Your number one source of news in Uganda aka BigEye.ug has learned that 70% of Ugandan bars, night clubs and other hang outs are unaccredited by the National Council For Higher Entertainment (NCHE). According to the report from the Auditor General of Entertainment, Moses Muwanga, most of these bars and night clubs are offering illegal and sub-standard entertainment.

Some of the bars and night clubs that are unaccredited are found in Kyambogo, Kikoni and many other Kampala Suburbs. The NCHE confirmed that many of these bars don’t want to apply for accreditation yet they continue to exist, boring revelers with tired themes. Some of these bars and night clubs also allow in unaccredited ladies.

By Unaccredited ladies, the NCHE means ladies who will never look beautiful and sexy despite a man downing many a drink. These ladies don’t even have curves and big buns worth dubbing according to the NCHE.

However NCHE spokesperson, Natasha Komugisha thanked those clubs that took the extra effort to get accredited. These include clubs such as Venom, Amnesia, Ambience, Asylum, Guvnor, Panamera, Gatto Matto and many others. These are some of the few clubs and night hangouts that are accredited by NCHE.

Responding to claims of his bar not being credited, the owner of Twilight in Kyambogo was shocked. “You see it takes long to get accredited, the process is stressing, you have to put in a lot of money, you have to import beautiful waitresses from Rwanda since we can not get any from Banda, and coupled with all this, we just choose to continue giving entertainment without accreditation.”

BigEye.ug will release a full list of those bars and night clubs which are accredited and those which are not. Speaking to BigEye.ug, the Minister in Charge of Entertainment, Deejay Gero Karuhunger said; “it’s shocking that many bars in the city centre are not accredited, if a bar in the city is not accredited, then the situation should even be worse in areas like Mukono, Mbarara, Masaka and other districts.”

NCHE says it will now begin cracking down on those unaccredited bars and clubs with the help of the BigEye.ug media hype. Well, hoping they don’t crack down on Brian’s kafunda pub in Kikoni because we are certain, it’s not accredited. No way!

Why Are There No More Sexy Celebs in Uganda?

People of Fury and Wilder, you will excuse me but I have a very important question.

Who are the sexiest Ugandan celebrities today?
Why on Earth don’t I have a single celebrity I am crushing on? Doesn’t that speak to the death of this industry?

Imagine in those days the things Barbara Yata did to me. Just her name alone would cause you to start dreaming about the endless possibilities of life.

Then we had Karitas. Oba who uses to give these people names? There was a full thought process that went into these days, forget these things of Zahara Toto.

Now I hear even Lilian Barenzi abandoned us and opted for the US Navy.

Those days just hearing the name Seanice Kacungira would get you singing; “Tweyagale.” How do we explain to the next generation that Full Figure was on the top list?

What did we do as an industry?

Whatever it’s faults, WBS TV is the best thing that ever happened to this industry. It built it from scratch….

Someone bring back the good old days where Omwana would ask for meleva, you give her milk nabuuka…

Big Talent boss Eddy Kenzo recently called for a press briefing and surprised the media that expected he was announcing his usual annual concert but instead announced he would be holding a festival. It is the first of it’s kind from a Ugandan artiste.

A festival is an all day event that cuts across various activities from kid’s park, different stages and caters for all age groups.

Eddy Kenzo will hold his festival on the 28th of March at Kololo airstrip and he will use the same day to give back to his fans. While he will as expected perform, he will also have goodies to give to the fans like motocycles, helicopter rides among other offers.

Eddy Kenzo being the most travelled artiste in Uganda could have imported an idea that will so much be the new trend for big artistes in the country. For the past 20 years, artistes have been holding night concerts and obviously that leaves out a certain section of their fans, the festival is a much better option for fans to celebrate their stars.

Eddy Kenzo has invited all fellow artistes to grace the event.
