David Lutalo’s concert that took on Friday at Lugogo cricket oval was an instant success. According to some of the organisers who anonymously spoke to the Grapevine, the VIP seats were already booked by Wednesday.

Being a lady’s man, Lutalo’s concert was filled with mostly ladies. He went on stage at around 10pm and some women got out of control due to his lovely music and voice, most of them wanted to dance with him on stage.

Below are some of the pictures:

MISS UGANDA, THE PICTURES YOU MISSED: From A Mother Of 4 Being Bitter Over Being Called Mama To Crowning The Wrong Miss Pulse..

Published

on

OK, we all know Miss Uganda 2019 took Place on Friday evening at the Serena Hotel.

We also know that the chief judge was Zari Hassan Tlale and the Master of Ceremony (MC) was Anita Fabiola.

We know that Zari was handed an envelope that had the names of the winner but she shoved the envelope on Anita Fabiola’s waist area, almost tearing her Tina Brad dress and telling her how she does not do admin work.

Zari, a mother of five was angered by Fabiola calling her Mama (mother).

We also know that the Miss Pulse/Miss Popularity prize was given to the wrong person after mistakes were made during the tabulation of results. By The way, how sure are we that we have the right Miss Uganda and that there was no mistake in tabulation?

Anyway, what do we know, we won’t go into those battles, we will focus on the beauty pageant.

Eehh… before we forget, Oliver Nakakande was crowned as winner of Miss Uganda 2019/2020.

Here are some of the pictures you missed…

How Greedy Men Are Failing Kabaka Radio And TV: We Are Paid Peanuts And It Comes Late, The Bosses Are Running Away With Sacks – Zambali Departure From BBS TV To Nbs Exposes Rot At Bulange

Buganda Kingdom owned television BBS TV board of Directors are receiving frequent and constant phone calls from Buganda chiefs asking them why their favorite news anchor Zambali Bulasio Mukasa left. 

Sources at the Masengere house-based BBS TV have told The Grapevine that clan heads in Buganda, county chiefs and Buganda kingdom ministers were not happy with Zambali’s departure from the kingdom’s TV to Kin Kariisa’s NBS TV because he was a very big brand who inspired young Baganda to work for their king.

“I was surprised to see the way people were concerned over Zambali’s departure, even the kingdom ministers wanted an explanation from the board,” our credible source revealed.

When asked why the so called Zambali supporters don’t put to task the Chief Executive officer of the television to explain, because he is responsible for the day to day running of the television instead of running to the board, the source said that most of the top Buganda ministers feel the CEO has no powers, and the board members are the real people running the show.

 A senior reporter at BBS TV revealed to this website that when NBS TV approached Zambali, he first talked to his senior friends at CBS radio and BBS for advice.

“I advised my man to go and look for greener pastures, you know here we enjoy prestige that we are working for the king and always see him whenever he comes to office but we are poorly paid. People out there think that we are highly paid which is wrong, we sometimes even spend three months without pay even though they pay after some time,” a very senior journalist at BBS TV told the Grapevine.

He further told us that many workers at BBS TV are frustrated because while they are receiving peanuts, which come late sometimes, their bosses are walking away with bags of money.

The senior journalist gave Zambali as an example saying CBS radio is dying from the inside because of mismanagement from some top bosses.

“All Zambali’s friends told him that if he refuses the NBS offer, he will die poor and miserable like sports presenter and musician Mark Augustine Makumbi and Mukiibi  Serunjogi died, or suffer humiliation like CBS sports commentator Yusuf Baliruno. Baliruno recently suffered humiliation during his illness at Kiruddu hospital when his employers first failed to offer him any medical assistance until his matter became the talk of town,” the source added.

When Ono Bwino newspaper, a Luganda weekly paper ran Baliruno’s story and confession showing how CBS and Mengo establishment neglected him at the time when he needed them most, he was bitterly blasted by his bosses asking him why he ran to the media that he was not helped.

Sources told the Grapevine that it’s against such background and advice from friends that Zambali decided to tender in his resignation letter to his bosses at Masengere.

Our sources further told us that the BBS management tried to convince Zambali in vain. “It was a very hard time for Zambali because he was promised a salary increment, they even promised to pay him on time and a promotion but the man had already made up his mind after meeting with Joel Kigonzi, NBS TV’s chief strategist,” the source added.

At NBS TV, Zambali faces an uphill task of out competing NTV’s new recruit Sandra Nakiwala (from UBC TV).  According to viewership data from Ipsos and other sources, NTV’s Akawungezi news bulletin at 7:00pm beats NBS’s Amasengejje (also at the same time) and Kaliisa has been scratching his head for someone who can favorably compete with NTV’s winning team of Faridah Nakazibwe, Solomon Kaweesa and Walusimbi Frank.

We now wait to see if NTV team that has been boosted with the addition of Sandra Nakiwala will beat NBS TV’s Zambali, Joyce Bagala and Ismail Sembatya.
