Pepsi, Vision Group sponsor Mun G's concert

Crown Beverages and Vision Group have come out to support Emmanuel Matovu aka Mun G in his Ondisa Bubi Sente Zange concert. It will be held at Freedom City on May 6. It's the only show with 10K and 20K for ordinary and VIP respectively. The Big Bumpa singer says that there won't be the Mukono and Entebbe shows, fans in those areas should all come to Freedom City to support the humble boy from Masaka.

The official from Vision Group said that they came out to support him because he is involved in any fights and besides that, from the various functions they have held as Vision Group, the fans like him.

Crown Beverages was also impressed with the way Mun G and Winnie Nwagi handled the Sala Pulessa promo, so when he approached them, they just had to get on board.

Over the last few years I have had my ups and downs, but the support you guys give me has never changed. I would therefore love to express my gratitude to you for always encouraging and supporting me.

I came as a humble boy from Masaka and y’all welcomed me into your ears through my music, a journey of which has given me a lot, but has also kept me humble and taught me to always give thanks.

"I will do 1 (one) live show this year, there is NO Mukono and NO Entebbe, just 1 super show on 6thMay 2017 at Freedom City. Entrance is only 10k and VIP is 20k, and everyone who enters will get a free Pepsi.."

LONGEST SERVING STUDENT? Burobuto Elected Makerere Guild Speaker

Campus Bee - Fri, 04/28/2017 - 08:57

Jothan Yamureebire Burobuto was on Thursday 27th April, 2017 unanimously reinstated as the 83rd Guild Speaker with a whooping 45 votes in a tricky race marred with slander, character assasinations and defamation.
Burobuto, who has earlier served the university in the same position while in the 81st Guild, beat off competition from close to ten other contestants.

Burobuto who was precise and clear in his speech before the voting, pointed out the two greatest tasks that present themselves to be done by the 83rd guild – voting for the university Vice Chancellor (VC) and reviewing of the report by the Visitation Committee.

92 members of the GRC took part in the voting exercise where former GRC Yosam Bagumirabingi got 19 votes, Steven Mayombwe 1 vote, Lameck Ogwal got 11, Omollo Juma Noah 3, Denis Ssekyaya 7, Frank Ludovic Ssentamu got 4, former Lumumba hall chairman Gerald Kamanah got 1 vote and Jothan Yamureebire got 45.

In the other races, Public Health GRC Brenda Wagaba was voted Deputy Speaker beating off competition from Brenda Lapobo of School of Education and Jonah Taremwa and Ireen Natukwasa become Guild Clerk and Deputy respectively too.

Burobuto, who handed over to Imran Kasujja as Guild Speaker last year has again taken over what he had handed over.
Some critics have chosen to call it reverse politics.
Call it what you deem fit but history has been written.

Burobuto was born in Bushenyi district. He went to St. Peter’s Primary School, Nsambya where he scored aggregate 6.
From primary, he went to Ntare School in Mbarara where he served as Junior House Captain of Aggrey House and scored aggregate 12 in 8 at UCE.

At Uganda Martyrs Namugongo, he offered History, Economics, Literature and Divinity even when his parents wanted him to offer sciences.
At Makerere University, he was Law School GRC in first year, Makerere Law Society (MLS) President, 81st Guild Speaker, Ag. Guild President and Guild Prime Minister before he was reinstated as the 83rd Guild Speaker.

‘Good Men are NOT Hard to Find’ – Faridah Nakazibwe

Show Biz - Fri, 04/28/2017 - 08:52

NTV Uganda presenter and news anchor Faridah Nakazibwe has some encouraging words to ladies. Through her social media pages, the ‘Mwasuze Mutya’ presenter told women that good men are not hard to find, they are there and you can get one.

“The thing is….Good Men are not easily enticed and don’t respond to all these cosmetic looks that women throw,’ she said. Below is her story on the issues;

Most women I talk to keep saying, “Good Men are hard to find.” I disagree entirely.

Good Men aren’t hard to find, they are just hard to entice and win over.

Trust me, Good Men aren’t hard to find, it is just hard to get their attention. The thing is….Good Men are not easily enticed and don’t respond to all these cosmetic looks that women throw. Don’t get me wrong here….

Such men notice such things, but they don’t make decisions to pursue a woman based on such things. So…

– wearing some tight clothes

-Showing off your Cleavage

-Winding your Behind

-Posting drama on Facebook

May get you the attention of an Ordinary Man, but they won’t land you a Man of Substance.

To attract the attention of a “Good Man”, you will have to work harder than that. How about showing off…

-your Character instead of your Cleavage

-your Brains instead of your “Behind” and

-your love for God instead of your love for Clothes.

To get the attention of a Good Man, be more STRATEGIC than BEAUTIFULL!

Good Morning My Lovely Friend’s. Don’t Miss NTV Mwasuze Mutya daily Monday to Friday 9am-11am NTV/Spark TV.

I'm in to serve, not for the money-Bobi Wine

Uganda Online - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 21:15

I'm in to serve, not for the money-Bobi Wine

Bobi Wine has revealed that he will be contesting on an Independent ticket and not FDC as it was widely believed. I'm a farmer, business person and a musician, so that alone is proof enough that I'm not going to the house for the money but to serve.

The people of Kyadondo want me as their area representative and whoever thinks I can be bought off, they are in for a big shock. If I could not be bought when I was broke is this the time to buy me off, I and the people of Kyadondo are not for sale.

Bobi Wine added that he can make a monthly salary of an MP in a month in just one show, so that goes on to confirm that I'm in this to serve my people.

It should be recalled that Bobi Wine was the only artist who opted out of the Tubonga Nawe project and has been hobnobbing with Dr. Kizza Besigye for reasons he says, they share a lot in common.

If Bobi Wine goes through, he will meet comedian Kato Lubwama in the house and probably be put on the same committee that will be charged with overseeing issues relating to their respective industries.

Ziza Bafana’s Long Awaited ‘Katonda Wa Ragga’ Video Finally Out

Chano8 - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 20:24

Uganda’s videography scene is on a serious rise and we are not wrong to say Sasha Vybz is one of the leading video directors. The music videos he has so far shot and directed speak volumes. Well, he once again did justice to another brand new video and it is none other than Ziza Bafana’s ‘Katonda Wa Ragga’.

About the Audio

Katonda Wa Ragga loosely translated as ‘Ragga god’ is a tune in which Ziza Bafana tells off the other Ragga singers and brags how he is the best in the business by calling himself a Ragga god. Lyrics like ‘Ragga nze ampoomera and ensulo za Ragga nzizudde’ Luganda for ‘I enjoy Ragga and discovered its source’ clearly explain the topic he sang about.

The Video

The 3 minutes and 25 seconds video portrays Bafana as an outcast high on ‘Ragga drug’ treated as a hard core criminal brought for punishment in an isolated ware house that looks like a prison. It starts off with a scene of a nurse pushing Ziza Bafana on a wheel chair where he is tied to although in other scenes we see him singing on a microphone with many wires swinging off to pour the rapid words out of his motor mouth.

The next shots show him singing while tied on the wheel chair although he tries to untie himself but all in vain. The viewers’ attention is then later diverted to other video vixens like the guys wearing gas masks pulling some eye catching B-Boy strokes. Bafana later joins in in a different costume and also pulls serious dance moves.

Ziza Bafana in one of the scenes in the video

In the concluding scenes, Bafana is hanged upside down which is part of his punishment before he is sat down on chair that is wired with electricity cables and surrounded by gas cylinders and guys wearing gas masks led by a ‘doctor’ wearing a white lab coat. He gives Bafana a chance to smoke a cigarette as his last wish.

After smoking and with no hope of survival, Bafana closes his eyes while releasing the smoke through his nostrils and waits for the final command from the ‘doctor’ who instructs one of the guys wearing a gas mask to switch on the gas although we are left in suspense without seeing what happened next.

Conclusion

Bafana yet again stakes his claim of being the Big fish in the Ragga pond and although accepts he is getting beef and haters for that also acknowledges his fans who adore him as the king. Sasha Vybz has tried many new ideas before and this particular one has been a new territory for him with the introduction of foreign objects and the flicker lights running all over.

Good African Coffee shops re-opened

Show Biz - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 20:08

Famous Good African Coffee shops which were closed a few days ago have been re-opened, we can confirm. The coffee shops were re-opened today.

Good African Coffee shops at Lugogo and Entebbe belonging to city businessman Andrew Rugasira were closed by the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) on Monday due to tax arrears.

The reopening follows the signing of an agreement between URA and Mr Rugasira on how to pay the arrears.

Back to business; Andrew Rugasira

The closure of the shops had sparkled off debate from the both the public and entrepreneurs saying the action was not good for coffee, the country’s leading export earner.

Experts said the closure of Good African Coffee shops could have a negative impact on the campaign to brand Uganda’s specialty coffee and its consumption but with its re-opening now, things might get back to normal.

Bigeye - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 19:38

Upcoming singer Elysha Mutebi is charting new waters after quitting singing in a band to pursue a solo music career recently.

The singer started doing music professionally in 2014 after he joined S&S band. However, after singing in the band for two years, the singer and pianist decided to quit and pursue a career as a solo artiste and is now looking to take his place in the industry.

“In 2014, I officially started doing active music after I joined a band called S&S band. And we have been performing live band music at different events and bars in town,” he revealed. “But I quit to start doing my own music and compositions late last year.”

“I draw my inspiration from everyday life and hope to make a name for myself in the local music industry,” he added.

The 24-year-old singer, who says his music is a fusion of Afrobeat and Afrojazz, released his debut single dubbed “Amio” a few weeks back.

A campus girl reveals why she engages in prostitution despite her family being rich

Campus Bee - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 19:13
Prostitution is on the rise at Uganda campuses.

A third-year student at a local university who engages in prostitution at Wandegeya has revealed that despite her coming from a well-to-do family the urge for men has pushed her to habitually engage in prostitution.

Speaking to the Campus Bee reporter, the 23-year-old lady says that she is not on the street to practice prostitution because she doesn’t have money but rather the deep-seated urge for men that she developed after losing her virginity to her campus lover who dumped her for another girl.

“Most of the time I just feel I need men. I can’t have several men on campus because I fear getting stigmatised and isolated by my friends that is why I come all the way from campus to this place to satisfy myself,” said the girl.

According to her, she has a boyfriend whom she loves but he has never known she is a prostitute. Jane, not her real name believes that her ex-boyfriend had certain supernatural powers which negatively impacted on her behaviour.

Jane said that she had never engaged in sex until she was in her second year. She further said that she comes from a Christian background and up to date she is in the university Christian union and actively participates in church activities.

In addition, she said that she had approached several men of God for help but there is no change even after being prayed for.

The girl said that the very first she started experiencing it she had a strange dream whereby several men raped her in a dream.

She added that when she misses to go out on the street, she is tormented and molested by several men in  what we’d call a sex dream.

Jane says the biggest task is informing her diabetic mother about this because she fears that by so doing it will jeoperdise her health.

Matched with our aspiration to empower young people, we have continued to deliver our creativity through digitised education. We are cognisant that education is the key to the successful transformation and development of any country; and Vodafone is proud to take the lead in this digital learning space through the launch of the JUMP Academy”, said John Ndego, Chief Executive Officer- Vodafone Uganda.

Rock Music Rules As Dj Tumz Excites Fans At Legends’ ‘Rock And Rolex’ Party

Chano8 - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 15:47

Organised by Nile Breweries’  Castle Lite Beer, the first edition of the Rock And Rolex Party brought Rock Music lovers from Kampala’s cooperate circles together at the Lugogo-based Legends Bar and Restaurant. They were treated to the very best of Rock mixes by the event’s main headliner Dj Tumz the Rock Doctor as he calls himself.

Starting off as early as 7 PM, it was a strictly Rock music event that saw attendees get warmed up by Dj Millz who played the very best of classic rock songs as they danced and sang along. Named Rock and Rolex, there was a chef to fry ‘Rolex’ (fried eggs rolled in chapati) for the revellers to eat as they sipped on their Castle Lite beers which were on a promotional price at the Extra Cold Express truck whose top was the Dj’s both as well.

The official headliner Dj Tumz took to the turn tables at 20 minutes 9 PM and continued with the rock music mixes. The fair crowd’s excitement got a little higher and this was evidenced from the ululations, dancing and the singing along by the attendees.

According to the organisers, this event will happen every last Wednesday of the week and the first edition went down successfully.

“It was pretty nice to have them good old days of Steak Out brought to life, it was just electric. DJ Tumz is a hard guy.” One of the revellers identified as Benjamin told Chano8
