Last Friday, partiers converged at the Bugoloobi based Zone 7 to relieve their good old memories, thanks to the Johnnie Walker who sponsored the Back to Basics musical event.
Being the ninth edition, christened ‘Grown and Sexy’, the event proved that Old Skul music is still a force to be reckoned with in Kampala’s party scene. This edition followed the successful eighth edition that was held at Diners Lounge in October this year.
The event that kicked off at 6pm had an interesting cast of DJs spinning the disks; DJs BK (Ben Kuyoh) of House of DJs, Selector Jay (Joshua Baguma) from Guvnor, Boni (Bonfase Kifaru), Pita (Peter Kizito) and Val Tha Teacher (Val Okecho) of Capital Radio. The music selectors took revelers through the time tunnel; playing music that dates back to the musical decades of the 80s, 90s and early 2000s.
Despite the set-up of the venue including seats, there was hardly a moment throughout the evening that the crowd used them anyway. Every song that was played seemed to resonate well with audience who then responded by grooving and singing along to the hits. At some point, there was a sing out competition of sorts that attracted KFMs Sean Oseku. He mostly nailed two songs; 2 Pac’s Hit ‘Em Up and Wifey by the popular group Next, while the rest he only hummed along.
Val Okecho one of the organisers of Back to Basics says, “We are in the business of preserving timeless classic hits and bringing these to the fore in a party format whenever and wherever we can. Evoking good memories for old times’ sake is what we love to do, more so with like-minded people.”
Fans were treated to rarely played throwback hits from yesteryears with organisers hoping to take ‘sexy back’ to old school, and make it more attractive across the youthful and older folks divide. Ugandan and international old school hits previously forgotten, like Zigi Dee’s ‘Eno Mic’, Emperor Orlando’s tunes as well as Ragga Dee’s warmed the chilly evening.

When Philanthropist Angella Katataumba was invited to entertain special VIP guests at the second edition of the annual Black Tie Dinner she made sure she maximised on the opportunity by mixing and mingling with the guests most notably Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta. The event that took place last Saturday 19th November saw Angella put up a powerful vocal performance as she entertained the guests and later interacted with them.
She was alongside her father the consul to Pakistan H.E Boney Katatumba. The guest list which had over 600 guests also included high ranking government officials, The Diplomatic Corps and leading business communities as well as the A-Listers in town. The dinner was held at Kampala Serena Hotel’s Victoria hall and Angella was seen chatting away with many of them after her breath taking performance..
At the dinner, H.E President Kenyatta donated 70M UGX and H.E President Y.K Museveni who was represented by the Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Ruhakana Rugunda, donated 100M UGX for charity.
In her capacity as the face of the Uganda Cancer Institute in which she was recently appointed, the beautiful singer actively worked with the Diplomatic Corps to organise the extremely high-end function that raised over 350M UGX of which the proceeds of the dinner, will go to the Uganda Cancer Institute at Mulago hospital.

The most recent being a few weeks back, when she donated 15 special single Crank Epoxy Head beds to the intensive care unit.

He may have the record to be the leading footballer with most African footballer of the year, he might be the richest footballer in Africa and he might also be the leading scorer in Cameroon but the law doesn’t exclude him from anything as the latest we have is that Samuel Eto has been found guilty of invading taxes.
This comes after the treasury found the striker guilty of simulating his image rights of two companies, one Spanish and one Hungarian. As a result, Eto’o earned millions from his sponsor Puma as he wasn’t subjected to income tax.
With this, the prosecution has asked that the Cameroonian is sentenced for that length for defrauding the Treasury for almost €3.5 million during his time playing for Barcelona.
And if the prosecution is successful, Eto’o must also pay a fine of over €14 million for four counts of tax fraud.
Eto’o’s representative, Josep Maria Mesalles, will also face trial in the process as he knew exactly what was going on.
Eto is one of the most successful footballers on the African continent after featuring for big European clubs like Barcelona, Deportivo La Coruna, Chelsea, Inter Milan among others. Eto’o played 198 times for Barcelona between 2004 and 2009, scoring 129 times for the Catalan outfit.
He lifted the Champions League twice during his time at the Nou Camp and collected three La Liga winners medals before moving to Inter. The forward also spent time in the Premier League, playing for both Chelsea and Everton.
In July, Lionel Messi and his father were sentenced to 21 months in prison for tax fraud, although they were not sent to jail because sentences of less than two years for first offences are usually suspended in Spain.
Neymar and Barcelona are also facing legal problems for issues related to the player’s transfer.

Just after her traditional wedding down here in Uganda, Kenya Television Network presenter Joy Doreen Biira was yesterday arrested along with her husband for involving themselves in the most recent of violent clashes in Kasese.
The former NBS TV morning show host was arrested by the police along with her fiancée which she had just introduced after they raided her uncle’s home which is located in the troubled region.
It is said that the news anchor landed in trouble after taking pictures and videos of the Kasese incident that has so far left over 50 people dead.
The two had traveled to Uganda so that she could formally introduce her man known as Newton Kungu to her family in Kasese where she hails from.
Before her arrest, the Ugandan-born newscaster had put up a post on social media strongly condemning the attacks on palace of the kingdom that she comes from. However, the post has since been deleted.
After the arrest, social media went crazy with people from Kenya and Uganda demanding the release of Doreen, with some claiming that the arrest is against human rights.
Joy Doreen Biira was one of the first presenters on NBS TV when it had just started airing and she became a darling to many Ugandans because of her presentation skills, articulation and beauty, which perhaps made KTN offer her a bigger deal to seal her relocation to Kenya.
Festivals in Uganda have become the in thing usually reserved for Kampala city especially those that celebrate art and culture such as Bayimba Festival and Pearl Rhythm. In fact, such celebrations of art and culture have barely left the city confines. This is what makes the Milege World Music festival at Entebbe Botanical gardens exceptional.
Milege Festival is an annual event designed to serve as a platform for artists from different parts of the world collaborate and show off a spectacle of the finest performing arts across music flavored with modern genres like jazz, blues, funk, rock, dance, theatre, arts and fashion.
The three-day craze kicked off on Friday 27th with a number of great entertainers from a rich line-up from both the local and International scene such as Uganda’s best female Afro-soul saxophonist Mo Roots, Uganda’s guitar maestro MykOuma, Maddox, Giovani Kiyingi, Kenya’s Bengattronics, Pal Musica from Congo, Deena from Germany and wrapped up on Sunday.
Uganda Breweries Limited’s (UBL) flagship beer brand Bell Lager was the official beverage sponsor of this year’s Milege World Music Festival as they celebrated their sixth year since inception in 2010 under the theme, “Celebrate Africa”.
According to UBL National Promotions Manager Roy Tumwizere, the festival is one of the many ways the brand is pushing to discover, grow and promote purely local music, art and culture.
“Our brands are made to be part of celebratory occasions hence the decision to be part of this astounding event. Bell Lager supports and promotes purely local made music and this event blends well with our brand’s vision.” Tumwizere relayed.
Other activities that revelers indulged in included fishing, biking safaris, boat rides to Ngamba Islands chimpanzee sanctuary, a complimentary visit to Uganda wild life education center, indigenous games, visual art exhibitions, poetry, storytelling, bird watching, camping, forest walks, and so much more.
Notable about this year’s edition was the fact that it was dominated by many art lovers, delicious food and obviously great music. In addition to the celebrations, the magic continued to the beach as Black Bell treated revelers from the festival to a ‘Next Level’ experience of UBL’s newest beer brand. Black Bell is a beer that appeals to cool and vibrant people with desire to go next level.
Taking place for the sixth time, the festival remains a non-profit initiative whose main objective is to promote and grow the appreciation of cultural music in Uganda.
Club Dome is still the name Gulu University students and the general public still have on their lips after the Club organised gig left them thrilled and excited last Friday night. This was the first time the event went to Gulu following the previous editions they held in Bushenyi, Jinja, Kampala and Mbarara.
Hosted By comedian Salvado Idringi and MC Hype, the event saw performances from artistes Jackie Akello, BSG Labongo, Bosmic Otim, Kent and Flosso (Voltage Music)and Ziza Bafana who was the main and much anticipated act. The night also saw live Dj showcases from Djs Emma, Dash, Roja and Slick Stuart.
Below is how the event went through the lens in full colour
Club Dome hit Gulu for the first time with top performances from Ragga artiste Ziza Bafana, Patrick Idringi Dj Roja, Slick Stauart and Dj Dash. The anticipated event got all the Gulu party goers excited, Gulu university students were the most in the crowd. They showed up in jeans and some in shorts which have long since exited the fashion boards. Okay I get the fact that this was not a red carpet event but at the university going age one must be able to pay attention to their fashion sense because it’s at the peak of their youth, some of these outfits were as surprising as disappointing Some ladies however put an effort in their fragile fashion sense to look fine and they did.

One of the Gulu revellers got a chance to have an up close and personal moment with singer Jackie Akello who was performing at the Club Dome event held at Acholi Inn that got Gulu fans asking for more last Friday. The singer was the first performer at the event and she impressed as fans didn’t leave it all to her but joined her especially while singing ‘Apwoyo’.
As she concluded her performance that had thrilled the attendees, that’s when she spotted one of the revellers who was literally craving for her handshake and on realising, she called him on stage and the two had a cozy time as fans cheered them on.
It was like a 5minutes minutes affair that involved hugging, touching and holding where Akello was seen holding the guy’s back as he held her thighs. Mean while, all this was happening as Jackie performed her recent song ‘Amari’ meaning ‘I Love You’.

Tycoon SK Mbuga and his new wife Vivianne Birungi (now Jalia Mbuga) exchanged vows at Old Kampala and Kibuli mosques on Thursday and later hosted their guests to a lavish reception at the Kampala Serena Hotel. However what got the public tongues wagging was the wedding gown, people expected better, the sleeves seemed bigger, the small buttons in front which many mistook for a zipper did not look as appealing. For her curvaceous body this dress did not flatter her atoll.
Fashion critics on Facebook, twitter, whatsapp etc went hard on the famous designer and NTV’s Style Project host Sylvia Owori for that gown. She could have done better for someone who is a genius at criticizing other people’s styles. According to the public judgment the dress was a serious fashion miss. However Vivianne looked much better in her changing dress compared to the real wedding gown.
With all the speculations that have been going on concerning WBS TV and its employees, the dust is finally about to settle as reliable information has it that the station is soon going to be sold.
According to Kabiito Karamagi, the person in charge of receivership, negotiations are ongoing regarding the sale and that the station has not been bought yet.
“WBS has not be been bought by any investor, foreign or otherwise. What is true however is that I am at the tail end of negotiations with a respectable investor to acquire the company’s assets. Thereafter the future of the company will rest with its directors and shareholders. The proceeds from the sale of the assets will be used to settle creditor claims in accordance with the priority and ranking stipulated under law,” said Karamagi.
He also added that in view of the eminent transfer the company assets to the investor, some WBS staff have been disengaged as the company will soon have no business to run. “This disengagement of staff is entirely my decision as Receiver based in the realities of the company’s future prospects. This has nothing to do with any third party.” he confirmed.
Regarding the staff areas, he clarified that all staff have been paid their salaries and offered work assistance to facilitate them finding other employment. For the purposes of ensuring that current staff has the opportunity to find employment, an independent HR consultant has assisted with assessing current staff through an application process.
There may be an opportunity for employment for some staff and they will be communicated with in due course.
Last Friday night at Acholi Inn, Ragga and Dancehall artiste Ziza Bafana left his Gulu fans asking for more after performing at the Club Dome event, a gig that has proven to excite University going students and the general public across the four regions of the country.
Taking the stage at 8 minutes past midnight, the artiste threw the crowd into frenzy as he energetically put up his performance. ‘Gulu Naki, Gulu Naki’ as the attendees replied ‘Nalo’ were the words he told the fans before unleashing the package he had for them.
The crowd cheered him on as he sang songs like ‘Kidandali’, ‘Guluma Nasomye’, ‘Mavuunya’, ‘Katonda Wa Ragga’, ‘Friendly Match’, ‘Agende’ and ‘Tuli Majje’ alongside a pair of male dancers and one female one who just caught people’s eyes with erotic dance moves especially the men.
Before he concluded his performance, we were amused when he went down the stage and picked one of the staff members from E.A solutions which is a partnering company in for Club Dome identified as Brenda Ndekezi in need of dancing with her. To his disappointment, the light skinned sexy lady refused to give in although he dragged her on stage.
It’s reported that Bafana did not show up the recent concluded Mbarara University edition but Gulu fans have a story to tell.
Being the first time in Gulu, revellers with the majority being Gulu University students stormed Acholi Inn last night where the Club Dome series of entertainment events took place. This gig targets university going students and the entire youth on a bid to promote Club beer and other Nile Breweries brands like Club Twist, Eagle Larger, Nile Special to mention but a few.
The night’s performances saw Ragga artiste Ziza Bafana, Jackie Akello and Djs Roja and Slick Stuart thrill the crowd. On the other hand, attendees began trickling in the venue as early as 7PM where they were treated to the best of live music courtesy of Fenon Events and a variety of other activities they engaged in like pool, boxing , playing darts, volley ball, table football and video games .
All this was ongoing up to 8:35 PM when MC Hype and Dj Emma took to the stage, taking the fans on a journey of more live Dj mixes as Hype emceed along plus giving some people free Club beers. This session exited the crowd until 9:40 PM. Singer Jackie Akello did her performance next and fans sang along and danced to the rhythm as she sang songs like ‘Afoyo’ and ‘Samanya’.
The power of ‘disability is not inability’ was manifested when next artiste BSG Labongo took the mic and thrilled the fans before comedian Salvado Idringi the official host came cracking jokes and exciting them the more trying out his singing skills doing Busy Signal’s ‘Free Up Black People’ hit and later invited another performer Bosmic Otim followed by Kent and Flosso who did songs like ‘Tom and Jerry’, ‘Pull Up’ among others.
There was nonstop entertainment and last but not least was Dj Dash doing live video mixing and later on the most anticipated performer, none other than Ziza Bafana who appeared on stage at 8minutes past mid night with a lot of ululations from the crowd.
He performed ‘Kidandali’, ‘Guluma Nasomye’, ‘Mavuunya’, ‘Katonda Wa Ragga’, ‘Friendly Match’, ‘Agende’ and ‘Tuli Majje’ songs alongside two male dancers and a female one who wowed the fans with her erotic dance moves on stage. The last performers Dj Roja and Slick Stuart played music which the people danced to until late in the wee hours of the night.
On Tuesday 22nd November, Ecobank joined the likes of Airtel Uganda in partnering with Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) to support the National soccer team the Uganda Cranes with a 3-year sponsorship package worth UGX 450 Million.
Ecobank who came in as the financial partners, also jointly launched a campaign to raise funds for the team to comfortably participate in the African Cup of nations in Gabon January next year. The Cranes have qualified for the big continental show case for the first time after 39years.
The campaign dubbed as ‘Cranes Nalo Na Kaja’ is a drive that will see Cranes fans contribute to supporting the Uganda Cranes budget of 6billion that will cater for their travel accommodation and other expenses during the campaign in Gabon. In the process, the fans also stand a chance of winning 50 all expenses paid trips by entering a draw.

The Ecobank Managing Director Mr. Clement Dodoo while speaking at the press conference to announce the sponsorship and campaign said having been a football administrator himself, he was personally impressed with the way FUFA is running the football administration affairs and partly that’s why he was convinced to come on board.

News reaching our desk is that, ‘Mwoyo’ singer Maurice Kirya has threatened to drag DMark Mobile and one of the biggest telecom companies in Uganda, MTN to the commercial court and will demand sh500 million over copyright violation. According a reliable source the singer claims, MTN was offering some of his songs to its subscribers as a call ring back tune at a fee without his consent. This attracted several customers to its networks which earned the telecom company significant sums of money but paid him nothing.
The source said that Maurice Kirya himself confirmed that MTN was using his songs when he subscribed for the service and requested for one of his songs which was given to him after deducting his airtime as payment for the caller tune. After the confirmation, the singer claims that, he has lost market for his songs and is no longer called for concerts and performances because his songs can easily be downloaded by the telecom subscribers who are also his fans and this has caused him loss of income to a tune of sh500m which he wants court to oblige MTN to pay as general damages.
According to the singer these are some of the songs which MTN sells to its subscribers; ‘Misubbawa’ which was coded as 5022233, ‘Mulembe gwa Kirya’-5023730, ‘Die for you’-5023481 and ‘Don’t cry’-5023482. The source adds that he has already filed a case in the commercial courts and is in the process of acquiring a date for the hearing. Maurice Kirya has remained tight lipped over the matter but we will follow up on this and update as soon as we get details.

All is set for the 6th Annual PRAU Excellence Awards that will be held this today at the Golf Course Hotel in Kampala. The awards, organised by the Public Relations Association of Uganda (PRAU), will award top PR agencies, professionals and corporations that have excelled in the execution of PR, digital and communications functions over the last one year.
This year the PRAU Excellence Awards have been organised under the theme “PR Excellence in a Competitive & Digital World”. The theme captures the current reality facing many public relations professionals and agencies that have found themselves in a very competitive environment given the harsh economic times companies are operating in as well as the fight for more customers by these same companies.
“We have witnessed increased competition in the public relations industry with more and more companies keen to sustain a good image in the eyes of their stakeholders. However company resources to support this has not come easily with more professionals citing budget cuts forcing them to scale back on public relations activities or cancel them all together” said PRAU president Cynthia Mpanga.
Digital media has also been on the rise affecting the way the public relations industry operates. With the proliferation of social media, a bad customer experience can turn into a full blown public relations crisis thanks to citizen journalism that has given more power to the public.
However digital media has also provided faster and cheaper alternatives in promoting various brands in a positive light and therefore this has worked in the favour of public relations professionals. According to Paul Mwirigi, the PRAU PR director, “Social media has been a double-edged sword within the public relations industry. It has been a challenge balancing the positives and the negatives that comes with new technology. However it is here to stay and the public relations industry needs to come to terms with that so that they can make the most out of it.”
This year the PRAU Excellence Awards has received enormous support from a host of companies with twenty corporations providing in kind and cash support. “In a special way I want to thank all PRAU members who have ensured their companies participate in the awards in one way or the other. You are heroes and our association needs each one of you. Please let’s all ensure we participate and attend the Awards Gala” said Cynthia Mpanga.
The 2016 PRAU Excellence Awards will be presented in the following categories: Category A: PR Campaign Category which includes Best Media Management Campaign, Best Event, Best Crisis Management Campaign, Best Corporate Social Responsibility Campaign, Best Public Sector Campaign, Best Not for Profit Campaign and the coveted Best PR Agency.
Category B: Supplementary Category which includes Best Corporate/Online Publication, Best Social/Digital Media Campaign and the Best Young Communicator of the Year. Finally the Category C which is an Honorary Category (awarded by the PRAU Governing Council) includes the PRAU Golden Honors & PRAU Sheppard Honors. The People’s Choice Award is an open category where the winner is voted through the public.
The 2016 PRAU Excellence Awards submissions, which were opened on 1st October and closed on 11th November, 2016, will be judged by an independent panel of senior practitioners who will deliver the results with clear explanations for each winner, making it one of the most credible professional awards in the region.
A host of artistes are also expected to perform tonight.
Yesterday Thursday November 24, 2016 is the last day the Mirinda-Sponsored Fun Factory Comedy Group will be performing at National Theatre in their weekly comedy show – Comedicine.
The over 17 comedy members group will be preparing for “Five Star Madness,” their biggest comedy show of the year.
“We want to give our fans the best, so we shall take off like three weeks to prepare for Five Star Madness, the biggest annual comedy show in Uganda” Said Hannington Bujingo one of the directors of the group.
The show slated for Thursday December 15th, 2016 at Serena Hotel Kampala will have all the 17 members of Fun Factory perform.
“All the members will perform and all the content is new. Am talking about super content that has never been performed on any platform anywhere,” said Richard Tuwangye another Fun Factory Director.
Tuwangye also added that the show which will be sponsored by Mirinda, NBS TV, Capital FM, SMS One among others will have entry fees at shs70,000 silver, shs100,000 gold and shs2 million shillings for a corporate table that accommodates 10 people.
According to Bujingo, the weekly comedy shows at National Theatre will resume after Five Star Madness with a number of changes.
“We shall return to National Theater very different, we are going to put comedy on another level in thois country, just watch the space,” Bujingo added.

Just like any professions, singing is also involved with to much work and zeal. An artiste who does not work hard to produce for his fans will stay on the same level they are even if they have one or two songs. Therefore, it must not be taken for granted that successful artistes are because of luck. A Pass is one of the musicians who don’t like his music success to be connected with luck.
“I don’t like it when people tell me A PASS banange you are so lucky. Let me correct you, I am not lucky. I worked hard and I still work hard every day to improve myself and to upgrade what I do so as some go out and take beers and meet friends no offense but I can’t do that because the Fire to be successful burns inside me so I work, I celebrate deep inside of me after doing something great.”
Indeed A Pass’ success is for sure not all about luck but instead the ‘Gamululu’ hit maker has worked tiresly releasing more songs after his breakthrough hits like ‘Tetubatya’, ‘Tuli Kubigere’ among many others and like he said, he is still struggling tooth and nail to attain a higher position in the Ugandan challenging music scene.
One of the things the artiste decided to do was to release a song daily although we haven’t kept track but we hope and expect this to win him more mileage
“I am doing everything it takes to be successful in what I do and that’s effort, talent is not the main ingredient. Effort is so don’t call me lucky I worked for this.” A Pass concluded.
