Feffe Bussi now trend setter? Prompts retired Abdul Mulaasi to Rydim.




With the ongoing rap battles amongst rappers to prove who is better than who, the least person you would expect to join in has actually done it. While one would think the trending WHO IS WHO battle was amongst the young rappers that are fighting for supremacy, veteran singer Abdul Mulaasi has also released his version.

Abdul Mulaasi’s version titled Entalo Zabayimbi is another to join the already many challenges. In Entalo Zabayimbi Abdul Mulaasi seems to counsel the new generation on focusing on music rather than battles. This latest challenge leaves many wondering has Feffe Bussi set trend of sorts to the extent that even Kadongo kamu singer Abdul Mulassi is tempted to attempt?

Previously Ray Rachel, Da Agent, Bravel de Sniper, Jonah Steven while Kamenyo and Gravity anticipate to drop their versions soon.

After 10 Years of Cheating on Each Other, Onyango Gareth and Nickita Break-Up




Nickita Bachu celebrates her birthday.

Ex-lovers, Gareth Onyango and Nickita Bachu

By Our Reporter

Celebrity couples are trendy. Everyone loves to follow them and they do pay back in the same price. They constantly feed the fans on public displays of affection.

That was the case with the events gurus come lovers; Onyango Gareth and Nickita Bachu. Their love made many wish to have the same.

But behind the scenes, the couple was always on and off trading cheating accusations. For a moment, it seems as though they had decided; “well let us cheat and try to work it out.”

They both hopped they would outgrow the vice. When the baby came in, Nickita got a little more serious with the relationship and started insisting on marriage. “She really wanted this thing to work, if not for her, at least for the baby,”says one of their close friends.

Men age like wine, women age like milk. Nickita was not getting any more beautiful. Gareth on the other hand had transformed into the perfect hunk, rolling around with the likes of Bebe Cool and Rajiv Ruparelia.

“Gareth felt it was high time he upgraded to a woman of his level. Besides, he felt this whole thing was a lie, there was no more love. All they had between each other was a baby nothing else,” our snoops reveal.

When 2018 begun, it was high on Gareth’s resolutions. He was no longer discreet about his cheating sprees. He even removed the passwords from his phone. He had no fear. He was on the pulse.

A day to Valentines, Gareth came home after a late night of work and asked to have a chat with Nickita; “Hun, I think it is over. This is about me not you. I am moving on with my life. But you will forever be someone I loved and the mother of my kid.”

At this point Nickita broke down and pleaded for forgiveness but all this fell on deaf ears. “She is even still depressed. She wants to say nothing about this matter. She rarely hangs out. She feels like her whole future has been cracked,” her bff tells us.

Gareth on the other hand is rumoured to have moved on with a Buganda Princess, one of the Kabaka’s daughters.
