I rejected 15M from Centenary bank as a model, Yvonne Starr stirs Sheilah Gashumba’s Shs50k rant

By Reporter

Saarbrucken based Ugandan singer, model and actress Yvonne Starr has added salt to an injury reviving the Sheila Gashumba undr payment debate that was a hot topic earlier this week. Yvonne who before singing was a model based in Tanzania also shared her experience where she disclosed how she once rejected a 15M Centenary bank deal to appear on billboads as a model because she was paid way more in Tanzania and Europe.

Sheila Gashumba earlier revealed how she used to earn just Shs50k per show while still presenting on The Style Project show on NTV Uganda. Yvonne Starr’s concern however is that not only do other countries pay better but also men are paid way more in Uganda to execute similar tasks. Yvonne Starr therefore believes that Gashumba’s point is a broad one that needs a serious debate.

“I think Sheilah Gashumba raised a topic that is affecting almost every Ugandan not only TV presenters, however it’s a broad topic that needs a serious debate. Another thing also to consider is equal pay for equal work.”

Yvonne is currently living in Saarbrucken, Germany and over a month ago, she prophesied that COVID-19 will be no more by 29th May 2020. We still await to see if her prophesy will turn out true.

Best Ugandan TV Presenters of All Time

Published

on

Find out information about Coronavirus in Uganda. More here.

We set out to settle the big debate, of all Ugandan TV Presenters, who holds the mantle of the greatest, the best, the most formidable? Could it be Sheilah Gashumba or Zahara Toto. We focused on the social side of the Presenters. Pretty much, all the other categories of presenters do not feature here. But if you did entertainment, social life, fashion, name it all, we’ve come up with the ultimate list.

  1. Colin Serubiri (Jam Agenda)

If there’s a god of TV presenting, then it must be Colin Serubiri. Everything we know about presenting today, Serubiri did write the textbook. At his peak, he was having stints as a guest presenter on BET and Channel O. He built the template for TV presenters, from how to speak, how to stand, how to dress up. Serubiri was the man. He went from being a host at Sabrina’s pub Karaoke nights to transforming the craft. He brought the Jam Agenda idea and flew with it. As they say, the rest is history.

2. Straka ‘Baibe’ Mwezi (Late Show)

If there’s one person who built a loyal following, almost to cult-like status, it’s Straka. Late Show was the today’s equivalent of the Saturday Night Live. Although her life was full of drama, she did set hair trends every week at the Late Night Show. Most shows rock on Friday nights, but Straka transformed Thursday night with her show.

Here’s the rest of the list:

3. JK Kazoora

4. MC Kats

5. Douglas Lwanga

6. Barbara Yata

7. Calvin D’ Entertainer

8. Dennis Mawanda

9. Robin Kisti

10. Charles Oyimuke
