Life is full of twists and turns; one minute you are the hero, the next you are the villain. Filmmaker Stanley Nsamba aka Nes tells a touching story about this unpredictable life in his short movie titled “Crafts”.
The five-minute narrative tells a story of a young lover who lost his relationship on the way to finding his purpose in life. A 19-year-old Shafi who was dumped for his childish ways after picking crafts on his way to meeting a girl he was trying to woo, would later be filled with joy after the same crafts brought a smile to the street kids he donated them to.
The movie that stars Sharif Uzabumwana and Patience Aber as the lead characters is written and directed by George Stanley Nsamba. The movie also stars rapper Malx aka Malcolm Kawooya and a street kid known as Mujapani. The audio production is done by Urban Aksent Music (Lawraid Vybez).
The film is expected to be out in about two weeks and will be distributed to various international film festivals.
The 19-year-old Shafi meets up with Pesh to fix their relationship, but the crafts Shafi picked on his way instead become the subject of talk as Shafi is reprimanded for his childish habits. He consequently loses his relationship and on his way home meets an old friend, Malcolm, who seems to have progressed in life making him even more depressed. But it’s the crafts he gives away to a street kid Mujapani that make a difference when the kid sells them off to a passenger at a bus stop to raise money that he uses to buy edibles which he shares with his friends as Shafi looks on at a distance.

Continental socialite, Zari Hassan, has been quiet for sometime about her love life but she has decided to let it known who keeps her awake at night following her bitter breakup with Tanzanian superstar Diamond Platnumz.
According to the 38-year-old mother of 5, she has found a new man who accepts her the way she is and appreciates every bit of her.
Zari revealed to her fans on Instagram that she has found the one despite what people say about her. She said the man’s name is Mr M(not revealing so much at the moment) and that the two are happy.
Zari posted; I’ve been there before and it still doesn’t make any sense to me.
Yea I am weak, I need to accept, Wana know why? I give my all. I build my men, I’m not the type that takes, I’m the type that looks at what we have and consider how we can double or triple the blessings. With you I’ve learned so much, I appreciate life itself because of your humbleness. I always imagined my forever but didn’t have an idea what my forever looked like. 5 kids, other guys etc but you still found me the sexiest woman alive. Wooooo ain’t I so blessed🙏. I love you so much Mr M, it’s not the material things you shower me with, I’ve seen those and even bigger and better. But, its you, your heart, your whole being and how you make me and my kids feel. It takes alot of courage from YOU Mr M.. 5kids, 38, wow….. you Heaven sent babe, That said, I end here! I l you M😘”
