BiG Brother blues!!

Published

on

denzelAm back!! But on a very angry note! Last week has not been a fair one to not only me, but also my beloved but seemingly god-forsaken country. Denzel got evicted from the house, Uganda Cranes got humiliated on foreign soil and I got unceremoniously dumped by a female being that doubles as my “very-close-best friend”. See, am certainly not the type that cries and mourns over spilt milk. And not because of my naturally inherited ego (…I blame that on my Pap), but simply because I am not genetically equipped to process such emotional nonsense! Pretty much the very reason I’ve swallowed Denzel’s premature booting out of the Big Brother house and dealt with my loneliness in such a short while. Pheeww! Ladies and girls (…men too), did you know…

…that Denzel is the first ever Ugandan to be booted out of the house on first nomination in the very first week of the inaugural entrance into the Big Brother house? How I wish the gods’ sanity could be questioned, just so I can freely, with utmost certainty say that the gods must be crazy! Goodness the food was just denied that special spoon of salt and spice and now it won’t have taste. See, am of the view that Denzel had bad luck. May the gods surely punish Mama Phina for failing to fulfill her patriotic duty where she could!

…that the moment Lugudde was called up at the BBA launch as the first male housemate, right there I knew the blues had knocked in. I mean, out of all the mainstream, upcoming and wannabe fashion designers springing up from this great pearl of Africa, Lugedde still had the audacity to show up at the launch with unfitting pants? Owori, Nambi and Dejak, just how did that slip through? Joram Muzira…I see you ducking! And Denzel? I think that suit you had on was way too mean to your waist. The thing was like a damn corset! Or was it?

robin kisti…Ug’s celebrated queen of the Ugandan version of the American accent, Robin Kisti must be the happiest Denzel hater at the moment. I bet as the rest went like aww at his eviction, she went like aha! For Robin, I was very much disappointed in her untamed emotional expression she showed in a facebook rant a while ago trying to de-campaign Denzel and question the integrity of the media house I work for. Just like a superstitious and suspicious house-maid over the neighbours affairs, Robin incited that Denzel’s entrance into the house was unreligious and shady. Hahaa…Robin kisti, since you are good at architectural designing of conspiracy theories for your fans, please allow me to engage in that self-indulgence. Just before you ask how Denzel made it to the house, or even perhaps, how Snoop Dogg changed to Snoop Lion, ask first how and when Robin Kisti got that accent. See? Everyone will have their own opinion. And in a country like UG, opinion is now like that Toyota ipsum! Everybody’s got one!

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.

American musician Beyonce takes delivery of her own church

Published

By

American musician and mum of three Beyonce reportedly purchased a church that went on the market in New Orleans. According to TMZ, the church which is over a century old was listed at $850,000 (N310m) and is 7,500 square foot has not been used as a religious place for a while. However, this is not the first time that Beyoncé has hit headlines because of a church. A few weeks ago, Grace Cathedral in San Francisco held its first ‘Beyoncé Mass’, with the service including her solo songs and Destiny’s Child anthems.

Reverend Yolanda Norton who organised the service had the idea to base the mass around the pop icon, explaining: “When we talk about womanist biblical interpretation, Beyoncé felt like a natural fit,” reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

“If we look at the trajectory of her person and her relationships, we can see so many issues black women face and how it can affect how we interpret the text.” The music for the service was predictably from the catalogue of Beyoncé and her former group Destiny’s Child. Songs like Survivor, I Was Here, and Listen were performed.

Published

By

PRETORIA – A South African Urban Design firm has just won what is arguably the most prestigious Industry Award in the world.

This weekend, the Congress of New Urbanism (CNU), based in Washington DC, has awarded NEW URBAN Architects and Urban Designers with the “CNU Charter Student Merit Award” for its book AFRICA DRAWN: One Hundred Cities.

Since 2002, CNU’s annual Charter Awards have recognized outstanding achievements in architectural, landscape, and urban design and planning worldwide. Regarded as the pre-eminent award for excellence in urban design, the CNU Charter Awards honors a select number of winners—including student winners. Winning projects represent major contributions to building more equitable, sustainable, connected, healthy, and prosperous communities.

AFRICA DRAWN: One Hundred Cities is a hard-cover collectable, co-authored by experts in new urbanism Gary White,‎ Marguerite Pienaar and‎ Bouwer Serfontein.

The book presents one hundred of the most connected and important cities of the continent – a visual feast of three hundred images and masterfully drawn plans illustrates contemporary and historical place-making actions in Africa.

The result is simultaneously an artistic and visually fascinating documentation of African urban space and a convincing analysis of its structure and morphology, thus providing a spatial point of departure for all interested parties.

The drawings are accompanied by introductory texts and, for the first time, render possible a comparison of the diverse urban form on the continent. The study attempts to provide an indispensable resource of spatial and figure ground patterns in the context of urban space in Africa

It is the fourth time that NEW URBAN, with offices in Pretoria, Cape Town and Stuttgart in Germany received a CNU award.

The jury for this year’s Awards is chaired by Maurice Cox and Jennifer Hurley, Directors of Planning and Development and Principal at Hurley-Franks & Associates respectively. The remaining jury members are: Antonio Fiol-Silva, Founding Principal at Sitio Architecture and Urbanism; Susan Henderson, Director of Coding and Design at Placemakers; Anne-Marie Lubenau, Director of the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence; Elizabeth Mossop, Dean of the School of Design at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia, and Russell Preston, Founder and Director at Principle Group.

African Drawn was a team effort between Gary White and Associates, Holm Jordaan Architects and Urban Designers and the Urban Research Group at the University of Pretoria (UP). Holm Jordaan and Gary White and Associates have since amalgamated to form NEW URBAN, a new firm with a collective experience of 80 years.

Says Bouwer Serfontein, one of the authors of Africa Drawn: One Hundred Cities and a Director at NEW URBAN, “We are delighted that this body of knowledge is recognised in this manner. This Publication and Award are a testimony to the fact hat students and professionals are unifed and inspire by a single and common goal – collating and sharing further knowledge about the African City.”
