These two workmates comedian Napoleon and ex Urban TV host, Mary Luswata, are getting real close. When the two are not in studio, they are busy looking each other in the eye and sharing jokes together. Napoleon is one of those who were hit below the belt by Mary Luswata, but he now says, she is the best thing that has happened to him lately.
"Mary Luswata, my new friend. Because of her, I have learnt a few things about media, about judging the people we see on TV.
But today, we work together on #GalaxyFM, she is the first to laugh at my lines and say, "Spare my ribs, you will be the end of me.
But that aside, usually after the show we are engaged in off-air conversations and I have noticed something about this girl; she is a normal girl. I see a girl, who like any other girl, has her insecurities, her fears, who cries like any girl and laughs with from her heart, who has genuine affection, who has deep connections with her friends, who fights for her dreams and actually wishes well for people. And strikingly I see a woman who has an undying love for her daughter.
I have learnt that what your boss wants might antagonize people a lot or portray a totally different picture of you.
"Good soul, good person I must say," He concluded.

What happened to Mary Luswata? she looks different
The former Scoop on Scoop host looked different as she showed off her new look at the Uganda Museum on Sunday where she was attending the Mchomo festival, the short TV star was unrecognizable.
In the above pic, we compare her back then pics and now, you can't miss the difference and not even applying make-up can explain the huge difference. It's the red lips that look the same in all the pics.
The ex-Urban TV presenter gave birth to a baby girl late last year, in November to be exact. It's not clear if her changed looks are linked to that, but one thing is for sure, she is a shadow of former self.
Her skin complexion then could easily be compared to Zahara Toto, who is clad in denim knee high boots to strategically cover her dark knees. Toto has also tried putting on Luswata's shoes in her one hour Gossip show on Spark TV dubbed The Live Wire, though you have to make sure your TV volume is down because she is loud enough.
When Zahara learnt that Luswata will be attending the Mchomo festival, she deployed her crew who she fondly refers to as 'Kifeesi' in all corners of Uganda Museum, it was not long before the camera's spotted her, but it took a lot of verification and scrutiny to conclude that this was Mary Luswata.
Some concluded that it was her talk-show that led to the disguised looks, she does not want to interface with the people she rubbed the wrong way.

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...

"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.

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.

Gossip queen, Mary Luswata, on her Scoop on Scoop show had this to say;
"Juliana Kanyomozi has failed to grow musically, she is producing the same stuff she produced 10 years ago. You look at a song that she has released and is calling brand new and you shudder."
Team Juliana has taken that as constructive criticism because moments later, the Woman singer embarked on the video shoot for her latest song, Kalibatanya, which Mary Luswata is branding as average.
And today, Juliana came out confirming exactly that with a quote from former professional basket ball star, Michael Jordan.
"My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength."
For now, the fans should just wait for what is next as she turns the perceived weakness into a strength. However, the other female artists are also not seated may be this was the reason behind Luswata's opinion.

"It is such sad news about the ban of show, what are we going to do without her?....A wise man once said, "every dog has its day"....lmfao"
Unfortunately for her, the show is still on. The ban talk originated from an exchange with an online blogger, who she branded as gay, something that attracted a lot of outburst. This led some to even think the Scoop on Scoop show had been banned.
It was not long before those who have fallen victim joined Robin Kisti. "Don't wake up, cause I don't wanna end my dream," Judith Heard wrote...Then one responded to Robin's post saying that what if it's not true that the show has been banned...
"No bad deed goes unpaid! Don't expect God to bail her when her job was to make other people feel bad about themselves. She never taught anyone any lesson but create hatred within peoples hearts," Robin Kisti added.
The post attracted a lot of comments but one wrote that;
"Robin, you want to know the truth? Most of the people who have commented here don't hate that show. in fact, they don't miss watching it. They grab popcorns, open ears and laugh out loud when they hear her insult celebs."
For the record, both Robin Kisti and Mary Luswata are TV hosts. Robin's show follows events while Luswata follows celebs.

This morning, her fans were tuned to 100.2 Galaxy FM, but Mary Luswata was not on air. It later turned out that she had been stopped from working at that station as she is now the new host for the TXR show on 94.8 XFM. Urban TV and XFM are both owned by Vision Group.
On the show, listeners can either call in, use facebook or twitter to request a song of their choice. Unlike her TV show where she is tough and mean while blasting celebrities and socialites, on the TXR show, it's the calm version of Luswata who is jovial and full of jokes. However, be warned, she can still bite when provoked.
"This is where it all started, In this studio is where I did my first show, And now years later am back, playing your requests tonite on 94.8fm, 8pm to 10pm weekdays. Dont miss out," Luswata wrote minutes into the show.
The show was being hosted by Big Trill before Mary Luswata assumed that role. One fan requested a song by Mary Luswata, she quickly dealt with that one before playing "Something of My Life" by Juliana and the Ganda Boys.

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."

When Mary Luswata got on telly, which is also her comfort zone, she revealed more of what transpired during the time of the ML-JH hug.
"I'm aware of all the comments doing rounds with my choice of shoes. I was going to walk on hard terrain, how was I supposed to walk with heels in a place like that, If you don't like the shoes, choke on them."
"This picture with JH, let me say something... Judith Heard and I are not friends, I'm doing my job...those people who are looking for actors and actresses should better look for her, she is the best character you can ever have. She walks up to me, hugs and pecks me but she is so frail and bonny... saying how she loves me, we are both women and we should not be fighting..."
"This is my job and when I see you screeewing someone don't say but we kissed and hugged the other time, how could she do that?"
Meanwhile, during the awards, Judith Heard appealed to Luswata to stop disrespecting them. NTV Login host, Riobin Kisti was also given a chance to say something at the award event, she also thanked Mary Luswata for having made most of them famous.

The National Youth Festival Awards (Kadanke) were held on Saturday at Kati Kati grounds. The highlight of the event was when socialite Judith Heard bumped into Urban TV's Mary Luswata, many thought a fight was going to ensue, but the mom of three just embraced the lady who has made it a point to calling her all sorts of names when she gets the opportunity.
In their latest drama series, Mary blamed the socialite for hanging out with Adebayor, something she did not deny, but was quick to tell her that the life she lives, Mary will only see it in movies.
JH and ML were some of the guests who gave out out awards at the event. Below is the full list of winners.

What goes around really does come around. Urban TV gossip queen, Mary Luswata, using her wall cried out loud to the over 40,000 followers on her facebook page to get a life and stop posting hateful messages on her timeline. She seemed to be in shock that her page which was meant for fans that love her show actually has some 'haters' following.
Below is her post in detail;
"You know what's funny? I don't know half of the people who like this page. I have never been to your walls and I don't know what you look like, oh and I have never invited anyone to like this page but strangely you care so much about what I post, like my page and comment on my posts plus posting on my wall, my suggestion is if you hate Mary Luswata, don't follow her around.
"You know ? hit the button when she on, ignore her facebook and twitter but you do the opposite.......I don't know about you but I find this funny.This page is for the people who love my work. If you don't, find somewhere to spend your time."
All the commenters seemed to be in agreement that she was getting exactly what she does to the local celebs. Amazingly, she contradicts herself in the above statement when she says that I have never invited you to like this page when in actual sense, at the end of her five-minute show, that is what she asks her fans to do, like the page or follow her.

On Tuesday, Zari turned 34 and over the weekend, she will be hosting her close pals to a sumptuous birthday treat.
The five-minute-show was way too stuffed with the Hady-Roger message (Roger does not date bleached and uneducated women) and the new Obsessions members who were advised to go and work on their looks, she also smuggled in the Zari clip which according to her could not wait.
She first warned her viewers that on the Zari clip, she will go a bit personal now that she had been equated to that ka-pig.
"Zari, this picture that you posted sort of reminds me of you as you have a lot in common with this 'jamma' in terms of complexion, so it looks more of you as opposed to me. But you know Zari, you're so boring and at times I don't even like to pick fights with you because your intellect levels are so low."
"I can't fight with a woman, a middle aged bimbo, It's very draining for me. I pick fights with people who can challenge me at intellectual level but you, you can't even communicate in English, how I'm I supposed to fight with you. And at this age, what you should be doing is taking care of yourself, because you know, you are paid for s#x at this age and you are not yet as old as some people I know, but you are already paying for s#x, imagine what it will be like five years from now, you will be spending a little more money."
My advise is that you should invest your time in things that bring you money and when you get to a point where you are have to spend a little bit more on your sex boys, go to the Gym.
She concludes with a joke about Kim Kardashian; "For Kim Kardashian, it can be like a rap concert but for Zari, you can have like a UN conference because at least many have passed there and you can have a UN summit on Ebola just down there."

Urban TV's Gossip Queen, Mary Luswata had her shot on the Kenzo fight. I've been saying so many good things about you, your winning awards and we are reporting about Sitya Loss, but, we can't only say good things about you, your're not the ones who feed us and we don't sleep in your sitting rooms. We can't only wake up in the morning and start saying oh Kenzo, Oh Kenzo, Ohhh Kenzo.
If you have beef with someone why show up at their press conference. For me as journalist, I give both sides of the story, these two are grown ups, and as a professional, I can't get caught up in this mix. You punch someone because they said what! and how?
Lol Uh Uganda...I won't even call Rema because I considered doing so, I want these two to tell us the truth, but on calling their lines, none of them were picking. Kenzo's ring tone is Sitya Loss while Kasuku's ring tone is Red Banton's Sijja Kuva Kampala Nganye.
Before signing off her five-minute show, Mary Luswata said; "Enjoy your weekend and know that I'm not about to be beaten soon because I know how to run this game."

The comedian died on Thursday after suffering a cardiac arrest. She was 81. She suffered a cadiac arrest on Aug 28, 2014. At the time of her death, she had just filmed a special award show of E!'s Fashion Police.
"If there is a secret to being a comedian, It's just loving what you do," Joan said in 2012. Many Fashion police lovers seem to suggest that the show will not be the same without Joan Rivers.

A pic of a fairly old bushy lady (inset) was doing rounds on social networks tagged as Mary Luswata, but the Scoop on Scoop TV host has come out displaying her center folds saying the photoshopped pic is actually not her.
The Urban TV presenter went on to say that if anyone wants to show you my body, then it must have a unique feature, which is a a horizontal scar.
Luswata is a force to reckon to the point that NTV has come up with a celebrity show dubbed Loud N City that is going to rival Scoop on Scoop. However, with Luswata's style, her five minute show is likely to be unrivaled for sometime.

Urban TV gossip queen, Mary Luswata (ML) has revealed what led her to apologize to socialite Judith Heard.
While talking to one publication, The In vestigator, Luswata revealed how her mom had shut her out completely for as long as she did not retract her statements on the socialite. She kept on persuading her until Mary obliged.
In fact, her mom (who does not like her show) has been of the view that Mary had better drop that show for something else, but the pint size presenter is like nope, I’m old enough to make my own decisions.
In her five minute show, she has literally talked about half of the local stars that recently appeared in the top 100 celebrity list.
The TV host who doubles as a Sunday school teacher is still trying to connect with her mother who only joined her during the second year at University. Both her parents left the country when she was in Primary five. Luswata's dad died a few months after returning to the country.

When Brenda Nambi leaked her first set of nud# pics, they were overshadowed by the death of Juliana's son, Keron. When that was done, she released yet another set, this time with firm center folds, as though making a point that her breasts are not sagging after all.
The No nonsense Mary Luswata did not wait for her to release more before attacking. "You know that you will never make it in the Ugandan music industry, why, because you know that you are not talented."
She goes on to unleash the bad girl in her;
"We heard about your new nud3 pictures, they look clearer than the first ones. Your body is so hard to the extent that if someone was so thirsty and someone wanted to squeeze some juice from you, not even one drop would come out. Your body is so dry, you should be ashamed of taking nud#s and posting them online."

Last Saturday, Urban TV's Mary Luswata was the nights bar-tender at Namugongo based Asylum bar. Clad in a white tank top, black bra and denim shorts, the gossip queen served her guests with a 'big smile'.
Earlier in the day, Luswata had invited her fans claiming that this was the first time she was interacting and probably the last. She also added, it was for research purposes.
Then came Dave Kazoora, who after taking one too many felt it was the right time to hit at Luswata who at the time was behind the counter and not telly. Kazoora took jabs at her but she saved them for her next show.
"Kazoora should have just called me up for an interview or let me know that he was back from prison. Apparently, Kazoora had been drinking from 10pm to 1pm. Is your wife that bad that you don't want to go home!...I'm in the club serving some drinks and Kazoora comes..You You You!"
"And I'm like Eh Kazoora, did you miss me the time you were in prison, anyway, I have work to do don't threaten me. This was when Kazoora demanded for a microphone while shouting on top of his voice, Hey Luswata, for us, we do not need Govt's help, I was on TV before you.."
"Kazoora has a wife and a child, but he leaves club at 7am...Kazoora you are an expired TV presenter, you had your time and it ended, every time you are out of business, ...I'm the new talent and if you can't deal with it, find something to do with yourself."
The gossip queen says her show is not for people to like, it's for people to watch.

Zari on Mary Luswata!!!
First, it was Judith Heard who was featured on Mary Luswata's show which normally has something negative about the person being profiled, but in the end, she ended up apologizing for calling Judith Heard illiterate.
On her show yesterday, she was hitting back at an Ebonies actress who is behind the social media bashing of #MaryLuswata. On this one, the TV personality said that she only learnt of her after her smearing campaign, but before that, she hardly knew who Hady Sengo was. She then went on to liken her to the galz who take beer with a ''straw in a beer bottle''.
She proceeded to her next topic which was Weasel fighting with Pallaso over a gal and the gal is none other than Sheebah. Remember, this very TV personality said Sheebah had smelly panties.
Before all that could settle, an earlier clip is threatening to go viral in which Mary Luswata asks her viewers if they have really taken a closer look at Zari's boo, Farouk, who looks muscular that if he was put in a ring with Ivan, he could leave with a face that his mother could not recognize...
"Zari would you honestly prefer a broke man who cannot defend you...I don't even know why people say he is handsome, have you looked at that guy closely, " Luswata asked.
When this got to Zari, she did not waste any minute in shooting back as seen from her posts in pic...!

Luswata Apologizes to JH
First, it was Hilderman apologizing to the Catholic church for the use of the clergy attire, and now, TV presenter, Mary has apologized to socialite Judith Heard for calling her illiterate on TV.
Mary Luswata, a celebrity gossip presenter on Urban TV used her show to say that she was sorry for having attacked Judith Heard. An obviously humbled Mary placed an on-air call to Judith Heard saying she was sorry and ready to make peace with her.
Earlier on, Judith Heard hit her wall with this line: "Mary Luswata has always insulted me and I have never asked her why? but this time she went too far by using these words about me. I can't exchange anything with her , she's either illiterate or semi illiterate."
This was followed by unending bashing of over 500 comments on facebook of mostly those who had been attacked by the presenter.
Urban TV is owned by Industrial area based Vison Group and it's yet to be added on DSTV.

JH VS. Mary Luswata
Socialite Judith Heard has broken her silence on Mary Luswata, a celebrity gossip show host on Urban TV. Mary has had a go at most celebs and even those who hang around them are not spared like Goodlyfe's Bread Kenneth who she called a 'Wololo'. She also told her viewers about Sheebah's dirty panties.
In her latest remarks, she says that Judith Heard has had little or no formal education. "Judith Heard is nothing, I can't exchange anything with her, she's either illiterate or semi illiterate."
Mary Luswata on Urban TV has insulted me always and I have never asked her why? but this time, she went too far by saying these words about me," JH wrote on her wall.
This is an unedited version of Judith Heard's response to Luswata's remarks;
Trouble stems from the time when Judith Heard talked of having a Reality Show on Urban TV, something that Mary was quick to cross check only to be told that there was no reality show in the pipeline.
Judith Heard's close pals, most of them getting to know Mary Luswata for the first time were quick to tell her not to bother with Luswata, because, she just criticizes and insults as opposed to gossiping.
Sue Ochola, JH's closest pal had this to say: "Whatever she has against you (Judy) should have been left behind the camera. Do not bring your personal vendettas and emotions to work. It's unprofessional, weak and pathetic, Please Dear Mary."
Mary Luswata recently joined 100.2 Galaxy FM doing the Morning Saga Poko Poko on weekdays from 6-10am where she continues doing her celebrity gossip.
