Drop the Guns - It is believed that beef has helped some of our countrymen attain celebrity status. From hard hitting songs to spending luxuriously so they can be seen as better, richer, popular, our celebs have done it.
It is more like what was originally in the western world was imported to our local scene. Some, beef on order to screen to attract media attention and stay in the spot light, others beef out of ego or bonkmates.
But regardless of the cause some of these celebs have beefed for long and today TGIF would like to see them kiss and makeup.
Chameleone Vs Weasel - These brothers Joseph and Douglas Mayanja can't cross paths without throwing venomous insults at each other. Weasel accuses his elder brother Chameleoe who he will never forgive for raping his (Weasel's) babe some time back. These blood brothers need to come to terms.
Juliana Kanyomozi Vs Iryn Namubiru - Sincerely, it has been over two years since these two aging sexy babes began beefing. Their anger against each other stems way back in the days when Iryn deserted the duo and their music career and went with Frank her French man.
But more than a decade down the road, these two have become established musicians and deserve to call a truce and move on. It is not that Iryn is responsible for Juliana's being unlucky in love! We dare Juliana and Iryn to reunite and stage a reunion concert.
Judith Heard Vs Zari Hassan - Another classic case of egos clashing! The two top city socialites disapprove of each other's status, beauty and wealth. Nalongo Heard and Zari once exchanged gut wrenching insults on Facebook.Whether they beef, slender Judith Heard will not grow as big (size) as Zari and the reverse is true for Zari. So bury the hatchet already!
Navio Vs Atlas - The two hunky rappers do not approve of the other's rapping skills and this sparked off their beef. Sometime back, they exchanged blows outside Club Rouge.
Their music is not as hot as they are because most of their fans who by the way are babes, flock their shows and scream their lungs out not because they like what they are wrapping but rather because these guys are hot.
Sharon Nalukenge Vs Helen Lukoma - Sharon O accuses her former groupmate Helen Lukoma of poaching on her baby's father, Ronnie Mulindwa. Whether the accusations are true or not, it happened a long time a go and both have moved on.
Besides, Uganda' representative in the just concluded Big Brother Amplified Sharon O has already tight marked her territory by giving Ronnie Mulindwa a baby boy. She needs to stop being insecure and try being friends with Helen again.
Bebe Cool Vs Bobi Wine -There's has grown from beef to biff and is a classic case of clash of egos. They were once the best back then when Firebase was just starting where they even had a collabo 'Funtula' attacking fellow singer Jose Chameleone.
They later fell out due to unclear reasons. Nowadays Bebe and Bobi can't see eye to eye without going for each other's necks because each claims he is bigger than the other but who cares, the fans know better. They forget that the two have egos.

Jackie Chandiru - Oh my! Female artiste of the year? I'm not yet there but Iam glad I was nominated in that category. It means I can potentially be one. As far as nominations go, the awards were fine but it used to bother me that artistes got nominated in categories they shouldn't have been.
Mun*G - There must have been a network problem and my fans messages ere not going through. The fans know the truth though.
Navio - Exactly, I should have been nominated in that artiste of the year category or at least video of the year for 'Keep Moving'. Mith should have been in Hip Hop for his song 'Fire' and Mun*G really did well this year.
I guess the fans opinion is all that matters. It is good a neutral Ernst & Young handled the auditing and voting issues not PAM organizers. Fans have the last say.
Pastor Wilson Bugembe - Iam grateful to th fans because I did not expect to win anything this year. PAM Awards were fair and every winner deserved it. As for my category, Hilderman did well and Im happy for him because his song is good and I love it. He deserved to win by all means.
Toniks - Well I guess anyone who knows what RnB is can see that I am the only artiste in Uganda who really is supposed to appear in that category. The other nominees have made good music but it is not R&B. Surely how can the same song be in R&B and Afro Beat categories? So is it R&B or Afro Beat?
The bottom line is that 90% of Ugandan musicians are supposed to be in the same category and that is Afro Beat or Afro Pop. How can you put Tonik's 'That Gal' and Iryn Namubiru's Birowoozo, or Aziz Azion's ''Oxygen'' in the same category? Unless you have a hearing problem.
GNL Zamba - Well I was not in the country for the awarding ceremony but basing on what I have heard and read in the papers, I think that whoever sponsors PAM awards dictates the winners.
In the Hip Hop category that Iam interested in, Mun*G really deserved to win the two awards. Anyway, at the end of the day, there are always winners but there is always the next year for the losers. (Note: Snoops spotted GNL at the awards. Claiming he wasn't present is a lie).
Radio & Weasel - We are putting all our focus on the MTV and Channel O awards. We don't care about PAM awards.
Hilderman - I was very surprised because I did not expect to win. However personally Iam going by the public opinion and they say that the PAM was fair.
Vampino - Ugandan music can never progress if awards of recognition are being given to the wrong people.
Grace Nakimera - I am not going to lie. I do not know because I was not present at Lugogo for the awarding ceremony. My sister was wedding and I could not miss it for anything.
OS* Suna - There was an element of unfairness at the PAM Awards this year but I don't care about the awards. The fact that I was nominated means Iam already a winner because my hard work is being recognized.

Ugandan HIP hop star Navio looks to be destined for higher goals in the music industry. Snoops can reliably reveal that Navio teamed up with Nigerian singer, Mr. Flavour of the Ashawo fame for a tour of East African countries and he is surely smiling all the way to the bank.

Despite a lot of speculation and denial in several interviews, snoops have finally identified hip hop rapper Daniel Kigozi's baby maama. Sources revealed that the sexy babe is called Sophie Rusoke and hails from Fort Portal.
She is said to be from a Mutoro dad and a Danish mother. Sophie is the mother of Daniel aka Navio's son and the two having been dating each other for years now. They don't want to be seen in public together for reasons best known to them a close pal intimated to us.
Sophie has also been said to be a sister to Bianca, Goodlyfe Crew Weasel TV's girlfriend. Guess it is a tale of 'you can run but you can't hide'.

Hip Hop singers, Navio and Atlas feud is threatening to become the deadliest and bloodiest biff in the music industry. Just yesterday we revealed how Atlas had vowed to teach Navio a lesson he will never forget.
But as you read this, Atlas has upped his threats by vowing to shoot his nemesis if it gets to the worst. To make matters worse, pals close to Atlas claim he can easily access a rifle or rather he is close to people who own various guns.
It is alleged he is a son to one of the top army men in the Uganda People's Defence Forces (UPDF). This is however not confirmed as some people believe he is Ankole, Prince John Barigye's son.
It must be remembered that it is Atlas who gave fellow singer Dr. Jose Chameleone the AK47 rifle that he used while shooting his 'Vumilia' song video back in 2009. But still Navio isn't from a small background either.
His mom is Maggie Kigozi the president of Uganda Investment Authority (UIA). This certainly could be the greatest music battle for many years. A few weeks back, Atlas released a new Hip Hop single many believe is dissing Navio and on Friday while Navio was launching his 'Keep Moving' song in Club Rouge, the pair almost went native had it not been the bouncers who stepped in to separate them.
When Navio set his eyes on Atlas in the house, he (Navio) walked to him and politely said: "All I wanna know is what you want from me, Atlas." Atlas replied: "Step on de floor..." Navio says: "Ngalo?" Somehow this pissed off Atlas who does an uppercut on Navio.
A fight ensues and Navio's crew rain punches on Atlas but in no minute Club Rouge bouncers step up and foil the fight. The 'Ngalo' singer then moves out of the Club leaving Atlas swearing and cursing. "You will get shot I promise you."
Before this incident we are told Atlas had publicly declared Navio 'an ass nigger'. Rumour has it that Navio is busy in studio working on a track to counter Atlas. Could this turn out to be the bloodiest beef so far? Watch this space!

Singer Navio is perhaps the best Hip Hop artiste in the region going by his hot collaborations in the industry if tracks like "Stuttering" and "Hands across the World" are anything to go by.
Navio alongside artistes from eight African countries teamed up with R.Kelly and produced "Hands across the World" track that has gone ahead to top charts on the continent.
Just after that, Fefe Dobson from the US approached Navio to remix "Stuttering" which has branded Navio as one of Africa's best artistes. Straight from all that, Navio flew down to South Africa to shoot the video of his "Move Forward" track but little did he know it would climb African charts after such a short time.
The track as we speak, has gone five places from number ten to number five in three days and just last Saturday, the ratings had placed the track at number three with Cabo Snoop's "Prakatatumba" and "What's my name" by Rihanna and Drake taking peak positions. If by any chance, Navio's track ascends to number one, he will become the first Ugandan ever to top the playlist on Africa's most watched channel.
Great things surely come to those who have worked for them and certainly Navio is one of them. More articles on Navio

The Nawuliranga star who was out of the country on a holiday after his launch is back in town with a bang. The singer was spotted on Thursday at the Bukoto based bar, Cayenne with a Zungu chic.
Navio who has sipping his liquor looked so smitten with this babe and the two seemed to be deep in discussion about a secret affair which we couldn't figure out. We were also told the two have been spotted together at the Lumumba Avenue based Faze 2.
Our snoop who kept a close eye on the two told us that Navio couldn't let her go anywhere as he tight marked her. They were moving around the place while holding each other until they left the bar at 2am.
