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.

Ugandan socialite and emcee ,Anita Fabiola has called out Ugandans for not being supportive of their fellow countrymen.
The socialite who has a podcast on Afri-pods, a medium that prides itself in telling great stories around Africa, finds it funny that most of the people that listen to her podcast are South Africans, Kenyans, Tanzanians, Nigerians ,among other African countries ,with Uganda having the fewest number of listeners.

Anita Fabiola
“Ugandans won’t support another Ugandan if they feel like they will be putting money in your pocket. They forget that if one person wins, the 10 or more people win. They are quick to support outsiders though. How are we going to progress if we don’t support and put each other up?” she ranted. She goes ahead to say that Ugandans are only interested in entertainment and gossip and have no time for developmental information.
Well  Fabiola does not mind because she believes its “Still the number one show on Afripods.”

By Our Reporter

TV star Casmir is planning a mega party for campusers. Dubbed “Party with Casmir”, it is slated for Sunday, September 30th at Wave Lounge.

Speaking to media on Thursday, the Campus 1o1 host on Urban TV reiterated that the event is a platform aimed at  bringing together campus students to socialise and network while also having fun.

“There are very many talented individuals at university, and we are giving them a platform to meet with colleagues from other universities so that they can network and discuss generational ideas while also having fun because work with no play makes one a dull boy.” He stated.

Doors will open at 7pm and the party will go on till late with top deejays like Dj Shiru and Ali Breezy on the decks to keep revelers dancing all night.

“It will be 10 hours of nonstop partying. Dress fashionably and come ready to have a good time,” he added.

Meanwhile, the “Party with Casmir” event is returning for a second edition. The inaugural edition was held in April this year at The Dawn Club in Kansanga. Following its mega success, Casmir says the event will now be held three times a year and there will be regional editions so that students at universities in the countryside can also benefit from this platform.
