Chano8 - Mon, 03/20/2017 - 12:38

Nigerian born Germany based singer Mano Ezoh is jetting into town tomorrow for a 2 day media tour. This is an gospel artist whose music has received international recognition for his spectacular work as an exceptional singer and songwriter. He has managed to spread his music all over the corners of the world including USA and Europe.

The talented singer, songwriter and producer started his career at the age of five. Even as a child, he dreamed the same dream again and again. He saw himself in the spotlight in front of a large audience. Since then he touches the hearts of people all over the world with his music and numerous live concerts with great choirs, which he instructs and directs himself. In 2011, Mano Ezoh made his dream come true and was the first to get an entry in the Guinness Book of Records with his “Greatest Gospel Choir in the World”. 

His first album, released in 2015, has achieved top ratings on radio and television, and has once again proved Mano Ezoh’s extraordinary talent. After reaching the title “Europe’s largest gospel choir,” together with various other awards in 2015 and the release of his hit album “Fly”, produced in Munich and USA, Mano Ezoh has now decided to bring his music to Africa. His first single, which has already appeared in Nigeria and Germany, is dedicated to the most important people in his life: his beloved mother. He has followed this up with another catchy tune titled Brand New Day.

With his emotional songs, each piece is special, by the exceptional artist himself and by the best producers in the world. Listening to Brand New Day, the whole song palette is as colourful and full of life. It serves all genres and meets the taste of every music lover. Mano Ezoh will be appearing on NTV The Beat hosted by Douglas Lwanga this Wednesday.

‘People will keep talking as we make our dreams come true’ – SK Mbuga

Show Biz - Mon, 03/20/2017 - 11:56

Tycoon SK Mbuga resumes office work after a week of speculation about his business dealings

Tycoon Sulaiman Kabangala Mbuga aka SK Mbuga is back to work after a week of speculation surrounding his business dealings. SK Mbaga told this website that he has been away on a business trip abroad as he continues to build his business empire.

SK Mbuga resumed office work today

The tycoon was pictured at his office today morning as he resumed his duties. He accused Ugandans of misusing social media.

“Social Media in Uganda needs to be shutdown like it is in China. People have resorted to posting all sorts of trash aimed at tarnishing those working hard to achieve their dreams. I advise Ugandans to get down to  work rather than wasting time on social media posting false news about those working to achieve their dreams,” SK Mbuga said.

“Those who said we were arrested are ashamed because we are here, Uganda needs people who work, that’s when we will get out of this poverty mess other than talking of falsehood only,” he added.

Mbuga has struck a lucrative business deal with fellow tycoon Jack Pemba. Mbuga posted the picture of the two together after the deal was sealed with words “Deal done”.

“Let us get back to work. People will keep talking as we are making our dreams come true,” SK Mbuga posted as he resumed his office duties today.

In a related development, the tycoon is setting up a state of the art office block in Kizungu, Makindye. The construction works on the building have already started and once complete, it will be the best in the area and one of the best in Kampala.

RIP; AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi

Meanwhile the tycoon has described the fallen Police Spokesperson AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi as a brother to him. “I will surely miss him, he was like a brother to me, Uganda has truly lost a dedicated servant who loved his job and will truly be missed by the entire nation,” SK Mbuga said. “Every moment in life is a step towards death, RIP my hommie,” SK Mbuga posted.

After several years, there seems to be another hit song from the west. Gen Van Allan’s new song Kyanunu is making rounds on city stations and could be headed to being a top song in the country.

MCM! MAK’s Xavier Nsereko, the hopeless romantic

Campus Bee - Mon, 03/20/2017 - 09:14

“My biggest weakness is pretty girls,” says Xavier. Finally, someone comes out and says it, beauty makes the world go around. Don’t care about that inside beauty people are always mumbling about, physical beauty is all people care about.

Xavier Francis Nsereko is a well mannered, loved by all type of guy, at least that’s what I have heard. He loves life, loves love and expresses himself mostly through emotion. Emotionally engaged men are irresistible, they aren’t afraid to speak with and through their hearts, hence being honest.

Xavier like any young adult wants to get rich or die trying. He wants to have a comfortable life and why not, if you are putting in the work then you should be rewarded! He’s currently juggling lectures at MUK and working at Urban Logistics Uganda. His life’s motivation is being number one at everything he’s passionate about and not apologizing for it. He also gains satisfaction from lending a hand where he’s needed. Knowing he can play part in someone’s happiness drives most of his actions. Awww, I know right!

This dude has an adrenaline rush kind of bucket list, from scuba diving to bungee jumping, he’s fantasies involve him hurting himself one way or the other and loving it. Another item on his bucket list is marrying the love of his life, a girl that he’s already currently seeing. I know, why put up a crush that’s off the market? Unavailable is cute if he’s being a man about it, professing his love like some Shakespear character in those boring plays, epic. Lucky girl, your man claiming you despite the temptation of thirsty girls around school, good for you.

“Tweeting while taking a bubble bath with beer” Xavier’s guilty pleasure. That’s okay, boys too have skin; rough skin but skin either way, so wanting to soak your body for an extra glow is no harm. Fuzzy socks, those that go all the way to the knees, yep he’s into that as well, lucky you’re cute cause….

So you know all there is to know about the charmer Xavier Francis Nsereko. He’s the ultimate charmer with a good heart, a refined spirit, a romantic, and a lover of water filled with bubbles. Awesome.

PRAU mourns fallen Police Mouth Piece, Kaweesi

Show Biz - Mon, 03/20/2017 - 09:07

Kaweesi will be laid to rest in Lwengo this Tuesday

Public Relations practitioners and communication specialists not only in Uganda but across East have mourned the fallen Police Spokesperson AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi. Kaweesi was gunned down on Friday morning near his home in Kulambiro along with his bodyguard and driver as headed to UCU for a career Guidance talk.

Late Kaweesi At PRAU Night May 2015

The fallen Police chief will be laid to rest on Tuesday at his Ancestral Home at Kyazanga in Lwengo District starting at 12:00 noon. Public Relations Association of Uganda (PRAU) released a statement describing Kaweesi as a mentor.

Official Statement on Afande Kaweesi Death by the Public Relations Association of Uganda

Friday was a very gloomy day for all Public Relations practitioners and communication specialists not only in Uganda, but across the region. Sad because one of the untimely death of one of our own, Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Andrew Felix Kaweesi who was shot dead together with his body guard and driver by unknown gunmen as they left for work near his home.

Sad because he was a father, a brother, a peer and also a mentor to many who loved his respectful & engaging approach as he performed the various roles & responsibilities he was assigned within the Uganda Police Force. Many of our members and Ugandans at large looked up to him as an exemplary communicator who was dedicated and passionate about changing the perception of the institution he served loyally.

As PRAU we strongly condemn this criminal act and appeal to our government to do whatever it takes to bring the culprits of this heinous crime and abate any further unnecessary deaths.

Afande Felix Kaweesi, as most of us fondly called him, was very instrumental in building and safe guarding the reputation of the Uganda Police Force. He used every opportunity to demonstrate that it was a strong reputable institution and bridged the gap between it and the general public.

He will be remembered for many things by all Ugandans but to us PRAU members, we will distinctly remember him for engaging with our members through networking events where he would share his diverse knowledge on various topical issues. He was a distinguished and very knowledgeable orator, with a knack for story-telling, often times articulating issues with humility and facts.

We will remember him most memorably for his address to us in May 2015 on the topic; “Combating Terrorism And Insecurity”.  He shared an interesting story of how during his time as the Director of Police Operations, he made an impromptu visit to Namagunga Primary Boarding School to check on his daughter clad in police uniform. To his surprise, many pupils started shouting: “Tear gas! Tear gas! Where is the tear gas?”

He said that this situation was his turning point. He henceforth committed to change the negative perception that was associated with the police force. We can all attest to his achievement on this commitment.

The Public Relations Association of Uganda has lost one of its best at a time when he was needed the most. Our sincere condolences to the government, the family, Uganda Police force, friends and well wishers! May his soul rest in eternal peace!

Cynthia, Mpanga

President – Public Relations Association of Uganda
