My Culture My Identity

By Our Reporter

Uganda is home to numerous tribes, with so many different languages spoken, which makes it diversely rich in culture and traditions.  And now a new festival wants to celebrate this diversity while also encouraging young people to embrace their Ugandaness in a fun-filled setting.

The festival dubbed “My Culture My Identity” will be celebrating and showcasing Uganda cultures and traditions through fashion, entertainment and cuisine in a big fete slated for Saturday, June 22nd at the Uganda Museum.

The festival is organised by Culture World, a local cultural and fashion house, in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism.

“We can not educate the young people about their cultures in a classroom setting so this is why we decided to infuse the festival with fashion and music so that it is more attractive to the young people,” Lavinia Tuhimbise, the CEO Culture World explained.

The event which kicks off mid-morning will feature several activities including a cultural exhibition where food, beverage and artifacts from different cultures will be showcased, and traditional games like mweso and kwepena which will keep revelers engaged throughout the day. There will also be a fashion showcase where renowned designers will showcase contemporary African styles. The festival will be crowned with a music performance from Afrigo Band.

Meanwhile, proceeds from the festival will go towards supporting the girl child through the Kaleke Kasome foundation, an NGO tackling sexual violence among young girls and helping keep victims in school.

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
