The last king of Ombokolo, Patrick Idringi, aka Salvador had landed a movie role in the Hollywood circles and was acting as Father Moses, but just after two days, he has fallen out with the production crew saying that he can't work with a producer who is disrespectful.
"I lowered my Standards all in the name of experiencing the thrill of working with a Hollywood director who was really on point and knew what he was doing on this "low budget movie" but getting disrespected by the producer was just ridiculous... I've really worked so hard for my name to be taken for granted."
"Didn't ask for much but just mutual respect and understanding. Anyway, new opportunities will come my way I know for sure but for now... Let me say I'm sticking to comedy and my beloved Beneath The Lies."
A week back, Salvador was interviewed by a team from CNN for their Passion to Portfolio version that features individuals who have found as much success with their hobbies as they have for their careers.
Salvador is an Engineer by profession and was working with telecom giant, MTN, but resigned his job to concentrate on comedy.

A week back, social networks were awash with information of Bobi Wine's DNA results that revealed that his UK based son was not his biological child.
Bobi came out to say that much as he was not disputing anything, that was not the way he presents his issues. However, he has now come out to clear the space and confirms that, it's true, the DNA test was done and the findings were not any different from what you already know.
"Yes, I took the child for a DNA test, and yes the DNA results proved beyond reasonable doubt that I'm not his biological father, and yes, I called his mother and he did not deny anything. She came clean, told me everything and she apologized to me, and that is the end of the story."
"As for 'my son' Simon, me and him know that we have been father and son for all his life now and we shall forever be father and son. A strong bond was created between us and not even DNA can challenge my relationship with him. He loves me and I love him very much. I had to put up with a lot to be his father and I can still put up with more to stay close to my little soldier."
"I will continue to take full responsibility of him, but him alone and being the father figure that he has always known. He is my child, all his brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles, every body loves him, nothing will change."
"I will only request Safina to apologise to all parties involved for telling a lie and maintaining for so long that it caused so much pain, embarrassment and confusion. After that, let's wish each other a happy year."
Barbie is still tight-lipped on the matter while Safina has now deleted her facebook profile.

Radio Consultant, Joel Isabirye is back, this time with a beautiful and photogenic Lillian Mukasa who is widely believed to have replaced Rebecca Jjingo.
It should be recalled that towards the end of last year, Joel fell out badly with Rebecca just when they were about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.
His right hand man, Isaac Katende aka Kasuku is the happiest and has since been telling close pals to be ready for the introduction ceremony while sharing hot shots of Lillian on his wall.
Joel has maintained that she is an employee of one his companies who performed so well last year and only wishes she could perform better this year.
Last week, Lillian made a post that left a lot to be desired; "To me getting married twice, even thrice doesn't mean something is wrong with you, it just means you are picking the wrong people to marry, lol."
The above statement linked to Joel's ex lovers leaves nothing to the imagination. About seven years ago, Isabirye wedded Grace Naisamura but crashed in 2009, Sharon Nagadya followed, she also introduced him to her parents, they split in 2011 then came Rita Kaggwa and Rebecca Jjingo.
It takes a really good person to say such words that Lillian used up there..

Simon Kyagulanyi is not my son.... Say's Bobi Wine.
"This is my whole story and I have evidence on everything. 7 years ago I met a one gal in London called Safina. By then I was not married and I made a mistake of my life. It was once and the next week this gal claimed that she was pregnant. Ng'omusajja omuganda I was happy to have a new member of the family. I have been taking responsibilities as a father and no one was complaining."
"This Christmas season, I invited Simon as my son to spend the festival with his fellow brothers and sisters. As soon as the boy landed in UG from UK, I said no, I have to do it this time, so I secretly without any other persons knowledge took him for a DNA test coz for so long I have been suspecting this."
"Ashburg to my surprise or let me call it shock relief, the results are back and guess what? SIMON KYAGULANYI is not my son. Not even Barbie or Saphina knows this. I have decided to make u a star by giving u this info first and any question about this u will be the first to get the answer."
Proof of DNA test results and other concrete evidence will be out. I'm so sorry for my boy Simon but your mum is responsible. I'm sorry Barbie that you had to go through such pain, I'm sorry my family and fans. Shadrak, Shalom & Solomon are my only 3 biological kids as of 20th/01/2015."
That was a post made by Bobi Wine's right hand man, Kato, but after a few minutes, Bobi Wine made this post;
"It has never been my style putting my personal/family matters in the media and it's not going to start now, those (above) are words of Ashburg Kato AND NOT MY WORDS! I believe NOT EVERYTHING IS FOR MEDIA ATTENTION, especially where there are young innocent souls involved."
AGAIN, Bobi made this post, not denying what Kato had written and also not blaming what Kato had written either.
"Am not dashing fire at Kato, all am saying is, that is not my press release, it might have some facts in it but that's not how I present my self and my issues, some issues are actually not worth presenting."

This is what King Lawrence posted a few minutes back regarding Zari's pregnancy. "The smile you put on when you find out that your ex is pregnant at 41." Interestingly, in all these developments, Ivan has been tight-lipped while King Lawrence does the talking.
A few days back, he appealed to Diamond Platnumz to give Zari a break so she can attend to her children, he even offered $40,000 to Platnumz if he honoured his request, moments later, Zari shared pics of her and the 3 soldiers 'chillaxing'.
Using her wall, Zari issued a statement saying that it's not true she had dumped the kids to have fun with Platnumz, it was Ivan's turn to take care of the boys.
This morning, news of Zari's ultra-scan details confirming that she is pregnant have been making rounds on social networks and Diamond can't wait to lay his hands on what he is terming as Chibubu Junior...
In a related development, Ivan, King Lawrence and ex-con Meddie Ssentongo were this morning signing a deal of sorts confirming that they will be having some dealings together, details of which could not readily be established.

King Lawrence and Zari together? That's right! It's shocking bearing in mind that these two were having a serious exchange on facebook a few days back. Going by the above pic, it looks like Zari and King Lawrence are already back on good terms or it won't be long before they mend ties.
Zari and King Lawrence met today at the Rich Gang welcome party that was held at Fountain Valley Gardens in Pretoria. It was a picnic party sponsored by King Lawrence, Cheune and Zari's on-and-off hubby, Ivan Semwanga.
Days back, King leaked a whatsapp chat in which Zari was asking for big money and as it turned out, King gave her $5000 and on top of that hit it. Zari tried to label him as a driver to their college, but this just made matters worse, this was when he retaliated with these words; "Why did you give it to a faggot?"
During the fight, King revealed how he slept with Zari, the mother of Ivan's three soldiers.
Kenyan socialite, Huddah Monroe, was also dragged in the fight

Jose Chameleone, otherwise referred to as Milliano has shocked his fans in an 18-sec-video in which he cuts his left index finger and as if that is not cruel enough, he sucks the blood.
The video was captioned with these words; "Don't scare me, well equipped for 2015, Leaone Island Music Empire."

King Lawrence VS. ZARI
Rich Gang crew member, King Lawrence, has shot back after Zari revealed that he was just a mere driver at their school who could even be fired.
King Lawrence had earlier accused Zari for not being there for her children and was all over Africa with Tanzania's finest, Diamond Platnumz.
Using his wall, King revealed that the Nataka Kulewa singer needs to know that he has hit the boss lady before, but also offered Diamond Platnumz $40,000 to leave Zari alone so that she can take care of her three sons.
Dating Zari should be one complicated aspect her lovers have had to deal with and as it turns out, King Lawrence , has also had a thing with Zari as he reveals in the above screen shots.
In one of them, Zari (who adds your in-law) is asking for real big money and not pocket change from King who she claimed in an earlier post was a mere driver. King follows it with a question; "Madam why did you supply your desert* to a faggot? Wonder if that boy knows that I hit it first."
Zari down played all this by saying they were hating on her because she is happy.
"Ma dude (Platnumz) needs a b***h too, that gay-eish thing of yours is not on point. Baby daddy (Ivan) failed to "wife" you all this time you've been fighting his battles, you think Diamond Platnumz will? So it's true, when they see you happy, they start hating more huh?"
Zari has this morning left for South Africa while Diamond Platnumz is in Nigeria.

Zari and Ivan's cousin, King Lawrence, are at it again.
"Chilling with Zari's son because his mom is D!ck Hopping all over Africa. It's the son's birthday, " King Lawrence wrote this afternoon. Hours later, ZARI revealed that King was recruited as a driver at their college in South Africa and at this rate, he risks being fired.
"If all drivers posted their boss' kids when asked to execute duties of dropping their boss' kids to some place, then the world would be some thing else.
Glad to have you on our Brooklyn City College pay roll as our part timer driver when you run broke, just don't abuse your work ethic code of conduct as an employee by posting my kids seeking attention from it.
Your job is to drop them when asked to do so as a driver. PERIOD!"
They first fought in 2013 when Zari split with Ivan over Sharon O, King photoshopped a 'Sharon O' number plate with claims that Ivan had bought Sharon O a Range Rover Sport. This did not go down well with Zari and her gals who decided to hunt down Sharon O, but she was arrested before laying her hands on Sharon O.
Zari's young brother, Karim (who accused Zari of dating Platnumz who is 9 years younger than her) tried getting bail for his sister but King LAWRENCE said; "Why even bother to get her out, leave her there, that's where she belongs."
Ivan has not had a smooth run from the time he was nabbed with ex BBA Housemate. It was then that Zari embarked on an open dating spree that saw her moving out with Isaac Lugudde aka LK4, Farouk Sempala and now Tanzania's finest Diamond Platnumz.
Blood is thicker than water, King Lawrence has stayed by Ivan's side at all times and will once in a while try to hit at Zari like it was today, but Zari is not about to take any of that BS!, She will hit back.
Tuesday, 06 January 2015
Diamond Platnumz' ex lover, Wema Sepetu, has said she has no problem with Diamond dating Zari.
"It didn't work out between us and I wish him all the best in his new relationship. They look good together," Wema said during a radio interview in Dar-es-Salaam.
Wema and Diamond had dated for over three years only to break up a couple of months back. Last September, the Bongo star bought Wema a brand new BMW as a birthday gift.
In the just concluded AFRIMA awards, Diamond Platnumz and Vanessa Mdee won the Best Male and Female Artistes in East Africa respectively, but Wema only congratulated Vanessa.
In her new year's message, she reveals that the year 2014 was quite an experience for her.
"Happy New Year my beautiful people, 2014 was quite an experience, went through a lot of things, had my ups and downs. I know I have learnt and for sure can't make the same mistakes I made earlier. God I pray for 2015 to be my year and I'm gonna make it my walk to remember."
Zari is right now in Kampala and will be heading to South Africa tomorrow while her boo, Diamond Platnumz is in Lagos for a performance at the GLO-CAF awards.
Zari has found the love of her life in Diamond Platnumz at least from her latest post; "No man on earth is perfect but when he shows effort in keeping you happy, acknowledge that."
Monday, 05 January 2015
They've been an item since November last year, and now, they are so close to the point that Zari has kept the Bongo flava star on a tight leash.
Any hot female that dared to get close to Diamond Platnumz would have it rough with the bouncers who were guarding the couple while on tour in Rwanda and Burundi.
"That look you pull when he smiles at someone you don't like. Smh!!....Good nyt and happy new week fam..... the hustle continues," Zari noted on her wall.
At this rate, Diamond Platnumz might have to get permission to do certain things like writing autographs, smiling to 'some fans' if Zari's latest post is anything to go by.
But with Platnumz increasing fame, Zari had better fasten her seat belt for this adventure.

Desire Luzinda of the Ekitone fame took to facebook this morning to share shots of her new hairstyle. She also added these words: "Happy Sunday lovely people! I know God will scatter and confuse the speech of my/your enemies."
While some welcomed the message, others were quick to bring in the past.
One Babbyson asked which talent she had other than showing off what her mama gave her, Steve shot back to Babbyson wondering if he had any talent before passing judgement. Using her verified account, Desire thanked Steve for a response she deemed appropriate.
Desire has been busy the whole of December. She literally performed at all events, moving around the city, you could not fail to see her name on the banners that were displayed.
Following her photo scandal, she has released two songs, Ekitone written by Moze Radio and Ebyama written by Pr. Wilson Bugembe. In the Ebyama video, a guy who in this case is her ex-lover, Franklin, is seen taking shots of her b()()ty but also quick to let him know that the shots he is taking are for his eyes only.

It's now official, Eddie Kenzo and Rema Namakula will be married pretty soon as the Sitya Loss singer has initiated plans for the nuptials.
Eddy Kenzo was in Equatorial Guinea for the new year's eve, and given the timing, it's been a busy time for him that he did not have enough time to spend with baby Aamal Musuuza, who was born on Boxing day.
For the last nine months, Kenzo has been tight lipped on the father issue leading to soem to suspect Kadonga Kamu star, Mathias Walukagga, but with the pre-introduction ceremony being strunk off their to-do-list, you can't afford to talk of Walukagga.
It's the third couple trying to work things out their style after Moze Radio and Lillian Mbabazi, and now, Fille Clear Muthoni and celebrated city MCKats who also part times as a musician.
Friday, 02 January 2015
Sheraton Hotel Kampala was the place to be on the new year's eve. Bebe Cool, Jose Chameleone, Sheebah, Pallaso, David Lutalo and Iryn Namubiru among others performed.
Bebe Cool was on his knees kissing his adoring wife and it was not long before his hand could drop all in the name of ushering in the news year. Bebe Cool will do anything to show love to his wife. In 2011 while in the UK, he was seen bitting at Zuena's behind.
Desire Luzinda as usual had two mean bouncers who ensured that the Ekitone singer was safe and sound.

On Dec 30, he was searching and within no time, loaded Katsha has found love in a one Kayihura Shakira. It's not clear what happened to her previous relationship, because, in 2013 at least from her post, she was extremely happy with money, love and respect flowing in her direction.
One year later, the story seems different. This was the very gal who was close to Davido on his recent visit to Kampala. And by the way, she values her life so much that in March 2014, she displayed her Negative results on her wall for everyone to see.
Yesterday was her birthday and to her, there was no better way of celebrating her day than hanging out at Katsha's rented Kololo apartment. The couple is deeply, madly in love and this is what the South African based Sangoma had to say;
"You know, it really doesn`t matter what (the media) write as long as you`ve got a young and beautiful piece of AZZ." Now this calling her names is what got many concerned. "Wow, the gal should be proud to be referred to as a piece of AZZ," One wrote
"Happy for you bro, they talk day time, they sleep at night," Socialite Zari who was happy for Katsha wrote.
"A man isn't complete without a woman. But where do you find a woman - a real woman - these days?" - were his words while searching, but now, he seems to be a settled man, and they are also fitting when it coms to height.
Friday, 02 January 2015
Zari has dated many ranging from basket ball star, LK4, muscle man Farouk Sempala and of course the father of her three children, Ivan Ssemwanga, but none of them has given her the life she has been yearning for. Ivan was close to getting her that life when she cruised the first Lamborghini in Kampala.
However, the Diamond Platnumz experience has been the epitome of Zari's relationships. She is now known in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and of course, she needs no introduction in Uganda.
On hooking up with the Bongo Flavour star, Zari told his followers to get ready for the "Uganda, Tanzania project" and so far, the project has been unveiled in bits and pieces..
The project kicked off with a music video that was recorded in Tanzania (we're still waiting for the video), then Zari was in South Africa with Platnumz for the Channel O Awards. One of Zari's ex-lovers tried to sabotage the relationship by leaking a s#x tape on the net, but this did not stop her.
Next, it was the All White Party which to the surprise of many was a sell out to the extent that the doors to Guvnor were closed to the public.
The couple was recently in Burundi with Zari right by Diamond's side at all times only to crown off their journey in Rwanda where they ushered in the new year with a performance at The Expo Ground on 31.Dec and another on 01.Jan at the Amahoro Grounds.
While in Rwanda, they visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial where they explained to them the history of Rwanda and the genocide of Tutsi's in 1994. Zari could not help crying after watching a short video of the Tutsi massacre.
This was Zari before Diamond Platnumz came into the picture.

It's been an amazing year for Rema and Eddy Kenzo.The Deep in love singer and her better half welcomed their first child, a daughter named Aamaal Musuuza on December 26, Kenzo announced on his facebook page.
Kenzo has been busy with several performances in the festive season and right now, he is in Equatorial Guinea, for a performance slated for tomorrow. The Be Happy singer has been in the Central African country since Dec 29, implying that, he has not spent enough time with his, now, second daughter.
In the Nice and Lovely song, Kenzo says that; "Olina Dimples Super" and it's on record, no one beats Rema when it comes to dimples, so that was a song he dedicated to her on conceiving...she did not disappoint, she retaliated with Muchuzi which you can as well relate to Musuuza, Kenzo's last name.
The Sitya Loss star had a message for the new year to his fans.
"On behalf of the entire Big Talent family, I wish you all a great prosperous new year. I thank the almighty lord for the new gift of a pretty baby Aamaal and my Sitya Loss song for making it to number 1 in the year 2014 and Number 3 in Africa by African Music Magazine, Happy New Year."
Meanwhile, yesterday as Bukedde TV was counting down the TOP 50 songs of the year 2014 voted by the viewers, Eddy Kenzo's Sitya Loss was number one followed by Bebe Cool's Love You Everyday.

Muscle man Farouk Sempala is certainly not happy with the way his ex-lover Zari is doing her thing. The mom of three is now rocking the entire East Africa. Before the successful White Party, she met Diamond Platnumz after a short holiday in Zimbabwe and off they went to Tanzania. She left a mark there.
Just yesterday, they were in Burundi and now, the two are in Rwanda. However, after failing to rekindle his romance with Zari, Farouk Sempala, seems to be getting to terms with the fact that she is gone and not about to be back in his life. For example, during the White Party, Farouk opted on doing charity, he visited children in Mulago Hospital.
His latest post just confirms that he is not happy with what is going on between Zari and Diamond Platnumz.
"It's just natural for every village to produce two of it's finest products that's a village drunkard & a village fool.....The laws of natural justice fail to apply, only when one is both (The village's foolish drunkard). And when this kind is exported to urban settlement.....aaaaaaah kiyitilira. Because this is when the village surely misses.... it's ediot."
In his words, he seems to suggest that Zari is missed in Jinja where she hails from as she is busy rocking East and South Africa.
On the other hand, Zari still maintains that; "This is the most Misunderstood project to go down in 2014." One fan, Trina Tina shot back saying that you stole Platnumz from Wema and you are seen kissing all the time and you say it's a misunderstood project?

Diamond was having performances in Burundi with Zari by his side to ensure all was well. On Dec 18, 2014, Diamond Platnumz was the headlining act at Zari's All White Party which was a sell out, since then, the two have not looked back.
Fans across East Africa are busy telling Diamond Platnumz to go back to his lover, Wema Sepetu, as opposed to dating Zari who is nine years older and a mom-of-three, but the Number One singer is terming that as nonsense !!!
Meanwhile, looking at Zari's past lovers, she has always been the one dumping and when the time for the Bongo flavour star is up, she will dump the young man. However, one thing is for sure, Diamond is enjoying the cougar from all corners and for now patiently waiting to usher in the new year Zari style.

Rema and Kenzo are the proud parents to baby Aamaal who was born on Boxing day. The Sitya Loss singer who has for long been tight lipped on the matter shared the good news on his wall.
"Mukama wamanyi boxing day YAZE ne musuuza omupya alihamidulirah maya afunye sister. Era kanebaze omulungi wange abadde very strong ebanga lyona. Ate wanjawulo according to her status ne myakaje abantu abamuvodde yandibade yabadamu nga ayomba naye yasirika. olugero lwa kasiru takusiruwaza alumanyi. bogedde ebisongovu bafune attention tezemu nomu Allah akuwe kyosinga okwagala mukwano. kale twanirize baby Aamaal munsi enungi Nga mukama yemukulembeze.

I'm proud of her given her age, a lot has been said but she did not say a word in retaliation. May Allah grant you whatever you wish for my dear. May we now welcome baby Aamaal in the world full of blessings from the lord, Amen."
This is Kenzo's second child and Rema's first. Kenzo has a daughter from his first relationship.

Bebe Cool has always had issues with Bobi Wine and Chameleone but the year 2014 has seen a few things change. During the KCCA Carnival, Bebe Cool performed a Bobi Wine song only to reveal in some interview that he was paid $10,000 just to do that.
On Boxing Day, it was the annual Bebe Cool's Tondeka Ekiwatule show which was well attended just like other shows in the season, but the highlight of the event was when Chameleone came on stage to perform some of his hit songs.
Moments later, the music was stopped as the two stars, Bebe and Chameleone hugged and cracked jokes leaving fans screaming wild. Bebe Cool hinted on a music battle with Jose Chameleone whom he says he helped to start up his music career but now boasts of being the number one in the country.
This is not surprising bearing in mind that last week, while appearing on a local TV station, Bebe Cool made it clear that this year has been very bad for Bobi Wine. "Chameleone has Wale Wale to compete with Love You Everyday but what hit song has Bobi Wine got this year?," Bebe asked.
In the same interview, Bebe Cool recalled of how he was thumped by Chameleone at Club Rouge a few years back.
Short of that, the show went on very well and was largely peaceful. Artistes like Maro, Hindu Asha, David Lutalo, Keko and Big Eye among others performed.

The maiden edition of All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) was held yesterday at Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island in Lagos Nigeria. It was hosted by 2Face Idibia and our very own Moze Radio and Weasel were among the winners taking home the award of Ragga/Reggae/Dancehall Music of the Year.
The Don't Cry singers who performed at the award event yesterday were quick to share the good news with their followers on social networks. Eddy Kenzo took off time from Rema who welcomed a baby girl last Friday to congratulate the dynamic duo on winning the award.
On Boxing Day, Moze Radio wrote that; "It;s been a great year, Thanks for being part of it." Great year indeed because, in spite of the problems they had with their previous manager, they have managed to do what they do best. Their very latest collabo Don't Cry Ft WizKid is doing well on channels across Africa.
On Jan 3, 2015 Moze Radio and Weasel will be performing live in London UK.

Christmas is a time for giving and receiving and that is exactly what ex-con Meddie Ssentongo did. On Wednesday, Bad Black who is still serving her sentence at Luzira prison was in court for the case in which Greenhalgh is trying to have Meddie's properties attached. The conviction for this case has now been set for April 2, 2014.
Shortly after court had adjourned, Meddie rushed to town and bought X-mas goodies for his former beau, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black who came dressed in black pants and a stripped top.
Bad Black could not hide her excitement on receiving the x-mas gifts and toiletries worth shs 2m/- For the record, Greenhalgh and Meddie were both Bad Black lovers but she was not in a dilemma like Cindy, she was able to handle both of them.
However, after embezzling his Shs 11B/- Greenhalgh was able to get them arrested. Meddie was sentenced to 18months and Bad Black 4 years.

It was full house at the Rich Gang party last night at Liquid Silk in Bugolobi. Just like Zari and Diamond, the Rich Gang (Ivan, his cousin, King Lawrence, Meddie and Cheune) were chauffeured to the venue in a limousine.
WBS and NTV were among the TV stations covering the party that saw the Rich Gang dish out money. As expected, many were trying to get close to the crew to have some of the pocket change. Highlights of the party can be watched on TV programs like NTV Login by Robin Kisti.
At around midnight, Ivan declared the bar open and all tribes of booze were flowing endlessly. The Ugandan boss lady, Zari was invited but she was a no show and so was the headlining guest, Huddah Monroe, she was no where to be seen.
Meddie Ssentongo was part of the Rich Gang crew after replacing Katsha who failed to measure up financially. Katsha was spotted at Club Amnesia hanging out with Bebe Cool.
The Ekitone singer, Desire Luzinda was one of the artistes who performed but with her, Ivan was forced to change the currency to dollars. Other notables at the party included; Ragga Dee, Moze Radio, Eddy Kenzo and Jose Chameleone among others.
"The party was most ___ up party, thing was too full, fights everywhere, like Kalerwe material, I expected some class or better still, they should have put a limit on the number of people because the turn up was high, to me, this was the worst party ever," one who attended the party wrote.

It's that time of the year when you expect drama, drama and more drama.
King Lawrence, Cheune and Ivan Semwanga are Ugandans based in South Africa though right now, they are in the country for the festive season.
This year, they are branding themselves as the Rich Gang and tonight, they will be holding their Made of Money, Rich Gang Spenders Party at Liquid Silk in Bugolobi. Entry fee is 35,000/- and they promise an open bar, though, those who attended their welcome party at Club Rouge waited in vain for the open bar to kick off. Desire Luzinda will be one of the entertainers.
Yesterday, the Rich Gang crew held a press conference to clear rumours that the party had been cancelled. However, Katsha was visibly missing and yet he has always been part of the earlier arrangements. "To be part of the gang, one must have shs1bn," Ivan Ssemwanga noted. "Katsha did not have the financial muscle to be part of the group," King Lawrence added.
Later in the day, the Rich Gang members were hosted live on NTV The Beat.
Some insider sources claim that Katsha was kicked out because he attended the now billed successful Zari White Party" which the other three boycotted, besides, they now want their Spenders Party to rival Zari's.
Trust Katsha, last year, he came up with the Sushi party and now he had teamed up with the boys for the Rich Gang party but on being fired, he has resorted to taking shots of himself with shoes that he says will be left behind at the end of the holiday.

"Merry Xmas, I wish u a happy New Year. Avoid drinking n driving, so we can all make it for 2015 and 4 that reason I will be releasing my video on the 1st of Jan for my second single "EVERYWHERE I GO", off the go Mama Album."
In the just released pics of the Everywhere I go video, Zuena is seen watching Bebe's lips in amusement as he kisses the Zulu vixen in the latest video. Bebe Cool and Zuena were bashed for going to that extent, but Zuena came out to say that she was okay with the whole arrangement. She also added that this was not the first time her hubby was kissing vixens.

The year 2014 is coming to the end and the battle for 2015 is already taking centre stage..Just the other day, Bebe Cool was in South Africa recording his 'Everywhere I go' song off his Go Mama 2015 Album and now, Juliana, seems to be all set for the new year.
"On Set earlier today (Dec 19). Video Shoot for my new single 'WOMAN'. Thank you God for giving me the strength to get back to what I love to do, Music. Look out for it, " Juliana noted on her wall.
The diva is aware that this year has been dominated by Fille, Irene Ntale and Sheebah Karungi when it comes to top female artistes, but like she has stated above; "Thank you God for giving me the strength to get back to what I love to do..."the coming year is proving to be even better with professionally done videos.
The Woman video by Juliana has background similar to that of Bebe Cool's Love You Everyday at least from the pics released.
In a related development, South African based businessman, King Lawrence (KL), is in town. Last year around this time, King and Juliana were inseparable but a few weeks back, KL was spotted down South with Kenyan socialite, Huddah Monroe. She will be in Kampala for the Rich Gang Party that takes place on Dec. 23, 2014 at Liquid Silk in Bugolobi.

First, it was a One-Million-Show and for those who tried to complain, he told them that he had plans for a shs1,000 show, but this particular one was for those who could afford.
As it turned out or as expected, not many of the 1M/- tickets were sold forcing him to introduce a new pricing package that saw the tickets drop to 500,000 and 200,000.
His reason for the price reduction was that he wanted many people to be part of the show.
Security was tight at the venue and this was expected anyway now that the First Lady was the Chief Guest. The show was dedicated to improving communities in Karamoja, in fact some elders from Karamoja attended dressed in their regalia. Chameleone was backed up by Papa Cidy.
Chameleone's show was a class apart compared to other shows that were held on the same day. By virtue of the chief guest and the price, numbers were directly or indirectly affected. It's not clear how much was contributed from the First Lady office but the show was successful in it's own way. It was in a class of it's own. It's the first time the First Lady is attending a secular event.
The lighting, sound and the stage were top notch courtesy of Silk Events. Chameleone was able to attend the other two main parties, (White Party and Arab Money) that were being held elsewhere on the same day.
Bobi Wine, Barbie and Price Wasajja were some of the guests that attended the One-Man-show.

Cindy was last night performing in Rwanda but the fans first thought they had been fleeced. The Selector singer turned up in a white weave similar to that of a granny. Our money, Our money, some were heard shouting but when she started her open and close and dance moves, that is when the shouting went down as the dance moves were taking the best of them.
For the last few days, Cindy has adopted this as her hair style but even after several reminders that she needs to change her style, she has gone on strike. This is happening after breaking up with her lover who she had just introduced to her parents a few months back.
Wardrobe malfunction, U look pathetic with that hair.. short hair is the best for you, fire your hair designer and so on were some of the comments on her wall.Cindy was able to reach out to those who were having problems with her hairstyle and this is what she had to say: "You guys will be fine even me I sometimes hate myself for being HOT so I don't blame you."

Singer Phina Mugerwa aka Masanyalaze has been in tears for a greater part of this year after Cindy 'stole' her man. The Ayokyayokya singer was quoted on several TV and radio stations saying that a man can never be stolen. Cindy added that she and Ken were old enough to make informed decisions and so far she was happy and enjoying every moment of it.
However, the tables have turned, Phina is now back with Ken after the Ayokyayokya singer dumped him. Efforts of opening up a bar for Cindy to save the relationship did not help.
"Better to be alone and be happy than be with someone and be unhappy, " is Cindy's latest post on the relationship that has since gone sour.
Earlier on she wrote; "Have u ever woken up one day and realised that EVERYTHING u thought u knew about someone so close to u is in fact a LIE? How do u move on from that? I'm in a dilemma to tell u the truth."
On discovering that Ken was broke, Cindy had to show him the exit. Phina who cannot hide her excitement captioned a pic of Ken and Sandton that relationships with a child involved are bound to succeed. It should be noted that Cindy and her ex, Mario Brunetti, have a child together but their relationship of ten years is no more.
Phina wrapped up her post by wishing her fans a merry x-mas and blessings too.

Part time singer and socialite, Zari Hassan, is all smiles after having a sold out White Party yesterday. At some point, the doors to the posh night spot, Guvnor, had to be closed as it was fully packed. It's the first white party that has had guests locked out due to a sell out.
The couple (D&Zee) arrived at the venue in a white limousine. Among the notables missing from the party this year was Ivan Semwanga, Zari's on and off hubby. It should be noted that he has always been sponsoring this event but this time around, it was Ciroc and Guvnor who were the main sponsors.
Ivan jetted into the country on Wednesday night but that evening, Zari and Platnumz were hosted on NTV The Beat where she apologized to the Nation for the leaked s3x tape. The show host, Douglas, went on to ask her about Ivan and this was her response; "I'm not sure if he was coming or not but at this time of the year, he is always in the country."
Meanwhile, before coming on air at the NTV studios, D&Zee went to the washrooms just to ensure they were all glammed up for the cameraz but instead, it was kisses-n-hugs and a bit of swahili lines of 'Iko vzuri' while there. Yesterday, as the two left their hotel room, they all looked worked up, but Platnumz was on duty and had to deliver, not forgetting, this was his first time to perform in Uganda.
Jose Chameleone was able to join them after performing at his One Million Show that was held at Serena Hotel, the First Lady was the chief guest.

Kalanda Shamim Tendo is Franklin Emoubor's new lover after falling out with the Ekitone singer, Desire Luzinda. However, the curvy singer says that Shamim is being used to wage revenge as she sums it up in a post that was deleted shortly after.
"When your once close friend dates your ex hoping to get a range rover. Actions very laughable but my dear Shamim Kalanda Kayongo stick to your marriage, Franklin is only using you for revenge," Desire wrapped up the post with a title of one of her songs dubbed #Tebakulimba, which means don't be deceived.
One wrote: "Desire we are so sick and tired of your drama, please stop. First you are kidnapped, then yo child's father saga, then you post your nud#s in a bikini, then oga leaks yo nudes, ate money lenders are after you, then you launch Ekitone, and now Shamim..OGA I beg."
Shamim has since deactivated her facebook account while Franklin says Desire is just stupid and jealous. "Could this mean that Desire still has feelings for Franklin even after what he did, why can't she move on with her Ekitone," another wrote.
Thursday, 18 December 2014
The venue for the video shoot has been kept a secret for crowd control purposes. ''Let's all learn to keep secrets, don't expose bedroom matters," she wrote on her wall.
In one of the shots, Desire is clad in a pair of African print shorts that show off her curves. Yesterday, Desire's ex lover, Franklin, showed off his new catch, Shamim Tendo who happens to have features similar to Desire, more of that here; Desire's Ex, Franklin, Hooks Another Babe
The main reason for Franklin leaking the pics was to destroy the Ekitone singer, but looks like the singer has instead become more famous.
Thursday, 18 December 2014
Desire's Oga, Emikeme Emuobor Baguma is smiling again after hooking up a bummy and curvy babe.
"Have more faith in yourself, you got something that other people don't. I have a true friend," Franklin noted on his wall as he shared a pic of his new catch, Shamim Tendo.
Franklin fell out with Desire Luzinda last month after leaking her pics on the internet and social networks, but as it turned out, Desire is getting more gigs from the leak. She has also released two songs, Ekitone written by Moze Radio and Ebyama by Pastor Bugembe, they are doing rounds on TV's and radio stations.
Desire's facebook profile was verified in the process, featured on BBC, and has since been performing on several shows that include; Zzina Beach Fest, Club Venom Anniversary party, Abryanz Awards, Davido's concert at Freedom city, Jinja street jam to mention but a few.
Most x-mas and boxing day functions have her listed as one of the performers. The Ekitone singer has since beefed up her security, she travels with three mean looking bouncers.
Back to Emikeme's new catch, she is equally curvy and endowed and with her, Franklin has no regrets in Desire being his ex, though some people insist, no one beats Desire.

Nasibu Abdul Juma aka Diamond Platnumz will be in the country this afternoon for his girl friend's show, The Zari All White Ciroc Party, that will be taking place at Guvnor tomorrow.
"Kampala, Uganda, your boy is on his way for the Zari All White Party, " He wrote on his instagram profile this morning.
Entry fee is 30k and all guests must be clad in white outfits. It's on this day that Chameleone's One Million Charity show will be held and also the Arab Money party....The belly dancer for the Arab party is also already in town.
Meanwhile, a few hours back, the Tanzanian Bongo flavour star was spotted heading to the airport for his flight to Kampala. Trust him, he always moves with his mom. During the Channel O Awards, he was in the company of his mom and of course his boo, Zari, who helped him carry around the three awards that he won.
Over the weekend, he was in Mombasa for the Jamhuri concert but the police lead car that cleared his way was so fast that at some point, it was a problem to other motorists.
Zari jetted into the country on Monday after failing to do so earlier, of course for obvious reasons, the tape. The mom of three has ensured that a proper security detail is in place for her slighlty younger 'good friend' who will be the headline artist at the Zari White Party.
Last minute shopping for white outfits, Garden City based Zari Jewels could be your solution.

On Saturday, Abba Marcus MAYANJA going by the stage name T-Rex held his first concert for the kids at Freedom City, it was massively attended.
He has always been backed up by his dad, but not this time as Chameleone was having performances in Dubai. However, Abba was not all by himself as his young brother, Alfa, was there to back him up.
Just like the saying goes, 'The Apple falls next to the tree'. I want to thank all fans and friends who turned up at Freedom City Kampala to support My Star, Abba Marcus aka T-REX. And you ABBA and ALFA for the greatness you showed. We as Leone Island Family are extremely proud of you. Never let anyone frown you whatsoever," Chameleone wrote.
He wrapped up his post with this tagline: "Only Losers Give Up."
In September, T-Rex launched his first single, Game Over, so if he can pull a crowd that big, the sky is the limit. Chameleone will also be filling up Victoria Hall at Serena in four days time after reducing the ticket fees to 200,000/-

Ex-Sanyu FM's radio host, Seanice Kacungira, yesterday (Dec 12) introduced her Nigerian lover, Fabian Lojede, to her parents home in Kololo. Fabian is a Nigerian born Pan Africanist, Producer, Actor, Director and Voice Over Artist. He is the guy who acts as Bola Aboyemi in the drama series 'Jacob's Cross'.
She is officially off the shelves...one of her close pals appealed to all those who had Christmas presents for the Blu Flamingo CEO not to change their minds but to go ahead and pass them on to her.
This will certainly not go down well with Fatboy who had once wanted to assume that role. However, close friends to Seanice have been quick to advice her not to try out the Desire Luzinda stunts which led to her Nigerian lover, Franklin Emoubor Emikeme alias Baguma to leak her pics.
Seanice was pretty excited, she spent Friday afternoon retweeting congratulatory messages. "Thank you all for the sweet and sincere good wishes on my marriage. I really appreciate it friends. Love back atcha, " she tweeted.

Chameleone has been FORCED to slash ticket prices to more than a half. As expected the price of 1M/- attracted low ticket sales and low demand leaving the Wale Wale singer with no choice but to introduce new pricing packages, just like a chameleon that is known for changing it's colours.
Chameleone has now come up with Platinum, Gold and Silver packages. You can still pay the 1M/- if you so wish or settle for the next lower pack which is 0.5M or better still, the general happiness which goes for shs 200,000/-
Chameleone will be performing all his hit songs right from the days of Mama Mia to Wale Wale cum Milliano on Dec 18 at Kampala Serena Hotel.
The first lady of the Respublic of Uganda, Mrs Janet Museveni will grace the concert and part of the proceeds will go to the Karamoja communities where he shot his Wale-Wale video.

Uganda's second representative in the Big Brother Hotshots, Stella Nantumbwe jetted into the country yesterday. Her 'boyfriend', Idris Sultan, the only East African who was among the finalists emerged the winner taking with him US$300,000.
Apart from Namibia, the rest of the country votes that made Idris trounce Tayo Faniran were from East Africa as the other West African countries had their own housemates to vote for leaving Tayo with only two country votes, Nigeria and Mozambique.
Among the notables who were at the airport to receive Ellah was Lawrence Okoronkwo who was initially believed to be Uganda's representative in season 9, but as it turned out, he was responsible for Ellah's fashion while in the house. Others included Anita Fabiola (#NTVBeMyDate Host) and Freelance Pageant Coach, Joram Muzira.
The 2013-2014 beauty queen spent the whole of today at different radio and TV stations. She was at Radio City, Wavah FM and WBS TV station among others.
Meanwhile, when she was evicted, IK asked her if they would still be together with her boyfriend back at home after millions of viewers saw her on telly sharing intimate moments with Idris, Ellah said NO!

The KY socialite was putting up at Michael Angelo Hotel Sandton where they took some photos together. "Had a good laugh with a new friend today...I have friends everywhere apart from home, " Huddah spoke of King Lawrence.
As expected, not so kind words followed but trust the Big Brother season 8 star, she shot back; Honestly, I don't understand why women have to be the ones hating all the damn time . If you think my Veg is giving me the life I live then why don't u use your veg too to get a life instead of hating.."
Huddah and Denzel were last year evicted just after spending a week in the house, she cried uncontrollably..
Meanwhile, Huddah will be here for the Made of Money - Rich Gang Spenders Party that will be held at Silk Liquid on Dec 23, 2014.

#BringBackOurMbs is one of the hashtags trending on social media right now. Initially, we thought they were complaining about the recent network problems with Mobile Telecommunication Network (MTN) that forced the telecom giant to refund millions of lost airtime. Over 700M was refunded.
Analysing the problem further, the #BBOM hashtag was about Zari's leaked tape which they claim was a waste of their MBs. One radio personality who watched the clip had this to say:
"Okay seen the video. It's Zari, alright. They appear to be having Skype s€x, and the dude was filming what was showing on the computer screen on his end. She was using a vibrator. Dude was probably je.r.king off (though of course we couldn't see but it sounded like he was). In short... pathetic video.#Bringbackour11mbs"
Zari has issued a statement well written by a lawyer, but it's amazing how in the statement she constantly reminds her fans, friends and followers of the forthcoming White Party. It's not clear why it had to get to this because, the main parties taking place on that day (Dec 18) are different and by virtue of the entry fees, they are bound to attract different aundiences.
Chameleone's show is 1M/-, Zari's is 30K, so both parties will have revellers by default. The Arab Party in Bukoto has also brought in a belly dancer with a sword, again this also attracts a totally different following from Zari's All White Party, so if this was a deliberate move, it has fallen short of it's intended objective.
Friday, 05 December 2014
Preparations for the Zari All White Party are in high gear and Zari's 'good friend', Diamond Platnumz, has also confirmed he will be in Kampala on December 18, 2014. He is the guest artist for the white party.
However, this morning, MTN aka Gonya Zirya Ki and other networks noticed some bit of traffic as one of Zari's yet-to-be identified ex-lover leaked her tape. The tape was doing rounds on social networks. It should be recalled that around this time last month, Desire's tape had been trending for a week..it took her two weeks to respond.
It has taken Zari just hours to respond and from her response, she is considering taking legal action against the perpetrators, detractors and publishers behind the tape.
"I would like to affirm that what goes on in my private life is absolutely my business that has no reason whatsoever to find it's way in the public realm. Privacy to/for/of a person is not a right granted by anyone, but it's inalienable..." Zari wrote on her wall.
Zari is now browsing her x-files to find out who this X could be.."I'm not bothered..life goes on. Exs gotta stay exs and stop doing things for revenge," Zari tweeted. Farouk, LK4 and Ivan Semwanga are some of Zari's lovers/ex-lovers and currentlly, she is close to Tanzania's Diamond Platnumz.
Friday, 05 December 2014
It's now less than two weeks to Chameleone's 'One Man, One Million One Show' which will see all the guests in attendance part with UGX 1,000,000/- just to see the music doctor perform all his hit songs in the last 14 years.
"With a Million shillings, we can change the lives of more than a Million people in need," Chameleone notes on his wall. Part of the proceeds from the show will go towards helping communities in Karamoja.
The First Lady and Minister for Karamoja Affairs, Mrs. Janet Museveni will grace the show. "I would also like to inform you that she has accepted to be present at the concert which is in part intended to raise support for the improvement of people's lives in Karamoja," Reads in part the letter accepting Chameleone's invitation.
Interestingly, more events will be taking place on that day. At the Imperial Royale Hotel, Fun Factory will be cracking ribs at 50k while Tanzania's Diamond Platnumz will be at Guvnor for the Zari Ciroc All White Party proving why he was a force to reckon at the recently concluded Channel O Music Video Awards.
Still on that day, The Arab Money party will be held at Cayenne Lounge in Bukoto. The organisers say it will be a lavish unforgettable night bringing it's unique blend of glamour, style and elegance to the city.

Juliana now joins the facebook blue badge brigade after her official account was verified yesterday.
"Finally!!! Our Official Juliana page has been verified. Now family, you know what to do. If you have been following those FAKE impersonators. Ya'll need to unfollow now and come home where you belong . Much Love. Blessings," Juliana wrote.
This is just days after Desire Luzinda's account was verified. Others whose accounts are verified include Flavia Tumusiime, Angela Katatumba, Mariam Ndagire, Anne Kansiime, Maurice Kirya and President Museveni.
Desire and Juliana's fans have suffered untold losses from fake accounts. When Desire's pics leaked, some fake accounts were extorting money from unsuspecting individuals in the guise of raising funds for a court battle. The same thing happened to Juliana when she lost her only son, Keron, fake accounts had a field day collecting condolence fees plus other related costs.
With more accounts being verified, this will mitigate against such losses.
NTV Be My Date is one account in dire need of verification. Anita Fabiola, the show host has made it a point that she talks about the difference between the real page and the fake page, but surprisingly, the fake page has its followers increasing by the day.
Juliana is now calling onto the lost souls to quickly rush home or they keep following the wrong accounts at their own peril. The big boys, Chameleone, Bebe Cool are yet to be verified...!
Thursday, 04 December 2014
As you may be aware, Bebe Cool has recorded his Everywhere I go video that will be released in 2015. Like it was the case for the Love You Everyday hit, this one too might premiere on foreign channels like MTV Base, Channel O and the likes before making it's way to Uganda.
There have been reactions on the ''may you kiss the bride" scene in the video that had Bebe Cool and a Zulu video vixen kiss, the same way newly weds would do it. How could Zuena stand that many seemed to say! The video concept is similar to that of Jaguar's One Centimetre.
"It's not the first time am watching him kiss a gal in a video shoot, it's called acting besides this is the life we chose to live. I wouldn't allow him to do so if I was uncomfortable with it. We are happy because it was a successful video shoot. Wait for it you'll see what am talking about. EVERY WHERE I GO."
Zuena has seen it all and she is yet to see more or worse off scenes because that is the life they live. For now, we will patiently wait for the video. In 2015, Bebe is tipped to do more everywhere I go, Love You Everyday type of songs as opposed to Kasepiki and Kus Kus songs.
Wednesday, 03 December 2014
Bebe Cool has been in South Africa since Friday. He went with his better half, Zuena Kirema Ssali and while there, he performed for the Ugandan community in Pretoria, kicked off the Big Brother live eviction show with his Love you Everyday song among others.
On the side of his visit, Bebe took off time to shoot a video for his latest 'Everywhere I go' song. The highlight of the video was when he married off a Zulu video vixen, intimately kissed and touched while his wife Zuena was recording the proceedings on her smart phone.
Later, the Zulu vixen and Zuena went through the shots that were taken but you could clearly see she was not very impressed with the whole idea. It's said that there was a scuffle in their hotel room, something they've both dismissed.
The idea of Zuena recording the wedding scene and yet she is still waiting for their fancy wedding that is now likely to take place in 2015 had people react differently, some were of the view that Zuena needs to stay home just like Barbie and Daniella to take care of the little ones other than engaging in 'funny' roles.
Trust Bebe, he shot back responding to one blogger who appeared to be most affected but also justifying that he is free to go with his wife everywhere he goes, which resonates with the song title.
"Never be that ------ to compare my wife to those two, I hear they stay home as their men go to work, don't u see that the more the two women stay home the more their hubbies have more children out of wedlock. You need to move with your wife EVERY WHERE U GO. My wife did not get married to my house or the kitchen but ME. I and my wife we r Ok with it..."
The video was written by Apass and produced by Nessim at Bad Productions, shot by Godfather Production. It's off Bebe Cool's 2015 album Go Mama!

Stella Nantumbwe aka Ellah has been a strong player in the Big Brother Hotshots that ends this coming Sunday. Ellah has been up for eviction six times, a record no other hotshot was able to beat. However, with a week to go, Africa decided that Ellah should pack her bags for Kampala.
"Uganda, Thank you, I Love you all. I'm back! We fought a great fight, I am humbled by all of your support God bless you all, Team Ellah."
One of her followers was quick to ask her to rally behind Idris all in the spirit of East Africa, but the beauty queen simply told him that; ''I'm team Butterphly hun..."
Butterphly is one of the 8 finalists in the run for the top prize, but it's strange that Ellah is opting for the Zimbabwean housemate as opposed to her neighbour and lover Idris...The pic above sums it all, Idris clearly told her, it cannot work out between us.
This is not shocking because from the moment Idris had it all, his feelings towards Ellah changed. Matters were even made worse after he (Idris) had a chat with his mom who told him to go slow with the affair and wait till after the show to see if the relationship was going to work.
"To my family and friends both old and new, I love you all so much, " Ellah concluded.

At this rate, singer Desire Luzinda is selling like a hot cake. This Saturday, she will be performing in Kampala and Jinja. Just last Sunday, she was performing for the very first time in two months at Victoria bar in Kireka. Desire had taken a break after her jilted lover, Franklin, leaked her nud# pics. Revellers were seen taking up front seats early enough just to get a clear view of the Ekitone singer.
She did most of her old songs but the crowd loved her latest Ekitone and Ebyama songs. This Saturday, Davido will be performing at Freedom City, the very place Chris Martins performed and the turn up was not that good.
As if that is not enough, even Davido was here last December and the turn up was equally not good, so this time around, teaming up with Desire Luzinda who has not only been the talk-of-the town but also featured on UK-based international service broadcaster, BBC, this show should not be anywhere close to flopping.
After curtain raising for Davido at Freedom City, the Ekitone singer will then proceed to Sombreros in Jinja (over 80kms away) for the UG Smart Street Jam where she will be having a headline slot. Pallaso, Maro, Madoxx and Cindy will also perform at the Jinja street Jam.

Responding to a post by Karim (Zari's young brother), who seems to be disturbed by his BIG sister dating someone as young as him.
In his post yesterday, Karim wrote: "You are ashaming us, how can you date a boy my age. You moved from one man to another in less than 3 days."
Zari was quick to respond though she maintained that it was not Karim behind that post. "Diamond is just a friend of mine. It's never been written that female and male can't be friends, it's just the backward people that use that kind of perspective to blow things out of proportion."
Wema Sepetu, Diamond Platnumz lover is equally not happy with the 'business' between Zari and her better half, the same way Karim has decided to shout it out.
Zari is nine years older than Diamond Platnumz but the two have been cozy lately, something many treat as unusual. Zari had reunited with Ivan after dumping Farouk, but like her brother puts it, ''from one man to another in 3 days'', she is now with Diamond Platnumz.
The Tanzanian Bongo Flavor star has already introduced Zari to his mom. Platnumz, his mom and Zari took photos at the awarding event in South Africa.The couple was last cited at the Channel O Music Video Awards where Platnumz made Tanzania proud by taking home three awards.
These are some of the responses from Zari's sister, Ashurah and King Lawrence who happens to be more than a brother to Zari's on and off hubby, Ivan ssemwanga.

Botswana's Sheilla and Trezagah from Mozambique were the first housemates to be evicted. Next up was rivals Goitse and our very own Ellah to leave the house
"Right now I just wanna punch Macky 2," Ellah said the moment she got to the live stage. "This is the best thing that has ever happened to me," she added. The show then crossed to highlights of her and Idris kissing plus other steamy moments.
IK asked who was wife number 1 and wife number 2 between Ellah and Goitse now that they were both having feelings for the Tanzanian lad. "He is nobody's man," Ellah shot back but when asked what she thought of Idris playing them, she said; "I don't mind because I genuinely came to love his heart."
"Thank you Africa for keeping us in the house for this long," Ellah said as she left the Big Brother live stage. Eight housemates have med it to the finals and one of them will be USD 300,000 richer.
The eight finalists in the run for the top prize are; Idris, Butterphly, Mam' Bea, Tayo, Sipe, JJ, Nhlanhla and Macky2.

Tanzania's Bongo flavour star, Diamond Platnumz, won big in last night's Channel O Music Video Awards (CHOMVA14). He took home three awards that include; Most Gifted New Comer for his 'Number One' song beating South Africa's Cassper Nyovest and others.
The Number One song again won him the award of 'Most Gifted Afro Pop' running over the likes of Davido, Mafikizolo, Flavour and Iyanya.
As if that was not enough, the Number One song, again won him yet another award 'Most Gifted East', a category which could have been taken by either Eddy Kenzo or Navio but we lost out. Eddy was riding on the Sitya Loss ticket while Navio was nominated for his No Holding Back song, but 'our in-law' was more than determined to take all the categories in which he was nominated.
Unfortunately for Platnumz , he lost the biggest award of the night to Cassper who beat eleven others that include; Davido, K.O, Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy among others.
Meanwhile, at the awarding event, Platnumz was in the company of his mom and his new found love, Zari baby who is by the way 9 years older, but she is 'hotter than them' just like her song when she tried singing. Hmmmn Zari says that they have a project coming up with Diamond Platnumz, but not even Wema Sepetu is buying that talk, she has now resorted to fighting the mom of three; Wema and Diamond Platnumz Clash Over Zari
After showing Diamond Platnumz so much love, he is now the headlined guest at the Zari All White Party that will be held on December 18, 2014. Initially, we were being told there will be a surprise guest, but now not a surprise guest anymore, but Tanzania's top artiste will be here in December.
In May this year, Platnumz set a record when he won 7 awards in the Tanzania Music Awards and in the just concluded Channel O Music Video Awards, it was only him and Cassper Nyovest who got three awards each.

Nightlife lovers living in areas around Bunga have a new bar and lounge opening officially in two weeks time. A few days back, it was reported that Cindy's Love Affair With Ken On The Rocks, but Ken as acted swiftly and prevented the plane from crashing.
Cindy and Ken Muyiisa are now the proud owners of Da Boss bar which was originally Fire Bolt. The Muyiisa's are inviting friends and fans to be there on December 13, 2014 as the bar opens it's doors to the public. It's located right opposite Maybach Motors and Ken says, it's the 'Best After Work' bar.
It should be recalled at this point that Cindy's ex, Mario Brunetti has shares in the Bukoto based bar, Cayenne Lounge, so Ken feels this is the best way to appease Cindy who is two months pregnant for him.
In September, Ken visited Cindy's parents just after dating the Sample Dat singer for a short while something that had failed Mario to do after 10 years. Cindy and Mario have one child while Ken and his ex, Phina Masanyalaze also have a child together.
Some folks were following up with Phina to find out what she had to say on the current developments, but the Byansi singer simply said that Ken is not a responsible man. How can he set up a bar for Cindy worth shs 100M but can't provide basics to his own son?
"Regarding her pregnancy, they are free to have as many babies as they wish, but she should know that Ken is not a responsible man," Phina concluded.

Arnella Kamanzi, the 18-month-old baby who was tortured by a maid early this month was yesterday admitted at the pediatric section in Mulago Hospital for further medical examinations. "The baby was brought here for examinations and a number of tests will be done to establish whether she is in good health," confirmed a source at the national referral hospital.
Jolly Tumuhiirwe, the maid who is the main actress in the 'horror movie' has been charged with attempted murder and she is due to appear in court on Dec. 08, 2014. Experts are also looking at the video to be sure it was not doctored.
Meanwhile, speaking from Luzira prison, Jolly Tumuhiirwe has asked the 'world' to forgive her for what she did...."My dad in Kabale was very sick and yet my mom did not have any money. I asked my bosses for some money to send to my dad but they told me that I hadn't made a month yet and my father was dying, so it kept on haunting me."
"That is the more reason I referred the anger to the baby but I'm sorry. But that madam (Arnella's mom) is not easy. She used to say that I steal money from the clothes and Eric's wallet, I eat the babies food...and yet I can't eat the food, I'm not a baby, those were all lies, so, I was also not happy from my heart."
"I feel guilty..ok when I was doing it I thought I was disciplining the baby because also the mother sometimes slaps her, I also saw from the mom. The torch I used was small and it's not hard. I think, I will never do it again"
Jolly's experience of Prison
"It's not good at all even my fellow prisoners don't want to associate with me, they want to beat me up. In fact they were saying that I should join them in their rooms, nobody likes me and I'm feeling bad I will never do it again, I ask the world to forgive me and also tell the bosses who have maids to treat them well."

The maid who tortured Arnella could have gotten a worse off beating and we could be reporting something different here had Eric watched the bit when the maid was doing cruel things to Arnella.
It's a long video and actually the parents had not watched it in it's entirety. All Eric saw was that part when the maid was slapping Arnella for not eating.
It was then that Eric Kamanzi came home and beat up the maid for having slapped his daughter. Of course, the nanny was not aware she was being recorded, so she wondered why Eric was acting that way. This forced Jolly who had only worked for 26 days in that home to seek help from authorities.
Eric was later arrested and ordered to pay Jolly her monthly salary of 60,000/- and get rid of her. However, Eric and Angella Mbabazi got to watch the full recording of about 10 hours, they were shocked with what they discovered. In some scenes, the maid could be seen lifting Arnella by the hair, stomping on the back and kicking her in the process.
Eric showed them the clip, they were equally shocked leading to his release and the subsquent arrest of Jolly. On being arrested, Jolly said that she had also been beaten but was quick to add that Arnella was lucky, she did not bleed, but I bled. Jolly was even showing off a blood soaked T-shirt she was wearing at the time of the beating, she even showed off marks sustained from the caning on her back.
The police boss, Gen. Kale Kayihura has now ordered that an additional statement be got from Jolly Tumuhiirwe on the events leading up to the time of the video footage.

Lovers, Wema Sepetu and Diamond Platnumz, are in a fight of sorts following the latter's closeness to South Africa based Ugandan socialite, Zari Hassan Tlale.
On December 18, 2014, Kampala revellers will have three parties to attend, but one of them costs an arm and a leg. To attend Chameleone's 'One Million Show', you will have to part with 1M/- UGX and the other two parties (Arab Money + Zari All White Party) are pretty much affordable.
It should be recalled that a few weeks back, as Zari was making her way to TZ, she met Diamond Platnumz on board and one thing led to the other...soon the two were all over each other and even when they got to TZ, it became worse. More of that here; Zari and Diamond Platnumz An Item
Wema Sepetu has now put her weight behind Jose Chameleone following the steamy kisses Zari had with Wema's lover, Diamond Platnumz in TZ a few weeks back. In her post on Instagram, Wema says she has never been to Kampala, but she will come just to grace Chameleone's show.
On the other hand, Diamond Platnumz has continued promoting Zari's All White party on his profiles. Negotiations are still on for the Tanzanian singer to be the surprise guest artist at the White Party, we hope another war won't break out.

It's one thing to have a facebook profile and another to have it verified.
The list of verified facebook accounts in Uganda is increasing by the day with the very latest being Desire Luzinda. President Museveni, Capital FM's Flavia Tumusiime, artiste Angella Katatumba and actress Mariam Ndagire are the others whose accounts are verified. Maurice Kirya prominently features on the verified list as the only male artist.
Any dealings with a verified account means that you are dealing directly with that person or someone authorized to operate that account. Comedienne Anne Kansiime is a 'Ninja' just like her tag line. She is Uganda's most liked person on Facbook with over 500,000 followers/likes.
Angella Katatumba closely follows with about 350k followers. We also have facebook profiles that are yet to be verified and these include; Bebe Cool (278, 765 likes), Chameleone (192,071likes), Juliana (209,174 likes) and Bobi Wine with 73,552 likes.
A verified account will save your fans from being fleeced. Days before Desire Luzinda's account was verified, her fans lost money after responding to calls from fake ''Desire Luzinda'' accounts that the singer was soliciting for money she will use for the photo scandal court case. She was forced to report the matter to police.

Talking to Desire Luzinda this morning, NTV's Faridah Nakazibwe tasked her to throw some light on a few pertinent issues.
I'm not Dating Seya - Franklin's intention was to put me down and you can't blame people for believing all that he said, because, I was dating him and whatever he did was out of anger. The long list of lovers he put out there is fake. A person like Seya, is a friend and a darling, I've never seen him without a shirt and so many others, but for Ben Misaga, I don't wanna talk about that.
Why are You Not MARRIED
You are a very talented and beautiful woman, why don't we see you settled down and married some day, Faridah asked! "When you are in the limelight, you meet the wrong people sometimes because the genuine one's fear approaching you. Those that have the guts to approach you have different motives and yet you are trying very much to settle but you keep on getting disappointed.
"I believe I will settle some day...and everything happens for a reason," Desire concluded.
So folks out there, Desire is back on the single's shelf and ready to mingle!!!!

'Revenge porn victim', Desire Luzinda, was this morning on NTV talking about her ordeal. For the last three weeks, Uganda has been trending globally courtesy of Desire's leaked pics and now the nanny who tortured an 18-month-old baby.
Talking to NTV's Faridah Nakazibwe, Desire said that she was getting over the issue. More of it here; Desire Luzinda's Oga Leaks Her Nud8 Pic
"I was forced to switch off my phone as Franklin continued threatening me. In the first days, people were judging me saying that look at this monster, how could you do such a thing, but with time, they noticed that I did not take those pics for public consumption. The first days were really tough times."
"Franklin actually called me a week before saying that his friends were asking him for the nud# pics, but I did not take it serious because I knew there were no pics of me out there, but when I saw them, I was shocked."
"Some of the pics I was not aware but others, oh yes, we were playing about in the living room which is normal. They were taken last year and I did not think he had them till now. If anything, I also have his pictures and if I wanted, I would have leaked them as well, but it's not my intention, and besides, I delete."
"Trust you me, most people take these pictures but when mine leaked, I stopped thinking. At the time, I was at my mothers house (she's given tissue)....!"
What Next - Desire now plans to do so many things like advocating for women who have been in similar situations, and, she is still doing music. Desire also tells the young women not to take pics because they could be used against them.
I'm a Hero and role Model - Surprisingly, I've gotten messages in my inbox of people telling me that you are my hero, you are my role model just because of the way I handled this whole thing. This gives me a pat on the back because not every one is hating on me (laughs). I'm a just a victim and I believe, time will tell if I released them intentionally or someone did this to bring me down.
Desire Grateful - I would like to thank Halima Namakula, Annette Nandujja and Sarah Zawedde, they have been extremely supportive. They could come to my home even at awkward hours just to check on me. I was crying and not eating in the first week, but I can't thank those ladies enough.
Radio and Weasel, Mariam Ndagire, Angela Kalule, my managers and so many others have been so supportive during this time and I would like to thank all of them.
Seeks Justice - I'm not into revenge and that is my nature, but if I keep quiet after what happened to me, It's like I'm not fighting for the rights of women out there. First of all, if there were strict laws, Franklin would not have released those pics. So I want this to be a learning lesson to all those who think they will do anything to a woman and walk away scot free. Women are hurt most compared to men when it comes to leaked photos. So I can't sit back, I need justice, not revenge but justice.

It all started when Farouk traveled a few days back to a place he did not disclose...though, some sources indicate that he had gone to South Africa to try and work things out with Zari.
Looks like things did not work out as planned, but trust him, he never runs out of options, he has now switched to the US where a one Julia Kawalya (31) is very quickly being added onto his list at least as revealed from a leaked phone call.
In the phone conversation which is suspected to be leaked by either of them, Farouk is planning on relocating to the US. It starts with Julia and Farouk talking about what Zari lost by falling out with the muscle man.
Farouk is heard requesting for Julia's pic similar to that of Desire Luzinda..but Julia is reluctant and adds that she is a Muganda woman who was taught to guard her stuff and not just expose it fwaaaa!!
"By the way, let me ask you something..why do guys equate making love to falling in love? Women are the reverse, they want to hear and then the physical comes later, "Julia asked. Farouk's response was not clear as he had now lowered the pitch of his voice to a husky one.
In the 15 min conversation, the two kept on complimenting each other and Julia telling him of how she will be very happy when he eventually joins her in the US.
"By the way Farouk, It's so cold this side..it's going to be a bad winter, I think I'm freezing," Julia said. "The better, I will come and warm you and also cover you up," Farouk responded.
But before going off the line, Julia demanded that Farouk forwards the first copy of his passport to her official fax line so that she starts on the visa process which is rather lengthy. You needed to hear the accent Farouk used as he was trying to save the fax details, it was as though he was already in Uncle Sam's land.

Akay has switched to playing doubles. Chameleone's young brother and his better half welcomed twins on Friday.
"Life is two-riffic with twins!! Canaan Ace n Connie Allard welcome to my world. God touched our hearts so deep inside, our special blessings multiplied," Akay tweeted.
"Congs my brother Salongo, " Weasel wrote. Meanwhile, his ex, who happens to be Weasel's current girlfriend is about to give birth.
"Hats off for my brother Kagawandagazza Akay !! Ladies & gentle men the first Twins in the Mayanja family are here !! Congratulations I cant wait to meet them already, " Pallaso wrote.
In a related development, Pallaso's wife and child went back to the US yesterday after getting a feel of UG.

Before proceeding on leave, the Urban TV gossip queen, Mary Luswata, was conducting auditions for one fan who will step in for her for the two weeks she will be away. "Don't be shy, this could be the first step to hosting your own TV show. Come over to Urban for a screen test. Waiting to meet you," Mary wrote.
Oh yes, some daring folks cum ardent fans were able to respond to that call, but from the comments, it's evident they are failing to do it the 'Luswata Way'.
A few days to starting her leave, some viewers were pleading with her not to go, and now, it's not yet a week from the time she left, but her diaspora fans are already complaining about the YouTube page which has not been updated since then.
However, even those who are standing in for her duiring this time are failing to measure up to her level and way of doing things prompting comments like, "During this time when you are away, can the previous episodes be run as we wait for you to be back.."
"Next time when you leave the show, go along with your show than leaving cartoons on the show."

Road Block studio boss, Peter Miles, is in love and this time, there is no looking back. The Frontline singer seems to have made up his mind on Sharie. Miles shared shots of his better half captioned with these sweet words; "Glad to have you in my life...nuff luv.."
Friends and fans are happy for him and among them is Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema. Some fans want him to get back with his ex, Cleopatra, but this seems highly unlikely as Cleo has since moved on (Cleopatra Shows Off Growing Bump and Lover) while others are willing to send their contribution money for the wedding if he can make up his mind on this one.

"I came willingly to the police head quarters to make a statement regarding the leakage of my nud# pictures and I apologized to the public because I know that there are so many people that were affected. I wish to seek protection as far as justice...because it was not in any way my intention nor for public consumption."
"I have recorded a statement and I'm willing to work hand in hand with the police to fight for my justice. I just want to thank those that have understood the situation in which I am, and I thank the police, they've done so much and they are very understanding.."
Desire was a tourist attraction as she walked around the corridors of the police headquarters in Naguru on Wednesday.
Seeks Police Protection
"Desire sought to have protection from the police because there were people who were misusing and abusing the photos and also trailing her, so she felt that her life was in danger," The police spokesperson, Polly Namaye said.
Her Lawyer Appeals for Calm
"The community should side with her and support her, government and the other authorities should all come together to support her because she is a victim and then we should help the authorities to get the perpetrators," said Sheila Namahe, Desire Luzinda's lawyer.
Seya Speaks Out - It's unfortunate this happened and she cannot reverse it, but Ugandans should forgive her. It's important that our daughters start behaving well and go back to the aunties (Ssenga's) because for us when we used to do such things, we could switch off all the lights, but these days, you people have your own conceptions. This will be a learning lesson to other girls, " the former Kampala Mayor, Hajj Nasser Ntege Ssebagala aka Seya said.
He was asked if he has any relationship with Desire and this is what he had to say; "I don't have any relationship with her, but we are friends."

Our ''in-law'', widely referred to as Emuyoba by team #AgataliikoNfuufu is celebrating his birthday today, he turns 37, at least going by his Ugandan Baguma passport. HBD!
However, his comment on Uganda's AFCON loss yesterday, leaves a lot to be DESIRED. The moment the final whistle was blown shortly after Andy Mwesigwa's red card and a penalty that led to the second goal, it was clear that Uganda's hopes of playing in the 2015 AFCON games had been dashed, and now, looking at 2017.
BUT, Desire Luzinda's jilted lover, Franklin Emuobor Emikeme seems to be happy with that and was celebrating on the eve of his birthday. Uganda Oyee!!!!, Franklin wrote on his wall.
Oyee!!! whatever it is could suffice if Uganda had won, but using it after yesterday's game was tantamount to a mockery. All that was required yesterday was a draw, but we ended up losing by 2 goals. Uganda last participated in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in 1978.
On one hand, you can't blame him, he is not Ugandan, but the Baguma in him and the four years he spent with our very own curvy and 'Ekitoneted' Desire, not forgetting the Equation song she sang for him while he shot those pics, you would expect him to have a little ingredient of the Cranes Namutima spirit, but the broda is no joke ohhh..!
Meanwhile, that was Desire Luzinda at the police headquarters in Naguru yesterday where she had gone to make a statement on the nud# pictures that Franklin leaked on the internet and other social media platforms. Was Franklin celebrating now that Uganda Police is looking for him to show cause why he had to make Luzinda's privates public? May be YES.

Shortly after being crowned the Kyabazinga of Busoga, Prince William Khadhumbula Gabula IV went to Coventry University in the UK. However, as he is furthering his studies, all does not seem well for his better half, Hilda Natwijuka Sheba Zaribwenda.
The clan elders want the Busoga King to have a princess from the region and Sheba seems to be okay with it though, she adds that she fell in love with a person and not a king.
"I was there when you needed a shoulder to lean on and never fell in love with a king but a person. I am not a Musoga and will never be. I will now let you be and pray that you get what you deserve. We meet in the next life Nadiope William Khadhumbula Gabula IV."
Hilda and William have been together for the last eight years. During the time when it was not clear who the Busoga King was, Hilda kept on supporting William and constantly reminding him that he was the winner.
'Kings are born, Princess are made, Only God gives the crown,' was Hilda's post after Gabula's election and on the coronation day, she wrote: "Kyabazinga Coronation, I know where I'm going, no retreat no surrender."
But from her tweet yesterday, the situation is: "No more you and I His Majesty Nadiope William Khadhumbula Gabula IV.

Other songs by Irene Ntale include Onomwana, Olindaba, Smile Uganda among others.
The issue of doing a collobaration song with Jose Chameleone has been a tricky one. Melody, Iryn Namubiru, Leila Kayondo are some of the few artistes that have had that chance, and now Irene Ntale joins that line up.
Last week, they were in Kawempe recording the video for the Easy song.

Scroll down for the Ekitone Video
The police might be looking for Desire Luzinda following her leaked pics, but this has not stopped her from hitting studio and doing what she does best.
Just four days back, the Tebakulimba singer released her latest single, Ekitone, and now the video is out. In the video, Desire who is dressed in a white shirt, red tie and a tight red short in black net leggings revealing the curves...
"Nze Ndiina ekitone kitone sikulimba, Nze ndimu ebirabo birabo ooohhh, Nze ndina zaabu munda...." literally translated as; "I'm talented and i'm not lying, I'm gifted, and I've got gold underneath the ground.."
"The Ekitone video is finally out. Hope it's gonna make you scream," Desire wrote on her wall shortly after releasing the video.
From the time of the photo scandal, many fake 'Desire Luzinda' accounts have ben opened up and those behind the accounts are extorting money from unsuspecting victims. The money is being sent on Mobile money registered lines under the name of Desire Luzinda with claims that she is in need of financial help to sort out legal fees. One lost over 500,000/- and the other 217,000/-
The Ndina Omwami singer was forced to issue a disclaimer.
"Being a victim of fraud, I am saddened to learn about fake accounts that have been opened in my name. The very accounts are being used to ask people for money. I have 2 accounts; the official Luzinda Desire page and this very fan page. My team and I have managed the situation and are not in any way asking anyone for money so please be vigilant and don't fall victim.Thank you"

Cindy is once again in a dilemma just like her song sums it up. Back then, she was stuck between Mario and Ken Muyiisa, but very quickly solved it by dumping Mario, the father of her daughter, who had feasted on the singer's goodiez for over ten years minus putting a ring on it.
The Sample Dat singer opted for South African based businessman, Ken Muyiisa, who was quick to take things to the formal lane by visiting Cindy's parents..More of that here; Ken Muyiisa Visits Cindy's Parents
The latest info from Cindy seems to suggest that she is in a dilemma once again.
"Have u ever woken up one day and realised that EVERYTHING u thought u knew about someone so close to u is in fact a LIE? How do u move on from that? I'm in a dilemma to tell u the truth,"
Cindy thought she knew Ken so well but it looks like it's not the case, and, she is now asking, how does she move on from that!
Looks like Phina Masanyalaze is having the last laugh now!

Desire Luzinda loves soccer and has always supported the Uganda Cranes but this time around, the Ekitone singer was unable to attend for obvious reasons, so opted to watch the game from the confines of her 'hideout'. However, her die-hard fans were there clad in t-shirts with 'We will always be there 4 you' inscriptions.
Last month, Desire in (pic) was able to watch the Uganda Vs Togo game which we lost by one goal, also, the first game for the national team to lose at Namboole in the last ten years.
Yesterday, Uganda Cranes were able to beat Ghana by one goal in the early minutes of the game. The Ghana team has almost all it's players playing English teams like Everton, Milan and the likes but that was not enough to save them from the loss.
Uganda now has 7 points.

Leila Kayondo has some concerns as revealed in her latest post. The Kuzina Nawe singer notes that some of her friends and fans are demanding to know things in her life which makes her doubt if they are really friends.
Her biggest worry right now are the fans who say that she is not as happy as she claims. The ex-Dream Galz member wonders who determines one's happiness and she is forced to ask, Are you God or you are mad?
"Fake friends, don't think you will win my trust by telling me what my haters say or think about me.Yes am talked about by most," she added.
Leila Kayondo is dating a South African based Ugandan businessman, SK Mbuga, who has done quite a lot in elevating her music career to the next level. Leila has two collaboration songs with Chameleone, Relaxing and Hooray, and as you may be aware, this does not come easy especially when it's the music doctor.
She cruises a BMW convertible, has L-Kay Collections, a fashion house in Kansanga all courtesy of her lover man S.K. Mbuga and now wonders why some people would even think of her not being happy!!!
SK is or was dating Leila's elder sister, Fatumah, and they have kids together.

'Revenge porn' victim, Desire Luzinda, has shared her latest shots captioned; "I'm not hiding, am simply enjoying special moments with family and taking one day at a time. Love you dolls."
It was believed that the Ekitone singer was hiding in areas around Mbarara to try and take the pressure off herself. It was also said that she was trying to relocate to Rwanda but the curvy singer has cleared that bit with smiley pics.
She recently told the BBC that she was still living in fear after her Nigerian lover leaked her pics on the internet and other social media platforms.
The Minister for Ethics and Integrity also ordered for investigations into her case. Police says, she has up to three months to go and give her side of the story. They need to know if her nud# photos were taken with her consent as the hunt for her Nigerian lover progresses.
These are the first pics of Desire Luzinda since her photo scandal two weeks back. In the photos, she actually looks happy though still with family, she is yet to come out and interact with fans.

"I would rather remain single than have a beautiful wife that does not respect herself and turns out to justify her wrongs as rights, it's just a waste of time and calories." The post was followed by five other points and one of them was tagged to Zari and Diamond Platnumz - You bump into a singer on a plane and you call that a project!
The above post was edited three times as he tried to put his point through before eventually pulling it down. Zari's other ex-lover, LK4 was forced to respond to Farouk's concerns with the 'Are you mad?' pic..
"I just don't understand why women are being more like men and men being more like women! It's crazy. But anyways, hope he is ok, regardless of what. Private life is better life," LK4 concluded.
Zari dumped Farouk (Zari and Farouk No More) before going back to her hubby, but just recently, the mom of three was all over Tanzania's Bongo flavour star, Diamond Platnumz. They claim to be doing a music project, but given her way of doing things many doubt Farouk inclusive.

Dr. Jose Chameleone's wife, Daniella Atim Mayanja, has turned 29 today!
"You bring joy to my life,You are my Best friend my life and Joy. Together With Abba,Alfa,Alba,Amma and the Leone Island Family we wish you a Happy Birthday Mrs. Mayanja Atim Daniella, You are the love of my life," Chameleone wrote on his wall.
Last year, Chameleone's present for Daniella on her birthday was an airticket to Bahamas, more of it here; (Travel to Bahamas as Birthday Present for Daniella).
The mom of four was last spotted on Friday at the Kampala Serena Hotel during the premiere of LUZIRA - Escape from Uganda where Chameleone acts as Don Dada.
The Wale Wale singer is equally busy with rehearsals for the One Million Show that will be taking place on December 18. Fans who are up for the show have continued putting money aside. One of them has at least raised shs0.8m and was hoping that if the figure is lowered slightly, he could access the venue, but while appearing on one of the local TV's, Chameleone was clear, if you don't have 1m/- please don't come.
Given that price, Chameleone is certainly going to perform all his hits in the last 14 years ranging from the days of Mama Mia, Bei Kali through to Technology, Bayuda, Vumilia to now Wale Wale.

Revenge po#n victim, Desire Luzinda, has been trending for two weeks now. BBC, Metro and Independent UK are the latest foreign news services to feature her nud# photo scandal. BBC interviewed Desire and Cindy who have both suffered a similar fate of their natural suit pics leaking to the public.
Cindy said that she had to use that moment to release a song so that she is not looked at as a nud# star, but someone who can also sing. Cindy released Mbikooye which was a hit back then.
Desire seems to have heeded the call and as she says; Fighters Never Quit - Desire Luzinda.
Yesterday, using her facebook profile, she released the Ekitone song and Franklin, the jilted lover who leaked her pics was among the very first one's to like the post.
Most of Desire's fans were now asking her to think of a concert before the year-end. In June this year, Desire held her Black and White Affair concert, (Desire Luzinda-Black and White Affair), the first after six years. Franklin says he sponsored it but they failed to realise much from the tickets which were either given out freely or he just did not see the money.
Since then, the two were having issues that led to her arrest (Desire Luzinda Arrested Over Shs 16m Debt) and eventually photos leaking when she referred to Franklin as a conman. More on what led the photos to leak here: Desire Luzinda Was Conned by Nigerian Oga.

Desire at her performance in South Africa last year, the guy in a striped T-shirt had his dream come true a few weeks back.
"Since my brutal attack, I have since survived and comforted by over whelming support and messages in my in box. Just to let you know that I may not reply to all but I read and treasure all the kind words. God bless you."
That was Desire's next post following her apology. Yesterday, she was interviewed by BBC from her hideout. "Basing on the words, the posts online and what I've been hearing from media houses, I'm scared...but I'm hoping I can face it.". See More Desire, Cindy Speak to BBC Over Nud3 Pics
Bebe Cool, Irene Ntale and Eddie Kenzo among others have appeared on BBC and just yesterday, Desire Luzinda was featured under this tagline; 'Ugandan revenge po#n victim'.
Messages in her inbox are way too many that she can't reply each and everyone of them. Her facebook likes have continued to increase after what she is terming as a brutal attack of her Nigerian Oga making her privates public.
Her facebook likes now stand at 80,000 plus from 70,000 over the weekend.

Desire and Cindy have one or two things in common, they are Ugandan female artistes and also their nud# pics have leaked. First, it was Cindy in 2008 and six years later, Desire has suffered a similar fate or even worse because this happened at the time when social media was the in-thing. Whatsapp, facebook and other social networks did not make it any easier for Desire, no wonder she is into hiding as she told BBC's Catherine Byaruhanga.
"Basing on the words, the posts online and what I've been hearing from media houses, I'm scared...but I'm hoping I can face it."
"When my mother called me she was like honestly were you drunk, were you drugged, this is not you, I didn't even have an answer, I felt her pain, I cried when she was talking to me," Desire said.
The Ayokyayokya singer, Cindy Sanyu was also interviewed. "If the pictures come out, people will know, and every office you go to, they will be able to recognise you. When my pictures came out, I released a song (Mbikooye) because I didn't want people to just think of the pictures, I wanted them to know that I could also sing, I could perform."
Desire is not the first one and also has people like Cindy around her for advise, after all. Before Desire issued her apology, she was trying to promote one of her songs, 'Ekitoone', could this be similar to what Cindy was talking of in her interview with the BBC?

The Butterfly singer came out to clear the space using his facebook profile.
"I normally don’t respond to cheap/ false gossip about me or my wife. In our business you have to be ready for it. However I will make an exception this time for two main reasons. One is because of the genuinely concerned people who want to know the truth and secondly because I think the blogger who came up with this false story about my little child and a paternity test went too far."
"So just to be clear, this whole story about us getting a divorce making rounds on social media is just a made up story by some blogger who wanted to trend."
Behind every successful man, there is a woman, so Wahu rallied behind Nameless saying;
"Even with all the false stories that people create about my husband and I, we are still strong."

Yesterday was Rema's baby shower that was held at Fang Fang Chinese Restaurant. The Deep in Love singer was showered with presents for the yet to be born baby.
Bobi Wine's wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi was among those that attended the baby shower and had this to say: "She's glowing, baby shower happening now, I know she will make a perfect mama. Congratulations Rema."
Rema (23) is expecting her first child with the Sitya Loss singer, Eddy Kenzo. This will be his second child.
Earlier reports had indicated that she had given birth to a baby girl, but that was false.

Ex NTV Life Stories host who also quit the Mini-Buzz Bukedde show on October 30 to concentrate on her studies has denied allegations that she was arrested. She says that's nonsense that should be treated as such;
"There's nonsense that you MUST treat as nonsense especially if it's so false, so made up and so uncoordinated i.e ignore! People who spread falsehoods about others in the name of making money or news or whatever it is, God have mercy on you if He wants. Everyone's future and blessing is in God's hands, there's got to be more than lies to change that! Otherwise have a beautiful week ladies and gentlemen."
It was reported that Justine was arrested on Friday for having issued cheques to the tune of 2.5M that later bounced. The money lenders grabbed her the same way Panadol Wabasajja was grabbed. They told her that there is a recording deal in the offing, she came rushing.
She was taken on but later granted bail. The matter is filed under SD-32/01/00/2014. This was shocking bearing that just a few days back, Desire Luzinda was arrested and Nameere was one of those advising fellow women on what they should do to avoid scenarios like those of Luzinda.
In her positive message, she encouraged ladies to love Ugandan men as opposed to foreigners as she explains below:
"Ladies before you opt for foreigners remember that in most countries, morals are dead! Ugandan men are annoying but have some morals; there are things they just can't do to a lover or ex! Some man came here, married a Princess after a few disagreements, he saw it fit to disrespect his in laws in public including a King."
"Now this lunatic decides to destroy Desire and her child because to him after 4 years that was the best way to handle grievances in his relationship; he even had the nerve to brag about it and even promise to release more! Mbu he gave her a concert, did he compose or sing her songs?! Ladies take care, Desire take heart.."

Zari spent last weekend in Harare and this one was spent in Tanzania. While making her way to Tanzania, she met Bongo flavour star Diamond Platnumz on board and very quickly the two swapped seats with other passengers to enjoy each other's company. Champagne got the best of them to the point of taking pics with their tongues out.
While on board, a number of issues were discussed including her All White Party...It was not long when she realised that oh yes she can sing or has sang before..this is when the plan for a collabo was hatched. The two hit studio and in her own words she says;
"Thank you Diamond Platnumz for this opportunity. Africa get ready for our new project #Uganda, #Tanzania." We can't wait.
Zari and the Nataka Kulewa singer then went to Double Tree Hotel in Dar-es-Salaam where they enjoyed a cool breeze while sipping white wine in the sun...This is not going down well with Diamond Platnumz girl friend, Wema Sepetu (Miss Tz 2006), but Zari seems to be unstoppable.
At this point one fan noted; "Since her rich baby daddy left her, took the kids - she's been on a prowl! So Diamond is a fair game as far as she is concerned."
Meanwhile, Forbes will want to hear from Zari. Soon, you might see Zari being featured in the list of top East African socialites, if at all that category exists. Just like beauty contests, you are supposed to audition and when you don't, you should not be shocked with the outcome.
Forbes is NOW contacting Zari for her story so if she accepts and it is worth featuring on their space, Zari could be appearing on the Forbes Lifestyle Magazine one of these days, don't say we didn't warn you...!
Back to the Diamond Platnumz issue, Zari wrapped it up with this line; "Don't live your life enslaved by guilt, you must do what is right for you even if other people have problem with it #Diamonds#mummy fabulous self"

Desire Luzinda's facebook likes stand at 78,128 currently and they continue to increase. It should be noted that before the photo scandal, her FB likes were slightly above 50,000 but from the time the photos leaked on the internet and also spread on social media, she has got over 20,000 likes in just a week.
Before issuing her apology, Desire made sure she smuggles in her latest track 'Ekitone'.
Franklin is equally enjoying his new found family. His facebook likes were below 1,000 but have since shot up to over 4,000 and about to get to the likes limit of 5,000 friends.
Yesterday, Franklin was enjoying football and appealed to his new found followers not to bring up the issue of his former 'kyana' as he prefers to call her, it was football time and for as long as comments on his timeline were football related, he was receptive. To drive the point home, the OGA used Luganda..."Mbasaba mukomye ebigambo bya Desire nange wano" as seen below.
"Please guys let's move on from my relationship issue and have fun out here, it's football weekend," Franklin added.
I'm sorry - Desire Luzinda Apologizes for Leaked Pics
Desire has already issued her apology which spoke volumes about her father. He made some remarks that did not go down well with her.
In her apology, she was clear; "I want to sincerely apologise to my mother, to my daughter, to my family, to my friends, my fans and any other people who have been offended by these images."
Following Desire's apology, Franklin was asked if he will issue an apology for having released the pics, he said; "No Way, I can't."

Weasel's pregnant girl friend, Samira Tumi, is still in shock after what Weasel is terming as goons came to their Makindye Neverland home and beat up a guard who denied them access to the premises.
Neverland house is owned by Jeff Kiwa, Radio and Weasel but from the time the singing duo fired Kiwa as their manager, there is an ongoing court case to determine how this property matter will be resolved. More of that here: Radio, Weasel Secure Court Order to Evict Jeff.
It's not clear why Jeff had to go to the property well knowing that there is an order that stops him from doing so, but anyway, he together with Pallaso went to Neverland to shoot their latest video from there. The guard, Senyondo, denied them access. This was when Pallaso and Jeff and two others forced their way in and beat him very badly in the process.
As the battering was going on, Samira was busy recording the proceedings with her cell phone. Jeff told her not to record anything, but this alerted one of the fellows who was in action to throw an object at Samira smashing window glasses in the process.
Police was able to swing into action and Jeff Kiwanuka of Team No Sleep Entertainment Crew was arrested for assault and battery charges. Yesterday, Pallaso had to hand himself in after police men made 'life very difficult' for his wife as they asked her to produce Pallaso. She is in Uganda for the first time checking on her hubby who has been around for at least seven months. The sight of mean looking cops who wanted to arrest Pallaso made her freak out.
Meanwhile, pundits are keenly observing the pace at which Pallaso was arrested, arraigned in court and had he failed to raise the bail money, he would be in Luzira by now just like the other accomplices. Could this be the reason Pallaso is now trying to bring up the Karamagi issue?
Friday, 07 November 2014
The Mayanja family needs to sit down and sort out a few things, otherwise at this rate, something nasty might happen. Chameleone's young brother, Pallaso and Jeff Kiwa both of Team No Sleep were arrested for beating up a one Senyondo who was guarding Moze Radio and Weasel's Neverland home in Makindye.

Right now, Radio and Weasel are on tour in South Africa and are expected back on Tuesday, but hours after they had left, their former manager, Jeff Kiwa and Pallaso went to Makindye where they beat up Senyondo for denying them access to the premises. Why go there when the boys are away!!!!
Weasel Speaks Out
"Attention; I'ts a pity that for the second time running, Jeff Kiwa and his goons have attacked our home while we are away for our South African tour. We are calling upon all our dear friends, fans and family to stop this evil that is becoming a cancer.."
This is coming at the time when Samira Tumi had just said Yes when Weasel proposed to her this Tuesday, Mrs Weasel, as she prefers to be called is nursing injuries at a yet to be known hospital after goons attacked her. It should be recalled that she is very heavy. (Weasel and Samira Show off Baby Bump)
Police yesterday was able to arrest Jeff Kiwa (Ex-Goodlyfe Manager) and today, Pallaso took himself to Katwe Police station to make a statement but he was arrested. They were later arraigned in court on charges of causing grievous bodily harm. They survived going to Luzira prison after paying shs10m cash to secure their bail.
Their accomplices failed to get money and were sent to Luzira until Nov.21. On being released, Pallaso attacked Chameleone calling him a murderer in reference to the Karamaji case just because he had shared a video which showed Senyondo being beaten to pulp.
"Yes I got in a fight today (Nov6) and I am perfectly not denying that .. But that was because I went to Jeffs house to prepare for a shoot today and a random guy beat me with a stick that got nails in it multiple times on the head leaving me with multiple cuts and he coulda done worse if if aint rushed him to the ground in defending my self..."
Meanwhile, Pallaso's US based wife has only been around for five days but she should be thinking of going back. She had to lock herself in the house as police was hunting for the husband, she refused to open and the hunt was not about to stop, so Pallaso had to hand himself to the authorities at least for the wife to have some peace, and that's when he was arrested.

Socialite Zari Tlale Hassan (34) is in talks with Tanzania's Bongo flavour star, Diamond Platnumz, who she met on a plane enroute to her next destination after spending three days in Harare.
While on board, Zari talked about a number of things, her lifestyle and of course her holiday in Harare. The mom of three did not leave out the mother of all parties, 'The Zari All White Ciroc Party' that will be held on December 18, 2014. Could Diamond Platnumz be the surprise guest artiste? May be yes, now that they are in talks.
It was not long before she leaned on the star discussing many other business dealings in swahili. Diamond Platnumz, real name, Nasib Abdul Juma (25) is a Bongo flavour recording artist from Tanzania.
Zari was among those who were comforting Desire Luzinda over her leaked photos that went viral for the last seven days. "I'm behind you with love from South Africa," Zari wrote on Desire's Instagram profile. Using her facebook profile. Desire apologized for the leaked photos saying that her jilted lover breached the trust.

It's taken a week for singer Desire Luzinda to make a statement on the nud# photos that were leaked on the internet and spread on social media.
Highlights of Desire LUZINDA's apology:
"To all my fans in Uganda and all over the world, as you might be aware, there has been a lot of fanfare and discussion in the media and social media about my photos taken in private that were leaked to the public by a jilted lover."
The photos which showed the singer's face in a jovial mood as they were being shot plus other poses surfaced online last Friday but by Saturday evening, the pics had gone viral.
This is it: Desire Luzinda's Oga Leaks Her Nud8 Pic
"The facts about this matter are that these were photos taken in privacy with someone I loved. In our private moments, we all have our “moments of madness”. The bottom line is that I trusted this person and never hoped that something done in private would find its way to the public domain irrespective of our differences.

In Desire's apology, she says this was a breach of trust.
"I want to sincerely apologise to my mother, to my daughter, to my family, to my friends, my fans and any other people who have been offended by these images. Like I said, this was a breach of trust by someone I loved. I take full responsibility for having lost my mind to take such shameful pics. This person has not only abused that trust but now seeks to drag me down."
I'm a decent person, a mother and industrious woman, so these images in no way should define who I am. To all my fans who have stood by me in this period asking me to be firm amidst the tempest, a big thank you, Desire concluded.

Many have put her on suicide watch following what happened to her last Friday that has since been the talk of the town. The latest is that the Minister of State for Ethics and Integrity, Rev. Fr. Simon Lokodo has directed police to investigate musician Desire Luzinda and her ex-lover, Ebikeme Ebuomor Ebenhron Franklin alias Baguma.
In her latest message, the singer says; ''Fighters Never Quit." This means that she is not about to give up with her music career. A fan was asking her yesterday that she needs to come out with a statement for the fans, but the Ekitone singer replied that; I'm quiet for a reason.
When the time is right, she will certainly issue a statement but at the moment, she is still being judged. Police is reluctant to act on the orders of the minister and their argument is, Desire was only a victim, however, if she can come and report the matter to police, then they will act accordingly.
Right now police is investigating the issue of a Nigerian national who came as a visitor and now has a Ugandan passport. According to his file, this is the second passport which was issued in March 2014 after he claimed that the one issued in 2011 got lost.
Words of encouragement......
Mariam Ndagire - "What befell my fellow female artist DESIRE LUZINDA is unfortunate and as a woman and female artist I humbly request you all not to judge her but pray for her to go through this storm and come out of it in one piece. Desire wherever you are know that you have a shoulder to lean on in me and its not the end of the world. Always remember to love yourself more than any other person."
Zari - "I'm behind you, with love from South Africa."
Mary Luswata is of the view that Desire Luzinda should not be arrested because she has suffered enough.

The comedian was in bad shape a few days back after the vessels pumping blood to his heart were blocked, but he has since improved and feeling better, though, he requires a Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) surgery which will be carried out in India after raising over shs40m. He needs you support.
On December 13, 2014 Katto Lubwama is organizing what he has termed as 'The Legendary Act of Kato Lubwama' and the fee will be $100. Some of his fans were complaining of the huge amount but the comedian said; "Theatre is all about love so this is a lifetime legendary act on stage."
Those interested in tickets can call this number 0752621582 and once they say 'bisso' they will be entitled to a discount.
Regarding his acting and political ambitions, Katto says that he will continue acting and the campaigns will go on as planned now that he intends to unseat the Rubaga South MP John Ken Lukyamuzi, The Man.

It's just days after Producer Didi and Panadol Wabasajja were sent to jail for recording and distributing x-rated music videos.
State Minister for Ethics and Integrity, Rev. Fr. Lokodo, who arrested Panadol Wabasajja last month has now directed police to question Desire Luzinda on the nud pics that have made rounds on social media since Friday. The minister also ordered for the arrest of her ex-Nigerian lover, Ebikeme Ebuomor aka Baguma Franklin who is currently believed to be in Kuwait.
The minister added that the two will be charged with exhibiting pornographic material contrary to section 13 of the Anti-Pornography Act.
The act reads in part: "A person who produces or participates in the production of, or traffics in, publishes, broadcasts, procures, imports, exports or in any way abets pornography contrary to sub section 1 commits an offence and is liable, on conviction, to a fine not exceeding five hundred currency points or imprisonment not exceeding ten years or both."
Five hundred currency points is the equivalent of shs50m or 10 years in prison.
The Tebakulimba singer was able to make a posting on her facebook profile, but it was one of her songs dubbed Ekitone. Meanwhile, her facebook likes have shot from 50,000 to over 60,000 in just three days. One of her fans was asking her to come out and at least issue a statement or apologise to her fans for what happened, but the singer said she is quiet for a reason.
It has also turned out that some of her problems are attributed to the VIP tables at her Black and White Affair that were sold on credit and todate, they have not been cleared. To make matters worse, some of the guests pledged at the concert which doubled as a charity event, but they have still not honoured their pledges leading to the problems Luzinda is faced with currently.
And being faced with a ten-year-jail sentence after her pics in all angles have done rounds on social media with loan sharks on her case, what does the diva do?

As millions of viewers are still getting to terms with Desire's pics that were leaked last Friday by her Nigerian Oga, Franklin, the singer is in studio working on her next song dubbed Tononya which means Don't Look for Me.
The song which is likely to be an instant hit will feature Franklin Ebuomor Ebikeme, and the message is clear, don't look for me following what you have done...!
When Franklin was taking those shots, Desire in her suit was singing for him the Equation song...'Our love is so magical elinga equation ooohh ebalancingahh..I will hold you tight never let you go (by then she was holding the center folds) I promise I will never make you cry..Oh Baby....Nkukwataa nga ekyatiika..."
Ebikeme was busy recording while enjoying the moment back then, but last week, the two fell out after he failed to bail her from loan sharks who wanted her to spend a night at Luzira prison for a shs16m debt.
The Equation singer was saved from the coolers after Seya raised shs10m. It was then that Desire gave her version in which she said that the Oga conned her (Desire Luzinda Was Conned by Nigerian Oga) something that Franklin was quick to rubbish and also gave the main reasons why he did not come to her rescue, I Could Not Rescue Her, She Was Cheating On Me.
Desire has given facebook a break since the activity there is way too much for her and resorted to a relatively low activity Instagram and amazingly, she is strong. "Talent is where the heart settles. Thank you all I'm more on my feet than my head down..."
Regarding her trending V-pose, she says ''Spread the love and do the challenge. This is crazy." She is also sorry for her Seya who is being dragged into this with fake comments.
This is what led the Nigerian Oga to spill the beans....

Take It or Leave It, We're Married-Joel Isabirye - The couple was to celebrate their first anniversary on December 05.
Last week, Rebecca changed her facebook profile name from Rebecca Jjingo Isabirye to Rebecca Alice Jjingo. The Beat FM radio host does not want to be defined as Isabirye's wife anymore after he accused her of stealing shs30m and the false stabbing accusations.
Meanwhile, on (Oct 26), their neighbour in Najjera heard them shouting on top of their voices and on coming to the balcony, she saw Joel running while yelling for help as Jjingo held a kitchen knife. "Help, help the woman wants to cut me," Isabirye yelled but Jjingo was not taking any of that as she said; "You have tortured me enough!"
Joel was like she is free to come back provided she can change her ways but Jjingo is like It's over.

The celebrity couple was spotted at Flames on Wedneaday attending a birthday party. They also spent the Halloween night at Club Venom. Weasel is such a darling, he's been taking care of the back pains plus other hormonal changes from the time he came back from the US a few weeks back.
In the pic, Weasel is seen feeling the bump and Samira enjoying every moment. Two months back, Weasel went to her parent's home in Jinja for a traditional ceremony, also known as 'Okukyala' where a series of discussions were held including the dates for the introduction ceremony and eventually the wedding.
Meanwhile, the two months he was away, Samira could not stand it all by herself, she had to reach out to him using her facebook profile; "Can't wait to see you again..." and Weasel's response was, "Coming home soon."
Any minute from now, Samira will be downloading. In a related development, Radio and Weasel held their Neera Concert at Freedom City and Mukono and on Sunday, they were in Kasangati. The dynamic duo were able to perform their old hits plue their very latest songs that include; Simunino, Okwetegereza and Kukumba.

#TeamDesire is not sleeping. First, they were able to prevent her going to prison on Thursday when they raised shs 10M to clear part of the shs 16M debt that had got the Tebakulimba singer arrested.
She then came out to clear her name saying that the money causing her problems was actually taken by the Naija man, Franklin Emuobor who has failed to make good on his part. When Franklin learnt of her version, he also gave his side of the story accompanied with Desire's hot nud# pics. In one of the shots, she is standing with a striker pose, and in another, she is all spread on a sofa and so many more. They were trending on social networks the whole of yesterday.
That was not all, he also went on to reveal Desire Luzinda's past and current lovers. Now it looks like Desire's camp has waken up after recovering from the show of a lifetime yesterday. The latest to counter the undressed pics is Ebikeme's Uganda passport in the name of Baguma Franklin. It expires in 2023.
It's not clear if it's his love for Uganda that compelled him to get a Ugandan passport, but the change of name from Ebikeme to BAGUMA leaves a lot to be desired.
This morning, Ebikeme was calling Dembe FM telling them of how he sponsored the Black and White concert with hopes of recovering his money from the gate collections, but to his surprise, Desire gave out most of the tickets free of charge wanting to fill up the venue and that was the cause of their misunderstandings.
The Dembe Team asked if that could warrant releasing his lover now ex-lover's nud pics...and in a very strong Naija accent, Baguma said things which were not clear before the line disconnected.

October is over, and the month had sad and interesting gossip stories from the Ugandan perspective.
Bebe Cool Dedicates Love You Everyday to the President for the good things he has done.
Joe in Town - American RnB singer was in town though he was looking relatively old compared to his last visit, some fans thought he was not the real Joe.
Cindy's Wallet - Went missing from Club Ambiance, and according to her, the prime suspect was Producer Kays, though Chameleone later responded on this that while in club, you need to watch over your property because there are pickpockets and loose women everywhere.
Bad Black's Skin -Shanita Namuyimbwa appeared in court this month but a close look at her skin revealed that it was tending to it's original black color, could the bleaching effects be taking shape?, may be not.
The month included the Kampala Capital City Authority festival or carnival and this was taken by Bebe Cool who decided to perform Bobi Wine's songs leaving his fans and Bobi's very excited.
Sitya Loss star on BBC - The best thing Kenzo has done this year is to globe-trot plus enjoying his Sitya Loss Youtube views take over any Ugandan video. It's in this month that Kenzo appeared on BBC.
Zari - Farouk - Ivan - It has always been her show and she will do anything to claim her space. The mom of three, Zari reunited with Ivan Semwanga, the father of her three soldiers as she prefers to call them.
Strange but true, Actor John Segawa lost his dreadlocks that he had been with for the last 12 years in the month of October 2014 when thugs raided his house, beat him up and left him for dead.
Bebe Cool threw his weight behind Ellah and indeed, he was the happiest when Esther Akankwasa was evicted. But the pint-sized model did not have kind words for him on coming back.
The drama then crossed to Judith Heard who was hanging out with Emmanuel Adebayor making a field day for Urban TV's Luswata. It was too much that when Judith Heard met Mary Luswata, a fight was expected, but surprisingly, all was well.
Businessman Kasiwukira was murdered and in the morning of the day he was to be buried, Big Eye's car was torched.
WizKid in Town - It was the Guinness VIP All Black party and BET award winner, WizKid was the main performer. On the sides of his visit, he recorded a video with Radio and Weasel. It 's there that Sheila Gashumba got a chance to interview WizKid. Word started doing rounds that the two had had a thing.
Frank Gashumba came to the rescue of his daughter, Sheila, and started calling people piglets and so on...
Miss Uganda - Leah Kalanguka robbed Gashumba of his limelight by taking over social networks. Most Ugandans were not happy with the choice of this year's Miss Uganda claiming that she was not all that........but wait a second, going by the local and international coverage, she could be the next L'upita Nyongo..
Radio Consultant, Joel Isabirye took over with his wife Rebecca Jjingo. First, his life was in danger and in the end, he had dragged his now ex-wife to police for having stolen his shs 30m. Screen shots of the couple's interaction tried to grab the lime light but, that was just that Desire had taken over.
As the month was ending, Desire was arrested for failing to pay shs 16M debt. Seya was able to save her from being taken to jail, but when she came out to tell her story, she put all the blame on Franklin. This did not go well with Franklin who went on rampage and released the singer's nud# pics.

All hell broke loose when Desire Luzinda referred to her Nigerian lover, Franklin Emuobor, as a conman. This is the man who financed Desire Luzinda's Black and White Affair.
To his surprise, Desire was moving out with several men that include singers, politicians, sportsmen and so on. He recalled what he went through like selling off a friend's car, borrowing money from all corners just to fund the Black and White Affair concert in June this year.
Franklin was told his money would be reimbursed through gate collections but to his surprise, most of the guests came to the venue with their tickets implying that they had bought them elsewhere. After the show, Franklin was the one footing most of the bills, so today, when he learns of Desire's claims that he is the reason for her problems, he wonders!
"With that long list of her's that will not end today, how do you expect me to pay the debts she incurred during the concert. If I were your brother, what will you advise. If Im really that bad, would she be that excited while I took that pic.."
Franklin was still releasing more cozy pics of Desire Luzinda, but the singer was quick to send him a ceasefire message saying; "Please you have won this war."
In one of the pics, Desire is all spread and the other, the singer is standing with one arm holding her center folds and the other forms a V sign around her kitty.
Meanwhile, another debtor has come up. This one is a Ugandan and only learnt of Desire's problems after she was put on TV last night. He is demanding for close to 8million though he will not press charges, but on the advise of his lawyers, he will bank the cheques that Desire gave him, should they bounce, it's then that he will decide what steps to take.
This is the money she used to buy an airticket for Franklin, who had become broke after spending so much on Desire's concert. He was supposed to be one of those to have sent Desire money yesterday, but on the advise of one of his colleagues, he backed off.

"Helping someone is not a guarantee they will return the favor when in time of need. Be the friend in need knowing payment comes from God."
See also: Desire Luzinda Photos
Those were Desire Luzinda's words after she placed several calls to Franklin letting him know of how she was in trouble for the money she lent him but the Oga was not in position to help.
As you may now be aware, Desire was arrested yesterday for failing to clear a shs 16M debt. Apparently, she had borrowed this money to help out her very close Nigerian friend, Franklin Ebikeme Emoubor Ebenhron who claimed to be doing business in Dubai at the time, but as it turns out, she might forget about whatever man that was advanced..
Franklin did inject some good funds in Desire Luzinda's Black and White Affair concert that was held at Kampala Serena in June, but along the way, the businessman became broke. Talking to a close pal, Desire said; "This was the second time he was walking on the streets in Uganda and I was the only soul that offered him shelter, food and gave up all that I had for him to get back on his feet."
Desire made over 100m in the Serena show and of course had to knock off the overheads and must have had a reasonable balance but the reason this debt went out of hand was because she expected that Franklin would honour his part and pay up.
It's not yet clear if she has been able to pay the remaining amount, but at least that is easier to sort out when she is outside the court and police confines.

His Mercedes Benz-CLS 500, silver in colour with 'KATSHA 8 GP' registration plates led him to win the award of Best Car Owner. He also scooped another award of Mr. Uganda.
Katumba Shaffic commonly known as Katsha or Sushi man has now added a black Hummer to his fleet. He has customised it with 'KATSHA 9 GP' plates.
He was the first man to introduce a sushi themed party to the local scene and since then, there has not been any other party. In September when Jose Chameleone was performing in South Africa, Katsha paid $20,000 for the 'One Man, One Million, One Show' that will take place on December 18 at Serena Hotel.

Court bailiffs who have been looking for her since (Oct 23) say her known numbers were off and she was shifting from one location to the other until they landed on her in Wandegeya. On arresting her, she tried going back to the house to at least put on heels, but they did not give her that chance. She was in handmade beaded sandals made in Kenya.
The Nina Omwami singer was then taken to court and while there, she made several calls to close friends including the Nigerian Oga, but most of them said it was on short notice. According to the bailiff, Desire borrowed money for her Black and White Affair concert that was held at Serena Hotel in June this year.
Her Manager only known as Paddy was able to secure shs 10m with a promise of paying the 6m by Friday, Oct 31, 2014. It was then that Desire who was clad in a pink and black dress was released. Otherwise, she was not allowed to move an inch. Two friends were shielding her from the paparazzi who were trying to get the best shots possible, but with difficulty. The bummy singer was whisked off in a tinted-MarkX that sped off before she could even close it's door.
It's said that former Kampala Mayor, Nasser Sebagala aka Seya came to her rescue. Meanwhile, her latest shots reveal a lighter skin complexion, has she joined the Bad Black-Vera Sidika camp!

The Nseyeya singer seems to be back on track and ready to rock her fans like she has been doing before. She was in studio today and these were her words: "The place that re-awakens my soul...Music....glad to be able to experience that once again."
In the last one month or so, she has been working with artistes like Hope Mukasa and The Ganda Boys. Juliana is featured in Hope Mukasa's 'Ensonga Ssemasonga' and 'Something of my Life' by the Ganda Boys which is even playing on radio stations in Ghana and Nigeria.
The Oriflame Brand Ambassador is now done with her break in the US and it's time for music. Many thought she could give up on music following what happened to her three months back, but the singer said that she was so passionate about music to quit the profession.

You are free to come back provided you stop stealing and fighting, Joel tells Rebecca Jjingo.
She at times leaves home past midnight and wont return, attempts to talk to her over her behaviour have fallen on deaf ears. All she will do is to become hostile and physical. This time around, she wanted to finish me off with a knife, that woman is very tough, Joel said.
The famous helicopter couple is no more. They were to celebrate their first anniversary in just under two months, but that has since changed.
They've been having issues like any other couple but this time around, things went out of hand after the wedding band went missing. Jingo put the ring off as she prepared some vegetables but moments later, it was nowhere to be seen and Joel did not seem to help matters either. A fight ensued shortly after. "It's true she tried stabbing me, the issue of the broken glass is her version," Joel added.
Joel had promised Rebecca a lot of things but had not fulfilled any including buying her a car and starting a business for her worth Shs100m as capital. To make matters worse, Joel has opened as many as five companies but Rebecca is not a director in any of them.
On Tuesday, Joel reported to Najjera police a case of theft in which it is alleged that Rebecca stole his money that had been put in a laptop bag. It was to the tune shs 30m.
Sharon, Grace, Ritah and now Rebecca are some of Joel's old flames. He will be celebrating his birthday at Guvnor on Thursday next week.
Meanwhile, he is rumoured to have another babe going by the name Irene who has just given birth, he also hinted of chartering a chopper to a wedding this coming month, could it be another wedding, may be not, but we will be watching that space after all.

It's five days from the time Leah Kalanguka was crowned Miss Uganda. She has since been branded all sorts of things and called names but in her words she says, everyone is entitled to their opinion.
However, this bashing of Leah whose only crime was to beat the other contestants hands down to be crowned Miss Uganda has friends who have flipped the coin and shared some insights on the current Miss Uganda, Leah Kalanguka.
Lillian, a high school friend known to Leah for the last ten years has something positive as opposed to the bashing the beauty queen has been subjected to in the last four days.
"I went to high school with Leah. She played volleyball, was an athlete, was involved in every charity event from church and school clubs. Truth is she is a genius. Ain’t no mathematician I know on this planet since Pythagoras like that sister, Leah Kalanguka."
"Leah used to fix all our computer and laptop problems; she is a wizard at machines, whatever she touched even if it was as dead as a 'dodo', she made it work. She graduated with a first class in Computer Engineering."
This is my own definition of beauty as taught to me by Leah in the past decade.
Beautiful eyes are eyes imbued with kindness,
"Uganda has and will never have a beauty Queen more deserving of the crown than Leah Kalanguka, " she concluded
Leah will represent Uganda at the 64th edition of the Miss World Final at ExCel London on December 14, 2014.

I'm so disappointed in you, Paul Jingo tells Isabirye.
The marriage rift between Joel Isabirye and Rebecca Jjingo has continued as Paul Jingo, a brother in-law publicly mocks the radio consultant on social media. Initially, it was the stabbing and now, she has left their home with shs30m at least from a chat he had on facebook.
This has forced actor Paul Jingo to come out of his shell and this si what he had to say:
"Joel, Joel Joel please stop that crap on Facebook. We are not fools. We are fade up of your..... Please act like a grown up. What of type and kind of a man can you ever be? Am disappointed in you. You are such a disgrace to your fellow basoga, to your profession and to your fellow men. People are despising you instead."
"A bad work man always blames his tool. You have failed to show us that you are a real man who can manage a small girl like Rebecca now you think the social media will solve your domestic failures? You are only inconveniencing people. Be the man I saw at the beginning. Shame shame shame. Why use the social media to solve your domestic disharmony? Nobody is praising you joel."
Interestingly, Joel did not respond but just shared this status on his wall acknowledging that he had seen it.
Meanwhile, some sections had it that his ex-lover, Ritah had hacked into his facebook account, but Joel was quick to defend her saying that: "leave Ritah Kaggwa out of this. She has no problem and no one should drag her into things where she is just an observer...she may have her flaws but she can NEVER get a knife to stab a fly or a mosquito.nor can she steal 15,000 USD.

Last Friday, radio consultant, Joel Isabirye survived being stabbed as he explained; "This morning someone tried to stab me with a knife and I was lucky to survive. Those who slept praying for me your prayers worked. I have sent messages to a few people who if anything happens to me soon will know who did it."
The couple that made headlines using a helicopter on their intro and wedding last year have a month and a few days to mark their first anniversary. Joel has had a string of failed relationships but friends and family are praying for them to at least make one year after their wedding.
Rebecca has since been hauled up in prayer; "No weapon formed against me shall prosper, Am not afraid anymore."
Joel resorts to parables to drive his point home.
"I used to have a friend called Derrick in primary school. If he did wrong he would cry louder than the one he wronged. All of a sudden everyone would sympathize with him and forget that he did something very wrong. Sometimes tears play a big role in hiding the bad things people do."
As all that was going on, his other ex-lover, Ritah Kaggwa shared a pic of Joel cruising in a taxi with this caption; "Mbu Yagendela mu Chopper ate Nakomelawo mu Taxi, life can be unpredictable, let's keep on praying for each other."
Joel - "If a point needs to be made I will charter another helicopter to a friend's wedding next month, perhaps it could signal that taxis, choppers and the tx i love and hold dear are still forms of transport."
Ritah Love Kaggwa - "I use public means to save money for your sons's milk and nappies, doesn't make sense drive or a hire a chopper when I can't own a house back home."
Joel and Ritah were told to get a room or better still take their exchanges of social networks, but Joel said that it's unlikely as he is 'happily married'.

The Miss Uganda pageant was held yesterday at Speke Resort Munyonyo. Leah Kalanguka (23) from IGANGA District beat the other contestants. She replaces Stella Nantumbwe aka Ellah, the only Ugandan housemate left in the Big Brother House.
More on Miss Uganda
Leah promised to encourage the youth to take on commercial agriculture as a way of fighting poverty. This year's event was premised on the theme of 'Promoting Agricultural Entreprenuership among the youth.' It's been 20 years since a beauty queen came from the East with the last one being Linda Bazalaki in 1994.
Bootyliscious Desire Luzinda was among the entertainers of the night with Capital FM's Flavia Tumusiime and KFM's Roger Migisha as the MC's.
"I was overwhelmed when my name was read as the winner. I could not have won this pageant if it was not for the grace of God," Leah said shortly after being crowned.
Like it was in the case for Phiona Bizzu, even Leah Kalanguka has got tongues wagging. The MC of the event Roger Mugisha had this to say following the various complaints;
"She had the highest score according to the 6 judges , she is from Kamuli and was crowned miss Uganda 2014-2015. If you don't participate in elections, Big brother etc..Never complain when go getters take action. Congratulations Leah You believed and have achieved. The 'Angelina Jolies' of Uganda think that some Gps satellite will track them down to win a title that requires voluntary participation."

Sisimuka Uganda CEO Frank Gashumba defends his daughter from opportunists.
It all started with a post on a FAKE - NTV Be My Date page that his daughter, Sheilla Gashumba, had been fired from NTV for having had a thing or two with Nigeria's WizKid.
Sheilla had this to say; "If doing interviews with artists is the new way of sleeping with them then well and good. Am a TV presenter. My job is to get the best for my show! I'm sorry that you missed the WizKid show and you are very angry at that."
"What if I did it with Wizkid, why are you concerned though!! are you my boyfriend!!!"
Like it has been the case in the past, he was quick to come to the aid of his only daughter, he did not have kind words for the 'haters'. "I'm sorry for all those hurling insults at Sheilla. She is better than you, well mannered, she is known by people who matter, sleeps well, walks well, not used a taxi in her life and those who mess with her, if you are not careful, she will be heading you."
"To those of you who are always supportive of her, God Bless you, " He concluded.
Comedian Patrick Idring aka Salvador is one of those in support of Gashumba's response. He has branded him 'Father of the Year' and also added that those who are fathers to girls are the only one's in a position to understand Frank's reaction.

'I'm here to mingle' were his words while appearing on NTV The Beat.
Nigerian singer, WizKid, has indeed been having a nice time since then. He was on Wednesday performing at the All White VIP party at Golf Course Hotel. It was an invite only party, you had to be seen taking a guinness at your favorite hangout place.
Some won tickets after taking Guinness selfies to be able to attend the party. It was hosted by Capital FM's Flavia Tumusiime. The party kicked off at 8pm with our very own DJ's spinning the discs. Navio, Cindy and Chameleone among others thrilled the guests. DJ Xclusive followed doing what he does best.
A few minutes to 11:00pm, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun aka Wizkid hit the stage doing most of his tracks, It was a two hour performance.
Other than the VIP Guinness show, WizKid has made the best of his time in Kampala. The BET award winner was able to shoot the 'Don't Cry' video with Radio and Weasel. It was during that time that NTV's Sheila Gashumba came to interview him, but the 'On Top Your Matter' singer kept on staring at Sheila's butt, hmmm

Zari's on and off hubby, Ivan Semwanga has once again undergone a plastic surgery operation. It looks like the operation he did 14 months back did not offer the desired results forcing him to do it again. It has cost him approximately shs 100m.
The last time he did it, his wife Zari was dating ex-big brother and basket ball star, Isaac Lugudde aka LK4, Zari was deeply, madly in love with his albs. Like any other couple, things did not work out, but LK4 had quenched his thirst anyway.
Ivan has again gone for the surgery to try and work on his fat belly and also reduce on the breasts. This is coming at the time after Zari has just dumped her latest lover, Farouk Sempala, better known as the muscle man. Farouk dated Zari longer than LK4.
Given that background, it's not surprising to see how hard Ivan is trying to achieve a body closer to LK4 or Farouk. However, it's not clear if his efforts will pay off because as he is recuperating from the operation, nutritional drinks are right by his bedside.
We only hope this time around, the efforts pay off, otherwise sooner rather than later, we could see him doing another operation.

"I'm aware of all the comments doing rounds with my choice of shoes. I was going to walk on hard terrain, how was I supposed to walk with heels in a place like that, If you don't like the shoes, choke on them."
"This picture with JH, let me say something... Judith Heard and I are not friends, I'm doing my job...those people who are looking for actors and actresses should better look for her, she is the best character you can ever have. She walks up to me, hugs and pecks me but she is so frail and bonny... saying how she loves me, we are both women and we should not be fighting..."

The highlight of the event was when socialite Judith Heard bumped into Urban TV's Mary Luswata, many thought a fight was going to ensue, but the mom of three just embraced the lady who has made it a point to calling her all sorts of names when she gets the opportunity.

This Saturday, all roads will lead to One Love Beach for Bobi Wine's Busabaala Fest, otherwise dubbed 'Manya Size Yoo Concert'.
"Everything is in place, we are putting up the stage, the mood is getting hotter. I am ready for Busabala Fest, Are You," Bobi asked his fans yesterday.
This afternoon, his wife, Barbie Itungo shared a pic of Bobi meditating with this caption "This Meditation***..This prayer...Your guess is as good as mine. And everybody says...AMEN." Most responses to the prayer were tagged to rain and also avoiding a flop.
Meanwhile, he was on one local TV last night looking so calm and sober. He revealed quite a lot. He told of how he attended over six schools in his primary and attended over six schools in secondary. Bebe Cool is his OB, they met at Kitante (for a short time though) and at the time, they were staying in the same area. Bebe was in the affluent area while Bobi was in Ghetto area of Kamwokya.
The show host went on to ask him if there's a chance that him and Bebe will have a collaboration song any time soon, Bobi Wine was like ; 'What shall we be singing about?' I sing about developmental issues, he concluded.
Bobi Wine also revealed that he has no issues with Bebe Cool, it's the public that thinks otherwise. Most artistes that he has collaborated with and those signed to the Fire Base Crew will perform on that day. Songs like Size Yo, Byekwasao, Dilemma, and Matyansi Butyampa which Bebe Cool did at the carnival will be performed.

Urban TV Gossip Queen, Mary Luswata has solely put the blame on Judith Heard for Uganda losing the match against Togo, the only game Uganda has lost at Namboole in over ten years.
"As Ugandans, we will never forgive you for losing the match to Togo. You woman, if you hadn't slept with Adebayor, we could not have lost that match, how cheap can you be...You have a long list ...from small boys to upcoming musicians, everyone who wants to get it can get it from you."
"Some one said you do it for charity and then another said you are like this big soda bottle that feeds so many people and then you are there that you want to fight for your marriage, there is no man in this world who will want anything to do with a woman with open leg syndrome."
"You sleep with everything and anything, now you slept with Adebayor and he is out of the country, how does that help you."
Mary Luswata went on to reveal to her viewers how JH failed to nail the American RnB singer, Joe Thomas who was in town a few days back. "Judith Heard was walking around like a headless chicken on heat while looking for Joe, but he snubbed her. Some one had warned him that you see that skinny black one is a no go, don't go anywhere near her."
Judith Heard is still recovering from the endless booze that was flowing at Chameleone's cocktail last night, but she will certainly respond to this.

As you may already be aware, Ugandan housemates, Ellah and Esther are both up for possible eviction this Sunday. Esther is loud and that is the one reason most housemates were citing for nominating her. On Monday, Biggie revealed the seven housemates up for eviction and Samantha, the current Head of House, was called to the diary room to add a housemate of her choice onto the list and that is how Ellah landed in hot soup.
All votes from Uganda constitute one vote implying that Uganda can only save one housemate. The other unfortunate bit is that even our neighbours, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania who could have come to our rescue are also up for eviction, so, all those are lost votes that could otherwise be saving one of the Ugandan housemate.
It's against that background that Bebe Cool has come out to put his weight behind the reigning Miss Uganda, Ellah.
"Hello Uganda, we as Ugandans have ONE housemate in the Big Brother house and her name is ELLAH but she is up for eviction coz she does not have our country vote, so I call upon all my fans and friends to pliz vote for her by typing ELLAH and send to 8884 or go to www.bigbrotherafrica.com and follow the instruction. NOTE: (On line u can vote 100 times in one hour)."
The other Ugandan karaoke dancer is an embarrassment to our nation which totally requires EVICTION this weekend. Let's all vote for ELLAH to stay in the big brother house, " Bebe concluded.
As Bebe puts it, Chameleone's video vixen is an embarrassment but that is exactly her strategy for playing the game which has won her support from West Africa. Ellah is so quiet that even when she opens her mouth, you can hardly hear what she is saying. The game this week is tagged on which Ugandan housemate is coming back next Sunday?

Farouk Sempala has been off facebook from the time of his break-up with Zari, but he only resurfaced hours after Zari bouncing back to Ivan, the father of her three sons.
"The inner intention matters most than the action it'self. We standby & defend those we believe in, doesn't matter how harshly or lightly they are gona be judged in the others eyes.." Pharouk noted on his wall this morning.
Pharouk is ever-calm and has always been so. We all remember when he received a call from Ivan's boys who were warning him to leave Zari or he will have it rough, but in his response, he was so humbled to the extent that the callers saw no point of continuing with hurling insults.
We hope this time around Zari stays a little longer. This means that Ivan will attend and support the Zari All White Party that will be held on December 18, 2014 at Guvnor.
These are SOME of Zari's lovers...!
Monday, 13 October 2014
After her split with Farouk Sempala last month, Zari and Ivan are back together. This was widely expected with Zari's forthcoming All White Party, many were certain that she could not pull it off without Ivan's involvement.
In the leaked pics, the couple is seen enjoying a moment together with Ivan loving every bit of it. Zari is so drunk that she can barely stand on her own. ''It's been long since these two were last spotted this close, " one noted.
Earlier on, Ivan had also hooked another babe who is as light as Zari, but with Zari bouncing back to reclaim what is hers, Pubeza will have to sort herself out as these two rekindle their love.
"I'm now waiting for Mr. Right, " were her words when she broke up with Farouk, could Ivan be Mr. Right, only time will tell most especially after the White Party on December 18, 2014.

Last Saturday, Cindy was one of the performers at the Inter University Fresher's Ball in Bakuli, Club Ambience. All was well up to the time she went on stage to perform. On coming back, she realised that her money purse was missing.
The top suspects were the people she shared the table with that included Producer Kayz and Chameleone's guard only known as PJ. Cindy used her wall to ask who stole her wallet between the Producer and Chamili's security guard.
Chameleone has been forced to respond, four days later, below is his full post which was backed up by a "Be Aware of Loose Women and Pick Pockets" pic.
"I should put this clear to whosoever is concerned, We are all parasites to nature and I accept fair parasites.But I am not pleased by anybody that dies to share who I am to build their dream. I want to respect you if there is a chance.NOT because you want me to. Funny is even the weak are professionals in weakness."
"All they do is plan how to survive like hyenas next to Simba!!! Honestly I love fair games and next time you carry your purse, carry the one to carry it too! I won't be watching my Fans and your business .Take a leaf, all you putting energy to such rubbish, buy a hoe, plant pine in the next ten years you will be happy to take my advice. Don't put your energy to little things and little on your future."
He then went on to share a youtube link for his latest Wale Wale video. It's ten days short of two months to the time when Chameleone will be holding his 1,000,000/- concert at Serena Hotel in Kampala.

Last Sunday was a bit busy. It was the annual KCCA - Kampala Festival and Big Brother Africa was also launching that night. Most roads leading to the city centre around Kampala road and Jinja road had been blocked to pave way for the festivities that stretched through the wee hours of Monday morning.
Several artistes performed but the highlight of the event was when Bebe Cool did Bobi Wine's 'Matyansi Butyampa', word by word (http://youtu.be/Qlcte_KmeOU), something that was welcomed by most Bobi Wine fans though some were quick to label him names.
Hours later, the Byekwaso singer, Bobi Wine through his facebook profile came out to say that when a former hater turns into a fan and he is not shy to show it, it's only mature to take it easy.
Below is Bobi Wine's full post;
"Now this goes to the Fire Base Army and all Bobi Wine Fans. I have seen a lot of soldiers so pissed and ranting on social media just because Baby Cool performed our songs in the carnival. NOW am saying to you soldiers, you don't have to get annoyed, it's OK for so one to be your fan."
"You have seen Shaggy come on stage and perform Bob Marley or Shabba Ranks songs first and then his. In music this is called RESPECT !! it doesn't mean he does not have his own songs, it's just that some times an artist needs to open their acts with more popular songs to work up the crowd and get him/her self accepted."
He then concluded; "So brothers and sisters... When a former hater turns into a fan and he is not shy to publicly show it, it's only mature to take it easy."

Basket ball star, Isaac Lugudde aka LK4 has turned 30 and among the first people to comment on his timeline was none other than his ex-lover, Zari the boss lady. Zari is single and loving it and now that the two are in South Africa, she could easily end up at LK4's birthday bash.
"Happy birthday. May you live to blow 100 candles, " Zari wrote on LK4's timeline.
Isaac still has fond memories of their time together. He once told of how the socialite is a tigress in bed. Zari has since bounced back to the father of her kids, Ivan and then dated Farouk Sempala, but split a few weeks back. She is now searching for Mr. Right.
In a related development, she was on Monday celebrating her 34th birthday with just a handful of friends, but the simplicity of the function got tongues wagging with many wondering how she could only invite five people when previous parties were always flooded with revellers.
They went on to say that it was Ivan funding those parties but now that he was sidelined, he turned off the taps. This rubbed her the wrong way, and using her facebook profile, she hit back (Zari Hits Back On Fake Birthday Talk).

Zuena's close pals have been urged to treat their maids well to ensure they do not turn against them. Housemaids can mean to be a nuisance at times if their supervisors treat them inhumanely. In the end, it's the children who suffer the brutality from the disgruntled maids.
The advice comes after Zuena's maid of six years took some days off leaving her to do all the home chores before rushing to compile her NTV Life Stories. Bebe Cool is then left to take care of their two-year-old, Caysan, but Zuena is worried he could be starving, so she calls her hubby to establish how they are getting on.
The Love You Everyday star just changed the topic and asked if she (Zuena) was well. This left the mom of three worried that her little boy had not had a meal, but later consoled herself by saying; "Anyway, I trust him when it comes to feeding and taking care of the kids."
Zuena's full post; "
"This is what happens when the maid goes to the village for a short while.I prepare the kids and take them to school as usual,then rush back home to do a few chores before heading to work & let the baby spend the day with daddy.at around 1pm,daddy Cay sends me pics of them swimming so i get curious & ask him if the baby has had lunch? then he changes the topic & asks me mbu honey oli bulungi? Lol kyoka daddy Cay oba omwana yalide lunch simanyi but i trust him when it comes to feeding & taking care of kids."
"Anyway we have to appreciate our maids coz they play a big role in our lives,treat her like your own sister, the way she's treated is the same way she'll treat you & your children.Celebrating 61/2 years with my maid."

Bebe Cool was yesterday performing at 4th Future of Cities Forum in Munyonyo where he dedicated his latest blockbuster hit song, 'Love You Everyday' to President Museveni.
"I dedicate this song to the President for the great things he has done, " Bebe Cool noted before proceeding for a chat with the President who was more than happy to receive him.
The dedication does not come as a surprise. In 2010 when Bebe Cool was shot in the legs at Nakumatt, it was President Museveni who paid for his medical bills in the US, he also checked on him at Nsambya hospital.
The president was so excited to see Bebe Cool jumping on his two legs as he performed the Love You Everyday song a sign to show that the shooting of four years back fully healed.
Uganda becomes the first country to host the forum.

This got a few tongues wagging as there was no mention of a birthday bash that would have free champagne flowing all night long as it has been the case before. Some were quick to link the sudden change of events to the fall out with her ex-lover, Ivan Semwanga who is now dating Pubeza.
On Sep 29, Zari who is currently in South Africa quickly succumbed to pressure and came up with an impromptu party that had a handful of guests, women only, numbering about four plus her sister, Ashurah. Other than the Versace birthday cake, it was just a mere drink up and way below the standards of 'Zari The Boss Lady'.
This got keyboards and smart phones busy more so at the time when Ivan was equally making headlines with his new catch, Zari was left with no choice but to reach out to all those worrying about her with these words;
"A bunch of...... ma bad, I meant certain people took time out of their miserable pathetic lives and decided to give opinions on how I shld live my life, raise my kids, what type of men I shld date, what cars I shld drive since what I drive is a show off (ladies who doesn't wanna pull up in cars like mine) .... ladies the last I checked this life is for ZEE not you. The month just ended which one of my bills are you paying? See, your opinions clearly are yours to keep.. you shld worry why your worried about me who is doing far much better than yall.."
The Zari White Party will be held on Dec 18, It's left to be seen if Ivan and Pubeza will grace the Arab Money party or Chameleone's One Million show that will be held on the same day.

Behind every successful man is a woman and Zuena Kirema Ssali, is the woman in Bebe Cool's life. On learning that his wife was fully behind him in the post that had him bashed all over social networks, he had some sweet words for her;
"11 years ago we exchanged vows AND said I do, we also did the Islamic Nika. Like any other marriage we have our ups & downs but most importantly we respect, care & love each other. I never knew the meaning of love until I met you Zuena...."
Below are the respective posts when Bebe Cool wrote banning some fans from his concerts if at all it turned out that those allegations were correct.

The Ghetto gladiator, Bobi Wine, was yesterday hosting the Buganda premier at his Busabala based One Love Beach. Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga was in areas of Makindye division for the tombs fundraising drive commonly known as Etofaali.
He also toured some establishments and met children from local primary schools. The hosts, Bobi Wine and his wife, Barbie together with their children were all dressed in a regalia befitting the occasion.
It's been a busy week for Bobi. As you may all be aware, Hon Ruhakana Rugunda replaced Hon. Amama Mbabazi as Prime Minister prompting words like;
"When I sang in 2008, Rt. Hon. Amama Mbabazi loved the song and tended to use it so much in his public speeches, I felt honored. However, Hon. Should have listened to this line in Akalimu ....Totunula mu sowani ya boss wo."
This was followed by several bashing messages. The Time Bomb singer bounced back with another post. "Okay, let me put this straight, I did not blast the former Prime Minister, I have so much respect for my leaders and I would never utter any statement to demean them whatsoever, and in this case, I was just relating some prophesies in my songs to current events."
However, as he was trying to get to terms with this, Bebe Cool was equally faced with fire from South Sudan for a comment he made, it rubbed a section of fans the wrong way.
Bobi Wine used the moment to shift attention from his Amama-talk to the Bebe SS-Saga. He went on to give Bebe Cool just a week to apologize to the South Sudan fans.

Last Saturday was the first ever Club Mega Fest that was held at Mandela National Stadium. Several local artistes performed ranging from Yung Mulo, Ziza Bafana, Sheebah Karungi and Coco Finger among others. The function was slated to start at noon but only kicked off five hours later.
The crowd was tending to be troublesome before Jamaican dance-hall artiste, Patra hit the stage in an outfit that left a lot to be desired. She performed for about 15 minutes. The Love You Everyday singer, Bebe Cool, hit the stage doing his thing but the fans had kind of had enough of the local flow.
Jamaican-American singer, Shaggy hit the stage performing his top hits as the crowd cheered him on. He performed for an hour and half before the Wombolombo singer, Burna Boy hit the stage. He pulled out some stroke that led his pant to split right in the middle.
Mafikizolo explained why they were unable to perform.
"To all our fans who came out to see us at Namboole Stadium, unfortunately we couldn't perform due to a situation beyond our control. Our excitement to perform turned into a disappointment after waiting for 4 hours backstage to rock our fans with our hits, " They wrote.
Chameleone was meant to perform too but failed to secure a return flight from South Sudan in time.
Below are some of the pics:

Cindy Is not in a Dilemma Anymore!!!!
It's official - Ken is for Cindy and the reverse is true. On Monday evening, South Africa based businessman, Kenny Muyiisa, was visiting at Cindy's parents seeking her hand in marriage.
This is a blow to Phina Masanyalaze, Uganda's Shakira who had hoped that her ex-lover, Ken could return to her life, but with the couple in advanced stages of their introduction ceremony, it only confirms that his heart belongs to the Ayokyayokya singer, Cinderella baby.
Ken looked happy in his tunic and gray coat, it was a happy moment for the two lovers. Early this year,Cindy's affair of ten years came to an abrupt end and the reason was; Mario was not putting a ring on it. Ken is pretty much aware of that and he is leaving nothing to chance.
Single in February, and in no time hooks Ken and six months later, Cindy is getting a feel of what she hadn't witnessed ten years in her previous relationship. This is coming at the time when South African based socialite, Zari is also experiencing some sort of 'zungulu' with her muscle man, Farouk Sempala.

In a 16 sec vid, Chameleone says; "My property is my property muah muaaaaaaahhh haters go and hang yourselves."
This follows reports that Daniella had left the top star after Annette, a side dish claimed that she was carrying his second baby.
Moze Radio and a fan from Zimbabwe were among the over 8,000 fans that liked the pic the couple shared after clearing the space. Daniella was all smiles. Meanwhile, their son, Abba Marcus Mayanja turned 9 yesterday, the music doctor used his wall to send out a birthday message.
"We have always been grateful to God for his endless blessings upon us.Today is your 9th birthday, which reminds us of how we are blessed with a gifted, loving and caring son like you. We are proud of you, May God guide and protect you as you live to blow countless candles, Happy Birthday!"

Zari's latest tweet seems to suggest the muscle man is sorry for whatever happened and has apologized.
"Everyone will hurt you. You just need to find that special someone who knows how to apologize and make it up to you when they have hurt you. If she falls asleep in your arms, it doesn't mean she's bored. It means she's comfortable. Nyt fam"
Farouk is made up of a calm personality, and it's no surprise that he is the special someone Zari is referring to as you can see, she fell asleep in his chest. This is coming at a time after Farouk received a call from Ivan's camp.
The call lasted about eight minutes purpotedly from Ruth Kalule's lover. All sorts of words, insults, abuses were used, but Farouk kept calm and politely attended to the call. Ruth Kalule is the reason for Farouk-Zari's latest woes.
In the phone call to Farouk, the caller tells him to leave Ruth or else he will have it rough. How much do women pay you to be their 'Gigoli', Do you know how long we've been with Ruth? You don't even have 40 rands and you are here hawking your di@k on facebook.
Empty tins make a lot of noise, Farouk shot back. The caller assured Farouk that should he go to South Africa, they will hunt him down, this was when Farouk politely asked him if he was done so that he does not engage his cell phone anymore, but the caller just kept on abusing the muscle man, who was cool all the way.
Of all the women, you think I can love Ruth, Farouk asked, the caller together with another person (laughing) in the background told him that; You are busy taking selfies of yo weapon and displaying it on facebook for all to see, you pala!, can my wife even bring you to Europe?
If you guys are in the bar, I would suggest you sober up and then call back so that we can talk, Farouk concluded.
The juggling of Europe and rands, the accent, the Gigoli bit let alone the topic of discussion in the phone chat speak volumes. It should be recalled that Farouk is dating Zari, who has been in a relationship of over ten years, so, somewhere some how, someone is not happy. Farouk knows it all and, once in a while, he expects such phone calls anyway.

"I commend the unity among chiefs while electing the Kyabazinga. However, some chiefs are not here, I urge you to unite. I ignored the first elections because there was no quorum. Am here now because the basics have been handled."
"I was informed that the Kyabazinga is well equipped with a vehicle for his use. He needs escorts. I have, therefore, instructed my people to organise two vehicles, front & back."
Ministers, Members of Parliament, representatives from different kingdoms among others were in Busoga to witness history in the making.
On the social scene, we are noticing some rather interesting developments. After carefully looking at his family tree, MC Kats came to learn that he was a royal of sorts, affiliated to the Busoga king, Gabula Nadiope. Model and socialite Doreen Kabareebe who studied from Busoga for her high school education spent a greater part of theday communicating fluently in Lusoga.
The Gyobera singer, Irene Ntale is so amazed with the king's looks as she congratulates the Basoga on this great day.

Following the blows that the Jangu Nkulage singer rained on Isaac Katende, a journalist with Dembe FM, these are other people's views;
Joel Isabirye - Beating up a journalist affects your social capital. It could also land you in jail for quite some time. Celebs also need to cultivate a habit of official communication through press releases. Release a press statement on social media and to the media on the matter and then if you decide to go legal go ahead.
Roni Mulindwa - "Celebs" are human. Cut them some slack! They sweat blood walk miles. Spend what they don't even have to be who they are. Report responsibly!! Else u live with the consequences of what u do to people's lives, careers and families!!

Yesterday was the Sitya Loss press conference at Laftaz Comedy Lounge. All was going well but things went out of hand during the question and answer session.
"But we still have unprofessional people who try to drag us down because of their personal issues, Kasuku asked me for 500,000/-..." as Kenzo was still explaining, he was interrupted by Kasuku who said; "There is nothing personal here, Kenzo, you paid money to Star TV for them not to play Big Eye's music.." "I'm a journalist and I will say what I feel is right," Kasuku added.
Kenzo furiously asked Kasuku if at all he had evidence to that effect. "Do you have evidence, do you have evidence!, Kenzo continued to ask while standing up. The Sitya Loss singer just jumped on to the plastic table (leaving it broken) as he went to rain several blows on Kasuku.
The Dembe FM presenter was beaten severely, he is now nursing head and nose injuries. Chairs and bottles were broken in the melee that lasted several minutes.
Kenzo explains the mixup - In one of his shows, he said that in 2008, I paid money so that Big Eye's music should not be played, but during that time, I was sharing the same bed with Big Eye and we could also put on the same clothes. We just part ways with Big Eye in 2011. I'm a God fearing person and if it's true I paid money for Big Eye's music not to be played, then Iet God be the judge.
Meanwhile, Eddy Sendi, a co-host on Dembe FM's Kasuku live show was busy diverting attention from the issues at hand to asking his followers when they last used SKYPE.

"When a guy gets protective over you I swear that eish right there is dope. I think it's super adorable, intruders get your level, " were Zari's words two days back and now just hours after splitting;
"Stress comes from trying to maintain a positive attitude in the midst of negative people. God didn't give me the spirit of fear & you're not going to give me your spirit of negativity. Mistakes make you wiser, heartbreak makes you stronger, & wrong turns often take you to the right place. It all serves a purpose. Sometimes bad things bring about good change..sometimes little decisions alter the big picture."
Just in case you are not aware, Zari and Farouk are no more. The couple split yesterday and Ruth Kalule, Farouk's other gal is the reason behind their splitting. Zari is now waiting for the right man "This is a blow, I trusted him you know, I thought he could be different but you all men are crap. But I have faith, my guy is out there somewhere, he will come the right time."
Zari dated basket ball player , Isaac Lugudde aka LK4 at the time she was still with Ivan Semwanga, the father of her three sons. She put an LK4 tattoo on her upper thigh just to prove her love for him but things did not work out. She then bounced back to Ivan before hooking the muscle man, Farouk Ssempala. They've been together for 10 months.
Chances are, she will be bouncing back to Ivan now that on September 6, the couple kissed during Chameleone's show in South Africa. It should also be recalled that the Zari White Party is around the corner and Zari needs the funds, so this really left Farouk with limited options but being chucked.
Wednesday, 10 September 2014
One thing led to the other but before they could even settle that, Zari was being confronted by a Ruth Kasule, a 20-year-old who is also in a relationship with Farouk. When tasked to explain about the Ruth Affair, Farouk denied having any relationship with her.
Zari had to place a conference call, so that the three (Zari, Farouk and Ruth) can acquaint themselves with the details. Farouk continued to deny, but Ruth was forced to share Whatsapp messages clearly detailing the dealings between them. In the phone chat, you could hear the muscled man talking as though he had been scrapped off his muscles in a polite manner asking Ruth where, when and how he made a move on her!
It was not long before Ruth's nud# pic started doing rounds on social networks. This did not bother Ruth in anyway, because she said; "What will they gain, and Zari what picture is Farouk giving you about himself exposing women?. He has a daughter and you are both parents..."
After proving beyond reasonable doubt that Farouk had had a flirt with Ruth, she went on to throw in the towel. "This is a blow, I trusted him you know, I thought he could be different but you all men are crap. But I have faith, my guy is out there somewhere, he will come the right time."

His music journey is one that baffles even the top dogs in the music industry, not even Mun G's airtel advert of 'Toidi Luzungu' can apply to him as he explained a few weeks back while in the US;
"gw'a ate munange olaba abayimbi bafe bwebatakozesa jamaican accent bakozesa nigerian kati olwo fe tugwa mu category ki bwetuyimba olunzugu in our own way nga muvuma so nga ate amawanga amaalala gatufuna bulungi nsaba mukireze twenyumireze mukyetulina tuja kuyitawo nze eno nkutula deal everyday kuba kyakute ebyadala..."
Translated as; "Our artists have also resorted to using Jamaican or Nigerian accents, and when I sing using English in my own way, I'm abused yet fans elsewhere in the world do get me well. I'm appealing to all of you to appreciate your own artists, as a country, we will all benefit.
After spending a few months in the US, the Sitya Loss singer Eddie Kenzo was back in Uganda but for a few hours before proceeding to Tanzania. It's where he learnt of his latest award, 'Best New Music Act (Africa)' in the just concluded Afro Australian Music and Movie Awards.
Last week, Eddy Kenzo and Navio were the only Ugandans nominated in the Channel O Africa music video awards 2014. Interestingly, they are both in the same category of 'Most Gifted East'. The others in that category include; Sauti Sol, Diamond and Elani.
I thank you fans for the love and support but don't forget to vote for me in the category of 'Most Gifted East '

A few days back, The Sample Dat singer, Cindy Sanyu, was hanging out with her new found love, Ken Muyiisa who was in the company of his son, Sandton and they were doing justice to 5 litres of white wine.
"Hanging out at the beach with my man and stepson. Some of my best times. What about you?," Cindy asked.
Little did she know what was about to unfold. The responses were not amusing at all. Her fans started off by bashing her for using the word 'stepson'.
"Cindy this guy has not married you yet, so there's no way you can be a step mother from the outside, " One wrote. "Nyabo, don't ever say that word again," another added.
Comments that followed, mostly from female fans seemed to suggest that Cindy used a wrong word.
Hours later, Cindy bounced back saying; "In English, your man's son is called a step son (Google it or look into yo dictionary) and I wrote in English. No disrespect but there can only be one mum and one dad, So calm down people," she concluded.

Katumba Shaffic aka Katsha, popular for his Sushi game has paid over 50 million as his contribution for the One Million show. Chameleone who could not hide his excitement took to his wall, and this is what he said;
"When we said its ONE MAN, ONE NIGHT, ONE SHOW, ONE MILLION, We meant that we are calling the able ones to come and support music Uganda to the fullest! It's Ugandan Pride if you live and love Uganda. Thanks to "PRESIDENT"KATSHA De Bank. Representing South Africa to the fullest!!! $20,000 to the ONE MILLION night. 18th December is the showdown."
Chameleone's show is One Million per head, but Katsha De Bank as he prefers to call himself paid 52 million, the equivalent of 52 tickets (face value is 1 Million) implying that he paid 51 million in excess.
Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander, Andrew Felix Kaweesi and Tito Tong are among the notables confirmed for the December show.

Ivan - My penthouse in Capetown
Ivan Ssemwanga has been forced to again take down his known facebook pages. This follows a pic he got off the internet and claimed it was his latest penthouse.
Being the only man to bring a Lamborghini to the dusty streets of Kampala, what he does or says can easily pass, but this time around, he was busted.
Sharing a downloaded pic of living room ideas with a plasma on his wall, Ivan claimed it was his new penthouse in Capetown attracting several likes, comments and shares in the process.
One of his followers asked him to consider giving the house to the organisers of Big Brother Africa, now that they are busy looking for an alternative house after being hit with a devastating fire.
Ivan is now into hiding. Somehow, this strategy had worked well for him because, he had actually managed to shift the attention from Farouk who is busy feasting on his wife left and right to his long list of 'assets'.
Meanwhile, before that, he had just shared an Escalade 2014 model, and later another posh ride claiming his close buddy had just added that to his fleet, but with the latest developments, no doubt these are all fakes just like it was for the penthouse.

"Growing up and hearing that we're all from Africa and being able to go there and witness it for yourself, to see the people and feel the love it's an awesome feeling," were the words of Christopher Martin on his trip to Uganda.
Martin is no stranger to Uganda but after what happened yesterday, it's not clear if he will be back any time soon. His show now ranks as the worst flopped show compared to Sisqo and Davido shows.
Christopher Martin's music is good and had the promoter done enough to promote the show, it would have been different. While appearing on NTV The Beat with Douglas, Chris Martin told the UG Galz to love him now and not later, because he would have gone back to Jamaica.
On the show, they gave out three tickets, so those tickets plus about 17 other people formed part of the revellers. Chris Martin was last seen at Freedom City on Friday afternoon, he had gone to do a soundcheck.
Just days back, another Jamaican star, Busy Signal, was billed to perform at Water Beach Front in Entebbe on 31.Aug.2014, but the show did not take place and Busy said; "This change was due to circumstances solely in the promoters control and was not contributed to by Busy or Turf Music Entertainment."
In a related development, fast rising star, Maro of the Mubbi Bubbi fame had a well attended show at Mackinnon Suites on the very day Christopher Martin was to perform at Freedom City. Maro will be performing in Jinja today at Crested Crane Hotel.

The comedian died on Thursday after suffering a cardiac arrest. She was 81. She suffered a cadiac arrest on Aug 28, 2014. At the time of her death, she had just filmed a special award show of E!'s Fashion Police.
"If there is a secret to being a comedian, It's just loving what you do," Joan said in 2012. Many Fashion police lovers seem to suggest that the show will not be the same without Joan Rivers.

Cut my hair...back to the short look, Juliana noted on her instagram profile.This is a no go area by many ladies especially those using hair extensions.
Some fans were over heard saying that she actually looks better with short hair. Rocking a 'Never trust a pretty gal' top accessorised with black pants that showed off her curves, Juliana showed off her new look.
Most gals in UG fancy the shoulder-length hair but that is not Juliana's wish after losing her only son, Keron slightly over a month back. This is literally her first interaction with her fans since her son's passing.

This time around, the show was live at Bat Valley. "Uganda loves those who have come and done something and off they go, not those who are busy explaining why they have failed to do certain things..." Bobi who came in a bit late Said. He added that what had been discussed earlier was rubbish.
Bobi went on to explain that we came to this world to change it into a better place, before being interrupted by Eddy Sendi, a top music critic; "We cannot change nature!"
"This forum is for the betterment of music, and I will prefer to stick to issues that are developmental other than Katto Lubwama belittling me."
This was when Katto came out of his shell;
"No no no no I know a good artist and a pretender, now if we are talking about artists who inspire others musically and not economically, you are not among them, and here Iam telling you the truth and all you say is that I'm belittling you."
The show was forced to be switched off as Kato had now started exchanging bitter words with Bobi Wine's fans who were equally telling him off.
I'm the best in my family and yet I had the worst voice, but today, I'm even more popular than Kato Lubwama's best, Eddie Yawe. Matters were made worse when Kato Lubwama said that even Nubian Lee, was better than Bobi Wine, this resulted in more bitter exchanges, mostly from the audience. Kato ended up using words like Nyoxx, forcing the show to go off air.

Sunday evening was hot with Bebe Cool's fans sending a tirade of abuse to Jazz maestro, Tshaka Mayanja, aka Winston.
It all started with this post as Tshaka revealed that the Tusker Project Fame 2 winner, Esther Nabaasa aka Estah was the song writer of Love You Every Day.
"Finally, I got round to watching Bebe Cool's new video, for the song 'Love You'. I kinda recognized the writing, phrasing and composition style of this song but wasn't very certain. As soon as I was told Michael Fingaz was the producer, I knew straight away who the songwriter was. Project Fame winner Estah. She can craft a song that girl, she really can."
This did not go down well with Bebe who came roaring like a hungry lion, saying that he wrote half that song;
"Just to correct Shaka Mayanja of Jazz Safari, if u want to know who wrote love u every day, at your age, u should not nose around since u know who sang it and u have his number, call him and ask otherwise stop misleading people by under looking BEBECOOL. Micheal Fingers wrote half the song and I did half and mark u, u are in for surprises if u thought u knew me well."
"That shows how bad hearted Ugandans can be. Instead of appreciating an artist, they will look for things just to bring them down. Let's say Estah wrote Love You Everyday, if she sang it would you have cared about it or loved it? Grow Up love you everyday."
Tshaka- Well done Bebe. It's a good song, no matter who wrote it. I wasn't knocking you at all or bringing you down. Far from it. If you wrote the song, well done. About bringing you down, you're backing the wrong tree. I ain't.
Bebe Cool - Winston, next time if u want to know , Pliz call me. if u wanted to give yo comment genuinely, u would have talked about the producer of the video n the musician who sang the song. That is the best way to show appreciation.
Tshaka - Bebe Cool, my post is about the song and its quality. All good. Next time I'll post about the video. I really don't see any harm in crediting the songwriters, is there?

The Bedroom Bully singer, Busy Signal real name, Glendale Gosha Gordon has cancelled his Ugandan show that was slated to take place at the Waterfront Beach in Entebbe. A new date will be communicated. Using his verified facebook profile, Busy Signal said;
"This change was due to circumstances solely in the promoters control and was not contributed to by Busy or Turf Music Entertainment."
On the other hand, Suudiman, the booking agent or the promoter behind the show says that Busy has over shs 200m on his account and he was ready to pay more money, but the situation was beyond him. Suudiman is yet to hold a press conference after holding separate talks with sponsors of the show.
Some of the fans had already paid using Payway Machines (which do not give change), so they, would love to hear from the promoter on whether or not they will get their money back or keep the receipts till the next show date.
"It is with disappointment that these events are postponed because Busy Signal was looking forward to performing for his fans in Kenyan and Uganda, " he concluded.

First things first, Samira Tumi seems to be the most beautiful thing that has happened to brothers Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel and Emmanuel Mayanja, formerly AK47, now Akay.
AK47 is not a happy man on learning that he will not end up together with Samira as he explains.
"Weasel came to me asking for Samira to be featured in one of his videos, which was okay with me. Unfortunately, around the end of last year, they became so close. I was hurt though I thought, Samira would come back given the love I had for her. The next thing I heard was that they were staying together in Makindye, Kizungu zone. Some sources say she is pregnant, it is then that I gave up..."
Emmanuel Mayanja adds that they actually did not inform him about the ceremony that saw Chameleone, Moze Radio plus others going to meet Samira's parents in Jinja. On learning about it, I sent them this message; (AK 47 Blesses Weasel and Samira).
Weasel who is currently in London wondered how AK47 could go on claiming that he took his girlfriend. "All he told me was that they were just friends and not lovers.."
In spite of all that, my heart is with Samira, because with her, I have peace at heart,Weasel concluded.
Chameleone Speaks Out;
Their elder brother, Jose Chameleone says that AK47 has not approached him on the matter but if at all their any issues, then our parents are in the best position to address this rather sensitive issues. Chameleone also expressed shock as to why AK47 was interested in Samira and yet he has other girl friends.
I went to Jinja because Weasel asked me to, besides, he had introduced Samira to me something that AK47 has never done, Chameleone concluded.

Bebe Cool and Irene Ntale were slated to perform but that was not possible as they were at different shows elsewhere. Bebe was in Dubai while Irene Ntale was in the UK where she took off time to appear on BBC's Focus on Africa programme.

It's All White
"To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others." Those were Zari's words as she shared shots of her white lingerie and cream 'beads' rolling all the way...!
Could this be part of her White Party campaign, may be not, but now that the annual party is around the corner who knows. "This is my Queendom, woke up like this, flawless," she concluded.
Looks like her fans will be treated to more of her body than the new model rides she used to flaunt back in the days. White will be the dresscode for her white party that will be held on December 18, 2014 at Guvnor. For more of the white clothing trend and lingerie, you can check out Zari Jewels at Garden City basement on Yusuf Lule road.

Rema Namakula (23) is fit to burst and in under four months, she will be a mother. She was last spotted at Freedom City during the Physically Fit concert. The Sitya Loss singer, Eddy Kenzo is top on the list as the baby daddy though Rema is tight lipped.
Talking to snoops at Freedom City, Rema revealed that it was agreed between her and the baby daddy not to disclose his identity to the public.
Eddy Kenzo who is currently in the US but will be here for his Sitya Loss concert in September has a daughter with his ex Tracy Nabatanzi. It should be recalled that during his Kamunguluze Concert last year, he introduced Tracy as the mother of his daughter and also called Rema on stage.
The Jambole singer told his mom that Rema was his very good friend.

Moze Radio and Weasel are currently on tour in the UK together with the local drama stars, The Ebonies. Back at home, Team No Sleep, the group that was formed after the Goodlyfe Crew split a few months back, is indeed failing to get some sleep.
One of their very own, producer Bushingtone spent yesterday night in the dock on allegations of breaking into Neverland in Makindye with an intent to take a laptop which had the duo's yet to be released music. Samira alerted the police right away that went after the producer.
Chagga Yagga, who happens to be the current manager of Radio and Weasel also confirmed the arrest of Jeff Kiwa who is right now helping police with the investigations.
While at Kibuye police station, members from the different camps were trying to engage in another fight. Meanwhile, fans loyal to Radio and Weasel are like what goes around comes around, you made Radio's mom shed tears after being slapped by cops, this is your time to pay.
But inspite of all these developments, Weasel is a happy man now that they did not assault his pregnant Samira in any way.

In one of Huddah's response to Vera's boob job, she wrote: "How gals with no boobs take pics Lol and trust me, money ain't a problem they can be bought but we choose not to!"

Previous: Leilla Kayondo's Dad Very Sick
Monday, 18 August 2014
Updated - Businessman Sully K Mbuga, also Leila Kayondo's better half has been slapped with a travel ban. It's in relation to outstanding tax obligations amounting to shillings 219,155,869/- million which is the equivalent of US$ 84,290/-.
According to the letter dated 15 Aug 2014 addressed to the Director Citizenship and Immigration Control, SK Mbuga is not allowed to leave the country unless the above amount is fully settled. The amount continues to attract interest for as long as it remains outstanding.
A few days back, bailiffs went to Mbugga's residence to try and attach at least two of his Hummer vehicles to compel him clear the outstanding amount but they were denied access.
The bailiffs came back later after reinforcing, but the rides had been relocated to some un known destination. Uganda Revenue Authority is now pursuing a travel ban to the South Africa based businessman.
Mbuga says that he does not own any businesses in Uganda and wonders why URA is demanding such an amount from him. According to the Income Tax Act, any resident taxpayer has to declare each year of income as stipulated by Section 9 of the Income Tax Act. Additionally, a resident person is supposed to file returns for every year of income.
“If the income arose as a result of activities outside Uganda, such a person has to declare here and in the other country so that they can benefit from foreign tax credits,” Waiswa explained, adding that the foreign tax credits would reduce one’s tax liability.

Entrance fee was 20K for the general happiness, 50K VIP and 1.5m for platinum, but there were just a handful of revellers.
Chameleone was supposed to perform but he snubbed the show. He was at Freedom City on Entebbe road, where the crowd was getting physically fit with sounds of Big Eye in his very first concert which was massively attended.

South African based flaunting queen, Zari Hassan was able to chat up with her ex-hubby Ivan Semwanga at their son's birthday bash. Pinto is their first born, he turned 11 on Aug 07, 2014.
He demanded for a slumber party also known as a sleepover party, his parents did not disappoint, they did just that. The three-day-party ended on Saturday.
''Being in a limo and drinking wine,'' Pinto noted on his instagram while communicating to his other friends who could not make it for the bash.
Rumours were spreading like a wild fire that she had returned to Ivan, but Zari was quick to issue a statement to dispel any rumours about her reuniting with Ivan; "We are very ok and happy. Clearly where does it state I broke up with Farouk coz he is broke or coz of the White Party..... We are ok and very much together."
"As for Ivan, he has every right to attend any of his kids functions, soccer games, B-Day parties, school events you name it, he has a right to be there. Our relationship differences does not make any of us less of parents. We still execute our duties as parents like expected."
Meanwhile, Farouk is not happy with this development. He has even gone into facebook hibernation, just to confirm that all is not well.
The birthday boy who uses statements like 'It's my dad's lamborghini, but it's my mom who drives it' gave the parents time to catch up on a few things as he went playing with his peer group.

Weasel is dating the same girl his brother dated some time back, but the amazing thing is, Akay, formerly AK47 is not hurting and is all okay with the whole arrangement, he has actually blessed them.
"Tonight I want to congratulate my brother Weasel and Samira for both having the confidence to overlook each other's past and choose to move on with their future responsibly." Now that is a very bold and brave statement coming from an ex and a brother at that.
He adds: "I am so happy for you Weasel and I want to wish you a happy future with your soon to be wife Samira...God Bless You!!" It's not clear why the Team No Sleep member, AKay, was not part of the team that went to Jinja.
Pallaso adds his voice; "Congratulations to Weasel Manizo on your recent achievement !!! It takes a man to man up and go respectfully to his lovers parents and tell them he got big plans.."
Weasel was yesterday meeting Samira's parents in Jinja to forge a way forward. Samira is five months pregnant.
Friday, 15 August 2014
It all went down yesterday and it's official, Samira is officially Weasel's and within no time, they will be finalizing with the other nuptials. Chameleone and Moze Radio were among those who went to Jinja.
Samira's little baby bump was visible under her red floor length dress (Gomesi). She was and still is excited that Weasel was able to meet her aunt and also hint on a nearby date for the introduction ceremony.
Weasel could not hide his excitement after being given the green light. Moze Radio seems to say: "Mwana Samira is all your's"

Samira Tumi is the video vixen in the Tukikole Neera video and she is around five months pregnant. Weasel is the baby daddy. Inset is Weasel and Samira kissing in the Neera video. Weasel was on Thursday afternoon meeting Samira's Aunt in Jinja at a function that is normally held before the introduction ceremony, locally known as (Okukyala).
In the pic, Weasel was so humbled as Moze Radio and colleague stood with swagg. AK47's ex, Samira, has even updated her relationship status on facebook to reflect ''In a relationship" with Weasel. It should be noted at this point that AK47 and Samira had both moved on.
Weasel's elder brother, Humphrey, has gone ahead to congratulate him on this milestone. The Bomboclut singer has had many babes, had many kids to that but none of the baby mama's had got close to this, so many are branding Samira as the winner.
On their way to Jinja, songs like Can't let you go and Neera were being played back to back in his navy blue ML.

Juliana has warned of fraudsters who are duping the public asking for money, and also taking advantage of Keron's death to extort money from unsuspecting individuals.
Just a few weeks back, we told of how Capital FM's Flavia Tumusiime facebook account got verified (has a blue badge). Take note, it's the only individual account after President Museveni.
Juliana has been warning her fans and she continues to do so, but the fake network seems to be too large for her to handle. The solution to this Juliana is for your account to be verified and we trust Mark Zuckerbeg is considering this very seriously. However, matters were made worse when her only son, Keron passed on, the fraudsters were having a field day as Juliana explains.
"You all know that these fake Facebook accounts are still out there. Now until the authorities can come out in a big way n help with the problem of Internet fraud, there's not much we can do."
"I've done everything I can in my power. You people who are creating these fake accounts in my name, even using My son Keron's passing to con people, You stink, You are evil and you are disgusting."
"You will not get away with this. But even those who send these idiots money, Don't be so gullible. I've been warning you for so long. So if you send your money to these con men, you do so at your own risk. Peace and love."
In relation to fake facebook accounts, NTV Be My Date show has suffered similar problems, when you google NTV Be My Date, it's the fake account that shows up making matters worse for Anita Fabiola.

A list of 100 celebrities was last Friday released by New Vision and comedian Anne Kansiime was ranked number one on the list followed by Angella Katatumba. Bebe Cool, Chameleone and Juliana followed in that order.
The list mainly comprised of musicians, radio and TV presenters. socialites, sportsmen and women, comedians among others.
Responding to one publication that had expressed shock over Chameleone being beaten by Anne, the Wale Wale singer said; "Celebrity and popular are two different things."
Again, Chameleone was asked about his rank internationally, now that Eddy Kenzo was proving to be a force to reckon, he said that he was not sure about that but would comment after a team that is investigating that development gets back to him, otherwise, when it comes to numbers, he is no longer number one but numberless.
Chameleone will be live at serena Hotel on December 18, 2014 and the amount to access Serena that night will be 1,000,000/- shillings per head.

Moze Radio and Weasel were over the weekend thrilling fans in Dubai. The dynamic duo was performing live at Mansion Club, Melia Hotel Bur Dubai.
They did most of their latest hits ranging from Neera, Ntunga plus old hits like Bread and Butter, Amaaso and Magnetic. Queen dancers from Hungary plus UAE based East African artists were backing them up. Bebe Cool will be in the same venue on 23.Aug.2014.
The dynamic duo relieved Jeff Kiwa of his duty as their manager after noticing some financial discrepancies, but now, they are the happiest as Weasel reveals;
"Goodlyfe is goodlyfe no one can change it...but u don't know how sweet lyfe we live since we fired those rats out of our cupboards.....no need for traps any mo...money straight to de?"
He later added, that there are no more third parties involved when it comes to matters of money. So If you got to chop their money, this looks like the best time of their career.

Alpha, Beata and Bebe on their knees thanking fans
Bebe Cool was yesterday celebrating 20 years of music in a show dubbed Best of Bebe Cool. It was live on NTV from 8:30pm for at least 30 minutes and later at 10:30pm during the Koona Ne NTV show by Miles Rwamiti.
The show had about 1,400 revellers, but the VVIP section was full. As you may be aware, a table in the VVIP section was going for a cool 5 million shillings, so the game has changed. This has been branded as the best show in the year so far. Bebe Cool kicked off the show at 8:30pm and by midnight, he wrapped the show with Love You Everyday.
There were no curtain raisers, it was only Bebe, guitarist Myco Ouma and Annette Nandujja that performed. Notable among the guests were Sudhir Ruparelia, Gordon Wavamuno. He thanked them in a special way, his version of James Brown I Feel Good.
Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena speaks out; "Last night was off the hook, I must say am proud of my husband. Whoever attended the show knows what am talking about, I was super excited no wonder I was forced to step on stage & shake a lil bit. My highlight of the night was when my babies stepped on stage and surprised their dad with a bouquet of flowers, he was so emotional."
"Thanks to everyone who attended the show and sorry for those who came in late when the tickets were sold out, now let's meet in Mukono, " Zuena concluded.
Renown music critic and reggae singer, Jenkins Mukasa had this to say; "It was a well produced show and Bebe did his best. The band was tight and Michael Ouma + Nanduja did just great. All in all, it's the best Bebe cool show I have watched."

It's one thing to drive a Tundra, but another to drive a 2014 model.
Businessman, Desh Kananura, is proud to be among the few Ugandans cruising a model that is just months old. The 5.7L pick-up truck that is about $48,000 before taxes is so huge that it's glove compartment alone can have as many as 19 tennis balls.
The Panamera Bar boss also has a Rolls Royce, the only one in the country at the moment, and just recently, he converted his orange Audi Q7 into a pick-up but one of his drivers sped off with it to a ditch. He is not in a hurry to repair it though.
He is one wealthy person who has been kind enough to share his story of where he has come from, what he has done to even be able to afford a 2014 model which will be affordable to an average Ugandan in 2024.
Using his facebook profile, Desh told of how he tried out several businesses including the bridal car business but failed miserably, sold second hand clothes commonly known as Mivumba, but was fleeced by business associates, Imported Hummers for footballers in the UK, but lost everything.
‘Swim or sink’, ‘Never Give Up’ and prayer are Desh Kananura’s guiding lines that he followed while doing ‘kyeyo’ in the UK. "I work best under pressure, buying cars from scrap yards fixing them and selling them..", so if you are looking up to him, that has been part of his journey, and he adds, I'm not yet there.
"I sometimes have the Chinese belief that there is no such a thing as luck, blessed are they that believe in the Lord that's where am anchored, prayer changes a lot, I beg you to trust me, I'm a living testimony."

"The New Vision paper just ranked me Uganda's No.1 celebrity. Thank you my Ninja's," Anne Kansiime wrote on her wall on learning that she was ranked the top celebrity. The celeb list by New Vision is for the period starting May last year to June this year.
The list excludes businessmen like Sudhir Ruparelia, Patrick Bitature. Politicians were also not included this time around. The celebrities were picked from music, TV, movies, sports, books and modeling. The list does not take into account how much money one has, facebook and Twitter likes played a role.
Angella Katatumba beats any Ugandan in terms of facebook likes, she has over 300,000 likes though Mark Zuckerberg is yet to verify her account. This could be one of the reasons she takes up the second spot.
Urban TV's Mary Luswata is quickly making her way to the top ten, the next time this list is updated, she could be in the top 5 now that mentions in print, TV or radio count for this particular list not forgetting that New Vision has all of them.
According to the list, Iryn Namubiru was just about to join the likes of Sheebah Karungi, Bad Black and Ragga Dee who are in the next 50.

Revellers will have to consider putting aside their night concert outfits on the 23.Aug.2014 when Navio will be performing live at Kati Kati starting 10am to 8pm.
The No Turning Back singer says it will be the biggest day time rap show ever. Bebe Cool, Keko, Irene Ntale, Sheebah, Coco Finger, and Chameleone among others will perform alongside the hip-hop rapper. The event is sponsored by Pepsi and Uganda Telecom.
According to the new KCCA regulations for night events, all shows should end by midnight. This leaves the revellers yearning for more and also artistes performing few songs taking curtain raisers into consideration. Day time events are the way forward.

Our local celebs have been showcasing one thing or the other lately, if it's not their nud# bodies, it's baby bumps, flat tummies, booties, rides and so on, but Chameleone is doing it differently and that is by handling a wad of cash.
The Wale Wale singer was a few days spotted at Serena Hotel with Shs 80 million after selling 80 tickets for his December 18 One Million Show. When Chameleone announced his concert date and price, Bebe Cool released posters for his Best of Bebe Cool show indicating packages way higher than Chameleone's.
For example, he has the VIP going for 3 million, the xTRa Large going for 5 million and the general happiness which is 50,000, but these could change hours before the concert. Payment at the entrance will be 100,000/- according to insider sources, so for affordable tickets, better to try your luck today.
Chameleon's is a single payment plan, so there's no need to rush as the price is strictly one million, no more no less.

Huddah Monroe represented Kenya in last year's version of Big Brother Africa, she was evicted in the very first week along side our Charlie Denzel. Vera Sidika is likely to be Kenya's representative for this year's Big Brother reality game that kicks off on September 7, 2014.
Vera came back from Nigeria recently where she was on holiday with her loaded boy friend, and for the record, she just bleached and also had a boob job. Now, Huddah Monroe is currently in Nigeria busy flaunting her curves and somehow, Sidika is concerned.
The two socialites have always been at each other's throats, though they had taken a long break, however, it looks like they are now back at it. Vera attacked first on getting info from her pries.
"Damn right I got into some gossip. Yes. Bit** always lie about one thing it two!!! FYI; these are bbm messages and chose to keep my friend anonymous and not show dp cz I honestly don't want to involve.
Well. She's the FACE OF CAMPARI LIke really??? Campari really? Damn atleast lie about being face of summit beer by Keroche breweries a local company that nobody would bother to google that sh!t! you own a boutique!?? Enheeee! You forgot to mention you also own a "REAL ESTATE" company that doesn't have a website neither a physical address coz honestly I'm interested in properties!! They say you look broke cz damn B!tch claims she own all these yet even her hair looks like the perfect spot for chicken to lay eggs! While you were struggling with braids for two years straight to save up for two lace wigs that don finish. Yet still pointing fingers at the Queen of weaves. You just learnt this the other day! Sit yo azz down"
Huddah shoots back:
"One obsessed Bi_-h always attacks me when I am out of my Country! Jealousy and envy! All my fans want to know what's up with yesterday's story! I am not in my country so I can't do anything or say anything at the moment! But my story is very brief and clear with picture evidence! Just know there are haters and haters will do anything to make you look bad! Your time is very limited! Your obsession with me needs to stop!!!!!.."
After driving her point home, Vera Sidika apologized.
"Sometimes people haven't apologized because they are ashamed, forgive them anyway. Forgiveness unblocks your blessings, I forgive you. It's only human to react when someone pisses you especially when you try to hush it in silence and they don't wanna listen. I'm not perfect. Nobody is perfect. This is not me at all, but hey, I forgive you.

+Meddie Ssentongo is Bad Black's ex while Ivan Ssemwanga is Zari's ex.
These two have made headlines for being comfortably well off. Ivan has a chain of schools in South Africa while Meddie is linked to Bad Black who is currently serving a jail term in the shs 11bn case.
Like the saying goes, 'Birds of a feather flock together', so the two loaded fellas were at Munyonyo Resort cooling off. Meddie is still battling with a court case in which David Greenhalgh wants his property attached. On the hand, Ivan is getting to terms with a muscled man, Farouk Sempala, who is dating the mother of his three sons.
They both love posh cars. Meddie's cars are no longer seen these days but just last month, he came to the commercial court in a silver Mercedes Benz-AMG. The only man with a Lamborghini in Kampala is Ivan Ssemwanga. He also adds a Hummer, Range Rover Sport among others.
They are philanthropists - Meddie has on several occasions donated to charity while Ivan not once, not twice has donated millions of shillings to the Uganda Cranes football team.

Princess Ruth Komuntale shows off her flat tummy in denim shorts and a leopard print top which was way above her innie belly button.
One close pal who felt skinny jeans weren't working for her was forced to ask Ruth for the flat-belly tricks, which she gladly shared ; "Do sit ups and cardio everyday or at least 4 times a week..eat as clean as possible too."
Short of that, you could try eating a snack that contains protein between 3pm and 4pm, chew food until it's like apple sauce in your mouth, and, laughing is the best thing for your abs, so going for comedy nights could indirectly help you get that flat tummy.
The flat tummy aside, the Princess looked stunning and comments that followed were simply confirming excatly that. Pretty and cute, fabulous, so romantic and so on were the key words in the comments.

It's a case of ex-flames avoiding each other. Tonight, Ivan Semwanga will be among the revellers gracing the Versace night at Club Venom. The dress code is world class labels. On Wednesday, Ivan was spotted at Club Venom on a serious hunt for hot babes.
When the news got to Zari that her ex, Ivan was around, she did not wait but get onto the next flight to SA, of course to avoid drama. Somehow, drama follows Zari wherever she goes and it was not long when an airport security screener tried taking $1,200 from her bag without permission as she narrates.
"The security lady at the desk figitated inside my hand bag and removed my jewelry and make up kit. She tried to distract me by asking me to open the kit while she folded $1200 from my inside zip pocket of the handbag. She folded the money and tried to push it inside her jacket sleeve around the wrist."
"I suspected what she was about to do the minute she tried distracting me by opening my make up kit. As the confrontation began, the guy officer next to us asked me not to cause a scene which to me was like asking me to 'get loud ' yep that's what I did."
"Let me get this str8 you're 'searching' for weapons but end up pick pocketing me and ask me not to cause a scene? Sorry am not dumb, am too fast & smart for that crap."
That is Zari for you!

Socialite Priscilla Ray is now competing with the likes of Huggies, Pampers and so on in the baby disposable diapers business. The socialite is currently on a business trip in Madagascar where she is finalizing with the Wellness Funky Pants deal.

Unlike her colleagues who are all pursuing the same line of business, clothes, the ex-model has done it a little differently.
The next time you hit a gigantic store near you and the shelves have been stuffed with Wellness diapers, then you know it's Priscilla at work, way to go gal!

A few weeks back, Farouk's crown jewels were on display for all to see after leaking online. It was too much for him that he had to fly down South to cool off. The new lovers (Zari and Farouk) are now back in town and preparations for the Zari All White Party slated for December are in top gear.
However, as we were still getting to terms with nud# pics doing rounds from various angles, another set of pics for a London based fashionista have leaked. She is suspected to have leaked Farouk's pics that went viral, so is this a revenge of sorts? In the pics, the fashionista is in a hot pink 2 piece set pulled to the sides...
Monic is now attributing the blame on Zari and Farouk being behind the allegedly leaked pics, but when this got to Zari, the mom of three did not have kind words.
"Some 45yr old woman had her nud# pics leaked and came back to blame some pple. Did I ask you to undress, did I take those pics, was I present during your photoshoot? "
"If I ever have my nudes leaked in anyway, I will be the person to blame coz I will be the person responsible for everything. When other pples' pics leak, your the 1st ones to comment. When yours do, you switch the blame. So madam, Take full responsibility, no one undressed you."
The fashionista's boyfriend has been very supportive to his girl friend; "Thanks for the support to everyone and stand by ma woman....Zari is just a lost sheep looking for Sheperd in a lion's den."

He first released Moyo Wangu, a collaboration song with Edith K which he dedicated to his Swahili fans. The song has a bit of Kinyarwanda, Luganda, English and of course Swahili.
Bebe has now released 'Love You Everyday' which is off his forthcoming Go Mama album. The video was doing rounds on Channel O and MTV base even before being launched in Uganda. Bebe Cool's latest hit was produced by Nigeria's renowned video director, Clarence Peters.
The audio for Love You Everyday was produced by Uganda's Michael Fingers of Fenon Records. Bebe Cool's fans and artists like Maurice Kirya are loving the song already and Bebe Cool too is pretty excited, he says: "Love You Everyday. Haaaaaaaaa!!!! More is coming soon. 8TH Serena Hotel, 9TH Mukono Satellite Beach,17TH Gaba Beach."
One fan wrote: "You proved the haters wrong...now they have nothing to say but to stare at you with envy. This is the Bebe Cool we have been missing and we need more of such tracks. Sir, this track shows that you have the potential to do anything on the international scene. You have rich talent. I am a diehard fan of yours."

18-Dec-2014 - Arab Money Party VS. All White Ciroc Party
It's only July, but the month of December seems to be all booked. The Arab Money party by socialites, Sue Ochola and Judith Heard, is being held on the same day with Zari's All White Ciroc Party.
The two parties were last year held one week apart in the same venue. Zari's White party was the first to be held at Golf Course Roof Top and a week later, it was the Arab Money party. This year, it's all different.
When Zari and Ivan fell out, it was rumoured that the White Party won't take place now that it was Ivan bank rolling it, but Zari was quick to defend it "The Zari All White Party'' is a Zari brand and not a Zari & Ivan thing...."
Well, like both parties say, mark the date to see which socialite camp splashes more money...!

Former HB Toxic member, Helen Lukoma and the Ghetto gladiator, Bobi Wine are doing final touches to a new movie titled Situka.
The 90-minute-movie is about the ghetto youth being involved in activities around their communities as Bobi Wine explains;
"I have made my mark on the music industry, it's time for me to make my mark on the movie industry too. In this feature film, we are trying to encourage the ghetto youth to be proactive and be involved in the daily governance and decision making of their communities."
"You're not too young to take charge and be the instrument of change. You want change, be the change, period! It's running 90mins, it's called Situka and it's coming soon."
The film is a must watch at least based on the trailer and the shots from the movie.
Meanwhile, Helen has resorted to local herbs commonly known as 'Omulondo to boost her prowess. It's nine months since Helen celebrated her birthday and her demands were clear on that night, "Best party ever, am grown I need a baby lol," were her words, now with Omulondo in place, the House of Lukoma owner's tummy might gain some weight in weeks to come.

Gorgeous socialite, Zari Hassan is back in town doing what she does best-partying. Zari was over the weekend spotted in the company of her new lover, Farouk Sempala at Protea Hotel. They seemed to be having a quiet evening by themselves.
The two lovers were cruising in Zari's black Chrysler. Zari flew into the country just in time for Eid. Close pals are wishing they could have twins by around early 2015, a period long enough to show off fruits of their labour.
Zari's Ex, Ivan Ssemwanga was not able to travel to Uganda for Keron's burial, but he sent Shs 8,000,000/- to Juliana Kanyomozi as condolence fees.

Flavia Tumusiime Verified on Facebook
Celebrities, journalists, Government officials plus other popular brands will have a blue badge next to their facebook profile. This makes it very difficult for would-be scammers to fleece people like it has been the case with Juliana and other celebs.
TV Host, Channel O VJ, 91.3 Capital FM radio host, Flavia Tumusiime is the second Ugandan after President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to have her facebook profile verified.
The blue badge helps to eliminate all the confusion that could come up as a result of people trying to take advantage of a celebrity or brand and in some instances extorting money. A fake Juliana facebook account was created, and, the person was asking for money from the public until the diva came up to clear the space.
That is just as far as facebook verifications for individuals are concerned. Flavia is the first Ugandan VJ on Channel O, first Ugandan to co-host the Big Brother Africa Reality show, and now, the first celebrity to have her account verified. Otherwise, in June, Radio and Weasel's Twitter account was also verified.
The thing with verification of social network accounts is that not all authentic accounts are verified. Flavia's account of only 32,000 followers has been verified while Bebe Cool's account of 200,000 plus followers and Angella Katatumba of 300,000 plus followers are yet to be verified.
MTN Uganda and Airtel Uganda are some of the Ugandan brands verified by facebook.

"On Sunday morning our beloved Keron went to be with the Lord after battling valiantly but ultimately unsuccessfully for his life at the Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi. We have been overwhelmed by the love, prayers and support we have received and continued to receive from friends, fans and family."
"We ask that you keep us in your thoughts and prayers but also allow us some privacy in this difficult time to mourn our terrible loss. A funeral programme will be announced in due course. For messages of support, kindly contact: Eddy Ndawula (+256712942418) or Paul Kaganzi (+256772316145) We thank you all."
Keron's body will be in the country tonight at 7:00pm. Juliana is right when she asks for privacy because some people were taking advantage of the situation to extort money from unsuspecting individuals, others made it worse by giving the impression that it was Juliana who had passed on.

Death is part of life, but it's only fair for your child to bury you. Juliana Kanyomozi is known as Uganda's favorite female artist and East Africa's best because of her role as a Tusker Project Fame judge. Juliana lost her only son, Keron, on Sunday, 20.July.2014. The 11-year-old was at school when he got an asthma attack.
He was later rushed to AgaKhan Hospital in Nairobi, but unfortunately, Keron did not make it. Earlier reports had indicated that the body will be in Kampala tonight, but that program has since changed.
"On behalf of Amon, Juliana and the committee. I wish to inform you of the following; The funeral service will take place on Friday morning at 9am, All Saints cathedral and thereafter burial at Mattuga, Kiryagonja at 2pm. There will be two days of mourning at the residence of Mr Misusera Kabugo in Kawuku on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Discard all previous announcements."
"Keron will be escorted by his parents from Nairobi tomorrow (Jul 22) evening aboard Kenya airways. THIS IS THE FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT concerning burial dates. RIP KERON," Roger Mugisha noted on his wall.
Most of Juliana's fans and friends have changed their profile pictures to Keron's as a way of paying tribute.
Saturday, 19 July 2014
21.Jul.2014 - Updated: Keron did not make it. He passed on Sunday at 10:25am. My angel has just gone to the world. What was spreading earlier was a rumour. He passed away at 10:25am this (Sunday) morning. He's been such a fighter. Thank you for praying for my lil angel. I will try n be as strong as I possibly can. Rest in peace Keron. Sleep well my son. Till we meet again, " Juliana wrote.
Keron's body will arrive on Monday (21.Jul). There will be a night vigil at Kawuku, Gaba followed by a requiem mass on Tuesday at All Saints Cathedral. He will be buried in Matugga. R.I.P Keron.
19.Jul.2014 - Earlier:
Juliana's son, Keron Raphael Kabugo, is currently admitted at Aga Khan hospital after suffering an asthma attack. The 12-year-old got the attack while at school.
"My Family and I would like to inform my friends and Fans that my little Angel Keron has not been well after suffering a severe asthma attack while at school. He is currently admitted at Aga Khan Hospital Nairobi, and is getting the best medical attention."
The Tusker Project Fame judge asked fans, friends and family to include him in their prayers. "I am by his bedside 24hours. Please join us in Praying for my Little Angel for his quick recovery. Thank You," Juliana communicated through her personal assistant.
Recently, Keron was watching telly with her mom when a video by Juliana was showing on TV, and in the video, a male model was holding Juliana in a manner that forced Keron to pose questions; 'Who is that guy in the video?'.
Explanations by Juliana did not add up without mincing any words, Keron told his mom that he does not like the way the model in the video was touching her. Quick recovery, Keron!

Keron - "I Don't Like The Way He Touches You !"
Juliana Kanyomozi's son, Keron (10) cannot stand the sight of his mom being touched in a certain way. This afternoon, Keron told his mom that he does not like the way the guy in the 'Olibeera Nange' video touches her as she goes on to explain;
"So we are watching tv with Keron n they play 'Olibeera Nange'.. about 2mins into the video he asks with a serious face. "Who's that guy in the video?".. Me: Oh he's a model by profession. We hired him to act in the video. Then he drops the bomb.. "I don't like the way he's touching you". Hoooo trouble!! hahahaha."
In the video, the model assures Juliana that they will be together at all times just like the title of the song suggests. In the same vein, Juliana returns the love as the model plants a hot kiss on the head while the two hold each other tenderly.
"Awwwwwwww... Protective I like. You need to rethink future videos," Fellow Tusker Project Fame judge, Ian Mbugua, commented.
Juliana split with Amon Lukwago the father of her only son several years back. Keron was young then but now, he is old enough to know a bad touch and a good touch.

Details of how Chameleone came up with the idea of the 'One Million Show' have emerged.
Two weeks back, Chameleone was spotted with East Africa's richest man, and number 24 in Africa, Sudhir Ruparelia busy chatting the evening away and the billionaire whose net worth is $1.1Bn as of today gave him a few ideas.
Now that concerts are slowly becoming more of an indoor as opposed to an outdoor affair, many patrons who have otherwise been missing out for different reasons are going to start embracing these shows. Sudhir Ruparelia whose conglomerate is spreading to Rwanda after Crane Bank opened a branch there will be one of the notables on the 'One Man One Night One show' slated for the December 19, 2014.
Chameleone also had a message for any doubting Thomas out there:
"I have never asked or even debated with any business institution how they determine their prices of their commodities. The One man, One Night, One Show, is NOT for anybody below affordance. Honestly, it's for the loyal fans and the crowd that can't come to the other usual venues."
Assuming the billionaire pays for just one person from each of the companies that he owns (taking care of the partners too) the numbers would already be adding up.
Chameleone concluded: "But I'm also very glad it's the doubtful ones debating about it and doing me free advertisement unknowingly."

Eddy Kenzo is on a Sitya Loss tour in the US. Last Friday, he was performing alongside Jamaican dance-hall star DeMarco. They are even thinking of doing a Sitya loss remix, a song that is proving to be Kenzo's best. It would be a great moment to see the I love My Life singer trying out some 'Stamina' strokes.
Kenzo was among the top 20 KORA artistes in Africa for three consecutive weeks. In week 22, he was number 18 and in week 23, he moved up to number 14, in week 24, he was number 12 and now, a top contender for week 25. KORA Awards fans on facebook do the voting.
Kenzo went for the African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) that will be held on Jul 26, 2014 where he is nominated as the 'Best New Comer'. Other Ugandan artistes that were nominated include his better half, Rema Namakula, Bebe Cool, Navio and Irene Ntale.
Meanwhile, Kenzo's 'Nice and Lovely Sitya Loss' concert will be held at Kati Kati on 19.Sep.2014.

Desh 4 Bugatti Veyron
Updated - Desh Kananura - "The bugatti you have just seen is real and it has dubai plates but take time and think would you ship such an expensive car.? I would fly it? So it's not true that there is a bugatti in East Africa. As for my Haters! You only push me to the next level and as Americans say any
We would have noticed this because he first called it a Bugatti Verom...!
Earlier Version - Tycoon Desh Kananura is renowned for his enviable car collection and boasts of a garage including supercars, vintage cars and now the Panamera boss has brought in a Bugatti Veyron, a mid-engined sports car. It's an 8,000 cc litre engine, petrol with a 7-speed transmission. It's designed and developed by the Volkswagen group.
"Bugatti Veyron just landed in Mombasa! Arab money!!! Haters go hate!" Desh noted on his wall while communicating the news. The sports car will be in Kampala on Monday.
It's less than two months when he brought in a Rolls Royce. Back to the Bugatti, only 300 cars have been sold worldwide since inception in 2005.
When not enjoying his other cars that include a Bentley, Maybach or Lincoln among others, the rally driver is often found travelling to Western Uganda using his over 1,000 cc BMW monster bike.

Successful Show It Was !
Black or White, Black-and-White fashion was the dress code for revellers at Desire Luzinda's concert that was held yesterday at Victoria Hall, Serena Hotel Kampala.
Just like Juliana, Desire held her second concert in six years, in the same venue at the same price though of course, Juliana's crowd was way better, but, Desire Luzinda beat her on the number of times she changed. It's no wonder that some music pundits are now referring to the show as a fashion show and not a music show.
Desire showed off her amazing curves in a white long back short front skirt, then a long red split dress clearly showing off her ass-ets followed by a body hugging black and white dress. As if following the theme colours, she put on a black pant and black top accessorised with white lingerie.
It was a charity event with 25% of the proceeds going to Ibanda Babies Home. Moze Radio and Weasel did their Amaaso, Ntunga and later Desire joined them for their collaboration Fitting song, which some say was the best performance by Desire.
Tonix did 'Tukyekole' and 'Sikyetaga', a duet with Desire followed by a gospel song performed by Desire's sisters and her daughter, Michelle Heather.
Her Ex-lovers (Michael Kaddu, Juma Seiko) were among the notables at the event, though Seya took the day home as Desire cat-walked to him for a 'paka-chini' dance as she thanked all those that had made her show a success.
Others who attended include: Prince Wasajja, Capt. Mike Mukula, Ministers Byabagambi and Kibuule and businessman Godfrey Kirumira among others.
Over 8m shillings was realised from the CD auction sales.

Radio and Weasel are the first artistes in Uganda to have their twitter account verified by the online social networking site joining President Museveni on the list of verified personal accounts.
This means that if you are on twitter and looking out for East Africa's dynamic duo, @RadioandWeasel on twitter, then you should be able to see a blue badge, and if not, you had better look out for the right account. The account was verified on Wednesday, Jun 04, 2014.
"Twitter verified us finally, God is great," the 2013 BET nominees tweeted while sharing the good news. This is a good step as Radio and Weasel are some of those personalities whose accounts are prone to impersonation.

I've Seen The Light - Zari
The lady that can't live without hair extensions, Zari, is now too blessed to be stressed. Yesterday, she gave her life to christ and in the above pic, you can see Zari being baptized after putting her faith in Jesus Christ. Zari was raised as a muslim, but yesterday, she became born again.
Since her troubles with ex-hubby, Ivan Ssemwanga, Zari has been expressing her love for Farouk Ssempala and the last citing was a few weeks back at Serena Hotel, Kampala during the Fashion Intro.
After letting off too much as a socialite, Zari has decided that it is time to change. If you've followed her tweets lately, you could easily confuse her for a pastor of sorts.
It's not clear what is behind Zari's new religious findings but what is clear though is that her new boyfriend, Farouk, is a muslim and many thought this could bring out the spark that was missing in the (Zari-Ivan) affair.
This morning she said: "I'm at a point in my life where if it ain't about money, progression or family I ain't into it." So there you go!

Shs105m Debt Case Dismissed!
Bad Black was all smiles yesterday when the high court dismissed a case in which she was required to pay shs 105m to businessman Mpanga. Court ordered that Bad Black should be paid all costs incurred now that she was wrongly sued.
Mpanga rescued Bad Black with a shs105m loan that she used to sort out various legal costs after her bank accounts had been attached. The loan was for one month and it was secured with a Mercedes Benz, UAP 777 W, as collateral security.
When the one month elapsed, the businessman banked the post dated cheque Bad Black had given him but the bank could not honour it after it turned out that Bad Black's accounts had been blocked.
"The fact that Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) did not transfer the alleged car in the names of Mpanga does not mean that Bad Black had changed position after handing over car documents to him, " Justice David Wangutusi noted.
The application was dismissed with costs. Clad in red heels, a pink top and floral pants, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black looked relieved much as she is still serving her four-year-jail term.
Unlike Meddie Ssentongo who is still in court with David Greenhalgh demanding USD3M from him, Bad Black asked for forgiveness from the complainant and once her sentence is done, she might not have any other cases unless otherwise.

We're Not Intimate - Maurice Kirya
Rumors that singer Maurice Kirya and TV personality Flavia Tumusiime are dating have been spreading like wild fire and fueling interest. They were part of the TuskerTwende Kazi team that went to UK last month and while there, Maurice was touchy feely with her something that made many to believe they were an item.
"Well it is not true, even though we are friends who work in the same industry. To set the record straight, there has never been an engagement or an intimate relationship between the two of us! I hope that the false rumors have not affected Flavia and I wish her well," Maurice wrote on his wall.
Flavia is one of Maurice Kirya's regular customers at his Garden city based The Sound Cup.

Greenhalgh Demands Shs 7bn from Meddie
David Greenhalgh and Meddie Ssentongo were in court yesterday. After serving 18 months in prison for the criminal case, Meddie is now faced with a civil lawsuit in which David Greenhalgh wants the defendants property attached because of his closeness to former socialite, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black.
Testifying before the commercial court, Greenhalgh told court that Bad Black had written to him apologizing for having stolen only USD 600,000 which is the equivalent of Ushs 1.5Bn and that the rest should be recovered from Meddie Ssentongo. Greenhalgh now wants USD 3Mn approximately Ushs7.6Bn from Meddie Ssentongo.
Court asked Greenhalgh if he had ever sent or transferred any money to Ssentongo directly, he said NO. Justice Adonyo adjourned the case. Bad Black and Meddie Ssentongo were sentenced 4 years and 18 months respectively for having embezzled USD 4M (Shs 11bn). Bad Black is still serving her sentence while Meddie served his jail term. The Anti-Corruption court did not ask them to refund the money prompting Greenhalgh to go to the commercial court.
Bad Black has since promised to refund her bit and now Greenhalgh is on Meddie's case for the USD 3m. Bad Black was David Greenhalgh's better half and also a minority shareholder in the Daveshan Development company which they jointly owned.

Zari In Town, Farouk on 'Rampage'
Zari is back and this time in a Stabua Natoro's Tujanjawaze style. The two were yesterday spotted at Serena Hotel following the fashion proceedings, but Farouk did not spend any second with his arms off the mom of three.
During the fashion show, Farouk kept on telling Zari how beautiful she was and that she was so special. The couple looked happy throughout the event.
Zari's Easter holiday was cut short when Ivan made plans of coming to Kampala, so to avoid a scene, she got onto the next plane to SA, but exactly after one month, she is back to start from where they stopped with her new found love, Farouk Sempala.
In the past one month, the couple has been in a long distance relationship but, those 'love sanctions' have been lifted at least for now. On the other hand, Ivan and Doreen Komuhangi's affair hangs in balance after it was publicly denounced by the NBS TV star.

Radio and Weasel NOT in Goodlyfe Anymore
Radio and Weasel are yet to make an important announcement this Monday.
No details have been released yet, but considering the fact that speculation about their split has been mounting, the announcement is certainly about their music.
What is clear though is that they are not in the Goodlyfe Crew anymore which is now under new management of Chagga who replaced Jeff Kiwa. Radio and Weasel will use the opportunity to tell the fans who their new manager is.
But some of the fans are speculating that the announcement is for the split of the 'Ntunga' singers, a move that most fans would not support, but, if Brick n Lace who are sisters can split, how about Moze Radio and Weasel...!
In a related development, Chameleone has changed his manager from Sam Mukasa to Robert Mutima of Mutima Entertainment. Talking of splits, Chameleone's young brother, AK47 has also quit Leone Island Crew and moved to The Goodlyfe Crew while Papa Cidy has again joined Leone Islands a group he had once been fired from.
Moze Radio and Weasel broke off from Chameleone's Leone Island Crew to form The Goodlyfe Crew in 2008. They were nominated in the BET awards and now World Music Awards.
Saturday, 17 May 2014
The 22nd edition of the international World Music Awards will be held on May 27, 2014 at the glamorous Monte Carlo Sporting Club in Monaco. The awards event will air on over 180 networks around the world.
Our very own Jose Chameleone has started off his Tubonge Europe Tour 2014 and will tonight be in Oslo, Norway. After his tour, the Tubonge star will wind up at Monte Carlo for the awards. Chameleone is nominated in the categories of 'Best Live Performer' and 'Best Male Artist'.
Other Ugandan nominees include, Moze Radio and Weasel. The show will have top music acts from around the globe. These awards are presented on sales merit plus voting on the internet by the public. The fans who vote and buy the records are the basis of determining the winners.
Each year, a hospital, school or orphanage is put in a place of need courtesy of the World Music Awards and this year, a second orphanage will be built in Haiti.

In March, businessman Patrick Bitature warned the youth on engaging in binary pyramid schemes. Some of those schemes were being promoted with claims that he was a beneficiary, something he was quick to refute.
"This is a get rich quick scheme like a ponzie or pyramids scheme and is simply not sustainable. ....too add, I can't be involved in such short term gains investment opportunities. I once again encourage the youth to look at establishing good standing businesses that will last generations."
"Growing slowly maybe frustrating but wealth creation is a patience game and those who understand it earlier won't regret it." Patrick Bitature, proprietor of Simba Telecom wrote.
On May 9, the day when his refurbished Club Rouge opened to the public, Ronald Muramuzi, 30, also the new owner of The Notice Newspaper was arrested by police following several complaints.
According to Patrick Onyango, the Police spokesperson, Muramuzi got shs1.5m from 375 people with a promise to get them jobs abroad using his internet based firms. At the time, he was using Bob Mugisha as his name. Once he was done with that, he switched to opening up several online companies that have left many in tears after losing the little savings on them.
His trick was 'high returns, minimal risks' which worked and within a short while, numbers had grown. The early ''investors'' got their weekly returns and these are the ones who excitedly spread the word.
A similar scheme was banned in Rwanda leading to a sharp reduction of new entrants here in Uganda and thus causing the scam to implode.

Better Than Ever !!!
"I'm back better than ever..." were her words when she shared the latest pics.
Last Thursday, her ex-Christopher Thomas tweeted about missing Uganda. "I'm missing my home in UG... how yall doin out there?" The comments that followed seemed to point at him missing his Princess, but he was quick to respond with this post: "Hold up nobody said I miss a gal .. please learn how to read."
In March, Chris told off all those who were asking him about Princess Ruth and assured them that they were not getting back any time soon and had better get used to it.
"Stop asking me about Princess Ruth, she is in Uganda so ask her how she is doing or does she not talk to you ,, hmmm I wonder why ... If a person don't talk to you be smart she cares nothing about you... We not getting back together so everyone move on and chill .. If you don't like me delete me its simple... Peace!"
Here is a comparison between her latest look and that of 2013 !!!!!
Tuesday, 13 May 2014
On Saturday, Ivan was showing off his new catch, Doreen Komuhangi, who turned out minutes later to say that she was not engaged to anyone.
This gave Farouk the guts to show off to his rival that their affair is only getting better by the day and also reminding Zari that his intentions and feelings about her are 'Clear'.
"For two years, she was single, no male bothered..now I'm with her and all you say is that I'm showing off, " Farouk wrote after sharing the cozy shot.
Meanwhile, Zari is taking advantage of Beyonce's enraged sister, Solange who beat up Jay Z in the elevator last Monday saying that there is no relationship without problems.
"So Solange attacked Jayz? It cracks me up when people say they want a relationship with no problems and no arguments. Well, stay single because you're dreaming. Jay & B look perfect but surely I know not all that glitters is gold." Zari wrote on her wall.

Frank Gashumba Bitter With the BTA Team
The Buzz Teeniez Awards (BTA) 2014 were held on Saturday. The big boys (Bebe Cool, Bobi Wine and Jose Chameleone) were not any where on the winners list and so was Sheila Gashumba (18) who has been dominating the Teeniez Teen TV show presenter category for the last so many years. This year, she lost it to little known MC Talha.
This rubbed Sheila's dad, Frank Gashumba the wrong way and in his long tirade, we managed to extract these lines.
"It’s not about Sheilah Gashumba, it’s about the credibility of Ugandan Awards." He went on giving a long list of Sheila's achievements overtime.
"We are not grooming Sheilah for the Local market, we are grooming her for International market, we are grooming her to Lead not to be Led by people below her. At her age, she has been invited to different countries. That’s why I always say on Radio and TV that this country is dead. it will take us 50 years to bring it back. How can you doctor awards for teenagers and you have no shame?!"
We dont' buy awards, we work for awards. Respect is not bought, It’s earned, he concluded. Some of his close friends advised him to look at it on a lighter side and instead focus on the bigger things ahead for his daughter.

'I'm Not Engaged to Anyone - Doreen'
Tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga has over the past several days been getting to terms with the mom of his three boys Zari leaving him for a six packed guy, Farouk Sempala. A new report claims the search is finally over. Ivan and Doreen Komuhangi, a news anchor at NBS TV are hooking up.
It's no secret that Ivan and Doreen are close. A friend to Doreen asked her if she was ready to be wife No.3, and her response was; "Do you have a problem with that." But in another post, as the hook up news were spreading like wildfire, Doreen came up with the above post.
"I'm not replacing Zari, I'm not engaged to anyone." Doreen noted on her wall. Ivan's fans were so excited about the development not after what Zari had taken him through, but, it looked like a false alarm. The comment from Doreen has been perceived by some as a person who does not like to make her affair public.
The same source went on to say that the annual 'Zari White Party' for this year hangs in balance as Ivan won't be bank rolling it, instead, it will be the Doreen White Party.
Zari was quick to come to her defence through this post: "The Zari All White Party'' is a Zari brand and not a Zari & Ivan thing, so kindly restrain from tarnishing my brand as it still lives...Thank you."
On top of declaring that there was nothing going on between her and Ivan, Doreen went on to say that white has never been her colour!. For now though, we are watching to see if Farouk will be behind the All White Party and what theme party Ivan will sponsor for his new boo...!

Demarco is in town and his press conference was held today at Club Silk. During the press conference, he was asked whether his song with Peter Miles was popular or known at all in Jamaica, the dance-hall star said that the 'Blessings' songs is not played at any of the Jamaican airwaves.
This prompted another question of who the best Ugandan artist in Jamaica was following several collaborations that include 'Blessings' that he did with Peter Miles, 'Dilemma' by Cindy, Bobi Wine and Mr. G among others, the 'Love My Life' singer said that he does not know.
This left folks in shock. In July last year, Bobi Wine told of how his 'Clean and Out' collabo with Mr. G was a hit and at some time featured among the top fifteen dance-hall songs of the week, that was not all, Bobi Wine flew to Jamaica specifically to shoot the Clean N Out video. He also held several performances while there but this was not enough to get him closer to being known according to DeMarco.
"But when I'm in Uganda, all I seem to hear is Chameleone and Peter Miles,'' DeMarco added. Chameleone also has a collaboration song with Konshens. "All these songs are not played in Jamaica and for them to be played, your artistes are supposed to got to Jamaica and promote them otherwise, they will not be played." DeMarco concluded.

Seanice Leaving Sanyu FM Morning Show, with Patience aka 'Pesh' tipped to replace her.
Seanice Kacungira's last day at the Sanyu FM's breakfast show was this morning. Seanice is one of the longest-serving Sanyu FM breakfast show presenters.
"I really did not want to do one of those long status messages that seem to go nowhere and announce to the whole world that a career spanning over a decade is coming to an end."
"Thank you ... For the messages, tweets, watsapps and phone calls saying best of luck in your future endeavors I receive the blessings and to say that this status is dedicated to you. For allowing me to find my voice.. Especially the critics or as the youth say 'haters.' Yes! You made me stronger and better."
"I owe you a debt of gratitude as well. May you all prosper and realize that I will always be humbled and floored that this skinny lanky girl from Soroti was allowed to be a part of your lives. Wherever you listened. As I do my last radio show tomorrow, Sanyu Fm will always be one of my greatest career love affairs."
Seanice advises her successor to be able to reason, use logic, be ready to tolerate nonsense from Fatboy, but the one important qualification is to have Jesus. She adds that even if the next presenter is not born again, after a few days on the show, they will be born again.
Responses from some of the fans:
"You have made Sanyu FM the best station to listen to in this country & as a fan & friend, am grateful. Wish u success in the next chapter of your life. Aluta Continua."
"Mornings will be different without your calming effect on Fatbouy. Good luck"
"I will never forget the morning u gave James Onen his studio name now' Fatboy' he had stuck to James...,u were amazing Sean all the best."

Chameleone's wife, Daniella Atim Mayanja was last Friday representing her hubby at the Amaaso-Ntunga launch at Hotel Africana, but, what surprised many of her fans was her see-through outfit.
The mom of four rocked an outfit that intentionally showed off the black bra and everything underneath. She was not in the company of her hubby at the time as he was in Tz having different shows.
Daniella is the laid back type of person and rarely hangs out unless when it's really a special event like it was the case last Wednesday when she was celebrating Chameleone's birthday on turning 35.
Otherwise, compared to the other celebrity wives, Daniella is more of a stay at home mom and wearing this is certainly not a big deal to Zuena or Barbie.
Meanwhile, during the launch, she seemed to like the 'Amaaso' song as she was seen joining the rest of the revellers in singing the 'Goodlyfe and Pallaso, Pallaso, Pallaso' line.
Monday, 05 May 2014
Last Saturday was the Kilimanjaro Tanzania Music Awards (KTMA) 2014. Jose Chameleone's 'Tubonge' song was voted the best East African song. The star singer picked up the award himself as he was in TZ for two Tubonge live shows.
"We did it again! at Kilimanjaro Music Awards - Tubonge is the Best East African song, thanks everyone that voted for me," Chamelone tweeted.
Chameleone was on the line up of artistes at the Amaaso concert which had two of his brothers (Weasel and Pallaso) performing, but he could not make it. The singer sent his wife to represent him as noted in his earlier message.
"I wish Weasel and Radio of the Gudlyfe team a good evening at their concert 'Amaaso-Ntunga' at Hotel Africana, not forgetting Pallaso. First Lady Leone Island Music Empire will represent me, enjoy the show."
Saturday, 03 May 2014
The two-in-one Amaaso-Ntunga concert was held yesterday at Hotel Africana. Earlier in the day, Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) officials had stopped the concert, but, they were later cleared after organisers provided the officials with a traffic flow plan plus ensuring that the kitchen and toilet facilities among others were in good condition.
The show was well attended. Irene Ntale, Desire Luzinda, Pallaso, Sheebah Karungi, Iryn Namubiru, Bebe Cool and Bobi Wine were among the curtain raisers. Jose Chameleone did not make it as he was performing in TZ. Bebe Cool did Coccidiosis and then Nkola Byafayo which he dedicated to the Goodlyfe boys.
The dynamic duo came on stage in a loader crane kicking off the show with their hit songs like 'Nakudata' Nyumbani, 'Bread and Butter', Nyambura. Sheebah and Pallaso did their 'Mundongo' song. The duo returned with their 'Magnetic', 'Obudde' before winding up the show with 'Ntunga' and 'Amaaso' in that order.
"A big thank you to all our wonderful fans who made it to Hotel Africana last night amidst all the bad mind that was published all over the media. We really appreciate your support because you brought a meaning to our small humble lives, respect and blessings. Today we are heading to Mukono to do what we do best, see you soon," Moze Radio noted on his wall.

Which is better, Old Music or New Music!
Old is usually better. However, with some of these artists, the reverse is true. They've been around for sometime but looks like the music they are doing now is far better than what they did before. Dance-hall queen, Bella's 'Kikuteyo' is proof that her music is taking a different direction from what it was back then and, yes, it is better. The only thing that hasn't changed though is her 'traditional' dance that keeps her male followers on tenterhooks.
Sheebah Karungi - Everything that Sheebah has touched in the recent past has turned to Gold. 'Twesana', 'Ice Cream', 'Mundongo', 'Mbakwekule (Jordan)' among others are some of Sheebah's latest, but if she continues at this rate, she will be ranked among the best female artistes.
They seem to realize that the new breed of female artistes like; Fille, Irene Ntale, and Zany Brown are a threat to their music space forcing them to up their game.

Chameleone on BBC Focus on Africa Programme
Star singer, Jose Chameleone is back from the UK, but while there, he took time off his busy schedule to chat with the team behind BBC's Focus on Africa programme. Chameleone talked about his music and family.
"Just back from BBC TV and Radio. Setting a greater way forward, 2014 forward is the ultimate goal. We are bound to excel and there will be no turning back, " The dad of five noted.
Before going to the UK, Chameleone was in Beijing China but he proved that he was also good at photography just by the way he took shots of his wife, Daniella Atim Mayanja, the mother of his four children.

Whatever she looked at was Awesome!
This was at the Zzina awards last Thursday at Theatre La Bonita. Amon - dad of singer Juliana Kanyomozi's son, Keron was spotted with his on-and-off girl friend, Liz following proceedings at the award event that saw Radio and Weasel win five awards.
However, in the pic, Amon's babe looked in awe at the way the performers at the Zzina awards did their thing. Amon was composed but the babe was so glued to the performance that not even a vibrating phone was loud enough to divert her attention.
Meanwhile, Juliana's ex has resorted to decorating his body with multiple tattoos.

What Zari Likes About Farouk
Lot's of Zari's followers have been posing all sorts of questions as to what the mom of three likes about Farouk. This was her response:
"I fell in love with him...not sure why or even how. Yes, they've asked me what I see in him, but I smile, look down and say nothing because I don't wan't them to fall in love with him."
That does not kind of explain why Zari could dump the father of her 'three soldiers' to hobnob with six packed Farouk Sempala. This is what caused Zari to fall out of love.
Zari was bored. Having been with Ivan for over 14 years, she had slipped into a comfortable routine which was no longer exciting according to her thus sparking the spontaneous drive in her.
Zari is way older than Ivan, but looks like the older woman-younger man relationship had stopped working anymore. Zari now wants someone way older and that is how Farouk assumes Ivan's place.
Domestic violence is involved. Zari has taken off from Ivan's home not once, not twice for fear of being battered. And now, she is in the hands of the man who says; "In this life, we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love."
Well, Zari's needs and priorities seem to have changed, there is not much that can be done for now.

Ivan now spends more time with pet!
Zari's estranged husband, Ivan Ssemwanga, was this morning feeling down and low so he reached out to his pet that gave him unconditional love. The pet kept him smiling as it curled up on him. Ivan just loves this dog and just as well, it has reciprocated the love now that he spends so much time with it.
"Me and my friend had some time for him after church," Ivan noted on his wall. On the other hand, Zari and Farouk are busy enjoying their long distance love. "Everybody deserves somebody who makes them smile for no reason, It takes a strong man to handle a broken woman. I love you Farouk."
Within no time, Farouk shot back using Lugudde's tone; "And indeed it takes a calm, s3xy, curvy, loving lioness like you to tame an alpha male like me."

I’m Not after Money, But Giving Back to Society
Desire Luzinda ‘25’ has bought a car five weeks to her second concert in six years, and this is making history according to her.
Using her wall, Desire wrote: “Coming from a humble background and working hard everyday…am glad to say that am the first Ugandan musician to buy a new toy 5 weeks ahead of a concert.”
The Equation singer adds: “This should show you that I’m not after money when it comes to my music but giving back to society, so let’s join hands and support Ibanda Babies Home.”
This message left a section of fans confused. Some wondered what this new car had to do with giving back to charity. Tickets at the Desire Luzinda Black and White Affair will be going for 100,000 and 50,000/- and 25% of the proceeds will go to charity.

President Museveni's twitter account has been verified. It now has a blue badge and the only twitter account for a Ugandan that is verified. This means that it is authentic. He joins other Presidents like Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania, Paul Kagame of Rwanda and Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya whose accounts are also verified.
President Museveni's account was created in March 2010, but his first tweet was made today. The account has over 20,000 followers though the President does not follow anyone.
"I send my first tweet to salute Uganda science students; they modified this vehicle's engine to run on ethanol." This was at Kyambogo University today while launching the Students loan scheme.

US based Ugandan boxer, Kassim Ouma (35) also Juliana Kanyomozi's ex was arrested last Friday in Los Angeles on allegations of knocking out a man he had just met. Minutes after meeting, Ouma went to this man's home and it's there that this 'stranger' was making gay advances on the boxer, who for a moment thought he was in the ring, knocking him out the in the process.
The victim was transported to a near by hospital as Kassim Ouma was arrested for battery, a criminal offense involving unlawful physical contact, but according to latest reports, prosecutors have dropped those charges and are now considering cocaine possession charges.
Once convicted on the cocaine charges, Kassim Ouma (The Dream) faces up to three years in jail. He is still in custody and can only be released on a $10k bail.
"Cocaine affects people differently. It can make you very talkative, violent or horny. Maybe he made a pass at him & he lost it. I just don't get why he didn't hide the drugs or flush them down the toilet while the cops came. Certain things don't make sense, " one commented on the Three Miles Zone site.

It all started with a simple pic of Farouk's mother on his wall, and like all posts, this one too attracted comments. Zari's comment was the best; "Bless her, she was good to me and to 'us'. Zari came to Uganda before Easter just to meet Farouk's parents.
Then one made a comment asking Zari what happened between her and basket ball star, Isaac Lugudde (LK4). 'My past is past, I'm with Farouk now," Zari replied.
Meanwhile, Farouk still has some cozy shots that were taken a few days back when Zari was around. In one of them, Farouk is seen bitting Zari's ear and had they not been lovers, this could be similar to the scene of Mike Tyson bitting off Evander Holyfield's ear. In the other shot, you could think a bird is feeding it's young one.
However, the shots are doing the trick for Farouk, and to some extent, he is contented. "I'ts always nice to have someone in your life that makes u smile even when they're not around, Farouk wrote.
On the other hand, Zari's estranged hubby, Ivan has resorted to writing in parables: "Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you will look back and realize they were the big things."

NTV's 'Be My Date' dating show started last Sunday. Singles looking for love are busy signing up for the show in search for love. Anita Fabiola, the first runner-up of Miss Uganda 2013/14 is the show host, but some bachelors last Sunday wished she was one of the singles on the shelf.
Anita who managed to steal the limelight from the 12 ladies will for the next couple of weeks use her knowledge of love to make others find love on the show that starts at 8:00pm every Sunday. Her beauty alone has attracted a section of viewers who have promised to follow the show to the very end.
Fabiola, through the Be My Date show is likely to give Bukedde's 'Abanoonya' a run for their money. In 'Abanoonya', singles do a bit of catwalk, and give a profile about themselves before stating clearly the qualities of the person they want. In Be My Date, the chemistry is instant.
According to Fabiola, the camera's will follow the couple to the time when they are fully satisfied that they have found love. These alternative forms of dating are fast becoming the norm and this one in particular could be better than finding someone on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Rally Driver and Panamera bar boss, Desh Kananura is the proud owner of a black Rolls-Royce Phantom, an ultra-luxury saloon automobile made by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a BMW subsidiary, in the United Kingdom. It's a 2013 model.
Unlike other tycoons like Ivan Semwanga who have achieved similar success and wealth by driving Lamborghinis on dusty Kampala streets, Desh was spotted in a black rolls-royce. It's the first of its kind in Kampala.
Desh had an inspirational message to those who looked up to him. "Not all is lost C. Saunders, founder of KFC got his break at the age of 60yrs of age. As long as the thing you carry over your shoulders is still working!!! keep fighting, only the strong survive!!! Happy Easter People."

After the successful Abanoonya show on Bukedde TV, NTV Uganda has also started a dating show dubbed; 'Be My Date'. The first episode had three bachelors, but only two were lucky to hook their significant others for a perfect getaway at Lake Victoria Serena Resort.
Most viewers wished the show host, Anita Fabiola, was among the ladies searching as she looked the most beautiful of them all. The show that started at 8pm, on Sunday had 12 ladies, six on each side as the bachelor walked in dancing to background music. The bachelor could then give a short profile about himself.
Based on the short profile, the ladies were asked by the host to indicate RED if they did not like the dude or GREEN if they were head over heels for him. The ladies were then asked as to why they chose Red or Green, one said, she liked bald headed guys and since this guy had hair, it was a turn off for her.
The bachelor is now given the chance to interview the ladies with a green light with an aim of choosing the very best between them, unfortunately, one guy aged 21, a model had all the girls indicating RED, implying that he was not the one they were looking for.
The multilingual author from Rwanda, who loves traveling and spends most of his time in the gym seems to be having a good game so far. The show will be following the new couples and what they are up to in the subsequent episodes. However, it looks like the ladies are just acting and not a reality show.

Zari and Farouk are now in a long distance relationship after Zari flew back to South Africa. Her estranged hubby, Ivan Ssemwanga is in town for the Easter holiday, so to avoid a nasty scene, she had to take off for her dear life.
Zari and Farouk have been dating for almost two months, and according to Zari, everything about Farouk is amazing. The problem now is that the couple is not together. Zari is constantly thinking about her boo and missing him terribly. She is already suffering from lack of sleep and loss of appetite.
This morning, Zari wrote on Farouk's wall: "The greatest feeling in the world: To wake up and see you have a text from the one you love." and this was Farouk's response: "En d greatest feeling is knowing...yo love is reading n feelin dat text."
Zari continues to reveal more info of what went wrong between her and Ivan. For example, she told one that Ivan spends most of his valuable time with King Lawrence as opposed to spending it with his boys. She also burst Ivan's bubble when she revealed that not all cars that Ivan posts on his wall are his.
Meanwhile, Ivan is yet to make his presence felt. He will be at Ange-Noir tonight for the 'Night in Vegas' themed party, so those vying for a place in his heart well knowing that he is searching know where to find him.

Today is the day when tycoon Ivan Semwanga is expected in the country, but by this morning, Zari was tweeting from her bedroom in South Africa and her lover boy, Farouk Sempala, rumoured to have taken off to Nairobi.
"Every girl deserves a guy who can make her forget that her heart was ever broken..... Good morning," is Zari's latest tweet.
In the tweet, it's evident that Farouk had made her forget that her heart had once been broken, but knowing what lay ahead when her estranged hubby jets into the country, the mom of three just took off.
Early this week, Ivan had warned that he was coming to Uganda to sort out Farouk. The new lover boy shot back with these words: "Love is stronger than violence...don't take my silence for granted. Thursday is here and with all due respect, I dare you, I'm patiently waiting for my slaps."
Wednesday, 16 April 2014
A lot has happened in a very short time. Zari and her latest lover, Farouk Sempala, are the talk of the town, but her Ssenga, Halima Namakula says that she is not aware of all this.
However, she promises to get back to whoever cares to know with what is happening to her 'daughter'. "Banange Senga kino tanakitegera, bwanamaanya ajja kubategeeza. Senga akyaali mubungereza." Literally translated as: "Colleagues, as Zari's auntie, I'm not aware of the latest developments, but I will let you know the moment I establish the truth."
With Ivan, Zari felt that she had waited for too long to get married. Her status updates as of this morning are a repeat of one word: 'Happy' 'Happy' 'Happy'. Well, with Farouk, she is not only happy but also looks happy. Farouk and Zari share the same religious beliefs, one of the reasons for her happiness. Wedding talks are underway again another reason to be happy.
Ivan has been busy with a series of meetings, but he is now done and he says he is ready for Uganda. Watch this space!

Judith Heard is the latest socialite to rock the reality TV world. The ex-model has finally entered into TV business and she is set to premiere her reality TV series similar to 'Zari The Boss Lady'. The show will air on Urban TV.
JH's reality show will feature her life as a mother to twin daughters and a boy, her Bugolobi village mall based fashion store and socialite lifestyle. Her not so close buddy, Zari was the first to venture into this field with the ZTBL reality TV show on UBC, but after a few episodes, it was stopped.
She tried a come back with another version that was to be screened on NTV but, the TV series is yet to start. Then came Bobi Wine with his Omubanda Wa Kabaka show that later changed name, it was rocking Agataliiko Nfuufu fans on Bukedde TV.

Dr. Hilderman of the Mazongoto fame has joined Golden Band. He is expected to join other fans at Nakawa court, a few hours from now for the dispute between Balaam Enterprises and the former Eagles Band members.
The 'YeKikyo' singer who will be launching his album on May 9 at Hotel Equatorial Parking revealed yesterday that; "I'm a Golden Band member from now on."
Iryn Namubiru, Bobi Wine, Mesach Semakula, Rema, Tigan, Ronald Mayinja and Chris Evans are some of the artistes that will perform at Hilderman's 'Yee KiKyo Abafirisuuti' album launch.
Meanwhile, Grace Sekamatte, one of the members of the new Golden Band group is inviting their fans to Nakawa court today at noon for moral support. ''Balaam and Geoffrey Lutaaya are claiming that we owe them money. It's funny how one turns around to sue you for what they took," Sekamatte wrote on his wall.
Court on Monday stopped Mesach Semakula, Ronald Mayinja, Geoffrey Lutaaya and Fred Seruga from holding any Easter concerts and if they happen to do so, it should be on the terms of Balaam Enterprises.

In mid March, Farouk went to South Africa for a short holiday and that's where he found some love. In just the last couple of days, Farouk has been treating Zari like a lady, opening the door for her, the loved up couple is always cuddling, something that Zari hadn't felt in a long time.
It's not the first time though that Zari and Ivan are splitting. Some time in 2012, the couple split citing domestic violence. Zari gave this reason for the split; "Domestic violence is a no no, had my share for a long time and I'm officially out." Ivan is a no nonsense fella, he even beat up Zari's sisters on suspicion of linking her to some dude.
A few days back, he revealed how he was going to slap Farouk the moment he lands on him, but Farouk's response was; "I'm a lover not a fighter." Ivan is expected in Kampala for Easter, though some think he might not make it this time around. On the other hand, Farouk is also keeping fit by constantly hitting the gym just in case he has to defend himself from the impending slaps.

Zari and Farouk might as well be your next showbizz couple, the love birds aren't afraid to flaunt their romance. Ivan Semwanga let out a little too much in his phone interview.
Looks like they are both determined to move on. Zari was yesterday checking on what she proudly refers to as her in-laws in Masaka and later settled at a top hang out. Their PDA just confirmed that Zari was head over heels for her new boyfriend, Farouk.
"A positive attitude gives you power over your circumstances instead of your circumstances having power over you..... Life is short. Make each day count. Give thanks and take nothing for granted. Live each day as if it were your last. It just may be....Good morning & have a blessed Saturday!!!!"
''The best revenge you can get on all of those horrible people in your past is to show them that nothing they did stopped you from being you.''
Those are some of Zari's tweets that speak volumes about her affair with lovesick hubby, Ivan Semwanga.
Saturday, 12 April 2014
In a phone interview between Ivan and top social scribe, Henry Ndugwa, the loaded fella says:
Socialite Zari did not wait for the dust to settle, and this is what she wrote:
"Hahahah.....oh bambi!!!!! Ate okwanjula tekulina divorce ate am seeking divorce to get money (how do I seek divorce b4 marriage) ate this ate that....banange. lolest!!! Pple need prayers and physiological professional help, that's too much for one mind to handle or contain. Sometimes I do wonder if pple are stripped of the small money they claim to have what will define them as Men, as in a real MAN!"
The mom of three, in her conclusion says that she wonders what will be left of Ivan if he is stripped of the 'little money'. One thing is for sure, Ivan is even failing to pretend that he's not feeling for Zari. Many are advising him to get another woman, but looks like he is not about to let go, though Zari is equally not in a hurry to go back as she seems happy, Just yesterday, she was in Masaka checking on Farouk's parents hmmm!

Looking at Chameleone's BTI card, you could easily think that he has already signed up for the National ID card better known as a Kitambulisho, but, it's the Busoga Tourism Initiative (BTI) card. It should be recalled that just recently, the speaker of Parliament, Hon. Rebecca Kadaga appointed the 'Vumilia' singer, Jose Cameleone as the Busoga Ambassador.
The choice of Chameleone as the Busoga Ambassador got tongues wagging with many wondering why Chameleone, who is not a Musoga had to be chosen to promote Busoga's tourist sites and yet we've got quite a number of artistes hailing from that region. Rachel Magoola of the 'Obangaina Fame', Afande Mega Dee, Maurice Kirya and fast rising star, Maro, the 'Kyokoba' singer among others.
The organisers are looking at how popular one was and that's why they chose Chameleone, a Ugandan who is popular in the country and abroad.
Chameleone is now appealing to every one, friends and fans to register for the Kagulu Rock Climbing Challenge that will be taking place in May 2014.
"I am greatly honored to be using my office as Ambassador of Busoga Tourism Initiative as appointed by the RT. Honourable speaker of parliament to invite all of my friends to register at the Uganda Tourism Board offices at the National Theatre for the thrilling Kagulu Rock Climbing Challenge that is to take place on the 9th and 10th May. Leone Island fans join me as we build Tourism in Uganda."

Zari's on and off hubby, Ivan Semwanga, has added a black Lamborghini to his fleet. Given the heavy Kampala traffic in the last two days, it will be 'Tourism' being stuck in the jam while cruising that 'black mamba' or better still the orange beast (IVAN 10 GP) that has been around for some time.
We hope this is not a publicity stunt aimed at shifting attention from his wife who has been making headlines with her new found love. Just yesterday, Ivan was cruising with one of his managers.
"Working days but can't resist a cruise in ma new lambo...! with ma financial manager," Ivan tweeted. On a positive note, Ivan was passing out graduates from some of his 8 campuses located in several states in South Africa. Some of the campuses are located in: Pretoria, Johannesburg, Polokwane, Durban and East London among others.

Bebe Cool is selling like a hot cake on TV's and Radio stations following his remarks on Uganda music being played more often compared to foreign artistes.
NTV hosted him on Friday and just yesterday, 93.3 KFM also hosted him answering a number of queries in the process. Among them was the age of his dear wife, Zuena Kirema who became older by another year on Thursday.
Bebe Cool said that Zuena is 28. The couple recently celebrated 12 years of love, implying that Bebe Cool met her when she was 16. The issue of Zuena's age is just as controversial as Desire Luzinda's. Bebe Cool met Zuena on the night she contested for Miss Uganda in the year 2001.
Did Zuena contest for the pageant when she was below 18 or Bebe lied about his wife's age last night?. Meanwhile, Zuena is grateful for the surprise birthday bash that was held at Forest Mall based V-Pub.
"First came dinner, then the surprise birthday party...a big thank you to all those that made this possible, you just blew me off never expected it," Zuena wrote.

"I see a new war online. People fighting for rights on radio and TV compared to the West African music played. DJ's make sure you appreciate the good music you get and artists make sure you keep giving them that good music."
That was Navio's response to the (UG VS.9JA) music debate which was started by Chameleone at his Tubonge concert and later brought to social media by Bebe Cool. The online discussion was turning into a flame of war prompting NTV's Douglas Lwanga to invite Bebe Cool to throw some light on the topic.
XFM's DJ BK was equally invited to the TV show but he instead opted to a phone-in interview as opposed to appearing in the studio. During the show, Bebe Cool mentioned Navio's name opening up a whole can of worms with fans loyal to hiphop and reggae/ragga genres of music.
"When Bebe Cool makes a comment and people twist his words, those are the people I will address. You make it seem like I didn't make the most cash of any artist in the last 2 years," Navio wrote.
The hiphop rapper who felt the remarks were belittling came out citing his many awards: "So don't talk about who is big in EA right now. Open your eyes. You can't talk about Bobi Wine, Chameleone and lastly Bebe Cool without talking about Navio in UG music, Never put me in the category of a small artist."
"I'll say it again, you can't talk about East African Music without talking about Navio. Full stop," The No Holding Back singer, Navio concluded.

Bebe Cool's campaign of 'Play Ugandan Music More or You're Shunned' had stolen the limelight from Chameleone's successful 'Tubonge' concerts which saw fans at Lugogo Cricket Oval soaked by rain all in support of his music.
But, trust the World Music Awards nominee, he made sure he adds his voice to the campaign that was started by Bebe Cool. Chameleone seems to agree with Bebe though his message is communicated differently and at this rate, we could see the music doctor giving the 'Nkola Byafayo' star a run for his money through his post.
"I stand as a musician to the best of my music knowledge. When we ask to take charge of our industry we also have in mind that we are NOT asking for segregation of foreign music."
"We just deserve a fair share of an industry that we have stood by against all odds. In such an exchange we also know that our products are not to what many can call "standards" but also it's partially every Ugandans duty to contribute to our growth evenly. It's not about Nigerian, Jamaican, South African, American or whatsoever."
"It's about Uganda and what's ours. Example if your father is broke, would you seek a richer dad? We stand together, Grow together if we are to fall together. Lets be patriotic and grow our music."
