Highlights and Lead Stories from the Red Pepper Uganda's first Tabloid.
Friday, 30 December 2011
The trend of the music industry in Uganda is as divided as salt and sugar. We have artistes who can break the law and go away with it and others, even a slight mistake ends you in the coolers.
When they visit the local hung outs, they make sure that even the bar toilet cleaner recognises their presence. Below are the untouchables :
Iryn Namubiru - WOW! Arguably Uganda's best performer on stage but how does she do it? Well if you want to find out, do not miss her shows as she will treat you to some of the most erotic dances ever.
Recently she gave our very own VP Mahogany scrotal eruptions with her wet kisses which mesmerised him. We believe that her association with the top guns makes her ply her trade in music without fearing the likes of Nsaba Buturo.
Sheeba - She has done it all. Need we say anything from what we have seen in the tabloids of recent? Well, for all our readers who may not know who she is , Sheebah os one of the former Obsessions girls who has established herself in the music industry, she has established nude dancers (Kimansulo) and since Nsaba Buturo, the Minister of Ethics had banned it in all the pubs and bars, Sheeba nad group go on doing it in different hangouts in the city and the outskirts.
Does the law affect her? May be not.
Bobi Wine - Well known for his popular music and entertainment, has had so many controversies surrounding his life inside and outside his music. From members leaving the group to beefing with fellow artistes and most notably punching up Bebe Cool some time back in a music show organized at Nakivubo.
He goes on to confess on how he bribes police men to release him after committing crimes in his Mr. Money song.
Chameleone - The self proclaimed doctor has almost biffed up with everyone including his own father. What the Hell! Chameleone has fought in pubs, bars and several hangouts beating up on everybody who annoys him without forgetting his own brother, Weasel recently, snoops landed on him trying to hit Mowzey Radio.
Truth of the matter is that the skinny musician always goes away with it without being punished. We don;t know whether his behaviour is acceptable by our law or the law is soft on him.
Bebe Cool - The self proclaimed "Big Size" had the toughest year 2010. From crying out for Zuena, fights with Bobi Wine, Shootings and many calamities which caused problems to his life to Zuena's nude pictures in the tabloid.
Well like Chammeleone and Bobi, Big Size is also known for cat fights with fellow artistes and sometimes fans that he says provoke him. The big fish in the police will never come for him and if they do, it is only for a few questions and the dude is free.
Recently he has been so close to Sevo over the shootings at the Centenary Park. The big man went on to foot his hospital bills in Uganda and the USA where he had the operations. Do we need to say anything more about his size.
Ragga Dee - He calls himself "JJAJJA Wa Music" in Uganda. Ragga Dee is one of the most respected musicians today and this of course goes hand in hand with his works. Despite the fact that he hardly involves himself in cat fights with other musicians or fans, Ragga is also untouchable of sorts amongst the musicians.
When it comes to hanging out, the dude normally moves with a fleet of guys especially in popular hangouts and makes sure that everyone around notices his presence. Talk of being jjajja and recognition.
In this article: Sheebah, Iryn, Bobi Wine, Jose Chameleone, Bebe Cool, Ragga Dee

Drop the Guns - It is believed that beef has helped some of our countrymen attain celebrity status. From hard hitting songs to spending luxuriously so they can be seen as better, richer, popular, our celebs have done it.
It is more like what was originally in the western world was imported to our local scene. Some, beef on order to screen to attract media attention and stay in the spot light, others beef out of ego or bonkmates.
But regardless of the cause some of these celebs have beefed for long and today TGIF would like to see them kiss and makeup.
Chameleone Vs Weasel - These brothers Joseph and Douglas Mayanja can't cross paths without throwing venomous insults at each other. Weasel accuses his elder brother Chameleoe who he will never forgive for raping his (Weasel's) babe some time back. These blood brothers need to come to terms.
Juliana Kanyomozi Vs Iryn Namubiru - Sincerely, it has been over two years since these two aging sexy babes began beefing. Their anger against each other stems way back in the days when Iryn deserted the duo and their music career and went with Frank her French man.
But more than a decade down the road, these two have become established musicians and deserve to call a truce and move on. It is not that Iryn is responsible for Juliana's being unlucky in love! We dare Juliana and Iryn to reunite and stage a reunion concert.
Judith Heard Vs Zari Hassan - Another classic case of egos clashing! The two top city socialites disapprove of each other's status, beauty and wealth. Nalongo Heard and Zari once exchanged gut wrenching insults on Facebook.Whether they beef, slender Judith Heard will not grow as big (size) as Zari and the reverse is true for Zari. So bury the hatchet already!
Navio Vs Atlas - The two hunky rappers do not approve of the other's rapping skills and this sparked off their beef. Sometime back, they exchanged blows outside Club Rouge.
Their music is not as hot as they are because most of their fans who by the way are babes, flock their shows and scream their lungs out not because they like what they are wrapping but rather because these guys are hot.
Sharon Nalukenge Vs Helen Lukoma - Sharon O accuses her former groupmate Helen Lukoma of poaching on her baby's father, Ronnie Mulindwa. Whether the accusations are true or not, it happened a long time a go and both have moved on.
Besides, Uganda' representative in the just concluded Big Brother Amplified Sharon O has already tight marked her territory by giving Ronnie Mulindwa a baby boy. She needs to stop being insecure and try being friends with Helen again.
Bebe Cool Vs Bobi Wine -There's has grown from beef to biff and is a classic case of clash of egos. They were once the best back then when Firebase was just starting where they even had a collabo 'Funtula' attacking fellow singer Jose Chameleone.
They later fell out due to unclear reasons. Nowadays Bebe and Bobi can't see eye to eye without going for each other's necks because each claims he is bigger than the other but who cares, the fans know better. They forget that the two have egos.

Being a female is one thing, an upcoming artiste is another, but being an upcoming female musician is a bad triple fold! You see them flaunting their thinly clad bodies on stage as fans cheer on and you think to yourself: They have it easy!
Well they don't! The things that these girls go through in the name of making it to the top is a gory tale of rape, molestation, abuse, exploitation among others. From the time they think to themselves 'I should pursue a music career' to the time they actually have their songs enjoy air play and club play; they will have paid a big fee.
In most cases not just monetary! We explore some of the things that these girls have to go through all in the name of fame.
Horny Music Producers - Not so many of them will need a songwriter to begin with because when they are starting out, they are so ambitious they write their own songs and most times they have no idea how horrible they sound (no offense!) Armed with her lyrics and bad vocals (or good), they head to the studio.
If this producer does not come out to ask for sex, he will avail studio time only at night with the two of them in the studio. Some girls have been raped in studios in the wee hours of the morning.
S-exploitive Managers - When it comes to managers, they use the young upcoming artistes as their sex toys. This is the very reason girl groups like Wafagio have new members every three months. There are so many sex exploitation stories especially with girl groups which are managed by men. Sheebah Karungi left Obsessions because she was left out of songs and parts in the musicals because she did not give in to such advances.
Opportunistic DJs, Radio and TV presenters/ music controllers - It is one thing to produce a song; it is a whole other thing when it comes to have it play on Radio, TV or in Club. It is a hustle, you move from one Radio to another. And these work on the principle of 'Be good to me, and I'll be good to you!'
Being new most of these girls don't have money to give out to bribe their music onto the playlist. - So some of them or (most of them innocents) resort to the one form of payment that they don't need money for- God given form of payment.
Graby Sponsors/promoters - Now these are the people that hold the key to these artistes making any kind of money from their music. And like everyone on the food chain, they need their cut. As if what they make on the side is not enough, they want it too.
Frenzied Fans - 'There is this group that believes you owe them for being your fans. So they will grab you, grapple, touch you in embarassing places. Yet you don't want to snap at them because you have a small fan and you are trying to build it,' says one of the upcoming artistes.
Indecency - Do you ever wonder why HB Toxic's Hellen Lukoma and Nambi Brenda dress the way they do? Oh why most of us know how Margla dresses and we can't tell what she sings? Of late is like an unwritten rule that to get on stage to entertain, you have to dress in almost nothing.
Some of them have mastered the art of bad dressing to take attention from their bad singing or lack of entertainment skills. You will see many Lady Gaga clones dressed in bikini on events that are not at the beach.

Although feet are often considered as an unusual sex fetish, they can in fact be very sensual. Feet are incredibly sensitive, and playful couples will sometimes indulge in a little bit of 'footsie' play as a way to flirt with each other in secret, which makes it a little extra mischievous and fun.
So what is the secret behind this obsession?
Chris, an aphrodisiac - I love a gal who has nice feet. I admit I have a foot fetish. I love it when a girl gets her nails done, but a lot of girls don't really have nice feet. Its very personal but I always pay attention to a gals feet.
I like when a girl gets her toe nails polished. I once dated a ba\be for few months because of her feet. It's kind of sexual too, I love sucking beautiful toes during sex. Gals please take care of those feet and wear sandals to get noticed.
Charles, Sexy - Among the physical qualities I look for in a gal....the toes come first. She has to have nice toes. Beautiful toes are sexy and a turn-on.
Babes too love nice toes and feet:
Penny - Clean and beautiful feet turn me on. I first check out the feet before doing anything. If he passes that test then I proceed to the teeth for the crowning moment.
Juliet - Why would I want ginger like toes? Of course I want a guy who has beautiful feet.
Remember, any part o your body can be utilised in a way to enhance your relationship, your love life and even your sex life. Enjoy these tips or even create some of your ownt to make your feet a neat part of your day-to-day pleasures.

They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, but we all agree that there are basic standards that cannot be debated about. Some people are simply more beautiful than others. Today, we look at who Uganda's most beautiful female celebrities are.
They may not meet all your requirements but they have something special about them that sends men talking and that's their bodies. Enjoy optically!
Grace Nakimera - She is sexy with a hot body and photogenic. She has nice boobs to supplement the body although there has been debate on whether she had a boob job, but she says they are all natural. She dresses the body the right way. The 'Kawonawo' star exudes sex appeal without compromising intelligence and independence.
Mya Bagenda - She has that look and body every model craves for; tucked in tummy, right curves with no extra hips or buttocks. What the light skinned Blu3 singer may lack in vocals is well compensated for in the body and looks. Surely we are missing her from the music scene as she is out on maternity leave.
Zari Hassan - Few people can give birth to three children and still look as hot as Zari. The South African based singer is simply gorgeous with that body with that body. Her heritage involves many countries with her maternal grandfather being Indian with a Ugandan wife; her paternal grandfather is Somali with a Burundian wife.
Zuena Kirema - She is rated as one of Uganda's sexiest women. Her complexion makes her attractive with or without make up. She has graced more newspaper pages than any other woman. The thing is that this mother of two knows her strong supplementary points- her smooth legs and big eyes. Who can blame Bebe Cool for fighting to get her back?
Desire Luzinda - She is the embodiment of African 'sexiness' The singer has a hot body complete with extra butt-size and hips and a flat tummy. That added to her natural dark beauty, her first name suits her. She is definitely desirable and we now know why several tycoons are craving to have a piece of her.

A new year resolution is a pledge that an individual makes to achieve a personal goal, project, or the reforming of a habit. this lifestyle is generally interpreted as advantageous. It can also be objective someone sets out to accomplish in the year. Here is what our celebrities have set up to do this year.
- This year I am going to keep peace and harmony with everyone including my nemesis, attain all my goals I have for this year and live a better example in society not forgetting upgrading my professional skills and become a better public relations officer.
- Albert Enstein, "another definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again expecting a different result." This year , I intend to take positive steps in my life that will make me a better person, wife and mother. That in turn will help me bring positive change to the world I am living in.
- I don't have lots of resolutions...I just have to be in the right place at the right time doing the right thing...let God give me wisdom. Who needs resolutions when God has the last word.
- I didn't make any resolutions per say this year, but I do hope and pray for more fruitful and a happier new year
- I want to produce better music, broaden my fan base and be the best person I can be to my friends, family, fans and those very dear to me.
- This year, I intend to work hand in hand with the celebrity models and management team to make it to the top in Uganda and worldwide. I am gonna do my best.
- To love God more not that I haven't been in love with him but to love him big time this year and continue with my afro music.
- My resolution this year is to buy a plot of land and build a mega house on it aftyer I fullfilled last year's of buying a car.
- This year, I want to do more music and hope to open up my own fashion house. I want also to do some charity work and then have more fun

There are things money can buy and those it can't. For instance it can get you the most expensive producer and song writer but cannot buy you a hit song.Some musicians are born and such are the talented type.
Others are made through learning music in schools and universities but currently in Uganda, there is a new breed of those that want to buy their way to the top charts. TGIF today unearths those 'artistes' who have no art per say and are using more money than talent to get a song.
Zari Hassan - Zari is without doubt the biggest Ugandan musician, who rides cars that are fuel guzzlers and cost a fortune. Although she masquerades as a singer, many people know her as one who pays that her song be played in club as she and her hubby dance away leaving their revellers to stare in disbelief.
Despite the media publicity her songs have not made it to any local charts. You want to know about Zari, It will be either about her showbiz lifestyle and wonder bum that her music.
Angela Katatumba - This supposed R&B songstress is the only daughter of the Honorary Consul of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, H.E Boney Katatumba and Gertrude Katatumba. Her parents are undoubtedly wealthy people and some of their dime and investments they have shared with her.
Although she claims to have started singing at the age of six, she has failed to command a really big following. Not recording for the best studios and advertising her songs has brought her a hit.
In fact she is known more as the British Council ambassador of climate change a role she should concentrate on and forget music if you ask me, seriously.
Mickie Wine - Back in the day, Bobi Wine injected dime in his brother Mickie Wine's hope of becoming a fully fledged singer. Year later, who knows Mickie for music and not being Bobi's brother?
Collabos with big artistes like Kenzo too have not helped him. It should be recalled that months ago, Bobi wanted to throw him out because the fella was \wasting' his money and not coming up with a hit.
HB Toxic - The former Obsessions babes should have remained in the group may be they would still be seen as singers. The group that comprises Helen Lukoma and Brenda Nambi has struggled to impress save for their sexy stage outfits.
Thanks to Talent256 whose manager makes sure they get to perform at high profile concerts and events as well as do collabos with established singers aside from the much publicized.
Henry Tigan - Suudi Lukwago, the Boston based owner of music promotion company Suudi Entertainment, was the one that brought Henry Tigan to the Ugandan Music Scene. And into his music. He did collabos with international stars like Marlon Usher but Tigan still didn't give Ugandans that song that never leaves their lips.
Though the two later fell out Tigan had already failed to use the money that was pumped into him to make it to the top and has since been forgotten.

CELEBS BY DEFAULT
Every famous person has something that steered him or her to stardom-whether good or bad. TGIF, snoop Rowland Nkahebwa brings you some of you favourite big names on the social scenes and what they could be without what made them famous.
Gaetano - Big Brother - He was probably the first person to bonk live while in Reality show Big Brother Africa season 1. He romped with South African housemate, the gorgeous Abby. From that moment, a then unknown, clean shaven Gaetano Jjuko Kagwa sporting a channel O beard became an instant hero.
The crowds that welcomed him at Entebbe airport has never been rivaled to the extent that the President was forced to ask his security operatives whether a new rebel group had sprung up suddenly in the middle of the city or a new political party headed by (Gii-tano as he called him).
He later invited him for dinner at State House. He has since got lucrative jobs with big TV and radio companies. Well if it wasn't for his romping prowess, he would be another unknown lad in Kampala that you wouldn't turn to have a second look at when you meet on the streets.
Barbie Kyagulanyi - What is Barbie's claim to a celeb status? Because she is Ghetto gladiator, Bobi Wine's wife. Could Ugandans have known known her had it not been her hubby's music talent; absolutely not. Where would she she be? Probably married with five kids in her district of Ntungamo.
Blu3 (Lillian, Chandiru and Cindy) - They were heralded by music pundits as one of the talented group of girls to ever grace the music scene. And rightly so because all the three have gone on to forge a serious music career.
But the question is; where would they be had it not been the Coca Cola pop stars talent search in 2004? One social critic told us; "When the three girls came, were first unearthed, you could hardly believe they could make it in music. They were talented but hardly the chics you could easily market basing on appearance."
Where would they be? Probably, Cindy would still be in Tororo where she was picked. Lillian and Chandiru would also be unknown party animals in the city

The likes of Big Eye, Eddy Kenzo, Ronnie Banton and others won't like this. Singer Toolman has opened a war against artistes who date (or rather) bonk sugar mommas. The singer posted on his wall;
"I pity these artistes who fall for women (bamuvabulaya) who even no longer go in their mps because of age. Reason being that they artistes are looking for better life, pliz how dare you undress a woman fit to be your grand mum."
Over to you musicians....!

SELF STYLED Uganda's godfather of soul music has shaved his trademark - a thing that has shocked most of his females fans. We are told the 'Misubbawa' singer cut off much of his cherished hair a few weeks and later posted the pictures on his wall.
"He is spotting a clean shaven head ant totally looks different from the Maurice Kirya that city chics knew." According to his pals, when he stepped out for the first time last Friday for the East African X-plosion at Garden City Rooftop, several of his female fans could hardly recognize him.
Shockingly, those who did, never approved his new look. One was heard saying; @I don't like him without hair. He doesn't look hot." We are yet to know exactly why Maurice suddenly decided to clean his hair which he had invested so much in.

Life on the fast lane is no mean fete. The flashing lights, dizzying heights and self-indulgent lifestyle are simply exciting and so addictive. The moment you are thrown into the lime light, you never ever want to leave.
You may yap about the Pepperazi denying you privacy, yet you badly need the publicity as well. Rather, you'd be dragged out kicking and shouting than give up the life of being in the peppers - pun intended.
But wait a minute, it's not for free, there is a price to pay. Here are some but a few.
Ouch ..receive a few punches
- We learned that fighting is an intention to kill and two of our top most celebrated stars are equally famous for folding fists.
They have almost kicked the bucket due to a tiff gone really bad with a 'pow pow' as a sound track. We have blamed everything from yoyo wars to being under the influence and still counting. Moral of the story it hurts to be big...literally.
Sexually Starved and Lonely
- They got it all, the body, the voice and even the money...basically to us lay people, they are quite a catch but nobody will have them- at least not for keeps. Apparently they don't want to be hounded by the media and who can blame them?
Wearing 2-Inch Clothes in Biting Cold
- World over sex sells and we aren't going to dispute that but if you are going to strut around in 6-inches of fabric in this erratic weather; not envying you right now..knowing that very few of our 'celebs' own cars.
- The road to stardom is not a smooth one. You may be a star-not really sure if that makes sense but one thing is for sure; that life on the fast lane doesn't come cheap.
Take an example of hairstyles. For one it costs an arm and a leg to to get the 'in' hairstyle at an upmarket salon these days....but most of these babes would rather die than be seen without the trendiest accessory.
That alone you need infinite wardrobe. Normal folks can get away with the same dress all year but woe unto you if you are photographed in the same g-string at different locations.

- Owori Opens War on Competitors
- Snoops Believe She is Pointing At Heard
Ladies and gentlemen brace yourselves for the newest and most dangerous beef in town. Word whispered slowly around the streets is that accomplished city fashionista and boss of Sylvie's chain of boutiques, Sylvia Owori has ripped her competitors apart with a verbal rant.
According to snoops, Owori is not happy with 'fake' fashion designers who steal and copy her ideas. She posted her rant on her wall that; "Some small minded business people have the nerve to hire my former employees so they can have access to my clients database and company secrets.....
I am flattered that you're a fan and want to be like me when you grow up but slow down on the copying. You have to do the time in the Industry to earn the respect and name. I've done business for over 10 years, you?"
While, she was busy ranting, our snoops got down to the streets to inquire who Sylvie might be firing her missiles at. Though the results are not conclusive yet, our sources believe the most famous fashion designer in the city with over ten years experience in the industry was directing her veiled attack towards city socialite Judith Heard.
"It's possible that the barbed verbal assault could be directed to Judith Heard. The two of course have never been known to be best of friends." Remember, the former model recently opened up her JHFYS Boutique at Forest Mall, Lugogo and snoops say she is employing some of Owori's former models.
Meanwhile, Judith herself posted this on her wall a few minutes after the ex Miss Uganda boss had put hers. She wrote; The essence of competitiveness is liberated when we make people believe that what they think and do is important and then get out of their way while they do it."
Well the stage is set and open for the new beef - Just watch this space for who will win it!

KB REACHING us from the land of honey and milk is that city model Debby Sempaka's romping guy has been identified as Bossa Kazibwe. Debby and Kazibwe, the LC3 flop for Kakoba Division in Mbarara Municiplaity were spotted together while attending Golola Vs Nagy's kick boxing fight at Hotel Africana.
Snoops have revealed that ever since Kazibwe lost the LC3 slot to Rashid Mukasa, he has decided to relocate to Kampala from where he resorted to terrorising the chic's Kandahar.
Back in Mbarara his pals are shocked because of the way heir man is partying. Many thought he had run broke after over spending during elections and that's where he decided to relocate.

All I want for X-Mas.......We love this time of the year- the scent of christmas is in the air, the malls are packed with aggressive shoppers, and everyone is busy bustling to get last minute presents for their friends and family.
But what are our celebs doing at Christmas? What do they want dropped under their Christmas tree this year? So here it is..Willy Byarabaha gets first hand information on what our starts want.
Agatha Kaffoko - An inspirational book would do for me. On Christmas day I will be in Mbarara working at Big Fun Entertainment Centre.
Iryn Namubiru - A watch, Valentine perfume, new car, membership in Serena Health Club and more affection would make Christmas just great.
Judith Heard - I would love to have a 10cart diamond ring this Christmas. My family will visit Sanyu Babies Home and the cancer ward at Mulago.
Liane - I'll have lunch with my family then dash out for performances. I would love to have sexy heels for the day.
Cleopatra Koheirwe - My ideal X-mas gift would be a nice gadget such as iPod, iPhone, iPad etc. I love gadgets but to keep it simple and girly, a classy perfume will do. I do not know how I will spend the holiday....I have not celebrated Christmas in a long time since my mum passed on. It's like she took it with her but I am trying to rekindle my festive spirit.
Jackie Klein - If I get to spend my day with all my family and friends that would be gift enough.
Nambi Brenda - Happiness..i f it can be delivered at my doorstep, even better! But I will be spending time with my family. I will probably have my parents to my house and spoil them a little. I haven't seen them in a while.
Susan Naava - Well, I don't really have an ideal Christmas gift in mind this year...but I've worked hard this year so I'll spoil myself a little. I hope to celebrate the day with my loved ones.
Priscilla Ray - I don't really care much about gifts - it's the thought that counts;). I will be in Thailand for Christmas.

You will always catch her at almost every corporate do in town partying like there is no tomorrow.
Sexy Esther Akankwasa has slowly made a name for herself as one of the prominent city socialites after failing to cut an edge as a singer and dancer with Cyclone group. The former Cyclone singerand dancer has appeared in tabloid news for many reasons; the last one being her scandal with Bad Black where Esther has her cheek cut with a piece of glass.
Celeb Magazine Rowland Nkahebwa caught up with her and talked to her about the Bad Black incident, love life and her partying life style among other things.
CM: Who is Esther Akankwasa?
Esther: Esther is a humble loving gal born on 9th Aug 1991. I grew up in Nansana, went to Buganda road Primary School, Trinity College Nabbingo for O’level, Kisubi Quuens for A’ level. I am currently in my second year at YMCA, doing a diploma in Travel and Tourism.
CM: When do you find time for lectures; you are out partying most of the time?
Esther: Ha ha ha you make it sound like I party everyday. My lectures are in the morning hours; I sleep the rest of the day and go out not to just party but to meet people and get connections because I am planning something massive very soon. Don’t ask me what it is because it’s not ready yet.
CM: What happened to your singing and dancing career with Cyclone?
Esther: Just like any other job; you can quit. I realized that it was not meant for me so I quit early this year after being with Cyclone for two years. Though I miss that life very much but I’m not ready to go back.
CM: You do not have a particular job, where do you get the money you spend on night outs from?
Esther: It’s true I have no job; I get money from my Dad Luks Robert because my mum (RIP) left us with many rental buildings which pay well. I know most people think that I get money from men since I have no job which isn’t true.
Besides I help out different people with their fashion related events and I get paid for it although it is not a daily thing.
CM: Beautiful as you were we haven’t spotted you with a guy. How is it possible?
Esther: I have not yet found the right man. I was involved with a man two months back but we broke up. I gave him a chance and he could not love me for who I am and instead wanted to change me; he could not stand my partying ways. At the moment I am single and not searching. By the way when I love, I love for real because I hate pretence and lies.
CM: So what qualities would you look for in ‘Mr Right’?
Esther: He has to be understanding, genuine loves helping out other people and should be ready to love me the way I am. I hate selfish people! Oh yeah, he should also be capable of catering for my needs financially.
CM: I see the scar on your cheek is healing. What exactly went down between you and Bad Black that night?
Esther: It was an accident because happened top be at the counter at the same time with her . I don’t know what she was doing but suddenly she threw a glass and it cut my cheek and chest. I went to the ladies room and saw blood flowing down my chest and fainted; woke up the next day at the surgery hospital in Kololo. It happened, I forgave her and I am trying to forget it ever happened.
CM: What about the rumours that she did it intentionally because you were poaching on her man?
Esther: I am setting the record straight; I have never seen or met Black’s man because I don’t even now his name (David Greehalgh). He does not know me either since we have never met.
CM: Are you still friends with Bad Black?
Esther: ad Black has never been my friend. We only talked during that time when we were finding a solution to my injury.
CM: What irritates you?
Esther: People who don’t know me misjudging me; they look at me as a bitch. Then there are people who were once my friends but nowadays talk ill of me.
CM: What is the craziest thing you’ve dome out of love?
Esther: I was very stupid and naïve and climbed the balcony up to the third floor so I could get inside and surprise my boyfriend. But when he found me on the balcony, he got mad. I will never do it again.
CM: We always see you clad in designer clothes, do you have a personal designer or did you study fashion?
Esther: None of the two. Most of my clothes are tailor made here in Kampala by Duncan Ndaula and Sharon Kansiime. Some I buy from shops around town and order the rest from out.
CM: What are the things people don’t know about you?
Esther: I am so emotional; I cry when watching a love story or a sad movie. I hate G-Strings and I love eating Mulokoni (Cow Hoofs) especially the soup
CM: What do you intend to do after Graduation?
Esther: I want to work with British Airways and I am starting flying lessons next year after school. I also want to open a shoe shop dealing only in six inch high heels.

City Thugs showed UK glamour gal and former model, Priscilla Ray how it's done back home in Uganda.According to snoops, Ray who secretly sneaked into the country almost cried like a baby when goons vandalised her ride as she watched a basketball game at YMCA last Friday.
"She could barely believe it when she found most of the car lamps. side mirrors and other accessories missing." a snoop told us.
In fact Ray took to social network to vent her anger. She wrote that; "Went to watch the game at YMCA and my car got vandalised....so freaking pissed off ...bloody thieving bastards!"
We have since learnt that after the incident Ray jetted out of the country. She added; "Off to Dubai, Thailand and Hong Kong for Xmas holiday and very far away from the Kampala thieves."

We are certain that you are in the mood to count down that last days of 2011. There have been so many memorable events that rocked the year. Today we take you through some of the most memorable happenings of the last twelve months.
January - Mid January, two of Uganda's heavy weight artistes; Chameleone and Bobi Wine buried the hutched and held a joint concert at Kati Kati dubbed 'Battle of Champions' to celebrate ten years in the game.
The presidential campaigns are also worth mentioning for they disorganized the entire country in that some candidates looked for votes in regions beyond the borders of Uganda.
February - This was the month that H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was declared the president of the Republic of Uganda; making it his third term in the office. He beat Dr. Kizza Besigye, his strongest challenger by over sixty percent.
March - The 'Temangalo' saga was on every one's lips. As a result of this bribery scandal, former NSSF boss David Chandi Jamwa was sent to Luzira for allegedly embezzling over Shs 3bn.
He was sentenced to twelve years in 'University of Understanding' but spent there a few weeks and applied for bail which was granted to him. However, Jamwa's case is still pending after he appealed against the case.
Japan's most powerful earthquake since records began struck the north-east coast, triggering a massive tsunami. Cars, ships and buildings were swept away by a wall of water after the 8.9-magnitude tremor which struck about 400km (250 miles) north-east of Tokyo.
April - Kampala was not a good place to be during this time as this was the time when members of the opposition decided to protest high prices for goods and services by walking to work. It was during these walk to work (W2W) riots that Dr.Kizza Besigye's right hand middle and index finger got shot by police trying to calm the situation.
No nonsense police officer Arinaitwe Gilbert Bwana smashed Besigye's window car and sprayed his eyes with pepper spray. In the same month, South African based Ugandan socialite, Zari threw an all white part at swanky Guvnor and treated guests to free booze until the wee hours of the morning.
May - May 12, 2011 Ugandans woke up to horrible news that local Luga-Ragga singer Rabadaba real name Faisal Seguya had stabbed Goodlyfe crew member Thaddeus Buyengo.
Thaddeus underwent two operations for the wounds he sustained and the 'Mukyamu' singer got arrested but was later released; it's believed that Rabadaba paid his way to freedom.
June - Local singer Jose Chameleone was voted sixth biggest African singer. The list showed that Senegalese born American singer Akon in the number one position, followed by 2face Idibia, P-Square in position three, Nigeria's D-Banj in number four and then South Africa's Yvone Chaka Chaka comes at number five giving Chameleone the sixth position.

And Thigh-land with Cellulite.
Big Brother Africa Amplified finalist Sharon o knows she has a hot booty and she is not shy to flaunt it. Sharon in the company of Obsessions Group mate, Jackie left horny guys licking their lips as the two put on a massive show of their booties.
This was during the flopped and chaotic Elephant Man show at Kati Kati last Saturday. An excited fan said; "Their songs might not be that much of head spinners but at least on a cold night like this, we can do with looking at such nice ass-ets."
On such a bad night when everything at the show went wrong. It looked like Obsessions singers skimply dressed in tight black shorts, tight tops and knee length red boots were the only members to light up the mediocre event.
However, our beauty expert has revealed that Sharon's hot booty is showing signs of stretching to the limits. He said; "There are signs that her thighs and booty have stretch marks and it's not a good sight."
Experts say stretch marks are often as a result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth or weight gain especially during pregnancy, muscle building or rapid gain of fat. So over to you Sharon; could you be baking a to?

Music experts believed the Elephant Man 'Let's Get Physical' concert was meant to flop from the onset.Only a handful of revellers (around fifty) turned up for the gig at Kati Kati Bar and Restaurant on Saturday.
The Jamaican singer did not even show up with everything a mess. Local star Coco Finger, who was at the venue also as a reveller, offered to entertain the crowd when the news filtered through that Elephant Man would be a no show.
The organisers, who fronted Wine Garage's Allan Ntanda, were arrested for duping Ugandans. The show was originally meant to take place at Cricket Oval in Lugogo but organisers failed to pay the Shs40 million renting price.
This is the reason they shifted to Kati Kati. However, they had already paid Shs10million to the Oval management. And Kati Kati though cheaper was worth Shs 7million. WTF has learnt that Silk Events, which was to provide stage but later pulled out, had been paid around Shs 10 million upfront.
The makeshift stage provided by Uncle Mitch's Eclipse and one Henry pocketed around Shs 4million. The artiste alone was paid a mammoth $20,000(around Shs 50 million) and yet he did not perform.
All these costs are minus security, advertorial and miscellaneous. Combined it all cost around Shs 150 million.

Previous: Alaka, Black Clash Over Dime
At the moment the Mercedes Benz with personalized number plate 'Black Gal' was taken away by city businessman one Sekatawa, a dealer in real estate who is a son to late Abu Mayanja.
It is alleged that Black had financial problems and borrowed money worth Shs50m from Sekatawa. It is reported that she handed over the log book, the car card plus the car. That she failed to pay back the borrowed money and car was taken.
About BMW X6 and the Range Rover, it is reported that before her arrest, Black had borrowed Shs80m from Sekatawa alleging that her accounts had been frozen. She agreed to mortgage her BMWX6 vehicle registration number UAP 304 D as security.
She declined to hand over it's log book and the car card saying that it was with her mother. Sekatawa asked her to issue him a cheque in the names of Ismail Mpanga, which she did on cheque number 800038..
She handed him a Range Rover log book on the understanding that she would avail Sekatawa with the X6 log book later. Black was arrested before she handed over the logbook as she was driving the Range Rover which police impounded.
Police impounded it under the guise that they would use it as an evidence of stolen money and is up to now being parked at Kibuli CID headquarters. Black has since remained with no vehicle and when she was arrested; she called Sekatawa to continue with the facilitation as she had plans of settling the debts after.
It is reported that Sekatawa was not cooperative because the matter was very sensitive yet he is press shy. Black was desperate to get out of prison yet she needed the money. She feared taht she would not get a non-cash bail and decided to contact Abowe for money through Daudi Balondemu, advocate with WEB who was initially her lawyer asking him to lend her Shs60m.
"Because Alaka was being hunted by the Law Council over the dime he allegedly diddled from clients, he immediately ordered Abowe to release the money," said the source.
Sekatawa got information that Black had got money from another source after depositing the same log book. This did not go well with him. Attempts to meet Black were all in vain as she was in jail. He then waited until she came out of jail. Abowe, sensing that he would not recover his money, opted to go to commercial Court where he filed a case.

By Benon Tugumisirize - Black Meets Green, Asks for more dime.
The mystery tycoon Latifah Nalukenge alias Bad Black who was recently released on bail from Luzira coolers has terribly clashed with her lawyer Caleb Alaka over dime.
The sex oozing Black, after her release from Luzira where she spent a month, was approached by her sureties demanding for Shs30m as their facilitation.
She allegedly attacked Caleb Alaka, over her failure in bail grant from the side of money she borrowed from Spear Abowe, the proprietor of Rouge Night Spot and Lance Investments Ltd, a money lending firm that issued the money to facilitate her bail.
This did not go down well with Alaka. "I was in court and was granted a non cash bail, I now demand to know the accountability of the money to facilitate my bail. I expected these people to be covered by now," said Black.
Two days after Black was released, Alaka approached Black with a requisition of 430m as the amount of money he wanted to be paid for his legal services since he took over from Web Advocates.
When she returned top Alaka, she gave him only Shs2m claiming that it was the remaining balance. Green on Thursday returned from the US where he had gone to settle issues with his family.
As soon as he arrived in the country, he called Black and they met at Garden City where they enjoyed some drinks. Later in the night our snoop spotted them kissing and after Green reached for his wallet and pulled out some notes and offered her.
He was heard saying: "Take this little and settle some of the debts you still have." Black was seen in a blue Toyota Noah with Green as they drove towards Effendys.
