As 2010 comes to an end, we take a look at Kandahar/whooper dealings that caused storms. Some ended tragically (by death) while others ended comically (by reconciliation). Take a look at some that captured our attention.
Sheila Mulinde and Jeff - Married to pastor Mulinde, Sheila was unaware that her husband was suspecting her and had deployed private investigators to trail her. The investigators got a bumper harvest when they smoked out the pastors wife moaning sweet nothings inn praise of a popular barber called Jeff of the famous Jephis' saloon on Jinja road, the pair was briefly detained, pending the pastor's return from the US.
GNL and Becky - If she did not decide to jet into the town and accuse the lad for swindling millions of shillings from her, we would never have known. Becky reported him at Kitante Police and the juicy details of their romping sessions were unveiled. The scandal took another twist when she discovered that GNL was seeing another babe called Ruth.
Rabadaba and Sheila - Just months after ballooning Sheila Ferguson, Rabdaba dumped her, saying she lied about her age. Sheila recently gave birth to a baby boy in the UK. Meanwhile, Rabadaba is always cited with Black, an alleged man eater.
Tonku and Brenda Karamuzi - The pair had love/hate relationship which, friends say was characterised by constant fights. It was not until late last year when Brenda's family realised that she had gone missing. The horror was unveiled when a fumigator discovered her body stuffed in a septic tank in Muyenga.
Tonku, the prime suspect was nabbed and sent to the coolers in Luzira.It's the scandal that welcomed us into 2010.
Sylvia Owori/Neilson - After 14 years of bonking, the final curtain of the show fell when the media published the photo of Andrew Mwenda and Owori snogging. We hear the introvert Neilson threw in the towel and a custody battle for their kids ensued.
Then before the Mwenda dust could settle, a one Malaika appeared on the scene.
Akankwasa and Juliet Katusiime - The suspended National Forest Authority boss, Damien Akankwasa, would have kept his low profile if his wife did not pinch a whooping 900m from his house! (We wonder what percentage that was because she must have left a balance behind).
When the cops intervened, the fella lost the dime, wife and his fatty job. Sorry but such are the tribulations of life.

We can reliably tell that Blu3 singer Edith Baganda aka Mya is set to drop tot mid next month (December). Her close pals say Mya who is now eight months pregnant is in her last stages of a strenuous period. A close pal told us, "She is eight months preggie and is behind closed doors taking all tribes of local herbs in preparation for her first kid.
The herbs are supposed to expand her vuvuzela so that she can easily deliver." Meanwhile we have further been told that Mya is so worried about delivering by caesarean section. She is scared her kandahar might be too small for the baby to easily go through.
However, family sources claim that top senga's are doing everything necessary to see that she doesn't get any problems. The man responsible for planting a live seed inside the Blu3 singer's juicy vuvu is yet to be identified though several claimants including a loaded pensioner around town have been touted as possible candidates.

President Yoweri Museveni has given Stamina singer Eddie Kenzo a brand new Landcruiser VX. This was after the singer impressed him with his Stamina song and dance. Big Talent President -Kenzo performed at Kololo after Museveni's presidential nomination on Monday.
The singer had earlier on performed at the youth concert at Lugogo Cricket Oval. At both events Museveni was highly impressed by Kenzo. Earlier this week Kenzo was informed by the NRM secretariat that the President had offered him a Land Cruiser VX as a gift for his impressive performance.
The singer was supposed to pick it last Friday. An NRM insider told us that the President intends to work with Kenzo and his Stamina dancer Roni on most of his campaign tours across the country.
Museveni himself has joined the music industry of late. His new song "You Want Another Rap" is currently a big hit in entertainment circles.
Thursday, 28 October 2010
Presidential campaigns are under way. Each candidate for the top seat has come up with different styles to woo voters to their side. President Museveni's "You want another Rap" is climbing the local music charts at a break neck speed.
We hear Uncle Besi is already composing a song of how the NRM party should brace themselves for another round of Tsunami while we are yet to know what is brewing in Mao and Beti Kamya's camps.
But there is one person who is also taking that plaudits and it's none other than PPP leader Hon Jaberi Bidandi Ssali who we can now reliably reveal has for the first time taken inspiration from his son Bebe Cool's pseudo name , KATALA by using a lantern as his campaign symbol for 2011.
One amused guy told us, "When Bobi Wine baptised Bebe with the Kataala name, most people ranted but it looks like we can now confirm why the Ghetto president dubbed him so. Most of my friends can't stop laughing after they saw his father Bidandi at Namboole holding a lantern (kataala)"
We now wonder whether the ageing politician could have taken inspiration from Bobi's song both son and fathers are...er...ok we didn't say it.

Just last week, we reported in these pages how Desire Luzinda's UK based pal only identified as Kaka was set to storm Kampala in December for a short holiday. We then advised city loaded guys to prepare to have the best fun with this party animal.
But apart from her wild partying lifestyle, we have come to learn that the bootyful Kaka is a raging maneater who has swallowed many whoppers of loaded Nkuba Kyeyo's back in Manchester, UK where she is based.
A source told us, "She never misses a party anywhere in the UK. She is known around all top hangouts in London. She changes guys like Knickers and only loaded ones come close to her.
If you have a bank account that is less than a million dollars on it, then forget about her." A pal confirmed to us. Meanwhile, more unconfirmed reports indicate that she once dated a top footballer in the premiership who piles his trade at the Old Trafford based Manchester United FC.
We are yet to know which footballer that is, but watch this space. Kaka now becomes the second Ugandan babe to be linked with a top European footballer after Becky Emonz was confirmed to be romping with Inter Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The launch of battles between bitter rivals Bobi Wine and Bebe Cool should this time around step aside because a mother of all wars has now officially been opened and battle lines have been drawn.
The moment it was announced that established artistes Bebe Cool and Bobi Wine were set to launch on the same day, it had a ring of excitement written all over it (as far as their fans are concerned).
Now we are told the two big weights in Ugandas local music, have already started a verbal war with each claiming either one of them shifts to another date or one of them will get a heavy beating.
Our snoops landed on one of Bebe's recent sms sent to Ragga Dee telling him to change or else he is bound to fall in fire. It read, "Mugandawange ndeka maleko ne launch yange. Naye bwonetoloola ogya kugwa mukidibba. Era namba emu yampa ticket nze ne family yange tugende mu Amerika, tosobola kumalako nange era ajja kubayo"
literally translated as, "My brother let me have success with my album launch in peace. But if you don't want, you will fall in a deep ditch. Even the President paid for all my family's expenses to go to America, so you won't be able to keep up with me coz the President will also attend."
While another of Bebe's threatening text read, "Wadde oli jajja w'abayimbi, kiriza nti nze munene. Oba tusobola okukiriziganya nja kuba ku launch yo" meaning, Even if you are the Grand Father of Ugandan Music, agree that am now extra big.
But if we can agree and you change your date then I will be able to come and sing at your launch." But we have been told a defiant Ragga Dee has rejected all his proposals and he is ready to take him on.
We can't wait because this battle looks even sweeter. Watch this space!

We knew there was something fishy the moment we learnt that lugaflow singer Ernest Nsamba aka GNL Zamba had been locked behind bars over allegations of assaulting a woman hanging in his neck.
Now we can exclusively reveal that the babe at the centre of all this is none other than Sweden based Ugandan glamour girl Becky Emonz whom we have been reporting on our gossip pages that he was devouring former Barcelona and now Inter Milan Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Apparently, Beck (Mirembe) and GNL were bonking before he hooked up his current girl friend Ruth.And all along she was the one bank rolling him. A source told us, "The money she claims GNL diddled was meant for him to chuck his chic Ruth and dock at her station.
He took the dime and never dumped his gal, so she is furious. So is it a situation of a kandahar mission that was aborted midway leaving behind some wounded casualties. In fact w had reported sometime back how she had clashed with Ruth.
Emon who jetted into the country to celebrate Eid el Fitr, clashed with the Kikankane singer on Tuesday last week at Club Silk where she claims he assaulted her. His case was registered under file no: SD Ref: 03/15/09/2010 at Jinja road police station.
She has vowed to take him on till he surrenders his whopper. For that she wins the accolade of Maneater of the year.

Her kid was born diabetic has been in the hospital nursery kangaroo unit 4 for premature babies. But now she has been discharged and went to her home in Bunamwaya with her new tot.

It read: "Congs. He will a be a great son. C U soon Lilly." The baby was delivered by caesarian section. Both mum and baby are in fine health.

Star vocalist Bebe Cool has finally acquired the BIG SIZE number plate of his new monster Hummer H2 vehicle. Ever since he bought the powerful car in February, he has tried to acquire the number plate but in vain.
In fact it has always been believed he had failed to clear import taxes. Recently the car has been carrying an ordinary number plate in the UAN series. But lately it is said the singer received a huge sum of money from President Yoweri Museveni as compensation following gunshot wounds he suffered in January 2010.
Though it is not clear how much money he received, a massive $75,000 which is around Shs 165million. However our senior snoop bumped into the singer in a bank depositing Shs 70million.
He is meant to travel to United States for a final operation on his legs.

Just in 2008, they won three Pam Awards with club banger NAKUDATA, winning Song of the year at the PAM Awards. Word on everyone's lips was that the boys had arrived with a swagger.
Ugandans embraced them the way the jesuits did to Jesus. For a moment, the sky appeared to be the limit for Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel TV and Moses Nakintigye aka Moze Radio. The boys who formerly plied their trade as singer Jose Chameleone back up singers had in a twinkle of an eye become men; celebrities; they were the hottest property on Uganda's music scene.
Everything they touched was turning gold from 2008 and 2009. They chumed out top hits after another from Nakudata, Zuena, Nyambura, Bread and Butter to duets like Ability with Rabadaba, potential with Zambia's Gen Ozzy and Where You are with Blu3 among other songs.
But since the turn of the year we have noted a downward trend in their musical graph, their performance price per show has lowered tremendously (they were recently paid Shs 1m at a show in Mbale; money they wouldn't take in their hey days) while their new songs are yet to win over their doubters.
Biff, Biff and More Biff
A saying goes "Be good to people on your way up the ladder because you are bound to meet them on your way down." Now the fact is, these boys have clashed with most guys in town.
From fights with their mentor Jose Chameleone(they baptised one of their dogs Chameleone recently) after they quit his Leone Island Crew; the never ending wars and battles with the Bebe Cool to top club Managers like AngeNoir CEO Charlie Lubega among many other top music promoters. They have clashed with them all.
At one point after their biff had gotten worse, they did a song 'Chidula' dissing Charlie; a thing that led to their music banned from ever being played at the club again(though Charlie later revised the punishment) while other clubs like Silk at one point had also put a ban on them ever entering because of the chaos they were causing.
Battles with Bebe
Their battles with Bebe Cool are well documented. To say it loud and clear their songs are based on fights with the Gagamel Crew owner. One music critic says: "The problem with the Goodlyfe is that most of their songs are talking about Bebe and his wife Zuena. You see people can take in such songs for a short time but over a long run they will get used to them and then you will eventually find there is nothing new to offer to your fans. That will signal your end to music.
Ego and Arrogance
There's no question that the boys are talented. But however much talented one is; discipline is paramount to success. And surely Moze and Radio's discipline leaves a lot to be desired.
The same audience that had embraced them now looks at them with contempt just a couple of years down the road. One fan wondered, why they don't respect fellow artistes they found in the industry. This is their number one downfall and it's the reason why most of their fans are fast running away.

If there is anyone suffering most because of the anti-terrorism measures being taken after the July 11 bomb blasts then it is none other than curvy singer Desire Luzinda.
As you are all aware, these days it is almost impossible to enter any building in the city without going under a metal detector test.
When the machine detects a metal, it sends out a loud beep and you are told to remove whatever the machine is complaining about.
As for Desire, things have not been easy and she has been wasting a lot of time arguing with security guards over ever-lasting beeps after removing her ear rings and the pin on her nose.
If you have seen some of her pictures in our pages, you must have noticed she has a pin on her navel as well. But that is not all, those who have had the privilege of seeing her in Adam suit claim she has pins in other hidden parts of the body as well and that is what is making metal detectors scream as if she is carrying a bomb.

Uganda's representative in the new Big Brother All Stars season 5, Hannington has been keeping a secret that might surely raise his grand mama's hair. The fella revealed that his biggest secret is bonking a mother and her daughter.
He told Big Brother, "My inner most secret is bonking the mother of the babe I was dating."
This shocking detail was revealed when all housemates were told to expose their inner most secrets by Big Brother. "I docked at my mother in-law's yoyo when my girlfriend left the two of us besides the swimming pool and she went for shopping in town"
He concluded the shocking tale. Well, that classifies him as a mother f**ker, right?Anyway, Now the search is on for his former girl friend to find out who that mum is.

Just a few days after Joseph Mayanja a.k.a Chameleone sued Golden voiced singer Grace Nakimera, shocking details are being unleashed about the real biff between the two singers.
We've learnt from sources that much as Chameleone claims he sued Grace because she allegedly used his name and picture on the posters of her launch at KCC Grounds recently, the row between the seems to have stemmed from mutual rather than financial motives.
Our analysts scrutinizing the issue contend that to begin with Chameleone is far ric compared to Grace and if anything, he wouldn't have sued her for money.
Who is Grace Nakimera?
She is perhaps the most successful female Ugandan artiste who hails from Muyenga and has been in the game of music for 5 years now with hits like 'Sukuma', 'Anfukuula', 'Kiva Kuki', 'Kawonawo' and her latest 'Onyamba Nga' She is a mother of one and has steadily been climbing the celebrity ladder.
Origin of the Biff
Chameleone needs not to be introduced but what is clear is that though his Leone Island studios, he has dragged Grace to court demanding for General damages. It all starts when Grace advertises Chameleone to perform on her album launch that was slated for the 14.May.2010.
However, sources reveal that trouble came when Chameleone who had accepted to perform, changed his mind at the last moment and demanded for more money than what had earlier been agreed upon by the two parties.
When the two camps failed to agree, sources reveal that Grace decided to go on with her launch without Chameleone, which was a success. It has been further revealed that Chameleone's camp thought the show would be a flop, since they regarded themselves as the greatest crowd pullers.
However, they were shocked to the balls when Grace's show attracted more people than any other shows in the country that weekend, especially their upcountry show. It is said that on realizing that Grace's show was a success, Chameleone's camp decided to encroach on her gate collections by claiming that they deseve a share, since she used his name on her posters.
The Leone Island Camp then filed a suit against her in Mengo magistrate's court, for allegedly using his picture without his consent, demading 100M in compesation and general damages.
Analysts have reached a consensus that Chameleoe could actually be harboring hidden intentions against Grace. She would have not used Chamili's picture had she not got permission, then also why was Chamili's camp demanding for more money if they had not given her a go ahead.
We've also learnt that there's no way Chameleone's photo couldn't have been used since he had already accepted to perform but was waiting for payment. In addition, It could have been extremely difficult for Grace to recall all the posters, banners etc advertising Chameleone as one of the performers, just because they had failed to agree about what he wanted.
Now that Chameleone has more money than Grace and it is said that the singer has sampled almost all Ugandan female musicians apart from Grace who has stuck to her pride and esteem could this mean the star is after heavenly manna! Watch this space for the proceedings.

Uganda Top singer Dr. Jose Chameleone was on cloud 9 after meeting Colombian Music guru Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll in South Africa in South Africa where he had gone for the official closing ceremony of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Jose Chameleone who performed in a live show was full of joy for being the only East African singer to perform at the concert. Chameleone featured in one of the World Cup Theme songs 'Everywhere You Go' where he collaborated with Kelly Rowland and other fellow African top singers like 2face, Awadi, Krotal, Jozi, Kwesta, Rola and Samini.

The medics who treated burnt singer Angella Katatumba have dropped a bombshell! The songstress, according to her medics who prefer not to be named, may never regain her proper sight because the Hi-Tech machine rays affected her veins.
Bummy Angella looked haunted and a shadow of her former beauty after she was discharged from Midland Clinic. With her parents the Katatumba's, by her side, the busy singer tried to open her eyes, only for foam to trickle out.
"I am slowly regaining my sight though it is till blurred vision. I can't keep my eyes open for more than 10 seconds cause water-like substances start flowing." She said. Angella, who is reportedly dating a legislator from western Uganda, lost the silky skin that made many men lustfully open their mouths.
But the red eyed British Crowned climate change ambassador says, she was grateful that God saved her life. "The film director told me that they were supposed to use four lights but only applied one basing it on the weather.
My Worry is that if they had applied the four, wouldn't I be dead by now?" she added. Angella suffered sight problems when hi-tech lights were switched on almost blowing her eyes out.
She was filming a British Council-sponsored video sensitizing people on the importance of green conservation. Other artistes have also suffered such accidents because of poor handling of machines.
Pop legend Michael Jackson got his hair torched during a Pepsi Commercial in 1994 when technicians failed to handle the lights properly. He received serious burns on his head leading to his admission to a Los Angeles hospital.
In Uganda, singer Grace Nakimera was taken to hospital after claiming that she had come under acid attacked. It was later proved that she was pulling a stunt to gain media attention ahead of her album launch.

What everyone thought was a joke is turning out really ugly. We have sensationally learnt that the Bayuda singer Jose Chameleone has sued Kawonawo star Grace Nakimera over unauthorized use of his pictures during her album launch.
Sometime back we reported that Jose had ordered his lawyers to take further action towards Grace after she put his picture on her album launch posters without his consent. That was way back in April.
But just last week news came out revealing that Chameleone's lawyers had filed a case at Mengo Magistrates Court asking for compensation and damages worth Shs 100M. A source told us, "If you thought it was a joke then the Bayuda singer is not one to joke around.
He is demanding a vast sum of money and he is dead serious" By press time we couldn't get to both artistes but we will no doubt keep you posted on the proceedings. Watch This Space.

Most of you guys have seen our artistes during their heyday when they live a pompous lifestyle that would make the Queen of England envious. Although most of them don't want us to know their past, we can reveal that many of them came from very far as seen below:
DJ Michael - Born and raised in Najjanakumbi, dropped out in senior five after failing to raise school fees. He opened up a Matooke stall in Stella zone Najja to make ends meet. In the late 90's, due to his dynamism, he was recruited as a bouncer at Britania Night Club.
He used to do rehearsals with the DJ's box and when the DJ was fired, Michael was made the resident DJ.
When he proved to be good Lido Beach Management hired his services as an in house DJ. This time he started the journey of his singing career and luckily enough his first song 'Kwata Kwata' earned him a lot of popularity.
If you want him to add you to his list of enemies tell him to sing in English. With the help of Madam Cheryl, who is perceived by many as his sugar mummy. He got a toyota surf and jumped into another class.
Bobi Wine - The 'Uganja' president was orn from Gomba but grew up in Kamwkya. He started from Kitante but during his free times e could sell second hand clothes in Owino. He was also known for supplying 'weed' to taxi touts in Kamwokya.
It appears his parents were not badly off because they were able to sponsor him at Makerere University where he pursued a course in MDD.
Jose Chameleone - Joseph Mayanja was born in Kawempe Maganjo to the family of Mr. Mayanja, went to Kawempe P/S, Mengo SS and dropped out in S.6 when he failed to get school fees. Started working as a DJ in club Mijuri in Maganjo.
When things failed to work out he shifted to Nairobi where he became a street boy for many years. He could sleep in a disco due to lack of accommodation. He then met Bebe Cool, who at that time was working with Ogopa DJ's.
The two stayed together while he did odd jobs. That's why whenever they fight, they easily make up because they were tight buddies while in Nairobi. He then composed a song 'Mama Mia'
Because he was a skirt chaser, he met Dorotia who game him a house and they started bonking like crazy. He then came back to Uganda and his singing career has been on the rise since then. When you meet him today, he will not care to listen to you when you tell him how he suffered in Nairobi.

The latest war of words between former celebrity couple Mario and Cindy is soon spiralling out of control. We have reliably been informed that since they separated two weeks back, they have been trading hot words against each other.
A source close to both claims Cindy is so incensed with her former boyfriend's decision to bin her without knowing the facts about rumours that were circulating claiming she had been romping with numerous artistes around town.
'She doesn't care about him anymore and in fact she says he should go to hell because she can look after herself" We are told Cindy is currently staying with a friend as she looks forward to single life.
Well, we now think she can finally hook, bonk and dump whoever she wants. In fact she was spotted at Lugogo during Pam Awards cocktail looking haggard but none the less having fun.

Local musician Moses Ssali aka. Bebe Cool's troubles seem to hide behind his gate and follow him whenever he stretches out for business. Just days after he returned to the stage on being shot three times in the thighs by a security guard, the 'Kasepiki' singer yesterday cheated death by luck when he was involved in an accident together with his wife.
The self proclaimed 'Big Size' was on his way from Lira when his Honda CRV car swerved off the road and rolled after its front tyre burst. The accident happened in Nakasongola District at around 4:50pm.
Bebe was driving himself and his sex oozing wife was seated in the co-driver's seat. Before he left lira, DJ Brian wanted to drive the car but Bebe insisted on driving himself despite doctors warning him not to drive.
Bebe Cool had been taken to Soroti by promoter Balaam to promote Electoral Commission activities. He escaped with minor bruises, but Zuena and DJ Brian sustained serious injuries and were rushed to Nakasongola for first aid.

Self acclaimed Ghetto President, Bobi Wine aka Robert Kyagulanyi was last night rushed to Mulago Hospital where he was admitted in ward 6B, Room 14. Bobi who collapsed for the third time last evening, has been frequently visiting Mayo Clinic since 9th May when he buckled at his Busabala Beach.
Although the doctors later diagnosed him with mild malaria, sources say he was severely dehydrated after a series of ganja overdose. Before any treatment, the doctors put in him countless bottles of water for him to gain his consciousness. Last Thursday, the Namusanga Ndeeba singer refused to follow instructions of the doctors by leaving Mayo Clinic direct to Kati kati for performance.
To add salt to an injury he went further to flaunt the doctors advice by downing several bottles of Guinness and of course sever pieces of Ganja. Prior to this admission last night, the singer was admitted twice at Mayo Clinic due to excessive drinking, fatigue and Ganja smoking.
His wife, Barbie who recently dropped a tot, buddy Chameleone were by his side together with his subjects from Uganja republic. By the time we went to press, Bobi Wine had gained his senses. He bragged: I can't sleep here man, give me my guitar and I play music.
Dehydration is lack of enough water in the body and among its causes are excessive drinking of spirits, smoking and insufficient rest.

Stunt of the Year - After repeated claims by singer Grace Nakimera that she was being bombarded by threatening messages over her upcoming album launch, Police are now set to investigate her.
This follows an incident at Club Silk on Saturday where a fella reportedly attacked Grace by pouring only stuff previously thought to be acid. Police sources now claim Nakimera is set to face an investigation after claims surfaced that she could actually be faking all these attacks to get media attention so as to hype up her upcoming album launch.
Police spokeswoman Judith Nabakooba told us: "Claims have been reported that she could be the one master minding all these attacks. So if such a report comes in, that means as Police we have to talk to Grace."
Just a few weeks back, Grace reported to police that she was being threatened with SMS' but on Saturday, she was reportedly attacked by Robert Mande, a resident of Kabalagala during the Smirnoff Street Jam at Club Silk.
The police have detained the fella at Jinja Road Police Station under SD REF Number 04/02/05/010 with intention to murder charges. Grace was rushed to Paragon hospital in Bugolobi. We have since learnt she is doing fine and it was not an acid attack but rather an oil attack.
Could it all be planned out? Police will let us know. Watch out for more details tomorrow

Guys, We have a new celeb in town. The long awaited verdict is now in and now we know who she is. Yes the most daring babe who appeared pantless at Club Rouge during the wacky Sense of fashion show organised by Ugamail.
Her name is Sonia Namutebi Ssebaggala, currently working in Kamwokya with a prominent SMS company and a daughter top a retired auditor, Hajj Mahmood Ssebaggala. She is an old student of Nabisunsa Girls and we hear she has dated numerous loaded men in town, including the one and only Capt. Juma Seiko.
One reader responded to last week's story thus: "The miss pantless chic you wrtote about is called Sonia, a BBA graduate from MUBS last year and was staying in Akamwesi Hostel. She was always driving herself courtesy of corporate sugar daddies.
We have also reliably gathered from the rumour machine in town that this oozing Sonia could be a man eater and a top romper in town who only cares about the size of the wallet. Pantless Sonia is definitely the talk of the town after she appeared at Club Rouge with totally nothing underneath, exposing clean shaven ridges of her river between to whoever cared to see, thus beating the record held by Eva Mbabazi with her legendary fishnet.

The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Maj Gen. Kale Kayihura has opened the lid on concerts and said that artistes who perform below the fans expectations would now be subject to criminal charges. The evidently irked police head cited the R.Kelly show which he branded as a rip off saying that the star should be charged for obtaining money by false pretence.
''I have now taken over. No concerts without my approval and a contract must be signed by all stakeholders. How many songs and how long the singer must stay on the stage. I can't afford seeing millions of people going for a riot because of security insensitive artistes"
"I was personally there and the way the man(Kelly) fled the stage, even when people were still entering, expressed he was himself guilty. Iam provided for in the constitution to detect and prevent disorder so, from today on, any contract must have a nod from police," he said.
Now I hear someone is bringing Beyonce, please tell him to report to me before I embarass him. The general added that Ugandans are hard working people whose money should not be put to waste. Ugandans are peaceful otherwise the R. Kelly story would be different.

The 'Bogolako' star singer Bebe Cool was shot twice in the thighs by cops in a hot sex brawl as he tried to block the police from arresting his aide who was having noisy and steamy sex in the car. The incident took place at 3:00am between Nakumatt shopping centre and Centenary Park.
Foot patrol police came across car number 278 UEC that was swinging up and down with funny noise bellowing from inside attracting sniffer dogs and cops. On coming closer to the car, they saw a couple having hot sex romps prompting them to stop the couple saying it was unbecoming and being disorderly.
They knocked the car windows real hard but the couple was so defiant that they continued with the sex marathon. It seems the guy was just about to hit it. He later lowered the window and asked the cops to leave him alone but they threatened to call 999.
Bebe Cool Arrives
The man who we still do not know asked the cops that he should call his lawyers before they can arrest him. "He made a call and it was not long when Bebe Cool emerged from Centenary Park with about 20 mean looking men. On reaching the scene, Bebe asked: "What are these f***n police guys doing here? You guys what is your problem?"
The scuffle degenerated into shooting as BebeCool's GAGAMEL crew pounced on one of the cops called David Oluka trying to disarm him forcing the second cop Alfred Okikang to shoot several bullets in the air. That type of shooting was not effective as the goons continued advancing on him. "The cop changed strategy and aimed for the legs and balls for Bebe," as narrated by a night guard at Nakumatt shopping center.
In the process, Bebe Cool received two bullets in both thighs but the balls survived narrowly. As he fell on the ground, his Gagamel crew that were still standing fled in disarray. One of his bodyguards Allan Masengere aka Shortcut, Godfrey Kaiza and Bosco Kabobyo aka Cobra were injured in the legs, arms and stomach respectively.
The romping couple sped away during the scuffle. Eleven used O condoms and a red G-String were discovered. Police is optimistic they will get the vehicle owner now that they have the registration number. By the time of filing this report, Bebe Cool was undergoing a deadly operation at Nsambya Hospital.
