Speaking at the launch ceremony, UBC Managing Director Mr. Winston David Agaba explained that the new TV station was created to cater for the needs of Uganda’s youth, which accounts for over 68% of the total population.

“We have to reach and relate with our youthful audience. Within the UBC revamp process, production of compelling content is one of the key result areas. The partnerships we have made with local content producers have allowed to create a platform for them to grow but also to showcase their talent while giving our audiences the service and quality they expect. Magic 100 FM and Magic 1 HD are such platforms,” he stated.

Magic 1 HD is a youth-oriented TV station with a fresh new look boasting of youthful presenters and entertaining content packaged to meet needs of the youth.

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.

“Onabaayo” is a dancehall song, and its off his debut album, “Kireka Boy”. The audio was produced by Nessim.
