Kampala City socialite, fashionista, and brand influencer Sheila Gashumba is fond of exhibiting her ego without giving a damn about what anyone else on the other side feels.
The pencil-sized fashion lover who has been in disarray with different media houses for the past two months over her controversial Shs.50K paycheck revelation is up in arms with Radio Sanyu’s FatBoy.
This is after she played a tit-for-tat with former 88.2 Sanyu FM presenter James Onen (FatBoy), who was fired from the station earlier this week.
Taking it to her social handles, Sheila blew a strong horn of triumph for FatBoy’s sacking as she asked him to recall when she stood up for those who were being used in the media with little pay and he made fun of it.
Sheila says it’s unbelievable that FatBoy chose to strike over a 25% salary cut because of COVID-19 despite siding with the bosses’ repeated unfair actions towards their employees over the years.
“Says FatBoy on 2nd May 2020 but decided to strike because of a 25% salary cut because of COVID-19 yet he was earning an 8figure amount!!! Lemme even stop here, Tomorrow I’m waking up to listen to Patrick Salvado Idringi on 88.2 Sanyu FM,” wrote Sheila.
In FatBoy’s statement dated 2nd May 2020 that has been resurrected by Sheila, he condemned her reasoning over the media houses’ alleged Shs. 50K paycheck and advised her to focus on building her brand before she would task bosses for a pay increase.
“So, if a TV station offers you 50K for your first gig, take the money and build your brand. Eventually they will have t increase your money or better opportunities will come your way.”
“Sheila Gashumba is promoting a dangerous entitlement mentality that has afflicted a lot of millennials, unfortunately. Which partly explains why most of them are unemployed today,” wrote the Sanyu FM presenter by then.
Read FatBoy’s Submission to Sheila Gashumba’s 50K Saga in full:
I think the important salient point missed in the all this is that for a lot of people their first gig, whether on TV or anywhere, its important stepping stone to bigger opportunities down the road.
Its dangerous to give young people the impression that they deserve millions from the start of their careers because mbu thet “deserve more”.
If they have that mentality, they will never even get one foot in the door. Many successful people started by earning absolutely nothing. Then you build a name over time and take it from there.
So if a TV station offers you 50K for your first gig, take the money and build your brand. Eventually they will have t increase your money or better opportunities will come your way.

Onen is among Sanyu FM’s staff members who were sent-off by the management after they staged a sit-down strike over a 25% pay cut.
