Musician and entertainer, John Blaq

By BigEyeUg Writer

Ugandan entertainer and musician Kasadha John also known as John Blaq has come out to reveal that he cannot and will never create a song for any politician or any political party.

Speaking in an interview, the golden boy from the East said that he would never let his reputation be soiled by self-seeking individuals particularly politicians. Asked why he took this direction, the Mama Bulamu singer had this to say.

“I want to clearly state that I cannot sing for any political party or politician. All these things usually come with a lot of challenges and disagreements due to the opinions different individuals hold. I instead prefer staying neutral and giving my fans entertainment through heart to heart songs “ the singer said.

The “Tukonnectinge” hitmaker also explained further that he believes he is surviving because of the support he gets from his fans and therefore cannot trade his talent for the selfish politicians.

Felista’s family rents a 200k house. Their debt sums up to 1.6 Million. They have tried explaining to their landlord that everyone is going through some financial distress but this has fallen on deaf ears.

The youngster is a young female rapper being raised by a single father who supports her talent. She goes to Kampala Parents School.

By BigEyeUg Team

The sudden breakup between NBS TV’s Zahara Totto and her boyfriend, Don Solomon Ugwu alias Big Papa (Oga) continue to surface with more secrets spilled regarding their one-year old relationship.

Issues seem not light at all as we may have earlier anticipated, for the motor-mouthed media personality after another video storming social media today showing a bitter fight between Zahara and now ex-boyfriend, Don Solomon.

In the video, the mother of four is seen ridiculously nagging and clinging to her boyfriend as she begs him not call it quits in their relationship.

She is later thumped to the ground continuously by Big Papa giving her no chance again in his life.

The fight is most-likely to have been a continuation of the leaked audio where Oga was hectically trying to conclude his affair with the ‘Uncut’ show host.
