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.

Semwanga Hummer swerves off the road
When the vehicles had moved a few yards past Victoria Mall in Entebbe, police cops stopped the motorcade to allow a police advance vehicle to lead the way.
As they set off for Kampala, a Hummer pick up lost control just around the National Social Security Office in Entebbe, it swerved to the left and then to right, but since its a Hummer, it was business as usual, the driver just joined the convoy. Luck was on their side as there was no vehicle from the opposite direction and the vehicle behind had left some good space.
While in Muyenga, a few women tried to approach Zari, but were stopped just in time. Jack Pemba was by Zari's side and on being given the mic, this is what he had to say;
"All we need is the love and support for the boys and Zari, the whole country and everybody, let's be behind Zari, they are the only one's that matter at this time.."
Meanwhile, Diamomd Platnumz who was performing in Kenya on Sunday confirmed that he will be in Kampala on Monday. Its not yet clear if he will attend the burial on Tuesday.
The body was first taken to the A-Plus funeral home for treatment and by 8:00pm it was arriving in Muyenga. Requiem mass will be tomorrow (May 29) at Namirembe Cathedral starting at 11:00am.

Long-serving Capital FM DJ, Alex Ndawula, retires
Alex Ndawula has left the station after more than 20 years. He joined in 1994 and at the time of retirement, he was the Deputy Programs Director/Senior presenter at Capital Radio.
His send off party was held yesterday at the gardens of Capital radio. In the last few weeks, his Dance-Force and Sundowner programs have only been playing music.
His exit is fueling speculation over who will replace him, though many seem to agree, he was a class apart.
Messages from his fans have since been trickling in;
"You are one example of a relentless presenter. Your energy has kept u relevant for decades and made you a household name. You made us love radio and gave us company with your endless laughter through cold and breezy nights. Your name is going to be remembered for good reasons. Do you ever thank God for what he has made you to us? Blessings without borders.." One wrote.
"But what is he going to do now, the world outside ain't stable, in his caliber he should have opened his own station by now, maybe he goes into politics," another added.
This message was written three years back by his ardent follower and radio consultant, Joel Isabirye;.
"I started listening to dance force in 1994 at first it was a syndicated show with recordings sent over and played back by the late Jimmy Bageire (MC Afrik).then after a few months, Capital decided to just let Bageire play songs off their playlist. After a few months it was handed over to Alexander Ndawula to begin a club mix show."
"No doubt, Alex was the top hand in the club circuit, after a while, it became the definitive heritage show in Uganda, the show that has been on air with the same host for the longest period of time, but sounding as competitive every year as it has always been, as I listen to another edition I cannot help but say respect Alex."

Thieves were on December 31 able to make off with Roden Y's black Toyota Runx car days after, Spice Diana, another artist lost a Toyota Noah. The two incidents happened in the same vicinity of Freedom City along Entebbe-Kampala highway.
The singer who jumps and runs all over the stage like he is possessed while performing has now put a reward of shs 1,000,000/- to whoever helps him recover the ride that he recently got from his manager, Jeff Kiwa, following the Kabako hit.
The black Runx/Allex is in the UAW 311 N series.
However, this did not stop the Team No Sleep artist from giving his fans spirited performances on New Year's day. Roden Y Owentolomwe as he refers to himself when 'very excited' was joined by artists like Naira Ali, Dr. Propa, Phina Mugerwa and Victor Kamenyo to perform at the Entebbe Zoo, but his and the latter's performance got the crowd wild.
Roden Y real name Senabulya Yusuf Roden, 31, is behind songs like Kabako and Akasolo which he did with Diamond Oscar, Nanfuka, Diana and Ndeku among others.
"We are still looking for the Runx car that is believed to be in areas like Nyanama, Zana, Namasuba, Ndeeba, Ndejje, Kikajo, Bunamwaya, Kabowa, Kikajo, Kigo, Lubowa, Abaita Ababiri, Seguku, Makindye, Busega, Bulenga, Mityana Road and Masaka Road among others."
Senabulya is now appealing to his fans in those areas to keep a third eye on any black Runx car they spot on the roads, it could be Owentolomwe's. He is one of the artists to look out for in the year 2017, though, there's need to scale down on the running and jumping on stage and do music instead.

WizKid fans were all set for the show that was to take place today at Lugogo but the show has been cancelled.
Star Times and the organisers of the show, Face TV, have issued statements to that effect, they are sorry and are working on a refund strategy. WizKid has also apologized to his fans in Uganda.
"We regret to inform you and all of our esteemed fans that WizKid is unable to fly to Uganda for the show as planned on December 3rd, due to her unforeseen circumstances. We have been in constant communication with WizKid himself and are in the process of rescheduling the concert for a later date this month."
"As soon as it is finalized we will inform you of when the concert date will be."
Other sources claim the reason behind the cancellation has nothing to do with missing a flight, WizKid was paid a whooping $3m to record an album for Sony Music but on presenting the final piece, it was below their expectations. He was asked to do the work again, unfortunately, it was around the time he was to perform in Kampala.
It was quite a cost for the organisers to charter a flight from the US for the singer to be in Kampala today and be in the US on Monday.
Local singer, Big Eye, is having a concert today, he was so worried fans were ending up at Lugogo but with WizKid failing to come, the Nkuziniremu singer is having the last laugh.

She went on to thank the team at Coke Studio for bringing her close to top Naija star 2Baba and Trey Songz. Rema told Douglas Lwanga that she had always had a crush on Trey Songz so when she bumped into him in Nairobi, it was a feeling she could not explain.
What of Eddy Kenzo, Douglas asked, Rema was like; "Hmmm Trey Songz is next in line after Tata Amaal, she added.
Rema was in a joyful mood throughout the show but when Douglas reminded her of one of those old videos she did way back when still little, it brought back the memories of her mom who passed on after joining high school.
Rema revealed how veteran singer, Halima Namakula was behind her very first song whose lyrics were way too much for a girl of her age, so Halima had to do the song instead.
The show host asked her why she had to cut off her hair.. "I felt so nice after cutting it off", she responded.
You are always singing about Fire..You first did Fire Tonight and now Akaliro what is it with you fire! she laughed.
In relationships, we have our high and low moments, so when you are in your high moments, try as much as possible to keep it that way, that is the message in the Akaliro song. The video depicts a traditional setting..

MC Kats has been managing Fille's music career and other assets. They have a child together. He was also managing the singer's social media pages but following the fall out a few weeks back when each party was accusing the other of infidelity, the celebrity couple is no more.
Fille's social media pages have been managed by MC Kats up to the time they broke up. There has been a growing gap between the singer and her fans, but not anymore as she explains;
Fille's friend hit the gas pedal knocking MC Kats in the process an act she later came out to say was not intentional. It’s still not clear if it was Fille behind that post because all her accounts were still being managed by MC Kats by then.
Now that the mom of one has regained access to her IG account, she has deleted all the pics that they were together with her baby daddy.
Fille's 2017 music is a package away from the nursery rhyme tunes to tracks like Sipolingi to ‘What did you do’ which she did with Nutty Neithan and ‘Waiting on you’ with Kayswitch.

The 5 billion wedding is on..It all started with a the bride's bridal shower at Guvnor on November 21 followed by the groom's stag party at the same venue the next day.
The lovebirds also broke the tradition when the groom appeared at the bridal shower for the cake cutting....He was clad in a black leather jacket while the bride was in a gold cocktail dress. All ladies were dressed in red.
Fashionista Sylvia Owori is the wedding planner and she says it's the wedding of the year, if you've not secured your invite by now, you could cross check with her via her social networks.
The bridal cars which comprise of a Ferrari, the only one in the country and a Rolls Royce cost the groom over a billion shillings. This and many of the splashy cars he cruises around the city have left many wondering what he does for a living but all he says is that he is an international commission agent, he won't delve into details though.
Vivienne was all smiles on seeing her baby daddy at the bridal shower..the smile says it all. Inset are the other guests all clad in red.
The wedding will take place this Saturday (Nov 16) at Kampala Serena after the signing of the marriage contract at Kibuli and Old Kampala mosques.

Last Saturday was the Black and White party at the Viewers Night Club and Casino in Jinja on Lubas Road. The Sameway singer was clad in a sequin short jumpsuit completed with black knee boots, the rest of the accessories were white...
Geo Steady was not by her side to do their collaboration song so a fan from the audience played that role, he took on the female artist from behind as the fans cheered them on,.
"When I hold that mic, it's fire...Thank you Jinja til next time" Lydia Jazmine wrote on her timeline while sharing one of the shots from the event. You can catch up with Lydia Jazmine on October 2, 2016 at the biggest street party in Kampala otherwise dubbed, Kampala City Festival.

First it was Titie's wedding but before she could go for the honeymoon, her ex-lover, Katongole was busy attending the pre-introduction ceremony of his latest catch. If that was a move to divert attention from Titie's wedding, it might have worked but the tall TV presenter is not having an easy run either, some Dubai based 'Nkuba Kyeyo' is claiming the woman who introduced Katongole is his lover.
In a detailed post, Matovu says that Katongole has been doing this for a while but this time, he has pressed the wrong button. "You have now shifted your sharp appetite to my wife? Count that ceremony as a loss, if anything, you could have done better things like fishing with your money..."
"Asmart, you will not go on with this relationship with Katongole...Im here in Dubai toiling to ensure we have a better future and here you are posing with this ......"
Matovu's post to Asmart and Katongole is so strong to the point that the message it carries would not allow Katongole to enjoy riding on the same horse with his new catch.

Busiro MP elect, Peter Sematimba, was thrown out of parliament over inadequate qualifications, a position he has since appealed. The case has now bounced back to the appellate court to decide on the Super FM's CEO fate and until then, he will continue representing his constituents.
Radio Consultant, Joel Isabirye, says that Pirrra as close pals refer to him does not only deserve to be an MP but fit to be a Cabinet Minister too.
This forced singer Juliana Kanyomozi out of her hideout with this post;
"Yes his academic papers may be questionable but this guy has got a work ethic that's uncommon. I've grown up watching this guy innovate so many ideas and I've always been impressed. Yes he may have his personal issues but who doesn't. If it comes to work, this dude will deliver on 1000 as compared to so many so called 'abaasooma'.
"I think people need stop being petty and look beyond how someone chooses to look physically, that's none of our business if he chooses to use cosmetics. Question is will he deliver, is he smart and exposed, is he going to bring some fresh ideas, absolutely yes!"
What others are saying:
"If Sematimba had been intelligent enough, he would have gotten those qualifications between 2011 and 2015, but he wasted time and money on make-up and 'mama lussusu' services."
"It doesn't matter whether you drive a car in air, but if you don't have a driving permit, yo liable to pay fine or be imprisoned incase caught by a traffic officer!"
"He can't convince me mbu his accent is American when he went through local Ugandan schools. Probably the English is fluent but the accent is forced."

Lillian Mbabazi was last night performing at Club Amnesia during the Campus Night theme party and her baby daddy, Moze Radio was right by her side. Before she could hit the dance floor, Moze Radio planted a hot k!ss, she was seen enjoying every moment for as long as the crooner was doing his thing.
It was not long before she could hit the floor for her performance, Moze Radio, who was clad in a green vest that showed off his tattoos joined his baby mama sending the fans into wild cheers.
Talk that these two split and no longer living together as a couple has dominated Tabloid news for quite a while now, but as they say, pictures speak a thousand words, these two are madly deeply in love.
Done with the k!ssing and touching, it was time to crack some ribs...It's not clear if he was showing off his muscles or tattoos but from the posture, must have been trying to give Byekwaso a run for his money by showing off what he got up there, this left his baby mama very amused.

Pemba Sports Africa CEO, Jack Pemba, was yesterday enjoying the cool sunny Kampala weather in his Audi A5 convertible when he knocked slightly a government vehicle. The maroon Jeep Cherokee was probably waiting for a security check at Kampala Serena Hotel right opposite Crested Towers.
The occupant in the Jeep turned out to be the embattled National Social Security Fund Deputy MD. Geraldine Sssali. Jack Pemba staggered out of his ride to come and assess the impact. The two are seen trying to figure out how to sort out the mess.
Traffic officers were at the scene within no time and like in most cases, the two drivers are given a chance to sort themselves out, police would only take up the matter when the two parties fail to reach a consensus.
Meanwhile, Pemba was running late for his other engagements, he called for a back up vehicle and within minutes, a gold Mercedes ML 350 was on sight to take him to his next destination. Pemba jumped into the Merc and off they went leaving the Jeep driver and others to figure out what to do next.
It's said that he advised them to get back to him with the total cost for the repairs.
The sports philanthropist could not leave his Audi car key behind so the Boda Boda guys had to help push the convertible Audi to the side to clear the road for other motorists.

It was widely reported that Ham Kiggundu was selling his Bunga based mansion that is arguably the best in the country but the under 30 tycoon has come out to say those claims are false.
"It's real heart breaking how Ugandans real love to see others go down please am not selling my house and financially am very very ok. Let's clear our hearts and just invest our time in hard work to change our lives and build our nation. Insha Allah Uganda will develop. I may not be the most hardworking Ugandan but with Allah's blessings anything is possible for I am really blessed thank you God."
Ham Kiggundu is the CEO of Ham Shopping Mall located down town Kampala and Ham Towers in Wandegeya and another in Ntinda.

These are the only shots available from Bad Black's Singapore trip, the one at Entebbe Airport with her trunk and the other shot was taken on board as she returned to Kampala after authorities in Singapore denied her entry.
On April 24, Bad Black left for Singapore for a two weeks holiday but four days after, she was asking her fans where the party was; "Where is the party tonight, anyone in that crazy Bad Black party mood?" Could this have been a question for her close pals in Kampala or strangers in Singapore? Your guess is as good as mine!
This confirmed that David Greenhalgh's ex was already in Kampala. If you can take a pic from Entebbe airport, it's likely that you will also take one from your destination but this was not possible as authorities were on her case.
You do not need a visa to go to Malaysia or Singapore, it's issued at the airport provided you give strong reasons as to why they should let you in the country, chances are that Bad Black failed to convince them because how else would she be here before her two weeks could end?
And the two photos she filed for her Singapore trip are a confirmation that things did not work out as planned. One was taken at Entebbe airport and the other as she travelled back and no single shot from Singapore..
The-26-year old had just completed her jail term and straight on embarked on her new assumed role which was music, recorded a song and shot a video for it coupled with various interviews on her life in Luzira Prison, Singapore was her preferred choice for the short holiday.

Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine is in studio working on his latest song; 'Bikwasse Kyagulanyi', the fans are already loving it. In the pic, is the man himself at Dream studios. He tells his fans to put on their dancing shoes because the tune is massive.
The audio was sampled on NTV the Beat.
Still from the Fire Base Crew, Bobi Wine is suing the Electoral Commission for having used his 'Obululu' song in the days leading up to the Feb.18.2016 Uganda Presidential elections.
It's not clear what led to this but during the time when he was premiering his Ndi Muna Uganda video, Barbie Kyagulanyi's hubby said that he was okay with EC using his song but also wondered why his Dembe song had been banned on the goverment TV's and radio stations.
The message in Bobi Wine's Obululu song reasonated well with the previous elections as the youth were the majority. In the song, Bobi Wine says the votes should not divide us irrespective of what party one subscibed to.
Bobi Wine now wants the Electoral Commission to compensate him for copyright infringment. The Kiwani singer is demanding for Shs 100 million in compensation. EC has 15 days to respond.

Londoners can't wait to have the Omusawo singer, Winnie Nwagi, do her thing on Saturday, April 30, 2016 though, many are worried the curvy singer might not make it now that she will be performing with Afrigo band the night before at club Guvnor.
We all know the only direct flight to London was British Airways (BA) which nolonger operates the LHR-EBB route so if Nwagi makes it just in time for the 'Nva Kampala Toka Kwa Bala Bala show' that will be held at The Royal Regency Manor Park, High St. North London E12 6TH.
Just last night, the Kibulamu singer was performing at the Comedy Files show that was held at Theatre Labonita so if at all she makes it just in time for the London show, Nwagi will be jet-lagged and therefore not give her fans her very best.
However, it's not that the UK fans get to see these artists most of the time so if Winnie Nakanwagi aka Nwagi can make it, that will be good enough as most of her male fans are not only looking out for her music but also photo moments and having their autographs signed.
The fans will be singing along..."Omusawo..I'm loving your love baby, Musawo Yeggwe gwempitaa owange..Omusawo.."

Bebe Cool is on record for giving his views on literally everything with his recent being a post on MP's who are seeking to amend the income tax act to have them exempted from paying taxes on allowances.
The Stella Nyanzi undressing saga has been the talk-of-the town since Monday and as expected, Bebe Cool, would have added his voice like he has done to many other burning issues. Bebe Cool in particular was bitter with the dude that leaked Anita Fabiola's pics.
On Monday, those around the MISR offices in Makerere were treated to free drama when Stella Nyanzi, a mother of three, twins inclusive undressed before the public protesting the closure of her office, the trick worked because minutes later, she gained access to her office.
It has emerged that Dr. Nyanzi's and Bebe Cool's mothers are sisters which makes the DeDe singer and the MISR researcher cousins and that seals it.
The first time when the President did not attend the presidential debate, Bebe came out to explain why and his reason was the majority of Ugandans don't understand English, but when the President showed up for the second debate, Bebe was lost for words, he rushed to studio and 'Ki Ekiganye' was the song he worked on.
Just like his sister Stella Nyanzi is a mother of twins, Bebe Cool now says his twins, Dede and Ki Ekiganye are coming soon.
Browse other views from Bebe Cool.

The uncontrollable Mary Luswata is back in the country after her six-months UK visa expired. She is trying to study the way events have been unfolding while she was away before bouncing back on a TV set near you.
Mary Luswata is the Scoop on Scoop show host on Urban TV that will now be reaching a wider audience after they finalized plans to join DSTV.
While in the UK, the short TV host could once in a while miss Uganda so all she could do was to jump on to the next double decker bus straight to Uganda House at Trafalgar Square where she could interact with fellow Ugandans at the High Commission in London.
Still in the UK, 90% of her time there was spent with her lover, other folks wanted to hang out with her but they were not given a chance, they even went ahead to let her know that they did not have any sinister motives, but the gossip queen did not buy any of that.
Before leaving the UK, Mary Luswata visited Emirates Stadium, the home of Arsenal football club and took some shots up there...

The Nkyanoonya singer, Juliana Kanyomozi has just missed out on an advertising opportunity from FACO, the body enhancer company that recently signed Desire Luzinda as their model.
This was after a pic of a visibly boo.tyful Juliana started doing rounds online, the singer dashed to her wall to clear the space, that is not me, my lil a$$ is cuter, that's the works of photoshop.
Comparing shots of Juliana's behind and the pic that was posted online, it clearly shows a threefold increase from the singer's known asset.
By the time the 34-year-old came out to respond, some concerned fans were already getting worked up about the matter. "Lol..photoshop now? Come on you guys. Don't get me wrong her body is fine, but it ain't mine."
"I will keep mine, thank you," Juliana concluded.

A few months back, Bebe Cool made a 'great investment', he bought a Merc at over shs400million and it's only fair that he keeps that investment in a like-new condition. This morning, Bebe Cool in a white CLS350 and Zuena in a silver C200 drove to Spear Motors in Nakawa to have their rides checked and Zuena's serviced as it's unlikely that the CLS has made 5000kms, the time when the first service should be done.
Still on Zuena's birthday, Bebe Cool this morning went on to let his dear wife know that he was not well prepared but he will even do better next time, which is next year. Zuena should expect a jet at this rate.
"A beautiful woman with a beautiful heart deserves anything and everything. Happy birthday once again my wife. I found I had nothing to give u this time that could make sense and so I kindly request u to kindly accept my small present from my heart. On your next birthday I promise I will be more prepared. Go Zuena, go gal," Bebe Cool wrote on his wall.

Zuena and Bebe Cool were hanging out at Liquid Silk in Bugolobi. The birthday gal came clad in a red dress, sparkly blue earrings with the rest of the accessories black, including the lace as though trying to revenge on their Valentine’s Day that was affected by Bebe Cool’s tight Tubonga Nawe schedule.
The moment it clocked midnight, Bebe Cool reached out to his baby mama, hugged her wishing her the very best on her day and straight on started exchanging saliva.
As Zuena feasted on Bebe’s lips, the mom of four looked helpless and could hardly stand on her two legs. The couple later staggered off to have a more Ziza Bafana-Zanie Brown friendly match kind of celebration. And now, what is coming out of that friendly match is that the white CLS350 that Bebe bought from the Tubonga Nawe proceeds is now Zuena's birthday gift as she reveals.
"So hubby bought the CLS350 as my birthday present but because it came in earlier, he decided to keep quiet till my birthday yesterday, I'm in shock, happy, confused ehhh this is too much."
"Thank you so much my love. May Allah bless you with more years on earth. Love you so much," Zuena concluded.
It should be recalled that Zuena's 2015 Valentine's gift was a silver Mercedes C200 and her birthday present for this year is again, a Mercedes CLS350, talk of Ed Sheeran's finding love where she is...

The Still Standing singer, Cinderella Sanyu, aka Cindy has paid tribute to her former music group, Blu*3. It was an all girl group comprising of three female artists namely; Cindy, Lilian Mbabazi who is signed to Dueces Entertainment Group and Jackie Chandiru. The latter seems not to be well though her manager insists, She is Fine - Jackie Chandiru's manager
"Morning. God bless these ladies. Things may have not worked out for us as Blu*3 but I will never forget and will always treasure the memories," Cindy wrote on her wall.
Their group name, Blu*3, was derived from Black Ladies of Uganda after winning the Coca Cola pop stars TV competition way back in 2004. They split four years later. They were arguably the best girl group in the country at the time.
"Teamcindycate, never forget where you came from," Cindy added.
"If you recall your past, then your future is visible, no illuminatism in that. Big Up sis," One fan wrote.
When Cindy left the group, she was replaced with Mya who happens to be the light skinned in the pic below.

Star singer, Eddy Kenzo, was yesterday on NTV the Beat to premiere his brand new video, Viva Africa, he was all swagged up, his English, his hair style were all on point.
The video has lots of similarities with his 2014 Sitya Loss hit with acrobatic dance moves by kids and one doing bike stunts. In the Viva Africa song, Kenzo gives a shout out to several top African names like; Yaya Toure, Philley Bongoley Lutaaya(RIP), Juliana Kanyomozi, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Drogba and Adebayor among others.
The show host, Douglas Lwanga, went on to ask him about his health, Kenzo said that; "I will be fine." What was the problem? "I don't know," Kenzo added. First they were treating pneumonia but I think it's fatigue because every two days I'm on a plane, I also have a breathing problem.
The singer who has just released his Zero to Hero album was asked about his take on the current political environment, he said that as, Musuuza, he was not happy with the way things are moving that is why he had to post a 'Free Besigye' poster on his wall.
Asked on Bebe Cool, Kenzo did not have kind words for the Kamwako singer.
"At his age, Bebe should be doing a lot better than that, he should be talking of helping all the artistes as opposed to his individualistic approach. When they got money, they simply concentrated on finishing their houses instead of buying musical equipment that even upcoming artistes can hire at affordable prices. We are paying a lot of money to hire the equipment we use to record our music," the furious Kenzo noted.
He concluded by letting hs fans know that on September 2, he will be holding his live concert at Hotel Africana.

The concert was held at the Moroto Boma Grounds.
Amazingly, this was the first time Bobi Wine was performing in Karamoja. He revealed to his over 200,00 fans on facebook how he was supposed to perform in Karamoja way back but opted out due to low pay from the promoter, but this time, the singer was stepping on speakers and fans recording the moment on their cell phones for a mere Shs500. Thanks to Viva Con Agua.

Desire Luzinda aka Miss Kitone was a few days back smoked out of Jack Pemba's crib. It should be recalled that not long back, DESIRE had told some Bukedde snoops that she spends her nights in different homes and this she does for security reasons.
News on the social radar is that the Leka Kwekoza singer had assumed the role of the woman in the home at the time the official one, Sumaya, aka Sumiesolo had gone to attend burial of a dear one but on coming back, she found Desire feeling comfy in the living room with her thighs on full display, a cat fight broke out.

"Desire was found there by Pemba's girlfriend called Sumaya who had come to pick her son from there, they started fighting. Sumie the woman (wife) of the house had gone to the village, Pemba used that chance to bring in the Ekitone Queen."
Jack Pemba is the Mike Ezra of these days as he is busy promoting and pumping lots of funds in various sports activities, below is his latest ride; 'ONLY 1 JP' which Desire Luzinda is seen cruising at times according to the source privy to the matter at hand. In set is Sumie and Desire being cruised by the one and only JP.
"Sumie and Desire are both Pemba's side dishes. You can say one is 'DODO' and the other is 'Nakati'..They are three adults enjoying and living their lives their way. The same applies to other babes that that Congolese has been calling at his house," one commented.
Desire just had these words to wrap up the whole saga: "I don't give up on people easily but when I do, I don't even care to see if they are breathing anymore."

"To my dearest fans in Austin, Texas, accept my sincere apologies as I won't be able to perform at the SXSW 2016 Festival upon doctor's orders and advice. Thank you all for your concern too. My health is much better and hope to give you a great show the next time, hopefully soon. Much love," he signed off.

Whatever comes from Kenzo becomes an instant hit. His Mbilo Mbilo remix with Nigeria's Niniola is doing wonders on MTVBase while his collab with Pato Ranking, Royal, is equally doing well just weeks after being released, not forgetting Soraye.
"Eddy Kenzo is the biggest music export Uganda has at the moment..." one noted.

Desire Luzinda was yesterday tasking her fans to help her make a choice between this knee boot open toe shoe and what looked like a cream one, but many fans looked for the brown shoe and it was no where to be seen. It's no wonder, the Leka Kwekoza singer chose black in the end.
Black must have been her choice anyway that's why she talked of brown that was not anywhere in the pic she shared on her wall, well, the fans did not disappoint as the majority went for black anyway.
Below are some of the comments:
"Black is cool but the other shoe ain't brown cutie unless if l have colour blindness which l don't think l have either..."
"Brown, you're too old for black respect yo age always.."
"Black because they are now trending.."
Meanwhile, she has taken her love for green to another level. This week, Miss Kitone has been wearing green nail polish and green hair extension.

Julia, Eh MAMA featuring The Myth, Yansoma and of course his Mubbi Bubbi collab with David Lutalo are some of the songs he will be doing for his fans.
On the other hand, Iryn who did not have a good year last year as her only song, Anjagala, ended up being a replica of another Anjagala song by her song writer, Lyto Boss, it all ended up in court a case she lost.

The 26-year-old before she was arrested for embezzling shs11bn, enough to start up a commercial bank, she used to hang out with a clique of about five or more gals under their tag name; 'Bad Gal Brigade' but on being arrested, they all vanished and were never there for her.
While addressing the press on being released, the now born again ex-convict said that she does not want any of them near her, they were not there when I needed them most, they are 'Gold Diggers'.
However, the gals have long moved on and in no way seem bothered by her remarks. The one pecking her is for example settled in Dubai where she spends her valuable time t.werking and strolling with local celebs while on tour of the Dubai attractions.
The other two with Bad Black [Dora and Rasheedah] have equally moved on as they are busy with their families. Another notable former Bad Gal Brigade, Jamie JAM, is an active member of the Eddy Kenzo Big Talent family, been there to pick Kenzo's accolades on the various awarding events while the Royal singer is on tour.
Interestingly, her accomplice in the embezzling of the US$4.4M, was Meddie Ssentongo but on asking her about him, she was like; 'Who is he?', she went on to say that the moment they send you to Luzira, you forget so many things.
Bad Black also told whoever cared to know that they are still together with David Greenhalgh, the one who caused her arrest.

Socialite Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black is out of prison to start on a new journey. She was arrested in 2012 for embezzling shs11b from her lover, David Greenhalgh.
Bad Black walked out of Luzira prison at about 10am straight onto a waiting Pajero short chasis that drove her to Liquid Silk where she addressed the press. She thanked the Magistrate that sentenced her short of that, she would not have learnt what she knows now.
"I'm now a born again. All the black gals that used to hang around me should now forget about me the way they did while I was serving my sentence."
"I'm going to be an artist as singing does not require so much, In fact, after about three songs, I will organise a concert and I know many would want to hear my voice," she added.
Bad Black who can easily be mistaken for a Mzungu says she has six songs to her name and boasts of a good voice but when asked to do a cappella, Bad Black said that they will steal her music, so you should all wait for her voice and music from her concert very soon.
I will be going back to check on other female prisoners and Im appealing to government to pardon them, it's not good to be in prison for 50 years.
Asked on what she did to change her skin colour, the mom of three said she was injected from Thailand and was also taking some tablets that's why it's not easy to spot the black patches on her.
"By the end of this year, I will be looking like a Chinese, I don't want people to recognise me," Bad Black concluded.

On Monday March 14, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black, the 11-billion-gal will be out of Luzira prison to start a new journey. She was arrested four years back for embezzling Shs11b from her then lover, David Greenhalgh who was celebrating his birthday a few days back with another babe. This is not his baby mama who replaced Bad Black.
Bad Black is expected to move with her convoy in Kampala and will eventually end up in Kawempe at her parent's home and later Guvnor for her party organised by David Greenhalgh.
Bad Black is expected to continue with her music career plus preaching the gospel.

FDC through their spokesman, Ibrahim Semujju Nganda, appealed to all those who voted for FDC's Kizza Besigye in the just concluded presidential elections to join them in the struggle, however, the issue of not working for two days in a week is something many of their supporters are not buying.
On Women's day, Bobi Wine in the company of his wife Barbie Kyagulanyi went to visit Dr. Kizza Besigye at his home in Kasangati, amazingly, he was not stopped by the security manning the area thus thanking the police bosses for that kind gesture as many have actually been denied access to the Kasangati based home.
Among others, Bobi Wine's meeting was about the recent FDC press conference that will see them donning black colours on Tuesday's as they go for prayers at various FDC offices, not working on Thursday's, but most importantly the boycotting of musicians behind the NRM campaign song dubbed, Tubonga Nawe.
Many have actually put their album launches on hold except Bebe Cool and the Goodlyfe Boys. Bobi Wine is not among the Tubonga Nawe artists but felt that any problem in the industry was not good for them as a whole and that is the reason he took that step to meet the FDC flag bearer to see if they could reconsider their stand on his colleagues.
Bobi Wine also launched his Ndi Muna Uganda video on NTV the Beat and at the end of his interview, he was asked what was hurting him most, the ghetto gladiator said that the continued incarceration of Dr. Kizza Besigye for no apparent reason was his main problem. He signed off by appealing to fans to continue supporting all artists.

Not long back, she had taken on the waist craze move to keep in shape but the gadget was too uncomfortable for her that she had to drop it.
Desire has one of the most enviable bodies in UG's entertainment industry and she has maintained it by hitting the gym regularly and now, boxing is the other item the singer is adding onto her schedule. It's not clearly if she will sustain boxing after giving up on wearing the waist trainer which does not require that much energy.
Other exercises that the mom of one engages in help her strengthen the abs, legs, thighs and the rear.

Today morning as I arrived for women's day at Kololo Independence Grounds, I met with my brother Dr. Jose Chameleone and we had a good chat about the FDC press conference yesterday.
"The doctor enlightened me more about the weakness of the so called leading opposition party FDC of Uganda. Ok my fellow Ugandans, did FDC agree to multi-parties in Uganda? YES, Do they know the meaning of the word multi-party?........Is Uganda practicing multi-party politics ?YES and if so doesn't that mean different parties different people different choices? YES
Just after FDC had made their intentions known, Bebe Cool was busy working out the maths saying that the boycott would only mean more money for them as they will be doing close to two shows per year, charge a lot of money and the artists will have more value as they will not be frequenting all these happening places like it is the case.
"I also wish to remind my fellow Ugandans that you can't say no to good music, when supporting us, you didn't do us no favor, you were consuming our good product, to make matters worse not even paying for it. All Tubonga Nawe artists need to do is to go back to studio and record good music that's it.This post is meant to help u think again coz we are not only ready for the boycott but even to reassure you that we confidently practiced out political right as responsible citizens of Uganda," Bebe Cool concluded.

Starting this Thursday, opposition party Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has announced through their spokesman, Ibrahim Semujju Nganda, that they will be staying home on Thursday's as a peaceful way of protesting the continued house arrest of Dr. Kizza Besigye at his home in Kasangati.
In the same vein, he has appealed to all those who voted for the FDC flag bearer in the just concluded presidential elections to join them in the struggle.
"Starting this Thursday we will not be going to work every Thursday of the week and we call upon all Ugandans who voted for [Dr Kizza] Besigye to stay home that day. The home imprisonment will be in protest of the detention of Dr Besigye."
The party officials added that even those supporting the President's activities should be boycotted especially the musicians who participated in the Tubonga Nawe project.
"If they come to a function you all leave. If they play a Chameleon [Joseph Mayanja] song when you are in the taxi you leave. This is going to be a peaceful demonstration.."
It's now left to be seen if this will work out but at least the Tubonga Nawe artists are assured of massive support from the NRM party and looking at the International Women's day celebrations at the Kololo grounds, they are busy entertaining the guests. Chameleone, Bebe Cool, King Saha and Leila have so far performed.

"Not all men who put on trousers are real men...."
Those were the words Big Eye's ex, Sheilla Nadede, aka Sheilla Patience Don Zella used while taking her three children to school on Mar 29. It was the first day of school for Britton, her son with the 'Self Contained' singer Ibrahim Mayanja also known as Big Eye.
That statement means a lot; it could be that Big Eye is not prividing child support but that is subject to confirmation.
Interestingly, the little dog was able to notice how excited Britton was as he matched all over the compound, he could not wait to join his peers. Sheila has four children, three from her previous relationships and one with Big Eye.
Read Also: Iryn Namubiru's son all grown up
"Britton diamond 1st day @ school am proud to be a mother and a father to ma kids big up to all single mothers who provide for there kids not all men who put on trousers are real men.."
Big Eye and Sheilla broke up due to irreconcilable differences. Just recently, while promoting her Re-Plugged shows at Club Ambiance, she literally took off everything in the guise of attracting revellers to her Re-Plugged shows, the mom of four did not even care a single bit that red stretch marks were visible all over her upper thi.Ghz and belly.
We now wait to see if Big Eye will respond to this...

Iryn Namubiru, 34, is a proud mother of two with her eldest son, Eko turning 13 very soon. "And he feels too grown for my k!ss now like he wasn't crying for it just yesterday!"
"Eko is the family intellectual, dude reads everything, anything and practically everywhere....
"At 18 months he could read the Alphabet both in English and French. He is perfectly bilingual. So proud of my #Genius I couldn't keep all this to myself for long."
One fan came out to tell the singer that she hardly gives them time as she is always in Uganda for shows, Iryn had this to say:
"Just because I don't put my entire life or my boys' life on the net doesn't mean I don't spend time with them! I spend 6 months (not consecutively) working and six months with my kids, and just them. Don't take what you see here to be my life! Not everything is for Internet. What you see is just (a glimpse) what I want the world to know. Not my entire life, and my best moments are not on the Net!!"
Iryn's other son is Al.

I love the dress, wow nice dress, that dress, nice outfit...and so on were some of the comments on Zari's wall when she shared this shot that was taken outside their State House in TZ.
On Valentine's day, Zari put on the same dress with two red stripes at the bottom, her fans liked it so she decided to add the one with animal print stripes to her wardrobe.
"I love both dresses.." another wrote.
Talking of Zari's dresses, yesterday she went shopping with her baby daddy, Platnumuz and baby Tiffah, she was clad in the very dress she was putting on three years back while still dating Ivan, the father of her three children.

City businessman, SK. Mbuga, had a double celebration. It was his birthday on Valentine's day. His latest wife, Angella Birungi had the best words.
"Wishing my best friend, the man who has changed my life for the better a happy birthday. You inspire me everyday. May God grant you all you wish for this year."
The pencil thin businessman added a range rover evoque, model 2012 to his fleet as a way of celebrating his special day. The posh ride is maroon in colour.

Bobi Wine is for FDC while Bebe Cool is for the ruling party. It's nine days to the presidential poll and the two artists are seen trying to out do each other as they account for their dime.
This morning, Bobi Wine started off with a call to the artists on the Tubonge Team to use the same voice to echo out the concerns of the common Ugandan. In his message, Bobi Wine had this to say;
"In Uganda, 282 children and 16 mothers DIE EVERY DAY due to avoidable birth-related causes. They died yesterday, they have or will be dead by the end of today and the same will happen tomorrow until there is a #CHANGE. It has been like that for the longest time."
That is exactly how some one from the opposing ideology would put their message across, but that was not all, he also had something for his fellow artists;
"To all my fellow artists doing campaigns, your voice is very strong in this nation and that's why you get paid by politicians to sing their praises, please use the same voices to create awareness about the plight of common Ugandans. No one is going to represent your people if you don't. You now have the leaders' audience, TELL THEM THE TRUTH!"
Bebe Cool was forced to come out in his usual way of ducking under the "let me see if Ugandans understand English" style.
"The East African news paper has declared President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni winner, let me see if Ugandans understand ENGLISH." Bebe Cool was referring to the East African news paper article which extensively looked at the 10 issues to determine the outcome of the Feb.18 presidential poll.

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.

RALLY - Desh Kananura accused of 'cheating'
Rally drivers Desh Kananura and Dipu Ruparelia are at each other's throats following the Mbarara rally that saw Desh take a wrong route something he attributes to his navigator who was not familiar with the section.
Desh Rally Team (DRT) came out to apologise to the fans for whatever went wrong and promised to do better next time, he also congratulated the winners. If we were using Global Positioning System (GPS) that would not have happened, Desh added.
But Ruparelia insists Desh is a con man and has taken the same into the rally sport.
A con will always be a con. You cheat people in town then you even take the same mentality to rallying and blow your own trumpet that you're taking the NRC...How can you bypass a whole section and make your own section within a section?
Dipu went on to say; "You know who was disqualified for pulling a stup!d stunt like that in the Mbarara Rally, to me he will always remain a Mufere." Mufere is a street word for a con man.
This did not go down well with the Panamera boss, he returned fire.
"You have no idea of what happened, you've always attacked those that are better than you. I would advise that you check yourself into a retirement home as you cannot add value to yourself or the economy. Dipu, you need to grow up and accept defeat, or better still resort to selling lassi and butter naan."
The fans and other rally association groups have prevailed over them and appealed for calm, the posts have since been deleted.

"Spent the Sunday at a friend's house with my family. These two brothers Ham and Haruna are just something else. So successful yet so humble...perfect examples for every young Ugandan aspiring for success." #Hardwork, #smartinvestment and #Godfearing were the hashtags Bobi Wine used to sum up what he saw with his very own eyes.
Ham Kiggundu is the CEO of Ham Shopping Mall located down town Kampala and Ham Towers in Wandegeya and another in Ntinda. In the pic below, Ham is seen showing Uganda's President the artistic impressions of his multi-billion arcades and inset is the Ghetto President with Ham at his multi-billion residence in Kawuku Bunga.
Bobi Wine amused his fans when he went on to say that; "Some people call me illuminati now take a look at the real illuminati."
Bobi Wine had hoped to take Barbie to Eritrea but when it turned out that the story doing rounds was not as it was widely believed, the couple decided to tour from within but looking closely at this mansion, you would easily confuse it for a Miami beach mansion.
"Is this a palace?" one asked. "Is he married, I'm single," a lady wrote

Our very own Cindy and Kenyan singer Wahu Kagwi are working on another collaboration song that will be out pretty soon. It should be recalled that back then, Cindy and Wahu did 'Nawewe', a swahili song that did so well across East African TV and radio stations.
The East African singers are now working on a song dubbed 'Ni Yeye' which is a swahili word meaning; "He's the One"
Wahu and Cindy share a lot of things in common. First, their fans seem to agree that the two resemble, they are mothers and musicians. Wahu is Kenyan pop singer's wife, David Mathenge popularly known as Nameless, they've been together for over ten years now.
On the other hand, Cindy's ten-year-old relationship with Cayenne's Mario Brunette ended, she quickly jumped onto dating Ken Muyiisa, a father to another singer's child but things didn't work out.
Cindy is now back in Uganda following a short stint in Kenya and she had a lovely message for her fans there.
"Good morning y'all. Kenya has showed me so much love it's so hard to leave. God bless Kenya.Working with Wahu, Dufla, Hart the band, Ulopa.....all this great talent has taught me so much. I'm happy. Yani I love y'all."

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.

Messi and Kardashian were closely followed by soccer star player Cristiano Ronaldo with 21 countries, 13 countries for Nicki Minaj and 11 for Rihanna.
Down to Uganda, singer Desire Luzinda was still selling like a hot cake courtesy of her leaked photos that broke the internet in the last quarter of the year 2014. The pics were leaked by her ex-lover, Franklin, on Oct 30 2014 and for the next five months, Desire Luzinda was the top searched person as the majority wanted to look at her 'assets'.
On comparing Desire Luzinda to other top musicians, Bebe Cool is next in line, followed by Bobi Wine and Juliana in that order. As the year 2015 progressed, Bebe Cool is seen leading the other artists as the most searched person in the last six months of 2015.
In Kenya, US President, Barack Obama was the most searched while opposition candidate Edward Lowassa was the most searched personality in Tanzania. President's Paul Kagame and Pierre Nkurunziza were the most searched for Rwanda and Burundi respectively.

Former girl group, the Dream Galz have hint on outing a song together, in fact they are in studio already. The three met for the first time in three years yesterday at a political rally by Bobi Wine's brother, Eddie Yawe, who is also their mentor.
"Are you ready for a dream gal reunion? Well it's happening sooner rather than later because we are in studio already," Rena noted on her wall.
"Doll thank you for the inspiration, let's do this," Leila wrote in response. The fans are looking forward to this reunion. 'Wandekangawo' was one of their best hits back then and to date, it's one song you would want to listen to over and over again.
They are all different now. Anita first left the country and went to Malaysia, then came back only to give birth to her first born, she is known for songs like 'Zero Distance' and 'Mungato', going by the stage name Anita Da Diva.
Renah was today performing at the Kandake gig but she did one of her old songs, Ontambuzza, confirming that not much was going on in her music life while Leila Kayondo has made more news headlines for her love life other than her music this January, she was also at the Kandake doing Tompona and Kikutte among others.

Businessman SK Mbuga and Vivian Birungi have made up following the Gitawo confusion that almost left the new couple in shatters.
Gitawo in his usual style came up with claims that Vivian was his babe and that he was not aware of their union with the pencil thin businessman allegations Vivian strongly refuted, more of that here; Cameroon Gitawo 'dating' Mbuga's Vivian
Over the weekend, the pair was attending a wedding of their close pals, Aida and Tutu, interestingly, they used the red Merc that SK had given to Leila Kayondo before the Munyonyo fracas that ended in Mbuga being arrested.
The couple was smartly dressed for the wedding, Mbuga was clad in a gray suit with a white shirt and bow tie while Vivian who was holding her hubby by the shoulder was in an orange sequin dress. This was way too much for Leila who had now been relegated to position number two, the Kuzina Nawe singer just dashed to studio to record her latest song.
Leila's latest song is likely to have something to do with the beating on her birthday or what it means to be many on one man but after all, their religion okays four of them.
Just the other day, she was overseeing the construction works at Mbuga's flats in Buzinga...
Vivian took this shot before they left for the wedding...In the window reflection, you can clearly see it's Leila's Merc going by the registration plate...

It's just over two weeks in the new year but Bobi Wine's progress is generally pretty encouraging. He started off with the launch of his Dembe song which encourages peace and togetherness. The song that has been well received is coming at the time when the country is preparing for Presidential elections in exactly one month from now.
Reports that it had been banned were down played by the country's communication regulator, UCC when a source was quoted saying; "There is no such thing."
Uploaded a week back on YouTube, the official video now stands at close to 50,000 views. Before the Dembe news could go off the trending radar, the Tomusobola singer has spiced up his One Love Beach with two new boats replacing the one that was bought in August 2012.
Over the weekend, Bobi Wine and some Fire Base crew members were on board taking lager as the One Love Beach CEO was on a test drive. Bobi said that one of the boats is 'Bobi' and the other is 'Barbie' it's not yet clear how much the two boats cost but the one he bought four years back was $750,000 and yet it was a relatively smaller one, so with these two, you can do the maths.
"..dull morning, the best company I needed today. Those moments when he starts promising me heaven on earth...and he is a man of his word by the way.." a visibly happy Barbie noted.
And as they enjoyed the boat ride, Barbie's sister was being proposed to, she could not resist as a big YESS followed.

A night without shisha is no night for Weasel's baby mama, Samira Tumi. The hot mother of one was last spotted at Cayenne during the Emirates night hosted by Nikita Bachu doing justice to the pipe like she normally does anyway.
But one thing you can't miss on this babe that hails from Jinja is her sense of fashion, Sammy was clad in a blue high t.high slit outfit that clearly showed off her center folds.
Meanwhile, in all her outfits, 'Mrs. Mayanja' as Weasel calls her will have to flaunt her assets ranging from the yellow b88bs to the yellow thighz.
A week back, Weasel shared some Heavenly rules on his wall that included; No Cigarrates, No slippers, No Shisha, No Shorts, No Mini Skirts, No Music, we wonder who the Wiggle Wiggle singer had in mind...

I just want to be next to you, nothing more or less....the pic seems to suggest.
It's been a while since you last saw socialite Judith Heard together with her hubby, Alex Heard but this pic should just give you a sneak peek of how they roll.
In event of having no gears to shift, you can simply put your other arm to 'good use' and that is what is on display here. Clad in jeans and a checkered jacket, Alex was cruising the LHD Merc while feeling the socialites' smooth long legs.
The mini-skirt clad socialite had her legs resting on his giving the impression that these two still have so much fun together and they are crazy in love.
Alex and Judith have three children together. On a cool dusty day, you would see the JH Flaunt Your Style boss cruising in one of these posh rides...

The mom of one has taken to shaping her waist but the waist shaper is coming at a high price as she explains.
"My waist training gone to another level. Am about to throw in the towel because I can't breathe."
The device has compressed Desire's lungs and ribs affecting her breathing but what is funny is that it seems not to be working as her tummy is still on as seen from the pic below.
Last night, Desire bumped into a very close friend at Guvnor, she could not hide her excitement the pics below tell it all.
Meanwhile, experts say the waist trainer does not really offer the desire results claiming that spot reducing does not work.
"You can't reduce the collection of fat in any one particular area of your body. If you push your stomach in, all the fat will go right back to where it was no matter how long you wear the waist trainer."

The first ever televised Presidential election debate was held yesterday with seven out of the eight candidates participating. The incumbent was missing something that did not surprise the FDC candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye.
President Museveni was holding his third and last rally in Bushenyi Ishaka Municipality a few hours to the kick off of the Presidential debate at Serena Hotel.
Bebe Cool who is now en route to Kasese for the Tubonga Nawe campaigns as usual had something to say;
"The President needs no debate with anyone, most especially since he needs 30 minutes to answer one question in depth for everyone educated and uneducated to understand, the fact that only 30% of Ugandans understand English so he needs interpretation in at least 3 local languages every time he speaks."
This did not go down well with many, some actually advised him to leave issues of the learned to the learned but trust Bebe, he again this morning bounced back defending his earlier position in what he termed as 'simple English';
"60% of Ugandans know English but only 30% understand it..."
"Lastly, thank you Mr. President for not appearing because I don't think Uganda is ready yet to have a presidential debate because it only caters for the elite and yet the issues r on the other side more so the vote.

Mbuga is bound to get a heart attack at this rate. After being conned of his shs 70 million in a BMW sale that never was, Cameroon Gitawo, the man who 'sold' him the BMW is now dating his latest wife, Vivian Angela Birungi.
Mbuga recently visited her parents (It's Official, SK Mbuga adds Vivienne as wifey) and to the surprise of many, UPDF officers were very many at the function. Singer Leila Kayondo heart broken over this development, she even went to Dubai to nurse her heart break.
SK. Mbuga decided to buy her a red Mercedes benz, UAY series to appease her over the issue, but weeks later, Kayondo was meeting a Congolese tycoon at Munyonyo, SK got wind of this only to end up in a phyiscal fight, court will decide tomorrow on their fate.
Meanwhile, as all this was going on, Sweden based Vivienne Birungi who felt insulted by this was busy hatching up a plan.
It should be recalled that when SK Mbuga bought the BMW from Gitawo, it was agreed that Gitawo can use the car during the festival season and once done, he will hand the car to SK. Mbuga.
SK. Mbuga was at the time battling with the assault case and on being released, Gitawo had long vanished taking with him the money, shs 77m and no car delivered. The car was later spotted in town but rally driver, Desh Kananura, had also bought it implying that this particular car had been sold to two buyers.
Mbuga went on to call Gitawo about the car and why he had to travel minus handing him the vehicle he had bought, Gitawo started off by stammering before telling him that he had received a call that his family members were involved in a car accident.
Gitawo released a video to clear himself and said that Mbuga thinks that he (Gitawo) is in love with Leila Kayondo that's why he's coming up with such claims.
As Mbuga was planning on how to recover his money, pictures of his latest wife, Vivian and Cameroon Gitawo started doing rounds in what many have termed as sweet revenge. Vivian is annoyed with the man who she recently introduced to her parents and now he's busy buying for his ex a mercedes benz and contributing up to shs 10 million for her birthday bash.
Gitawo adds that they even plan on having babies with Vivian. The dad of four was recently interviewed and he said that he was close to NTV's Carol Flower, and now, Vivian very confusing.

SK Mbuga was appearing in court today for assault, a charge he denied. The loaded businessman was granted bail and his accuser, Leila, was one of the three sureties.
The fight between Leila Kayondo and SK. Mbuga could probably not be in the public domain had it not been for the red merc that SK had just given to Leila a month back. On finding her with a Congolese tycoon at Munyonyo, SK Mbuga demanded for the Mercedes car keys but Leila resisted and that is how she ended up having a swollen face.
SK had just given Leila shs 10m to prepare for her birthday bash but to his surprise, Leila was instead having a quality time at Munyonyo. The Kuzina Nawe singer could not believe that the keys to the red merc, UAY series had been taken away, she dashed to facebook pouring out her frustration on how the police does nothing every time she reports assault cases.
Police swung into action and arrested her lover but on being called to police to help with the investigations, the Kuzina Nawe singer back-tracked saying that it wasn't her who made that post, it was her sister. She went on to plead with the authorities to release her lover, posts were pulled down and replaced with an apology but all this was not enough to secure his release.
Today, SK Mbuga appeared before a Makindye court but he denied the charges of assault, he was granted a non cash bond of five million and amazingly, Leila Kayondo was one of the three sureties. Meanwhile, Police is also considering to arrest Leila for Computer Misuse Act.

After bursting them for displaying fake dollars, the Rich Gang crew have changed tactics, they now sleep with dirty shillings to prove a point that the money is real and not fake as it was widely believed.
"Just woke up wondering where the party is..." Rich Gang president captioned the pic of about shillings 50 million. Zari's ex hubby has literally attended all parties in Kampala doing what he does best, chopping money.
However, on December 30, Semwanga ws arrested for assault and theft after a Kampala businessman lost items worth shs40m. He also sustained injuries as Guvnor bouncers threw him out of the night spot.
Ivan was released on police bond after depositing his passport with the Jinja road police station. We are all aware of what singer Leila Kayondo did, she sought the intervention of the Inspector General of Police in the arrest of her lover, SK Mbuga, and within a matter of hours, this was done.
Ivan's accuser, Sadat Gafafi Serusiba (pink shirt) has now also asked the IGP to intervene in this case after learning of plans to obstruct the case from the DPP's office. Ivan is supposed to report this Wednesday at Jinja road and looking at how the police was swift to handle Mbuga, Ivan Semwanga's file could also be ready for court.
Thursday, December 31 2015
Zari's ex who was today released on police bond will report to Jinja road police station on January 6, 2016. If Ivan had plans of leaving earlier than that, he could probably end up going by road as his passport has been retained by police authorities as part of the police bond conditions.
Businessman and car dealer, Gadafi Sadat Serusiba, who happens to be a very close friend of Diamond Platnumz is the complainant in this case. Efforts of trying to solve the case out-of-court failed between these two as both sides tried to outdo each other, it will be court to sort them out.
Sadat who came cruising his black Hummer to Jinja road police station noted in a statement that Ivan along with his bouncers at Guvnor beat him up and also stole his money. Their scuffle dates way back in 2014 when Ivan held babes that Sadat was hanging out with in the waists telling them that why hang out with broke dudes when he was around!
On asking Ivan to back off, his bouncers swung into action, beat him up and in the process, he lost his Iphone6, dollars 6,000 and shs 3million. He also lost his wrist watch valued at USD 10,000. They also squeezed his b.alls. The case is filed under number: GEF/110/2015.
On being released, Ivan was driven off in a black Land Cruiser Cygnus UAX series..

You almost bumped me off the road - MP Nabila Nagayi tells Leila Kayondo's ex-lover, SK Mbuga who was driving his Escalade at 100 miles per hour in a residential area, to be exact, the Buziga-Konge road.
While the MP survived being bumped off the road, one yet to be identified boda-boda rider was not lucky, he was sent flying off the road as he paved way to the speeding SUV. The MP who is in this case an eyewitness adds that the white Jeep was following the Escalade at highway speeds and to her surprise, they did not stop to help the rider who was yelling for help.
The MP who is vying for the Kampala Woman MP seat just reached out for her smart phone and made this post;
"SK MBUGA #DangerousRoadUser ! As we celebrate xmas lets mind other road users. You almost bumped me off the road, as u drove almost at 100kms per hour on the Buziga-Konge road. It's not a Motor Rally Day! A Boda Boda rider got seriously injured as he tried to avoid your Escalade! It's a nice car but you should not drive it as a weapon! You did not stop so I'll report that incident to Kabalagala Police Station! Go back and meet the medical expenses of the Boda Boda rider!"
Many seemed to applaud the MP on the move while others thought she could have done it in any other way other than using social media. It was not long before SK Mbuga got wind of this and his immediate response was; Is this a campaign stunt!
The MP was quick to let him know that she just wants him to go and attend to the boda-boda rider who was nursing injuries sustained from the speeding cars.

This year, Eddy Kenzo's birthday falls on December 25 and his better half Rema Namakula had the best message.
"Happy Birthday to my best friend, my ride or die,Taata wabaana. Thank you so much for not being perfect coz I'm not perfect either which makes our journey even more interesting. All I want is for you to enjoy this day and others ahead. The family and I love and treasure u to bits.May you live to see my grey hair and our grandchildren. Happy Birthday my love, my king."
It's kind of a shocker that it's the first time his birthday is being celebrated today, but like Rema puts it, they are both not perfect. Wikipedia indicates Kenzo's date of birth as April 9, 1989 but his better-half states otherwise.
Kenzo's story is rather magical as stated on his official website which interestingly does not indicate when he was born.
"At the tender age of 4, Eddy lost his mother who meant everything to him, he was forced into living as a street kid for more than 13 years because he did not know where his father was. As a homeless child he had to survive on the streets on his own because he did not know anyone from both sides of his family and music was his safe haven."
Safe Haven indeed. In the 2011 presidential elections, Kenzo's 'Stamina' hit was the campaign theme song for the ruling party, NRM just like Tubonga Nawe currently, but the BET award viewer's choice winner still rides on his 2014 hit song Sitya Loss with over 15 million views on YouTube.
Meanwhile, Kenzo's second child and Rema's first will turn one on Boxing Day.

Farouk Sempala's ex, Julia Kawalya, has just undergone a buttoc.k lift with augmentation commonly referred to as the Brazillian Bu.tt Lift surgery. Julia who is steadily recovering now says she will have the biggest behind in the whole of East Africa. This has always been her dream since she was 16 but she is now grateful to God for having validated her dream.
The operation was done by Doctor Cabral at the Centro Internacional De Cirugia Plastica Avanzada, it also included the waist and h.ips.
The BBL is a fat injection technique for those who want to increase the volume of their butto,cks and do not want silicone implants. The technique involves sucking fat from the waist, hips or back and injected to where it is needed most. 30% of the patients usually require a second method of injection.
Julia is from the United States and folks were wondering why she left the US for Dominic Republic, one had this to say;
"In America, you can justify this kind of surgery through your doctor if you are too obese and it's becoming a health issue. It's very, very expensive but with a good doctor he can make it look like it's for health issues and have insurance pay for it.In my opinion, it's good that she was able to get it done however, this doesn't have to be news. I know she has been trying so hard to become some type of social media queen so this justifies this kind of attention."
Julia has featured on these pages before. When Farouk fell out with Zari, Julia Kawalya, made matters worse for him by leaking his phone conversation on the internet. In the conversation, Farouk who first asked for Julia's birthday pics was later overheard preparing to send his papers to the US, Julia went on to tell Farouk how she couldn't wait for him to join her as it was so cold as a result of winter, more of that here; Farouk Sempala's Leaked Phone Conversation

"All I want for Christmas is a little bit of the sun," she wrote. This was followed by fans who were quick to let her know that they were missing her Scoop on Scoop show on Urban TV.
"The show will never be the same without you, please come back as soon as possible," "I stopped watching the show, I will resume watching when you come back."
They wished she was around during the Abryanz style and fashion awards to deal with all those that got it wrong while others were advising her to think of starting her own show.
Three weeks back, one fan commented on one of her pics that her fingers look old, Luswata did not waste a second in dealing with her like she could have done on her five-minute show.

Tanzanian singer, Diamond Platnumz, is already in the country for the Born to Win concert that will take place tonight at the Lugogo Cricket Oval. The Utanipenda singer just touched down at Entebbe airport a few minutes back. "Am in town already KAMPALA, make sure we all meet at Lugogo Cricket Oval on Friday."
Earlier on, Platnumz was drumming up support for Zari's All White Party.
"UGANDA!!! make sure we all meet at LUGOGO CRICKET OVAL tomorrow.... but also don't forget to go Support Mama tee @zarithebosslady on her Zari All White Party Tonight!!!!"
Meanwhile, the White Party is on right now and the entire Kampala is all dressed in white, even Straka has put on a white hair wig to move along with the flow.
Diamond Platnumz was received by Aly Alibhai and other models all clad in blue, he will be joining his baby mama at Guvnor very shortly. Nigeria's Pato Ranking who had earlier missed his flight is yet to jet in.

It's not clear if this is what Zari does to clothes she does not wear anymore, but whatever the case, we do not expect a Bizzu-Luzinda scenario now that these two are sisters.
Back to the mother of all parties going down tonight at Guvnor. It should be recalled that last year's event was sold out to the extent of locking some revellers out as they could not be accommodated anymore. We will be watching that space to see if history can repeat itself.
Meanwhile, as Zari's brother drove her from the airport in what looked like a Toyota Alphard, Diamond Platnumz latest song, Utanipenda, was playing in the background as she sung along. "When your man's jam plays and you are in traffic," She wrote.
As her ex-hubby Ivan.S is busy taking pics of wads of cash with his fellow Rich Gang members, Zari is patiently waiting for her baby Daddy, Platnumz, to paint the city with their love not wads of cash. Platnumz and Pato Ranking will be performing at the Born 2 Win concert at Lugogo Cricket Oval. Entry fee for the Zari All White Party is 50k while 70k at the Born to Win.
The Arab Money by socialites Sue Ochola and Judith Heard will be held on Friday at Sheraton, entry fee is 150k and then on Sunday, Lido Beach is the the place to be for all those with purple outfits, over 100 artists will be performing.

Diamond's latest love song, UTANIPENDA, which means: 'Would You Love Me' is similar to R. City's Locked Away. In the song, the Tanzanian singer asks Zari if she will still be there for him when all over a sudden he becomes broke and returns to his village home in Tandale, Kinondoni District in Dar-es-Salaam.
The video was uploaded last Friday on YouTube, but six days later, it has over half a million views and 10,000 likes. He goes on to say that if he is in debt and sells off his State House, radio and TV stations stop playing his music, the fans who used to praise him now just abuse him on Instagram, would you still love me? He asks.
In the video, there is a babe cruising a Mark X, she looks exactly like Diamomd Platnumz ex, Wema Sepetu, she drives through dirty water spraying Diamond who was walking on the side of the road.
Platnumz does not forget the Tabloids which he says are good at exaggerating, they will not spare him the moment Zari dumps him, he asks Zari that in her prayers, she should pray so hard that her husband does not end up a joke on the streets.
A sweet friend of today is a great enemy of tomorrow, Tell me would you still love me, the camera's switch to Zari whose nodding indicates YES!! Their baby, Tiffah Dangote and Platnumz mom also appear in the video seeking for help from ex-President Jakaya Kikwete's gate for help but they are chased away now that Platnumz Dee is a nobody.
Zari will be in Uganda any minute from now ahead of her Zari All White Party tomorrow. "See you in a bit Uganda #ZariAllWhiteCirocParty this Thursday 17 Dec 2015 at Guvnor Uganda," was her tweet 20 hours back.
Utanipenda is one of the songs that Diamond Platnumz will perform at the Born to Win Concert with Pato Ranking this Friday at Lugogo Cricket Oval.

Desire Luzinda using her Instagram account poured out her frustration to ex-Miss Uganda, Phiona Bizzu, for gracing the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards 2015 in her (Desire's) outfit. This was one of the see-through dresses she put on at her Black and White concert sponsored by her jilted lover Franklin Emuobor last year.
The theme for the awards was; 'Fashion is Freedom' and so were the outfits by most female guests. In the above pic on the left is Phiona Bizzu with Hellen Lukoma whose outfit shows off literally everything.
Unfortunately for Bizzu, Desire Luzinda is branding her a thief and it could have been worse had Desire attended the awarding event. The Ekitone singer has put on so much weight lately that she had to take the dress for adjusting and that is where Phiona Bizzu allegedly got it well knowing that the curvy singer was not in the country after all.
"Thank your God that I was out of the country but you were gonna get a piece of shame on the red carpet coz I would have stripped you nak8d for theft."
Desire Luzinda was not able to attend the Abryanz awards as she was busy performing at a wedding function in Kigali, otherwise, we could be reporting something different here, below is her detailed post;
"Don't know what's up with so called beauty queens of nowadays or bit_ches per say. You work hard, do your thing and the next minute someone is trying to get minutes of fame digging for beef by stealing your dress. To you Bizzu or whatever your name is, if your boss can't dress you up or buy you a dress, at least should have made a replica than stealing my dress. Thank your God that I was out of the country but you were gonna get a piece of shame on the red carpet coz I would have stripped you nak8d for theft."
"Did she steal it from your closet," One asked. "Get your facts right,she stole my dress from the workshop where I had taken it for adjustment," Desire responded
"And I'm un apologetic, she is a beach.."
"The Miss UG PR was called for an inquiry on the mishap and he said that Brenda Nanyonjo together with the bi..h looked thru client's clothes and picked my dress simply because she has no money to buy her or rather make her a new dress. And if you insist it's a replica, can they produce it tomorrow coz am not letting this go down just like that."
Desire adds that two people warned Bizzu about this that it was not right but she ignored the call and went ahead to put on the dress, that is why I'm so pissed off, she wrote.
Desire concludes that she did not have a problem with Bizzu way before this saga, it is the dress that has led this out of her, she also says that this will serve as a warning to others who are in the habit of giving out client's clothes to stop it henceforth.
Phona Bizzu and Brenda Nanyonjo are yet to comment on this saga.

Diamond Platnumz was in South Africa to check on mama Latty and his little princess, Latiffah.
The couple took their love to cruising on this scooter with Zari throwing her head back laughing and occasionally lifting her leg as Diamond proved he was a force to reckon. Platnumz hugged the new mom so tight as they balanced on the wheels that gave Haruna Mubiru a run for his money.
As they cruised, What is Love's song by Veronica Bozeman was playing in the background. "This is like giving someone a gun trusting they won't shoot, literally trusting him with your whole life," Zari captioned the short clip.
Diamond shared the same clip with his insta fans and Patoranking's 'My Woman, My Everything' was playing in the background.
Zari is still in South Africa bonding with her three sons there. The couple was seen painting the streets of J'burg with love.
Zari had this message for her fans as they get into the last month of the year;
"Celebrate your journey. Maybe you're not yet where you want to be but you've been thru a lot of hard stuff & your still standing. Trust that God is bringing every person, every lesson, every opportunity into your life to get you where you're meant to be... Happy Last month of the year. Helloooo December 01.12.2015 00.01am"
Meanwhile, On December 18, Diamond Platnumz and Patorankings will be rocking Lugogo Cricket Oval a day after the Zari All White Party that will be held at Guvnor.

We all know the Sitya Loss video that has taken YouTube by storm and that video is loved by the world because of the crazy dance moves by the kids in that video. One of them, Alex, died yesterday and Patricia is in intensive care after succumbing to serious injuries from a BICYCLE accident.
"Morning everyone. Patricia will be fine still in intensive care. I would like to thank the Case clinic team for the love and ut most care they have shown Patricia. With more prayers she is going to be fine In Sha Allah. For now, we are organizing a bigger place where we can all gather and pay our last respect to Alex so I will be informing you very soon. Thank you #prayforpatricia"
That is the latest communication from Big Talent Boss, Eddy Kenzo on the Sitya Loss kids this morning. Alex Sempijja, 14, died yesterday from a bicycle accident while Patricia is in a critical condition at Case Hospital on Buganda road in Kampala.
Alex was riding a bicycle with Patricia Nabakooza (12) that failed to break leading them into a ditch. They had just finished their primary seven. Eddy Kenzo was called on Monday night to rush to Rubaga hospital where he found that Alex had died, he then transferred Patricia to Case Clinic for further treatment.
"I started working with Alex way back in the days of Mundeke Numbe, Zivuga, Jambole, Sitya Loss and recently in the SoGood video. They were involved in an accident with Patricia the girl also in the Sitya Loss video. Right now we are at Case Clinic, doctors are trying their best to see that her life is saved. May the Great Lord see us through this hard situation. RIP Alex My brother. Oh Gold!!!"
"Doctors said Patricia will be fine. But she is still in intensive care let's keep praying," Kenzo added.

Katsha De Bank real name Katumba Shaffic is battling with a R20million fraud case in South Africa, he will appear again in court on December 4, 2015.
His pregnant bae Shakira De Banks who will be due in two-and-half months had some words of encouragement to the father of her unborn child and she is convinced their baby will have the dad's looks.
"Am very sure our son is gonna look exactly like his cute papa, I can't wait to see my two boys playing in the same house, aww I just can't wait Inshallah am blessed to call this humble, loving, respecting and caring man, the father of my unborn son, how I love him, Im sure the big Allah is gonna keep us together forever, can't wait to see you boo.."
A few hours after Katsha was apprehended, a post was made on his wall that those were just rumors, but his followers demanded that he makes a post with a pic but that was not possible at that point in time. The person running the facebook account later put up a one week old Instagram pic of Katsha in the gym but that did little in saving the situation.
His being a foreigner puts him in the flight risk category which is the more reason he failed to secure bail in the first 48 hours. The presiding officer must be sure that once the accused is granted bail, they do not leave the country, so those details just make it impossible for him to be in Uganda in under a month for the Money Gold Party.
"May be 2Pac was right, may be It's me against the world," is the last post on his wall but this is not new, we've seen it with Meddie Ssentongo and Bad Black, they could still make updates from prison.
Friday, November 27 2015
Katumba Shaffic aka Katsha was this morning arraigned in court with four others on fraud charges. Efforts of trying to use his phone to tell whoever cared that these were rumors was watered down by this pic which is a shadow of his former self.
Katsha's girlfriend, Shakira De'Bank who returned from South Africa three weeks back is heavily-pregnant with the Sangoma's first child, a baby boy who is due on January 14 or there about.
If The Money Gold Party is to take place on Dec 30, Katsha could be missing in action depending on how events unfold. If he secures bail, he could be in Uganda for the party that was to see lots of cash exchanging hands but that might not be possible as he now requires most of that money to pay off his legal team.
Meanwhile, Irene Ntale, Bebe Cool, Jose Chameleone and Sheebah have so far been confirmed as the artists to perform on that day.
Bebe Cool and Katsha are best of friends and when he was in South Africa for the shooting of his Killin It video, Katsha was with him but the vehicle they were using did not bear the 'Katsha' registration plates like it has always been.

This Saturday, fans will be deciding whether to go for spices or fillets..Diana Namukwaya aka Spice Diana and Fille Muthoni will be having performances on the same day.
The Onsanula singer will be celebrating her first year in the music industry at Silk Lounge while Fille will be at Laftaz swimming pool launching her wedding meetings in what they have termed as 'The Fille Music Experience'. The No Money singer will be telling her fans when her wedding with MC Kats will be taking place.
MC Kats manages Fille, they also have a child together.
Fille is behind tracks like; Where Have You Been, I need You, Double Trouble among others..."Been cooking a lot of things for you my lovers, make a date with me this Saturday," Fille noted.
On the hand, Spice Diana who is behind tracks like; Onsanula, Koona that she did with Pallaso, Tekinanta to mention but a few will be performing all those plus her very old ones way before you even knew her in that night. Spice Diana has many songs per say but the Onsanula hit has made her just enough in this one year she will be celebrating this Saturday.

The dad of three was spotted in the company of Katsha De Bank and Gagamel CEO Bebe Cool who had travelled down South for the shooting of his Killin It video.
Ivan has for some reason failed to replace Zari, Katsha's pregnant babe is currently in Uganda while Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema is still in the US receiving postpartum care, the boys were all by themselves.
Back to the subject matter, Ivan looked a lot darker than he looks now, we hope he is not taking the avenue of "If it ain't white, it ain't right"
We've compared an earlier pic of Ivan and Katsha a few months back, there was not much difference in their skin complexion than there is now!!!

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.

Madiba bar boss, Darius Mugisha, was this morning having a stand-off with a driver in Kiwatule who left him nursing minor injuries. Using his facebook account, Darius went on to explain the ordeal. The post was shared on several social portfolios and some TV stations.
Bobi Wine was among those who stood with Darius following this very unfortunate incident, he also revealed that a few days back, he was driving with some of his hit songs blasting out of the Tundra pickup when he was approached, slapped and told to turn down the volume.
"Same thing happened to me recently, some guy walked up to me and slapped me a few times and ordered me to reduce the volume of my car music. I know the guy and I reported to police, naye maama... Mbu they're still investigating.."

The Sili Zari singer, Sheebah Karungi, has these words inscribed on her back: 'I'm Strong, I'm Worthy, I'm Beautiful, I'm Imperfect and I'm Me all describing who she is. The Otubatisa singer also has a finger tattoo of her short name; 'Shee' on her index finger. We are also told she has another tattoo some where else, but it's gorgeous.
Just yesterday, Sheebah underwent the painful needle to have a, Sheebaholics, tattoo which is a special name for the Sheebah Karungi fans. The next time you see Sheebah wearing very little, just know she is showing off her rib cage tattoo.
"Hey Sheebaholics!! This is for you! I love you, Appreciate you and I got you at heart. Tomorrow it's making a week. I can't wait for it to heal so you can see it," she captioned the shot.

The Kuzina Nawe singer, Leila Kayondo, is still very upset after her boo, SK Mbuga decided to visit the parents of Vivienne Birungi just after months of dating and yet, it's been close to three years when Leila has been moving out with SK but the same is yet to happen.
The frustration on Leila cannot be missed as revealed by her failed makeup on the day SK visited Vivienne's parents. The pics don't only contrast each other but you can clearly tell, all was not well with Leila that day.
"Who ruined Leila's beauty with that makeup, it ain't good at all," was one of the comments on the pic which she took with best friend, Hellen Lukoma, who has by the way been very supportive during this time.
Away from the bad makeup day, Leila has this model who looks exactly like her ranging from the dark gums, nose piercing, the eyes and so on, you could be fooled into thinking they are twin-sisters, she's called Katrina. A day after Leila's heartbreak, she went on to post a pic below (inset) that left the Tompona singer's fans in shock.
Initially, they thought Leila had joined the take-it-off team but it was this lookalike friend of hers.. Leila actually knows it and she jokes about it. In this photo (Katrina and Leila) the singer asks her fans to tell her who the real Leila is by looking at the pic.

Gossip queen, Mary Luswata is contemplating on going to the UK after her stint at the Industrial area based Urban TV ended. Unconfirmed reports indicate, she resigned.
A few days back, she was sending a shout out to a close friend whose nud8s leaked a few months ago, they seem to get along.
"I Met you and I was the talk of Kampala, you treated me with respect and love, two qualities that I only got from my close friends then. My work turned me into a monster in people's eyes but you welcomed me into your home even when you didn't know me and from then on you became one of my favorite people."
"I will endorse you a million times if I have to because you deserve the best. I admire your humility and your good heart. I have never asked people to even vote for me but for you I will beg them to.."
Whatever brought these two strangers together can be spared for another day. Socialites like Zari, Judith Heard and others have had it all with Mary Luswata and when it comes to artistes especially the female one's their prayer has always been that the Scoop on Scoop show on Urban TV be scrapped.

SK Mbuga loves his women and his religion allows him up to four after all. He dumped some that include Leila's sister and now, Vivienne Birungi, is officially onto that list.
And just in case you were wondering, Vivienne is pregnant, so they had to get on with this pretty fast. The pre-introduction ceremony was held yesterday and the introduction is slated for December 27 and the wedding will follow shortly after.
Leila's elder sister, Fatumah, should be having the last laugh now. This was the very state she was in when Leila got on board in 2014 and now, Vivienne is causing Leila Kayondo sleepless nights.
The function was tightly guarded just in case Leila's camp had any funny ideas of sabotaging the event from going on as planned.
Meanwhile, as all this was going on, Leila was buried in looking for votes for her nod for the 'Most Stylish Female Celebrity of the Year' in the Abryanz style and fashion awards 2015.
In March this year, it was when it became public that SK and Vivienne were an item, Leila tried to intervene but she instead got slapped in the eye and this was the post that followed from SK's timeline.."When you have a reason to walk away never look back for it's better to get lost moving on than to get stuck with the wrong person."
These folks from South Africa are never short of drama. Ivan has lost Zari to singer Diamond Platnumz, Ken Muyisa is doing Cindy just right and Katsha who seems to be giving all of them a run for their money was recently looking for love, he found someone, and that someone (Shakira) is heavily-pregnant weeks later.

Learning never stops, Zuena is a mom of three but this did not stop her from paying Robin Kisti a visit to share experiences and how it all went down. Robin who is in the US gave birth to a baby girl three days back and in a matter of days or hours, Zuena will give birth to her fourth child.
"Visited Robin Kisti in hospital today, both mum and baby are doing well. Congratulations again Robin baby is surely beautiful," Zuena noted.
As Robin continues to nurse her stitches, Zuena is having issues with close pals who have made it a point that they call her on a daily just to find out if she has delivered, and the mere fact that they don't even say hello makes matters worse, Zuena added.
Meanwhile, one particular fan decided to spice things up by putting the new born and the unborn baby news aside and diverted all the attention to Caysan; "I can't stop looking at Caysan, he is so cute..", we couldn't agree more. Caysan is Bebe Cool and Zuena's third born and has been with mom all these months while baby daddy, is busy with the Tubonga Nawe project.

On Thursday night, Zuena showed off her baby bump in this revealing outfit while appealing to her close friends asking them to be patient with her.
Close friends have been calling Zuena to find out if she has given birth or not but to her utter shock, they don't even say hello, they just get straight to the point.
"I don't even say hello anymore, every call begins with 'no baby yet'...Keep calm," she wrote on her timeline. Bebe Cool's wife is fit to burst and it's just a matter of days or even hours if her dress code is anything to go by.
However, the ex-NTV Life Stories host was told to go back and change as that outfit was way too much for a mom of four...

It all started with a message from Kleith Kyatuhaire, a fashion host with NTV to Pallaso letting him know of how her night watchman is so into his music...
"Halo Pallaso, I wanted to tell you that our "Asakari" is your biggesttttt fan, he has all your songs, plays them every night. Thank you for keeping him awake."
This did not go down well with some of Pallaso's fans who wondered whether the fashion critic meant that Pallaso's music only appealed to just a section of people.
Pallaso's fans continued to roast her, she then edited the message to reflect that she also likes Pallaso's music; 'Grown to like your music too.."
The former T-Nation host went on to cite songs like Koona which Pallaso did with Spice Diana as one of her best but some fans were not convinced.
Pallaso thanked Kleith for the message, but one fan wrote this; "I think this is a diss though, watch critically, it's sarcasm."

"Getting waxed especially bikini waxing is like taking a knife and stabbing yourself over and over again in the same spot! With that said; I'm still wondering why I drive to the waxing parlor every 2 weeks to go through that excruciating pain, well I suppose it's like child birth....the after effects are extremely rewarding, Ya'll should try it...the men too."
"I'm just naturally a hairy person, so I do it every 2 weeks," Pherrie Kim who ended her holiday a few days back told another ardent fan of bikini waxing.
One of her close pals who tried waxing while seven months pregnant got false labour pains immediately. Most of these hair studios in Kampala do hot and cold waxing, so depending on your skin type, you could visit a therapist to recommend what is ideal for you.
While in Kampala, Pherrie Kimbugwe Lubwama continues doing her job that she relinquished last year to her niece, Natasha Kayondo. In October for example, she was promoting the Music star experience with Jamal Wasswa that was held at Guvnor last Friday.
She is now back to doing what she does best, taking care of her hubby, Abdul Lubwama. Airport authorities were amused at the many Chapatis and samosas she carried with her, it will last them some good months before they can replenish stock.

Just Yesterday, our very own Radio and Weasel were showered with love when fans attended their Juice Explosion show in droves.
Before the dynamic duo could step on stage, they were so excited with the massive turn up at Freedom City. "Gratitude is all we are feeling right now. We can not thank you enough for the massive turn up, Stepping on stage soon."
On recovering from the hectic activity today, the duo took to facebook to thank their fans.."No words can express, no act of gratitude can relay, no gift can represent the love and support you showed us at Freedom City."
Chameleone also joined in thanking the fans.."Thanks everybody that turned up, Freedom City Dome, had to bow down."

Peter Kanyike aka Peter Miles is supplementing his music career with a boat rental business. The Road Block CEO has opened up yet another business, Road Block Marines, that will be in handling his speed boat rentals. "For as low as $100, you can have the speed boat for the whole day," the Nyinimu singer noted.
One asked if that price included fuel, he said YES...Another fan has already booked one for his birthday on December 19. Some sources were of the view that Peter Miles was quitting music citing competition from new artists but the Entebbe based artist had this to say;
"I usually write this in songs but felt I should write this personal experience and share it with you. Now listen my lovely people when you get this feeling that your achieving and new prosperous goals are coming your way, stay away from negative energy this negativity sometimes comes from close people and friends in our lives they will keep telling you whose doing better than you pretending to be giving you news, this negative energy can be transmitted to you and block your progress since you won't appreciate what you've achieved so far, hence killing your bigger dream."
"They'll keep trying to find out what you're up to and what your achievements are so they can crush your dreams through speech, but believe me when you stay away from these negative people you'll realize that your dreams will slowly become reality trust me I'm a living testimony, if you can't do away with these kind of people coz sometimes they are just in our lives and wont leave, stay away as soon as you feel certain doors are opening and then you can meet them after you've achieved that seasonal dream. Blessings prevail and good luck while you deal with bad mind people."
When not in studio, the Blessings star will be spending his valuable time farming again in the company of his very good friend.

Civil rights activist, Frank Gashumba, has appealed to ladies out there who may have remarkable similarities with Brenda Nalubega to come out and pin Pastor Yiga. "You should not be worried about meeting the legal costs, that cost is on us," Gashumba noted.
This is coming at the time when Maggie Kayima commonly known as Nabbi Omukazi told one publication that close to 30 women were abused by the Pastor who is currently battling child neglect charges in the high court.
"They choose titles at their will, they call themselves; Bishops, Evangelists, Apostles, Pastors and Prophets only to loot, kill, rob and rape using the most powerful person's name on this planet called Jesus Christ."
"They exploit the poor, ignorant, hopeless now one of their victims by the name of Nalubega Brenda who alleged that she was raped and infected with a deadly virus called HIV by "Pastor Yiga" (Abizayo), has an 8 year boy," Gashumba noted on his wall.
Like he did for Aisha Nabukeera, Gashumba, under his Sisimuka Uganda is now coordinating a campaign to help Brenda get some money for medication.
"The best you can do is getting justice for the lady, not again taking the little we have to pay for the wrong deeds of Yiga, if proven guilty, he should pay for the victims treatment and other related costs," One wrote.
Frank Gashumba will this morning be live on 87.9FM.

After his successful show at Lugogo Cricket Oval last Friday, it was time for Ne-Yo to catch up with the Kampala attractions. He stepped out clad in his long-johns that left many Kampalans excited, some actually thought they were leggings. The Let Me Love You singer was at National Theatre shopping for souvenirs that he will be taking with him. He also appreciated the art pieces while there..."I love Uganda, Amazing Ugandan art," he tweeted.
Ne-Yo, real name Shaffer Chimere Smith later proceeded to Sky Lounge and Restaurant for lunch in the company of RnB singer, Navio, Maurice Kirya and promoter Ali Alybhai who was responsible for his coming to Kampala.

Miss Uganda 2003/04, Aysha Salma Nassanga, has responded to fans accusing her of bleaching. It all started with this post on her wall; "Drama does not just walk into your life, either you create it or associate with it.."
The post was accompanied by a white-top and floral bottom pic of back then showing the ex-beauty queen with a light skinned face and dark legs. This got keyboards and smartphones very busy.
"Could this be photoshop," one wrote. "No, it's effects of cheap bleaching," another responded. This forced the beauty queen to pull out her very latest orange bikini shot captioned as; 'Muja KubaBulungi' meaning; "You'll be fine."
"She has aged so fast and she is pencil thin, not a good look, eat some food instead of wasting money on bleaching agents" another wrote. The ex beauty who is in the US hanging out with her latest catch pulled out another cropped shot of her light skinned face with these words; "Take a second look honey, is this aging so fast ..lol"
However, on realizing that the comments were not about to stop, she took a back seat and just kept on reading comments plus liking those that seemed to compliment her.
"It's funny how fellow women like putting each other down, they are just miserable," she concluded.

Chameleone was yesterday appearing on NTV the Beat explaining to his fans and the country at large why he supports President Museveni and nothing was about to get into his way.
The Moto Moto singer who has been singing for the last 15 years said that in this Tubonge issue, he is representing himself as Joseph Mayanja and not the fans, they are free to support a candidate of their choice.
"The problems I have are more than the 400 million the President gave to artists, I'm paying mortgages...I also have a right to do what I want, I know Besigye, I know Amama but my man is Museveni."
"When Kiprotich wins a medal, does he hide it under the bed, so when I show my love for the President, what's wrong with that?"
The show host, Douglas Lwanga, asked Chameleone why they left out pertinent issues like the copyright, Chameleone said that a number of things were discussed but then again, this being the first time they were meeting the President, they could not talk about everything in that short while.
"We are representable...we could not start telling him that my wife left home, I have a toothache..and for Maurice Kirya not to attend the dinner, that was his choice, we all have choices."
"I'm a musician, so if you want your views to be addressed, use your members of parliament to do that," Chameleone added.
The star singer defended his decision by comparing it to his dad who did not want him to marry Daniella Atim because she was from Acholi; "He wanted me to marry from Buganda, I stood my ground and told my dad she is the one for me and that was my choice," Chameleone said.

"I am so respectful of your opinions. Do the same for me and everyone," Chameleone wrote while showing off his yellow one button suit, which is the latest addition to his wardrobe.
He has two one-button-suits in red and yellow, the yellow one has an NRM logo on the right hand side and the red one is what he used during the shooting of his latest track, Nakutunza, that he did with Tanzania's Barnaba Classic. It will be released on Oct 30.
"Let Everybody Be who they want to be. As much as I am a Musician by profession, That doesn't take away my rights as a Ugandan Citizen."
This is coming at the time after Coco Finger tinting his hair to yellow and Bebe Cool customizing his Hummer car with Tubonga Nawe stickers.. We are yet to see more of these as we get closer to the 2016 Presidential elections.
The Tubonga Nawe song continues to be a trending topic on all the media platforms ranging from TVs and FM radio stations, newspapers and on social media. Chameleone and Bebe Cool will this evening be on NTV the Beat to deliberate more on the Tubonga Nawe project.
On Wednesday, Bebe Cool was appearing on the same TV station and he said that during this time of elections, you are either sleeping or smiling, so they've chosen the latter.

Socialite Zari has been in South Africa for close to a month now where she went to check on her three sons, and oh yes, once in a while, she bumps into their father, Ivan Ssemwanga.
Ivan's half brother, King Lawrence, has started from where he stopped if you recall the DNA issue and now, he says Zari is after Ivan these days..
However, Zari is not about to let that affect her love life with lover, Diamond Platnumz. "You have the power to rule your own world, once you realise that, you will never let petty issues affect you."
Meanwhile, King Lawrence, has hooked up another Zungu babe.."She is far prettier, richer and younger than both Zari and Huddah Monroe."

Bebe Cool was yesterday appearing on NTV the Beat to throw more light on the Tubonga Naawe song and the Presidential dinner that has since become the talk-of-the town.
He said that since he was a child, he has been supporting President Museveni, and, it's not new for artistes to support the President citing Eddy Kenzo whose Stamina song was more or less the theme song in the last elections.
Bebe Cool went on to say that at this time of elections, you are either sleeping or smiling so him and five others (he did not mention) came up with the Tubonga Naawe project which was a way of linking the musicians to the ruling government like it is the case with other sectors, and to do this, they had to use music.
As musicians, we do travel a lot, so we know most parts of the country as opposed to those criticising the project but only know two places, Kampala and their ancestral homes.
Others on the show were; James Wasula of Uganda Performing Rights Society, Andrew Benon Kibuka aka Dube who is the President for the Federation of Performing Artists in Uganda, Joe Tabula and music critic Eddie Ssendi but trust Big Size, they literally did not say anything as he dominated the show.
Bebe Cool - "At this time of elections, you are either sleeping or smiling...."
The show host, Douglas Lwanga, told Bebe Cool that word out there had it that, they had been paid for this Tubonga project so ...."Who works for free," Bebe shot back.
"When you are hungry, where do you go? Do you go to the bedroom or the kitchen..I drive a 150 million car, the other day Kenzo bought a 500 million house, you should give the artists some respect.."
Before the show could end, Bebe Cool tackled "The Maurice Kirya" issue saying that the invitation was clear, It was an invitation for the Tubonga Naawe experience and not a copyright dinner but instead of coming for the dinner, he decided to put the invite under his armpit. He (Maurice Kirya) is not even registered under these associations enforcing the copyright law.
It was then that Eddy Sendi chipped using the local dialect just to drive the point home saying that the artistes and other players in the sector are to blame for the failure of the copyright law, because, they themselves go door to door vending their music on USB's which makes it very difficult for other parties to enforce the copyright law.

Ekitone singer, Desire Luzinda, was yesterday out on a lunch date with her hair stylist only identified as Zziwa at some hide out in Kololo. The two enjoyed each other's company...There was quite a lot of catching up to do..
As they waited for their order to come through, the Nina Omwami singer was busy making updates on her social networks and this was one of them;
"Oprah is a Hero but you do not have to be Oprah to be a Hero." She went on to describe who a hero is...
The fans were quick to jump to her past wondering if the leaked pics were the thorns, but she was not about to take in any of that, she told off some of them before resorting to her white rice and steak which she was sending down with apple juice.
Desire Luzinda is about to mark one year since her n ude pics were leaked on the internet by her then Nigerian lover, Franklin Emuobor.

Juliana Kanyomozi who is teamed up with Nigeria's Mr. Flavor in the ongoing Coke Studio episode has appealed to fans for votes.
"Hey fam. Please don't forget to vote for me and Mr. Flavour in our mash up. Only your votes will get it to the cokestudio album. All you have to do is post these two hashtags on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram - #Song3 #CokeStudioAfrica, Asante Saana."
It should be recalled that at the just concluded dinner at Speke Resort Munyonyo, Juliana shared a table with the President and First Lady, this rubbed some of her supporters the wrong way.
As a top female musician, her supporters subscribe to different camps ranging from; Go Forward, No Change, #TDA and the likes, so when she asked for the votes, some were quick to turn her request down.
Juliana's fans who do not support the ruling party feel 'offended' by the act. The good news is, not all the fans are turning her request down, a good number of them are actually voting and with other East African countries on board, the Woman singer and Mr. Flavor could still pull through.
One particular fan asked her when she is getting married? the singer promptly responded; Tomorrow, another added; Tomorrow never comes..
Bebe Cool and Chameleone are the other artists being 'roasted' by fans for their respective roles at the Presidential dinner.

New details have emerged on the bad blood between Maggie Kiweesi and the Mayanja family. As you may all be aware, It's slightly over 100 days when Maggie's lover, AK47, passed on but the babe is already in the arms of another man.
No offence after all, even the married couples do recite in their vows that till death do us part, but Maggie and AK47 were not married, they were lovers who had children in the process of cohabiting. Emmanuel Mayanja alias AK47 died on March 16, 2015 (Chameleone's Younger Brother, AK47, Dead).
In the pics above, Maggie is seen with her new lover, Isaac who seems to be in love with the baby twins that look exactly like their late dad, then in another pic, Isaac is feeding his bae. The two rock the beach together with Maggie clad in hot pants while Isaac rests his arm around her hip, they look happy together.
However, the timing as to when Maggie decides to move on and the introduction plans is what has left many baffled. Humphrey, one of the Mayanja's said that you are better off buying a car or hanging out with the boys than marrying a woman who does not think straight.
Those words came shortly after Maggie held an interview in which she told of how she had been thrown out of the house they had constructed for her and the kids.
Maggie and her new lover, Isaac Semanyi are so into each other, they live together as husband and wife in Mutundwe,they are in advanced stages of their introduction ceremony according to a source that leaked this info on their social networking portfolio.
Ivan bought for Maggie a plot of land in Kitende where construction will kick off any time soon. The search for the suspect in the AK47 murder case is still ongoing...

It's not the first time Bebe Cool is saying this and certainly won't be the last. On Wednesday, the 'Byebyo' singer reiterated his position on Eddy Kenzo branding him an upcoming artist even after winning the BET's viewer's choice, International category-Africa award.
Highlights of Bebe Cool's message:
MORE OF THIS STORY:
Eddy Kenzo is not the first Ugandan to be nominated in the BET awards, but he is the first Ugandan to win a BET award, and also the first African to win the BET Viewer's International choice award (Africa), because, that particular category was only introduced in the just concluded awards.
Kenzo still has to prove to a small section of fans who are bent on the fact that had it not been for the kids in the Sitya Loss video, it would not rank that high in YouTube views. In his message, the Byebyo singer, Bebe Cool, says he does not want to achieve any awards for mercy reasons, but it should be his music to stand for him.
"Today I want to urge Ugandans and East Africans as a whole that I don't want to achieve any awards for mercy reasons but my music to stand for me. As a musician, I have done my duty to do music that can get us into the MTV level of competition, and at this level, the rest depends on my country to achieve that award."
If you feel am good and I deserve this Award, if you feel you care about your country winning this award, if you feel East Africa deserves this award, if you feel you love Bebe Cool, Keep voting for 'Love you Everyday' in the on going MTV Africa Music awards 2015, Video of the Year category here: mama.mtv.com/voting..
He then went on to launch his latest 'Byebyo' video.

Pius Mayanja aka Pallaso has quit Jeff Kiwa’s Team No Sleep forming his own crew dubbed Team Good Music. Unconfirmed sources also indicate Sheebah has equally quit.
This announcement was made a week back when he posted a pic of himself and late brother, AK47 captioned as;
“Today marks exactly the first day that I'm officially out of Team No Sleep!! It is a very painful decision but I have finally decided to move on.. The reasons are so painful but I will give them later when I feel more comfortable but now on My New camp is called "Team Good Music,”
"I will soon be telling you who my new manager is very shortly as well and all the artists I will be working with!!"
Interestingly, this is the very information Pallaso was refuting, saying he was still apart of the group, but this was widely expected now that Jeff Kiwa’s guard, Mumbere, is the prime SUSPECT in the AK47 murder case.
The new group also has something to do with AK47. He calls is Team Good Music/ Bullet Proof Soldiers.
Pallaso has been around for slightly over a year when he returned from the US, at the time, he was signed to the Goodlyfe Crew, then later Team No Sleep that was formed after Jeff Kiwa falling out with Moze Radio and Weasel.
Team No Sleep has been doing wonders courtesy of Pallaso and Sheebah combined but with the latest developments, fans are now pleading with Pallaso to move along with Sheebah, Go with Sheebah, not a request but a command, one fan wrote.
Meanwhile, under his Team Good Music label, he was already released his first song with the Onsanula queen, Spice Diana, and so far the fans who have listened to the track are already appreciating.

"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.

Updated: The body of Rosemary will arrive on Monday night and on Tuesday, (April 14) at
The doctors at Mulago Cancer Institute have done all they could, but Rosemary who was battling Adrenal Cancer and Diabetes could not make it. Rosemary's family confirmed the former NTV news anchor had passed away on Sunday, April 12.
Yesterday, friends and family including the President contributed towards her treatment and later that afternoon, she was flown to Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi, but unfortunately, she could not make it.
NTV news anchor, Josephine Karungi, has been so instrumental in this cause and this is what she had to say;
"Thank you for all your support. I believe she is smiling down on you and thinking what wonderful people you all are. I am sad she couldn't thank you herself.
She has rested. The fight against cancer doesn't end though. We continue doing what we can. All the contributions that came in after will go to the family to help them through this.
Blessings to you all and again...Thank you for standing with Rosemary."

Bebe Cool has released his latest track, Old School Wah Kinda or What Kind, which reminds you of the Kasepiki and Bogolako tunes. In the video, Bebe Cool is seen displaying rare dancing strokes at least away from the slow versions of Love You Everyday and Everywhere I go which are more of slow dancing and easy listening songs.
The Wah Kinda song was premiered on NTV the Beat on Wednesday but before that, there was a false rumour doing rounds that Bebe Cool was involved in a car accident along Matugga road but he refuted those claims as he announced the video premiere details.
"Am fine, not been in any accident. Just home with ma baby mama. Love you all and don't you take what losers are saying about me, I will hit them hard with more hits and for that reason, tomorrow (April 8), let me release a brand new video called Old Skul (Wah Kinda) produced by Ogopa DJ .."
Love You Everyday was done by Clarence Peters, Godfather Productions produced Everywhere I go and now, Ogopa DJs have done Wah Kinda.

Fans have this morning congratulated Zari and Diamond Platnumz on getting married.
However, Ivan Ssemwanga's half brother, King Lawrence thinks otherwise, in his own words he says; This is Diamond's biggest mistake.
Could Lawrence be saying this because after twelve years even with a traditional wedding (Introduction) involved, it failed to work out between Zari and Ivan, could it be the short period Zari and Platnumz have dated and a baby is on the way and within no time, they are putting a ring on it, only time will tell.
For now though, Zari and Platnumz continue reading through the many comments from well wishers, fans and friends that have been pouring in since yesterday when Platnumz first broke the news.

Away from the shoe theft allegations, Bobi Wine yesterday contributed shs 2,000,000/- (Two million shillings only) to the Ettoffalli drive. His camp shared a Buganda Twezimbe Masengere receipt no: 218415 to confirm the transaction.
A few days back, a Sheikh Muzaata clip belittling the Etoffalli drive went viral prompting Bobi Wine to attack the Sheikh saying that he was so disappointed in him for not respecting the Buganda Premier, in fact, he gave him a deadline to apologise, which was last Monday, but Muzaata is not about to bow down.
Just last week, Bobi Wine was invited to The Beat show on NTV by Douglas Lwanga to throw some light on what his next move was now that the Sheikh had not apologized, but as he left the show, he was intercepted by some journalist outside Serena hotel for a short interview, unfortunately, the shoe he was putting on at the time overshadowed what he talked about in the interview.
It still had a security tag on it. And now, Bebe Cool is riding on that branding him a thief for putting on a shoe with a security tag unless of course, the shop where the shoe was bought did not have a security tag detacher, but how could that be now that the security tag was put anyway!
The Bobi Wine camp has tactfully ignored that particular bit and responded with the various Ettoffali contributions made by Bobi Wine personally and as the Fire Base Crew CEO when the Buganda Premier visited areas pertinent to him, in total Bobi Wine has contributed Shs 20m/- as listed below:
"So how much does that sneaker cost? Bebe Cool had better come up with something else, otherwise byayanga," one Fire Base Crew fan noted.

Fan Family, Nsiima nnyo."

Businessman, Jack Pemba, popular in Tanzania for his love of 'pouring money' when he likes an artist has relocated to Uganda.
He has branded the so called Rich Gang pawns in the game of money. He recently turned 42 and his birthday bash was held at Speke Resort Munyonyo. Fusion band entertained guests at the exclusive party.
Desire Luzinda also performed showing off her already known curves in a thigh high split slit outfit doing the Ekitone song which left the birthday boy nodding in approval.
It's not surprising that on Valentine's day, the two were together as Desire performed in Gulu. "When the storm is over that is when you realise God was washing away the filth in your life, " Desire tweeted.
Yesterday, some two babes were spotted cruising towards Entebbe in a navy blue ML CDI 270 with 'J Pemba' customized plates.
A quick search on Pemba returned with a 2010 article in Swahili stating that; "He had been arrested for allegedly getting over 344 million TZ shillings through fraud from Exim Bank of England..."

Bobi Wine's fans and Bebe's through their Firebase and Gagamel crews are having serious exchanges on social media platforms, because, Bebe Cool was not able to attend the funeral of Bobi Wine's father in person due to schedule conflicts.
For the record, Bebe Cool wrote a condolence message using his facebook profile, but the Fire Base Crew members felt that was not enough citing a case of Iryn Namubiru who was forced to cancel all her scheduled shows just to be their for Juliana much as they had separated years back.
Bobi Wine's fans expected a lot more than just a facebook post Bebe Cool made. On the day Bobi Wine's father was buried, Bebe Cool was at a graduation party for the Gagamel fans, he later crowned the night with a performance at Club Amnesia.
They went on to demand for an apology from Bebe Cool who has since declined saying that; "Initially, I was going to attend but when they changed that the body be taken to Bobi Wine's home, I was not sure of my security. Anything could have happened to me or my car. Guys from that camp like making news, so I decided to avoid the whole process."
"Besides, they did not read my condolence message, why should I apologise what crime have I committed, and then, did he apologise for calling my dad a Katala," Bebe Cool added.
We are on good terms with Bobi Wine's brothers, Eddie Yawe and Fred Nyanzi, so either way, I was touched. I also took the announcements on radio because I hold Mzee Sentamu in high esteem.
Bobi Wine and others are currently embroiled in wealth sharing discussions.

With just a day to Valentine's day, Juliana has said she hates chocolates, so if you are one of those who were thinking of sending her presents that could blow her mind off, chocolates should not be one of them.
The Woman singer was this morning appearing on NTV Mwasuze Mutya program by news anchor and host, Faridah Nakazibwe, they talked about a number issues ranging from her music, personal lifestyle, and life after losing her only son and most importantly how she has been able to cope.
Ugandan music has improved lately and it's crossing all over the world. The Oriflame Ambassador recalled of an email she received from Bahamas by someone who wanted to write about the Woman song. My first concert in 2005 was more of a show case than making money, right now, we have endorsements and concert bookings as ways in which musicians can make money.
Asked about what she does to have such an attractive voice, the diva said that she does vocal training but also added that she has been singing since she was 6. I'm a lightweight when it comes to drinking, two glasses of wine will be the limit. Oh I hate chocolates and only take plenty of water before a performance.
The show host also asked about the female artistes who she regards as good, Juliana talked of Irene Ntale, Rema (has a big voice) before generalizing that they are many out there.
Juliana also touched briefly about social media which she said that it has given them a voice but it has also been abused, she crowned off the show with the Woman a cappella, which clearly brought out the vocal ability in her.

Comedian Patrick Salvador yesterday shared a pic of his past in the "throwback" game hashtagged as #TBT. In the pic, Salvador was working as a shop attendant at Shell Kireka...
In the background, you could not miss seeing the various types of condoms that were on display, multi-coloured envelopes which were ideal then for letter writing but now, their demand has drastically dropped due to the new mediums of communication like emails and short message services.

The last king of Ombokolo, Patrick Idringi, aka Salvador had landed a movie role in the Hollywood circles and was acting as Father Moses, but just after two days, he has fallen out with the production crew saying that he can't work with a producer who is disrespectful.
"I lowered my Standards all in the name of experiencing the thrill of working with a Hollywood director who was really on point and knew what he was doing on this "low budget movie" but getting disrespected by the producer was just ridiculous... I've really worked so hard for my name to be taken for granted."
"Didn't ask for much but just mutual respect and understanding. Anyway, new opportunities will come my way I know for sure but for now... Let me say I'm sticking to comedy and my beloved Beneath The Lies."
A week back, Salvador was interviewed by a team from CNN for their Passion to Portfolio version that features individuals who have found as much success with their hobbies as they have for their careers.
Salvador is an Engineer by profession and was working with telecom giant, MTN, but resigned his job to concentrate on comedy.

A week back, social networks were awash with information of Bobi Wine's DNA results that revealed that his UK based son was not his biological child.
Bobi came out to say that much as he was not disputing anything, that was not the way he presents his issues. However, he has now come out to clear the space and confirms that, it's true, the DNA test was done and the findings were not any different from what you already know.
"Yes, I took the child for a DNA test, and yes the DNA results proved beyond reasonable doubt that I'm not his biological father, and yes, I called his mother and he did not deny anything. She came clean, told me everything and she apologized to me, and that is the end of the story."
"As for 'my son' Simon, me and him know that we have been father and son for all his life now and we shall forever be father and son. A strong bond was created between us and not even DNA can challenge my relationship with him. He loves me and I love him very much. I had to put up with a lot to be his father and I can still put up with more to stay close to my little soldier."
"I will continue to take full responsibility of him, but him alone and being the father figure that he has always known. He is my child, all his brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles, every body loves him, nothing will change."
"I will only request Safina to apologise to all parties involved for telling a lie and maintaining for so long that it caused so much pain, embarrassment and confusion. After that, let's wish each other a happy year."
Barbie is still tight-lipped on the matter while Safina has now deleted her facebook profile.

Radio Consultant, Joel Isabirye is back, this time with a beautiful and photogenic Lillian Mukasa who is widely believed to have replaced Rebecca Jjingo.
It should be recalled that towards the end of last year, Joel fell out badly with Rebecca just when they were about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.
His right hand man, Isaac Katende aka Kasuku is the happiest and has since been telling close pals to be ready for the introduction ceremony while sharing hot shots of Lillian on his wall.
Joel has maintained that she is an employee of one his companies who performed so well last year and only wishes she could perform better this year.
Last week, Lillian made a post that left a lot to be desired; "To me getting married twice, even thrice doesn't mean something is wrong with you, it just means you are picking the wrong people to marry, lol."
The above statement linked to Joel's ex lovers leaves nothing to the imagination. About seven years ago, Isabirye wedded Grace Naisamura but crashed in 2009, Sharon Nagadya followed, she also introduced him to her parents, they split in 2011 then came Rita Kaggwa and Rebecca Jjingo.
It takes a really good person to say such words that Lillian used up there..

Simon Kyagulanyi is not my son.... Say's Bobi Wine.
"This is my whole story and I have evidence on everything. 7 years ago I met a one gal in London called Safina. By then I was not married and I made a mistake of my life. It was once and the next week this gal claimed that she was pregnant. Ng'omusajja omuganda I was happy to have a new member of the family. I have been taking responsibilities as a father and no one was complaining."
"This Christmas season, I invited Simon as my son to spend the festival with his fellow brothers and sisters. As soon as the boy landed in UG from UK, I said no, I have to do it this time, so I secretly without any other persons knowledge took him for a DNA test coz for so long I have been suspecting this."
"Ashburg to my surprise or let me call it shock relief, the results are back and guess what? SIMON KYAGULANYI is not my son. Not even Barbie or Saphina knows this. I have decided to make u a star by giving u this info first and any question about this u will be the first to get the answer."
Proof of DNA test results and other concrete evidence will be out. I'm so sorry for my boy Simon but your mum is responsible. I'm sorry Barbie that you had to go through such pain, I'm sorry my family and fans. Shadrak, Shalom & Solomon are my only 3 biological kids as of 20th/01/2015."
That was a post made by Bobi Wine's right hand man, Kato, but after a few minutes, Bobi Wine made this post;
"It has never been my style putting my personal/family matters in the media and it's not going to start now, those (above) are words of Ashburg Kato AND NOT MY WORDS! I believe NOT EVERYTHING IS FOR MEDIA ATTENTION, especially where there are young innocent souls involved."
AGAIN, Bobi made this post, not denying what Kato had written and also not blaming what Kato had written either.
"Am not dashing fire at Kato, all am saying is, that is not my press release, it might have some facts in it but that's not how I present my self and my issues, some issues are actually not worth presenting."

This is what King Lawrence posted a few minutes back regarding Zari's pregnancy. "The smile you put on when you find out that your ex is pregnant at 41." Interestingly, in all these developments, Ivan has been tight-lipped while King Lawrence does the talking.
A few days back, he appealed to Diamond Platnumz to give Zari a break so she can attend to her children, he even offered $40,000 to Platnumz if he honoured his request, moments later, Zari shared pics of her and the 3 soldiers 'chillaxing'.
Using her wall, Zari issued a statement saying that it's not true she had dumped the kids to have fun with Platnumz, it was Ivan's turn to take care of the boys.
This morning, news of Zari's ultra-scan details confirming that she is pregnant have been making rounds on social networks and Diamond can't wait to lay his hands on what he is terming as Chibubu Junior...
In a related development, Ivan, King Lawrence and ex-con Meddie Ssentongo were this morning signing a deal of sorts confirming that they will be having some dealings together, details of which could not readily be established.

King Lawrence and Zari together? That's right! It's shocking bearing in mind that these two were having a serious exchange on facebook a few days back. Going by the above pic, it looks like Zari and King Lawrence are already back on good terms or it won't be long before they mend ties.
Zari and King Lawrence met today at the Rich Gang welcome party that was held at Fountain Valley Gardens in Pretoria. It was a picnic party sponsored by King Lawrence, Cheune and Zari's on-and-off hubby, Ivan Semwanga.
Days back, King leaked a whatsapp chat in which Zari was asking for big money and as it turned out, King gave her $5000 and on top of that hit it. Zari tried to label him as a driver to their college, but this just made matters worse, this was when he retaliated with these words; "Why did you give it to a faggot?"
During the fight, King revealed how he slept with Zari, the mother of Ivan's three soldiers.
Kenyan socialite, Huddah Monroe, was also dragged in the fight

Jose Chameleone, otherwise referred to as Milliano has shocked his fans in an 18-sec-video in which he cuts his left index finger and as if that is not cruel enough, he sucks the blood.

King Lawrence VS. ZARI
Rich Gang crew member, King Lawrence, has shot back after Zari revealed that he was just a mere driver at their school who could even be fired.
King Lawrence had earlier accused Zari for not being there for her children and was all over Africa with Tanzania's finest, Diamond Platnumz.
Using his wall, King revealed that the Nataka Kulewa singer needs to know that he has hit the boss lady before, but also offered Diamond Platnumz $40,000 to leave Zari alone so that she can take care of her three sons.
Dating Zari should be one complicated aspect her lovers have had to deal with and as it turns out, King Lawrence , has also had a thing with Zari as he reveals in the above screen shots.
In one of them, Zari (who adds your in-law) is asking for real big money and not pocket change from King who she claimed in an earlier post was a mere driver. King follows it with a question; "Madam why did you supply your desert* to a faggot? Wonder if that boy knows that I hit it first."
Zari down played all this by saying they were hating on her because she is happy.
"Ma dude (Platnumz) needs a b***h too, that gay-eish thing of yours is not on point. Baby daddy (Ivan) failed to "wife" you all this time you've been fighting his battles, you think Diamond Platnumz will? So it's true, when they see you happy, they start hating more huh?"
Zari has this morning left for South Africa while Diamond Platnumz is in Nigeria.

Zari and Ivan's cousin, King Lawrence, are at it again.
"Chilling with Zari's son because his mom is D!ck Hopping all over Africa. It's the son's birthday, " King Lawrence wrote this afternoon. Hours later, ZARI revealed that King was recruited as a driver at their college in South Africa and at this rate, he risks being fired.
"If all drivers posted their boss' kids when asked to execute duties of dropping their boss' kids to some place, then the world would be some thing else.
Glad to have you on our Brooklyn City College pay roll as our part timer driver when you run broke, just don't abuse your work ethic code of conduct as an employee by posting my kids seeking attention from it.
Your job is to drop them when asked to do so as a driver. PERIOD!"
They first fought in 2013 when Zari split with Ivan over Sharon O, King photoshopped a 'Sharon O' number plate with claims that Ivan had bought Sharon O a Range Rover Sport. This did not go down well with Zari and her gals who decided to hunt down Sharon O, but she was arrested before laying her hands on Sharon O.
Zari's young brother, Karim (who accused Zari of dating Platnumz who is 9 years younger than her) tried getting bail for his sister but King LAWRENCE said; "Why even bother to get her out, leave her there, that's where she belongs."
Ivan has not had a smooth run from the time he was nabbed with ex BBA Housemate. It was then that Zari embarked on an open dating spree that saw her moving out with Isaac Lugudde aka LK4, Farouk Sempala and now Tanzania's finest Diamond Platnumz.
Blood is thicker than water, King Lawrence has stayed by Ivan's side at all times and will once in a while try to hit at Zari like it was today, but Zari is not about to take any of that BS!, She will hit back.
Tuesday, January 06 2015
Diamond Platnumz' ex lover, Wema Sepetu, has said she has no problem with Diamond dating Zari.
"It didn't work out between us and I wish him all the best in his new relationship. They look good together," Wema said during a radio interview in Dar-es-Salaam.
Wema and Diamond had dated for over three years only to break up a couple of months back. Last September, the Bongo star bought Wema a brand new BMW as a birthday gift.
In the just concluded AFRIMA awards, Diamond Platnumz and Vanessa Mdee won the Best Male and Female Artistes in East Africa respectively, but Wema only congratulated Vanessa.
In her new year's message, she reveals that the year 2014 was quite an experience for her.
"Happy New Year my beautiful people, 2014 was quite an experience, went through a lot of things, had my ups and downs. I know I have learnt and for sure can't make the same mistakes I made earlier. God I pray for 2015 to be my year and I'm gonna make it my walk to remember."
Zari is right now in Kampala and will be heading to South Africa tomorrow while her boo, Diamond Platnumz is in Lagos for a performance at the GLO-CAF awards.
Zari has found the love of her life in Diamond Platnumz at least from her latest post; "No man on earth is perfect but when he shows effort in keeping you happy, acknowledge that."
Monday, January 05 2015
They've been an item since November last year, and now, they are so close to the point that Zari has kept the Bongo flava star on a tight leash.
Any hot female that dared to get close to Diamond Platnumz would have it rough with the bouncers who were guarding the couple while on tour in Rwanda and Burundi.
"That look you pull when he smiles at someone you don't like. Smh!!....Good nyt and happy new week fam..... the hustle continues," Zari noted on her wall.
At this rate, Diamond Platnumz might have to get permission to do certain things like writing autographs, smiling to 'some fans' if Zari's latest post is anything to go by.
But with Platnumz increasing fame, Zari had better fasten her seat belt for this adventure.

Desire Luzinda of the Ekitone fame took to facebook this morning to share shots of her new hairstyle. She also added these words: "Happy Sunday lovely people! I know God will scatter and confuse the speech of my/your enemies."
While some welcomed the message, others were quick to bring in the past.
One Babbyson asked which talent she had other than showing off what her mama gave her, Steve shot back to Babbyson wondering if he had any talent before passing judgement. Using her verified account, Desire thanked Steve for a response she deemed appropriate.
Desire has been busy the whole of December. She literally performed at all events, moving around the city, you could not fail to see her name on the banners that were displayed.
Following her photo scandal, she has released two songs, Ekitone written by Moze Radio and Ebyama written by Pr. Wilson Bugembe. In the Ebyama video, a guy who in this case is her ex-lover, Franklin, is seen taking shots of her b()()ty but also quick to let him know that the shots he is taking are for his eyes only.

It's now official, Eddie Kenzo and Rema Namakula will be married pretty soon as the Sitya Loss singer has initiated plans for the nuptials.
Eddy Kenzo was in Equatorial Guinea for the new year's eve, and given the timing, it's been a busy time for him that he did not have enough time to spend with baby Aamal Musuuza, who was born on Boxing day.
For the last nine months, Kenzo has been tight lipped on the father issue leading to soem to suspect Kadonga Kamu star, Mathias Walukagga, but with the pre-introduction ceremony being strunk off their to-do-list, you can't afford to talk of Walukagga.
It's the third couple trying to work things out their style after Moze Radio and Lillian Mbabazi, and now, Fille Clear Muthoni and celebrated city MCKats who also part times as a musician.

Sheraton Hotel Kampala was the place to be on the new year's eve. Bebe Cool, Jose Chameleone, Sheebah, Pallaso, David Lutalo and Iryn Namubiru among others performed.
Bebe Cool was on his knees kissing his adoring wife and it was not long before his hand could drop all in the name of ushering in the news year. Bebe Cool will do anything to show love to his wife. In 2011 while in the UK, he was seen bitting at Zuena's behind.
Desire Luzinda as usual had two mean bouncers who ensured that the Ekitone singer was safe and sound.
Friday, January 02 2015
Zari has dated many ranging from basket ball star, LK4, muscle man Farouk Sempala and of course the father of her three children, Ivan Ssemwanga, but none of them has given her the life she has been yearning for. Ivan was close to getting her that life when she cruised the first Lamborghini in Kampala.
However, the Diamond Platnumz experience has been the epitome of Zari's relationships. She is now known in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and of course, she needs no introduction in Uganda.
On hooking up with the Bongo Flavour star, Zari told his followers to get ready for the "Uganda, Tanzania project" and so far, the project has been unveiled in bits and pieces..
The project kicked off with a music video that was recorded in Tanzania (we're still waiting for the video), then Zari was in South Africa with Platnumz for the Channel O Awards. One of Zari's ex-lovers tried to sabotage the relationship by leaking a s#x tape on the net, but this did not stop her.
Next, it was the All White Party which to the surprise of many was a sell out to the extent that the doors to Guvnor were closed to the public.
The couple was recently in Burundi with Zari right by Diamond's side at all times only to crown off their journey in Rwanda where they ushered in the new year with a performance at The Expo Ground on 31.Dec and another on 01.Jan at the Amahoro Grounds.
While in Rwanda, they visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial where they explained to them the history of Rwanda and the genocide of Tutsi's in 1994. Zari could not help crying after watching a short video of the Tutsi massacre.
This was Zari before Diamond Platnumz came into the picture.

It's been an amazing year for Rema and Eddy Kenzo.The Deep in love singer and her better half welcomed their first child, a daughter named Aamaal Musuuza on December 26, Kenzo announced on his facebook page.
Kenzo has been busy with several performances in the festive season and right now, he is in Equatorial Guinea, for a performance slated for tomorrow. The Be Happy singer has been in the Central African country since Dec 29, implying that, he has not spent enough time with his, now, second daughter.
In the Nice and Lovely song, Kenzo says that; "Olina Dimples Super" and it's on record, no one beats Rema when it comes to dimples, so that was a song he dedicated to her on conceiving...she did not disappoint, she retaliated with Muchuzi which you can as well relate to Musuuza, Kenzo's last name.
The Sitya Loss star had a message for the new year to his fans.
"On behalf of the entire Big Talent family, I wish you all a great prosperous new year. I thank the almighty lord for the new gift of a pretty baby Aamaal and my Sitya Loss song for making it to number 1 in the year 2014 and Number 3 in Africa by African Music Magazine, Happy New Year."
Meanwhile, yesterday as Bukedde TV was counting down the TOP 50 songs of the year 2014 voted by the viewers, Eddy Kenzo's Sitya Loss was number one followed by Bebe Cool's Love You Everyday.

Diamond was having performances in Burundi with Zari by his side to ensure all was well. On Dec 18, 2014, Diamond Platnumz was the headlining act at Zari's All White Party which was a sell out, since then, the two have not looked back.
Fans across East Africa are busy telling Diamond Platnumz to go back to his lover, Wema Sepetu, as opposed to dating Zari who is nine years older and a mom-of-three, but the Number One singer is terming that as nonsense !!!
Meanwhile, looking at Zari's past lovers, she has always been the one dumping and when the time for the Bongo flavour star is up, she will dump the young man. However, one thing is for sure, Diamond is enjoying the cougar from all corners and for now patiently waiting to usher in the new year Zari style.

Rema and Kenzo are the proud parents to baby Aamaal who was born on Boxing day. The Sitya Loss singer who has for long been tight lipped on the matter shared the good news on his wall.
"Mukama wamanyi boxing day YAZE ne musuuza omupya alihamidulirah maya afunye sister. Era kanebaze omulungi wange abadde very strong ebanga lyona. Ate wanjawulo according to her status ne myakaje abantu abamuvodde yandibade yabadamu nga ayomba naye yasirika. olugero lwa kasiru takusiruwaza alumanyi. bogedde ebisongovu bafune attention tezemu nomu Allah akuwe kyosinga okwagala mukwano. kale twanirize baby Aamaal munsi enungi Nga mukama yemukulembeze. Amen"
Translated as: "The lord is great, Boxing day was welcomed with a new Musuuza, Maya now has a sister. I thank Rema who has been strong all this while. I'm proud of her given her age, a lot has been said but she did not say a word in retaliation. May Allah grant you whatever you wish for my dear. May we now welcome baby Aamaal in the world full of blessings from the lord, Amen."
This is Kenzo's second child and Rema's first. Kenzo has a daughter from his first relationship.

Bebe Cool has always had issues with Bobi Wine and Chameleone but the year 2014 has seen a few things change. During the KCCA Carnival, Bebe Cool performed a Bobi Wine song only to reveal in some interview that he was paid $10,000 just to do that.
On Boxing Day, it was the annual Bebe Cool's Tondeka Ekiwatule show which was well attended just like other shows in the season, but the highlight of the event was when Chameleone came on stage to perform some of his hit songs.
Moments later, the music was stopped as the two stars, Bebe and Chameleone hugged and cracked jokes leaving fans screaming wild. Bebe Cool hinted on a music battle with Jose Chameleone whom he says he helped to start up his music career but now boasts of being the number one in the country.
This is not surprising bearing in mind that last week, while appearing on a local TV station, Bebe Cool made it clear that this year has been very bad for Bobi Wine. "Chameleone has Wale Wale to compete with Love You Everyday but what hit song has Bobi Wine got this year?," Bebe asked.
In the same interview, Bebe Cool recalled of how he was thumped by Chameleone at Club Rouge a few years back.
Short of that, the show went on very well and was largely peaceful. Artistes like Maro, Hindu Asha, David Lutalo, Keko and Big Eye among others performed.

The maiden edition of All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) was held yesterday at Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island in Lagos Nigeria. It was hosted by 2Face Idibia and our very own Moze Radio and Weasel were among the winners taking home the award of Ragga/Reggae/Dancehall Music of the Year.
The Don't Cry singers who performed at the award event yesterday were quick to share the good news with their followers on social networks. Eddy Kenzo took off time from Rema who welcomed a baby girl last Friday to congratulate the dynamic duo on winning the award.
On Boxing Day, Moze Radio wrote that; "It;s been a great year, Thanks for being part of it." Great year indeed because, in spite of the problems they had with their previous manager, they have managed to do what they do best. Their very latest collabo Don't Cry Ft WizKid is doing well on channels across Africa.
On Jan 3, 2015 Moze Radio and Weasel will be performing live in London UK.

Christmas is a time for giving and receiving and that is exactly what ex-con Meddie Ssentongo did. On Wednesday, Bad Black who is still serving her sentence at Luzira prison was in court for the case in which Greenhalgh is trying to have Meddie's properties attached. The conviction for this case has now been set for April 2, 2014.
Shortly after court had adjourned, Meddie rushed to town and bought X-mas goodies for his former beau, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black who came dressed in black pants and a stripped top.
Bad Black could not hide her excitement on receiving the x-mas gifts and toiletries worth shs 2m/- For the record, Greenhalgh and Meddie were both Bad Black lovers but she was not in a dilemma like Cindy, she was able to handle both of them.
However, after embezzling his Shs 11B/- Greenhalgh was able to get them arrested. Meddie was sentenced to 18months and Bad Black 4 years.

It was full house at the Rich Gang party last night at Liquid Silk in Bugolobi. Just like Zari and Diamond, the Rich Gang (Ivan, his cousin, King Lawrence, Meddie and Cheune) were chauffeured to the venue in a limousine.
WBS and NTV were among the TV stations covering the party that saw the Rich Gang dish out money. As expected, many were trying to get close to the crew to have some of the pocket change. Highlights of the party can be watched on TV programs like NTV Login by Robin Kisti.
At around midnight, Ivan declared the bar open and all tribes of booze were flowing endlessly. The Ugandan boss lady, Zari was invited but she was a no show and so was the headlining guest, Huddah Monroe, she was no where to be seen.
Meddie Ssentongo was part of the Rich Gang crew after replacing Katsha who failed to measure up financially. Katsha was spotted at Club Amnesia hanging out with Bebe Cool.
The Ekitone singer, Desire Luzinda was one of the artistes who performed but with her, Ivan was forced to change the currency to dollars. Other notables at the party included; Ragga Dee, Moze Radio, Eddy Kenzo and Jose Chameleone among others.
"The party was most ___ up party, thing was too full, fights everywhere, like Kalerwe material, I expected some class or better still, they should have put a limit on the number of people because the turn up was high, to me, this was the worst party ever," one who attended the party wrote.

"Merry Xmas, I wish u a happy New Year. Avoid drinking n driving, so we can all make it for 2015 and 4 that reason I will be releasing my video on the 1st of Jan for my second single "EVERYWHERE I GO", off the go Mama Album."
In the just released pics of the Everywhere I go video, Zuena is seen watching Bebe's lips in amusement as he kisses the Zulu vixen in the latest video. Bebe Cool and Zuena were bashed for going to that extent, but Zuena came out to say that she was okay with the whole arrangement. She also added that this was not the first time her hubby was kissing vixens.

The year 2014 is coming to the end and the battle for 2015 is already taking centre stage..Just the other day, Bebe Cool was in South Africa recording his 'Everywhere I go' song off his Go Mama 2015 Album and now, Juliana, seems to be all set for the new year.
"On Set earlier today (Dec 19). Video Shoot for my new single 'WOMAN'. Thank you God for giving me the strength to get back to what I love to do, Music. Look out for it, " Juliana noted on her wall.
The diva is aware that this year has been dominated by Fille, Irene Ntale and Sheebah Karungi when it comes to top female artistes, but like she has stated above; "Thank you God for giving me the strength to get back to what I love to do..."the coming year is proving to be even better with professionally done videos.
The Woman video by Juliana has background similar to that of Bebe Cool's Love You Everyday at least from the pics released.
In a related development, South African based businessman, King Lawrence (KL), is in town. Last year around this time, King and Juliana were inseparable but a few weeks back, KL was spotted down South with Kenyan socialite, Huddah Monroe. She will be in Kampala for the Rich Gang Party that takes place on Dec. 23, 2014 at Liquid Silk in Bugolobi.

First, it was a One-Million-Show and for those who tried to complain, he told them that he had plans for a shs1,000 show, but this particular one was for those who could afford.
As it turned out or as expected, not many of the 1M/- tickets were sold forcing him to introduce a new pricing package that saw the tickets drop to 500,000 and 200,000.
His reason for the price reduction was that he wanted many people to be part of the show.
Security was tight at the venue and this was expected anyway now that the First Lady was the Chief Guest. The show was dedicated to improving communities in Karamoja, in fact some elders from Karamoja attended dressed in their regalia. Chameleone was backed up by Papa Cidy.
Chameleone's show was a class apart compared to other shows that were held on the same day. By virtue of the chief guest and the price, numbers were directly or indirectly affected. It's not clear how much was contributed from the First Lady office but the show was successful in it's own way. It was in a class of it's own. It's the first time the First Lady is attending a secular event.
The lighting, sound and the stage were top notch courtesy of Silk Events. Chameleone was able to attend the other two main parties, (White Party and Arab Money) that were being held elsewhere on the same day.
Bobi Wine, Barbie and Price Wasajja were some of the guests that attended the One-Man-show.

Cindy was last night performing in Rwanda but the fans first thought they had been fleeced. The Selector singer turned up in a white weave similar to that of a granny. Our money, Our money, some were heard shouting but when she started her open and close and dance moves, that is when the shouting went down as the dance moves were taking the best of them.
For the last few days, Cindy has adopted this as her hair style but even after several reminders that she needs to change her style, she has gone on strike. This is happening after breaking up with her lover who she had just introduced to her parents a few months back.
Wardrobe malfunction, U look pathetic with that hair.. short hair is the best for you, fire your hair designer and so on were some of the comments on her wall.Cindy was able to reach out to those who were having problems with her hairstyle and this is what she had to say: "You guys will be fine even me I sometimes hate myself for being HOT so I don't blame you."

Singer Phina Mugerwa aka Masanyalaze has been in tears for a greater part of this year after Cindy 'stole' her man. The Ayokyayokya singer was quoted on several TV and radio stations saying that a man can never be stolen. Cindy added that she and Ken were old enough to make informed decisions and so far she was happy and enjoying every moment of it.
However, the tables have turned, Phina is now back with Ken after the Ayokyayokya singer dumped him. Efforts of opening up a bar for Cindy to save the relationship did not help.
"Better to be alone and be happy than be with someone and be unhappy, " is Cindy's latest post on the relationship that has since gone sour.
Earlier on she wrote; "Have u ever woken up one day and realised that EVERYTHING u thought u knew about someone so close to u is in fact a LIE? How do u move on from that? I'm in a dilemma to tell u the truth."
On discovering that Ken was broke, Cindy had to show him the exit. Phina who cannot hide her excitement captioned a pic of Ken and Sandton that relationships with a child involved are bound to succeed. It should be noted that Cindy and her ex, Mario Brunetti, have a child together but their relationship of ten years is no more.
Phina wrapped up her post by wishing her fans a merry x-mas and blessings too.

Part time singer and socialite, Zari Hassan, is all smiles after having a sold out White Party yesterday. At some point, the doors to the posh night spot, Guvnor, had to be closed as it was fully packed. It's the first white party that has had guests locked out due to a sell out.
The couple (D&Zee) arrived at the venue in a white limousine. Among the notables missing from the party this year was Ivan Semwanga, Zari's on and off hubby. It should be noted that he has always been sponsoring this event but this time around, it was Ciroc and Guvnor who were the main sponsors.
Ivan jetted into the country on Wednesday night but that evening, Zari and Platnumz were hosted on NTV The Beat where she apologized to the Nation for the leaked s3x tape. The show host, Douglas, went on to ask her about Ivan and this was her response; "I'm not sure if he was coming or not but at this time of the year, he is always in the country."
Meanwhile, before coming on air at the NTV studios, D&Zee went to the washrooms just to ensure they were all glammed up for the cameraz but instead, it was kisses-n-hugs and a bit of swahili lines of 'Iko vzuri' while there. Yesterday, as the two left their hotel room, they all looked worked up, but Platnumz was on duty and had to deliver, not forgetting, this was his first time to perform in Uganda.
Jose Chameleone was able to join them after performing at his One Million Show that was held at Serena Hotel, the First Lady was the chief guest.

Kalanda Shamim Tendo is Franklin Emoubor's new lover after falling out with the Ekitone singer, Desire Luzinda. However, the curvy singer says that Shamim is being used to wage revenge as she sums it up in a post that was deleted shortly after.
"When your once close friend dates your ex hoping to get a range rover. Actions very laughable but my dear Shamim Kalanda Kayongo stick to your marriage, Franklin is only using you for revenge," Desire wrapped up the post with a title of one of her songs dubbed #Tebakulimba, which means don't be deceived.
One wrote: "Desire we are so sick and tired of your drama, please stop. First you are kidnapped, then yo child's father saga, then you post your nud#s in a bikini, then oga leaks yo nudes, ate money lenders are after you, then you launch Ekitone, and now Shamim..OGA I beg."
Shamim has since deactivated her facebook account while Franklin says Desire is just stupid and jealous. "Could this mean that Desire still has feelings for Franklin even after what he did, why can't she move on with her Ekitone," another wrote.

The venue for the video shoot has been kept a secret for crowd control purposes. ''Let's all learn to keep secrets, don't expose bedroom matters," she wrote on her wall.
In one of the shots, Desire is clad in a pair of African print shorts that show off her curves. Yesterday, Desire's ex lover, Franklin, showed off his new catch, Shamim Tendo who happens to have features similar to Desire, more of that here; Desire's Ex, Franklin, Hooks Another Babe
The main reason for Franklin leaking the pics was to destroy the Ekitone singer, but looks like the singer has instead become more famous.

Desire's Oga, Emikeme Emuobor Baguma is smiling again after hooking up a bummy and curvy babe.
"Have more faith in yourself, you got something that other people don't. I have a true friend," Franklin noted on his wall as he shared a pic of his new catch, Shamim Tendo.
Franklin fell out with Desire Luzinda last month after leaking her pics on the internet and social networks, but as it turned out, Desire is getting more gigs from the leak. She has also released two songs, Ekitone written by Moze Radio and Ebyama by Pastor Bugembe, they are doing rounds on TV's and radio stations.
Desire's facebook profile was verified in the process, featured on BBC, and has since been performing on several shows that include; Zzina Beach Fest, Club Venom Anniversary party, Abryanz Awards, Davido's concert at Freedom city, Jinja street jam to mention but a few.
Most x-mas and boxing day functions have her listed as one of the performers. The Ekitone singer has since beefed up her security, she travels with three mean looking bouncers.
Back to Emikeme's new catch, she is equally curvy and endowed and with her, Franklin has no regrets in Desire being his ex, though some people insist, no one beats Desire.

Nasibu Abdul Juma aka Diamond Platnumz will be in the country this afternoon for his girl friend's show, The Zari All White Ciroc Party, that will be taking place at Guvnor tomorrow.
"Kampala, Uganda, your boy is on his way for the Zari All White Party, " He wrote on his instagram profile this morning.
Entry fee is 30k and all guests must be clad in white outfits. It's on this day that Chameleone's One Million Charity show will be held and also the Arab Money party....The belly dancer for the Arab party is also already in town.
Meanwhile, a few hours back, the Tanzanian Bongo flavour star was spotted heading to the airport for his flight to Kampala. Trust him, he always moves with his mom. During the Channel O Awards, he was in the company of his mom and of course his boo, Zari, who helped him carry around the three awards that he won.
Over the weekend, he was in Mombasa for the Jamhuri concert but the police lead car that cleared his way was so fast that at some point, it was a problem to other motorists.
Zari jetted into the country on Monday after failing to do so earlier, of course for obvious reasons, the tape. The mom of three has ensured that a proper security detail is in place for her slighlty younger 'good friend' who will be the headline artist at the Zari White Party.
Last minute shopping for white outfits, Garden City based Zari Jewels could be your solution.

On Saturday, Abba Marcus MAYANJA going by the stage name T-Rex held his first concert for the kids at Freedom City, it was massively attended.
He has always been backed up by his dad, but not this time as Chameleone was having performances in Dubai. However, Abba was not all by himself as his young brother, Alfa, was there to back him up.
Just like the saying goes, 'The Apple falls next to the tree'. I want to thank all fans and friends who turned up at Freedom City Kampala to support My Star, Abba Marcus aka T-REX. And you ABBA and ALFA for the greatness you showed. We as Leone Island Family are extremely proud of you. Never let anyone frown you whatsoever," Chameleone wrote.
He wrapped up his post with this tagline: "Only Losers Give Up."
In September, T-Rex launched his first single, Game Over, so if he can pull a crowd that big, the sky is the limit. Chameleone will also be filling up Victoria Hall at Serena in four days time after reducing the ticket fees to 200,000/-

Ex-Sanyu FM's radio host, Seanice Kacungira, yesterday (Dec 12) introduced her Nigerian lover, Fabian Lojede, to her parents home in Kololo. Fabian is a Nigerian born Pan Africanist, Producer, Actor, Director and Voice Over Artist. He is the guy who acts as Bola Aboyemi in the drama series 'Jacob's Cross'.
She is officially off the shelves...one of her close pals appealed to all those who had Christmas presents for the Blu Flamingo CEO not to change their minds but to go ahead and pass them on to her.
This will certainly not go down well with Fatboy who had once wanted to assume that role. However, close friends to Seanice have been quick to advice her not to try out the Desire Luzinda stunts which led to her Nigerian lover, Franklin Emoubor Emikeme alias Baguma to leak her pics.
Seanice was pretty excited, she spent Friday afternoon retweeting congratulatory messages. "Thank you all for the sweet and sincere good wishes on my marriage. I really appreciate it friends. Love back atcha, " she tweeted.

Chameleone has been FORCED to slash ticket prices to more than a half. As expected the price of 1M/- attracted low ticket sales and low demand leaving the Wale Wale singer with no choice but to introduce new pricing packages, just like a chameleon that is known for changing it's colours.
Chameleone has now come up with Platinum, Gold and Silver packages. You can still pay the 1M/- if you so wish or settle for the next lower pack which is 0.5M or better still, the general happiness which goes for shs 200,000/-
Chameleone will be performing all his hit songs right from the days of Mama Mia to Wale Wale cum Milliano on Dec 18 at Kampala Serena Hotel.
The first lady of the Respublic of Uganda, Mrs Janet Museveni will grace the concert and part of the proceeds will go to the Karamoja communities where he shot his Wale-Wale video.

Uganda's second representative in the Big Brother Hotshots, Stella Nantumbwe jetted into the country yesterday. Her 'boyfriend', Idris Sultan, the only East African who was among the finalists emerged the winner taking with him US$300,000.
Apart from Namibia, the rest of the country votes that made Idris trounce Tayo Faniran were from East Africa as the other West African countries had their own housemates to vote for leaving Tayo with only two country votes, Nigeria and Mozambique.
Among the notables who were at the airport to receive Ellah was Lawrence Okoronkwo who was initially believed to be Uganda's representative in season 9, but as it turned out, he was responsible for Ellah's fashion while in the house. Others included Anita Fabiola (#NTVBeMyDate Host) and Freelance Pageant Coach, Joram Muzira.
The 2013-2014 beauty queen spent the whole of today at different radio and TV stations. She was at Radio City, Wavah FM and WBS TV station among others.
Meanwhile, when she was evicted, IK asked her if they would still be together with her boyfriend back at home after millions of viewers saw her on telly sharing intimate moments with Idris, Ellah said NO!

The KY socialite was putting up at Michael Angelo Hotel Sandton where they took some photos together. "Had a good laugh with a new friend today...I have friends everywhere apart from home, " Huddah spoke of King Lawrence.
As expected, not so kind words followed but trust the Big Brother season 8 star, she shot back; Honestly, I don't understand why women have to be the ones hating all the damn time . If you think my Veg is giving me the life I live then why don't u use your veg too to get a life instead of hating.."
Huddah and Denzel were last year evicted just after spending a week in the house, she cried uncontrollably..
Meanwhile, Huddah will be here for the Made of Money - Rich Gang Spenders Party that will be held at Silk Liquid on Dec 23, 2014.

#BringBackOurMbs is one of the hashtags trending on social media right now. Initially, we thought they were complaining about the recent network problems with Mobile Telecommunication Network (MTN) that forced the telecom giant to refund millions of lost airtime. Over 700M was refunded.
Analysing the problem further, the #BBOM hashtag was about Zari's leaked tape which they claim was a waste of their MBs. One radio personality who watched the clip had this to say:
"Okay seen the video. It's Zari, alright. They appear to be having Skype s€x, and the dude was filming what was showing on the computer screen on his end. She was using a vibrator. Dude was probably je.r.king off (though of course we couldn't see but it sounded like he was). In short... pathetic video.#Bringbackour11mbs"
Zari has issued a statement well written by a lawyer, but it's amazing how in the statement she constantly reminds her fans, friends and followers of the forthcoming White Party. It's not clear why it had to get to this because, the main parties taking place on that day (Dec 18) are different and by virtue of the entry fees, they are bound to attract different aundiences.
Chameleone's show is 1M/-, Zari's is 30K, so both parties will have revellers by default. The Arab Party in Bukoto has also brought in a belly dancer with a sword, again this also attracts a totally different following from Zari's All White Party, so if this was a deliberate move, it has fallen short of it's intended objective.
Friday, December 05 2014
Preparations for the Zari All White Party are in high gear and Zari's 'good friend', Diamond Platnumz, has also confirmed he will be in Kampala on December 18, 2014. He is the guest artist for the white party.
However, this morning, MTN aka Gonya Zirya Ki and other networks noticed some bit of traffic as one of Zari's yet-to-be identified ex-lover leaked her tape. The tape was doing rounds on social networks. It should be recalled that around this time last month, Desire's tape had been trending for a week..it took her two weeks to respond.
It has taken Zari just hours to respond and from her response, she is considering taking legal action against the perpetrators, detractors and publishers behind the tape.
"I would like to affirm that what goes on in my private life is absolutely my business that has no reason whatsoever to find it's way in the public realm. Privacy to/for/of a person is not a right granted by anyone, but it's inalienable..." Zari wrote on her wall.
Zari is now browsing her x-files to find out who this X could be.."I'm not bothered..life goes on. Exs gotta stay exs and stop doing things for revenge," Zari tweeted. Farouk, LK4 and Ivan Semwanga are some of Zari's lovers/ex-lovers and currentlly, she is close to Tanzania's Diamond Platnumz.
Friday, December 05 2014
It's now less than two weeks to Chameleone's 'One Man, One Million One Show' which will see all the guests in attendance part with UGX 1,000,000/- just to see the music doctor perform all his hit songs in the last 14 years.
"With a Million shillings, we can change the lives of more than a Million people in need," Chameleone notes on his wall. Part of the proceeds from the show will go towards helping communities in Karamoja.
The First Lady and Minister for Karamoja Affairs, Mrs. Janet Museveni will grace the show. "I would also like to inform you that she has accepted to be present at the concert which is in part intended to raise support for the improvement of people's lives in Karamoja," Reads in part the letter accepting Chameleone's invitation.
Interestingly, more events will be taking place on that day. At the Imperial Royale Hotel, Fun Factory will be cracking ribs at 50k while Tanzania's Diamond Platnumz will be at Guvnor for the Zari Ciroc All White Party proving why he was a force to reckon at the recently concluded Channel O Music Video Awards.
Still on that day, The Arab Money party will be held at Cayenne Lounge in Bukoto. The organisers say it will be a lavish unforgettable night bringing it's unique blend of glamour, style and elegance to the city.

Juliana now joins the facebook blue badge brigade after her official account was verified yesterday.
"Finally!!! Our Official Juliana page has been verified. Now family, you know what to do. If you have been following those FAKE impersonators. Ya'll need to unfollow now and come home where you belong . Much Love. Blessings," Juliana wrote.
This is just days after Desire Luzinda's account was verified. Others whose accounts are verified include Flavia Tumusiime, Angela Katatumba, Mariam Ndagire, Anne Kansiime, Maurice Kirya and President Museveni.
Desire and Juliana's fans have suffered untold losses from fake accounts. When Desire's pics leaked, some fake accounts were extorting money from unsuspecting individuals in the guise of raising funds for a court battle. The same thing happened to Juliana when she lost her only son, Keron, fake accounts had a field day collecting condolence fees plus other related costs.
With more accounts being verified, this will mitigate against such losses.
NTV Be My Date is one account in dire need of verification. Anita Fabiola, the show host has made it a point that she talks about the difference between the real page and the fake page, but surprisingly, the fake page has its followers increasing by the day.
Juliana is now calling onto the lost souls to quickly rush home or they keep following the wrong accounts at their own peril. The big boys, Chameleone, Bebe Cool are yet to be verified...!
Thursday, December 04 2014
As you may be aware, Bebe Cool has recorded his Everywhere I go video that will be released in 2015. Like it was the case for the Love You Everyday hit, this one too might premiere on foreign channels like MTV Base, Channel O and the likes before making it's way to Uganda.
There have been reactions on the ''may you kiss the bride" scene in the video that had Bebe Cool and a Zulu video vixen kiss, the same way newly weds would do it. How could Zuena stand that many seemed to say! The video concept is similar to that of Jaguar's One Centimetre.
"It's not the first time am watching him kiss a gal in a video shoot, it's called acting besides this is the life we chose to live. I wouldn't allow him to do so if I was uncomfortable with it. We are happy because it was a successful video shoot. Wait for it you'll see what am talking about. EVERY WHERE I GO."
Zuena has seen it all and she is yet to see more or worse off scenes because that is the life they live. For now, we will patiently wait for the video. In 2015, Bebe is tipped to do more everywhere I go, Love You Everyday type of songs as opposed to Kasepiki and Kus Kus songs.
Wednesday, December 03 2014
Bebe Cool has been in South Africa since Friday. He went with his better half, Zuena Kirema Ssali and while there, he performed for the Ugandan community in Pretoria, kicked off the Big Brother live eviction show with his Love you Everyday song among others.
On the side of his visit, Bebe took off time to shoot a video for his latest 'Everywhere I go' song. The highlight of the video was when he married off a Zulu video vixen, intimately kissed and touched while his wife Zuena was recording the proceedings on her smart phone.
Later, the Zulu vixen and Zuena went through the shots that were taken but you could clearly see she was not very impressed with the whole idea. It's said that there was a scuffle in their hotel room, something they've both dismissed.
The idea of Zuena recording the wedding scene and yet she is still waiting for their fancy wedding that is now likely to take place in 2015 had people react differently, some were of the view that Zuena needs to stay home just like Barbie and Daniella to take care of the little ones other than engaging in 'funny' roles.
Trust Bebe, he shot back responding to one blogger who appeared to be most affected but also justifying that he is free to go with his wife everywhere he goes, which resonates with the song title.
"Never be that ------ to compare my wife to those two, I hear they stay home as their men go to work, don't u see that the more the two women stay home the more their hubbies have more children out of wedlock. You need to move with your wife EVERY WHERE U GO. My wife did not get married to my house or the kitchen but ME. I and my wife we r Ok with it..."
The video was written by Apass and produced by Nessim at Bad Productions, shot by Godfather Production. It's off Bebe Cool's 2015 album Go Mama!

Stella Nantumbwe aka Ellah has been a strong player in the Big Brother Hotshots that ends this coming Sunday. Ellah has been up for eviction six times, a record no other hotshot was able to beat. However, with a week to go, Africa decided that Ellah should pack her bags for Kampala.
"Uganda, Thank you, I Love you all. I'm back! We fought a great fight, I am humbled by all of your support God bless you all, Team Ellah."
One of her followers was quick to ask her to rally behind Idris all in the spirit of East Africa, but the beauty queen simply told him that; ''I'm team Butterphly hun..."
Butterphly is one of the 8 finalists in the run for the top prize, but it's strange that Ellah is opting for the Zimbabwean housemate as opposed to her neighbour and lover Idris...The pic above sums it all, Idris clearly told her, it cannot work out between us.
This is not shocking because from the moment Idris had it all, his feelings towards Ellah changed. Matters were even made worse after he (Idris) had a chat with his mom who told him to go slow with the affair and wait till after the show to see if the relationship was going to work.
"To my family and friends both old and new, I love you all so much, " Ellah concluded.

At this rate, singer Desire Luzinda is selling like a hot cake. This Saturday, she will be performing in Kampala and Jinja. Just last Sunday, she was performing for the very first time in two months at Victoria bar in Kireka. Desire had taken a break after her jilted lover, Franklin, leaked her nud# pics. Revellers were seen taking up front seats early enough just to get a clear view of the Ekitone singer.
She did most of her old songs but the crowd loved her latest Ekitone and Ebyama songs. This Saturday, Davido will be performing at Freedom City, the very place Chris Martins performed and the turn up was not that good.
As if that is not enough, even Davido was here last December and the turn up was equally not good, so this time around, teaming up with Desire Luzinda who has not only been the talk-of-the town but also featured on UK-based international service broadcaster, BBC, this show should not be anywhere close to flopping.
After curtain raising for Davido at Freedom City, the Ekitone singer will then proceed to Sombreros in Jinja (over 80kms away) for the UG Smart Street Jam where she will be having a headline slot. Pallaso, Maro, Madoxx and Cindy will also perform at the Jinja street Jam.

Responding to a post by Karim (Zari's young brother), who seems to be disturbed by his BIG sister dating someone as young as him.
In his post yesterday, Karim wrote: "You are ashaming us, how can you date a boy my age. You moved from one man to another in less than 3 days."
Zari was quick to respond though she maintained that it was not Karim behind that post. "Diamond is just a friend of mine. It's never been written that female and male can't be friends, it's just the backward people that use that kind of perspective to blow things out of proportion."
Wema Sepetu, Diamond Platnumz lover is equally not happy with the 'business' between Zari and her better half, the same way Karim has decided to shout it out.
Zari is nine years older than Diamond Platnumz but the two have been cozy lately, something many treat as unusual. Zari had reunited with Ivan after dumping Farouk, but like her brother puts it, ''from one man to another in 3 days'', she is now with Diamond Platnumz.
The Tanzanian Bongo Flavor star has already introduced Zari to his mom. Platnumz, his mom and Zari took photos at the awarding event in South Africa.The couple was last cited at the Channel O Music Video Awards where Platnumz made Tanzania proud by taking home three awards.
These are some of the responses from Zari's sister, Ashurah and King Lawrence who happens to be more than a brother to Zari's on and off hubby, Ivan ssemwanga.

Botswana's Sheilla and Trezagah from Mozambique were the first housemates to be evicted. Next up was rivals Goitse and our very own Ellah to leave the house
"Right now I just wanna punch Macky 2," Ellah said the moment she got to the live stage. "This is the best thing that has ever happened to me," she added. The show then crossed to highlights of her and Idris kissing plus other steamy moments.
IK asked who was wife number 1 and wife number 2 between Ellah and Goitse now that they were both having feelings for the Tanzanian lad. "He is nobody's man," Ellah shot back but when asked what she thought of Idris playing them, she said; "I don't mind because I genuinely came to love his heart."
"Thank you Africa for keeping us in the house for this long," Ellah said as she left the Big Brother live stage. Eight housemates have med it to the finals and one of them will be USD 300,000 richer.
The eight finalists in the run for the top prize are; Idris, Butterphly, Mam' Bea, Tayo, Sipe, JJ, Nhlanhla and Macky2.

Tanzania's Bongo flavour star, Diamond Platnumz, won big in last night's Channel O Music Video Awards (CHOMVA14). He took home three awards that include; Most Gifted New Comer for his 'Number One' song beating South Africa's Cassper Nyovest and others.
The Number One song again won him the award of 'Most Gifted Afro Pop' running over the likes of Davido, Mafikizolo, Flavour and Iyanya.
As if that was not enough, the Number One song, again won him yet another award 'Most Gifted East', a category which could have been taken by either Eddy Kenzo or Navio but we lost out. Eddy was riding on the Sitya Loss ticket while Navio was nominated for his No Holding Back song, but 'our in-law' was more than determined to take all the categories in which he was nominated.
Unfortunately for Platnumz , he lost the biggest award of the night to Cassper who beat eleven others that include; Davido, K.O, Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy among others.
Meanwhile, at the awarding event, Platnumz was in the company of his mom and his new found love, Zari baby who is by the way 9 years older, but she is 'hotter than them' just like her song when she tried singing. Hmmmn Zari says that they have a project coming up with Diamond Platnumz, but not even Wema Sepetu is buying that talk, she has now resorted to fighting the mom of three; Wema and Diamond Platnumz Clash Over Zari
After showing Diamond Platnumz so much love, he is now the headlined guest at the Zari All White Party that will be held on December 18, 2014. Initially, we were being told there will be a surprise guest, but now not a surprise guest anymore, but Tanzania's top artiste will be here in December.
In May this year, Platnumz set a record when he won 7 awards in the Tanzania Music Awards and in the just concluded Channel O Music Video Awards, it was only him and Cassper Nyovest who got three awards each.

Nightlife lovers living in areas around Bunga have a new bar and lounge opening officially in two weeks time. A few days back, it was reported that Cindy's Love Affair With Ken On The Rocks, but Ken as acted swiftly and prevented the plane from crashing.
Cindy and Ken Muyiisa are now the proud owners of Da Boss bar which was originally Fire Bolt. The Muyiisa's are inviting friends and fans to be there on December 13, 2014 as the bar opens it's doors to the public. It's located right opposite Maybach Motors and Ken says, it's the 'Best After Work' bar.
It should be recalled at this point that Cindy's ex, Mario Brunetti has shares in the Bukoto based bar, Cayenne Lounge, so Ken feels this is the best way to appease Cindy who is two months pregnant for him.
In September, Ken visited Cindy's parents just after dating the Sample Dat singer for a short while something that had failed Mario to do after 10 years. Cindy and Mario have one child while Ken and his ex, Phina Masanyalaze also have a child together.
Some folks were following up with Phina to find out what she had to say on the current developments, but the Byansi singer simply said that Ken is not a responsible man. How can he set up a bar for Cindy worth shs 100M but can't provide basics to his own son?
"Regarding her pregnancy, they are free to have as many babies as they wish, but she should know that Ken is not a responsible man," Phina concluded.

Arnella Kamanzi, the 18-month-old baby who was tortured by a maid early this month was yesterday admitted at the pediatric section in Mulago Hospital for further medical examinations. "The baby was brought here for examinations and a number of tests will be done to establish whether she is in good health," confirmed a source at the national referral hospital.
Jolly Tumuhiirwe, the maid who is the main actress in the 'horror movie' has been charged with attempted murder and she is due to appear in court on Dec. 08, 2014. Experts are also looking at the video to be sure it was not doctored.
Meanwhile, speaking from Luzira prison, Jolly Tumuhiirwe has asked the 'world' to forgive her for what she did...."My dad in Kabale was very sick and yet my mom did not have any money. I asked my bosses for some money to send to my dad but they told me that I hadn't made a month yet and my father was dying, so it kept on haunting me."
"That is the more reason I referred the anger to the baby but I'm sorry. But that madam (Arnella's mom) is not easy. She used to say that I steal money from the clothes and Eric's wallet, I eat the babies food...and yet I can't eat the food, I'm not a baby, those were all lies, so, I was also not happy from my heart."
"I feel guilty..ok when I was doing it I thought I was disciplining the baby because also the mother sometimes slaps her, I also saw from the mom. The torch I used was small and it's not hard. I think, I will never do it again"
Jolly's experience of Prison
"It's not good at all even my fellow prisoners don't want to associate with me, they want to beat me up. In fact they were saying that I should join them in their rooms, nobody likes me and I'm feeling bad I will never do it again, I ask the world to forgive me and also tell the bosses who have maids to treat them well."

The maid who tortured Arnella could have gotten a worse off beating and we could be reporting something different here had Eric watched the bit when the maid was doing cruel things to Arnella.
It's a long video and actually the parents had not watched it in it's entirety. All Eric saw was that part when the maid was slapping Arnella for not eating.
It was then that Eric Kamanzi came home and beat up the maid for having slapped his daughter. Of course, the nanny was not aware she was being recorded, so she wondered why Eric was acting that way. This forced Jolly who had only worked for 26 days in that home to seek help from authorities.
Eric was later arrested and ordered to pay Jolly her monthly salary of 60,000/- and get rid of her. However, Eric and Angella Mbabazi got to watch the full recording of about 10 hours, they were shocked with what they discovered. In some scenes, the maid could be seen lifting Arnella by the hair, stomping on the back and kicking her in the process.
Eric showed them the clip, they were equally shocked leading to his release and the subsquent arrest of Jolly. On being arrested, Jolly said that she had also been beaten but was quick to add that Arnella was lucky, she did not bleed, but I bled. Jolly was even showing off a blood soaked T-shirt she was wearing at the time of the beating, she even showed off marks sustained from the caning on her back.
The police boss, Gen. Kale Kayihura has now ordered that an additional statement be got from Jolly Tumuhiirwe on the events leading up to the time of the video footage.

Lovers, Wema Sepetu and Diamond Platnumz, are in a fight of sorts following the latter's closeness to South Africa based Ugandan socialite, Zari Hassan Tlale.
On December 18, 2014, Kampala revellers will have three parties to attend, but one of them costs an arm and a leg. To attend Chameleone's 'One Million Show', you will have to part with 1M/- UGX and the other two parties (Arab Money + Zari All White Party) are pretty much affordable.
It should be recalled that a few weeks back, as Zari was making her way to TZ, she met Diamond Platnumz on board and one thing led to the other...soon the two were all over each other and even when they got to TZ, it became worse. More of that here; Zari and Diamond Platnumz An Item
Wema Sepetu has now put her weight behind Jose Chameleone following the steamy kisses Zari had with Wema's lover, Diamond Platnumz in TZ a few weeks back. In her post on Instagram, Wema says she has never been to Kampala, but she will come just to grace Chameleone's show.
On the other hand, Diamond Platnumz has continued promoting Zari's All White party on his profiles. Negotiations are still on for the Tanzanian singer to be the surprise guest artist at the White Party, we hope another war won't break out.

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. Days before Desire Luzinda's account was verified, her fans lost money after responding to calls from fake ''Desire Luzinda'' accounts that the singer was soliciting for money she will use for the photo scandal court case. She was forced to report the matter to police.

Talking to Desire Luzinda this morning, NTV's Faridah Nakazibwe tasked her to throw some light on a few pertinent issues.
I'm not Dating Seya - Franklin's intention was to put me down and you can't blame people for believing all that he said, because, I was dating him and whatever he did was out of anger. The long list of lovers he put out there is fake. A person like Seya, is a friend and a darling, I've never seen him without a shirt and so many others, but for Ben Misaga, I don't wanna talk about that.
Why are You Not MARRIED
You are a very talented and beautiful woman, why don't we see you settled down and married some day, Faridah asked! "When you are in the limelight, you meet the wrong people sometimes because the genuine one's fear approaching you. Those that have the guts to approach you have different motives and yet you are trying very much to settle but you keep on getting disappointed.
"I believe I will settle some day...and everything happens for a reason," Desire concluded.
So folks out there, Desire is back on the single's shelf and ready to mingle!!!!

'Revenge porn victim', Desire Luzinda, was this morning on NTV talking about her ordeal. For the last three weeks, Uganda has been trending globally courtesy of Desire's leaked pics and now the nanny who tortured an 18-month-old baby.
Talking to NTV's Faridah Nakazibwe, Desire said that she was getting over the issue. More of it here; Desire Luzinda's Oga Leaks Her Nud8 Pic
"I was forced to switch off my phone as Franklin continued threatening me. In the first days, people were judging me saying that look at this monster, how could you do such a thing, but with time, they noticed that I did not take those pics for public consumption. The first days were really tough times."
"Franklin actually called me a week before saying that his friends were asking him for the nud# pics, but I did not take it serious because I knew there were no pics of me out there, but when I saw them, I was shocked."
"Some of the pics I was not aware but others, oh yes, we were playing about in the living room which is normal. They were taken last year and I did not think he had them till now. If anything, I also have his pictures and if I wanted, I would have leaked them as well, but it's not my intention, and besides, I delete."
"Trust you me, most people take these pictures but when mine leaked, I stopped thinking. At the time, I was at my mothers house (she's given tissue)....!"
What Next - Desire now plans to do so many things like advocating for women who have been in similar situations, and, she is still doing music. Desire also tells the young women not to take pics because they could be used against them.
I'm a Hero and role Model - Surprisingly, I've gotten messages in my inbox of people telling me that you are my hero, you are my role model just because of the way I handled this whole thing. This gives me a pat on the back because not every one is hating on me (laughs). I'm a just a victim and I believe, time will tell if I released them intentionally or someone did this to bring me down.
Desire Grateful - I would like to thank Halima Namakula, Annette Nandujja and Sarah Zawedde, they have been extremely supportive. They could come to my home even at awkward hours just to check on me. I was crying and not eating in the first week, but I can't thank those ladies enough.
Radio and Weasel, Mariam Ndagire, Angela Kalule, my managers and so many others have been so supportive during this time and I would like to thank all of them.
Seeks Justice - I'm not into revenge and that is my nature, but if I keep quiet after what happened to me, It's like I'm not fighting for the rights of women out there. First of all, if there were strict laws, Franklin would not have released those pics. So I want this to be a learning lesson to all those who think they will do anything to a woman and walk away scot free. Women are hurt most compared to men when it comes to leaked photos. So I can't sit back, I need justice, not revenge but justice.

Akay has switched to playing doubles. Chameleone's young brother and his better half welcomed twins on Friday.
"Life is two-riffic with twins!! Canaan Ace n Connie Allard welcome to my world. God touched our hearts so deep inside, our special blessings multiplied," Akay tweeted.
"Congs my brother Salongo, " Weasel wrote. Meanwhile, his ex, who happens to be Weasel's current girlfriend is about to give birth.
"Hats off for my brother Kagawandagazza Akay !! Ladies & gentle men the first Twins in the Mayanja family are here !! Congratulations I cant wait to meet them already, " Pallaso wrote.
In a related development, Pallaso's wife and child went back to the US yesterday after getting a feel of UG.

Before proceeding on leave, the Urban TV gossip queen, Mary Luswata, was conducting auditions for one fan who will step in for her for the two weeks she will be away. "Don't be shy, this could be the first step to hosting your own TV show. Come over to Urban for a screen test. Waiting to meet you," Mary wrote.
Oh yes, some daring folks cum ardent fans were able to respond to that call, but from the comments, it's evident they are failing to do it the 'Luswata Way'.
A few days to starting her leave, some viewers were pleading with her not to go, and now, it's not yet a week from the time she left, but her diaspora fans are already complaining about the YouTube page which has not been updated since then.
However, even those who are standing in for her duiring this time are failing to measure up to her level and way of doing things prompting comments like, "During this time when you are away, can the previous episodes be run as we wait for you to be back.."
"Next time when you leave the show, go along with your show than leaving cartoons on the show."

Road Block studio boss, Peter Miles, is in love and this time, there is no looking back. The Frontline singer seems to have made up his mind on Sharie. Miles shared shots of his better half captioned with these sweet words; "Glad to have you in my life...nuff luv.."
Friends and fans are happy for him and among them is Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema. Some fans want him to get back with his ex, Cleopatra, but this seems highly unlikely as Cleo has since moved on (Cleopatra Shows Off Growing Bump and Lover) while others are willing to send their contribution money for the wedding if he can make up his mind on this one.

"I came willingly to the police head quarters to make a statement regarding the leakage of my nud# pictures and I apologized to the public because I know that there are so many people that were affected. I wish to seek protection as far as justice...because it was not in any way my intention nor for public consumption."
"I have recorded a statement and I'm willing to work hand in hand with the police to fight for my justice. I just want to thank those that have understood the situation in which I am, and I thank the police, they've done so much and they are very understanding.."
Desire was a tourist attraction as she walked around the corridors of the police headquarters in Naguru on Wednesday.
Seeks Police Protection
"Desire sought to have protection from the police because there were people who were misusing and abusing the photos and also trailing her, so she felt that her life was in danger," The police spokesperson, Polly Namaye said.
Her Lawyer Appeals for Calm
"The community should side with her and support her, government and the other authorities should all come together to support her because she is a victim and then we should help the authorities to get the perpetrators," said Sheila Namahe, Desire Luzinda's lawyer.
Seya Speaks Out - It's unfortunate this happened and she cannot reverse it, but Ugandans should forgive her. It's important that our daughters start behaving well and go back to the aunties (Ssenga's) because for us when we used to do such things, we could switch off all the lights, but these days, you people have your own conceptions. This will be a learning lesson to other girls, " the former Kampala Mayor, Hajj Nasser Ntege Ssebagala aka Seya said.
He was asked if he has any relationship with Desire and this is what he had to say; "I don't have any relationship with her, but we are friends."

Our ''in-law'', widely referred to as Emuyoba by team #AgataliikoNfuufu is celebrating his birthday today, he turns 37, at least going by his Ugandan Baguma passport. HBD!
However, his comment on Uganda's AFCON loss yesterday, leaves a lot to be DESIRED. The moment the final whistle was blown shortly after Andy Mwesigwa's red card and a penalty that led to the second goal, it was clear that Uganda's hopes of playing in the 2015 AFCON games had been dashed, and now, looking at 2017.
BUT, Desire Luzinda's jilted lover, Franklin Emuobor Emikeme seems to be happy with that and was celebrating on the eve of his birthday. Uganda Oyee!!!!, Franklin wrote on his wall.
Oyee!!! whatever it is could suffice if Uganda had won, but using it after yesterday's game was tantamount to a mockery. All that was required yesterday was a draw, but we ended up losing by 2 goals. Uganda last participated in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in 1978.
On one hand, you can't blame him, he is not Ugandan, but the Baguma in him and the four years he spent with our very own curvy and 'Ekitoneted' Desire, not forgetting the Equation song she sang for him while he shot those pics, you would expect him to have a little ingredient of the Cranes Namutima spirit, but the broda is no joke ohhh..!
Meanwhile, that was Desire Luzinda at the police headquarters in Naguru yesterday where she had gone to make a statement on the nud# pictures that Franklin leaked on the internet and other social media platforms. Was Franklin celebrating now that Uganda Police is looking for him to show cause why he had to make Luzinda's privates public? May be YES.

Shortly after being crowned the Kyabazinga of Busoga, Prince William Khadhumbula Gabula IV went to Coventry University in the UK. However, as he is furthering his studies, all does not seem well for his better half, Hilda Natwijuka Sheba Zaribwenda.
The clan elders want the Busoga King to have a princess from the region and Sheba seems to be okay with it though, she adds that she fell in love with a person and not a king.
"I was there when you needed a shoulder to lean on and never fell in love with a king but a person. I am not a Musoga and will never be. I will now let you be and pray that you get what you deserve. We meet in the next life Nadiope William Khadhumbula Gabula IV."
Hilda and William have been together for the last eight years. During the time when it was not clear who the Busoga King was, Hilda kept on supporting William and constantly reminding him that he was the winner.
'Kings are born, Princess are made, Only God gives the crown,' was Hilda's post after Gabula's election and on the coronation day, she wrote: "Kyabazinga Coronation, I know where I'm going, no retreat no surrender."
But from her tweet yesterday, the situation is: "No more you and I His Majesty Nadiope William Khadhumbula Gabula IV.

The Gyobera singer, Irene Ntale is in studio with the number one music doctor, Jose Chameleone working on their next track, Easy. The Swangz Av. signed singer has already two songs with Bebe Cool, Love Letter and Addiction.
Other songs by Irene Ntale include Onomwana, Olindaba, Smile Uganda among others.
The issue of doing a collobaration song with Jose Chameleone has been a tricky one. Melody, Iryn Namubiru, Leila Kayondo are some of the few artistes that have had that chance, and now Irene Ntale joins that line up.

Scroll down for the Ekitone Video
The police might be looking for Desire Luzinda following her leaked pics, but this has not stopped her from hitting studio and doing what she does best.
Just four days back, the Tebakulimba singer released her latest single, Ekitone, and now the video is out. In the video, Desire who is dressed in a white shirt, red tie and a tight red short in black net leggings revealing the curves...
"Nze Ndiina ekitone kitone sikulimba, Nze ndimu ebirabo birabo ooohhh, Nze ndina zaabu munda...." literally translated as; "I'm talented and i'm not lying, I'm gifted, and I've got gold underneath the ground.."
"The Ekitone video is finally out. Hope it's gonna make you scream," Desire wrote on her wall shortly after releasing the video.
From the time of the photo scandal, many fake 'Desire Luzinda' accounts have ben opened up and those behind the accounts are extorting money from unsuspecting victims. The money is being sent on Mobile money registered lines under the name of Desire Luzinda with claims that she is in need of financial help to sort out legal fees. One lost over 500,000/- and the other 217,000/-
The Ndina Omwami singer was forced to issue a disclaimer.
"Being a victim of fraud, I am saddened to learn about fake accounts that have been opened in my name. The very accounts are being used to ask people for money. I have 2 accounts; the official Luzinda Desire page and this very fan page. My team and I have managed the situation and are not in any way asking anyone for money so please be vigilant and don't fall victim.Thank you"

Cindy is once again in a dilemma just like her song sums it up. Back then, she was stuck between Mario and Ken Muyiisa, but very quickly solved it by dumping Mario, the father of her daughter, who had feasted on the singer's goodiez for over ten years minus putting a ring on it.
The Sample Dat singer opted for South African based businessman, Ken Muyiisa, who was quick to take things to the formal lane by visiting Cindy's parents..More of that here; Ken Muyiisa Visits Cindy's Parents
The latest info from Cindy seems to suggest that she is in a dilemma once again.
"Have u ever woken up one day and realised that EVERYTHING u thought u knew about someone so close to u is in fact a LIE? How do u move on from that? I'm in a dilemma to tell u the truth,"
Cindy thought she knew Ken so well but it looks like it's not the case, and, she is now asking, how does she move on from that!
Looks like Phina Masanyalaze is having the last laugh now!

Desire Luzinda loves soccer and has always supported the Uganda Cranes but this time around, the Ekitone singer was unable to attend for obvious reasons, so opted to watch the game from the confines of her 'hideout'. However, her die-hard fans were there clad in t-shirts with 'We will always be there 4 you' inscriptions.
Last month, Desire in (pic) was able to watch the Uganda Vs Togo game which we lost by one goal, also, the first game for the national team to lose at Namboole in the last ten years.
Yesterday, Uganda Cranes were able to beat Ghana by one goal in the early minutes of the game. The Ghana team has almost all it's players playing English teams like Everton, Milan and the likes but that was not enough to save them from the loss.
Uganda now has 7 points.

Leila Kayondo has some concerns as revealed in her latest post. The Kuzina Nawe singer notes that some of her friends and fans are demanding to know things in her life which makes her doubt if they are really friends.
Her biggest worry right now are the fans who say that she is not as happy as she claims. The ex-Dream Galz member wonders who determines one's happiness and she is forced to ask, Are you God or you are mad?
"Fake friends, don't think you will win my trust by telling me what my haters say or think about me.Yes am talked about by most," she added.
Leila Kayondo is dating a South African based Ugandan businessman, SK Mbuga, who has done quite a lot in elevating her music career to the next level. Leila has two collaboration songs with Chameleone, Relaxing and Hooray, and as you may be aware, this does not come easy especially when it's the music doctor.
She cruises a BMW convertible, has L-Kay Collections, a fashion house in Kansanga all courtesy of her lover man S.K. Mbuga and now wonders why some people would even think of her not being happy!!!
SK is or was dating Leila's elder sister, Fatumah, and they have kids together.

'Revenge porn' victim, Desire Luzinda, has shared her latest shots captioned; "I'm not hiding, am simply enjoying special moments with family and taking one day at a time. Love you dolls."
It was believed that the Ekitone singer was hiding in areas around Mbarara to try and take the pressure off herself. It was also said that she was trying to relocate to Rwanda but the curvy singer has cleared that bit with smiley pics.
She recently told the BBC that she was still living in fear after her Nigerian lover leaked her pics on the internet and other social media platforms.
The Minister for Ethics and Integrity also ordered for investigations into her case. Police says, she has up to three months to go and give her side of the story. They need to know if her nud# photos were taken with her consent as the hunt for her Nigerian lover progresses.
These are the first pics of Desire Luzinda since her photo scandal two weeks back. In the photos, she actually looks happy though still with family, she is yet to come out and interact with fans.

"I would rather remain single than have a beautiful wife that does not respect herself and turns out to justify her wrongs as rights, it's just a waste of time and calories." The post was followed by five other points and one of them was tagged to Zari and Diamond Platnumz - You bump into a singer on a plane and you call that a project!
The above post was edited three times as he tried to put his point through before eventually pulling it down. Zari's other ex-lover, LK4 was forced to respond to Farouk's concerns with the 'Are you mad?' pic..
"I just don't understand why women are being more like men and men being more like women! It's crazy. But anyways, hope he is ok, regardless of what. Private life is better life," LK4 concluded.
Zari dumped Farouk (Zari and Farouk No More) before going back to her hubby, but just recently, the mom of three was all over Tanzania's Bongo flavour star, Diamond Platnumz. They claim to be doing a music project, but given her way of doing things many doubt Farouk inclusive.

Dr. Jose Chameleone's wife, Daniella Atim Mayanja, has turned 29 today!
"You bring joy to my life,You are my Best friend my life and Joy. Together With Abba,Alfa,Alba,Amma and the Leone Island Family we wish you a Happy Birthday Mrs. Mayanja Atim Daniella, You are the love of my life," Chameleone wrote on his wall.
Last year, Chameleone's present for Daniella on her birthday was an airticket to Bahamas, more of it here; (Travel to Bahamas as Birthday Present for Daniella).
The mom of four was last spotted on Friday at the Kampala Serena Hotel during the premiere of LUZIRA - Escape from Uganda where Chameleone acts as Don Dada.
The Wale Wale singer is equally busy with rehearsals for the One Million Show that will be taking place on December 18. Fans who are up for the show have continued putting money aside. One of them has at least raised shs0.8m and was hoping that if the figure is lowered slightly, he could access the venue, but while appearing on one of the local TV's, Chameleone was clear, if you don't have 1m/- please don't come.
Given that price, Chameleone is certainly going to perform all his hits in the last 14 years ranging from the days of Mama Mia, Bei Kali through to Technology, Bayuda, Vumilia to now Wale Wale.

Revenge po#n victim, Desire Luzinda, has been trending for two weeks now. BBC, Metro and Independent UK are the latest foreign news services to feature her nud# photo scandal. BBC interviewed Desire and Cindy who have both suffered a similar fate of their natural suit pics leaking to the public.
Cindy said that she had to use that moment to release a song so that she is not looked at as a nud# star, but someone who can also sing. Cindy released Mbikooye which was a hit back then.
Desire seems to have heeded the call and as she says; Fighters Never Quit - Desire Luzinda.
Yesterday, using her facebook profile, she released the Ekitone song and Franklin, the jilted lover who leaked her pics was among the very first one's to like the post.
Most of Desire's fans were now asking her to think of a concert before the year-end. In June this year, Desire held her Black and White Affair concert, (Desire Luzinda-Black and White Affair), the first after six years. Franklin says he sponsored it but they failed to realise much from the tickets which were either given out freely or he just did not see the money.
Since then, the two were having issues that led to her arrest (Desire Luzinda Arrested Over Shs 16m Debt) and eventually photos leaking when she referred to Franklin as a conman. More on what led the photos to leak here: Desire Luzinda Was Conned by Nigerian Oga.

Desire at her performance in South Africa last year, the guy in a striped T-shirt had his dream come true a few weeks back.
"Since my brutal attack, I have since survived and comforted by over whelming support and messages in my in box. Just to let you know that I may not reply to all but I read and treasure all the kind words. God bless you."
That was Desire's next post following her apology. Yesterday, she was interviewed by BBC from her hideout. "Basing on the words, the posts online and what I've been hearing from media houses, I'm scared...but I'm hoping I can face it.". See More Desire, Cindy Speak to BBC Over Nud3 Pics
Bebe Cool, Irene Ntale and Eddie Kenzo among others have appeared on BBC and just yesterday, Desire Luzinda was featured under this tagline; 'Ugandan revenge po#n victim'.
Messages in her inbox are way too many that she can't reply each and everyone of them. Her facebook likes have continued to increase after what she is terming as a brutal attack of her Nigerian Oga making her privates public.
Her facebook likes now stand at 80,000 plus from 70,000 over the weekend.

Desire and Cindy have one or two things in common, they are Ugandan female artistes and also their nud# pics have leaked. First, it was Cindy in 2008 and six years later, Desire has suffered a similar fate or even worse because this happened at the time when social media was the in-thing. Whatsapp, facebook and other social networks did not make it any easier for Desire, no wonder she is into hiding as she told BBC's Catherine Byaruhanga.
"Basing on the words, the posts online and what I've been hearing from media houses, I'm scared...but I'm hoping I can face it."
"When my mother called me she was like honestly were you drunk, were you drugged, this is not you, I didn't even have an answer, I felt her pain, I cried when she was talking to me," Desire said.
The Ayokyayokya singer, Cindy Sanyu was also interviewed. "If the pictures come out, people will know, and every office you go to, they will be able to recognise you. When my pictures came out, I released a song (Mbikooye) because I didn't want people to just think of the pictures, I wanted them to know that I could also sing, I could perform."
Desire is not the first one and also has people like Cindy around her for advise, after all. Before Desire issued her apology, she was trying to promote one of her songs, 'Ekitoone', could this be similar to what Cindy was talking of in her interview with the BBC?

The Butterfly singer came out to clear the space using his facebook profile.
"I normally don’t respond to cheap/ false gossip about me or my wife. In our business you have to be ready for it. However I will make an exception this time for two main reasons. One is because of the genuinely concerned people who want to know the truth and secondly because I think the blogger who came up with this false story about my little child and a paternity test went too far."
"So just to be clear, this whole story about us getting a divorce making rounds on social media is just a made up story by some blogger who wanted to trend."
Behind every successful man, there is a woman, so Wahu rallied behind Nameless saying;
"Even with all the false stories that people create about my husband and I, we are still strong."

Yesterday was Rema's baby shower that was held at Fang Fang Chinese Restaurant. The Deep in Love singer was showered with presents for the yet to be born baby.
Bobi Wine's wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi was among those that attended the baby shower and had this to say: "She's glowing, baby shower happening now, I know she will make a perfect mama. Congratulations Rema."
Rema (23) is expecting her first child with the Sitya Loss singer, Eddy Kenzo. This will be his second child.
Earlier reports had indicated that she had given birth to a baby girl, but that was false.

Ex NTV Life Stories host who also quit the Mini-Buzz Bukedde show on October 30 to concentrate on her studies has denied allegations that she was arrested. She says that's nonsense that should be treated as such;
"There's nonsense that you MUST treat as nonsense especially if it's so false, so made up and so uncoordinated i.e ignore! People who spread falsehoods about others in the name of making money or news or whatever it is, God have mercy on you if He wants. Everyone's future and blessing is in God's hands, there's got to be more than lies to change that! Otherwise have a beautiful week ladies and gentlemen."
It was reported that Justine was arrested on Friday for having issued cheques to the tune of 2.5M that later bounced. The money lenders grabbed her the same way Panadol Wabasajja was grabbed. They told her that there is a recording deal in the offing, she came rushing.
She was taken on but later granted bail. The matter is filed under SD-32/01/00/2014. This was shocking bearing that just a few days back, Desire Luzinda was arrested and Nameere was one of those advising fellow women on what they should do to avoid scenarios like those of Luzinda.
In her positive message, she encouraged ladies to love Ugandan men as opposed to foreigners as she explains below:
"Ladies before you opt for foreigners remember that in most countries, morals are dead! Ugandan men are annoying but have some morals; there are things they just can't do to a lover or ex! Some man came here, married a Princess after a few disagreements, he saw it fit to disrespect his in laws in public including a King."
"Now this lunatic decides to destroy Desire and her child because to him after 4 years that was the best way to handle grievances in his relationship; he even had the nerve to brag about it and even promise to release more! Mbu he gave her a concert, did he compose or sing her songs?! Ladies take care, Desire take heart.."

Zari spent last weekend in Harare and this one was spent in Tanzania. While making her way to Tanzania, she met Bongo flavour star Diamond Platnumz on board and very quickly the two swapped seats with other passengers to enjoy each other's company. Champagne got the best of them to the point of taking pics with their tongues out.
While on board, a number of issues were discussed including her All White Party...It was not long when she realised that oh yes she can sing or has sang before..this is when the plan for a collabo was hatched. The two hit studio and in her own words she says;
"Thank you Diamond Platnumz for this opportunity. Africa get ready for our new project #Uganda, #Tanzania." We can't wait.
Zari and the Nataka Kulewa singer then went to Double Tree Hotel in Dar-es-Salaam where they enjoyed a cool breeze while sipping white wine in the sun...This is not going down well with Diamond Platnumz girl friend, Wema Sepetu (Miss Tz 2006), but Zari seems to be unstoppable.
At this point one fan noted; "Since her rich baby daddy left her, took the kids - she's been on a prowl! So Diamond is a fair game as far as she is concerned."
Meanwhile, Forbes will want to hear from Zari. Soon, you might see Zari being featured in the list of top East African socialites, if at all that category exists. Just like beauty contests, you are supposed to audition and when you don't, you should not be shocked with the outcome.
Forbes is NOW contacting Zari for her story so if she accepts and it is worth featuring on their space, Zari could be appearing on the Forbes Lifestyle Magazine one of these days, don't say we didn't warn you...!
Back to the Diamond Platnumz issue, Zari wrapped it up with this line; "Don't live your life enslaved by guilt, you must do what is right for you even if other people have problem with it #Diamonds#mummy fabulous self"

Desire Luzinda's facebook likes stand at 78,128 currently and they continue to increase. It should be noted that before the photo scandal, her FB likes were slightly above 50,000 but from the time the photos leaked on the internet and also spread on social media, she has got over 20,000 likes in just a week.
Before issuing her apology, Desire made sure she smuggles in her latest track 'Ekitone'.
Franklin is equally enjoying his new found family. His facebook likes were below 1,000 but have since shot up to over 4,000 and about to get to the likes limit of 5,000 friends.
Yesterday, Franklin was enjoying football and appealed to his new found followers not to bring up the issue of his former 'kyana' as he prefers to call her, it was football time and for as long as comments on his timeline were football related, he was receptive. To drive the point home, the OGA used Luganda..."Mbasaba mukomye ebigambo bya Desire nange wano" as seen below.
"Please guys let's move on from my relationship issue and have fun out here, it's football weekend," Franklin added.
I'm sorry - Desire Luzinda Apologizes for Leaked Pics
Desire has already issued her apology which spoke volumes about her father. He made some remarks that did not go down well with her.
In her apology, she was clear; "I want to sincerely apologise to my mother, to my daughter, to my family, to my friends, my fans and any other people who have been offended by these images."
Following Desire's apology, Franklin was asked if he will issue an apology for having released the pics, he said; "No Way, I can't."

Weasel's pregnant girl friend, Samira Tumi, is still in shock after what Weasel is terming as goons came to their Makindye Neverland home and beat up a guard who denied them access to the premises.
Neverland house is owned by Jeff Kiwa, Radio and Weasel but from the time the singing duo fired Kiwa as their manager, there is an ongoing court case to determine how this property matter will be resolved. More of that here: Radio, Weasel Secure Court Order to Evict Jeff.
It's not clear why Jeff had to go to the property well knowing that there is an order that stops him from doing so, but anyway, he together with Pallaso went to Neverland to shoot their latest video from there. The guard, Senyondo, denied them access. This was when Pallaso and Jeff and two others forced their way in and beat him very badly in the process.
As the battering was going on, Samira was busy recording the proceedings with her cell phone. Jeff told her not to record anything, but this alerted one of the fellows who was in action to throw an object at Samira smashing window glasses in the process.
Police was able to swing into action and Jeff Kiwanuka of Team No Sleep Entertainment Crew was arrested for assault and battery charges. Yesterday, Pallaso had to hand himself in after police men made 'life very difficult' for his wife as they asked her to produce Pallaso. She is in Uganda for the first time checking on her hubby who has been around for at least seven months. The sight of mean looking cops who wanted to arrest Pallaso made her freak out.
Meanwhile, pundits are keenly observing the pace at which Pallaso was arrested, arraigned in court and had he failed to raise the bail money, he would be in Luzira by now just like the other accomplices. Could this be the reason Pallaso is now trying to bring up the Karamagi issue?

The Mayanja family needs to sit down and sort out a few things, otherwise at this rate, something nasty might happen. Chameleone's young brother, Pallaso and Jeff Kiwa both of Team No Sleep were arrested for beating up a one Senyondo who was guarding Moze Radio and Weasel's Neverland home in Makindye.

Right now, Radio and Weasel are on tour in South Africa and are expected back on Tuesday, but hours after they had left, their former manager, Jeff Kiwa and Pallaso went to Makindye where they beat up Senyondo for denying them access to the premises. Why go there when the boys are away!!!!
Weasel Speaks Out
"Attention; I'ts a pity that for the second time running, Jeff Kiwa and his goons have attacked our home while we are away for our South African tour. We are calling upon all our dear friends, fans and family to stop this evil that is becoming a cancer.."
This is coming at the time when Samira Tumi had just said Yes when Weasel proposed to her this Tuesday, Mrs Weasel, as she prefers to be called is nursing injuries at a yet to be known hospital after goons attacked her. It should be recalled that she is very heavy. (Weasel and Samira Show off Baby Bump)
Police yesterday was able to arrest Jeff Kiwa (Ex-Goodlyfe Manager) and today, Pallaso took himself to Katwe Police station to make a statement but he was arrested. They were later arraigned in court on charges of causing grievous bodily harm. They survived going to Luzira prison after paying shs10m cash to secure their bail.
Their accomplices failed to get money and were sent to Luzira until Nov.21. On being released, Pallaso attacked Chameleone calling him a murderer in reference to the Karamaji case just because he had shared a video which showed Senyondo being beaten to pulp.
"Yes I got in a fight today (Nov6) and I am perfectly not denying that .. But that was because I went to Jeffs house to prepare for a shoot today and a random guy beat me with a stick that got nails in it multiple times on the head leaving me with multiple cuts and he coulda done worse if if aint rushed him to the ground in defending my self..."
Meanwhile, Pallaso's US based wife has only been around for five days but she should be thinking of going back. She had to lock herself in the house as police was hunting for the husband, she refused to open and the hunt was not about to stop, so Pallaso had to hand himself to the authorities at least for the wife to have some peace, and that's when he was arrested.

Socialite Zari Tlale Hassan (34) is in talks with Tanzania's Bongo flavour star, Diamond Platnumz, who she met on a plane enroute to her next destination after spending three days in Harare.
While on board, Zari talked about a number of things, her lifestyle and of course her holiday in Harare.

May be yes, now that they are in talks.
It was not long before she leaned on the star discussing many other business dealings in swahili. Diamond Platnumz, real name, Nasib Abdul Juma (25) is a Bongo flavour recording artist from Tanzania.
Zari was among those who were comforting Desire Luzinda over her leaked photos that went viral for the last seven days.

Desire apologized for the leaked photos saying that her jilted lover breached the trust.

It's taken a week for singer Desire Luzinda to make a statement on the nud# photos that were leaked on the internet and spread on social media.
Highlights of Desire LUZINDA's apology:
"To all my fans in Uganda and all over the world, as you might be aware, there has been a lot of fanfare and discussion in the media and social media about my photos taken in private that were leaked to the public by a jilted lover."
The photos which showed the singer's face in a jovial mood as they were being shot plus other poses surfaced online last Friday but by Saturday evening, the pics had gone viral.
This is it: Desire Luzinda's Oga Leaks Her Nud8 Pic
"The facts about this matter are that these were photos taken in privacy with someone I loved. In our private moments, we all have our “moments of madness”. The bottom line is that I trusted this person and never hoped that something done in private would find its way to the public domain irrespective of our differences.

In Desire's apology, she says this was a breach of trust.
"I want to sincerely apologise to my mother, to my daughter, to my family, to my friends, my fans and any other people who have been offended by these images. Like I said, this was a breach of trust by someone I loved. I take full responsibility for having lost my mind to take such shameful pics. This person has not only abused that trust but now seeks to drag me down."
I'm a decent person, a mother and industrious woman, so these images in no way should define who I am. To all my fans who have stood by me in this period asking me to be firm amidst the tempest, a big thank you, Desire concluded.

Many have put her on suicide watch following what happened to her last Friday that has since been the talk of the town. The latest is that the Minister of State for Ethics and Integrity, Rev. Fr. Simon Lokodo has directed police to investigate musician Desire Luzinda and her ex-lover, Ebikeme Ebuomor Ebenhron Franklin alias Baguma.
In her latest message, the singer says; ''Fighters Never Quit." This means that she is not about to give up with her music career. A fan was asking her yesterday that she needs to come out with a statement for the fans, but the Ekitone singer replied that; I'm quiet for a reason.
When the time is right, she will certainly issue a statement but at the moment, she is still being judged. Police is reluctant to act on the orders of the minister and their argument is, Desire was only a victim, however, if she can come and report the matter to police, then they will act accordingly.
Right now police is investigating the issue of a Nigerian national who came as a visitor and now has a Ugandan passport. According to his file, this is the second passport which was issued in March 2014 after he claimed that the one issued in 2011 got lost.
Words of encouragement......
Mariam Ndagire - "What befell my fellow female artist DESIRE LUZINDA is unfortunate and as a woman and female artist I humbly request you all not to judge her but pray for her to go through this storm and come out of it in one piece. Desire wherever you are know that you have a shoulder to lean on in me and its not the end of the world. Always remember to love yourself more than any other person."
Zari - "I'm behind you, with love from South Africa."
Mary Luswata is of the view that Desire Luzinda should not be arrested because she has suffered enough.

The comedian was in bad shape a few days back after the vessels pumping blood to his heart were blocked, but he has since improved and feeling better, though, he requires a Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) surgery which will be carried out in India after raising over shs40m. He needs you support.
On December 13, 2014 Katto Lubwama is organizing what he has termed as 'The Legendary Act of Kato Lubwama' and the fee will be $100. Some of his fans were complaining of the huge amount but the comedian said; "Theatre is all about love so this is a lifetime legendary act on stage."
Those interested in tickets can call this number 0752621582 and once they say 'bisso' they will be entitled to a discount.
Regarding his acting and political ambitions, Katto says that he will continue acting and the campaigns will go on as planned now that he intends to unseat the Rubaga South MP John Ken Lukyamuzi, The Man.

It's just days after Producer Didi and Panadol Wabasajja were sent to jail for recording and distributing x-rated music videos.
State Minister for Ethics and Integrity, Rev. Fr. Lokodo, who arrested Panadol Wabasajja last month has now directed police to question Desire Luzinda on the nud pics that have made rounds on social media since Friday. The minister also ordered for the arrest of her ex-Nigerian lover, Ebikeme Ebuomor aka Baguma Franklin who is currently believed to be in Kuwait.
The minister added that the two will be charged with exhibiting pornographic material contrary to section 13 of the Anti-Pornography Act.
The act reads in part: "A person who produces or participates in the production of, or traffics in, publishes, broadcasts, procures, imports, exports or in any way abets pornography contrary to sub section 1 commits an offence and is liable, on conviction, to a fine not exceeding five hundred currency points or imprisonment not exceeding ten years or both."
Five hundred currency points is the equivalent of shs50m or 10 years in prison.
The Tebakulimba singer was able to make a posting on her facebook profile, but it was one of her songs dubbed Ekitone. Meanwhile, her facebook likes have shot from 50,000 to over 60,000 in just three days. One of her fans was asking her to come out and at least issue a statement or apologise to her fans for what happened, but the singer said she is quiet for a reason.
It has also turned out that some of her problems are attributed to the VIP tables at her Black and White Affair that were sold on credit and todate, they have not been cleared. To make matters worse, some of the guests pledged at the concert which doubled as a charity event, but they have still not honoured their pledges leading to the problems Luzinda is faced with currently.
And being faced with a ten-year-jail sentence after her pics in all angles have done rounds on social media with loan sharks on her case, what does the diva do?

As millions of viewers are still getting to terms with Desire's pics that were leaked last Friday by her Nigerian Oga, Franklin, the singer is in studio working on her next song dubbed Tononya which means Don't Look for Me.
The song which is likely to be an instant hit will feature Franklin Ebuomor Ebikeme, and the message is clear, don't look for me following what you have done...!
When Franklin was taking those shots, Desire in her suit was singing for him the Equation song...'Our love is so magical elinga equation ooohh ebalancingahh..I will hold you tight never let you go (by then she was holding the center folds) I promise I will never make you cry..Oh Baby....Nkukwataa nga ekyatiika..."
Ebikeme was busy recording while enjoying the moment back then, but last week, the two fell out after he failed to bail her from loan sharks who wanted her to spend a night at Luzira prison for a shs16m debt.
The Equation singer was saved from the coolers after Seya raised shs10m. It was then that Desire gave her version in which she said that the Oga conned her (Desire Luzinda Was Conned by Nigerian Oga) something that Franklin was quick to rubbish and also gave the main reasons why he did not come to her rescue, I Could Not Rescue Her, She Was Cheating On Me.
Desire has given facebook a break since the activity there is way too much for her and resorted to a relatively low activity Instagram and amazingly, she is strong. "Talent is where the heart settles. Thank you all I'm more on my feet than my head down..."
Regarding her trending V-pose, she says ''Spread the love and do the challenge. This is crazy." She is also sorry for her Seya who is being dragged into this with fake comments.
This is what led the Nigerian Oga to spill the beans....

Take It or Leave It, We're Married-Joel Isabirye - The couple was to celebrate their first anniversary on December 05.
Last week, Rebecca changed her facebook profile name from Rebecca Jjingo Isabirye to Rebecca Alice Jjingo. The Beat FM radio host does not want to be defined as Isabirye's wife anymore after he accused her of stealing shs30m and the false stabbing accusations.
Meanwhile, on (Oct 26), their neighbour in Najjera heard them shouting on top of their voices and on coming to the balcony, she saw Joel running while yelling for help as Jjingo held a kitchen knife. "Help, help the woman wants to cut me," Isabirye yelled but Jjingo was not taking any of that as she said; "You have tortured me enough!"
Joel was like she is free to come back provided she can change her ways but Jjingo is like It's over.

The celebrity couple was spotted at Flames on Wedneaday attending a birthday party. They also spent the Halloween night at Club Venom. Weasel is such a darling, he's been taking care of the back pains plus other hormonal changes from the time he came back from the US a few weeks back.
In the pic, Weasel is seen feeling the bump and Samira enjoying every moment. Two months back, Weasel went to her parent's home in Jinja for a traditional ceremony, also known as 'Okukyala' where a series of discussions were held including the dates for the introduction ceremony and eventually the wedding.
Meanwhile, the two months he was away, Samira could not stand it all by herself, she had to reach out to him using her facebook profile; "Can't wait to see you again..." and Weasel's response was, "Coming home soon."
Any minute from now, Samira will be downloading. In a related development, Radio and Weasel held their Neera Concert at Freedom City and Mukono and on Sunday, they were in Kasangati. The dynamic duo were able to perform their old hits plue their very latest songs that include; Simunino, Okwetegereza and Kukumba.
