    Music Is Not Made In Bedrooms – Musician Cindy Speaks Out On Fresh Daddy Rape Allegations, Here Is Her Advice To Young Female Artistes…

    Renowned musician Cinderella Sanyu has emphasized that there is no music in bedrooms and she doesn’t understand how this became a norm in the music industry.

    Cindy’s statements follow an allegation that involved singer Mutabazi Paul alias Fresh daddy who is accused of raping a 17-year-old girl on condition of growing her music career.

    Ndagire, a 17-year-old confessed that Fresh Daddy drove her to Busega, a Kampala suburb to a place she called “Gardens” in her narration.

    “I didn’t want to enter into the Gardens because I thought we were going to sit outside, when we entered, he paid for the room and told me we should enter. I asked him, what are we going to do? And he told me he wants to rest. I told him I want to stay outside; he told me to enter because it will look bad if I remain outside,” she said.

    She added, “When I entered, he closed (the door) and told me to undress. I asked him why he wants me to undress.

    “Then he told me, do what I have told you if you want me to become your manager. I refused and he removed my clothes, pushed me onto the bed, did what he wanted, opened the room and we left.”

    Although efforts to reach Fresh daddy were futile since he refused to pick our calls, theGrapevine managed to talk to the Uganda Musician Association (UMA) president, Cinderella Sanyu who condemned the act.

    Cindy warned that she has never seen music being authored in bedroom.

    Following other cases of rape in the music industry, Cindy now insists that it is time female artists stop reporting such issues of rape on social media and seek legal advice.

    “It is becoming a norm because we keep putting it on social media and yet it can’t help one get justice,” she said.

    Cindy added that there is need to have an awareness campaign to educate females about their rights.

    “I don’t think most females are aware of their rights because at the moment it looks like they don’t have any choice, it’s either you give your body or give up on your career so there is need to raise awareness.

    “We need to start the awareness and do away with such cases so that the children who plan to join the industry don’t find it as a norm. So many girls are facing it and they don’t know what to do but instead report on social media and they are not helped since there is no law on social media and no police at all.”

    Cindy further advised the young children who would want to join the music industry not to do it on their own.

    “There are great artists like Winnie Nwagi who started out with her mother supporting her, even me I started with my mother. There is always someone older to protect you or advise you in one way or the other.”

    She maintained that at this point, the best way to do this is to register as a member of UMA because they will be protected.

    She propounded, “As a member of UMA you are protected because we have a group of lawyers but if you are not yet a member and you have started out, don’t be alone. People are more reserved when you are with an adult but if you show up alone, you become vulnerable.”

    She further emphasized that music should not be carried out in bedrooms, hotels or lounges because there is no music that happens there.

    Cindy divulged that as UMA, they have a lady called Ms. Nabwami, an artist and a grown woman who handles all issues to do with women affairs.

    “Please come and report such cases, we have a team of lawyers and people who can help you and those who can help now not in the future. Anything to do with musicians come and report we shall fight for you. But you have to bring your issue to us, we won’t chase anyone.”

    PICTURES:  Pastor Bujjingo Fills Up Kololo Grounds During Independence Night Prayers; Pr. Kayiwa Asks His Brother Kato Lubwama To Get Saved…

    Published

    on

    Thousands of believers flocked Kololo Independence grounds to Pray, Praise and worship the Almighty God.

    This was during the Independence Night prayers organised by House of Prayer Ministries International pastor, Aloysious Bujjingo.

    Believers from different parts of the country and abroad withstood the rain to worship and pray from Friday 6:00am to Saturday 6:00am.

    Independence night prayers are organized every year every year towards independence.

    Pr. Bujjingo revealed that just like Uganda was able to get independence in 1962 from the British, he decided to organise these prayers to pray for believers so that they are liberated from whatever is distressing their lives.

    The theme for this year’s prayers was ‘Pursue, Overtake and Recover All’, from 1 Samuel 30:8 where King David inquired from God concerning launching an attack on Israel’s enemy, the Amalekites, “Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And He answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”

    Pr. Bujjingo told believers that through constant prayer, trust and faith in the Almighty God, He will give them victory in anything that they need and pray for including fighting their enemies both seen and unseen just like He did for David.

    He further told believers to always depend and rely fully on God for a good life here on earth and also for the inheritance of eternal life.

    Believers were seen in deep prayer with some rolling on the floor as they were delivered from demons.

    During prayers, Pr. Bujjingo invited his spiritual father, Pr. Simeon Kayiwa, the Vice Chancellor for Kayiwa University who appreciated him so much for saving his brother former Member of Parliament, Kato Lubwama.

    Through a song, Pr. Simeon noted that Lubwama loves Pr. Bujjingo so much that he (Lubwama) tried to understand how to pray.

    “I know most of you people were not aware that Kato Lubwama is my biological brother and that we share the same mother,” he said.

    He added, “I know he is not saved but I believe one day he will because he loves you (Bujjingo) so much. Thank you for loving him too.”

    Bujjingo prayed through the rain which started at 2:00pm and stopped at 5;00pm leaving many socked in water but that did not stop them from worshiping and praying to God.

    During the night prayers at 11:00pm, Bujjingo introduced his wife, Suzan Makula and the couple excited believers when they danced the “kinyarwanda dance”.

    Over 2000 people gave their lives to Jesus Christ.

    Where Is My Brother And Cousin Who You Picked From Our Home In A Drone? Former NBS Journalist Tasks UPDF…

    Published

    Jornalist Bahati Remmy and UPDF spokesperson Brig. Felix Kulayigye (R)

    Former NBS journalist, Remmy Bahati has questioned government over the unlawful arrest and detention of her relatives.

    Bahati alleges that her family fell victim to the drone abductions yesterday.

    She revealed that armed plain clothed men driving a drone with no plates stormed her 76-year-old father’s house in Fort Portal City under the guise of searching for ‘guns’.

    “They didn’t find any (guns) and abducted my brother, cousin and his friend who was visiting. Their whereabouts are unknown. Help me find them,” she added.

    The US-based journalist has since pleaded with the defence Spokesperson, Brig. Felix Kulayigye to investigate the matter and help her find her family members.

    “My dad has been going from one police station to the other looking for them but no luck. I demand to know the whereabouts of my brother, cousin and friend identified as Abala.”

    In response to her cry, Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) Spokesperson, Brig. Felix Kulayigye revealed that last evening, the flying squad arrested a one Allan who has been masquerading as a soldier.

    “Police flying Squad assisted by other security agencies carried out an operation to apprehend criminals who have been masquerading in military attires, conning people in & around Fort Portal City. On a tip off, one Kanyesige Allan, main suspect, was netted in Semuliki Lodge and Bar with a lady accomplice, Peace Sudai.”

    “On brief interrogation, he led the security team to the home of Katungi Kelvin, claiming to be his place of aboard. Katungi Kelvin was also on the wanted list as an associate. He too was apprehended. Two other associates Mugisa lsaaya and Asa ba Abdulatif were also arrested. They are all detained at CPS Fort Portal.” UPDF spokesperson said in a statement.

    However, Bahati told the UPDF Spokesperson that none of the people mentioned is a relative to her.

    “None of the pictures of the suspects shared by UPDF is related to me. UPDF don’t play games with me. I need to know where my brother is. Period! The unlawful detentions, torture and abductions must stop.”

    “Where is my brother Mr. Katungi Kelvin, My cousin Mugume Latif and their friend Identified as Abala who you picked up from home in a drone?” she asked.

    UPDF responded to her that, “I did not say they are your relatives, we have shown you those that we arrested from Fort Portal. That’s all.”

    This comes after a number of alleged abductions of different opposition supporters in the infamous drones.

    National Unity Platform (NUP) president, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine recently demanded the release of these victims dead or alive.

    He noted, “The Drones Are Back.” These past three weeks, 15 of our people have been abducted by state operatives. Most are still missing. Others were brought to court days or weeks later, limping as a result of grave torture.”

    I Have Not Asked Anyone To Bail Me Out, I Will Rise Again Like Job In The Bible – Kusasira Tells Netizens Celebrating Her Demise…

    Published

    on

    Musician Catherine Kusasira

    Senior Presidential advisor and musician Catherine Kusasira has blasted those celebrating her demise.

    This week Cranima Associates auctioned the musician’s house for failing to clear her loan.

    “Upon instructions from our client a registered Mortgagee, we shall proceed to sell the under mentioned property and developments thereon if any, after the expiry of the thirty (30) days from the date of this notice or thereafter unless the mortgagor/debtor, pays all monies owed to our client, plus our fees and costs incurred in the process,” the advert read.

    Kusasira has now assured haters that he doesn’t need them to bail her out because she has not asked for their help.

    “I have not yet asked anyone to bail me out because people are haters. You are saying I was given a lot of money. State House did not give me that money that you saw me showing off with, it is Balaam who gave me that money. State House does not give old notes,” she noted.

    She added, “But what I know is I’m a strong woman, if the house has gone it is okay. I will get another one. I believe that the God who gave me these things will bring them back.

    “I want to be like Job in the Bible, Job was a believer who never lost his faith in God. Even when they take everything, I will never stop supporting President Museveni.”

    However, blogger Ibrahim Tusubira alias Isma Olaxess consoled his fellow NRM die-hard that it is normal for one to make wrong decisions in business.

    “There factors that lead to such problems like financial discipline. When one holds money that they have never held, they start to spend it like nothing and you feel like your life is changing drastically.”

    Olaxess further advised Kusasira that financial discipline is required in business especially when one gets a lot of money.

    Isma sarcastically told Kusasira that if Balaam gave her money at the start, she should go back to him for more.

    “Kusasira said she is a strong woman. Let her find her friends who helped her in the first place to bail her out.”

    He furthermore adduced that people should stop talking about NRM money being cursed.

    “Won’t we drive nice cars; won’t we sit in aeroplanes, because hospitals are not built? They should understand that those hospitals won’t employ us,” Isma said.
