We didn’t think it was fools day just yet...
So what’s the excuse for the super lie going on here, Mr Anatoli Kamugisha?
Folks, we were very upset when we found out that the Vanessa Williams who is in Uganda is not the “right” one we all know. In fact, we're sorry for the first story when we reported that she is the one but it's because Akright Projects, who organised the event, told us so. They assured us that it was the right one but then our worry grew after we went for the golf event and they told us we couldn't speak to her because she was still busy at the hotel. But then we heard one of them calling another lady the name Vanessa Williams, and guess what...
The Vanessa Lynn Williams who sings, models and acts in movies? Nope! This was chubby and less brown than the celeb.
What made us even more uneasy is the fact that Akright Uganda had repeatedly advertised Vanessa Williams the singer-songwriter and actress as the one coming yet they had a totally different Vanessa Williams who is, in fact, a businesswoman according to reliable sources.
And to make matters even worse, none of the Akright guys was willing to comment about the story when Rafshizzle contacted them during the week. One of them had told us that it’s her “but she has just grown fat.”
But where on earth could someone bulge like that in a day? Do planes make people grow bigger?
Well, this is not new to Vanessa Lynn Williams because there is occasionally confusion with similarly-named actress Vanessa A. Williams, who first came to notice when she appeared in the first season of Melrose Place.
The two once bickered over the name but later came to an agreement and both starred in versions of the drama Soul Food (VLW in the film version, and VAW in its TV series adaptation).
But there is also another singer named Vanessa Williams, a gospel vocalist and then a businesswoman.
So, Mr Kamugisha, are you sure of what Vanessa Williams you brought?
And we remember you telling us that you are set to bring here R&B sensation Usher Raymond but do you expect us to believe you anymore? We hear, mbu, he is your friend.
Save us, please!!!
