Shooting a scene in the movie

All roads will this Thursday lead to Theatre Labonita in Kampala where the hotly-billed  Belgium-France-Uganda co-production film Papi is set to make its local premiere.

Speaking to this website in an exclusive interview on Monday, the film’s Belgian writer and director Kjell Clarysse said he was excited to bring the film back to Uganda following a successful run in Belgium mid last year.

“It’s a huge honour for me and my team to present the film to Ugandan audiences. We had such a fantastic time shooting here, and we hope everybody will get to appreciate the hard work the Ugandan cast and crew put in,” Clarysse said.

The 31-year-old documentary filmmaker and photographer is hopeful his debut feature film will open up doors for more Euro-African co-productions due its universal appeal and positive portrayal of Uganda.

Shot on location in Kampala, Brussels and Paris with a shoestring budget of $15,000 (about Shs 54.5m) back in 2015, the multilingual thriller revolves around its titular character Papi, a Congolese man who finds work as a boda boda rider in Kampala.

Papi’s life however turns upside down when he crosses paths with a troubled local woman and a mysterious European expat, triggering a series of gruesome events that will leave the viewer with a chill.

Congolese actor and fashionista Papy Tshifuaka leads the film’s ensemble cast in the titular role while Belgian film star Fredrik Declercq plays the villain. The duo is supported by a strong team of Ugandan actors including Rehema Nanfuka, Daniel Omara, Felix Bwanika, Wilberforce Mutete and TV personality Deedan Muyira.

Tickets to the premiere cost Shs20,000 and will be available at Theatre Labonita box office on the D-Day. Gates open at 7pm.

Diamond’s raunchy video with Mobetto was part of a movie – Harmonize

Published

By

After a video of Diamond Platnumz making out with two different women, one of them being Hamisa Mobetto surfaced, netizens could not calm down and this led to his arrest for indecent exposure by the Tanzanian authorities.

Turns out there is a ‘very good’ explanation for the raunchy video.

According to Harmonize who was present and was even spotted in the video, the footage was part of a movie scene.

Talking to Radio Citizen, Harmonize stated that the movie was to be used to create awareness and teach men who look down upon women their value.

The reason for using the bongo sensation according to Harmonize was to publicize it and he being a playboy having been with countless women, it would drive the point home.

‘’Walikuwa wanashuti movie ambayo inaelezea wanaume ambao wanadhalilisha wanawake. Sasa ili iweze kuleta attention, ile iweze kuleta item of business, iweze kuleta value wakamtumia Diamond kama mtu ambaye ameshaonekana katika mahusiano tofauti tofauti,’’ he said.

While the mystery continues to unfold, the Tanzanian police are still investigating the matter after his arrest last month.

Diamond issued an apology after meeting with officials from Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA).

The ‘Kwangwaru’ hit maker is making international moves after landing a deal to be part of the World Cup anthem.

‘’I had so much fun making the Coca-Cola FIFA World Cup™ Anthem “Colours” with Jason Derulo. Watch the lyric video and get #Ready to move #CokeColours 24 days left @Cocacola_Africa @CocacolaAfrica,” he posted.
