By the look of things, we must say bye bye to PAM Awards. Scandals have hit the annual event and fresh info shows Tycoon Gordon Wavamuno has sued Pearl of Africa Music Awards (PAMA) management over money issues. URA has also directed sponsors to channel the entire sponsorship package to URA accounts.
This is because PAM Awards chiefs have not paid taxes since the PAM Awards started six years back. As a result, sponsors Telecommunication companies and East African Breweries Limited under their Bell Lager brand have demanded PAM Chairman Isaac Mulindwa and his group to account for the dime.
He has failed to account for it. Last year alone, ZAIN and EABL pumped shs 2 billion into the event. Shockingly winners have not yet been paid up to now and yet the money they are entitled to is less than 50 Million. The only expensive accolade is artiste of the year at shs 10,000,000/- and the rest are less than 3M each.
We have learnt that since the awards kicked off, tycoon Wavamuno has been funding the events on condition that they refund but this has not been done. ''He is bitter, he had an agreement with the Mulindwa's but they have betrayed him". They have to pay back, " a source told us.
Every company is now shunning the awards and if at all the awards will take place, then that will be on November 7.

Mowzey Radio was asked what his issue with Bebe Cool was in the Sunday Pepper and this is what he had to say: ''I respected Bebe so much until he broke that bond of respect when he slapped me in Club Silk. DJ Shiru played my song "Sweet Lady", I was happy, I went to the booth to thank him. On my way back Bebe Calls me, when I leaned to hear what he wanted to say, he slapped me hard across the face.''
''He apparently slapped me because it is the likes of us causing trouble between him and Chameleone. When I tried to inquire why he had to slap, they threw me out the club. Then at Palui Jose didn't want to go and so he asked us to go , that was around the time we had one big hit-Nakudata, when Bebe finished performing, they announced Weasel and Radio and the crowd started applauded.''
''Bebe waited for us when we were out in the parking lot, he reversed and almost knocked Weasel, he missed and hit the Golf that was behind, so we told him to learn to drive well. When he realised he could be reported by the owner of the car, he went to police and reported that Weasel and Radio had beaten him and vandalized his car, I was arrested and spent two days in prison, with Bebe telling me I would learn a lesson, It was Nyakaana who helped me get out."
However Mowzey Radio is also quick at saying there has not been any romance between him and Zuena. He adds that they are only friends and the friendship is brought about by Karitas who happens to be a good friend to both Zuena and Mowzey Radio.
Then one day at home, Mowzey Radio was singing Zuena jokingly and those who heard him mention Zuena in the lyrics assured him that if Bebe heard that song, he will be dead meat but because Bebe had broken the bond of respect ,we actually named the track Zuena, but that was not the original title, Mowzey added.

Goodlyf at Labonita
Goodlyf boys Moze Radio and Weasel TV of the Bread and Butter fame have bought themselves land worth 100million. The huge chunk of land is located near Victoria flowers that belongs to tycoon Gordon Wavamuno.
Last Thursday a deposit of 50% was made through Orient Bank and the balance is expected to be cleared in three months time. Looks like they are not just naughty boys. However the fans who attended the Theatre Labonita show last Saturday left the venue jeering at them saying they are pseudo artistes who use auto tunes(computer oriented tunes) to dupe the revellers.
On trying out a cappella of Nakutamani things just did not work out forcing one to say: "This is killing the music industry in Uganda, the musicians are going too digital and this is an appalling situation to the upcoming artistes who are likely to pick on the culture. This is very absurd!
How can the Goodlyfe crew rant back their fans? they should learn a lesson from Kanye West, Eminem and all other arrogant celebrities in the US who used to be shunned by their fans."

It has been cold nights for Bebe Cool but looks like that might be a thing of the past after being spotted in Masaka. Bebe Cool and Zuena booked in Zebra Hotel Masaka where they spent two nights together. Bebe Cool is currently on a Masaka tour that ends on 2nd August.
This is a blow to all Zuena suitors who include a telecom hunk, Eric Obua and Moze Radio. The pair is certainly back because while in Masake Bebe and Zuena banked all the proceeds from the show on Zuena's Barclays Bank account. Just last week Zuena picked Bebe Cool's Beat FM Oluwombo performance money worth 2 Million shillings.
Meanwhile with all that waiting for Bebe Cool other sources say he had gotten around with a Dembe FM Nyaru receptionist only identified as Christine. Watch this Space!

She once dated Karim Jean who was trying to date her and Juliana Kanyomozi and because she could not stand competing with Juliana, she pulled out.

Her first single dubbed ''Oli Wange" was released in 2006 and this was nominated for channel O awards in the Best East African Video category. She did not get the award but this boosted her ego.
Sunday Pepper's Angella Kateemu asked her that "You seem to have a hyper lifestyle, how do you handle motherhood? This is what she had to say: Actually I live three lives: The first and most important is being a mother to my three boys and their Dad. Iam a laid back and responsible person - for instance when I'm at home I don't allow anyone to cook not even the maid, I do the cooking myself on top of being a good cook. The second life is of a career woman - I own Brooklyn City College and a Cosmetic shop in Pretoria. I'm hands on , I run these businesses. Then there is the artist lifestyle, I act as a diva but Im not wild. I describe my style as trendy, up market and sassy.

Sometime last year Bebe Cool beat up a business man for touching his then wife and mother of two kids Zuena Kirema on the butt. Moses Esimu who happens to be a good friend to the family defended his action by saying he was only hugging Zuena.
Moses who sustained a cut around the eye as a result of the beating reported the matter to Jinja Road Police Station. The police swung into action and arrested the reggae star who in turn said that he was defending his wife from bad touches.
The Nakawa court is now ready to pass the verdict on the 24.Jul.2009. What is hurting the reggae star the more is that even the Zuena he was defending then has long dumped him making it more of a double tragedy.

The church function lasted 30 minutes and there after headed to Just Kicking in Kisementi for lunch.

Troubled local artiste and sexually malnourished musician Bebe Cool is nursing his wounds of sexual starvation by devouring campus babes. Bebe after languishing with exalted sexual starvation when Zuena dumped him like a hot potato and after being thoroughly thumped by Bobi Wine's Fire Base Crew, was on Saturday smoked out at Wandegeya's posh Akamwesi hostel, room C33.
He patiently waited for a gorgeous juicy babe identified as Sheila Ogwal, a B.Com external student at Makerere University. All this time Sheila had been attending lecturers and when she returned, the two deeply embraced in a sensual way before Bebe pulled away painfully wincing, because he was still hurting from Bobi's wounds.
The two touched orally for sometime before they headed hand in hand to Steak Out where they spent the best time of the evening together. Sheila wals all the time showering Bebe with intimate and wanton smiles as he held and gently stroked her hand, silently drooling over her apetizingly tempting body. The two later retired to some unknown location for more explorations.

The Ghetto Presidents house is on fire after Barbie learns of a UK lady with Bobi Wine's one year old son called Simon Kyaguylanyi. The mother of Simon Safina is in Kampala for a short holiday something that has left the ''first lady'' nursing panic waves in her heart. OMG snoops went looking for her and trust them because they met Safina who had to release this information.
Safina Mubiru a UK Citizen met Bobi Wine in 2004 when she had come for a short holiday and the two met at one of the music concerts in Kampala. In 2007 Uganda music promoter Yunus Sengo at his Upton Lane based Club 19A organised an Easter Fete and that is where Safina Mubiru met Bobi Wine for the second time and very quickly reminded the Gheto President of their first meeting way back in 2004. The Ghetto President was excited and moments later told Safina to call his number as it was seemingly misplaced.
The following day the Ghetto President called Safina being a Londoner she is to guide him around London and this Safina had no problem with now that she was on holiday. The Gheto Presidents hotel room became Safina's second living room. In the three weeks they were in the UK for the summer shows code named ''Fire in the City" he could fire me live and mercilessly. You can see the results (points at son).
When Bobi Wine left after three weeks it was so touching for Safina seeing him off at Heathrow Airport. A month later Safina realized she had missed her periods. This is when she knew she was pregnant. She communicated the news to Bobi Wine three months later.
Safina now wants a baby girl and she says she will hook up with Bobi Wine the next time he is in UK this month for some shows. The one thing Safina hates is when she reads papers and finds that the Gheto President is saying he has only two kids but I think he will now change whenever he is asked about his family.
Bobi Wine Speaks Out
He confessed in a phone interview yesterday that Simon Kyagulanyi is his and that he is doing his best to give his one and half year old son the best education ever. ''My home is very happy. My children are nothing to hide. Simon is my son and I would want to give him what he wants in life and ensure he goes to the best schools, " said Bobi.
''I request that Simon's mum does not bring rift in our family,'' Bobi Says. It is without doubt BOBI WINE. Look he is one of the few men who don't deny their off side children . Very few men can come out and confess such a thing. It takes bravery, courage and of course love to do such. Clearly Barbie is lucky to have Bobi as a husband. And for a wife to understand her hubby's mistake and embrace it, er well, we are lost for words. Wish you the best Bobi and Barbie and we know they will achieve whatever they want.

When men are asked their age they can even add an addition of two or three more to make them look older and mature but for the ladies if the same question is asked to the ladies, the answer given in most cases is reduced by five years. It now looks like a taboo to ask ladies their age. It is also a waste of time because they will never tell you the truth. The real ages of our female celebs is here by revealed.
Juliana K - She is probably the best female singer Uganda has ever witnessed. She has the looks, the voice and when it comes to her figure it is exactly any man would would want but what she doesn't have is age on her side. She started with Karaoke in 1996 at DV8 and Sabrinas and was aged 18 years. She claims to be 28 years but according to maths she is 31 years old as of now.
Iryn Namubiru - She always wants to look young and sexy but no way she can't deceive us anymore.In 1995 while appearing at Sabrinas Pub she revealed she was 22 years fourteen years down the lane she is claiming to be 28 years ahahahah that is a naked lie because maths shows she is 36 years. What an achievement.!
Desire Luzinda - One of the hottest properties on the music scene, has a butt like no one else with looks of a mature lady but nope. She claims to be 24, she is far above it, she is twenty four.

They are the hottest item on the music scene currently but if they are not careful their blistering careers are headed for the dogs. The two had been banned by Ange Noir a few weeks back and now the latest is them being banned from Club Silk.
This follows the incident in which Radio tore a poster of DJ Shiru at Club Silk who is also the club's disc spinner. As if that was not enough their manager Jeff poured beer on Yasin who happens to be a right hand man to DJ Shiru outside the Club.
Management was left with no choice but to ban the singers and their manager Jeff with immediate effect. Whether the ban is temporary or permanent is not known but what is clear is that they have at least been banned from appearing at the club.
