In the Ugandan entertainment industry, there are quite a number of single celebrities. These ladies are very beautiful, talented and successful. They are role models for many young girls out there, but for some unknown reason, they have remained single all year. Presenting the top five single Ugandan female celebs of 2016.
1. Flavia Tumusiime
The Beneath the Lies actress and Capital FM presenter may be multi-talented, but she has still failed to get herself out of the singles pack this year. She tops our list of single lady celebs of 2016. Her beautiful curves and sexy voice keep men on the edge of their seats waiting for the right moment to ask her out. But what is surprising is that she has never declared to have a boyfriend. All year, the NTV Uganda presenter has been seen hanging out with dudes like Gaetano, Brian Mulondo (Who is married) Roger among others. We hope she is taken off the shelf in 2017.
2. Siima Sabiiti – XFM
While appearing on Saloon talk, a local TV show that airs on Urban TV, some years ago, the beautiful XFM station manager and presenter revealed that she is not about to be tied to a man in marriage. She never hangs out with any dudes apart from her fellow workmates who have immense respect for her. Siima’s man is unknown. Sources say she thinks about nothing but her work and twitter. She is always tweeting and checking out the day’s trends online. She has not time for dating. Oh, she has a big crush on Idris Elba. We hope this changes in 2017.
3. Sheebah Karungi
This award winning singer is a true story of rags to riches. The Team No Sleep member who recently hosted fans to a mega concert at Africana has been single for a long time despite her success. We hoped she would find a man in 2016 but we are now in December and still no man. When asked if she is seeing someone, Sheebah just laughs it off and asks to move to the next question. We hope someone hooks her up in the New Year.
4. Ellah Nantumbwe
Former Miss Uganda and Big Brother Africa Ugandan housemate Ellah Nantumbwe has been single all of 2016. From the time she tried to date Tanzania’s Idris, the winner of Big Brother Hotshots and things didn’t work out, the beauty queen decided to give men a break. She has been single for the whole of 2016. She has been attached to a Rich Gang member Ddumba but she insists it’s nothing serious. We hope the Second chance star finds love in 2017.
5. Sheilah Gashumba
Since she became of age, Sheilah Gashumba has been very single. With all the boys who stalk her for her looks and money, the NTV The Beat presenter has turned them off and kept them at bay all through 2016. Her overprotective father might have also played a big role in this. We hope 2017 is her year to find Mr Right.
Also on this list is Winnie Nwagi, Judith Heard, Sheila DonZella, Judithiana, Cindy Sanyu and Keko.
