MISS CURVY CONTESTANTS PHOTOS: Who Is The Bummiest Of Them All – Are These The Curviest Women In Uganda

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.

Let The Music Speak: Eddy Kenzo Brags About Being First Ugandan Musician To Appear On New York Times Square Billboard, To Feature Legendary Monique Seka…

Ugandan award-winning artiste and Big Talent boss, Edrisa Musuuza alias Eddy Kenzo has landed a mega music recording deal with Prime Music Partner, where he will feature legendary Monique Seka on her classical Missounwa.

Kenzo was so thrilled by the move and couldn’t hold back his excitement, but share it with his fans. He took to his social media platforms and wrote, “Pass by the New York Time square in the US, you will see your boy Eddy Kenzo in partnership with Prime Music Partner getting ready to release an African classic we all grew up enjoying titled Missounwa redone with Mama Monique Seka”

“The first Ugandan Musician to appear on the New York Time square billboard. Let the music speak,” he added.

Kenzo first received international attention in 2014 after the release of his 2014 single, “Sitya Loss” and an accompanying viral video that featured the Ghetto Kid.

Statistically, it costs a minimum of $5000 (approximately Ugx 18.5M) to appear on the New York Time Square Billboard for only 24hrs.

A few more days up on that square billboard implies a much more investment of more thousands of dollars daily. Prime Music partners must have then chosen to invest in Kenzo because they are confident the song will considerably make good sales in America to earn their money back in profits.

Kenzo is the first East African to reach that landmark, and only a few African artists have  achieved it because it’s so expensive and most of them are not known in America so it’s not easy for any music distribution company to invest big sums of money in an artist that isn’t known in America to appear at the time square billboard because they are always not sure of the financial results from that particular audience, they are business men who only invest were they expect good results.

Who Are You Influencing? You Are A School Dropout Like Me And You Would Be A Mother Of Five Now If Not For Rampant Abortions – Bad Black In New War With Sheila Gashumba…

Published

on

Former TV presenter, Sheilah Gashumba is embroiled in a heated war of words with Shanitah Namuyimba alias Bad Black, a controversial city socialite who self-proclaimed herself as the leader of prostitute in Uganda.

The verbal fight between the two escalated from Snapchat, a social media platform where Bad Black was mocked of landing zero advertising deals, to which she responded that she left the advertising business for Sheilah because the former TV presenter needs those deals more to survive with her boyfriend Marcus alias God’s Plan.

Bad Black had no chills until she reminded Sheilah that she’s also a school dropout like herself. She accused her of only backbiting her friends and that she’s too naive for life to sustain herself. “Brokenness and depression will kill you quick if you don’t immediately see a medical counsellor,” she mockingly warned.

“You don’t pay any bills, you have no responsibility, and first get out of your tiny room at your fathers house before you start bragging,” she added, saying that Sheilah fakes her lifestyle to keep up with the pressure of living an impressive and posh life.

Bad Black who also admits to regularly herself said Sheila’s abortion rate is worrying. ” You would be a mother of five now if not for your rampant abortions,” Bad Black said, referring to Sheila as “Mother of Grave”

Bad Black insinuated that Sheila’s accusations against her being a single mum beats her understanding because her own father is a very famous single father.

Sheilah in reiteration stood up to defend her boyfriend. She hit back at Bad Black saying no one can grant her any commercial advert endorsement because she’s so irrelevant she can’t influence anyone including herself.

Sheila also accused Bad Black of being so disrespectful to the hand that once fed her. She revealed that her boyfriend Marcus gave Bad Black money, paid her hospital bills and even  bought her alcohol.

Sheila who is also the only biological child to rich city businessman, Frank Gashumba said she was born lucky and has all the privileges to enjoy and spend her father’s money his she wishes because it’s her right.

“I can spend my father’s money how I want, I have no responsibilities and I work because I have the passion to work, not because I’m on pressure to fulfill obligations like you, I am not a mother like you” she said.

Renowned city socialite, Shanitah Namuyimba alias Bad Black who is famed for picking up controversial verbal fights lately has attacked Foreign Affairs Minister, Sam Kutesa and his family, accusing them of greed, corruption, injustice and reducing Uganda’s politics to a family matter.

The self-proclaimed prostitutes’ leader in Uganda who has no clear subscription or any affiliation to any political entity but randomly picks out her victims and attacks has trolled a numerous musical artistes and fellow socialites among other celebrities before following personal disputes, but for this particular case, the origin of Bad Black’s raging anger cannot be traced.

“This morning this has attracted my attention how my country Uganda is being destroyed by greediness, corruption, injustice, where by our motto  became useless, we must change it to ( for God and my stomach). This goes to Mr. Sam Kutesa Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Cabinet of Uganda,” Bad Black ranted.

Kutesa, who has held the ministerial position since 13 January 2005 has also maintained it for a whole 15 years, through three cabinet reshuffles.

He is also the elected Member of Parliament for Mawogola County in Sembabule District.

Bad Black in her complaint feels it’s time up now for the veteran politician and he should call it quits and yet he is still waving signs of going nowhere, besides backing his own daughter for a parliamentary seat.

“For all these years are you not satisfied? You have turned politics into a clan setting where people have to inherit property, kindly take back your daughter Shartsi Kutesa Musherure,” Bad Black fumed.
