Ribs are still hurting for all those that attended the Anne Kansiime show that was held yesterday at Imperial Royale Hotel. South Africa's singer, Yvone Chaka Chaka, was the special guest for the night.
"And then the one and only Yvone Chaka Chaka came on stage and gave me a pretty gift. 'Mbwenu' I don't know if I'll be able to sleep for the whole of next week," Anne noted.
The Queen of Africa, Yvone Chaka Chaka equally enjoyed her night; "Thanks Kansiime for an amazing comedy evening." The show that saw other Fun Factory comedy members perform was fully attended. Ex Blu3 singer, Lillian Mbabazi, entertained the guests.
Anne later gave the main celebrant a present which was an art piece of a Yvone Chaka Chaka photo. Meanwhile, during the show, the comedienne kept on referring to her parents, hubby and comedian Salvador as part the package. Her twin sister could not resist dancing to Chaka Chaka's two songs.
Meanwhile, Anne cannot hide her excitement - "My lovely ninjas, please sing with me the Amazing Grace. I am lost for words, and we all know how rare that is for me. My God is an awesome God!"

If Comedienne Anne Kansiime's official facebook page has not been hacked, how else could she appeal for help of a child who went missing eleven months back.
A post of a missing child dated March 2015 is appearing on her timeline just a few minutes back appealing for help.
In the post, captioned with a 'Please Help' note has since attracted a lot of bitter responses from her followers asking her to keep calm if she has nothing to post.
"You have started conning already, that's when you will lose value," One wrote.
"We do not know about you, but we are parents don't dare put our kids in your comedy," another wrote.
It's now left to be seen if Anne will pull down the post or she will come back to highlight the humor in the missing child post which many of her fans are actually not finding funny.
Meanwhile, earlier on she posted the prices for tickets to her ''Iam Kansime" show slated for the 24 March at Imperial Royale Hotel. "The prices for the tickets are 100k for one individual, 3 million for a VIP table that seats 10 people and 5 million is for a Gold table of 10."
Anne adds that if you fail to laugh on that day, she will come right to your seat and tickle you, if laughing symptoms continue to fail, you will be finished.

I like it natural.."ladies with natural hair are free when taking a shower compared to their counterparts with artificial hair who play hide and seek for fear of messing up their hairstyle.."
"We had soo much fun. I couldn't stop laughing.I laughed right through till you finished..eeee a layer of make up clay fell last night. You rock!," One Zimbabwean fan noted.

Star QT promoters have been forced to apologize to Anne Kansiime fans and the entire audience that graced the Star QT awards premiere on May 30 at Johannesburg City Hall.
I was paid a lot of money just to entertain you but the poor sound, a very unapologetic and unremorseful promoter were all working against us, Anne noted in her rant on facebook profile in a post that has since been removed.
Some of the guests demanded that their money be refunded after Anne Kansiime took over three hours before eventually showing up at the venue, to most of them, this was their first time to see Anne live on stage but were disappointed with the poor sound.
The promoters behind the event have also come up to apologize for whatever went wrong.
"As promoters of the show, we are heart broken by the end product as events turned out different from what was planned."
We humbly apologize with deep sorrow and remorse for the disorganized show due to the late arrival of the entertainer at the venue that prompted some guests asking for a refund to the extent of physically attacking our team members at the same venue."

Comedienne, Anne Kansiime was yesterday performing for her South African fans during the Star QT Awards premiere at Johannesburg Hall. However, she says for the very first time in her career, she bled for her fans.
First, she got to the venue three hours late only to be welcomed by what she is terming as amateur organization, poor sound and to crown it all, a very unapologetic and unremorseful promoter.
"It was beyond my control but still no excuse whatsoever for how everything turned out, I just want to apologize deeply and sincerely for the disappointment."
One fan who attended the show had this to say:
"I was so disappointed with the organizers. Sound was tested when we were there. They are lots of venues that they were supposed to book for your show. We paid a lot of money but given a cheap venue, poor sound system."
I will attend your next show, hopefully you will get professional organizers who don’t just want to make profit and give audience bad service. Thank you for the apology even if it’s not your fault..."

"Today, I had lunch with the amazing Lupita Nyong'o and let me help you understand the madness that was; First of all, I could hardly speak, I was screaming inside, I had a thousand questions to ask but instead stared at her through out, she is so real, so botanical indeed, she hasn't forgotten herself at all and am still recovering from the whole experience. That said, Kenya produced a real jewel. God bless this lady."
Those were Anne Kansiime's words when she met Mexican born Kenyan actress and film director, Lupita Nyong'o. In one of the pics, it seems like Anne is telling Lupita that she could get arrested for putting on a dress that short.
Lupita is in the country for the shooting of a film dubbed; Disney's Queen of Katwe, a story of life, chess and one extra ordinary girl's dream of becoming a grand master like Garry Kasparov and the likes.
Using her instagram profile, Lupita said Anne Kansiime was the funniest Ugandan, period.

It's one thing to have a facebook profile and another to have it verified.
The list of verified facebook accounts in Uganda is increasing by the day with the very latest being Desire Luzinda. President Museveni, Capital FM's Flavia Tumusiime, artiste Angella Katatumba and actress Mariam Ndagire are the others whose accounts are verified. Maurice Kirya prominently features on the verified list as the only male artist.
Any dealings with a verified account means that you are dealing directly with that person or someone authorized to operate that account. Comedienne Anne Kansiime is a 'Ninja' just like her tag line. She is Uganda's most liked person on Facbook with over 500,000 followers/likes.
Angella Katatumba closely follows with about 350k followers. We also have facebook profiles that are yet to be verified and these include; Bebe Cool (278, 765 likes), Chameleone (192,071likes), Juliana (209,174 likes) and Bobi Wine with 73,552 likes.
A verified account will save your fans from being fleeced.

She was forced to report the matter to police.
