They have been around for over a decade. They have managed to stay relevant in this turbid industry. Year on Year they find a way to get on our lips. They are the Kings and Queens of reinvention. They evolve with the times.

Gaetano

Gaetano was on our lips during the first edition of Big Brother Africa. He was welcomed by the biggest of numbers at the airport. People lined up to have a glimpse of Gaetano. Bebe Cool even composed a song in his honour. He met the President for dinner. Many thought Gaetano would not be around afterwards. Today he is still relevant, hosting a radio and tv show.

Bebe Cool

You can love or hate Bebe Cool but you can’t ignore him. He made news as an artiste who used to step on tables while performing. He then brought Zuena to our faces. Then he was shot. Then he was hit with plastic bottles. But Bebe Cool has managed to never disappear not even for a second from the industry pages. He is Bebe Cool.

Sylvia Owori

You could call her the Madonna of Uganda. There’s not been a single woman in Uganda who has influenced a span of industries. She touched Miss Uganda and it was the event everyone talked about. Then she brought us the African woman magazine. Now she is a presidential adviser of sorts. She’s been around, done it all, yet still relevant.

Sudhir Ruparelia

He has seen rich men come and go. Yet he is still standing. He crosses through rivers of trials and tribulations and always comes out stronger. He is the king of the game. He is the most relevant wealthy personality in Uganda. If you mention money, his name comes first.

Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia
Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia was named one of the richest man in Africa by Forbes in 2015.

Andrew Mwenda

The motor-mouthed journalist is the father of reinvention. What hasn’t Mwenda done? He personally helped Museveni and Kagame reunite. He singlehandedly broke some of the biggest news stories in this country. And he is the fastest speaker the country has produced. He is a moving library of figures. If you want to know how many kifeesis Uganda had in 1965, he has the data.

Mosh

MC Kats

Besigye

When you work hard alone, often times the world only sees your success when you reach the epitome of your career. Many times, a lot of people work hard in their homes, offices, studios and other places and no one notices or gives a damn until they make it and their light shines so bright that no one can ignore it. This is particularly true for Ugandan artistes who burn the night candle in studios to make things work out and release some of the baddest projects. Today, however, Galaxy FM recognized and rewarded some of these and they were ecstatic as they received their awards.

Top Kampala musicians flocked Galaxy one by one as they lined up to receive their awards for the hard work that is appreciated by fans and the radio station. Musicians, big and small who won awards at the scientific and online Zzina awards 2020 flocked the Galaxy FM station located on the Kansanga Ggaba stretch to claim what’s theirs, their accolades that they won when they announced the top entertainers in the fast ever Zzina Awards 2020 online edition of the awards.

From the likes of B2C Soldiers, comedians Maulana and Maulana and Reign, John Blaq and several others, the excitement was evident. And rightly so, because, none of these artistes was allowed at the scientific awards that were held online. We have the photos of them picking their awards. Check them out.

Check out the full list of winners from the very scientific Zzina Awards 2020 here.

Gabriel K will perform a livestreamed solo concert on Saturday 20th June in a new trend of online concerts being done by a number of musicians.

In what he has termed as “We Just Want Love” Concert, it will be an hour’s performance that will be streamed on his social media handles and a host of many other sites that have been engaged to carry the same.

In a twist that lends this an edge over the other concerts, it will also air live on NBS Television. This is a first as there has never been a live concert done on this channel.

Indeed he has been a man of many firsts from running billboards in the city advertising his album, running adverts on television for his music and now putting up a live show without charging for it.

Why does he do this?

“As a singer, I do not feel like I am working, I feel like I am experiencing life. I do it because I love it. So I’m giving myself out to the world and I don’t feel that i want to charge for my brand yet”.

This is quite an interesting approach to a music career indeed.

“It’s more about the music than the recognition, singing is really a basic need. I continue to sing because there is nothing else in the world that brings me that kind of joy.

So there goes, this Saturday stands to be a test of whether he has got what it takes to move an audience into believing his act.

With Two albums under his belt, a total of 34 songs and 18 videos, it is quite a big collection from which to choose from.

Sheilah says that Tinah has made it her life’s mission to tarnish her name and that of her family plus other celebrities because of money. This has caused her sleepless nights and even caused her depression.

“…you have made me have sleepless nights, gone into depression. You have also managed to change the minds of people on social media about who I am.” Sheila wrote.
