Joel Isabirye marries --- again

But why, why...why do all good things come to an end? Things like marriage, really!
We were there as Capital/Beat FM programs director Joel Isabirye wedded Grace Naisamura about four years ago. It was a lavish reception in Bbunga; we ate, drank and celebrated with them upon making a big step in their lives. They were so much in love and all along we thought it was bliss until last week when Joel got introduced by another girl, Sharon Nagadya. And we hear Joel and Sharon, who also works for Beat FM, will be tying the knot in two months time.
Sharon introduced Joel to her parents in Zirobwe, Luwero last week and the introduction ceremony was attended by a host of Kampalans and the village folks.
We're also told that, actually, Joel broke up with Grace over two years ago. Joel then drew massive reaction on his Facebook page when he changed his status from married to single about four months ago.
We thought he was joking but he's confirmed it with an introduction.
Joel was not picking our calls but we'll be open to his comments after this story.
Come on, Joel.

When Nation Media Uganda visisted Bududa...

On Tuesday, March 23 2010, NMG staff represented by Monitor Publications, NTV , The East African together with staff from partner organizations such as SPEDAG, AON, UCHUMI and KPI travelled to Bulucheke Camp to deliver relief items to the mud slide survivors.
20 metric tons of assorted items were donated, including blankets, clothes, mosquito nets, food stuffs, family tents, jerricans, basins and plates. The people of Bududa were so grateful to NMG for the support (Moral and Financial)extended.
Rafshizzle was part of the contributors - I believe many of you out there can still do something about this.
Keep donating, Bududa needs us.

D'Banj falls in love - with Genevieve

D'Banj says he and Genevieve Naji have great chemistry and that it's full steam on the love boat between the singer and the actress.
We obtained an interview that the Koko Master did with Nigerian blogger Stella Dimoko-Korkus and the reigning MTV Africa best singer revealed that he is in love with Nigeria's top actress.
"It's been long I felt this way about anyone," said D'Banj of Genevieve.
Actually, D'Banj has used Genevieve as the vixen in the video of his hit Fall In Love, which is well-known in Kampala and he added, "I don't know what other words to use to qualify my feelings but when you see the video, you'll know that it's not just a video, it was me talking to my girl for real."
Publicity stunt?
D'Banji had this to say; "I don't care what people say. Right now, we want to be together and we don't want to hide it anymore. I want to be able to take her out."
About marriage, D’Banj told Dimoko-Korkus: "Like I just told you now, Genevieve is my girlfriend, in fact I don't like using that word, she's my baby, she’s my everything and I love her. We are both very mature people and we are also very private people. There’s a big difference between our public lives and our private lives. We would like to take it one step at a time right now and would appreciate it if people will respect our need for privacy at this time."
Let's stop here, D'Banj wants privacy.

Bebe gets State House security

A few months ago we doubt - today we're convinced he is big. Or rather his shooting with a blessing in disguise of kind.
Because, now, Bebe Cool moves with two security guards provided to him by the state.
They are armed and move in uniforms.
They open the car door when he is entering and when he is getting out.
One walks in front of him and another from behind. They even escort his wife when he is home and she wants to go to town.
We were part of the overwhelmed group at Nakumatti Supermarket when Big Size came with his family and the guards.
A reliable source, then, told us that the issue of guarding Bebe Cool came from the top.
How we wish...

MTN's Sheila under Lionel fire

MTN is highly focused on the World Cup and don't even think of bringing any big artiste to Uganda soon.
That is how it is, at least according to the MTN Uganda publicist Ms Sheila Kangwagye.
Sheila contacted us complaining about the number of calls --- including his father's --- asking her to secure them a ticket to the legend's concert.
"People think MTN is bringing Lionel Richie," she said. "I'm tired of answering calls about Lionel Richie. We're not bringing him."
However, Sheila says she has also heard about the American R&B sensation coming to Uganda.
"True, I have a few people talk about Lionel Richie coming but like I said, it's not MTN bringing him," she added. "I hope he comes but people shouldn't connect his coming to us because not even a single person has contacted us about sponsoring that show."
We're getting nervous!
