Stephen Kiprotich Makes Uganda Proud Again

Mon, 04/24/2017 - 11:11

Stephen Kiprotich won a Silver medal at the Hamburg marathon, coming just six seconds behind eventual winner Ethiopian Tsegaye Mekonnen last Saturday

The Ugandan was however supposed to participate in the London marathon that same day but he opted out to run in the Hamburg marathon he thought he stood a chance in.

“It was tough race but I decided to be composed and focused,” the 2012 Olympic champion Kiprotich said hours after the race.

Using lots of energy, Kiprotich was running in third place after 32km and charged to go past Kenya’s Kendagor as the race was came to an end.

Because of the too much energy, Kiprotich couldn’t link up with the Ethiopian thus settling for the second spot and Kendagor coming third.

The Ugandan runner posted a time of two hours, seven minutes and 31 seconds after 42km to count for his third best time of his six-year marathon career.

Mulindwa was the president of FUFA for two terms before he quit to concentrate on personal businesses and leaving the seat for incumbent president Moses Magogo who has been in power since then.

Having been on good terms previously, the two are currently not seeing eye to eye and it is highly believed it is one of the reasons that triggered Mulindwa’s decision to stand for the most powerful position in Uganda’s football.

Did the current differences between Lawrence Mulindwa and Moses Magogo triggger him to stand for FUFA president again? 

FUFA through their third Vice President Denis Mbidde recently attacked Mulindwa and referred to him as a failure in football.

Lawrence Mulindwa was heavily criticized after falling apart with then football starts like David Obua and Ibrahim Ssekagya, leading to their quitting of international football.

It’s Madrid Derby In Champions League As Man Utd Take On Celta Vigo In Europa

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 18:17

In the Champions League draw done earlier today, holders Real Madrid play city rivals Atletico Madrid while French side Monaco take on Italian club Juventus.

Frenchman Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid is bidding to make history by becoming the first side to retain the champions league trophy if they emerge triumphant on 3rd June in Cardiff.

The first legs of those ties will be played on 2 and 3 May, with the return legs taking place the following week.

EUROPA LEAGUE

Meanwhile Manchester United will face Spanish La Liga club side Celta Vigo in the semi-finals of the Europa League after beating Anderlecht at Old Trafford last night to storm the semi-finals courtesy of Marcus Rashford’s extra-time.

United are pursuing this cause seriously as it could offer a route back to champions league next season if they win it. The Premier League side have already  won the European Cup three times but have never triumphed in the continent’s secondary club competition the Europa league.

In the other tie, Dutch side Ajax, winners in 1992, come up against French club Lyon  with the first legs to be played on 4 May and the second leg on 11 May. The final will be held in Stockholm, Sweden on 24 May.

 

Ajax, who beat Schalke 4-3 on aggregate to reach the last four, are also experienced European campaigners. They have won the Champions League/European Cup four times previously and the Europa League/Uefa Cup once, beating Torino in the 1992 final.

UNITED SCRAP THROUGH

A wasteful United took the lead on the night and in the tie through Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s drilled low shot in the 10th minute but Anderlecht restored parity when Sofiane Hanni scrambled home an equaliser after 32 minutes.

Mourinho’s side then went into a prolonged session of wasting chance after chance forcing Anderlecht back into the game that stretched into extra time with injuries to defender Marcos Rojo that seems to unsettle their rhythm as well. A serious-looking knee injury at the end of normal time to top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the end of normal time, is now a big cause of alarm as well.

Rasford(R) scored the vital goal for Manchester United

However Teenage striker Rashford who also scored against Chelsea over the weekend, had other ideas as he turned and shot into the bottom corner of the net in the 107th minute from Marouane Fellaini’s knockdown to avoid a penalty shootout to the relief of the Old Trafford faithful

Tears As Juventus Dumps Wasteful Barcelona Out Of Champions League

Thu, 04/20/2017 - 15:41

Several Barcelona players and fans were left in tears after being eliminated from the Champions League last night by Italian side Juventus. Brazilian star forward Neymer was particularly inconsolable after Juventus produced an exceptional defensive performance to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League after stopping Barcelona from scoring at the Camp Nou.

Neymar was left in tears on the pitch after Barcelona failed to overturn a 3-0 deficit at the Nau Camp following a 3-0 first leg drubbing in Italy a week ago with the Italian champions producing a defensive master class that stifled Barca, resulting in a goalless draw.

The magical NMS of Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi were rarely given a chance to make amends in last night’s return fixture with Neymar visibly upset by his side’s elimination, but was consoled by his former Barca team-mate Dani Alves and Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado.

Barca failed to repeat their last-16 heroics when they overturned a first-leg 4-0 deficit to beat Paris St-Germain with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all wasting promising chances as the home side were restricted to only one shot on target.

MONACO OUT CLASS DORTMUND

Meanwhile Monaco also reached the Champions League semi-finals for the first time since 2004 after their  impressive second-leg performance in the last eight againstGerman side  Borussia Dortmund last night.

Coming into the tie with 2-3 advantage, the Lique 1 side stormed  Stade Louis II in style after kick-off was pushed back five minutes after Dortmund’s team bus was delayed for about 20mnutes..

Teenager Kylian Mbappe pounced from close range to increase Monaco’s advantage after three minutes and former Manchester United and Chelsea misfit Radamel Falcao headed in soon after to all but put the tie beyond Dortmund.

The Bundesliga outfit threw on exciting forward Ousmane Dembele and it was a fantastic run from the 19-year-old that set up Marco Reus to lash in after the break for what turned out to be a consolation with substitute Valere Germain scoring 22 seconds after coming off the bench for the hosts to secure their spot in the last four with a convincing 6-3 aggregate win.

Photos: Nameless Braves Heavy Rains While Performing In Uganda

Thu, 04/20/2017 - 15:29

We will not be wrong to say that artiste Nameless was and is still a star when it comes to the Kenyan music industry, with one of his tunes ‘Sinzia’ rocking the airwaves in Uganda some years back. Therefore, for big artistes like him, it is kind of hard for them to perform while it is raining on them but to our surprise, Nameless did.

On Monday the 17th of April as one of Uganda’s top music producers Washington marked 20 years in the music industry at Casablanca Pub located in Kololo, the Kenyan artiste was the main headliner of the event dubbed Magic Washington Legacy and he took to stage at half past 2 AM while it rained. Without a change of mind just because it was showering, he went on and performed as the fans cheered and danced alongside him.

Clad in a pair of blue shoes, white stripped jeans, a black t-shirt and jacket, he sang songs like ‘Boomba Train’, ‘Butterfly’, ‘Sunshine’, ‘Sinzia’ among many others. As matter of fact, ‘Sinzia’ threw the fans who also didn’t leave because it was raining into a frenzy and some ladies were seen pulling some rare strokes.

Nameless’ performance was not interrupted by the rain at all

The rain did not stop throughout Nameless’ entire performance. “Tuendele ama tusiendele” (Kiswahili for should we go on or shouldn’t we go on) Nameless asked the excited crowd. “Tuendele.” The fans replied him thus performing more songs for them.

Fans were seen having a good time, taking pictures and doing live social media videos with him.

Here is more of how it went down through the lens

Referee On The Spot As Ronaldo Hat-Trick Knocks Out Bayern

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 20:50

Soccer can be cruel at times and last night German side Bayern Munich were bundled out of the Champions League as they felt out done by poor officiation. At the apex of the mourning was non other than manager Carlo Ancelotti who said referee Viktor Kassai “wasn’t up to the task” of a Champions League quarter-final and called for video technology “as soon as possible”.

This was after Bayern midfielder Arturo Vidal was sent off for two bookable offences and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo who appeared to be yards offside scored in extra time to give the Spanish holders a 6-3 on aggregate win.

“We had thought of everything going into this game – except the referee,” Ancelotti said.

“You can’t decide a semi-final spot like this. It shouldn’t happen at this level.”

Vidal’s red card was the turning point of the match

Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to take his Champions League tally to 100 goals as holders Real Madrid bided to make history as the first team to successfully defend the European title by eliminated their German rivals in extra-time.

The German side went into the game needing at least two goals to progress and took the lead when Robert Lewandowski confidently drilled in a penalty after Arjen Robben was brought down in the area. However, Ronaldo headed in Casemiro’s precise cross to equalise on the night to make it 3-2 on aggregate.

Sergio Ramos scored an own goal to make it 3-3 taking the match to extra time. The Germans then crumbled after Ronaldo fired in Madrid’s second and then tapped in the third – his 100th Champions League goal – after Marcelo’s marauding run, with Marco Asensio sealing victory by shooting into the bottom corner.

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 100 Champions league goals

LEICESTER’S FAIRYTALE RUN COMES TO AN END

English premier league Champions Leicester City’s Champions League adventure ended in disappointment at the quarter-final stage despite a spirited second-leg display against Atletico Madrid after a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium.

Saul Niguez’s 26th-minute header added to Atletico’s one-goal advantage from the first leg in Madrid making it a mountain to climb for the debutants who needed three second half goals to overcome. They responded with splendid defiance and equalised on the night when Jamie Vardy scored at the far post just after the hour which was too little too late.

Tonight, Spanish Barcelona hopes to overcome a 3-0 lead against Italian side Juventus while German side Borussia Dortmund also has a tall order to overcome As Roma of Italy to determine other semi-finalists

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 09:44

It truly has been a long and busy weekend and we must say welcome back. A lot of events took place and among them was the Magic Washington Legacy show that was aimed at celebrating and marking 20 years of producer Washington in the music industry.

Starting way back in 1997 with Bobi Wine’s ‘Akagoma’ being his first hit song in the early 2000’s, Washington marked the 20 years in style at the function he hosted at the Acacia Avenue based Casablanca Pub on Monday the 17th of April (Easter Monday). With Kenya’s Nameless being the event’s main headliner, he took to stage amid lots of ululations from fans who had all along been waiting for him despite the fact there was a serious drizzle.

Despite the fact that it was drizzling, Nameless still put up an exciting performance

The drizzle changed nothing as Nameless went ahead to perform in it with the support and cheers from the revellers especially the ladies as he performed songs like ‘Butterfly’, ‘Sinzia’, ‘Sunshine’ among others. Immediately after his performance, Washington alongside his friends took the stage where they cut a cake in commemoration of the 20 years as he sang one of his tunes dubbed ‘Kyewu’.

On the other hand, the event was in a away kind of a Reggae one specially basing on the fact that Washington is a Rastafarian and plus Reggae music was the genre played most. The attendees who stood the drizzle thrice were kept entertained with live Dj mixes from Dj Faisal and other performances from Systems Band who warmed up the attendees with a live session of Congolese music, Happy Kitanda, Rich 2 Trumpeter, Bruno K, Natty Dread, Nina Roz, City Rock Entertainment, Sam Okello before Washington produced a collabo song between Okello and Radio and Weasel live on stage.

In a bid to make the song ‘Mbozi za Malwa’ popular both in Uganda and Kenya, artistes Bebe Cool and Kenya’s Sauti Sol, have embarked on a strategy to have one lucky dancer walk away with a cash price and an opportunity to mix and mingle. 

The artistes soon after releasing the song penned up a dance challenge between Ugandans and Kenyans with the winner taking away not only Shs1.750,000 but also a date with either of the musicians. The dance challenge is on and the winner will be announced on the 26th of this particular month.

“So, Bebe Cool claimed that Ugandan girls are better dancers than Kenyan girls. To prove him wrong, we’d like to announce an online dance contest between Kenyan girls and Ugandan girls to settle this once and for all,” said Sauti Sol posted on their page. 

They also added that they will preside over the Kenyan dancers who have to shoot a video clip dancing to ‘Mbozi Za malwa’ and upload it on Instagram and Facebook while Bebe Cool does the same about the Ugandan dancers. 

The audio is already getting a lot of shares, reviews and as of yesterday, it was one of the most talked about song in both countries with the video expected to come out a few days from now.
