Bebe Cool is seen feeding his fans with cake at a birthday party that was held at Cayenne yesterday.

Thursday, August 10 2017
Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu and his wife Barbie are blessed with four children. The first born Solomon Kyagulanyi Kampala turned 12 on August 08, 2017 and today, their cute daughter who was the chief campaigning manager for the dad turned 2.Ads
The mom is currently in Boston Massachusetts and she had the best words for the daughter, but warned the Honorable not to hold any party before she comes back.
"Suubi Nakayi; our ever warm Sunshine. How blessed we are to have you in our lives! As you celebrate your 2nd birthday today, I can't come to terms with the fact that am so far away from you and I won't hear you sing yourself a happy birthday song which you've actually practiced for over a month.
This makes me miss you so much on this special day. Happy birthday Mumunyu; We are grateful to the almighty for the gift of life given to you. Iam personally thankful to God for the many people who have taught you so many words that you know each one of them by name.
Bobi Wine please take her for ice cream for me! No party in my absence!"
This was Bobi Wine's message when Solomon turned 12.
"Happy twelfth birthday Son. You came into my life and changed my title to father. Looking at you today reminds me of how much responsibility I have to raise you into a strong willed man ready to look life in the face with confidence. May you live to make all of us proud."

New roles, new problems for Bobi Wine and wife Barbie
It's coming to a month now from the time Hon. Kyagulanyi won the Kyadondo East parliamentary seat. He was sworn in and just the other day he was attending his first parliamentary session with all cameras following him as expected and he does not disappoint, he gives them what they want. He did not contribute much on day one, but you can be sure whatever he said could have dominated the headlines.
On flipping the other side of the coin, the new office and responsibilities have come with their problems too for Bobi Wine and his wife Barbie Kyagulanyi. On Saturday, Bobi Wine had to grace four functions on the same day. He started with Gayaza Junior school that was celebrating over 100 years of existence where he was from 10:00AM, but was forced to leave at 3:00PM to grace other functions.
However, at Gayaza Junior School, the Buganda Premier, Charles Peter Mayiga was the chief guest and a time came to cut the cake, Hon. Kyagulanyi who is the area MP was invited to come along, but unfortunately, he had left for other functions something that media reports interpreted as snubbing the Buganda Kingdom official. Bobi Wine came out to explain.
"On the same day I had been invited to officiate at four different functions (Gayaza Junior School, Kinaawa Secondary School, Nangabo Youth Bicycle race and the Uganda cranes vs South Sudan football match at Lugogo KCCA grounds).
After the Katikiro’s speech at around 3pm, and owing to the many panic calls from the organisers of the other functions, I silently left and rushed to catch up with my other engagements.
I must say it was a humiliation to the people of Kyadondo East to have their elected representative seated at a function for almost five hours and not given any opportunity to say a word. I had prepared to use the occasion to suggest ways of improving our education system!
Therefore, by the time the cake was cut, I was long gone and I think it was more important for me to say a word to my people rather than cut that cake."
On the other hand, his wife is battling with a certain group that was throwing shade at her family, which she says it's okay provided they don't involve her children.
"Me and my husband can be point of discussion any day, any time, any type of topic, hateful, or positive we are very fine with the scrutiny whether for fun or as role models. I However, would request that Our children be kept out of the immature hateful discussions," Barbie noted.

Bobi Wine's little daughter is the 'campaign manager'
Bobi Wine's campaign manager, Suubi Shyne Nakaayi, is not leaving any stones unturned, she is using everything at her disposal to make sure daddy goes to the house. It's about 40 days to the poll, June 26, 2017 is the date when Kyadondo East voters will decide on who represents them after the winner was thrown out by court.
Shyne will turn 2 in August and by then, she will know if her efforts paid off or not.
"Looks like the most ardent supporters in my house are the ladies, where are the men?," Bobi asked. Bobi Wine and Barbie are blessed with four children; Shalom, Shadrack, Solomon and the last born, Suubi Shyne. The girls have their gear ready and they are on duty, including little Shyne who is doing a good job so far.
Shadrack and Solomon are yet to join in drumming up support for Daddy.
"It is time for a new generation of leaders to step up and take the responsibility of cleaning up our politics. It is for this reason that I am offering myself now as a servant of the people. Let it not be a rumour anymore. I am standing for Member of Parliament as an independent candidate."
"I offer myself as a leader, not a politician."
Barbie, Shyne and Shalom for Bobi Wine...An official from Uganda's Electoral Commission said that the mistakes that led to the previous poll results to be overturned won't happen this time around. Over 260Million has been put aside for the 26 June elections to be held.
In a related development, Kenya's singer Charles Njagua Kanyi aka Jaguar is also giving politics a shot, he is vying for the Starehe parliamentary seat.

Part of Bobi Wine's One Love Beach demolished
A section of Bobi Wine's One Love Beach in Busabala has been demolished by officials from Kabaka's office for encroachment. A caterpillar was seen driving a few yards from Bobi Wine's black Tundra pick-up that he had parked as a way of protesting the move he termed unfair.
"I paid for the land, paid off all the squatters and have been developing this land for the last five years, but this morning, my workers just saw a grader drive in and off they started with the demolition process. I will not pursue it any longer," a visibly disturbed Omubanda Wa Kabaka noted.
Officials from Buganda Land Board (BLB) said that several reminders have been given to Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine so it's not true that we swung into action without his notice.
This is coming at the time when Bobi Wine is in final stages of his Ensasagge Ya Easter show that will take place over the Easter period.
"I don't think any rightful owner can just fold hands like that and he lets his land go that way, there must be something behind the curtains that, Bobi doesn't say," One wrote.

The Ghetto president, Robert Kyagulanyi aks Bobi Wine has added yet anotehr year today. The Bad Man from Kamwokya turned 35 today, his better half, Barbie Kyagulanyi had the best message.
"A very happy birthday to my tight bestie. I wish you only the best of the coming years ahead. Happy birthday..." The celebration started yesterday as the couple embarked on taking photoshoots at their Busabala based, One Love Beach.
Last year, the Aidah singer was still in his night gown only to hear band music outside his Magere residence, it was a surprise do on his special day by his wife and this was his reaction;
"I was invaded this morning by the Fire Base Army in what would turn out to be the most pleasant surprise. Waking up to trumpets sounding in my compound and voices singing Happy Birth Day to me was more than I could imagine."
At 35, Bobi Wine is way younger than Bebe Cool who is 39 and Chameleone 37.
Saturday, February 04 2017
It's the month of love and the Ghetto first lady has revealed what she does to keep her prince charming loving her all the way...It gets better by the day she adds.
Barbie revealed that she has been asked this question more times than they have asked her what her favourite food is!!
"How do you keep your family together and get your husband to love and respect you so much?"
"Well, I will attempt to answer you but first; can I ask a question in return?"
"Are you sure you are building a family with the right one? Did you end up with a partner who has similar preferences and targets in life as you? Are they ready to grow with you? If you two don't join forces to achieve things you think are important in making you the winning team, then the foundation of your family is weak."
"You will not be able to stand most of life's challenges if your energies are divided. It should be you two against the world. If you start by baring one another and letting love overshadow all weaknesses, then every other thing will be a walkover. To have a partner whose love for you grows every other day, that your person must be a ride or die, a partner in crime, a nfa nfe!"
"This should be the first person that comes to your mind when you see something nice and wish they were there to see it with you..Your partner should be able to look at how you blink and interpret what you are trying to say! First step to having a family that's your peer's wish is; making sure you end up with the right one. As we embrace this month of love, I won't hide my excitement! It's my person's birth month!"
That is exactly what Barbie does to keep Bobi loving her more every other day, she chose the right partner and i whatever she does, Bobi comes first.

As Chameleone and Daniella celebrated their 8th wedding anniversary, Bobi Wine took to social media to shower his wife with love praises. The Sema singer shared a pic of Barbie Kyagulanyi in a red hat, yellow top and blue pants which he summed up using the top political colors.
"She is so supportive in that even if I woke up one day and said that I was going to fight Golola, am sure she would say, honey, you are going to kick his aZz" Yes, that's my wife Barbie Kyagulanyi, a full package!"
On top she is "UPC" the middle "NRM" but the most important parts "FDC". Barbie was clad in these sandals similar to those the Gamululu singer, Apass, was putting on while appearing on TV recently.
Barbie returned the love with the "most important parts...."
"However, her feet are Rasta, Fire Base, Whenever I want to show off, I just take a pic of her and show my friends," the Sema singer concluded.
Meanwhile, two weeks back Bobi Wine and US Ambassador to Uganda Deborah R. Malac were meeting Ugandan youth leaders and learning how they're making a better future for everyone but from the pics, you could tell the Ambassador had a nice time with Uganda's Ghetto President as revealed in her tweet.

Bobi Wine's wife Barbie Kyagulanyi loves sweet potatoes and nothing will get into her way.
"Any time is tea time and sweet potatoes will be featuring till further notice," Barbie captioned the pic that was taken outside their Magere based home.
It's not common for our local stars to share pics of sweet potatoes, in most cases it's pizzas, small potatoes or french fries, hotdogs and others going to the extremes of showing avocado and sushi, but Barbie is true to herself, it's sweet potatoes all the way. And these potatoes have been harvested from their garden.
Potatoes are packed with vitamins A,C and B6 which are vital in fighting illnesses like flu and colds. Potatoes also contain four times your recommended daily allowance of iron, fibre and potassium.
Get to enjoy your potatoes, though, you should always send it down with a drink just like Barbie did.

Bobi Wine's wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi, and family spent the day relaxing in a swimming pool and this time baby Suubi was on board too trying out her swimming skills, they all looked cute.
The mom of four was in a pink costume that gave an ample view of her back gigantic tattoo.
It's been a busy week for Barbie after thinking of all birthday surprise party ideas when Bobi Wine turned 36, he could not believe the birthday treat Barbie subjected him too, he just broke down.
Friday, February 12 2016
Barbie is the best thing that has happened to Bobi Wine. With just two days to Valentine's day, the mom of four organised a surprise birthday for her hubby by getting a band to play for him a birthday song plus his other songs that include Kiggwa Leero and Mazzi Mawanvu.
It was such an awesome moment, he was forced to rush all the way down to mix and mingle with the Fire Base Army. His son and daughter were already having fun with the army.
"I was invaded this morning by the Fire Base Army in what would turn out to be the most pleasant surprise. Waking up to trumpets sounding in my compound and voices singing Happy Birth Day to me was more than I could imagine."
"Big thanks to my Valentine Barbie for the thought and to you Fire Base guys, each of you will personally pay for this, I will revenge..."
"This has been the best birthday ever and it's not even started yet. Thank you guys for the love, I don't take it for granted," he concluded.
Later in the day, the birthday boy was also showered with some water as a way of celebrating his day.

Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) on Dec 18 slapped Bobi Wine with a tax evasion fine of 54 million. The Dembe singer was given seven days to clear the amount or else it would attract interest as a result of delayed payment.
The demand notice letter was addressed to Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine of Nangabo Magere and it's; Unpaid income tax for the period-July 2008 to June 2015, making it 8 years in arrears.
It's not clear when the letter was delivered but it first appeared online two days back though looking at the receipient area, it's unsigned.
Right now though, one thing on Bobi Wine's mind is his Dembe song which he says has been silently banned on all government platforms much as the regulator, Uganda Communication Commission (UCC), insists it was not banned.
"As an artiste,I used my musical talent to send out a message of peace and tolerance during this election period. It was my contribution to the peace that we all seek to maintain. Following the controversial news of banning the song, UCC came out to clear the air and denied banning it."
"However, this song has been silently but realistically banned on all state media. I was at UBC and I was told straight that following a meeting, it was resolved that the Dembe song will not air. Many people call on request hours to ask for the song but it's never played. Some programmes Directors of radio and TV stations have told me that they received calls ordering them not to play the song."
"Now my question is, are the authorities promoting peace and tolerance or are they enemies of peace and tolerance?" Bobi Wine concluded.

This morning, to be exact at 8:45am, Bobi Wine's wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi revealed to her close pals what has been troubling her all these years and that was, skin bleaching or lightening. To drive the point home, Barbie used her sister Brenda.
"I have a sister, her name is Bre. In the pic, Bre is wearing a denim top dress. Bre is darker than her two sisters. Bre is comfortable in her skin. Be like Bre. Love your skin tone, be confident of your dark self. If you must bleach, whiten your dark heart and leave your beautiful dark skin alone."
Minutes later, she was joined by her hubby, Bobi Wine who had this to say: "Well said First Lady, you said what has been on my mind for so long but couldn't find the confidence to address it. This goes to my friends too."
Could this be Bobi Wine's next song project after Obululu, Dembe and other cross cutting theme songs like Kampala and another to do with cleanliness, may be not but looking at how he does his thing we will not be surprised.
"I could say much more than this but 70 percent of my friends bleach! It makes me sad that even when I openly tell them how degrading it looks, none of them takes me serious. Bleaching is a symptom of your low self esteem. Please desist from it, " Barbie concluded.
"Barbie, bleaching is actually just a symptom, we have to find the root cause which I believe as you said is low self esteem. Treat the cause not the symptom. Find out why they have low self esteem and address it..." one responded to her post.
A section of ladies associate being fair and lighter to beauty and wealth a reason for the so many beauty skin parlors around the city.

Bobi Wine's wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi was yesterday in Kamwokya visiting the Save Street Children Uganda (SASCU), an NGO charged with the responsibility of rehabilitation, reintegration and education of children off the streets of Kampala and other areas.
Barbie was chilling out with the children who now have a place they call home, some told her they want to be musicians when the grow up. Another just felt like touching Barbie's gigantic tattoo and that would make her day.
She went on to hold a meeting with the staff of the NGO who told her that they needed a better roof than the current structure among others. They have a website www.sascu.org which accepts donations.
Barbie is checking on one of the children who was very sick at the time but was happy to see her in a better environment as opposed to seeing her in the cold and on the streets. Inset is Mr. Innocent Byaruhanga Oburye, a former street child and the man behind this lovely home for street children.

"Friday hideouts..have yourselves a lovely weekend," Barbie captioned.

It was a special moment as they trekked through the jungle with Bobi walking behind his better half to ensure she had the best protection. They were later seen looking all relaxed after the long walk.

The event took place at their home in Magere..Other than diapers, 7 Days International makes sanitary pads, pant liners and whitelink toothpaste among others.

New mom, Barbie Kyagulanyi proved to her fans that she can go an extra mile when it comes to flexibility issues. Bobi Wine's wife was busy trying to stretch in ways that are not for the faint hearted.. In this pic, Barbie came off as being more flexible than what most people thought.
With this exercise, the mom of four put some men to shame as many would just collapse midway, but she was able to keep up with that position for some good minutes.
Before that, she was doing boxing training with her hubby Bobi Wine risking an uppercut at some point, it was then that the village belle embarked on showing off the other side of her.
On August 10, Barbie gave birth to their fourth child with Bobi Wine, however, the boxing stunts she is pulling off coupled with the flexibility leave a lot to be desired considering less than three months back she was pushing...

You can carry your baby on your back, hip or front depending on what you are comfortable with or what part of the world you're from. New mom, Ghetto first lady, Barbie Itungo Kyagulanyi was yesterday carrying her one-month-old baby on her back just like a typical African woman attracting lots of thumbs up from Bobi Wine fans.
Wearing a big smile as she leaned on the black Bobi Wine customised Escalade, Barbara Itungo aka Barbie carried her baby on her back using a simple cloth as opposed to a baby carrier bringing out the simplicity in her.
"There's always a first time for everything," the village belle noted on her wall.
"Isn't it too early for your baby to be riding on the back at this time," one asked and Barbie's response was; "It was even a lot earlier for some of us but this is very okay for a baby of one month."
"I have four healthy children that means I have experience, she is a month old. At 4 weeks I had her siblings get o my back. It's not too early for training. This just the beginning. At 6 weeks, she can spend longer time on the back than she does at 4 weeks. Little by little everyday that's how she will manage to handle more time on the back."
"If you insist it's too early, I will understand, you haven't lived amongst the Bakiga women," she concluded.

Barbie and Zuena have been seen wearing their below the knee dresses, a clear indication that the mini-skirt bill that was recently signed into law is biting.
The anti-pornography bill which was signed into law describes pornography as; "...the showing of sexual parts of a person such as breasts, thighs, buttocks or sexual genitalia." The showing of the thighs is the one that brings the mini-skirt into the equation.
The Ethics and Integrity State Minister, Rev. Fr. Simon Lokodo was asked to elaborate on how short was short and this is what he had to say; "If you are dressed in something that irritates the mind and excites other people especially of the opposite sex, you are dressed in a wrong attire and please hurry up and change."
Woman activist and former Ethics and Integrity Minister, Miria Matembe was having divergent views on the anti-pornography law; "If you are going to say the buttocks are sexual parts, thighs are sexual parts, the breasts are sexual parts, then you better put the mouth which kisses because it's a sexual part and then you dress it."

Yesterday was Bobi Wine's birthday. The singer turned 34, but just like Desire Luzinda, his Wikipedia page reflects that he is only 32.
"My life has been earned and is still a long walk. I give thanks to the Almighty every time I celebrate a New Year. It's my birthday today. Look how far I've come, " as he shared an old time photo of back in the days when he was still referred to as; DJ Bobby Rob and Chameleone was Ragga Man Jose.
His wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi had this to say: "Today we celebrate another year of his existence. Join me friends, let's wish the Ghetto president, Bobi Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) a very Happy Birthday. My only love, I'm blessed to be sharing the future with you."
In a related development, Bobi Wine's father-in-law, Dr. Kagaaju turned 60 today. It's a special moment for Barbie. Yesterday was Bobi's birthday and today, the night before Valentine's day, is her dad's birthday which calls for a celebration.

Jose Chameleone, Gravity Omutujju, Eddie Kenzo plus other Fire Base Crew members were part of the artistes that entertained revellers before the Ghetto gladiator stormed the stage at about 11:00pm.
Bobi performed non stop for two hours and at exactly 1:00am, Mr. G hit the stage doing his 'Swaggerific' song that sent the crowd wild, screaming and dancing to his tunes.
Clad in black leather jacket and a matching trouser, Bobi Wine came back on stage joining Mr. G to do some of their songs that included 'Clean and Out' and 'High Grade' among others.
The show ended at 2:00pm with most revellers saying that it was a night never to be forgotten.
Bobi Wine's wife who had earlier disgareed with the idea of a free concert was forced to reverse her words:
"It was not until Red Cross trailers full of donations drove out of Lugogo Cricket Oval that I stamped and sealed the Akalimu Album Charity launch a success. Nothing beats joined forces. You did it! You raised donations worth billions of shillings. Am speechless. Love that spirit dear Ugandans and Salute to the brains and big heart behind Friday's show. H.E Bobi Wine am humbled, I've learnt my lesson well, I won't argue with you again."

Today is Barbie Kyagulanyi's birthday. However, as opposed to bouncing castles for the kids and the usual cake cutting, the couple chose to celebrate in a unique way. Bobi and Barbie took to gun-handling lessons as a way of celebrating Barbie's Birthday.
The birthday girl together with her hubby were shooting the day away, something that Barbie seemed to enjoy as seen from one of the shots while holding a rifle with ease, no wonder when it came to shooting, she beat Bobi hands down as she took time identifying the target and pulling the trigger to the rear.
After shooting outside the bullseye, Bobi Wine had this to say: "The bad thing is that I've realized you have better "target" than me but the good thing is that am enjoying your birthday better than you, Happy Birthday My Love."
One of Barbie's young sister's had this to say: A" very happy birthday mother hen.... my strict, cute, hardworking, selfless....big sister!"
In the recent past, many celebrities have been celebrating their birthdays starting with Desire Luzinda who ''turned 25'' for the second time and Bebe Cool who turned 36 on the 1st of this month.

Barbie and the kids were at the airport to receive him but given the distance to their home in Magere and the traffic, they decided to settle at Spennah Beach in Entebbe which is a stone throw away from Entebbe International Airport to beat the check-in deadline.
While at Spennah Beach, Bobi Wine was spotted carrying Barbie on his back as the kids who were at the time feasting on chips and fish cheered them on in the background. This was a belated wedding anniversary celebration which Bobi summarized as short but sweet. "It's been so brief but sweet," Bobi noted on his wall.
Meanwhile, Princess Ruth Komuntale's husband, Christopher Thomas was among those who congratulated the couple on their 2nd wedding anniversary.
Tonight, Bobi Wine will be joining his team that had traveled earlier to prepare for his performances at Luli Luli Hotel in South Africa.

He continued, "Today I'm celebrating 2 years with gold on my finger. Thanks for trusting me with your precious hand in marriage....Happy Anniversary my best friend." Bobi Wine's message came in nine hours after his wife, Barbie (Of course given the activity at the reggae festival and the time difference).
Barbie Wine had earlier posted this saying Bobi Wine was her's from the time he knew him.
"Two years ago, my dream came true. I had waited 10yrs to say those magical words "I do". You kept your word, you gave me a Royal wedding. The world stood still, All televisions in the nation broadcasted live, All press was in one spot! At our Wedding. Like a Princess, I walked through a Magnitude of people and together, We celebrated Love before EVERYONE. Am lucky I married you."
Barbie who is about to be done with a tell-all book about Bobi Wine concluded: "You were my choice from the time I knew you well and you still are my only choice.My love for you grows each day and like I always say,You are my best friend and nothing can come in between us. We have seen it all I guess. Happy Anniversary Bobi Wine. And I love you! Guilty as Charged."
The couple tied the knot at Rubaga Cathedral in August 2011 after a 10-year courtship. The Queen of Buganda and Jose Chameleone were among the celebrities in attendance.

"He lives his life in the limelight and most of you think you know him. Well, none of you knows half of who he is and what has transpired in his 30plus years spent on Earth. I have been tasked to Author his Biography and am so honored to present to you Bobi Wine through my eyes come 2014. Another big book coming soon to your shelves dear readers, " Barbie noted on her wall.
The first book was about Barbie and her memories as she was growing up coupled with the noise the frogs in Magere could make while it rained, but the next one will be about Bobi Wine and what has transpired in his 31 years. Of course it will feature Bobi's experience in Jamaica while he shot the Clean and Out video, The Ghetto Reality TV Show and of course the 'spare tyre' in the UK who is demanding for a baby girl.
The book will definitely have great love scenes though Barbie will deliver scenes that are comfortable reading and writing. During the time of releasing her first book, she promised her readers that more books were in the pipeline, so there you go.

Jose Chameleone is a dad again - for the fifth time. His wife gave birth to baby boy Amma yesterday. Chameleone and Daniella now have three sons and one girl, Ayla who turns two in February.
Chameleone also has one daughter, Ayla from his previous relationship with Dorotia. He's not the only one with several children, his young brother Weasel is rumoured to have over a dozen kids.
The Ghetto president, Bobi Wine has been demanding for a fourth child from his wife Barbie but looks like this won't happen any time soon. Bobi Wine has three with Barbie and another child with his ex, Safina Mubiru based in the UK.
While congratulating Chameleone on his new bundle of joy, he wrapped up his message by telling his wife Barbie that she was next. In fact that night, he went with chocolate back home to try and convince Barbie to change her mind.
"Wow, uncle Bobi is the first to know about the arrival of baby Amma Christian Mayanja...Congratulations Chameleone, as for you Barbie, the writing is on the wall, I'm coming home," Bobi wrote on his wall.
Meanwhile, Barbie has been under pressure from friends, relatives and fans to have another baby following their wedding in 2011, but she won't succumb to their demands and has instead taken on to a different plan as summarized in her Tuesday post;
"I so love to have more children but I choose to instead join the rest of the country and concerned Organizations to try and make a difference by educating fellow women on how to play their part in preserving their lives and their children when pregnant."

Barbie will even pull crowds to product promos like OMO and PRISM financial services that she is signed to but little is said about the agriculture celebrity she is.
The latest from her Magere based camp is that, Barbie has launched an attack on bad weather by venturing into resistant matooke plantains that will still grow irrespective of the weather pattern.
Barbie Wine says that: "Planting season is here!!!!!With all the uncertainty that surrounds us, I decided to go in for more resistant matooke plantains! Katulepuke you weather!" Then came a million dollar question from one of her followers; That does not look like Matooke?
Barbie's response was: "That's matooke, the type they manufacture. It goes through the lab, then plantains grow from scratch to that level." Now Barbie is one amazing house wife who on top of getting product endorsements is also the director of the Omubanda Wa Kabaka reality TV show together with faded star, Karitas Karisimbi.
Oh she also has a book, Golden Memories of a Village Belle.

Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi aka Barbie - has Bobi Wine's portrait inked on her back followed by the word forever. This is another way of saying; I will love you forever and ever. A few months back, there were rumours doing the rounds that the couple was on the verge of breaking up but Barbie came up and said what she uttered 12 years back that she is here to stay.
Bad Black - Then came Bad Black who was better referred to as Mad Black by the way she used to spend before her source of dime came to the lime light. Bad Black was in love with Meddie and felt that the best way to prove her love was to ink her body with Meddie's name.
Bad Black dashed to a fake tattoist who simply used a marker to come up with a fake tattoo and got quite an amount. Shanita later identified an authentic source that inked Meddie's name on her back. Meddie is still in jail though and Bad Black is a fugitive suspected to be in Malaysia. It's not clear if that huge tattoo on her back still exists as the two fell out badly.
Others with tattoos include:
Zari's Tattoo - Is a combination of 10 stars and initials of her three sons PDQ - Pinto, Didy and Quincy plus one of a coloured flower on her legs. Other tattoos on her body, Isaac Lugudde might be of help here.
Isaac Lugudde - The Big Brother hopeful has so many tattoos on his body that there's hardly any space left though he says, should he go to the Big Brother House, he will add more tattoos to do with Big Brother Africa.
A few months back when Lugudde was still dating Zari, he put 'The Boss Lady' tattoo on his ribs followed by a verse from the bible Gen 2:18 which says that: "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him." but the two have since split and moved on with Zari bouncing back to the father of her three kids as Lugudde hooked up with a one Cynthia.

Barbie Wine has come out and scoffed at those behind the rumour and in her words she says: "Whoever is spreading the rumour that me and Bobi are on the verge of splitting, ZIP IT! I've been silent about it but the ''ulcer'' is spreading further. I said it 12yrs ago and will say it 4eva. Iam here to stay."
Barbie concluded that she is with Bobi Wine and she is going nowhere, look for other stories to write about as she told one snoop who was calling her about the split issue. Bobi and Barbie held their wedding in August last year.
Barbie underwent the tattoo needle and put Bobi Wine's placard on her entire back as a way of thanking the ghetto gladiator for the love he had showed her over the years.

Zuena Kirema is engaged to Bebe Cool (Moses Ssali) while Barbie (Barbara Itungo) is married to Bobi Wine(Robert Kyagulanyi) and last but not least is Daniella Atim, who is married to Jose Chameleone (Joseph Mayanja).
Daniella keeps at home most of the time taking care of the kids. Barbie on the other hand has been busy managing the One Love Beach, replenishing the second batch of her village belle book let alone ensuring that the Omubanda Wa Kabaka reality show on Bukedde is up and running.
Zuena Cool is into music and has two tracks to her name, 'Owa Boda' and 'Mata', a collaboration with the then Eighton and Rain. This not only makes her a wife to a musician but also a musician.
This type of CV has made Zuena utter some words similar to not comparing her with any other musician's wife as the only thing they have in common is being MARRIED to a musician. Zuena emphasizes the marriage aspect as she even puts it in caps, may be because not so many have witnessed a wedding as big as Bobi Wine and Chameleone.
Barbie's reaction sounded like scripts in a yet to be released book on people who try so hard. "We sometimes wonder why some people deny the obvious when criticised, why they desperately seek for assurance that they are loveable, why they try hard to please others in order to get public attention."
She concludes: "Wonder no more. Such people have low self esteem and they don't believe in themselves. Try hard to accept who you are and never to wish you were somebody else."
Have the wars crossed to the musician's wives!! Watch this space!

The news of the boat was still very fresh when a rumour started circulating that the boat was actually hired for video shooting purposes and that it belonged to property moguls' daughter Sudhir Ruparelia.
In one of the shots in the gallery(Barbie On their New Yacht) there was a debate brewing as to whether this was a boat or yacht. The Ghetto Gladiator has now come out and lashed out at those saying this is a boat and not a yacht.
"Tabloids are at it again, blinding me with their wrong and inaccurate speculations. Yes I did not buy a boat. I bough a Yacht. Go and Google it. Check out Regal Sport Yacht." The 'By Far' star was kind enough to tell all those who cared to know the cost of the boat that it cost $750,000.
Earlier reports had estimated it at $75,000. "If you are too lazy to check the price out, I will help you out. It costs $750,000." Bobi wrote on his wall. Bobi seems to be having concerns with those who prefer to call it a boat as opposed to a yacht.
According to Wikipedia, a Yacht is a recreational boat or ship.
Friday, August 10 2012
Now the mini yacht is the latest of those plastic stunts. Bobi and his wife Barbie together with some Fire Base Crew members were cruising around in 'their' new baby with the village balle posing for pictures in all angles.
Now unconfirmed reports indicate that the boat belongs to Sudhir's daughter and it was a birthday present on turning 16 a month back. Apparently, the photos were taken during a video shoot for his latest track Better or Worse. The same footage could be good material for his second version of the Omubanda Reality show.
The fans had become excited over the development but as it turns out, the Ghetto Gladiator has to wait a little longer before he can actually own a mini yacht.

This particular show which was the third episode had a scene when Jose Chameleone paid a visit to the Bobi Wine's making Barbie prepare a heavy meal that included meat, chicken, Matooke among others for the Chameleone's to feast.

Barbie features prominently on the Omubanda Wa Kabaka unlike The Boss Lady that seems to be preoccupied by Zari her kids and a little bit of her hubby Ivan Ssemwanga. Daniella who happens to be a close buddy to Barbie(Bobi's wife) is contemplating on coming up with a similar show featuring the Valu Valu star. Watch this space!

"This is the beginning,...that is episode one. Includes just the hilarious encounters as I was growing up. I plan to continue telling the story of my life for so many years to come"
Barbie says it will be available in all major book stores like Aristoc, Supermarkets plus so many other outlets. Barbie's love to explain things is what inspired her into writing the book.
She writes during her leisure time and she says more books are in the pipeline. The book is being published by MK Publishers. Barbie wrote about the frogs in Magere and the noise they made when it started raining.
Apparently, she was trying to say that during the dry season, that noise was not heard but with the rainy season the frogs are like demanding a collabo but she deleted the posting from her wall and replaced it with a quarter of her banana plantains being knocked down by strong winds.

The arch bishop thanked them for the bold move and appealed to other young people to emulate them. "What you have done; to come and get married in church, shows that you understand your religion and love it because many people knew you as bayaga (weed smokers). "
The Queen of Buganda, Sylvia Nagginda, Prince Junjju and Prince Wasajja were among those present. Jose Chameleone who converted to Islam recently and then back slid was also present though he did not go for holy communion as he is still under going training to be re-admitted to the Catholic church.
Jose Chameleone came with his wife Daniella. Bobi and Barbie left in a horse carriage for a photo shoot as fans cheered them all the way. They later joined other guests at Kampala Serena Hotel.

However, a close scrutiny of the photo from which the tattoo artist used to come up with the permanent tattoo on Barbie's back clearly shows that the two guys are different. It's only after the photo and the tattoo are put together that the idea of Bobi comes into context, however, those who know Bobi so well would be quick at telling you that the person on Barbie's back is not Bobi.
The tattoo falling short of looking like Bobi exactly does not change the way Barbie feels about her Ghetto president and bearing the pain to have that gigantic tattoo is in itself a bold move on Barbie's part.
Meanwhile, what disturbed some of their fans was that after Barbie had decorated her back with Bobi's portrait, he retaliated with a very small tattoo of a totally different thing.
Thursday, August 04 2011
According to Barbie, the tattoo that cost her 4mn shillings was done for the ghetto president in appreciation of the forthcoming wedding. On top of Bobi's photo, the word 'Forever' was added implying that she is Bobi Wine's forever. They started on it on Monday and completed on Tuesday.
The tattoo was too big that it shocked Bobi Wine. He decided to rush to the studio where he did two tattoos, one on his chest and the other on his hand
