CAPTION: A teenage Santa as a model (left) and the olden Santa (R) claps for Mr C. Jack Ellis at his birthday party in Kampala recently.
Santa Anzo has come a long way.
And her latest set of friends shows just how far she’s come.
She started as a waitress at Kampala Casino before having a brief venture into the world of catwalk though failed to impress.
Remember her as a tiny model? Thought not.
Well, it was until the new century that she hit the fashion designing scene and even started the Uganda Fashion Week that even attracted the attention of President Museveni.
And things have taken off from there and now Santa mingles with the creme de la creme of high society.
Recently Santa has been rubbing shoulders with Mr C. Jack Ellis, who is the outgoing mayor of Macon, Georgia. The couple met last year when Anzo had gone for the Uganda North American Convention where Ellis fell in love with her design works.
He started donning her attire and even took her out for dinner at P. Diddy’s restaurant in Macon. So, last month was pay-back time as Anzo hosted Ellis at a posh dinner at her Arapapa Gardens in Kampala.
But the democrat, who prefers to be called Hakim, came along with his Black-American girlfriend, so folks, don’t think otherwise.
