Why I Grabbed Mic From Fille: I Found Her With Nothing And Helped Her Reach Where She Is – Mc Kats Fires Back At Ex Wife



After a scuffle that happened yesterday at one of the happening places in Kampala between singer Fille Mutoni and the Ex-boyfriend MC Kats, Kats has finally come out to explain why he behaved the way he did in the video that is spreading like wild fire on social media.

A video has gone viral showing MC Kats grabbing a microphone from Fille while performing her hit song Love Again. While grabbing a mic from her, Kats said, “I am bigger than you. I can’t stand your humiliation any more, I found you with nothing and I put you where you are now. You should bare that in mind. We need respect for each other and you should know that our child will ask you one time about her father and it will remain me,” Kats told Fille.

In a phone interview with the Grapevine, the NBS TV After 5 presenter says he couldn’t stand the humiliation from his former girlfriend that’s why he stormed the stage and grabbed the mic from her.

Very many people are reacting on the video with some criticizing Kats for his actions while others are supporting him saying that they would do the same. Fille’s fans have even gone ahead to warn Kats that he could end up in prison if he doesn’t stop those acts.

However, when we contacted Fille Mutoni, she said that she cannot give any comment on what happened adding that she never expected that from the father of her kids.

STOP THE STUPID EXCUSES, SIGN THE DIVORCE PAPERS: For 15 Years I Have Watched You Sleep With Our House Maids And My Friends, You Openly Told Me That You Can’t Survive 2 Days Without Sex – The Shongas At War



Dorothy Shonga, the wife to businessman Herbert Shonga has told him to stop giving excuses but sign the divorce papers.

Dorothy blames her husband Shonga for neglecting their kids and entering every skirt that crosses his path.

She said, “After a numerous public disrespect by my husband and father of my children, I felt betrayed by the man I have known for over 13 years. At one moment, he asked for apology and showed remorse and for the sake of our children and marriage vows, I thought we could make it work. But he kept disrespecting me, we had a family meeting where his family asked me to give him another chance for the devil was using him. Whichever demons that found refugee in him, can’t be uprooted and not even prayers can stop him. Many infidelity issues came up and when i confronted him, he openly told me that he can’t survive 2 days without sex. It came to my realization that i didn’t know the man i married and lived with for over 15years. As a mother with young children to raise, i decided to put my children first and living in the world with deadly incurable diseases i didnt want to regret later. So as much this was going to be hard on my children, they understood that their mother was not happy. They witnessed the disrespect and i didn’t want to raise young men who will disrespect their wives. My daughter needed to see a mother who stands for what’s right. Am a Christian, I believed in Till death do us part but my husband took that for granted. He assumed since I loved him, I would never file for divorce and i would keep taking him back. I contacted my lawyers and decided to dissolve our marriage due to infidelity. Despite the fact that my husband has begged me endlessly to give him the last chance, my mind was made up and my children are ok with it. So, Herbert Shonga as you continue to behave like a free man, please am begging you to sign the divorce papers. You can’t continue to beg me for forgiveness in private and act like you are free publicly. My lawyers have summoned you a number of times, I have come to your house to get your signature and you have refused to sign claiming you still love your family. Am sorry that boat has sailed and you can’t change my mind. Sign the papers and move on and date freely. I have moved on from this marriage and in a happy place and my children are happy too.”

“Sign the papers and stop having stupid excuses claiming you want your family back. You will sign those papers, am done and will never look back. Enjoy your prostitutes and new-found girlfriends.

And after this, am coming for both cars because the purchase money transferred directly from my account and both log books are in my names. Coz u drive them in Kampala to show off doesn’t make u the purchaser. I have seen your prostitutes driving the cars as well u forgot their genesis. I spend nights in my bed and wear my clothes as i hassle to take care of our children. Your children are living a good life because i work so hard for them as you look for skirts to undress.

Enough is Enough. You have ashamed me and made me a laughing stock on social media coz you cant keep your pants closed for a second. Sign the papers and you are free to live as a freelancer coz you have always told me you prefer being one

I need to be happy again and you won’t stop me,” Dorothy added.

“Herbert Shonga, you were never taught that when a nose is over pressed it bleeds. Just seen your live video where you claimed you refused to sign the divorce papers because they are fake coz we got married in Uganda. You forget you are a citizen of Malawi too and you won’t run away from this. I have attached your passport in case you have forgotten you have one. For 15 years i have watched you sleep with our house maids, my friends and everyone you came across. I have forgiven you for 15 years thinking you will change, i was wrong. You thought am your toy coz i always took you back for the sake of our children. Now the nose you pressed has bled profusely for no blood is left,” she said.
