Miss-ug 2

When she got her new crown, most people went up in arms on Social Media wondering why the judges had selected a farmer, Leah Kalanguka, as the new Miss Uganda. A lot of spite and hate was posted about the beauty queen who has a passion for Agriculture, as most Ugandans on Social Media claimed that she was unfit to become Miss Uganda.

News on our desks, however, indicates that city dudes have now made it a point to keep her Facebook inbox busy and send her friend requests every minute in a bid to get close to the beauty queen from Iganga.

Leah, who attended Nakasero Primary School, Trinity College, Nabbingo, and Makerere University for a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering, has revealed that she is tired of the numerous requests coming from city dudes and mostly guys from Makerere Univeristy after she was crowned Miss Uganda.

“The past two days have been busy; I have been moving around, doing lots of interviews and meeting new people. I am suddenly overwhelmed by friend requests on my Facebook page,” she told an interviewer recently.

It is shocking that the girl who was hated so much on Social Media is now the most sought after by city dudes. Leah also noted that she doesn’t expect everyone to love her.

“I haven’t read those comments. I have just heard from people about all this negative feedback coming in. I don’t expect everyone to love me. There will always be the negative feedback, but at the end of the day, it’s what makes me stronger. People have freedom of speech. I love and believe in myself, and that is all that matters,” she said.

By Our Reporter

As Dance With Valentino reality show premieres this month, prepare to get blown away by the epic storytelling done through dance on the show. But first, you’re going to get addicted to the show’s theme song which dropped on Wednesday.

The producers of Dance with Valentino tapped the enchanting vocals of two stunning singers; Ariho Esther aka Essie and Daniel Kawesa for the song which was produced and mastered by Big Nash.

Ariho Esther Yvonne aka Essie

Who is Ariho Esther?

Ariho Esther Yvonne aka Essie is a 27-year-old Ugandan singer who is strongly passionate about music in its truest and rawest form and is currently pursuing a diploma at Africa Institute of music. I started singing as soon as I could talk but my experience of live performance with bands started in 2013. I have in my many years of performing with different bands worked with artistes like Myko Ouma, Lillian Mbabazi, Ykee Benda and Fik Fameika. I am currently part of a band called A Ka Dope.

Describe your experience working on this project

Working on the DWV sound track was such an amazing experience. The energy that was flowing in the studio was awe-inspiring. So many creative minds and I was honoured to be singing with a massively talented singer, Daniel Kawesa and to have a legendary producer Big Nash guide us through the session. I loved the fact that Valentino and the composer of the song were around and easily communicated what their idea of the song was without stopping Daniel and I from adding our identities as musicians to it.

Daniel Kawesa

Who is Daniel Kawesa?

Daniel is a recording artist, who is so passionate about music. Away from music, he is a chef. I started singing in 1998 – 2012 between church and school, but professionally I started in 2013 after winning Coca Cola Rated Next, a talent search.

Describe your experience working on this project

It was an exciting opportunity especially knowing that behind the art there are so many powerful stories. I was privileged to work with very talented people in the industry and building our local content. I pray this show helps us appreciate our Ugandaness.

Dance With Valentino is a new reality dance TV show set to be hosted by renowned Latin and ballroom dancer Valentino Richard Kabenge.

Listen to the soundtrack below.

PUBLIC APOLOGY

On Monday June 29, 2020 during the Bwakedde – Morning show hosted on Star TV, I made utterances against Artiste Lydia Jazmine that seem degrading, appalling and regrettable.

Am deeply sorry for offending you (Lydia Jazmine).

As my followers know, I never intend to attack any person(s) in any fraternity but sometimes we get things hastily and spectacularly wrong as it befell with Lydia Jazmine.

There is nothing more important to me than a thriving music industry and is why I tiressly contribute to the fraternity though this time round it’s regrettable that I attacked and offended the Person of Lydia Jazmine.

Jazmine is incredibly talented, humble and likeable and honestly, deep down I would never wish bad things to her or any one for that matter and is why I wish to extend a genuine and public apology to Ms. Lydia Jazmine, her family, management, the music fraternity and all Ugandans for the harm caused.

In this business, all we can do is own up to our mistakes when they happen.

God bless you.

By BigEyeUg Team

Lugaflow rappers, Gravity Omutujju and G.N.L Zamba are locked in a bitter feud.

It all started after Gravity Omutujju, in a local TV interview, revealed that he has never been inspired by GNL Zamba, like most of his peers.

Gravity added that he solely believed in himself and this has lifted him to tremendous achievements in the music industry.

Gravity Omutujju

This did not please GNL Zamba.

The ‘Koi Koi’ hitmaker immediately rushed to his social media to express his displeasure with Gravity’s sentiments.

He claimed to have bridged the gap between the young and old crowds in Hiphop with his songs like ‘Ani Yali Amanyi’, which inspired many young rappers to join the Hiphop game.

Inspirational lesson: When I wrote Ani Yali Amanyi verses and sampled the Ugandan legend Elly Wamala to bridge the gap of old and young crowds in Hiphop. It brought success and introduced Hiphop to more masses,” stated Zamba.

GNL further stung Gravity Omutujju saying he tried to copy his success formulae.

4 years after I had showed that the formulae worked, EMPTY TIN also got inspired and made Walumbe Zaya sampling Job Kafeero! I was inspired by Elly, and I give credit. Does Empty tin give credit to anyone that is why ka industry Kaffe tekakula.

Ekko kumitima jabantu abamu!!!! Not letting success build upon success and respect but bickering being small minded!!!” he added.

On learning about Zamba’s words, Gravity also went to social media and hit back.

G.N.L Zamba

He blasted Zamba saying he was out of his mind due to drug influence.

Ssebbo Nsimbi: I heard u say. when u sampled Elly wamala’s (R.I.P) ani yali amannyi? U credited him on the song and when I sampled Paul Kafero’s R.I.P) WALUMBE ZAYA (a classic) I never credited him, were u sober posting this? is it fear that takes over u whenever u listen to the masterpiece or is it the smoke effect that turns you deaf so u don’t hear ma credits? ?? That’s why I don’t smoke nor booze so to keep my mind sober n fresh like a newborn and put my ear on da ground,” Gravity stated.

Gravity further advised him to stop using intoxicants.

First take cigarettes off yo ears ssebo (I hear its a habbit) if u were looking for relevancy you could have called me nenkuwa plan,” Gravity added.

The ‘Bitandise’ singer further revealed how GNL’s generation of fans is now mature with enough worries on how to survive amdist the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown after losing their jobs.

Even the generation yo used to sing for are now grown n busy in worries of their dieing businesses that the government closed during the pandemic. Mr try some other business if u had marital misunderstandings with yo HUSBAND. (go to court and get yo share) but musically you need to consultant me.

GNL Zamba,  born Ernest Nsimbi, began his professional music career in 2007, after completing a bachelor’s degree in environmental science at Makerere University.

He has enjoyed an illustrious music career, scooping numerous music award nominations and accolades with several hit songs to his name like; Koi Koi, Kikankane, Sesetula, Soda, and many more. He is credited for popularizing ‘Luga-flow’ rap.
