With several fans lashing out at her, Khloe Kardashian finally came out and explained why she photoshops her legs. The Reality star who had an accident when she was 16, explained on her website Khloewithak.com,
‘Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how fu**ed up my knees look. It’s because I’ve had reconstructive surgery, you a**holes!,’ she said angrily.
‘My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered.
‘It’s funny because everyone made a big stink about this Instagram photo because I Photoshopped it. Yes, I did Photoshop it, but I was trying to make my thinner leg look bigger to match my other leg!!! All I want are big, thick thighs and I hate how skinny my legs are.’
The 331-year-old further goes to say, ‘The reason I’ve had so many of these surgeries—and always wear a knee brace for my workouts—is because I was in a car accident when I was 16.’
‘To this day, I remember the exact streets (Ventura Blvd. and Coldwater Canyon).
‘I was speeding and the other car ran a stop sign. I was was wearing my seatbelt but the strap was under my armpit.
‘I was in a small Mercedes and it compacted in the wreck. My head and upper body went through the windshield and my legs were stuck under the steering wheel.’ she explained in detail.
‘I still remember hitting the other car, feeling the car spinning, and hitting a pole.
‘I was on crutches for six months and had a leg brace that went from my ankle to my upper thigh. I had a neck brace, burns all over my body and had to take showers sitting in a chair.’
During that period, things like showering were difficult for her and she commends her friends Malika and Khadijah for helping her out.
Khloe also wrote: ‘I had knee surgery the day of my accident and a couple more after that. Lord, help me! So next time you see me in a knee brace, you know why!’
The Kardashians were recently in Cuba for a vacation and rumor has it that it’s the only country that didn’t care about their presence. Everybody was just minding their business.

Despite all the drama that Pallaso has been creating around the media of his beef with Sheebah, he in a mocking gesture knelt in front of WBS cameras and pleaded to the ‘Nkwatako’ artiste to forgive him.
Pallaso did this last Friday while on ‘Turn It Up’ programme and mentioned of how he loves Sheebah no matter what because neither of them are defined by their mistakes. He also went ahead and said that his gesture is out of gratitude because of the history they both share.
The ‘Bubble It’ artiste further said that any song he will release about Sheebah will be about the great things they shared together.
However, the Team No Sleep camp hasn’t come out to say anything about Pallaso’s apology.
Sheeba and Pallaso were a dynamic duo behind tracks like ‘Go down low’ and ‘Mundongo’ among others about a year ago. During that time, they were signed to Team No Sleep (TNS) until Pallaso decided to go solo after he accused Jeff Kiwa, the CEO of TNS of killing his young brother AK47.
Angella Katatumba is not just an artiste but an ambassador who has proved over time that lives of others is her first priority even before her own.
The artiste’s generosity started way back when she first visited the dilapidated areas of northern Uganda especially Gulu and it was then that she came up with ‘this is for you Gulu’ project that changed many people’s lives.
After that project, Angella then started off with the ‘Let’s Go green’ campaign that created awareness about Uganda’s nature and she was doing all this while putting her singing career at centre stage and through her charity Organisation, the Angella Katatumba Development Foundation (AKDF), the talented artiste is slated to perform at the first ever United Nations World Humanitarian summit due to take place on the 23rd and 24th May 2016 in Istanbul, Turkey.
She will be entertaining up to 5,000 participants including Heads of States, representatives of crisis-affected communities, business leaders, Heads of multilateral organizations, international and national NGOs, youth representatives, military and academia.
This comes months after the Philanthropist donated to purchase a Phototherapy Machine and a Syringe Pump. These machines are already saving the lives of 60 premature babies every week at Mulago Hospital through her ‘Mulago Yaffe’ campaign which also saw her partnering with the Uganda Bikers to fundraise funds for the Mulago Cancer Institute.

The Qwela Junction Crooners edition that was organised by Qwela Band in conjunction with Nile Gold was last night held at Serena Hotel’s Victoria Ball Room. To many of the attendees, it was a perfect blend of soothing music and scintillating instrumentals. Having been hyped for over two months, it surely seemed worth all the wait.
The event started on time, as early as 7:25pm, under the co-ordination of the MC Joe Kahiri, the lead singer of Qwela Band. The talent immediately started taking over the stage.
The pioneer performer was singer and guitarist Herbert who warmed up the attendees with his live guitar playing skills. He was followed by Congolese-Ugandan based Rogatien and Charmant Mushaga who took the stage but before they couldn’t do anything, they first had a moment of silence for the late Congolese music legend Papa Wemba who passed on recently.
The Two later performed his song ‘Show Me The Way’ and revelers joined them as they mimed the tune as time for the main acts drew closer.
The MC later called on stage the 6 crooners that is Benon, Tonix, Steve Keys, Richie Kawesa, Kenneth Mugabi and Sam Kimera. Coming on stage to a warm welcome from the crowd, the artistes set themselves to do what was expected of them-to croon.
Steve Keys was the first to showcase and he was backed by the other crooners and later Kenneth Mugabi who wowed the crowd with his vocals as he performed ‘Kibuyaga’. Tonix followed next performing songs like his old timer ‘Beera Nange’ and ‘Ningyenda Yoona’. Sam Kimera followed and performed his ‘I Care’ song’. Kenneth Mugabi after took centre stage and wowed the crowd more performing ‘Naki’ which set the crowd especially women in frenzy.
Benon Mugumbya was the next artiste to perform and he was joined by the crooners as he performed his ‘I Hope’, before Tonix’ returned with the crowd-raising ‘Itaano’. After this, veteran reggae star Maddox Ssematimba came on to the stage, much to the ululation of the audience.
It was even more interesting how the 6 crooners welcomed him as they mimed his ‘Omukwano’ tune. He later took the microphone and performed ‘Namagembe’ then he went for a short break.
Revelers didn’t even want him to walk away, and chants of ‘We want more, we want more’ could be heard all over the hall. He later came back and gave them more performing ‘Omuyimbi’ and finally ‘Omukwano’, concluding the night, though evidently many were still yearning for more.

On Saturday The Land Rover Group Uganda succesfully held their first edition of the Land Rover Show at Katosi Ku Estate located in Mukono district. The event saw diffrent types of Land Rover cars tussle it out in various battles namely; The Course Race, Rock Climbing, Hill Climbing and Sloping.
This is how the event down in pictures.
Hard work pays. At least that is one proverb that Winnie Nwagi will always have in her mind. On Saturday, the gorgeous diva got her relentless days and nights in Studio rewarded as she received a new car from her bosses at Swangz Avenue.
The artiste who was signed to the record label back in 2013 has stayed loyal to Swangz, right from the time she graduated from the coca-cola rated next project the year before. She believed her time hadn’t come and it would finde her at the label. Indeed it seems to have come in the Pajero mini she now can call her own.
In a short video making rounds on social media, Benon Mugumbya, producer and one of the Swangz Avenue bosses, is seen presenting car keys to Nwagi when she least expected it!
“I can’t drive” were the first words that came out of an ecstatic Nwagi’s mouth but and she instantly rushed out to see her new car.
Winnie Nwagi has always been seen in the company of Irene Ntale, another artiste signed to Swangz Avenue but it seems her independency to party alone has just started now that she has her own means of transport.
It looks like 2016 is that special year for Winnie as her ‘Musawo’ song is already topping charts with other songs such as ‘Science’ alongside King Saha, ‘Katonotono’, and ‘Kyowulira’ among others also on heavy rotation.
After a troubled relationship with the controversial Katongole Omutongole, Titie may finally get a Queen’s rest. This is because last Friday at Theatre Labonita, her new man Deo Serunjogi went down on a bended knee and proposed to her, as she launced her Tebyansala album.
Titie had until then not come out into the public to denounce Omutongole officially. She was also shocked to see Deo proposing and this came after Kantongole had just pleaded to get back with her.
She accepted the proposal, and the two walked off stage and headed to the VIP section before exiting and in the process, the former Bukedde presenter was left stranded on stage.
However, we were able to snoop that the main reason why Titie fell out with Katongole was that she was choking on an abusive relationship, as she revealed to a friend.
“I’m finally out in the light and can now breath” She said, “I’ve been chocking, but now that I found new love, I am as free as a bird. Bye bye to an abusive marriage. Let me start a new journey, wont cry for wasted years” Titie lamented.
It was also revealed that it was Katongole’s sex scandal which even led to his detention at Kireka police station that was the final blow to their relationship.
The Ministry of Health yesterday came out with a document distancing itself from the rumor that circulated earlier last week claiming they had intervened in Carol’s travel arrangements to the US by refusing to release her VISA.
The ministry released a document saying the rumors are false and that the ministry is working hand in hand with whoever is in charge to see that Carol gets the treatment she deserves.
“The ministry wishes to dismiss false rumors that spread about the sector on the Save Carol campaign. We are not withholding any supporting documents that are stopping Carol from flying for treatment.” The document said.
They also tipped that the medical council board will be sitting on Tuesday and that all documents will be finalized for her immediate departure for treatment.
Carol Atuhirwe who has been suffering from malignant cancer for the last five years received public sympathy after her health issue was posted on social media.
Through the save Carol campaign that involved washing cars and much more, the patient received a total of 324.6million shillings out of the 270million she needed and on Thursday last week, she decided to donate a balance of 54million to the Uganda cancer Institute in Mulago.
With the kids being the majority amongst the revelers, yesterday the first edition of the Land Rover Show that was organised by the Land Rover Group Uganda successfully went down at Katosi Ku Estate yesterday. You will agree with us that revelers enjoyed every bit of the showcase from the start to the end.
From Land Rover ‘Discoveries’, to ‘Defenders’ which were the majority, Range Rover Classic and Sport, fans enjoyed how the rides tussled it out in the different battles that were there. The main intention was to taste the strength and speed of the cars muddy and rocky areas
The Race Course which was the first battle saw the cars being driven in a swampy forest and on a farm as they were timed. Next was the Hill climbing and this did not only catch the revelers’ eyes but also threw the revelers in frenzy by the way drivers were driving the cars on a steep hill as they cheered them on.
All cars that tried this battle made it to the top but after several trials. The Range Rover Sport excited the crowd more when it climbed the hill in a few minutes in one trial without scratching its tires, as if it was sloping down. “Nali Simanyi nti Range Rover sport yali yamaanyi bweti, teyina wetakudde wade”. one of the revelers said in shock. Literally meaning that ‘I didn’t know that a Range Rover Sport was this strong, I didn’t scratch the tires at all.’
The last battle was the Rock climbing where cars were challenged to climb a medium sized rock with one the front tires although one of the drivers identified as Kampikaho decided to climb it with one of the hind tires.
Attendees were also not left alone but those who afforded to pay 10,000 shillings were taken for a ride in the forest and farm in the Range Rover Sport. There was also exhibition from one of the companies Leigham Auto Parts which exhibited Land Rover spare parts
Nigerian star boy Wizkid has taken home yet another African artist of the year award that the Ghana music awards.
Having made collaborations with Drake and an upcoming one with Chris Brown, it’s safe to say that he has established himself as an African brand many international artists would like to associate with.
At the start of this year, the young singer became the first African artist to have his song ranked as no 12 on Fader’s 107 best songs of 2015 list. Ojuelegba was a song that rocked African airwaves and even here in Uganda, it took several hangouts and radio stations by storm. The song which was a major class act not only proved Wiz Kid’s immense prowess and tenacity but also the growth of the African Entertainment industry which is slowly penetrating other continents.
While talking about his greatest hit so far ‘Ojuelegba’ that has seen him climb the social ladder he said,
‘I knew it was a good song but I didn’t expect it to blow up the way that it did. My parents still live there. We have a house there.’
Wizkid is also believed to be working on a full album with Ugandan dynamic duo Radio and Weasel but the artists busy schedule has seen the process delay.
Leicester City’s fairytale run to the English Premier League title reached its dramatic climax yesterday after beating Everton 3-1 at the King Power stadium to lift the trophy for the first time in their 132 year history in top flight football.
Celebrations officially kicked off on Monday after their closets contender Tottenham Hotspurs failed to beat Chelsea in a match that would have prolonged the fight or at least delayed it for another week. The game however, ended 2-2 after Chelsea came from a 2 goal deficit with Eden Hazard equalizing in dramatic fashion in the dying minutes at Stanford Bridge to spark wild celebrations in Leicester.
The celebrations that went on throughout the week could not however, deter the determination of the team that has defied all odds to emerge champions with a meagre budget due to sheer determination, team work and discipline that kept the team focussed throughout the season.
So yesterday the team celebrated with the world when fantastic captain Wes Morgan and manager Claudio Ranieri jointly lifted the Premier League trophy as they completed the journey from relegation battlers and 5,000-1 outsiders to champions in the space of 12 months.
There were carnivals of celebrations with tears of joy rolling freely on the faces of excited fans at the Power Stadium and all over the world with millions following proceedings on Television screens as Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, blind since the age of 12, was accompanied by fellow countryman Ranieri who tried to control his emotions to the pitch 30 minutes before kick-off to fulfil a promise to perform at the King Power Stadium if Leicester became champions.
This could arguably go down as the biggest achievement and upset in sporting history. Congratulations to the Foxes!

‘Sheebah I still love you no matter what..You are not your mistakes and I am not my mistakes neither.
