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?
