Shena Skies

By Bash Mutumba

When 2019 started, Namagembe Shena aka Shena Skies Original, set a goal to write for every new school female artist in Uganda: from Vinka to Nina Roz and everyone in between; and all that she has achieved — and a little bit more. She has successfully made hits for Rema and Spice Diana, and has also written for male artists like Allan Toniks, Levixone; The Ben and Bruce Melody from Rwanda, and many more.

Born in Kawempe, Shena started writing right from her school days, and she always knew music was her calling, even though she studied Computer Science at Makerere University.

“Up to date, l think ‘Jangu Ondabe’ by Spice Diana has gone the furthest(among the songs written). I am incredibly proud of all my works ‘cause l put a lot of me in them. But l did enjoy writing ‘More of this’ for Rema Namakula with Slick Stuart & Roja, and the emotion and heart that came with ‘Bye bye X’ by Fille Mutoni was quite the story.” The versatile artist described her works with effortless fervency.

“l didn’t write Gutujja, people keep thinking l signed an NDA and l was told to not tell but no l didn’t. Or did l ” The Diva left me in unending suspense when I asked if she wrote the hit for B2C and Rema.

She also adds that she can never be paid enough to sell her style, but she isn’t complaining, and that those that like can go on to credit her in the song outros with “S.K.I.E.S”.

However, with all this success in the songwriting business, Shena maintains that she is a singer first, and then a songwriter, and would love that you check out her own music too on YouTube, like “Ayagadde Munne” which is currently enjoying handsome airplay.

Mengo Senior School are winners of the inaugural Uganda schools Debate Championship (USDC), a national debate championship that was conducted at St. Mary’s College Kisubi.

Mengo defeated Seeta high school to take the honors of the highly billed championship organized under the theme, building competitive minds for Uganda’s development.

Over the five days, students discussed topics from among others, the appropriate curriculum that’s suited for Uganda’s development needs to what a just tax system that can enable the development of Uganda’s SME sector would look like.

Organized by Debate Society Uganda, the championship is the climax of the society’s annual schools program which involves debate training and competitions in different regions of the country, from which schools qualify for the national finals.

This year’s championship convened over 200 students from 30 schools in the Northern, Eastern, Western and Central regions of the country. Students took part in activities including debate, public speaking and different conference sessions.

On the eve of the championship’s final, students had an interface with members of parliament in a session graced by the deputy speaker of parliament Rt Hon. Jacob Oulanyah.

Closing the tournament, NRM national treasurer Rose Namayanja emphasized the importance of debate in grooming leaders, noting that she is a product of debate herself. “Platforms like this (USDC) expose you to a diversity of opinion and perspective from across the country, which leave you a more knowledgeable person. I have been a debater since high school, and throughout my days at university. It is because of debate that I picked interest in national leadership.”

It was a fun-filled affair at the Nkozi bash as both freshers and continuing students of Uganda Martyrs University converged at the upscale Bbosa Hostel and partied the night away over the weekend.

The event, dubbed the Nkozi Fresh Bite Bossa Bash, an annual staple of the hostel, was this time around graced by DJs Ssesse and Alza, who had the campusers dancing all-night to hot music mixes, much to their delight.

The majestic hostel’s courtyard was centered by a huge white dome, inside of which was an air-conditioned ambiance, complete with a bar, dancefloor and seating area where some of the revellers were situated throughout the night.

Bbosa Bash is an annual event which usually attracts hundreds of campusers, some of whom come from other universities across the country, all in the name of joining their counterparts for the party.

Here are some photos from the event.
