    We caught up with Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards winner and host Idris Sultan for a quick chat about his personal life and fashion. Here are the expects

    Who is Idris Sultan?

    I am a very simple person and Professional, who understands people the way they are. I know when to laugh and when to mean business.

    How did you join big brother and who inspired you

    Well I had a dream of going to big brother since like I was 17 years, but I was still under age so I had to wait until I reach the acceptable age and then I contested. I was inspired by Gaetano Kaggwa of Uganda during his time in Big Brother he impressed almost everyone and managed to get a girl (Abbie) from South Africa a thing which is very hard (He laughs)

    How did you spend the money you won in Big Brother?

    I have actually not spent it all, I invested it in my works especially my comedy career I also do some charity in every country I visit.

    Do you still talk to Ellah?

    (He laughs) well yes we text almost all the time, you know it is good to keep in touch with your exes you don’t know when you will need them.

    How is your Stand Up comedy career treating you?

    Well at the start it was a bit hard, there was a time I had to laugh at my own jokes at a certain show. I felt so down and almost gave up but Salvador and Eric Omondi talked to me and motivated me. At the moment it is growing so fast and the fan base is improving and people now laugh to my jokes.

    Who inspires you?

    I have a lot of people that inspire me, apart from my mother who is so obvious, Kevin Hart inspires me, Trevor Noah, Ellen Degenrous Prince and Michael Jackson

    Compare the Fashion here in Uganda with that of Tanzania

    Well this is a bit tricky, but what I know people in Tanzania wear really nice clothes though they don’t know where to wear them to. You can find someone wearing a nice party dress at the office.

    However in Uganda I haven’t analyzed well the fashion here but I know the fashion industry is advanced compared to ours Ugandans have managed to rule and claim fashion just like how the Nigerians did to music.

    What is your favorite clothing label?

    I have a lot of labels that I like especially H&M, Louie Vuitton, Yeezy and Victoria Secrets but I love it more when a woman wears it

    Alikiba and Diamond Platnumz, who is better

    Well they are both good and have different characters however Alikiba sings better but Diamond Hustles more a thing that makes him more money but they are all my good friends

    Who are the top 5 musicians in Uganda?

    Chameleone and Bebe Cool are incomparable, then Eddy Kenzo is also good, Radio and weasel and Juliana Kanyomozi.
