Fashion aficionados were treated to yet another extravaganza of dress and style at the sixth edition of the Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards that took place on Friday at the Kampala Serena Hotel.

The event, a celebration of fashion in Uganda and across Africa attracted some of the continent’s top fashion designers and industry trend- setters who were a picture of glamour as they strutted on the red carpet to the Victoria Ballroom, which hosted the spectacular event.

Hosted by Kenya’s Anita Nderu and Tracy Wanjiru the Ciroc-sponsored event awarded those who are making their mark in the fashion world with the night’s big winner being Fatuma Asha who won the award for Fashion designer of the year (Uganda) and Saida Beauty who was named Makeup artist of the year.

“The fashion industry in Uganda had over the years not been given the respect due to it. I am glad that the ASFAs have changed this and created an awareness to what fashion has to offer and the positive impact it can have to the country’s economy,” said Brian Ahumuza, proprietor of Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards.

The fashion gala also featured showcases from some of Africa’s and Uganda’s top designers, including Nigeria’s Mai Atafo, South Africa’s David Tlale and Laduma Ngoxokolo, Uganda’s Anita Beryl of Beryl Couture, Alex Alecool of Alecool Clothing and Kkoolo among others.

The fashion extravaganza also features performances from Ugandan artists like Spice Diana, Lydia Jasmine, and the highlight of it all being Lillian’s performance attribute to the Late Mose radio.

Below is his speech after the official handover of the travel facility.

“It’s was a great morning as I presented a BUS to WAKISO GIANTS FC at the home ground in Wakiso.

Upon my recent travel around the USA 2018,

As I was on my way to Phoenix I fortunately sat next to one kind Man, As we chatted he took me though an adventure of his business. I also shared to him who I was which got him overwhelmed and upon off boarding the flight we shared contacts and promised to reach out each other again.

Yes we did when I met him again In Oregon, we talked about passions in which I told him of what I do beyond music. I love sports and – Wakiso Giants FC my team that I have loved and supported regardless!!

He picked a lot of interest and asked me what best he can contribute to us.

On more talk he mentioned that he had a bus company and asked Whether giving WAKISO GIANTS one would make a change. I was so happy and immediately reached the administration of this team because he only gave a bus to the team and wasn’t responsible to ship and pay tax for it.

Long story short the Bus is finally here and today morning I officially handed it to the team together with the FUFA president Mr. Moses Magogo

I am so proud that we have ability that we can exploit if given a chance. PURPLE SHARKS – Enjoy your bus LEONE ISLAND MUSIC EMPIRE” Chameleone affirmed.
