Have you thought about the children’s entertainment specially during this lockdown? 

This is sorted as a 9 year old girl from Mbarara district releases  her first solo video titled ‘NINZA KWEGA’ literally meaning ‘I WILL LEARN’ 

Murungi is undoubtedly talented  and picks inspiration from her mother Emily Kikazi, the region’s reigning Best Female Artist. Murungi’s project does not come as a mistake since she recently featured her mother in the trending Runyankore song titled Twerinde Coronavirus. Murungi brings out a strong voice and wonderful gestures in the NINZA KWEGA single. It’s not the first time she appears before a camera. In 2019, Murungi appeared in a song visual titled ‘Mwana Wangye’ where the mother was telling her to be a well behaved child. Now in her Ninza Kwega song, the young beautiful Murungi, like her name, seems to be putting into practice what the mother taught her. Murungi is a lucky girl. She is already signed under her mother’s label called SUPER RICH GANG and the song was produced by the best producer Deus Kabagambe of sure tunes and Video was shot by VoltFilms. The mother tells us that she has a full independent management under the same label led by one U-Turn Fahard who is an influencer in the region. 

The mother, Emily Kikazi, an artist, says she is aiming at a big brand Murungi not just a stage performing artist. Murungi is having a personal music coach who doubles as her producer Deus Kabagambe. In just hours, her Facebook page MURUNGI and Youtube channel MURUNGI UG have shown pretty good growth. I recommend this video for every parent and child. Good luck MURUNGI!

“Bettinah Tianah Is Our Lowest Paid NTV Staff,”Insider Spills Secrets

Published

on

Find out information about Coronavirus in Uganda. More here.

Although Bettinah Tianah is currently featuring on magazine covers and threatening to sue night clubs in United States, the situation seems dire back home.

Following Sheilah Gashumba’s expose on the low pay in the media industry, more beans have been spilled about the official pay for various TV presenters…

According to an inside source at NTV; “NMG introduced a new policy that one should be paid depending on the financial abilities of their show. Basically to motivate presenters to work hard at making their shows big.”

“At the time, Style Project , a fashion show on NTV has no major sponsor. Bettinah Tianah had first been placed on a 50K per show but she bargained hard and was raised to 100K per show,” the source reveals.

According to the new finance strategy, every show is pivoted to pay a presenter depending on how much that show earns for NTV. “By that time, Style Project was the least performing show. That is how Bettinah came out as the least employed person at NTV Uganda. Before it was Sheilah Gashumba at 50K. But since then, it is Bettinah at 100K.”

At this rate, we can understand why Bettinah would want to sue all those using her photos.
