Juliana has learnt to have fun after several failed relationships.
It's Over Between Us - Ruth Tells Christopher
Sunday, 09 March 2014
For the second year in a row, Juliana has won the Woman of Substance award.
As part of the celebrations to mark the International Women's Day, Airtel organised the Inspiring Women Concert at Garden City Rooftop and among others, they recognised women who have excelled in several areas. Juliana was recognised for the second year in a row for the role she has played in the music industry.
"Thank you Airtel for this wonderful recognition. As a young girl singing was my dream, but my prayer was, "lord help me use my music and voice to become a source of inspiration to others". To all the ladies out there, never let anyone tell you you can't. People will only put you down if you let them. Thank you to my amazing fans for voting, but most of all, for always helping me keep the faith. We did it in 2013 and we've done it again in 2014. Team Juliana, Lets go!."
Last year, she got a similar award from Warid Telecom which has since merged with Airtel, an award she dedicated to her mom. This year though, she has a positve message to the ladies: "To all the ladies out there, never let anyone tell you you can't."
After receiving the Airtel Woman of Substance Award, Juliana who was in a relatively long dress thrilled her fans with a crotch-grabbing performance leaving many of her fans excited because, it was a surprise performance as she was not part of those lined up to perform that night.

Cindy Sanyu replaces Mario Brunette, hooks Ken Muyiisa who happens to be Phina Mugerwa's lover.
As Cinderella Sanyu aka Cindy was looking for love after splitting with Mario, she landed on Ken Muyiisa, a Ugandan based in South Africa. Ken plays for Black Ace Football Club and like most Ugandans down South, Ken is equally loaded.
Phina Mugerwa's game is to shake her booty like Shakira, something that has won her lots of ardent fans over time and among them, was Ken who took this love to another level. In 2009, (Ken and Phina) hooked up and have since been in a long distance relationship, an affair that resulted in a child in 2010.
Talking to one publication, Phina said: "When Cindy realised that Mario was cheating on her, she went on a revenge mission of hooking up with someone who was far better and richer, unfortunately, she landed on my man." Phina has vowed to fight for the father of her child, though looking at how Cindy has been performing at Garden City during the Women's day concert alongside her Queen dancers, chances are, Phina's strokes were not measuring up anymore.
Kenneth says that he will still continue to provide for his son. ''But still I'll never forego my responsibilities as the father of my boy, Sandton."

We all know what Cindy is capable of when it comes to teaming up with Jamaican stars, the Dilemma song is testimony to this.
Jamaican star, Nyanda of the Slippery When Wet fame is in the country ahead of her performance on International Women's Day. However, the ex Brick N Lace half duo and our very own Cindy Sanyu have redone the Slippery When Wet song, it will be first performed on Women's Day, Saturday Mar 8, 2013 at Garden City Roof Top.
This afternoon, Nyanda was on 88.2 Sanyu FM giving highlights for tomorrow's concert with her voice sounding like it was gone, but she said by tomorrow, it will all be fine and she will be mashing up the place.
Cindy will join her in doing their remix and the fans should expect fire when the two are doing this part; All night long we dancing on the florr we grinding...
One fan asked her the meaning of the song and this is what she had to say: "When searching for love, be careful as everything has a price." This will be her second collaboration with a Ugandan artist. She first did 'Like A pro' with Navio.
Friday, 07 March 2014
Irene Ntale is slowly but surely taking over. If you love 'Stay With Me' and 'Nkubukinze' which was her very first studio single, you need to try out 'Smile For Me Uganda'.
A nice voice coupled with her versatile style, 'Smile Uganda' could be the best song most music lovers have listened to this month. A few months back, Tusker Project Fame judge, Juliana Kanyomozi, said that Irene was promising and through her music, you can't fail to notice that she is a force to be reckoned with.
'Smile For Me Uganda' remix is a reggae rendition which will surely get Irene to the top of favorite artists lists for many fans out there.
Tonight, she will be performing alongside Jackie Chandiru at Fusion Auto Spa doing most of her hit songs that include Love Letter which she did with Bebe Cool and tomorrow, on The International Women's Day, Irene Ntale will be part of the line up of female artists to perform at Garden City Roof Top. Jamaican star, Nyanda Thorbourne will be the top performer of the night.

88.5 Super FM's CEO, Pastor Peter Sematimba has been evicted from Muyenga Club. Peter had assumed ownership of the club following the passing of it's owner, Paul Ssebalu, who was found dead on Friday, November 8, 2013 at his home. He suffered from diabetes and hypertension.
A funeral service was held at 8pm on Saturday, and on Sunday 10, 2013 the veteran advocate who died aged 88 was buried. Themi Nakibuka Sebalu, a cousin to Peter Sematimba was Sebalu's only child who arrived three days after his burial. Efforts to delay the burial ceremony led by Peter Sematimba so that she could attend were frustrated.
On December 11, 2013 Peter Sematimba transferred Muyenga Club into his name something that forced Themi to drag him to court over what she termed as a fraudulent transfer of her father's land.
On Wednesday (Mar.5.2013), Court bailiffs together with police raided Muyenga Club which had since changed name to Muyenga Resort Club to evict Peter Sematimba. The eviction process was peacefull. Court bailiff Moses Kirunda who was overseeing the process noted that the transfer was forged and that the property belonged to Themi Nakibuka Ssebalu.
Employees who were demanding for their salary for the last three months were left stranded as some did not even have transport back.

Jose Chameleone has vehemently denied being a father to video vixen, Naila Salim's four-year-old daughter and to prove his innocence, he went for DNA testing. Naila (23) dragged Chamili to FIDA accusing him of child neglect.
Test results were released on January 24, 2014 and they excluded the Tubonge star as the biological father to Naila Salim's daughter. Naila featured in Chameleone's 'Vumilia' and 'Nkwagala Nyo' videos.
Much as the results have ruled out Chameleone as the biological father his accuser is sure that the 'Tubonge' star is the dad and her family maintains, she had not been with any other man. Chameleone has five children, four with Daniella and one with his ex, Onsea Griet better known as Dorotia.
Meanwhile, the number of people accessing DNA services has gone up based on the recent happenings.

RnB reggae artiste, Nyanda of the ex-Brick N Lace sister-group is in town ahead of her performance on Women's day at Garden City Rooftop. Talent Africa's Aly Alibhai was at the airport to receive her.
Nyanda will be performing with local artistes that include Keko, Cindy, Jackie Chandiru, Sheebah Fille and Irene Ntale.
The 'Slippery When Wet' singer is determined to take her solo career to higher levels. "After being one half of a group for so long, the time has come for me to find myself as a whole... to stand on my own two feet, and I am feeling the pressure. I try not to think about it too much so I am just concentrating on the music," she told one publication from Jamaica.
As part of her European Tour that starts in March, Nyanda will perform in Holland and she says; "Holland will not be the same after this."

Following the collapse of Esther Akakwansa's marriage to Nico Damminger, another German, Heiko Grund has gone on rampage spilling secrets of most Kampala babes that were in his circles.
Heiko Grund was staying in Kampala between 2002 and January 2007 when he relocated to Tanzania where he operates his Motor Sport business. During that time, Heiko had many close relationships with Kampala socialites and among them was Cindy's sister, Belinda, an affair that resulted into a son.
However, the failure of Nico and Esther's short marriage has left Heiko very excited. These two were in direct competition for the socialites, dated and played by the same girls, and now this is the time to bring out their differences. For now though, Nico is still recovering from the shock, so he might not have much to say.
Heiko adds that he has dated Hellen, Cindy and also Miss Uganda 2004, Barbara Kimbugwe who was quick to rubbish this talk. "Searching for attention under my shadow. It's a pity but take your crack head back to Germany (ooops!! They kicked you out too) and Ugandans kicked you out.....'what an idiot," Barbara wrote.
With more info unfolding now, we are yet to see more socialites coming out with their versions. Heiko is yet to respond to this!

Have you listened to the 'Ice Cream' eating song? Sheebah Karungi is the artiste behind it! Of late, the ex-obsession's singer has developed an obsession for tattoos with her most recent being five words describing the real Sheebah!
Her back has been inscribed with these words; 'Iam Strong', 'Iam Worthy', 'Iam Beautiful','Iam Imperfect' and Iam Me.. Now if you are looking for one with such a CV, then Sheebah could fit in those shoes.
She also has a 'Shee' tattoo written on her index finger which is seen when she sticks up her finger. We've seen different tattoos like Barbie having a portrait of Bobi Wine on her back, Chameleone having a neck tat of his wife's name and kids, plus other drawings of the things they like.
However, Sheebah had to go under the needle to prove how beautiful, strong and worthy she is but since she did not leave out 'Iam Imperfect', we will leave it at that.

Birds of a feather flock together - Leila Kayondo (top) and Helen Lukoma (bottom) are best of friends and seem to share a lot in common lately.
Leila Kayondo (24) is from the defunct all girl group, Dream Galz, while Helen was formerly with the Obsession group which she left together with Brenda Nambi to form HB Toxic that was dissolved in 2012. Hellen and Brenda have since been concentrating on music and fashion.
For now though, Helen has teamed up with Leila and the two seem to have a lot going their way. They cruise BMW convertibles, given to them by their significant others, they both have fashion stores( L-Kay Kollections and House of Lukoma) and they continue doing music. Leila's latest is 'Amazing' and Helen's is 'Samina Mina'.
With music not working out the way she had hoped and her acting role in The Hostel Series not bringing in enough, Helen is thinking of venturing into a new field all together (Hellen Lukoma Gone Wild) though the timing might just not be right.
Helen's significant other, Dean Nsubuga gave her a BMW on Valentine's day while Leila became the proud owner of the convertible ride when her lover, SK Mbuga upgraded to a BMW X6. One thing is for sure though, SK has done so much justice to Leila's music.

Just like Juliana did on her upclose and personal concert, the first of it's kind in six years, Desire Luzinda has also come up with a similar concept.
She will be holding her first concert in six years on 6.Jun.2014 which she has code named; 'Black and White Affair' On that day, she will perform for three hours for her guests who will be dressed in Black and White. Entrance fee will be 100k just like Juliana charged.
Juliana's concert was sold out to the point that even when she was doing her last track, there were people trying to access the concert venue that was at the time filled to capacity. We are yet to see how well curvy Desire will pull this off.
Just yesterday, she was excited about meeting the Ogopa DJ's while having a discussion about shooting a video for her latest song, 'Equation'. This is what she had to say:
"Had a long day meeting with one of the Ogopa video crew am excited about the Equation shoot." Meanwhile, she looked hot in her torn jeans, one fan sought her views on the mini-skirt law and she said: "The mini-skirt law ain't gat nothing on me."

Sometimes It's not meant to be. Glamour gal Esther Akankwasa and her German based hubby have split after nine months of marriage. These two were wed in a Kansanga quickie wedding, four months after hooking up, and now, Nico has filed for divorce citing infidelity.
Nico says that he thought that she could change, but this was not the case. On Valentine's day, Esther's new lover gave her a Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
Esther confirmed this further in a hot exchange with Nico Damminger's friend who told her that; "Make sure they don't take the car from you when they find out who you really are leaving you like it happened before.."
"Yes I divorced Nico and that I guess is none of your business, whoever bought me the car is not an issue," Esther wrote.
Chatting with a close pal on WhatsApp! Nico said: "Fact is that I financed 100% of her life for 13 months that I offered her stuff for over 25M, that I bought her a RAV4 last December and that I financed this fake wedding all alone. All together around 100M..But that's only money and for me not really important though painful to lose for such a person."
Nico and Esther are the latest casualties. Last year was Christopher Thomas and Tooro's beautiful Princess, Ruth Komuntale.

Former HB Toxic member, Helen Lukoma used facebook to flaunt her legal assets. She got nak3d for this social media portrait. The posting was not accidental because she had this to say:
"Day in day out...I learn to appreciate myself...I learn to love myself whether I'm doing good or bad, people will always talk and hate. One day I will die but until then, am going to live my life to the fullest. With lots of love and respect for those who love me, my life is mine and mine alone," as she signed off.
On Valentine's day, her lover, Dean Nsubuga gave her a BMW Roaster as a present but some were quick to flag it as a publicity stunt, may be they are the ones she is referring to when she says; 'whether I'm doing good or bad, people will always talk and hate.'
Meanwhile, in the shot below, Barbie is proud to show off her gigantic tat of her hubby, Bobi Wine while Hellen's tat has been lost in the pic above as it's underneath below!!

NTV's Login host, Robin Kisti is fit to burst. She is expecting her first child, a baby boy. Many fans to her show have been wondering the secret behind the weight gain lately, but this will clear all their doubts.
"After a long wait at the doctors, we are excited to announce that we are expecting a baby BOY! I cant wait to meet my lil prince because i am so ready to be his mummy, " Kisti noted on her wall. Her biggest craving is chips.
Oh the pregnancy has also got her hooked to 88.2! "Sanyu fm, thank you for turning my boring car rides into soulful and fun rides. I feel like I have discovered this radio too late because for the past 2 weeks I have not found anything to complain about this radio. Keep up the great work coz am hooked!"
Last week's Login show had Valentine's day highlights plus the launch of Katomi Kingdom Resort in Garuga among others, and Robin was in a red dressed that clearly exposed the bump.

Isaac Mulindwa of the defunct Pearl of Africa Music Awards, better known as PAM Awards has spoken out on what he thinks is the future for the music awards in the country.
His invitation on NTV The Beat came on the heels of the Hipipo awards that had one artist winning six accolades and a host of fans and nominees complaining that the awards were not fair.
PAM Awards were around for 10 years, but, have been on hold for two years now. However, in just the two years the PAM awards have been on hold, we've witnessed all sorts of awards ranging from Diva awards, Golden Awards,Twaweza, Gospel Awards, Hipipo, Social Media Awards to mention but a few.
However, some of them don't go beyond their first year. Isaac is of the view that individuals cannot organise awards, it should be government or an association in the music industry to organise them, short of that, you are bound to witness more confusion.
Isaac also revealed that most sponsors have changed their sponsorship packages and the current ones do not favour those who join the wagon to earn in the short run.
"Corporate companies no longer sponsor these events and that is the reason most of the awards don't go beyond their first year. Sponsors are now into 'sales oriented' campaigns like Kyakala. In the past, they used to put in so much, but things are different now," Isaac said.

Bad Black was at City Hall Court on Thursday looking-good for someone coming from jail.
A week back, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black pleaded guilty after telling the court Magistrate, Juliet Hatanga that she was drunk at the time of knocking, confirming, that she was guilty.
Dressed in some outfit that was long enough not to attract other charges, Bad Black was sentenced to a fine of Shs5m or face a jail term of one year. Fearing that this could affect the period she was to spend in jail, she opted to pay the fine that will be used as compensation to the victims.
Meanwhile, her troubles are far from over. The ex-socialite will be back in court on Mar 07, 2014 for having defaulted on a loan of Shs80m that increased to Shs105 with interest. According to court documents, Bad Black borrowed 80m in October 2011 from Mpanga with a promise of paying back after one month.
She used her maroon BMWx6 as collateral, unfortunately, at the time she was required to pay back, her accounts had been frozen, the BMW attached by Uganda Revenue Authority (URA). As fate could have it, Bad Black was jailed in July 2012, released four months later to go for treatment.
It was only in November 2013 that she was extradited from Rwanda to continue serving her sentence. This has also allowed other cases to take off.

The World's Music Awards are redifining the who is who in the music industry after our very own artists were nominated for the 2014 awards.
Chameleone made it to the World's Best Male Artist and our 2013 BET Nominees, Moze Radio and Weasel have also been nominated in the World's Best Group Category, becoming the first Ugandan group to make it to the World Music Awards.
In that category, over 240 groups have been lined up for the nod ranging from Backstreet Boys, Bon Jovi, Boyzone, Destiny's Child, Mafikizolo and Nigeria's dynamic duo, P-Square.
Twelve groups from Africa are among the over 240 groups nominated. Moze Radio and Weasel broke away from Chameleone in 2008 and six years later, they are rubbing shoulders with their mentor on the same global platform only that they are dealing with him as a team.
Voting is underway on http://vote.worldmusicawards.com/selectnomination.asp?cat=6.

"YES!!! Another one for you haters who hated on my 'DANIELLA' tattoo. ohooo!! Iam an artiste, my body is becoming an art piece. Where Iam deliberately decorating my love. Iam not going to wait for 'Fathers' Day. Mr. Mayanja Senior-my Dad, you are worthy more than anything in this world, you know me, inspire me, this one is for you."
Fathers Day is June 20 and as the Tubonge star says, he is not going to wait for it to pay tribute to his dad. Two weeks back, he was in South Africa where he got a Daniella neck tat, a special way to celebrate his love for Daniella now that he wasn't going to be with her on Valentine's day.
He also has his names of his four children on his forearm. He is yet to add his first born though. Now that his body has become an art piece, he is looking for a suitable place for the mom too!. Tubonge launch will be held on March 28 at Lugogo Cricket Oval.

Katsha is back. His friends and Sushi fans have been wondering why the South African based businessman had disappeared from their facebook lists. His last post was on January 14 and he only resumed postings yesterday. However, before coming back, he hatched a plan with best friend, Stella, of Star QT fashions.
Stella wrote on her wall: "Katsha is in Sun City Jail. He was found in possession of an unregistered firearm."
On bouncing back, this is what Katsha wrote: "Sometimes you have to pretend, know your friends, haha I now know who my haters are!!" Katsha decided to deactivate his page to recover from the Sushi party losses.
Meanwhile, he introduced the Sushi party theme here in Kampala and less than two months later, another Sushi Party combined with a White Party is being planned at Satellite Beach in Mukono on February 28, 2014. Ziza Bafana, Rema and Sizzaman among others will be the performers for the night.

It's a remotely controlled aircraft with it's pilot on the ground or in a vehicle. They are mostly used in military operations but civilians can as well use them say in cases of fire fighting or real estate photography for high buildings, a cheaper option to chartering a helicopter. Drones come in handy for places that are "dull, dirty or dangerous" for manned aircrafts.
"Action drone camera at Nkola Byafaayo video shoot now,'' Bebe wrote. This was during the shooting of his latest song; 'Nkola Byafaayo' which means doing wonders. Most Gagamel fans can't wait to watch what they are already terming as the 'Video of the year 2014'.
Most posts that followed had more of Big is Big, Wamalayo, Akola byafaayo and so on. The drone pics had more than 2000 likes.
Meanwhile, two days back, Bebe Cool was performing at the Grand Opening of the New Katomi Kingdom Resort in Garuga where he left his fans yearning for more.

It's not clear what is disturbing these two, but Josephine Karungi should come in to save the situation.
First things first. Vince Musisi is NTV News Anchor Josephine Karungi's hubby, they tied the knot in December 2012, however, they have been having issues lately and Joel Khamadi is a sports anchor with the same TV station, NTV Uganda.
In his post on Saturday evening, which he deleted shortly after following several respondents telling him to grow up, Vince made his point clear to Joel Khamadi.
"This boy JOE Khamadi who reads news on NTV....him and his tabloid friends say that I'm a bad boy and other things..Dude I'm not the reason you're stuck in adolescent stage and talk to our nation while drunk. I'm a married man, a parent and God fearing. I'm a grown up and not searching, so better grow up too."
Vince Musisi who is a music producer with Swangz Avenue talked to a sqoop writer a few days back revealing what his worst habit was; "To let you know when you make me mad, I don't keep it inside. I have failed to learn how to deal with anger up to now."
Looks like his worst habit had gotten hold of him.

Fatboy's Freaky Valentines party was for the 'Truly unromantic and currently unattached,' and guests were not allowed to put on red, a dress code they all respected.
February is the month of love when most people celebrate Valentine's day by giving out flowers, candy and a BMW like we saw in the case of Hellen and Dean (Happy Valentines! Hellen's Lover Says It With a BMW).
Sanyu FM's Fatboy had something on the side for those who were single, unromantic and currently unattached, and Capital FM's Alex Ndaula was one of the guests. This did not come as a surprise following his facebook messages early this month in which he revealed that he was hurting.
"I have to say this, I hurt! I have been with a lady who I love deeply! want her, need her but she does stupid shi*t!" was one of the posts on his wall clearly indicating that all was not well.
At Fatboy's Freaky Party, he was spotted in the company of Anisha, a top exotic dancer.

With Valentine's day fast approaching, scenes like these will be the order of the day as lovers try to say 'I Love You' in various ways.
Bebe Cool is one type of lover who will not hesitate to do a PDA - that's a public displays of affection once the feeling to show Zuena just how much he loves her strikes.
And, he never runs out of ideas. If he's not grabbing his significant other by surprise, he will be thinking out of the box with his teeth or his very latest, a simple kiss on the thigh that took Zue by surprise. With these unique ways of saying the three magical words, it's not surprising to see that just a few days back, the couple was celebrating 12 years of being in love.
The Gagamel CEO might get away with some of those unacceptable PDA's, but, that does not mean that you treat your lover to Bebe's PDAs and if you do, then proceed with caution.

"It was a lesson learned not to go for beauty but to go for what God wants and that is peace and love." Christopher Thomas noted on his wall.
As expected, friends and followers were quick to respond with one telling him of how Ruth has also changed. She is now into charity taking care of the needy and depressed women, I guess your divorce was God's plan, one wrote.
This rubbed him the wrong way: "Ha you call giving biscuits to children who need water, fruits, vegetables to survive as life changing lol, Then doing it in Entebbe of all places not Tooro. I guess she is a Princess of all Nations. First she needs to stay in her own lane before she goes to others."
"Look how the children gave her a what the hell is this look. No joy nor happiness in that picture."
The Tooro Princess, Ruth Komuntale was a few days back in Entebbe donating clothes and food in Kituburu along Entebbe road. She later visited Sanyu Babies home in Kampala. However, some were siding with Thomas claiming that she could have started from Tooro other than Entebbe and Kampala.

As she left the stage, she reached out to Bebe Cool for a handshake in appreciation of all that he had done for her while still with the Gagamel Crew, but Bebe Cool's body language spoke volumes.
"There comes a time when a child must get on his/her feet, but that does not mean that a baby can run," Those were some of Bebe Cool's words shortly after firing Rema from Gagamel Crew. In what seemed like a baby running, Rema was among the top winners for the widely criticised Hi Pipo Awards.
Rema's 'Kukaliba' got the nod for 'Best Female RnB song and Bebe Cool was called in to hand over the accolade, but, he declined. The organizers passed on the accolade to Rema.

Lawyers and law students have a good resource to refer to when dealing with matters to do with property.
City businessmen, Mukesh Shukla of Shumuk Group of Companies and the Pakistan Envoy in Uganda, Bonny Katatumba have for the last five years been in a legal battle for the ownership of Shumuk House which has now been renamed Katatumba Suites following a court order that Bonny Katatumba repossess the property.
"God has finally answered my prayers by getting this 5 year long awaited justice from court where my building has been given back to me." Police was this morning deployed at the building to oversee the eviction process which went on smoothly.
In 2008, Dr. Katatumba was indebted to the tune of $5m, so he approached Mukesh Shukla. A deal was struck and Katatumba agreed to sell Blacklines House to Mukesh at $5m. Two months later, Mukesh pulled out of the deal citing the global crisis effects. He later softened by shifting from the original $5m to $4m, Katatumba accepted.
Mukesh paid $3,059,000. There was a balance of $1.7 which he had failed to pay forcing Katatumba to drag him to court. The High Court ordered Mukesh to pay within a specified period, but he still failed. Meanwhile, there is an ongoing case in which a one Hassan Wandera accuses Mukesh of hiring him to eliminate Katatumba.

He writes: "RIP comrade "Adam Keita" We came along way as kids from Nakasero Primary when we met as childhood friends, We further grew into boys and still kept the relationship as friends."
"You Introduced me to the streets, and promoted me to Nairobi as a hustler on the "Mawingo bus" I returned as a brother and we together planned the "Jamila" video in which your face will remain for life even when you gone. May the almighty father keep your soul in eternal peace."
Juliana Kanyomozi was also a friend to Keita and very saddened that no one had told her about his condition. Keita had been ill for sometime.
Juliana writes: "Adam Keita.. It is so sad you are gone. You were such a wonderful soul, every time I saw you ,you had this big smile on yo face. You always reminded me of my late cousin brother prince Roger (R.I.P), jus like him, you lit up a room when u walked in. Jus like him, everyone in Kampala was your friend. Rich, poor, big, small, black, white, famous, powerful you name them."
"But it breaks me that you died in such conditions. You didn't deserve that. Someone should have said something. I'm sure we would have joined hands to help a good brother out. Sleep well Adam Keita. R.I.P"

During the time when he was the Kampala Mayor, Seya met Owori in 2006 and two years later, the two were blessed with a child who was being taken care of by Owori's lover then, Munk Nielson. They later split and the fashionista ended up with kick boxer, Malik Kalisa.

"12 years ago, I met this handsome dread locked singer at Crane Chambers, most of my friends said where am I taking this 'muyaye' because of his standing dread locks then, but I instead stuck with him because of love."
Zuena adds that having been in love with Bebe Cool for that long, she has turned out to be a love consultant (Ssenga) busy advising others on how to keep a man for over a decade.
"..and my friends are instead proud of me and I'm now like their Senga, we have cried and laughed together and are proud parents of three and I must say, we are going stronger than ever, I love you my superman."

During that time, Bebe Cool came up with an instant hit dubbed 'Agenze' in which he was confirming to his fans that indeed Zuena had dumped him. These things happen in love. The couple rekindled their love after nine months and since then, they've only been growing stronger.
Just recently, Bebe Cool introduced to the media his 18-year-old son he fathered from an earlier relationship, but somehow, this did not bother Zuena that much after being assured that she was the one 'in things' after all. In the month of September 2013, Zuena started off with her latest job as NTV Life stories host after spending so many years without a job.
Meanwhile, the latest news from Bebe Cool's camp is his participation in the Tusker Twende Kazi reality TV show that will see him carry a Tusker bottle to London with other well known personalities.

Davido was here last Decemeber to face off with Chameleone in what they termed as the 'War of Titans', a club beer-sponsored event. Unfortunately, the turn up was low after the show was cancelled by KCCA.
They later gave them a go ahead, but it was too late.

Cindy was among his sureties after paying Shs5m, also not cash. The complainants say, Mario's Bukoto based bar, Cayenne, has been playing loud music between 19 October 2013 to date, proving a noise nuisance to the neighbours.
The noise was way beyond the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) maximum noise levels permissible during the night. Investigations into the case are ongoing. It was adjourned to 4 Mar 2014.

Twende Kazi Reality Show is yet to start and Bebe Cool seems more than ready to deliver a Tusker bottle to Humphrey Kayange in London. Last Saturday, he was in Nairobi for the Twende-Kazi all star video shoot that will be used to promote the coming season.
One of the Twende Kazi officials, a lady, shared a moment with Bebe Cool, she seemed fascinated with the way he planned to do his thing. She was later seen taking Bebe Cool's number.
Back home, Bebe Cool's fans are so excited with the recent developments and so is his wife, Zuena Kirema who had this to say: "Go Bebe the sky is the limit for you." In the UK, some of Bebe's fans are wishing he could carry for them a bell bottle or nile special bottle as Ugandan beers are so costly if you are to buy them from the UK.
88.2 Sanyu FM's Seanice Kacungira, 91.3 Capital FM's Flavia Tumusiime and Bebe Cool are part of the top 25 well known personalities in the show. Recruitment of the other 25 contestants is underway and they will be mostly from Uganda and Tanzania.

The Uganda Cranes Team that is down in South Africa has already got 10m from philanthropist Ivan Semwanga, King Lawrence and Cheune.
The Ugandan team will be playing Morocco this evening at 8pm and should they win, that will be an additional 20m for them making it 30m. The game will be live on UBC. If Uganda wins this game, it will make it to the last eight teams in the biannual championships.
Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports coming in indicate that Ivan Ssemwanga was last night battered with a baton at Marvel pub on long street in Capetown. We will return with more on this story as it develops.

We told of how Bebe Cool is among the 25 well known personalities that will be featuring in the Tusker Twende Kazi reality show that will be airing soon. The Big Size singer will be joined by two female radio personalities in representing the country in the reality show.
Sanyu FM's Seanice Kacungira, radio and TV personality, Flavia Tumusiimwe are the other two Ugandans in the reality show.
On Saturday morning, Flavia and Bebe Cool were at Hilton Hotel in Nairobi doing some work in line with the reality show. But trust the 'Enyonyi Enkezze' star, by Saturday evening, he was in Malaba to join his Gagamel band for a performance at Queens Palace. Bebe Cool performed most of his hits for the fans up to the wee hours of Sunday morning.
One female fan joined him, but this was before he had removed his shirt. Bebe Cool promises more fire in 2014.

Chameleone did not stop at that, he also went on to reconcile with his brothers, Weasel and Pallaso. Several family meetings had failed to unite them, but for now, It's Tubonge. Pallaso is the one behind the 'Amaaso' song with the Goodlyfe Crew.
Chameleone has also made peace with Moze Radio and they've already had performances together confirming that they've left their past behind them. Moze Radio was particularly on Chameleone's case over the Karamagi case.
The whole of last year, Chameleone spent a greater part of it worrying about the case of Robert Karamagi who allegedly torched himself from the singer's sitting room on Dec 26, 2012. He later died from those burns.
The latest information regarding that case is that all evidence that was gathered was inconsistent and contradicting. "We re-evaluated all the evidence, but it's contradicting and inconsistent. We have not found any evidence and therefore we directed the police to close the file," Ms Jane Kabugo, the DPP spokesperson said.
Sunday, 19 January 2014
Goodlyfe Crew member, Weasel, has shared a pic posing with a gun followed by this comment; "All ya men shall fall down if they cross ma lane..." We wonder if he's been faced with any threats lately but cross his lane, might not be a wise move.
A week from now, Moze Radio will be launching his Soldiers Bar in Wandegeya and a source from the Goodlyfe Crew says: "It's the Soldiers Bar not soldiers with guns but soldiers of fun, money and lovers of good music."
The gun lovers list is growing. Last September, as Barbie was celebrating her birthday, she teamed up with her hubby, Bobi Wine and the two went for gun shooting lessons.

Members of the other family have also apologized for what went wrong. They have opened another chapter though, they want to be compensated for having taken care of Paddy when he was actually not their son. Police has left them to carry out those negotiations.
Amarula Family member, Messe, is now comfortable with which family to work with. Earlier on, they were on his case for not being cooperative with the money that had been collected, but they have since apologized. Messe is now working very closely with Paddy Bitama's dad, Peter Njegula.
In a related development, one pastor who claims to have predicted Paddy Bitama's death is now saying that Kadongo Kamu star singer, Mathias Walukaga is the next one to die, something that has left him disturbed that he had to rush to police and report the matter. Police is now hunting down that pastor. One person has been arrested to help with the investigations into those allegations.

A height difference which favors the lady is certainly not an easy one. Frank Gashumba was on Friday afternoon posing with the newly crowned Africa's Next Top Model, Aamito Stacie Lagum (21) at Sheraton Hotel, which was the venue for her first press conference.
"I would like to thank everybody for their support and for believing in me," Aamito said during the press conference. Then, came the photo moment with the top model, Frank Gashumba was one those who dashed for the session. Stacie tried looking shorter for the social activist but he was too short to handle.
"From Kitgum to Kampala, then Nairobi to Johannesburg and then to the World Business Center in New York. Do not tell me you can't make it!" Frank wrote on his wall.
Stacie later went to Kisementi based Capital FM for a radio interview. Meanwhile, Sheraton Hotel Kampala has offered her a fully paid weekend, so you now know where to find Africa's NTM.

The latest information from Amarula Family regarding Paddy Bitama's burial is that the waiting is still on before he can eventually be laid to rest. Messe informed friends and family that the DNA samples have now been taken to Nairobi after it was discovered that the body was contaminated.
"Dear friends and Paddy Bitama's fans, the police and Doctors from Mulago Hospital have just informed us that the body was contaminated and the DNA process could not be completed. They have now decided to take the samples to Nairobi. We shall keep you informed."
Understanding the aspect of DNA contamination might require DNA experts for now. Police has also appealed for calm from Paddy Bitama's friends and family until they get a response from Nairobi.
Paddy Bitama lost the battle to cancer last Saturday and he was to be buried by Monday, but that was not possible as Peter Njegula interrupted the process by claiming that Paddy was his son to the utter shock of the family that was responsible for his upbringing.
Meanwhile, Peter is ready for whatever outcome of the results and he says that once all is done, Paddy can actually be buried on Masaka road, Mitala Maria where they had planned to bury him but also expressed shock over the other family that says should it turn out that Paddy is not their son, Peter will have to refund all the money that was spent on Paddy.END.
Friday, 17 January 2014
Peter Kasozi adds that; "Should the test results reveal that Paddy is not my son, I will respect that decision." However, some family members in Nansana, where Paddy was staying at the time of his death are accusing Nicholas aka Messe, one of the Amarula Family members for not being transparent and cooperative with the money or condolences. They have bills to clear.
"Mourners have been here for the last one week and we are short of funds to feed them and these Amarula members are not cooperating. All our efforts of demanding for funds are landing on deaf ears," one family member in Nansana said. When Nicholas heard this, he shot back.
"We are equally stuck as we do not know who to deal with between the Nansana family and the Magere family. We've been forced to bank the money on the Amarula account up to the time when police can advise us of which family to deal with."
We paid for the funeral services to the tune of 4.2m and the balance of 1.2m is safely banked. It could have been 1.4 but some of the notes were found to be counterfeit notes, Messe said.
Comedian Paddy died last Saturday and his body is still at Mulago Hospital morgue. He will be laid to rest after the DNA results are out.

As he was bunch trimming, you could think Bad Black's ex was shooting a documentary, though he might think of using gumboots as opposed to slippers next time for better results. Many were quick to tell him that this was the way to go, this type of investment is way better than cars, though, it's no field for jokers and as he rightly puts it, 'It's a new year, no jokes'.
"This is indeed a new year, a wise man has to do what you just did. It's a lifetime investment. Leave alone these people who are buying cars and call them assets, you rock!" a close pal told him.
Last Sunday, he was at One Love Beach with Bobi Wine and Chameleone busy touring sites around Busabala on Bobi's ''Yacht''.

Venom's Nickita calls socilaite Tracy Bora a grand Ma!
City socialite Tracy Bora and Club Venom's Marketing Manager, Nickita Bachu are at war. Trouble stems from the comments that Tracy Bora made on her wall following Nickita's birthday bash that was held at Club Venom on Saturday.
"Nickita's Birthday party was a Guiness party and not a Champagne party," Tracy wrote. This post attracted a lot of activity from camps loyal to Nickita and Bora, but to Nickita, that was not enough minus adding in the granny flavour.
"This old woman, she doesn't even know how to diss, granny brain busy showing her granny tits on facebook. Me and you aren't on the same page. You are so hurt over my party, but switiie!, I got no time for ediots like you."
Tracy Bora promptly shot back; "How can I start a war with such a rat, I'm not her class, she came from far and I'm a city born." It must have got hot that Nickita just had to pull the post down as both camps were about to break through their 'firewalls'.

Female guests at the bar have been walking with difficulty because of the very many stones on the floor of the bar that opened last November.
Sharon O was pretty much aware of that and has been working round the clock to have that sorted, but, she was also in a hurry to launch before the festive season. "My baby is growing. Thank you so much for the support. Your comfort is our first priority. Blu-Ice bar floor is under construction, shout out to my gals, I know how destructive it has been."
Some of the lady customers had gotten into a habit of moving with spare shoes that they could use while at the bar or some had just stopped wearing heels at all if they were to go to Blu-Ice Bar which Sharon runs jointly with Ronnie Mulindwa, the father to her son, Lisbon.
Ronnie did actually conduct the recruitment of the Blu-Ice bar gals and some of the qualifications were; they had to be prepared to put on high heels for at least 8 hours, had to be cute, eloquent, smart and in shape.
Ronnie and Sharon O had issues some months back, but just like any other couple, they made up and now, Sharon O says nothing can come in between them.

Updated - Paddy Bitama has been an icon to the comedy industry. Colleagues and fans at large who have been rubbing shoulders with him are still in shock following his death last Saturday. In line with that and the desire to recognize his achievement, his body was taken to National Theater on Sunday night for public viewing.
Several stars have contributed adequately to ensure that Paddy is given a befitting burial that is yet to take place once the paternity wrangle is sorted. Below is the breakdown of the contributions in dollars:
Dr. Kizza Besigye - Over $12,000 (He's been supporting the fallen comedian from the time he fell sick).
Jose Chameleone - $200
Ragga Dee - $40
Fred Sebatta - $40
The full list of those who contributed in Ugx is right below. However, some of the mourners were putting fake 50,000/- notes claiming that they have contributed 10k and in the process taking out 40,000/-.

This follows a one Peter Kasozi sticking to his guns that Paddy Ssali aka Bitama is his son, and, must be buried at his ancestral home. At the same time, the known family members to the late Paddy Bitama as expected, were ready to have him buried yesterday with his grave neatly done, but they might have to wait a little longer.
How Long Will This Take?
Last Friday, it was rumoured that Paddy Bitama was dead which turned out to be a death hoax, but a day later, Paddy Bitama died but many still doubted. Friends and family including Peter Kasozi went to Nansana where his body was to prove, but unfortunately for Peter, he was chased by comedians and die hard fans to The Amarula Comedy group.
Peter Kasozi had to involve police and that is how events have unfolded so far.

Ex-HB Toxic member, Brenda Nambi of B'ambi Fashions went swimming at Speke Resort Munyonyo though, it was after a few bottles.
"Life is too short to be sitting around miserable, I will drink to that, " Brenda wrote as she cooled off. We hope that drinking wasn't in reference to pool water like Desire did a few days back.
Lately, Helen and Brenda seem to be more into fashion than music. Helen juggles between promoting her House of Lukoma (HL), her acting role in The Hostel drama series and her music.
On October 5, 2013, Helen was celebrating her belated birthday at Guvnor, a party she enjoyed promising her lover, Dean Nsubuga a baby, which makes it another role onto her busy schedule.

Early in the day, Barbie invited all that wished to rub shoulders with top musicians to join them. ''We have Bobi Wine and some surprise musician visitors coming in for their first time today. Want to rub shoulders? Come through today. You are all welcome."
Bobi took Chameleone on a guided tour of One Love beach discussing in details what future plans he had in the best place to eat chips and fish in Busabala. The two stars in the company of Meddie Ssentongo went for a boat cruise touring areas around the beach as he told him of his expansion plans.
They later settled for fish, chips sending it down with a wide assortment of drinks with background music that included some of their top hits. Chameleone, then, told him; 'Let's march to the 28th Mar Tubonge date.

In the last three weeks, Juliana has been dominating front pages courtesy of her latest true friend, King Lawrence. On Friday, The Mighty Red Pepper under the title - 'Why Men Use and Dump Juliana' wrote that; "Despite being stable financially, Juliana gets a lot of excitement with her men."
"She recently, for example, left her kid alone in her posh crib in Lungujja and shifted to plush Serena Hotel to please King Lawrence, but 'the seer' King Lawrence did not see in her characteristics of a responsible wife." The article went on to list other men in her life that include Amon, the father of her son, US based Kick-boxer, Kassim Ouma, Mujib Kasule and now King Lawrence.
This and so many others rubbed Juliana the wrong way. On Saturday, using her facebook profile, she wrote a 'lovely' message to her haters:
"To my haters, I'm gonna say this and it comes with love. I have always wondered why one chooses to hate on another fellow human being, especially when good things are happening to that person. I've seen this pattern play out in my life for very many years."
Juliana goes on to say: "There is a reason why God chose me out of so many and gave me this amazing voice and success that has come with it. There is a reason he did not choose you. 1. Because you don't have the character to carry it and handle the success that comes with it, 2. Because he has an individual plan for you."
She concludes: "I have found my plans, go and seek yours, I have also found my purpose in life. Stop wasting your time trying to hate on others. That hatred is poisoning you inside. Just because you want to have something does not mean it's right for you. God Bless You."
The message that is about to receive 1,000 comments is loud and clear to the 'hater' or 'haters' and interestingly, King Lawrence was on of those that responded to her post. "My Good Friend, It's good you finally tell them." Juliana immediately responded to King Lawrence by saying: "Thank you for being a true friend my dear."

Office Romance - Bina baby (35) was spotted giving Kasuku (29) a head and shoulder massage. Kasuku must have been suffering from some tension of sorts so he shared a light moment with Robina Mbabazi aka Bina baby, who had come in for her radio slot on Saturday.
The Dembe FM presenter did not disappoint as she gently moved her hands in tandem with Kasuku enjoying every move. You could clearly see that the stiffness and the tension brought about by his neck was loosening at least from his smile. Bina baby excused herself for a while leaving Kasuku staring at her behind with a big smile.
Meanwhile, during the Talk-and-Talk show yesterday, they were breaking down several roles that are played by promoters and music managers and Booking agent, Suudiman was the guest on the show talking about Macka Diamond aka 'The Money Goddess, a Jamaican artist who will be performing live on Valentine's day at Club Venom.

Paddy Bitama, the man who started comedy in this country has died aged 33.
He died on Saturday afternoon at the cancer institute, Mulago Hospital where he had been brought after his health condition deteriorated further. Paddy is one of the three founding members of The Amarula Comedy, a group he left after 11 years. Paddy, later formed his own comedy group, Amazon which he abandoned to join politics.
"Dear friends, Paddy Bitama has passed on," Messe noted on his wall.
Sorry for our brother Paddy Bitama who passed away this evening. So bad, may his soul rest in peace, " Amooti wrote on his wall.
Bitama's body will then be taken to it's final resting place in Mitala Maria, Masaka road on Monday.

Updated: Comedian Paddy Bitama is dead. He died this afternoon at Mulago hospital where he had been admitted in a critical condition.
Paddy tried setting up his own comedy group, but the good plans didn't work out as planned. Being the pioneer of comedy in the country, he also had bigger plans of setting up a Comedy University, but the illness has affected all this.
Before falling sick, Paddy had embarked on his political plans of contesting as Kyadondo North MP in 2016, but looking at his condition now, it's left to be seen if he will still pursue those plans. Paddy had been with the Amarula family for eleven years before quitting to join politics.
Still on his political ambitions, Paddy Bitama tried to contest for Presidency in the year 2010, but his academic papers could not measure up. Being a comedian though, it wasn't easy for him to be taken seriously as most of his efforts were continuously treated as comedy stints.

First things first. This evening, Bobi Wine and Cindy were appearing on NTV during The Beat program with Douglas Lwanga, the show host to premiere their 'Dilemma' video which they did with Jamaica's Mr. G. 'Dilemma' was among the tracks that Mr. G did when he stayed around town following the massive 'Akalimu' Charity concert.
In the 'Dilemma' video, Cindy is torn between two guys; the uptown boy (Mr. G) and the Ghetto buoy (Bobi Wine), she doesn't know who to give her fruit. In the video, Cindy is on a big bed with white sheets armed with two pillows (Mr. G and Bobi Wine) letting you know of how she is failing to make a choice between the ghetto youth and the uptown guy.
"I'm in a dilemma but don know the truth..I like two guys and tour them cute, one uptown one is ghetto youth, mi wonder which one I go give this fruit..." is a line off the track.
Bobi Wine says that of the top female artistes, he could have worked with Iryn or Juliana, but then again, he opted for Cindy who in the end delivered.
As the song comes to the end, Cindy does the dilemma bit as Mr. G does his thing till it fades.

The Tusker Project Fame judge, Juliana Kanyomozi is top on the list of artists to look out for in the next 12 months. Though she is good, Juliana is a talent that has to be watched in 2014 following the King Lawrence issue.
Having set the region alight with her track 'Nabikoowa' on falling out with Amon, the dad of her son, Juliana is now showing us that she is not just any type of girl jumping around and looking pretty but actually has some thing in store for her fans.
"2014 fasten your seat belts." is a message off her wall while in studio busy recording her latest music which is likely to have a track to do with King-Lawrence. Our artists have a tendency of releasing music based on situations around them.
We've seen this happen in Bebe Cool's 'Agenze' after Zuena left him, Chameleone's 'Abayuda' when Weasel and Moze Radio left his Leone Island's Crew and many more.
Now, given Juliana's vocal ability, that statement should not be taken lightly especially in the cirlces of fast rising female stars like Irene Ntale, Fille Clear and the old guards alike. Iryn Namubiru was one of those who responded to her post by writing; "Fastened."
Meanwhile, 2013 was an amazing year for her as she sums it up:
"What an mazing year it's been for me. And I thank my God for it. I've had a couple of milestones some of which I won't mention here. My dream came true when I finally had my 'Upclose and Personal' concert which was a success. Thanks to the fans, sponsors and my team who always leave me humbled by the love they have for me, I salute you all. And were I haven't been perfect, I apologise for being human. Happy and blessed 2014."

Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema has revealed her new year's resolution.
"This year, I want Allah to lead my way, I want to do the undoable, I want to reach for my goals, I want to be a better WIFE, mother, daughter, sister, friend, TV presenter and baker."
The busy mom of three literally wants to be better at everything which is common for most people around this time of the year, but what caught our attention was the message for her critics.
"But above all, I want to silence my critics and I know with God nothing is impossible, so help me God." Being the NTV Life Stories host, Zuena expects some people out there to criticise her show like they have done anyway, but she has managed to pull through.
Just recently, a Monitor journalist, Connie Nankya, criticised her show but Zuena's hubby, Bebe Cool, dealt with her 'personally'.

These were Moze Radio's words then: "Chameleone, Chameleone, Chameleone...u almost killed my brother...u beat up Weasel in Rouge...u kidnapped a man from Masaka..n now you are telling the whole world mbu yo wife scared a thief so much dat he set himself on fire!!!! Joseph Joseph..I hope u still remember wat I told u...stop living dangerously...obudde bugendelera... meaning that time is rushing, its high time you acted your age"
However, these two made up publicly on new year's eve at Sheraton Hotel, Kampala. During the Battle of The Champions, Chameleone was supporting the Goodlyfe Crew.
Tuesday, 07 January 2014
"Soldierz bar will officially open on 25th January, 2014 come let's celebrate in style, Wandegeya Vanilla city," Moze noted on his wall.
Soon, those with an appetite for fame will be on the look out for these bars and restaurants owned by celebs. In Wandegeya, you could be served by Moze Radio and once you happen to be at Garden City, Maurice Kirya could be at your service with The Sound Cup rolex.
And, when out of Kampala and heading to Naalya, Big Brother fans and Sharon O music lovers could easily blend with Blue Ice Bar and lounge adjacent to Quality Supermarket in Naalya.

His lover, Iryn Namubiru is pretty excited with the new year so far. "And the best News 2014 is; he is out of Intensive Care Unit, My God has never failed me!"
More information on his condition was availed by fellow workmate and also NTV news anchor, Josephine Karungi Musisi.
"To answer the much asked question in my inbox...Gabriel is doing so much better, I'm sure one of these days he will take a selfie to just to show you that soon, he will be on his feet. Your support has been overwhelming. I'm sure his family and Gaby himself are thankful for you. Keep praying."
With Gabriel having been down for over a month and Nancy Kacungira crossing to KTN TV in Kenya, there has been a new anchor only identified as Mabel trying to bridge the gap.

The drama kings, King Lawrence and Ivan Semwanga are done with their holiday and are already off to South Africa after causing a lot of social mayhem. "The rich gang is out of 256, anybody can now take over," King noted on his wall.
Having visited all top hang outs in the city, King and Ivan wrapped up their holiday with Club Venom last night doing what they do best, and as you can see, they just dashed to the airport there after. They must have had their luggage in car boots, because, they are clad in the same clothes they were in at Club Venom.
This has been the most interesting season ever that saw King hang out with Juliana at Serena in all forms. His explanation that nothing went down landed on deaf ears, but then also, Juliana came out to put this on record that whether you believe it or not, she is best of friends with King Lawrence.
Then the beating up of Zari's sisters by Ivan was the epitome of madness that left Zari very bitter and terming him a disgrace, in fact, her tweets indicate that they are yet to reconcile following the beating.

Like Father, Like Son.
Chameleone's seven-months-old son, Amma Christian Mayanja is a proud owner of a ''Cadillac Escalade'' courtesy of Santa Claus. The power wheels Cadillac has a working FM station and rear sound boosting speakers that will transmit hits like 'Tubonge'.
It's suitable for ages between 3 to 5, but with Amma less than a year old, it's yet to be seen if he will enjoy the ride. It comes with a 12-volt battery and charger.
''You just won yourself a brand new Cadillac Escalade son with love from Dad,'' Chameleone wrote as he shared the shots on instagram.
One fan said to him that: "You're a real Dad," and his reply was: "Our joy lies in seeing the future bright."
Sunday, 05 January 2014
Jose Chameleone, Ivan Semwanga and ex-con Meddie Ssentongo together with former HB Toxic member, Helen Lukoma were among those in attendance. The birthday girl was clad in a white short outfit with a beaming smile.
Early in the day, the birthday girl sought services of a top celeb make-up artist, Zipper Atafo who does his thing with a passion. She then went to Guvnor to ensure all was moving on as planned.

South African based Stella of Star QT Fashions might not have come to Uganda for the festive season like her fellow 'ba-summers' who include; Zari, Ivan, King Lawrence, Adam and Katsha among others did, but this has not stopped her from having fun.
Stella, who represented Uganda in the Miss Asia Pacific World pageant shared some of her hot shots that most of her followers seemed to enjoy at least going by the comments that followed. "Sun bathing, 2014 looks very bright," Stella wrote.
Then came curvy Desire Luzinda in a two piece swim suit who was being taught how to swim by her daughter. However, the daughter had a fun day as her mum was simply drowning and taking in too much water as she tried to stay afloat.
"My daughter teaching me how to swim but what she does most is laugh at me." Well, Desire, you just have to follow her instructions as one is never too old to learn how to swim and before you know it, you two will be competing against each other, good luck.

On Thursday, Bebe Cool was reaching out to his friends and fans through his wall wishing them a happy new year. He also urged them to attack the showbiz like never before, do more charity and most importantly 'Think out of the Box', which was a positive message.
But in the midst of all that, one perturbed fan wrote asking why Bebe Cool was a no-show in Gulu on New Year's eve and yet all posters and banners that were displayed in the area indicated that he will be performing. Seven minutes later, one wrote: "A guy who does not turn up for his concert is so annoying, check on your weaknesses!"
This rubbed Bebe Cool the wrong way. He responded immediately; "It depends..., did you pay me?" Bebe was right though, because, it was a known fact to his fans and followers that he was performing at Casablanca with the Goodlyfe that night, so the issue of him being in Gulu at the same time was out of the question.
Because of that, all hell broke loose on social media but Bebe just pulled out and left his 'army' to deal with it.

Ivan is around and not in South Africa. He has actually deleted posts from his wall that indicated he had already travelled to South Africa to 'chase paper'. Communicating from Bulenga, he noted that; 'The Untouchables- Ivan&King are partying till dawn' seemingly not bothered about being 'on wanted' for having beaten up Zari's sisters and a son to tycoon Ntake.
Zari is very bitter and these were her words following the incident; "You're a disgrace! Can't believe you beat up my sisters like dogs. Who the fcuk does that? That's barbaric. Insecurity in a man is a total turn off and an ugly trend."
Trouble stemmed from the tycoon's son who tried to squeeze juices out of Zari's butT as Ivan watched from a distance, but Zari was quick to push him away well knowing that this could be bloody if the father of her three sons spotted them. Unfortunately for her, he had already seen them.
Shortly after, Zari came to join her hubby who was then seated with his manager Kato. ''You told me that was Zahra's boyfriend,'' but before Zari could explain, Ivan tried slapping her in the face but she has been through this quite a lot and now learnt how to deal with it, she ducked and the person who was next to them suffered the ducking consequences.
Fearing to nurse red cheeks, Zari took off and the rest of Saturday night clubbing was spent through tweets. At the time, the young man had sensed trouble, so he dashed to the washrooms. The doors were forced open as he had taken a bit long and yet other club goers wanted to use the washrooms.
This was when bouncers descended on the young man on the advise of Ivan and dragged him out of Club. Zari's sisters were equally called out of the club to explain their side of the story but looks like it was not adding up, they were all slapped.

In his follow up post, Mc Kats has stood by his decision and he says, we're getting married: "Happy new 2014 and I will get married coz we both not drunk or under 20 years."
On Dec 22, Kats proposed to Fille and four days later, Pherrie Kim, the Guvnor publicist was ambushed in one of the corners at Guvnor when his lover went down on one knee with a ring asking for her hand in marriage, she had no choice but to say yes after all, they had been dating for over a year.
Now, fast rising star, Fille Clear, who was proposed to by her music manager, MC Kats is coming up with really weird marriage proposals as summarised in her post:
"These niggers who have brought a trend of proposing to ladies in Clubs..why don't you wait when they have just walked into the toilet and slowly open and be like..Baby, I want to spend the rest of my life with you even in hard times like these."
Well, we hope at this rate, we won't see an influx of guys hitting ladies washrooms with marriage proposals, but for as long as there is no poo involved.

During the Battle of Champions press briefing at Alfredoz bar last year, Bebe Cool was asked which Goodlyfe song he loved most and he said it was 'Zuena'.
The year 2014 has seen the Goodlyfe Crew of Moze Radio and Weasel make peace with Chameleone and Bebe Cool. Now this simply means more music coming out of these top artistes and not just any music, but we could see a collaboration between Bebe Cool and the Goodlyfe, The Goodlyfe and Chameleone something that was next to impossible.
Bebe Cool loves the way his wife Zuena dances to the 'Zuena' song when it's playing in club, so this could be one of the awesome collaborations coming out of this union.
However, there is still more that needs to be done for Bebe Cool to come to terms with Chameleone and Bobi Wine. During the Battle, Chameleone's remarks were evident that he still had issues with Bebe Cool.
Then, during the celebrations to usher in the new year at Sheraton hotel, Bobi Wine was like; "Bad Man Tawagira Bisiyaga..." clearly pointing at Bebe Cool's recent remarks on the gay-bill that is before the President.

The days of Ivan Semwanga being the only man with a Lamborghini on the dusty streets of Kampala are numbered. SK. Mbuga, a Ugandan businessman based in South Africa popular for his four gas-guzzling Hummers seems to be pretty much aware that they are no longer the in thing, so he is upgrading.
Leila Kayondo's lover, Mbuga is in the process of shipping in two powerful sports vehicles that include a metallic gray Lamborghini Aventador prompting this comment from one of his close pals; "Kyakabi Nyo Kyakabi" a line off one of Leila's songs, 'Awo'.
During the Abryanz Style and Fashion awards, Zari's husband warned SK. Mbuga and Meddie Ssentongo that when he is around town no one should talk, because, when it comes to matters of money, he's better than them all as he gave out shs5.5m t the organizers.

"Quick shout out to my exes...I just wanna thank you all for paving a way for me to find my magnet, my Scorpio, my husband, my LA...if you hadn't let go...I'd never have found such happiness!!"
Those were Pherrie Kim's words after finding her Mr. Charming in February 2013. Last Tuesday while at Guvnor, Lubs, as she fondly calls him went down on one knee and made a romantic proposal to her, which she gladly accepted.
Preparations for Kim to introduce Abdul to her parents kicked off right away, and by Thursday, December 29, 2013 fellow publicists; Nickita of Venom and Lisa of Club Silk along with other babes were ready for the do. Clad in black and white 'busutis', high heels and walking like catwalk models, they made her event memorable.
However, most of them were very uncomfortable in this type of outfit as they are always donning micro minis. This was further revealed by Pherrie while thanking them for a job well done.
"..you could have been anywhere else but instead you chose to spend the entire day in the hot sun in those very uncomfortable gomesis, which makes you genuine friends and great caring human beings. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and will forever hold each one of you in my heart."
One of them was over heard saying: "I have tripped in this damn azz gomesi all day, my feet hurt, I've sweated buckets all so you could have a fantabulous day." Meanwhile, Pherrie says its now going to be babies, babies and more babies as they prepare for the big white wedding.

Earlier on, Radio and Weasel said: "2013 has been a wonderful year for us, musically, socially and financially. We've hit marks, we've accomplished goals, we've grown stronger and bigger and best of all, we are alive." The Goodlyfe Crew have also made peace with Bebe Cool, and to confirm this, they performed together on Boxing Day.
On Thursday, there were reports that Weasel had beaten up fast rising star, Khalifa Aganaga, but the boys were quick to clear this; @Some people are posting on social networks that Weasel had a fight with Khalifa, it's not true and it will never happen, keep on dreaming though.
So far so good, and we only hope it remains this way as this is only the first day of the year.

This was Zari's birthday message; "Mansions come and go, cars come and go, men come and go, money comes and goes but my sons, that will never go. I will always be their mother no matter what! Happy 9th birthday Raphael aka Didi. I love you son."
The couple has the money to rent out Wonders world so their son can have the coolest birthday present but given the timing, most of those venues had been fully booked for the new year's eve celebrations.
Then came the musical chairs game, Ivan was the last man standing.

Socialite Judith Heard's nak3d photos found their way onto the internet on Dec. 31, but, she seems not bothered about the controversy based on her reaction below:
"Love yourself! Forgive yourself! Accept yourself! You are YOU and that's the beginning and the end - no apologies, no regrets."
These are self shot pics that might have leaked from a stolen or misplaced phone and in that way found their way to the net. Judith Heard joins the likes of Bad Black and Cindy who have had nud3 photos leaked.

Big heart, nice hearted were some of the words that Zari's close pals told her when she paid a courtesy visit to M-Lisada Orphanage in Nsambya just a day before Christmas. The South African based socialite was in the company of her three boys; Pinto, Didy and Quincy.
It was a special Christmas gift for the kids as Zari helped with the preparation for the X-mas food and later donated an assortment of items worth millions of shillings to the kids. Some of the items donated were; sanitary pads, sugar, biscuits, rice and matooke.
Zari was glad she had put a smile on their faces. The kids equally paid her with acrobatic performances and rare dancing skills in appreciation of a job well done.

Club Venom was the venue for the first ever Sushi party that was held on Boxing Day. The Luo Ambassador, Coco Finger, was the main performer for the night, though at some point, he lost his 'stamina' as he tried out 'pakachini' strokes with a babe who was clad in a blue micro mini dress.
The party went on till the wee hours of the morning though the Sushi babes were a no-show. The word Sushi was a problem to many including the organiser. On inviting revellers, he kept on saying 'Mujje tulye sussi'. Matters were made worse when some babes were over heard saying that they were going to attend the 'Sushu' night, others shishu.
The Most Outstanding Female Model, Doreen Kabareebe was among those that attended.

Bebe Cool's first born, Alpha Thierry Ssali has turned 10 today. Zuena is so happy as she reveals in her message communicating the good news.
"On this day 10years ago, I gave birth to my 1st born, motherhood was new to me and I was very young, but this angel of mine came out with love and we immediately bonded that I forgot the outside world, how time flies. I'm also in shock you've brought joy into our lives. I love you Alpha Thierry Talik Ssali. Happy 10th birthday love."
In her message, Zuena seems to be in shock that her own child has brought them that much happiness and joy, was it supposed to be otherwise now that she gave birth at such a tender age.
Alpha has grown into a young happy little man and not small any more. A few days back, he was the emcee at the Kids end of year party that was held at Kololo Airstrip.

In his post, Bebe Cool adds: "Big up to Andrew Mwenda and the President for the move on the anti-gay bill, let's find another way we can tackle that issue to save our culture." In the bill, it's proposed that those found guilty be sentenced to life imprisonment though Bebe Cool is of the view that they should handle them with kids gloves.
In the last 48 hours, most of his posts have been about the gay bill. First, he was against the President signing the bill fearing that Uganda will lose millions in donor aid for not tolerating minorities, and now, he has even proposed 'better' ways of dealing with the problem.
"My advise is start by mixing all single schools because then you will have given a student in adolescence an option," Bebe concluded in his latest gay-bill post.
Below are some of the views from respondents:
"Rasta ekintu kino Okikwasizza manyi."
"Bebe Cool is confused. He talks of saving our culture and yet he's the same person who does not want the President to sign the bill!! Are you trying to say that our culture is for homos? wake up Rasta!"
"I think Bebe Cool had better leave issues of the generals to the generals, let him concetrate on music."

Christopher Thomas has spoken out on Princess Komuntale's selfie pics that have been making rounds on social networks. In the pictures, the Princess is seen taking shots of herself in a bathroom mirror while clad in a two piece lingerie.
"I'm being blamed for pictures of Ruth I don't know why and would never do that to the women I married." Now, the way Christopher comments leaves a lot to be desired, so one asked him how many women he has married so far?
Christopher added that he has never seen these photos before and that he cannot share the body of his wife. On the other hand, Ruth says; it's Christopher behind this irrespective of how the intimate pics got to the sources that eventually leaked them to social networking sites.
Meanwhile, the Princess was in Fort Portal on Christmas day. She had her Christmas prayers from the very church they exchanged their vows with now her ex-husband, Christopher Thomas.

Earlier, on Thursday, there was a video clip of Katsha eating Sushi off a model that went viral with many wondering what was going on, but he just wanted to give a sneak peek of what was in store for the night.
During the night, fellow 'ba summers' who included King Lawrence, Ivan Semwanga and Zari did not grace the party even after several calls and reminders. One of the posters had Zari as the main person to grace the event though they needed to have paid her $1000, but this wasn't the case. Zari did not show up.
The Sushi party was running concurrently with Bebe Cool and the Goodlyfe show in Kiwatule, so some revellers opted for the Sushi models as opposed to eating goats meat that was being served by Bebe. Radio and Weasel, but they were disappointed to find that even the models were a no-show.
May be all this could not have come to the lime light had it not been for some videographer, Haruna Sebagala who dragged Katsha to Kabalagala police station demanding for his dues. Apparently, he had been paid shs 500,000 with a promise of receiving the balance during the Sushi eating party.
Unfortunately, this didn't happen. The videographer, with the help of other bouncers who were equally demanding for their pay plucked off the 'KATSHA' customised number plates from the Premio he was driving and later dragged him to police.
At the police station, Katsha got into an agreement to have them settled but after staking his Iphone5. A statement off one of the Sushi party pages states that, it was history being made, and that it will be an annual event.

Juliana took off a moment from her busy schedule with new found love, King Lawrence to thank her super fans who made an x-mas cake for her.
"Thank you my super fans for my cake. You guys are truly amazing and I'm blessed to have you in my life. Merry Xmas Team Juliana. I will revenge so be afraid."
One of her super fans was Judith Heard who had this to say: "Merry Christmas my beloved. As we know, the year 2013 is soon out and 2014 in; may God bring back to you the best memories of 2013 and take away the troubles you went through in 2013; above all, he may make your desires, wishes, dreams undertaken, projects become realities in 2014.
Meanwhile, Dec 24, was her mom's birthday. "I can't find words to describe how much I love you and adore you mum. I'm so thankful to God for you, Happy Birthday Abwooli."

Now, Bebe Cool has also come out with his stinger that clearly defines his stand on homosexuality. The'Tozimba Mutima'singer is also worried about the millions Uganda would be losing for failing to tolerate minorities. Below is his post in full:
In his post, Bebe Cool made it clear that, he does support gays and we don't have a right to condemn them either. This facebook post was made on December 24, 2013, but by yesterday, it had over 500 shares, 1,000 likes and 5,000 plus comments. He signed off by wishing both gays and non gays a merry X-mas.

On Sunday, Desire Luzinda took to facebook to answer questions from fans.
The questions were more to do with her personal life. The session lasted for at least two hours and twenty minutes before she went off. The questions kept on coming though.
How old are you? – You just killed me. Anyway, there is no crime in being old, we definitely have to grow unless you wanna die.
How do you keep in shape year in year out? - I try to eat less, take plenty of water and supplements. I also do a lot of walking.
Marriage Status? – Marriage is just a ring but I’m happier than most married people and that’s what matters most. However, when Mr. Right comes around, we could hit it off.
Do you ever go to church or spare sometime and thank God for who you are and what you have? – Everyone has a God they serve and I don’t have to invite the world to see that I’m going to church. God knows our hearts. Psalms 26:2.
Can you get a show on TV to connect with your fans? – I love TV and I’m one of the best talented presenter Uganda has, but everything has it’s time. Talent is in born.
At about 3:35pm, the time of her last response, the mom-of-one was done trying to respond to her fans who were still asking pertinent ones like What happened to Seya? and now that the mini skirt has been banned, what next ?
Monday, 23 December 2013
Fearing the mini-skirt scouts to trail her, Juliana was spotted putting on a blue short that was relatively long enough but also comfortable for her new found boo, King Lawrence, who is on a rush mission to ‘explore’ the diva in the few days he’s around.
The two were at Serena Hotel enjoying a cool breeze as she sipped her lager, though, she would have loved to be clad in something more revealing than the short she was putting on.
"So this anti-pornography bill that will ban mini skirts, what criteria will be used to conclude that this is a mini skirt and this is erotic behavior? and by whose standards? Just wondering," Juliana wrote on her wall.
Meanwhile, the couple spent a greater part of this afternoon resting in their hotel room while listening to hits from Tupac and Beyonce. King Lawrence earlier dedicated ‘Kibaluma’ to his ‘haters’.
Now those excited about the new love birds have even changed the ‘Kibaluma’ lyrics to reflect the current situation; “Buli Koyambula, Kibaluma Buli Kalungi Kosaza Kibaluma…”
At this rate, all these dudes from South Africa will hook themselves a female musician. First it was Ivan with Sharon O, Leila and SK Mbuga are in the thick of things. Just recently, Phina Mugerwa of the Masanyalaze fame lost her luggage while coming from South Africa after checking on her boo, Kenneth Muyiisa, and now, Juliana Kanyomozi with King Lawrence.
We wonder who is next because Katsha should equally be looking for one now that his Sushi party is around the corner.

Matthew, Farouk, The Truth, Ojok, John, Sharon Male, Enosh, Derrick, Patience, Rachel, Robert and Roeunah. The grand finale best performer was none other than Lucy from Fort Portal who did the late Brenda Fassie's 'Wedding Day'. She got the audience and the judges dancing and singing along.
It was even worse for Bebe Cool who shed a tear while Lucy performed. ''She is the greatest performer Uganda can have,'' he said. Meanwhile, after the show had ended, news came in that saxophonist Isaiah Katumwa had decided to take Lucy on, something that brought a smile to many of her fans who were still getting to terms with her not making it to the cover band.
NTV's Aggie Konde thanked the judges; Bebe Cool, Jackie Chandiru, Isaiah Katumwa and Phad Mutumba for weathering the storm from social networks. The show will be back next year.

Hours after Juliana made headlines for the new found love, now, fast rising star, Fille Mutoni Clear got engaged to her manager, Mc Kats yesterday and preparations for the wedding are already underway.
The celebrated MC shared the good news and wedding plans as the two showed off their engagement rings. "Done....oooh 2014 wedding meetings," Edwin Katamba aka Mc Kats noted on his wall.
At 28, he has five kids from different mothers. He was earlier engaged to Tracy Asiimwe with plans of marrying her, but looks like all this has changed from the time he started managing the 'It's not about money' singer.

Initially, many thought it was a case of a celeb taking a pic with a fan which was kind of okay, but then, the two were again spotted together at Zari's White party with Juliana taking red wine and King sipping white wine. Realizing that the photo sessions had become too much, King tried to cover up:
"Bumped into JK and asked for a pic, " a comment that Juliana and Ivan plus 77 others liked. Seconds later, Juliana replied: "Yapppp..I seem to bump into the King a lot. Hmmm." This 'bumping' into each other has caused some eyebrows to raise though some raised eyebrows like the radio presenter won't like this a single bit.
Juliana seemed not to like the way the radio presenter was making her the topic for the day, she quickly shot back saying that she does not choose friends based on position in society. Here is her full post:
"I just heard a radio presenter up in arms because Juliana is friends with someone who apparently shouldn't be. He made a statement that: Juliana Princess waffe Omulamba, Now to you Ssebo, what does it matter whether i'm a princess or not when i'm choosing my friends?"
I don't choose friends based on position in society. I will choose who I want to be friends with and I will not have to explain to no one. Juliana concluded in her stinger to the radio presenter that:
"So to you radio presenter, I'm not going to change my friends because you don't like them, get used to it and move on."
We hope this is not another case similar to that of Sharon O. King Lawrence and Zari don't see eye to eye as he was one of those who were very happy after Zari pulled out of her relationship with Ivan after finding them with Sharon O, she even blessed them. King Lawrence even went to the extent of photoshopping a customized number-plate in the name of SHARON O which he placed on some Range Rover.

Katumba Shaffic aka Katsha, a South African businessman and the man behind the first Sushi Party is in town. On Thursday, he was part of the team from South Africa that was dishing out cash to revellers. He was last spotted on NTV a few minutes back during the Xpozed show with Kats MC as the host.
On the show, he talked about the Sushi party that will be held on Boxing day at Club Venom. On that day, models clad in two piece costumes will be lying on platforms all decorated with sushi, a Japanese cuisine for revellers to enjoy.
While on telly, Katsha said that some people call him 'Young Money' and others 'Presdo'. It's yet to be seen just how much money he will be giving out at his own party after dishing so much at Zari's Ciroc Party.
He's never short of drama, first he's a 'Havard graduate', next he takes a video of himself inquiring about a Vertu, one of the world's most expensive phones and before boarding to Kampala, he told his close pals that he had acquired a Maserati Ghibli all in the name of justifying his self imposed titles like 'YMCMB' and the likes.
Insiders say, models are busy flooding him with their pics in all poses, so that he can enroll them for the first ever Sushi party. watch this space!

First it was Mun G who performed his hit song; ‘babes bees looking gooood.... and flashed the mic for the audience to sing along at the 'Sejjusa' concert but the response from the 180 revelers was not loud enough.
Then came yesterday, the music doctor was faced with a similar fate of a low turn up of fans who came to witness the Battle between him and Nigeria’s Davido. Trouble stemmed from the KCCA security operatives and the police who cancelled the show after the organizers had failed to liaise with them on the closing time.
It was later resolved that the show was to take place and at about 5pm, Chameleone communicated using his wall; "KCCA Has sealed it up!! we got the green grass and the green light, Davido in th blue corner, Chameleone in the red corner."
Unfortunately, at the time, most show-goers had kind of switched. At about 11pm, just one hour to the end of the show, one could think that the show was yet to start. Meanwhile, those who turned up were enjoying hits from Chameleone and Davido who performed; 'Gobe' and 'Skelewu' among others.
Earlier reports of cancelling the concert are widely responsible for the low turn up of the Club sponsored event and to a smaller extent, some could be saving for Christmas which is around the corner.

Last Thursday was Zari's 'All White Ciroc Party' at Guvnor. Most of the guests came dressed in white except for a few who didn't get the dress code right. Entrance fee was 30,000/- for general happiness and 1m to have a table. Zari was smart and many seemed to like her dress though some had issues with her hair. She came driving her orange beast.
The Goodlyfe Crew of Moze Radio and Weasel were among the performers for the night. The White party was dominated by 'Ba Summers' from South Africa and UK. It was then time to reward the best dressed. Victoria Nakabuye's passion for fashion made her win shs1.5m which the MC demanded to count to verify if it was the right amount, but this money did not get to winner somehow.
The girls then mounted a seach for MC Kats to give them the money or an explanation but he was nowhere to be seen. After a few hours, through his wall, Mc Kats responded to the allegations that he had vanished with the money claiming that he is not a thief; "When rich men want to play, you give them a game of their worth, and as the person behind the game, I have to be paid..by who, when how much that's your business, but you have to be paid."
His posting did not seem to address the situation either. Short of that, ciroc vodka was flowing non stop as babes who could strut their thing well ended up getting some of the free money from the Ba Summers. Among the notables were; Kasha, who will be holding his Sushi party at Venom on Dec 26, 2013, King Lawrence who has been inseperable from Juliana Kanyomozi from the time he landed, SK. Mbuga and Zari's husband, Ivan Semwanga.

Chameleone has urged his fans to turn up in large numbers for the War of Titans between him and Nigeria's Davido tonight at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds.
Security operatives from KCCA were last evening seen at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds, the venue for the 'War of Titans' asking the organisers to pull down the stage on the grounds that they had failed to liaise with police on the closing time for the show. However, looks like all that has been sorted.
This is what Chameleone wrote: "My 13 years music experience and God's will has broken many barriers and lifted me a height that when you look down to where it all started, I thank God, my family, fans and friends who have built a rock in me to challenge all odds."
This is another barrier he has broken and from Davido's last tweet which is not clear, he seemed to be equally perplexed by the developments, but this is all behind them and the show is on.
Chameleone concludes: "As anticipated for the fans, the time is here when together we are facing Davido, a comrade and celebrated African artiste as we represent the East Africa. Today the lion is roaring!!!"

The 'Basusi Bamenvu' singer was a few days back given a show that he will live to tell. Nince Henry was at Entebbe Resort Beach busy thinking of his next track whose theme was to be adopted from the beach circles, but as he was in deep thought, a video vixen came talking on a cell phone.
What disturbed Nince was the way this model was dressed. The girl was in preparations for a video they were shooting when she got a call. She then came and stood right by his side giving him an ample view. Trust this song writer and now singer, his next song could be; 'Bana Bawala Wat a Guan'.
While on phone, this model was talking to a male friend and letting him know that they were at Resort beach shooting a video. In this way, she thought, Nince could get her contacts or sign her up for his upcoming video, but he was like; Basusi Ba Menvu which means peeling bananas.
The 'Omukyala Ba Mukwata Mpola' singer was later seen putting on his black hat and walking towards his silver Mercedes-benz and sped off to Kampala.

This year has been quite a blessing for Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema and she is not hiding it if the last post on her wall is anything to go by.
"I'm a happy woman, Allah, Thanks for listening to my prayers." Like the saying goes, behind every successful man, there is a woman and Zuena is the woman in Bebe Cool's life. Zuena is justified to celebrate. In September, she kicked off with her latest TV job at NTV following several years of being a house wife.
With Zuena Pastries receiving so many cake orders at this time of the year, being on the payroll of one of the top paying TV stations and now, hubby is shs300m richer! what more can one ask for other than being thankful to her God.
Meanwhile, after the judgement, Bebe Cool said that he was not happy with the amount because it was way below compared to what he spent on medical bills. Bebe added that he won't appeal the decision as he is not prepared to rotate in courts.

Leila gave one male fan a night to remember when she invited him to join her as she performed at Club Venom. The song she was performing was none other than, 'Awo', her latest blockbuster hit.
Seconds into the dance, the man seemed to be taken up as Leila who was clad in a red short and a black top started gyrating seductively against his groin. It was not long when she invited former Bad Black's hanger-on, Halima, who hit the dance floor with her rare strokes.

Bebe Cool is all smiles after the highl court in Kampala awarded him Shs380m following his being shot at by a policeman in 2010. Initially, Bebe Cool had asked for Shs800m to cover for the period he was bedridden and operating on a wheel-chair.
Bebe Cool was shot twice in the thighs by a one Alfred Achikan at Centenary Park as he walked towards Nakumatt Oasis with members of his Gagamel Crew.
As they walked, they came across night patrol policemen who were exchanging bitterly with a couple they had found in a car. Bebe asked: "What is your problem?", but at the time, one of the Gagamel members' was exchanging bitterly with David Oluka, a police cop and even tried to disarm him.
This was when Alfred resorted to shooting in the air to try and disperse them, a move that did not scare off the Gagamel crew members who were charging at him, he fired several bullets at close range, and that was how Bebe Cool was shot in both legs. His bodyguard Alan Masengere, Kaiza and Kabobyo were seriously injured in the process. The rest of the Gagamel Crew who were still standing took off in different directions.
Bebe Cool was rushed to Nsambya Hospital and later to America for specialized treatment. On coming back, he was so grateful to the President for the financial support he extended to him.

Google Trends has released it's year end Zeitgeist report for Uganda with Bobi Wine ranking number one under the 'Most Searched People' for the year 2013.
Using his facebook profile, Bobi Wine who could not hide his excitement wrote: "So according to Google, I'm the most searched celebrity in Uganda, I'm honored." Chris Brown and Rihanna followed in that order and the 'Ndisa Butti' star, Bebe Cool was fourth. The top ten list did not have any more Ugandans.
Kim Kardashian, Messi, Obama, Konshens, Beyonce and Nicki Minaj are the other top names in the 'Most Searched People' list. In the just released lists, Google Trends also featured the top institutions with Makerere University at the top followed by Uganda Revenue Authority.
Then came the list of 'Most Searched News Sites' with New Vision at the top followed by Daily Monitor and Bukedde. Red Pepper and Weekly Observer were also among the top ten.
Ugandans were also interested in knowing about Love, development and the Internet but when it came to Health, not even AIDS was number one as Stress took the number one position followed by Health in general, Ovulation, bloating and then AIDS.
Schizophrenia, a disease that the 'fake' interpreter at the Mandela funeral claimed to be suffering from came in at number ten.
Short of that, other top searches in the year were more to do with English football, death or unique situations. Among the dead are Eriya Kategaya, James Mulwana, Stephen Malinga and UBC's news anchor, Susan Namasaba.

The Super Star Green X-mas party was held on Sunday at Kololo Airstrip. Parents spent quality time with their kids as they had fun playing all day long. There were camel and horse rides, bouncing castles, water slides plus lots of entertainment. Kid-friendly restaurants were all over and of course lots of fizzy drinks. The weather was good for the water games.
Zuku TV provided free video games, Toto magazines were on the house for those who felt like reading though, they were obstructed by crying kids who had got lost from their parents. There was a Zoo section that was manned by officials from Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC).
In the zoo, you could find a lioness, leopard, ostrich plus a rare species of a monkey among others. The kids who were daring had photo sessions with a huge python, of course with the help of the UWEC officials. On stage, Bebe Cool's son, Alpha was the MC and occasionally pulling rare strokes as 'Kokodiosis' played in the background.
NTV Life Stories host, Zuena Kirema had a stall selling cakes from her Zuena Pastries as Judith Heard and her twin daughters' were seated in the same tent. Later on, Zuena and JH together with their kids joined Alpha on stage with a huge cake from Zuena pastries that was served to the kids.
Meanwhile, a host of other holiday makers were busy taking photos seated or stepping on Judith Heard's Bentley or the 'Big Size' Hummer2 that Zuena came driving. Bebe Cool was busy with Talent XP, so he could not make it. Coco Finger was one of the entertainers for the show.

When you see Zari in her Lamborghini or other posh rides that she cruises around, one could easily think that she can't get off that horse, but the mom of three has not forgotten where she came from, so once in a while she comes back to Uganda to do things she can't do in South Africa.
She recently shared a picture on her wall while preparing rice and chicken thighs not on a gas plate or cooker but using a charcoal stove, something she did with ease and enjoyed. This is what she had to say: "Fame and glamour aside. I took to our back kitchen to make some chicken stew, rice and Matooke."
In the picture, you could see a down to earth woman lighting up a charcoal stove, a role that is normally undertaken by maids or house helpers. Meanwhile, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, something that women who know how to cook enjoy over those that don't. Zari seems to know that well and this could be one of the reasons Ivan considered as he was dating her.
It's okay to look pretty, but even better if you are able to hold it down physically, sexually, mentally and domestically just like Zari is doing it. So ladies, being good in bed and just feeding your man on fast foods from KFC and the likes might not be a complete package.
Zari is in the country for her Ciroc White party that will be held at Guvnor on December 19, 2013.

In the same period, we’ve seen Chameleone reconciling with the Goodlyfe duo of Moze Radio and Weasel who have been at war since 2008 when they left his crew, Leone Island. Five days later, Bebe Cool also made peace with Radio and Weasel. This happened in a span of hours after battling with them musically. It should be recalled that these are the guys he once beat up for composing the ‘Zuena’ song. Zuena is Bebe Cool's dear wife and the mom to his three kids and will do anything to protect her, Connie Nankya, will soon tell her story.
During the Battle of the Champions (Bebe Cool's) press conference at Alfredoz Bar in Bukoto, he was asked which song he liked most from the Goodlyfe Crew, he said; 'Zuena' attracting wild cheers. He added that he enjoys the way she wiggles to the song as it’s being played in club.
Isn’t that amazing! Meanwhile, every December 26, Bebe Cool performs at Kiwatule Recreational Centre and what is more amazing, this time around, it is Radio and Weasel drumming up support for the show in the radio advert.
“Tondekka Ekiwatule Embuzzi yangeeee People are you ready! Kiwatule So…Magnetic..Yoyoyo Bampita Weasel Manizle from the Goodlyfe Tugenda Okubera Ekiwatuule alongside Gagamel Tubakube Omuzik,” is the ad doing rounds on several stations. Interestingly, Bebe Cool does not feature anywhere in the ad and yet he is the main act.
This will be one show not to miss as hits like ‘Amaaso’, ‘Magnetic’, ‘Bogolako’, ‘Kasepiki’ and 'Zuena’ will be played live on Boxing day. On that day, the former rivals will even sample some of the tracks they’ve recorded together.
However, some fans are still skeptical about the whole move. Last Sunday, The Goodlyfe Crew were to perform in Entebbe, the last leg for the Battle of Champions but they were a no-show, so, many will only believe this hype when it happens.

Zari is in the country ahead of her Ciroc White Party that will be held at Guvnor on December 19, 2013. She flew in with hubby and kids. During the style and fashion awards that were held on Dec.12 at the MTN Arena in Lugogo, Zari emerged as the winner for 'Best Female Dressed Celebrity'.
In that category, Zari had been nominated with Leila Kay, Sheila Gashumba, Helen Lukoma and Judith Heard. Zari's hubby, Ivan Ssemwanga was still in a jovial mood after turning (30), he gave shs 5.5m to the team behind Abryanz Collection, the organisers of the awards.
Other winners included Meddie Ssentongo as 'Best Male Dressed Celebrity', Sylvia Owori taking the 'Life Time Style Icon'.
Doreen Kabareebe did not spare the category of 'Most Outstanding Female Model' not after showing off her football skills when she took full control of the ball around her thigh area. Football lovers paid her back by voting in large numbers. Bad Black's lover, Maysean, tycoon SK. Mbugga and Club Venom, Silk and Guvnor publicists attended.

Ever since Zuena kicked off with her latest job as NTV Life Stories host, there has been growing criticism, both negative and positive from a section of viewers.
But lately, many have come to her defence including her hubby, Bebe Cool Ssali who did not have kind words for a one Connie Nankya, a former Publicist for the collapsed Pioneer Easy Bus and a journalist with the Monitor newspaper.
"Today, I will comment about my wife's Life Stories TV show following a very unfair article from Connie Nankya which seems to be personal.'' Bebe Cool is so bitter with the writer for choosing to attack the person of Zuena than criticising the show. A case in point is when she brings up the issue of how Zuena responded to questions from the beauty pageant panelists way back in 2001.
It should be noted that Connie Nankya and Zuena were contestants in the same beauty pageant, and both were among the top five, but Zuena has come out 'bigger and better'. Bebe Cool is of the view that this is the reason behind the 'unfair article'.
In a wall post that had 88 shares, 755 likes and 822 comments in just the first one hour, Bebe Cool unleashes his wrath on Connie by letting her know of how Zuena is way better than her; armed with two jobs, three kids, a husband compared to her who used to drink stagger and pass out.
"Keep off my wife because if you were better than her, you should have been doing Life Stories," Bebe Cool concluded with his post that has left many on his side for coming to the rescue of his wife but also insisting that, he should get someone to manage his facebook profile.
Bebe Cool spotted Zuena on the night of the pageant in 2001 where she was a runner-up. At the time, she was in her S.4 vacation. In 2003, she conceived their first born, Alfa. On Sept 22, 2003, when Zuena was six months pregnant, Bebe Cool called her at the Registrar's office for their civil wedding.
On the other hand, Connie Nankya is a Mass Communication graduate from Uganda Christian University (UCU), which she defended recently over the s3x tapes, wondering why the UCU name was more pronounced than the three students who committed the act.

As the year that appears to have been difficult for Iryn Namubiru draws to a close, The singer has turned 32 today the Friday, Dec 13, 2013. She started off by singing the birthday song to herself before others joined her with congratulatory birthday tweets.
The 'Nkuweeki' singer has every reason to celebrate after going through a series of set backs.
First, it was the brutal attack by her ex-hubby last November, then in May this year, she went to Dubai for a show that turned out to be a nightmare when authorities there arrested her on suspicion of drugs. The singer was held for 20 days in Japan, but, she was later cleared.
Iryn lost her Dad shortly after returning from Japan. She then travelled to France to check on her kids who had equally missed her love while she was held up in Japan. The 'Begombeko' star had to return to Kampala ahead of her 'Tebiba Bingi' album launch whose attendance was kind of affected following the Nakumatt Westgate Attack in Nairobi.
But a day before the album launch, as Iryn was engaged in a series of meetings with different organisers to ensure that her launch was a success, URA officials stormed the meeting venue and demanded that she pays up on her tax obligations for the 2011 'Birowoozo' concert, which money she did not have at the time, they ended up impounding her Land Cruiser Cygnus. It was later released when she made good.
It was a bit too much for Iryn because matters were even made worse when her Begombeko song got plagiarized by a top Madagascar artiste to come up with her version of 'Walawala'.
In all this, NTV news anchor, Gabriel Epenu, her latest boy friend was there for her through thick and thin but just three weeks back, he was involved in a serious accident that left him critically injured. Regarding his condition, Iryn says: "He's getting better and we continue to pray for him everyday."
Iryn has dedicated this day to loved ones' gone too soon and the sick.

Chicken lovers in Kampala are in for a treat after fast food restaurant KFC opened shop just in time for Christmas. The Bugolobi based branch was opened on Tuesday at 3pm. Maurice Kirya was one of the main celebrants.
The second branch will be opened in January 2014 at Acacia Mall right opposite Capital FM offices and by the end of 2014, Kentucky Fried Chicken will have a total of five restaurants with a branch in Entebbe as revealed by South African entrepreneur, Simon Schaffer following the launch of the first outlet in Kampala.
Just last Sunday, the fourth branch of KFC in Nairobi was opened. Meanwhile, the restaurant had very long lines on it's first day of operation though some were ranting about the prices being 'high'. The KFC 21 piece bucket is going for 99,000/- which precisely is 4,750/- per chicken piece.
Most chicken outlets in Kampala have always had issues with the size of chicken coupled with high prices, a thing that KFC is likely to address. Short of the 21 pieces, you can still do with a 'Variety Feast' going for 65,000/- that include 9 pieces of chicken, two burgers, french fries and a coke.
In other news, early this year, Steers on Kampala road closed and it was later taken up by another entity whose menu pricing was way above average, but then again, they also closed for renovations with a promise to resume operations by November 15, but up to now, there is a 'Closed for renovation' sign hanging at the door.

She's no stranger to looking her best when it comes to flaunting curves.
But instead of showing off some cleavage, Juliana Kanyomozi opted for a stunning open back animal print as she attended the Tusker Project Fame Grand Finale in Nairobi on Sunday.
The 33-year-old ensured her back could be seen while supplementing it with black leggings, but once the show was done and Burundi's Hope was declared the Tusker Project Fame 6 winner, it was party time. In one of the pics, the 'Nakazadde' singer is armed with a wine glass.
During the Grand Finale, she completed her look with ankle strap heels and black leggings, but as you can see, they were later pulled off to reveal more of her slimline figure.

Last Friday was the Battle of the Champions between Bebe Cool and the Goodlyfe Crew which Chameleone attended. However, the 'Tubonge' singer opted out after a misunderstanding with the organisers and instead went for the 'Battle' which was taking place in the same vicinity .
It's on record, Chameleone is not on good terms with any of the Battle contenders but he sided with the Goodlyfe Crew that has his young brother, Weasel, confirming that blood is thicker than water. The Goodlyfe Crew performed all their songs and at some point, their MC announced that they were done, but Bebe Cool still had over 40 songs which he performed up to 4:00am.
“I am a prime witness to Ugandan Music! And I love to see it grow! Is the reason I scout able talent. I am proud to be part of the Weasel and Radio Team! I had a blast at the Battle. I was your biggest believer before the world accepted that ...talent! Even when you fail, you are a winner to me, but am also very glad that you have never failed,” Chameleone wrote on his wall.
To confirm that he believed in the Goodlyfe Crew before any one believed them, he held an 'RIP BebeCool, 100%Fool' placard sealing his support for his brother and his 'good friend', Moze Radio.
Meanwhile, the Goodlyfe Crew did not show up for the Entebbe show claiming that they were not paid their balance, something that let a number of their fans disapointed after gracing long hours in the jam on Entebbe road. Bebe Cool is now asking, who is next, could this be the reason Chameleone behaved that way, only time will tell.
Monday, 09 December 2013
Busy Signal performed for three hours doing hits like 'Reggae Music Again', 'Step Out', 'D.O.B' and when it came to the 'I born as bedroom bully, bedroom bully fi di gyal pickney..' the VIP section had to bend over for as long as the song was performed.
"This is one of my biggest shows, I love Uganda. I'm contemplatiing buying a hiouse to make Uganda my second country, I feel at home. People said a lot of things that I was not coming but here Iam singing live music and not miming."
After reggaelizing Uganda, he took to his wall to pour out his love though the Entebbe show equally excited him. History created in Uganda two nights sold out "tonight" 35,000 people tightly packed in venue 20,000 angry fans outside can't get in! Entry fee was doubled and people was still paying to get in... "God bless 400 police to provide escort service back and forth to the hotel! Omg God bless the Turf!"
Monday, 09 December 2013
Fans who spent several hours in the jam had to again wait for longer hours just for the stars to show up but as it turned out, it was a no-show for the 2013 BET nominees. The show had to go on anyway but not as planned, so it was Bebe Cool’s live performance VS. Goodlyfe music on CD.
Bebe Cool is no joke because after giving D’Banj a run for his money, the Goodlyfe Crew had it rough on the Friday show. The dynamic duo had more hits compared to Bebe Cool but not even that coupled with Moze Radio's voice could save the situation, the duo ended up quitting the stage way before the 'Battle' could end.
It's not clear if it was their voices that had given way or it was the songs that were few compared to Bebe Cool's but they had to leave the stage for Big Size somehow. Moze Radio and Weasel, using their facebook profile have issued an apology to their fans explaining why they did not turn up.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we didn't perform at the Battle of champions at Resort beach tonight because the promoter failed to honor his part of the contract! We had agreements that both parties were supposed to follow!! The promoter failed to pay up the balance of the agreed fee and we therefore couldn't't perform for free!! We have decided to take this up with the police because we feel our fans have been cheated; a case of breach of contract/fraud has been opened! The law will take it’s course! We hope Bebe Cool was paid!! We apologize to our fans that have been inconvenienced by this occurrence.
Well, most of their loyal fans have sided with them though some insist, the Goodlyfe Crew were to perform just like Bebe Cool did because they equalkly do not have the proof taht Bebe Cool had been paid the full amount. Interestingly, they were demanding for a balance, so it could have been fair for them to perform and then pursue the course of direction they are taking now.

The 8-week show that kicked off on Oct.13 finally came to an end on Sunday, December 8, 2013 with Burundi's only contestant, Hope taking the Kshs.5m and a recording contract with Sony music.
Hope beat other finalists that included: Tanzania's Hisia in the fourth position, our very own Daisy Ejang who finished in the third position and then, Kenya's Amos and Josh who finished in the second position.
This year, all the finalists came out of the academy with their latest singles fully recorded on both audio and video, but from Hope's sneak peek video, you could tell that it was win material. Yesterday, the dreams of Nyambura becoming a millionaire were shattered when she was evicted alongside with Patrick from Rwanda.
Performance at the grand finale had previous winners like Ruth Matete and Davis Hillary Ntare performing plus a host of previous TPF contestants.
Earlier, Judge Juliana wrote this on her wall: "We wind up yet another successful season of TPF. Like I said, TPF6 has had some of the finest talent I have seen in TPF history and I'm proud to have been apart of it. As we count down to the finale tonight, I wish all the finalists the best of luck. You all deserve to be there. Thank you East Africa for all the support."

During the first 30 songs, the dynamic duo of Moze Radio and Weasel did their best at losing their voices as Bebe did his thing while seated.
The Battle started taking it's toll on the duo as their voices could not be easily heard after performing several of their hits. They later left the stage for Bebe. This was when the ‘Tozimba Mutima’ singer who was performing with his band engaged a top gear leaving his fans and some of the Goodlyfe’s fans yearning for more given his good skill at live performances.
During the press conference, Bebe Cool was bitter that a foreign artist was performing on the same day of the ‘Battle of the Champions’, an event he terms as the biggest event to have ever happened to the Uganda Music Industry.
His prayers indeed paid off because the venue for The Battle was filled to capacity as Busy Signal concert had a relatively smaller crowd, may be because, there is another show by Busy Signal tonight at Speenah Beach in Entebbe.
''Welcome back from the long awaited concert of this year, The Battle. I would like to thank all my supporters for the love and respect you all showed me, I wish I could pay you back. I also want to thank Radio and Weasel for the out standing performance they put up yesterday, thank you all Ugandan fans for choosing the battle, you guys made us proud. Who’s Next?'' Bebe Cool asked.

"Our nation has lost it's greatest son. Our people have lost a father. Although we knew that this day would come, nothing can diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss," South African President Jacob Zuma said in a televised address.
President Obama referred to him as the "most influential, courageous and profoundly good" people to ever have lived. "He achieved more than could be expected of any man." He went ahead to order that the flags be lowered to half staff in honor of Mandela.
On completing his law degree in 1942, he joined the African National Congress (ANC) and for 20 years, he was leading a non violent campaign against the South African government. He decided to change strategy to armed struggle, this is when he was arrested for plotting to oust the government by violence. He was sentenced in 1964 to 27 years in prison. On Feb 11, 1990, he was released and a year later, he was elected the President of ANC.
At the age of 75, Nelson Mandela became the first black President of South Africa between 1991 to 1995 when he retired to concentrate on a number of human rights activities.
Celebs have since been paying their respects to the fallen leader and some of them include:
Rihanna: "You made your people proud!! We'll always love you for it!"
Bill Gates: "Every time Melinda and I met Nelson Mandela, we left more inspired than ever. His grace and courage changed the world. This is a sad day."
Whoopi Goldberg: "I want to give the world a hug I was told Mandeba just passed. Nelson Mandela R.I.P. Time for a well earned sleep. Condolences to his family."
Larry King "Sad to hear about the passing of Nelson Mandela - he was the greatest figure of the 21st century - a fascinating man."
Mike Tyson "I'm hearing about Nelson Mandela's death while on African soil in Oran, Algeria. Sending prayers to Mandela's family."
Tributes from our very own stars:
Iryn Namubiru: "RIP Nelson Mandela. I continue to pray for our loved ones and all those fighting to get back on their feet where ever they are!In God's Name."
Bobi Wine: "Rest In Peace, Father of Nations."
Bebe Cool: "With deep sorrow I would like to announce the departure of the greatest black African freedom fighter who just passed on to heaven a few minutes ago, Nelson Mandela may your soul rest in eternal peace. Uganda and Gagamel will always respect you."
Juliana Kanyomozi - "R.I.P baba Nelson Mandela. What a legacy. I remember an interview you did where the host struggled to get you to take any credit in the anti - apartheid struggle. You kept giving credit to others instead. You are a hero and one of the world's greatest people and yet yo humility and modesty always shined through. That is wat I'll remember most about you."

"The convoy is ready. 4 Hummers, from SK Mbuga 1 to SK Mbuga 4 and 1BMW convertible and a Range Rover Sport as a birthday gift for my love. It's swagger holiday," The tycoon wrote while inviting one of his close pal.
Just recently, he gave the BMW convertible to Leila after adding a Range Rover Sport to his fleet. All is set for Jan.01.2014 which happens to be Leila Kayondo's birthday on turning (24).
The two-in-one celebration is a combination of the house warming and his love's birthday more so, happening on new years' day has been branded as the 'Swagger Holiday.'
It's a new year, new crib and the birthday girl will also be the main performer on that day. The former Dream Galz member has had a few collaboration songs that include: 'One Moment' with GNL Zamba and 'Hooray' with Jose Chameleone. 'Awo' is her latest single and is doing well on both radio and TV stations.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The on and off model is in the running for 'Best Outstanding Model' after being recognised for her role in the industry for the last one year.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 'Badilisha' singer took to his wall to share the good news.

I will support you all the way, Congratulations Abba Marcus Mayanja for your achievement. Hard work will always pay. The Sky is the limit."
And to the actor, Chameleone wrote: "A Child is a reflection of their Parents and we are a proud family again! I Congratulate you Alfa Joseph Mayanja for the certificate you have earned out of your outstanding performance at your school play." The 'Tubonge' singer went on to thank Greenhill Academy for their efforts.
Last Sunday was Bukedde's Embuutu Y'Embuutikizi and Jose Chameleone's 'Badilisha' song was voted as the 'Song of the Year' taking with him shs 5m prize money. The singer who sprained his foot a few weeks back did not disappoint his fans as he performed on crutches with one leg heavily bandaged.
It's me again with the Song of the Year, 'Badilisha' as awarded by the Vision Media Group. Chameleone revealed that this was the fifth award he was getting in just this one year.

South Africa based Ugandan fashion designer, Stella Nankya of the Star QT label is the first Ugandan to represent the country at the prestigious international beauty pageant taking place in Seoul, South Korea today.
Stella has been in Korea for the last three weeks undergoing talent management training that includes; beauty management, social activities, dance, vocal and martial arts among others. The pageant is two years old.
Stella has reached out to all those who have supported her. "To all those who have supported me from day one. Thank you so much, I appreciate it."
A few days back, Stella was joined by socialite Zari who is also the Miss Asia Pacific World Ambassador and the two beautiful ladies have had a lot of catching up to do. They hit the clubs together, tried out all sorts of Korean cuisines plus visiting various attractions in South Korea.
Stella and Zari have to find time to chat with their family members back home of course taking into consideration the time zones in South Korea and South Africa.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Last year, the battle was between Bobi Wine and Bebe Cool but this year, the Kokodiosis singer will take on the 2013 BET nominees and East Africa's dynamic duo of Moze Radio and Weasel. Appearing on NTV The Beat show, Bebe Cool said that if he is paid Shs200m, he will take the boys on.
In the previous battle, Bobi Wine came using a Pioneer Bus while Bebe Cool used his Hummer to the venue with a military pick-up clearing his way. Bebe Cool won this particular battle and just like Golola, he has the 'music belt', so he will be taking on the Goodlyfe Crew come Dec 6, 2013 at Kyadondo.
During the press briefing ahead of the music battle, Bobi Wine amused those who were around that he could not speak before his vice president, Bebe Cool.
"You wanna hear from me, that's no protocal, I'm the President and Bebe Cool was my Vice President when he was in Fire Base, he never resigned and I have never discharged him, he never wrote a resignation letter, so I consider him still my Vice President so he has to speak before me, just follow protocal, thank you very much."
Looks like 'The Battle of the Champions' is becoming an annual event at this rate.

The ex-con moved in a fleet of three posh rides that included two BMW's and a blue Range Rover with 'STIG' customised registration plates. Other Street Jam sponsors included Club Beer and Bukedde FM. The Africa Entertainment Awards Best Male International artist, Jose Chameleone, Rema Namakula and Geoffrey Lutaaya were among the artistes who thrilled fans with their hits.
Meddie then made his way back to Kampala and on Sunday evening, he was at Club Venom for the Beach Bar busy enjoying shisha as burgers and fresh beers were flowing endlessly.

September is also a very special month for Bebe Cool as he will be performing live in the Kokodiosis Concert starting Sept 6, 2013 at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds followed by Mukono Satelite Beach on Sept 7 and finally Golola's best punching area, Freedom City on Sept 8, 2013.
Just yesterday, he was in Rwanda performing at Kigali Gikondo Expo Grounds after taking time off the Talent XP role as a judge. He will be part of the line-up of artistes to perform at Radio Simba's 'Ekiggunda Ky' Owmaka' in Nakivubo Stadium today(Sept 1), an event where pregnant women and children are not allowed.
As part of his 36th birthday celebrations, Bebe Cool will wrap up the eve with what he is terming as a 'bottle drink-Up' at his Kiwatule based apartments. Not so sure what he will be taking after denouncing the hard drinks a few weeks back, but HBD anyway!
Saturday, 31 August 2013
Since the fight was not going to be live on any of the local television channels, fans had to make their way to Freedom City to see who will go back in the coffin that Tugume had arranged. Unfortunately, seconds into the game, it was all over after Golola's first jab sent the UPDF man flying all the way down.
Earlier on, Golola had assured his fans that he will thump him to the extent of forgetting his number in the military. We are yet to establish that though it seems to be a more practical one as compared to going back in a coffin that Titus had prepared for Golola had he won.
This was Golola's first fight with a Ugandan kick-boxer. So Golola is not a joking subject after all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NTV's Talent XP is a search for talented singers, musicians and dancers which is currently on in Masaka. The 'Kokodiosis' singer, Bebe Cool, Jackie Chandiru and a one Faad were the judges as of last week.
This week, the judge-line up has shot to four with the latest entrant being former Obsession's member, Michael Kasaija of the Kombat Entertainment, a company that does talent search, scouting and promotions among others.
Bebe Cool who happens to be one of the judges noted on his wall that: "Here is your chance if you have any musical talent, be it an instrumentalist, I will be moving all over Uganda as a judge for NTV's Talent XP. So people out there who have always wanted me to help musically, kindly, don't miss this one chance."
The TXP show will start airing this September on NTV with the hosts being Expozed Kats Mc and Robin Kisti of the Login fame. It replaces Hot Steps that was only looking for dancers to now include; singers. Shs20m is up for grabs for the winners.
Meanwhile, yesterday evening during the Prime News Live, NTVUganda unveiled a new state-of-the art studio with modern digital equipment and broadcast experience, however, you could tell that it was the first time the new studio was in use as images could appear still for some good seconds before the live broadcast could resume.

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

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

UOWD - On This Day - Ugandan long-distance runner Stephen Kiprotich (24) who hails from Kapchorwa District has won the men's marathon championships in Moscow getting his second gold medal. Kiprotich zig-zagged his way to the finishing line beating the Ethiopian duo, Lelisa Desisa and Tadesa Tola who were more than 20 secods behind him. The prison warden clocked 2hr:9min:51sec to add a world marathon gold to his title.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fugitive Bad Black has resurfaced on the social scene days after her partner in crime, Meddie Ssentongo was released. In her latest pics, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black was in the company of her son Jonah who was busy looking at car mats outside a supermarket.
This was a day before EID when Bad Black shared the above pics on her wall. In the pics, some of her pals were telling her of how she looked preggie, others complementing her on the curves and some insisting that she should come back to Uganda.
Bad Black said: "I do not miss Uganda,"meaning that she won't be back any time soon unless when authorities catch up with her now that she is on the wanted list for having jumped bail. Bad Black was sentenced to 4 years for her role in the Shs11bn that was embezzled from her ex-lover and business partner, David Greenhalgh.
Meddie Sentongo is now a shadow of his former self. The ex-Luzira housemate was spotted cruising a silver RAV4 in UAR series, a car he could not drive before he was jailed.

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

Some people could hardly recognise her at the last Miss Uganda Pageant that was held at Kampala Serena. Dorah was forced to explain her boldness in the bald move, and this is what she had to say:
"Simply having a heart and "a passion for care"... Sometimes it's just sacrificing what we love the most that can bring a smile and change to thousands of hearts!"
This very move got another ex-beauty queen commending the cause. "Wow Dorah, God bless you, this is a very beautiful thing to do, I lost my grannie two years ago from cancer, much love," Salma Nassanga wrote.
Dorah who resigned her job to concentrate on charity activities under her Dorah Mwima Foundation adds that: "I was inspired by Stefania Ferrarrio, a 20 year-old-model, who spots a bald head advocating for cancer awareness."
On the 24 Aug 2013, there will be a celebrity football game at Lugogo Grounds-Legends and proceeds from the game will be channeled to the pediatric patients at the Uganda Cancer Institute - Children's ward. Bebe Cool, Peter Miles, Salma Nassanga and Ex-Blu3 member, Lilian Mbabazi are expected to play.

You just love them the way they are..!" So with those few words, nothing can come in between these two.

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

Just yesterday, we told you of how Weasel's girlfriend has no problem with how many kids Weasel has because they had no role to play in being brought to this world. Those words must have been words of encouragement to some babes who are now proud to say who the babyfathers are.
Another cutie only identified as Diana Nasuna is remembering the pain of labour almost two years later and this is what she wrote while sharing the daughter's pic with close friends: "At around this time two years ago, I was starting to get labour pains only to give birth to you many hours later...you're my destiny...love you lots Queenley Nakintije. I'm so proud and glad to have you making two years soon."
Diana is a Goodlyfe diehard fan and amazingly, her daughter has Nakintije on her birth records. For the record, Nakintije is Moze Radio's last name and just in case you're not aware, he is also the father to former Blu3 star, Lilian Mbabazi's boy. The Obudde star is believed to have 6 kids in total.
