The trend of the music industry in Uganda is as divided as salt and sugar. We have artistes who can break the law and go away with it and others, even a slight mistake ends you in the coolers.
When they visit the local hung outs, they make sure that even the bar toilet cleaner recognises their presence. Below are the untouchables :
Iryn Namubiru - WOW! Arguably Uganda's best performer on stage but how does she do it? Well if you want to find out, do not miss her shows as she will treat you to some of the most erotic dances ever.
Recently she gave our very own VP Mahogany scrotal eruptions with her wet kisses which mesmerised him. We believe that her association with the top guns makes her ply her trade in music without fearing the likes of Nsaba Buturo.
Sheeba - She has done it all. Need we say anything from what we have seen in the tabloids of recent? Well, for all our readers who may not know who she is , Sheebah os one of the former Obsessions girls who has established herself in the music industry, she has established nude dancers (Kimansulo) and since Nsaba Buturo, the Minister of Ethics had banned it in all the pubs and bars, Sheeba nad group go on doing it in different hangouts in the city and the outskirts.
Does the law affect her? May be not.
Bobi Wine - Well known for his popular music and entertainment, has had so many controversies surrounding his life inside and outside his music. From members leaving the group to beefing with fellow artistes and most notably punching up Bebe Cool some time back in a music show organized at Nakivubo.
He goes on to confess on how he bribes police men to release him after committing crimes in his Mr. Money song.
Chameleone - The self proclaimed doctor has almost biffed up with everyone including his own father. What the Hell! Chameleone has fought in pubs, bars and several hangouts beating up on everybody who annoys him without forgetting his own brother, Weasel recently, snoops landed on him trying to hit Mowzey Radio.
Truth of the matter is that the skinny musician always goes away with it without being punished. We don;t know whether his behaviour is acceptable by our law or the law is soft on him.
Bebe Cool - The self proclaimed "Big Size" had the toughest year 2010. From crying out for Zuena, fights with Bobi Wine, Shootings and many calamities which caused problems to his life to Zuena's nude pictures in the tabloid.
Well like Chammeleone and Bobi, Big Size is also known for cat fights with fellow artistes and sometimes fans that he says provoke him. The big fish in the police will never come for him and if they do, it is only for a few questions and the dude is free.
Recently he has been so close to Sevo over the shootings at the Centenary Park. The big man went on to foot his hospital bills in Uganda and the USA where he had the operations. Do we need to say anything more about his size.
Ragga Dee - He calls himself "JJAJJA Wa Music" in Uganda. Ragga Dee is one of the most respected musicians today and this of course goes hand in hand with his works. Despite the fact that he hardly involves himself in cat fights with other musicians or fans, Ragga is also untouchable of sorts amongst the musicians.
When it comes to hanging out, the dude normally moves with a fleet of guys especially in popular hangouts and makes sure that everyone around notices his presence. Talk of being jjajja and recognition.

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.

Well, they don't! The things that these girls go through in the name of making it to the top is a gory tale of rape, molestation, abuse, exploitation among others. From the time they think to themselves 'I should pursue a music career' to the time they actually have their songs enjoy airplay and club play; they will have paid a big fee.
In most cases not just monetary! We explore some of the things that these girls have to go through all in the name of fame.
Music Producers - Not so many of them will need a songwriter, to begin with, because when they are starting out, they are so ambitious they write their own songs and most times they have no idea how horrible they sound (no offense!) Armed with her lyrics and bad vocals (or good), they head to the studio.
If this producer does not come out to ask for sex, he will avail studio time only at night with the two of them in the studio. Some girls have been raped in studios in the wee hours of the morning.
Exploitive Managers - When it comes to managers, they use the young upcoming artistes as their toys. This is the very reason girl groups like Wafagio have new members every three months. There are so many exploitation stories especially with girl groups which are managed by men. Sheebah Karungi left Obsessions because she was left out of songs and parts in the musicals because she did not give in to such advances.
Opportunistic DJs, Radio and TV presenters/ music controllers - It is one thing to produce a song; it is a whole other thing when it comes to have it play on Radio, TV or in Club. It is a hustle, you move from one Radio to another. And these work on the principle of 'Be good to me, and I'll be good to you!'
Being new most of these girls don't have money to give out to bribe their music onto the playlist. - So some of them or (most of them innocents) resort to the one form of payment that they don't need money for- God-given form of payment.
Graby Sponsors/promoters - Now these are the people that hold the key to these artistes making any kind of money from their music. And like everyone on the food chain, they need their cut. As if what they make on the side is not enough, they want it too.
Frenzied Fans - 'There is this group that believes you owe them for being your fans. So they will grab you, grapple, touch you in embarrassing places. Yet you don't want to snap at them because you have a small fan and you are trying to build it,' says one of the upcoming artistes.
Indecency - Do you ever wonder why HB Toxic's Hellen Lukoma and Nambi Brenda dress the way they do? Oh why most of us know how Margla dresses and we can't tell what she sings? Of late is like an unwritten rule that to get on stage to entertain, you have to dress in almost nothing.
Some of them have mastered the art of bad dressing to take attention from their bad singing or lack of entertainment skills. You will see many Lady Gaga clones dressed in a bikini on events that are not at the beach.

Although feet are often considered as an unusual fetish, they can in fact be very sensual. Feet are incredibly sensitive, and playful couples will sometimes indulge in a little bit of 'footsie' play as a way to flirt with each other in secret, which makes it a little extra mischievous and fun.
So what is the secret behind this obsession?
Chris, an aphrodisiac - I love a gal who has nice feet. I admit I have a foot fetish. I love it when a girl gets her nails done, but a lot of girls don't really have nice feet. Its very personal but I always pay attention to a gals feet.
I like when a girl gets her toe nails polished. I once dated a babe for few months because of her feet. It's kind of lovely too. Gals please take care of those feet and wear sandals to get noticed.
Charles - Among the physical qualities I look for in a gal....the toes come first. She has to have nice toes. Beautiful toes are a turn-on.
Penny - Clean and beautiful feet turn me on. I first check out the feet before doing anything. If he passes that test then I proceed to the teeth for the crowning moment.
Juliet - Why would I want ginger like toes? Of course I want a guy who has beautiful feet.
Remember, any part o your body can be utilised in a way to enhance your relationship, your love life and even your sex life. Enjoy these tips or even create some of your ownt to make your feet a neat part of your day-to-day pleasures.

They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, but we all agree that there are basic standards that cannot be debated about. Some people are simply more beautiful than others. Today, we look at who Uganda's most beautiful female celebrities are.
They may not meet all your requirements but they have something special about them that sends men talking and that's their bodies. Enjoy optically!
Grace Nakimera - She has a hot body and she is photogenic. She has nice boobs to supplement the body although there has been debate on whether she had a boob job, but she says they are all natural. She dresses the body the right way. The 'Kawonawo' star exudes sex appeal without compromising intelligence and independence.
Mya Bagenda - She has that look and body every model craves for; tucked in tummy, right curves with no extra hips or buttocks. What the light-skinned Blu3 singer may lack in vocals is well compensated for in the body and looks. Surely we are missing her from the music scene as she is out on maternity leave.
Zari Hassan - Few people can give birth to three children and still look as hot as Zari. The South African based singer is simply gorgeous with that body. Her heritage involves many countries with her maternal grandfather being Indian with a Ugandan wife; her paternal grandfather is Somali with a Burundian wife.
Zuena Kirema - She is rated as one of Uganda's sexiest women. Her complexion makes her attractive with or without makeup. She has graced more newspaper pages than any other woman. The thing is that this mother of two knows her strong supplementary points- her smooth legs and big eyes. Who can blame Bebe Cool for fighting to get her back?
Desire Luzinda - She is the embodiment of African beauty. The singer has a hot body complete with hips and a flat tummy. That added to her natural dark beauty, her first name suits her. She is definitely desirable and we now know why several tycoons are craving to have a piece of her.

A new year resolution is a pledge that an individual makes to achieve a personal goal, project, or the reforming of a habit. this lifestyle is generally interpreted as advantageous. It can also be objective someone sets out to accomplish in the year. Here is what our celebrities have set up to do this year.
Lindah Lisa - This year I am going to keep peace and harmony with everyone including my nemesis, attain all my goals I have for this year and live a better example in society not forgetting upgrading my professional skills and become a better public relations officer.
Judith Heard - Albert Enstein, "another definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again expecting a different result." This year , I intend to take positive steps in my life that will make me a better person, wife and mother. That in turn will help me bring positive change to the world I am living in.
Zari Hassan - I don't have lots of resolutions...I just have to be in the right place at the right time doing the right thing...let God give me wisdom. Who needs resolutions when God has the last word.
Carol Mugasha - I didn't make any resolutions per say this year, but I do hope and pray for more fruitful and a happier new year
Jackie Chandiru - I want to produce better music, broaden my fan base and be the best person I can be to my friends, family, fans and those very dear to me.
Doreen Kabareebe - This year, I intend to work hand in hand with the celebrity models and management team to make it to the top in Uganda and worldwide. I am gonna do my best.
Agatha Koffoko - To love God more not that I haven't been in love with him but to love him big time this year and continue with my afro music.
Bina Baby - My resolution this year is to buy a plot of land and build a mega house on it aftyer I fullfilled last year's of buying a car.
Sheebah Karungi - This year, I want to do more music and hope to open up my own fashion house. I want also to do some charity work and then have more fun

Others are made through learning music in schools and universities but currently in Uganda, there is a new breed of those that want to buy their way to the top charts. TGIF today unearths those 'artistes' who have no art per say and are using more money than talent to get a song.
Zari Hassan - Zari is without doubt the biggest Ugandan musician, who rides cars that are fuel guzzlers and cost a fortune. Although she masquerades as a singer, many people know her as one who pays that her song be played in club as she and her hubby dance away leaving their revellers to stare in disbelief.
Despite the media publicity her songs have not made it to any local charts. You want to know about Zari, It will be either about her showbiz lifestyle and wonder bum that her music.
Angela Katatumba - This supposed R&B songstress is the only daughter of the Honorary Consul of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, H.E Boney Katatumba and Gertrude Katatumba. Her parents are undoubtedly wealthy people and some of their dime and investments they have shared with her.
Although she claims to have started singing at the age of six, she has failed to command a really big following. Not recording for the best studios and advertising her songs has brought her a hit.
In fact she is known more as the British Council ambassador of climate change a role she should concentrate on and forget music if you ask me, seriously.
Mickie Wine - Back in the day, Bobi Wine injected dime in his brother Mickie Wine's hope of becoming a fully fledged singer. Year later, who knows Mickie for music and not being Bobi's brother?
Collabos with big artistes like Kenzo too have not helped him. It should be recalled that months ago, Bobi wanted to throw him out because the fella was \wasting' his money and not coming up with a hit.
HB Toxic - The former Obsessions babes should have remained in the group may be they would still be seen as singers. The group that comprises Helen Lukoma and Brenda Nambi has struggled to impress save for their sexy stage outfits.
Thanks to Talent256 whose manager makes sure they get to perform at high profile concerts and events as well as do collabos with established singers aside from the much publicized.
Henry Tigan - Suudi Lukwago, the Boston based owner of music promotion company Suudi Entertainment, was the one that brought Henry Tigan to the Ugandan Music Scene. And into his music. He did collabos with international stars like Marlon Usher but Tigan still didn't give Ugandans that song that never leaves their lips.
Though the two later fell out Tigan had already failed to use the money that was pumped into him to make it to the top and has since been forgotten.

Gaetano - Big Brother - He was probably the first person to bonk live while in Reality show Big Brother Africa season 1. He romped with South African housemate, the gorgeous Abby. From that moment, a then unknown, clean shaven Gaetano Jjuko Kagwa sporting a channel O beard became an instant hero.
The crowds that welcomed him at Entebbe airport has never been rivaled to the extent that the President was forced to ask his security operatives whether a new rebel group had sprung up suddenly in the middle of the city or a new political party headed by (Gii-tano as he called him).
He later invited him for dinner at State House. He has since got lucrative jobs with big TV and radio companies. Well if it wasn't for his romping prowess, he would be another unknown lad in Kampala that you wouldn't turn to have a second look at when you meet on the streets.
Barbie Kyagulanyi - What is Barbie's claim to a celeb status? Because she is Ghetto gladiator, Bobi Wine's wife. Could Ugandans have known known her had it not been her hubby's music talent; absolutely not. Where would she she be? Probably married with five kids in her district of Ntungamo.
Blu3 (Lillian, Chandiru and Cindy) - They were heralded by music pundits as one of the talented group of girls to ever grace the music scene. And rightly so because all the three have gone on to forge a serious music career.
But the question is; where would they be had it not been the Coca Cola pop stars talent search in 2004? One social critic told us; "When the three girls came, were first unearthed, you could hardly believe they could make it in music. They were talented but hardly the chics you could easily market basing on appearance."
Where would they be? Probably, Cindy would still be in Tororo where she was picked. Lillian and Chandiru would also be unknown party animals in the city
