Development Channel boosts Uganda’s Movie Industry

Published

on

Uganda’s movie industry still lags behind despite the number of local talent in Uganda. Despite all this great talent in the movie industry, there is lack of audience and investment to the film industry in the country unlike developed countries like the United States of America. It is because of this that Development Channel decided to boost the movie industry in the country. Development Channel provides the movie industry with the latest version of black magic. Only 4 of URASA Min Pro Black-magic 4.6k are in the country and 2 of those 4 have been provided by Development Channel to the movie industry.

In the words of former USA President Barak Obama, when America was founded as a new country, the Founding Fathers wanted to base the foundations of the country off of ideals. .The ideals made the country and the people thrive to become the World’s most powerful nation. These ideals were instilled through the movie industry in America. Hollywood grew to shape the collective thoughts and the ideas of the nation and the world at large.

It is through the same spirit that Development Channel has handed over 2 state of the art cameras to renowned award winning actors Mathew Nabwiso and Eleanor Nabwiso. Development Channel has also gone ahead to invite Nollywood’s famous acting duo “Aki and Pawpaw” to work with the budding movie industry in Uganda.

During the handover at Development Channel’s Corporate Office, the Chairman, Charles N. Lambert explained that it is high time that we created a “new nation” and this nation must be a United Africa where the next generation must higher its sights. Africa’s economy has been badly weakened for far too long and that has been a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Chairman Development Channel showed that the challenges Africa faces are real, serious and are many but we believe that with the empowerment of the film industry, Uganda and Africa is a step closer to becoming a new nation under the new ideals.

In reaffirming the greatness of Africa, we understand that greatness is never given, it must be earned. That is why Development Channel is taking the lead in earning this greatness through the Economic War.

We have always known him as insane in the family. He is fine and the next moment he is running on the street” a close family member revealed.

The relative also added that years earlier Akuze was suspected to have participated in the murder of his younger brother but could not be persecuted because he was known as a mad man.

Kampala, Uganda – Friday 21st December 2018: In this modern era, being able to be fully connected to the internet and having your phone fully charged is almost a primary need!

Ask anyone who holds a phone and their biggest fear is running out of battery on any given day. In addition, the need to be ‘connected’ is important to keep up with communication with business, friends and family.

Due to this, many had to move around with two important devices, a Mi-Fi and a power bank. However, thanks to MTN Uganda, the days of walking around with two bulky gadgets will now come to an end with the introduction of a two-in-one Mi-Fi.

“As part of our twentieth anniversary celebrations, we are giving Ugandans a perfect gift for their communication needs in the form of an exciting new device” said MTN Uganda’s Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Olivier Prentout.

He continued: “Our customers will now be able to stay connected to the best 4G Internet while keeping their phones powered up throughout the day thanks to the never seen before MTN 2-in-1 Mi-Fi and Powerbank.”

The device will enable users to keep up to date with all the online action, news as well as be connected with their work. According to MTN Uganda, the product is as a result of feedback from customers who complained about carrying bulky power banks and Mi-Fis separately, sometimes making their pockets and bags heavy.

The following are the key features of the MTN 2-in-1 Mi-Fi and Powerbank:
4G compatibility
Can pick 2G and 3G MTN networks as well
1.5-inch display
Can connect up to 10 users
5,000 mAh battery
LTE compatible

The MTN 2-in-1 Mi-Fi and Powerbank can fully charge a smart phone (as a power-bank) more than twice, making the device a must have for smartphone device owners, individuals working on the move or remotely, students and firms or start-ups that work in small groups or in close proximity who jointly need internet connectivity.

The device, which retails at only UGX 189,000 and comes packed with 3GB valid for 30 days, is now readily available at all MTN shops, Banana Shops, partner dealer shops and on Jumia online shopping website (www.jumia.ug). Major phone shops will also stock the devices

If you do not know about yesterday’s tweef between musicians Ykee Benda and Apass ,you are definitely living on another planet.

The two artists got into it after an exchange related to Fik Fameica’s flopped concert escalated into a battle of words between the two, pitting their fans against each other. The exchange kept going for a while, as twitter spectators had the time of their life laughing at all the banter.

Comedian Salvado doing what he does best- comedy.

Comedian Salvador however came through to challenge the two artists, asking them to give Fik Fameica respect for going all out and having the courage to put on a concert, telling them that until they put on their own concerts they should look at Fik as a teacher they need to learn from.

“My message to @IAmApass and @YkeeBenda  … until both of you do a major show… please give credit to @FFameica for going all out.. right now he is the teacher … esp you my kid bro A Pas … tusigale nga tuli bakakamu.. Do a show and let the masses judge.”

We hope this quells the situation.
