Uganda, Kampala, 30th December 2016– Airtel Uganda has today handed prizes worth millions of shillings to lucky winners in third draw of their Tulumbe AFCON campaign. The prize awarding ceremony took place at Airtel Uganda’s office on Clement Hill in Kampala.
Speaking at the handover, Mrs. Remmie Kisakye Kakuru reaffirmed Airtel Uganda’s commitment to football in Uganda.
“Our support for the development of football in Uganda begins at the grassroots with our Airtel Rising Stars platform. That support is further displayed in our sponsorship of the Uganda National Football team; the Uganda Cranes who as you know made history this year by qualifying for the 2017 AFCON tournament.”
“It is upon this win that Tulumbe AFCON was built. Essentially, Airtel is rallying Ugandans to support the Uganda Cranes as they head to Gabon in January 2917,” she added.
Also speaking at the event, Phanindra Nichanametla, Airtel Uganda’s Finance Director congratulated the winners and encouraged the rest of the country to actively participate in the campaign saying, “These winners are from various parts of the country including Mbale, Masindi, Hoima and Bulooba, among others. My hope is that this will encourage everyone across Uganda to participate in Tulumbe AFCON.”
The day’s big winner, Ms. Joan Namazi Sengo took home the coveted ticket for 2 to an all-expenses trip to Gabon come January. Ms. Namazi is also the first female winner of the tickets to Gabon. Barely able to contain her excitement, she expressed her gratitude to Airtel Uganda and support to the Uganda Cranes.
This is the third round of subscribers to benefit from the Tulumbe AFCON campaign.
For one to take part in the campaign, Airtel Uganda subscribers are required to dial *162#, where they have the choice to opt into the campaign by selecting option 1. Customers will then be made aware of their target and will be required to recharge and use Airtel Uganda services up to this target. Upon reaching the targets, subscribers will receive 100% bonus, which, on accumulation, will be rewarded to them as airtime to be used for voice (prepaid), data and SMS.
Participants are entered into a weekly draw where they could win 5 TVs, smartphones, and an iPhone 6 Plus. The grand prize of a pair of tickets to Gabon is awarded fortnightly. Winners will be contacted by Airtel on 0752-600-222.

SHIFAH MUSISI RELEASES BEAUTIFUL NEW SONG WITH INCREDIBLE VIDEO.
Shifah Musisi is slowly but steadily making her way up the ladder of Ugandan music. Barely a month after she dropped a compelling song titled “Emirembe” from her second studio album, the beautiful songstress with a magical voice has released another musical masterpiece. The new single is titled “Ebilowozo” and is the true definition of good music. Shifah Musisi is a Ugandan singer, songwriter, guitarist and fashion designer who has been on the music scene for a couple of years. Her first album titled “Olugendo” featured songs like “Owoluganda”,”Muntumulamu”, “Olugendo” and “Mukyalo” among others, majority of which still enjoy airplay locally.
Born in Kapeeka, Luwero this songstress has all the makings of a star. In 2016, Shifah Musisi went on tour in Europe, performing in Denmark, Spain, Portugal and Sweden at numerous festivals. Upon her return, she embarked on her second studio album “Dark and happy times” from which her new hits “Emirembe” and “Ebilowozo” are taken. Ebilowozo, produced by the renowned Michael Fingers is simply a class apart from ordinary Ugandan music, from the arrangement of the instruments, the way it builds up to Shifah Musisi’s vocal delivery, everything about “Ebilowozo” perfect. This is the kind of music Uganda should be famous for.
Then there’s the video. If the audio sweeps you off your feet, the video just delivers you to a whole different place altogether. Directed by the talented Loukman Ali, the visuals make the song come to life with a well written story. The video interprets the lyrics to the dot, casting Shifah Musisi as a damsel in distress, waiting for the knight in shining armor to come riding on his beautiful horse and deliver on his promises of true love. Complete with scenes of horses and fiddle playing old men, the video delivers on all fronts.
The song has been well received with famous comedian and Comedy Store executive Alex Muhangi claiming it left him in tears and deserved a Grammy. For afro-soul sensation Shifah Musisi, if the first two songs “Emirembe” and “Ebilowozo” are anything to go by, this second album “Dark and Happy times” might just be the one that launches her to the top of the music charts in and out of Uganda. Watch the space.
