We all know Bebe Cool is the Artiste of the Year this year.
But he wants to make sure we all know how laudable his win is.
Speaking to us through a web chat the self-imposed Titanic Big Size took time out from talking about Zuena’s beauty to the fact that he is number one in Ugandan music. “I’m a Ugandan hero, and I was man y years ago,” he exclaimed. “If you think I’m wrong, look back at the things I have done for Ugandan music.”
Well, yeah, we’re not debating that.
But then the contentious issue here is Bebe asking for a hero’s reception as he returns from the US ahead of his December 4 concert.
He returns on November 22 and he wants as many people to pour by the roadside as he drives from Entebbe to Kampala this Sunday.
“When I think about people like Inzikuru, Gaetano and Kipsiro, I just see my name in the middle there,” added Bebe, “I should be welcomed the same way.”
Good to know, Bebe, good to know.
Big congratulations to Chilli Galz.
They have gone and landed themselves a lucrative performance deal with Orange Telecom which will see them do gigs with different other artistes countrywide.
Sure, that doesn’t sound like huge since many artistes have got it before but have you got one?
That is exactly what we’re talking about.
Well, the all-girl group has so far accomplished part of the contract by performing for Orange in Gulu, Arua and four other northern towns and they will soon move to the west and central. The amount paid to them is something our Sherlock at Orange is still looking for but the rumour is that it is big enough.
Congs once again!
