I want to make a name for myself — singer Elysha Mutebi on quitting his band

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.

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.

I encourage young people to take advantage of this opportunity because it will give them the opportunity to access beneficial information at the tip of their fingers. It also means that those who are financially unable to afford formal education at institutions of higher learning will be able to learn at a minimal initial cost (buying a simcard and MiFi), and thereafter at no cost to them if they are subscribed with Vodafone. Furthermore, anyone that is interested in learning beyond their own field of study will be able to expand their knowledge base by having access to a variety of subject-specific videos.”

Mc Joe deeply immersed in the gospel on “Ndaani kabisa”

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 17:53

By Stuart G-Khast 

Christian rapper Mc Joe Africa Unashamed is proving to be quiet a force to reckon with in the gospel music industry. He has released a new single dubbed “Ndaani kabisa”.

For starters, “Ndaani kabisa” is Kishwali for deeply-immersed indeed! On that note, it is safe to say that the rapper is deeply immersed into spreading the word.

After the release of “Gonna make it” video a few weeks back, this rapper is not resting. Based in Kenya, MC Joe latest song Ndaani kabisa” has all the right things going for him.

The song opens with sizzling sounds, chants and deejay scratch mixes before ushering in loud base beats that gives the song its gritty texture. MC Joe picks the mic immediately and starts painting the picture with scripture-inspired lyrics. He raps in Kiswahili and English with a very authoritative and sonorous voice that keeps the mood alive throughout the song.

Ndaani kabisa is loud, youthful and oozes energetic flow that will get the listener on his feet bumping to the sounds.

Mc Joe is unashamed to probably dab for his saviour. This is a song that brings people especially the youthful ones closer to the gospel.

Listen to the song below.

10 Signs that your partner needs you to be more romantic

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 17:07

One of the things we grapple with in modern relationships is the issue of romantic consistency.

Guys go all out to woo women with all they’ve got. They send ceaseless messages, go with her on numerous fun dates, random gifts, and all that.

You are caring, pampering, attentive, and most importantly, oh so romantic.

But then, along the line, when she is all yours – signed, sealed, delivered – when everything is cut and dried and you ‘have her in the bag,’ you stop trying… you stop making real efforts

At this stage, you are no longer so concerned about doing the little romantic things that used to blow her mind. You are more about making money, grabbing the big deals and basically just about ‘taking of her’.

But are you really taking care of her?

For most women, relationships need to be balanced. You just can’t be all about their financial comfort to the detriment of their emotional well-being.

And if your partner ever exhibits the subtle signs listed below with any form of regularity, your relationship might have gotten to a point of reevaluation and resetting of priorities.

1. She tells you how romantic her friend’s partner is

She tells you about every romantic thing the partners of her friends have been doing lately.

Oh, and if she finds online articles and stories about romantic stuff people did, she sends them to you.

2. What’s the rush about?

If your partner asks you this question when you spend time together, it means she needs more of you, and you better create more time for her.

3. Let’s not talk about work tonight

When this becomes a frequent response your wife/babe gives you, it means your communication is starting to get a little too one-dimensional.

4. She buys herself flowers

If things ever get to this point, what more clue do you need, bruh?

5. She mentions trips and travels

Everyone loves vacations, holidays and baecations. Treat her to this once on a while, please.

6. Buys herself new lingerie

She does this just a bit more frequently than she used to, and she always has reason to bend and pick stuff from the floor when she has these sexy things on… isn’t that just quite blatant enough?

Biko close your laptop. You have more pressing issues.

7. She is trying to drag out foreplay

This is a cue that you are no longer the attentive, painstaking, thorough partner you used to be. She needs that part of you back.

Reawaken it, ASAP.

8. She is bailing on your plans

She no longer finds it fun to go to that same old restaurant, or do the same old date-night routine.

Switch it up, bruh. Switch your romance game up!

9. She reminds you a lot about when you just met

You know… the good old days… when you were more romantic, fitter and paid more attention to her and not just ‘taking care and providing for her needs.’

10. She gets really mushy

Ok, most times when a woman loves you, she is expressive and cuddly touchy and all those sugary stuff.

But when she becomes even extra sweet, rubbing up on you, holding your hand, seeking conversations, wanting to go places with you… that could be her way of trying to bring back the lost spark to your relationship, and all you need do is meet her halfway.

15 Types of partners you shouldn’t be having at age 30

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 16:57

There is a kind of attitude that comes with being young, being free and not having so much to care about.

You ball hard, love deeply, live freely and party wildly. Life couldn’t be better in those moments… you wish it’d never stop.

But the truth is no one lives forever, no one is forever young.

As you grow older, you should get better in all things. Your relationship experiences should have taught you quite a lot and you should now know better.

At that stage, you should have become a more considerate affectionate lover and your choices in partners should have become better because you now know better.

At age 30, these are the kind of partners you can no longer afford to be with:

1. The partner who isn’t invested or concerned about your life, career and things you hold dear.

2. The partner who never has any positive thing to say about anything; whose outlook on life is of serious pessimism.

3. The partner who always says the most stupid and hurtful things about your weight.

4. The one you just couldn’t ever trust, no matter how hard you tried.

5. That parasitic partner who always has something to ask but never to give or share with you.

6. The one who somehow looks for a way to always you feel bad/stupid about your choices.

7. That one who tries to totally alienate you from friends and family so as to have you for just themselves.

8. The lover who is always trying to change you.

9. The one who still hasn’t learnt to manage funds wisely without assistance.

10. At 30, you should not be considering a relationship with a guy/babe who is still mummy or daddy’s boy/girl.

11. The partner who is never ever there for you.

12. The one who hasn’t gotten a proper handle of his temperament.

13. Stay away from that ex who has repeatedly treated you like shit over the years but you still find yourself unable to hate.

14. The friends-with-benefits man/woman you always run to when you and your partner have issues. It’s time to let go of them for good.

15. At 30, stability and commitment should be top of your priorities in your love life.

Anyone who cannot guarantee that should be left in your past where you were young, wild and free.

Those days are gone now, you should let those people go, too.

5 Sex Positions to Try If He Has a Big Manhood

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 16:43

Mae West said, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.” Which can be very true. But sometimes it can just be, well, too much. If your man is packing large down below, the trick to good sex is twofold: control the depth of penetration, and keep him the hell away from your cervix. Here are some ways to comfortably enjoy all his glory.

1. The Flying V

With him kneeling, the trick to this position is finding something slightly lower than his hips to prop your sweet ass on, like a sturdy coffee table or a pile of pillows. Sit on it and make your legs into a V-shape. When he has to enter you downward like this, it keeps him from going super deep. You get the feeling of being well-taken (oh yes!) without being impaled.

2. The Cherry on Top

Lie on top of him on your back and have him enter you from behind. This position has a semi-awkward angle that keeps him from hitting you too deep, but still strokes the sensitive top side of your vagina. Even better: lube your upper thighs so they stimulate his shaft with every thrust. He also has direct access to finger your clit from here, which is always a bonus.

3. The Stand and Deliver

Stand facing each other and lift one of your legs, wrapping it around his waist. Have him enter you standing like this (he may have to squat a little). One of the disadvantages of standing positions with a man less bountifully endowed than yours is that you just can’t…get…him…deep…enough. But that’s the good part here. You’ll get plenty of him, just not too much. Part of this is because you’re lengthening your vaginal cavity, but don’t bring that up during. Or ever, probably.

4. The Thigh-High Straddle

Hard to imagine that something that starts with sitting cross-legged could be so hot, but trust. Have him sit cross-legged on the bed, and straddle him, using his raised thighs to support your butt so he doesn’t go too deep. You control the thrusts (control = good): go slow and rock back and forth, letting him slowly in deeper. Also good for deep, hot kisses, plus you’ll have a free hand for self-love on your clit.

5. The Humping Bumper Cars

Warning: this position is not only way advanced, but involves being in that crab walk position from grade school gym class. With him in the crab walk position, stand straddling his hips, squat down to let him enter you, then lean back onto your hands so you’re in a crab walk position too, with him inside you. Yeah, it’s kind of funny seeing each other doing a naked crab walk, but you’ll both forget that immediately when you lean back and start thrusting against him.

5 First Date Rules to Impress a Woman

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 16:18

You may have the first date jitters, but when men follow just five simple rules, they are almost assured of a second date.

There is no magic to this. It’s just old-fashioned good manners, but in an era of anonymous e-mail, text messaging and voice mail, acting like a gentleman can really make a lady sit up and take notice. Phineas Mollod and Jason Tesauro, authors of “The Modern Gentleman: A Guide to Essential Manners, Savvy and Vice” and “The Modern Lover: A Playbook for Suitors, Spouses, and Ringless Carousers,” have created five first date rules designed to impress.

Rule No. 1: Dress with finesse.
Instead of just grabbing something out of the closet, think about it first. Choose something that is simple, but sophisticated. Clean helps, too. “If you accessorize to reflect your every interest, you can look like the decorated hood of a NASCAR racer. From your collection of LIVESTRONG yellow wristbands, boldly-patterned ties and quirky socks, pick one–and only one– attention-grabbing item before going out,” Mollod and Tesauro write in Happen magazine.

Rule No. 2: Perfect the proper greeting.
Pick your date up with a bouquet of flowers in your hand. Greet her warmly and place a slight, but lingering, kiss on her cheek. Never shake her hand. (This isn’t a business meeting, after all.) However, if her body language says, “Don’t you dare touch me!” then don’t you dare touch her. Do offer a sincere compliment. Like what? Mollod and Tesauro suggest these:

  • “You’re even lovelier in person” if you’ve met online.
  • “You’re even lovelier than I remembered” if you met in person.

Rule No. 3: Charm her with a bit of classic etiquette.

  • Hold the door for her.
  • Let her go first.
  • In the restaurant, give her the seat with the better view.
  • Stand when she leaves the table.
  • Escort her down the street so you are near the curb. That way you’re the one who gets sprayed with puddles from a speeding bus.

“Nowadays, dating is like job hunting, and a gracious sense of manners is a bonus skill that will increase your curb appeal,” insist Mollod and Tesauro.

Rule No. 4: Order with panache.
Remember that the main dish is your date, not the food. Take command in the restaurant. When the server appears and you’re not ready, just say, “We’re still looking, but please bring the spring rolls while we decide.” However, it’s too forward to order her entrée for her.

Rule No. 5: Bid her goodnight in grand style
Was it a delightful date? Go for a stroll and hold her hand. When you part, say something thoughtful. Mollod and Tesauro suggest, “What a marvelous time. I’d love to see you and your sweet smile again.” What about a kiss? “A successful first date is best capped off with a lip-to-lip smooch that neither lingers too long nor leaves too soon,” they write in Happen magazine. “Then, lean back and offer breathing room. If an encore is desired, body language will be crystal clear; otherwise, bid good evening and march away confidently…there will be a next time.”

Was the night a flop despite your gallantry? Then shake her hand or give her a brief hug. Tell her you had a nice evening and bid her good night. Don’t tell her you’ll call when you know you won’t.

Notably, it’s not the first time that Ray C has said that Kenya’s Head of State is the man of her dream.

In July 2015, the award-winning singer put up a post on her social media pages saying she has a crush on Uhuru, adding that she dreams about him everyday.

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 15:47

Following the completion of the Big Brother Naija reality TV show, the dust is yet to settle as regards the sexual molestation case against Tokunbo ‘TBoss’ Idowu which led to the disqualification and eviction of fellow housemate, Kemen.

Following the joke made by comedian AY Makun and Helen Paul which sparked social media reactions, the victim of the sexual assault case, Tboss has issued a statement with regards to the case.

Tboss took to her Instagram page to share videos in which she thanked Nigerians for their continued support adding that she is ready to promote and uphold values she holds dear.

She said: “First of all, I will like to thank everyone who supported me in my Big Brother Naija journey. I’m beyond grateful for your time and the immense efforts and resources to get me to the Top 3. It has been a big adjustment for me coming back home to Nigeria concerning the attention my participation in the show attracted. Why I’ve tried to adjust as fast as I can, certain incidents have happened in the past week that have been difficult to shake off.

“I am not unaware of the the thousands who raised their voices in my defence. I am extremely grateful to you all. I have realized for the foreseeable future, I will always be in the eye of the storm and that is why I have chosen to be measured in my approach and speech. I am however not oblivious to it all. Words are powerful but actions speak louder.

“Over the next few weeks, I will align myself with several courses that promote and uphold values I hold dear. Going forward, I will no longer allow myself to be put in situations that trivialize and attempt to normalize the unfortunate incident that happened to me on March 5th in the Big Brother Naija house. Conversations must be had on the importance of consent. Thank you so much guys for listening to me. This is TBoss.”

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 15:21

Tiwa Savage and estranged hubby Teebillz

Nigerian female pop star, Tiwa Savage’s estranged husband Tunji Balogun popularly known as Teebillz has expressed his regrets.

He said the belief that men should always dominate every aspect of the marriage was incorrect.

Teebillz was speaking as a panelist at “Mind the Gap X”, a love and relationship class for single, married and divorced people organised by Pastor Wale Adefarasin and life coach, Lanre Olusola.

According to him, “If I have the chance of doing my marriage over again, l will put God first and not have an elaborate wedding.

“It’s the 21st century and as men, most of us want to live like we are the lords of the marriage.

“You’re a partner. It’s about our weaknesses, we’re here to help each other.”

Teebillz further advised men to be more concerned about communication, understanding in the marriage instead of being selfish.

Ugandan artistes are not creative, at least according to musician Geosteady.

The “Owooma” singer has revealed that the local music industry is still lagging behind on the African continent because musicians are reluctant to explore new music styles.

He made the remarks while speaking about his recent music tour in South Africa. “Our music is not played in South African nightclubs,” he said. “I hang out in different nightclubs but not even one Ugandan song was played.”

Geosteady further went on to add that Ugandan music sounds the same to foreigners.

“Ugandan music all sounds the same,” he explained. “Artistes are not creative. Most singers usually ask producers to make a beat he has heard somewhere and  do not allow producers to exercise their creativity.”

He concluded noting that musicians need to be more creative to be able compete more favorably on the continent.
