On Saturday, Kingdom Kampala played host to The Abryanz Style and FashionPrenuer as well as the AsFA’s nominee release night.
In the audience, to witness a flurry of fashion-forward activities, was BET Award winning artiste, Eddy Kenzo. Clad in a flamboyant black and white embroidered trench coat, he casually strolled around the space in which many budding fashion designers had set up their master pieces. He was closely inspecting the different clothes on display, perhaps looking for something special and Unique, when his eyes met Oscar Kampala’s ‘Kings Man’ collection jacket.
He immediately sent for him, expecting perhaps to see an old man. Yet when he appeared, Oscar was young, a 19 year old Mentored by Abryanz. who’d only recently ventured into his own suits designing business.Eddy Kenzo later got the whole story, of how, like the archetypal business dare devil, a 19year old Oscar rented a 1.5M shop in Ham Shopping grounds yet he’d never owned a million shillings in his life.
Two months down the road, and Oscar had not gotten a single sale. Yet he’d applied for and gotten enrolled at Makerere University. He needed for the shop to work so that he could pay his tuition. Eddy Kenzo learned, that the boy, now only 19 years of age, persisted and started affording both the rent of his shop, as well as tuition, on top of the opportunity to show case at internationally acclaimed functions such as the Abryanz Style And Fashion Awards Nominee Release night.
Am impressed Eddy Kenzo patted Oscar on the shoulder, and shared words of wisdom.
He was impressed at how humble Oscar Kampala was. And how, like someone who’d been bruised, Oscar kept on referring to God as the source of all his simple wins.
“If he doesn’t divert from God, and religion, and if he stays the humble and innocent child of God that he is, he will go places,” celebrities were heard saying, in reference to Oscar Kampala he Might Be the King of Suits in Makeing.
Pen and paper: Kats, Fille back to working terms
We reliably can reveal MC Kats is back to working terms with singer Fille who also doubles as the mother of his last born. This was confirmed as the two were recently shooting one of their latest projects together and seems to be in very good moods.
Our suspicions were confirmed when we approached Kats and he confirmed they indeed were back together. “Fille is my friend and baby Mama and we both love music. We have a lot in common and that cannot be ignored” MC Kats told the website.
He furthet revealed the pair was working on an 8 track album called FILLE UNLIMITED and that they were planning a concert some time next year.
What goes round come round, MC Kats cannot go far from his love.

What went down at Roast and Rhyme Thanksgiving edition
By Our Reporter
Roast and Rhyme returned for yet another memorable edition dubbed Thanksgiving on Sunday.
The organisers say the event, which was held at Jahazi Pier in Munyonyo and sponsored by Bell Lager, was aimed at appreciating the loyal attendees who have never missed an event since its inception in 2016.
In the same spirit, Roger Mugisha, the MC of the evening issued a special call to October babies and those whose birthday it was so they could receive gifts from the organisers.
On the entertainment part, the show got off to a great start as singer, songwriter and guitarist The Body of Brian performed some of his new and unreleased songs. Afterwards, Isaac Rucci held the stage with many of Limit X’s greatest hits like Clap Your Hands, Miracle, J.E.S.U.S and Malibongwe (Come to Me).
In the heat of the moment, Patrick Salvador Idringi, Weasel and Jose Chameleone all took the stage and performed unrehearsed as they were not part of the event’s line-up, a feat which sent the crowd into a dancing frenzy.
The show’s headline act was Winnie Nwagi, who narrated the story of how her love for music began. She spoke of miming songs while in high school, then went ahead to perform Ne-Yo’s So Sick and Etana’s My Man, before being joined on stage to perform her Amaaso hit with Swangz Avenue label-mate Vinka.
All the performers were backed by the amazing Myk Ouma and his talented live band, after which DJ Crim took the crowd through the afterparty.
This was the last Roast and Rhyme Edition to be held this year, with the next one expected in February 2020.
