been one of the toughest line-ups I've ever had to assemble. They are all very busy and so renowned that getting them here has been so hard."
Between August and October, Keith Sweat has eighteen shows, so that's just how busy he can mean to be on a good day.

On Monday, listeners of Sanyu FM breakfast show should expect a heated on-air exchange between Fatboy and Seanice.
It all started with the boys only party that was held last Thursday by Fatboy, but the guests failed to finish all the beers, prompting Fatboy to call for another party that could see them finish the beers.
This must have rubbed Seanice the wrong way prompting these words: "Someone I see almost daily is going through a mid-life crisis; wonder if I should tell him....hmmmm."
One Peter chipped in with these words: "Help him get a wife first..he may die of video games and alcohol with no heir to his big flat screen...talk to him nicely about it..it is easy to decipher..
But on a serious note, when a man starts to boast about his TV, then something is totally wrong. Our grand fathers used to boast about no of wives, children, farms and cows. Men of these days boast about big cars, businesses, houses/buildings, and yes, women. But a TV and sijui video games? Let me stop here, it is a sato. Time to unwind after a long day.."
Fatboy got wind of this and shot back tactfully - "When people criticise you about your life it means they're bored with theirs and so they attack you out of a need to feel better about their miserable selves. People who are happy with their lives don't have the time or interest to dwell on yours. Just do your thing, and let the haters hate :–)"
Marvyn closed the chapter by advising the two to get married to each other: "You know what? You should just get married to her so that the noise you both make about your lives and marriage can fade! After all your used to her throwing her wits allover and you counteract ably, some men would choose a rather more physical way to calm her down! just saying incase its applicable to this update."

The 'Nkyanoonya' singer recalled of how she met Moze Radio at a bar in Rubaga, back then when he was unknown with only one hit, 'Sweet Lady' the only song he played as he curtain raised for the ''BIG Artistes''. Juliana adds that on that day, she told her pals that: "There's something about that guy's voice that's very special, I have a strong feeling one day he'll be very successful not only in Uganda but Africa n beyond."
In her words, the diva seems to have discovered Moze Radio back then, no wonder, she is now a judge charged with the responsibility of identifying talent in aspiring musicians.
Juliana concludes: "So as someone who saw that boy in a small bar in Rubaga, seeing him come from that to THE BET AWARDS, means one thing, the God we serve is an amazing God and once he has put his hand on you, no one can take it away. Never under estimate the power of talent!!!"
Meanwhile, Juliana was planning something big with Iryn Namubiru, but looks like all these plans were thwarted by the problems that befell her (Iryn) a few months back. Iryn has now moved to France to try and clear her mind following the Japan saga and the death of her dad.

By 7pm yesterday, the invited guests had started arriving at the Naguru based top hang-out. Booze was in constant flow and now that Fatboy had a morning show that starts at 6am, time was of essence. If you are an ardent follower of the Breakfast show on Sanyu FM, you must know that, twerking has been the in thing for Fatboy in the last few weeks.
The party that comprised of mainly bikini dancers kicked off with the gals doing what F-Bizzy loves most, twerking as they teased all the male folks that turned up for the twerky party. Fatboy looked relaxed as he sipped his favourite drink while pretending to smoke a cigar.
"Without a doubt, this party had lots of pretty gals. That is what I promised, and that is what I delivered to my boyz. We had a B.L.A.S.T. And we're going to do this again, very soon," Fatboy commented on his wall. Had it not been for his show that starts in the wee hours of the morning, the 30 lucky guys could have had the party till dawn.

We recently told of how Desire Luzinda traveled to South Africa for a show but amazingly, when not on stage, the 'Ndikundobo' singer was in the company of Zari's ex, Ivan Semwanga. The tycoon splashed money like a Nigerian Oga every time Desire wiggled her waist line.
At some point, Ivan was challenged to do a verse from one of Luzinda's songs, but at the time, he had been knocked down by the champagne to the point that he could hardly open his eyes, but being the tycoon he is, he opted on splashing money and that is how he was let off the hook.
Conspicuously, Zari and Sharon O were missing giving Desire ample time with the tycoon.The Goodlyfe Crew and D'sire have a collaboration song together dubbed Fitting, but since the duo were not with her at the time, she decided to sing to Ivan as she murmured to him that: We're Fitting as he responded in a low husky voice; ''TuFittinga''
Meanwhile, as Ivan and Zari were seated while the MC did his thing, some yet to be identified guy was all taken up by Desire's curves. The guy could not keep his eyes off her curves.

They may not like you, but be sure they feel you...You made history, you have played your part..you certainly deserve a Heroes welcome, you deserve a tax holiday from the government and most of all, you deserve respect......I will slaughter a pig for you when you come back".
That was Bobi Wine's latest post on the Goodlyfe Crew who are still in the US after attending the BET Awards ceremony that was held at Nokia Theatre in L.A last Sunday. However, Bobi's remarks have left many fans disturbed by the way he chose to celebrate the first Ugandans to grace the Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards.
Moze Radio who is still excited about being the first Ugandans to be nominated had this to say: "fellow dreamers don't stop dreaming...dreams can surely come true...we are just one leap away... let's gooooooooo."
Many fans who had hoped to be part of this celebration have now been turned down by the 'Akalimu' singer's way of doing things. Bobi Wine will now have to celebrate this landmark achievement with a handful of fans.
The 2013 BET Nominees will be performing live at Underbar Super Lounge located at 279 Tremont St, Downtown Boston on Thursday, Jul 04, 2013.

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."
He later said that the above status had nothing to do with his affair with Sharon. However, all those were indications to bigger problems. Just yesterday, he shared an inspirational message with his close pals, and he urges them to be thankful if at all they have this type of partner:
Be Thankful if you have a partner who is proud of you, loves you, cares about you and fears to hurt your feelings. The message continues; Be Thankful because you have a sweet heart who replies your facebook messages in time and also answers your phone in time.
The inspirational message from Dr. Gero Albs concludes that: If you have got such a person, you have every reason to treat them right because they are a rare type.

Justine Nameere, a reality talk show host and producer surprised her fans when she suddenly announced her resignation on facebook.
Justine who had a show on NTV quit after 26 months of being with the station and she is considering taking a break and promises to come back with a bang as she has a lot in store.
"Today I resigned from NTV. I have faced many challenges in recent months, that have ripped me of the balance I had secured between work and my education yet education is the core in life. Thanks to NTV for the opportunity but I have to let go. My dear guests, viewers and fans thanks for the endless love and support. Please don't get upset, consider this a break, I have a lot in stock for yo," Justine explained on her wall.
It's not clear if Justine will take the show to competitor stations, but at least from her statement, it's evident that she has been faced with lots of challenges that have led her to take this direction.
In a related development, Douglas Katogo, formerly of Record TV is now on NTV and the former Katogo presenter is more than ready for his debut show that will run starting today from 5pm to 6:30pm

Much as Drake who was absent from the award ceremony had 12 nominations, he only walked away with three that included; Video of the year, Collaboration and Coca-Cola Viewer's Choice Award. Our stars, Moze Radio and Weasel were quick to congratulate Ice Prince shortly after and resorted to popping champagne for the rest of the night.
Tweeting from Nokia Theatre, the duo wrote: "Tonyt we take a step to triumph..wherever we go we carry our nation with us..as da world converges to celebrate art, to celebrate talent from across the world, we are happy to have our great nation UGANDA mentioned in the loud screams..we already feel like winners to be here and if we win, we win for you our fans, our families our friends and nation..Uganda at the BET awards 2013...we made it here..."
Moze Radio promised to fight Ice Prince in another battle which is likely to be next year in the same category. "A battle well fought...big up Uganda for the love ...n congratulations Ice Prince..we'll fight another day..bless and thanks for the love."
"Uganda Uganda Uganda Uganda Uganda Uganda Uganda... we came all the way to california for you n we thank you for your endless support for us..we r so humbled to represent u...ooh my eyes can't stop watering coz this means the world to us...ooooohhhh we r soooooooooooo proud to be here..."

The giant tattoo above Zari's stretch marks is meant to detract the eyes of her new lover, Jay from the LK4 tattoo that she tried to cover up last month but failed. Zari should be emulating her ex, LK4 who has tattoos all over his body with hardly any space left on his body.
Meanwhile, as part of her role as the 2013 Ambassador for the Miss Asia Pacific World, she is slated to travel to London, China, USA(Dallas). The socialite will come back to Uganda before wrapping up the year with South Korea.
One thing is for sure though, Zari seems to be happy with her new found love who even spices up their love with recipes if these words are anything to go by: "My boo gotta toss up seasonings before he cooks me a meal the same way Lebron tosses that baby powder before games..."

Now that the black ride has no registration plates yet, his pals were suggesting 'SHARON O' as it's personalized licence plate. It should be noted that a few days back, his young brother, King Lawrence went to an extent of photoshopping Sharon O plates to a similar ride and days later, Ivan hits the showroom for a black Range Rover Sport, could this be for Sharon O? we're watching that space.
However, the news of fans proposing to Ivan that the new ride bears Sharon O customized plates did not go down well with one of Zari's sisters, Ashurah, who hit back shortly after: "Where does Zari or shallow O Come in here. Don bought d car for himself. If u got nothing to comment abt d car. Take ur nonsense somewhere else."
Ivan was last night at Lulli Lulli hotel watching Desire Luzinda wiggle her waist as she did some of her tracks that include: 'Ndikundoobo' and 'Musujja' among others.
Meanwhile, the Sharon O pressure is weighing down on Zari to the extent that, she has been forced to deactivate her facebook account for a few days to allow this whole thing cool down.

Isaac Lugudde aka LK4 was yesterday all over his South African based boo, Koketso Modiba at Bugolobi based Gatto Matto and could not allow her move an inch. The basket ball star's fingers were busy accessing all areas of the South African Big Brother 8 representative who had just flown in from New York.
Yesterday, was rather a busy day for the couple as they went to Multichoice offices, had lunch at Legends, plus a courtesy visit to LK4's mom among others. LK4 made it a point that the lass from South Africa attends the Buganda Kingdom Royal family meeting where she had a photo moment with the Buganda Queen, Sylvia Nagginda.
LK4 was able to get himself a tunic but must have failed to secure a 'gomesi' for Kokesto who ended up meeting The Nnaabagereka (Queen) of Buganda clad in her micro mini that left her yellow thighs to the full display of some royals. Koketso is now convinced LK4 is next in line to the King not after attending the royal family meeting.
The BBA8 couple crowned off the day by attending the Poetry session at the Gatto Matto and later at Club Rouge. The couple left to their next destination but with all intentions written all over them.
It's not clear what LK4's gal Cynthia is up to right now, but LK4 seems more than prepared to take this affair to another level. This afternoon, he shared a pic as he tightly held Koke's waistline with these words: "People can be angry, hate, jealous or even doubt but this journey/battle is protected by God with soldiers of love!" Nuff Said!

The issue of Sharon O has now taken yet another twist. Zari who is currently in South Africa was yesterday detained briefly before her young brother, Karim Hassan came to her rescue. The boss lady has been going through a lot lately from the time she bumped into Sharon O and hubby feeling cozy in a car.
Much as Zari in her statement claimed that they had talked with Sharon O and also blessed her to move on, it was actually the other way round. On finding the hubby and Sharon, The EX Big Brother star threatened to go public about it, but trust Zari, she had to be the one to let the world know even before Sharon O could gather herself.
The latest fight between Zari and Ivan that led to her being detained briefly stems from Ivan Semwanga's young brother, King Lawrence. This is the very guy that was so happy that his brother had got Nickita, the babe who eventually was given a BMW.
King Lawrence went an extra mile to even photoshop some customised number plate in the name of SHARON O and placed it on a grey Range Rover Sport just to hit at Zari. This is when Zari together with her gals went to attack Sharon and Ivan over the matter.
However, along the way, police was called in to quell the situation and Zari was arrested. Meawhile, as Zari was still in and her young brother Karim was trying to get her bail, King Lawrence was like; "Why even bother to get her out, leave her there, that's where she belongs."
Moments later, Zari was released and first on her agenda was to tell off King Lawrence. "Man you are g#y, and no am not locked up, stick to being his mushikaje (mukwasi wansawo ) as for me....sili ur business. Let Ivan worry abt me not you. Last I checked he is concerned abt my well being & his sons....luwuba empale mbu lulina say. Kuki, nga ani? Nga otandikidewa.....? Lmao", Zari said.
Talking to one of her sisters, Zari said that no matter how many girls he(King Lawrence) brings for his brother (Ivan), I'm going nowhere and I have a business with Ivan.

The duo were forced to show off their visas that were issued last Friday after word was spreading like wild fire that they had been denied visas due to the rate at which Ugandan artistes were smuggling drugs into foreign countries.
The Goodlyfe Crew are nominees in The Best International Act- Africa. Justin Timberlake and Erykah Badu are some of the stars who will rock the mic on that day.

If you are a die hard fan of the Goodlyfe Crew, then you must be knowing one of their songs dubbed 'Lamborghini' which features Ivan and his orange beast.
In the song, the 2013 BET nominees sing about a babe who likes to drive a Lamborghini just like Ivan, that babe must have been Sharon O after Ivan's wife, Zari came out publicly to say that the 2011 Ugandan Big Brother All Stars rep was dating her husband.
One Kakensa pulled her leg that he is meant to understand that the Lamborghini has already been transferred to Sharon Nalukenge's name.
Zari was quick to respond: "Hahaha you think Ivan is that stupid, come on give that guy credit. He knows all these girls want money and he is good at his game. If they think they want to use him, they will end up being used.
That was not all, Zari assured him on how impossible it is for the Lambo to be transferred now that it bears South African registration plates. "By the way that car is on SA plates not UG for it to have any name changes, taxes should be paid, that's just wolox."
On the other hand, Sharon O has a response to Ronnie following his wishing her luck with the Sangoma. "No relationship is ever a waste of time. If it didn't bring you what you want, it taught you what you want," Sharon tweeted.
Meanwhile, as all this drama continues to unfold, Ivan has announced yet another package for the Uganda Cranes during their next match in Guinea come Sept 7, 2013. Ivan who will charter a private jet with 50 Ugandan fans from SA and his buddy King Lawrence will this time around reward the Uganda Cranes with Shs10m per goal scored.

Ex models and best friends forever, Meg Wollesen and Priscilla Ray are on holiday in New York. Its been close to three weeks now since the girls checked in at Roosevelt Hotel, one of the luxurious hotels in NY and have since been clubbing, attending beach parties and sampling the city's best cuisines and sea foods.
The epitome of their holiday was when they took a helicopter tour of Manhattan in NY city giving them a clear view of The Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn bridge among others. Denmark based Meg and Ray are best of friends right from the time when they were both under Sylvia Owori's Zipper models.
We broke the news of Meg's wedding to Wollesen that was held in October 2012 here in Kampala and Priscilla Ray read one of the wedding bible verses, since then, the girls had not yet met to catch up on lost time. Before Meg's wedding, the ex models were at a Zanzibar beach enjoying the white sand, which they love very much.
Priscilla Ray took that love to another level by buying land at the shores of Lake Victoria for purposes of setting up a beach. In one of the publications, she said that she was self employed, owns a cattle farm in her home district, Fort Portal and manages properties in Kampala.
Ray added that while pursuing her Masters in the UK, she only slept for three hours per night, short of that, her nights were spent in the library....!

May be she was right, may be she was wrong. Sharon O has left Ronnie with whom they have a son, and eloped with socialite Zari Hassan's husband, Ivan Ssemwanga, the dad of her three sons.
Sharon O has been with Ronnie right from their school days to the time when they started The Obsessions Group that had been reduced to only two members standing, Sharon O and Jackie O who recently decided to pursue solo careers.
When Iryn says, It's the small things that count, she is right because with all those years the couple has been dating, Sharon had not yet held an introduction ceremony at her parent's home like other galz do. It should also be noted that her scope had widened following the Big Brother exposure. But then again, Ronnie will disagree with Iryn after the mother of his son, the one they've been with through thick and thin decides to walk out on him after all those years.
Sharon is one patient woman and her patience was tested during the Big Brother All stars house when she turned down all the men like Michael from Zimbabwe who were on her case throughout the three months she was in the house, but she was able to leave the house not only as a finalist but her cake was intact.
Meanwhile, from the time Sharon changed her facebook status at the end of last month to reflect 'Complicated', her tweets seem to suggest that she has moved on and no turning back;
Wednesday, 19 June 2013
Sharon O's Ronnie Mulindwa has been forced to speak out now that it's in the public domain they aren't together anymore.
"My intellect, my integrity, my loyalty, my devotion, my love, my care, my patience, my guidance through the years, my understanding and support can and will never be doubted nor questioned all has been availed without holding back. We can only be judged by our actions. Good luck, " Ronnie wrote.
Eagle's Production member, Mesach Semakula was among the first one's to console him with this post: "There are far better things ahead, take heart bro."
Meanwhile, as all this is going on, Ivan is busy inspecting construction works at one of his colleges in Pretoria and he says that "In 2014, we are going hard leaving all nonsense in 2013." Not so sure if Zari who is still getting to terms with what she saw over the weekend is part of the nonsense, but this is what she is telling galz out there:
"While some of you ladies are searching for a rich husband, I'm focusing on being a rich wife...lol"
Sharon O's Latest Tweet
Wednesday, 19 June 2013
Back to the story of the day. "We have been separated for a year and we both moved on. He is seeing Sharon O and a bunch of other gals while am dating one Man who doesn't want drama (I will keep his name safe). There was no fight as reported by tabloids......he just learnt that day am dating again."
In her latest post, Zari seems to be okay with Sharon O and Ivan Ssemwanga dating at least from the way she summarizes it here: "As for Sharon she has been coming to SA and she has my blessing we had a talk because I did move on from Ivan. So lets not get anything twisted. Good morning," Zari concluded.
Zari's status indicates that she is single while at the end of last month, Sharon O's status changed to Complicated prompting her boy friend, Ronnie Mulindwa to change his status too to reflect 'Complicated' on Jun 01, 2013, now you know why. Rumour has it that Ivan has gone ahead to buy a mansion for Sharon O in Munyonyo.
Like Zari says, they've been separated for a year and somehow they had chosen to keep this on the low but this is what sparked Zari's latest actions. Last Saturday, Zari got wind of the fact that Sharon O was in there area code down South and as she trailed the hubby, the 'Ambassador' landed on the hubby with Sharon O......!
And these words followed: "Ivan, Thank you for ruining what was best for me, I hope you gain from it with your selfish ways…..." Meanwhile, a few days back, Ivan was rumoured to be celebrating a baby gal in the bun, could it be Sharon! Watch this space!

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.

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 resistance to tear gas or its just a light version of tear gas that was being used!

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.

"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.

"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.

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.

"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"
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"

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.

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.
Each country had two housemates, but 14 days later, Uganda has none. Did you think LK4 was the best candidate to leave?

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.

"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.

"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.
Days later, it turned out that her manager hand a hand in this whole saga leading to his being fired. Thaddeus issued an apology to the songstress. Iryn has now gone ahead and replaced him with Balaam Barugahara, the CEO of Balaam Marketing who will assume his new role four days from now.
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.

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."

"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."

Monday, 03 June 2013
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.

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.

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.
Friday, 31 May 2013
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.

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."

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.
Meanwhile, Zari's rate of tweeting has reduced from the time the news leaked that LK4 was to rep Uganda in the Big Brother House.

"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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."
Wednesday, 15 May 2013
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.

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.
This is so unfortunate, because innocent as Iryn may look, she was found with drugs and it's not clear how she will avoid the long arm of the law. One British national, Nicholas Baker was arrested at Narita airport with illicit drugs, court proceedings took one year and was later sentenced to 14 years, a shs120m fine was given and forced labour. Iryn still needs your prayers.

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.
He will be buried on Sunday in Lugazi at 2:00pm.

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..!
Thursday, 09 May 2013
"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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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"
In their message, the dynamic duo don't seem to recognise their mentor and yet when Bobi Wine appreciated their Music, they were quick to say, Thank You.
The Obudde album will be held on May 10, 2013 at Hotel Africana and later pundits will compare notes with the Badilisha concert to see to it if their statement is valid.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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."
Meanwhile, the 'Ka Number' singer, Rebecca Jingo has not been heard on air since then. Her fans on 96.3 Beat FM are yearning for her voice but to no avail as she is still recovering from the 'Kwanjula' excitement.

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.

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.

"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.

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:
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!

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 '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!

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!

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.

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.

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
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..."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
In December 2011, Andras Nagy Thumped Golola Moses inspite of several groin attacks from the Ugandan kick-boxer and in June 2012, Zsamboki Mate almost took him out of action to the extent that he was just running, sitting or kneeling while in the ring as the experienced Zsamboki unleashed more kicks and punches on him.
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.

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."

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...
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.

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.

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
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.

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 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.

"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.

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?..."

"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."

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.

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.

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.

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.
