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

Desire Luzinda's Nigerian lover has revealed why he failed to bail her out yesterday. He was responding to Desire Luzinda's version in which she said that the money that caused her problems was actually borrowed by Franklin Emuobor to pump in his Dubai based business.
She went on to say "This was the second time he was walking on the streets in Uganda and I was the only soul that offered him shelter, food and gave up all that I had for him to get back on his feet."
When this got to Franklin, he did not waste any minute in giving his side of the story.
"Am proud to be a Nigerian and when I financed her concert I was a Nigerian and when I keep showing her with money I was a Nigerian, now that I refused to bail her out from her debts bcos of her unfaithfulness am a conman..story of my life."
Desire's friends were not buying his story and he bounced back with more details:
"Nigerian, Ugandan, Kenyan where ever you come from, we are all one but it doesn't give us the right to cheat or play with someone's mind that work hard to provide for you..the person she borrowed the money for is my witness. He is called Peter and he gave her the money because of me."
Desire, we would love to hear from you after this!

"Helping someone is not a guarantee they will return the favor when in time of need. Be the friend in need knowing payment comes from God."

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

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

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

This morning, the two reported to police as required by the bond terms only to learn that they were to appear in court today. In court, the two were asked to say something before the sentence, Mugisha accepted that he has been producing x-rated movies and songs but Panadol denied.
Producer Didi was sentenced to 4 years in jail while Panadol was sentenced to 1 year in jail. In the videos which started doing rounds on the net around September, Jemimah is seen showing off what her mama gave her backed up by some huge queen dancers with torn leggings.
At the time of her arrest, Jemimah was asked why she was engaging in such, she told the minister that; "I can't leave this job, it's where I earn a living."
"After the passing of the anti-pornographic law, we are now aiming at cracking down all the music video producers, actors and all those that have been filming these nud8 videos so that we can drag them to court in order to restore morality in our country," Lokodo said.
Didi allegedly bought the studio from faded General Mega Dee who is currently on Kyeyo in the US.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Big Brother Hotshots Uganda rep was supposed to jet in on Wednesday but missed her flight as she was busy with autographs.
She was driven to Rosemary Courts for her first press conference and, first on her mind was Bebe Cool. It should be recalled that Bebe threw his weight behind Ellah after it turned out that the two Ugandan housemates in the #BBAHotshots were up for eviction.
"Africa knows me, I did well and they don't know him even after performing for 30 years. He is free to talk and talk. A man who is 43 years old and all he does is bring negative energy to whoever wants to prosper is not a man and If Idisgraced Uganda what did he do, he cheated on his wife, impregnated young girls...he is just a struggling musician."
Esther went on to say that while in the house, she did not have any strategy, she was just having fun. There are certain people who reached the finals and I don't even remember them. But again, Bihg Brother is about votes and Ugandans don't vote. Even if you do spiderman moves, you will still be evicted because people think about the money the yare going to spend on the SMS."
Regarding her not being close to Ellah, Esther said that coming from the same country does not mean that you should be close, Ellah is not my enemy, but we are also not that close.
Going forward, Esther says she has got acting and dancing deals from Nigeria and South Africa. She will also be singing, just watch out for Small Peppe.

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

Ibrahim Mayanja aka Big Eye is still in shock following his Toyota Noah (UAS 592 U) that got burnt on Monday morning. While appearing on a local TV, Big Eye explained what happened hours before the attack. He also appealed to whoever he hurt to find room in their heart to forgive him.
"I was part of the artistes who performed at the Busabala Festival but the DJ kept on stopping my music midway, something that my official DJ could not do. I kept my calm until after the performance, I decided to go and find out why he behaved that way, but he was more than prepared to fight."
"The car was parked at my studio in Makindye which doubles as the Big Music offices. I heard a bang thinking these were thieves so I opened the sitting room door only to see smoke all over with my car in flames. I don't know who is behind this. These guys took nothing and whatever was in the car got burnt. Before setting it ablaze, they were hooting so that I can come out but on realizing that I was not about to, they decided to set the car ablaze."
Police is doing it's job.
I don't have any suspect in mind. "My brothers and sisters who write news please don't mislead our audience.There is no where I said that Kenzo burnt my car. Let's leave the police to do it's job. Kenzo is my brother from another mother."
While making his statement at the police station, the investigating officer asked him if at all he had any issues with any one or he suspected that anyone could be behind this, he mentioned some names but that was more than three years back, and that is how some names appeared in the press.
Big Eye was signed to Eddie Kenzo's Big Talent before going solo. It should be recalled that the fight between Eddie Kenzo and Kasuku was linked to Big Eye.

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

Uganda now has one housemate in the #BBAHotshots, Ellah, and yesterday was her birthday, she turned 24. For a moment, she forgot about the eviction fever and enjoyed her day. Ellah and one other housemate could end up home unless when Ugandans vote overwhelmingly..

Following the arsonists who torched Big Eye's car on Monday night, his girl friend, Sheilla is contemplating going back to the US.
"Am hating Uganda because of this, who do you think you are trying to kill someone," Sheilla noted on her wall. "It's a pity some hurtless people have burnt my husband's car this nite."
It's said that Big Eye had just shifted to this Makindye house three days back after separating with Sheilla, but they are now staying together.
According to Big Eye's neighbour, the attackers had come for him because they first broke into the car and started hooting, but when he refused to come out, they just resorted to torching the car. "I heard a bang and on waking up, I saw my vehicle in flames..." Ibrahim Mayanja aka Big Eye told one publication.
He went on to add that the 'Sitya Loss' singer, Eddie Kenzo, should also be investigated because on a number of occasions, a Prado similar to his is always pursuing me. Police should also interrogate the DJ's who fought me at the Busabaala Beach, he concluded.
Meanwhile, when this got to Kenzo he had this to say; "Colleagues, you've all seen Big Eye's statement in Bukedde and If it was you, what would you do?"

On Saturday, all roads led to One Love Beach for Bobi Wine's Size Yo Concert.
"Sometimes when I go silent, it's not that I have nothing to say, sometimes it's because it's too much for me to comment.

I was humbled, I was overwhelmed, I was shocked, I am still speechless, I will be back with my full statement, kansooke nyweemu olwekyo, " The Byekwaso singer noted on his wall today.

Police are investigating the blaze on Big Eye's car last night. They just heard a big bang and on coming out, their Toyota Noah car was in flames. It's not clear if the car was comprehensively insured, and if it only had the third party insurance cover, then the Physically Fit singer is at a loss.
"Whoever did this, God is watching, now you've burnt my car? What is it that I did to you? My car has been burnt this night in my parking lot..." Big eye wrote on his wall this morning while communicating the bad news.
His better half, Sheila also tweeted about the traumatizing incident - "It's a pity some hurtless people have burnt my husband's car this nite walahi.."
Big Eye was one of the artistes that performed at Bobi Wine's Size Yo Concert that was held at One Love Beach in Busabaala on Saturday and while there, he got 'physically fit' with one of the DJ's.
In August, Big Eye had a sold out concert at Freedom City.

For the last one month, her X-rated videos have been making rounds on social networks. She calls herself Panadol Wabasajja and in the videos, she is the lead singer with some huge queen dancers in torn leggings backing her up.
At the time of her arrest, Panadol who was still donning her trademark multicolored hair style which only reveals one eye came rushing for the business deal they had called her for, but to her surprise, it was the Minister for Ethics and Integrity, Fr. Simon Lokodo in her camp.
Panadol, why do you perform such?, the Minister asked? Panadol who seemed not to understand what the minister was talking about did not respond. One of the officials translated for Panadol, but she still did not answer. The equipment they use in recording their material plus undistributed CD'S were confiscated and the studio closed. Her DJ was arrested too.
The Minsiter added that she had been arrested in line with the Anti-Pornography bill that was recently enacted into law.
The arrest of Panadol is certainly good news to one Kenyan blogger who wrote that; "We survived Migingo, we survived finding the missing Presidential BMW in Uganda but Iam afraid we will not survive Panadol Wabasajja."

Robert Ahimbisibwe - "Will not react to anything that is before court, but just allow me to state that wealth is worked for and not just wished. You rent out a room, then storm in at night and get valuables! Once again, I assure you that Select Garments has active court orders to do business @ Forest Mall despite these actions. We will be up and running soon. Thax 4 understanding."
The only Select Garments outlet in Kampala was closed yesterday after all items in the shop were attached over the shs 700m debt.
All valuable items including wedding gowns, suits plus a flat screen TV among others were taken. The officers from the debt recovery office added that they will even go for the only branch left in Mbarara to try and recover items that can reduce the mount in question.
It should be recalled that the very shop was closed two months back and they were happy to let their customers know that they were back in business.
"SELECT GARMENTS & Beyond @ Forest Mall Lugogo is now very open and ready to serve. our investment was never a hot tip. It is a result of our desire, drive, discipline, ambition and attitude. Risky as it may appear but its what keeps us moving forward."
We win not because we are smart or that we never fail, but because there is no 2nd place in our world. To win any struggle, one confronts many battles, some of which are lost. Our idea is "Special & Different". We thank Thee for your support and love especially in the times of our dire need. God bless you and remember your next item is ready."
When called regarding his outlet and what had happened earlier, he said that he was not aware of the amount in question.

According to the Uganda Police publicist, Patrick Onyango, this was intentional and the hunt for the car and driver is on, though it's too early to reveal their findings. Before the era of the CD's, Kasiwukira was the brand name in the Uganda music industry.
He used to duplicate music on tapes in the 1980's which could then be distributed around by vendors.
Conflicting causes for his death - Some people are of the view that the car was used as a ploy while others say he was hit by a hard object.
Music critic, Eddie Sendi wrote this on his wall - "SAD NEWS: One of the few true real moguls in Uganda Eria Sebunnya Bugembe aka Kasiwukira while jogging near his home in Muyenga a Kampala suburb has died mysteriously outside his home. He has been hit by a hard object on the back of his head. A lot is being said but NO one was at the scene so some questions are yet to be answered. So sad indeed! RIP"
"Very sad indeed. Death has really robbed us of a very industrious young man. His contribution to the growth of the music industry cannot be underestimated We shall dearly miss him, " James Wasula of Uganda Performing Rights Society wrote.

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

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

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

Afri-Talent's John Segawa is nursing head injuries after being attacked by over five thugs at his residence in Rubaga. This happened in the wee hours of Saturday morning. Flat screens and a laptop were among the stolen items. The thugs used his car to drive off with their loot.
He was in the company of a lady at the time, who is yet to make a statement, but the thugs did not hurt her. Gunshots were heard in the neighbourhood as the same thugs tried raiding another home but were met with stiff resistance. On establishing that the thugs had taken off, Segawa with the help of his house help was rushed to one of his ex-lovers, Ruth Wanyana who later rushed him to Mayo Clinic.
His trademark dreadlocks had to be cut off for medical reasons. The actor has a deep wound on his head. His other ex-lover, Mariam Ndagire is yet to check on him.
"During the wee Morning hours of Saturday 11th October at 3:00 am, Machete-Wielded bandits, horrible thugs and aggravated robbers broke into my house, tied me up, knocked me so badly leaving me unconscious in a pool of blood. Having complied with their demands they must have felt remorse and took off with everything living me still breathing," the actor noted on his wall yesterday.

"He's the best daddy in the world my everything, he's the reason I have class, he's the reason am responsible, he's the reason am respected, he's the reason am a good mother, he's the reason am smiling and he's the man behind my success everyone can go but he promised to love me until death."
"I'm tired of being disrespected, enough is enough never forget and disrespect that one person who was there for you before you were nothing."
Those were the words Sheila Patience Nadede, 28, used while dumping Big Eye, she is now in the arms of her first lover with whom they are blessed with two children. For the record, Sheila has 3 children, one with Big Eye and two with her on and off Zungu lover, she is also expecting Big Eye's twins the reason she has added the 'Nalongo' title to her name.
"I love my first lover so much because he made me what Iam today, " Sheila added while responding to questions from her fans. Mid last month, Big Eye wrote on his timeline that his life was in danger and should anything happen to him, don't say he did not warn you..
Sheila was quick to counter this with a post captioned as;
"I will never sacrifice my family for anything we can have ups and downs like any other family but I stay strong, we will stick together, many people are fighting to break us but my soul is strong to keep us together.."
Big Eye did a song dubbed Nadede when they were deeply and madly in love with Sheila, in the lyrics, he talked of his second born and Sheila's fourth born she was carrying in her womb, but now, Big Eye has rushed to studio to record 'Self Contained' in which he asserts that he is not depending on anyone.

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

Bakuli based Club Ambiance has been closed by Kampala Capital City Authority just two months after opening to the public. The night spot was closed Friday evening by officials from KCCA for lack of an occupational permit.
According to Peter Kauju the KCCA spokesperson, proprietors of Club Ambiance made changes to the approved plan and the amended plan was not submitted for approval. The staircase is not wide enough and they also used up part of the road reserve. Joseph Kiyimba, the club owner says that all that will be rectified and the club will be opened sooner rather than later.
Employees were over heard complaining to the city authorities for not being fair as they have responsibilities back home and in the club, some of the guests were seen rushing to the parking yard to drive off lest their cars are caught up in the confusion.
A few weeks back, a man in his late 90's was on telly claiming that he was not compensated for the land where the club was constructed.
"To all our dear clients we shall not be open tonite (Friday). We have issues with authorities to solve. We shall inform u when we shall open. Our sincere apologies," noted a statement on their wall.

First, it was Bebe Cool then Anne Kansiime, Irene Ntale and now the Sitya Loss singer, Eddy Kenzo, who was hosted live on BBC's Focus on Africa yesterday at 18:30 (British Summer Time). Eddy Kenzo is in the UK and will be rocking Birmingham and London this weekend.
He recently held his Sitya Loss concerts in Kampala and Mbarara among others and they were all massively attended. Before that, Kenzo and Anne Kansiime had just won awards in Australia and they are still winning more, they are now nominees in the BEFFTA 2014 awards.
His Sitya Loss video is the most popular Ugandan video on YouTube with over 5 million views. To appreciate Kenzo better, you need to listen to his Ogenda Kunzisa song to know where he is coming from. He started from Masaka and now he is global. For some reason, latest videos from the big artistes are now having a Sitya Loss flavour in them.
Aside from the fight he had with a radio journalist recently, all has been well, but then again, he sums it up in his song, Sitya Loss loosely translated as; 'I Don't Fear Losing'.

The dynamic duo have been away for close to two months but now back in town. Yesterday was their welcome party at Club Venom. Weasel's Samira Tumi is the happiest. A few days back, she was missing her boo, by now, she must have unleashed the surprise pack that was in store for him.
Most female fans in the US had not got enough of the duo, they still wanted them around. For now though, they will have to depend on the recordings on their smart phones to get a feel of the Tukikole Neera hit and many others. They have their very latest Julayina song that is already doing rounds on airwaves.
On 31.Oct.2014, the duo will be holding their Neera Concert at Freedom City.

Big Brother fans in UG were up in arms on learning that Uganda was to be represented by a Nigerian Oga, Larry Okoronkwo, but when the show eventually kicked off last Sunday, it turned out that Uganda was forming part of the Big Brother girls this year through Esther Akankwasa and Stellah Nantumbwe who are the Uganda housemates.
Trust Ugandans, they are still complaining about this year's housemates too, and when it comes to Esther Akankwasa, it's a lot worse. Back to Larry Okoronkwo. He is a fashion designer through his Renzioni fashion label and he is the official designer for our very own Miss Uganda, Stella also known as Ellah in the house.
The outfit Stella rocked during the launch show was designed by Larry and as you may all recall, even IK, the show host was lost for words. Larry will be in South Africa for the next 63 days ensuring that our very own housemate rocks the best African outfits.
"I am totally humbled at this opportunity granted me by Endemol, Big Brother Africa and Dstv! Yes I said It. Many are called but a few are chosen. I say many are cold but a few are frozen. When I said two months ago that ....see me in your faces...This is what I meant."
"Thank you Stella for choosing and putting me forward to Africa. The free trip here and fun aint a joke. For the next 63 days our outfits will shock Africa. Watch out, we in your faces for 63 days, Love you Africa and Thanks to Uganda for the opportunity," Okoronkwo wrote.

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

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

Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black was appearing in court today. It was Meddie's turn to testify. Bad Black's ex, David Greenhalgh wants Meddie Ssentongo's properties attached as it's widely believed that most of the property was acquired using the money they embezzled from him.
Meddie who preferred to testify in Luganda wondered why it was only him being accused and yet they used to have fun as a group. The case was adjourned to Oct 17.
Meanwhile, Bad Black's skin is tending to her original colour at least form the latest pics. She is currently at Luzira Prison serving her four-year-jail term. Meddie Ssentongo long served his 18 month sentence afer they were found guilty for embezzling Shs 11bn.
NTV in their coverage of Luzira Prison recently featured Bad Black who told all that cared to know that she was serving her full sentence, and while there, she has learnt a lot of skills. I'm also reformed, she added.

A section of Big Brother fans in Uganda have blamed the team responsible for choosing contestants from the lot that auditioned for the reality show at Sheraton Hotel in Kampala.
Questions are still being asked as to how Esther Akankwasa emerged the best person to represent the country in the season 9 edition otherwise known as the Big Brother Hotshots. It's day 3, but with only 60 days left for the show to end, fans in Uganda are certain that with Esther AK, this was a raw deal and a clear plan for denying Uganda the chance to win the $300,000 prize money.
It's as though Uganda is represented by one contestant, the reigning Miss Uganda, Stella Nantubwe also going by the name Ellah on the show.
Rwanda which is making it's debut on the reality show this year have a strong team. Frankie (good sat singing) and Arthur the comedian are doing so well and Biggie's cameras are following them all the way, but the few times the cameras have rolled on Esther, the topic of discussion is not that pleasant.
It should be recalled that several people showed interest in the show, it's also alleged that some personalities were asked to audition but in the end, Esther was topping the charts. Matters were made worse when word started doing rounds that a Naija man was representing Uganda.
One disappointed fan who seems to know Esther so well had this to say;
"I met Esther our BBA housemate years back when she was still a dancer, I interacted with her at a personal level and I can confidently say; Uganda is up for serious, complete/absolute humiliation!She is as empty as it gets!!!"
One was quick to answer this one that that was then, a lot has changed, let's give her a chance.
Tanzania's Laveda is the first Head of House after beating all the contestants in the talent show that was supposed to market all the housemates to Africa. She is immune to eviction this week.

Ken Muyiisa's better half, Cinderalla baby is in tears after her wallet that had about shs50K was stolen as she performed at Club Ambience.
"Had a great time performing at Ambience last night but my wallet was stolen while I was on stage. Now, on my table there was the producer called Keiz and Chameleon's security guy Pj. Who do u think stole my wallet? Keiz the producer or Pj the security guy?, Cindy asked on her wall.
The producer got wind of this and very quickly shot back assuring her that with his over a million shillings per week, there is no way he could grab a wallet that only contained rubbers.
Producer Kayz - "This low grade woman has the audacity to involve me in her stupid messages. This must be a joke and a clown of a person . No wonder she's becoming a man eater and stealer. I make a million a week or more to care about clown pu**y wallet I guess it contained condoms whoever stole it, I don't give a shiiiiiiit I'm too busy for this shiiiit ..."
With the above response, Cindy concluded that the producer had actually taken her wallet.
Cindy - "U kno what? I also think its Keiz the producer but anyways I'm performing at club One Mukono tonight so I'm gonna forget abt that and focus on this. There's always more money to make.....see y'all. Holla"
By this morning, the one thing on Cindy's mind was still the wallet. "Morning fam. Two kinds of people I can't stand, a hypocrite and a thief. But today is a great day so who cares, happy eid adhuha."

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

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

American RnB Singer, Joe Thomas is in town ahead of the Nile Gold Jazz Safari that will be held this Friday at Serena Hotel. During the press conference at Serena yesterday Joe said that he will put up a show far better than what he did on his previous tour in 2007.
"I'm here with my daughter and it feels great to be back in Uganda for the second time . I'm ready to perform all my songs and since we are to help a cause, Im glad to be part of Jazz Safari this year."

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

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