Barbie Kyagulanyi's posts on social media put Zuena Kirema on pressure
The top three 'First Ladies' in the music industry are Barbie Kyagulanyi, Daniella Atim Mayanja and Zuena Kirema.
They all have a social media presence and Barbie being an author, it's not unusual to come across a good post. A case in point is when she referred her hubby to a weed growing through a hard concrete.
Barbie compares that weed to Bobi Wine who in spite of what he has been through will get there just because of the strong foundation that was laid. The post was made in reference to the troubles Bobi Wine was having with the Mengo authorities over his land, first in Mulago and just recently in Busabala.
This has boosted his bid to contest for the Kyadondo East parliamentary seat causing a lot of panic to the other would-be candidates.
Daniella Atim Mayanja is so laid back, has very few words and not very active when it comes to the use of social media, in fact, once pushed to the edge, she can beat [Chameleone's Wife Daniella Atim Beats Up a Scribe] and that's her, you can afford to brand her as anti-social when it comes to the use of social media.
Last but not least, is none other than Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema who uses her Facebook portfolio to advertise her pastries business, events management biz and of course, nice shots of her and hubby.
However, she has now tried to put a bit of life to her page, but the direction she is taking looks like she is shooting herself in the foot.
"Ladies, we need friends who are going to uplift us to be better mothers, sisters, workers, useful & respective ladies in the community. We don't need friends who keep updating us about the happening events around us, latest trends of clothes, friends who see a free drink in front of them & act like they've seen heaven."
One of her followers was forced to ask, "Should we also ignore Bebe Cool events?" He got no response from her.
"Let us accept, this Musoga lady is beautiful," one of fan complimented. "Thanks but I'm not a Musoga," Zuena replied.
She explains her roots here; I'm not a Musoga - Zuena Kirema

Bebe Cool's Zuena opts for short hair
Bebe Cool's baby mama, Zuena Kirema has opted for short hair giving hair extensions a break.
"Decided to cut off all my hair...feeling fresh like a new born.." she wrote.
"You look 18 and under, Bigooli is the way to go.." one fan shot back.
What do you think of Zuena's short hair do?

Bebe Cool had earlier planned a boat cruise as part of the birthday celebrations for Zuena, but that has since been postponed to April 8. The 18nOver singer had to think of another gift to his lovely wife and mom of four who turned 31 yesterday, it was a 'Zuena' tat on his lower chin.
"And he decides to ink my name on his neck..yippeee Am truly loved, what more can I ask for on my birthday...thank you for loving me boo. I will be yours till old age," the excited Zuena wrote.
Having given her a Merc last year, Bebe had to come up with another surprise gift and this time, it was tattooing her name on his lower jaw and that is the very area that Zue always pecks if she is not working up those beards and dreads. Some believe it's even a better gift than the Mercedes which she rarely drives.
More on the birthday celebrations, Bebe Cool hatched a plan with Sauti Sol, one of Zuena's most loved musical groups to sing the birthday song on her special day, she loved every bit.
"I don't know where he got Sauti Sol knowing very well i love their music..he decided to play this video for me at exactly midnight...am so overwhelmed bambi, thank you boo & thank you for always making sure that each year on 3/4 (my birthday) before it clocks midnight,you're right by my side to sing happy birthday to me, not forgetting dragging the kids out of bed to join your choir.."

Rich men are bossy, don't date them - Zuena
Last week, Zuena shared two throw back pics clearly detailing how far they've come with her hubby. In the pic, you can't miss Zuena the model and Bebe Cool's rough dreads.
On that night, it rained heavily and yet their first car, a Golf GTI could leak whenever it rained. Bebe parked the car on the side and the two took to the back seat as the dash board and gear lever area got soaked by the heavy rain.
Zuena got a polythene bag and covered at least the gear lever so that they could proceed with the journey after the rain but during that time, Bebe told Zuena these words;
"Honey, I'll make you the proudest and happiest wife, Inshallah. You've been here for me when I need you most and trust me, I will never let you down."
Today when I reflect back to our journey of 15 years, I thank Allah for the husband and friend he blessed me with."
Zuena then went on to conclude;
"Ladies, if he loves, respects and cares about you...he's definitely a keeper. Don't rush to date rich men because, they will never respect you, stay with your broke man who will appreciate you for being there when he was a nobody."

In the past, Zuena and Bebe Cool have been having simple parties with fans having Nyama Choma as part of the celebration but this time around, the couple is taking it a notch higher when Zuena turns 31 on April 08, 2017.
Last year, the mom of 4 got a Shs 400M Mercedes as a birthday present from her baby daddy. All eyes will be on the present for this year as the couple celebrates with the Gagamel fans on a boat cruise to Mutoola Island.
Bebe Cool alongside other members of the Gagamel band will be performing. VIP tickets will go for 120K while ordinary tickets will cost 80K.

This was the look on Daniella's face when she spotted the father of her children with Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena. It's filled with love and for Daniella, it's been love all the way.
Daniella is seen zooming in to be sure that all is well.This was at the just concluded Purple Party that was held at the Uganda Museum a week back. However, there was nothing to Daniella here, but Zuena has never come to terms with the tight Bebe-Daniella hug of seven years back, it left a lot to be desired.

Bebe Cool was on Saturday all over facebook showering his beloved wife and mother of his children with praises..The Tombawala singer noted that Zuena had put up with a lot in the last 15 years but remained strong taking very good care of their children, below is his full post;
"You only breath to thank ALLAH for the gift of a wife, friend, supporter and a person who believed in you when no one did, trusted you when no one did. With her kind of beauty, one can easily forget that inside her is a golden heart, one that I have come to appreciate as years draw by."
"Men can be successful but without such a woman behind you, your success can easily be misunderstood hence meaningless. For 15 years she has seen a lot that a woman can see but stayed strong, mostly stayed home to raise our kids, and took a weep on my behalf as judgement was passed by many."
"Seeing my wife pick up an award for me, simple but elegantly dressed with a smile on her face makes me wake up today and say thank you Allah for the gift of my wife. I want to pick up her award too one day when she wins the BEST CAKE made in Uganda because trust me, this woman has a shocking side in cake making. And I know she will win..."
Bebe Cool's video, DEDE, took the award of 'Best Fashionable music video in the just concluded Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards and Zuena represented him fully..

Zuena Kirema is also in charge of their rental apartments.
Latest info reaching us is that Bebe Cool's wife has added yet another one, a store for kids clothes located on the first floor of Village Mall in Bugolobi. Mother's Dream is the name of the shop and it caters for children up to the age of fifteen.
At the time of opening, adults were treated to a glass of wine while kids walked away with a gift box that was specifically packed with sweets and other goodies by their one and only princess, Beata.
"Expectant mothers and parents, spare a few minutes today(Nov26) and pass by MOTHER'S DREAM Village Mall Bugolobi 1st floor. It's fully stocked with children's clothes,shoes etc," Bebe Cool informed his over 400,000 followers on facebook.
Meanwhile, plans for his Tondeka Ekiwatule show are in high gear, you must have listened to his latest tunes, it just confirms he is versatile. English, Swahili, love songs, traditional are all on point and he can rock any genre..

Pictures speak a thousand words..This particular pic was taken during day and it's revealing a lot that is normally concealed in the club pics that the couple normally share while showing off some PDA. Bebe Cool is seen striking a pose with a yet to be identified babe, they look happy together but when with Zuena, it's like business as usual.
The 'Ki Ekiganye' singer looked buried in deep thought while with the mother of his four children but when the other babe came around, the Ndisa Buti star pulled out his best smile and swagg gear as the two posed for the camera. It's even said that he had to wipe some Maganjo posho off his apron lest it spoils the pic..
This forced others to ask why he looked not bothered with Zuena and yet very happy with other babes?
The couple was part of the guests that participated at the Ready, Steady, Cook Off competition that was held at Kabria Country Club, proceeds from the event went towards renovating a disability home in Mukono.

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...

Bebe Cool's wife has turned 30 and as expected, Bebe was the first one to shower her with praises.
"You have been a special person in my life, I was created with a missing piece and until I met you, so I was completed.

"With the help of my mother, u have made me a better person and more so I admire my self with you than without you. Thanks for loving me coz you described the true meaning of love and now I pray you live to blow 100 more candles."
"Happy birthday my baby gal, Zuena," Bebe Cool wrote.
At 30, Zuena is blessed with four children, 3 sons (Alpha, Caysan, Deen) and 1 daughter, Beatta. She is the CEO of Zuena Pastries, has rentals, drives a Merc C-200, tried singing and she has 2 songs to her name including a collab with the 'Kiwoko' boys.
Zuena was once the host of NTV Life Stories on NTV but resigned her job to get ready for the arrival of baby Deen.
One fan had this message to Bebe Cool;
"Everyone post praising his/her love eeeee! wish words could speak,they would have said we are tired please,rather try actions, make your love memorable than exciting the audience yet sad inside you,I mean do more actions than words,introduce her before her soup expires.."
Birthday Kiss in progress @ Liquid Silk

Bebe Cool and Zuena were some of the guests who attended Mimi Semakula's birthday bash at an exclusive hang out in town. Mimi is Tuff B's girlfriend and an air hostess with Qatar airways, she is so close to the Ssali's as revealed in the messages.
"You are one of the most amazing people I have ever met, you're a true friend and always there with me through thick and thin, please don't change ever. A very happy birthday to you my darling friend turned sister, love you," Zuena wrote.
"Special friends deserve special treatment. Happy birthday soja and may Allah grant you more years," Bebe Cool added.
However, during the event, Bebe Cool could not hide his feelings as he spent most of the time looking into Zuena's eyes. The mom of four was clad in this black bra-less outfit that gave an ample view of her center folds. Zuena returned the love with the look of the; 'The man of my life.'
Notable among those who attended the party were comedian Patrick Idringi aka Salvador, basketball star Flavia Oketcho and Josephine Karungi's hubby, Vince Musisi.

The last one year has seen Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema, having to deal with the pregnancy and subsequent birth of their fourth child, she travelled to the US in July 2015 and in November last year, Zuena gave birth to baby Deen Ozil Ssali, they were back in the country just in time for Christmas.
However, at the time Bebe Cool was so busy with the Tubonga Nawe campaigns that have actually paid off big time as seen from the CLS 350 Merc, the latest addition to his fleet. The campaigns are done and Zuena can now leave baby Deen at home for them to enjoy each other's company.
It's been a year since these two last had such moments as he explains;
"Last night out with my wife after a year of a woman not partying, I even respect you more than I did before. looking hot as ever."
The mom of four was clad in a black micro skirt and white top attracting these words from Bebe Cool; "Looking hot as ever..." Isn't that sweet!!
"Had a great night with you my love," Bebe Cool added. Over the weekend, Bebe Cool was a guest speaker on the Dembe FM Talk N Talk show and among others he revealed how he cheated on his wife but confessed that he will never do it again, she forgave him.
Bebe and Zuena have been together for fourteen years, with a break of nine months when Zuena packed her bags and went back to Jinja but if that could not break them, nothing will.
Saturday, March 12 2016
This Saturday, Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool, 38, was a guest on the 90.4 Dembe FM Talk N Talk show hosted by Kasuku. The 2-hour-show had an extra hour added to accommodate the various views, it was held at Bat Valley Theatre.
Bebe Cool addressed a number of issues that included his personal life, his music and the Tubonga Nawe aspect among others. Bebe Cool came under fire for being arrogant but his response was that he is always speaking facts and facts are bitter. This is what I told Zuena after she had left me; "I slept with her [the other girl] but I will never do it again," she forgave me and came back to my life.
Bebe Cool went on to say that much as his father was a minister, he grew up through hardships as he was staying with his mom who wasn't that well off.
Asked about the 400M President Museveni gave the artistes, Bebe Cool who was dishing out 50K notes to whoever impressed him said that over 50 artistes were lent that money through the Uganda Musicians Circle 2 and he has the proof of whoever borrowed that money because he recorded them.
Then on the Tubonga Nawe money, Bebe Cool explained that he got the lion's share because he is bigger than them all.
During the 1ON1 segment that required a Yes or No answer, the Love you everyday singer confirmed the following;
It's true I have police escorts. The Easter Monday show at Kiwatule this year won't take place as we've been making losses in the last nine years.
It was earlier believed that the reason the show won't take place was because most fans won't show up because of the FDC move to boycott the Tubonga Nawe artistes.
One lady, while responding to Bebe Cool as to why they did not walk out when they played his music and Chameleone's related it to a child who steals will not be shunned by his/her parents forever, yes the parents are hurt so it will be temporary, so it's the same with the fans and artists at the moment, Bebe Cool gave her 50k for that and went on his knees to thank the fans.

"I decided to take the kids to my village over the weekend to meet their aunts, uncles, grandparents & great grandparents. It was an amazing trip & they didn't want to leave,"Zuena noted on her social network portfolios.
Nyamata means place of milk and in the pic, Alpha and Beatta are seen trying out their newly acquired skill, milking a cow while Caysan plays with mummy's hair. Baby Ozil and Zuena seem to enjoy each other's company.
Back home, Zuena's hubby and star singer, Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool is busy promoting his forthcoming concert under the hashtag #LOB5816 which is the same as Life of Bebe Cool slated for Aug 5, 2016.
Meanwhile, Zuena's hubby, Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool is tipped to eat big in the times to come after being so active in the NRM campaigns in the last three months, but for now, his security has been beefed up just in case.
Wednesday, February 24 2016
Before communicating his concert dates, he wrote this;
"As we settle in from the political times that have shaken a lot of unprepared minds, I would like to caution my fellow Ugandans about putting aside our political differences and work together toward reconciliation and continued steady progress of our personal lives and our nation..."
One fan wrote: "We have already had enough of you during the campaigns. Give us a break of at least 5 years before you show your face to the fans again.."
"Let me even send you a friend request," The Kamwako singer replied promptly.
Another told him to be neutral like Bobi Wine but Bebe Cool wondered if this particular fan knew the meaning of neutral. The concert will be held at Kampala Serena hotel and a table will be going for Shs5M/- while others will have to part with 100,00/-

My husband has suffered...
Bebe Cool's wife, ZUENA Kirema, has come out appealing to all to give her hubby a break. For starters, Bebe Cool has been on the President's campaign trail for the last several months and just a few days back, he bagged over shs500m for his efforts in the Tubonga Nawe project.
He has already started on his other house and in just a few months or weeks, his apartments will also be on the market for rentals. Bebe Cool has always had a reason for literally everything, when the President did not participate in the first televised presidential debate, Bebe Cool was like; "He did not have to as the majority of Ugandans don't know English!"
Of course, that and very many statements that he posts on his wall have led to a lot of talk, something that Zuena is now highlighting and demanding that her husband should be accorded his due respect.
"My husband has suffered, when he performs for the President, they say he's begging for money, when he buys a new car, it's tax payers money."
"When he pays over Shs30m for a medical bill, you say that he should have built and when he builds, you all go yapping; It's our money and when he gives construction a break, you claim he's run broke."
"When he speaks his mind, you call him arrogant, my fellow citizens let's learn how to give respect where it's due."
She concluded; "As for you my love continue with the Golden heart, the few who know you will slowly appreciate..I know you don't like being showered with praises but allow me to do this just this once, let's concentrate on raising our children."
Monday, January 25 2016
Bebe Cool and Zuena have been together for fourteen years and in his message, the Love You Everyday singer notes that it's not been a smooth run. The dread locked singer adds that he may not be the best Zuena would have loved but he's the father to the five kids and he is sure Zuena has no regrets.
"Today, me and my wife make 14 years since we met, it's been a journey of ups and downs, thick and thin, good and bad. I must thank Allah for the wife I have in a friend like you. I may not be the best man you would have loved to have but am the best father to 5 kids you don't regret mothering. Thank you for being the person you are to me and many people and may Allah grant you your prayers."
"Am lucky to have met you, Love You," he concluded.
One of his followers had this message for Bebe Cool;
You are a family example. You made a public notice when she had a quit, And yes you had a public sympathy that pushed her back into your life. You got a tight relationship despite the challenges. I wish you a happy fourteenth holly matrimony anniversary Bebe Cool Akiiki

The mom of four went to the US to give birth to her fourth child, Deen Ozil Ssali who made a month five days back. "Home sweet home, the excitement of meeting baby Deen is on another level..am not allowed to carry him anymore," Zuena wrote.
Allan, Alpha and Beata were in Uganda with their dad, Bebe Cool while Caysan was taking good care of mom and baby Deen in the US, so you can excuse them for now as they all seem to be pretty excited on meeting a new member of the family.
Bebe Cool is joined by other family members as they bond with baby Deen. On this day last month, which was exactly five days after giving birth to baby Deen, Zuena was missing her boo and she could not wait to be home, but now, the party can begin.
Meanwhile, when Bebe Cool looked closely at baby Deen, he was able to relate with some features prompting these words; "Deen is my son. YES."
However, with the presidential elections due in February 2016, Bebe Cool is very busy with the Tubonga Nawe campaigns, so baby Deen will still not see much of his daddy until then.
Thursday, November 19 2015
Zuena's hubby, Bebe Cool, has taken a break from the NRM campaigns to head to South Africa for a video shoot of his latest collaboration song, Killin It. The Tubonga Nawe singer left this morning.
Bebe did Killin It with South African rapper, Missy Patty Monroe. Zuena was among those that wished him a safe flight. Baby Deen Ozil who is still in the US where he was born made a week yesterday, Bebe Cool is yet to see him.
The audio for Killin It was released not long back and has been doing well on the airwaves across Africa. "Music and success is my life, what's yours! ..See you soon," Bebe Captioned the pics.

No Time Wasting: Mama Ozil gave birth to their fourth born five days back but looks like the waiting has been too long, she wants to get to her 53x life back on track as quickly as possible, she can't wait to be on the next plane back home..
"Missing my boo," she tweeted with a sad emoticon..Her close pals were quick to let her know that Bebe Cool should be missing her too though very busy with the Tubonga Nawe campaigns...
However, Caysan has been taking good care for mom during the time she was pregnant he is now very good company to baby Deen Ozil who is five days old.
"Our new bundle of joy is here..Baby DEEN OZIL SSALI, born on 11/11/15 weighing 9.9 pounds. I would like to thank everyone that has stood with me throughout this pregnancy..the prayers, physical and emotional support, I can't thank you enough."
"Bebe Cool, there goes another soccer player..thank you for always being there for us ,we love you & are blessed to have you.All thanks and prayers go to Allah," Zuena noted.
Thursday, November 12 2015
Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema, has given birth to a baby boy and the baby daddy, Bebe Cool is more than excited. "It's a boy for me and my beautiful wife. Thanks to you Allah. Thank you all for the prayers, it's another soccer player," Bebe noted.
"A happy strong focused sure mother of 4 now. I will love you everyday baby Deen, you're welcome to this world," Bebe Cool added. Bebe Cool is busy with the Tubonga Nawe project so he was not by Zuena's side in the US where she gave birth this morning.
Bebe Cool's mom has been taking good care of her though.
Just yesterday, Barbie and Bobi Wine unveiled their fourth born Shine Suubi Nakayi to the public for the first time in three months, she is the brand ambassador for 7 Days International, a diapers company. Zari did the same and with Zuena and Bebe not revealing Ozil's face, they could be looking at a sinilar plan.
Friday, November 06 2015
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.
Friday, November 06 2015
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...
Tuesday, October 20 2015
Away from the 'yellow dinner' that was, the Gagamel camp is all excited as they patiently wait for Bebe Cool and Zuena's fourth child.
"Isn't she beautiful? Expecting a new member of our family soon, may Allah protect you two," Bebe Cool wrote while sharing his wife's pregnant pics in a long creme outfit that accentuated her curves.
Mama Cay as she is fondly referred to in her circles is in her final weeks of pregnancy and making the best of her time by lovely shots among others.
Showing off her figure, the former NTV Life Stories host is seen feeling and staring at the bump as the end of the pregnancy approaches. "True representation of African beauty, a strong mother of 4, men please take care of your baby mamas," Bebe Cool added.

Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema, was yesterday celebrating another year of love and laughter with the Love You Everyday singer, but it's actually supposed to be 13 years of togetherness if their past celebrations are anything to go by, is she borrowing a leaf from Desire Luzinda!
In her message she writes;
"Today marks exactly 12yrs ever since we exchanged vows & said I do at Crane Chambers,our simple ceremony was witnessed by a few relatives and friends & after exchanging our vows I remember getting out of the building only to be welcomed by a little rain & I remember Mr. Kaweesa Richard telling us this rain is a signal of God's blessing in your marriage."
"12 yrs down the road & we've been blessed with 3 wonderful children expecting baby no.4, you still treat me like we just met yesterday...am truly blessed to have you in my life & I pray to Allah for many more blessed years together my love. I love Musa Ssali (Bebe Cool)," she concluded.
In 2013, the Ssal's were celebrating 11 years which by default makes it 13 this year, but if Desire can celebrate her 25TH birthday three times in a row, Zuena could be justified.
This was their message three years back:
"Today me & ma luv make 11yrs since we met & still goin strong, I thank God for where we r now & pray for many more years to come ahead of us. luv u Musa & thx for bein a great dad.."
Bebe Tweeted back: " It's been 11 years of loving u, knowing u, making you smile n cry, kissing u, touching u, making love to u, making babies with u, papers with u, and a life with u that has made a lot of meaning to me."
Sunday, August 23 2015
Bebe Cool has responded to the Lisa Mandy saga which has left him stressed over the weekend, he was actually forced to cancel his upcountry shows apparently over the same saga.
In his message, Bebe Cool has promised to release two cameras showing how celebrities suffer at the hands of women seeking attention and cheap fame.
"Today I am going to do the unthinkable and release two videos from two security cameras thanks to Liquid Silk security and management to show the world how celebrities can be harassed and taken advantage of by women seeking attention and cheap fame."
"This comes after an old lady claimed on social media that I approached her and poured a drink in her face. Ladies, I do respect women that's why I have one if not the best in my house as a wife. But it's so disappointing to see a woman not respecting her self but seeking respect from others," Bebe Cool wrote.
Meanwhile, away from the Liquid Silk drama, one asked; "You are just giving birth yet the house is not complete, so where will you keep them, in that small house?" "On the roof," Zuena replied.

Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema is in the US, she went to give birth to her fourth child and Lisa Mandy seems to be aware of those developments. On Friday night, she met Bebe Cool at Liquid Silk in Bugolobi and knowing very well that his wife was not around, she knew it was now or never.
Without wasting time, the curvy ex-model and now a Finland based nurse put her arm around Bebe Cool's waist but he politely told her to back off now that they were not that close, Lisa insisted on what Bebe is terming as 'pulling down my pants', it was then that the Ndisa Butti star splashed the vodka drink in her face.
At the time, Lisa was with socialite Judith Heard who says, "Bebe Cool should apologize, it does not matter who provoked first."
Lisa Mandy who says she has reported the matter to police added that she cannot love Bebe Cool.."Of all men...I can't move out with Bebe Cool, If I didn't do it when I was sixteen why now?"
Eye Witness Account:
Flirsh Flavia: - "I was standing next to Moses Bebecool Ssali Question: who in their right mind (after writing all the insults you do) would come and hold someone on his waist with a huge smile to say hello!!!Bebe's reply to you was "genda, va wano" you insisted to call his name and try talk things out.. And how did kenzo come into your story... The reason for the drink in your hair was not knowing when to back off.. His words were "leave my wife out of your drama" Bebecool is the artist, Zuena Kirema his wife, why insult his family!! Your a woman, when you respect yourself,respect is given back to you. . Bebe needed you out of his sight because he didn't want to lay a hand on you (and he didnt).. Two bouncers politely asked you to leave and you declined after 15mins of you still standing right next to Bebe, they did their jobs and threw you out. (The drinks on our table were a bottle of blue label and a bottle of jameson) The govnor saga is brought in again, imagine how much you would have avoided by just walking away... better still just don't approach to say hello to someone you clearly despise.."P/s : Am only stating the truth about what happened."

A one Lisa Mandy has come out branding Bebe Cool al sorts of names after the Go Mama singer allegedly poured on her a drink she describes smelly and cheap.
"Last night me and my girls, Judith Heard,Candy Kardesh and Atafo went to Liquid Silk. As I moved around the club, I came across an old acquaintance Jenkins, while I was still talking to him, Bebe Cool came and confronted me that I betrayed him when I congratulated Eddy Kenzo upon winning the BET award."
She continued: "He had a drink in a glass (smelt like a mixture of cheap vodka and coke), the bastard shockingly threw his drink in my face...I was all engulfed in the smelly vodka."
"Bebe Cool continued throwing insults at us. Surprisingly all bouncers were rallying behind him. We were thrown out of Liquid Silk. This incident threw me back to the Johnnie saga in Guvnor, I suppose if I had my boyfriend with me, something similar could have happened."
"Your pride comes when you engage an alcohol compromised small girl like me. You are no body but a mere pussy.Trying to bring Zuena Kirema in every fight claiming she is better than me dude really?"
Bebe Cool's response:
"She came pulling on my pants and I told her off, she insisted until I pushed her off GENTLY . She must have thought I'm those lousy donkeys she fools with. I have no problem with someone who does not like me provided they don't come around me, simple."
"Lisa, Bebe can't attack someone for congratulating the other. Sometime back, you abused Bebe Cool on a post that I personally liked. Last night, he told you to leave him alone but you did not oblige, he is human and stop judging him as an angel. I rarely come out to support my husband on social media, but damn some things need to be cleared. I'm sure you are trying to to clear the air about what happened but please be straight on this one."
"It is saddening when I see a man beat up a woman over nothing. It is not only heartbreaking but also an act of backwardness. A man in his right senses has no reason whatsoever to beat up a woman unless its their daughter and only on disciplinary grounds can that be tolerated. Educate a man and educate a generation. Together let’s stand up against women violence."
Liquid Silk is yet to respond to this, preferably with CCTV evidence.

Ex Life Stories host, Justine Nameere is due to give birth to her first child. Amazingly, even Zuena Kirema who took on the role of Life Stories host is also expecting her fourth child with hubby, Bebe Cool.
"Thanks to God for giving me the energy and strength. I have worked throughout my pregnancy; school; field; meetings; travel; comfortably..... but now am worried. I hope things don't just happen when I'm in public.... hehehe."
The above statement just confirms that the count down is on...Justine joins other pregnant mom's that are due to give birth or expecting like Barbie Kyagulanyi, Jackie Obsessions, Empress and Zari Hassan Dangote.
"When you reach 38 weeks make sure u have packed all de necessary things and move around with them together with your hospital folder if they give one in Uganda and don't forget to breathe through the contractions.." a close pal advised.
When her first pregnant shot leaked in May, folks were asking who the lucky guy was but Justine just told them to keep watching that space, they will eventually get to know.

Zuena is in the US where she will be giving birth to her fourth child with Bebe Cool and while there, she is having very good company of Caysan, their third born who is doubling as a 'personal doctor'.
Caysan is seen with a stethoscope checking on his pregnant mom. Caysan was born on Mother's day in 2012, exactly three months after Daniella gave birth to her fourth child. Right now, Zuena and Barbie are both expecting their baby number 4s.
It's amazing how the wives of the top three artistes are trying to outdo each other on who has more kids, but for now, Barbie and Zuena are trying to catch up with Chameleone's wife, Daniella Atim.

The MTV MAMA 2015 video of the year nominee, Bebe Cool, has revealed the name of his yet-to-be born baby as Deen. Bebe Cool and Zuena are already blessed with three children and the fourth one is on the way.
Alpha (11), Beata (8), and Caysan (4), are Zuena's three children with Bebe Cool, the baby on the way will be Zuena's fourth and Bebe Cool's fifth. Allan Byamukama Ssali is Bebe Cool's eldest son from an earlier relationship, he is an adult and also into music going by the stage name, Allan Hendrik.
Beata, the only girl is wishing the baby on the way is a girl, but then again, should it turn out that it's a boy, then she should be given the chance to name him and her name option is DEEN. Alpha is also wishing it's a boy so that the Gagamel football team has more players in the times to come, he has also proposed Ozil as the name.
It's now a matter of a time to see who wins between Deen and Ozil, otherwise, Bebe Cool is convinced that the MTV MAMA award for the Video of the Year is his based on his true story that he share on his wall;
Why Bebe Cool is not in a hurry to finish his house..
"Every time my wife gets pregnant, all sorts of good things happen to me.With the love of ALLAH, and the support I have from East Africa mostly my home country Uganda, the first ever biggest MTV award is coming home insha Allah. Some one may ask why not finish the house? and I will say it's just not my choice neither my worry at this time."
"Let's wait and see and may Allah take you through safely my wife," Bebe Cool concluded.
"Awwww I got tears in my eyes I love you Moses Bebe Cool Ssali ...can't ask Allah for more I'll keep thanking him for my family everyday of my life, baby D is on way."

Just as we were getting to terms with Anita Fabiola's sudden exit at NTV, Zuena Kirema has thrown in the towel to focus on her fourth pregnancy. Bebe Cool who fully supports her says that staying on the same job for too long is boring and after all, I can pay her monthly salary weekly.
"It's been an interesting journey for two years working at NTV with a great team of management, producers, cameramen and fellow presenters but my journey has come to an end and I would like to thank God for the good friends I made and experience I got, unfortunately on Sunday you will be watching my last show as Life Stories presenter as I have to concentrate on unavoidable family issues. I thank you all for being a great audience, it was a great experience presenting to you, and may Allah keep you safe."
Zuena replaced Justine Nameere who by now should be putting her manifesto together for a parliamentary seat in the 2016 elections, and oh yes, the shoes were too big for her but she tried considering that she was thrown in the deep end with little or lack of experience for a TV host.
"It is not that the job was her life, and she was not there for money, but she was there for experience. Now things have changed, she is expecting and cannot put up with those long hours shooting and traveling," Bebe Cool added.
Just like her predecessor, Zuena has also been on the show for just two years..She will now concentrate on her pastries business and being Bebe Cool's wife. On her CV, she has been an artist with two songs to her name and also a TV host and now that she was not in it for money she can relax at home while her boo does the hustling..

Ex-NTV news anchor, Rosemary Nankabirwa, who has been battling with a debilitating cancer disease for some time now was yesterday evening transferred to Aga Khan hospital in Kenya. The chartered flight landed at Wilson airport in Kenya at about 5:00pm.
Hundreds of people including law makers, religious leaders, journalists, artists and comedians among others turned up at Serena Conference parking to wash and also have their cars washed at 50,000/- per car to raise funds for Nankabirwa's medication costs. The fundraising was a successful event.
The car wash at Serena Hotel raised shs 33.2/- million and on adding the 60m that had earlier been collected from different sources, the figure shot to 93m, slightly below the required amount.
President Museveni also contributed shs 5M/- to the #HelpRosemary cancer fund.
"We need a better health care, Rosemary is very lucky she is known to many, what of those other Ugandans that have no one that knows them or have no one that can do such an activity to raise for them money... " Mohammed Nsereko, the Kampala Central MP said.
Mama Nalweyiso of The Deception drama series and socialite Judith Heard were part of the team doing the car washing..

Good Friday it was for the Ssali's...
Yesterday, Bebe Cool's wife celebrated yet another year, she turned 29. In his message, Bebe Cool thanked Zuena's parents for having given birth to such a beauty.
"Women are many but I chose one, I'm lucky because when I was choosing, you were ready to accept. I want to thank your mum and dad for the special job they did to create you for me and bring you up as such a great woman. Happy birthday my darling, best friend, wife and mother to my angels," Bebe Cool noted on his wall.
Some of his fans were quick to correct him; "Happy birthdayday, however, her good parents produced her and not created her, creation is by God only."
The birthday gal and her baby daddy are planning on a belated birthday bash that will see them treat Gagamel fans, friends and family to a sumptuous feast including delicacies from Zuena pastries.
Zuena thanked all for the birthday messages.

Zuena, is now the proud owner of a Mercedes Benz C200.
This came as a valentine's gift from her hubby, Bebe Cool who thanked her for being their for him. On January 25, 2015 the couple was celebrating 13 years of being together ans since Valentine's day was around the corner, Bebe decided to unveil the "small gift" on the day for lovers.
"A small gift for a special person u r ZUENA in our life, thanks for loving, trusting, caring and looking after our lovely family. From me and the kids, " Bebe wrote.
Zuena has been driving an Opa but has now graduated to a Merc. The couple was celebrating their valentine's day at Liquid Silk in Bugolobi.

Bebe Cool's latest track, 'Everywhere I Go' was this morning playing on MTV Base.
"Oh she fell for the man..who will love her to the end, She fell for the man..who loves and understands her, She fell for the man....That man is me yeahhh.." Is part of the chorus in Bebe's track off his 2015 Go Mama album.
Just like the flow of the lyrics, Zuena who fell for the man who understands her was so excited as she confirms in this instagram post;
"Bebe Cool's Everywhere I Go video going everywhere... as some people are busy bad mouthing it, it's busy breaking through the international scene, God is great. Everywhere I Go video has officially started playing on MTV Base...enjoy and don't forget to share..."
The video was shot and produced from South Africa by God Father productions, but unlike 'Love You Everyday', this one was bashed from all corners. The audio is top notch but the video was average going by the several comments that were made on the video.
Bobi Wine was one of them..The video is on the same standard with the locally produced videos and paying all that money tantamount to being conned.

Yesterday, Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema Ssali made a post on Instagram revealing her complex background. The former NTV Life Stories host noted that though proudly Ugandan, she is a mixture of Muhororo from Ntungamo, Tutsi from Nyamata (Rwanda), Arab from Oman and Swahili from Tanzania."
Now this appears to be more complex than Zari who has roots from Burundi, Somalia and India. As expected many wondered why she was not referring to Jinja where she hails from, in fact, one wondered why she was not talking about the Busoga bit;
"No I'm not a Musoga, I just spent my entire childhood in Jinja (Busoga)", Zuena clarified.

"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.

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.

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!

GAGAMEL CEO Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool and wife, Zuena Kirema Ssali, are already in South Africa for performances this weekend. Bebe will this Saturday perform live at Club Luli Luli in Pretoria and on Sunday, the 'Love you everyday' singer will be in Johannesburg for the Big Brother Hotshots live eviction show.
Stella Nantubwe "Ellah" is the only Ugandan housemate left in the Big Brother house after Esther Akankwasa got evicted in the early weeks of the show. Interestingly, Bebe Cool threw his weight behind Ellah when the two UG housemates were up for eviction so, will Ellah survive this one? Tune in on channel 197/8 on DSTV to find out which housemates make it to the finals.
If Ellah survives this week, she will be a finalist becoming the second housemate after Sharon O to be that close to winning the Big Brother grand prize.

Zuena's close pals have been urged to treat their maids well to ensure they do not turn against them. Housemaids can mean to be a nuisance at times if their supervisors treat them inhumanely. In the end, it's the children who suffer the brutality from the disgruntled maids.
The advice comes after Zuena's maid of six years took some days off leaving her to do all the home chores before rushing to compile her NTV Life Stories. Bebe Cool is then left to take care of their two-year-old, Caysan, but Zuena is worried he could be starving, so she calls her hubby to establish how they are getting on.
The Love You Everyday star just changed the topic and asked if she (Zuena) was well. This left the mom of three worried that her little boy had not had a meal, but later consoled herself by saying; "Anyway, I trust him when it comes to feeding and taking care of the kids."
Zuena's full post; "
"This is what happens when the maid goes to the village for a short while.I prepare the kids and take them to school as usual,then rush back home to do a few chores before heading to work & let the baby spend the day with daddy.at around 1pm,daddy Cay sends me pics of them swimming so i get curious & ask him if the baby has had lunch? then he changes the topic & asks me mbu honey oli bulungi? Lol kyoka daddy Cay oba omwana yalide lunch simanyi but i trust him when it comes to feeding & taking care of kids."
"Anyway we have to appreciate our maids coz they play a big role in our lives,treat her like your own sister, the way she's treated is the same way she'll treat you & your children.Celebrating 61/2 years with my maid."

Behind every successful man is a woman and Zuena Kirema Ssali, is the woman in Bebe Cool's life. On learning that his wife was fully behind him in the post that had him bashed all over social networks, he had some sweet words for her;
"11 years ago we exchanged vows AND said I do, we also did the Islamic Nika. Like any other marriage we have our ups & downs but most importantly we respect, care & love each other. I never knew the meaning of love until I met you Zuena...."
Below are the respective posts when Bebe Cool wrote banning some fans from his concerts if at all it turned out that those allegations were correct.

His birthday celebration was held at Amnesia on (2.Sep) and from the pics, it's evident, this was the best birthday celebration ever. When it comes to celebrating his birthday, Bebe Cool has one simple detail he likes to keep and that is the Zuena kiss.
Zuena did not disappoint like it has always been the case, the couple kissed all the way while promising to love each other everyday. The birthday boy did perform for his guests. Bebe's birthday was conciding with Zuena's first anniversary as host of Life Stories on NTV.
Meanwhile, his first born, Allan Byamukama Ssali going by his stage name Allan Hendrik looks to be following in the footsteps of his dad. He has released his first single dubbed 'Bundu' though his voice is similar to that of his mentor, Bebe Cool.

Bebe Cool and Zuena are back after thrilling fans in Dubai. Zuena is pretty excited. She took to her wall to thank fans there.
"Ugandans in Dubai, thanks so much for the hospitality, love & support you showed me & Bebe the few days we spent with you. We are really grateful & can't thank you enough...We are back home safe & hope to see you again soon. God bless you all."
While in Dubai, Zuena and hubby went on a shopping spree only to come across BEBE, a top store for women's fashion clothing. The mom of three did not waste a second in taking a shot right in front of the store with a name just like her hubby.
Meanwhile, the latest from sources close to the couple indicate that Zuena is expecting her fourth and Bebe's fifth child.

Bebe Cool was yesterday performing at the Mansion Club Melia Hotel Bur Dubai. The highlight of the show was when his dear wife, Zuena Kirema joined him on stage. The love you everyday singer loved every move Zue pulled as she did the 'paka chini' style.
This is the very place Moze Radio and Weasel were last week. The fans loved every bit as Bebe Cool unleashed his old and new hits. Promoter Balaam was among those that attended. Iryn Namubiru will be performing next in this very venue on the 11-Oct-2014.

We all remember when Daniella went out of her way to beat up a scribe, well that was long sorted and over 100k was paid in damages. At this rate, Isaac Katende aka Kasuku might get another beating this time from Zuena for bursting her bubble.
Zuena reveals her breakfast plans;
"I had planned to wake up & make boo heavy breakfast before he starts running around to make sure all is set for tonight, but to my surprise he was planning the same for me, before my alarm went off, he woke me up to this.Thanks boo. Let's all meet at Serena tonight for The best of Bebe Cool concert, please keep time."
Now, that is by all means a good gesture more so from a lovely wife, Bebe deserved even better than this bearing in mind that he has to do wonders tonight.
90.4 Dembe FM's Kasuku and Bebe Cool were also taking breakfast in the Serena Hotel lobby as Kasuku explains; "Me and my producer Robert had breakfast with Bebe Cool this morning after our radio interview with him."
So many questions not enough answers! How easy is it for Zuena to prepare breakfast at Serena Hotel if they have checked in days before the performance tonight, or was the breakfast delivered to Zuena at their home?
Assuming that isn't that, then one thing is clear, Zuena had breakfast in bed delivered from Serena or it's by coincidence that the Serena plates are exactly the same with the plates at Bebe Cool's.
All roads lead to Serena Hotel tonight for the Best of Bebe Cool Concert, otherwise branded as the Byafaayo concert.

Entebbe - Kampala highway is a busy road on a good Sunday with heavy flow of traffic to the beaches in and around Entebbe. The vehicles are moving at relatively heavy speeds with some making their way to Entebbe International Airport. Three quarters of these vehicles drive back to Kampala.
Last Sunday, Bebe Cool and his lovely wife, Zuena Kirema were part of the motorists from Entebbe to Kampala, and along the way, a drunko as Bebe puts it made a U-turn forcing the Nkola-Byafayo singer to control the H2 Hummer they were in just to save the man. There is a slight damage to the Hummer car.
Bebe Cool took to his facebook page to update his fans on the bad news. "Me n Wiffy in a car accident on Ebz road, drunko made a u turn but we safe n sound. THANKS TO ALLAH."
It's not the first time that Zuena and Hubby are getting accidents. In 2010, just a few months after he (Bebe) was shot in the legs, they were involved in a nasty accident along Gulu-Kampala highway. Zuena sustained serious injuries on her forehead and since then, she uses makeup to coverup the scar or better still, choose a forehead hairstyle.
Last year, another drunk fellow cruising an Ipsum almost rammed into the Big Size Hummer around Theatre LaBonita while Zuena was driving.

Bebe Cool is selling like a hot cake on TV's and Radio stations following his remarks on Uganda music being played more often compared to foreign artistes.
NTV hosted him on Friday and just yesterday, 93.3 KFM also hosted him answering a number of queries in the process. Among them was the age of his dear wife, Zuena Kirema who became older by another year on Thursday.
Bebe Cool said that Zuena is 28. The couple recently celebrated 12 years of love, implying that Bebe Cool met her when she was 16. The issue of Zuena's age is just as controversial as Desire Luzinda's. Bebe Cool met Zuena on the night she contested for Miss Uganda in the year 2001.
Did Zuena contest for the pageant when she was below 18 or Bebe lied about his wife's age last night?. Meanwhile, Zuena is grateful for the surprise birthday bash that was held at Forest Mall based V-Pub.
"First came dinner, then the surprise birthday party...a big thank you to all those that made this possible, you just blew me off never expected it," Zuena wrote.

The 'Owa Boda' singer, NTV Life Stories host, Zuena Kirema has turned 27 on April 03! Bebe Cool's wife has shared a 'keep calm It's my birthday' image on her wall.
The mom of three continues to receive birthday wishes from friends and relatives but none of them beats Bebe Cool's message.
''Happy birthday my lovely wife and mama to my babies, you are a special friend and you have been there through thick and thin, many admire your looks while I admire your heart, your smile lights up my darkness, I'm stronger when I'm with you, I wish Allah blesses you with all that you have prayed for, may you live to blow a million candles. I love you my wife Zuena," Bebe Cool wrote.

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

With Valentine's day fast approaching, scenes like these will be the order of the day as lovers try to say 'I Love You' in various ways.
Bebe Cool is one type of lover who will not hesitate to do a PDA - that's a public displays of affection once the feeling to show Zuena just how much he loves her strikes.
And, he never runs out of ideas. If he's not grabbing his significant other by surprise, he will be thinking out of the box with his teeth or his very latest, a simple kiss on the thigh that took Zue by surprise. With these unique ways of saying the three magical words, it's not surprising to see that just a few days back, the couple was celebrating 12 years of being in love.
The Gagamel CEO might get away with some of those unacceptable PDA's, but, that does not mean that you treat your lover to Bebe's PDAs and if you do, then proceed with caution.

"12 years ago, I met this handsome dread locked singer at Crane Chambers, most of my friends said where am I taking this 'muyaye' because of his standing dread locks then, but I instead stuck with him because of love."
Zuena adds that having been in love with Bebe Cool for that long, she has turned out to be a love consultant (Ssenga) busy advising others on how to keep a man for over a decade.
"..and my friends are instead proud of me and I'm now like their Senga, we have cried and laughed together and are proud parents of three and I must say, we are going stronger than ever, I love you my superman."
When this got to Bebe, he reciprocated the love: "Through thick and thin, ups and downs, in love with my queen and today we make 12 years, can't ait for my wedding day because I have to wed this lady. Congs wify, good job done one me. Behind every successful man, there is a strong woman, kwatilawo tosulaaaaa "
Saturday, January 25 2014
During that time, Bebe Cool came up with an instant hit dubbed 'Agenze' in which he was confirming to his fans that indeed Zuena had dumped him. These things happen in love. The couple rekindled their love after nine months and since then, they've only been growing stronger.
Just recently, Bebe Cool introduced to the media his 18-year-old son he fathered from an earlier relationship, but somehow, this did not bother Zuena that much after being assured that she was the one 'in things' after all. In the month of September 2013, Zuena started off with her latest job as NTV Life stories host after spending so many years without a job.
Meanwhile, the latest news from Bebe Cool's camp is his participation in the Tusker Twende Kazi reality TV show that will see him carry a Tusker bottle to London with other well known personalities.

Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema has revealed her new year's resolution.
"This year, I want Allah to lead my way, I want to do the undoable, I want to reach for my goals, I want to be a better WIFE, mother, daughter, sister, friend, TV presenter and baker."
The busy mom of three literally wants to be better at everything which is common for most people around this time of the year, but what caught our attention was the message for her critics.
"But above all, I want to silence my critics and I know with God nothing is impossible, so help me God." Being the NTV Life Stories host, Zuena expects some people out there to criticise her show like they have done anyway, but she has managed to pull through.
Just recently, a Monitor journalist, Connie Nankya, criticised her show but Zuena's hubby, Bebe Cool, dealt with her 'personally'.

Bebe Cool's first born, Alpha Thierry Ssali has turned 10 today. Zuena is so happy as she reveals in her message communicating the good news.
"On this day 10years ago, I gave birth to my 1st born, motherhood was new to me and I was very young, but this angel of mine came out with love and we immediately bonded that I forgot the outside world, how time flies. I'm also in shock you've brought joy into our lives. I love you Alpha Thierry Talik Ssali. Happy 10th birthday love."
In her message, Zuena seems to be in shock that her own child has brought them that much happiness and joy, was it supposed to be otherwise now that she gave birth at such a tender age.
Alpha has grown into a young happy little man and not small any more. A few days back, he was the emcee at the Kids end of year party that was held at Kololo Airstrip.

This year has been quite a blessing for Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema and she is not hiding it if the last post on her wall is anything to go by.
"I'm a happy woman, Allah, Thanks for listening to my prayers." Like the saying goes, behind every successful man, there is a woman and Zuena is the woman in Bebe Cool's life. Zuena is justified to celebrate. In September, she kicked off with her latest TV job at NTV following several years of being a house wife.
With Zuena Pastries receiving so many cake orders at this time of the year, being on the payroll of one of the top paying TV stations and now, hubby is shs300m richer! what more can one ask for other than being thankful to her God.
Meanwhile, after the judgement, Bebe Cool said that he was not happy with the amount because it was way below compared to what he spent on medical bills. Bebe added that he won't appeal the decision as he is not prepared to rotate in courts.

The Super Star Green X-mas party was held on Sunday at Kololo Airstrip. Parents spent quality time with their kids as they had fun playing all day long. There were camel and horse rides, bouncing castles, water slides plus lots of entertainment. Kid-friendly restaurants were all over and of course lots of fizzy drinks. The weather was good for the water games.
Zuku TV provided free video games, Toto magazines were on the house for those who felt like reading though, they were obstructed by crying kids who had got lost from their parents. There was a Zoo section that was manned by officials from Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC).
In the zoo, you could find a lioness, leopard, ostrich plus a rare species of a monkey among others. The kids who were daring had photo sessions with a huge python, of course with the help of the UWEC officials. On stage, Bebe Cool's son, Alpha was the MC and occasionally pulling rare strokes as 'Kokodiosis' played in the background.
NTV Life Stories host, Zuena Kirema had a stall selling cakes from her Zuena Pastries as Judith Heard and her twin daughters' were seated in the same tent. Later on, Zuena and JH together with their kids joined Alpha on stage with a huge cake from Zuena pastries that was served to the kids.
Meanwhile, a host of other holiday makers were busy taking photos seated or stepping on Judith Heard's Bentley or the 'Big Size' Hummer2 that Zuena came driving. Bebe Cool was busy with Talent XP, so he could not make it. Coco Finger was one of the entertainers for the show.

Ever since Zuena kicked off with her latest job as NTV Life Stories host, there has been growing criticism, both negative and positive from a section of viewers.
But lately, many have come to her defence including her hubby, Bebe Cool Ssali who did not have kind words for a one Connie Nankya, a former Publicist for the collapsed Pioneer Easy Bus and a journalist with the Monitor newspaper.
"Today, I will comment about my wife's Life Stories TV show following a very unfair article from Connie Nankya which seems to be personal.'' Bebe Cool is so bitter with the writer for choosing to attack the person of Zuena than criticising the show. A case in point is when she brings up the issue of how Zuena responded to questions from the beauty pageant panelists way back in 2001.
It should be noted that Connie Nankya and Zuena were contestants in the same beauty pageant, and both were among the top five, but Zuena has come out 'bigger and better'. Bebe Cool is of the view that this is the reason behind the 'unfair article'.
In a wall post that had 88 shares, 755 likes and 822 comments in just the first one hour, Bebe Cool unleashes his wrath on Connie by letting her know of how Zuena is way better than her; armed with two jobs, three kids, a husband compared to her who used to drink stagger and pass out.
"Keep off my wife because if you were better than her, you should have been doing Life Stories," Bebe Cool concluded with his post that has left many on his side for coming to the rescue of his wife but also insisting that, he should get someone to manage his facebook profile.
Bebe Cool spotted Zuena on the night of the pageant in 2001 where she was a runner-up. At the time, she was in her S.4 vacation. In 2003, she conceived their first born, Alfa. On Sept 22, 2003, when Zuena was six months pregnant, Bebe Cool called her at the Registrar's office for their civil wedding.
On the other hand, Connie Nankya is a Mass Communication graduate from Uganda Christian University (UCU), which she defended recently over the s3x tapes, wondering why the UCU name was more pronounced than the three students who committed the act.

It's that time of the year when streets of Kampala will be painted yellow all in the name of the now popular sport, MTN Marathon.
Kiprotich is a true story with two gold medals (World and Olympic marathons) tagged to his name implying that we now have increased numbers of people trying to emulate the gold medalist.
This Sunday, thousands will be running for water in this years' MTN 2013 Marathon. Bebe Cool is terming this as the last charity event by the Gagamel this year, so, he's calling up all the Gagamel fans to join the race and see him beat thousands to the finishing line.
"All Gagamel fan's n friends let's all register for the MTN Marathon, let's all do our last charity on this. I promise, I Bebe Cool will be among the first one thousand people among the twenty thousand plus participants. Let's run for water, Let's run for our lives."
Meanwhile, Chameleone would have loved to participate but due to his sprained foot, he might only end up performing and cheering the athletes.
This Sunday, an estimated 20,000 athletes will be taking part in the 42, 21 and 10km race. This year, a new route for the half marathon runners has been designed.
Saturday, November 09 2013
The free party was a celebration of the Gagamel page reaching the 100,000 fan mark. This called for a mega celebration and that was the business at Club Amnesia last night. Unfortunately, the venue was too small to accommodate large groups. Bebe Cool fans were clad in 100% Bebe Cool regalia as they danced to his tunes from the 'Bafudde' days to 'Coccidiosis'.
To commemorate this day, Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema also the NTV Life Stories host made some finger lickin cakes which the fans enjoyed. Most of these fans, had to honour Bebe Cool's invitation because they are so loyal to the point that when BEBE makes a post, they hang on to the page for up to three hours just to see comments that come up.
The facebook page made the 100,000 fan mark on (Sep 24) but the celebration was yesteday, the very day Bobi Wine was holding his Akalimu-Charity concert featuring Mr. G, however, it was equally flooded with revellers now that it was free provided one came with something to donate to the Bududa Landslides and Kasese Flood Victims.
Meanwhile, Bebe Cool has added his voice to clear the space on rumours that were doing rounds about the Battle of Champions being cancelled.
"To our fans who are ready for the Battle, I wish to reassure you that the Battle of Champions between me and the Goodlyfe is still on. There is a letter that was forged by the organisers of 'Buzzy' Signal saying that police has cancelled the Battle for security reasons but having spoken to the top bosses, Kayihura and Kawesi, they have no idea about it."
Just get ready for the Battle because Police cannot cancel a local show over an artist from abroad.

Then came the 'Kokodiosis' song. Trust him, he did not spare Chameleone on this one as he taunted him about being evicted from a house he had earlier claimed was his. The 'Kamwako' singer then went for Bobi Wine whom he referred to as 'Kadingo' whose old Escalade and boat were constantly breaking down.
Meanwhile, No one enjoyed the show more than Zuena Kirema. The mom of three kept on pulling rear strokes to every song that Bebe did. Matters were made worse when she nearly fainted after Bebe told revellers that he will be marrying her next month. Zuena and Bebe Cool are in a civil marriage.
The pressure has always been on to have a star-studded function. Chameleone and Bobi Wine held weddings that were twice as nice. The couple has been together for 12 years now, though in 2009, Zue walked out on him for 9 months citing infidelity. They have three children, 2 boys and 1 girl. Bebe Cool has an 18-year-old son from an earlier relationship.

When word first broke out that Zuena had replaced Justine Nameere who had resigned, most fans of the show were like - will she manage! But at exactly 5pm on Sept 8, recordings of Zuena interviewing a disabled girl who had given birth to disabled children were on channel 283 for those on DSTV.
She was fluent and in fact one would easily think that it was not her first time, she did it like an experienced TV host. One reason could have been that it was a recorded version and therefore easy to deal with what might have gone wrong before the final version, but anyway, this was just the first show, and so far so good.
It reminded us of how Robin Kisti was just starting, you could tell it was her first time but with time, she got her grip on the screen and even danced 'NTV Kyakabi' and as they say, the rest is history.
These were some of the messages from the viewers that included her young sister, Mimi Kirema saying: "So proud of my sister, looking good on NTV and on point for a first timer! love it and may Allah bless you as you keep inspiring others."
More posts from the viewers:
Meanwhile, Justine Nameere has since scrapped the Life Stories show off her most liked TV shows leaving 'Katemba Mu Kooti', 'NTV Men' plus other foreign shows that include The Oprah show and VH1's single ladies among others.
Wednesday, September 04 2013
Bebe Cool was appearing on NTV The Beat this evening and he had quite a lot to tell the program host, Douglas Lwanga.
Kokodiosis Explained - Kokodiosis - Is a song that was meant to return fire to some people who are interested in wasting my time talking about how long it has taken to complete my house. If an artiste spends the whole year singing about me, I was forced to look for a name of a disease that I can relate to.
Collabo With RDX - The last time the Bend Over guys were in K-City, Bebe Cool did a Bend Over remix with them but it has since not been released. Bebe Cool says that he will only release it after they have fine tuned it to levels far better than 'Blessings' by Peter Miles Ft DeMarco. "I don't believe too much in collabos. I like the way Peter Miles has done it."
Bobi Wine's Collabo With Mr.G - Hmm well Bobi Wine did his best. He is a popular artist in Kampala doing a collabo with a dance-hall artiste. Before you do a collabo, you need to look at the artiste you are partnering with, that's why I say, Peter Miles and DeMarco were a perfect match.
Zuena's Music Career - It did not work out so she is now a house wife, business lady and a TV presenter.
Bebe's Take on the BET Nominees - BET is just a function but you can't compare it to me who performed at Mandela's birthday. Mandela is a very important person. However, it was good for them as the first Ugandans to be nominated in the BET Awards, but I have several Kora's, Channel O's and MOBO Awards.
The Kokodiosis Launch - This is organised by Bebe Cool personally. There will be 8 entrances so you should not expect delays and fights at the entrances. Security is guaranteed, so should you see red tops all over Lugogo, don't worry because it will be for your safety. The VIPs won't have to mix with the generals be it in terms of the bar or convenience points.
Zuena as Life Stories Host - Ladies and Gentlemen this is Bebe Cool 'Ba Wa' Zuena, It's been years my wife has not been employed for long and she is now working with NTV as the host of Life Stories. If you have a story, please call the numbers on your screen and she will be coming at your location.
Battle of the Champions - Yes the talks are on and the boys(Goodlyfe) have done well this year but if the organisers can put my Shs200Mn on the table, I will go on stage.
REMA VS BEBE COOL - Rema has a better voice than me and for the 11 years I have worked with her, my vision for her was different. I expected her to feature on the likes of Channel O and not to perform at weddings in Kyaliwajala. Kokodiosis launch is this Friday at ''Kayadondo'' Rugby grounds.
Sunday, September 01 2013
"When I was a young girl, I made a prayer to the almighty to send someone to take care of me and love me till no end. You're the answer to my childhood prayer and all I can do is thank Allah for the gift in you and he gives you many more years." The mom of Bebe Cool's three children concluded:
"You're not just my husband, your my best friend, Happy Birthday Sweet Heart." Last Thursday, the 26-year-old confirmed to whoever cared to know again that she was the new host of NTV's Life Stories that airs every Sunday starting at 5pm. In fact one of her followers on twitter demanded to know why she was not on air last Sunday; and her response was: "I start today (Sept 01)."
However, this Sunday, many of her fans were glued on telly waiting to see just how she rolls her thing but it was the usual voice with no-name in the background that has been taking care of business since Justine left.
Wednesday, August 14 2013
Mr.G aka Goofy has called for calm in the wake of Bobi Wine paying him to do the Clean and Out collaboration.
This got to Bobi Wine who did not waste any time in telling the Kokodiosis singer off: "The bad mind is making you age so fast." Bad news travels like wildfire, so somehow, Mr. G got wind of this and very quickly intervened to rescue the situation. Mr. Swaggerific said that all talk that he was paid to do the 'Clean and Out' collaboration hit was hogwash.
"People of Uganda this is Mr. G aka Goofy, let me clear the air this bull about Bobi Wine paying me money to record with me is nothing but crap, why is it when one of our brothers tries to move to the next level there is nothing but hatred coming from his fellow artiste and the supporters of that artiste.
Jamaica's Mr. G concluded: "It is very sad in my eyes to see this going on, My African brothers and sisters lets join together to make this unity amongst the two countries a success everywhere in the world, the song has already started hitting in Jamaica, Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, let us be our brothers keeper, One Love until we meet again," Mr. G.
The said post does not appear on Bebe Cool's wall and for some reason, he has not come out to clear the space. However, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Zuena stood by Bebe Cool through this post: "Some things just leave me laughing, Mbu, Bebe Cool said this and that about so and so...These fb pages are trying to sell by writing ill about my hubby, but they won't manage because at the end of it all, God is in control." Watch this space!

Appearing on 93.3 KFM last Saturday during the Dance Party Show that was running from 8pm to 1am, Bebe Cool revealed to the listeners that the Serena based NTV had identified something unique in his wife Zuena Kirema and that she will soon be hosting a show that deals with trends, real life stories and family issues.
Zuena has not been seen on TV before though she has been a part of Bebe Cool's Gagamel Crew with some songs to her name like 'Owa Boda' and 'Mata' which she did with Eighton and Rain, formerly of the Gagamel Crew. According to Bebe Cool's description, Life Stories, a show that is aired on Sunday evenings is what Zuena is likely to take replacing Justine Nameere who decided to resign using facebook.
Bebe Cool further went on to reveal how his wife's business has moved on from just baking cakes to a Sabavulu of sorts. Her company now hires out chairs and tents plus bridal cars. This means that if you want a Hummer to be part of your bridal fleet, you could give it a try after bridal cars became part of the services under 'Zuena Pastries'
Meanwhile, Abdu Wasike's KFM Dance Party Show playlist had tracks like: 18&Over by Bakri, 'Nakupenda Pia' by Wyre and Jamaica's Alaine, 'Obudde' by Goodlyfe and 'Clean n Out' by Bobi Wine among others.

The Gagamel boss and singer Bebe Cool real name Moses Ssali has quit smoking and drinking. The 'Coccidiosis' singer announced the good news yesterday on his wall to over 80,000 fans. The 'Tomalira Budde' singer was advised by his ear, nose and throat doctor, otherwise known as an ENT.
"No more Shisha, alcohol for me and this has come at the right time when its Ramadan and I've always been trying to stop drinking." In his message, Bebe Cool admits that he's been trying to quit the habit but all in vain. However, this seems like having come at the wrong time bearing in mind its the month of Ramadan, so some of his fans think after August 7, Bebe Cool could resume taking his favourite drinks and pipe smoking.
Bebe Cool's quitting booze and the pipe is certainly bad news to some members of the Gagamel Crew and others within his circles that have been hanging out with him. "So for all my friends who have been drinking with me, embrace a new Rasta."
Seconds within making this post, congratulatory messages followed though some were comparing this to a cheap way of advertising his Coccidiosis album launch that will be held in the first week of September, 2013.
On a rather sad note, Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema Ssali is in hospital after their last born, Caysan Ssali Siye was diagnosed with a mild skin irritation.
Tuesday, July 09 2013
Last year, Zuena added cake baking to her CV through her Zuena Pastries and the business has since been growing. Today, while enjoying her milk shake and sponge cake at CafeJavas, Bebe Cool's boo just took a little piece of the sponge cake and within seconds, she noticed that the cakes she bakes at Zuena Pastries in Ntinda are far better than the ones at CafeJavas.
"Comparing notes but I must admit my cakes are way tastier, no bragging." Now if Zuena's words are anything to go by, her phone should be buzzing by now with people placing orders for standard cakes and Ramadhan festival cookies.
During McKenzie's birthday last month, Zuena was seen feeding him with a piece of a birthday cake that she made from Zuena Pastries but from the look on the birthday boy's face, you can tell that the cakes are yummy.

Last Saturday was another great night for revellers at the Namugongo top hang-out joint as Bebe Cool and wife, Zuena Kirema mixed tots as they served guests.
Beer guzzling fans were seen making several rounds to the counter just to get the opportunity of being served by none other than Zuena who did her thing under the close supervision of the 'Coccidiosis' singer.
Some fans who included foreign based Uganda Cranes stars were heard saying that if these two were the bartenders for the spot, it would be one of the best places to hangout in town. This was the first theme night dubbed ''Star-Tender'' which will see stars taking over the bar as the bartender's for the night.
Half of the proceeds that night were donated to 40-40, an orphanage in Kyebando the following day. Bebe Cool and some of the directors for the bar were seen delivering items and having photo moments with the kids.
Tuesday, May 14 2013
On reaching home, the couple normally settles to count their days' earnings. Initially Zuena thought it was a different currency, but on looking closely, some of the 'paper notes' were not money but chits with phone numbers and love notes from different babes.
According to Zuena, this has got to alarming levels that she had to share it on her wall: "Ehhh gals of these days can 'dry' themselves instead of putting money in a musician's pocket while on stage they put love notes & their phone numbers bambi they don't know that we read them together & laugh off with my Bebe Cool hihihihihi."
Zuena is contemplating forwarding the details to the Abanonya program should this continue. When an artiste is performing, gals are fond of walking to them and stuffing tips in their pockets, but what shocked Zuena, the love notes were more than the money.
Saturday, March 09 2013
Former model and Gagamel first lady Zuena Kirema is in the news again over what tabloids are referring to as a hole in her lingerie that looked like her intimates were on full display. The mom of three has been quick to clear the space through her wall and this is her response.
"Red pepper for your information tht's not a hole in my pant thts a flower on black material, I can't bend tht low temunkuba naku yamwe." This was on the night of the Tsup Swag themed night at Club Rouge which had Bebe Cool as the featured artiste of the month.
This black dress with a yellow belt exposed her superb cleavage and curves. This was followed by a number of posts with some saying that as a mother of three, she should not be dressing like she is 16, but Zue did not buy any of that.
"I care less abt people's negative comments & insults am busy with people & things that make me happy, If you don't do stupid things when you're still young you'll have nothing to smile abt wen u grow old so am gonna live my life, ain't nobody telling me wat to do."
I think with those words, Zue has summed it up, I'm gonna be me.
Friday, March 08 2013
Singer Bebe Cool has wished Zuena a happy Women's Day and thanked her for having made him the son his mom was only dreaming of. The 'Obuvunanyizibwa' singer went ahead to thank Zue for being a good mom to his babies (Alpha, Beata and Caysan).
"Happy Womens Day my wife, mom, and sisterz. Zuena U have made me turn into a son my mum dreamz of. Thanks for being a good mum to ma babies."
Bebe Cool, Zuena and Caysan were in South Africa last week for the Miss South Africa beauty pageant. Meanwhile, the star has taken to selling high hoodies and T-shirts to his over 70,000 fans on facebook with each going for 30k. His fans in Mbarara, Mbale and Tororo are already demanding for the T-shirts.

Zuena was in the company of the Gagamel manager Tick Tah who went with her to pick Bebe's two awards that included: Aritste of the year and Best Reggae Artiste. Bobi Wine and Chameleone got one award each.
As Owa Boda singer left Theatre Labonita a few minutes past mid-night (Feb10), she encountered a nasty road experience that has still left her in shock several hours later.
One drunk fellow behind a wheel that looked like a Toyota Ipsum drove recklessly almost ramming into the Big Size Hummer leaving Zuena screaming for her life. They managed to control the monster ride to the side.
Zuena is now nursing stomach upsets which she strongly attributes to the shock she suffered.
Monday, January 28 2013
Zuena was the first to express her love: "Today me & ma luv make 11yrs since we met & still goin strong, I thank God for where we r now & pray for many more years to come ahead of us. luv u Musa & thx for bein a great dad.."
Bebe Tweeted back: " It's been 11 years of loving u, knowing u, making you smile n cry, kissing u, touching u, making love to u, making babies with u, papers with u, and a life with u that has made a lot of meaning to me.
25 Jan is a special day for us when we met and I pray that Allah keeps u, me and the kids safe and together for the rest of our lives. Zuena thanks for being ma wife and a good mother to my kids. Its' not simple but you have done eleven years and I kindly request u to even get stronger in this home koz of challenges of life. Allah bless u my wife."
Last Saturday, Bebe Cool was Ras B Ssali's best man but as he did the rehearsals, he noted that he will be doing the same with Zuena Kirema any time soon. Bebe and Zue have three kids together, 2 boys(Alpha, Caysan) and one daughter(Beata).
Friday, October 19 2012
In a message off her wall this Wednesday; "Zuena Pastries Now Open", she has already received orders for birthday cakes slated for next month. While responding to one who was asking how much the cakes cost, Zuena said that it depends on the size.
"They have different shapes and sizes, so they vary, we can meet and I show you the pics so you choose from there." Zuena Cool told a customer who expressed interest in cakes made by her.
A month back she told us how the 4-bedroomed house in Kigoowa will be ready for tenants to occupy so if not finalized by now, the works at the site should be in the final stages.
Talk of the power of facebook. This is coming at the time when Bebe Cool is celebrating over 60,000 fans on facebook and he's hoping to make 100,000 in another two months. We only wonder how that works out if its taken three years to make 60,000 fans how do you add 40,000 in two months.
No Doubt Bebe Cool beats all the Ugandans in the range of 5-figure facebook followers trailed by Juliana at 43,945. In his message to celebrate the 60k facebook likes, he said that: "We are the biggest in East Africa, if not East and Central..." and we are saying that just next door, Wahu Kagwi, a Kenyan artiste and wife to David Mathege aka Nameless has 74,456 facebook likes helllo...!

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

Zuena says that she's finalizing with the painting and the house will be ready in a months time. She concludes by saying 'Ndisa Butti Sipapa' similar to slow but sure. Appearing on WBS Tv Monday Night Live show, Bebe said that he could have completed his house had it not been the Shs90m that he has sunk in his various charity activities.
Chances are the 4-bed roomed talk has been sparked by Daniella Villas which Chameleone constructed for his wife, Daniella. Zuena has now brought out the Kigoowa house as a way of containing the Villas.
Recently Zuena told her fans that: "Ladies & gentlemen with all due respect plz stop comparing me with other musicians wives, we're very different in terms of background, age, tribe, sense of fashion, likes and dislikes..the only thing we have in common is being married to a musician yes MARRIED. thank you in advance"
Zuena is now showing how different she is from the other musicians' wives.
Wednesday, August 15 2012
Yesterday, we told of how Bebe Cool attacked his 'neighbours' in which one failed to perform at the Olympics and the other bought a canoe and was yet to start fishing at Busabala Beach.
Fans assured him to leave fellow singers alone as he was contradicting messages in his very own tracks like Minzani and Kamwako among others. Bebe was also told that he is good but Chameleone is by far and large better than him in music and could not even measure up to Bobi's assets.
This did not go down well with Zuena(Bebe's wife) who started unfriending all those who were talking ill of the 'Akamwako' star. Some of Zuena's friends who had been scrapped off that title had started complaining.
Zuena wondered: "Abange if you dislike my husband or his music & I unfriend you, why do you fuss, behind every successful man there is a supporting woman." Bebe Cool did not waste any time in responding to his wife:
"Hhahaha Luv wange, vakundinga ezo. tebamanyi gwebalumba, njakubaezo embuuzi" translated as"My love leave them as they don't know who they are dealing with, I will beat those goats"
Meanwhile, Bobi Wine's wife Barbie Itungo is busy promoting Bobi Wine's latest track 'Obuvuka' with a theme of you reap what you sow and posting more boat pictures while Chameloene's wife Daniella Atim is busy taking care of the kids.

If you attended the Black Gal party last year when Bad Black was celebrating her 22nd Birthday at Club Rouge you should have noticed how booze was flowing endlessly and one did not have to part with a penny to access the venue.
Bad Black was even chauffered in a Black limousine, her gal brigade that included Hamida with whom they have had a nasty fight a few days back were all clad in black skimpy outfits entertaining revellers but tonight, it will be the Bikini VS Bahamas house party as Black celebrates her birthday.
Babes clad in bikini wear and see through costumes will be all over, so you don't need to carry your camera.

Zuena Kirema is one of the happiest mom's on mother's day after giving birth to a bouncing baby boy three months after Chameleone got his third child. Bebe Cool who had a show in Dubai could not hide his joy.
"I would like to thank all those who have seen my family through the seven months of Alpha's eye problem and being there for Zuena till today when she finally delivered a baby boy safely." Bebe Cool noted on his wall.

Early in the week in Nairobi, a cheating couple was stuck together for hours up to a time when the cheating man agreed to pay a compensation to the tune of Kshs 20,000 approximately Ugx 600,000 then a pastor said a prayer and the two were separated.
The man was later seen heading to a near by ATM machine to withdraw the money. Mrz Biggz a close friend to Zuena and her sister Mimi Kirema shared the video of the cheating couple.
After watching the clip, Zuena had this to say: "OMG that's really embarrassing, I really feel sorry for the lady all she did was cry poor thing. I'm sure the man is gonna turn to God coz he didn't believe the miracle."
"Mimi and Shamim, Mukama abakwatireko because you are the single ones here." Zuena added. Zuena is currently heavy in Boston.

On January 25, Bebe wrote on his wall: "Today me and my wife made 10 years in luv. I want to thank u Zuena for loving me through thick and thin unconditionally and for giving me those angel like babies, who have helped in making me who I am today.
It hurts am not with you physically but I'm with you whole heartedly for life, irreplaceable a woman u r. May Allah grant you all your wishes ma luv. Luv U."
Today, Zuena who says there's a baby on the way and not twins wrote this in response to Bebe's: "Ten years ago, I met this dread locked singer, we made our funny vows not knowing we'll make it this far though many people didn't approve our relationship we never listened and went ahead.
25 Jan, we made 10 years together with 2 kids and 1 on the way still happily going strong with the protection & love of Allah. Bebe Cool I know it's been a bumpy journey with tears & laughter along the way let's continue with our together forever vow. I luv you ma crazy hubby..."
Zuena surely nailed it. The couple split in 2008 and to this Bebe released 'Agenze' a blockbuster hit confirming the split. They made up after a year of not being together physically.
They have two kids Alpha Thierry and Beata.. Now Bebe Cool is looking for a boys name starting with C and it's for moslems. Aziz Azion responded by saying he was moslem but did not know any moslem name that starts with C for boys.

Zuena will join the other famous mothers of twins like former close buddy Karitas Karisimbi and Judith Heard. Bebe Cool has worked very hard to ensure the kids are safely delivered from a prestigious hospital in the US.
This will make the kids American citizens by default just like those of city socialite Karitas.

Singer Bebe Cool's wife Zuena Kirema could not hide her excitement when the doctor's report about Alpha Thierry's eye condition revealed that he was out of danger. "Allah yo so great, the optician jst did a scan on ma son's eye and the results were gud, the eye is intact & recovering well." Zuena wrote on her wall.
About two weeks back, Bebe Cool wrote on his wall communicating the bad news of his son who had got an accident on his eye with a toy gun that was bought from Quality Supermarket in Kampala.
The latest news should get the Minzani star jumping higher well knowing that his son won't be blind after all like he had thought.

Zuena, Barbie and Daniella are wives to the big names in the music industry but then again, Zuena has decided to put on Bebe's shoes by joining the music industry as the other two take care of the kids and their husbands.
The last time we heard of Zuena was when she performed during the Black Gal party at Club Rouge a few weeks back but that was just that. Daniella was at Garden City Rooftop at the Zari Mid-Fiesta party where Chameleone performed.
Barbie has been making headlines in the past weeks courtesy of their wedding that will be held soon and now the gigantic Bobi Wine tattoo on her back. In fact Barbie's tattoo was the main headline of the New Vision yesterday.
This quickly sent Zuena into fast thinking only to reveal this on her wall; "I'm fed up of people asking me my tribe, here we go, my mum is half Tanzanian and half Arab from Oman and my Dad is half Munyankole from Rukungiri and half Tutsi from Rwanda. There we have it."
This even made matters worse because the very question she thought she was answering was not answered at the end of it all. It is not clear why she is disassociating herself from her Busoga roots.

Zuena has just released her second track 'Owa Boda' which is likely to do very well on the charts in the next few weeks. In the song, you clearly see Zuena's music potential beginning to unfold.
A few weeks Bebe made a posting on his wall which did not go down well with his fans because they retaliated like a Tsunami in response to his posting and of course Zuena was in the background watching the events unfold and learnt a thing or two. The lesson she leant was to be very careful with what you post on your wall.
Making a post before getting your facts right is one thing but realizing that the posting is bad and you have to deal with the situation in a manner which is civil is the other. Kampala was swept with a wave of pre-ticked votes in favor of mayoral candidate Peter Sematimba and had been stuffed in ballot boxes.
These complaints were registered at the National Library, Bat Vallley and National Theatre forcing the Electoral Commission to swing into action and the next thing we heard was, Kampala Mayoral Polls Cancelled.
This was at about 1:00pm and of course a number of people across the city were in the queue's waiting to cast their votes while others were making their way to the respective polling stations. So it was clear a section of people did not have a clue the poll had been cancelled and therefore postponed to a future date that was to be communicated by the EC.
Zuena was clad in some attire that left many gazing at her as opposed to monitoring the poll, she reached out for her iPAD and noticed that of the latest messages she had, one was saying the elections had been cancelled.
She straight away responded to the message and said, "Whoever hasn't voted please go and vote for your mayor, people are being lied to that the elections have been postponed due to Sema stealing votes so as to confuse voters, those are lies"
This attracted an outburst from a section of her followers but notable among them was Sembatya Hakim who started off by abusing Zuena branding her a thief. Zuena wrote back in a polite manner, "@ Hakim u don't need to use that language here, we're all concerned citizens"
One Robert Rubi wrote, "Guyz don't be hard on Zuena, she was mis informed so give her a break" This is when Zuena closed this thread and wrote: "I think this chapter is closed" and left the rest to utter whatever they chose to say on the matter.
It is at this point that Bad Black Zuena's latest friend came in to her rescue and started unleashing all sorts of verbal diarrhea to Hakim who by now had coiled his tail in between his legs. The words she used cannot appear on these pages.
For the record, Bad Black is Meddie Sentogo's Ex girl friend quoting tabloid reports. Bad Black and Zuena were last seen at Kololo Airstrip during the last NRM rally.

Its amazing how days move so fast but we have another 365 days behind us and below we take you through the popular stories of 2010.
Desire Given a Run for Her Money - It all started when Desire went to the UK for her birthday party a few months back and being a celeb she is, fans were posing with her for photo shoots and one of them happened to be Julie Kaka. Julie was doing very well as that black outfit did some justice to her. She however looks different while donning white fitting clothes.
Desire Vs Zari - Now this one is about Desire but this time being compared with Zari as it turned out the two loved posing for the camera but as the comparison went on, it touched on their music, dressing, and to some extent their private lives but it was the most popular before the Julie/Desire bit over took.
Big Momma Treat at PAM Awards - This actually happened on Nov 6 during the PAM Awards where Straka was one of the MCs during the award giving ceremony. She had her theme which was the 'Girl Child' and she kept on running a good campaign about the girl child on matters to do with defilement, educate the girls as opposed to keeping them in the kitchen and so forth which was very okay per say. She however killed it when she tried to dress like a school girl fat as she is, tried to dance around and in the process revealing what was better off leaving back stage. This made her win various awards for clown of the year.
Bebe and Zuena at Kadic Hospital - This shocked very many. Bebe and the wife got an accident after performing up country on their way back, the Honda RVR they were travelling in got a tyre burst. Zuena sustained serious injuries as Bebe was admitted with minor injuries.
Boys Earning from the Mic - That was as simple as the statement went but it looked like some of our readers were trying to suggest that DJ Michael was not earning from the mic after being lined up with the likes of Moze, Weasel, Bebe Cool, Bobi Wine and Dr. Chameleone.
Uganda's Davis Ntare Wins Tusker Project Fame 4 - Back in Kenya it was Tusker Project Fame 4 in which Juliana Kanyomozi was one of the judges, Rachel Namubiru made it to the top and Davis Ntare who tried the TPF3 version and failed emerged the winner of Tusker Project Fame 4.
Kampala City Hit by 3 Bomb Blasts - Now this was a sad affair that left over 70 dead after the Al-shabab hit Kyadondo Rugby Club and another bar making life very difficult for parties around the city and also affecting artistes equally as trends changed there after though it has now started to pick more so with the beefed up security.
Nigeria's Uti Wins Big Brother Africa All Stars - It was yet another Big Brother though this one had no shower hour but featured previous film stars er.. big brother stars like Tatiana, Meryl, Munya but Tawana and Ofunekka were not among the stars in the All Stars version. Uganda was represented by Hannington Kutesa who lost his cool after South Africa's Lerato played games with him only to be disqualified 3 days later. At the end of the game, Nigeria's Uti who even lost his father while in the Big Brother House emerged the winner taking the USD 200,000 prize.
Bebe Cool Shot in the Nakumatt Sex Scuffle - Most of our artistes will produce very good music once provoked and if only they can borrow a leaf from the likes of R.Kelly who had just performed in Uganda a night before Bebe was shot, then our music could be at even a better level. After the R.Kelly show, Bebe retired at Effendy's but met some guys he terms as bad company so he excused himself and was moving towards Nakumatt. He met a couple in some old car and tried to intervene, the next minute he was crying for his dear life.
You Want Another Rap - Very interesting indeed because You want another Rap is a title which in most cases comes before you've listened to a rap but in this case you are bing asked You want another Rap leaving you with no choice but to say Ye Ssebo followed in that order but bearing in mind that it also came in the last quarter of the year, it was by all standards popular.

Pearl of Africa Music Awards artiste of the year, Bebe Cool has been in the US for two months and only came back on Wednesday but a day before, the Onion Tabloid in its section of "Caught in the Act" published a picture of a nude light skinned babe titled, "Bebe Cool's Wife Goes Nude"
The star was polite in his retaliation and as seen from his posting off his wall, he says: "Bullets could not stop me, Bombs could not stop me, you think putting edited pictures of my wife can do.....!"
Zuena and Bebe Cool's walls have been busy with fans advising and giving their comments. Most of them are saying the photograph has been played around with. This morning on Sanyu FM, that was the debate as to whether the problem is with the publisher or the one who chooses to go nude and pose for the cameras.
The Onion Tabloid adds, "The picture was taken in 2003, at a heated up beauty contest in Munyonyo. It's said after watching her display it all; Bebe swore to make her his lovely wife and mother to his kids."
One Mpiiso Kafumusi wrote: "Dude stop cry'n like a baby, u brought this on zuena by exposing her to the life of a star instead of keeping her like a mother to your kids. That's the price she has to pay..."

Zuena has posted a thank you message on her wall thus: "Thx yall for yo prayers,am gettin better though still dizzy & swollen bt i'll be fine.The accident was so bad bt i thank Allah am still breathing."
She says she is still dizzy and swollen but all will be fine and when asked about "Big Size" she said "He's doin fine" though one of the guys on board at the time broke his back and according to Zuena, they are praying that he gets back to his senses.
Meanwhile, Bebe Cool has rubbished the Tabloid reports about Zuena's miscarriage and and being ordered off sex for a year something he is referring to as "Wolokoso". He is now referring to himself as the Unbreakable Iron man and he says it is God and his fans to thank.

As fate would have it, Bebe Cool was shot in the wee hours of the following morning and since then, Zuena has not been able to make any postings on her facebook wall. The next posting she made was this Thursday after being visited by the President saying: "Thx to everyone who has showed me & ma husband love & support,the President H.E YOWERI KAGUTA MUSEVENI visited us tonight & we r so honoured.thx for the prayers he's improving day by day."
Zuena had clearly broken down but after being visited by the President, she got the gutts of bouncing back to her friends and keeping them posted with what the situation is at Nsambya. Bebe was seen trying out his walking crutches, a sign that he is on the verge of recovery. Meanwhile as the President checked on him, he told a few pals that Big is Big even my fellow Munene has come to check on me.
Some of Zuena's friends that are comforting her through facebook are Hemdee Kiwanuka, Judith Heard, Daphine Basiima among others. Meanwhile as for Bebe Cool's page fans continue sending messages wishing the star a quick recovery with this being the latest: "Mbu Mozey n Weaz nah bother bout Bebe shot, mbu di world turn blind eye wen Bebe beat dem.
