Hey hey Ho ho yo ho, there’s a new Captain in town, Captain Morgan Gold. Get on Board. Hey hey Ho ho
This week, Uganda Breweries Limited launched Captain Morgan Gold onto the Ugandan market at an exclusive invite only party on a Pirates’ ship at Portbell Pier, Luzira. The new expertly blended rum is an addition to Uganda Breweries Limited’s collection of Rums, whiskeys, gins, cognac, scotch, vodka and beers.
Extending its Captain Morgan Legacy, UBL’s Marketing Director Juliana Kagwa says UBL is introducing a new flavour of Captain Morgan to meet market demands that now favour different blends and flavours.

“In an industry like ours that is fast moving, consumer needs and tastes are constantly evolving. In addition, over the last couple of years, we have witnessed a growing consumer preference for spirits. We continue to listen to our customers and carry out market research to meet their ever-changing needs. The introduction of Captain Morgan Gold is proof of our ambition as Uganda Breweries to lead in innovations in our market,” Ms. Kagwa said.

The delicious, smooth golden rum with vanilla spice flavour comes in 250ml and 750ml packs and retailing at Shs. 10,000 and Shs. 30,000 respectively.
The launch was a beautiful night, with a Captain Morgan Gold cocktail in one hand, a generous plate of BBQ in the other hand and a cool breeze to wash it all down. The Innovations Team at Uganda Breweries LTD turned an abandoned ship at Portbell Pier into a rustic pirate venue. With red black and white dotting the ship, the Captain Morgan look was one to marvel at as guests walked in by 4pm. The launch was on a boat to fit the brand’s essence and association with Captains and Pirates.

Captain Morgan’s Global Brand Ambassador Captain David was flown in by the Diageo group from New York for the colourful event. He didn’t spare a moment to make his presence felt. His tall stature and flamboyantly elaborate pirate costume drew wide stares but it was his loud and animated persona that attracted revellers to dance and take selfies with him. He was the perfect lime topping for this cocktail pirates party.

The Captain Morgan brand is inspired by a legendary sailor who lived a life full of adventure and fun times with his crew. It is world famous for being fun and enjoyed around the world by young adult consumers dating back to 1944 when it was first produced.
A secret recipe of spice and natural flavours that are expertly blended with fine Caribbean rum – then aged – create a taste and colour for a smooth and refreshing tasting drink. The rum is best served in a tankard over ice, with cola and a slice of lime.

UBL continues to lead the market with new innovations including Uganda Waragi Pineapple and Coconut Flavours, Black and White Whiskey, Pilsner Lager.

Like the prodigal son, Raymond Mujuni has been welcomed back to NTV Uganda.

The investigative journalist who had left the Serena-based station in late 2017 to join the investigations desk for rival Kamwokya-based station, NBS TV confirmed his return to NTV on Tuesday.

“Glad to rejoin the Nation Media Group,” Mujuni confirmed on a social media. “I look forward to engaging, improving and growing the content on its platforms to reflect the needs of our audiences.”

According to word on the grapevine, Mujuni resigned from NBS TV over salary-related issues. Sources also revealed that the station failed to deliver on their promise for more resources to support his investigative work.

During his two years at NBS, Mujuni was directly involved in 11 investigative reports.

He returns to NTV Uganda in an editorial role.

What is the quickest way to ruin a good mood? Bring an ex into the picture. That was a lesson singer Chris Evans had to learn the hard way after he was almost throw off the stage while performing at Rema’s concert on Friday evening at Hotel Africana.

Evans had been invited on stage by Rema to perform their collabo, “Linda”. He however went off script, and changed lyrics of the song mentioning Kenzo, something that did not sit well with the “Siri Muyembe” hitmaker.

Rema was clearly not pleased with Chris Evans’ actions, and what he thought would please the audience quickly backfired.

She halted the performance and almost slapped Evans as he dragged him all the way towards the stairs leading off stage. All the while the crowd watched on with bated breath as he tried to apologise.

Although she let him continue singing, the chemistry between the two singers was all lost after that. Attempts to try to perform together were met with hostility and Rema was visibly livid through out the performance of the song. In fact, Rema did not sing for the remaining part of the song. She let Evans carry on alone, and later exited the stage to take a breather and make a change in a wardrobe for the second part of her show.

Evans performed just one more song after the incident and left the stage with embarrassment written allover his face.

Uganda’s favourite comedian Patrick Idringi Salvado showed that the perfect Valentine’s Day gift might not be flowers after all, more like an endless supply of rib-cracking jokes.

The ‘Man from Ombokolo’ had plenty to celebrate as he marked a decade in the comedy industry, and there to celebrate with him at the Kololo Independence Grounds was a mammoth crowd who got every penny’s worth at the Africa Laughs show last night.

Digging into tales of family, marriage, politics and memorable social interactions, Salvado was in his finest element, reminding all that he is king when it comes to integrating socially-aware comedy into his act. He certainly lived up to the hype on a day that turned out to be a triple celebration; he marked a decade of comedy, his 35th birthday and the fifth edition of his Africa Laughs show.

On a cool Friday evening, the stage was perfectly set for The Singleton-sponsored event. Some of the biggest names on the continent—Kenny Blaq, Eric Omondi, Eddie Kadi, and Alfred Kaingo—were the icing on the cake as our own crème de la crème such as Daniel Omara, Prince Emma, Ronnie Mc Vex, Agnes Akite and Madrat & Chiko took turns to send revellers literally rolling on the floor.

The highlight of the night was Salvado’s 45-minute show. The engineer-turned-comedian infused a sense of endearing jokes as he merged his visit to State House and meeting with the President into a rib-cracking buffet largely enjoyed by the fans despite their different shades of political opinion.

To add to the enchanting Valentine’s Day feel, Tanzania’s Konde boy Harmonize , Levixone , Eddy Kenzo and Bebe Cool entertained the revellers with love ballads that had everyone on their feet. This had been a triple-treat worth their time.

Here are some photos from the show.

The highlight of the night was when Rema was joined by her lover, Sebunya Hamza on stage while she performed her single, “Be With You”. The couple shared a romantic moment on stage, drawing thunderous applause from the audience.

“I was only seeing these things in movies, but now here I am experiencing them. Please let me enjoy every moment,” a smitten Rema told her adoring fans.

The show also featured brief appearances from other artists including Chris Evans, Ykee Benda and B2C with whom she has collaboration songs.
