Ronny Mc Vex’s Comedy Feast Lives Up To The Billing

Thu, 02/02/2017 - 20:29

A lot was expected of Ronnie Mcvex before he was handed the ComedyFeast at Benrich and on Tuesday, he showed what he is capable of by probably holding the best theme night ever at the Kisasi-based hangout.

Stand up comedian Ronnie Mcvex who has been working with Fun Factory, was entrusted with the night but going by the numbers that turned up, the owners might really be happy with his idea of coming up with a comedy theme night.

With all the comedy shows that are happening all over town, you might be wondering why someone would head to Kisaasi for a comedy session – however, the event host gave them all the reason to. He decided to invite all the leading top comedians in the country who are also his friends to be part of this grand opening.

Comedians like Salvado, Madrat and Chicko and Napoleon Emma among others were the headlining performers and as if that wasn’t enough, Team No Sleep’s Sheebah was also brought into the mix to do a few songs.

Despite the cold weather and drizzles, comedy fans came in large numbers and their ribs were pretty cracked up by the comedians. Some were seen wiping their tears while others just held their stomachs to contain the jokes.

“Thanks everyone who turned up,” Mcvex said as the night was coming to a close and he also encouraged people to continue with the spirit and still turn up for the show every Tuesday.

All is set for the faceoff between Onduparaka Fc and Gor Mahia

Wed, 02/01/2017 - 18:17


Onduparaka FC, sponsored by Betway, will be hosting the club’s first ever international friendly game against GorMahia FC From Kenya. Gor Mahia Football Club, commonly also known as K’Ogalo, is a football club based in Nairobi, Kenya. They have won the Kenyan Premier League a record 15 times, two more than their arch-rivals A.F.C.

The club was started in 1968 on February 17th with their home ground being the Nairobi city stadium. Currently the club is under the capable hands of manager Ze’ Maria. The respect the Caterpillars have for GorMahia extends beyond their success on the pitch, and includes their ability to inspire a massive following that has kept the club growing from glory to glory over the years.

For a very longtime, this particular club has changed the face of Kenyan Premier League and Onduparaka FC is motivated by the team’s success and efforts. It was for this particular reason that the teams decided to organize this friendly just before the kick-off of second round of the Azam Uganda Premier League which in itself is great for sports development in Uganda and East Africa at large.

Ready: Onduparaka FC

This international friendly game will be played this Saturday the 4th of February 2017 at Namboole National stadium as a build-up for the second leg of the  Azam Uganda Premier League season which is expected to be far more fierce and competitive than the first and Onduparaka is going to use this match against GorMahiaFC as a springboard into a successful start.

Gor Mahia Fc will arrive into the country at Entebbe International Airport at 9pm on Thursday 2nd February 2017 and they will meet the press briefly and then they will be transported to their hotel which was not confirmed by press time. They will have a training session at Namboole on Friday 3rd in preparation for the game on Saturday in the same place.

“Onduparaka FC would like to thank all the that has enabled this day to come to life these include the official sponsor Betway, for all the support in preparation for this game, TemboFlour, Vendor Capital, UBL, Pioneer Buses and all others for their partnership”. Said Mercy Munduru the Club’s PRO.

Gates will open as early as midday and entrance is set at 5,000/- for ordinary and 15,000/- for VIP seats. Fans travelling from upcountry will be rewarded with free Onduparaka T-shirts.

Singer Melody Heads Back To Sipapa Entertainment

Wed, 02/01/2017 - 17:31

Just like parents, record labels also play a huge role in artiste’s careers and when an artiste decides to move on, only time tells whether that decision was right or wrong depending on what they have achieved while away.

For some it works out while for others it doesn’t and for Melody it didn’t and that is why he is back at where it all started from.

Melody real names Manson Kakooza started his singing career at Sipapa entertainment and it’s because of this label that he was able to record a song titled ‘Nkoleki’ with Jose Chameleon which really worked for him because two years in the industry, he has never had a successful song like that and after recording a few others, he thought he was ready to take a solo career.

Melody is back at Sipapa

The welcome party 

That turned out wrong because everything went west side. But just like a parent, Sipapa entertainment didn’t want one of their own to suffer and in the process; they welcomed him back a few days ago.

Melody and other artistes after being officially welcomed at Sipapa

The event took place at the company offices in Mutungo where other new artistes signed to the label where also unveiled some of whom include Buchaman, Selena Batta, Carl Famous and Brown Sugar.

“I’m very happy to be back home and I’m so grateful that management has welcomed me with open arms,” Melody said.

Standard Liege Not Impressed By Farouk Miya

Wed, 02/01/2017 - 15:06

Much as we are praising him as one of Uganda’s best footballers currently, his club is not impressed by his display over the past one year he has been with them, scoring just two goals yet he’s a striker.

Farouk Miya, going by the news we received from Belgium has been loaned to a team known as Royal Excel Mouscron that is fighting relegation in the league just after a year with the Champions league team.

The club confirmed the short loan deal between the two sides and will see the Uganda cranes striker spend the rest of the 2016-17 at new club.

Farouk Miya has been shipped out on loan

“Standard de Liège, Royal Excel Mouscron and Farouk Miya have reached an agreement,” read part of the statement on the standard liege website

Farouk Miya who scored Uganda’s only goal at the Afcon joined Standard Liege in January last year from Vipers but has struggled for playing time at the club that sits 9th on the log with 33 points after 24 games.

The club that Miya has joined sits at the bottom of the table with just 18 points after 24 games only waiting to be relegated if they don’t improve.

Men’s Fashion: Meet Nairobi’s Dapper Monkey

Tue, 01/31/2017 - 18:30

AUTHOR: Vincent Libosso Embukane

CHANNEL: Whats GoodNetwork Nairobi

 From cool smart casual to modern mod, or preppy with an edge – whatever your taste, Dapper Monkey online store helps define your style.

They say the clothes make the man, and Ian Arunga is daily proving this through his luxury and feel good men’s only apparel online shop called Dapper Monkey.

A sit down with him, he is quick to correct me, “Dapper Monkey started last year 2016 on 12th September and it is a Project with my partner Cheryl Itemere.”

Ian Arunga is both ludicrously Kenyan (at one point he turns and poses to his colleague Kevin Muchemi, “when was the last time you wore a suit?”)  And his love for smart casual lights on his face each time he speaks.

Today he is rocking a white shirt with blue paisley prints, maroon pants and brown Chelsea leather boots. Clearly Arunga is no stranger to fashion. Do not be fooled by the calm eyes behind the brown wooden spectacles. Arunga and team at Dapper Monkey are out to ensure there is luxury in men’s apparel’s delivery, package and everything associated.

“Every time I would meet people they would ask me about what I had worn and where they could get it. I then realized, wait a minute, so there is a market for what I love,” Explains Ian Arunga. Those curiosities lead to him and co-founder Cheryl Itemere setting up the online shop in September last year.

Dapper Monkey is a highly luxury online shop for men’s apparel. Everything on sale is fancy and sharp ware. The whole idea was to give any buyer a ‘feel good’ experience. Anyone can buy a shirt or a pair of socks in any stall anywhere in Nairobi but when buying from Dapper Monkey, they make sure you go through the experience; From the packaging (socks, ties, pocket squares and other small accessories come in Dapper Monkey Mason jars, suits come in Ankara suit bags and shirts come in mailing tubes), to customer care to delivery of your order.

All transactions are done online and payment is by MPESA. As we speak, a call comes in and Ian Arunga is quick to respond, “make the order and your delivery will be dispatched at mid-day.” He explains to me how Kenyans are yet to catch the hang of e-commerce.

“It is a challenge but we have seen quite an improvement since we started on how people transact on the website. It will get better for sure and soon guys can start to enjoy the thrill of online shopping.”

The spirit of inspiration lies all over this website. Ian is quick to explain how he came about the name ‘monkey’ in Dapper Monkey. “I went to seven different nursery schools that were overly Indian community based and one teacher called me a monkey since I would question a lot of things.

So, Dapper Monkey is in essence an inspiration to anyone out there who feels looked down upon. You can make positive those negatives.”

With such a vibe, Dapper Monkey is making strides this year with the official launch of The Bespoke men’s suit collection slated for February, and Mini Monkey for little dapper boys being launched later in the year.

With sixty percent of the apparels being made locally, Ian Arunga envisions a time when Dapper Monkey will have everything on the website catalogue made locally. There is power in that label: Made In Kenya and he is quick to add that hopefully by 2018, this will have been achieved.

Dapper Monkey has a team of designers and stylists who work on the background creating a look-book for anyone new to smart casual or what many all official. “These stylists’ commitment to quality ensures we remain steady and maintain that same quality in all our products.” He adds.

That commitment to quality is now seeing them deliver countrywide and sometimes globally.

Can Liverpool Change The League Tide Against High-Flying Chelsea?

Tue, 01/31/2017 - 14:29

As the premier league resumes today after a break, there is a lot of anticipation as Liverpool take on Chelsea tonight at 11pm. The Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool have the support of the rest of the Premier League in their bid to halt leaders Chelsea at Anfield and blow the title race open again.

Chelsea with 22 games played so far have maintained the first position with 55 points after an impressive run of wins which is followed by the London based-duo of Arsenal with 47 points, Tottenham Hotspurs with 46 points and Liverpool who have not won in 2017, coming in at fourth place with 45 points.

Who will have the last laugh as Liverpool’s Klopp( R) takes on Chelsea’s Conte 

Liverpool have lost three games at home in the space of a week, suffering a setback to their title challenge against Swansea as well as going out of both domestic cup competitions to Southampton and Wolves. This game means a lot to them but is a big challenge; however it could be what catapults the team and puts them back on the map as a title contender.

“But that means nothing. We want to go for these three points and that’s enough to be motivated at the highest level. We need the points. We cannot waste time or points any more. We have no responsibility for Chelsea’s near-perfect season because we beat them once. The rest we have no influence on. If they lose here and win the rest, they are probably champions.”  Jurgen Klopp told the media.

Things are heating up as managers plot for the title race and top four places

Even Manchester United who is in sixth place would benefit from a Chelsea loss if the Mourinho side wins their upcoming fixture against Hull City. This is a must watch game, it might just define the turning point in a rather unpredictable season.

Roger Fededer Arguably The Greatest Of All Time

Tue, 01/31/2017 - 14:16

Before this Australian Open final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal even began, it felt like the Micheal Jackson performing for a one-off gig. When Federer’s forehand finished it, deep into the Melbourne night, it was as if the curtains were closing and the crowd was still chanting for one more song.

 Roger Federer, is supposed to be not only past his prime but past the period when he was past his prime. He may have pulled off not only the best of his 18 Grand Slam singles titles but possibly the greatest Slam victory of all.

Roger Federer is arguably the best ever tennis player

After being out injured for the past six months, adrift in the rankings; superseded by the younger, fitter, faster players, the thirty-five years old, a father of four – in recent seasons worshipped as a relic rather than real-time contender has managed to defy the odds.

During the game he had a break down in the deciding set, and was off court for a lengthy medical time-out, receiving further treatment between games. Nadal used this to his advantage pushing his forehand and pulled the legs off him like a cruel kid playing with a kite, only for Roger Federer to reach back into the years for one final dazzling burst.

Roger Federer defeated Nadal over the weekend

Most meetings between the world number 17 and the world number nine are not like this. But then no-one has ever been like Federer and Nadal, the two finest players in history, the rivalry between them approached only by Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi.

It is 31 months since Nadal last got past a quarter-final at a major, seven years since Federer last won the title here, and this was the past come back gloriously to the present: a beautiful final for troubled times, sport playing to perfection its role as the sweetest of distractions.

Tue, 01/31/2017 - 12:00

The Grammy Awards are arguably the biggest entertainment awards on the globe which many artistes in the world die to be associated with. It even comes with a bundle of joy if one is nominated for these awards because just a simple nomination is something worth being proud of because of the ratings and mileage associated with it.

And now, news reaching our desk is that Urban TV’s ‘Live On Red Carpet Africa’ host Kabs Haloha was named among the 14 African TV hosts who will be attending the 59th Annual Grammy Awards  that will be taking place on Sunday the 12th of February 2017 in Los Angeles, USA.

This is a big addition on the CV of the young budding presenter who has always dreamt to be big on the international red-carpet scene.His invitation was forwarded to his email by the Grammy Awards team and for the remaining 12 days, Kabs is preparing for this trip. Big congratulations to Haloha upon landing this mega deal.

The latest unconfirmed reports we have just got is that Irene Ntale has joined Daxx Kartel’s camp known as Wizard Order.

This comes a week after the ‘He Go Down’ artiste quit Swangz Avenue, there by appointing her elder sister as her new manager.

This news was broken by one of Daxx Kartel’s camp members who also confirmed that Irene has become the queen at Wizard Order. “Breaking news; Irene Ntale joins Wizard Order.” he wrote and also added that the artiste joined on her birthday which was actually yesterday.

For some time, Irene has been rumoured to have something for Daxx Kartel and that her song with Sheebah Karungi titled ‘Otubatisa’ was literally about him although there is no basis for that yet as the truth is only known by the two artistes behind the song.

So if this information of Irene joining Daxx is anything to go by, then we might have the two working on serious projects together including collaborations among others and who knows, this might become one of the best camps in Uganda.

More Woes For Jackie Chandiru

Just when we thought Jackie Chandiru’s life had stabilized, something else came up and it has everything to do with her marriage because the man she got married to is so determined to end things as early as possible.

It seems Mr Nol Van Vliet has not really enjoyed his time with his bride Jackie because for the close to three years they have been married, he hasn’t enjoyed their marriage much because only two months after walking down the aisle, the musician was taken to rehab where she was for more than a year and on coming out, approximately six months ago, Jackie decided to seek refuge at the Goodlyfe camp.

After settling in, the ‘Agassi’ singer tried so hard to get back on her feet and instead of going back to her husband, she went to Radio and Weasel who instead used her to perform at their shows in Arua and Gulu without paying her.

Because of this depression and disappointment, Jackie started abusing drugs again and that is when Goodlyfe sent her away from their home.

It is on this note that her family got her to a rehab centre in Bunamwaya and on learning that his wife was back in rehab, all he wants is a divorce.
