Adele took home all five of the awards for which she was nominated–including Song of the Year and Record of the Year (both for “Hello”) and Album of the Year (25). She’s the first person to sweep the three top categories twice.

David Bowie went five-for-five from beyond the grave, while Chance the Rapper picked up three awards including Best New Artist. A host of winners spoke out against the Trump administration. Beyonce, who led the pack with nine nominations, won for Best Music Video (“Formation”) and Best Urban Contemporary Album (Lemonade).

“I adore you,” said Adele to Beyonce while accepting her Record of the Year Award. “And you’ll always be my mummy.”

But there were many, many more golden gramophones doled out beyond the ones mentioned above–84 categories in all. Check out the full list below, or on the Grammy website.

Like the prodigal son, Raymond Mujuni has been welcomed back to NTV Uganda.

The investigative journalist who had left the Serena-based station in late 2017 to join the investigations desk for rival Kamwokya-based station, NBS TV confirmed his return to NTV on Tuesday.

“Glad to rejoin the Nation Media Group,” Mujuni confirmed on a social media. “I look forward to engaging, improving and growing the content on its platforms to reflect the needs of our audiences.”

According to word on the grapevine, Mujuni resigned from NBS TV over salary-related issues. Sources also revealed that the station failed to deliver on their promise for more resources to support his investigative work.

During his two years at NBS, Mujuni was directly involved in 11 investigative reports.

He returns to NTV Uganda in an editorial role.

By Our Reporter

They are rich and famous, but the love of their life somehow continues to elude them. That’s a story that is all too familiar. We have seen way too many celebrities struggle with love. And, often, their tumultuous relationships are displayed for all to see in the tabloids making fodder for idle street talk.

That is what to expect in new TV series, Loving Tyra, that is now showing on Pearl Magic. Tyra is a successful musician with everything she can possibly need in her life; the money, the houses, the fame, the cars, the talent, all except LOVE.

However, in a twist of fortune, she unsuspectingly gets entangled with a fugitive and conman who is out hunting for his next victim. With her weak emotions and pressure from her fans and media, she ends up opening up to him.

She soon finds herself trapped in a web of love, music and mending old friendships, all that will challenge her beliefs and turn her life upside down.

The drama unfolds in a 13-part series that airs every Thursday at 7.30pm.
