1. Who is Paris Maggie Kiyingi?

Paris Kiyingi is an actor and a TV presenter. I’m also a commercial model as well as a business woman. I started working at the age of 17 at WBS TV on the Teens Club show. I joined commercial modeling in 2010 where I did adverts for different companies like MTN, Fresh cuts, Uganda Waragi, and Vienah Beauty products among others. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of science in business at Makerere University in 2015, I joined acting in 2016 and since then I’ve been apart of different projects in film like the Hostel TV series which aired on NTV, Dream America, Job line, Chronicles of the unseen, Balikoowa in the city, Intimacy and so many more.

2. You have been both a presenter and actress. Which of them do you do with much ease?

I do presenting with much ease since its not scripted. So it doesn’t involve rehearsals like acting. Presenting is all about being yourself and delivering a message to the people, acting on the other hand doesn’t give you chance to be yourself. You are wearing that character that you’ve been casted for and your representing another life, so you have to lose yourself. To me presenting is much easier.

3. What are some of the challenges you have faced balancing these two and how have you overcome them.

Honestly speaking, I haven’t found any challenges balancing these two. I love what I do and that comes with lots of passion.

4. House of Kiyingi, tell us about this.

House Of Kiyingi Limited is my own baby. It’s a consultancy company that does slot of agency work. It was a dream that I initiated three years ago. We do marketing, HR and PR duties for other companies. We also do events management.

5. Who are some of the people you look upto?

I look up to Oprah Winfrey in the social and business world. In the acting world, I look up to Gabrielle Union. These two inspire me a lot.

6. Is there a man in your life?

Yes, there is someone in my life.

7. How do you want to be remembered?

I want to be remembered as someone that had an impact on people’s lives. Most especially those that I happen to meet and they have special needs. I always give a hand in anyway I can. Because I know life might not be as easy for them as it is for any other person.

8. Any last words?

I love you everyone that takes time to find out what’s happening with my career. And thanks for following me on all my social media platforms. Love you right back.

Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things to recover from, and it takes time to finally come to grips with such brutal reality.

Weasel has moved on regardless, recording music as one man band and doing some collabos with fellow artists like King Saha, though he still has not been completely the same person since his music partner and ‘brother’ passed.

He recently intimated to Adelle on Kiss fm Kenya that it was really hard losing Radio. He stopped hanging out in clubs for a while because he could not bare listening to the music they had made together since it brought back very many memories that hurt him.

He also regrets ignoring some of his fallen friend’s phone calls, and leaving him without communicating his whereabouts which has taught him to treasure friendship even more. Weasel also says that Radio’s death helped unite artists in Uganda.

Weasel who is currently in Kenya recording a new season of Coke studio plans to do a special tribute to Radio on the show.

Weasel added that Radio’s death unified Ugandan artistes who had been beefing.

“When Radio was alive, artistes were fighting each other. But when he died, they all tried to come together and they no longer fight because most of them realised the importance of being united. That was a positive thing that happened,” he said.

One highlight that puts a smile on his face when he remembers Radio is when they received their first payment of USh1 million after their first hit song, ‘Nakudata’.

Weasel also revealed that he will pay a tribute to Radio with other singers on Coke Studio 2019.

“It is my second time to be on Coke Studio. This time teaming up with other artistes and paying tribute to the fallen soldiers like Radio and other stars,” he said.

He is also working on a new album that has 15 songs, as well as Radio’s album, which he left unfinished.
