This award was established to honour Komla Dumor, an exceptional Ghanaian presenter and broadcaster for BBC World News, who died at 41 years in 2014.

Serwanjja has overtime combined his skills and passion to help shape the African narrative through the very many stories he has reported including “Stealing from the Sick”, on car-fuel theft, on the Kifeesi crew, among others.

With his exceptional talent and eye for African news, he has managed to tell stories through the eyes of Ugandans. His art of story-telling has highlighted a desire to have a positive impact on Uganda. Previous winners of the award include Waihiga Mwaura in 2018, Amina Yuguda in 2017, Didi Akinyelire in 2016 and Ugandan Nancy Kacingira in 2015.

Maurice Kirya releases much awaited “Headmaster” music video. Watch it here!

Maurice Kirya

By Bash Mutumba

Maurice Kirya is one of Uganda’s music legends, arguably, and has been plucking strings on his guitar since the late 90’s. Many of the artistes that were hitting during the times of his songs like “Boda Boda” and “Binadamu” featuring Tanzania’s A.Y, have either quit music, been forced out by competition, or totally changed style, but the King of Mwoyo has remained true to his craft of Soul Music, staying relevant till today.

“Headmaster”, just like other songs on his albums like Misubbaawa, Mwoyo and The Book Of Kirya, is an acoustic driven piece, rotating on just three chord arpeggios, but with a very catchy vibe; and news of its video getting released brought many huge smiles on many a music lover’s faces. A song that talks about the need for safety by condom use, when indulging in sexual activity, Headmaster has rather deep lyrics; and can only be deciphered by either a geezer who watched “Ndiwulira”, a late 90’s play by Bakayimbira Dramactors, or a keen listener.

The video, shot in a school setting after the song’s title, shows creative dancers doing their thing outside, a teacher giving Sex Education classes to students and Kirya channelling his inner Guitar Hero inside a classroom; urging the ‘Headmaster’ not to forget his ‘coat’ while going about his business. It is actually my personal favorite off the “Free Dreams” album, but I hope he releases videos to the songs on the new album “Beyond Myself” a little quicker.
