Speaking about the talent search show recently, the man from Ombokolo said that he was very disappointed in the majority of young Ugandan comedians most of whom he says are very vulgar.

‘We selected 65 comedians out of 2,000 applicants for the comic show on NBS during the auditions in Naguru because the biggest number was very vulgar,’ Salvado said.

The comedian went on to say; ‘It was not an easy exercise but we managed to pick out the best and now they will air on TV and show off what they have. We are moving onto next audition where we shall be looking for 22 out of the 65 that have been selected. These will be the semi finalists.’

According to Salvado, the semi finalists will go for the knockouts where voting will eliminate whoever doesn’t cut it on the spot This will happen at Silver Springs Hotel in Bugolobi.

We will keep you posted.

While addressing media at MultiChoice Uganda Head office, Albert Nga, Marketing Manager MultiChoice Uganda said, “We are excited to introduce Pearl Magic, a channel that is truly Ugandan with a focus on Ugandan content. This is going to additional value to our DStv subscribers in terms of resonance with a channel that they can claim ownership to.”

Pearl Magic TV officially hit the airwaves on Monday and airs on DStv channel 161 while GOtv subscribers can watch it on channel 304. The channel is restricted to East Africa only.

Mariam Ndagire, a local film director and actress, has expressed excitement about the new TV channel noting that this will be another big platform to showcase Ugandan films and culture.

“This is a platform we as filmmakers have yearned for for a longtime. Now that we have a home for our content, we should fully capitalize on it by ensuring we put out quality work that will meet expectations of the viewers. This will also be another way to promote Uganda by using the TV channel to showcase our culture to the rest of the world.” She said.
