Nawanyanga Gloria and Nyanzi Huzairu emerged the ultimate winners in the Y+ Beauty pageant, which is geared towards ending stigma and discrimination of young people living with HIV/AIDS.

They were announced at a ceremony held on Saturday evening at Hotel Africana where Nawanyanga Gloria from Kampala was crowned Miss Y+ while Nyanzi Huzairu from Jinja was crowned Mr Y+, each walking away with a full year scholarship by Uganda Network of Young People Living with HIV & AIDS (UNYPA).

Meanwhile, Osuru Samantha from Arua and Kyobutungi Bonitah from Kampala were first and second runners-up for Miss Y+ respectively. On the other hand, Lubangakene Godfrey from Kampala was first runner-up and Katuma Kizito from Luweero was second runner-up for Mr Y+.

The winners were selected after impressing a panel of judges with their different showcases that included fashion and talent.

Speaking at the ceremony, Ms. Evelyn Chemti, a representative from the Ministry of Health commended UNYPA for the initiative that encourages young people to meaningfully participate in the struggle against HIV/AIDS and also reaffirmed government’s commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS.

“As government, we are committed to ensuring that we implement interventions, in partnership with different stakeholders, to make sure that young people who are HIV negative remain negative while those who are HIV positive are provided with the care and support they need to be able to live a healthy life and reach their full potential.” She stated.

This year’s edition was held under the theme, “Hands Up for HIV Prevention”.

When musician Ykee Benda featured Jason Derulo on the World Cup song, “Colours”, word started going round that he would perform at the World Cup closing ceremony. However, as d-day drew closer, it certainly became apparent that he was not on the line up of performing artistes.

Although he watched the World Cup final live in Russia, he has not escaped criticism and mockery from a section of the public. He has now finally come out to clarify on what happened. “I did not perform at the World Cup closing ceremony because of contractual limitations. I was invited by Coca-Cola, but the World Cup is organised by FIFA who had their own plans.”

“But even when I did not perform at the finals, it was still a win for Uganda because I raised the Ugandan flag high. It was also a dream come true for me to watch the World Cup finals live because I am a big football fan.”

Titled “Onabaayo”, the video was officially released at a premiere event held at Fame lounge on Friday afternoon. Speaking at the event, he revealed that the new video was shot in South Africa by Nigerian video director Sesan which cost him US$ 15,000(which is approximately Ugx 52 million).

“I am excited to be unveiling my new video,” he said. “I wanted to give my fans something different. And because most of the beautiful locations around town have all been used before, I decided to shoot my new video in South Africa.”

“I shot this video in Johannesburg and it cost me US$ 15,000. I believe it will give me a competitive edge over other top musicians on the continent.” He added.
