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.

Gabriel K in Concert

Published

Find out information about Coronavirus in Uganda. More here.

By Staff Writer

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.

By Staff Writer

Sheilah Gashumba is known for her bravery and strong will to speak her mind about issues that matter to her. She isn’t afraid of public scrutiny and backlash as long as her efforts yield results.

Sheilah Gashumba

Today, she has come out and called out Tina Fierce on social media bullying allegations and has given her a maximum of 48 hours to apologize.

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.

She posted screenshots on her Facebook page showing how there is an orchestrated plan to have her as a headline for abortion rumors. There is also a video on her twitter account relevant to the allegations.

“…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.

Big Eye StarBoss Stuck In Ugx. 450Million Debt, Tears For Rescue

Published

on

Find out information about Coronavirus in Uganda. More here.

By BigEyeUg Team; In the face of being one of the most rewarded musicians by the President of Uganda for the past two years, Big Eye feels life is not worth to live.

Even not the recent 10 hybrid cows can console him back to his flamboyant lifestyle.

Apparently, struggling singer Ibrahim Mayanja aka Big Eye StarBoss is out of sorts after accumulating over Shs. 450Million in debts.

In a live Facebook video, the ‘Ndi Single’ singer has cried out his heart to the President of Uganda, H.E YK Museveni, fellow NRM members, and fans at large to redeem his current financial crisis that may ride him into jail.

The self-proclaimed ‘Star Boss’ says he purchased a residential house worth Shs. 460Million but he managed to make an initial deposit of Shs.60Million with hope of mending the balance in the shortest time possible.

On a sad note, all his plans were doomed earlier this year after being pelted with bottles as he was performing live on stage which pursued concert promoters to also shun his bookings.

Big Eye StarBoss

After mounting unbearable pressure from the bank over the debts, Big Eye’s hopes drained and he resorted to selling his own car which has not also matched the debts to date.

Big Eye also says he has defaulted additional Shs.50Million as rent for the past 6months.

He also notes that he has a limited grace period to make the full payment for the house if he is not ready to lose even the initial deposit of Shs.60Million.

I am left with limited time to complete the house payment or else am likely to lose even the Shs. 60Million that I paid at first,” said Big Eye.

He further claims to have not received any payment from the NRM political party despite offering campaigning services for H.E YK Museveni in the 2010 and 2015 campaigns.

As usual, the singer is receiving severe controversy all over the media as majority ascertain him to be a ‘mere beggar’ who is often drawn to seeking public sympathy, a mark he seems not to be bothered with.
