    Published

    on

    On 9th March 2019, the auditions of the highly publicised Miss Curvy beauty pageant took place at Bukessa based club Ambiance. Women with flesh flocked Club Ambiance to showcase what their mamas gave them.

    The competition organiser Ann Mungoma told the Grapevine that over 400 girls and women took part in the auditions but they managed to pick only 30. Some of them were dropped because they were above the age of 35. The final event will be held on 26th April 2019 where the winner will walk away with a brand-new car and cash. The Grapevine managed to talk to some of the contestants who told us why they took part in the auditions:

    Mariam Namukasa: I was brought by my friend who is a nursery school teacher. I decided to join miss curvy beauty pageant to show my husband who left me because of my size that I have ‘work’.

    Among Esther Rihanna: I have always wanted to be a model but it was impossible because of my size, since they wanted the small girls. When they introduced this beauty pageant, I decided to show them what my mama gave me.

    Nambatta Milly: I have come out because i have always wanted to win miss Uganda beauty pageant and couldn’t pass the auditions because of my size. I have embraced this since i am shaped.

    Nakawuki Brenda Mugerwa: First, I love myself, secondly, I have what it takes to contest in this pageant. I want to show all those that talk ill about big sized women that we can do something.

    Nakkazibe Linda: Many people talk badly about fat people and their bodies, this makes some of these people ashamed, I want to change that mind set.

    Ayebare Joanna: Am here because people have been laughing and isolating me. My teachers and father have always been telling me that i am not going to get married soon because of my size.

    Nakkazi Sumaiah: Many people used to backbite and laugh at me because of my size. This beauty Pageant has instilled some confidence in me.

    Awori Esther: I have what it takes to run for miss curvy Uganda. Some men look at us as sex objects but I want to change their mindset and show them that we are also beautiful in our own way.

    Spice Diana Saga Takes New Twist; Family Of Murdered Boy In Bitter Row With LC3 After Leaked Audio To Musician’s Manager…

    Published

    on

    The family of the late Henry Nsamba (27), who was allegedly murdered at renowned musician Hajara Namukwaya alias Spice Diana’s home in Makindye, Salaama road, Kyamula zone is now in a bitter war with the area LC3 boss, Jacob Akuguzibwe alias Jacob Omutuuze after allegedly leaking his (Jacob) audio to Spice’s manager, Roger Lubega.

    In the audio that leaked, Jacob Omutuuze was advising the deceased’s father and sister on what to perfectly execute their case.

    Speaking to journalists on 26th July, Jacob noted that after he heard about the incident, he immediately contacted Spice Diana’s manager since he has known the musician for over 17years and her manager for over 12 years.

    Jacob said that he is also a friend to the deceased’s family and so it was easy to get clear information from all parties.

    “By the time the incident happened, I was in Fort Portal when the deceased’s father Johnson Matovu contacted me and told me that my friend Spice had murdered his son,” he narrated.

    He noted that when he came back to Kampala, he requested to meet Matovu but it was not possible at that point because he was handling the case of his son’s killing with police.

    He added, “So, I decided to call manager Roger and asked to meet him so that we can talk about the allegation which he accepted. When I met him, he narrated to me their side of the story and on that same day I met Matovu and his daughter to also tell me what they knew.”

    “When I met them, I told them what Roger had told me. After, they narrated to me their side of the story, I sided with them and advised them even though Spice and her manager have been my good friends for a long time.”

    He divulged, “But what really annoyed me, after we had talked with the deceased’s family, Kukiriza Ketra, the deceased’s sister recorded my words and sent them to manager Roger. What is really disturbing my mind now is how do you tell me that Roger killed your brother but go ahead to send him whatever I talked with you.”

    Jacob asserted that when Roger got the audio, he called many people who called him (Jacob) blaming him for what he had done.

    He added, “Kenzo, being among the people who called me asked me why I did that to Spice Diana and I explained to him that I did it for the good of my area. When it comes to my people who voted for me, I put friendship aside.

    “But from that time, I gave up on Ketra’s family. However, what really disappointed me more is Ketra coming up and claiming that I have not done enough to help them with the case.”

    However, when contacted by theGrapevine, Ketra denied the allegations claiming that she has never met manager Roger or even set an eye on him.

    “I just hear about manager Roger; I don’t even know him. I have never even sent him any audio. The only person I sent Jacob’s audio was the police person who was handling our case,” she told theGrapevine.

    Jacob has however vowed never to involve himself in the case and asked the deceased’s family to put him out of their case.
